  • Forum Lunar Game: Attributes in Unusual Places

    So, Lunars need to stunt to include off-attributes in their actions for Excellency purposes. This will require practice.

    Thus: A game!

    Give a brief stunt demonstrating how to include a given attribute in a given action, and then provide an attribute and action for the next poster.

    I.E if the previous post requested "Stamina" with "A melee attack (Dexterity + Melee)", my stunt might be

    "I let the incoming attack glance off my essence-hardend shoulder, forcing an opening for stabination."

    First up: Charisma and Parry Defense!

    "I give a wink and a winning smile to the charging immaculate, causing them to become flustered and fumble their swing."

    For harder/wierder one, adding Strength to a Perception+Investigation roll to case a scene.


    Are you in the market for some Martial Arts? Perhaps some custom Artifacts for your campaign?

      Bah! Harder! "I carefully lift up all the heavy objects in the room, looking underneath them for anything that might have rolled under them or were otherwise hidden."

      How about adding Appearance to a (Wits + Sail) roll to steer a one-person boat around a naval hazard?

        I stand at the prow of my ship, daring the spirits of the sea to harm one as beautiful as me.

        Strength, writing poetry to advertise an opera

            Edit: Wow, that took longer to write then I thought it did.

              "A boulder is just like a person; all you really need is leverage."

              Next: add Dexterity to an (Intelligence + Lore) roll to introduce a fact.

                While examining a piece of pottery at market, you carefully feel out all of its dimensions, running along its contours and probing its cavities, to introduce a fact about the quality of that form of jar or vase as a storage medium.

                Apply Appearance to the Wits + Occult roll needed to break attunement to a demesne.

                  Next: Give me Appearence on a (Perception + Larceny roll)

                    Walking down the street, I flash a sparkling grin, and sparkling coins. As I attract everyone's attention, I note who's admiring my chiseled jaw and baby-blue eyes, and whose eyes are instead drawn to my coin-purse.

                    Strength on a Join Battle roll.

                      Muscles rippling, I explode in a bolt of sheer kinetic energy, arcing mercilessly towards my prey. All they can do is stand there still slack jawed and glassy eyed.

                      Charisma on a Int + Craft (Artifact) roll. (And it can’t be for Adorei, that’s cheating!)

                        In the forge-temple, hammers ring and sparks fly as apprentices move and work. I stand in the centre, directing them. My loyal apprentices hang on my every word as I direct them. Slowly, the warstrider begins to take shape.

                          "You know the kuji-in breathing exercises that help purge the toxins within yourself, simply meditate upon them, focussing your mind on the flow of air within..."

                          Next: Can I get a stunt for Appearence on a Stamina/Resistance roll please?

                            Not to call foul, but that sounds like something that needs to be introduced as a fact before being used.

                            As to the game, "I give the snake that bit me the ugliest glare I can muster, cowing it such that not only does it retract its fangs, but also much of its venom as well."

                            Next: Charisma on a roll against water pressure while deep sea diving.

                              Was this a response to myself, or The MG?
