    Strength applies to vocal cords as well as punchy muscles.

    Doesn't that get REALLY weird for the sanxian player or, Sol forbid, the poet?
    Once you're in Kung Fu Hustle territory, I don't think weird is really as much of a concern.

      No uniform answer. What fits the needs of the narrative best.

        I think the gods would largely not want sorcerers bringing any demons into Heaven, thank you very much.

        If they are allowed, is there any ill effects to demons there? Examples being unable to generate essence or random sun flares threatening death. Or would they be just fine assuming nothing kills them?
        No automatic effects. Before the Divine Revolution, Yu-Shan was their home, after all.

        • Come to think of it, prior to the Divine Revolution First Circle Demons/Devas/Whatever were largely in the same position as the gods, weren't they? They were just the servants who lived in heaven with their masters and served them directly. Do you think it's likely that any of them sided with the gods during the war?

            Stranger things have happened.

            • Whats your vision of Malfeas for 3ed?
              I know that life in Malfeas is supposed to be something alien, but does that mean that it has to be bad?
              Could there be a liquor that is distilled from the fat of a demonic animal, but that is still more delicious and refined than the drinks that the dynast have in their parties?

              • Can you use MA or brawl charms that require you to be unarmed if you have the 4 dot version of claws that give you the traits of medium weapons?

                    The same vision depicted in Games of Divinity.

                    Depends on who you are. It certainly isn't bad for those newly-Exalted Infernals that lounge about in basalt pleasure domes, attended by demonic retinues and smoking dreams out of hookah.

                      And for mortals who got lost/demon cultist who ran away from prosecution to malfeas and built a city?

                        If an apocryphal eighth celestial incarna had sided with the Primordials and had their own Exalted, and that god still survived in Malfeas after the war, would they be rendered completely incapable of Choosing mortals with those Exaltations now because of surrender oaths?


                        Is there any general rule for how the corpses of gods, demons, and elementals behave after death?

                        Why do effects that kill mortals and set their souls to reincarnating not let gods reincarnate, but instead utterly destroy the god? Is this, on some level, suggesting that death is truly final for a mortal and that whoever is reborn with their soul is just as much a new person as a fresh Liminal Exalt?

                          It could go a number of ways. Maybe you find a nice, quiet place, and get torn to shreds by Adorjan. Maybe you're somehow able to acquire the patronage of a sympathetic, curious, or deceptively sadistic Second Circle Demon. Maybe you're able to work out a deal for employment at an establishment run by First Circle Demons, and have the weirdest coffee shop slice of life ever.

                            Not if the Storyteller introducing that Incarna into their game wants them to have Exalted.

                            No. In past editions, they poofed upon death, but I find not being able to describe battlefields strewn with the corpses of gods or daiklaves carved from the bones of a demon frustrating.

                            Why do effects that kill mortals and set their souls to reincarnating not let gods reincarnate, but instead utterly destroy the god?
                            Reincarnation through Lethe is an entirely different process than the way spirits reform.

                            Is this, on some level, suggesting that death is truly final for a mortal and that whoever is reborn with their soul is just as much a new person as a fresh Liminal Exalt?
                            The question of continuity of identity through reincarnation is not one that has a fixed answer, neither in the setting nor out of it.

                            • Did Exalted of the First Age ever try colonizing Malfeas?
                              Will Infernals be spending much time in Malfeas now, to the degree that Sidereals spent time in Yu Shuan and Abyssals spend time presumably in the Underworld?
                              As an Infernal, is settling a portion of hell with my mortal followers going to require mutating them more than I probably was going to already?
                              Do abyssals start at higher essence to reflect their tutelage under a deathlord?
                              Are Getmetians, Alchemicals, and Lunars the only Attribute based exalted?
                              Does Necromancy have non-harmful applications past the 1st circle? Or is Labyrinth and Void Circle mostly doomy-doom-doom(albiet doomy doom doom you can inflict on your enemies)


                              I did a lot of homebrew over here. PEACH.

                                It could've happened.

                                Will Infernals be spending much time in Malfeas now, to the degree that Sidereals spent time in Yu Shuan and Abyssals spend time presumably in the Underworld?
                                The Infernals have their own personal agendas, and they can't achieve them just by lounging around in their pleasure palaces.

                                As an Infernal, is settling a portion of hell with my mortal followers going to require mutating them more than I probably was going to already?
                                No. The mortal-killing malaise of editions past is gone.

                                Do abyssals start at higher essence to reflect their tutelage under a deathlord?
                                No.

                                Are Getmetians, Alchemicals, and Lunars the only Attribute based exalted?
                                Liminals.

                                Getimians may flip to something else depending on how their eventual design goes.

                                Does Necromancy have non-harmful applications past the 1st circle? Or is Labyrinth and Void Circle mostly doomy-doom-doom(albiet doomy doom doom you can inflict on your enemies)
                                Yes. Neither necromancy nor Abyssals are going to be "destructive effects only."
