    Does the Primordial dream have phone reception, BTW?

    In all seriousness, though, I can definitely agree with this, especially for the more tech-based Conspiracies (TFV, the Cheiron Group etc)....

  • This might not be such a simple question, but how does the Eye of Heaven Atavism actually manifest in-character? Is it like visions you see in your dreams and only later understand, when you stand in front of whoever it was that you saw? Is it an instinctive certainty that if you strike just here, you'll get through the armour?...

    Someone actually wrote up a joke Heroic Gift called 'Gaston's Choreography', the gist of which being that so long as the hero sang and danced, the Beast had no choice but to be a part of the routine, and neither could attack the other....

    Ah, thank you very much. My brain is very, very ill-suited to maths in general. The words that swirl around up there have an ongoing feud with the numbers. Letters that turn traitor and join the algebra legions are even more hated. ...

    It was more to do with the actual monetary value of a jade talent vs a silver talent and so on. I get the relative value within each currency, I just don't get how the value measures up on a relative scale...

    It's more to do with the denominations and the relationships between Guild and Jade currency.

    On Currency

    I must admit, I was thoroughly confused by the currencies explained in the 3e corebook. I don't suppose that any of the good peoples of the forums would be kind enough to explain it to me, could they? *makes doe eyes*

    There's a quote that, for me, rather wraps up the thing. it's from Morgiana herself:

    "[Everything will be okay] Because my legs and my body are faster, stronger and sharper than anyone else's."

    Note the fact that she refers to 'my body' and 'my legs', intrinsic parts of her, not her skills. I'd personally throw my opinions with Morgiana being a Lunar, but that's just me.

    replied to Help with a Scenario
    ​With those suggestions, I think I have an idea. Namely, that the characters independently stumble onto the Stair as the result of a series of communications (emails, letters, phone calls etc), none of which actually reference anything about the Stair or even anything particularly out of the ordinary for each of them, eventually leading them to open a Door onto the Stair, each quite by 'accident'. Waiting for them is one of the Dwimmerlaik, an ancient race who once warred against the Gossamer Lords and were defeated (although he certainly doesn't tell the PCs this at first). This particular...

    replied to Help with a Scenario
    ​So, are you suggesting that I give them some kind of in-character guidance (an ancient book, a mentor of some kind) and then work from there? The idea is that the PCs are basically utterly green Gossamer Lords and that the players will be learning more about the setting as they go. A reasonable part of the first arc is intended to be based around A) finding their way back to their original world and B) learning some basic skills of the Gossamer Lords (Sorcery, cantrips etc) and discovering that the hard limits on human capability have pretty much fallen away for them. The whole thing is intended...

    Help with a Scenario

    So, I have an idea for a campaign in the diceless RPG Lords of Gossamer and Shadow​, where in the vanilla game the PCs are to all intents and purposes Planeswalkers who traverse an infinitude of alternate universes by means of the 'Grand Stair', which is a literal and nigh-indestructible (and possibly living) staircase that winds between worlds.

    ​The beginning of the campaign is going to basically be based around the PCs, who at this point are basically the players - the game is to be not entirely unlike a self-insert. What I would like some advice on is how to have the PCs enter...

    Well, it is an anime, as opposed to just being inspired by actual anime.

    The style is very, very Exalted and I think that stuff like Household and Metal Vessels could probably be ported over in some fashion with a general down-scaling of magnitude of power. Hell, something more like a real metal Vessel would make for pretty much a textbook N/A Artefact. Even then it might need a little toning-down, but regardless.

    As for Sinbad, I think that he kind of falls in the middle ground between Eclipse and Zenith. He's got the charisma of a Zenith alongside the more negotiator-esque...

    Is Magi Exalted?

    Just as the name says, does anyone else see some marked similarities between the Magi anime franchise and Exalted? More in spirit than in setting, but the point remains. I think it's especially obvious with Sinbad, who would make a near-perfect Zenith (the guy managed to set up an entire new kingdom within his own lifetime). Also, many of the magoi-manipulation techniques seem a great deal like Charms of one sort or another, especially Hakuryuu's thing where he charges magoi into his glaive and then strikes with it sounds exactly like a Solar Melee charm.

    More to the point, what elements...
