Social Interactions Between Elohim

Social Interactions between elohim can further be defined by whether they are targeting an Ally, Enemy, or are Self-Targeting. 

In addition to the general factors such as Range, Social Interactions between elohim can be affected by the number of Targets and elohim nearby the Target. Social Interactions between elohim gain or lose Adjustments equal to the difference in Magnitude between the Targets. Targets within 7” of a friendly character with higher Magnitude than themselves can benefit from half the difference between their Magnitude (rounded down). When Targeting multiple elohim, combine their Magnitude.

An elohim can perform a Self-Targeted Social Interaction. Self-Targeted have a penalty of 2 Adjustments.

Herald sees a nearby ally being overwhelmed by the enemy. Herald tries to offer encouragement by calling out and reminding them that they are not alone. The Host decides this would be an Affirming Interaction. Herald’s has 1 Skill in Affirm/Aim giving a starting total of 1 Adjustment to the Check Roll. The targeted ally has a Composure of -1 to Affirm which adds 1 Adjustment in Herald's favor. Herald is 6” away from the Target, giving no Adjustment for Range. Herald and the Target are of the same Tier, so no Adjustments for that either. Herald gets 2 Adjustments to his Social Check Roll. 

{(Skill) + Composure + Range + Tier Difference = 2 Adjustments} 
{1 + 1 + 0 + 0 = 2}

Social Reactions

Social Interactions will elicit a base reaction that is universal, regardless of the specific kind of Interaction and also additional effects that are specific to the Interaction. 

Degrees of Success & Universal Outcomes

  • 7 or more Passes = Superb Success; strong reaction
  • 3-6 Passes = Success; moderate reaction
    • +/-1 Acquiescence
  • 1-2 Passes = Minor Success; minor reaction
    • 0 Acquiescence
  • 0 Passes - 2 Fails = Failure; Absence of any Reaction
    • 0 Acquiescence
  • 3 or more Fails = Superb Failure; slight opposing reaction
    • 1 Acquiescence removed or Assurance gained
