Searing Essence eddies in the wake of the martial artist's movements. This charm supplements a dodge or parry roll, and may be invoked after the roll has been made. It creates an environmental damage effect which only the attacker who provoked the relevant defense roll suffers. The difficulty to resist this effect is (martial artist's Essence). An attacker who successfully resists suffers damage equal to the extra successes on the defense roll; one who fails the resistance roll suffers damage equal to the total successes on the defense roll. This damage is soaked as normal, but is rolled rather than applied directly, unlike most environmental damage.
