  • Which type of Exalted would you say best fits DMC5’s new Devil Trigger theme?

Not necessarily more Exalted, but like particular spirits, Wyld entities, magical animals, and such? I just think Lunars suffer a bit from being the only shapeshifters, instead of the preeminent shapeshifters, in the game.
      Is Lucien still in the game?

        He hasn't been printed yet, so there's no canonical statement either way, but he has a good chance of appearing in later books.

        • Does a Spider style martial art exist in Exalted canonically? If so what abilities and effects would you say would suit the concept?

            Changing into a Legendary Size form requires a Charm, which has a higher cost than regular shapeshifting.
            Does this charm lets you take the for of Legendary size animals or to tur an animal shape into legendary?

                Roughly comparable to Lunars and Sidereals.

                  Expanding your existing forms to Legendary Size is a bit more of an advanced trick.

                      If one were to be created, what abilities and themes off the top of your head would you think is suitable?
                      For the aspiring martial arts designer...

                        Probably poison, binding restraints, and traps.

                        • If you kill a sorcerer, are her bound demons:
                          a) Free
                          b) Free for the rest of their remaining summoning time, then they go back to Hell
                          c) Still got a Defining Intimacy to their summoner, she's just not got any orders for them because she's dead, but they might avenge her or follow her last orders or something until the spell ends
                          d) Immediately returned to Hell

                          Also, if you kill a demon, does their body just dissolve? I guess that's the same for other spirits too. Can you kill an elemental or demon and harvest them for magical reagents, or do spirits just dissolve into nothingness?

                            That may be, but it is implied that they would interact with other characters, if only through their infrastructural Charms. If that is the case, shouldn't there at least be some guidelines sketched out so that, say, a Solar diplomat can initiate a Charm defense against the apartment suite that is profiling her?

                              So it's more a matter of thematics then? Like, both modes have Artifacts that let you fly, but it's the difference between a cloak that turns into wings and a Rocketeer-style jetpack?

                                It has nothing to do with thematics, but with impact on the setting. Artifacts that let an Exalt fly don't warp the setting away from the canonical presentation of the Age of Sorrows, so they don't require First Age artifice, whether they manifest as a winged cloak or as a jetpack. Airships do warp the setting away from the canonical presentation of the Age of Sorrows, so they do require First Age artifice, whether they manifest as a winged trireme or as a sci-fi skycruiser with turbines and arc reactors.

                                (This is covered in the First Age Artifice sidebar on p. 116 of Arms of the Chosen.)
