    replied to What is "Embattled", really?
    ....Isn't this entire discussion about how disengage repersents an attempt to get space, not just movement? The example above is about how if the solar wants to contest an opponent, and is able too, disengage works to reflect that (since Disengage is "I'm moving despite a person actively opposing my movement")...

  • Drowning a Solar is amazingly, and I mean amazingly, easy if you can pull off the grapple(which has been tricky for my games, but hey.) Also, gang up on them. Seperate your targets, and pick them off one by one. Onslaught penalities are amazing. In a similair vein bring battle group support. BAttle groups with that veteran commander or the Earth immaculate are _nasty_. If your using the Immaculates from the core, check how their charms interact with each other. Someone explained it once, but they have surprising synergy.
    Consider crumplepunches homebrew as well, it's pretty good if you...

    Sounds like a great reason not to have it then
    more seriously, No-Moons are presumably not all sorcerers, in the same way Twilights aren't all sorcerers. Their anima powers probably will be useful for sorcery, but I don't think any splat will directly effect sorcery as part of a passive-no-cost-power....

    replied to What is the Realm were more like Lookshy?
    Religon is a tricky question. How much imperial power depends on the existence of a strict, militant state religion can be debated. I am unfamilar with the exact differences between the two faiths, could someone elighten me? I believe the Realm (that's the Immaculate Order, right?) is more centralized then the Philosphy? And what book should be examined for Lookshy's structure, as it is, to compare to the Realms?

    I'm naturally suspicous because Lookshy I've heard describe as Spartan or generally a millitray state. Such states don't do well at empire without becoming the realm. (Case...

    THATS WHAT FASICN--in door voice, lower excitement. Ahem.
    Thats what fascinates me most about him though. He's a lunar in a different landscape, who doesn't feel not lunar(to me). Notable to me is the 3 times reported dead. That reads like a trickster/cunning/folk hero general/warleader more than a glorious conquering one.
    I find splats more fasicnating when they can flex into roles not apparently obvious to them, and Sha is doing just that! The caul is almost a lunar run, functional kingdom from my reading! It's a nice takeaway for someone who wants to see Lunar emperors, pharaohs,...

    His Divine Lunar presence fasinates me because the Caul is...kinda a runaway success the way a lot of places aren't for lunars it seems....

    I've never gotten solar hate. I mean, the motivation of a solar is the motivation of any fgiven person? It requires a bit more work, because they lack the built in culture of
    Dragonblooded but still.
    I also hope lookshy is no longer the heroic dragonblooded setting because if memory serves, their quite fucked up. Like don't they train other armies in order to better prepare to inevitably invade them? Aside from that, heroic dragonblooded should have alternatives to look at besides the grand and terrible realm and the "noble" but flawed lookshy.

    replied to Great news for Lunar fans!
    Oddly never had the solar problem. Mainly cuz I referred to it as "hero" instead of king, made clear that their past lives weren't always great, and then focused on their personal heroics. And heavily downplayed any notion of rightful ruler as opposed to lost power(except the actual queen who exalted.)
    Also of their past lives only half had nations...

    Can non exalts develop their own charms? It seems that a unique part of the Exalted, as opposed to most spirits and other supernatural, is the control they have over their own power sets.

    Doing this from mobile might edit later.

    1) a lot smaller. I wouldn't have a realm-loolshy have as many mortals as the current realm does instead of increasing the dragon blooded.
    2) likely to be the realm in a week. I doubt a highly militant society like lookshy wouldn't expand given the chance. Eventually it would scale rapidly to empire.
    3) still not able to maintain as much infrastructure, bc I wouldn't scale Dragonblooded up. Even if I did, the lack of solar workings/sorcery would make it much harder to maintain then solves would be able to.
    4) if we up dragonblooded...

    I mean, I meant for making my own versions of exalted that are far, far away. If I have a player that wants to play an Infernal/Nocturnal/Whatever, the Exigent book would still be helpful. A guide line like that, that helps me understanding mechanics, deisgn philosphy, scaling, etc would make my life infintely easier, because my alternative is working from scratch. Charm guidlines are going to be useful for either, especially since we've been told some exigents do run all the way up to Solar levels in their area.

    I'm colored also by having only had 2 players intreasted in lunars,...

    I honestly would rather Exigents first. I need this homebrew juice. Like, Lunars are cool, but pushing back the exigents seems...off to me. It's like, here's the thing that lets a determined homebrew make any exalted they need in playable form. I was kinda annoyed that Exigents were behind Dragonblooded, because I could homebrew dragonblooded easier with exigents.. Same with Lunars, Infernals, Siderals, or even weird one off stuff. Exigents, as a book, just seem infintely more valuable.

    Is Golden Janissary compatible with shields? IIRC it's compatible with spears and staves.

  • If there was space for both, both would be good. I like having quick access to lots of spirits, the better to work cults or alter spirits to fit other cult designs. If it was, say, 128 pages (I think that's Arms length?) then around 60~ cults with 1 page description and 1 page of unique stats might be intreasting (either the cult leader, its god, items, enforcers, merits, what have you).
    However, it seems we'll be getting bestiary-esque entries in the monthly entries (We've gotten 1 behemoth, 2 sort of ghosts, a primodial-era god king giant thing, all of which see viable for cults).

  • More monastic societies/dedicational cults ala brides of Ahlat. More strange rules of gods, more taboos that are odd. More forbidden god cults, because I love those things.

    Do people need to survive the sections of my sorcerous workings for them to work?
    Like, if I wanted to cut a person into sections, hammer and forge each section like iron, and then reassemble them into an iron-skinned armored warrior, is that within possibility or did I just kill a man and make my forge really messy? Or Make a liminal?
