      Not a dev. But as far as i know they are going to be described in exigents but as optional exalt types, they won't be statted up.

        Yep. Its attacks can be enhanced with any compatible Martial Arts Charms, and any offensive Charms that are compatible with all Abilities.

          They aren't Exigents, but they'll be detailed in an appendix to the Exigents book.

            Yep, specialties apply to static value calculations as well as dice pools.

              Enh. I sorta prefer the elegance of just having it be one a night, but I can't say it'd be objectively wrong.

              • So, one of my players recently bought Prophet-Uplifting Evocation (core, pg. 373) and promptly Uplifted him a few Prophets.

                The Charm grants its subjects a mote pool, but they only get a Charm to spend those motes on if they have exceptional Resolve, so what else can they do with those motes?

                Could they learn and use Martial Arts charms? Attune to Artifacts?

                • When it comes to the limits of solar charms in this edition vs previous ones.
                  In second edition there was the charms called The Truth Shines Through (GotMH Unconquered Sun pg 24) that allowed people with a positive intimacy towards the character to know he was not himself but not know why while under the effects of the great curse.

                  Also in there was a charm known as Shedding Infinite Radiance (GotMH Unconquered Sun pg 37) That allowed a Solar charm to improve the effects of his Anima powers.

                  Are these charms that you feel should still be possible within 3rd edition or would you like to not invoke these types of mechanics in this edition.

                  • Does stormwind rider persist while no-one is riding it? Ie. can someone summon a dust devil, get off, and then get back on without casting the spell again?

                      Nope. 10char

                        Truth Shines Through isn't something I see as viable, primarily for setting integrity reasons. Shedding Infinite Radiance seems fine, although I suspect the more fleshed-out anima powers of Ex3 would make that design space trickier.

                          It doesn't confer the ability to learn Martial Arts Charms or Evocations. Attuning to artifacts is a bit of a gray area; I don't think it'd do anything terrible.

                          • Is there any new exalts you guys are planning to make( and potentially give them their own splatbook) that you have not told us about?

                              In what range would you place his "power level"?

                              • So, my players really like the more roleplaying heavy expressions of the Great Curse you guys did for DBs in WFHW. Are Lunars looking at a more mechanically crunchy Limit system closer to Solars in the core, and that approach mostly just being limited to Lunars, or might we see something similar in splats going forward?

                                Because it was really cool seeing my playgroup actually want to engage with Limit/the Great Curse, given they've rarely had reasons to really enjoy the ticking time bomb aspect, but acting out their characters' flaws in larger amounts for XP was generally a more interesting incentive than the Willpower recharge.
