The user can convince other people into action or inaction, giving up their own counter-arguments no matter how factual or preposterous the argument they give. Whether the reason given actually manifests as true or not depends on the user.

For example, when a person wishes to go on a quest and their friends wish to join them, the user could simply say "(they) must do this alone", everybody immediately giving up their counterargument as a result.




  • May require some level of effort to work.
  • Reasoning may end up backfiring on the user, convincing the opposing person to do something they do not want instead.
  • Users of Control Immunity and Fact Manipulation are immune.
