    Are you sure about that? The book says that "If she garners more successes than the ship she’s picked to oppose, her stratagem succeeds," which sounds to me like your stratagem works as long as you beat the ship you're attempting it on.

      This worries me. A player could decide not to use an Intimacy to boost her Resolve, and keep it only for Decision Points. It can even be a Minor Intimacy, because it needs to be better than the Resolve-boosting one.
      When she does that, RAW, the Intimacy still remains valid for future attempts at social influence, and can be reused for future Decision Points ad infinitum, (at least as long as WP remains available).

      Now, without Charms, that's already an issue. Consider Spirit Maintaining Manoeuver, and, well, she could probably ignore most of the Resolve-boosting Charms.

      So in short, it is my intuition that opening that option can have less-than-fun consequences. Or am I completely off-base?

          You've got this mixed up—the Intimacy you cite in a Decision Point needs to be equal or greater to the one that penalized your Resolve, not the one that boosted it.

            I think that phrasing is specific to a one ship vs. one ship scenario, not a one ship vs. two ships scenario.

                • Can a Lunar stack their Knockback Charm with the Knockback effect from wearing a Siege Lizard's shape? Or would the more powerful effect override the other?

                    The strategem still only affects one ship if successful though, yes?

                      • Will infernals be able to access the 2nd tier of necromancy this edition, and will they do so in an unusual way like 2nd?

                        Do any of the 3 mystery exalts go above the first circle of necromancy?

                        What made the devs decide to give lunars access to higher levels of necromancy? Was it a desire to make it less niche in the setting?

                          Undetermined.

                          Undetermined, but I doubt it.

                          It fits their themes as shamans and witches very well.

                              Assuming it's a stratagem that directly affects a ship, yeah.

                                My sense is that people get more excited by Charm previews than setting previews. Does that seem accurate to folks?
                                Given how much they change between editions I sure would like to see some setting previews.
