    Weeell, you can always treat the flame pieces as cudgels. Brawl also works with brawling aids and improvised weapons. But yes, it is clunky; as noted by the Improvised tag....

    Indeed, enquiring minds want to know about this. How will Element Charms and Aspect interact?

    Is out-of-aspect surcharge still a thing, or will we use more of a resonance model? Also, will their be any interaction with Anima banners?...

    Seven fingered Wu pilfered a branch from an immortal peach tree, carved it into a walking stick to disguise himself as a wandering hermit, and conned a newbie sidereal into banding it with Starmetal. This isn't crafting so much as it is acquiring an artefact as a story reward through larcenous action and adventure....

    Besides the yet to be announced exalt types, there are also gods, demons, fae, and other unexalted beings capable of attuning artefacts; who are mostly dissonant with all magic materials (exempting stronger tier beings and special exceptions). A consideration when endowing an Ally with an Artefact....

    replied to Transports in Creation
    Are you recalling something like: Masters of Jade, page 35 "The caravans of Ghauli Wolf-Son are pulled through the East by a decrepit Shogunate war-golem, still sturdy enough to haul an entire wagon train," and other examples of how a single relic can transform a trading company's operations?

    ​A "wagon train" by the way, does not require rail transport. Just a lot of covered wagons, more usually drawn by horses, or yeddim, travelling along the same trail for mutual protection.

    Initially a Northern God of Bull Walrus Mating Duels, he was promoted to the Southern God of Cattle after enraging bull walruses to defend Creation during the first major fair folk invasion.

    He then acquired the Southern God of War and Cattle portfolio after some political shenanigans involving teaching mortals how to domesticate cattle, then to fight over them.

    (According to Rolls of Glorious Divinity I)

    ​CoD:South adds that this occurred as a lead up to the Incarnae's Rebellion, with the veteran cattle raiders then used as the primary source of the first...

    It is the names, isn't it.

    We have bashing versus lethal damage because there's the odd idea that damage somehow isn't as bad if there's no external bleeding. "Broken bones? Concussion? Internal haemorrhaging? Nah! You'll be right mate. It didn't cut the skin so just walk it off. Wait, is that a paper cut? To the emergency ward before you bleed out or get infected!"*

    It harks way back to Friar Tuck claiming it didn't break his vows of nonviolence if he only knocked people unconscious with a cudgel instead of spilling blood. And so DND clerics were restricted...

    They'll be the Night caste and Eclipse of this perfect circle, right? An excellent choice of line-up, all together.

    On Hercules [I'm pretty proud of giving him Craft Earthworks and Craftsman Needs No Tool, as together with his Strength Enhancing Athletics Charms it will allow for things like the cleaning of the Aegean Stables]. Brilliant! I was also impressed you gave him archery charms. His bowmanship somehow gets neglected often.

    On Orpheus [I literally paid for Seventeen Cycles Symphony to exist specifically for Orpheus One trick I'm proud of here was making him a...

    Hi there. I'll answer for EX3, as I'm fuzzy on EX2.


    There is just one owner, but others may acquire subattunements. The text on page 161 does not suggest limits on how many. When the owner is on site, they may deny additional attunements, or sever existing ones (Wits+Occult Difficulty 3). If not on site, the owner senses new subattunements but cannot block them.

    ​Ownership defaults to the first person to attune the site, though may be transferred; a hearthstone is not required for this. However, attunement and ownership will fade some months after leaving the boundaries...

    "Technically" being a brief mention of how liminal exalted are associated with reanimation and corpses, and have some dealings with the guide despite how much they unnerve the drovers and caravan followers. Also there is that picture of Dame Crimson inspecting a ghost managed storehouse selling harvested limbs....

    No. Every artefact weapon has a free evocation.* Beloved Adorie's is a +1 accuracy over other daiklaives granted on attunement to a solar,** who exults in battles,*** with increasing benefits as her defining tie to her wielder increases.

    ​Moonlit Huntress grants +1 non-charm successes to varying rolls (depending on initative) to a solar or lunar attuned to her.**

    ​Shinning Ice Mirror grants the benefits of full defence when using aim action, to any solar who commits two additional motes to attune the jade reaper daiklaive.****

    ​Spring Razor grants an...

    replied to Son WuKong and other interesting questions
    Yes. The sorcery and wonder works expansion, I believe. Second Edition's core rule book also goes up to page 392 (not including final comic and appendix), and contains Magnificent Jaguar and Seven Devil Clever as the sample Lunar 'tagonists around page 330. (Though their charm content is non-existent.)

    Seven Devil Clever is very much a shapeshifting trickster. Preferring stealth and conning to overt combat, as an ally she would provide contacts and information.

    ​Magnificent Jaguar is more the barbarian warlord type and, as an ally, he can provide logistics support:...

    replied to Aurhichtonians without soulgems
    You are conflating the Slaves and the Undying, though these are very much complementary.

    ​Slaves are an underclass of Lumpen who have their soulgem removed through a revocation ritual, drawing out their souls and leaving their husks passive and pliant; much like a dream eaten victim of the fair folk. They are living, but soulless. It is legal punishment for the worst criminals.

    ​The Undying use a thaumaturgical ritual to prevent the soul-gem from absorbing their souls when they suicide, resulting in becoming ghosts animating their own corpses. They then preserve...

  • Yes, indeed, and I'd like it to be remembered that a Wyld Hunt is now not something specific to the great powers, but a banner under which Dragonblooded from anywhere put aside differences to tackle whatever they deem Anathema. Some expansion on that idea would be nice....

    replied to Soulsteel "Stormcaller" Concept: Gravedigger
    Should not a weapon called Gravedigger be more of a Soulsteel Longfang with a head shaped to resemble a shovel's spade, whose shadowland conjuring effect spreads every round that it is struck into new ground? Or something like that.
