    That's not usually a good thing, see 2e's Epic Zeal of (Virtue), I think it works in this case though because it actually does kind of fit with the Solar style. It's why they don't get a charm like Soaring Zephyr Flight. Eagle Wing Style is actually a better charm for almost anything you'd care to use it for, but it isn't just straight up flight in the same way at all. It helps that the DB ones especially have their own safeguards built in, even if they subvert the normal ones.

    Sure, but we know a DB can get to Resolve 14 with an excellency and intimacy. That's without charm purchases. And that's not easy to get through.
    Wait, what, how does a DB get to 14 with just an excellency and an intimacy? Are you counting stunts/willpower?

        1pt stunts, yeah.
        Resolve 6, +3 excellency, +4 intimacy, +1 stunt.

        This requires an applicable speciality though.


        My characters:
        Dr Soma Vaidya, viper-totem Lunar and kung-fu doctor
        Brother Alazar, Zenith occultist and last survivor of the Black Monastery of Leng

          Oh right, that's true, although if you're targeting an existing intimacy they'll take at least a -1 penalty from having an intimacy that supports your action. Either way though it's not exactly trivial for a Lunar or Sidereal, probably, to overcome it.

                That wasn’t exactly the same or the entire question, I just finished writing my take on it.
