  • Vance's response to what to do about a mount that shares your initiative was basically "don't worry about it". Stronger stuff probably has a few ways around it. Elephants have natural hardness, for example....

  • Yeah, if you actually compare it with the solar version they get the same at stamina 3-4 as a solar gets at stamina 1-2, and the same at stamina 5 as a solar gets at 3-4....

    Yeah "Don't let players use one NPC as an initiative fountain if you can help it" is a pretty solid rule.

    3 evenly matched guys though? That's fine.

    Ok, expanding from this: charms that expend aura. You previously indicated that if you use a charm that expends aura as part of a cost and use all same-element charms that turn (likely because of how the aura keyword works) it'll return at the end of the turn. If you expend it out of turn, it won't. So this makes it a more significant price on charms that are likely to be used out of turn, right?

    Also, can you expend the aura for charms that don't have the aura keyword that have optional aura expending powers at the same time as a non-balanced off-element charm?...

    It's hard to grow beyond "do basically anything".

    Also, lots of spell, DoOB included, have traits based on the essence of the caster. So they do get stronger with extreme essence.

    But moreover, essence 6+ is the realms of incredible personal power. You wanna buff your sorcery? Make a charm for it. Or just make a charm that does the thing you want to do outright....

    As far as I can tell, rendering you immune to anima flux is pretty much all hardness 1 does, so it would make sense for the earth anima power to stack with stuff because dragon blooded are immune to it anyway....

    They're doing a storyteller's guide. If a simplified system shows up anywhere it's probably there....

    So, Dragon-Among-Horses Exaltation protects a mount from anima flux, but what happens to one that hasn't had this charm used on it? They use the same initiative as the rider, so the usual effects of anima flux don't make sense. Do you just treat them as if they were outside combat (and thus get 1l damage for each minute they're exposed to it)?

  • Plus now 7/8 of the celestials get second circle necromancy, which soulsteel resonates with. That might have pushed its use up in the first age....

  • It's in her stat block in a non-canon scenario book. Unless you're actually running RotSE you can say that she wasn't wearing it when she disappeared or it randomly showed up somewhere or any number of other justifications to have someone else running around with it....

    I still think that this charm reinforces the idea that torture works in the same way that Mountain Crossing Leap Technique reinforces the idea that people can jump over mountains.

    See, that's just hilarious. I'd take the charm just so I could do that.

    Although re-reading the charm that wouldn't work. You get refunded if the target doesn't know, but you also get no extra damage....

    I don't think they really need specify stuff as blindingly obvious as "if you pay motes to reroll successful dice you keep the successes".

    They're not writing a computer program. It's a rule book for humans to read.
