    So, lots of geometric art? Maybe take a few pages from Muslim art? That sort of thing?
    Yeah.

    ...How widely literate is the Realm? Might they post sections from the Immaculate Texts, caligraphed into amazing art?
    Better than average, thanks to the Immaculate Order's educational efforts.

      Interesting. This is a change form the 1e DB book on the subject, so good to know and will keep in mind with future art things.

        Normally, reaching for a certain level of Artifact and falling short means that the project simply dies. You could use the failed product as the basis or expendable component for another project, but the thing itself is stillborn.

        Will the Dragon-Blooded get a Charm which lets them fail gracefully, allowing them to reach for the stars with an Artifact 4 or 5 and --should they fail-- settling for a 3-dot version of their ambition?

          • Bottomless Wellspring Approach says that when you introduce facts within your area of specialty "any extra successes are doubled".

            What does that mean? If I buy successes with another charm, are those doubled? is it success over the difficulty, and what effect would that have?

            • On the subject of the new Exalts, could you perhaps state a single fictional character which could be modeled as such for each of them, like Frankenstein's monster for Liminals, or (I think) Nox from Wakfu for Getimians?

                Is that because such an effect is not in themes for DBs but would work for other splats, something you don't want any splat to have or something they could have in theory but that you're not planning to make a canon charm for?

                  "Extra successes" refer to your successes over the difficulty, aka threshold successes. This doesn't have any effect on its own; my best guess is that it's legacy code.

                    Not for now, but only because I'm unsure of my ability to give examples that won't result in people getting false impressions. I'll think on that for a while.

                      Mostly the second one. I think it's more interesting for Charms to enable or reward success than mitigate failure.

                      • Do you worry that including the new Exalts in Exigents book undermines the book's theme of how unique each Exigent is, whereas there's many of the new Exalts (compared to the near singular nature of any given Exigent; I imagine new Exalts numbering several dozen to a couple hundred at most)?

                        How is the line drawn between the collective nature of each new Exalt type and the city Exigents, which while there are probably more of them than other more individual Exigents they're still not a "splat" or "breed" of Exalt, like Solars or Hearteaters?

                          Yes, but... If a DB honestly can’t get to a point where creating a level 4 or 5 artifact is likely, it would be nice not to waste all that work and still salvage something from it in the likely event of failure.

                          Hmmm... What about a charm that let you study a failed or broken artifact and gain either some craft xp, bonus successes on your next similar artifact roll, or both?


                          ....

                            Nah.

                            Exigents are created by lesser gods by drawing upon the Exigence. The optional Exalted types are all created by divine patrons on par with the Incarnae.

                              I wouldn't rule it out entirely.

                                What other divine patrons on par with the Incarnae exist? Do you mean to introduce new Incarnae?
