  • "What fire has wrought" could also refer to the ursupation. "The fires of rebellion" is a common idiom, and a rebellion is what set the course of history that would eventually lead to the realm as we know it.

    It is a phrase that describes multiple aspects of dragoblooded existence and history and on top of that alludes to the central premise of exalted: that heroes will forge their own fate....

  • Awesome!

    I'll have a more in-depth look later and then see about reviving my 3E campaign plans

    Especially with 3E's move to more mechanically complex subsystems.

    A compromise solution would be the approach 40k used in the 4th-5th edition codex books: One paragraph of flowery fluff description followed by clearly separated rules texts. This is similar to how 2E often, but not always, approached it: by using a set formula of division with a visible break between, the rules are easy to find without eschewing evocative descriptions.

    Games Workshop were by no means masters of clear rules writing, but the two part approach worked for the most part (though it did result...

    Wouldn't playing an Akuma then be, in essence, the exploration of the consequences of the choice to sell your soul?

  • At first glance that seems more like a lunar charm than a solar one to me. I'd think that with the athletics excellency would cover most situations for a solar, as it is reflexive, with Increasing Strength Exercise being the fallback for when that's not enough.

    Besides boosting STR naturally, taking merits such as mighty thews and favouring athletics, you can also select other abilities to match your strongman style. Throwing big boulders as a combat tactic would show of his strength, as would the brawl/MA charms based around throwing enemies around.

  • The mirror charms as executed were highly impractical. Copy paste would have been preferable to needing to look up two separate books to get the full effect of one charm. But that's my only beef with the abyssal's book, really. I dig what the resonance rules tried to do, and I dig the 'dark mirror' idea behind the charms. I just wanted to be referred to one less book for all the info....

  • The news hasn't been out long yet. That and how delicate the situation might possibly be sound like good reasons to me to not speculate, but rather just wait....

  • I likewise hope that Morke and Holden are well. Ideally they'll still be writing for EX3? I really hope this was a friendly handover of the reigns.

    The new plans sound amazing, and I wish the new devs all the best!

  • To me it comes across somewhat different. It sounds more like "exalted mothers are baby factories, and this is their maximum output rate", and I absolutely see why that doesn't sit right with many people....
