The major axe that looms constantly over the heads of the Abyssal Exalted, Resonance represents the ire of the Neverborn earned by the Abyssal in question. Continuing an existence frozen on the brink of death, the Abyssals must feed on blood or raw flesh to recover their strength in the land of the living. The effects are generally unpleasant enough already, however. They’re not so much the Chosen of Death as the Chosen of Murder.
Three your job is the end of everything so success means the end of the game and Creation. Most servants of the Neverborn strive for the eradication of all life, whether out of a twisted sense of mercy “Oblivion will ease the pain of living” or hatred “Damn them all” or simple nihilism “I never had this much fun when I was still amongst the living”. Others become ambassadors from the world of the dead to the lands of the living.
The Yozi, Primordials bound and sealed by the Solars, and the Neverborn, the undead Primordials slain by same Solars, struck a bargain to destroy the vessel containing the Solar exaltations in the hopes of gathering all of those potent weapons for themselves. Abyssals on the other hand have only a very slim hope of doing what they personally want to do. The slain Primordials do not always object when their servants fight. Spending willpower to resist unnatural mental influence causes an Abyssal to accrue Resonance in exactly the same way as Solars or Lunars gain Limit.

However two things are always consistent. The simplest way for an Abyssal to reduce Resonance is, well, simply to suffer the punishment of the Neverborn.

The Neverborn took a hundred for themselves and paid a further fifty to the Yozis for their help. Retrieved from ” http: If the Mental Attack succeeds the enemy will either flee or surrender.
Unlike other Exalts, who cannot mitigate their Limit, Abyssals can rid themselves of Resonance by reaffirming their loyalty to the Neverborn. In the end all Abyssals do their own part in the plan of oblivion, bringing all creation closer to destruction. Committing motes to block the discomfort is a reflexive action. Each Abyssal Exaltation is a dark reflection of its former existence as a Solar. A deathknight can do so whenever she chooses with a reflexive Essence roll. Mutations Physical Base any three – Mental Base any five.
The only exceptions to this rule are that an Abyssal does not gain Resonance when channelling a Virtue solely to regain Willpower typically a Conviction roll following sleep or chanelling that Virtue in defence or support of their Lunar mate. The Abyssal’s presence taints Creation where they walk, snuffing out fires, wilting plants, symbols of the gods becoming tarnished. The Neverborn possess the Abyssal in increasingly-direct ways, removing or poisoning positive Intimacies held by the deathknight, or even take over the body of the deathknight directly in the case of severe transgressions.

The whispering spark of light serves as a conscience in even the most black hearted of Abyssals, reiterating continuously that these Chosen of Death have also chosen Death for themselves and all of creation.
