    So, my friend's familiar is stuck in combat and trying to run away.
    It's a QC, so doesn't have a Disengage pool.
    Should we double it's Evasion in dice? Or use the Combat Movement?
    QCs use their combat movement pool for disengages, rushes, withdrawing, rising from prone, and whatever else may come up.

    Also, the rules for Speed bonuses say you add them to Dex+Ride rolls to Disengage, Withdraw and Rush when using them as mounts.
    If the animal is unridden, does it still get the Speed Bonus to these rolls?
    It's already factored into their combat movement pool.

      It'd certainly make a good stretch goal for Lunars.

      • How good was the plan of showing the content of the book during the kickstarter?
        Do you plan on doing it for the future splats?

        • First a mechanics question:
          Plentimon's Ladybug has a charm where "the Ladybug bites someone", and then they have a fortuitous meeting within the next 5 hours.
          It's an Eclipse charm, but doesn't say how it works for Eclipses. I assume we replace "Ladybug" with "the Eclipse" and so the Eclipse has to bite someone to activate it?
          (Not get a ladybug to bite someone.)

          Second, the Deliberative guys who did the Playtest didn't know anything about Lunar anima powers.
          Can you tell us anything about them?
          'm guessing they all have 3 powers now, like DBs and Solars.
          I also guess that the Full Moon one is the most similar to the old powers, conceptually, but maybe the other two have changed a lot.
          Are they similar to the old ones, or very different? Can Changing Moons still use illusions to disguise themselves? Are No Moon anima powers still about shadow and sorcery? Anything else you'd like to tease?

          • Can the 2m effect of Iron Skin Concentration be used to soak overwhelming damage? If not is the only effect this charm defends against is the unsoakable damage from"Torn Lotus Defense"?

              I have to admit, I'm quite intrigued to see what a non-Jade (and thus, not elemental-themed) firewand or flamepiece could be like.

                I'll be honest, I don't remember whether it's a firewand or a flamepiece off the top of my head.

                  There might be unsoakable damage in future publications (or maybe some in current ones that I don't remember off the top of my head).

                    They've changed and expanded a fair bit.

                      As far as I'm concerned, it was a great success, but that's ultimately OPP's call to make, not mine.

                      (I don't have any reason to think that OPP wouldn't want to do that, but I don't want to make promises that aren't mine to make)

                        That's fair!

                        I can't speak statistically, but anecdotally, getting the text was what got me and some of my friends to pledge. And once I was already pledging, I thought I might as well get most of the extras.
                        Most of us had never pledged to an rpg KS before, and one guy had pledged like $2-300 to the 3rd ed Exalted KS, then had to wait years and years for it. I'm sure he wouldn't have pledged without the text.

                        Certainly getting the Lunars text during the KS will be a big encouragement to me to pledge.

                        • what happens if a Fire Aspect flares their anima while going for a swim? What happens if you cast Stormwind Rider underwater? Man this underwater fighting business is turning out to be more complicated that I thought.


                          Are you in the market for some Martial Arts? Perhaps some custom Artifacts for your campaign?

                            Steam, probably.

                            It doesn't work for underwater travel.

                              Because this gave me a laugh in the middle of a tough day, I'd like to echo this question, but about Moonshadow Caste Abyssals biting people for good luck.

                              (Happy Abyssalween!)

                              • I have a player that's using familiars with Survival for the first time. They want an Eagle and are unclear how Death Dive, Eagle Wing Rush, and Swooping Descent all deal with range. There's an impression that an Eagle can somehow cross Long Range to Close in an instant but it doesn't mechanically say that. But if it can't, Swooping Descent is strange since it specifies gaining stealth from Long Range and somehow maintaining that for an ambush (despite taking 3 rounds to close the distance to an enemy). Can you help clarify any of this interaction for us or at least help us with a good ruling?


                                I post Artifacts in this thread. How I make them is in this thread.
                                I have made many tools and other things for 3rd Edition. I now host all of my creations on my Google site: The Vault of the Unsung Hero
