Glamour magic is unique to Avalonians, a gift of the Sidhe powered by the magical cup known as the Graal. Through this power, a Glamour mage can invoke the strengths of legendary figures from Avalon's history. Each Legend imparts an Activated Effect, and an Heroic Action.

The Activated Effect of each Legend can be activated at will, and are usually considered to remain active at all times unless otherwise specified. A few have limits on how often they can be used per session, but otherwise they tend to act as constant enhancements.

An Heroic Action is a much more focused summoning of the Legend's power, usually guaranteeing success in an endeavour beyond the user's usual limits.

Apprentice: Choose 2 Legends. Gain access to any Activated Effects, the ability to use a Heroic Action from a chosen Legend 1 time per session, and set all X values to 1.
Journeyman: Choose 3 Legends. Gain access to any Activated Effects, the ability to use Heroic Actions from chosen Legends up to 2 times per session, and set all X values to 2.
