    That's correct; Peleps Deled is getting a full Quick Character write-up in Heirs to the Shogunate. (He also gets a namedrop in The Realm as the head of the Pinnacle of the Eye of the Hunt.)...

    Clearly your character is aware of the danger on a general level, otherwise their actions in response make no sense. There are any number of ways to interpret this, from "My opponent's fist is glowing and setting the air on fire, that's scary!" to "My opponent's perfect stance and quick, accurate delivery means I need to guard myself against this attack" to "I just have a bad feeling about this." Your character does not know anything about motes or dice or specific Charms. (Barring the occasional Charm whose effects are sufficiently apparent and memorable to be recognizable...

    That's not correct; the book says that the player knows what they're facing, not the character. (p. 216)...

    Demons, gods, and elementals should all get coverage in the smaller books between Exigents and Sidereals, assuming our planned pitches get approved....

    Rolling Lore to play a game seems like a reasonable approach at the table, and wouldn't require a Charm or special technique. While Attributes and Abilities are presented as wholly discrete things on a character sheet for purposes of game mechanics, that doesn't make them wholly discrete things in the setting any more than they are in real life....

    Only insofar as it has some bearing on the modern day.


    I don't know if we're going to nail it down in print, but we've generally been assuming 400-ish years....

    I assume that you're thinking of Lunar dominions? "Dominion" isn't a mechanical term; it doesn't represent anything supernatural or mystical. It's simply an expression for a locale or populace over which a Lunar has significant control or influence. As such, a Lunar can establish a dominion in much the same way that any other person might establish a power base....

    Probably not? I don't want to tie our hands regarding the specific mechanics of dematerialization vis-a-vis spiritual realms and/or possession; I just think that nemissaries having to ditch their bodies "at the door" is kind of silly and to be avoided. Exactly how that'll dovetail with broader systems and interactions is up in the air....

    replied to Awakening Evocations in Artifacts
    Free Evocation unlocks are not associated with any specific keyword or other rules text; they do not exist as a default option, nor is their availability hidden in some way. If you get to unlock an Evocation without spending XP, it'll say so in the Evocation description. Such conditions are specific exceptions rather than part of some overarching rule.

    Probably not? To be honest, I don't actually remember that rule, so I can't say why it was justified in the first place....

    The Wyld isn't exclusively at the borders of the map; there are patches of Wyld scattered across the Threshold. (Regarding your examples, there are noteworthy Wyld zones in the Wavecrest Archipelago.)...

    First Age Artifice isn't a visual theme; it's not something the untrained viewer can casually assess. And artifacts requiring First Age Artifice aren't the same thing as artifacts dating back to the First Age....

    Nah. Realm society is already pretty complicated for players and Storytellers to keep track of; I'd rather avoid adding more formal social classes....

    It's not something that would come up often; the Empress' sons were largely married off into the Great Houses, and her daughters often founded their own houses (or were occasionally adopted into other houses — see Rulinsei in the House Mnemon write-up). But it makes sense that the Empress' daughters passed on their names to their children as a general rule, rather than having their children change names after ascending to Great House status.

    As to whether they would count as Dynasts or patricians, patricians probably makes the most sense. Still, they'd have more prestige than the...

    We prefer to leave it to freelancers to acknowledge their own work (or not). I'd like to think they're all proud of their work, because I think the writing team has been doing a great job! But it's not my place to make that decision for them.

    EDIT: Ninja'd by Vance....
