Most Evocations and such in the book sem to have it so that they keep to the style guid eof having "she" for the actor and "he' for the subject, which while I am for gender-netural where possible, am happy it's consistent throughout the corebook for ease of being able to read effects.

    I just noticed Design Beyond Limit's errata says he for the Charm user. Was this intended or something that probably should have been put in the errat thread?
    The "he" refers to that artifact's owner, which doesn't have to be (but can be) the Charm user.

      On that note, is there a maximum base Essence for God-Blooded? I know that mortals can't go higher than 3, while spirits and Exalts can go all the way up to 10.
      In past editions, God-Blooded apotheosized into spirits upon reaching Essence 4. Not sure whether that will stay.

        It isn't a deliberate homage or pastiche. I'm familiar with Naruto, though, so I can't say whether there might not have been some subconscious inspiration.

          Harmonious Presence Meditation only discounts Charms that enhance or create influence rolls, not Resolve, Guile, or read intentions. If someone's gotta link to my old post, I can edit to fix it.

          • Assuming that the Sidereal Exalted are still Chosen from birth, could that extend to people who are born in unconventional ways?

            ​Say a person who is Wyld-Shaped, or grown in a sorcerer's lab, or possibly conjured into existence by some especially powerful spirit, particularly somebody who began their existence as an adult, but in all other ways is indistinguishable from a normal human. Would whatever numinous foresight the Maidens use to select their Chosen be capable of encompassing such people that they can get the dormant Exaltation in the same way a naturally conceived baby would, or would the narrative underlying the Sidereals be standard enough that it can't really include such people?


            I have approximate knowledge of many things.

            • Some questions about Blinding Battle Feint.
              Does Fivefold Shadow Burial affect the roll of my foes if lowing their initiative If I am sneaking into combat and my allies are busting into the room through the front door at the same time?
              Should the story teller apply penalties to my opponents normal join battle rolls in the same way he would apply penalties to someone trying to see me if I have I have activated Sound and Scent Banishing Attitude banishing Sound and Scent, and has blurred form style active as well?
              Should in these cases should the storyteller have the enemies of the person using Blinding Battle feint roll a separate Perception Awareness roll to spot the solar regardless to what Blinding Battle Feint says just so they enemy is not penalized on their normal join battle rolls vs everyone else or should these charms negatively effect everyone else trying to join battle against the solar?

                If giving ranged weapons smashing attacks is an issue, you might want to look at the Gem of the Wind-Blade as well, which can do the opposite.

                    This is another change from previous editions that I'll need to note down. Definitely hoping you guys get the go-ahead for that core errata to add some of these things in there.

                      Generally speaking, an unconventional birth wouldn't by itself disqualify someone from being a candidate for Sidereal Exaltation.

                        I think calling for a separate roll makes the most sense in that case.

                          Those sound like they're potentially within its themes.

                          • If you do ever get around to revising the core charms, could I add Wyld Shaping technique to the list of charms needed clarification/revision?

                            I was in a thread once where we got three vastly different numbers for how much specific land you could create by activating WST 10 times and focusing solely on the land. The numbers were 12,465, 61,590, and 460,875 sq miles based on various interpretations of the wording of the charm. And I honestly have no idea which is the most accurate to the writers intent.

                            Hell, if you've got time, could you maybe take a look and throw out your interpretation of the specific land creation clause in that charm? I'm sure an example would do wonders to clarify things for me.

                              EDIT: I think my initial reading went astray. What I think is most sensible is:

                              Phases 1-3: Shaping non-specific land, which gets consumed.

                              Phase 4: Shape (Essence x 5) square miles of specific land.

                              Phase 5: Expands to (Essence x 25) square miles

                              Phase 6: Expands to (Essence x 125) square miles

                              Phase 7+: Each phase adds (Essence x 1000) square miles.

                                You spend three phases creating non-specific land, then reset back to phase one, creating (Essence x 5) square miles of specific land.

                                In phase two through six, each use multiplies the land's area by 5, maxing out at (Essence x 15,625) square miles.

                                From phase 7 on, each phase adds (Essence x 1000) square miles.
                                Thanks!

                                To further clarify this, you'd end up with 16,625*Essence sq miles of specific land after 10 activations of WST (phase 7 of specific land).

                                Compared to 10 activations of non-specific land that ends up with 10,290*Essence sq miles of land. A difference of 61% of specific land creation at this level.

                                Is this working as intended?

                                Edit: And does the encounter roll reset when you go back to phase 1 or would your encounter roll be at -3 for the first phase of specific land?
