Aspect of Leaves - Dot 3 - Seeds of Life

The character can invest aura into the form of a seed or fruit.

Cost Technically none, but if successful may consume will, and will almost definitely need aura.
Limit May only be attempted once per day.
Action Main, Extended .
Roll [Intellect + Craft + Release level (up to aspect)].
Effect (optional) May expend a will to invest an aura to create a cintamani in the form of a seed or fruit with one point of aura in it. Can do this multiple times from one attempt / roll to create multiple one point cintamani.
Effect (optional) May expend a success to invest an aura into an existing cintamani, increasing its aura value and thus its effect level. This can be done on the roll in which the cintamani is created or on future rolls.
Note As a cintamani gains aura it would usually grow in size and appearance. By default they start at about the size of a dried pea and would, for example grow to the size and ripeness of a plum by effect level 5. As the character improves a cintamani however they can spend some extra successes to shape its physical features, perhaps making it smaller or larger, harder or softer, more seed or fruit like, etc. Features like shells, burs, dandelion fluff, or seedpod style ‘wings’ can also be developed as long as, overall, the cintamani is still a seed or fruit.
Note Aura invested into a cintamani counts toward the limit of total aura a character can express, but does not count toward the character’s current Release level, and the character can not use it (directly) to fuel other aura effects.
Note The character can (dimly) use spirit sense and spirit sight through a cintamani.
Note The cintamani is a separate physical existence from the character. It will persist on its own even if separated from the character. You have the feeling that it won’t naturally decay or rot, but that it may be eaten, with so-far unknown effect.
Note An awakened of the Tree can Devour a seed of life to release some or all of the aura contained within it into the awakened’s currently expressed aura. Other creatures can also try to consume or otherwise utilize cintamani with varying degrees of difficulty, danger, and / or life changing consequences.
Note If a cintamani is reduced to 0 aura it disintegrates.
