    replied to Lunars and the Eclipse Keyword
    My head is still at work, but I really like that idea, particularly with the idea that you can gain access via munching on said type of spirit. In fact, I would respectfully posit that is the Lunar equivalent to the spirit/ghost killing charms of the Solars. Solars defeat these spirits, lunars turn their foes own powers against them by devouring them and accessing the abilities of their foes?

    I dunno. I think it is an interesting idea.

    Deluxe Quality

    I opened the plastic to look at the book. My book is undamaged and put together properly.

    I just have to say, OMFG, is it pretty on the inside. I thought it was gorgeous on the outside. Games as art? This is a return to book-making as an art.

    I am in different financial situation than I was four years ago, I mean then we were DINKs (Dual Income, No Kids) and now I am the dad of 2 small boys, but if this is the only deluxe edition I ever buy, I will just say this thing is simply gorgeous. The PDF did not do it justice.

    Just thought I would note how utterly...

    Actually playing. Need advice

    So, while it will just be two, maybe three of us, I get to actually play. I am more excited than I probably should be. I will be making two characters; a Dawn and an eclipse. I will only play one, but they represent the two things I enjoy most; talking to people and the occasional scrap.

    The Eclipse is still a little nebulous, I envision him as Herself, personally, so I will refine him.

    The Dawn, well I am torn on. I normally like to play a grand daiklaive wielder. I am not, this time. It is a new edition, I want to do something new.

    I am considering a daiklaive...

    replied to Decisive Strikes and Hardness
    This.

    Hardness comes into play only at Decisive attacks. It is exactly as important as a decisive attack.

    Hardness passively informs combat. If you are fighting a lightly armoured foe, you may be able to dispatch them more rapidly due to a lack of hardness. If you are high hardness, you can wait longer before moving to a Gambit if you are losing initiative and the fight. Hardness, via armour, helps balance out martial arts styles, adding to the meta give and take inherant in combat arms and styles. It is not the only thing to include in your personal calculus, but is...

    Would it be better to steam it? With like a travel bag steamer? Maybe air fluff in a dryer?

    I think it would look sharp framed.

    I got some timely assistance, and it is split. I also let drive thru know, so rather than some barely computer literate battered old cop looking for help on a forum, maybe we could get handled officially.

    Thank you everyone. I look into a new PDF reader, regardless. That is too bad, I liked Xodo.

  • Yes. I like the idea of limiting intensity, or maybe it can only trap someone in the underworld that is has done a point of damage to? Then tie the attack to a keyword. At that point, your opponent has had two chances to defend, resolve the effect. I can get behind that as a powerful ability that fall into the Artifact 5 space in my head.

    I should put a caveat in just about everything I post about how I am viewing it as the character being struck by something. I can handle almost anything happening to my character so long as I had a chance, that might be the wrong way to view Artifacts....

    That is cool for you, but it isn't for me.

    I just sat through 15 minutes of preparing item for printing, and it let me handle 22 pages. That is all. I am not saying it did not work for you, or does not work period. Maybe it is my printer driver. I do not know what it is, but it limits mine at 22 pages, and no more.

    Chrome is up to date, ditto the Chrome PDF reader. Must be the HP Printer driver or something, as 22 and kaput. Three times in a row now. So, there is something in my set up prohibiting it, and I am not an IT guy. I drive fast and play with guns for a l...

  • Your very own, personal way to go to and from the underworld, or trap people there does not feel like Artifact 5 to me, feels like it goes into the more nebulous N/A. That is my feeling, anyways. That was before we added the evocation getting into the upper tiers of necromancy (presumably) with the summoning. Immune to Neverborn tantrums?

    Nerf it down a bit, I would say, eyeballing it. Stormcaller has to deal with defenses and damage, and other variables, making its powers subject to the trials and tribulations of Exalted combat. As Keyword defenses are a little more difficult to...

  • I mean this constructively. I am not meaning to be mean.

    In short, my initial opinion is: you had a better idea posted that I think was the precursor to this idea. You should go back to that. The demoness sword idea had flavor, and potential, and drama. What if you fall in love with the demon in the sword? What if you redeem her into something not a demon (A daeva, if that is still the term?). You were onto something there, and this feels thin compared to that idea.

    I cannot see anyone wanting, or keeping this who was not a blue falcon. And that might be fine as an...

    I am having no luck on my own. What proof would you like that I am not a pirate? The file is huge, I doubt Email will work.

    Be that as it may, It will not work for me. It 'prepares document for printing' then will only allow up to 22 pages at a time.

    Maybe I have a newer version of application or something.

    So, nope. It does not work.

    The splitting it with Chrome does not quite work. It only allows 3 pages to convert over.

  • I like them both.

    I always liked that it was a pictographic language, as it seemed more reasonable to my 21st century mind that pictograms would be more easily lost.

    I also liked that they were meso-American in original and feel.

    I do like the newer ones just a bit more, probably because they look cleaner to me. Also, the changes that Rich made seem to follow a particular aesthetic​, which gives a faint nod to the radicals of modern Chinese.

    replied to Killing a Deathlord
    You have a point. I would say it mitigates what I, say, but the fact remains that the Exalts already killed everything involved in the Deathlords.

    They are broken, prideful, spoiled children whose ego demands they remain even if the price for remaining is that all of everything be dragged into forgotten nothingness.

    They are cowards.

    I do hear what you are saying. A low essence charm being their kryptonite feels unepic. Well, be that as it may, killing spiritual beings is what Exalts do. A sniper is going to snipe.

    Make it an epic fight scene....

  • Umm, well if Moonsilver is about change, maybe it can allow you to change your point of view, to see things from the other side.

    Maybe it can help you to pursue another who looks at it to change their point of view, and look at things your way. Maybe it can even help change a mind.

    I like duality in my Lunars. Man/beast. Sun/moon. Direct/subtle. As befitting the companion, spouse, friend, whatever of Solar I always saw them as exercising hard power for their solar and using soft power on them.

    My wife's words carry great influence on me, my moods, my thoughts,...

    I am stuck on a mobile for now. I imagine they will help, and I appreciate it.

    I will let you know after I take a whack at it later.

    Thank you!

    replied to Killing a Deathlord
    Uhm, I seem to be out of step in my opinions within the community, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

    The Exalted kill and eat gods. They murdered legions of demons, killed Titanic beings that were so important that they broke the mechanisms of death itself as they passed. But they cannot kill the prideful, fearful shades of their peers without a MacGuffin?

    This is a hold over from the days of first edition when Abyssals and Deathlords twirled their mustaches and Creation was going to die no matter what in the grimdark death of all things. It was all very tragic....

    I know. I feel bad asking about it, but being able to put it on my tablet just would make it easier all around. I can get about 360 pages in, and then my reader dies.

    Drive thru is a good company, and I do not mind giving them money normally, but maybe I feel too entitled on this one product. I would hate to tear up my beautiful deluxe edition in my bag.

    replied to Lunar Knacks
    I absolutely think that knacks should exist in some form. I will try to explain why.

    1. As others have said, it avoids there being a shape shifting attribute. I mean, stamina or strength makes sense to unlock larger forms, sure. Smaller though? Not having a separate system will cut down on diversity of builds.

    2. Offset the evocation issue. Lunar lose access to evocations, allegedly? In some form or another. A separate system gives them other investment paths. It also lets lunar players have greater control over what sort of Lunar they are.

    3. Here is where...
