    Do we know how Tepet Arada is both aligned with his mother’s house and has Tepet descendents?

    A). He married a distant Tepet cousin

    B) He married a Patrician or Found Egg adopted into House Tepet by the marriage

    C) He married another House Dynast, but as a widower returned to his birth House and he has Tepet descendents because a son (bearing the name of Arada’s wife’s House) married a Tepet woman

    D) He married and had kids with a man, and was the older partner so it was a Tepet household

    What’s the alternative though? Not giving them the Charms that punch above their weight class? 3E’s solution to those raw elemental power effects that transcend normal DB power is making a strategic limit on how they can be used. I suppose another way to do that would be to just limit them to once per scene with a reset condition, but that’s also a “tax” under the same logic....

    While Sorcery is (as in canon) a numinous potential that one must be inexplicably gifted with to be initiated - Thaumaturgy is not. Thaumaturgy is just applied Occult practices. Any sufficiently adept occultist can learn Thaumaturgy. Most villages in Creation have a hedge witch. Drop the “Thaumaturgist” Merit. Buying 1 dot rites require a minimum of Occult 2. Buying 2 dot rites require a minimum of Occult 4.

    Are God-Blooded DBs considered purified by their Exaltation and not subject to extra scrutiny? Or a lower tier of scrutiny comparable with the casual distrust of DB sorcerers among other Dynasts?...

    The village witch is why thaumaturgy exists in the game. Now if you’re altering the setting that’s fine, but it is an alternate setting then.

    Sorcery requires an initiation in-setting. It’s not just an in character decision to learn a Charm - that’s just how it’s mechanized for players. Being one of the few students who attends the Heptagram (or equivalent institution) is a suitable initiation - but failing that a DB would need to go out and seek Mara, an Ifrit, drug themselves with alchemy for years, etc etc....

    It would be terrible for the setting if that's what you mean. But thankfully in-setting characters don't make decisions based on how accessible an option is for a player (if it was, every person in Creation would be Exalted). The forms of Initiation means Sorcery isn't just something an in-setting character can just opt to dabble in.

    But if you want your characters to always be lucky enough to have gained access to Sorcery, sure no problem....

    Drop the term "pelagrothrope"

    Use "pelagial" as the catchall for aquatic human peoples.

    "Pelagic" is a distinct language family of sign-based dialects beneath the Western sea.

    The albino blubbery mer people ruled over by their undead Dreaming Princes in the City of Shining Coral are called the Ojs-loth. They are pelagials (i.e. human), rather than a distinct prehuman species.

    Can a DB community/heritage lack one or more elements in its bloodlines? Specifically i’m trying to imagine the aquatic communities whose DB lineages made up the bulk of the Chosen of the Depths, and wondering whether they would or could lack Air and Fire Apects...

    What i’m imagining is not trimming people in customizable ways. It’s feeding on Intimacies via an intimacy to reduce the person to a caricature who only exists in relation to the Raksha. The only customizable part would be determining (via the individual and the Raksha’s actions) what that one remaining Defining intimacy to the Raksha would be....

    replied to What are Iconic Fae Powers?
    I kind of like the idea of instead of Raksha turning the dream-eaten into mindless drones, consuming a subjects’ other intimacies while building an intimacy to the Raksha, and when the subject is entirely eaten, they only have that single intimacy left leaving them a stock player in the Raksha’s narrative defined solely by that role, even if it’s an antagonistic one.

    So someone becoming increasingly obsessed with killing a particular Raksha could actually be in the process of being dream eaten, as the Raksha consumes all their other intimacies through that intimacy until they’re...

    I know Heroes of Niobraran is no longer planned, but can we expect any more exploration of the undersea setting as a genre-venue in currently planned books?

    replied to East/Central African Pantheons?
    In addition to what Mataeus said, Eastern Bantu religions tend to be heavily henotheistic bordering on monotheism + ancestor worship, with the ancestors in question being personalized to each community and family. They’re extremely hard to cram into the Scion cosmology.

    That said, the Nyanga gods as appear in the Mwindo are one of the more fleshed our full Bantu pantheons. The Congo may be more westward then you were thinking, but it’s still nominally Central African. I’ve been using the Swahili (as the lingua-franca in the region) ““Miungu” for said Pantheon.

    Attribute 1 does not reflect being literally disabled in any Attribute. That would require a Flaw stacked on in addition - which i’d be SUPER reluctant to allow with Intelligence because that could go sideways into insulting caricature of the disabled so quickly....

    Would the illicit Exigent be someone we’ve heard of before? I’m assuming Plentimon’s Chosen who won his Exaltation at the game table wasn’t what the Unconquered Sun had in mind when that particular bit of the Exigence was handed out, for example......
