  • if you reread what I wrote, you will notice what I said was that the range of Ba we got reads like something pushed together because of the speed of the Kickstarter to make sure we got to some more Utterances. What I said was that I suspected the original intent was that Ba was going to be Judges and Ren Utterances, but they changed it....

  • Ah, that would account for why there’s a Judge dedicated to punishing the sin of enslaving and oppressing others, despite literally everything we know about Irem.

  • I’m going to guess here that “Ba” covering what it does was a tweak because of the somewhat slower than expected KS pace. I’d bet money that new Utterances would have been “Ren”, and “Ba” would have been new Judges alone.

    we know what “Ka” was going to be, so that only leaves “Sheut”. Not positive how it fits with Sheut, but the other Immortals seems like the obvious missing topic....

    this is one of those specific target audience products, that if you don’t see the point of, you aren’t in said target audience. Narrative, streamlined Exalted will be HUGE for a lot of people....

    Isn’t the easiest fix just “you get a number of additional Knacks with your Visitation to fill out your additional Calling dots, regardless of how many Knacks you’ve already bought. So either 4 Heroic Knacks, 2 Immortal Knacks, or 1 Immortal and 2 Heroic Knacks”?

  • Interesting that Irem would recognize a deity solely dedicated to punishing slavers (An-Hotep) as one of their patron gods... given that the entire empire was built on mass slavery.

  • You are grossly underestimating Talents. Talents are Tier 2 characters on par with Psions, Psiads, and Superiors. Their incredible power just plays out more extra diagetically, but Origin level Scions don’t come close to the full might of Dramatic Editing and the ability to seize emergency Scale at will....

    Obviously it would require stacking him with less power at character creation, but if you wanted to lean into Clark’s connection to humanity resisting Transcendence, I might suggest the rule interpretation that lets you take Conditions as character creation to generate Momentum in game and give him Feeding Requirement and Kryptonite Vulnerability that way rather than tying it to Transcendence.

    Obviously it’s hard in Aberrant rules to balance his power level and humanity but that’s because of conceptual differences between Aberrant and most DC continuities.

  • Sure. I’ll be happy to wait if it’s something that’s coming. I was just feeling frustrated like I was supposed to have a better grasp on how the Arisen relationship with time works based on what we’ve already seen than I do....

  • It would kind of defeat the point of Apotheosis if there were. The whole point is to break the chains of slavery that keep pulling you back down rather than letting you live on your own terms.

    The issue is Mummy bodies don’t time travel. It’s the corpse hanging out in linear time when the Arisen is in the Duat. So the mummy from different points in their own timeline would be trying to occupy the same corpse in your description.

    Can someone involved in the game please clarify this?...

  • Why do people keep saying this like it remotely addresses the questions I’ve asked?

    The mummy has achieved apotheosis and is no longer going through Descents. He is up and about 10 years later when he previously had a Dedcent. So now is there somehow a second him at the same point in time, or does the previous Descrnt not occur from a linear perspective?...

  • Do we have an answer yet in what happens to your 2115 Descent you had if you then achieve Apotheosis in 2019 during your Fourth Turn?

    Does it just not occur from a linear POV, but still occurred in terms of the Mummy’s personal experience?

  • Well if Duat is a Lower Depth, then the Judges are anti-Supernal Beings who lack a particular facet of reality and thus hunger for it.

    perhaps they lack injustice, and thus feed on the souls of sinners

  • The Akhem-Urtu are dedicated to the secrets of Nomenclature and overridden by the Ren of their Temakh.

    The Shaukenashen are left with only their Sheut


    So do the the three new “Minor” Guilds complete the set as Pillar perversions?

    As tomb guardians the Kher-Minu have a clear Ka association.

    So which of the other two are Ba and Ab?

  • specifically, IIRC, the fire goddess is based on Medieval English claims about the pagan Irish to justify Christianizing invasion forces (they were already Christian of course)....

  • I think it’s been indicated that Guild-the attic Utterances might be a companion stretchgoal.

  • I don’t know how to justify Nomenclature without Ren requirements through the roof - but then I guess with how Pillar requirements now just make Utterances stronger, they could lessen the base powers and make the Ren requirements necessary for the full powered effect....

  • Speculating on the Utterances we might hope to see...

    I love the degree Mummies are Biblical-Miracle-Monsters, and toward that end I’d love to see

    - Command the Beasts
    - Kiss of Apep
    - Revelations of Smoke and Flame
    - Seeds of Life
    - Word of Amanuensis

    make a come back! Seeds of Life could use a conceptual rewrite, focusing on various possible powers with the magic fruit (probably tied to Pillar ratings for options), one of which can be magic human fertility, but that isn’t the sole Tier 3 power.

    Word of Amanuensis...

  • The problem is for mechanics to have the desired flavor, they have to actually have the desired consequence in play. TN shift in CoD rules really don’t. So to me it’s the difference between something that sounds interesting and evocative on the page and something that actually carries that out at the table....
