Long Finger of Hermes (•)
With this clause the changeling can determine the sexual orientation of everyone he can see clearly.

Cost: 1 Glamour
Dice Pool: Perception + Wyrd
Action: Instant
Catch: The Changeling uses this clause on someone that has done him physical harm.
Roll Results
Dramatic Failure: For the next full scene the changeling gets it all wrong thinking that those that are gay are straight, those straight are gay and those with no preference as having a preference.
Failure: The Contract fails and the changeling gets no idea of who is what.
Success: By spending one point of glamour the changeling knows the sexual orientation of those present. He knows where the person stands on the so call Kinsley Scale, who’s totally gay , who would never even think of it, etc. Each success on the dice gives the changeling for that scene bonuses to social rolls involving those he sees.
Exceptional Success: Not only can the changeling discern as above, but he also knows the subject(s) first significant sexual experience.

Roll Results
Dramatic Failure: The changeling not only is not able to communicate telepathically, but
Will not be able to do this clause with said individual for 24 hours.
Failure: Nothing happens. The Clause fails.
Success: The changeling can communicate with the person for one turn per success telepathically. This clause only works on humanoids or those that at one time where humanoids.

A subject that does not want to talk telepathically can sever it with a contested Stamina+ Resolve. While the changeling in no way controls the subject or is able to use other contracts through this one, the changeling can use skills.
Exceptional Success: Besides extra turns, the Changeling can use other contracts that deal with communication with the expenditure of one extra glamour point.

Seduction of the Cup Bearer (•••)
The Changeling makes himself desirable to the subject even if the subject hates him or is of the wrong sexual orientation.

Dice Pool: Manipulation + Wyrd minus subject’s resolve
Action: Reflexive contested
Catch: The changeling has no true feeling toward the subject.

Dramatic Failure: The subject is offended and might become violent. The subject is immune to the changeling's advances for the rest of the night.

Exceptional Success: The contract last for the next 24 hours or until the next sunrise pr sunset.

2. Give the roll the 8 again quality.
3 Make the roll an exceptional success on three instead of five successes.
Exceptional Success: On top of the above results, the changeling regains the spent willpower.

Dramatic Failure

Those who know the subject gets the ability to catch on with a Wits+ Investigation roll minus the changeling’s Wyrd. Note: Beings such as changelings and vampires cannot become pregnant if changed into a woman, nor can they inseminate if a man.
