His plan proves to already have taken this obstacle into account, and provides him with a perfect method of overcoming this obstacle. This perfect method is guaranteed to work if successfully executed and to require only resources immediately available; however, it is not necessarily the safest, easiest or most straightforward method. This is a boon-generating charm. Its duration continues until all boons generated with this charm have been spent; deactivating the charm early causes the loss of all boons so generated.

Fifty Efficacious Formations Methodology
Cost: 5m 1wp
Duration: Indefinite
Type: Simple
Min. Lore: 5
Min. Essence: 4
Prerequisite Charms: Observant General's Meditation, Battle Flow Eye

The Solar has mastered the intricate depths of strategy so necessary to war among Exalts. This Charm allows the Solar to arrange an army so as best to accomplish a particular goal. To activate this Charm, the Solar directs the disposition of an army, while naming a goal ("conquer Lookshy") and a metric, either a length of time ("within the week") or a number of acceptable casualties ("without losing a man"). While this Charm is active, the army proceeds inexorably towards accomplishing the goal within the stated metric. Note that some extreme metrics will not be feasible, while others may require inordinate sacrifice on the other axis to achieve; the Storyteller determines whether a specific setting is accomplishable with the available resources and what casualties (if the metric is time) or time (if the metric is casualties) will be necessary. The Solar is aware of this information and may modify his metrics before completing the activation of the Charm. This Charm cannot take into account the actions of beings with half the Solar's Essence (rounded up) or more; direct action by other forces to neutralize these beings, however, can allow the Charm to function.
