Prerequisite Charms: Bureau-Rectifying Method
Summary: As long as you can engineer a vaguely believable method of delivering them, you may issue orders to a group that they will believe came from their legitimate superiors.
With this Charm, the exalt can give any member of a group or organization incredibly believable false orders from a superior. To do so, the Solar must know the identity of someone in a position to command his targets (though he need only know enough to positively identify the orders' source to the targets.) He must then produce a vaguely believable vehicle for these orders — a messenger, a note, or some other viable source. As long as the messenger falls even slightly within the realm of believability, and the orders themselves do not fly completely in the face of the imitated leader's standard behavior, the recipients will not suspect in any way that the orders are false. If the targets confer with others at a later time, they may be able to determine that the orders were never given; however, they will still remember nothing unusual about the circumstances of receiving them.
