      We'll make every effort to avoid it.

        That's an odd question. Why would you think there's a risk of that happening?

        • Will we get elaboration on Architects in Exigents? Will it be enough to build a character with?

          • Are there any artifacts in Arms that change form substantially? Like a Daiklave that can reconfigure into a Dire Chain or something? Or something more mystical like the legendary staff of Sun Wukong that could extend to infinity?

              We haven't decided on which Exigents will be featured in the book, but the Architects do have the benefit of being my baby.

                A thaumaturge's mystical powers should make her someone whose aid even a sorcerer or Exalt would seek out, small but unique miracles.

                  Ex3 Dragon-Blooded are going to be able to engage with Solars on their own terms, mechanically. The Dragon-Blooded are still decidedly the underdog in that situation, but half their Charms aren't going to become automatically useless just by dint of facing a superior opponent.

                  • While not necessarily the same mechanics - do you lean in at all to the idea from the Upright Soldier revision that Dragon-Blooded power stacks with teamwork more than other Exalted?

                      Dragon-Blooded Charms are slightly more oriented towards cooperation and collaboration, yes.

                        As somebody whose favorite splat is, unequivocally, Solars, this makes me very happy. I want those clashes to be meaningful and memorable.

                          Yeah, the reaction of the Solars to hearing about a nearby Wyld Hunt should be "Oh SHI-" not yawning and going back to bed.

                          ....Of course, by the same token, the Wyld Hunt should be off somewhere prepping for the fight of their lives and making sure their wills are up to date, before they try to beard the Anathema in its den. Nice to know that this will be the likely state of affairs.

                          • I have a question pertaining to supernal abilities. Using Prophet Uplifting Evocation as a specific example, if an Eclipse at Essence 2 but with Supernal Presence buys that charm can they have 4 prophets or 10 prophets? Do multipliers for charms in your supernal ability function as if your essence is 5?

                              Supernal only treats your character's Essence as 5 for purchasing and upgrading/repurchasing.
                              So, an Essence 2 Solar could have 4 prophets with Prophet Uplifting Evocation.
