  • The forum ate this post twice, so I will be less organized than I had planned to be.

    Stalkers are pack animals, so the basic social unit is probably the pack. The recently civilized still have strong animal passions. Essence and age bring both the cooling of those passions and access to higher steps on the paths. They are also effectively immortal and are reborn at random, so there probably isn't an aristocratic class.

    The general social pattern probably consists of a pack, perhaps the cultural basis for the Exalted Circle, that might but need not necessarily be related....

  • Lands of Creation, starting on page 118. There is an illustration of the event on 119.

  • Speaking of stars, if the north star is important, that implies the axis of the celestial sphere is not centered on the axis of Meru. Given that Creation is flat, that means there is a part of the celestial sphere that no one has ever seen.

    Also, the stars may wander if they aren't of use in navigation because fixed constellations + time of year would definitely be helpful.

  • The Dragon Kings used crystal weapons to create a new continent in the West by shooting essence lasers at the seafloor to cause massive volcanic eruptions. Doing so released the Kukla, and it eventually sank giving rise to what is now Coral, Skullstone, and the Neck but still....

    They can craft artifacts and manses like everyone else. Low-level artifacts are easier for them than anyone else. I believe that mechanically they can't make 5 dot and up. So their big projects would be amalgamations of smaller systems. Through iterative use of their crafting paths they could create quite...

  • If I remember correctly, they lack native summoning, warding and exorcism, animal husbandry, astrology, and weather working. Basically, the categories of 1E thaumaturgy.

    I think the animistic nature of Exalted might lead to a much different religious element. Dealing with gods is not a matter of faith or spiritual edification, its politics.

    There are probably philosophical schools that advise ways to transcend the material condition in this life or the next. The Immaculate Doctrine is an obvious one. Ahlat has an alternative, becoming a tassel in his cloak. Various other gods or non-divine schools probably have their own stance.

    In general though, none of them are really are portrayed as particularly big.

    I suppose with enough sorcerers they could stormwind rider ferry troops vast distances as a replacement for the air transports.

    An idea I had after reading this thread:

    An artificial lake, formed from the flesh and bone of Malfeas, entirely surrounded by sharp hills carved into amphitheaters, choir stands, concert halls, and stages for dancing. Demons continuously pound out harsh tattoos and play harsh notes on lead flutes. They dance pleasing dances and sing the Yozi's hymns. Rivers of wine and honey made with opium flow down great sluices into the lake, and the air is choking with the warring scents of incense and perfume.

    It may be that the lake is still as glass and filled with visions of...

    It's less about free will and more about outcomes.

    Exalted over the years has made a great deal of the notion that Fate is a scam. If it is destined that you will fail to accomplish your goal you are free to spit in the eye of heaven and accomplish it anyway.

    If Sacheverell wakes up and makes a statement that you will fail, then you will fail. You as the player are the one losing freedom....

    I may be misremembering, but isn't there an illustration somewhere of him? Something like a giant thing with one eye that towers over the city around it and hooks and chains keeping the eye shut.

    Actually, they need to be approved, so it takes a while for them to show up after a new page drops....

    In the 3E paradigm, they might have just assumed that the Sun stopped Exalting people for whatever reason.

    replied to [2E] Gaia or Autochthon Charms?
    I think most of Autochthon's Weaving would be like the Sun's ability to call his own chariot without needing sorcery or Ligier not needing sorcery to throw out Total Annihilation.

    For example, he doesn't weave the Retribution of Mog, he just tells Mog to go mess someone up.
