    You make it seem like the old systen let you do anything when 2e made it take ages to make one artifact. A 3e solar in game can churn out 5*s if he minmaxes into it much easier than you ever could in the old system....

    That's true but it does make it unfeasible foe moat games with sucks. E3 would be a little more useful for sidereals....

    It'll be interesting to see how SMA works now, especially considering that Chejop's original write up said he basically mastered them all. Now, it'll obviously be weaker than it used to be but the real question is if some SMA will still have high essence values and the what the implications of those higher essence values are as well....

    That's fine but that doesn't really change what I said. Not having them more mechanically powerful than E5 doesn't mean that a man of kejak's capabilities should be at low essence given his original write up. Kejak was a man who not only spent his life working towards his goals but also trained his body and his mind and his mystical powers....

    I kind of handwaved those things in the "in that what lore they did add brought down the exalted in question." Dragon blooded also had this issue where it was 1e lore then 2e ways to undermine them....

    My point has more to his ability to be able to defend himself especially versus people who do want to kill him. His original background not only put him as one of the best politicians in creation but also one of the best fighters and his ability to defend himself against assassins would be a necessary trait to have in the vicious circle of yu-shan politics.

    Also I'll just cut to where it explicitly says it in 1e. Page 80 of sidereals.


    It also talks about how good his lore and sorcery are but I feel like this was probably the most important part. The book also calls...

    I disagree because both of them are pretty important. Especially when it comes to Yu-shan where Essence and magicalness is part of surviving in yu-shan especially it's politics....

    Perhaps but I do find it hard to believe that the preeminent sidereal has low essence for an elder his age....

    A lot of 2E was just copy pasted from 1e. I think lunar lore was written wholesale for 2e because it was unusable but I can look in both sidereals 1E and 2E and find verbatim lore and the charms weren't properly retooled for the edition. Which meant that they were really not usable as a PC without a full rewrite. Scroll of the monk just added fuel to the fire with horrendously unbalanced SMA styles. Sidereals weren't alone with this issue as dragon blooded had some verbatim lore issues and a terrible charmset. A lot of 2E was just not usable and the lazy copy paste wouldn't have been so bad if...

    Unless the lore changed raksi was born around the near end of the first age where as kejak was born near the beginning. Now, he's probably near the middle but he probably still had time to raise his essence before usurpation. Moreover, most of his work is probably delegated unless sidereals manage to acquire the best multitasking charms in the game....

    Considering he's much older than raksi he should be at least at 8. Even in the first edition i remember it being implied that he was at 8 or 9....

  • Water probably edges out at the end of the melee tree. If getting the cap charms are an issue water would be more useful. Unless you want to combine with presence.

  • How would no seeming work in this edition? It's clearly more of a flaw than a merit given how the 2e does contracts.

    If an outsider decided the caul wasn't worth it and wanted to get rid of it, outside of displeasing a lot of beings, would it have any major concequences?

    Being able to dodge by giving someone TN 8 or 9 is a much better defense than just a static defense. That's basically removing 10% of successes....
