    replied to Ask Neall
    So, I just read a Tumblr post noting that several of the Knights of the Round Table had crazy powers. For instance, Sir Marrock may have been a werewolf, Sir Kay supposedly being able to grow to a giant, and Sir Gawain drawing strength from the sun and being three times as strong at noon as he was at daybreak.

    My question is... Neall, you gonna be digging that deep for your planned Arthurian expansion? Because if so I've planned a game wherein the PCs are the Knights reborn.

    Gonna echo Darmani here. Jack DOES inspire people... But that's kind of incidental. He never aimed to become an icon or inspire the masses. He doesn't often give rousing speeches or deliberately set himself up as a leader. Now he certainly HAS Favored Presence (such as in Season 1 where he convinced the fishmen to let him take a go at fighting off Aku, with that "Trust in me as I once trusted you" line) but look at the first episode.

    Pretty much ALL of Jack's specializations map to the Dawn abilities. He's not JUST a master Swordsman, but he's also trained in Shaolin kung...

    True. With Solars it notes that Peripheral fills before Personal. Since instead, Getimians have Yin and Yang pools, will they refill at different rates? Does Yin refill first? Yang? Do they alternate? Do you decide when you Respire more Essence whether to top off Yin or Yang? I have many more questions now....

    replied to Aura charms!
    I'm filled with cautious optimism from the previewed charms, especially Mela's Hungry Jaws. Because Solars, to my knowledge, don't have a Stealth charm that lets them suck the breath from the lungs of everyone in one room. I don't mind if the DBs on a sheer numerical breakdown level don't get as much bang for their buck as Solars... But I don't want to feel like a chump for playing a DB. I want a DB to feel like a very strong and very capable being, because they damn well are....

    I remember Vance noting that he finds this one of the most compelling aspects of the Immaculate Philosophy. On one hand, yes, it's a lie made up by the Sidereals to help control Creation and keep their Dragon-Blooded allies in power. On the other hand, it does do a great deal of good for many of the people in Creation, helps keep the spirits from abusing mortals, and there are countless followers who use them as a way to bring themselves peace and to improve themselves.

    Which... Shit yeah, there's a LOT of story exploration you can do with that....

    You'd be surprised what the idea of "Hey guys what if the party had like a THEME?" can do for the right players. Not saying it'd be universal, but several players I know would be more than willing to go along with something like that.

    Edit: To clarify, some friends of mine and I came up with an idea for at least three different PCs who all used Righteous Devil Style....

    Follow-up question: Will there be MORE to the Ex3 Ebon Dragon than just "Likes Doomed Things"? Not saying that's not a nice tidbit, but that's quite literally the ONLY thing I see people mention when they talk about the Dragon's 1E writeup....

    Okay, for serious... I'm not sure whether this is a serious "Na I won't put in White Veil", or if you're doing the cheeky "Well the White Veil Style doesn't exist because there's no White Veil Society and thus no Martial Art associated with it " meme....

    Hey, what works at your table works. And as I said earlier, for me? Someone saying "Yeah I just don't like the look of stupidly big swords" is more than enough reason for me. As for me... I could see Ragnell being a Grand Daiklave, sure. It's a bit on the small side for what I'd consider a Grand Daiklave, but it sure as heck ain't no Shortklave....

    My understanding of the theory was that infusing the weapon with your essence made it basically part of you, and your own essence helps lift it.

    I've heard that apparently some D&D groups would spend time arguing that D&D's gold-based coinage is unsustainable and unrealistic... In a game where Wizards can fling fireballs, Gods are very real and grant magic to their followers, and where literal dragons fly and breathe fire, acid, lightning, or freezing cold.

    I guess some people just get stuck on the weirdest things.

    But really, it's not something I ever questioned, because this is how my thought process went.

    "These massive weapons are heavy and sharp, and mortal hands can barely lift...

    See this is why I don't think too hard about the real-world physics of playing a divinely empowered Solar Hero. Reality in my experience makes for a rather shitty game....

    Okay I swear there was another "Are oversized weapons practical" thread and SOMEONE brought up their LARPing/Boffer experience to say "Well if you can get the sword light enough to actually handle it's HELLA practical", let me see if I can-

    Ah-ha! It was Wise Old Guru posting here!

    In my mind the overall vastness of the artifact weapon can vary depending on its class.

    Like, a shortklave is pretty much standard-tier sword, just made of magical material.

    Medium weapons like daiklaves and non-grand weapons, those might be a BIT bigger than a mortal weapon in its class, but in the same ballpark.

    Now in my mind, if you're calling your weapon a Grand Whatever, then it's big. Maybe not quite as big as the mega-ax that Jen drew, but big. (Well the hammer probably is acceptable)

    Also, of the weapons shown... I think my favorites...

    replied to Counting Dumb Numbers
    Shame you didn't seem to spot some of the Charm Rules, because I can answer these questions instantly.

    1. All charms are declared before the dice are thrown, with the possible exception of charms that let you reroll and specifically say "This charm may be declared after a roll".
    2. Double 7s is an absurdly great thing to have, since if you check the keywords you'll note that this does not in fact just make 7s count as two successes. Double 7s rolls count 7 and up as two successes. This applies to all Doubles rules. So Double 9s - 9 and 10 count for two. Double 8s -...
