  • You also could use a moonsilver powerbow, unless you worry that's too large for a cat to use. You'd need to have a high strength to get as good damage, but you needed a good strength for Last Warrior's Unity, gain access to attack-boosting strength charms, avoid the slow tag, etc.

    I've seen two home-brews of it, one a working and one a spell. Working is in http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...ed-fan-project, spell is in http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...-third-edition....

  • Judging Sacred Hunt charms by how easy they are to give someone your form
    Heart-Drinking Allure: Very easy to give your form to someone you have a major+ tie of love or lust towards, you may not want to form such a tie just to give someone your form.
    Debt of Borrowed Skin: Straight-forwardly bargaining for a shape. Sets a minimum price of Serious or Life-Defining task, and needs to be a service rather than a good.
    Nest-Raiding Slyness: Forming a negative intimacy as part of your sale is probably bad for business
    Blood-Geas Binding: Explicitly disallows making oaths for...

    If you use Claws of the Silver Moon in an animal form to boost a natural weapon where the animal's dice pool is less than yours, does the accuracy boost from the Claws replace (well, they're both +1) or add to the normal accuracy of using a natural weapon with your own pool?
    Same question for Overwhelming, though I'm guessing that replaces since a hippo with overwhelming 10 would be somewhat excessive.

  • I'm imagining a passive-aggressive Lunar who, when the Solar does something they don't like, reverses what they normally do to support a change. They do their best to get police to overlook lawbreakers, citizens to not take it seriously, deliberately hide evidence from the Solar instead of bringing things to their attentions, etc. Then this leading to an increasingly dysfunctional society as the formal, top-down mechanisms of power have one goal and the informal, bottom-up ones have another, and this won't be resolved as long as the exalts are making it be this way....

    When choosing a shaping ritual from Celestial Circle Sorcery (the charm, that is), how much of a story justification must there be? It seems like there's a pair of bounds between "you've never met Raksi in your life" and "The charm didn't give you the shaping ritual, you've earned Tutored by Raksi on your own" (or whatever other initiation you wanted).

    If you miss with the counterattacks generated by Laughing Monster Form, do you lose the normal initiative for missing with a decisive attack?

    Most excessive version:
    Join Battle
    Perception 5, Awareness 5, Specialty, Fast Reflexes, 1-point stunt
    Full Excellency (10m), 1wp, Unwavering Predator’s Eye with surcharge (3m), Wolf’s Eye Advantage (2m), Red Visions Realized (2m, 1wp)
    24 dice, 1 success, double 9s, reroll 1s, roll twice and take the higher
    If you win, gain 1wp

    This averages 17 successes, plus however much 3

    Reflexive
    Sense-Sharpening Change (4m)
    Sinuous Striking Grace (3m, act 5i higher)
    Hunter’s Eye Precision (2m, 1i, 1wp)

    Attack...

    Build: First Strike
    Strategy: Spend a ton of motes on join battle. Use Hunter’s Eye Precision+Birds-Fall-From-Flock Targetting to reflexively aim at all enemies. Spend a ton of motes to make a very deadly attack threatening everybody. Hit and critically injure, maybe poisoning+needling whoever didn’t invest enough in their defense, or be happy your enemies spent all their motes.

    Merits
    Fast reflexes helps win join battle
    An artifact weapon (preferably a bow)
    Artifact armor won’t go wrong

    Caste: Any, No-Moon...

    Craft 5, Attribute 5, Specialty, full excellency, 1-point stunt, willpower, Flawless Handiwork Method, and Supreme Masterwork focus combine to give around 99.56% chance of success.
    I say around because I calculated as if Flawless Handiwork Method rerolled 1s, not 10s.
    If you only need 1 artifact/story, Bright-Forging Prana better than Supreme Masterwork Focus.

  • Also, 2 free successes on attacks against crashed enemies.

    Moose is also pretty good - 17 damage, 16 soak, can add extra successes to damage on decisive attacks, can make reflexive grapples after decisive attacks. How does that work, actually? Wouldn't you almost never make the initiative roll, and crash yourself if you did?

    Walrus isn't bad - 14 damage, 10 soak, can add extra successes to damage on decisive attacks, ignore 4 points of soak, -1 to enemies overwhelming, +2 evasion underwater.

    Does the minuscule size merit prevent you from dealing decisive damage with any attacks, or is it just the natural attacks an animal has that are called out as not dealing decisive damage?
    In particular, can a sorcerer in minuscule size deal decisive damage with spells to normal size creatures, but also can Last Warrior's Unity enable dealing decisive damage?
    If not, can they use spells like Thunder Wolf's Howl and Cantata of Empty Voices to deal damage without using decisive attacks?

    Raksi knows the rituals of Raksi's Tutelage, and presumably no other shaping rituals....

  • I'd worry that the stats are kind of poor. You wouldn't want to spend the rest of the fight as a swan, while you might as a boartusk crocodile.

    AutXautY's Animal Analysis

    This is might attempt to look through the animals in the corebook and lunars book, and try to figure out how good they are for shapeshifting.
    Sorry if my standards for a given term, or how I describe, shift in the middle of the list.

    Angler-Lizard
    Poor combat stats. No merits or special attacks, except for what is probably the only withdraw-boosting special attack.
    Use If: Unless you desperately want to be an angler-lizard, do not turn into an angler-lizard.

    Armored Terror
    Aquatic, Legendary Size
    Very good damage and soak, decent attack...

    I am assuming that the cap remains at 5. The boost is somewhat from Silver Crucible Refinement giving +essence dice, and the jumps are from Unbound Demiurge's Dream giving an extra roll...

    I think that was because it lost formatting copying it, I've replaced that with dashes. Does that help?...

    Build: Lunar Defensive Charms+Crane Style.
    Strategy: Enter crane stance. Use Ferocious Guardian Beast Stance to protect your allies. Use all your other charms to not die. Counter attack bunch.

    Merits
    Artifact 4 (Moonsilver Silken Armor), Artifact 3 (Moonsilver Hook Swords). Neither of these are necessary, though the extra soak is very useful for you.
    Any of the mutations that Hybrid Body Transformation gives you can instead be achieved with permanent mutations if you don’t need to be sneaky

    Caste: Any, probably Full Moon...

    I am very excited about witch-beast ascendancy, and this inspires questions:
    Does the sorcery pool get used for all sorcery related rolls, or just shape sorcery? (eg. attacking with Death of Obsidian Butterflies, Binding Demons, etc)
    If a spell refers to an attribute or ability, what does the familiar use? (Difficulty of Thunder Wolf's Howl)
    If a spell gives a weapon, can a familiar attack with it, and with what stats? (Blood Lash, Wood Dragon's Claw)
    Does the familiar get a sorcerous initiation+shaping ritual? Can they get merits from the ritual?
    For control spells...

    Totemic Charms Sorting

    Totemic charms seem like they'd make character creation a bit more complicated, so I made this:
    I tried to sort through all the totemic charms, and list them by their secondary attribute (the attribute which you can take them if you meet the condition)
    In this list, they are secondarily listed by their primary attribute, and then by their requirement. Instead of listing all charms, I've given a summary of the available charms, which are mostly in a coherent tree for each attribute/attribute/condition trio
