    Ask a question, get an answer

    I'm not sure if this was in the former forums, but I feel it should be made.

    This is a forum for Exalted questions that won't necessarily take up an entire thread, but rather require one or two answers from fellow players. I imagine this would cover newbie questions on the rules, canon and whatnot, but given that Exalted is a pretty complex game I feel this is necessary.

    I'll start: What's the point of the Socialize skill? Throughout my running of Exalted, I have never run across a situation where Socialize could be used where it couldn't be easily replaced by Presence. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I was thinking of using Mist (Corebook page 502), but his stats are comparable to the Young Dynast (clearly a 3 dot ally).

    The Wyld Barbarians sidebar on page 500 suggests adding supernatural merits to a mortal template. That seems like it probably works for god blooded.

    I was also considering using the Snakefolk Merchant stats.

    I know, right?

    We're half a dozen sessions in and I've yet to need stats for Allies -- "God-Blooded" has been enough.

    But I'm going to need stats, and I have no idea where to peg them. (Except "lower than a Young Dynast").

    Yes Indeed... That makes sense

    I get that, I do.

    ​The other day, my sister wanted to make a cherry crisp crumble, but we didn't have any cherries. But we did have some Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples. And the end result was an excellent dessert that I might've consumed the entirety of if I didn't have to share it with two other people.

    ​I still wouldn't call it cherry crisp crumble, though, nor serve it to someone who asked for cherry crisp crumble (at least, not without an explanation that this won't be exactly what they asked for).

    Right, but once again...

    ​1) It's Essence 4,
    2) It has several prerequisite Awareness Charms,
    ​3) It's not free, hearing even a single supplicant takes a three-mote expenditure,
    ​4) You have to have an Intimacy of at least Major intensity for the speaker.

    Though likened to gods often, the Exalted are not gods.

    Dedicated Unerring Ear. It's also Awareness 5, Essence 4, and costs 3m every time you use it, and only works when they're directly addressing you.

    As mentioned GSPs had a Charm to do that.

    There was also an Artifact that let you hear prayers.

    Solars already have a 3E charm that lets them hear someone they have a Major Positive Intimacy for in Awareness (forget the name).

    I'm assuming you encounter the word mostly on the Internet, a place not known for being overwhelmingly positive. Let me assure you, "ilk" doesn't have to describe a bad or hated thing.
