    I like this suggestion, but it can be used for any number, while a 3-specific title is likely to only be applicable to 3.
    Also I wasn't sure how well this thread idea would go off, so I just went with something random at the time.

    This made me think it should have a reference to love triangles. General Exalted Discussion III: Our Circle Is A Love Triangle?

    Otherwise, perhaps General Exalted Discussion III: Any More And You'll Need Bonus Points.

    Does Essence used for attuning yourself to artefacts come from your Personal or Peripheral pools?

    Either, but I don't know if your Anima Flares if it's Peripheral Essense.

    It does, but it doesn't stay that way, and the anima fades normally.

    Ah, right. Good to know. Thanks, guys. Looks like I'll just have to flare up for a while if I want to use my power armour.

    Right, another question: If I have the Essence Gauntlets feature for Celestial Power Armour, do I need to spend motes attuning to the gauntlets as well as the armour (since it says use the statistics of Power Maces, but are still part of the armour, I wasn't too sure)?

    Casting a vote for "Weddings are an Act of Villainy." The KoC threads already have their share of Essence jokes, doing so with this thread too would just be redundant.

    I think you only need to attune to the armor.

    I'll just note that attuning to your armor mid-battle is not a good idea, as it takes 20 minutes to attune to an artifact, during which you have to practice with and handle the artifact. Far better to attune to it once and wear it every day to prevent the attunement lapse.

    Either that, or be willing to only use the artifact for things you are notified for well in advance.

    Weddings are fine with me.

    Yeah, only problem would come if I start failing Fatigue rolls. Then again, I guess I could just grab the Second Excellency for Resistance. CPA is only Fatigue 1, so it'll just cost me 2 motes, and then it's not a problem any more. That would work, right?

    I will note that weddings are not an act of villainy. Exquisite Bride Obsession is an Act of Villainy, which does not require a wedding, only marriage and an Intimacy in favor of the marriage.

    You don't have to wear it all the time. Just once per day, to prevent the attunement lapse.

    That, or you can get Armored Scout's Invigoration.

    But the wedding itself also counts for Exquisite Bride Obsession, just not anything afterward.

    Marriage, not necessarily wedding. You can marry your would-be spouse without a wedding, after all.

    Out here in Utah, marriages without weddings happen from time to time. Most people out here don't like to advertise that they couldn't have a temple ceremony.

    I find it funny that both Infernals and Sidereals both have incentives to get involved in horribly dysfunctional marriages. I have a mental image of a Fiend and a Chosen of Serenity both trying to take advantage of the same horrible, horrible relationship for game mechanics reasons, and it. is. amazing.
