    Clash/gambit question :
    In a clash, if my attack is a gambit against the enemy attack, and I win the opposed roll.
    Does he suffer a lvl of automatic damage?
    Do I instead have +1 to the result of my initiative check?
    or none of the above?

    (clarification for the clash rule p202 of the core book)
    As written, gambits don't receive any special bonus for succeeding in a clash (other than inflicting the -2 Defense penalty). Adding an automatic success to the Initiative roll would be fine, though.

      Yep.

      And will they all be considered heavy armor for the sake or charms and martial arts? Or might we see some flexibility in armor class between medium and heavy?
      I think they can be all three categories.

        For someone possibly wanting to homebrew light (for the sake of martial arts) power armor, what would be some considerations to keep in mind?

        • Something that came up elsewhere: what would the general reaction from other DBs be if a Dynast started flaring their anima in public? If they're having a conversation, for instance, and one of them started showing some anima off. Is that going to be considered a sign of poor self-control, are other DBs going to, for want of a better way to put this, start reaching for their integrity charms because "you're using social magic so I should too", is it a good way to dramatically make a point?

          • Is Dragon-Blooded Survival primarily pet focused?

            • Hey, does dragon-blooded anima flux still work like it did in the 3E core or did you change it?

                I think it's a cultural and contextual thing. No one's going to think of it as "they're using social magic," because Dragon-Blooded Charms aren't Things in the setting. If a Fire Aspect starts flaring in the middle of a heated argument, another Dragon-Blood might recognize that his argumentation overflows with excellence like the barely-restrained flame of his anima, but not "he's trying to mind-whammy me."

                  It's the same, except for the Aspect anima powers that can modify it.

                    No, it's more diverse than Solar Survival.

                        Are there plans to officially diversify Solar Survival? The familiar charms are cool, but they're totally orthogonal to so many survival-centric character concepts.

                          But if say a DB is having some pre-fight talk with an Anathema he has cornered and the Anathema's caste mark suddenly starts flaring 'he's trying to mind-whammy me with evil Anathema magic' is a thing the DB could think, right?

                            So, what happens when a dragonblooded character is mounted now? Most mounts don't have initiative, so do they just ignore it?

                            • If i make a working where i introduce a weakeness to increase the scope of its power. Does it still counts as a higher finnese, or i can just throw that idea to the st and have him come up with the weakeness/power?
