    1.) Ruby ... doesn't strike me as a lunar... at least not from a build stand point. I mean story wise yes she could exalt as anything, but her extant build is probably more in line with Solars. ... Which actually makes her exalting as a Lunar fairly interesting. Because up till this point she's been highly focused on abilities/skills over any particular attribute. Although I'd wager she's got pretty decent Dexterity, Intelligence, and Perception.

    2.) For martial arts regarding guns. Well the shot gun style, or maybe shot-gun and pistol style should emphasize the close and short range...

    This one.

    I mean I think it might be some sort of sort hand for representing rwby characters in creation, maybe. The third bit seems like it would make sense if I had some context but I'm not sure....

    I'm sorry... What?

    I have no idea what you're trying to say here Sunder.

    1.) What's SPSitV short for?

    2.) NEED TO? probably not, it'd be perfectly possible to emulate most characters with various builds and exalt types. Just like it would be theoretically possible to emulate a magi-tech robot character by playing a twilight exalted who replaces most of his body with artifact prosthetics and lays down endless evocations to learn on them that let him do all sorts of screwy anime robot stuff, but Alchemicals is still a splat. Besides which the world itself probably rates a few tweaks, like a mod to the crafting system for remnant tech, new weapon types. Dust...

    I don't think that'd work anyway. I mean it wasn't penny's emotions or disobedience that caused problems. It was basically a highly planned out and thoroughly controlled assassination plan that struck while Pyrrha was an emotional wreck.

    There's no impetus to make her a zombie from ironwood's end.

    If that did happen it would likely be from the council's side since they have to put up the cash for this they'd expect to get more than a super hunter out of this. THey'd want a loyal super hunter.

    Which is of course missing the point but frankly I'd not be surprised...

    I'm going to be honest... I had no idea Blake was wearing a ribbon on her ears the first time I watched through volume 1, not until she took it off in front of RW-Y anyway.

    I'm hoping it's the last volume we see cinder in. Preferably because Ruby takes her head off, and Emerald's too.

    Yes, I'm still sore about Penny.

    Anyway, I'm guessing we'll see more Tyrian and the rest of Salem's lackeys actually do something. I mean that's the real question isn't it. What are they doing for her, and why?

  • I very much want this.

    The shenanigans you could get up to with this would be AMAZING!

    Like maybe you could have a charm that lets you break off a soul with a bit of essence and let it act like a spy drone or something.

    Not to mention you could use them with lunar crafting charms to make cool vehicles and artifacts out of things you've hunted.

    Abyssals abuse souls for power, Alchemicals have a fancy built in soul cage, I doubt consider those the same at all. I mean if anything this could be more reasonably compared to aspects of Infernal exaltation,...

    Isn't one of the workings examples a telepathic bond? Would that help?

  • Well this is more about figuring out what would be good guidelines for a specific level, Solar Ambition 3.

    So far the most useful idea has been that it should have a specific and possibly narrow theme, thank you Isator Levi....

  • Under sorcerous workings, in the paragraph about solar ambition three workings, it says you could create a being of singular nature and considerable power.

    What does that mean?

    I mean presumably it doesn't let you create an exalted or a primordial... right?

    Does singular nature mean you make one creature, or that the creature is inherently unique and cannot be made to breed more of it's kind? Both?

    How much is considerable power? I mean if an ambition one working should be able to mimic a normal spell of the circle, and summon third circle demon...

  • Well...

    What about binding elementals to the artifacts to attune them and then the elemental can act as the gatekeeper for using artifact. They can even learn the evocations and allow access to them for higher tier stuff....

  • In 3e?

    The 2-dot artifacts that apply to their skills and methods. Most sorcerers would make their first artifact be something that makes them better a being sorcerers. One that gives them a +1 die to gather motes, another for +1 die on workings, another for +1 die on occult lore, although since they'd be a crafter and a sorcerer their very first project might also be something that gives them a +1 die on crafting certain kinds of items, like a minorly enchanted forge hammer, or maybe a whole lightly enchanted workshop, or tool kit.

    I mean isn't that what 2-dot artifacts...

  • If Getimians are those who have been cheated by some celestial retcon, maybe knowledge of what they've been denied is the alternate gate, and different things lost to the retcon fuel their powers in various ways. So using the merit system you can create lost fates, a lost fate of wealth, love, longevity/vitality, great works, etc. It'd be pretty similar to the fabulists.

    Maybe even create a mortal persona based on what you would have been if you hadn't been dicked over and their merit dots gate various charm trees?

  • Yeah something like this is much cleaner, I'm not sure what you're asking in regards to compassion.

    Clophiroth What about will power as a secondary gate since fighting fate generally requires a level of bull-headedness? No... Mono-stat gates are probably bad for character spectrum. How about derived stats? Guile, Soak, Join Battle? With the caveat that gear/charms/merits/etc. don't work, just the basic inherent skill-attribute equation results?...

  • This is for E3 right?

    The merit system is interesting, but I don't like the direct mechanical benefits of the merits themselves. They seem overly complicated, and not really on par with what a five dot merit can do. I'd suggest breaking them up into merit chains. -or- Making them simpler (resolve Bonus, or maybe a vice/virtue specialty in one associated skill per dot of the merit, or maybe the supernatural once a story effect but instead of being essence powered the effect is boosted base don how many dots you have in the merit).
