    Does the same apply if we are speaking about evocations effects from 5 dot orichalcum artifact that are locked behind a solar charm or resonance with an orichalcum artifact? Would they be as powerful but with different thematic elements/effects drawn from the artifacts uniqueness? Or are we still looking at pretty darn close to parity? This is taking into account that evocations generally cost more than native charms and often have higher restrictions on their usage at the higher tiers.
    Evocations locked behind Solar Charms get to be a lot more powerful than Evocations that Dragon-Blooded can use.

      Tied for first, maybe, alongside the most powerful Charms that use their Aura.

      • Hello again.

        To what extent does 3E have "niche protection?" That is, PC 1 has one specific job, PC 2 has one specific job, and they aren't very good at doing other things?

        This is important for helping me determine what size of group would provide the best (relatively speaking) play experience.

          The design of Ex3 makes it less important—you could have two Solars that are both socially focused, even have them be the same Caste, and they could end up being very different in ways that complement each other based on their Charm selection. You can have every PC occupy a different mechanical niche, but that's more of a social contract thing than a system thing.

            Is the text of The Realm going to in some way be available during (or through) the DB Kickstarter, so that they can be used together, or is that book only going to be released after art direction and layout?

                  Is her weapon... white jade?

                    They don't compare diectly because evocations are based on the "artifacts game" mechanics? Like opening gorgons eyes flying with ascedant nova etc?

                    Also considering "infinite" evocations, in artifacts 5-n/a, is it possible to expand the artifacts theme, organically at least? I am trying to think of an example but I am having a hard time. Maybe ascedant nove could also expand to fire charms or storm caller make the demon able to appreciate peace and so also have calming or protecting evocations?

                        That's Kingfisher Swift, the signature Earth Aspect. She's a lost egg who took the coin and entered the Imperial legions.
