  • More of a business side of thing, but now that work has started I might as well ask. Exigents is pretty plainly atypical for an exalt book, with how scattered and different they are and that it's more of a guide to charm design plus three mini exalt types with some bare bones stuff. Given that, is it still going to keep on track like a regular book would, so the kickstarter happens around early next year when lunars is coming out, or is it safe to assume it'll be a few months later then normal?

    • Random thought: Given the unique metaphysics of Creation, is an animal that can...well, not thrive, but survive in the Underworld inherently magical for the purposes of Lunar shape acquisition?

      • Can a Dragon-Blooded have several subordinates marked with Benevolent Master’s Blessing at the same time? The charm lacks the stackable keyword, but do multiple separate activations (on different individuals) count as stacking the charm?

        • There was an old bit of lore that there were 13 gates to Malfeas in creation that could be accessed--is there something comparable that makes visiting hell possible, or is the Basalt City more like Yu Shuan then the Wyld/Underworld in that it is distant and unlikely to intersect?

          I know We Know the Devil is part of the inspiration for Infernals, but have any other works cropped up as touchstones for their direction?

          • Fighting chains are medium-class weapons constituting a weighted head (blunt or bladed) on the end of a chain, yes?

            How does this compare to European flail, or chained mace? Would it be represented differently, as a Melee weapon? Or is so impractical as a weapon that you need a Martial Art to use it, and thus it's not really any different from a Chinese meteor hammer?

              Flails and maces are, I think, a conceptually separate thing from fighting chains.

                There are ways from Creation to Hell, some of which may be the same as those in past editions.

                The Count of Monte Cristo—and V for Vendetta (the graphic novel, not the film), which I find to be a thematic echo of it.

                  You can have it on multiple people. Stacking would be using it on the same person.

                    We don't have a specific date in mind, and there are factors that play into when Kickstarters go up unrelated to our end of things—mainly, Onyx Path's other Kickstarters. That said, Exigents is more or less a "regular" splatbook for those purposes, insomuch as regular exists.

                      To hurt the gods and the world that betrayed them with the greatest weapon they know.

                      Were they a way for the Yozis to be free again? if so,how can the infernal exalted free their masters?
                      The Yozis cannot be freed.

                        We probably won't introduce new Yozis. There's a fair chance we'll see demons descended from Yozis who previously haven't had their demons written up.

                          You can use it. The disengage requirement only applies to the basic "reflexive move" action.

                            Is there any time constraint between the conclusion of the hunt and the consumption of heart’s blood? Is there one of the length of the method the killing blow takes?
                            No.

                            Poisons are one thing, but if a lunar infects their target with a terminal disease, and her target succumbs a week later, does she have to be present at the moment of his death?
                            Proximity isn't a requirement, just responsibility.

                            Can the heart’s blood be reconstituted if it’s no longer present in liquid form in the cadaver?
                            Snacking on a heartful of congealed blood is close enough.

                            Also: does anything break if you allow a Lunar to choose a different acquisition ritual to start with instead of the sacred hunt, rather than As-well-as?
                            It's a significant part of Lunar thematics.

                              You have to ingest the blood (or closest analogue) that is inside of their heart (or closest analogue). As long as you get that done, any other details are irrelevant.

                                We haven't made firm decisions either way. I like Han-Tha, but I think Filial Wisdom would need some reconceptualization to be usable.
