Default Multiple Imbuements?

Can you imbue the same attack with multiple imbuements at once?

No Compartmentalized Mind required; the ability to use Imbue multiple times per attack is there by default.

Absolutely. The only limit is that you can't add more than one Transformation Imbuement.

You can even do it with one skill roll if you take a Combination Skill (Imbuements p. 13-14).

I recommend the option that requires you use combination skill. I really don't like playing with say DF mystic knights that want to roll six times for every attack, it bogs play down to a crawl.

I often use a house rule where if you would be doing multiple different skill checks for the same action, you just roll against the lowest skill and use that margin of success for all the relevant tests.

Honestly I might use that to cut down on some of the crunch for this character in my campaign. His turns take forever and my other PC's get annoyed.

Either roll the lowest, apply it for everything, or roll once, keep the effect for MoS seconds. I'm fond of both solutions, because Imbuements really do encourage you to stack 3-4 wacky effects on top of each other but adding 3-4 skills a turn slows down play.
