    You found a solution you like for that?
    Yep! 10char

      Surprise Anticipation Method (SAM) has the following to say:

      "[...]This charge of Essence can only be used to offset the cost of activating Awareness Charms to reveal a threat. Motes returned in this fashion may retroactively lower the cost committed to Awareness Charms of a scene or longer duration, both lowering the committed cost and returning the discounted mote(s) to the Solar’s mote pool. [...] "

      Is this commit reduction permanent or do you need to commit those motes again once the charm expires? The latter would surprise me as this is a reflexive charm...
      It lasts for the duration of the discounted Charm.

          Sure, that's fine. Thanks.

            It does not!

              Does there exist in the Pure Way or any Immaculate group a sort of Cult of Saints? Or similair "not Dragons but revered post-mortem" holy figures?


              I did a lot of homebrew over here. PEACH.

                It's a Story Merit, so by roleplaying forming a special bond with an animal to the Storyteller's satisfaction.

                  And that on its own somehow grants the ability to ride its senses? If so, neat.

                  • Do you see a place in the game for a Legolas Martial Art Style where archers use their MA Ability to parry with their bows and stab people with arrows, among other tricks?

                    And if you you wrote it, would it figure into a splatbook in the future, or something else?

                      Pious historical figures may be revered, but they aren't venerated or worshiped outside of heretical groups.

                      • This is sort of a weird question, but one of those basic setting facts I keep being unsure of: Do the laity of the Immaculate Philosophy literally worship the Immaculate Dragons, or do they just see them as exemplar figures that you are supposed to aspire to be like without offering devotion? Is actually worshiping them heretical?

                          Worshipping them directly is heretical (although that doesn't mean it's not done). Worship of the Immaculate Dragons, like any deity, is appropriate for layfolk only under the guidance of a monk.

                            I wouldn't rule out that concept out of hand.

                              So this is probably not the best assocation, but would the Immacualte Dragons be kind of more Sidhartha Gautama or Kongzi were originally, more than literal gods, to take Earth-based examples? In that they're incarnations of powerful beings, but were more guides of their message than in of themselves mean to be objects of worship?


                              And stuff.
