    We plan to include several maps in Across the Eight Directions to cover as many locations as possible.

    • When a Lunar Charm triggers off using a full excellency (like Unerring Fang Technique) and I stunt a second attribute to increase my dice cap, do I have to buy enough dice to meet the new cap for the Charm activate? (Or is reaching my normal dice cap enough?)

      • Hi, im wondering in the case of Holy touch (p.21 MSE) it says it instantly breaks a grapple if you land a charisma or appearance + presence Decisive Gambit , How does this interact with Unbreakable Graps wich is a fraction of the price. Does the Grappler only pay 2 mote if you land it or is the grapple broken as it says in holy touch?

          You have to hit whatever you maximum dice cap is, including anything that increases the dice cap.

            Unbreakable Grasp won't help against Holy Touch.

                Moon-and-Earth Marriage is not a Charm I ever would've foreseen before a backer asked for it, so it's not particularly well-defined territory. My instinct would be that would something entirely between the Dragon-Blood and the Solar, rather than having the Lunar as an intermediary.

                    1.) are the passage of time and the order of actions for everyone in the scene tracked by rounds and initiative, or do people not aware of the combat still function as if they're in a social scene?
                    Everyone gets rolled into combat.

                    (The same is true for an assailant using ordinary stealth.)

                    2.) does everyone receive the 5-motes-per-round in-combat rate of mote regeneration even if they aren't consciously aware that they're in combat?
                    Yes.

                    Can a White Veil stylist enter White Veil Form before rolling Join Battle? (Or even without any intention to Join Battle, just as a scenelong Guile booster?)
                    Yes.

                      You aren't literally reflecting the attack back at him; you're letting the physical momentum of the attack and the spiritual power cause your attacker to overextend and leave himself in a disadvantageous position.

                        I'm not entirely sure that's an accurate description of the Fair Folk in any edition? Either way, in Ex3, the Fair Folk are first and foremost the beautiful, monstrous princes of chaos, who both love and hate Creation.

I ask since with Solars and DBs, while Solars can choose five out a list of 8, DBs five aspected abilities are slotted. So considering that Lunars at char gen pick 2 of their 3, would it make sense to just give Liminals 2?
                          Current plan is that Liminals pick 2 out of 3.

                          Dragon-Blooded not having any additional Abilities to choose from isn't a power level thing; the Dragon-Blooded Aspect Ability spreads already avoid a lot of the monofocus that the Solar spreads suffered from in previous editions and which the 5 of 8 was introduced to remedy.

                              We don't give precise numbers for them; the Storyteller can decide what works best during the process of integrating the optional canon Exalted into their game. You're right in that the answer probably isn't very many.

However, what happens if you use the excellency to boost a single attack roll that hits multiple people, such as the new essence 4 Air melee AoE charm? Assuming your current discounted foe is among the targets, do you get the discount? Does it reset?
                                As long as your original target is one of the enemies included in your AoE, you're good.
