  • As long as Zardoz doesn't mind, can I add on to that:
    What about an Exalt with an army and war charms and a solitary Exalt on, like, a horse? (Not a Kaiju)
    Could the general strategically manoeuvre his army to get the Ambush bonus, or Defences, or whatever?

    And (this came up in conversation with a friend), could you use Strategic Manoeuvre to deny your opponent a decisive engagement? If not, how would you model a general manoeuvring his troops (outside of battle) to deny his opponent a decisive engagement? Just a straight Int+War roll, or something?

    • So this is an edge case that's come up in a game.

      If a character's action creates an environmental hazard, such as by using Flight of the Brilliant Raptor to create a bonfire, and that environmental hazard reduces a Battlegroup's size, does that character get an Initiative Break? Is any Break even awarded in that situation? Thanks!

      • How would you handle Strategic Maneuvering against an enemy that has no reason to expect a battle at all? What if they have no idea yet that there's even anyone around to fight?

          They'd have to wait until their target is crashed.

          Also, any advice on how to run a war between a Exalt with war-charms and armies, and a solitary Exalt with sorcery mounted on a Kaiju? Does the latter have immunity to strategic maneuvering and a host a war-charms by virtue of being an individual?
          I think the intent of the strategic warfare system is that it's only used when both sides are bringing an army.

              The unaware general doesn't get a chance to make an opposing roll.

              • Could an elemental develop powers outside its element? So, for example, could a Wood King of a forest in the farthest North develop some icy powers? Or if I want a tree-man who also can use ice powers, I need to go for a god/fae/demon/something like that?

                  • I know they're a ways out, but is there any inclination of where Liminals and Geitemans fall on the Martial Arts/Sorcery scales?

                    • Got a quick-question on the Artifact Imprimatur from the DB manuscript: Is it intended that the weapon remain sheathed even when using its Evocations? Or is it perhaps meant to leave its sheath during "The Final Words of Queens"?

                        It's unlikely, but I wouldn't call it impossible.

                          Liminals are subject to the Terrestrial keyword. Getimians are comparable to Sidereals.

                            It remains sheathed.

                            • A question regarding Arms of the Chosen, page 73.

                              Are the additional reflexive attacks granted by Whirling Starfall Volley subject to the same one-attack-per-target limitation of Swarm-Culling Technique? That is, presuming I have Dex 5, eight targets, never miss, and raise the artifact's anima on every hit, can I:

                              (a) attack each target once, the extra reflexive attacks having no valid target
                              (b) seven targets once and one target nine times, the extra reflexive attacks having no target limitation
                              or (c) eight targets twice, the extra reflexive attacks also limited to once per target in a separate pool?

                              • Does the -3 penalty from Blindness apply to Defense? I don't see anything specifically stating that this is the case, but it seems odd that Defense does not suffer for fighting blind.
