So a question for our ST. Would you rule that the Pectoral of Resplendent Speeches and Tongue of the Serpent Prince are stacking the same stat or not? Similarly, would you rule that the Jewel of the Lawgiver's Authority and the Jewel of the Desert Bodhisattva are stacking the same stat or are they applied to different stats?

Based on the response I'll edit the sheet. I might need to edit some of the equipment anyway.

Jewel of Lawgiver's Authority stacks with all three of the other items.

Tongue of the Serpent Prince, Jewel of the Desert Bodhisattva, and Pectoral of Resplendent Speeches all add dice to social rolls. They probably won't/shouldn't combine those dice ever, but it's worth noting that they activate in different situations. If you're making a speech to convert others to a religion, you only get the Pectoral bonus, but if you're one-on-one with someone doing that the Pectoral wouldn't apply so you get the Jewel's bonus.

However, their subsidiary powers - UMI, faster Intimacy generation, area-of-effect voice cancellation - do all combine.

That was a better thought out and explained version of what I was going to say. And definitely faster as Rajah doesn't seem to have been distracted by the new Triple Crown winner.

Any comments on my allies? I sort linked/posted them for approval.

Other than wanting to make a joke about LSD, and asking if the rest of the group is okay with Whitefeather's flaw, they look okay Zaer.

What joke it would be :P. Anycase yeah, flaw with Whitefeather may be entirely negated by sheer amount of shape shifting abilities she has. But her flaw could be that wyld hunts (or Immaculate monks) somehow regularly appear where she is (sort of karmic intervention controlled by ST; squad may be there but they may haven't spotted her yet).

I'm fine with White Feather's flaw. It would get us into interesting conflicts if nothing else.

OOC I see no problem with it. It'll be good for stories. :)

IC, Chihiro would be concerned, if only because getting made by the Wyld Hunt could be a problem for her and for them as a whole.

Working on a flaw of my own as well, off and on, might have it finished today

I like Hungry Ghost Style, but it can't be used in armor and demands claws (or chains or a razor harness, but why) and I really wanted a knight aesthetic for his human form. I spent a lot of time debating between sword-and-shield or big sword, and went with the latter because it adds a little barbarian vibe to the whole imitation-of-nobility thing.

I do have Essence sight from the visor (I spent so long looking for a cheap artifact for seeing dematerialized stuff, I knew there had to be one somewhere - Scroll of Fallen Races, of all places) and Insatiable Eucharist Appetite for eating ghosts. And there's Hungry Harvest and Sacred Kamilla's Inhalation for branching undead-affecting effects off from.

Makes sense--and yes while it does fit some of your thematics it doesn't sound like it meshes too well with what you have in mind.

Unfortunately Martial Arts tend to dominate a character due to how they're built once you start learning them, which can be good or bad I suppose.

Looks nice and interesting. Also I want to say that there's one spirit sight artifact in Glories: Maidens, which I'll double check right now. If you see an edit soon after, that means I was wrong or just wanted to give more detail.

EDIT: Yeah, AESS and Measure the Wind are what it gives for 5m committed. Measure the Wind is free, but an only be used on those that speak to you. Also if the blindfold's taken  off for any reason it needs to be readjusted to again.
