    Yeah, I'm not sure what I was talking about. That's not the problem. The problem is that a spear on it's own needs about nine times the velocity of a human/spear system to achieve equivalent kinetic energy. The average person is capable of putting much more force behind a blow when they're holding a spear than they are throwing it....

    Yeah, but that energy is spent moving the thing through the air. You can't do that and chop/pierce.

    The thing here is that there's a difference between regular down-and-dirty combat and gauru-induced down-and-dirty combat. In the former there is a chance the npc could win. In the latter, that being the case means you shouldn't be using it at all.

    In the Gauru-form case, it more "this fight will end with your enemies in pieces or running for their life. Roll to find out which."

    If the enemy's goal isn't "run the fuck away" then gauru form should just make them lose their ability modifier to defense....

    The idea is probably that chopping or piercing attacks require one's weight be behind the blow or something....

    Whack a concealable tag on a knife. Call it a shiv. They're simplistic and flexible for a reason....

    Actually, for that matter what is the plan for warstrider-scale weapons? They don't exactly fit the light/medium/heavy paradigm....

    Demonic Pacts. Either Inferno or Descent would work. For Descent you can get retroactively made into an Offspring and that comes with embeds and other supernatural merits....

    I like how Dragon-blooded are now neutral to all the non-jade materials - except soulsteel. Seems we're keeping their whole "strongly tied to creation" thing that shut them off from necromancy last edition.

    Wonder if the old "dragons of a different colour" will trade in that soulsteel dissonance for a different one, if they end up being a thing....

    replied to Voltron as a Five-Jade Warstrider: How Do?
    Now, see, I think the configuration used in Legendary Defender (with white replacing yellow) works fine. Black jade's purview includes flexibility and communication with spirits. What better to harmonise five separate artifacts into a coherent whole? Leave the Earth Lion on the ground where it can interface with its element better.

    I mean, I can see an argument for switching the green and blue lions, but if we want this thing to fly maybe having air on the bottom to help lift it works as well. And we can maybe say the black lion has blue jade wings or something.

    It's a progressive thing. A century or two before, 13th gen would probably have been "absolutely no embrace ever" and 12th gens would be the ones that were commonly thin blooded and all that. At the point Dark Ages is set, the 14 generation is just on the verge of becoming a thing, and probably can't embrace themselves. There's no flaw in the 20th Anniversary edition for playing one at all....
