    It's interesting that this is moving up sooner than The Realm, which IIRC is supposed to be released first. This makes a ton of sense though--Dragon-Blooded will need to spend a ton more time in development than The Realm. If my thinking is right, this means they're really trying to get these releases out as compactly as possible.

    I do wonder what the playtesting process looks like for a splat like Dragonblooded.

  • To me, the biggest downside of BSS is what people are saying, that it's not free with another charm. My main Solar PC will happily buy a lower level charm to unlock that AND the excellency in its ability. One of our Storyteller's favorite things about upgrading to 3e was the ubiquity of excellencies, including for favored/caste skills.

    I'm really interested to see how the increased barrier to entry with these excellency+half-charms plays out. Its the only part of the charm designs that I'm not extraordinarily enthusiastic about so far, so I'm really eager to see how it fits into...

    This is correct. If upgrading your BG's dice pool by (effectively) 4 dice increases the individuals win rate...I admit to being puzzled. I think something's gone wonky with your methodology here.



    I really recommend taking a look at the Command Merit to understand the relative value of a Battle group compared, to, say, an artifact. At two dots, a PC starts with a Size 3 group. If you decide you want battlegroups more simulationist than narrativist, your players will almost certainly recognize the merits in this. PCs can start with battlegroups for next to nothing, and...

  • Thanks for taking the time to give us some insight! I'm really enjoying what we've seen of the DB's so far, so I'm very excited for the next few releases!...

    I sort of agree with the previous posts in that I think you've sort of missed the boat on what BGs are meant to do thematically and mechanically. However, I think The Unsung Hero has a point in what you said your goals were, so let's talk about that.

    I share Heavy Arms' concern about the methodology. Elite Troops 1v1 having won that much more vs a size one battlegroup, which is almost a strict upgrade, is puzzling to me. Unless its raw damage output is enough to crash the BG version very very quickly, I'd take a look at that part of the data. Perhaps being Poor Drill is that much...

  • Hmm, it looks like you're right. Feria's writeup has attack and Parry adders broken up over Stoking Bonfire Style and Blinding Spark Distracting. I wonder if that will be true for Brawl as well, of if it won't have a Parry adder. I imagine it must, for Martial Arts to use.

    It's interesting that they decided to go with success additions rather than dice additions for the social skills and Dodge. I wonder why that is?...

  • And Feria's writeup also has some evocations!

    I think I like the new DB dice adders so far. Stoking Bonfire Style and Hammering Wave Technique both seem solid as dice adders and give some marginal effects that seem to make them effective as entry-level charms....

    I'm once again incredibly excited by the DB previews. If I recall correctly, you said this was a three part series, but three releases is a long time for my tender heart to hold out without more of this sweet elemental mojo. Any chance we'll be seeing more? Maybe some of those dice adders?

    Please man, I'm pretty much a junkie in need of a fix at this point.
