  • What is the potential scope of an N/A artifact that interacts with sorcery in third edition? Workings at the solar level seem to already allow for world-shaking wonder.

      Hmm. So no styles that are almost impossible to use without the sutra?

        The Mantle of Brigid and the Eye of Autochthon would be some examples.

          The canonical answer to that question is never going to be yes, but I don't want to give a "no" that shuts down options at individual groups' tables.

          Also, can a dragon king become an exalted through exigence?
          No. The olchiliké, Dragon Kings ridden by gods, fill a similar role, though.

            would the mantle of brigid still increase the essence level of the wielder in 3rd or would it do something else?

              I think we can find more interesting things to do with it.

                • Are the Dragon-Blooded on the same footing as their Celestial counterparts when navigating the Heavenly City in Ex3? I wasn't a big fan of earlier editions' stance of not letting them into Yu-Shan without a Celestial Exalt or god to vouch for them.

                  ​How tough do you expect a Celestial Lion to be in a fight? What'd be the closest thing you'd compare them to, stats-wise?

                  • Do you think there is still a place for Falling Blossom Style when mortals can’t learn it anymore? Considering how much the Style encourages and expects its adherents to die.

                    Or are Exalted better off learning Stone Lion Style, where the assumption is that the martial artist can protect someone and survive to keep doing so?

                      Ancillary question; does the Realm know about the outcaste bloodline that lives in Yu-Shan? If a Dragon Blood from Creation visits Heaven, will the natives go out of their way to avoid them?

                        Suffice it to say that one sidebar from Second Edition no longer holds true.

                        Based on Games of Divinity, I think they'll be pretty buff. Possibly on par with a combat-oriented Second Circle Demon, but weaker than Ahlat.

                          Not without some major reconceptualization.

                            I'm going to guess probably not. Heaven's Dragons will get more discussion in Heirs to the Shogunate.

                            If a Dragon Blood from Creation visits Heaven, will the natives go out of their way to avoid them?
                            Assuming you're referring to Yu-Shan's human population, I don't think so, but Yu-Shan is a very big place, and it doesn't get a whole lot of Dragon-Blooded visitors.

                              Nono, I was referring to Heaven's Dragons specifically; would they have a preference for actively being a secret from their Terrestrial cousins, or have a disdainful and slightly isolationist attitude towards them, or is their being unknown in the world basically an accident that they don't go out of their way to correct?

                                It's in Exalted: the Sidereals, too. >.<

                                I was flipping through E:tS, and there was this whole passage about how Essence 5+ gods, Essence 6+ Celestial Exalted, and Eclipse Caste Solars were let into Yu-Shan without question; how anyone with a Celestial Manse was admitted; how any god or Celestial on business with Heaven was admitted (including Sidereals, since that's where their jobs are); but when it came to Dragon-Blooded, they were only allowed in under the same circumstances as mortals.
