    Can Do: Raise up new continents. Unleash devastating offensive power to unmake the armies of your enemy. Allow a sorcerer to master spells of a circle higher than she could normally initiate into.

    Can't Do: Time travel. Resurrection. Creating new Exaltations ex nihilo. Guarantee a happy ending or a peaceful dharma. Things the Storyteller doesn't want to be possible at all in the game.

    • Will we need a charm to express extreme applications of natural abilities of an animal?
      Like a spider web that can tangle a warstrider or a corrosive poison that can melt walls.

        So if you were playing a crafting character and making food that was essentially a legendary project how would you treat it?

          I don't see cuisine reaching that level. Not every Craft can.

            I assume in general, consumables can't reach N/A levels of crazy?

            • Mr Vance, what sort of cool / mean things can sids do with astrology?

                Really? Even with the use of exotic ingrediants? Seems like it should do something.

                  That's my favorite, too. Any chance of seeing more of The Silver Chair in 3E?

                    It's not really a hard rule so much as it is me being unable to envision what a N/A-level banquet would be.

                      The celestial bodies are unlikely to be detailed, as they're not going to be relevant to the vast majority of games, but we don't plan to explicitly write them out of canon.

                          So I'm making God-Kicking Boot, an Exalted webcomic, now. Updates on Sundays. Full-color, mediocre but slowly improving art. It's a thing.

                          The absence of a monument can, in its own way, be something of a monument also.

                            I mean, it'd expect it to be a single dish. One capable of giving a host of effects and tastes comparable to a celestial peach or wine. There are a few edible items that do qualify as N/A..

                            • Is the Fire Integrity signature intentionally a reference to the “Attack anyone who tries to talk to you” 2e meme or did it just work out that way?

                                So theoretically, if it uses some non renewable resource it's fine?
                                For example can I build an altar to torture gods into nonexistence upon, then use their gathered blood to anoint Champions with supernatural power?
