  • Sure, this is fair. I'm just registering it as a "Hm" from the little we know so far - the big picture may change any number of things.

    Again, to reiterate, these look like fun!...

  • Right, I don't think he's a useful point of comparison. I do think "mortal with an eight-die pool" is one, and that guy would still be pretty tough to get a +5 success advantage against. (AnyDice suggests that even if you're throwing 15 dice around yourself, you have a <40% chance of the Charm firing.)

    I'm not calling it impossible or useless - just, if I had a player purchasing this, I might want to forewarn them that it's going to be impressive when it fires, but they shouldn't count on that happening.


    I'm having trouble parsing this - can you try...

  • I mean, I think we can safely take Solar Sun Tzu off the table here. You don't just need to roll five successes - you need to roll five more successes than the other guy rolled. Unless DB pools are a lot bigger than they were in 2e, that's going to be uncommon even against competent mortal opposition....

  • For comparison's sake, 2e had only about twice that many DB Charms total (about 264, if my tally is accurate). That's gonna be a lot of new Charms.

    These are fun! I'm having trouble following some of the thematic associations that go from "Wood-Aspected Elemental soldier" to Mamoru Chiba, but I can think of so many character concepts that would use that Charm I almost don't care.

    Tempest-Ruling Commander is really cool, but am I reading right that you'd have to beat the opposing commander's roll by five successes to get any utility out of it? That seems like...

    Wasn't there a document compiling all these answers? Does anyone have a link to that?

    (Apologies as this is not directly a dev question.)

    I'd rather not clog the thread by relitigating exact percentages and digging out the various models folks have constructed. If "a substantial number live to old age" would avoid an argument, consider the claim so modified; everything else still follows, and I'd still be very interested in the answer....

    So a long running bugaboo for me has been the... oddness, let's say, of the Dragon-Blooded population numbers in books past. Previous books have asserted: that most Dragon-Blooded live to old age; that Dragon-Blooded face enormous social pressure to have multiple children; that the children of Dragon-Blooded Exalting as Dragon-Blooded is relatively common; and indeed that there are several hundred academy-aged DBs in any given year.

    They also assert a relatively-stable DB population for the past few hundred years. All the attempts I've made to keep that birth rate (100+ per year,...
