    I agree, but damn is that good. I don’t think broken, but still seriously powerful....

    Armoured kraken.



    I also have a question, am I reading With One Mind’s last effect correctly? If you even attempt a distract gambit the beneficiary doubles 7s on their attack roll even if it fails?...

  • Favourite was probably the Blessed Isle, although that was only about two sessions of a six session mortal game. A group of mortals, including an unexalted Dynast, were sent to the North on a mission by Nellens Poramo, except one of his political enemies thought it was some kind of bid for more power so they sent an exalted assassin after them, and taking advantage of the rise in banditry to the North of the Isle they...anyway I liked it. Then the game went to the super far north and became a desolate horror game.

    I think the worst one was the West game, just because lots of us were...

    If you do homebrew something let us know what you come up with, expanding first circle sorcery is good for absolutely everyone.....

    Are you the ST? If you are you could very easily homebrew a spell, I’m sure some forumites could make some suggestions as well....

    An artifact javelin hurled by a Solar kind of already is an artillery piece. The mighty harbor canons that protect Lookshy and various other places, the ones that hurl canonballs and are so large that only First Age warships can carry them, deal 15 damage unmodified by strength, and a Solar hurling an artifact javelin with 5 strength deals 17....

    That's just Solars too. Lunars have like, all the charms apply to throwing shit, and DBs I don't think had any stealth or crippling ones....

    Definitely not just rivals. Prasad sends more jade to the Blessed Isle than any other two satrapies put together, and they send a lot more than just jade. Hitting Prasad is a serious blow to the Realm, especially since it's too far away to easily reenforce. The downside is that it's also one of the most powerful satrapies anywhere, maybe THE most.



    I think characters in Exalted are just that fast. If you give them three combat rounds to motor away they can withdraw past longbow shot range. Same for the reverse, if you're charging a stationary archer and start at long...

    Do you know what Prasad is?

    EDIT: Please assume my tone is not condescending there, I just think as soon as you read anything about Prasad you’ll have your answer....

    I think you’re right. Also don’t forget you can spend a willpower on each roll to complete, and if you’re forging a Warstrider at least every roll will be a 2 die stunt, maybe 3.

    Max excellency for 17 dice, 23 for Flawless Facet, 27 with Bracers of Crafting, 29 for a stunt and maybe 30 for exceptional workshop. Then with double 8s, willpower and another success from another level of stunt it’s possible, but it’s definitely the capstone or at least the first arc of a high essence campaign....

    It's doable. If you have some big mix of max stats, full excellency, stunt, willpower, Flawless Facet Realization, the Essence 5 Strike the Dragon-Anvil, Eternal Omphalos Forge, and Blazing Dragon-Smith Arete, a Twice-Striking Lightning Prism, and Bracers of Universal Crafting, Arete the Orichalcum hand, . If you have all of that you should make it by a decent margin. There could also well be things I'm not thinking of, one major one is almost certainly a crafting manse that would help out....

    Oh yeah, that’ll depend on the specific NPC too. If every time you mention Wullerton every local instinctively spits on the ground that’s a pretty easy guess, but if you’re meeting with a particularly guarded diplomat or stonefaced ascetic monk then that’s when your Socialize Supernal Solar pours out her motepool and looks into their souls.

    Actually come to think of it that might be kind of good advice for your players too. If they go into somebody’s home and see that they have a painting of their nation’s queen hanging above the fireplace, they might be able to tentatively note an intimacy of respect for her without needing to Read Intentions. It’s less of a sure thing, but you didn’t need to roll to overcome guile either.

    Some basic conversation might also just reveal that, just in the way they talk about her....

    I don’t think that’s something you have to give up. There are some people with multiple defining intimacies that make them completely at odds with eachother, even if they individually might not be so bad. If your players are Solars and they’re messing about anywhere near the Realm they’re going to have a pretty big hurdle to overcome already keeping their identity a secret or having to deal with people that think they’re face-stealing demons, depending on the exact area. It just doesn’t have to be everyone. There’s places in the game that are set up specifically to be nearing the...

    You might start by letting your players know that they don’t have to always use instil actions to get positive intimacies towards them. Helping people, sharing stories, stuff like that. Also you could remind them that they don’t really need to engage the system unless there is a dramatically appropriate reason to do so.

    So instead of thinking “what good reason do they have to believe the party?” Try thinking “Does this person have a good reason to be skeptical or resistant to this?” Also think of context, where they are, how the PCs are presenting themselves, ect. Are...

    You might be thinking of Pneuma Satrapy. Or possibly another holding that isn’t Lords Crossing Dominion.

    Lord's Crossing actually IS a Dominion, one of the ones that shares its name with its capital. It's just south of the Imperial Mountain....

    Ledaal is the mighty Arjuf Dominion, Sesus has Chanos Prefecture on the northern coast, Tepet has Lord's Crossing, Cathak is Myion Prefecture, Mnemon has Dejis Prefecture near the north east imperial mountain, V'Neef's got Eagle's Launch in Eagle Prefecture, and Ragara on the south coast has Corin Prefecture....

  • Lunars should be a really fun one for this!

    I have to wonder why Terrifying Forest-Devil Mask wasn't in it for DBs though, are you just doing socialize style stuff?...

  • I think the biggest risk is actually getting intentionally crashed off the hop and really hoping your decisive grapple gambit lands, especially since I don't think Vicious Lunge actually does let you grapple from crash. Even if it does you're only going to get 3 dice to make that gambit roll.

    I mean, it doesn't really matter, if you decide to excellency your Join Battle, snatch them in a clinch, crash them with Titan Straightening Method, hit them again with Raging Wrath Repeated and then throw them with Shockwave Technique you're going to...do what a Supernal Solar does when spending...
