    Hide-Hardening practice: I take it that you can use it on each of your familiars, but need to buy it as many times as you wish stacks per familiar? Or am i wrong?

    EDIT: nope. I get how it's supposed to work now. A different question then.

    Lightning-hand sleight.

    How does the delay offered by the charm interact with the actual roll you might be using to cheat without being detected? when is the roll made? does a solar know he will be found out in an hour or so? Does successful cheating also count as attempt per scene for the purpose of decreasing the effect...

    Wyld Shaping: if you "start over from scratch" like some uses of the charm require, does the number of step reset? (in regards to things that happen "from X step onward" and rolls for encounters ) ?

    So now I have two competing answers.

    another one.

    Blood and Salt bondage: a sailor gets a bonus, gets wounded, then the ship is damaged. "the lost hull levels never generate wound penalties". Does that mean that the damage doesn't shift righ, and the extra health levels are now "offline" whether damaged or not, or does it shift to actual health, but gives no penalties, and heals back when the ship is repaired?...

    Well, friends and neighbours of all the fairfolk you chopped up in the random encounters ( I wish there was a charm to reduce those, make fewer "waves" in the Wyld in your work, so to speak)

    And the second part of the question?...

  • Just in time... My player is a Twilight, new to the system, and said she wanted to summon "a knowledge demon" to serve as a source of knowledge/advisor in her healer/wizard career. The closest thing I could find to what I think she imagines is one of those spider-locust scribes from 2ed. (I have since lost the source). Is there anything better to suit that role?

    Now Wyld Shaping. Is it actually useful, or just for flavor? The whole charm branch seems like "build your whole character concept around preparing for one epic battle, that will let you create your own country in the middle of absurdly hostile territory"

    Also, if you "start over from scratch" like some uses of the charm require, does the number of step reset? (in regards to things that happen "from X step onward" and rolls for encounters ) ?

    Well, wind-racing essence infusion will effectively make your horse 7 times faster in travel, and give it extra successes (though not enough to reflect such increase IMO - exalted mechanics is weird like that sometimes) with the added benefit of not knocking it out at the end.

    A related "What's the point" question. Null anima gloves augment your thieving skills... but make your hands glow purple, marking you as a master thief.

    Going down the charms list...

    Supernal Lash discipline. What is the mechanical effect of "doubling speed"? Does it double the speed bonus of the steed?

    Also, what's the point? Unless you're starved for will points, there are clearly superior choices for hastening your steed...

    1 Prophet-uplifting evocation. (main book) . If the solar wants to give his prophet a bigger essence pool, does he just pay it once at casting and it sticks?

    Also, what good is that essence for if the prophet doesn't have enough integrity to get the special prophet charm?

    2 Favor-conferring prana. Since it is only available at E4, does it give one dice to a stat, or two?

    I tried to make a new topic for it, but the forum is derping on me, so I'll ask here:

    1 So, first a small technical question: if you get to phase 4, scrap the land and start over to do specific land... does the encounter risk reset too? (and do you benefit from the charm that lets you start at stage two?) or do you just continue straight where you left off?

    2 And now the main question: What is the idea behind the whole thing? At first sight the whole skill tree looks like "build your whole character around planning a single epic battle that will let you create a...

    When a charm gives you a free excelency, does it light up your anima as if you'd pay for it?
    I thought it didn't, since you don't actually pay the motes... but then I found several charms that made it a point to note that their excelency is "mute".

  • Adding to a discussion from many pages ago: souls in Exalted are already dual by nature, with Hun and P'o. So as far as sorcerous workings go, giving someone a "Jekyll and Hyde" mental disorder should be pretty trivial....

    replied to Forum Game - What Does This Charm Do?
    Bridge-Building Stride
    Requirements: Essence 4, Craft (stonemason or carpenter 5)
    Cost: 4s 1wp
    Type: reflexive
    Prerequisite charms: a craftsman needs no tools.
    Effect: this charm enhances the prerequisite, - allowing the solar to instantly finish a major structure project. As long as he doesn't interrupt his work after paying the initial cost, he can build a structure at the speed of his movement, assembling any pieces of it he can reach, even using it reflexively to stunt in combat (such as building a wall behind himself during a disengage attempt, or building a...

    It may sound silly, but have you considered Kung Fu Panda?
    It's got old masters, ancient prisons, priceless relics and roof-hopping combat action
    The last installment even has a villain from the spirit realm, duel-wielding jade cleavers

    Accord of the Unbreakable Spirit - What is its intended use? It seems to only work for an hour, and the people it protects are busy maintaining it during that time, so outside of being stranded in Wyld and waiting for outside help, what is it good for?
