    I think that's better handled by Storytellers on a case-by-case basis, rather than setting an absolute rule for a corner-case.

Since the hunt fails if the Lunar's guess is wrong, I'm assuming that getting the target to just tell him the correct answer doesn't count.

      But intense interrogation as a sacred hunt seems cool, so I'm torn on this one.
      Getting the target to tell you a secret counts for fulfilling the hunt.

        Should I assume that the trial is set up to weed out almost all such characters? For instance Ma-Ha-Suchi's trial sounds like it might weed out anyone who lacks the Stamina 3 or Resistance 3 to earn the Iron Stomach of his goatfolk.

        What about their descendants? Is the Merit dormant until they meet the prerequisites?
        You need the prerequisites to gain the mutation. I like your idea of it lying dormant until that's done.

I am just trying to figure out if it can be used multiple times on the same animal to raise its mental dice pools, which seems to be the implication. Either way I will put an errata note in for it as the WP, Resolve and Guile would need to be listed as having a cap like the dice pools do.
          Yeah, it should.

            You create two different six-point Hybrid Body Transformation "packages," and then would apply your six-point Chimera "package" to each of them when you shift into it.

            [quote]if it’s 12 points each, is the text supposed to note that along with the example of Beast-Form Empowerment?
            No.

            Can a Chimera make their two hybrid form from Shifting Beast nature 1 of the animals each? I.e. they have an Octopus,an form, a parrot-man form, and an octoparrot spirit shape.
            You get a wide choice of options in designing your hybrid form, so that sounds appropriate to me.

              It lets you apply it against characters who don't have the requisite Defining Tie towards you as long as they have a Tie for your current shape - but unlike the base effect, which always applies, this one only applies while they can see you.

                It does not give you the Resources.

                If yes, what level of Resources would i need per Command?
                That's going to be context dependent - if they're free to pillage the countryside along the march, then keeping them fed won't cost so much, for example, and there's further variability in terms of how much you're actually paying them and how much of your funding comes from actual assets vs. taking out loans.

                  Sorry, nitpicking: In Heirs, where the description for Deadly Essence Flashpoint says 'whenever she would roll anima flux', does that mean every turn or every instance you roll?

                  E.g. It's the start of your turn and you have three people in range of your anima flux. Can you commit one mote or three?

                  Thanks once again in advance.
                  It's per-turn, not per-enemy.

                    Now I’m confused again, because I’m not sure how that would be possible with what you just said. With our hypothetical octoparrot, who’s tentacles are part of their chimera package, wouldn’t those tentacles be slapped onto any hybrid form, so they can’t have a purely parrot one via Shifting Beast Nature?

                      You couldn't get a 100% octopus-related-mutation-free hybrid form, but you might have the hybrid form's tentacles be elongated parrot-y feathers or such.

                          Ah, the difference between "you" and "your shape" - thanks for the quick reply.

                            If you can model it as a character with Charms, Exigents will be useful for designing it.

                            • How does Ysyr feel about Necromancy? Does the Heptagram sanction classes on the topic? Can a dragonblooded learn both or is it solely the domain of dragons of another color?

                              • The map in the Core book has some places that aren't described anywhere: Randan, Lock, Last Zarlath, Redmoon, Capstone&Darkheart (I think that's it? There's a couple that I think aren't described in the Core, but are described in Lunars or the Realm). Is the intention to cover all of these in Across the Eight Directions, or leave some of them undescribed?
