As far as I can understand, they can legally be used together on a Join Battle, since SCI explicitly says that it can be combined with JB enhancers from other abilities, but how does this play out?
Will each rolled Ten trigger the effect causing two non-successes (assuming you have enough non-successes) to be re-rolled? Or do you just pick one of the charms' re-roll effects?
Awakening Eye adds a full (Perception + Awareness) Excellency, and rerolls a failed die for every 10 you get. Swarm-Culling Instinct rerolls another failed die for each 10.
If multiple cascading re-roll effects can in fact apply to the same roll, should they create separate pools of cascading re-rolls? So that for each Ten rolled Two non-successes would be re-rolled as two separate cascading re-roll pools, where any Tens showing up in the re-rolls triggering the cascading re-roll effect of the charm the re-roll "sub-pool" belongs to?
For most combinations of these effects, I'd say no, but because Awakening Eye specifically cares about when dice rerolled by it, I think it makes sense to do so here.
If the character also has "Sensory Acuity Prana" active, how would the double 9s and re-roll 6s features interact with this? I assume that the doubling of 9s would be counted against all the final faces of the dice one all re-rolling has been completed? But would SAP's re-rolling of 6s apply only to 6s rolled in the initial roll? Or would any 6s just be rolled again until no 6s are left, and if any of these end up as Tens, they would trigger additional "cascading re-rolls" for either both AE and SCI (if the 6 originated from the originally rolled dice pool) or for the charm the "sub-pool" the re-rolled 6 originated in?
Double 9s doesn't really interact with rerolling—it's just, if you roll a 9, that's two successes. Doesn't matter whether it's the initial roll or a rerolled die.
With rerolling 6s, if you roll a 6, you reroll it. As with double 9s, doesn't matter whether it's the initial roll or a reroll. If a rerolled 6 comes up a 10, that 10 will prompt rerolls accordingly.
I have to say that this can get rather complicated.. :P
