On Dawn King's Strife

This is one of the earliest Charms written for this segment, devised by Holden. I consider it to be the pinnacle Charm of the Dawn Solution, exemplifying the principle of combat fusion. Naming it was one of the hardest things to do. I eventually settled on Dawn King's Strife because when you say it aloud it sounds like Don King's Strife. You can't put a price tag on that kind of a bizarre revelation.” —Ø

One of the biggest problems plaguing the Dawn Caste has been Infinite Mastery. Infinite Mastery is a lynchpin of Solar power in second edition, but it requires a tremendous Essence investment and carries a significant activation risk. Until now, this has strongly discouraged any sort of multi-ability fighting style: once you put Infinite Mastery up, it would be foolish to use any other combat ability unless forced to. Dawn King’s Strife not only solves this problem, but it helps make multi-discipline fighting economically practical for Dawns by getting rid of the need to purchase Excellency suites in four different Abilities.” —H
