    Current plan is just not to talk about it. (And not to drop hints about it.) What matters is that she's gone. I feel that a Storyteller who wants to make the cause of the Empress' disappearance relevant to their game is best served by coming up with specifics that fit the needs of the characters and story at their table....

    Yeah, I don't personally expect to have much opportunity to dwell on Autochthonia for a very long time.

    In the meantime, use Compass: Autochthonia. ...

    We are not fond of "Half-Caste." Dragon-Blooded definitely won't produce god-blooded offspring (except maybe with a god, of course); Solars and Lunars may pass along something supernatural to their children under the right circumstances, but not necessarily the same sorts of gifts that a powerful god-blooded scion might possess....

    Unfortunately, most of these questions fall into the category of things that we haven't hammered out authoritative answers to, and we'd rather not tell you things that might easily change during development.

    Regarding cities and gods, not all cities have a designated city god in the eyes of the Celestial Bureaucracy. This is partially due to the breakdown in communication between the terrestrial spirit courts and the Heavenly City, and partly due to political and bureaucratic breakdowns in Heaven itself. The specifics vary widely....

    A less lethal environment for younger Dragon-Blooded and a lower rate of celibacy. Whether their reduced focus on "well-bred" marriages affects Exaltation rates is unclear.

    Current estimated numbers for Lookshyan Dragon-Blooded are around 3,000....

    Our current estimation gives Prasad somewhere in the range of 2,000 Dragon-Blooded. These are not part of the Realm's count.

    Yes, Prasad is a force to be reckoned with....

    With the understanding that I'm not currently immersed in the relevant material, and my answers here are subject to reassessment —


    Yes, it's correct. It's fine for a foreign Dragon-Blood visiting the Isle to use jade currency, and mortal Dynasts are regularly assigned the authority to use jade.


    As I understand it, yes and no. The exchange rate was normally fixed, but was subject to circumstantial manipulation by the Empress, who would offer exchanges at favorable rates (via the Imperial Treasury and Imperial Purse) as an economic and political tool....

    I believe this is something that was deliberately left out of the core so the Storyteller could freely adjust the numbers in her Creation to taste. I personally lean toward the low end in my home games, so that when a village actually has a god in it, that god is distinctive and flavors the village with its presence — and so that if I decide not to have a god or just forget to include one, it's not weird. But you can dial the numbers up without breaking the setting, as long as you think about the consequences and take them into account.

    We've been hoping to put a book on cults and...
