Crystallize

Crystallize is a special form of defense available only to Dragon-Blooded. When a character uses it, he briefly transmutes into his native element, absorbing an attack completely (in the case of Earth, Water, and Wood), or allowing the attack to pass through his body harmlessly (in the case of Air and Fire). This form of defense was first developed and used by Earth Aspects, hence its name. Without a stunt, crystallize cannot be used against attacks with no physical component.

The formula for determining a character's Crystallize DV or CDV is ([Resistance] + [Stamina] + [Essence])/2.

The successful use of crystallize as a defense negates an attack, exactly as though a character had used Parry or Dodge.

Crystallize is similar to Dodge, and an attack that is undodgeable also penetrates this form of defense.
