    Probably.


    If such an elemental existed, it'd be fair game for Summon Elemental, assuming it's within the appropriate Essence range....

    I think that's the sort of thing that's better left up to Storyteller discretion than given rigid mechanics. For instance, just as a matter of wordcount, I doubt we'd ever print up anything covering the topic of the offspring of couplings between the ghostly and the divine, but if an individual ST wants to have such a spirit show up in his game, I think that'd be cool....

    Roughly speaking, yes. Low-Essence ghosts are probably the biggest outlier; they're notably weaker than First Circle Demons and the like....

    If it's a danger, and it's hidden from you by any means, even non-active ones like being around the corner, Surprise Anticipation Method will apply....

    Maybe. It might be a bit confusing if gossamer refers to two different things (i.e. a resource pool that raksha have and also a magical material).


    Assuming it is used as a magical material, then no....

    We've got multiple competing ideas that could work, so I can't really narrow it down. Sorry!...

    I ended up coming up with a whole keyword that tackles that issue. I'll probably discuss that stuff later on, though....

    I think the difference between Ability Charms and Attribute Charms makes the overlap a lot less than one might think....

    Their baseline is the typical baseline for Martial Arts styles, although the fact that they go up to Essence 5 means there's some extra power packed into them.


    The Elemental Aura powers up Immaculate style Charms to the same degree it powers up Dragon-Blooded Charms....

    I think they had access to many of the Charms prior to remaking their Castes, through the archetypal roles of their previous Castes. There may have been some differences in the substance or structure of their First Age Charmset, but since we aren't going to write two separate Lunar Charmsets, that's gonna remain firmly in the realm of the hypothetical....

    Yes. They get discussed in The Realm.


    No.


    Vitriol is still a thing, but whether it'll be involved in Infernals' capacity to attune artifacts remains undetermined....

    It's the predominant Aspect that scions of that house or gens Exalt into. Some cadet houses may have an Aspect, others may not—their sizes and pedigrees can vary widely....

    Gotcha! While human-level artificial intelligences are definitely rare in the Second Age, that doesn't necessarily mean blue ice can't exist....

    It's not at all unusual for a Dragon-Blood to wield elements other than her Aspect's, although most Dragon-Blooded will definitely favor their Aspect's element....

    While nothing's stopping you from creating an upgrade Evocation that says "hey, all of Volcano Cutter's Evocations have the Fire keyword now," I don't recommend it, and don't think it'll ever be showing up in printed material. So many elemental Evocations already exist in the core, and if there's no real consistency as to what counts as being elementally aspected and what doesn't, I fear it'd result in such too much cognitive strain....

    Do you mean Icemind, the Gateway-playing artifact that Kes and Szaya created? I don't think we mention it in either of their write-ups, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    Or is blue ice a totally different thing, and I'm mixing stuff up?...
