    I think the bit where, in 2nd ed, to be an Abyssal you had to honestly go "Yes, I am willing to destroy the world." It couldn't be like "I take your deal Mask of Winters, so I can get revenge on my murderer (but I won't help him destroy the world)" and then the Mask manouevres you into helping his greater plot, or "I will slay those who desecrate the corpses of my ancestors" or "I'll be a bridge between the living and the dead". You had to actually, willingly, be up for destroying the world, even if just for a couple of really angry minutes.
    And that damns you forever? What even is damnation, etc. etc.

    At the end of the day, I think Exalted's treatment of morality shouldn't be less nuanced than that of The Good Place.

    • So... looking at the Monday Meeting Notes, it seems that the Lunars Kickstarter is getting ever closer.
      Is there something you look forward to showing to the community most of all?

        It's a whole package sort of deal.

        • Do the Lunars currently have riddle themed charms, or should I set money aside for the custom charm reward tier?

              Nothing specifically riddle-themed.

                    I assume you mean the morality operating in-universe, not the show’s statement on morality?

                      Right now I'm focused on getting the revised Dragon-Blooded files back to the layout team, because that's pretty quick work (and I imagine folks don't want to be waiting very long on it). This weekend, back to Lunars dev.

                        I'm focused on redlining Across the Eight Directions while Vance is revising Dragon-Blooded. Once DBs are off the table, we'll trade off Eight Directions and Lunars material.

                        • DBs and Solars, for instance, are more "social" with Circles and Hearths. Liminals aren't really into being together. What about the three auxiliary Exalted types?

                            Like Exigents (and Liminals, for that matter), they're more likely to slot into mixed Circles if they show up as PCs.

                            • The 3e corebook says "[t]hough they are death’s champions, the Abyssals yet live," which is how it was in previous editions. What Fire Has Wrought refers to Abyssals as "undead Exalted" (under Eternal Death-Banishing Blossom, p. 233). (There's also at least one other Charm that mentions "undead Exalted" without naming Abyssals specifically.)

                              Is this a deliberate change, i.e. are Abyssal Exalted actually undead now? Or should those Charm descriptions say something more like "Exalted who are creatures of death?"

                                It's not a deliberate change — "undead" is nebulous enough of a concept in Exalted's cosmology that it's tricky to draw precise lines. The Abyssal Exalted haven't died yet, but they're suffused with the Essence of death itself. Saying "creature of death" over and over burns wordcount, and it isn't any more precise, so "undead Exalted" it is. That doesn't change any of the specifics of what playing an Abyssal will be like.
