    I see, so how viable are the charms when used outside of animal form then? Are they still able to keep pace with Solars on the whole in human form, or do the charms only work comparably in animal forms?

    • Hey, apologies if this question has been answered before, but: how do Charms such as Wake the Sleeper and Design Beyond Limit interact with Charms that create Artifacts with Evocations? I'm specifically thinking of ones such as Immaculate Golden Bow or Glorious Solar Saber, which ordinarily allow repurchases to add Evocations to the Artifact's repertoire. Would it be possible to use the aforementioned Lore or Craft Charms to add and/or unlock additional Evocations beyond the number granted by repurchases, or are they only able to target free-standing, "permanent" Artifacts? If they can be used in this fashion, what dot rating should Charm-created Artifacts be considered to have?

      E: Additional question, regarding Lunars and parity (or lack thereof) with Solars in mixed games: any chance we'll see some guidelines on tweaking power levels to taste if the default assumptions aren't quite to a group's liking? I can see some potential for the Apocryphal keyword from MotSE to do some heavy lifting here, allowing Lunar PCs some ability to play around at the same level of cosmic absurdity as Eye of the Unconquered Sun or God-King's Shrike without deforming the setting through the assumption that all Lunars must be capable of the same.

      • Also sorry for the double-post but I tried to edit this question into my last post and the forums ended up eating it. Regarding parity (or lack thereof) between Solars and Lunars in mixed groups: is there any chance we'll see some guidelines for tweaking power levels to taste, for the benefit of players who aren't that wedded to baseline setting assumptions? In particular, I'm thinking that the Apocryphal keyword from Miracles of the Solar Exalted could do some heavy lifting here, allowing Lunar PCs to play around at the same levels of cosmic "whuh-oh!" as capstone Solar Charms such as Eye of the Unconquered Sun or God-King's Shrike without deforming the setting through the assumption that all Lunars must then necessarily be capable of the same.

        • I might be remembering wrong, but I think I read a long time ago that there were going to be more Infernal Exalted in 3E than just the Green Sun Princes. Assuming I didn't dream that, is that still in the cards?

            Hmm. I'm not sure what the intention was, although I don't think there'd be any harm in allowing it.

            If they can be used in this fashion, what dot rating should Charm-created Artifacts be considered to have?
            Default to three dots.

              That's something we might discuss in the Storyteller's Guide.

                It's not. The Green Sun Princes are the only Infernal Exalted.

                • Can't remember if this has been answered, but how does Safety Among Enemies (and any similar effect) work when redirecting an attack against a target with a defensive excellency or other reflexive defence enhancer? Can they just choose to pay until their defence beats the redirected attack (dice caps permitting), or is the attack compared against their base defence to see if it hits them.

                    • Do Exalted count as mortals for effects that affect mortals (Such as charm effects)?

                          Exigents will be sufficiently overstuffed that we won't have room, aside from specific character elements like Strawmaiden Janest's artifact scythe.

                              Nope. Once you Exalt, you're in the big leagues.

                                Not in a single, monolithic way that's easy to generalize about it. There's some mention of the ways individual Lunars have done so in Fangs at the Gate.
