    I don't foresee any balance issues.
    Thank you. good to know as I am planning someone who makes use of MMA a bit.

      Pursuant to this point: is it possible to do Single Point attacks without re-sheathing your sword every time? That would be a problem (or at least very annoying) with Stormcaller.

      The Form description says it's "customary" to re-sheathe your sword after every strike, which I would not generally interpret as an actual requirement, but the description also implies that the buildup of Essence might actually erupt somehow if you don't keep sheathing it. (But then, Stormcaller's going to erupt if you do sheathe it.)

      Void-Slicing Wind, Horizon-Swallowed Star Flash, and Six-Demon Scabbard Binding also specifically describe sheathing one's sword as part of the Charm. Should those be interpreted as actual requirements?

      Or can you do all the Single Point tricks while just stunting some other manifestation of Essence eruption and/or sealing away wasted force or whatever?

        I suppose I was asking in the Christian sense, but I guess the broader question would be what does the Immaculate Order do for the layity? Are Immaculate monks, as a rule, ministers and spiritual guides to the common people? Does an Immaculate have eclesiastic authority over a dynast, in theory if not in fact? Are the immaculates functionally just the supernatural SWAT Team? Or should I just wait until WFHW comes out?

          I second this query.

            You're supposed to sheathe it after every attack while in the form. If you deliberately don't to avoid trigger Stormcaller, the Storyteller certainly has license to make the Essence build-up bite you.

              The primary interactions between Immaculate monks and layfolk is leading them in venerating gods in accordance with the prayer calendar — and, in the case of the peasantry, providing education. More detail will come in The Realm.

                What form would this take? I honestly don't know myself.

                • Can Gorgon slotted with the Twin Crescent Stone be used with steel devil? Since reaver daiklaves are artifact chopping swords.

                    So nothing remotely fantastic? So nothing in the vein of say Monster Hunter or anything with a strange, unusual, or fantastic biology? Does that put things like Rocs off the table because they're still able to fly despite being so large?

                    • Assuming this has been discussed already or just as a bit of eyeballing, where would you place the Infernal Devil Tiger-ish Charms (inner world + demon pantheon and any other surviving bits) in terms of Essence prerequisite, and do you have an Ability/Abilities in mind for where they would be located? Instinct kind of points towards Occult (Ephemeral Induction Technique and the likes) but Infernals being weird I'd rather ask~

                                No final decisions have been made yet, but my get says either Occult or Integrity.
