    replied to Please, please fix the Lunar Bond
    It was more of a symptom of the attitude. Which was rather obnoxious, that if you weren't a solar you couldn't ever match for even a second....

    replied to Why bring back the Tell, again?
    At this point there are only a few times when the tell matters. You hit bonfire or above or you get hit by eye of the unconquered sun or some equivalent detection spell if you purchase one charm. The tell isn't a big deal but it does exist to counterbalance free stealth and was there in the first place due to how myths works with certain famous shapeshifters. But again one charm and pretty much the only thing that detects it is the eye of the unconquered sun..

    I suppose my question lies in well for the poison it only lasts a few actions instead of longer out of combat. Are there charms that extend duration.

    My second question comes from, what exactly is the difference between a creature that can generate lightning in it's body and a mutated electric eel....

    How long does that usually last? Like if you paralyze someone how long is it? Also, what counts as a magical animal versus a mutated one?...

    Another question, do the venomous merit poisons work outside of combat.

    If your character starts at essence 2, do you just count as having the amount of xp needed to be essence 2?

  • I agree that not all of them do that but most of them do. If they didn't the celestial bureaucracy and and the terrestrial courts would be in a much better state than they are. However, rather than fix the issues plaguing Yu Shan and creation they instead took advantage of the situation and continue to profit from it. It wasn't just the bronze allied gods who did this but also the threshold gods and the terrestrial ones who don't care about anything more than expansion.


    I guess to be topical. I see most of them as CEOs. Some of them are pretty good people and I'm sure most...

  • That is on the whole is quite different from 1e where gods in the fallen age have blatantly extorted prayer and when egregious enough made slaves of populations all for the sake of their own whims. One of more interesting things about gods is how petty and human like they really are and how easily they'll abuse them to get more power. It was also these tenets which forced the immaculate order to be a peacekeeping force which makes it much more nuanced then what people in this thread might believe....

  • In what way? I've read the books up and down from 1e on and the gods are dicks. Some of them aren't too bad but others just don't care and will do anything to improve. Unless the new writers are changing the nature of the gods, I can assume it's still the same. The thread drift though was from how the threshold just isn't controllable with the numbers the dragon blooded have, even without the lunars. Who are a formidable but also just one of many threats that keep the threshold what it is....

  • You also have to remember this was before the contagion when they were at millions of dragon blooded. The numbers were literally around 100x what the are now....

  • That isn't the only reason dragon-blooded do it and if you actually read the supporting 1e fiction and situations that 3e builds off of it you'd know that gods don't give a fuck and the strong ones are almost unassailable without exalted enforcing the peace. Gods are full on assholes. Most of them don't care about humans except as a prayer battery and have no problem sucking the resources for themselves. The immaculate philosophy is such mixed force because it's a lie but one that benefits humans from the predation of gods. It starts with a blessing for extra worship and slowly grows.

  • 1) has been an issue since the first edition, which was stated and shown in may ways. The gods are just as asholish as demons are if not worse. They get drunk with power and don't give a shit. This is why the Immaculate philosophy exists in the first place and why the sidereals worked hard to force the gods to behave on the blessed isle.

    2) Is impossible to do without celestial spirit killing charms or Immaculate MA (explicitly the pinnacle of wood dragon). A shaman can beat a spirit but without the charms of the exalted, they'll just come back. This is why exalted were created in...

  • The further you go to the edge of the threshold the less of a chance you have. Yes, the threshold means freedom. It also means predation from gods and a host of other things. Even the dragon blooded don't go too far because it does get more wild. In all the editions it's been that way, yes the realm is an imperial empire but at the same time they have wealth, safety and stability. The threshold has freedom but at the cost of safety. There are threats that mortal shaman can't even hope to handle at all. And gods and sorcerers who take advantage of people. Also, there are more than a few celestial...

  • Yes, there would be. Gods who are powerful and can bribe their way into getting away with it can form a society based on themselves and their whims. The only thing mortals can do is pray or die because the god manipulates the area so they all suffer....

  • You mean like harborhead which is much closer to the blessed isle than white wall or a bunch of other places which are screwed because strong gods take over an area? Mortals can get lucky or be incredibly screwed. You can't send someone as strong as Alhat or the syndicates against a mortal army. That's just an easy slaughter....

  • Because the farther you are from the blessed isle the more issues you run into. It's again, not just lunars that cause dragon blooded problems. There are hosts of other threats that would require direct dragon-blooded intervention. The real world doesn't have to deal with magic or spirits demanding tribute....
