  • Claws of the Silver Moon Question

    In the baseline usage this gives your HtH attacks "Speed +0, Accuracy +2, Damage +(Strength)L, Defense
    +0, Rate +0, and they may be used to parry lethal damage without magic or stunt". Good!

    At Essence 3 and 4 you get more bonuses, being "Accuracy +(Dexterity)" upgrade to accuracy and damage upgrades to (Strength + 2)L/(Essence + 1)

    Am I misunderstanding? With a Str 5 Exalt the everymen version does +5 damage, but in the high-Essence case it upgrades to 7/5 in the case of a Essence of 4? So +5 damage vs +1.4 damage?

    I am assuming I misunderstand. Please enlighten me.

    Claws of the Silver Moon only use your natural, unaltered attributes for calculating its stats as per its errata (See scroll of errata).

    I'd recommend capping the bonuses it gives at +5 as well.

      The /5 refers to Overwhelming.
      Same as stuff like artefact weapons that say "Damage 12/4". It doesn't mean the damage is 3.

      So in your example, the damage is 7, with a minimum of 5 dice after soak.
