          Not a question but in some of my games I've had a Sidereal send a Wyld Hunt to slay a prophesied Anathema only for the Hunt to start massacring a bunch of defenseless mortals and then the foretold Exaltation happens when one of those mortals fights back.

          Since I'd better have a question for the questions thread: would you compare Luna to the Outsider from Dishonored in this context? I.E. sometimes she chooses people for a specific reason (in the case of the Outsider, because choosing one person in particular turned out to be a very big mistake and someone had to stop her) but mostly just goes for people she finds interesting?

            So, I came into the gameline a bit late here, but is this indicating that there are Abyssals out there that were Exalted by the Neverborn themselves? I know there's Weeping Raiton Cast Aside from Scroll of Exalts, but the book kind of just leaves how and why she became an Abyssal as a sort of open question. The concept of "free" Abyssals that attracted the Neverborn's attention much like Solars or Lunars attract their patrons is actually something I'd always considered a cool contrast to the Liege-bound Abyssals that didn't really have a lot of canonical support, so I'm curious on what details there are about these.

              Haven't played the game, so my ability to draw analogies may be imperfect.

              Luna doesn't just pick "interesting" people. She chooses heroes, or those with the potential to be heroes—much like the Unconquered Sun chooses his Solars, although with a greater preference for outcasts, iconoclasts, and dissidents, and any other idiosyncrasies individual playgroups may impute to Luna.

                In Ink Monkeys, where the idea was first introduced, the idea was that the Exaltation itself did the choosing, independent of the Deathlords and Neverborn. Some of the early Abyssals had destroyed the Monstrances holding their Exaltations (or had them destroyed for them), before subsequently getting killed, leaving their Exaltations unbound, free to choose their own host.

                • If Riding a Tyrant Lizard or Dragon or somesuch, and since you aren't using two initiative tracks, can you make an attack with the big fella by rolling say Ride and Dexterity for having it bite?

                  How long do you imagine before we get thorough Godblooded rules? I'm happier with what we know about it from the beginning of 3rd ed, basically they more or less human but toss in a couple weird things if you really want, compared to 2nd ed where we got not much on them and then when we waited till the end of the gameline they were just copypasted.

                  Same question but how long til God and Elemental rules?

                  • this is a question about the craft charm essence forging kata, the charm allows you to comit motes in order to lower the cost of excelencies, saying "While this Charm is active, every two motes committed reduces the cost of craft excellencies by 1." does this mean that if i comit 4 motes then i can get as many excellencies up to my dice pool cap for free?

                      Yeah but 3E has moved away from the Exaltations as self-automated missiles. So devs, who chooses the free Abyssals?

                        Good question. Obvious answer is that it's the Neverborn is rare moments of lucidity, but I'm not sure we'll want to go with the obvious answer.

                          I'm not entirely sure I understand the question. If you commit four motes, then each use of the Craft Excellency for a single day is discounted by two motes. If you only add two dice with a Craft Excellency, then its cost would be discounted down to 0.

                            You can command your mount to attack, but it uses its own attack pool and counts as your attack action for the round.

                            Don't really have a great estimate on either of these.

                            • Can an opponent who is knocked prone make the reflexive resistance roll against a Disengage action?

                              If all opponents within your range band are prone, would you even need a Disengage action to move away from them, or could you just use the Move action?

                              A Tiger Stylist using the form "takes no penalties for fighting while prone", but I understand the spirit of that to mean attacking and defending rather than positioning actions.

                                A prone character automatically fails the rolls to resist rushes or disengages.

                                You still need to take the action, you're just automatically going to succeed.

                                Tiger Form lets you resist rushing and disengages while prone as though you weren't prone.
