Alright, looks like the next step is to rewind to the information Mnemon relayed to Kejak's agent. Whether that be seeing what Mnemon saw, or spectating a retelling after the fact. I'll see if I can get the next post up in the morning.

Mirrors opposed to mirrors seem endless. The Sidereal can activate this Charm in any place with at least a square yard’s worth of total reflective surfaces or with distinct, easily heard echoes. As long as she has these reflections to work from, none of her Martial Arts Charms cost any Essence at all.
Psychie Psychie Just to verify something, this Charm, Echoes of Infinity, in my Obsidian Shards of Infinity style applies only to the MA Charms of that style, correct? I think it would be too overpowering to work with all my MA Charms of any style.

I will concur with you in saying that this will only work for Charms of OSoI only, and any Excellencies you use with this style.

OSoI style is really nasty until someone (*cough* the Yozis *cough*) figures out what it is and how it works, and blankets everything in sand or darkness, or screams so loud it shatters every reflective surface for miles/glows so hot it melts every reflective surface to slag/etc. Then it's much less terrifying.

So many scene longs to pick from... it's really tempting to just open up with the full Prismatic Arrangement of Creation set, and Without Strategy Arrangement. I may forgo the "Deadly Starmetal Offensive" effect though... Aesthetically it sounds hideous and doesn't do much statistically.

Dao-Cleaving Insight was going to look gorgeous in Four Magical Materials Form, thank you very much. Those nails alone were going to be fabulous. You're going to fit right in when we go to Autochthonia. Just tell them you're the only all-material Alchemical Autochthon ever made.

Hmm... I was torn on whether or not to use it, and between rereading all the forms I guess I mixed up some of the effects. I'd thought this one had the higher essence for charm conflicts effect. I was wrong on that one. I'll correct it.

Edit: For what it's worth, the Essence for the purpose of charms conflict was seen as a big deal for using Victory of the Cheat to move high essence opponents on the battlefield.

Oh, I completely agree, the essence increase for Charm roll-offs is amazing, but that doesn't come from Games of Divinity Form, does it? GoDF is 'I'm so pretty everything you ever look at from now on will be ugly by comparison Form' if I recall.

That's correct, I just had it mixed up at first. It should be Soul Fire Shaper Form, which I thought was mostly just free activations of Essence disruption abilities, but evidently the artificial essence bump was there too.

Tien could get that Hearthstone that reduces the cost of all Forms by 2m. Insight had that one purely because of how many forms you end up using.

Do you both already do aggravated damage to Creatures of Darkness? If not, I'll put that one up for you. I figure they're Akuma so they ought to count.

I don't think I have passive Agg. I do have the Snake style charm that deals agg to any opponent iirc.

I'll double check the hearthstones when time permits, but I did limit the scope to 5 dot stones per the charm. Gem of Madness, Loyalty Stone, and Withering Gem were contenders. Ended up with Perfect Mobility for faster DV refreshes.

Wow! I didn't know snake granted aggravated damage to everything. Horrific Wreathe is 4m flat for the scene, but I won't bother if you both have it covered.

Oh, I didn't mean as part of manse and demense, just in general. It's only 2 dots. Perfection of Form or something like that. Clearly meant for DBs but saves PAoC 8-10m.

Now for the fun part...

rolling for Without Strategy Arrangement.

Alright, his attacks don't get adjusted by it.

Let's see... Net Parry DV is Half of 6 Dexterity + 7 Martial Arts + 3 Specialty + 6 Perfected Kata Bracers + 2 Unarmed Base Defense + 3 Five Jade Fury's Effect from Four Materials Form... So 27/2 rounds up to 14... I'll use Absence for 2m to overcome the penalty and parry Psychie Psychie ,

Sorry, Tien's math and effects get a little dense.

Hey, I just remembered that Renna has a Defend Other action available to her to try and protect Euphemia from the knife attack. Is it too late to try something to keep her from getting perforated?

Euphemia is reflexively Defend Othering both of you with Dodge while you're within 18 yards of her. If an attack doesn't have at least 20 successes/isn't perfect you can both ignore it if you want to. You don't have to spend motes. Euphemia's Dodge DV of 20 will keep her from getting perforated here. She can't actually see the incoming attacks, but it doesn't really matter because fate goes to great lengths to ensure that so long as she keeps dancing basically nothing can hit her or anyone she's protecting. Even if she is hit, so long as the hit isn't instantly fatal to her 30+ soak (dealing 7+ HLs of damage would do her in unless I get that hearthstone that halves all post soak damage) she can shrug almost anything off. She's a pretty good party tank + support.

Ok, wasn't sure what your DV was and if you needed a defense from someone. Just trying to keep you safe!
