    replied to Can a circle of dynasts "win?"
    Yes that's very true, but you're not doing it the way that a Solar would do it. A Solar in a similar situation would experience a vastly quicker meteoric rise because there's no such thing as an empire of Solars above them that they need to contend with, and once they're at the top they can snag an audience with the rulers of whatever nation they're in and say "Hey guys, I know you're mad but...Solar empire?"*. Which is possible as DBs in the Realm, but you're probably getting the social version of the Death Star exhaust port to get there. There is some reason that the ST introduced...

    I'd say you could make a plausible story out of it, but you'd need to have a Hearth of like, multiple heads of houses, or maybe one super powerful house or something I think. It's not plausible if you end it still at war with the Lunars AND the Solars though, you'd need some kind of setup where the Solars agree not to be in charge, but to still work with you. That'd be a hard sell, and you'd never convince a lot of them if they really didn't want it. It's not beyond the scope of reason that the majority of celestial exalted could be convinced that they screwed up the last time they were in charge,...

    replied to Steel and Iron: What's the difference
    Erm so I wrote kind of a lot about why physics in Creation looks like physics in our world, but clearly isn't. Just skip the spoiler tags if you don't want to read it.

    There's a couple of things here that I'm going to break down, and the first is that physics in Creation, when you get down to it, are nothing like the physics of the real world. Upon a cursory look everything seems normal, which is good, we don't want to play in a fantasy universe where things are completely ridiculous strange and we constantly have to remember things like 25.6 hour days and stuff. Or maybe you do want

    Yeah, I’m not even sure creations iron/steel is the same as ours. Our carbon steel is stronger because carbon atoms introduce themselves into the iron crystal matrix and provide barriers against slip within the matrix. I’m 99% sure that’s not the case in Exalted. There’s no microstructure analysis there.

    What you have instead is somebody working fire essence into the iron through coke ovens and just plain fire. It makes the metal more workable, sharper and biting like a flame, but if you can make it in one single casting and work it cold, or whatever, it retains much more...

    Also the return of the Solars just put a huuuge pressure on the already cracking structure of the Realm. That's got to offer a huge opportunity. Even if they don't do a thing to work with them directly, suddenly even the most zealous and apolitical warriors of the Realm will be drawn away from the Lunar domains....

    Double down on it and go full Dragonheart. Team up a former immaculate and a Solar. The solar waltzes in, flares up his anima, the town hires the DB desperate to deal with the problem and then has a mock fight where they “kill” the deadly anathema and save the day, and then move on somewhere else to do it all over again.

    The trick would be disguising the Solar as a new and different sun demon....

    That would be such an awesome idea for a campaign. You keep running into strange things that people report are anathema, or at least go to a spot and find absolutely no basis for the claim, but there’s still a spot of trouble that you can clear up, and very very seldom, maybe even only once, this absurdly non-credible claim turnes out to be totally true.

    Like maybe some guy who simple calls himself “the anathema” has been spotted roaming around with a good-foil circle glued to his forehead. He’s got a little group of 2-3 disciples who shine mirrors at him to make him glow...

  • I agree, and in 99% of cases you're right, but I might require a really big stunt, or apply a penalty, to do bashing with a shuriken or a rapier maybe. Either way if you're a Solar you likely have the dice to destroy a defense even with a penalty....

  • Hey cool idea, once midterms are done you might be able to expect something from me.

  • Not to mention there’s a good chunk of DB charms that actually add excellencies ad hoc. In fact those kind of charms kind of encourage you to have more flavourful excellencies rather than broad ones, because you can pick up ones that you need if and when you need them, and treat your character sheet specialties as benefits that you get when operating in your field of expertise.
