    Gunzosha armor (which is in Heirs to the Shogunate) uses Evocations like normal. There are some little tweaks and twists, but it's not in a whole separate class of its own....

    We've not yet addressed the activities or lack thereof of the Five Elemental Dragons in text, but plan to do so in the future, so I'll hold off on saying something here that might end up tying our hands down the road.


    Horrified....

    You'd be correct.

    Long story short: That idea predated the full-fledged development of the Evocation system. Once we started actually writing up warstriders and realized how fucking awesome their Evocations felt, we embraced them....

    While we haven't yet discussed the specifics of how new gods are created, the Celestial Incarnae are almost definitely too busy taking their leisure at the Games of Divinity to attend to such concerns....

    I think a good rule of thumb is to assume that Initiative Breaks don't go to waste unless specified otherwise.


    The two effects are compatible as written....

    It wasn't the direct cause, and the death of the Incarna that created them is, in part, a detail included to convey that killing an Incarna won't stop their Chosen....

    It's definitely not something that's clearly defined. Based on the reference to rolling against the "virulence" of a supernatural malaise in Soul Projection Method, I believe it's meant specifically as a synonym for supernatural diseases that's similar enough in nature or effect to possession that Burning Exorcism Technique makes sense as a cure for it....

    The Heptagram still teaches demon summoning.


    It's not something we're going to do as a spell.


    Emerald/Sapphire/Adamant Banishment let one character single-handedly nullify a combat encounter with demons in past editions, which was an unsatisfying experience in play. There are still various Occult Charms and thaumaturgical rituals that an exorcist will find availing; you're just not going to find a "set demons to no" effect....

    Using astrology to make accurate predictions could be represented well with a thaumaturgical ritual, possibly a modified version of "Reading the Tea Leaves." That's not to say that there's absolutely no applications of astrology that can be done with just an Occult roll....

    If they spend Willpower to resist, you did not successfully influence them.


    It's Performance only.


    It replaces the normal Willpower cost to resist....
