By her touch, the Sorceress can cause a subject to fall into a deep sleep which restores fatigue and injury at an accelerated rate. She rests her hands on the subject’s head and concentrates for 1 minute. At the end of this time, she makes the Sorcery Test. Success indicates that the subject falls deeply asleep.

The effects of the Arcana depend on how long the subject sleeps:

  • 1 hour: Restores all levels of Fatigue and heals a Lightly Wounded subject for a number of Wounds equal to the Sorceress’ WP Bonus.
  • 2 hours: Heals a Lightly Wounded subject for a number of Wounds equal to the Sorceress’ WP Bonus.
  • 3 hours: Cures the target of any and all natural toxins, poisons, drugs or diseases.
  • 4 hours: Heals a Lightly Wounded or Heavily Wounded target a number of Wounds equal to the Sorceress’ WP Bonus.
  • 5 hours: Heals a Lightly Wounded or Heavily Wounded target a number of Wounds equal to the Sorceress’ WP Bonus.
  • 6 hours: Heals a Lightly Wounded, Heavily Wounded, or Critically Wounded target a number of Wounds equal to the Sorceress’ WP Bonus. Note that while this will restore a Critically Wounded character to health, it cannot restore lost limbs or organs.
  • 7 Hours: Heals a Lightly Wounded, Heavily Wounded, or Critically Wounded target a number of Wounds equal to the Sorceress’ WP Bonus. Note that while this will restore a Critically Wounded character to health, it cannot restore lost limbs or organs. If the target has less 10 or fewer Insanity Points, it reduces the target’s Insanity Points total by one-half of the Sorceress’ WP Bonus.
  • 8 Hours: Heals a Lightly Wounded, Heavily Wounded, or Critically Wounded target a number of Wounds equal to the Sorceress’ WP Bonus. If the target has less 10 or fewer Insanity Points, reduce the target’s Insanity Points total by one-half of the Sorceress’ WP Bonus. If the target has 10 or fewer Corruption Points, reduce the target’s Corruption Point total by one-half of the Sorceress’ WP Bonus.

Subjects of this Arcana are subject to intensely erotic dreams during its effects. To awaken from the Arcana before its effects have run their course requires the assistance of another character (who must be awake) who must attempt to wake the sleeping subject, who must pass a Hard (-20) Toughness Test, or remain asleep.

A single target may be subject to this Arcana only once per day.
