-Infusing corporate brand management into the tip of their finger the guru may touch a something and 'Brand' it with a hiss and puff of smoke. Surfaces, Objects, People can all be branded causing their colour schemes, font and imagery to change in line with the gurus desired Brand identity. The effect will wear off after a few days but in the mean time it really catches the eye and sells the product. +Infusing corporate brand management into the tip of their finger, the Guru may touch a something and 'Brand' it with a hiss and puff of smoke.

-Cast upon a group of people, this spell interferes with the language centre of the subjects' brains, rendering them incapable of saying or writing anything other than a short phrase chosen by the guru – whenever they open their mouths, this is all that comes out.+Cast upon a group of people, this spell interferes with the language centre of the subjects' brains, rendering them incapable of saying or writing anything other than a short phrase chosen by the Guru – whenever they open their mouths, this is all that comes out.
This makes ordinary communication impossible and, if cast preemptively, can therefore disrupt most forms of synergy usage. This makes ordinary communication impossible and, if cast preemptively, can therefore disrupt most forms of synergy usage.

===Product Placement=== ===Product Placement===
-Everyone likes shiny new toys, and sometimes it's prudent for the Win-Win guru to deliver. This spell replaces the clothes, equipment, and contents of a large group of subjects' hands with any common object or Company product which the Guru can describe. +Everyone likes shiny new toys, and sometimes it's prudent for the Win-Win Guru to deliver. This spell replaces the clothes, equipment, and contents of a large group of subjects' hands with any common object or Company product which the Guru can describe.
The subjects are completely enamoured with the products, and will use them at every opportunity, to the exclusion of more prudent courses of action. A city provided with a can of Carcino-Cola (tm) will shut down as everyone simultaneously takes a snack break (and face a severe health crisis in six months' time). A mercenary platoon equipped with the latest military equipment will be fearless in their gusto to test out their new toys. The mind altering effect will fade after a few hours but the product will remain.

===Big Lie=== ===Big Lie===
-The syllables of this spell are spoken with such authority and raw charisma that the Guru is able to convince reality that what they are saying is entirely true. The guru may speak a single gigantic lie and it becomes fact, in fact it becomes better than fact, it becomes Truth™. 100% endorsed by reality.  +The syllables of this spell are spoken with such authority and raw charisma that the Guru is able to convince reality that what they are saying is entirely true. The Guru may speak a single gigantic lie and it becomes fact, in fact it becomes better than fact, it becomes Truth™. 100% endorsed by reality. 
-The lie must pertain to the guru themselves and be of the form "I am..." and can be no longer than 10 words. Eventually (the exact time depending on just how ludicrous the lie was) the universe will realise that it has been tricked and will correct the problem...this process is liable to result in headaches for all involved and a great deal of confusion.+The lie must pertain to the Guru themselves and be of the form "I am..." and can be no longer than 10 words.

===Fame! ™=== ===Fame! ™===
-This spell instigates the apotheosis of a named subject, rendering them instantly world-famous, universally renowned (or infamous), and filthy stinking rich. The guru specifies the nature of the subject's fame on casting – pop star, movie star, heartthrob TV physicist, and so on. This doesn't actually provide any kind of talent to the subject directly, but it does create a back-catalogue of (what are unanimously agreed upon as) hits and row upon row of merchandise, and thus a vast personal revenue stream for the foreseeable future, along with a token personal mansion / island.+This spell instigates the apotheosis of a named subject, rendering them instantly world-famous, universally renowned (or infamous), and filthy stinking rich.

More importantly, it burns the subject's name in the back of the mind of every human being who  has ever come into contact with any form of mass media, and causes common folk to place great value in their words (and great interest in their personal lives, diets, and anything they've ever touched).

Fame, and income, will gradually fade if the subject makes absolutely no effort to maintain it; however, regardless of their actual talents, subjects typically find it impossible to do anything which does not add to either their fame or infamy.
