  • Will either The Realm or Lunars: Fangs at the Gate go into detail on the sorts of defenses the Realm has in place for rooting out and dealing with Lunar infiltrators?

    I mean, Hunting and eating a young DB going out on walkabout among the Satrapies and then going back and resuming their job shuffling important papers or being assigned as a captain in charge of lots of legionnaires sounds like a really good position to start causing problems for the Realm, assuming you can carry it off for any significant length of time.

    Even just eating a rat could potentially get you onto the Blessed Isle with few potential issues, where you could cause all kinds of problems as a shapeshifting insurgent.

    I'm assuming that there's a good reason most Lunars haven't done this, I'm just not sure what it is.

      Just wondering if it's okay to ask if sidereals are after exigents.
      That’s been confirmed on another thread.

Assuming the Storyteller says, silly Vance, of course a working can make automatons, the difference between Terrestrial 3 and Celestial 1 basically comes down to whether or not you want them to be a thing that Dragon-Blooded and mortal sorcerers can make fairly easily.

        If i want to given them charms to make something like not-blood ape, would that kick it up to celestial or is there still some wiggle room to make it terrestrial?

            It's possible!

              Ultimately, that's a question for your Storyteller.

                The Caulborn aren't a single monolithic entity.

                As a practical matter, how much of the Caul did the Realm control at their height, and how much do the Lunars control now?
                At its height, the Realm held all five shrine cities and Feng-Yi, although the wilderness beyond the cities likely remained beyond its grasp. Today, the Lunars hold Feng-Yi and all the shrine cities but Faxai, along with other holdings outside the city.

                Do the Dream-Souled have a specific dream in their soul, or just a general one?
                The Dream-Souled are Chosen by their patron because of what it sees in their dreams.

                  It's been clarified that charms that are limited by an attribute or static value, or give a bonus/penalty equal to an attribute or static value like Iron Whirlwind or Doe Eyes Defence do not count bonuses from charms, but Hearing the Hearts Song specifically says it adds non-charm dice equal to your (booste​d) Evasion. Does this mean just the boost from the charm itself (so max 9 non-.charm dice from [dex + dodge + speciality]/2 + performance/2) or does mean your full Evasion applied against the attack including bonuses from other charms and stunts?
                  The former.

                    They've still got Aspect marks, yeah.

                    That's the next splatbook planned.

                      The idea that the Lunars haven't been infiltrating and sabotaging the Blessed Isle is incorrect. The Realm will show some of the consequences of this.

                      • Vance, were you the one who wrote the sorcerous working rules?


                        I have approximate knowledge of many things.
                        Write up as I play Xenoblade Chronicles.

                          What about before the Usurpation? Have the Lunars and Dragon-Blooded ever warred for the island before? Did they never time-share the place?

                          Interesting!


                          When Lunars assume Legendary Size, do their Kiai attacks with Silver-Voiced Nightingale Style act like warstrider-scaled weapons? Still with the traits of mundane light throwing weapons rather than artifact traits?

                              It's possible that the First Age saw both peace and war on the Caul, across its various epochs. Its—well, not its creation, but its being brought into the world—was the result of a joint effort by Lunars and Dragon-Blooded.

                              No, but all the benefits of Legendary Size apply.

                                Its creation is distinct from the event of appearing in Creation? Or are you saying that its RE-appearance was the joint accomplishment of members of the two Exalted Hosts? Which would presumably be those who were on it when it vanished.

                                So I can’t crush battle groups with effectively unblockable roars, but the damage of my roars is not penalized against other giants?
