    Okay, here is Membe the Mouth for your perusal. More than half his Charms are in Social Trees.

    Membe the Mouth

    Nexus River Rat, Aspiring Crime Lord. Membe was the bastard child of a Guild Factor whose Mother died during childbirth. Never knowing his parentage, he ran with the Urchin gangs of the Nexus Riverways and in time became a charismatic leader of tribes of other Orphans. Exalting when fighting off the Crime Lords of the Nexus Underbelly sent to eradicate them by a greedy Guild Factor (unknowingly, his own father), he wages a one youth war to replace the leadership...

    According to Vance, it applies to as many as you can normally apply your Intimidate to, sans Orichalcum rule intervention. (Answered on Discord)

    Of course Applying Intimidate to many foes leads to a penalty of multiple targets.

    Of course Lunars have a charm to bypass this. (Argent Songbird Voice)...

    Actually, tell you what, I'll stat up a Chargen Ess 1 Lunar for use, since it was I who suggested? Then you can put it in your bloodsport arena.

    I heartily recommend Hippo form while you do this so you can Crash all sorts of dynasts Round 1 (and benefit from the initiative Crashing Others grants you) and also be a walking Tank with Daiklaive equivalent chompers while you are at it.

    Re: Intimidate Trick

    If you are in an animal form with an Intimidate Pool (so Gorillas, Hippos, Boar Tusked Crocs etc) you can take a Universal latent talent called Predator’s Menace which allows you to 1/scene strip extra success over foes resolve in Initiative when you roll to Intimidate them.

    So the trick is you really gun the check after JB when their Init pool is low and just crash the whole lot of them.

    It’s a great method for a socially focused Lunar to just blow out the competition Turn 1 (I had a write up on it, give me a sec...) Best part...

    May I make a suggestion, see how far you can get with a Changing Moon with it's only combat stat of Dex at 5 (Str and Sta can be lower, 2 or 3) and maybe just the excellency for Str and Sta. So Social Primary, Mental Secondary and Phys Tertiary, but with a rocking animal style for combat (so a lot like my knight of Bone and Ivory, which is designed to be a more social based character.)

    But try the intimidate trick! (Predator's Menace Latent) I always wanted to see how that would work in actual play! (You'll have to be a Hippo rather than a Pestletail in that case, but you can change...

  • How are people feeling about where Lunars are at, Power Wise?

    I for one think it’s perfect, I’ve always been a Lunars fan and this Charmset just gets the fear you feel vs an apex predator just right.

    Vs Mortals:
    I put this in just to say as a Mortal in Exalted, in the top 3 most scary things out there would be the face stealing witches who can level cities.

    Vs Dragonblooded
    I’m very glad about how this turned out (Thanks DrLoveMonkey!) It isn’t a walkover by any means but Lunars have seemingly overwhelming strength vs any one Dragonblooded. It’s a good place.

    Vs Solars
    Ah, the crown jewel...

    With regards to the Songline Runes add on for the Lunars Kickstarter, is there any indication when the DrivethruRPG codes will go out now that Backerkit is up, just curious.

    Re: Immaculate Masters consistently losing to E1 Lunars

    When you say that the DB has to declare all Attack/defence/Damage Charms before going, doesn’t the Lunar player have to as well? The only thing Lunars get to cheat real well in combat is soak, everything else offence wise needs to be declared at the same time as the DB...?...

  • If I am going to be perfectly honest, I didn’t give the tactical stuff a fair shake. I’ll go back and have a review of them today.

    Anyone see any outstanding “I Win” social stuff? I think it’s hard to top Argent Songbird at Ess1 really. (Buying 5 successes is nuts y’all)...

  • I suppose the ability to already turn into a Legendary Sized critter at Ess1 dis-inclined me from choosing it.

    Though if you are a grappler DBT Falcon Stylist, nothing could be finer. Everything unopposed!...

  • Just take Radiant Basilisc Jewel at Character Creation.

    But yes, I agree that workhorse is probably not what you want at the investment.

  • Dexterity

    Unerring Fang Technique (1m, Supplemental, Striking Mospid Method): Hmm, 1m for 1 extra success whenever you spend a full excellency and you can cheat and not stunt it and just spend 5 motes? Its a nice workhorse charm, not flashy, but not bad.

    Intelligence

    Shadow Hand Invocation (2m, Reflexive, One Turn, Cloaked in Moonfire): As stated in another thread, you should be able to flurry Sorceries in combat as a Pestletail with Full Defense and the Natural Shield (OO) mutation (attach it to your Tell) until the cows come home and you are basically a...

  • Prototype00’s Lunar Ess2 Charm picks with no Ess2 Pre-reqs (Glory Sphere)

    Did you know that Lunars can pick one Ess2 Charm at character Creation from whatever Attribute they want? Caveats are:

    1: You need the Glory Sphere Greater Dependent Hearthstone, either buy it with Merits or grow it with Radiant Basilisc Jewel (you also need another non-dependent Hearthstone to power it, just pick up a Stable one for 2 Merit dots)
    2. The Ess2 Charm can have no Ess2 pre-reqs and you need all the Ess1 Pre-reqs
    3. You need to meet the Attribute Minimum (TBH it’s probably 5) for the Charm.

    Since Lunars are, I think, reasonably incentivised to...

    Is there ever a Chance to use the Lunar Int charm Memory Drinking Meditation on a target more than once? Or is it once only when you steal their face, forever?
