    Lunars

    Just wanted to let you all know that Neall ran a group, including me, thru character creation and some combat for Exalted: Lunars. The combat was pretty awesome and Neall was fun as a GM. Thanks, Neal!

    I'm not entirely sure what the calculations are, but I know they can use their excellency in animal shapes, but still use their own stats to calculate the pools. In addition, if the animal has more dice in a pool than the Lunar does, those extra dice count against her limit.

    You're asking the wrong person for hope about this.

    All threads are Lunar threads, except for Lunar threads that start as such, which inevitably become something else.

    I'm saying that keeping a system based on traditions and hands on approach is not the best reason for keeping a system in place when more logical ones exist.
    America seems to have kept a number of "simple" options, like the weights and fluid measurement system and calendar system due to "that's the way we do it in these parts"

    I mean, don't get me wrong. The Chinese system is fine. But so is going day to month to year. Smallest section of time to biggest.

    Why are we even arguing about this?

    When you're dealing with a calendar (physical, or electronic), you're usually dealing with the calendar of your current year. The year doesn't matter unless you're going back through old records or projecting forward into future ones. So the year is last.

    After you've opened up the correct calendar, the most important thing to know is which month to look at, since the day won't matter until you do. So the month is the most important number, to confirm if you are already on the right month or if you need to go forward or back.

    That's why the day is considered only the second-most important number, and placed in the middle. Not because of linguistic conventions like "January the 1st" or "4th of July", but because of the simple logistics of book-keeping.

    .

    The numbers aren't relevant. That's just how you write numbers. Ignore them.

    I mean that years are bigger than months, which are bigger than days. Writing numbers backwards is pedantically confusing.

    DD/MM/YYYYY is only a sensible and logical arrangement of smallest-to-biggest if you write today as 90/20/9102. 09/02/2019 contains no fewer than five instances of bigger-to-smaller ordering (0 tens 9 ones; 0 tens 2 ones; 2 thousands 0 hundreds; 0 hundreds 1 tens; 1 tens 9 ones).

    I like to add dates to file names when archiving stuff on my computer. It's got to be Year-Month-Day.
