    It means that if you use a ritual to get motes during a round, you don't suffer the penalties for not shaping the spell that round.

    What does the VGoF act as when wielded as a weapon? Medium Artifact?
    Different sorcerers might customize it in different ways with the Evocations they awaken from it.

      Generally no, as they aren't described in enough detail or with enough consistency to provide a very useful basis.

      - How does matriarch status work in the patrilineal Gen structure of Lookshy? Obviously, assuming previous canon stands, matriarchs are common (Teresu, Maheka, and Yushoto were all led by women; only Amiliar explicitly has a male patriarch), but unless they wed adopted outcastes into their Gen, their children would all be in their husbands' Gentes, which, ala men in the Realm, and women in the historic-to-modern West, would tie them more strongly in that direction.
      Female imperators probably manage better than Cainan and Banoba in the Realm.

      • Awesome, thanks!

        Can you comment then on whether Dazan is also the Maheka Imperator, and if not, how that power relationship works?

        • Given what has been said about Lunar Charms thus far, is there any thought to them being a bit cheaper to buy than some other Exalted get?

          • I am curious as to the fate of one Peleps Deled. Apart from one image in the core book, he has seemingly vanished. There's no mention of him in the Dragonblooded series, as far as I can tell. Now I know there's a new series of signature DBs, and I like a lot of them, but is the former Water Token being actively written out of existence, or are we just moving passively towards less doctrinally-motivated razor claws?

              I am not a dev, but he was one of the NPCs scheduled to be a QC in Heirs to the Shogunate. Check the kickstarter campaign under QC expansion #1.

                That's correct; Peleps Deled is getting a full Quick Character write-up in Heirs to the Shogunate. (He also gets a namedrop in The Realm as the head of the Pinnacle of the Eye of the Hunt.)

                  Dazan is not the Maheka imperator. Their write-up in Heirs to the Shogunate will touch on it.

                    They get them at the same rate as Solars.

                        ​I was wondering if it was going to be something like Alchemicals, where it's a matter of building a wide variety of options, but they can't all be accessed at the same time.

                        ​I guess it doesn't really track because not being able to use a bunch in combos isn't equivalent to literally not having the use of them all at once?

                        • Why do spells cost more to learn as a dragonblooded than a mortal?

                            Mortals don't have Occult Excellencies and other sorcery-enhancing Charms, nor can they use the extra effects of spells that cost motes.

                              Nah, I was refering to Gens Maheka's write-up.

                              • Robert, if you wanted to update the Modern Firearms and Drive Charms to Third Edition, would you want to bring back the Firearms and Drive Abilities?

                                Dragon-Blooded Ability Charms aren't strictly one element, anymore, and Archery has Fire-aspected Charms.
