  • How does Elusive Dream Defense work with regard to your dice caps? If its boost to Guile counts as Charm dice (as it doesn't say it doesn't), and I've got Resolve 5, Guile 5, and have already committed to Guarded Thoughts Meditation to get Guile 8, would it not be better to spend the 2m on Shadow Over Day to get Guile 10 and get the 2m back from Preeminent Gala Knife if I succeed?

      It's a bonus from Charms, just like everything that says it's not. Sometimes you won't have Guarded Thoughts Meditation up.

        I'd be more inclined to make it just an alternate way of having Mirror-in-Well Emanation work, but that's mostly in the interest of not requiring players to juggle the book-keeping involved in having a magic sentient reflection and a magic sentient shadow.

          All that matters is the shape you're in when you use this Charm.

            In theory, you're right; in practice, I've played this character for more than a year without dropping the commitment to Guarded Thoughts.

            ​(It just feels a little lackluster considering the Charm has thirteen prerequisites and a once-per-story limit on it. But I guess it could be valuable on the Resolve side of things. Either way, though, thanks for your answer.)

            • As Exigentes approaches,is it ok for me to ask questions about Umbrals?
              Very curious about 'em.

                Granted, but if you don’t have Appearance favored, would the suggested Int based version be reasonable? I know the charm isn’t totemic in Intelligence by default, but it feels appropriate to me for Int to have its own “Create a Spirit” charm and this seemed like a simple solution.

                    I run... Lunars: The Apocalypse! Exalted 3rd edition. Fimbulwinter is upon the world as an Ice Age begins, and only six young Lunar heroes have a chance of saving humanity.

                        You can ask, although I may not be able to get into all the details.

                          It doesn't strike me as unreasonable for Lunar Intelligence to be able to create spirits in ways like that.

                            Yeah.

                            Sounds fair. Just talk with your Storyteller to figure out the specifics and the dot rating for those mutations.

                            What about changing gender, would that work as a Mutation?
                            I'd let you use it to help with transition, although that's not something I'd charge recipients XP for like granting mutations does.

                              It still drains Willpower.

                                The "end of story" effect grants a specialty. The "succeed on a roll" just grants a topic.
