I'm planning a campaign in which one of my players is a night caste assassin focusing on stealth and ebon shadow style. That made me wonder how rulers and other key players would defend themselves against assassination attempts. The most obvious solution seems to be getting loads of awareness charms, or alternatively get a bodyguard with loads of awareness charms. Both options does seem a bit repetitive. No to mention that it will simply be an arms race of stealth vs. awareness. So I'm looking for alternative options. In real life people hire loads of guards because more eyes are usually better than fewer. This seems difficult in Exalted, since most mortals will rarely have the needed dicepools to compete. So how would a solar king defend against a sidereal assassin (if he knew about their existance), or a dragon-blooded defend against a solar assassin? What about mortals? Creation have a lot of mortal rulers, so they must have some way of defending themselves.
No announcement yet.
