    Or you're wearing silken robes which are being boosted with GSP? The exception that everyone with half an ounce of inclination to mechanical optimisation will be using?

    Well, how about comparing something like Black Claw, that doesn't have any soak boosting charms to speak of? Snake is a pretty all round top tier style, I think most agree.

    Is that so, I don't recall that limitation to the charm? (Only if you are not wearing armour that is). Could you perhaps point out where that is written? (Granted the only armour compatible with Dreaming Pearl is the Silken Robes)...

    So if you are wearing clothing under your armour (common enough), it makes a suit of normal light armour under whatever armour you are wearing that does basically nothing but hinder Martial Arts?...

    This is one of the Rules interaction bugbears that have haunted Ex3 since it was released. I'm confident that enough turns at the squeaky wheel that is this forum will bring a reply from either Vance or Holden or some other rules person.

    In the event that either of them answer this, I hope they will also answer if Pearlescent Filigree defence from Dreaming Pearl Courtesan will turn Artifact armour that the user is wearing into mundane armour or if the artifact armour takes precedence?

  • Hmm, yeah, originally something was slated for February, maybe the schedule has slipped somewhat.

    I'm at least reasonably sure that nobody I've seen on this board disputes (Maybe I'm about to find some that do!) the Pearlescent Filigree Defence / Silken Robes route to usage in Black Claw Style (If you don't have the Silken Robes it just doesn't work), so I'm reasonably sure that will fly (because I haven't seen any Storytellers eager to downgrade artifacts because of charms).

    The Glorious Solar Plate I've witnessed a one page forum back and forth discussion about in the MA thread, so that is shaky ground to me.

    If that works, great as well! (Though I recall there being some discussion as to whether this was as cut and dry as it was being read).

    That sounds about right. I'm still not big into deep dives into DPC on account of some not so great charms for the Black Claw practitioner, but if you do take it up, all the way, then this is pretty great. (I'm still of the opinion that Heart Ripping Claw is probably enough to end most thing, most times, really)



    Ah thats a good use of it I hadn't seen.Well figured.



    I'm not saying it isn't exciting, I'm saying its really expensive to buy deep into two charm trees. There are some nice synergies later on, no doubt. The point I am pushing is that...

    Ah, right you are (and everyone else too), my mistake. Well you can either just take the defensive stuff (which actually is the meat of a Black Claw practitioner's use of Dreaming Pearl style, and the best stuff is low essence) or fight unarmed.



    You misread me, I'm not saying its useless in itself. I'm saying if you went in via the route of Black Claw, the artifact weapon and artifact armor generated by this form charm are useles because you already have them. (Silken robes for the use of Pearlescent Filigree Defence and Wood Dragon Claw because it is awesome).

    According to Nishkriya, Vance and Holden have said that WDC is a valid DPC weapon.


    So thats a writer and a Dev who have said that it works.

    Returning to Dreaming Pearl, here is the run down:

    Demure Carp Feint MA 3 Ess 1: Not bad, even more evasion and Initiative as your App definitely beats their resolve.

    Elegant Weapon Repertoire MA 3 Ess 1: I don't know how elegant Wood Dragon Claws killhooks are, but you get +5 To withering damage with them for 3 motes, which is a good deal!

    Pearlescent Filigree Defense MA 2 Ess 1: This charm only benefits you if the following are true:

    1. You have the Silken Robes Artifact Armor
    2. Your storyteller agrees that this charm does not transform...

    Hence why I said probably App5. 5 in an attribute like appearance is a beauty appearing but once a century or millennia, even.

    In my mind that fits Helen, it obviously does not in yours. I respect that but do not enjoy arguing about molehills. Hence I return to focusing on the OPs query, and I bid you ,if you please, to do the same.

    All indications point out that god-blooded in 3e don't have super Attributes for the most part, or have you seen differently?

    I'd imagine they would have access to much better Attribute boosting charms than Solars, so chances are good that their App might end up higher than 8?...

    Dreaming Pearl has some interesting but limited synergy with Black Claw. I'll run through the charms and post what I think, but suffice to say I don't think rushing to Gazellecarp is the best use of your charms.

    I wonder if Jotunblut will be anywhere in the game (an Aesir knack maybe)?

    It was a bit of a stretch to hang the entire PSP on it, but I kind of was fond of it.

    Nope, seems you found all of them. You can be so beautiful that Helen of Troy (probably 5 App) looks like a plain Jane compared to you (Difference between Helen and almost everyone else is 3 App, the same difference between yourself and her).

    Getting +3 non-charm social dice, always, against Batman (Resolve 5) is a nice bonus. Obviously against lesser beings you can just pull out the gallon dice bucket.

    Edit: Hmm so some back of the napkin math: 8 (App) + 6 (Presence + Specialty) + 3 (Bonus from appearance) + 3 (Harmonious Presence Meditation) + 2 (One point stunt) =...
