Dual Slaying Stance</b>
<b>Cost: 1m Duration: Instant Type: Extra Action (Combo-OK) Minimum Melee: 2 Minimum Essence: 2 Prerequisite: One Weapon, Two Blows
Once the Solar Exalted becomes sufficiently familiar with his weaponry, his ability to attack with multiple weapons becomes greatly increased. So long as the Exalt carries a weapon in each hand, he may make a flurry of attacks without incurring multiple action penalties, and with a DV penalty equal only to the highest penalty incurred. Each of the weapons the character is using must be used once and only once in this flurry, and any off-hand penalty is ignored for this action. He may not further split his action for the flurry.
<b>Cost: 1m Duration: Instant Type: Reflexive (Combo-OK) Minimum Melee: 3 Minimum Essence: 2 Prerequisite: One Weapon, Two Blows
The Solar warrior's ability to attack and defend himself simultaneously with both his weilded weapons is greatly enhanced. The Solar's total Defense bonus is equal to the sum of his weapons' Defense bonuses, rather than merely the highest. Additionally, all Onslaught and coordinated attack penalties to his DV are halved, rounded down.
Two Swords Technique</b>
<b>Cost: 5m Duration: One Scene Type: Simple Minimum Melee: 4 Minimum Essence: 2 Prerequisite: Sun-and-Moon Method
The character allows Essence to guide his hands for him in battle, granting him an unsurpassed puissance when fighting with a weapon in each hand. The Parry DV penalty for performing any Attack or Flurry is reduced by 2, to a minimum of 0, and the Speed of each weapon is reduced by 1.
Steel Devil Style</b>
<b>Cost: 5m, 1 wp Duration: One Scene Type: Simple Minimum Melee: 5 Minimum Essence: 4 Prerequisite: Ready in Eight Directions Stance, Two Swords Technique
For the remainder of the scene, the Solar may attack with impunity, certain of his ability to parry and riposte any oncoming attack. The character reduces all onslaught or coordinated attack penalties to his Parry DV to 0 for the remainder of the scene, and may perform one free Melee counterattack per tick.
Cleared, as the Charms included here are pretty much useless for Second Edition.
But they're just fine for those of us who havn't GOT it yet or won't be using it because we're still playing with the first edition!
-- Darloth would like them back, please?
- Check Ialdabaoth/FirstEdition - I'll also try to put any First Edition versions of relevant charms there.
I'm not sure about Dual Slaying Stance - can you only make a total of two attacks?
- Is that better? And, well, sort of. You can only make a total of one attack per weapon, so it may as well be two attacks - unless you're some long-toed Haltan freak who can do cartwheels while holding three swords, in which case you could conceivably pull off a three-attack flurry with a Stunt. - Ialdabaoth
Nice job on SDS, very smooth complement to FLB.
The rest of the tree looks really nice. I'm strongly inclined to gank these for my game - one of my players has been making frequent noises about going all two-weapony... - Hapushet
- Thanks! - Ialdabaoth
