  • Does the -3 penalty to making a social action against multiple targets apply specifically to multiple characters and multiple unique NPCs or do you also apply it to a social action targeting a generic group like a mob or battlegroup of bandits?

      Using the thread search gives this question being asked here. Scrolling down from there yields this answer.

      So yes, it has to be in Melee.

        Can I double-like this?

          This is basically the same problem as the combination of Soul-Bracing Momentous Power and Memory-Reweaving Discipline. Using other charm like "Respect-Commanding Attitude" and "Impassioned Orator Technique" further extend the power of the combo, apart from the "fate-shifting solar earring".

          The complete combination guarantees more than 15 successes, which is the maximum I can apply for mental defense. Adding the fact that the combination extends the effect by essence days.

          Or I am forced to put effect to immunize the NPC and let the scene roll, which will frustrate the player or he will simple finalize everything in a speech.

          Should this combination really be allowed? Soul-Bracing Can Momentous Power really magnify the power of Memory-Reweaving Discipline by keeping the target for the essence days without being able to break the effet of memory-reweaving?

            The former. If you try to persuade a mob to stop with a role against a "group" Resolve, no penalty. If you're trying to persuade both the mob and the Solar who riled them up, you'd take the penalty.

            • Hey Vance end I've got two quick ones. Firstly is the only way to activate crane style reflexively to have an enemy at the same initiative as you fail a decisive against you? It seems very difficult compared to some of the others but also Crane style doesn't suffer as much from using its first action to activate the form.

              Also when a crane form counterattack happens does it resolve before your enemy's damage or after?

                So does the Backer Charm Stalking Shadow Spirit Grant charm or Non Charm Dice to stealth rolls?

                • Not sure whether to ask Robert Vance or Eric Minton this question, but why don't Sidereals have a Totemic/Iconic Anima Banner? I know that this is a holdover from previous editions and was in place long before either of you worked for the line, but why keep it?

                    On the other hand, Ex3 thaumaturgy is much more conducive to a setting where fakers and charlatans ply their trade.
                    Is mortal Astrology just a thing you can do as an Occult roll and potentially get useful results from or is it a form of Thaumaturgy that you need the special birth to be able to learn?

                      So does that mean you can use Disengage while in Crash? Whether that is the case is somewhat ambiguous in the core, and it's been discussed around here a few times without a definitive answer.

                      Edit: just to be clear, I understand that your answer wasn't directly referencing Disengage happening in crash, but that was the initialy provided example and it wasn't corrected.

                      • Can we ask what the form weapons will be for Mantis Style?

                        • With the Charms Glorious Solar Saber, Glorious Solar Plate and Immaculate Golden Bow note that for additional purchases you can add custom evocations to them. Since it says additional purchases it seems you have to spend non-Solar XP on these Evocations, but do you think anything would break if I allowed people to use solar xp to purchase evocations for them at the normal 10xp?

                            Would it be alright for me to also ask what form weapons Golden Janissary style has/will have? =)

                              Yes, you can disengage in crash. It causes you to lose Initiative, but doesn't have an Initiative cost.

                                Using Solar XP to buy Evocations for Glorious Solar Saber et al is fine.
