Green Sun Rising
Charm Smothering Technique
Cost: 1(o)m; Type: Reflexive
Mins: Essence 2, Martial Arts 5
Prerequisite Charms: Power-Reaping Prana
Whenever a character the Hungry Ghost has previously injured activates an Essence Power, within Melee Range the Hungry Ghost can retaliate, draining away the motes used to fuel the ability. An anima-charged punch or kick lashes out, syphoning away a trail of red motes.
Treat this as a reflexive Martial Arts attack. Should the attack accrue overflow equal to the charm’s essence requirement, it does not take effect.
