    It was when it’s style weapon was the bow, I don’t see why that would change with its style weapon becoming a staff.

    The Treestrider could even provide a staff, either by ripping a whole tree out of the ground or magically growing an appropriate branch to rip off.



    What was the warning?...

    If you had a tamed Tyrant Lizard roll Join Battle and fight alongside you, and then you mounted up on its back to fight another Exalt mounted on his own Tyrant Lizard, what happens to your respective Initiative tracks?

    Does the dinosaur just lose its Initiative entirely, does the rider gain that value if greater than her own, or something else?

    I think the Treestrider would be pretty terrifying with a Wood Dragon Style Master for a pilot.

  • Creation's a big place, and I doubt they had TV news broadcasting or the internet in that Era.

    Other Warstriders could have been built and fielded while that Invincible Sword Princess was wandering around the edges of the world looking for fights, and All-Conquering Colossus is merely the first she saw. Because it was the only one specifically seeking her out.

    But yeah, it very well could have been the first....

  • Lunars, yes, but why no Castes?

    Garfield Logan is an easy Changing Moon, and Ben Tennyson is a comfortable fit as a Full Moon.

    Well, I suppose Beast Boy could be a Full Moon who thinks he's more socially adept than he really is. That would fit....

  • All-out Holy War between the Scarlet Dynasty and the Eight Nations of Autochthonia for possession of the Eye of Autochthon. The Realm has it, and used it to build as many Warstriders as they need to conquer Creation before the Autochthonians arrived and then to match the number of their Colossi.

    Going for a Gundam / Battletech: Invasion of the Clans war-opera backdrop.

    They’ve replaced voice actors before, for Mercury and Lie Ren. They can replace Glynda’s VA if they need her again.

    That said, it would seem easier for Solars to find ways to enhance orichalcum Evocations with their native Charms, which is all the incentive they need to favor orichalcum even when they're equally Resonant with all Artifacts.

    Compatibility goes beyond mere Resonance.

  • A neat idea is having an Evocation that only works when the sword's master has a Major or Defining Intimacy related to battle, such as "I never turn down a fight" or "Never surrender!"

    This Evocation would allow the Exalt to shed a point of Limit after a successful battle. Any ally with a similar Intimacy feels the same relief.

    But simply by having such Intimacies, an Exalt would gain a point of Limit any time they turned away from a potential battle or tried to retreat. Thus does Conquest create a skinner box where any Exalt who would become distressed...

  • Marisa is anything from a mortal sorceress to a Fire Aspect Dragon-Blood to a Solar of the Twilight or Night Caste.

    And most of the youkai are Fair Folk (Rumia) or elementals (the tengu and kappa), with the gods being gods. Mostly.

    The Four Devas of the Mountain are good inspirations for Raksha, as well. Exiled former lords who once abducted mortals for their own pleasures.

  • Sometime before next Monday, I hope to find the time and energy to proofread this thing for you.


    But right now, the final Evocation could use a tweak.

    I think it should only allow a respawn if the “game” was, in fact, good. The gamer should need to prove his skill by racking up kills, accomplishing feats of prowess, and successfully influencing his allies, opponents, or audience.

    Let their immortalizing fears, awe, and prayers be the conduit by which he escapes death.

  • I want to create a lot of the youkai from Touhou.

    Gensoukyo, literally "Illusion/Fantasy Country" or even "Wonderland", is a refuge for fae creatures who cannot survive the stifling reality of the human world. Very much a Bordermarch or Middlemarch in Creation, to hide from the Realm and the Hannya.

    The Scarlet vampire sisters, with their "exiled nobility" and solipsistic cruelty, are particularly appropriate for Raksha. They feed on humans, have frightening abilities to control Fate/Coincidence or to destroy anything that has a physical...

    The rule is that a name has to evoke a color. Arslan’s name means “lion” which evokes the tawny yellow hide and brown mane of lions.

    Ghira at the very least might evoke Bagheera, the black jaguar (panther) of the Jungle Book. And that’s assuming his name doesn’t mean something in a language I don’t know.

    I figure that the Alstreides guymelefs from Escaflowne could work as moonsilver Noble Warstriders, if you removed features that don't fit as well with moonsilver, like the flamethrowers and the ability to fly.

    That still leaves the quicksilver claws and invisibility cloaks, which is more than enough for a badass Warstrider.

    Silverskin (the idea above has been renamed to Argent Coat, so that both are more accurate)

    An idea which seems much more characteristic of Rakshi, the vain Queen of Fangs.

    This moonsilver Silken Armor infuses itself into the wearer, leaving them naked if they weren't wearing anything else. Their skin turns silver; they look like Marvel's Silver Surfer.

    In this state, the armor gives the wearer the Chameleon Merit, with the same bonus for being naked. If the wearer has the Chameleon Merit, then they get another bonus die. They can also change their color...

    Vale City most likely has a militia. Which was most likely stationed at the country borders, to keep the Grimm out.

    Problems inside the city would be civil matters for the police.

    The system worked. It took a major campaign of terror to cause trouble, and the White Fang airmailed Grimm inside the city, and the robots and air ships were turned against their masters.

    It was an amazing push against the city that failed to kill the city.

    Which he probably only managed by revealing the magical stuff that he needed to reveal to as few people as possible.

    Sure, he could prove the existence of magic to the whole world in order to try and convince them about Salem, but then he has to deal with the whole world knowing about the Maidens and the Relics, when the best protection those girls and objects have is that people don't know about them.



    I direct your attention to Torchwick, who very much kept his mouth shut when arrested, and who didn't dare trying to run away from Vale and Cinder before...

    And another thing: the only Grimm we have ever seen Salem actually control are the Seers. The tentacled crystal ball things.

    She couldn’t control the Grimm at Vale, or else Cinder’s terrorism wouldn’t have been necessary to provoke the attack.

    She can’t control the Grimm on Anima well enough to send any along with Tyrian when he hunted Ruby, or with Cinder to meet Raven and Vernal.

    Cinder apparently had to try hypnotizing the Dragon herself, and didn’t seem pleased with her results given that she looked ready to blast it before Pyrrha interrupted....

    “...and never had the proof to convince people she was real, because she always works through agents who would rather die than betray her, and I have never managed to find where exactly she hides. Every time I tried, I was eaten by Grimm.

    “I probably became desperate enough to try telling people about her, once or twice, but it obviously didn’t work, which is probably around the time I quit and became a hermit in despair.



    “Though the only government in which a school headmaster has any legal voice is Atlas, which explicitly deviates from the model I set...
