  • Sorcery questions for Robert Vance:
    • What happens if I use Unslakable Thirst of the Devil Maw on an Impervious Sphere of Water? Does UTotDM fail or does the ISoW collapse?
    • What happens if I use Death Ray on an Impervious Sphere of Water? The sorcerer is behind full cover, and thus ranged attacks are impossible, but Death Ray obliterates cover.
    • What happens if I use Beckoning That Which Stirs The Sky when someone else has cast Rain of Doom? Can is dispel the Rain of Doom?

      Storyteller call; at the very least, the Impervious Sphere isn't going to offer any cover. It'll take a chunk out of the Sphere, but not enough to collapse it entirely. The Storyteller can adjudicate any effects this has.

      [*]What happens if I use Death Ray on an Impervious Sphere of Water? The sorcerer is behind full cover, and thus ranged attacks are impossible, but Death Ray obliterates cover.
      I think it's gonna boil that Impervious Sphere into perviousness. Being inside a sphere of boiling water probably sucks a whole bunch, at the Storyteller's discretion.

      [*]What happens if I use Beckoning That Which Stirs The Sky when someone else has cast Rain of Doom? Can is dispel the Rain of Doom?
      Nope.

          Elementals

          Raksha
          Demons, gods, and elementals should all get coverage in the smaller books between Exigents and Sidereals, assuming our planned pitches get approved.

            Does this mean that the Lunars will be more reliant on Martial Arts and Evocations to compensate for the lack of internal synergy?

              No. Lunars who use Martial Arts or Evocations are losing access to, or at least putting obstacles in the way of other sources of power in their Charms (animal shapeshifting and Deadly Beastman Transformation, respectively).

              • Are there any splats that will have an above-average number of synergy between their Charms, the same way Lunars have a below-average number due to all those Simple Charms? Because finding cool combinations between many different Charms is something I enjoy quite a bit.


                Some of me humble homebrew for ex3:
                Artifacts for Crumple's DB homebrew
                Some Lintha QCs
                A Wyld Behemoth

                  I don't think Lunars have a below-average number.

                  • Why is it harder for a dragonblooded to learn sorcery than a mortal?

                      Would it be possible for a Lunar to build a Moonsilver Artifact Weapon, say Razor Claws, that shifted to work with/enhance any claw attacks they might have in animal form/DBT? If so, what considerations would need to be kept in mind while building said artifact's evocation tree?

                        How large do you expect the Lunar Charmset to be compared to Dragon-Blooded? Do you have an approximate target number per Attribute planned, or anything like that?

                          Roughly the same size.

                            Sorry for misunderstanding you, then. Still, are there any splats that will be more well-suited to throwing (all) the good stuff on an attack? Sids because they can combine multiple styles together with unarmed attacks, maybe?

                              Deadly Beastman Transformation, you can already use artifact weapons with, you just gotta suck up diminished resonance.

                              Animal forms...well, they've got a fun Charm for that.

                                No, being able to throw all your Charms on one attack is something we try to avoid, because it minimizes decision-making.
