      We're thinking softbacks, although this is subject to change.

      • I love what I'm seeing in Lunars so far. I never got into them in 2E but I'm really excited by what I'm seeing now.

        Unrelated to that, however:
        1) Does a DB with Root-And-Hand Merging and paired weapons get to use it twice for +2 parry?

        Alternately, must they use it twice to ensure that both weapons receive the +2 difficulty to disarming them? Or is it more abstract, and a single use of the charm is intended to cover whatever is in her hands at the time?

        2) If a solar uses Flawless Diagnosis Technique on an Abyssal, what might they be able to deduce about the Abyssal's condition? Suppose the Abyssal in question is healthy aside from whatever their fundamental nature is, and isn't hiding anything about their day-to-day life but isn't talking about the events that led to their becoming a deathknight?

        • Are Lunar Universal charms Favoured or Unfavoured?

          I guess RAW it doesn't say they're Favoured anywhere, presumably making them Unavoured, but I wanted to check.

          • If your character starts at essence 2, do you just count as having the amount of xp needed to be essence 2?

            • Another question, do the venomous merit poisons work outside of combat.

                Favored. I'll make sure it's clarified somewhere.

                  No, you start with 0 XP. The XP requirements to advance are adjusted downward correspondingly.

                      How long does that usually last? Like if you paralyze someone how long is it? Also, what counts as a magical animal versus a mutated one?

                      • I asked a while back about how Ebon Shadow's Seven Points of Weakness Strike interacts with the fact that most QC's don't break down their soak values into armored/unarmored rates. Your response at the time was:

                        I was wondering if the fact that you're adding the carapace/shell mutation to make 'armored' soak values not provided by literal armor means you'd still give the same answer with regard to Seven Points of Weakness Strike and animal QC's like Armored Terrors and Pestletails?

                        • I know you didn’t write it, but do you have an opinion on what Cup Boils Over is actually... good for? The length of time it would take to destroy every intimacy makes it seem pretty useless to me as a means of assassination.

                              When it comes to defining how you want your character to look—which is really the only impact I see this having?—we like to give players a very free hand.

                                Cup Boils Over is what folks who play Magic: the Gathering would call a "Johnny" effect. Its whole purpose is to challenge you to find a way to use it.
