    Ask the Devs

    Dear Exalted fans, as you may be aware from the latest Onyx Path Monday Meeting notes, Robert Vance and I have been honored with the opportunity to take on line editor duties for Exalted Third Edition. As part of that, we want to make ourselves available to the community as a resource to keep you informed as best we can about the line. Obviously there will be some questions we can't answer! But when we're not working on upcoming books, we'll drop in to touch base.

    We'll be using this thread as our port of call so that we can easily find questions, and so that you only need to keep an eye on one place to read our answers.

    Is there a scholarly answer in-universe on why everything has an anima? I know from a game perspective it's just there for the Exalted but I'm just wonder what a person in setting would explain why every living thing has an invisible bubble around them and what purpose it has, if it even has a purpose and not a side effect for something else.

    Is there a particular reason why even a Fire Aspect Brawl specialist gets very little use out of trying to punch faces with Raging Fire-Dragon Spirit, or is that just the way things worked out?

    The Signature Fire Charm of Resistance has more compatibility with Terrestrial Thrown Charms and Terrestrial Archery Charms, both of which can mitigate the loss of soak through the safety of range. Terrestrial Melee offers the best parry and clash Charms, as well as attack Charms to take advantage of the offensive buff.

    Terrestrial Brawl is simultaneously the weakest and the most risky Ability to use with Raging Fire-Dragon Spirit. Unless you only use it long enough to also use Erupting Fury Barrage.

    Speaking of which, EFB works like a normal multi-attack that deals damage as well as creating eruption points, right?

    How well known are Sidereal by Lunars? You've mentioned Ma-Ha-Suchi and Raksi remember them (with hatred, I think the word might have been?), but do the others know?
    Though I suppose we'll find out with Fangs at the Gate?
    Oh, does ghost worship produce ambrosia and/or quintessence?

    No; Silken Armor's exclusion from the usual restrictions is exclusive to Martial Arts.

    Correct; simhata are animals.

    Is there any effect that can grant a lunar bond with more than one Exalt?

    I think there's a lot that would probably break, and not in fun ways.

    Nope. Not human, not an animal.

    I believe it falls under the "strange beast" category, although Meghan would be the one to give an authoritative answer on that.

    Things like aughdeighe, dune swarms, and mice of the sun do not count as animals.
