Vicious Tyrant Strike</I>
Cost: 8 motes Duration: Instant Type: Supplemental Min. Strength: 4 Min. Ess.: 3 Prereq.: Ferocious Biting Sword, Tiger Claw Swat
The Lunar floods his attack with pure beastial power, shearing through enemy weapons and battering through flesh and bone. The Lunar makes an attack with a hand-to-hand weapon. If the Lunar or anyone attempting to parry his attack uses a mortal weapon with a base damage lower than the Lunar's Strength, it shatters as a result of the attack or parry. The raw damage of this attack cannot be soaked below the Lunar's Strength in dice by non-perfect soaks.
<I>Dismissive Lion Swat</I>
Cost: 5 motes, 1 Willpower Duration: Instant Type: Supplemental Min. Dexterity: 4 Min. Ess.: 3 Prereq.: Striking Mospid Method, Knowing Weapon Technique
The Lunar strikes so quickly, so cruelly that only the utmost of skill can turn aside her blade. This Charm may only be used against a target before that target's initiative. The attack enhanced by this Charm cannot be partially defended against-- if a dodge or parry does not completely stop the attack, it is completely ignored.
<I>Hummingbird Wing Slice</I>
Cost: 10 motes Duration: Instant Type: Supplemental Min. Dexterity: 5 Min. Ess.: 4 Prereq.: Vicious Tyrant Strike, Dismissive Lion Swat
The Lunar strikes faster than the eye can see, fast enough that even those who manage to get out of the way are thrown off balance. The Lunar makes an attack with a hand-to-hand weapon. This attack cannot be dodged or parried without Charms. If this attack is dodged or parried (successfully or no), the defending character suffers a dice pool penalty to all actions equal to the Lunar's Dexterity for the rest of the turn. If a perfect dodge or parry is used, the defender does not suffer this effect.
<I>Hammer Shrimp Crush</I>
Cost: 12 motes Duration: Instant Type: Supplemental Min. Dexterity: 5 Min. Ess.: 4 Prereq.: Vicious Tyrant Strike, Dismissive Lion Swat
The Lunar swings his hand-to-hand weapon with no factors in mind but pure, raw, Lunar brutality. Damage from an attack enhanced by this Charm is unsoakable by soaks that are not explicitly perfect, such as Invulnerable Moonsilver Carapace or divine armor (GoD sidebar, page 20).
These are all extremely cool, and seem in-theme as well. Dismissive Lion Swat in particular is amazingly nice, and seems typical of lunars. The tree convergances I'm not sure about, but lunar charmtrees give me headaches in organization anyway, so I don't think you should worry too much about that.
I assume Vicious Tyrant Strike doesn't work against weapons of the 5MM? Otherwise very nice ideas on ways to go with their higher charms. -BogMod
- It doesn't, it says 'mortal weapons' for a reason. You have to be a supernatural to use a 5MM weapon. -TheMyriadOfShades
- Missed that. -BogMod
