  • So wait, if I'm understanding the crippling thing right, if you have two health levels left and someone does 5 damage, you can take a crippling for 3, push it down to 2 and then hang on your last health level, but if they only did 2 there's nothing you can do about it?

    Doesn't this make characters weirdly vulnerable to cherry tapping?

      The text of Corrupted Words explicitly states HGD can be used to defend.

        Yep.

        I guess.

          Huh.

          In that case, it's whatever mode you'd use to defend against uncountable damage.

            Speaking of perfect defenses. Will the other celestials get comparable defenses? Probably not at comparable costs, I imagine once per scene effects would make sense.

            • Robert, Eric, could you pass on an apology from me?

              If you know the person who wrote Moonlit Huntress, and you know if they've seen the things I've said about it, could you tell them that I am ashamed of the abusive way I have spoken about it?

              I'm still mad, but that's never an excuse to be an asshole.

                • So the "Lost Isles of Aiun": lost when and by whom? Why are they "eerie"?

                  • For Six-Demon Scabbard BInding is the "hostile magic" specifically just shaping/fate-altering attacks or the like, or is it any magic attack that that alters your body or mind that isn't resolved as a regular attack or regular social influence? The similar text in Phoenix Renewal Tactics demands the effect has 'no clear defense' but Six-Demon Scabbard Binding does not.

                    Could you clash Corrupted Words with it? Hypnotic Tongue Technique?

                      For a given value of comparable, yeah.

                        They gain enhancements while you're in certain animal or human shapes.

                          It's gotta be a shaping effect.

                          No.

                              So like what? It's not a keyword used anywhere in the core. What charms/spells or antagonist abilities count as shaping effects?

                                Centuries ago, the abhuman sorceress Aiun employed the legendary Eye of Autochthon to raise a continent from the Northwestern ocean as a homeland for her people. As is traditional in stories involving the Eye of Autochthon, things did not turn out well in the end.
