  • What kind of things can lunar charms do with sail?

      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.)
      Is there ant chance we will get more examples of first age artifacts in the upcoming books?
      I think more axamples will help us to understand the difference more.

      • Are any of the Exalted who first colonised Prasad still alive?


        I have approximate knowledge of many things.

            Hearteaters are roughly comparable to Lunars and Sidereals, but it's more difficult to draw the parallel because they're weird. Dream-Souled aren't 100% locked in, but current thinking is that they're closer to Dragon-Blooded.

              It's certainly possible.

                They don't have anywhere near as many Sail-related Charms as Solars or other Ability-based Exalted do, but they do have a cascade of navigation Charms that are equally applicable to sea voyages and overland travel.

                  Not literally sailing, but what about swimming and carrying people/engaging in naval combat as a sea monster?

                    Yep, they can do that plenty good. Leviathan's all about that stuff.

                    • Once Exalted goes up on the Storytellers Vault, will you guys be allowed to read the fan modules without potential legal complications? Will you be reviewing the better ones when you need new writers and/or possibly just make some of the supplements "canon?"

                        It's not explicitly stated, but signs point to no; they'd be older than Ragara.

                          What attribute are those in?

                            Wits, but with lots of Totemic access into Perception.

                              Not sure. Either way, I'm probably not going to have the time to pour over the stuff folks put up on it; if people want their material to get considered for that, they should consider using the standard submission method.

                                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?
                                Re-upping this question since I'm interested in the answer to part 1 of it too (and also as it applies to elementals).
