    I am trying to figure out how to implement Sealing magic similar to what is depicted in Naruto, Dragon Ball's "Mafuba" technique, or the various forms of sealing spirits in objects, caves, etc. I figured Solar Occult charms could easily accommodate breaking contracts/bindings between sorcerers and their summoned entities, and perhaps cover the act of sealing as well. But that would limit things to Solars and it doesn't cover things like suppressing essence. I see no reason even mortal sorcerers shouldn't be able to do this (albeit to a lesser degree). But Sorcerous Workings seemed too generalized for something that I'd think needs a set of rules. Any tips for how to structure this?
    There's multiple ways you could go about doing it—Charms, spells, an artifact which is itself a seal. It'd probably be useful to take a look at the Dragon-Blooded Occult Charm Anathema-Sealing Tomb.

        It's recommended playing for anyone. :-) I'm replaying it right now in my limited free time.

          Would it be reasonable to also let players apply mutations reflecting their old totem onto a new animal?

          For example, if your totem is an owl, and your new totem is a bear, you can have a furry owl totem. Which is pretty rubbish.
          But if you'd got bear first and then got owl, you could have a winged bear, or a DnD-style Owlbear, which is much better.
          So the order you get the two is quite important, and I assume it's not particularly meant to be.

          But I wonder if this is a deliberate balance concern.
          I wanted there to still be an emphasis on what the Lunar's first spirit shape was through using its traits, but if you flip that around, it won't break things.

            Yes, necromancy will have an analogue.

              Can chimera spirit shapes be in a similar boat to hybrid bodies in allowing a few superficial cosmetic traits to get the point across?


              I have approximate knowledge of many things.

                  It's currently "they get crashed and aren't able to come out of it before resetting naturally at the end of three rounds."

                      I appreciate the answer, but I just want to be clear to my original question about Unchained Monster Death-Rage. So with that end condition, would Unchained Monster Death-Rage end when the Lunar was crashed? Or after 3 rounds of crash? Sorry for all the questions, just trying to figure out how to run this fight.

                          I very much agree with this, but do you also agree that it's good as an idea of what an Exalted story can look like?

                          • Technically not a question, but would it be possible (when F@TG is more nailed down) to have a few sample characters (Lunars) and how the various hybrid body, chimera charms work or interact with each other?

                              We don't have space to add more character write-ups to Fangs at the Gate, although some will appear in the Kickstarter companion, Many-Faced Strangers.
