comment Can a player with “Harmonious Academic Methodology” train himself without spending XP?
@BrianS - I suspected as much, but I didn't want to say so without checking my book (and 2.5), and I never got around to it. That's good to know.

Ignoring the rules-as-written tag for a second,we house ruled this that PCs (and NPCs we tracked experience with) that benefited from training charms could go into experience debt, and that half of the XP that they gained moving forward would go to pay off whatever they gained through training charms. One couldn't be the target of a training charm if one was currently carrying experience debt. It worked very well.

comment Game with Interesting Combat that is Crunch Heavy and is built to not Require a Grid?
@Aesin That's one of my favorite things about the game. It's like the game design decision was explicitly made: let's take every guilty pleasure players have in games, and give them justification to do them.

@Jeff RE: the fact that you can't easily display that on a grid, well, that's kinda the problem. In 2nd Ed movement is complicated enough that it has to be tracked (or just ignored, which is a valid option, given play style), and because the settings you want for an ideal exalted fight are epic, it gets hard.

I'd also suggest that 2nd works really only with a grid. I personally love the tick system and will miss it in 3rd, but tracking movement is super important.

Second Edition combat mechanics are like tic-tac-toe. They're awesomely fun only until you figure out how to play the game. Then they become slow, grueling attrition between characters with supernatural flurries that will kill any army in Creation in one go and characters using perfect defenses. First one out of essence loses.

I'm accepting this due to community ascent and reasonability. If anyone actually contacts CCP regarding BESM and gets an official response, I'll move the acceptance.
