    Ask the Devs v2

    It seems that, in my hubris, I've let the original Ask the Devs thread get a bit too long. If y'all wouldn't mind posting any new questions here.

    Thread rules
    -Please don't answer another forum user's questions in this thread to avoid clutter. If you quote them then the response will show up in their notifications reardless of where it is.
    -You can quote/link to an instance of a developer answering the same question. It saves them time and lets them focus on newer questions.

    Thanks everyone.

    Some shaping rituals let you bank sorcerous motes for a scene or longer. When shaping sorcery, are these motes declared/spent before the roll or can they be spent after?

    What Ability would botany be under? Like, a character who maintains a garden or greenhouse in order to cultivate plants for other purposes.

    I think this is just for developers. I could be wrong.

    My forum-search-fu is failing me, so forgive me if this has been asked before.

    Does an Ebon Shadow stylist gain the initiative opponents lose from Ebon Shadow Form's effect?

    Does the protean of finding the needles eye require some form of prehensile or attacking tail?
    Or does a animal like a wolf, great cat or some such qualify?

    Huh, I was sure they had something like this but looking through I can't find anything either.

    Is this a deliberate omission or did you just happen to not make any charms for it ?

    Pardon me if this has already been asked but how do Lunar doctors deal with aggravated damage in their Charm set? It seems DBs and Solars can shift aggravated to lethal but I can't find the equivalent in Lunars.

    Would you be willing to maybe explain how a Toad stylist eats soup or some other teaser for the offensive side?

    Things that are specifically bonuses to Might, like Tiger-Warrior Training Technique's bonuses, will stack with existing Might, but if you have, say, God-Blooded beastfolk, the Might they get for being beastfolk won't stack with the Might they get for being God-Blooded.

    This one is probably for Vance specifically.

    Is Toad Style still immensely strong, immune to nearly any weapon, and when properly used almost invincible?

    Or, in a less meme way, it's been mentioned that Five Deadly Venoms is the primary inspiration for the five venom styles and both Centipede and Snake very much feel like their cinematic namesake. But I'm really curious how Toad will work because my brain thinks "resistance charms but on the offensive?" and then kinda overheats and shuts down.

    Would you be willing to give more insight to how Toad will work in Many Faced Strangers, whether that be design philosophy and mechanical concepts or, if you're feeling really generous, a preview of a charm?
