      Gloam was a very interesting idea and I'd love to see it explored further in a future book if at all possible.

      • Alright, so Vance, let's say that an exalt has a charm that protects them from effects that warp the mind or alter the body. You've said that there's also soul-warping and fate-warping effects, what do those detail as distinct from effects that warp the body or mind of a subject?

        • Is Exaltation always a property of the Soul or could an Exaltation that was entirely based in the Body work? I know Alchemicals and their charms are entirely constructed, but even then those bodies require special souls to catalyze them which implies a direct link to the soul.

            It is inimical to Creation or large parts of it? Is a Dream-Souled, say, by their very existence, destablizing Creation, no matter their intent or personal goals?

              For certain values of inimical.

                I'm not sure there's much to be gained from getting into the weeds on this.

                  Fate-warping: All the classic Sidereal shenanigans that mess with your destiny, like Shun the Smiling Lady.

                  Soul-warping: Things that mess with the soul, rather than the mind. A pretty esoteric category; no examples come to mind, though it's theoretically possible.

                    It's a difference in kind, rather than just degree.

                    • What is the question you most wish someone would ask you right now, that you actually have permission to answer?

                      For that matter, what is the question you can't answer right now but still wish the most that people would ask?

                        Is Soul Mastery not an example of the latter?

                          Sorry, i didnt understood that answer.
                          My main question is, if i find a young Lunar with this charm, how many beastman soldiers should i expect?

                            It depends on how long they've had their mystic trial set up, and how many people they're convincing to undertake it.

                              Nah. It just kills you.

                                Ah, I am not familiar with that charm, I'll go look into it. I was hoping for a more generic explanation on what could be done with say a sorcerous working or a custom charm/evocation, since those are an option.

                                Also, regarding poisons, does the "actions" penalty apply to static values or not (or does it have less effect on them due to static values scaling differently than die pools)?
