    Didn't have room for spells because the Immaculate styles are huge, but it does have a sorcerous initiation for the Heptagram....

    It was a team effort....

    That seems like it'd be pretty much entirely redundant with what warstriders do. Maybe an individual warstrider could be customized through Evocations to have a heavy exterior armor that it can retract or jettison for improved mobility....

    You won't roll Athletics to pilot a warstrider - instead, it's just a little tricky to pilot (i.e. there's a penalty) until you've put in some time familiarizing yourself with both the theory and practice of how the controls work, represented by an Athletics and Lore specialty. It's specifically Athletics because of the way warstriders are piloted - you're strapped into the control harness, and your body's movements are emulated by the warstrider. Sail wouldn't really make sense for that....

    Weapons run more on wuxia logic than strict realism....

    All-Conquering Colossus's backstory is maybe my favorite thing I wrote in Arms? I'm glad you enjoyed it!...

    It's not just another initiation path into sorcery, but its mechanics are largely sorcery-adjacent.


    It's a mystery!


    Due to the pop culture baggage those terms have accumulated, I don't think we'd use them in print. If you want samurai and ninja in your Creation, go for it.


    I don't think we benefit much from nailing down a precise height.


    The vast majority of Creation's savants would have no idea what the heck you mean by "Primordial."


    I'm not terribly happy with any of the Yozi Charmsets...

    Jade as we know it in the real world probably doesn't exist in Creation....

    *rereads*

    Huh, the direlance sure does say that. I guess it is the combination artifact equivalent of both spears and lances, rather than just the artifact lance I'd thought it was, and is thus viable with White Reaper....

    I don't think Creation has any jade that isn't the same jade as the magical material....

    Going off a strict reading, none, as battle groups don't suffer wound penalties. I don't think it's wrong or unbalancing to change that, though, in the rare event of armies of spirits.


    Just like normal.


    Essentially in line with his portrayal in First Edition. I find his bureaucratic feuding with the Calendar Court more interesting than any grand metaphysical importance ascribed to him....

    My advice: Let them keep it. You're the Storyteller, they're having fun, murder the false god canon....

    Technically no, but ask your Storyteller if you can fudge it....

    White Reaper is compatible with both spears and short spears, but not lances.

    Artifact spears don't yet have a name (like the artifact equivalents of many weapons), but they exist. They'll get a name when we print one.

    EDIT: Turns out, direlances are both artifact spears and artifact lances, and are thus compatible with White Reaper when wielded two-handed as spears....

    I think they have a diverse variety of initiations. You could mix and match the ones in the core and satisfy most any of your Ysryi needs for now....

    I suspect Alchemical sorcery will be different than in past editions, but haven't really devoted any thought to these questions....

    I would just treat them as (potentially exceptional) equipment, with ad hoc adjustments like the ones you describe being made to taste....
