Animal Lore (Wild Animals) or Magical Lore (Magical Creatures)

  • QL 1: Ikanaria butterflies can mesmerize onlookers with their beauty.
  • QL 2: If you look at the butterfly, you pursue it, heedless of your surroundings. Ikanaria view spellcasters as rivals and fly toward them as soon as they notice them.
  • QL 3+: The high elves of Simyala bred ikanaria butterflies. When their great city fell, the creatures escaped and spread all over Aventuria.

Special Rules

Enchanting Beauty: Anyone looking at an ikanaria butterfly must succeed in a competitive check of the butterfly‘s Seduction against Willpower (Resist Seduction), or suffer 1 level of Confusion for each net QL the butterfly achieves. Also, victims follow the butterfly without paying attention to their surroundings. The effect ends after 1 hour. Reduce Confusion by 1 level per hour if the butterfly is no longer present. Slapping or shaking victims (or providing similar aid) can also end the enchantment. This cure does not work once you suffer 4 levels of Confusion, and anyone with 4 levels gains them permanently. It costs the butterfly 1 AE per person per hour to use this power.
