    No need! Adding a new source of supernatural weirdness is always good, and your right, Dragonblooded aren't mooks. I just often think of Sorcerous workings as the last resort, which might be just a me thing....

    Honestly, if your looking to convert Space Marines to Exalted...it has those? Dragonblooded in Power Armor, or enhancements via Tiger Warrior charms? Oh! The Yennin kinda. So yeah. Sounds good and possible and fitting of setting.

    TheCountAlucard I mean, I just assume all Blood Apes will have the same charms and can't expand them--Elementals can grow into dragons, gods can gain higher station, but like. Every Garda bird is the same set of charms as the other. I concede that I was misunderstanding perhaps....

    Solar 3--sounds like a 3rd circle demon (the Ebon Shadow has one that does that)
    And if it makes you feel better, I have assumed that spirit charms are basically static and developing your own charms being a unique thing to Exalted as well (in addition to Excellencies)....

    I'd say so, yeah. Celestial 3 at most. I'd specify, it's altering your devil maw, not the spell itself....

    I read like far less narrowly.

    For a university that gives bonus die to teaching, a Celestial 3 seems fine. For permanently/automatically giving every student who attends bonus dots, I don't know. Seems between solar and celestial....

    Come on, how is "A Good School" too hard? The charms, yeah, but school that supplement the abillity for its teachers to teach is certainly within range of workings. The fluff needs work, but some of the mechancis are viable (bonus die, instilling an intimacy with the lessons, etc.)




    Celestial something or other. Id say 3, since it sounds more magical than resilence, but might be on the scale of human intellect. Depends on the fluff or effect....

    Hey my man, maybe check how it's describe in official press and the core:Lunars: Fangs at the Gate lays out the Silver Pact, the mutual aid society that protects young Lunars from the Wyld Hunt and which organizes the centuries-long war against the Realm

    Core:
    So too did the bond’s destruction. The Old Realm fell; the Solars were murdered, their spirits banished beyond Lunar ken. The Lunars changed. They’re still changing. A deep rage lives in their Essence, and a deep wound. Their sleep is tormented by visions of loss, of murder, of the past. The Lunars are compelled to shatter...

    Talking about the term in this cf's title. Go check with other people for why it's bad.
    Your also ignoring that, you know, the Exalt might be coming to your home town...from your hometown.



    "because of exalts" yeah, I'd find it weird if Cearr was enraged at all solars, as opposed to just the bull.


    HmmmI'll concede that. Romans had a colonial empire, and their notion of 'barbarian vs roman' was less developed. But no usually there's an understnading of race when you build a colonial empire. Certainly in the cases your citing (Esp. in...

    replied to Steel and Iron: What's the difference
    A point of confusion might be that the Iron Age is when steel was masproduced, not iron.(again going off the wiki)
    In fairy tales, iron's cause of hurt isn't clear and is often ...well, dodgy.
    Metoric Iron might be a good examination, given some tibetan traditions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thokcha


    Hmmmm, but that asks why don't magic metals do aggravated damage? Alright, lets leave some symbolism aside. Iron might work because its unaltered metal from the core of the omphalos. Why iron instead of copper tho? Or tin? Hm. Perhaps different metals have alignments

    replied to Steel and Iron: What's the difference
    so as penance for giving basically a bullshit answr, it might be irons association with the element of Earth and the Center (The Blessed Isle has huge amounts of iron, and such). I think another option might be (tying to the symbolism angle) is that early "better" weapons were of iron instead of bronze? But no, that doesnt make much sense either. I think the fruitful course here is to examine the meaning of iron in Creations history over the use of steel. It might be that with the advent of iron, a much more availble material and used in the cosmic omphalos, Creation was able to create...

    ...I'm sorry, are you deliberately ignoring who is offended by the term? Let me be clearer then: The phrase is inaccurate as there is no actual real world comparison. It is simeltaneously offensive to real human beings.


    A man is not an institution.
    A Solar that exalts among his people and becomes king, even a tyrant, is a fundamentally different problm than an external force imposing itself. Solars aren't a unified caste who oppress humanity on a systemtic level. Again, we have an oppresive class of imperial rulers. The Realm. If we want to talk about awful exalts, we...

    replied to Steel and Iron: What's the difference
    ...I mean...those are executionrs tools though...I agree, its probably unfair to say steel is "more" death than iron (Maybe more forged? More artifice compared to meteoric ore?) but those examples are in fact death related.
    A better counter point might be blacksmithing in West Africa. There, blacksmiths were associted with leadership and sacred positions a well.

    I think the reason iron hurts fae is that a) the Fae are Eurofae, who were kept at bay by iron in the past (Note: wikipedia at least suggests that originally cold iron meant any bladed iron, including steel)...

    replied to Tell me about Half-Caste characters
    Your basic understanding and justification rests on the notion that :
    Exalted Children will use parent charms (Devs have indicated they wont.)
    Dragon Touched will be a thing(...they really shouldnt be as that makes no sense to begin with).
    That we can meaningfully compare the Exalted host to a colonial empire (we can't). The phrase is inaccurate in addition to offensive: What natives are the Solars oppressing? What colonial empire exists of the lunars? If anything, Moon Born seem to be champions in Lunar domains opposing colonial powers. We do have a parallel for colonial imperialism....

    Not all dragon blooded are Immaculates (The Forest Witches)
    Not all dragonblooded are members of the realm (Lookshy, Outcaste grous).
    Not all dragonbloode are related to the Empress. (Lookshy)
    Not all dragonblooded speak the same language (Why would those outside the realm speak realm? Or any of its varients?)
    Not all dragonblooded are part of the Realm. This seems to be the big point of confusion here. Lookshy does not consider itself a part of the Realm, and is culturally distinct. Parsaad, a part of the realm, is culturally (the term I take you to mean by ethnically)...
