  • Relentless Lunar Fury is a fundamental archetype for Lunars in combat(not the 2e version, Ex3 reuses the name and it deals with regeneration and raging). Regeneration has explicitly been called out as something Lunars do better than Solars. So you might have to deal with disappointment in some regard.

    Mind you, could be completely wrong. We won't have the manuscript until next year. But from what we've been told so far this is the case.

    • At Robert's urging, I'm trying to watch The Five Venoms on Netflix.

      Apologies, but I'm finding it boring. I don't think it aged well.

      Halfway through and neither the Lizard nor the Scorpion have fought anyone, and the scrappy kid has only intervened in one fight. The one fight that the real martial artists have had so far.

      It was almost like the kid used White Veil Style to tip the scales of the fight in the Toad's favor without anyone seeming to notice he'd rushed right into the middle of the duel. The Toad and Centipede dismissed him just as quickly as the police.

      He uses a staff, and I wonder if he could be interpreted to be using Laughing Monster Style. That was the Staff Grace-based shaping style of the raksha, and its purpose was to turn two other characters against each other.

      • Okay, so based on the recent release, what are we supposing for the first four Chapters?

        Chapter 1: Lunars
        Chapter 2: Silver Pact
        Chapter 3: Luminaries
        Chapter 4: Schools

        • I think schools and famous Lunars will likely be together, as the Shahan-Ya and their school are rather intertwined.


          My characters:
          Dr Soma Vaidya, viper-totem Lunar and kung-fu doctor
          Brother Alazar, Zenith occultist and last survivor of the Black Monastery of Leng

          • It'll probably have the schools and basic descriptions of the Shahan-Ya running it in the front, and then actual QCs for a few of them at the back.

              But neither of you offer an alternative for Chapter 4.

                Maybe the Caul? It seemed to be rather important to the Lunars from what we've seen so far.

                      One fewer chapters than Dragon-Blooded; I suppose because there was no reason to divide Chapter 2 or Chapter 3 in the way that What Fire Has Wrought needed to divide its pre-CC chapters.

                      Makes sense. Especially since the Lunar Exalted already buck numerical conventions to do whatever fits them best, vis a visa having 3 castes instead of 5.

                      • Not to mention they have to have a bigger chapter 9 than others due to not only including notable Lunar NPCs, but Animals to shapeshift into.

                          And folks.. Folks... Imagine the addon book (a la Heirs and Miracles) and what we'll be able to add to it. All the animals, monsters, kaiju, charms, martial arts, Caul details, etc. THAT's where the money is.

                          • As a general rule, chapter divisions are done to serve the needs of the book, rather than to conform to a pattern.

                              I wonder if including kaiju in the book, or associated supplements, might be a bit of a wrong tack considering that Lunars can't acquire their Heart's Blood.

                              Like, Lunars can turn gigantic, and maybe a bit weird, through their own powers, but it's been made fairly clear at this point that they only shapeshift into people and animals, and the largest thing that probably counts as a natural animal is still likely to be different in form and function than what most people would regard as kaiju.


                              I have approximate knowledge of many things.

                                I would agree with you, but I could see it going either way. I mean the chapter has "Monsters" in the title, so it must include something more than just bears and dogs and giraffes.
