    Do you feel that the Pestletail's special attack should be treated as a Magical Attack that only Pestletail familiars should be able to learn?
    It's a powerful ability that I wouldn't want to overproliferate.

      It wasn't the direct cause, and the death of the Incarna that created them is, in part, a detail included to convey that killing an Incarna won't stop their Chosen.

        Also, if a new god did need to be made for a specific role, one that one of the unemployed gods wouldn't be suited for, would that be one of the Incarnae who would create that god?

          1. If you manage to crash a foe with it, do you get the initiative break after you Reset (and keep the +5 Init) or do you get it before you Reset (and thus do not benefit from it)?
          I think a good rule of thumb is to assume that Initiative Breaks don't go to waste unless specified otherwise.

          2. Can you combine Terrifying Dragon Roar with the Predator’s Menace Latent ability to strip 2 initiative per point that you beat a foe’s resolve?

          Many thanks!
          The two effects are compatible as written.

            While we haven't yet discussed the specifics of how new gods are created, the Celestial Incarnae are almost definitely too busy taking their leisure at the Games of Divinity to attend to such concerns.

            • So two patrons questions-

              What exactly are the Five Elemental Dragons doing in modern times? Like, we know that the Celestial Incarna sit in Yu Shan and play the Games of Divinity from one side, and personally (at least, the Sun and Luna) grant Exaltation to their Chosen. But the Dragons seems to be much less involved in the Exaltation and life of the Dragon-Blooded. So are they doing something, taking a dominant role (well, as dominant as the Incarna) in the Elemental Courts? Or do they just stay asleep?

              As for the second question- if the long dead creator of the Hearteaters were to see what their Chosen became, how would they react? Disgusted? Interested? Thrilled?

                We've not yet addressed the activities or lack thereof of the Five Elemental Dragons in text, but plan to do so in the future, so I'll hold off on saying something here that might end up tying our hands down the road.

                  • While you’ve said the optional Exalts might get additional material later if there’s enough interest would you be okay just doing one and not all then? Like if Heart-eaters are a fan favorite but nobody likes Umbals would you do a Heart-eater book only?

                      This is a hypothetical, so hopefully doesn't touch too much on these toes, but if, say, the Lunars really did figure out a a way to genocide the DBs, would there be a reaction from the Dragons? Like, would they be royally pissed at the Lunars and make trouble?

                      • If one of my circlemates uses the lunar charm Sharing Luna’s Gifts on me when I am in one of my animal shapes, does only that shape change? And does it do so permanently?

                        • How many people actually know about The Regent and his activities with the Immaculate texts? The fact the Mouth of Peace has issued a proclamation saying that it is a valid style of worship sort of makes it seem like he's just wandering around pleasuring himself in public.

                            That sounds like a decision for the Storyteller.

                              Right now we have enough scheduled books on our plate that it doesn't make sense to speculate about hypothetical books.

                              • Can Supplemental Charms be used on a Simple Charm? I don't know why, but I am having a hard time finding this answer.

                                Also, do Reflexive Charms that create Clash cost you your 1 Combat action per turn?
