        • In terms of Ox-Body, something came up in a discussion a while ago.

          Some Solar charms give bonuses based on your Attributes. Ox-Body is based on your Stamina, some Awareness charms give a bonus based on Perception, some Melee charms give bonuses based on Strength.

          Do any Lunar charms give bonuses based on Abilities? For example, Ox-Body giving more health levels if you have a better Resistance?

          • If a character has Lore (Realm History) and they want to gain a lore rating in say (Ancient Weapons), do they buy a new lore rating like craft or martial arts? Or is it just grab a specialty so they can apply the realm history dice on other lore rolls that aren't about realm history so long as they have a specialty?

            • Can modern Lunars still turn into snakes as long as rivers the same way they did in the Divine Revolution?

              In a previous post, you mentioned that simple charms with the same effects as solars charms and some "meat and potatoes" stuff would have the same power as Solars but they wont reach the absurd high level of power that latter Solar charms have. So what would be the upper cap level of power of Lunars? Is that already decided?

              • Bumping this, in case it's just a question you missed instead of something I'm not going to get an answer on.

                  There are Charms that require or enhance specific Ability rolls, but off the top of my head, I'm not sure if they have any similar to the examples you gave.

                    You just have a single Lore rating, like all the non-Craft/Martial Arts Abilities. You'd want a specialty.

                      Yep. Lunars are the best at being daikaiju.

                      However you want to conceptualize the upper cap level on Solar power, the cap on Lunars would be a bit below it, but not as much as in past editions.

                        It doesn't automatically go away, it just becomes subject to being weakened and removed like a normal Intimacy.

                        • So the strength of Lunar Ox-body in 3e is solely based on their stamina?

The peasantry (and the Dragon-Blooded not interested in theology) don't really need to know much more than "it's because they stole the power of the sun and moon."
                              What does it mean to be 'Exalted' within this (in universe) context? I can understand the Dragonblooded as small-e exalted individuals who have achieve their position due to the blood of the dragons and a virtuous past life seeing a degree of comonality between themselves and god-blood, who also recieve powers by dint of their birth and (one assumes) living a previous life virtuous enough to be born into that position (but not enough to be born a DB). Similarly, I can see the commonality between a vile anaethma who has been granted their power by the incarnae without need for virtue or enlightenment, and an exigent who is also granted unearned gifts by gods who overstep their role in the perfected hierarchy. But I can't see why (to a DB) an anaethma would be considered Exalted like a dragonblood, and a godblood would not be.

                              I appreciate, to a older sideral or god the grouping of 'Exalted' (which may exists as a legal grouping within the laws of heaven) would make sense as 'one of the beings created to fight the great war against the primordials' (which would rightly exclude godblood from being an exalt), but to my knowledge dragonblood don't possess that level of knowledge of ancient history of heavenly law.

                                Do you have any power, at least the narrative, that you can spoil that represents the upper cap of power?
