    In the corebook, it says Dynasts consider Bears decent fights. So I'd like to see a fight between a dynast and a bear.

    Here it is. I'm pretty sure I made a bunch of rule errors, and played pretty suboptimally from sheer exhaustion with the combat near the end. And suboptimally before that because there were just so many charms involved that I forgot Eyes of the Wood Dragon outright and most of the text on Iron Kettle Body (which got better the more I read it).

    The Twelfth Servant of the Sunrise spends 6m on the awareness excellency, he rolls 14 dice for 9 sux. He starts with 12i.

    Nefvarin Vita spends 5m on Precision Observation Method. She rolls 13 dice for 8

    Update, now that I realized Iron Kettle Body should reduce post soak, ie overwhelming, damage... well it went from the Resistance Supernal losing about 1 or 2 init a round to gaining 0 to 1i. I think it may actually be easier for the DBs if the resistance supernal has a bunch of mortal adds so they can build up initiative to keep him grappled constantly.

    If your using a thing with the smashing tag, I don't see why not? It would just cost an additional 2i....

    I don't see why the smashing tag would be incompatible? You do make an attack roll, and Force of the Mountain doesn't specify that it can't be made with a gambit....

    Earth Dragon has Force of the Mountain, which gives unarmed attacks the smashing tag. Which means you can make a smashing grapple attack....

    Yes. But for DBs it means you can add another die with the excellency. Which is what I meant. Sorry if I was unclear....

    Okay. Thank goodness. I can still keep going. I just need to give them all a specialty in grappling, because let me tell you those two dice matter.

    Goddamnit. Most of the fight I've run so far is ineligible because I forgot you can't do grapple gambits with most weapons. I've seen RL people use swords and staffs and other weapons in grapples, so I just kinda blanked on that bit of rules interactions.

    What about Earth Dragon? It's a martial arts so it can do grappling, and it has smash attacks....

    Yeah. Aegis needs you to either make a decisive attack or spend 8m on offensive charms. So since Restrain stops you from taking actions on your turn, that stops you from doing offensive charms entirely....

    If a guy attacks you through Iron Kettle Body and your soak reduces him to overwhelming damage, does Iron Kettle Body halve the overwhelming damage?

    I would allow a player to buy dots in a martial art they see others using in combat, but charms need to be out of combat.

    I am running the Aegis of Invincible Might fight. It is a slog. But from what I can tell currently, it's swingy and can go either way depending. Also, I built the guy wrong, I didn't realize you can use grappling to turn off Aegis until after I had built him, so I only gave him brawl 3 instead of brawl 5.

    When you roll Init on gambits, do you double 10s?
