RPGnet Forums - [Exalted] Autochthonians First Impressions?

RPGnet Forums - [Exalted] Autochthonians First Impressions?: "SUBLUMINOUS ONSLAUGHT MISSILE
Cost: 10 motes, 1 Willpower
Installation Cost: 1 mote
Duration: Instant
Type: Simple
Minimum Strength: 5
Minimum Essence: 4
Prerequisite Charms: Repeating Pneumatic Bow
This Charm upgrades an Alchemical’s Repeating
Pneumatic Bow, allowing the weapon to fire a needle-thin
spike of crystallized Essence at incredible speeds. As usual,
the accuracy equals Essence (and uses the Exalt’s full
Dexterity + Archery to hit). However, the range increment
of the spike is one mile (whether the Exalt can even
spot possible targets that far away is another matter altogether).
Furthermore, the crystal’s base damage is [Strength
+ (Essence x 2)]L, and it cannot be parried without a stunt
or Charm. Not only does the attack inflict piercing damage,
but if the missile successfully damages anything it hits,
it loses one die of raw damage and continues flying in a
straight line until it fails to inflict damage. Finally, a wave
of displaced air and thunderous, concussive force follows
the projectile, knocking victims of human size or smaller
back by one foot for every die of damage the projectile
inflicts after soak. If any such victims strike a solid surface
rather than skidding to a halt across the ground, they suffer
1B damage for each yard further they would have otherwise
traveled. This damage may be lethal if the shockwave
blasts the victim into a sharp or otherwise deadly surface."
