    Wait, t doesn't? The charm text doesn't say one way or another. I would have guessed that without the exception, all clash charms count as your attack for the turn. Are we to assume that clash charm DON'T count as the attack action for a turn unless they say they are? In the core, there's clash charms that explicitly say they do count as the attack AND charms that say they don't count as the attack for the turn so I'm not sure what the default assumption is.
    Going forward (i.e. from Arms of the Chosen on), clashes, counterattacks, and other reflexive attacks will specify if they count as your attack for the round.

    The other thing with Dragonfly Finds Mate is that since you're initiating a clash against an oncoming attack, do you still suffer the full penalty of losing a clash if you fail to gain more successes than your opponent?
    Yep, that's true of any reflexive clash Charm.

    • I couldn't find anything on this particular problem so I'll ask here.

      Does the Defining Intimacy of lust that Celestial Bliss Trick creates count as something you can resist normally by spending a Willpower, like other types of social interaction that inflicts a Intimacy onto you?

      • Suppose I receive five initiative from a district gambit, then take five initiative damage, then do something on my turn other than attack the distracted foe. What happens? Do I still lose five initiative or is the “transferred” initiative already lost?

          Thanks for the response! Just a follow-up: I assume that since it doesn't specify otherwise, a ranged clash inflicts damage as normal?

              I'd lean towards you losing the Initiative. It doesn't seem like "double-dipping" is the intent of the gambit.

                No. Celestial Bliss Trick isn't an instill action.

                • If I remember correctly, you said that Exigents would include 4 example/sample Exigent types, one of which would be Architects (like the one in the Core)? Do I remember correctly?
                  Which is cool, I liked the Architect, and it seems obvious that you could have Architects of different cities.

                  Can you give us any hints as to the other 3?

                  Also, will the 3 non-canon Exalt types use any rules from the rest of the book, or have entirely their own stuff?

                  I don't know if this is stuff you've decided yet, since I imagine you're busy with Lunars and Heirs to the Shogunate, but I thought I'd ask.

                  Shadow of Kings, Twilight barbarian scholar, master of lost First Age crafting techniques. Has a lot of clones. Picture by Jen.

                  • Will Exigents go in detail on how exactly the Celestial Bureaucracy works, like how a god's purviews is attached to job, how they get and are assigned to those jobs and how they can lose them and what that would be like, and other stuff like that? I'm wondering since the concept of divinity in Exalted in regards to everything below the Incarna is a little bit hard to grasp.

                    • Also, how a god's jobs and the beliefs of their worshippers shape them.

                      Obviously they shape them a bit; Ahlat has a cow head, not a walrus head. On the other hand, they clearly don't shape them 100%; Ahlat's still cow-themed despite no longer being god of southern cattle.

                        Ahlat is still the Southern god of cattle, as per Exalted Third Edition, p. 514.

                          We hope to provide more detail on the Celestial Bureaucracy in Sidereals.

                            That's correct.

                            Every type of Exigent has "their own stuff," so I'm not sure I can provide a meaningful answer.

                            • That's an answer in of itself, so that's fine. Thankyou.

                                Thx, yeah I figured if it wasn't in Exigent it would probably be in Sid. Wondering, how much detail do you think you guys will go into Gods in Exigent? While most of the book does seem like it will mostly homebrew advice, will there at least be more of an expansion on them from what we can get from the Core?
