Re: Battle Plans and Groups

Let me point out that anyone with War 2+ would inform that trenches are not a good idea, for various reasons. They'd likely suggest simple, above ground, fortifications out of soil or wood. Trenches were used in WW1 because of the field coverage of rifles and then-new machine guns creating effective...

Re: Jade Mountain Style; A Question

Jade Mountain's Style offers an explicit list of weapons, and includes one artifact among those - the (standard) goremaul; it does not include "and their artifact equivalents". However bad the book is written (it is pretty bad, yes), this doesn't feel like an error, just a very specific li...

Re: Sidereal College XP Costs

Yes, this should be handled.

I don't know if a database change is viable at this point, but an XP request (with a proper breakdown) should be handled without much issue.

Re: Solar Counter Attack vs. Vengeful Riposte

I don't see why "fairness and good play" comes to such discussions... Mirror Charms are not always identical. Vengeful Riposte has been touched by Errata, and it has remained as Combo-Basic; I haven't seen any comments from authors or the errata team about it being an error, either. Plus, ...

Re: Arms of Multiple Manipulation -- in combat

This question feels like asking "What Charms does my Daiklave share? Can it use one Form while I use another?" Don't overthink it. The arms are no less a tool than anything else your character can use - you use your Charms. If you can use such with a weapon or a tool, it's a fair assumptio...

Re: New Book from Tears' Publishing

This book sees an unusual amount of demand, considering its subject matter.

All original sources quickly find their way into some bookshelf or another, and when the demand does not abate, handwritten copies begin to surface.

Re: Grappling

Ah, now I see what you meant. It's an interesting idea, but it further adds complexity to an already complex maneuver, so it's not an ideal fix for everyday usage. I can certainly see STs requesting such immediate control roll in situations like the ones mentioned, however, or similar - like fightin...

Re: Grappling

The clinch is an incredibly potent maneuver. In most systems - people always seem to have trouble balancing it, and you often see it as "nonexistent", "weak to the point of irrelevancy", or "overpowered". In Exalted, it's geared towards the latter, especially if someone...

Re: Armor limitation

I cannot find my references at the moment, so this may not be entirely accurate, but if I or someone else remember, I'll clarify. Power Armor that appears in the books is considered Heavy armor, with the following exceptions: Deadly Transformation Armor is considered medium. Armor of the Unseen Assa...

Re: Earth Dragon Style

Just keep in mind that the errata explicitly mentions
"This Charm's bonuses are dice added by a Charm, not an enhancement to the character's natural ratings."

It's less useful for Lunars than it used to be - still pretty potent, though.
