Weapon Tracing Method
Cost: 4 or 8 motes Type: Simple (DV-1, Speed 6) Keywords: Combo-Ok, Obvious Duration: Instant Minimum Craft: 4 Minimum Essence: 3 Prerequisites: Craftsman Needs No Tools, Durability-Enhancing Technique
“I am the bone of my sword.”
This charm summons forth a weapon and grants an attack, effectively designing it within the mind and crafting it into existence in a mere second. Such weapons are often extravagant and take the form of artifacts, though their power is lesser and not lasting, as they last only long enough to make one attack before shattering back into nothingness. Any ability matching the weapons form can be used for them and melee weapons can be thrown to a range of 30 yards if wished, but otherwise the shape of the weapon is irrelevant, its statistics generated by the design they are built from. Similar to glorious solar saber, divide the sum of the Exalt’s Intelligence + Craft score between accuracy and damage of the weapon. The exalt may pay 8 motes rather than 4, to summon forth a second weapon, which allows them to make two attacks at no penalties. Alternately, a bow and arrow may be formed, which allows a single attack with an extended range of 150 yards. This charm can be combod with charms of other abilities, depending which ability you are using to fight with the traced weapon(s).
Craft The Enduring Image
Cost: 4 or 8 motes, 1wp Type: Simple Keywords: Combo-Ok, Obvious Duration: Scene Minimum Craft: 5 Minimum Essence: 3 Prerequisites: Weapon Tracing Method
“Steel is my body and fire is my blood.”
This charm works similarly to Weapon Tracing Method, except it does not grant attacks, and the weapon(s) formed last for a scene. All weapons formed by this charm have Speed 5 and Rate 2 and the user must split his Intelligence + Craft score between Accuracy, Defense and Damage. These weapons may still be thrown as normal, and bows may also be made, in which case divide the users Intelligence + Craft score between Accuracy, Damage, and Range, starting with a base Range of 150 yards, and adding 50 yards to it with each point dedicated. Note however, that this charm does not provide any arrows to use with such a bow, though the later Endless Weapon Technique can. This charm can be combod with charms of other abilities, depending which ability you are using to fight with the traced weapon(s).
Strengthen The Image
Cost: - Type: Permanent Keywords: None Duration: Instant Minimum Craft: 5 Minimum Essence: 4 Prerequisites: Craft The Enduring Image
“I have created over a thousand blades.”
The exalt has grown accustomed to tracing weapons, and can now enhance them during the creation process, rooting out impurities and weakness to make the image stronger. This charm permanently enhances both Craft the Enduring Image and Weapon Tracing Method, letting the exalt add his Perception to the Intelligence and Craft pool before it is split up into statistics.
The Seven Rings That Cover The Fiery Heavens
Cost: 8 motes Type: Reflexive Keywords: Combo-Ok, Obvious Duration: Instant Minimum Craft: 5 Minimum Essence: 4 Prerequisites: Craft The Enduring Image
“Unknown to death, nor known to life.”
The exalt summons forth a mighty impenetrable shield, manifesting a prismatic arrangement of seven flower petals, each capable of perfectly blocking various means of attack. This charm provides a perfect parry against an attack, even if they cannot normally be parried, such as if the attack is immaterial.
This charm has one of the four flaws of perfection.
Endless Weapon Technique
Cost: 1 or 2 motes Type: Permanent Keywords: None Duration: Instant Minimum Craft: 5 Minimum Essence: 5 Prerequisites: Craft The Enduring Image, Strengthen The Image
“Have withstood pain, to create many weapons.”
With this charm, an exalt with mastery over tracing is hardly never without a weapon. While Craft The Enduring Image is active, he may reflexively activate this charm (which does not count as a charm use) and re-trace the weapons back to his hands, thus making him practically immune to disarmament and incapable of having his weapons permanently destroyed. Each use of this charm costs 1 mote, or 2 if tracing two weapons. Alternately, if Craft the Enduring Image was used to summon a bow, this charm may be used to summon arrows for it at a cost of 1 mote per arrow.
Cost: 20 motes, 2 willpower Type: Simple (Speed 5) Keywords: Obvious Duration: Scene Minimum Craft: 5 Minimum Essence: 5 Prerequisites: The Seven Rings That Cover The Fiery Heavens, Endless Weapon Technique
“So, as I pray, Unlimited Blade Works.”
This charm is the ultimate technique of tracing, allowing the creation of a world as a perfect aid to the exalt. When activated the solar’s essence spills out into the surrounding area, dragging any sentient being within Ess * 5 yrds into the reality marble, which takes whatever form the exalt wishes, and is practically infinite in size given its nature. However, it must obey the general trends of creation, and thus a world made of acid would not be allowed. Examples include a clockwork world with massive gears and forges in the distance, and an infinite number of bladed weapons resting in the floor.
Mechanics wise, this charm creates a demiplane in elsewhere where the exalt may battle his enemies. The nature of the plane is perfectly suited to the solars tracing magic, and lowers all costs of tracing charms by Essence motes, to a minimum of 0. Against a high essence reality marble, the best tactic may be simply evading the exalt, or of course, not getting caught in the area of effect at all.-
Flight of the Broken Phantasm
Cost: 10 motes, 1wp Type: Supplemental Keywords: Obvious Duration: Instant Minimum Craft: 6 Minimum Essence: 6 Prerequisites: Endless Weapon Technique
This charm enhances the exalts previous skills of tracing, allowing imaged weapons to be altered as they are created, transforming them into ammunition for other weapons, while simultaneously keeping all their original strength and powers. This allows an exalt to trace a weapon as per the standard guidelines for Weapon Tracing Method. Instead of being used normally however, this weapon is then modified into a form of ammunition, allowing an equivalent of a daiklave to be fired from a bow, shot from a sling etc, for massive damage. Creates ammunition with stats equal to your normal tracing pool of intelligence, craft (and perception), these stack with the statistics of the weapon they are fired from as normal.
