  • Also, problem with the "Darth Vader" archetype as an RPG boss is that typically they're going to need enough speed or ranged ability to stop agile PCs from running circles around them.
    But in countering that you also risk preventing them from escaping unless the boss allows it. At this point I'd question if we'd be best served by an alternative resolution system since this feels like the tabletop equivilent of a quick time event.

      That's what I was trying to communicate by talking about Powered by the Apocalypse game but your example is much more clear. Thanks !

        What would supreme power looks like ? Well the Solar are the embodiment of untamed potential, unconquerable majesty, heroism beyond duty and beyond hope. As such what would be ultimate enlightenment ? My answer : the understanding of oneself, one's power, and one's place in the universe. Such are the Solar that they can not only change or break Fate, but make and unmake the Rules and the Laws.

        An so behold this pinacle (I hope to inspire you), only achievable though deep meditation after a life lasting at least a millennium and shared with Exalted of all :

        Beyond Breaking Boundaries

        Cost:--; Min: Integrity 5, Essence 10; Prerequisites: 19 Integrity Charms
        Type: Permanent, Stackable; Tags: Story

        Having attained ultimate enlightenment the Solar not only truly knows herself, but understand and internalize her Solar Caste and how it fits around and shape her Exaltation. Then with a perfect thought she breaks through those limits to redefine herself as Something More.

        Through this Charm the Solar gains the advantages of another Solar Caste. She defines 5 new caste abilities in the new chosen Caste (and move favored abilities if necessary only*), one of which becomes her second supernal ability, and gains the power of this Caste Anima. She also gains a second Caste mark, and can choose to meld the two when she wants.

        This charm is stackable and can be re-bought after a century has passed. Such powerful changes if not stabilized through time and practice are one of the few theoretical ways an Exaltation could break.




        *if 4 or 5 are taken she moves 1 or 2. If only 3 are taken she takes the other 5. She can switch a favored and caste one for the purpose of making it Supernal. Well you see the gist of it I hope...
        Edit : just realized that at Essence 10 it doesn't really matter.... Well never mind then ^^
        I like this idea. I like that it's actually relevant to the original post, instead of the bizarre inter-edition drama that's overtaken this thread. I'm shocked even a moderator is getting in on it, frankly.

        • I think that has something to do with the original post being a Spinal Tap joke.

            I was born too late to know what Spinal Tap is even now, so as I said before I do not get the joke and at this point I'm so embittered by people condescendingly using seemingly any topic to assault you for daring to have a different opinion about Exalted editions that I don't want to.

            Seriously, I walked away from this forum for a month because of a family vacation and came back to find like 3 replies amounting to that. if I need to cite a "burden of proof" and be told I'm wrong for wanting to know more about the Primordial War's logistics instead of being invested in a bunch of characters the edition I prefer depicted as almost humorously incompetant most of the time, then I feel like I'm less talking about a game and more talking about a legal assignment we're all not being paid for.

              Excuse me?

              Go back to the start of the thread please because you’re the person who started the edition drama. I shared something that a developer told me during the playtest and you seized upon an opportunity to vent about how an aspect of the current edition isn't to your liking.

              Then immediately after posting in the what you love about Exalted thread you came back to this thread to vent some more. I’m of the viewpoint that sometimes venting about changes in game systems can be healthy, almost nobody plays a pure version of a given system or setting and holdovers don’t automatically make you a grognad telling the kids to stop having fun.

              It’s normally against policy to moderate discussions I’m part of, but after the last two posts I’ll make an exception because what you’re doing doesn’t appear to be healthy for you or the community.

              Please leave the thread.

                I can't even tell what I'm receiving an infraction for. I've seen the post before that one, where I was sincerely trying to give critique to what I assumed was a good faith attempt at charm design. I've never hidden my dislike for aspects of 3e, so I don't see how I'm "seizing an opportunity" just to talk about something I have to say about Exalted I intended to make offhandedly, which I did imply when I directly stated that I wanted to return to the original topic of discussion before others started addressing me directly about a subject I myself didn't feel was relevant to this thread. Unless there's some unspoken rule about not being allowed to talk about things people are talking to you about. I also find it concerning that you are in fact making an exception to the standard protocal for moderation.

                I appreciate your concern for my health, but will take the opportunity to inform you there is a strong separation between my working life and my gaming life. I certainly don't see how I'm being deletrious to the community when I've repeatedly said I've been trying to talk about the original subject and again-commented positively on Crop Weaver's charm.

                • At this point I'm locking the thread, there's way too much water under the bridge.

                  I'd like to thank Lanic for their role in making the elder exalted discussion bearable, while there's differences with what we want from Exalted you conveyed what your preferences were and I respect them.
