    I mostly meant if it was something expected of a Realm or Lookshyian DB for example to able to rouse the spirit of their weapon. Not looking for hard numbers so much as curious as to how out of the ordinary it is to do it.

    It makes sense that an artifact is not very useful without a wielder (unless you want an exceptionally heavy paperweight) but do any factions beyond the big ones boast a notable arsenal?

    Also would you say that overstating how many exalts are loyal to you (as a ruler) is common tactic in Creation for intimidation?

    Ty again for being so...

    A question regarding the question of artifacts. Each one is it's own marvel worthy of legend but some factions have enough to provide them to a great many. Even an unawakened artifact is fearsome. The question is, how frequently do Exalts of factions with arsenals manage to awaken the spirit of their artifacts? Is knowing the equivalent to an evocation or two common?

    Also in 3rd, which factions beyond the Realm and Lookshy boast considerable Arms of the Chosen? In both number and earthshattering might?

    I guess my previous question was a tad bit loaded so will repeat the one that has me morbidly curious.

    Have you guys seen the sketches in so far? What are your favourites at the moment? Which Warstrider will get portraits?

    This is more of a question on your personal stances on something that I have always seen as one of the most destructive aspects of the fan debates.

    Why do you guys think that people are so fixated on power levels when the game has had a pretty fixed and flexible hierarchy since it's inception? I know it is a loaded question but I am very curious on your views regarding this. Not your view on the subject so much as why you think that it is so common.

    On a less loaded front, what are your favorite pieces of art for Arms? Among the ones done already of course!

    Question about Familiars. Would heavy investment in the Survival tree upgrading them infer that they have become immortal (In terms of lifespan) or should that be a custom charm/Working?

    Has the Realm ever divided a previous state into several satrapies? Has a Satrapu ever been subdivided?

    Is Lookshy just more Immaculate or has it become a defining trait? Or are they still pretty informal outside of anathema matters?

    ...I feel like you know the amount of hype you generated from that particular tidbit. Will we be hearing about the awesome deeds of the bulk of the house founders?...

    That is a relief to here! My thanks again for being such a sport about all of our questions!

    I am going to be greedy and ask if there is any benefit tied to lineage? (Like a bonus if a manse or artifact have been in your family for millennia or something of that sort)

    On a more fluffy note. Do you see more complete bloodlines getting destroyed or surviving the death of the shogunate, or do you see most modern DBs being descended from a bunch of sole-survivors and refugees?...

    I might as well take this opportunity to ask after something that has Been bugging me since I got into 3rd.

    I feel like in as part of the never-ending struggle to balance how powerful a DB should be their 'blooded' part has sort of been marginalized in favor of the 'dragon' component.

    I wanted to ask if you feel that DB still have a place left both fluff and mechanically for their role as the most numerous exalt? Unless I misunderstood what has been presented so far Breeding is out and so are most of the mechanical benefits of working together with other DBs. Typically...

    I had a question regarding airship speeds in 3ed. This applies to both naval mobility and the time estimations used for merchant vessels to calculate travel. Are airships still usually as slow as they were in 2ed? Or can they actually surpass the speed of our own aircraft in some cases this time?

    I take it that all the Arms warstriders will fall into that 25-30ft range? Or are any of them irregular in terms of height?...

    So another question about the Warstriders in Arms. A while back Vance said that warstriders could get to gundam size (which average out around 60ft barring some of the more extreme models), so are there any irregularly tall Warstrider among the seven?

    Also what is the upper limit to how tall you guys feel a Warstrider should be? Evas hit 80m for example.

    -Radiant Nova Phoenix
    -Emerald Chevalier
    -Karvara, the Walking Devil-Tower
    -Crusading Spear of the Dephs

    Can you tell us the name of the remaining Warstrider? Also could you tell us which two are the Royal?...

    For the sake of my (totally not all-consuming) curiosity. How many Warstrider made it past the cut? Can you tell us their names and where they fall on the Noble/Royal divide?

    It's not like I hunger for info on Warstriders or anything...

    Interesting, now I could not help but notice that you said most. Is it entirely within reason for some unusual artifacts to feature evocations that have nothing to do with combat?

    Furthermore do vehicles have a capability for evocations?

    Of course anything is possible but I mean more if you feel that it is possible given the fluff you have written for framing evocations?...

    I might have read this wrong but it seemed to me that you are implying non-combat artifacts have combat-orientated evocations by default.

    So by communing with my ancient family teapot I am more likely to awaken it's desire to commit unspeakable acts of savagery than unlock the recipe for the Scared Hatred-Eating Sage Tea?...
