  • As an ST one of my players healed a message raven that was going to die of exhaustion. The life of a single bird was not that pivotal to the story; but it set up his compassion and *flex* AWESOMENESS *flex* so I allowed it. I feel it really is a charm that is dependent on the situation, being a charisma+presence thing.

    I think I would allow turning water into wine. And bread into fish. Quell a raging storm. Walk on water (but not during combat). Standard stuff for the exalted ...

    Seconded! Though I feel like I'm being so much more reckless than I ever would with my own character....

    Primary Suggestions:
    Larceny- Criminal Underworld navigation and disguise charms for persona's are awesome.
    Socialise- Higher Guile for lying or bribing officials and finding out secrets.
    Bureaucracy- Know the value of what you're smuggling.
    Integrity- For dealing with high powered clients and resisting temptations.
    Sail- Sea Captain and all.

    Secondary Suggestions:
    Combat Skill- Melee? or archery.
    Dodge or Resistance, based on fighting style; but personally I would choose dodge. A captain wants to avoid the rocks, not survive crashing into...

    The player is paying 24xp (if favoured) to be able to do it, along with 12xp for being a martial artist (if not bought with bonus points at character creation). And 16xp for the resistance ability from 1-5. And they are essence 3 or resistance supernal favoured, which in the new edition is considered pretty powerful.

    52 experience. That is 6 charms they could have had otherwise. That's almost a whole other MA style.
    Let your players have some fun by wearing solid sunlight!...

    Bureaucracy Charms
    Soul Snaring Pitch- Convinces a target of the worth of what you are selling. With the pre-requisties, you could guage how much intimate companionship is worth, then use Soul Snaring pitch to increase the value of a night with YOU specifically.
    Irresistable Salesman- Once the target has either spent a lot of WP refusing to consider how exorbitantly amazing you are (from Soul Snaring pitch) or has accepted the suggestion, you make your bargain action with double 7's.
    Ungoverned Market Awareness- If you want to be the sort of character to sweep into a brothel...

    Other- Educational Spree???? PFFFT time to cause some shenanigans. Go along with it until the opportunity arises to enact 'the plan'. The copper tunnel might lead past a mead hall, right?

  • Eyes turned to glass seems terrifying.
    Could you as the martial artist use stealth to conceal yourself so the puppets are the only actors in the scene? I noticed a specialized defend other charm; i feel there should be a distract as well that does a little more than the base. Because your puppets could distract and give initiative over to other actors, why not have a flavorful charm to boost it?

    I was actually looking at picking up three resistance charms that due to its wording will work with DPC. The Resistance gem is this:



    It says has stats identical, and it says upgrade. It never says 'replace'. Meaning I could wear my light artifact armor and upgrade its stats. My silken shift has now become sunbeams. Awww yeah....

    Oh yeah-he was; I was just agreeing with you, and adding that I feel awesome. 40xp is a big investment afterall. If I bump it to 8 and that is higher than a Raksha?! Daaaaaaamn....

    Having all social attributes maxed out to 5; and her appearance at 7 does feel pretty godly TBH. She is even prettier than she is charming, and she's already once in a century charming....

    Yep, it costs motes to have it committed of course, but for permanent upgrades I think it is worth it for a primarily social character; and my combat style utilises appearance also. Some of the presence charms make it automatic successes instead of non charm dice, if you ever want to burn more motes on certainty.

    I have started down the path of Dreaming Pearl Courtesan Style Martial Arts, and the charm Seven Storms Escape Prana subtracts dice equal to the martial artist’s Appearance from a roll made to oppose one of her disengage attempts, to rush her, or from the control roll of...

    Appearance Enhancers

    My character in 3rd edition currently has Appearance 7 due to the charms Awakened Carnal Demiurge in Presence tree, and the Thousand Courtesan Ways in Performance. I think there is a third in Survival (Miracles, not Core) called Elements sculpted Avatar. Is there anyway using the RAW to get it even higher? I mean as a base amount, not with Scene long like the Black Claw Style.

    replied to Who set the Solars free?
    I really like this idea! It plays with the indian vedic themes that are already present in the core (like with the shinma and the Raksha). It feels like what you are describing is from Mayahana Buddhism (I think).The term Maya has been translated as 'illusion,' but then it does not concern normal illusion. 'Illusion' does not mean that the world is not real and simply a figment of the human imagination. Maya means that the world is not as it seems; the world that one experiences is misleading as far as its true nature is concerned. Māyā not only deceives people about the things they think they...
