  • Thank you, as usual, for a prompt and clear response!

    I do have a follow-up regarding Anima powers: am I correct in seeing that they lack the Balanced Keyword? I find it surprising that spending 1m to check the locations of your Sworn Kinship could break your Aura.

Certain charms that apply to armor, like Whirlwind Armor-Donning Prana, are mentioned to work with Warstriders, and in a lot of ways Warstriders kind of resemble armor (albeit with lots of extra boons). So, do HSG and EA apply to Warstriders too? Can I jump in a bonfire and climb out in a red jade warstrider?
      This has come up before.

        • Do you have any thoughts on whether a character with the Wyld Mutations/Beastman-traits making them a centaur/centaur-like should be able to apply certain Ride Charm effects to themselves without a separate mount? I see the obvious logic of "no, that's Athletics", but certain travel-speed, stampede, etc effects seem like they should be viable.

          Or would it be better to reskin those specific effects into their Exatled-type Athletics tree, and thus circumvent the various inapplicable Ride Charms?

            When I think of socketing them into weapons, I tend to visualize them as fist or egg sized like FF7 Materia, Then when I look at hearthstone amulets that are actually tiaras and such, that seems rather awkward and I start thinking of them as thumbnail sized gems.

            Is there any rule of thumb on this? (Pun not intended)
            I tend to think of them as in the egg-to-fist-sized range, though this feels like something you can adjust to the desires of your table. Having them change size to fit their socket might also work? Maybe we'll elaborate on hearthstone sizes when we get around to Towers of the Mighty.

              I'd say nah.

                    Now I want a Charm that grows your arrows into full sized trees in flight. I'm just contrary that way.

                    • Where would you put something that interferes with the category of 'thaumaturge/not thaumaturge' in terms of sorcerous workings? IE, anything from 'give this one person thaumaturgy' up to 'make a lineage where every first daughter of a first daughter is a thaumaturge'.

                      • In the Dragon-blooded Craft Charms, does the repurchase for Strike the Dragon-Anvil double both eights and nines for the higher cost? If not, can you activate both versions together?

                          ​I often imagined that it was the slots that would alter size and shape to accommodate the hearthstones.

                          • From White Veil style, does the Soak/ Hardness from Blithe Unruffled Plumage stack with those granted by the Silken Armor Artifact?

                              Double Xs always doubles higher numbers as well, under the base rules of the game (page 183 of the corebook).
