Which means that Jerbiton (and some Criamon, and a very few others) get to be the face of the New Order.
Or, magi can get some of their Hedgie minions to help them out. A Gruagachan can grant virtues (Gentle Gift? I don't recall.) An advanced Learned Magician can give everyone in the audience immunity to the effects of the Gift; a charm or amulet can affect an audience chamber for a season or more!
