  • Do you guys imagine you’ll include more supernatural merits that could qualify as mutations in the Lunar hardback?

      That's the plan!

Just would it be expected that a group of ape-folk (not necessarily Raksi's) might just have some extra endurance and strength and prehensile feet as the things that distinguish their capabilities, and that's it. In terms of capabilities, still something that another human could have, just consistently across the group.
        Sure, no rule they have to have Supernatural Merits.

          • What is the game-development reasoning for having Solars Resonant with all Magical Materials?

            A bit of background: I recently got a link to Nishkriya and elsewhere, where some game planning notes were present. I thought it was quite enlightening, surprisingly thorough, and spawned a few other questions. Such as this one, which is otherwise quite late to the question party.

            A specific example: I'm planning out some enemies for a new upcoming game. I want to include some ancient Solar tombs and the like, but why would my Circle want to go to them for Orichalcum when they could get the same range of Artifacts - in Jade or Soulsteel - by defeating some initial enemies. Is there an intended gameplay (rather than setting) equipment progression built into the Resonance?

            Thanks as always!

              Wait, shouldn't Sidereals start at E2 as well, to represent their training? Wouldn't that also necessitate a different progression?


              Evocations for the demonic tattoos gained from the Pact with Mara sorcerous initiation || Pyre-Kindler (Soulsteel and Red Jade Grimscythe, Artifact 3) || Tenebrous Descent (Stormcaller's Black Jade Reaver Daiklave cousin, Artifact 5)

                The traditional length of the Sidereal training regimen is a year and a day, per First Edition, which isn't too different from where a Solar PC might start. Definitely less than a Dragon-Blood who Exalted in adolescence and has been through secondary school.

                  One of the primary purposes of Evocations was to give Solars a way to access a wider thematic range of effects beyond those that their own Charms can express. Making them resonant with all materials ensures that a Solar can branch out into ice magic or something similarly stylish without any mechanical detriment for doing so.

                    Not all mutations from past editions are guaranteed to return. I want to focus on providing enough choices for people to build their Hybrid Body Transformations to fit any spirit shape they might come up with.

                      • Are a large portion of Sidereals still taken and raised in Heaven before their Exaltation based on forecasting of who will and will not Exalt?

                          No, although there are some rare instances.

                              Undetermined.

                              • Are Sidereals still the Exalted at birth like in 1e, but their Second Breath happens later in life? 2e was not clear about this in the corebook, I don't think it even got mentioned until Scroll of Heroes.
