    I'd also like to second (or third, or fourth) how cool it is to see the elements really playing a part in these DB charms. It's a very nice touch. I'd also, also like to second (or third, or etc.) how glad I am to see more openness in the development here. It's really encouraging and fun to see these design previews, and also to see criticism taken gracefully. While this particularly preview didn't do as much to get my imagination as I hoped, there are some really cool and solid effects in there (even Deep-Listening Palm is a good effect, I just think it's overpriced at 5m), and I fully expect...

On the one hand, minus a few nitpicks, the charms are all pretty clear in what they're supposed to do, and the difference between fluff and crunch is very clear, which is a huge positive. We also see some [Ability] 3, [Essence] 2 charms, which I don't think happened much, if at all, in the Solar charmset, which is a nice design space to hit.

    On the other hand, only a couple of charms really stood out to me as "Yeah, I want to play a character that can do that." And none of the powers that make me think that are Essence 1, and since DBs don't...
