This would be the Malfeas High School shard (although I'd rather draw my magical high school combat oeuvre from Utena than Kill la Kill).

At some point I should tell a story involving a human-sized hamster wheel, an airship, a Solar physician on hand, and the cursed city of Denandsor.

Sidereal Stealth. Untethering the thread of his destiny from the bounds of space, the Sidereal may compress it infinitely to find concealment within the most unlikely of places—the space between a teacup's bottom and the warm liquid that fills it, between the pages of a book, or behind a blinking eye. Unfolding to reveal one's self from this stealth is generally too wonky to make a sneak attack, but it delivers a substantial advantage Joining Battle upon ambushing an enemy.

New Charms: Black Star Zodiac (can't be a Underworld Sidereal thing) or The Beginning is the End

I could see reasons for such Charms and places where they could exist, but the existence of sorcery consigns them to nichedom unless they are doing something else important on top of that. I don't think Solars, the masters of sorcery, would have them. Lunars...I could see an argument for, I guess?

I suspect the daiklave was a human creation. Dragon Kings, Jadeborn, Alaun, Lintha, etc. all definitely had artifact weapons, but probably conforming to very different aesthetics.

If you wanna track NPC xp, there's a table in the Storytelling chapter for that, although man would that get book-keeping heavy if you did it for every mortal. You can use it as a limiter for fast-training effects, at least.

So while you can enhance an EBA with Thrown charms, or with Archery Charms, you can't enhance it with both (making the stacking question irrelevant). As for Firearms, allowing Firearms Charmns to enhance EBAs would be a perfectly valid houserule.
I hereby upgrade that from houserule to stunt-canon. But only if you make a finger-gun when you shoot the elemental bolt.

Out of curiosity however, what exactly is wrong with using skype, and it is skype specifically that is an issue or VoIP programs in general?
It just working super poorly in general. People losing connection, not being able to connect in the first place, etc. It's the only VoIP program I'm familiar with, so I can't advise as to others.

Skype voice chat is...pretty much the worst. It is just so awful. I'd recommend sticking to text chat, which has worked pretty well for games in the past.

Techniques generally rest firmly at the conceptual level of mortal capability, or at least, mortal-stunting-something-awesome capability.

Invisible attacks are even more transparent than usual. Light goes straight through them!

Also re: Sandstorm Wind Attack vs. Terrestrial Charms. I've written a Dragon-Blooded Charm that is the swoopy air slash thing. It feels completely different from Sandstorm Wind Attack. Really not concerned about overlap here, or really, anywhere between Solars and Dragon-Blooded. They've got rich enough veins of conceptual space to mine for that to not be a concern, though that isn't really something that's been delivered on before.

Raksha Cup. The raksha plays muse to a mortal, unstopping the inner wells of their creativity and unlocking great creative potential within them...delicious, delicious creative potential. For best flavor, wait until victim has fulfilled a Motivation based on great artistic achievement before consuming their soul.

Next: Hounds of Baying Midnight or Spinning the Murder Bone

Mostly to give Kimberian Illuminati types some more social magic to play around with.

Railstrider that entire idea is impractical and implausible and I love it
