  • Wait, there's something that I'm unclear on:

    Lunars don't particularly need the introduction of any foils when they already have compelling dynamics with literally every other one of the classic Exalted bar Alchemicals, and the Sidereals don't need an additional foil on top of the new opportunities that adding Getimians and Exigents to the setting adds for them.
    Does this mean that the Lunar foils have been judged to be extraneous and dropped?


    I have approximate knowledge of many things.

      The Hearteaters and the Umbral Exalted were the Lunar foils. The Dream-Souled were an additional Sidereal foil.

      • Well, now I'm looking forward to Exigents quite a bit. I wasn't that excited about the new Exalted before (though Getimians always sounded pretty cool), but the prospect of getting a book on homebrewing with examples of optional, unknown Exalted to use or build on is changing that. Plus the names are making me curious.

        But on that subject, what do you see as the Liminals' role in the game? Of the previously known three, I think I got why Exigents and Getimians were introduced, but Liminals seemed the odd one out. Are they meant to be Abyssal foils of some sort?

          Liminals aren’t anyone’s foils. They exist because they provide an interesting play experience that explores a wide range of “created life” stories.

            Since gods and demos are a few steps beside sidreals and infernals, will they be more PCable in this edition?

              I don't think they're any better suited to being PCs in this edition than in past ones, although that's not to say it can't be done.

              • Can a god hold multiple positions in the Celestial Bureaucracy? Like being the God of Monkeys and the God of Trickery? Or are most deities that mix things like that gods of specific purviews that involve that kind of overlap? Example of um... Ape-of-Rock, the Duke of Mischievous Monkeys?

                  Yeah, just like in everyday human bureaucracies. Ahlat's a good example, he's the Southern God of Warfare and Cattle.

                    Building on VioletDreamer's question, Ahlat is obviously god of Southern Warfare specifically, and not warfare outside the South. But is he god of cattle everywhere, or just in the south too?

                      Games of Divinity specifies that he's the god of cattle in the South specifically.

                      • The war charm "League of Iron Preparation" mentions that you commit 5m of essence to drill your battle-group, and that the commitment ends after you complete the drilling of your troops. However, it doesn't give any indications on how long the drilling is suppose to take. As it's a charm mechanic, I was curious if there was suppose to be an established time frame?

                        • When a battle group makes an attack, they select a primary target and hit everything within close range of it. Does a small battle group crowded around a single siege weapon hit everything in an entire range band in a similar manner? Does a lone Exalt firing a siege engine hit everything in an entire range band in the same manner?

                          Considering that a Battlegroup is unable to make a decisive attack and has fixed initiative, does that mean that a battlegroup of demons/elementals/whatever is unable to use Collapsing point of Destruction?

                          Considering that Quick Character don't have actual stats, just dice pools, how many dice should Battle Ready Troops or Elite Troops have when using a siege weapon?

                          • Hearteaters and Dream-souled sound like equivalents to Lawgivers or Deathknights, whereas Umbral Exalted sounds like a real exalt type name. Is this correct, or are all three just made up descriptive terms to refer to them for now?

                              Those are all their real names, not sobriquets. Trying to force everything into then "[Adjective] Exalted" format eventually just leads to picking lame adjectives.

                                That was what I was asking. Can you tell us some of those factors? What DOES make a character type unfit for PC usage?
