    Opponent can only clash one.

      Because it seems like a waste to make a reskin of summon golden armor into a new evocation, but on the other hand i feel like im skipping a charm.
      If that's the artifact's central schtick, I'd make it an up-front power.

      • So while we’re on the topic of Single Point Shining into the Void...

        Suppose I have a kung fu blademaster, and they’ve been inspired to create their own style(s) and begin teaching. As a result I’m in the curious position of wanting to write a custom style or two that will play nice with their original style without busting the game wide open- and that style is an overwhelming specialist, which tends to be precarious at best in any system.

        Other than just making their decisive nukes even sillier or too easy to set up, are there any pitfalls you can think of off the cuff that might cause problems or concerns if allowed to combo with Single Point style?

          I just recommend examining the interaction of whatever Charms you create with the existing Single Point stuff, and evaluating whether using them together is going to have silly results.

            Fair enough, thanks for the response!

            Maybe down the line I’ll share what I come up with around the forum and cross my fingers that I did okay.

            • Are there any 5-dot artifact axes or spears in Arms? If so, could we maybe get a name of one of them?

              • Hey Eric,

                I was looking at the cut antagonist writeups that you shared on your blog some time ago, and they're very cool! I particularly loved the writeup for Shigura Mizue, her enchanted brocade sounds awesome.

                Her writeup also felt like a treasure trove of information about Randan! It sounds like thaumaturges lead the weaver's lodge in Randan? Is that still the case in your current view of Randan?

                Will we get a writeup proper for the place in anything upcoming? If not, would you be willing to share any details about it?

                Related questions, I was thinking about how to storytell with thaumaturgy. I really appreciate it as a simple way to have people with unusual talents or singular abilities and for people to potentially fight over those talents, it's another good way for Exalted to support that kind of thing, but I am curious about if you have any advice for how it should be perceived in play.

                Put another way, do you th thaumaturgy is often parsed as a broad potential to perform various fears, I.e that the idea of someone as a Thaumaturge, an individual broadly capable of these things is a thing in setting? Or are they mostly understood in the context of their specific talent?

                As another question, does every person with the potential (a Thaumaturge) possess a ritual intrinsically, or are some people just born with potential that can't be exploited until someone teaches them one?

                  • If an enemy wants to use an AoE attacks on 5 Solar who all has Majestic Radiant Presence activated does the former need to pay 5WP or just 1WP?

                        If they all have Majestic Radiant Presence, the attacker would need to spend Willpower separately for each one.

                          Toss-up between social influence rules, the sorcerous workings system, and the Dragon-Blooded Charmset.

                          • Is it possible for the potential sorcery book to include a section on activating half made workings?
                            I have this image of a group of heroes(wyld hunt) breaking into a mad sorcerer(me) lair, and in his desperation the sorcerer breathes life into the half made gargantuan monster, and then the heroes have to fight against this scary monster with his chest wide open.

                            • Lets say A solar has Respect Commanding Attitude going as he is dancing. He then flurrys defend other on a person while maintaining his dance. Do the people attacking the person limit their dice pool by their dex+performance pool?

                                That's still the plan, although thaumaturges are less numerous; the specifics of the 3e core book material on thaumaturgy hadn't been fully worked out at the time I wrote up Randan.

                                I'm definitely looking to get it published in an upcoming setting book.

                                I think they're mostly understood in the context of their specific talent, except for places that train thaumaturges in other disciplines (such as Randan or Sijan).

                                Not sure. I'd rather not speculate until the team hashes out the specifics for some appropriate book.
