    Dear Exalted fans, as you may be aware from the latest Onyx Path Monday Meeting notes, Robert Vance and I have been honored with the opportunity to take on line editor duties for Exalted Third Edition. As part of that, we want to make ourselves available to the community as a resource to keep you informed as best we can about the line. Obviously there will be some questions we can't answer! But when we're not working on upcoming books, we'll drop in to touch base.

    We'll be using this thread as our port of call so that we can easily find questions, and so that you only need to keep an eye on one place to read our answers.


    Developer for Exalted.

    Okay! Porting my questions about the Preview over here:

    Any chance at giving us an idea of what Dissonant keyword does to penalize using an artifact? Are there regular Evocations separate from Resonant Evocations?

      I guess congrats on the promotion for you and Vance are in order, so congrats Mr Minton and Mr Vance.

      Also the order as far as exalt splats is going is, Dragonblood, Lunars, then Exigents?

        Have you read the Stormcaller charms? Looks like the equivalent of Terrestrial/Mastery keyword for MA.

          I am very happy to see news that development on EX3 is moving forward. I will miss the involvement of Holden and Morke, but the show must go on. Rich's post discussed the upcoming books, Arms of the Chosen, Dragon-Blooded, Exigents and Lunars (more or less the perfect order of splat books). Are there plans for other books that explore the setting more, like the old Compass of Celestial Directions? How about Exalted adventure books similar to classic D&D published adventures?

            I just want to say welcome and good luck! I know the forums have been intimidating for the devs before and I'm super glad to see that you and Robert are going to be posting regularly, I hope everybody remains cool and this new era surprises us with how civil and productive the Exalted forum can be.

            Go team Creation!

              Oh, here's a question - because no Exalted thread would be complete without this derail - what's your vision for Lunars?

                Dissonant and Resonant are both keywords that modify the Evocation's base effect based on the wielder's affinity with the metal. They provide some extra knobs for balancing various effects, although I'm being sparing with my application of Dissonant.

                  I'm curious about the Dissonant and Resonant keywords as it relates to the artifacts provided in Ex3 Core.

                  Do you know if there'll be something to bring those in line with the new rules or are y'all not gonna bother?

                    I think updates of the corebook artifacts to use the resonance system would make for pretty good blog posts.

                      Dragon-Blooded, then Exigents, then Lunars.

                        Are any charms from your previous DB drafts going to be resurrected?

                          Very cool. Do you see these keywords being used to balance out more than just mechanical power? Or does that kind of go against the idea that Evocations are meant to allow you to break out of the aesthetics of your exaltation. Like for instance if there was moonsilver weapon with an effect that only moonsilver-resonant people had because it was just so very lunar/moonsilver-exigent?

                            Hi Eric & Robert,
                            Congratulations and best of luck!

                            My campaign is using aerial vehicles fairly heavily, and we are reaching the point where opponents are likely to be using fairly advanced stuff (though not always in large numbers. In previous editions, artifact vehicles often required one or more hearthstones to power them.
                            Would you comment on whether that is likely to remain true?
                            I'm not sure it really fits with the philosophy of this edition, but I am also pretty conditioned to previous editions.

                            Thanks and congratulations again!
                            Joshua

                              Oh, hey, 'nother question.

                              It was previously implied (and maybe stated I don't remember?) that most Exalts wouldn't be able to attune to MMs that weren't their type, the exceptions being Solars, Abyssals, and Dragon Blooded? Is that gone? Or are there gonna be any other penalties for attuning to an artifact that isn't "yours?"
