    The strongest analogy to me is that Auctoritas is an Aldebaran oil hack. Whereas the Aldebaran oil has will + drive thrown in, Auctoritas gives you that impression of sovereignty without the "doing part". If anyone needs to throw presence around like a brick through a window, Auctoritas helps you with that. If you already have Presence +5, ask yourself if/when you need an additional +10 to your presence rolls though. I would pair Auctoritas with another DA item to ensure that all that presence also doesn't garner unwanted negative attention. Also out of the DA2 items, which all seem to provide protection via stealth, this is the one DA2 item that is not about stealth but instead about commanding the spotlight. (You might struggle to keep your light underneath an invisibility cloak, is all I'm saying! Also be careful with blinding others if you do a reveal).

    Snootier Bat

    Now with more snoot. All the sugared incense you can shake a wing at with double the leather and a dollop of thick, inky black musk.

    Sleepy Bat

    An ode to the BPAL bat: lavender-dusted auburn fur, a drop of hops, Roman chamomile, hay absolute, ambrette seed, and sun-warmed leather.
