Off the top of my head, I'd call it a major crafting project that can only be attempted in the Demon City. We may give it more attention in the future.

Nope. 10char

Hi Robert and Eric, I’ve been away from the forums for quite some time unfortunately as my normal TTRPG group started focusing on starwars but I wanted to saw that it is really amazing seeing everything that has already happened since the last time I was here with repect to the dragon blooded book.

I unfortunatey missed the Kickstarter but I am very excited to see its successful completion, and the question I have pertains to it.

Im very interested in seeing how things work in the dragon blooded charm sets and rules, espeacially when it comes to dragon blooded craft, and it seems like there are already a lot of people who have access to that information. Is that then backer only accessible information or is there a way that other members of the community can access it while we wait for the books and the pdf to come out?

Thankyou so so much for you tome and you continued dedication to the community, it is very much appreciated.
I don't know of any official way for non-backers to access the backer previews.

I suspect Lunars and Sidereals will end up on similar footing, if not exactly equal.

In the setting, it's not harder. Charms aren't things-in-themselves; the Occult Charm prerequisite simply reflects the fact that Dragon-Blooded sorcerers, or precocious mortal sorcerers who Exalt as Dragon-Blooded, are going to be superhumanly skilled in the secret ways of mysticism.

From a design perspective, sorcery is extremely good for Dragon-Blooded. Putting a Charm prerequisite on it discourages Every Dragon-Blooded PC Ever from dipping it.

Sorry for misunderstanding you, then. Still, are there any splats that will be more well-suited to throwing (all) the good stuff on an attack? Sids because they can combine multiple styles together with unarmed attacks, maybe?
No, being able to throw all your Charms on one attack is something we try to avoid, because it minimizes decision-making.

Deadly Beastman Transformation, you can already use artifact weapons with, you just gotta suck up diminished resonance.

Animal forms...well, they've got a fun Charm for that.

Roughly the same size.

I don't think Lunars have a below-average number.

No. Lunars who use Martial Arts or Evocations are losing access to, or at least putting obstacles in the way of other sources of power in their Charms (animal shapeshifting and Deadly Beastman Transformation, respectively).

The Topics of:

Demons

Gods

Elementals

Raksha
Demons, gods, and elementals should all get coverage in the smaller books between Exigents and Sidereals, assuming our planned pitches get approved.

Storyteller call; at the very least, the Impervious Sphere isn't going to offer any cover. It'll take a chunk out of the Sphere, but not enough to collapse it entirely. The Storyteller can adjudicate any effects this has.

[*]What happens if I use Death Ray on an Impervious Sphere of Water? The sorcerer is behind full cover, and thus ranged attacks are impossible, but Death Ray obliterates cover.
I think it's gonna boil that Impervious Sphere into perviousness. Being inside a sphere of boiling water probably sucks a whole bunch, at the Storyteller's discretion.

[*]What happens if I use Beckoning That Which Stirs The Sky when someone else has cast Rain of Doom? Can is dispel the Rain of Doom?
Nope.

While I don't expect we'll discuss it, we'd definitely go with First Edition's take if we did.

The shinma aren't going to be written out of canon, but they'll be getting far, far less focus than they did in Second Edition.

What would be an example of a creation wide web of miraculous infrastructure?
The first example to come to mind is the Creation-spanning network of Gates of Auspicious Passage.
