    The charm states that you "don each piece of armor as if [you] were putting it on normally" so presumably it still takes ([armor’s mobility penalty] +1) minutes to put on, as per the rules. can this be combined with Whirlwind Armor-Donning Prana to use the charm to summon your armour over the course of 1-3 turns?

    And while I have you here, can I get an answer to the questions I asked earlier here: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...94#post1075294

      Yes.

      Hey Robert Vance, the grappling tag allows you to make grappling gambits with a Melee weapon, presumably allowing you to use your Melee skill instead of Brawl or Martial Arts. Does that extend to using Melee in the control roll? What about savaging? I'd understand not being able to savage people using only a whip, but the core book doesn't go into detail, only stating that you make a unarmed roll. If you are allowed savage people, can you enhance that with Melee charms?
      I think it makes the most sense if a Melee weapon with the grappling tag allows you to roll Strength + Melee for control, and to make savaging attacks with Melee.

        Hang on, can this be combined with Armored Scout's Invigoration to instantly summon heavy armour? Also thanks for taking the time to answer all these questions. It's really helping me get back into Exalted after having so much radio silence.

          And, if not, how do you feel about a suit of Artifact Superheavy Plate that had an evocation that allowed you to summon and don it instantly? Would it make a difference if the evocation had Hauberk-Summoning Gesture as a prereq? Or is instantly putting on Heavy Armor a thing that shouldn't be allowed?

          • Are there any rules or guidelines for assisted actions? Say two characters want to work together to move a particularly large rock out of the way or, as a couple of my players asked, what if their characters wanted to work together crafting a boat?

              No specific rules. It's a good reason to give situational bonus dice.

              • Robert Vance Eric Minton I kinda wanted to ask a question about you guys as Devs, I know Vance is in law school right? and Minton you write for other publishers no? So how does EX3 fit into your lives now? Is it the main focus for you guys right now, or like a side job in addition to your "day jobs". I don't want it to seem like I am judging either way, I know you are dedicating a lot to EX3 no matter what, I'm just kinda interested in what a Dev's work life looks like.

                  • When are we seeing the relics of the Nibboran leauge(sp)? Or anything of them? They are by far the most fascinating thing I have heard so far and I'm eating up all I can.

                    ...also, songs for Exalted types (Solar, Lunar, unrealeased...)?

                    • I'm going to repeat a question I had early in the thread because I'm genuinely curious and your thoughts about this could help me in my Exigent homebrew.

                      Since the Exigent book isn't that far off, it's possible that you've been thinking about this. But what is the imagined scope for the playable Exigents in the book? Do you think it'll be 50-100 charms for a single Exigent so that players can invest time and xp in playing that character for a while---fewer Exigents, more Charms. Or is it leaning more towards more Exigents with fewer Charms just to get more concepts into the book? Or maybe a third way: a list of varying charm ideas not tied to specific Exigents, and then suggest Exigents with examples on how you could give variations of those Charm ideas to different Exigent concepts? All of the above?

                          Proofreaders have a night shift? That sounds bizarre.

                            And possibly an artifact crossbow from that era, if it survives an encounter with Vance's red pen!

                              • I've got a question about Feats of Strength used for combat purposes.

                                Say I've got an Essence 1 Athletics Supernal Solar with Nine Aeons Thew and its prerequisites. A Dragonblooded swordswoman that has witnessed that he is a dangerous heretic, but has not realized he is anathema, steps forward to challenge and kill him in single combat. The venue is a residential city street.

                                The Solar accepts, activating all their supplemental and reflexive strength charms, plus a full excellency, and lands a respectable but not overly optimistic 35 successes. I've no idea how big a thing that might allow someone to pick up, but the Solar conservatively picks up a nearby house.

                                The Dragonblooded spends her turn activating a scene-long defensive buff or shooting a wind-carried message to her distant friends to go fetch the Wyld Hunt, or something else that doesn't disrupt my example.

                                The Solar then attempts to place the house into the nearby space the Dragonblooded is currently occupying.

                                How do I handle this, mechanically?
