    Need ?







    I like Solar, which mean that if a Solar appears in my game then I will try to make her as nuance as possible (why do people think I harp on so much about Lyta and Havesh). And the problem is, I don't really the other splat, so it's kinda affect on the NPC's fate when they appears in my Creation (as evidence by the thread title), like, I think that a random househusband has better endings in my Creation than non-Solar Exalted.

    So can people give some reasons or examples on what so good about non-Solar Exalted, I mean, it kinda hard for me to treat DB's NPC with any kind of nuance when their book tells me to fuck off because the Realm don't like weak and sissy homo, I'm actually more comfortable playing a gay character who is a Solar. The RoseBlackEmpress's wanking and a legion of imperialism apologist are just too bleh. Plus reading "China-inspired" and "Elemental Samurai" in the same sentence fills me with.........all kind of funny feelings. Basically there is nothing that I like about them at the moment. Wait ! that's actually not true, they do have a good thing going for them i.e Mnemon, the greatest NPC that has ever been written, vote Mnemon for Empress in 2016 !

    Lunaaar.....never understand what the hot about Luna, hate animal and the aesthetic of Conan (I bet that their Ex3 book will be filled with nothing but those), love love love moon's symbolism.

    Sidereal, Night Master, is it food ? The Black Company, is it bacon ? Traveler in Black, new diet soda ? Jame Bonds, oh him I know, haaaate this type of men. Ketchup Carjack and the Gold Faction Bruce Lee guy is so so very repugnant. And I just feel bad when I don't know what to use Shun the Smiling Lady for and people tells me "Sidereal need a special type of player to be fun". Saving grace, having Venuuuuuus as their patron.

    Abyssal has the most pretentious naming scheme ever, I tried creating a Circle and thinking up a name for each of them was just too laugh inducing. I would be super scared of them if I was playing a mortal, but I was actually playing a bunch of Solar so.......And then there are Deathlord and the Neverborn, how can I like a splat who take their fashion advice from the Lover !

    Infernal, the splat that ruins the Yozi, plus Excellency that remind of of animu character that I really dislike. And I swear that Infernal character are ridiculously over-design, this combine with animu aspect just make me think of them as a bunch of people who got infect with Middle School Syndrome, it's not a promise sign when you are as edgy as Abyssal. Not to mention their mascot is Ligier who looks so disgustingly hideous, I will rather die than letting his saggy wiener anywhere near me. Good thing about them ? Their Sigs, and Hentai Cocoon of course !


    Huh, you can't edit Title once it's pass 5 minute ? :'o

    So anyway, it's actually a secret, but my weak points my cute guy, burly man and people in pretty cloth, my Like meter for a splat gonna sky rocket if they have any NPCs like that ~

    ....no. probably nothing fatal. the person in question had done nothing physically hurtful, but emotionally hurtful. it does not matter, maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it, but you are right that there is a thing I can see myself doing irresponsibly with power and that is enough for me to concede the argument.

    That said, the illegality of an action most likely won't change just because a superpower is used to do it (teleporting into someone's house would still be trespassing), and assuring a person is completely ruined, socially and financially, generally involves doing some illegal shit.
    Usually does, but depending on the powers in question wouldn't have to. Such as being able to see just far enough into the future to play the stock market (no... I didn't borrow the idea from Aberrant's Pedro "The Mathematician" Santiago and thus tie back into Onyx Path... nope, not at all >.>) to make all the money you need to use your wealth to do that would be legally questionable (you don't have insider knowledge by the letter of the law, but you would by the spirit), and it would be next to impossible for anyone to be able to tell that you had that sort of power. Buying up the land, mortgage, business, etc. that the person worked for would go a long way towards that ruining them. Wouldn't change it from being a horrible thing, to do with a super power though.

    I always assumed the point of the Bull, besides being an example of Solar might, is to be an antagonist suitable for northern parties. Defeat the barbarian empire and save the civilised north (and Linowan). Or have the moral ambiguity of joining the barbarian empire, but since they already have 5-6 Solars, I assume that's not the idea.
    Right. Most of the Solars in the system and setting books were written to be antagonist's, I think. As someone who never had any of the novels or similar until I got them with Ex3, they were all I had to base things on outside of the bits and pieces in the chapter fictions.

Even if I'm completely selfish, there are legitimate reasons to not do this.
    In this hypothetical you are aware, or at least believe with 100% certainty, that they are untraceable. You are as certain of this as you are of your own existence. Nobody is offering you this skill, you have it naturally. Or lets say you had the mystical power that everything you said would be believed by both the person who heard it and anyone they told, how often would you call in sick to work? How many times would you wake up and REALLY not feel like going into your job, so you call in saying "Hi, yeah I'm sick again, but it's not a problem because I'm a good employee and you like me. I think it's my fourth sick day this month, but nobody should worry.".

    Also your response completely misses the point of the hypothetical, it's like saying "Can god make a rock so heavy that he himself can not lift it?" and then picking apart the physics about lifting a rock that is most certainly heavier than whatever planetoid it is sitting on and therefore can it really be said to be lifting the rock off the blah blah blah, that's not the point.

    What I'm saying is that there is no "use powers responsibly" button.

    Well yeah, we're human beings with limited information. You could just as easily say "Did you sit down today? Well when you sat down it triggered an avalanche that wiped out a town. You're now a mass murderer lol". This is cooperative story telling and you can just declare the violent revolution to end in the death of innocents if you really want to. The PC has zero control of their environment and the reactions of NPCs. Le shock.

"There's only enough left for one of you!" he decrees, "But who eats and who starves?"

For example if you had crazy untraceable hacking skills and could put yourself on Microsoft's payroll for $10,000 every two weeks, would you? It'd be a pretty grievous misuse of your power, but that's a free yearly salary of $260,000 that you can do whatever you want with. Go traveling, scuba dive down to a coral reef, get a new addition to your house and save up for a cottage or something. Never have to worry about money again and be able to peruse all your hobbies or whatever career you wanted. I don't know about you but if you offered that power to me I definitely wouldn't be able to resist.
