    Gotta admit it took me a bit to read the capstone correctly (Voice of the Apocalypse). But yeah, damn. This thing sounds absolutely horrifying, I love it....

    As somebody whose favorite splat is, unequivocally, Solars, this makes me very happy. I want those clashes to be meaningful and memorable. ...

    Neeeeeato. Though, that reminds me--something that I'd always found a bit odd about that picture was that it had two identical warstriders in it....

    Do warstriders in Ex3 still have their own specific list of equipment and weaponry, or is a warstrider's panoply always a unique and inextricable part of the god-golems that wield them?

    Judging by the names of the Evocations revealed, it seems pretty darn safe to say that All-Conquering Colossus is all about getting all up in the foe's face and pounding them with titanic golden fists, whereas Cathedral of Sublime Annihilation is more of a long-ranged combatant that leaves the area around its targets a smoldering ruin after combat concludes.

    Oho, good to know. So yeah, even if Jade is technically five magical materials, most characters really aren't going to get five bangs for their buck from it. XD...

    Well, the idea that's been brought up backthread is that the beauty of Jade (and thus of DBs being Resonant with it) is that it's not one magical material, it's five. Each color of Jade has its own full set of Evocation themes, as deep as the non-Jade MMs. This is certainly true, but what I'm opining here is that resonance with Jade alone isn't sufficient to convey the scale of Dragon-Blooded capacity for Evocation mastery.

    It is though, just my personal opinion. If well, one I'm willing to defend. XD...

    Yeah, if nothing else, it's a very powerful weapon that you can use to kill your foes even without going after Evocations, and you don't have that damned attunement penalty you used to on top of that. But for those who ARE dipping into Evocations, well...you can sort of turn that around and point out that to reeeally get the most out of Jade's theoretical versatility in general you *have* to have an artifact containing all five different colors of it. Which I don't think most DBs are going to do, precisely because not every character in the game world is mechanics omniscient.

    Right, but well, see my comment about how most of the time (I freely admit not all the time though; Gigaton's got a great idea) you're likely to see a DB wielding but a single artifact weapon that probably won't have too many different color combinations. Doing it the new way makes the statements in the corebook have a little bit more...hm, practical weight, I think. Just my opinion, though. ^_^ We'll see what comes of the final....

    Well, at least in this run at things Immaculates are definitely not going to have a different form of chargen from regular Dragon-Blooded. I still personally feel the newly given version of the rules reflects the 3e core better (as even as versatile as jade can be, you're not immensely likely to wield five swords at once), but I do understand your point of view as well. ...

    Perhaps becoming outright Resonant will be earned via that method? ...

    That's all true, but I feel like the current setup better reflects the statements in the 3e core that the Dragon-Blooded do have an excellent general capability to utilize Evocations....

    Is a brand-new group of Dragon-Blooded iconic characters being planned for What Fire Has Wrought, just as the corebook brought us a new Solar iconic circle?

    Another little detail about Gnomon that I love is that it's really a wooden staff (albeit wood from a celestial peach tree) that's had starmetal wire bound into it. Really is a good example of how starmetal artifact weapons tend to have a minimalist design.

    Gnomon is goddamned epic. ...I love that the capstone literally produces a peach of immortality. And it's an Artifact 4, no less!

    That's fair. Wouldn't be too hard for an ST to extrapolate base artifact weapon stats for them if they wanted to include 'em, at least....

    Speaking of, will Arms of the Chosen see the return of the God-Kicking Boot?

    Good to know! It literally just hit me then that I didn't recall them being mentioned in the 3e core and wondered what their disposition would be. XD...
