  • 1) Not to toot my own horn, but this is one of the major reasons I play mortals. I don't need multiple books

    2) Exalted has always been that weird combo of "you need to homebrew some stuff" and also "and we aren't going to help you very much". There isn't much I can say about it without coming off as kinda-dismissive, so, uh "get cracking" I guess?

    3) The development-timeline of 3E has been a clusterfuck rolled up in a shitshow. I suggest you look it up.

    4) its not impossible to bring stuff over from 2E into 3E.

    "Fine. I'll humour you on this one."

    Oh, thank you, your Grace /s Way to ensure I never read anything else of yours again.

    Are you mixing 2E and 3E together into nonsense again, Accelerator?

    "bane weapon"

    Isnt in the Blood Ape section of the 3E book. In fact, a search of "bane weapon" of the entire 3E book brings up nothing of the sort. If you have something that says otherwise, post it please

    "Blood apes do aggravated damage to mortals"

    Again, not in the 3E book. If you have something...

    "Don't be absurd."

    Rich

    "Ignoring your view of warfare as some kind of rts game"

    Explain, in detail, where I implied any such nonsense. Do modern armies not make use of combined arms, small-unit tactics, or in-depth strategic planning, now?

    "He made demons allergic to Iron"

    So Exalteds Raksha having the same exact weakness is just..... okay, in your book? Hmm.

    " He made them have fire blood... So they die if they get a paper cut"

    IIRC, only the flying ones have that,...

    Where is the Twilight getting these "giant shotguns"? Or body armor?

    Besides, body armor means fuck-all against a SAW. Or a medium machine gun. Or an autocannon. Or a tank cannon. Or artillery.

    And Salvation War isn't any less ridiculous than half the ideas I see posted on this forum....

    Blood Apes have to materialize in order to attack, no?

    Modern armies have squads made up of multiple soldiers, each with their own rapid-fire weapons. Even if only one member of the squad notices the apes materializing, they have 30 bullets, which are much more dangerous than spears and arrows, to shoot into the Blood Ape. Oh, and the soldiers can do this from any range, while the Blood Ape has only 1 ranged attack.

    My mortal players have killed Blood Apes in close-combat before, with the aforementioned spears, swords and arrows. It wasn't easy, but it was possible. Modern...

    Not even bringing up the idea(s) that:
    1. Being "good" or "bad" at chess doesn't necessarily mean you are intelligent, or unintelligent
    2. Being "good" or "bad" at chess doesn't mean you can't be "good" at your actual job (aka, "generaling")
    3. "wits" has no actual correlation between other skills. One can be "witty" (not even touching the question of "what is 'wits'?"), and be unable to lead their way out of a wet paper bag.

    ......No? No it is not? As history can tell you, great and glorious generals..... sometimes lose.

    Besides....."Beat".... at what? Tactics? That isn't the generals job, that is the responsibility of all of their underlings, down to the squad-level NCOs. Strategy? That is the culmination of the generals dozens of support-staff, from staff specialized in planning to those specialized in logistics. Logistics? Again, part of his job, but not really.

    You are so severely misconstruing how.... well, "reality" works it isn't even applicable to your question....

    Are you kidding? That entire concept is fucking horrifying.

    You can play as a Demigod in Exalted because there are no real people in Creation. It is literally "make-believe". When your Exalt goes into Limit Break and fuckmurders a city in their rage, you shrug because the thousands of "people" that just got "murdered"aren't real.

    Debating someone so charismatic as to effectively have mind control would not be awesome. Trying to stop a demigod as they rage their way through the subway wouldn't be cool. Not being able to trust if your friends...
