These alocations can not be altered until the Lawgiver improves their melee score. This charm can be taken multiple times to creat distinct weapons. The spending of 4 additional motes when activating this charm lets the Solar summon paired blades. Against creatures of Darkness this blade does aggravated damage.

Which came first? The Unconquered Sun or the sun? The answer is the former and with a powerful hand sign he did cause the sun's fires to ignite into being. Instead though the Solar performs a slightly different hand sign and then four more. His anima goes to the 16+ mote range of anima flare and his weapon ignites in the flames that light the world. The fire and light of his weapon grows steadily until it burts and consumes. The turn it is used and for the next 4 turns the weapon gains the Piercing Tag and does aggravated damage to creatures of darkness. On the Solar's next turn and each turn after the blaze makes it hard to gaze at the Solar and so those who attack or defend against his attacks take a penalty of Essence in dice to their pools. On the third turn the flames are enough to count as a source of Environmental Damage to Creatures of Darkness within Essence * 2 yards with Damage of Permanent Essence in Aggravated per action and Trauma of Essence in Lethal. This lasts for the next 2 turns. On the fourth turn the weapon is more wreath of Solar flames permits the Solar to strike at any target within Essence * 10 yards with the weapon, lines of fire hitting where they guide their weapon. On the fifth turn it continues to benifit of all the previous stages until the end of the Solar's turn. At that point the flames burst free of the weapon in wave of fire and light.

Having mastered himself and mastered his weapon all the world is like a gleaming sword to the Solar. Anything he picks up can be a weapon to kill. From a spoon to a table leg or a rolled newspaper he can duel with those bearing steel against him. The Solar who knows this charm can treat any non-weapon she holds as a perfect chopping sword. If there is a typical weapon he normally uses any such weapon's stats can be used instead.

Master Has No Peer

Keywords: Martial-Ready
Duration: Permanent
Prerequisite Charms: Any Melee Excellency

It is not enough that the Lawgivers be the greatest of warriors but they must also have no peer in whatever weapon they have chosen to master. To try to match them in their field will only lead to humiliation. Whenever the Solar faces off against someone whose own weapons or combat style would count for the Solar's Specialty in their Melee ability count the Solar's Specialty twice for its bonus. Should a Solar have no Melee Specialty when this charm is bought they may count themself as having a one point specialty of their choice. This dot counts for all pool calculation purposes but no others and should the Solar want can be bought as a proper specialty at any time as a Training effect. This granted dot fades away when the Solar buys an actual specialty. The dice granted by this charm do not count for dice caps.

What's the point of Glorious Warstrider Armament? It doesn't look like it does anything that Glorious Solar Saber doesn't already do. ~Kukla
One thing warstrider weapons are good for is damage and lots of it. Thats the point here. -BogMod
Yes, but... It doesn't do any more damage than Glorious Solar Saber. You can already get twice your melee rating in points to divide amongst damage, defense, and accuracy if you have a speed 5 GSS. -Kukla
It does do more damage. For each point you spend to damage you get 3L. So while you get the same points anything spent into damage is much more effective. GSS at melee 5 could give you 10L while this can give you 30L. -BogMod
