  • Assuming that future splat book Kickstarters have the various “add a charm or artifact to the companion book” levels, would it cause problems if backers at that level submitted a fully realized charm or artifact that they had written instead of just an idea?

    What if they had already posted said charm or artifact to the internet (or Storyteller’s Vault)? Would that be a different issue?

    • Is it possible we will get more info on the storm demon Yan in heirs of the shogunate? (Yan is ledaal kebok coren's demon grandpa)
      Also is there a connection between Yan and the Storm Demoness Akavadra? (Inside Stormcaller)

      • Some more Lunar questions:

        Can you cast spells when in the form of an animal? If not generally, what about an animal with hands and stuff (like a monkey or something)?

        You've said Lunars are going to choose 2 caste attributes and 2 favoured attributes (which I think is a really good idea). How many favoured attributes will Casteless Lunars have?

          Yep. This ain't D&D.

            It's not impossible.

            Undetermined.

              It's likely that the submitted Charm/artifact would undergo edits and revisions, but beyond that, it's not an issue.

              I'm not sufficiently familiar with the Storyteller's Vault's terms of use to speak authoritatively on it. I'd have to ask.

                  Nah, their sensory enhancement Charms go their own way.

                  • So this turned into a debate in my game last night. A Solar flying with evocations is fueling a storm god who is also flying. The storm god wants the fight to move upwards towards the storm clouds above, while the Solar wants to move the fight towards the ground below. Neither is actually wanting to disengage and increase the distance to one another. Any advice on how to resolve it?

                      I'm pleasantly surprised. And tempted to fight in the form of a small animal to get that +2 Evasion bonus from the Tiny merit while casting spells...


                      It was mentioned that Lunars have an instinctual understanding that they've found their Solar mate, when they meet them.

                      Do they have an instinctual understanding of how to do the sacred hunt, and that they can gain forms by eating hearts?


                      But I think the most important question of all, when it comes to Lunars is this:
                      Does Dog-Tongue Method still exist?
                      Is it still called Dog-Tongue Method?
                      Is there a mechanical bonus for players if they bark like a dog, meow like a cat, etc, when using the charm?
                      How many charms in the Lunars book include the word "Puppy" in the title?

                        Could Evocations fill in this gap in ability?

                            Without specific magic or extrinsic means of motivation, there's no way to compel an enemy to follow you.

                              More or less. If you want your backstory to have Luna showing you how to perform the sacred hunt, or a First Age flashback that shows it to you, you can do that, but it's not something you'll need a tutor to learn.

                              But I think the most important question of all, when it comes to Lunars is this:
                              Does Dog-Tongue Method still exist?

                              There's a comparable effect, but it's not really the same. Different name, different Attribute.

                              How many charms in the Lunars book include the word "Puppy" in the title?
                              None. Lunars are red in tooth and claw, not cutesy.

                                I'd advise against circumventing that limitation, as it's there for a specific reason, but if you're the Storyteller, then how do I plan to stop you?
