  • Can you make a temporary major project slot for a project if you have spare slots?

    In particular, could you make a temporary major project slot to fuse into a superior slot, so that you have a permanent slot free for any major projects you start in the interim, rather than have to create a new temporary slot for every major project you want to try while working on a superior project?

        Is there any cool artifact armor in Heirs?
        The Lookshy chapter will have info on gunzosha armor, and a Kickstarter backer requested a suit of articulated plate for the artifact chapter.

        • If a Steel Devil stylist attempts Double Attack Technique, and rolls some threshold successes but not enough to land the second hit, is he still counted as having attempted a second attack for purposes of e.g. onslaught penalty?

          A strict reading of the Charm's wording makes it sound like the second attack only happens at all if enough successes are rolled to land it, but I'm not sure whether that's the intention. It doesn't make a lot of sense intuitively, but then, DAT might honestly be too good for its price if it's a cheap way to stack more onslaught penalties on your enemies...

          • Happy New Year, devs! I think I speak for all when I say thank you for your continued hard work on Exalted. Any New Year resolutions?

            • Is "Deathknight Exalted by the Neverborn during a brief flash of lucidity" going to be an option for Abyssals? Or is it purely Deathlords? If the latter, would it be safe to say one could remove the Neverborn entirely from the setting and replace them with some vague, wholly impersonal ominousness that empowers Deathlords and nothing would change?

              • Does the proposed Sorcery book have any Necromancy info and if not I'd it possible for necromancy to get a future supplement too? or is the Abyssal book going to be the entirety of necromancy?

                • What is the Immaculate view of the Unconquered Sun, generally speaking?

                  On one hand, he doesn't do the things that gods normally do to offend the Immaculate Order. He stays in Heaven and makes the sun cross the sky every day, and isn't out there trying to force or cajole mortals into worshiping him directly.

                  On the other hand, advanced Immaculates know that those damn Solar Anathema are his Chosen, right? Surely they can't be happy about that.

                  So what's the deal there? Do they see the Unconquered Sun as a largely noble god who mostly does his job well -- but he once made the terrible mistake of trying to turn men into heroes, only to discover that too much celestial power drove mortals mad?

                    The Unconquered Sun is seen as a prominent and significant god—one who stands perhaps just below the Elemental Dragons themselves among gods—though not one who merits or asks for worship. His connection to the Solar Exalted is known, but the circumstances that led to the creation of the Solar Exalted are not precisely defined in Immaculate orthodoxy, leaving room for what I'd imagine are some interesting theology debates.

                      The current plan is to introduce the mechanics for necromancy in Abyssals. That won't necessarily be the only book it gets coverage in.

                        If you want to have it happen in your game, sure.

                        The Monstrances of Celestial Portion allow the Deathlords to usurp the will of the Unconquered Sun—to an extent—in determining who will be Exalted as an Abyssal. While we haven't discussed what exactly happens if a Monstrance is destroyed, it's probably not going to snap back to just the Unconquered Sun making choices directly, so there's room for some weirdness.

                          I asked this question a little while ago, but due to my poor timing, it appears to have been skipped over.
                          Would it be possible to still get an answer?

                          Thanks for everything you do for this game.

                          • Can you activate a simple charm before combat if you have enough warning? Like if somebody is breaking through your fortress gate with a ram, or you have lookouts telling you about an arriving monster, can you activate Snake style just before the battle and have it count?

                            • Does Harmonious Presence Meditation enhance Jubilant Battle Proposition?

                              Can an improvised weapon sufficiently similar to a Martial Arts form weapon be used as one?

                                Yes, War Lion Stance counts as a defend other.
