Emotional Urging: Mind 2 (MtA p.207)

Practice: Ruling

Action: Instant and contested; target rolls Composure + Gnosis reflexively

Duration: Prolonged (one scene)

Aspect: Covert

Rote Pools: Mysterium Rote: Manipulation + Empathy + Mind vs. Composure + Gnosis

Guardians of the Veil Rote: Wits + Empathy + Mind vs. Composure + Gnosis

Description: The mage can project emotions. These feelings are more a suggestion than a mandate, though they are apt to be heeded if they make sense for the individual and situation. (Causing someone to feel sad when walking into a decrepit old house is reasonable and likely to be dismissed as a natural reaction, whereas making someone feel sadistic glee at the funeral of a sibling almost certainly causes the subject to question from whence that emotion came).

If the target is a mage with at least Mind 1 he might have an inkling via his Unseen Senses (see MtA p. 110) that he is manipulated. A reflexive Wits + Composure roll is made to sense the manipulation of his emotions. He can know nothing further unless he casts magic (such as “Third Eye,” MtA p. 206) to learn more. Most mages react by first erecting a “Mental Shield,” below.
