    The first eximorph of the modern era was created in Victor Frankenstein’s lab and may still be living at the North Pole

  • I wouldn’t make it Tier 3 (since I wouldn’t put them on par with Novas and Proxies) and I think Adventure! Daredevils/Talents should be able to hold their own - just an additional area of mechanics they have to invest in on top of normal Gifts. Possibly at the expense of Dramatic Editing if there’s no other way to keep them balanced with normal Talents....

    I think it’s pretty obvious who the Old Man running the International Detective Agency and it’s Irregulars in 1E Adventure! was.

    Though I like the idea of subverting expectations and revealing that its Dr. Watson (who replaces Arthur Conan Doyle in-setting alltogether, he became a popular author reporting on his real experiences with Holmes). Holmes was never actually seen again after he and Moriarty went over the falls, and Watson ended up making up more adventures to meet public demand and process his own grief.

    Do the Haslanti, the Haltans, and the Delzahn still have Secret Lunar patrons?

  • “More likely” is understating it. He caused mass global eruptions. But nothing in the setting indicates Novas’ nature are shaped by his subconcious as opposed to the subconscious of the people erupting....

  • You are assuming far more control of the Novas’ nature by Mal than I do Lian. Far as I can tell he bathed the Earth in Quantum energy to trigger eruptions, but he did not engineer Novas the way the Doyen engineered Psions.

  • I’m with you on no enforced sterility, but given Nova life spans, if they reproduce at the rate of baseline humans, there’s a major rapid overpopulation problem that arises. Hence my suggestion that while not being sterilized, successful conception is rare, any given Nova only successfully reproducing (if they’re trying to) once in a few centuries.

    And this is misinterpreted in-setting as sterility. Really it’s just their reproduction fitting their lifespans....

    replied to How likely is a 2-volume corebook?
    I admit Revised 3E “Exalted Core” and “Solars: Return of Glory” would be great provided they were 100% backwards compatible with all the existing hardbacks and supplements other than the original 3E Core.

    That said, this industry’s moving increasingly digitial so not accepting that option with POD is going to make solutions difficult.

  • Right, Mercer is Tier 3. My point was Tier 2 Talents (I.e. normal Player character right of the book Talents) are in-universe indistinguishable from baselines aside from remarkable skill and luck. Hence Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon style flight not being possible with Tier 2 Talent Athletics Charms.

    You could reskin Trinity for a purely wuxia setting that uses those rules to reflect it, but it would break down the second you mixed martial arts heroes with other Talents (as one might do in a Yellow Peril deconstructing Pulp game) since they’re being allowed to do feats other Talents...

  • With regard to 1E’s sterilization plotline, given the political shifts since the 90s that call for anti-internationalism conspiracy theories to be more in need of deconstruction than internationalism does: I’d suggest that Novas’ extended lifespan is balanced by a very low rate of fertility inherently. This is not widely understood in the 2020s however and “Utopia is sterilizing Novas!” rises as a bullshit conspiracy theory!

    Personally I’d make Sauron a Forge Titan. Besides the rings, I’d play up the industrialization ravaging Middle Earth angle that Tolkien was getting at. Deception can also make sense, though we only get that aspect of him in the Silmarillion, not at all in LotR, which implies to me while he has that Purview, it doesn’t drive his actions the way Forge does.

    Ungoliant is definitely a Darkness Titan. Her shape as a giant spider is comparatively incidental to her identity as Incarnate Night.

    4 additional Animal Styles we’ve never seen in previous editions in the Companion (Frog, Monkey, Bear, and Rat) was not something I expected but am very excited for!

  • As written Talents are not supposed to be perceivable in-setting as overtly defying the laws of physics. Athletics Gifts make you Parker from Leverage, not Yu Shu Lien from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

    I’m all for building a Wuxia setting off Talents, but it’ll take its own additional rules where on top of the normal Talent Gifts, martial arts styles open up overtly superhuman abilities.

    I’d love a book that presented a pure Wuxia setting, and then discussed transplanting Wuxia Martial Artists Into other settings, particularly Adventure! (With an eye toward...
