    Shit. Is chafe the wrong word?

    I have several skin conditions.

    Sometimes my clothes rub against my skin, leaving a few open wounds. And I mean open wounds. Intracellular fluid leaks out. No blood... But the skin has been breached, and you can smell the sweet rot.

    Sometimes sweat accumulates, and I start scratching. Then a layer of skin is literally peeled off.

    Exalted don't get that. Increased healing means that any minor cuts, bruises, aches, or sores just disappear.

    Now if your clothes make you chafe, it happens. You just wont get literal skin layers rubbed off.

    Exactly, their dentures get to be made out of adamant.

    Or walrus ivory. I think a Northern Lunar with some falsies made of walrus ivory would be pretty neat.

    Now, in fairness, it depends a bit on the quality of their diet; most fantasy immortals don't have diets rich in refined sugars, citric acid, or little bits of rock from less than stellar millstones. An Exalt that isn't dealing with them will probably have teeth that last practically forever; tooth enamel is, after all, the part of a human body which will last the longest by far.

    Funny thing about adult teeth; they don't actually grow. They're already inside your fully formed child skull, resting atop the baby teeth, and are simply extruded out when those are out of the way.

    Mind, as Lunars go, it depends on how much time they spend in any given human shape. I was thinking that Raksi could have some pretty cool teeth prosthetics, in keeping with Mahalanka's Mesoamerican look, but then recalled how Raksi is constantly shifting between human shapes.

    Shark Lunars, at the very least.
    It makes sense as an application of magic to restore lost limbs, but I don't think it would be comprehensive.

Small colds and fevers, you don't get. No things like eczema or sudden ant bites. No rashes or itching caused by sweating. You don't get layers of skin rubbed off, no matter how badly your clothes are made or how rough they are.
    No infection or minor illness I get, but I draw the line at the idea that Exalted are never physically uncomfortable.

    Those poor, poor teeth...

    I'm inclined to say no since humans only have the one pair of adult teeth, so it feels like it would fall into the regrowing a thing that shouldn't heal if lost territory. That said Exalts live a long time and the healing is pretty intensive so I'd say it could fix damage to one's teeth and over an extended timeframe I might allow them to get their new teeth so long as we aren't dealing with weird shenanigans and just as a weird thing that happens at my table.

    I would say no, both from a perspective of thinking that's covered by not replacing the completely severed, and because I think having replacements made from fancy materials is pretty cool.

    Just be kinda unathletic and asthmatic?
