Question about Black Claw Style!
One of our Circle has been using Torn Lotus Defense, while in Black Claw Form, quite a lot. Their interpretation is that the counterattack portion applies to everyone that would be affected by the influence roll.
Thus, she can gather up to her Manipulation in Initiative for each enemy or bystander.
My take on it has been that the influence roll might hit every enemy and bystander, but that the counterattack probably should only work against somebody who's actually attacking.
My question is: Which is the correct interpretation?
It explicitly says it doesn't apply the withering damage against anyone but the attacker.
