    replied to Aura charms!
    Something to remember about Blossom Hides Thorns by the way, is that we're missing Dance of Flashing Swords to gauge its effective power properly, since the latter has a willpower cost and the former allows you to waive it. The original DoFS disguised an ongoing battle as a performance act, and it looks like it does something different. But "disguising the sneak attack as part of the performance" seems contingent on BHT, so perhaps it does roughly the same but isn't compatible with sneak attacks by itself?

    I'm just throwing suppositions at thin air because I find it quite...

    I really dig Mela's Hungry Jaws and Earth Bears Witness, though the latter more flavor-wise and in respect to the elemental variations. Elemental Aura looks like a neat mechanic to help distinguish DBs in feel and pace their access to power that Solars can bring to bear more casually.

    I'm very curious about how you get into Elemental Aura and if it offers any kind of intrinsic benefits, but it's a cool concept already! Notable that Earth Bears Witness has repurchase unlock both elemental variants though previously it was said it would be 3xp for each variation in charms with multiple...

  • I'm pretty sure that hiding anything supernatural from ever being perceived by anything else at all is not in the spirit of Supernal Veil, however. I mean, it seems really weird to me if that's what it's supposed to do.

    Rules As Written the wording is ambiguous, but even it implies something different. It veils the subject from detection, not perception, and the following paragraph elaborates with the example of a supernatural ability which can instinctively detect phenomena like magic, and distinguishes active from passive abilities. Which is... strongly indicative of the intent...

  • Actually, David Hill previously talked about Loyalists as a Seeming* defined by the choice to serve the True Fae as a method of escape. I don't know if the material still holds in the current version, but it made sense at the time.

    *An uncounted one that was not considered a standard choice for PCs, mind. And still required a choice, so it didn't exclude the possibility of loyalists without Seeming. They could presumably be changeling antagonists serving a Gentry who just didn't get a say in the matter.

  • Your description of her mercurial nature has suggested insanity (as we can understand it) by implication, if not in so few words.



    I think that's only a problem if one can't reconcile the position of the Unconquered Sun in staying out of the internal problems of the world he and his fellows gave to the Exalted to safekeep, with exceptional acts and souls getting his attention and leading him to bestow his grace upon individuals who can do something about it*. Which is entirely consistent with the sentiment he expresses to his Zeniths, that righteousness is theirs to grasp...

  • We are straight-faced arguing the point because saying Luna is everything and insanely random means she's nothing, and the setting and her inspirations have never suggested it to the extent you're claiming. Luna has a character. She has allegiances and facets that anchor her, even though she makes inscrutable decisions and acts in fickle ways. She is protean and mysterious, a terrifying bestial witch-goddess, but that doesn't make her impossible to pin down or understand to an extent. In fact, big elements of her inspiration and themes as the moon go through consistent cycles. The phases of the...

  • That seems like an unflattering and restrictive take on Luna, honestly. Reducing all that she does through the lenses of "she must be chaotic and insane and incomprehensible" does not do any favors to her complexity. It's a reductive perspective that does exactly what you're accusing the alternative of: making her one-dimensional in the service of an arbitrary premise that doesn't consider the nuance of things.

    And Luna exalts people. All the Incarnae do. The Lunars are her Chosen, the same way as the Solars are the Chosen of the Unconquered Sun and the Sidereals are the...

  • Taking her title of Fickle Lady to reflect in her behavior towards her Chosen like that honestly seems too superficial, and does not necessarily work to make things more interesting, yeah. I was going to mention how it is compelling and distinct that she has a unique relationship with each and every one of her chosen in personally attending their exaltations, but Leet beat me to it.

    The comic's been pretty crazy lately with the menacing and eerie appearance of the pit of the devils and the Heretics' Court. I've heard the sentiment the descent there could be inspiration for the Labyrinth.

    And Allison asswhoppin' likely incoming, but I'm very curious to see how the council will respond.

  • Sekhem is a bit more complicated than Vitae, since it can be described as the essential resonance of all life and its memories, with everything that implies.
