    I think my question might have got lost in the churn. If you are wearing the Silken Robes Artifact and you activate Pearlescent Filigree defence from Dreaming Pearl Courtesan, does your Artifact armor spontaneously convert into mundane light armor or does it remain an Artifact.

    And if it remains an Artifact, can I still use the second clause of the charm to boost soak up to Appearance?

    Yeah, I kinda have to agree. They probably wanted to have a reclusive, undisturbed places kind of Satyr folk, but in doing so, and naming it the Hulder, bits of the actual Hulder were lost in translation.

    As mentioned, it's probably not a big deal to put some epic Strength Knack or something similar in. The rest is mostly behaviour and role playing....

    That's why you drain the suckers of Willpower beforehand with trivial requests or the tacking on of minor intimacies, then you hit them with the Seduction attempt mid combat to make them literally drop their pants/skirt. (Malinta Ras, totally not a practitioner of the Martial Arts known as Black Claw)...

    Interesting! Is Teo a young Garda Bird (I thought they sprang forth fully formed when they are killed) or some different kind of Elemental? The charm "Garda Aspirant's Claw" seems to hint at the former.

    If it is a young Garda bird, its nice that its a new Ess 2 Elemental type that can be bound as a familiar.

    True enough, like I said, easy enough to mix and match knacks. Though I am slightly bummed that their custom power is "Make my home a fortress" Rather than "I am strong enough to pretzel iron pokers or straighten horseshoes with my bare hands, so don't test me, husband mine."...

    I wonder if Neall based the entire Hulder write up on the Novella, then? I mean the various extant myths have much merit too (and aspects of them obviously appear in the Novella but I still don't recall the "House and Home" parts)...

    Ah, yes. Forgot that mortification of the Mind also counts.

    On the subject of Hulder, I feel obliged to point to Neil Gaiman's Monarch of the Glen novella for an excellent example of a Huldra in a modern context. The competing strains of wanting to be a solitary, reclusive wilderness existence vs wanting to be a part of society are really strong there....

    Aren't austerities like the mortification of the flesh performed by ascetics today? Smearing your skin with the ashes of the dead, maintaining an uncomfortable position or subsisting on basically nothing?

    Hmm, I must have been reading the wrong Huldra legends? I don't recall them having that much of a connection to hearth and home or being quiet hermits...

    What happened to all the stories about them marrying mortal men and their tails falling off in a Church wedding, or of a Huldra-wife who twists a red hot poker into a pretzel to show her abusive husband what's what? Or of the shepherd boy who meets one and is polite by telling her her petticoat is showing when it actually is her cow tail?

    Easy enough to pick and mix knacks though.

    If we are going by descriptive...

    Ah, as DPC's author if you can tell me if Pearlescent Filigree Defence makes the Silken Robes Artifact count as mortal light armor when active (i.e. It downgrades the Artifact), I might limit it to throwing salt over my left shoulder and making the sign of the Cross. ...

    replied to Killing a Deathlord
    In 2nd edition there were Hidden Judges of The Secret Flame, gods you could summon for the low low price of a Celestial Circle Ritual. They could only be hurt by weapons dipped in the blood, willingly given, of someone that had never broken any of the Laws of Heaven. They also hit like a truck, and I recall the example one had a sword specialised for killing ghosts.

    I'm not saying that these things could kill Deathlords, but if you really want to distract them while you enacted your plan...

    I'm well aware of the ramifications of this ruling, having run the numbers myself on occasion, I just wanted to clarify with the devs.

    Does this also mean that Appearance adders don't figure into the calculations for most of Dreaming Pearl Courtesan? (Like the other soak adder)

    While you might be comfortable and confident with the charm power for Tiger, I have my doubts that Dreaming Pearl seems as attractive when you pull out this particular Jenga block....

    So does that mean that Increasing Strength exercise doesn't interact with any of Tiger Styles Charms that key off Strength (like the Soak adder and the ability for the capstone charm to reset to base initiative with a bonus from Strength)?...

    This is going to be my approach too. Seriously, just re-fluff it and you are good to go.

    Also: Need divine justice rained down upon the guilty (and those who go even slightly against what the sacrosanct authors of Exalted have written)?

    Thank you for providing clarity to that old chestnut!

    A somewhat related query, if a martial artist is wearing Silken Robes and activates Pearlescent Filigree Defense from Dreaming Pearl Courtesan, does it turn his artifact armour to mortal light armour or is the martial artist considered to still be wearing the silken robes?

    If the martial artist is considered to be wearing the artifact robes, then can they still activate the soak enhancer part of the charm?...

  • basically the base charm works like this:

    Raw Damage - Str / Post Soak + Str

    Now the mastery changes what is in parentheses:

    Raw Damage -Str (+Str) / Post Soak Damage + Str

    Otherwise nothing in the charm says that the converted dice are replaced. Or perhaps I am being too harsh in my interpretation.

  • I'm not sure the Mastery for SFC is quite that good? I was always under the impression that it basically replaced the dice that you converted from RAW to post soak? So you still got your full Raw pool, rather than Raw pool - Strength (Still 3x addition of Strength with the Form)

    For the purpose of familiars (and Charms associated with familiars) will there be full stat blocks for animals (extra work, for which I apologise, but the current QC statblocks don't interact well with Survival charms)?
