  • What can be told at this point about Five Days Darkness? Between Ex1 and Ex2, Five Days Darkness went from a truly dark and vengeful bastard son, to the dark and brooding but helpful uncle to the solar exalted. Will this iteration of the game hew more closely to the first or second edition, or will there be a new spin?

      To kind of piggyback on this, is he only active during the daytime or the night time? The different editions actually had different takes on this.

        We haven't talked a whole lot about Five Days Darkness. Personally, my favorite narrative aspect of him is his feud with the Calendar Court.

            Since he’s feuding with the calendar gods, do you envision 5DD actually having an official position within the Celestial Bureaucracy as the god of Calibration, or any other domains? In previous editions it was vague if 5DD was even a true go, had a actual position within the CB, or if he was even some other spirit type.

              He's currently unemployed, but angling for the position of God of Calibration.

                Reward shifting through multiple animal shapes in combat. Let you influence cultures and societies by being the monster that will inspire their cautionary tales. Play a crafter.

                • Holden suggested, if I remember right, that the Lunar Great Curse might involve “losing control of the thousand beasts within”.

                  Might Lunar Limit Breaks involve getting locked in disadvantageous forms, being forced to constantly and randomly change, budding off a short-lived wild animal or evil twin? Anything like that?

                  Not punishing Lunars for shapeshifting through limit triggers, but using Limit Breaks to turn their shapeshifting against them?

                    Lunar Great Curse is still to be decided. I've got two competing ideas for it, and other devs or writers might have better ones.

                      Is there anything you can say about how crafting works for lunars, what they can and cant make, and how far they are from Solars?

                        A Lunar of sufficient skill, experience, and Essence can attempt to craft Artifact 5s with a reasonable chance of success. Artifact N/As are typically beyond them, but not impossible. They have some "workhorse" Charms similar to Solar Crafting, but also diverge into some things that only a Lunar could do.

                            Five-dot artifacts, and to a lesser degree four-dots, are very difficult for even the most-invested Dragon-Blooded crafters, but are attainable if you have decent luck on your dice rolls.

                              So player characters will be restricted to mostly 2 and 3 dot artifacts until they reach high Essence?

                              • Will DBT use supernatural merits to further customize a character's DBT form, or do you have a different method in mind for doing that?
