    If I ever get a chance to play another Supernal Thrown character (I probably won't, they're silly), I'll take the Frost-Thorn Knuckles on them. They're fantastically mean, and I eagerly anticipate the look on the Storyteller's face when he or she realizes that wound penalties, Joint-Wounding Attack, and Glacial Beast Claw has reduced an antagonist's Dexterity + Dodge pool to zero.

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure what to make of Ravening Fimbulwinter Approach. It's a neat charm, but it treats the results of a rush roll as a reflexive attack in a way that seems to be unprecedented. Here's...

    Oh, okay. My bad, I misread the question on my first pass.

    I say give it to 'em anyway, but that actually hews closer to a Defining Principle against Slavery than a Defining Tie against Slavers. Someone who despises weakness could hate slavers without sparing an ounce of sympathy for the slaves themselves, but that's splitting hairs....

    Disclaimer: haven't actually read Tomb of Dreams yet.

    That said, absolutely. Expression Bonus should apply to any sort of character development moment that directly taps an intimacy. It doesn't necessarily have to be especially dramatic, but the fact that this is should remove all doubt. Releasing a demon to torment or murder the subject of your Defining Hatred as as expressive as it gets....

    Within the game system, how would you represent a battle between the Tepet Legions and the threat that nearly wiped them out? (If it's still ambiguous at this point--the fiction preview shared about House Tepet pins it on the Bull) I'm considering the mechanics of representing extremely large engagements, and having a hard time figuring out how to make the game flow without computerized assistance. Even a single Realm legion is going to have at least five battle groups. How do you represent the 40-60 aforementioned dragonblooded? As a source of Might for the battlegroups? How many of them roll...

  • Four thousand tiger warriors is an empire-ending directional threat, with Solar Leadership behind them. This isn't just Prasad they're dealing with, it's the Bronze Faction wielding Prasad like a scalpel. If I were running it? They do not know it yet, but at least one of your named NPCs they've grown to trust is a Prasadi spy, and the next big adventure they are called to tackle is going to be cover for their armies suffering massive poisoning and disease, at least. Lure them in with the underground manse-tomb of one of their prior incarnations, perhaps, and throw some assassins into the mix for...

    Is anyone else planning on using the Key to the Dream Palace for training time? Obviously it can't be used for physical attributes, but that won't stop my Dawn from leveraging a perfect opportunity to demonstrate techniques in a setting where her students can't actually get hurt. Paradise is a dojo.

    I'm sorry, I'm afraid I must misunderstand the intent of the artifact, the charm, or the mass combat system. Can someone please help me disentangle this? From my reading, Horizon Endeavor has 23 health levels. The baseline mortal typically has 7. With a Solar captain using Blood and Salt Bondage, the mortals in her crew would have 30 health levels (two Incaps? Is that a thing?). And there are room for up to three hundred of them in the barracks, which comfortably affords two Size 3 battlegroups. Size is added to the magnitude track, so these Size 3 battlegroups would have 31 + 32 + 33 effective...
