      But if you ban progenitive essence then no one’s kids will Exalt.

        I admit I don't even see the conflict between one concept and the story Simon's telling, but I admit, it does an admirable job of putting a stop to DB baby factory farming before it starts.

        I also admit that I agree with the "most monks are outcaste, so it's not an objectively sound plan... but there is certainly porn that rolls with the idea in the Realm."

          A little necromancy because I have little interest in making this a new topic.

          I think Progenive Essence suffers from being a relatively new concept that people have not really had chance to play around with yet, so its easier to reject outright than work around. Also from a storytelling perspective I can see why people might want an unethical way of creating a lot more Dragon-Blooded without advocating it.

          The Dragon-Blooded 'breeding farm' suffers from the fact that its not a particularly clever plan in the grand scheme of things, particularly when its success is somewhat rooted in the notion that nobody has really thought of it before.

            Well we have some early scratching around the concept of Progenive Essence before it was named such. Most notably Tepet Leseral (Exalted: the Dragon-Blooded pg 117) who was pushing her body beyond its normal capacity to have children until she died of old age at 102. If the civil war wasn't so imminent I could see House Tepet looking into trying to recreate her 'success' in order to replenish their numbers.
