  • Thinking up specialties

    It's always interesting to do this:

    War:
    Against superior numbers
    Urban warfare
    Poorly equipped forces
    Guerilla warfare
    Surprise attacks
    In harsh weather
    Mountainous regions
    Defensive
    Small team tactics

    Melee
    Improvised weaponry
    Outnumbered
    In tight spaces
    Bigger foes

    Athletics
    In cluttered areas
    Urban jungle
    Crowded areas

      But how would you do Crafting, Riding, Athletics, Sailing, and Performance, "In Bed"?

        We mustn't forget the nearly all purpose "While nude."

        Beauracracy, larceny, and Investigation: Counterfitting and fraud.

          You knit while laying in the bed.

              I do believe those are all euphemisms for some manner of hanky-panky or other, and we can’t have that here, this is a FAMILY SITE.

                There is only one thing to do!

                Bring out the secret weapon!

                Now begin... Holding hands!

                  Craft: Genesis isn't a thing anymore - you accomplish the same effect via Workings.

                    You're kinda of a downer, man.

                    That was a joke.

                      Yes, yes, Exalted genius crafters should specialize in creating magical science projects by having sex with them, har, har. I don't particularly find that funny or compelling considering how a number of people have been suggesting it completely straight-faced for years now. Particularly as regards female characters.

                        Whatever. I'm too tired.

                        Just go somewhere else.

                          Let me dredge some up from my NPC character sheets:

                          Bureaucracy:
                          - Anticorruption
                          - Customs
                          - Finance
                          - Shipping
                          - Satrapial Governance

                          Investigation:
                          - Anticorruption
                          - Finance
                          - Smuggling

                          Larceny:
                          - Diguise
                          - Embezzlement

                          Lore:
                          - Blessed Isle Trade
                          - Dynastic Commerce
                          - Dynastic Politics
                          - Exalts
                          - Spirits

                          Socialise:
                          - Galas
                          - Imperial Service

                          War:
                          - Recruitment
                          - Strategic Planning

                          Loosely classified as either a specialty in a particular context, or a specialty in a particular action (eg: You might be good at all applications of Investigation in a smuggling context but only have a specialty for Case Scenes outside of that.)

                              What is your definition of techonology? Swords and spinning wheels are "technology" too, and even in a setting which allows modern day electronic and mechanical items...

                              There is no way a "Craft: Technology" allowing you to make both laptops and shotguns could exist. They are both different abilities, Craft: Electronic Engineering and Craft: Gunsmithing. It´s like having "Craft: Old Things" allowing you to make swords, glass, a linen dress and a wooden ship.
