  • That method of optimising ability dots skips an important factor - non favoured ability dots and their charms. For example say you have no interest in advancing resistance and other options for your favoured abilities, but would like to have ox body technique. If you start play with 3 resistance and get ox-body x 3. In this case you are 6 xp better off from the charms due to cost difference. In addition to this lets say you leave 3 favoured abilities at 1 instead of 3, and get 2 non favoured at 3. 3 x favoured at 3 is equivalent of 21 xp. while 3 x favoured at 1 and 2 x non favoured at 3 is...

    Artifact heavy weapons are decent because of their overwhelming rating. That said there is rarely a circumstance where they are better than their medium weapon counterpart, mainly because of the defense boost and more balanced distribution. When you have opponents with 15+ soak a minimum damage of 5+ does help a lot. In play I have not found heavy artifact weapons to feel inferior. This is dependant on the st though. If the only difficulty lever they know is defense rating then maximizing accuracy is important.

    Certainly challenge fact is not always applicable, especially when not much is said at all to challenge. Unfortunately here context is everything and even a simple statement like "I killed him because he betrayed us." may be challenged based on knowledge your character feasibly could have about either the accused or the accuser. Even Chausse's example had NPCs that knew for a fact otherwise. That said there is not much value in a back on forth over making up a circumstance where it can be vs can't be challenged. Just if you are lying the less you say the less likely you will present...

    I am surprised challenge fact hasn't been mentioned yet, given it is explicitly the rule used for noticing falsehoods.

    I have always considered it a case of if you are using a falsehood in social influence, then you are counting on an intimacy to help based on that lie. If someone is able to pick up on the deception, either via Challenging a Fact(knowing better), Read Intentions(picking up on intent), or Profile Character/Case Scene(their story doesn't add up) then the social influence is not using the intimacy initially intended. This potentially pushes any attempted social influence...

    What are you gaining out of a "Maintain Distance" action?

    I assume it would not be usable in the same round as a normal reflexive move or else you would gain distance. If it is just to enable your reflexive move to occur out of your turn then perhaps just let your players do that instead. If you don't change the rules they could achieve this anyway by delaying their action to act in sequence with their opponent.

    As for the gaining distance there are options if you consider difficult terrain there are potential circumstances that you could enable a miscellaneous...
