  • I haven't looked at them either but I'm ecstatic that people are saying there's more tough enemies to fight now. So so many of the fights in exalted are easy to the point of not being fun, so much so that we instituted a 0-1 dawns rule, and I took the dawn this campaign, gave my self 3 dex and 1 dot in brawn to start the campaign just so we'd have some good ones at the start. I'll say this again because it bears repeating every time this comes up, but I don't want a 60% chance of my players biting the dust every fight, I just want some back and forth. Really hoping with these reactions that these...

    Oh cool, I bet that was a factor in making DB charms a bit more self contained than the solar ones, which I recall being mentioned somewhere....

    I think this is fine. I sort of want DBs to be heroic mortals with artifacts who's charms give them just that little edge, or cool effect to push them that much further ahead....

    Fire aspect: "Man these guys are tough! It's Aura time!"

    Brotherhood: "Right!"

    *three minutes later*

    Wood Aspect: "Whoa, looks like our 'little' problem just got a whole lot bigger!"

    Fire Aspect: "Right! We need warstriders, now!"

    I really like how it's kind of bending but not as restrictive but still has the "you don't want to fight a fire aspect in the middle of a raging forest fire" thing going on.

    Hey Vance end I've got two quick ones. Firstly is the only way to activate crane style reflexively to have an enemy at the same initiative as you fail a decisive against you? It seems very difficult compared to some of the others but also Crane style doesn't suffer as much from using its first action to activate the form.

    Also when a crane form counterattack happens does it resolve before your enemy's damage or after?

    I want to see some love for Ill Lilly, personally.

    We also never remember to do ammunition checks or keep stock of ammunition. I've never personally played an archer though.

    Edit: but I would like to!

    I've often wondered about the actual implications of this. Like what happens when a monk says "For SHAME Tepet Fakru!" And they shrug it off. Apart from letting the lower classes reply "yeah you get him!" And feel better....

    Actually the IO was the mail service of the first age before it got retrofitted into a religion. They're technically mailmen before all else.

    Yes in theory the IO enforces a kind of Noblese Oblige, but in reality I seem to remember most of their presentations being to browbeat peasants into submission and politely look away when a Dynast isn't holding up their end of the bargain....

    The IO is mostly shitty, but with some good parts. Broadly speaking:

    Cons:
    Built on a foundation of outright lies.

    All the top members are either sidereals or mind-warped sidereal puppets who use the IO as thought control

    Engineered to stop people from ever striving to improve themselves beyond getting better at their current job

    Excuses the DBS for their excesses and prevents people from questioning them

    I'm not sure if it is past presentation or flandarization that's made me feel like they're largely impotent at defending...

    Shooting an arrow out of the air with another arrow, I'm not sure that's in the charmset.

    Yeah I actually also think most of the low essence DB charms are more powerful than I would expect....

    So this is all pretty fantastic!

    Firstly I'll agree with wizard, it's great to see more DB charms being straight up supernatural stuff, which good because I've always been a bit suspicious of the line "you'll know a DB charm because it's not a Solar charm" which is incredibly vague and often very poorly explained. Even if the effect is very similar, the theme and subtle mechanical differences help.

    Also guys, remember that essence 1 DB charms are as weak as exalted charms ever get. They're supposed to be kind of underwhelming, just giving you a little boost...
