  • Also isn't having a fixed number of souls why the dragon kings got almost wiped out during the war?

    Comment


    • Is Jade Prison even still a thing, since the game seems to emphasize the Sun turning his face away from Creation?

      Comment


      • Yes, it is:
        Most of the Solars were murdered and their Essences
        sealed away in a jade prison—for such was their power
        that they could reincarnate upon death.

          Dragon Kings aren't human for one.

            Dragon King souls are different.

              It's still a thing, although perhaps not one that would have worked if it weren't for the Sun turning his face.

              • Didn’t find a question about this, on the the other hand the search function of the forums is not your friend usually, so I’ll throw it up in the air.

                First of all I am not entirely sure will you still go with the prewieved Abyssals, that is them gainingCharms tied to their Liege Deathlord Etc.

                But the actual question is will Dimming of the Light Void Circle spell still exists? Or is it no longer within Necromancys, and Abyssals, conceptual space?

                And for another question, this time from second edition Abyssals, will they still have Charms that untangle them from their Deathlords and pledge them straigh to the sleeping Neverborn ala Immortal Malevolence Enslavement?

                  We'll be going with the previewed concept, but it's not that Abyssals gain Charms based on the Deathlord they serve. Rather, as Abyssal Charms branch out and develop, they emulate the themes and powers of the Deathlords, much as those of the Solars emulate the Unconquered Sun. An Abyssal who serves the Mask of Winters (or no Deathlord at all!) is free to take Charms that invoke the themes of the Silver Prince or the First and Forsaken Lion.

                  Not sure.

                  You won't need a Charm to do that.

                  • Based on your own personal interpretation of the solar charm set would you put the training of people into a certain stat block like the War and Sail charms that do so as specific to War and Sail with Lore covering the rest or would versions of those charms also be possible to exist within the purview of other ability charm blocks like Performance allowing you to train actors and musicians or Larceny being able to train a gang of thieves?

                      For those specific examples, I think it'd make sense, but I don't think that logic would carry over to every Ability.

                        Got yeah. I guess it would cover Skills that could possibly cover management of their own skills are in that wheelhouse. Things Like Bureaucracy, Medicine, Performance, War, and Sail are to an extent covered in that while more personal character skills like most of the Dawn abilities would not. be

                          • Do charms/evocations whose only effect is to reduce initiative do anything to battle groups? (I.e. The evocation for Fist of Titans, Mammoth Slam Quake)

                                It's a compelling narrative.
