    Yeah, that could work. It feels essence 2+ but I was having trouble finding a prerequisite in Brawl. Increasing Strength Exercise seems like a good fit. Do you think it should help with feats of strength?...

    I'm definitely leaning more towards combat applications, like with someone potentially wielding multiple weapons at once.

    So maybe a Brawl charm with the rider that once you summon them they're just arms and you can use them for whatever you want? That would also open them up to help with grappling/ multi-punch capacity that the Extra Arms mutation doesn't actually grant....

    Given certain features of their patron, sprouting an extra pair of glowing phantasmal arms seems like something that just scrapes into the solar wheelhouse.

    Which ability would you put such a charm under?...

    That's not including excellencies though, is it?

  • One thing that might trip masqueraders up is that requiem Nosferatu are scary, not ugly. In requiem you could have one that looks completely normal but, like, constantly cries blood or something.

  • No, you add the individual ones together first. 3 dots plus one dot would net you (2+5) from the individual ranks plus an additional 4. So you'd get 11....

    Yeah, I think I slipped up and said "permanent" because they kept calling it that in the posts.

    Probably not because I've been reading Exalted stuff a lot lately. Permanent and indefinite mean different things there....

    Does Lookshy have a total monopoly on gunzosha or does the realm also own a few suits?...

  • Er, not quite. It's (total ranks in arsenal for everyone) x (number of conspirators-1). If you have 4 people but only 2 of them have arsenal 3 and the other two have arsenal 2 you'll get 16 + (2+2+3+3)x3 which would give you 46 dots of artifacts.

    Handily this is actually the same equation for just one person, because the bonus dots become ranks x 0, so you just get the listed number....

  • I don't think the dots mentioned in the arsenal background are limits, I think they're the total dots worth of Artifacts you can get. Arsenal 2 gets you three dots of artifacts, none of which can be more than 2 dots, while arsenal 3 gets you five dots, none of which can be over 3.

    So yeah, the examples just mucked up the maths. you get 40 resource points at 3, not 30.

    The 56 took me a while to figure out. but basically

    Four people with arsenal 3 = 5 dots each so a base of 20. Then you add [number of people-1] dots for every level of arsenal each has, which...

    Have you given any thought at all to how you're going to approach Autochthonia's decidedly more technological approach to artifacts? A lot of the stuff they consider mundane would probably be reserved for first age wonder-hood in Creation....

  • I think the problem is less that the terrestrials can't conquer the whole world without the celestials leading them and more that they can't conquer the whole world with the celestials standing in the way.

    If they could co-operate, maybe form a more egalitarian relationship than the first age with solars and lunars as Alchemical-style "champions" that ultimately answer to the people, then yeah, they could totally do it....

    I think 2e basically spelled that out. Fetiches define their Yozi. The Dragon's Shadow was without form, unable to act until they created the Unconquered Sun.

    He's totes Ebby's fetitch.

    Yantras are divided into categories because there's a limit to how many dice you can get from a single one. You can exceed this by using multiple categories, which you're gonna need to do for really big spells.

    Also the easiest way to cast a permanent spell is to make the duration the primary factor. Some have that by default and others you need to spend a reach. This means you bump up the duration by arcarnum-1, which if you're arcarnum 4 takes care of 6 dice of those penalties. Now, you can probably manage to cast at 4 dice but a few yantras aren't gonna hurt here, especially if...
