    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.

    And where Fate seems to play a part, it could just be Sidereals actively influencing things for you and your Circlemates in particular, rather than something inherent to Solar Exaltation.

    Inversely, maybe Circlemates are fated to meet again, but your Circle fails to because of Sidereal interference.

    Are gambits that allow a Lunar with an appropriate parasitic form to consume organs and other important bits of the body more quickly a possibility?

    I was hoping you'd say that.

    Probably not.

    Or will they instead shape the underworld / labyrinth.
    Not sure they'll get that either. I think it's more likely they'd get a wholly unique suite of high-end Lore Charms reflecting the nature of the Deathlords.

    Yes, in that you can't do it.

    I could see it.

    No particular ratio, but I'd like to include at least one every time we release a book that has martial arts.

    It's difficult to represent that without crunchier mortal-level rules for Martial Arts. Back when we had Techniques, we used them to reinforce differences between, say, Eastern Snake and Western Snake. It's something I want to exist in the setting, though, so I'm sure we could find a way to make it happen.
    I suspect simply saying “Yes, it’s a thing that can happen” is probably enough. Though adding in, say, Western Snake style to whatever the MA book will be might be a good reinforcement.
