Lawgiver (Ability) Fiat
Cost: --; Mins: (Ability) 3, Essence 3; Type: Permanent
Keywords: None
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Third (Ability) Excellency

Success is the domain of Solars, and in their chosen fields, they should never fear to strive for greatness. For the Solar who knows this Charm, failure is literally not an option.
Any time the Lawgiver makes a roll with (Ability) that would automatically succeed according to the automatic success rules on p124 of the Exalted core and the roll fails, she may instead accept a 0 threshold success as if she had chosen to default to automatic success instead. This ‘automatic reroll’ effect is available even after using other rerolls, such as the Third (Ability) Excellency.

At Essence 5, the Solar may use this ability even with rolls that are not normally eligible for automatic success, such as opposed rolls, those made in combat, or under stress. The automatic reroll can never be used with insufficient dice to qualify for an automatic success. Stunt dice and Charm purchased dice always count towards the requisite pool.

Because some things about Lunars drive me nuts!

Steel-Shod Quicksilver Marvel
Prerequisites: Changing Plumage Mastery, Essence 3, Appearance 3
The Lunar presents to the world the face she wishes to display. Where the prerequisite grants some control over garments and other ephemera, Steel-Shod Quicksilver Marvel permits the Lunar great control over her panoply. Whenever the Lunar changes shapes, she may spend a willpower to change the default disposition of her material goods. Even Moon-Faced or moonsilver armor may be banished to elsewhere; lesser armor, weapons, and tools may shift with the Lunar to still be usable rather than being forced Elsewhere. This permits Lunars to treat any mortal armor as Moon-Faced, though non-moonsilver artifacts must make 'sense' in some manner on or as part of the Lunar's form, their magically reinforced shapes not yet subject to the Lunar's will. The Lunar may only alter the arrangement of Elsewhere and non-Elsewhered items by spending another willpower on another shift.

Second-Skin Champion
Prerequisites: Steel-Shod Quicksilver Marvel, Essence 4, Appearance 5
This Knack extends is prerequisite to transcend the limitations of a form; any tool or artifact the Lunar carries may be moved to elsewhere or incorporated seamlessly into the Lunar's alternate forms. A ritual knife becomes a claw, or the edge of a hoof; a compass becomes an inborn directional sense. Armor, artifact or otherwise, can be incorporated invisibly beneath the Lunar's skin. These items are concealed completely, and only observing them in use, be it when a blade skitters off the moonsilver hardened hide or when a bear's claws function as medical scalpels to perform skillful surgery can expose the transformation.
Should a Lunar be slain while wearing a form integrating objects via this knack, those items are instantly banished to Elsewhere, and will not be seen again in Creation until the Lunar's next incarnation first shifts in to her human true form from an alternate form. This effect only affects those items that are owned by the Lunar; while she may still integrate stolen objects, they will instead appear next to her corpse. This explicitly includes any artifacts attuned to others.

Deadly Twin Contemplation
Prerequisites: Deadly-Beastman Transformation, Essence 5, Stamina 4
A Lunar's first War Form is shaped by the extremities of their current situation. Often times, they must sacrifice the utility that their forms could provide for more killing power; other times, they settle for an uneasy compromise and lose the top potential of their war-form. Situations change - especially when the Exalted are involved, and what was optimal when one was young may not aid an experienced Lunar with a wider field of abilities and Charms so well.
This Knack expands a Lunar's beastman transformations; taking it permits the Lunar to build a second warform following the same constraints as the first. This counts as a fourth True form, but permits an eagle totem Lunar to have one beastman form with great wings to carry off victims, and a second to optimize the striking power of claws and beak in the melee, or a panther Lunar to have one war form with an eye to stealthy hunting and another to open battle. As with Deadly Beastman Transformation, the war form must follow the thematics of the Lunar's spirit shape unless the Lunar knows Perfected Hybrid Interaction. Any war forms provided by this knack may be redesigned at any point the Deadly Beastman Transformation granted form is redesigned, such as when buying Perfected Hybrid Interaction or Terrifying Beastman Alteration.
This Knack can be purchased again at Essence 7, granting a third war form, and again at Essence 10. The Essence 10 purchase grants two separate war form configurations, reaching a total of 5 separate specialized war forms.

I'll be buying this for Bennu eventually, after I deal with some other critical things, just because fun and Judgmental.
