Kindred of the East: Crimson Empires
Bone-Oil Kiss, lvl 3
Through the use of this rite, the Bone Dancer may cause a ghost to fall in love with him. The effect is quite strong, and for the duration of the rite, it is one of the ghost’s prime motive forces. The vampire must perform the several-hour rite over a small pot of so-called ‘bone oil’, which is carefully distilled under the full moon from bones, hallucinogenic mushrooms and various other cemetery favorites.
He must then apply it to his lips and kiss the ghost. The kiss need not be given willingly – it can be stolen or forced – but it must be on the lips. The love waxes and wanes with the moon, ending on the new moon after the kiss. Ghosts are quite wise to this power, which is often used by Bone Dancers hungry for companionship or the yin chi of the dead. Using it against those with powerful connections to the government of the Yellow Springs is ill-advised.
The vampire must make an intelligence + occult roll (diff 8) to distill the bone oil. After being kissed, the ghost must make a willpower roll, diff 9, or become deeply infatuated with the vampire. The more successes the vampire makes on the occult roll, the stronger the infatuation. One success means the ghost yearns for the vampire, three successes means she is hopelessly smitten, and five successes means the ghost will do almost anything the vampire says out of hopeless, helpless love.
In Wraith: the oblivion terms, the ghost gains a passion of Love (the bone dancer who kissed her) at a level equal to the number of successes rolled. There is enough oil to on pot of bone oil for one kiss, though some Shadow Songs carry veritable arsenals of the substance with them.
