    I can only find a wikidot entry with no citation of source, and that seems to be conflating rapiers with foils....

    A rapier is a slashing sword, though with a straight, narrow blade, three to four feet long, used more for thusting. Weighing substantially more than a short sword, it is not a light weapon.

    Don't confuse it with a fencing foil....

    Artefact weapon stats are not "ordinary weapon stats".

    ​Rather, think of it as: in the hands of the exalted, artefact weapons have the power of the monstrosities wielded by warstriders. Still, even the exalted are not gigantic war machines (that is why they made warstriders)....

    Astrology did not have charms; it had resplendancies.

    The ​Sidereal charm set was 'locked' because their design was plain weird and customisation was cautioned. In game; only the Maidens could design new charms without snarling the loom....

    Being blind gives a -3 penalty to all actions that primarily depend on sight. Defence isn't an action; so the static value isn't penalised.

    (​Full Defence is an action though, so ironically you would be worse off.)...

  • That would be the Bracelet of Shared Life. (Books of Sorcery Volume I: Wonders of the Lost Age)

    ​Basically, yes, wearer ages at the same rate as the owner (and mortals gain exalted healing) as long as the attune commitment lasts; suffers severe damage should the commitment end, thanks to jade filaments ripping out of the arm.
    Indeed. Book 1: Lands of Creation.

    ​As long as the circlet is worn on the head, and properly empowered, the wearer cannot die, drown, suffocate, starve, or dehydrate, does not age, regenerates damage, is immune to disease, and recovers from...

    replied to summoning exalted
    Yeah, no. There were eight standard species that wild card rituals might affect, but that did not mean that there were eight version of each wild card ritual.

    The (species) wild card only indicated that the ritual could affect a subclass of the species covered by the Art under which it was listed. Further, there were restrictions on what subclasses of the species each ritual could affect. (Only first circle demons, for instance.)

    Summon (Species) was only learnable under the Demon Summoning, Elemental Summoning, and Husbandry (ie, Beasts). Rather than wild card rituals,...

    CoCD:The Wyld(Ex2) indicates that all spirits are generally vulnerable to the Wyld unless specifically resistant; such as gods whose domain overlaps the Wyld that might develop some spirit charms that can help protect themselves or select worshipers. These options are not the default....

    Rathess: the lost-and-found ruins of an ancient Dragon-king city now occupied by an elder solar and his army of bandits and hobgoblins.

    Ixcoatli: the living empire of serpent-and-raitan beastfolk that spans the jungles some distance to the north east.

    Common feather-and-scale Mesoamerican aesthetics aside, I'm not seeing much redundancy. Rather there is verisimilitude that the later would be influenced by influenced by relics and remembrances of the former....

    Warstriders and Anima banners. Does Arms of the Chosen cover how do they go together?

    ​What display levels are visible, and how? Does this affect "a" charm costs? What type of anima effects might work? Et cetera

    replied to how was the usurpation successful?
    At the very least, denying the new Shogunate any means of easy communications and coordination would have been a priority target for Lunar retaliation.

    [ ​In prior editions Dragonblooded incompetence took most blame their inability to prevent First Age infrastructure from just spontaneously collapsing without the Solars around to repair and maintain it, while the Lunars just slunk off to sulk in the Wyld for several centuries. I feel Ex3's guerrilla warfare explanation to be so much more satisfying. ]...

    Or, indeed, the Ata-beasts of Halta who, in Ex2 at least, were intelligent as any human and were listed as part of the might of Haltan sample combat units (along with San-Beasts).

    Also, what is the nature of Haltan Ata- and San-beasts this edition? ​(The Familiar merit identifies "one of the talking monkeys of Halta" as a three dot familiar, so they at least exist.)

    ​If possible, will we be seeing any show up in Hundred Devils Night Parade, or Adversaries of the Righteous?...

    So the image shows war elephants decked out in barding and with blades fitted onto their tusks, and the stat-block ... actually includes support for this. Oh, excellent!

    ​I do enjoy having the artistic vision and the writing match up on these details. Jolly well done.

    That's the very point. Iron, once production became possible, became a relatively common commodity whose value was in bulk, while rarer and more decorous silver then became further associated with wealth and luxury. It acquired a symbolic value that outweighed the practical virtues....

    Eh? My reading was that it was the default. On Page 337, WyldShaping Technique talks about designating the kinds of sentient creatures that live in the shaped land in Phase 6. I ... guess I'm just used to that word being misused.

    So did they actually intend that Hero Induction Technique was needed to produce sapience rather than just specific workers for a place of trade, practice, or service?...
