    I don't know if this was intentional, but the repurchase effect of Steps Between Seconds and Drowning in Moments can be combined so that you can launch a decisive attack every turn without resetting to base initiative - with the caveat that you need to start combat at 15i+...

    They honestly don't feel any different from the Solar versions of those charms. They're so similar that rather than call attention to the differences between Solars and Lunars, it makes Lunars look like Silver Solars - which can only harm both splats....

    This is something I like least about his work. The idea that the primoridals are just sentient collections of charms and everything they can do has a discrete charm associated with it. Give me back 1e Games of Divinity when SWLiHN destroying part of her body in a fit of rage was a single line of evocative text meant to convey the awesome scope and power of the Yozis....

    This problem seems easily solved in 3e - just don't stat up 3rd Circle Demons or Yozis as if essence 3-5 Solars are ants compared to them. That seems to be the direction 3e is going anyway, reigning in ess 6+ so that while still strong, it isn't a whole new tier of play. So for example maybe Ligier blows up a small city, causing uncountable damage to everything in range. That seems about something he could do. He just wouldn't throw out 10 attacks per round at 30 dice each....

    I did not like his vision for Exalted and I am not a fan of his work....

    They do not have excellencies and yes it is intentional. Only exceptionally strong demons like Octavian have them, even the other second circles do not.

    Is the Dragon-Blooded excellency intended to stop charms that prey on 1s or 2s? Unlike the other exalted, they can easily re-roll up to (essence) non-successes, so they can choose to reroll that many 1s or 2s.

    I find that in-play it makes Dragon-Blooded really good at certain contested rolls like awareness vs stealth even without any charms, in a way that isn't mirrored in every ability. Like a Dragon-Blooded investigator doesn't get any extra benefit from his excellency when doing a case scene, but suddenly that same excellency is way more powerful when trying to detect a night ...

  • Page 16, there is a typo where it describes unexpected attacks as a kind of unexpected attack, where it should read 'surprise attack'

    I have heard the exact opposite argument (from other players), that Evocations are NOT charms despite sharing the same general rules format, so I'm seeking clarification. i.e they are they own category of thing, much like Sorcery is....

    Do supplemental attack Evocations count as charms for the purposes of Iron Whirlwind Attack's special activation clause, which states that any attack-enhancing charm need only be paid for once?


    For example, would you pay just once for Sleeping Devil, Wake! when using Iron Whirlwind Attack?

    I love Dragon-Blooded and they may be my favorite splat, but it would diminish my enjoyment of them if they were -too- powerful, if that makes sense. I love their themes and how they fit into the setting, and that includes being the weakest of the Exalted.

    Anyway I think What Fire Has Wrought will be great!...

    Speaking of Ex3 Antagonists, will there be more beings on the level of Ahlat or stronger?

    I have been running an Exalted game for over a year now, and I find making powerful beings both unique and challenging one of the most difficult things as an ST.
