    The general guideline is that if you read that a specimen of the creature was discovered the real world (whether in an isolated location or as part of the fossil record), if your reaction is "it seems unusual but maybe it could be real," then it's an animal. While if your reaction is "It's impossible for such a creature to exist in the real world, some element of this story is clearly bullshit," it's a magical creature.
    Okay, that seems reasonable.

      I came up with a few more questions. Don't know if these have been asked. Thanks for being patient.

      First off, what do we call a version of the setting with the optional Exalted? 3.0A, 3.0(optional), 3.1?
      "Your game."

      Next, in a setting where the optional Exalted exist, how many of each would be a good number to exist?
      The appendix in Exigents that covers this will give some default numbers.

      Will Lunars have a way to use dreams as a sanctum like their Wyld powers from 2E? Could they possibly take items/people/other out of dreams into creation?
      They have some stuff that touches on dreams.

      I've noticed that most of the Charms we've gotten with the Eclipse keyword tend to affect an area in some way. (entering a domain, bountiful crops, Sand trap) Will we be seeing Eclipse charms that are more direct or is it a theme of them that Eclipse charms usually affect an area?
      That's not a deliberate thing.

      If a bunch of lesser gods got together to create an Exigent, could they do it without the "Flame of Exigence"? Like could six forbidden spirits of ancient evil get together and make Mumm-Ra without any help from the Unconquered Sun? I'd guess they'd be so weakened by the rule of diminishment that they'd be destroyed or unable to leave Mumm-Ra's Pyramid.
      Nope, they'd still need to call on the Exigence.

        The Spoken have trouble being group players, on account of they went extinct.

        Hearteaters...probably won't fit into a mixed Circle, but it's not impossible.

        Umbral Exalted or Dream-Souled could easily fit into a mixed Circle.

          All three of the optional Exalted are currently planned to be Essence-based.

          • Could a large number of minor spirits of similar nature get together and create their own Exalted? I’m talking like “Size 5 Battlegroup of Field Gods” numbers or something else ridiculous.

            Or does it not matter how many lesser gods you get together, they still need the help of a powerful entity to produce an Exaltation?

              You can't overcome the need for the Exigence through quantity.

                  This might be cheating but is there anything about their powerset that makes it implausible as well? I intend to Ryleh them as a plot point some time in the future...

                  • If Stormcaller is used with Single Point style, does it cause it's sheathing effect with every strike? Or does it only activate with the intent of actually sheathing the blade?

                      Wonderfully ironic double-post.

                        Note also that in the final consolidated Hundred Devils book, "Animals" and "Strange Beasts" will be two separate chapters, so it will be easy to tell the difference.

                            Kinda, although it's not an insurmountable obstacle.

                            • I have a character who is planning to summon some 3rd circle demons soon. How hard should they be to summon compared to 2nd circles that are mostly resolve 5? Are we talking about doubling it to 10 or more than that?

                              • Can only Gods make use of the Exigence? Suppose, hypothetically, that a demon or elemental, or maybe even a behemoth of some sort, got their hands on one. Could they then make their own Exalted?
