    Much clearer! I think having the extra sylables to stretch out helped.

    Also, maybe a tanka or lune form would be more suited to your needs then haiku? They're not as familiar to most English speakers and so might not feel as conspicuous to you. https://lestersmith.com/2009/05/poet...nka-and-lunes/

    If your goal is to communicate "hey, Sidereals exist and some of them support the Anathema", then yes, it might be a little obtuse (sorry!). Now that you've told me that was the goal I can see it, but then I've known about Sidereals for almost 20 years now

    The fourth haiku uses the words "Chosen", "Heaven", and "Fate", and I know about the Vision of Bronze so I see how that works. But I don't get the "Iron" reference or the "alloyed" imagery; those feel like wasted syllables.

    The fifth stanza makes it sound...

  • There's a chapter fiction in the Core about a one-armed Solar asking a Dragon-blooded Realm magistrate if she wants to team up. Ends on a cliffhanger so we don't know what she says, but it's at least implied that she's considering it.

    If *that* can happen, I see absolutely no reason that a given Threshold DB couldn't decide to team up with a given Solar, should circumstances conspire to make that seem like a good idea.

    If it's useful, I dug this out of my archive:

    Showing the Cobra’s Fangs
    Cost: —; Mins: Martial Arts 2, Essence 2;
    Type: Permanent
    Keywords: None
    Duration: Permanent
    Prerequisite Charms: None
    The Cobra stylist forms his hands into the famous fangs for which this style is known. Bending and poising his fingers into perfect receptacles for his killing Essence, his “hand fang” strike gains the following stats: Speed 5, Accuracy +3, Damage +5L, Defense +2, Rate 1, Tags: N. A character using this attack adds one automatic success to all Martial...

    This was also done once in 2.5e with Cobra Style. The entry Charm was Cobra Fang Technique (or similar name), a Permanent that gave you a new artifact-quality unarmed "weapon" that counted as a Form weapon for Cobra Style but, notably, not other Styles....

    So hypothetical alternative: Anyone can be trained in Style Ability dots, but you need the Supernatural Martial Artist merit before you can buy your first MA Charm.

    Better?

    The Merit wouldn't bother me except... you also need separate Ability dots.

    Nevermind, found it! No sooner did I post this than I thought of another place to look.

    Looking for some old Sidereal homebrew

    Approx. one million years ago, someone on the forum (I forget who) posted an alternative Sidereal charmset. The core conceipt was that each Ability had the same set of Charms; Ascending, Resplendent, Descending, etc. (the individual effects were still very different by Ability). Does anyone happen to have a copy? I'm also poking at some Sidereal Charms and I remember it had some cool ideas.
