    True. It all depends of how one defines the First Age's writing, be it fonetic, silabary, ideographic or whatever to be in one's table....

    replied to Native American Vampires
    - As mentioned by LostLight, Shadows Over Mexico has a bunch of nice bits of fluff here and there for one to mine, tweak and adapt. It also references another version of the Cihuateteo, before the Wicked Dead one, if memory tricks me not.

    - Beside the Cihuateteo, Wicked Dead also has another figure from native american myth, the Baykosh, that might be more phantasmagoric than vampiric - but then could not the same be said of the Strix in the same book?

    - Ancient Mysteries and Ancient Bloodlines had the Sta-Au, that while portrayed as a strange Nosferatu-Mekhet in the...

    replied to Question about the "Five Suns Battle"
    Thanks for clearing it up, must admit some of that thinking of minne was heavily slanted by 2e lore (Righteous Devil, Devil-Tigers & some other stuff i can't quite remember rright now, i would guess).



    Good to know - would you remember which Ink Monkeys article mentions that?...

    Is that on Ink Monkeys or in Arms of the Chosen? Would like to read that and the stuff Isator mentioned too if one can reference that.

    Random aside, maybe it's just my head playing tricks on me, but i'm under a bit of the impression that "devil" in the context of Exalted, tends to be used to imply "person that makes itself as a humanmade demon", while stars, rightly or wrongly, makes me think of sidereals, gone rogue or transcending into something different. Does that make sense to you people?...

    replied to Mask of winters (PEACH)
    Well, it may sound silly, but i always liberally interpreted that kind of statement as "All Solar Charms in the 1e corebook the NPC has the skill requisites for", what in itself diminished considerably the charm glut and could lead to some peculiar things - like 1e Filial Wisdom being an awful general as 1e "war charms" were in Presence (that he sucked at), but an awesome manipulator/brainwasher (very high Socialize), what along with the cannibalism made me imagine him as a superpowered Hannibal Lecter/Colonel Kurtz in my old games, among other things.

    Humongously...

    replied to Question about the "Five Suns Battle"
    Must admit i also went with a "battle alternate suns" instead of battle solars take of the title, but then i'm kind of a nut for this legend and mixing bits of it in the setting's lore in every edition of the game. Also, far from the only mythology to touch on the idea of multiple suns....

    Actually, when 5 are undone in a sword dance, the flesh-cocoon made from their remains will spawn 10 smallish demons that must devour other beings to eventually reach full mass and size. But except for this "you are what you eat" issue, yes, they might be considered full-grown....

    replied to Rethinking Marriage in the Realm
    Can't deny, moment a DB character of mine learned of peaches of immortality he made a bunch of convoluted deals to get one that he gave to Ragara, exactly because it would throw all the Realm Civil War's build up around its ear. What Ragara actually saw through and so decided not to resume house leadership, turn into a monk, go in spiritual pilgrimage and to wait it out while everybody else wore themselves out and maybe then come as a compromise sucessor. Because our ST was a cagey bastard. ...

    replied to alright, who bleached the drendali?
    No prob at all with them being pale honestly, but as an aside keeping Dar'tan dark-skinned and connecting it to his being Scarn's ultimate penumbral lord was a fun touch.

    Noticing the shorties are making music with the helmets of dead enemies and have a custom of EATING PEOPLE gives things a quite different spin, no?

    And now i'm thinking of some kind of cuddly-looking drop bear-esque demon race related to Szoreny or Metagaos....

    And i ask myself how much of a monkeywrench does things like access to Neomah baby-crafting or gender-chaging hearthstones throw into such "declaration of childlessness intent" and associated stigma and issues.



    Not to mention Myrrhun, who was already an adult Versino graduate out and about when Mnemon was still a student in her mid-teens - or Ragara himself, that though retired from House leadership is about six centuries old and still very much alive.



    A quite potentially convoluted and interesting subject, when one considers that...
