Prerequisite Charms: Venomous Rumors Technique
Summary: As long as the charm remains active, the rumor you tell will be spread and most who hear it will be willing to believe it.
By dripping venom into the correct ears, the solar can create a rumor which refuses to yield its grip upon those who hear it. The solar need merely state an item of gossip to a willing listener, then activate this charm. This rumor may be true or false, but it must target a specific individual. The listener the solar first shares it with will forget the source she heard it from, and quickly repeat the story; within days, everyone who might be affected has heard the rumor — and, moreover, believes it. As long as the solar keeps the motes committed, the rumor will continue to spread, and those who hear it will be strongly biased towards believing it, even if it is ridiculous or nonsensical.
