    replied to Statting up the Scarlet Empress
    I was given to understand that Heart of the Realm and two other stones were generally kept in the Imperial Crown. That might imply it is also an artifact, perhaps with evocations related to rulership.

    Also, if anyone in Creation has access to peaches of immortality, it would be her. That is another route to immortality....

    If I may make a very minor response: Its actually extremely heroic. Achilies, in the running for being the archetypal hero, spends most of the book he is famous for sitting in his tent and sulking while his friends and comrades die because he is feeling unappreciated. He actually asks for the gods to make things worse for them to drive the point home harder.

    Not saying Sol is like that, but character flaws as big as their ability to impact the plot is an old trope....

    Speaking mostly from 2E info: The Sun has two options if he decides to get personally involved. One is going mano-a-mano against the fey hoards which is unlikely to be particularly effective since he can still only be in one place at a time. (Beating Balor's face into the ground being a useful and enjoyable exceptional). The other is to fire up the daystar and start rains of sunfire. Given how far the Fey had penetrated that would likely leave most of Creation that isn't the Blessed Isle in ashes.

    Between the two extremes, he could deploy the armies and open the stockpiles of Heaven....

    I wasn't asking why didn't he make more. I am asking that if all the Solars outside the Jade Prison had already been chosen, and someone else caught the Sun's attention, could he contest its power and pull another one out. In effect, was he unable to chose more than the handful of Solars who weren't caught, or did he not try?

    I am aware that his inner thoughts are even less likely to appear on 3E pages than excerpts from the Jade Prison's user manual. But since the point of this thread is about the morality of his actions, it is relevant to know what he could do vs what he did do...

    Speaking of the Jade Prison and whatever aspect of their patrons is involved in choosing the Exalted: How did it work exactly? Was the Jade Prison sufficiently powerful to actively resist the Sun's desire to Chose beyond the free Exaltations, did it hide them from his (presumably extremely keen) sight, did it actually stuff in the fates of exceptional mortals so only the barest few were impressive enough to catch his attention, etc.?

    replied to Artifact Workshop
    I had an idea that I didn't know how to balance: An artifact workshop ( :P )

    Something like adding qualities to things created in it or providing assistants. But most of what I was thinking of seemed like it would be better contained in Craft charms, and non-combat artifacts generally don't get much in the way of Evocations anyway?
