    Sure, if the timing is right. This might be problematic if the grandmother / adoptive mother has had or is planning to have a child of her own within a few years of this one, and the family wishes to pretend that the adoptive mother is the biological mother.


    Subterfuge is certainly possible. The family would prefer to conceal the fact that the actual mother had a child out of wedlock while in secondary school; that lack of judgment would reflect poorly on her, and might interfere with her future prospects. (If the father and his family become aware of these circumstances, they...

    Developer interview on Onyx Path podcast

    Hey folks,

    I figure that y'all might want to hear my podcast interview with Dixie Cochran and Eddy Webb on the Onyx Pathcast.

    Best,
    Eric

    I don't think we elaborated on this in Dragon-Blooded? A shotgun wedding seems highly unlikely. The father has no claim on the child, his poor judgment makes him an unsuitable husband, and neither parent is in any position yet to properly raise offspring. Most likely, the child will be adopted by another household within the mother's house....

    While nothing's set in stone, my current inclination would be to include a sizable write-up of Yu-Shan in the Sidereals book, with a companion book covering Getimians....

    Grave violations of the monastic code. The only one specified in the text is violation of the vow of celibacy, but things like persistent heresy or wanton murder should also suffice.


    No....

    There are a lot of possible explanations. The most obvious is that the young monk's behavior could potentially embarrass the Order, but hasn't reached the stage where she'd be expelled from the monkhood. Perhaps her superiors see her as rebellious, or maybe she's obviously smitten with someone and is being sent far away lest she break her vow of celibacy.

    Alternatively, someone outside the Order might pull strings to make it happen. Her family might see her outspoken political views as an embarrassment and want her out of the way, or she might have humiliated a rival student whose...

    "Power armor" does not, in and of itself, require First Age Artifice. (Gunzosha armor requires First Age Artifice because it's designed to allow mortal wearers to access its Evocations, not because it has power-armor thematics.)...

    Lunars: Fangs at the Gate will have a section covering the Caul from the Lunar perspective.

    This works like ordinary people's aging, however, in that sometimes a Dragon-Blood may show signs of aging faster or slower than the norm, whether from lucky inheritance or from treating their body especially well or poorly....

    I think Meghan has a few more elementals lined up for future releases of Hundred Devils Night Parade. I also wrote a named ifrit for Adversaries of the Righteous.

    You'll definitely see a bunch of new elementals in other books farther down the line, but we haven't had a chance to start development on that yet....

    Note that anyone who wants to do cartography for official Exalted publications should send in some samples via the Onyx Path art submission page:

    That sounds fair, much like the corebook example of a dues-paying Guild member.


    Depends on the character's situation. Could be zero dots, especially for a monk new to the area who's using a monastic name rather than a Dynastic one. Reputation, connections, holding some sort of local authority, etc., could all be used to justify a higher rating. This is something to discuss with your Storyteller.


    Not explicitly stated, but insofar as monks take a vow of poverty, it's fair to assume that they no longer receive stipends while in the Order....
