    Solars commanding a bond (it's a Presence charm) they have the authoritative role in certainly seems in theme. It's not like when the Solars were created Sol waved one of his hands and out popped the entire Solar charmset, complete with date-rape charms. They're techniques that can be developed within incredibly broad thematic lines.

    And if this is a moral thing, have you seen the other UMI charms Solars get? Solars get a ton of really mindrapey charms.

    Huh.

    So why is Adorjan red, out of curiosity? Is it just because Scourge anima or is there something actually saying that girl-Adorjan is red?

    You'll note that (at least for Ebby, presumably for the rest of the Yozis as well) when acting outside of their Excellencies, all their Attributes and Abilities are rated at zero; that certainly makes things difficult.

    Also, since she can't use her perfect defense when she's not moving, that likewise gives her as much incentive as possible to keep moving.

    They can spend willpower for a single success, though.

    Presumably it's akin to causing a mental fracture and they're still really, really incompetent, but they can do it a little.

    Well, it's more that I don't know how to make a more brassy color on a set of RGB sliders . I'd like to make my own Yonies at some point (I already made a kind of weird looking Adorjan that needs work), but I found this pony making program, and so I decided to whip up a few on the spot; see how close I could get them.

    Unrelated, so, we already have Malfeas/Swillin and Isidoros/Szoreny pairings. I propose we need one more fanon Yozi pairing. I suggest Cecelyne/Ebon Dragon.

    Thank ye.

    Oh, yeah, and we've gotten a bit more Lunar errata.

    Quote Originally Posted by hatewheel
    We worked out the following Charm this afternoon and I decided to post it. This errata is a preview and is subject to change.

    Foe-Marking Style
    Cost: 1m or 4m
    Keywords: Combo-OK, Crippling, Merged (Charisma)
    Prerequisite Charms: None
    Replace the text of the Charm with the following:
    It sometimes suits the Lunar Exalted to mark their enemies for the world to see. Foe-Marking Style supplements an attempt to inflict a scar on an opponent, either through a called shot or normal lethal damage. Wounds caused by this Charm do not heal normally for the Exalted, leaving scars instead of healing without a blemish. If the Lunar spends one mote, she may imbue a scar with an emotional tenor of her choosing—for example, rage or humiliation for a scar delivered in the heat of battle, fear for a scar delivered as the Lunar stalks an opponent through darkened alleys, or lust for claw-marks raked down a paramour’s back. So long as the scar endures, the Lunar enjoys one two automatic successes on all future social attacks directed at the target which exploit this emotional tenor (intimidation attempts for fear, browbeating for humiliation, seduction attempts for lust, and so forth).
    By paying four motes, the Lunar embeds far more complex magic into the scar, creating a potent message which impresses itself upon all who see the mark. This scar not only announces the Lunar’s identity and provides a palpable sense of her power, but also defines the context of her relationship with the scar-bearer to all viewers. Thus a Lunar might mark a favored son before sending him into a den of thieves, making it clear to one and all that he is protected by a mighty Exalt; or scar a hated enemy, communicating to all who see the mark that any who offers aid or succor to the one so marked will earn her wrath. Artful ‘marriage scars’ created with this Charm were fashionable among the Solar Exalted at times during the First Age.
    Merged: An identical Charm exists in Charisma.



    Marriage Scars
    In the First Age, many Lunars felt a certain thrill at using the Foe-Marking Style to reveal their sexual juxtaposition to some of the mightiest heroes in Creation. Scars like these formed an erotic provocation to those who could read them, announcing openness to orgy or showing a Solar as completely off-limits: the sole territory of his mate.

    So how do you determine the speed of Sail-based vehicles? (Such as a landship, for example.)

    I'm having a lot of trouble figuring this one out.


    EDIT: @Xefas & Mr.Bookworm

    Thank you very much! That's super helpful, and I've been searching for a while for that information. Now to attempt to adapt it to a Landship Pirate vessel.. Let's see, 60 feet long equals...

    Pg. 264 of the core book. A sailing vessel has a speed of 6 mph. Not very good, but I'm pretty sure that's the best you're going to get in canon.

    EDIT: No, wait, Xefas is right. Scroll of King has far better stats, starting on pg. 144.

    What are some good artifacts for a martial artist? I've found Perfect Kata Bracers, and Silk Armour, but other than that..
    He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the centre of time and can see the turn of the universe. And... he's wonderful.

    It depends a lot on the style of the artist, but a hearthstone bracer is almost always useful, also unless you really want to fight with your bare hands, get an artifact version of a form weapon of your choice.

    Yeah, if you grab Hearthstone Bracers, a Precision of Form Gemstone (3-dot Sidereal hearthstone in Oadenol's Codex) might be nice. After you use a Form-type charm, all the charms in that style cost 2 motes less, but it can't reduce it beyond half and locks you into using the style that the Form-type charm is from unless you switch Form-type charms.
