Sorry, Husband-Seducing Demon Dance- Core Solar Performance Charm, basically the tactical nuclear weapon of social situations- drop that and everyone whose mental DV you beat gets an Intimacy towards you.
We've got a pretty big group (too big to be feasible in anything other than a play-by-post game with maybe one post per player per day...)- my Dawn, a pair of Eclipses (one huntery, the other a bit of a dick (character, not player)), a ninja-style Night, a kung-fu Zenith in power armour, a fairly pacifist Defiler, an undercover Orichalcum Caste Alchemical (though none of us know that in character yet- we all think he's just a god-blood) and a Dragon King whose main aim is to awaken some of his fellows and form air cavalry.
The city we're in is Icehold, which I believe has a sentence or two in the Compass of Terrestrial Directions: North. The situation when we arrived was that there was a horde of blue-furred Wyld barbarians called the Varajtul attacking- the keenest of them reached the city shortly after we arrived, with the bulk of the horde a day or two later. The city's old allies, the Valhal Icewalkers (with whom the Skandir, my character's people, share a common ancestry), were trapped outside the walls, and the Duke was refusing to let them in; Bjarn and his followers, plus a couple of the other players, helped hold off the Varajtul, while the rest of the players got the gates open to rescue the Valhals. Then we ran around stopping people rioting for a while, Bjarn made some impassioned speeches to get the Duke deposed (he was pretty corrupt at this point) and his son installed, our previous Night Caste (he left, we now have a different one) saved the new Duke and his family from assassins sent by his father (this was before he was Duke, actually, but hey), and stuff.
Later events include a preemptive strike to disrupt the Varajtul and build morale, which ended up destroying all the Varajtul boats and with our Zenith really
pissing them off with skilful use of his Anima power to send the dead to Lethe; this, along with other events, really helped to cement the relationship with the twin Valhal Gods, who are now strong allies of our Circle. One of them, Enlightened Emerald Maiden, seems to be rather interested in the Zenith- apparently she likes guys that do slightly ridiculous feats...
EDIT: Hold on, you're from Leeds? As in, the one in Yorkshire? (Not that I'm aware of any others.)
