    Spider styles?

      Only as something roughly the same, or anything?
      Like, if I have two jade daiklaives, could I disguise them as jade goremauls? Regular short swords? Large wooden sticks?
      I assume I couldn't disguise them as nothing at all, as that's hiding rather than disguising.

        I'd say "what the Storyteller allows with a stunt."

          In the sense of "a hypothetical Spider style that we'll eventually write," not "one of multiple Spider styles that exist."

            Okay, that seems reasonable.

            • Are the less indebted and more financially independent houses, V'Neef and Nellens if memory serves, also able to lend funds, or was that practice limited to Ragara by the Empress?

                • How did Tepet Arada Command Tepet Legions? Is he a widower who returned to his mother’s House? Or was he wed to a distant Tepet? Or Patrician?

                  • Would a non-elemental Martial Art purely about hitting people with hammers have a Knockback Charm as powerful as Solar Brawl’s Heaven Thunder Hammer?

                    How does the first Evocation of the Heaven and Earth Gauntlets interact with Heaven Thunder Hammer?

                    How do you feel Fist of the Titan’s first Evocation compares with Solar Athletic’s Increasing-Strength Exercise, which allows a full power-up in one turn, adds to Decisive attack damage, and doesn’t forbid using the Move action. I know ISC’s bonus can’t be used to fuel powerful attack Charms, but I’m unsure it’s feasibly possible to build up a lot of Charge.

                      Martial Arts Charms are generally less powerful than Solar Charms.

                      How does the first Evocation of the Heaven and Earth Gauntlets interact with Heaven Thunder Hammer?
                      Same way regular smash attacks do, i.e. the knockback stacks, but doesn't count towards increasing HTH damage.

                      It's definitely less powerful, although it's different in some aspects, like the aim bonus.

                        There's about twenty of them - you want I should list them?

                        In the meantime… if I use Injury-Forcing Technique to bestow more of my damage than the opponent has in remaining health, what happens to the difference? Like, let's say I've taken three HLs of damage (thank goodness for Ox-Body Technique!), and roll as many successes to transfer damage, but Most Convenient Target only has two health remaining. Can I extra-incapacitate him to heal my last health level, or am I stuck with it?

                          I thought they were supposed to be stronger, with Mastery effects, in account of how much narrower they tended to be.

                          I was not aware of such a stacking principle.

                          Oh, so it does behave like a normal Aim action. I guess that should have been clear.

                            Not the case. With Mastery, they're typically equal-ish.

                              I'm gonna say yes, but that's more an inclination than an authoritative ruling.

                                So, WITH Mastery effects, a Hammer Style might have a Charm equal to Heaven Thunder Hammer?

                                I already assumed that the Essence 3+ upgrades would be Mastery-locked, and certainly not available to Terrestrial-tier users.
