    Copying Charms as Evocations could work if you really have trouble with homebrew, although I definitely wouldn't do it if you have someone else actually using the relevant Charms. If someone is already playing a Dragon-Blooded archer, you might want to come up with something else for your powerbow.

    ...I kinda want to see a 3e version of the Deadly Transformation Armor now. There should be a lot of cool Evocations you could develop for a transforming moonsilver armor without actually duplicating DBT. (Well, I assume anyway. I guess we don't know how 3e DBT will work yet.)

      It's not necessarily something they're actively doing to spite you and ruin your game, but someone who wants Dragon-Blooded charms on their Solar probably has an interesting relationship with Dragon-Blooded that you don't want to be blindsided by.

        The bow has its appeal to the Dragon-Blooded too, since its Evocations would lack the Wood keyword and thus not interfere with Air or Water Auras.

        And of course, knowing the parallel Wood-Elemental Archery Charms could make the woody Evocations more powerful.
