Once this charm is enacted the Death Knight and the Target enter into an opposed roll of willpower + essence. Each net success weakens the friendship by a small amount. Net successes fade at the rate of 1 per week, unless so long as the friendship persists, however the Death Knight can use this charm again to add more. If the Death Knight botches, the target realizes that magic is being used on them. The Death Knight must accumulate a number of successes equal to the years of the original friendship (meaning one year or less only requires a single net success.) In order to totally end it. Once this has happened, the characters involved must slowly undergo the process of becoming friends again, as if their original friendship had never happened. They remember everything that passed before, it simply no longer matters.
