    replied to What Animal Styles do you want to see?
    I could stand to see a bear style, big brawly grapples, heavy focus on strength and stamina. Maybe make an extra focus on dealing damage in a clinch rather than using the throw option, or maybe make a special suplex throw. Form activation....maybe reflexive if you soak an attack down to below (Stamina)? That sounds like it might be too easy but you could make the style incompatible with heavy or even Medium Armor, that way you can only get it by soaking with your awesome essence enhanced bear pelt skin.

    Hey thanks Moss! It was a lot of work but also fun, and since I’m not in a game currently a good chance to work around the preview material. Hopefully the little problems get fixed for the final production but even if they aren’t it’ll be a god time. I’ll do my best to do the same for Lunars and Sids when they come out.

    I might even do an investigation of the Realm book, but that will probably be a lot less mechanically complex so I’m not sure how I would work it.

    Anyway if anyone has any requests of like “how would I do this as a DB.” People can let me...

    Well I might not have time to look at it in depth for a while but I think I’d like to try it out, for sure....

    Awesome! I think that would work really well because Solars tend to grow into stories that are definitely beyond what DBs tend to get involved in. Like wrestling titans into submission with their bare hands.



    I will do my best, unfortunately it's a lot of work on top of school and a job, but if people really find it useful I will make time. It was a bit easier with DBs because their style of play tends to be one that my players and I enjoy a bit more. It's not entirely the game's fault, I tend to run campaigns with 5 players who are all really savvy, but it can put a...

    Yeah that’s a tough one, I think it would be okay as a reflexive charm. As a simple it’s very situational and only really decent against enemies with large dice pools who can’t reroll 1s, or in fire aura against enemies with really small attack pools, although even then the chances aren’t good.

    At least with reflexive you’re paying 2 initiative to gamble on a few free excellencies.

    Edit: Actually after doing some math the chances of rolling at least one 1 on a big attack pool like 16 dice is pretty decent, so I’d say definitely solid in those situations as...

    Yeah, in fact considering the excellency adds a bonus effect even when it's at its most efficient it isn't as efficient, you need to be in Wood Aura for it to do anything really, in which case it should just be an Aura charm....

    I've personally seen him mention Sky Calming Draw and Flame Born Interception as being flagged for a second look, as well as Ringing Anvil Onslaught.

    I don't think the tweaks have to be major though, just a little smoothing out for a bump here and there....

    So... "short" story may be a bit misleading. It's a little long, and the action scene in particular drags a bit, but it has a lot of stuff I wanted to include. Story in the spoiler tags below. I also kind of wanted to write this as a refutation to people who think that DBs can't be cool and do cool stuff because they're not that powerful, so if anyone thinks that just show them this story. Also apologize on my behalf for the amateur writing.



    For this story I'm going to use these characters

    Wood Aspect Bard

    A very support based character who's supreme subtlety can leave her enemies wondering what even happened after the encounter.

    What she does in combat

    Combat can come in two ways for this character. The first starts when she's doing her thing quietly playing in the corner. If somebody susses out that she's more of a danger than she looks, they might just try to surprise her with an attack from nowhere, which is what Vibrating Strings Defense is for. When she's holding her Sanxian she can reflexively clash an attack against her, which both...

    Two wood aspects based off traditional DnD classes.

    Wood Aspect Ranger

    A hard survivalist character who can hunt, track, and kill just about anything with an arrow.

    What she does in combat

    In combat she has much the same strategy as the Air Aspected archer, with a few differences. One is simply that this ranger has Life Swelling Sap Strike, which gives the ranger another option in combat. Its primary use that you're going to want to do is smack targets that are using evasion as their primary defense, and do it early, so that they bleed initiative...

    So I didn't disappear, I just haven't really had proper computer access since the forum got unborked, and won't until tomorrow. The wood aspects are almost done, and after that I have a short fiction piece that I'm plotting out to have a rough but certainly plausible mechanical backing, which I will then explain. It will outline a few scenes where the characters use their various powers, merits and skills to act and support one another, and then a more detailed analysis of their strategy. The kind of thing that might happen at a table like "oh if you delay for this then I can do that and...

  • Just a quick question. You can clash a decisive with a withering right?
