    replied to Cup boils over, does this charm see use?
    Ech, yeah I can see the case for it.

    Personally, since CBO’s text specificies that the letter is taking the reader to task for being directionless and pointless, as an ST I’d rule that even though the character may not know what it is they care about, the fact that they still have the intimacy is sufficient to keep their soul present.

    Obviously it’s variable by ST in any case, and generally i’d Favor the player regardless, it’s just that this is such a convoluted and bizarrely cruel way to kill someone.

    I would totally be down with it as an Abyssal charm, and i’d Think it would have prereqs that would assist in creating the final effect, Intimacy degrading and Resolve sapping.

    Edit: turns out Forgotten Blade doesn’t work that way. People still have their Intimacies, they just can’t recognise their body or call them to mind. You could make an argument for it opening up CBO but it seems thin.

    Like yeah, almost any high-essence charm Can be used as the flourish of a convoluted plan, but ideally they could also be useful charms?

    It did also occur to me...

    started a topic Cup boils over, does this charm see use?

    Cup boils over, does this charm see use?

    P 327 core.
    I’m sure this has been asked before but, like in what circumstance would any player or NPC use this charm?
    Short of a CtD-Style Autumn person, what character could be described as having absolutely no Intimacies? How would you even go about deciding that a character’s Intimacies are Unintelligibly Abstruse?

    Is it Just there for STs to dunk on players that try to ignore or game the Intimacy system?

    Even if a (presumably Linguistics Supernal) PC set about systematically eroding all of a character’s Intimacies and actively prevented them from...

  • I have a minor beef with Foe baiting and nimble sidestep, namely that they’re not easy dips at Dex 4, but highly skilled defenders won’t really use them?

    Like, the better your defenders are in EX3, theoretically, the less you’re opening yourself to Decisive attacks, which leaves it up to the ST to escalate attack pools or just have their NPCs job into Decisive attacks that aren’t doing any damage/succeeding on Gambit checks, and have less chance to hit than all the withering attacks that already aren’t hitting?

    It’s just weird to me to make these really kind...

  • I could be reading wrong, but don’t Ichneumon Scourge and Consumptive Worm Hungers explicitly supplement Needle Quill Tech, which doesn’t work with flame weapons? I don’t think they can be applied to Righteous Devil Style.

  • Awesome build. I think you could get away without using Legendary form most of the time, but it’s certainly handy to have available.

    Can I just say that it is Wild that a Lunar in an Ape form is totally unable to use any Martial Arts but HBTing into a Winged Centaur causes no imprediment whatsoever?

  • Crane style benefits a lot from flurrying Defend Other, good synergy with cbwr there.

    replied to [3E] Building a Lintha Character
    For gills, You could take Grotesque with Subtlety.
    The combo itself works for Lintha generally, basically giving you a “Game Face” for Threaten actions without making you stand out like a sore thumb (unless you’d prefer to).

    Plus basically any aquatic aspect that might otherwise be redundant can be folded into the description of your monstrous form.
    I think it’d be a pretty miserly ST that forced you to put points into Gills that are purely decorative, especially if they folded into a different mutation.

    replied to Supernal Ability Help
    One thing worth considering could be splashing three deep into Presence for Empowering shout. Gives you a good basis for being convincing and charismatic, plus a power that could pretty effectively evoke the story being directly used to inspire greatness in others (plus Supernal Empowering Shout is just plain good. 3m for +4 non-charm dice on anyone nearby about to do basically anything)

    There’s a strong argument to be made for the Austrech here.

  • EDIT: my post got chopped up! This is about Divine PredatorStrike, anyway.

    Not a must-buy, but certainly a favorite of mine. I’d be curious how the maths affects it’s value when reroll adders enter the mix.

    Falcon Style catches the eye, both for said rerolls, additional bennies for 10s on attack rolls, and for the sheer potential of a Diminutive flying form (like a fly or a bee, butterfly perhaps) and Quicksilver second face combining with Swift Talon Strike.

    Now That’s how you initiate combat.
