    ...why oh why can't I find a gif of the mech piloting a mech piloting a mech piloting a mech from Gurren Lagaan?

  • That was the original intent I believe. It was supposed to be an alternate form of character development. Obviously, many artifacts ended up being very small, but like a martial arts style, they tend to shape the way you approach combat entirely, rewarding you for fighting in a unique and possibly obscure way. So yeah, I'm a fan of this idea....

    While it's not a "usual number" answer, someone earlier in the thread asked what's the max number an artifact can have and Minton responded with this, which might give some insight....

    1) The Charm cards were really awesome and our group found them super valuable. Is that something you could see creating for future splat books as well? If not, what about a blank template (using the same formatting) that players could fill in their own stuff with?

    And if you're not the people who make that decision, how do you like the idea and are you able to pass it on to the people/person who does make that decision?

    2) I know you said you'd likely do an adjustment pass over the artifacts in the core book to account for Resonant/Dissonant effects. But for those of...

    If I want a sword that will set my foes on fire, it'll need to be made of Red Jade, not Soulsteel.
    If I want armor that will allow me to sidestep the fate of an attack, it'll need to be made of Starmetal, not Moonsilver.

    Magical Materials in 3e have specific properties that aren't duplicated with other materials. Some of those properties are broad enough to be duplicated elsewhere, some aren't. For those that aren't, if your table wants to reskin that artifact as something it's specifically not designed to work with, that's totes fine, but it's not the base design of the ga...

    In regards to the Dissonant argument, while I totally agree with the concern about it not showing up much, remember that there was some discussion of various exalts having mechanics that might change their Resonance with Artifacts. The only current example is the idea (with no details yet, just a musing thought from Vance) is Lunar DBT that might drop their artifact resonance to Dissonant with many materials. But the idea that that concept — that you can gain one form of power but lose another form temporarily — even exists opens more opportunities for the Dissonant keyword to come up. Just...

  • At first glad this looks amazing! Haven't gotten to really dive into it yet but I fully plan to. What inspired having so many of the nations/organizations divided up all over the world like that?

    A quick google search says: "Horses are extremely fast--but they can't run at top speed for very long or they overheat. The only way to ride at a full gallop over long distances is to regularly switch to a fresh horse. For most of human history, this was the fastest way to transport people and parcels over land. Basically, you run your horse hard, then change to a fresh horse so you can keep moving....

    Sure, Seres sounds good.

    I can help with this one at least, in case they never get back to you on it. The quote from the book is "Characters with mote pools regain five motes of Essence at the end of each round while in combat..." So it really has nothing to do with your turn. Once the last person from that round has gone, everyone gets 5m back and you start at the highest initiative person again....

    That makes all the different imo. Honestly, I forgot that there was a light weapon with the Smashing keyword. The problem is that not every tag is equal and Smashing has been proven to be a rather strong one, making it hard to balance with other things. It's possible it's perfectly balanced and I'm just being obtuse, but it made me nervous based on my experience so I think it's a good idea.

    Otherwise, it's a very very cool style....

    This is a very cool style, but I admit I'm super hesitant about a Light weapon with Smashing and Disarming tags. That's like the greatest weapon ever....

    I suppose by the same token, I could be bothered by the term Spirits, when it means the same thing as Ghosts. Actually spirit can be gods too. I'm not trying to knock your desire to rename it, but there's a fair bit of root-word sharing in gaming names. I suspect a lot of us would pick other words that still end up translating to mean "god" in some form. If you really wanted to rename them, I'd pick some word that has nothing to do with their status....

    *sigh* I knew that hook would point everyone to Gaze. I feel like we're not putting enough effort into the rest of the crew, but for consensus, I can change to Gaze.

    I just did a Ctrl F in the core book for "rush" to see if I found the rule somewhere else and while I didn't.... I'm kind of surprised at how often the words "crush" and "crushed" come up!

    I'm really pleased with how that all went down. As for the next step, the breadcrumbs definitely are pulling decisions towards Gaze, but I think it's time to hear from someone we haven't spoken to in a while. I'd say Seres or Serge. I'll default to the popular opinion.
