  • I'd consider this a Finesse 3-5 working regardless. You're specifying what is being done, the materials for it, and precisely where they're coming from. Finesse isn't, per my understanding, about the level of craftsmanship, so much as the size of the blanks left for the ST to fill in.

    While I'm not you and thus don't know exactly what you were thinking when you posited this, I'm going to toss out the following hypothetical scenario:

    The Situation: A new settlement is running into issues as they try to plow fields: the soil is absurdly rocky, making planting difficult....

  • The lower the ambition, the more inclined I am to make the sorcerer go, "Well, that's not how I would have done it, but I guess it works," if largely just because lesser workings are less powerful and thus quirks and eccentricities have less room to go awry.

    Alucard was absolutely right, though, when he said that being a dick isn't the way to go.

    Amendment: being a dick to the player isn't the way to go. If the player wants their character's workings to be borderline-unusable plot hooks that they make, shudder, and then hide away until really desperate, then...

    I wasn't thinking the charm would necessarily grant Solar XP as an effect of itself, so much as the act of hunting down one who had misused your tools put you in a good position to earn Solar XP; those first two options of Expression Bonus (core p. 177) leap to mind.

    And you're welcome!...

    So if I were to try to rework what you have...

    I'll warn you in advance, I just really, really don't like the core effect of your version of Chains Fall Away. So this is going to diverge pretty heavily, and since you've said you like what you have you can freely ignore everything that follows. I also haven't really hammered this out into charm shapes yet.

    Okay, starting with Red Anvils Ringing, I would rather say that anything you make (possibly tie this Undoubted sign of the Master) into is kind of bound to you passively, and rather than actively checking on it your...

    So on the whole I agree with what you're trying to do here. But there are some bits I don't care for. Some of it is I just think we've got different goals out of Craft, so some complaints would amount to telling you to stop having fun.

    I'll limit myself to a few things:

    The Cannibalism charm is the biggest offender, because if you removed it from the Craft tree and presented it on its own, there's nothing in it that makes me feel like it belongs there; it's the sort progression of concept that's more appropriate to 2e Yozi trees, not Solar ones.

    The other...
