  • Flame-Borne Interception says "Each time she blocks an attack, she gains +1 Parry until her next turn."

    Does this apply after successfully parrying?

      Sure, if the timing is right. This might be problematic if the grandmother / adoptive mother has had or is planning to have a child of her own within a few years of this one, and the family wishes to pretend that the adoptive mother is the biological mother.

      Subterfuge is certainly possible. The family would prefer to conceal the fact that the actual mother had a child out of wedlock while in secondary school; that lack of judgment would reflect poorly on her, and might interfere with her future prospects. (If the father and his family become aware of these circumstances, they would likewise wish to conceal his involvement for much the same reasons.)

        All right, good to know.

        • Fluffy-wise, how quickly are Solars supposed to advance. For example, take the Bull of the North's Circle. Assuming they stay active and engaged in combat/intrigue, how long would it take them to get to Essence 3? Essence 5? Would it normally take years, decades, centuries?

          In 2E, long-term exp awards was 10 exp/year until age 99, 5 exp/year from 100-249, etc. Is there any plan on having something like that in 3E?

                There's a sidebar on page 179 addressing that.

                No. Building elder NPCs with XP is, in my experience, just plain miserable.

                • If people wanted to be considered for a future playtest, is there anything we can do to apply or is this a "Don't call us, we'll call you" thing?

                    Hey Vance. I’m just wondering, if that’s the case, when this charm is supposed to be used.

                    You pay three motes up front to gain no benefit against the first time you’re attacked, and then +1 parry against the second time you’re attacked, if you parry the first one. But you could just get that by using two motes and the excellency anyway which is cheaper, builds your excellency reduction, and is not conditional. So is it just for the case where you get attacked three times and parry both the first and second attacks?


                    EDIT: As an aside your stamina to keep responding to this thread is really impressive. Minton as well. Thanks!

                      Which might be under your own control maybe half the time.

                        There's not really any sort of application process at this time.

                          Its main use case is intended to be when you're outnumbered and getting attacked by tons of enemies, or going up against folks with multiattack Charms. I'm planning to look at bumping its overall power up a bit for the final draft.

                          • Is the mobility penalty the only factor negatively effecting swimming in (non-bouyant) medium and heavy armour?

                            If so, does someone in articulated plate which has had (via charms, evocations, sorcerous workings etc.) it's MP reduced to 0 float just as well as an unencumbered character?

                              • This came up elsewhere, but how unified with the Sidereals with participating in the Usurpation? Was there any members who had to be silenced before plans went off or was there a general unified front in things being carried out?
