    I thought someone would have mentioned the Lunar Easter egg by now, since we're on the subject of pants.

    Gryffon has made some mention of redoing the picture with the new Doctor and some of the newer characters. I believe River Song may have been mentioned.

    I know this is Doctor Who we're talking about, but this immediately made me think of the cast of Firefly.

    Mal is Sol, Jayne is Luna, Wash is Mercury, Inara is Venus, Zoe is Mars, Book is Jupiter, and River is Saturn. And Kaylee is Autobot, obviously.

    It's only said that he refused it, and then goes into multiple possible reasons as to why, including "He was fated to do something horrible, but only after he should have died." which is a good opening for Chejop KeDeathlord.

    When, at a given rough tier of demigodness, you're more demigodly than all the other demigods.

    Your mileage will vary between games.

    High-power Hearthstones, one of those abilities is that they auto-attune to whomever's in contact with them.

    They're also in a hearthstone-poor setting, making them even more potent in contrast.

    One thing to keep in mind would be that permanent Essence rating jokes are already used in Keychain threads, so we should probably go with something else here.

    First of all, Chaos-Repelling Pattern doesn't actually protect you from Shaping. It makes the area around you effectively part of Creation. If a Terrestrial's going to punch your soul off with martial arts, Chaos-Repelling Pattern will do nothing to stop it.

    The Charm you're looking for is Integrity-Protecting Prana.

    Second of all, it isn't (nor should it be) that simple; Integrity-Protecting Prana is an Integrity 1 24-hour Shaping defense with no prerequisites that only costs 5m, 1wp; chances are that it'd have to be mechanically re-tooled to be appropriate for a Sidereal. And no, I don't just mean nerfing it because nothing gets Charms as good as Solars', I mean that it should be just plain work differently.

    They cannot make one though, because as of canon, they cannot create new charms. They can make a martial arts style based around reflecting shaping attacks though.

    Not entirely true. Sidereal charms simply have to be written into the loom by the maidens. Not an easy task, but it is possible to make new charms.

    What is the sum total that being Enlightened grants a mortal? As far as I can see it's access to:
    • Terrestrial Martial Arts
    • Terrestrial Circle Sorcery
    • An enhancement to Thaumaturgy
    • Using artifacts/attuning to manses


    Is that everything?

    They're no longer considered a mortal for charm effects. This is pretty useful.

    You forgot Shadowlands Circle Necromancy, for the aspiring sorcerer who would like to have less options at his disposal.

    Also, I'm suddenly getting an idea for my Devil Tiger's charm tree. "Colorful Egg Full of [Nouns]". A crafting charm that allows you to lay eggs full of stuff! Like "Colorful Egg Full of [Pants]", or "Colorful Egg Full of [Daiklaves]".
