  • Are the Three Devil Princes of the far Southwest Lunars themselves, or are they just waiting for a worthy Lunar to bestow Eyebright upon?

    • ...sorry, I don't actually feel this answers my question because our group genuinely cannot find an answer that isn't bullying philosophy majors and hermits. Neither of which feels terribly epic in scope.

        It's the answer they gave. Sadly, you have to move on.

        • Alright. Different question: Our party's Twilight player wants to know whether it's valid to use the subtle alterations to the cosmos-aspect of an Ambition 3 Solar Working and Ephemeral Induction Technique in order to create a deity that can eventually be uplifted into an Incarnae? We're not sure if all Incarnae share Ignus' symbiotic recursive perfection connection to the Daystar especially since Luna appears to be much more independent from Silver Chair.

            At that point, you're firmly in "talk with your Storyteller and find an answer that makes sense and seems like something fun to play for the entire playgroup" territory.

            • Will the tools for creating custom Charms provided in Exigents be applicable to designing Martial Arts and Evocations, or would you say that those require additional considerations that won't be covered in Exigents?

              • Would it be possible for there to be soulsteel that has no souls whatsoever in it?

                • If you use a Charm to initiate a grapple outside of your turn, do you perform a grappling action (savage/etc.) immediately or not until your next turn?

                    The vast majority of it is applicable to Martial Arts and Evocations.

                      There are ancient deposits of soulsteel formed when the Primordials die, which don't contain human souls. That's about it.

                        Immediately.

                        • Does that count as your first round of control then (and your first actual turn of grappling as the second)?

                          What happens if you lose the control roll but your next turn is before theirs? Which can also happen if you grab them on your turn and then raise your initiative from lower to higher than theirs with a withering savage attack.

                          • Another Ambition 3 Solar Working related question: Is it possible to redefine the potential scope of charms in potentia you may learn as an Exalted to be capable of learning unique, perhaps almost spirit-like charms with a distant resemblance to your innate powers as an Exalted that will in the immediate gave give you unique and powerful abilities, and in the long term transfigure you into a fundamentally superior being to your patron? Basically emulating the Devil-Tiger progress of transhumanism from 2e.

                            Also there's a sidebar specifically for integrating Nine Aeons Thew with Heaven Thunder Hammer, and I was just wondering: Can you use it with Crashing Wave Throw to hurl even gigantic foes out to extreme range, or with Burning Sky Apocalypse Strike in order to deliver enough concussive force to devastate geographical structures or palaces?

                              Correct.

                              What happens if you lose the control roll but your next turn is before theirs? Which can also happen if you grab them on your turn and then raise your initiative from lower to higher than theirs with a withering savage attack.
                              Good question, no clear answer. I think it arguments could be made either way, so best to leave it up to the Storyteller.

                                Both great things to talk out with your Storyteller.
