    O_O you're right, I had that confused with Diamond-Body Prana!

    • Sorcerer questions! Those are fun!

      Can demons be summoned in the underworld?
      Can a demon be sent back to malfeas to fufill a task (like retrieving some silver sands or Yozi Venom)?
      Can I order a bound demon to take me to Malfeas?


      I did a lot of homebrew over here. PEACH.

        Yes.

        You could give that order, but most demons don't have any sort of way to travel from Creation to Malfeas except by taking the already-existing paths that lead into Cecelyne, so it's not going to work great.

        • What sorts of mechanics, if any, are present in The Realm?

          I imagine in a book of sorcery there will be more examples of shaping rituals, but will there be examples in Exalt hardbacks, too, that are possibly more specific to that type of Exalt?

          • Player was wondering: Are there any examples of Getimians in video games you can think of, particularly playable characters?

              Do you intend the above as a blanket contravention of Stalking Shadow Spirit sidebar, or just SSS can break dice caps, or just cry chicanery on letting LSP break dice cap on Join Battle, or ...?

              E.g., I use LSP + excellency to net avg 20 successes (Wits 5, Larceny 5, 10 excellency dice, avg 10 successes, doubled by LSP). Can those 20 successes break my dice cap on a pickpocketing attempt?

                The Realm is almost entirely mechanics-free. The only mechanics I can think of are Quick Character stats for typical archons and for members of the Silent Legion.

                We have a couple of initiations (with shaping rituals) in Dragon-Blooded. Other hardbacks may or may not have initiations, but odds are good.

                  None come to mind, but I'm not a big video game guy.

                    Using it with other Larceny and Stealth-based actions may not be as egregiously broken as applying them to Join Battle with Blinding Battle Feint, but I highly recommend following Living Shadow Preparation as written and treating all banked successes as bonuses from Charms.

Take the scale of the map into consideration - Hawaii wouldn't even show up on the size of the 3e map. Exalted has always had huge swaths of blank spaces on the map, meant to be filled by the ST's own needs for the story. One of the ways Eric and Vance encourage this in 3e is by mentioning underdetailed locations in relation to detailed and "mapped" places.
                      That's one thing I've really liked about 3e. The writeup for Gem in the 3e Core made me do something similar for the region around Chiaroscuro, which I've been steadily fleshing out over the course of the game I'm running and it's been pretty fun. So, thanks guys!

                        Is Wu-Jian a Realm satrapy at this point or kind of its own zone? I kind of got this imrpession that any control on it is tenuous at best. How about Fajad and Goldenseal?


                        And stuff.

                          All three are satrapies. They'll be covered in The Realm.

                          • A few times in this thread there's mention of other religions and also heresies. The core book states the Immaculate Order is the leading sect of the Immaculate Philosophy. Is it the only one, or that's what these heresies refer to?

                            I feel like when people hear "heresy" in a fantasy setting a dark, sinister faith is imagined; here it seems any Immaculate Philosophy faith would be seen as heretical by the Order yet still noble and righteous itself. The Catholic and Orthodox Churches are vast Christian establishments, the former being much larger, but they're still in a different league than - bear with me - sacrilegious devil-worshipers.

                            • The Stone of Nightly Reunion Works on graves even for souls that have passed through Lethe, never became a ghost, or were Soul obliterated right? Like is it a simulation of the Bodies Memories that you can interact with, or does it actually require a soul of the grave to exist?

                              I have seen a lot of debate on Summoning spells, big question, can non-Exalts use a Summon Demon Spell and have it work like Exalts? I was under the impression they can summon demons but can't bind them without being Exalted due to the Surrender Oaths, and that they need Sorcerous Workings to bind Demons if they are say a Mortal.


                              It is a time for great deeds!

                              • Is there going to be a better explanation of how certain character extends their life and/or keep them young. It wasn't good covered in 2nd edition imo and some stuff that was covered was mostly based on fans.
