    replied to What were Artifact Sais called again?
    If they're meant to be used as a pair, you buy them as a pair. Similar weapons include Razor Claws, Short Daiklaves, smashfists, etc. Only Short daiklaives spell out that buying them gets you a pair but all the other paired weapons seem to assume that as well. Dot ratings are based on how potent they are. If you lose one, you'd definitely lose the evocations that you had from the pair, but you might potentially be able to create a new evocation tree based around using one-of-a-pair weapons (for an example of how that works see Sirrush in Arms of the Chosen). That would only make sense if the themes...

    PC: "Lore (Against the Realm)"
    ST ..."Ummm... no, that doesn't really work"
    PC "I get a bonus to knowing the realm's weaknesses!"
    ST: ..."No..."
    PC: "Fine, I'll change it to occult (against the realm)"
    ST: "Please just stop"

    Edit: Come to think of it, "Against the realm" doesn't really make sense for any ability. For most stuff it's simply too broad. For everything else it just doesn't fit....

    There's a name for each moon in a year.

    Wolf Moon
    Snow moon
    Worm Moon
    Pink moon
    Strawberry moon
    Buck moon
    sturgeon moon
    Harvest moon (sometimes September was Full corn moon instead)
    Hunters moon (sometimes October was harvest moon instead)
    Beaver moon
    Cold moon

    and a full lunar eclipse is a blood moon

    I'm pretty sure one of the summer ones was also know as the honey moon which is where we get that term from.

    I think it's arguable that it could be done with lore if you're specifically a scholar of linguistics.

    The linguistics ability would definitely be the roll if you're looking to write something in the style of a particular area or simply write anything in English, but I think if you're looking to identify what era a particular piece of writing came from based on the language structure you'd be rolling lore.

    Then again, I think I'd also let a player use linguistics to come up with that knowledge if they stunt it appropriately....

  • I dislike three things about this concept:

    First it completely bypasses the craft system to imbue objects with supernatural powers and second, there's already a way to do things like this: Special Materials (Exalted page 590). Things like making armor out of feather steel gives it the silent tag. Third, the higher level stuff are things that straight up artifacts can do. You should never be able to just slap an enchantment on something the size of a rocket launcher so you can hide it in your pants. That's a three dot artifact at the very least....

    I'm afraid you're not quite there yet.

    The background relates more to where the character picked up his knowledge. It has nothing to do with the specialties in the game. So for instance, if a character was trained at the feet of a lunar master in all things lore, they'd likely know a ton about the wyld, lunar social structures, the realm's affect on the fringe, the usurpation, etc. What they wouldn't know anything about and would not be able to roll about at all is things like the social structure in Autochthonia, or the secret alliances of the houses in the Realm (unless the lunar...

  • OK, I'm not trying to turn this into a debate thread about Dragon Prince but:

    What are you talking about?

    The entire show is them choosing their own path, seeing an opportunity to end the war their nations are in and choosing to try to do that all while dealing with enemies on both sides of the conflict who want the war to continue. Literally no one gave them a quest. They did that on their own.

    This show is like the definition of 'furthering their own motivations'...

    yeah, 'hates dragon bloods' is pretty solidly a tie.

    Anything that you can write out as "Target of intimacy (emotional context)" is gonna be a tie. Dragon Blood (hatred) definitely counts.

    A principal is something like "I will never tell a lie" or "Justice should be applied equally to all" or something along those lines...

    If you have a player who's got someone grappled with rounds of control remaining, would you allow them to throw the grappled character at a third character? If so, how would you model that?
