Charismatic Wisdom Special
This special skill cannot be improved by normal means. Instead,
when the cultist is first accepted, he gains a score in this
skill equal to his (INT+POW)-20. No category modifiers apply.
This skill may only be increased by research on the part of the
lay student himself. At any time, the student may attempt a
skill roll against his Charismatic Wisdom before a panel of
members of the inner circle. Success indicates that he is
accepted as a full initiate of the cult. If he fails, 3D6
percentiles is subtracted from his Charismatic Wisdom skill. If
he fumbles, then he dies during the test and his body is destroyed.
This skill has abosolutely no value outside of obtaining
membership in the Inner Circle of the cult. It is concerned
solely with knowledge of the inner cult secrets, which are
uninteresting and incomprehensible to outsiders.
If at any time a character's Charismatic Wisdom score drops to
0% or below, he is immediately released from the cult and cannot
return until he has fulfilled all the normal requirements. POW
previously sacrificed in acceptance does count towards his chances
Gods of Glorantha p46.
Rick Meints states that Sandy is always putting down the description
of this cult so feel free to substitute your own definition. I
personally dislike the first sentence of the second paragraph and
feel that the strength of one's draconic transformations should
depend on the Charismatic Wisdom score.
