    Sea's Verdict's first evocation, From the Depths, interacts with the Aura mechanic. I didn't think artifacts were allowed to do that, so is that a typo, or did I misunderstand things?

  • In the Ask the Devs thread, Vance specifies that charms like Dipping Swallow Defense only ignore penalties, they don't remove them, so charms like Ferocious Jab still get the benefits.

    Does that mean that charms which let you stand on walls for an entire scene are bad play space or just that they're not appropriate for Solars and DBs, either thematically or from a power angle?...

    When casting Beckoning That Which Stirs the Sky, do other people see the giant spider legs come out of the clouds and reshape the weather?

    If you get enough successes on the roll, can you create highly specific weather, like reshaping clouds to do sky writing?

  • A couple of the artifacts have upgrade charms that basically reskin existing DB charms with a new Element. Maybe a set of White Jade Smashfists that do sand-bending are in order?...

  • Fair enough. As long as I can say that the heirloom bonus of artifacts I create is more substantial, I'll get over my disappointment, because the artifacts in the book are still very cool. Calumny was someone answering my desire for an Ultimately Useful Tube with evocations, Perdurant Vault is several kinds of cool, I love the backstories on Daring Venture and Sea's Verdict (and the way it crumbles and everything), and everything else was pretty awesome....

  • I honestly wish she'd had someone loving she could trust to help her avoid becoming paranoid all those years ago. Granted, her older brother WAS trying to kill her and I'm not sure she'd have made it to where she is now WITHOUT becoming paranoid, but..... It just kind of hurts to know that she always has this wall up and there's a part of her that's always searching the area for danger, because she won't ever let herself get hurt or be helpless ever again.

    I kinda wish she and V'Neef could reconcile, because I could imagine that V'Neef might be able to be that person....

  • I was thinking about it and I think I figured out why the Heirloom bonus generally felt underwhelming to me. Granted, I was expecting something like the weapon either only working for scions of a given house or that it would have a unique higher essence evocation that only unlocked for that house or something like that, but "You automatically unlock the first evocation free if you're of the blood-line I like" is actually pretty nice. However, there are enough artifacts that already grant any resonant wielder their first Evocation for free, that it doesn't really feel particularly special...

  • I like it. Very nice to have a narrative through line that lets us see lots of things.

    I was surprised when we had a random monk in front of the MA chapter, given that River was a Sig. Finding out that she was an apostate and married was a fun surprise....

  • I’ll admit, I kinda expected a bit more from the Heirloom aspect than “First Evocation gets a minor bonus if wielded by a Scion of House X.” Not that I dislike the artifacts, mind you, but I was looking forward to some kind of “this can only be wielded by a Chosen One, all others be smote by lightning” type stuff or something of that caliber.

  • I think Kickstarter assumes that you’ll be paying by credit card, so you should have a month to pay that off after they charge you.

    Also, I’m not sure how they handle it if you pledge and your credit card or whatever doesn’t have sufficient funds, but I think there’s a grace period of a few days before they cancel your pledge. They probably say on the KS site.

    Alternately, if you can scrape up 5$, you’ll be in the Kickstarter and you’ll be able to add more items via Backerkit later. And they shouldn’t start doing that for a couple weeks, maybe a month.

    Will the Realm address how difficult it is for a shapeshifting guerrilla warfare expert or impersonator to infiltrate the Blessed Isle and make trouble? How about for the Satrapies?

    I mean, given the stuff Iselsi and Sesus have gotten up to, it must be possible for Lunars to get in there and cause problems, but it also feels like a nation that has been fighting a war led by shapeshifting boogeymen for over seven centuries would have set some defenses in place to keep them out.

    There aren't any "create a poison arrow" charms in DB Archery. Is that deliberate or is that ok design space to explore?

  • Very exciting.

    Will there be any advice for how to judge if a particular DB is "worthy" of a temple's blessing?

    How about any advice as regards the security of the temples, in case a PC group wanted to try for an illicit pilgrimage?...

    I'm curious about Feng-Yi. Are we likely to get any further info about this place in either the Realm book or the Lunars book? If not, are you likely to discuss it or is it intentionally being left mysterious?

    So, did the Caul actually vanish or sink or anything for a long period of time, or was the route to get there just lost and then rediscovered as sometimes happens?

    At the General of the Maelstrom Legion level, we get to name an NPC. Does that mean we just submit the name and then you use it for a random character? Or do we get to submit some details as well? If we do get to submit any details, are there any particular restrictions (like, "No, you are NOT allowed to name V'Neef's eldest biological daughter")?
