    On the topic of martial arts and Sidereals, while Mastery is a Solar thing I think I recall one of you saying Sids wouls have some manner to use them. Not asking for rules summary since I doubt you're even close to there yet being neck deep in the Lunard, but as a rule of thumb how casual would you suggest making access to that as a stopgap if one uses a Sid in their home games and fills the void of their charmset with martial arts and a few homebrew updates of classic charms?

    I was inclined to just give Mastery to them straight and due to their inferior excellency to the might Solar...

    Unless Cloth of Jade is just insanely difficult and time consuming to make compared to hammering rings and metal sheets into forms....

  • I'll say that a lot of the challenges that have been noted don't make things impossible to make a fun Exalted adventure path but are complications to take into account mostly. Planning for wide scope of power and potential short circuits is doable and has been done before. A key part of a good adventure path is giving tools for less confident GMs to learn in whatever areas they feel less adept, since everyone has some strong and weak points.

  • I like the idea of adventure paths. I've run several premade campaigns in other games, and in others have looted their premade stuff for some ideas even if I don't use it directly. However, Exalted has a major problem I feel in that the awesome powers available to a PC no matter what kind of Exalt they are makes it very hard to make any assumptions about how things will go.

    I'm going to compare this to another premade campaign I'm running right now, The Darkening of Mirkwood for The One Ring. The Darkening of Mirkwood takes place of 30 years of time in play with one provided adventure...

  • That's totally fair. Ascendant Nova Phoenix being the Wing Gundam is a bit debatable but Karvara appears to have been designed from its official art to its Evocations to evoke Evangelion directly. Though the comparison you guys made with it to Nausicaa is pretty neat, especially since Eva and Nausicaa share a bit of DNA and the creator of the show worked on Nausicaa and was the animator of some of the more visually complex ending stuff...including the God Warrior.

  • I've managed to accidentally use one as an unintended local cryptid in the region my game is set in which isn't their intended use of "hammer of an angry god" as they're statted but its been fun so far


    Edit: Also as I listen through the episode during lulls in work, I guess you guys and I were watching very different anime as kids or teens when it comes to thinking about Ascendant Nova Phoenix and Karvara...
