  • Perception, Intelligence, and Wits Charms cover things like mysticism and interaction with spirits, vision-questing and shamanic prophecies, transformative curses and blessings, memory-eating, training and interacting with familiars, plotting safe courses through the wilderness and the Wyld, being cunning enough to reveal that you set up a pit trap right where your enemy just stepped, and more.
    Sounds great! Thanks for your answers.

      Umbral Exalted and Dream-Souled, similar to Liminals, might be able to get the benefit of the doubt, although they could easily get themselves labeled Anathema.

      I wasn’t sure I was able to want Exigents more, but you just upped the bar.

        Do any of them have a role in the Realm like Liminals and Exigents? Or are they mysteriously unknown sorta like Alchemicals and Getimians?

          They're optional canon, but even assuming you add them into your game, they're not numerous enough to have a structured role in the Realm.

          (The same is true of Liminals, incidentally)

            The Realm will discuss the role of Exigents in the Immaculate Order in detail.

            So... Do Hearteaters literally eat hearts then? Or is it some other Horrific Shit that they do?
            Oh, it's much worse than that.

            • Are Psyche effects obvious as such to the Exalt using them?

              I mean, I assume a Solar using Hypnotic Tongue Technique couldn't really mistake his programming a dazed victim with a few short sentences for a normal conversation. But could a Dragon-Blood, say, use Smoothing-Over-the-Past Technique while chatting up a former enemy and end up thinking "hey, it's nice that he's decided to let bygones be bygones" without consciously realizing that he actually wiped the dude's memory of something? Or, perhaps, use Intoxicating Lotus Manuscript while thinking that he's just a really engaging writer?

                Generally speaking, yes.

                  I was thinking how Liminals are often hired as ghost-hunters and zombie-slayers; that's what I was thinking their "role" was.

If you want to create a many-handed titan guardian to march at the head of your armies and trample your foes underfoot, you're probably gonna want a high-end Solar working.
                    Would turning a man into a Titian by terrestrial?

                        Three new types of Exalted, the ones depicted alongside Infernals and Alchemicals in the two-page spread in the core. They'll be "optional canon" that Storytellers can add into their games if they like, detailed in the appendix of the Exigents hardback.

                          Definitely not.

                          • Fist of the Titans. The health level of damage you trade with Bone-Crushing Strike to inflict the crippling penalty; does it count for the number of health levels you need to inflict with Titanic Fist Devastation to trigger a reflexive Mammoth Slam Quake?

                            The range of MSQ can be extended if you're Resonant. Do you need to spend three separate Charges to extend the radius, or can you spend three Charges for the main effect AND then also enjoy the radius extension?


                            Is the Walking Statue / Jade Effigy / Automaton / Golem an example of the sort of Earth elemental you can summon and bind with sorcery?

                            If it were an artifact, would it be 3-dots compared to the 4-dots of a Brass Legionnaire? Or is it another 4-dot with an emphasis on being a single warrior rather than a machine which works well in a legion of its fellows?

                              What would be the average response of someone from the threshold?

                                No.

                                It's separate.

                                ...no?

                                I think they're about equal with Brass Legionnaires.
