  • Rules Exemption Perk - Pros: Cheap and simple. Cons: Probably too cheap.
  • Imbuement Skill - Pros: Cheap if they are already invested in Imbuement skills (which they may, I haven't decided). Cons - Lots of parts and extra rolls.
  • Blessed Variant - Pros: Simple. Cons: May be hard to price.

Thoughts?
I think I'd go with Blessed. As for pricing, well, what are the drawbacks that need avoiding? For breakage risks we've been using a per skill perk (Careful Parry [skill]) to negate those for years, but I think it's still a house rule. For reduced damage I suppose it's a limited version of Striking ST (only for stone blades or whatever). Are there any others? Probably comes in at more than 5 but fewer than 10 points.
