    So where do the Imperial Judges and their courts fit in since I had been imagining a bit of a split there?
    The Imperial courts address cases involving all citizens, not just Dynasts. And the magistrates are primarily investigators; their authority does overlap with the Imperial courts, but they don't just go out and preempt Dynastic civil cases or situations where the Imperial Force has already brought a Dynast before the courts. (Well, they could, and on rare occasions they probably do. But they generally have better uses for their time.)

      I'd never try to tell you guys how to do your job. But I would like to ask if there is any chance that the STguide could include some useful rule hacks to simplify Ex3? I know that could be a lot of work (and is possibly never happening), but I think it's worth asking about.

      Keep up the good work!

      • When a Immaculate have the Air Dragon Form activate and makes a Chakram attack to hit a target in Medium or Long range he needs Aim before?

        • Will The Realm say how many dots of backing some specific positions (legion ranks, magistrate, deliberator, etcetera) are worth?

          • How does a fresh Solar understand their Anima Effects? Are they aware that they now have weird powers like disappearing to a nearby place of power and sanctifying oaths, or is it more of an unconscious thing like Charms?

            • Regarding Strength Increasing Exercise, what is the maximum one can increase their strength to? The charm in the book can be confusing as the second to last sentence, past the comma, could refer to either the bonus that can't be more than double the Solar's strength or the actual strength score that can't be more than doubled.

              As this might be confusing, here is random character example

              Strength 2
              Essence 5

              Scenario 1: Can increase strength by 2 for a total of 4
              Scenario 2: Can increase strength by 4 for a total of 6

              • For Carnal Spirit Rending, what is in place to prevent someone from summoning demons or elementals to use as batteries to charge up for a fight?

                Cause it seems a summoner can have a spirit summoned and bound to them until they decide they need its powers for a fight, and then the party goes all Ides of March on the spirit to absorb the spirit's power in prep for a fight.

                  I'm going to leave extensive commentary on the Storyteller's Guide and its comments to Neall and Monica Speca, who are the book devs on it.

                    Yes. They count as being made from close range solely for determining the Accuracy bonus; for all other purposes, the actual range they're made from is used.

                      It doesn't provide exact dot ratings - and for some of those positions, there's not a single "one size fits all" dot rating - but it provides enough information for Storytellers to assess that for individual characters' positions.

                        Anima powers are similar to Charms, except that they emanate from your Caste or Aspect rather than your skills. You're aware that you can do them, the same way that a Solar with Blazing Solar Bolt is aware she can unleash deadly radiance from her sword, but you'd tend to think of it as acting in your role as an Eclipse Caste and Chosen of the Unconquered Sun to sanctify a witnessed oath, rather than casting a magical oath-sanctifying spell.

                          You can't gain more bonus dots of Strength from the Charm than you have actual dots of Strength. In essence, you can add a maximum of (lower of Essence or Strength) bonus dots.

                            Absolutely nothing. ^_^

                            Well. Your bound spirit might try to stop you, because even binding isn't going to make it happily consent to being murdered. But you're a Solar!

                              Is there a limit to how many different types of spirits/demons you can carnally rend per scene? And do other spirits that are bound get a chance to break their binding if they see this happen to another bound spirit?

                              Like if a sorceror has an elemental and a blood ape bound to it, and the sorcerer does carnal spirit rending on the elemental (or vice versa), would the blood ape have a chance to break the binding? "Hey, the elemental was just rent and devoured by my summoner. I'm not going to wait until he tries that on me. Screw that". Or would the blood ape have to wait for an attack to be free of the binding?

                                Mainly the Willpower cost.

                                And do other spirits that are bound get a chance to break their binding if they see this happen to another bound spirit?
                                No. A bound spirit can refuse an order like "stand still and let me kill you" as unacceptable influence, but that doesn't let them break their binding.
