    Softcovers will normally be in black and white. But in this case, full color for Arms of the Chosen and The Realm was a successfully achieved stretch goal on the core book's Kickstarter campaign....

    Note that in regard to whether non-spirits can be part of the Celestial Bureaucracy, the Sidereals belong to the Bureau of Destiny.

    As per the text, "Its demonic nature remains recognizable"; it can alter its appearance to match another character's desires, but it will still look like a neomah....

    Insofar as we cover the Ebon Dragon, coverage will use the entire 1e writeup as a starting point....

    It's not their only weapon or even their only projectile weapon, but it has its uses. The Northeastern redwood forests have more open space than what we might think of as a dense forest, and Rule of Cool means that Exalted's war boomerangs can semi-reliably return to the thrower. And if you miss and your boomerang gets stuck in a tree, it may be possible to recover it, while a different projectile will probably fall to the forest floor and be unrecoverable due to the Fair Folk.

    It may be an elite weapon, though, not something used by the average Haltan warrior. It's definitely worth...

    This hasn't come up yet in dev discussion, but given the changes in the map—civilization extends farther north than in previous editions, and the north shore of the White Sea no longer consists of pack ice—this seems unlikely. My off-the-cuff assessment is that waters off the White Sea's southern coast may freeze solid on rare occasions as per the Little Ice Age, but are unlikely to freeze with any consistency south of Icehome. Iceships will remain a thing in Haslanti territory....

    Burial rites can prevent the creation of hungry ghosts, and appease ghosts with grave goods and memoriam. Some ghosts may be more likely to pass on to Lethe if they feel that their bodies have been treated respectfully and in accordance with tradition, but the rite itself has no supernatural power to prevent them from remaining in the Underworld rather than passing onward....

    The Ultimately Useful Tube itself is in there. A couple of other artifacts in the book have some sort of limited shifting ability as well....

    We're thinking of a Dreaming Sea book sometime in the next couple of years, but have not set any sort of release schedule anywhere that far ahead. Right now it's one book at a time. (Okay, maybe right now it's more like three books at a time!)...

    The original 1e Dragon-Blooded signature characters will still exist in the setting; most or all will appear in upcoming books. But we are writing a new set of signature characters for Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought. We have not made any firm decisions regarding later hardbacks as yet, but we are likely to follow the same pattern....

    started a topic Ammunition Check survey

    Ammunition Check survey

    Hey folks,

    Does your play group use ammunition checks (Exalted, p. 202), or do you count ammunition individually?

    Please only respond if this has actually come up in play, rather than your theoretical preference.

    Best,
    Eric


    EDIT: I forgot to add "Neither; we don't track ammunition at all and allow unlimited shots" as a third option.

    No, it's just that royal warstriders were fabulous rarities even at the height of the First Age and are nigh-mythical now. If there were one in the Realm, the Empress couldn't simply leave it in a vassal's hands.

    (All these "ifs" aren't me being coy; Vance and I haven't hashed this out yet. There's a zillion setting and system details we need to go over that have higher priority.)...

    It's not a biased answer, it's the only legitimate one, just like how I have to answer "Mnemon."...
