    It may be useful to have a separate thread (along the lines of the "ask a a question, get an answer" thread) just for "what circle / ambition should this working be?" type questions....

  • This is how other splats already work, except instead of "Capacity" they just call it "experience points"....

    Don't try to boost your attributes over 5. Just don't do it! Why are you so freaking obsessed with this particular mechanical implementation of whatever it is you are actually trying to represent?

    If you want your character to get a working to be super graceful or whatever, come up with a different way to represent it. If you just want that sixth attribute dot because it's an extra die on your rolls then no, that's not a legitimate thing to be trying to do.

    Question about Righteous Soul Judgment:



    Does this:
    1. Let you automatically perform any feat of strength (subject to the condition)?
    2. Let you automatically succeed at the roll, but only for feats of strength for which you otherwise meet the strength minimums? (keeping in mind that there is another charm that lets you completely ignore those minimums)
    3. Let you ignore the cost of three athletics Charms you use to perform the feat of strength?

    OK, just to clarify, which of the following is true:
    1. The armies of Moon-Touched beastfolk aren't actually Moon-Touched in the sense you just referenced earlier (progeny of Lunars who inherited a measure of their power, what would have been called "Half-Caste" in prior editions). They're just armies of beastfolk.
    2. The armies of Moon-Touched beastfolk aren't really armies - you have a smallish number of Moon-Touched leading or serving in armies of regular beastfolk.
    3. The armies of Moon-Touched beastfolk really are armies and Moon-Touched, and the strategy of having enough kids to form

    This came up for me recently too! After reading it a few times, we figured that the second batch of "falling" damage wasn't limited to the range bands up (since the text seems to have no such limitation). So it's just (bands) levels of bashing damage for the first bit plus (bands - 1) for the second bit. I ended up knocking the guy upwards diagonally since I thought that was coolest.

    I'll admit that this seems pretty wonky but we weren't sure how to read it otherwise. I'd definitely appreciate clarification....

    It's not only "not incredible" it's basically guaranteed.

    Move is a system term. Range bands are a system term. They have a vague relation to actual geometry but that is it, it is vague, and they do not in themselves form a fully consistent geometry over which you can define metrics, etc.

    The rules for the reflexive move action and disengage are completely unambiguous:



    Meanwhile, there are no rules granting people "free reflexive move actions" outside of the rules for Rush, Disengage, or individual Charms.

    Orthogonal to all of this, is the fact that attacks of opportunity are bad (at least,...

    No, this is a bad idea, getting rid of this is a big chunk of the motivation for Rush / Disengage. Attacks of opportunity are a huge amount of additional mechanical weight that significantly distort every system that features them (as they are a source of extra attacks). The opposed Disengage roll is their "attack of opportunity", especially in a withering / decisive split system where a withering attack may not represent a hit at all.

    If you fail your disengage, you don't get to disengage. There's no "but I don't care about the consequences!!!" or any of that....

    An obvious name in this theme is Corona; less obvious names include Sunspot and Flare.
