    Using Phantom Arrow Technique to add an intimacy's strength to your attack numbs you to that intimacy. Does that mean that you don't count as having that intimacy any more until you've appropriately remembered it, or is it just a fancy reset condition for the charm?

    Also on that note, does the intimacy numbing thing count as a reset condition for the purpose of the Dawn anima power?

    Silent Words of Dreams and Nightmares is a ritual spell, but doesn't indicate how long the ritual takes to complete. How long should it take?

    Can Essence-Gathering Temper be reset by the same attack you used it against?

    Does join battle benefit from awareness charms and similar effects that enhance a specific sense? eg Deep-Sea Echo Sense giving double 8s on hearing-based rolls, does that apply to JB if you're listening for your enemies?

    Is it intended that warstriders are very weak to being clashed by individuals? Your attack roll is taking a -4 penalty against them, and it lets people get around the rule against parrying warstrider attacks without magic. It seems odd that a mortal swordsman who's normally unable to defend against a warstrider attack can pretty consistently beat one up by waiting to clash it instead.

    How would you model trying to modify an existing artifact? I've got a character who might want to add wings to a warstrider at some point, would that be a separate crafting project, or could you do it with something like Design Beyond Limit to add a flight evocation? Or is changing an artifact like that once it's finished being forged not feasible?

    Page 170, Berserker Fury Blitz is listed as reflexive, but as its only effect is enhancing an action it should be supplemental (unless it's meant to be activated post-roll when boosting damage rolls, in which case it should say it can be used in that way).

    It's fiat-level damage. By using the charm in that mode you're accepting some ruinous consequence and waiving your right to defend (or have others defend you) against it in any way....

    And we're expecting to see artifacts in each Exalt's book that are related to that Exalt and therefore mostly in their material, right?

    Sorry for the question flood, I'm just full of them today.

    When you make an area attack after aiming at one of the targets, how do you resolve the aim bonus? Going by a strict reading you gain those dice against all the targets, but it seems like it'd make more sense to roll them separately against that enemy.

    Fists of Iron Technique says that "her bare-handed decisive strike does lethal damage and her withering damage ignores (Essence + Intimacy) soak", is that meant to be read as granting the withering bonus to all attacks, whether they're unarmed or not?...

    Lightning ballistas can be used to make a single withering attack applied to enemies across multiple different range bands, how would you calculate accuracy for that and any similar effect?

    On a similar note, implosion bows automatically hit battle groups and trivial characters on anything but a botch and get base damage equal to the threshold successes. Does this mechanic mean their defence is treated as 0, meaning that all your rolled successes are threshold successes, or do you still calculate threshold based on their actual defence value?

    If you follow up an aim action...

    When an effect other than a decisive attack deals dice of health damage, does it default to not getting double 10s?

    Cathedral of Sublime Annihilation's crossbow and firewand damage stats of 16/18 respectively appear to have the effective strength 4 from the crossbow/flame tag built in, but don't mention that anywhere, so by a strict reading you'd be adding that +4 a second time when calculating your base damage. It should either list the base damage only or specify that the +4 is built in (or, if it's actually meant to have an extra +4 damage base, it should specify that).

  • It was originally a single doc, but at that size google docs started to lag horribly and I couldn't keep it updated so I had to switch to this setup. I made a quick compiled pdf version though, it's not pretty but it's searchable....

    For the warstrider penalty to attack a human-sized target, does it apply to:

    1) Charms that indiscriminately apply a single attack to everything in one or more range bands, eg Heaven Sword Flash?
    2) Charms that apply a single attack to selected targets across one or more range bands, eg Arrow Storm Technique?
    3) Charms that let you make multiple attacks, eg Iron Whirlwind Attack, if you choose to spread those attacks out across multiple targets?
    4) Charms that make a single attack against a single target, but also do large-scale damage around that target, eg Solar...

    It lasts for the remainder of the scene. Karvara getting incapacitated is a secondary and probably really rare way of ending it....

    Few questions about Rain of Feathered Death -

    1) Is it considered multiple attacks for any purposes, eg onslaught?
    2) Do subsequent damage rolls check again against hardness? For example, if I hit someone with hardness 10 while on 12 initiative and roll 5 successes, do I then get to roll 7 (and less than that, and less than that etc) because the initial attack already beat their hardness, or does it just hit with the initial 12 damage arrow and then bounce off with the rest?
    3) Do charms that boost damage apply multiple times? Discussion came up about Heartsong's Suitor-Punishing...

    How do warstrider wound penalties work? Do they apply like regular wound penalties to any action involving the warstrider? If both the pilot and the warstrider have taken damage, would you use the higher of both wound penalties, stack them, only use one or the other?

    Gotta say, the similarities between Heartsbalm and All-Conquering Colossus make the former look pretty lame. I can imagine Mirshaan and Oak Ring Prince hanging out at a party or something. "Oh, your husband made you a 3-dot suit of armour after you almost died? That's cute. My wife made me a terrifying orichalcum behemoth that can tear a tyrant lizard asunder and almost killed me with it. For our first date."
