    replied to TVTropes on Mnemon
    I generally enjoy reading TVTropes, but I can't explain this one. I don't remember anything mentioned about Mnemon and Kinships in particular, but if anything, Third Edition made Mnemon seem like a considerably more decent person than she appeared in previous editions. She's ruthless and ambitious, but succeeding her mother isn't remotely the only thing she cares about.

    It wouldn't be crazy to think that Mnemon's relationship with Ragara made it hard for her to trust her peers, but I don't believe the books say anything of the sort.

    replied to Sorcerous Workings: Where We Make Judgments
    Thanks, I think that sounds very reasonable.



    TBH I was already thinking that simple immunity was kind of boring and also that making the effect weirder would go a long way towards reducing the "using sorcery to do Medicine" problem here. But it was getting late and I was in a hurry to get my question posted in a coherent form. >_>

    I like the idea of the subject being bonded with some kind of minor fire elemental that embodies purity. If a disease gets through the flaming defense, the disease starts burning up inside the body; the subject...

    The sorcerer attempts a working to give his subject a new (albeit subtle) special ability: immunity to a certain type of disease. Let's say it's cancer: cancer can no longer develop, grow, or spread in the subject's body at all. (This effect doesn't actually remove any existing tumors, if any -- you'd need actual medical treatment for that, I think -- but they aren't likely to be dangerous anymore.)

    Or perhaps it's another broad category of disease. Something other than the Great Contagion, anyway -- cholera, plague, whatever. (I'm assuming the Great Contagion is much harder to...

    replied to Charms of Underwhelming Might
    Threefold Magnetic Ardor costs 4 motes, and unless your Appearance is 4+ more than your target's Resolve, it's less efficient than just using your Presence Excellency.

    And if your Appearance really is that much higher than their Resolve, you probably don't need much help convincing them anyway.

    I guess TMA does have the slight advantage of working on Performance and Socialize rolls in addition to its native Presence. So it's slightly useful in the edge case where you don't even have the Excellency for one of those and you have to make a roll anyway. I really don't think...

  • If there's no limit to how far a martial art can be expanded, might there be Charms with prerequisites from multiple styles? The Lunars book does mention that there are schools syncretizing Snake and Centipede styles, just to give one example.

    (Of course, then you're back to pulling out the comparison table for weapon and armor combos. But still.)

  • The coadjutors are "perfectly attuned" to the desires of their Yozi progenitors (at least with respect to their selection of Urges), though. While the Reclamation conspirators don't think alike, they do communicate with each other and have divided the various directions of Creation between them, which should actually work pretty well to avoid screw-ups like this one.

    Cecelyne manages the South. She's certainly a hypocrite, but she's unlikely to contradict herself about something like "what do I want done with the Perfect of Paragon?" for no reason.

  • The bit about Mega-Speed apparently benefiting Defense is another thing that the book really should state clearly.

    As currently written, I would never in a million years have guessed that Mega-Speed did anything other than allow you to move from place to place faster.

    (I kinda wonder if Mega-Speed adding one's full Mega-Dexterity Scale bonus to Defense might be unbalancing. On the other side of things, Accuracy seems more costly for less benefit. But then, I guess there are a lot of ways to add Enhancement to attacks.)

  • We were doing a modern-day Exalted game in which my character, a teenage Dawn Caste, was sparring with a slightly older Solar.

    She jumped up onto a fire escape, so naturally he took hold of the fire escape, tore it off the building and smashed it into the pavement with her still on it.

    It worked a lot better than I expected.

    (The ST did not actually check my Strength+Athletics on that one, so I'm not at all sure whether my character should really have been able to do that to the poor fire escape or not, but whatever. No sense interrupting an entertaining...

  • I feel like the Mega-Attribute section could use a little more detail about what is and isn't included in each basic Mega-Attribute, in that case.

    I don't see any reason in the text to assume that Mega-Dexterity wouldn't help you shoot things, aside from the fact that there's a separate Mega-Edge for that. As written it sounds like it should apply to any Dexterity roll....
