Charm (Lesser Occult Trinket)

A lesser power form of a Talisman. The charm is the least powerful type of Trinket. Learning the magical arts is not necessarily easy. Many masters begin their students with minor tricks of prestidigitation. A practitioner of magic can both learn rote formulae and improvise ones from a greater body of knowledge to create charms.

Rote Charms: A magus can potentially perform minor variations to rote charms. These variations are in form only and do not affect the actual effect of the charms. The magus’s Magic Aptitude dictates the ability to tweak a rote charm. Only a magus, a character skilled in a Tradition/Methodology/School, can tweak rote charms.
