    Some people like statements that don't appear to have any substance to them beyond "I can argue about this on the internet"....

  • Did Dragonball Z jump the shark for you and if so when?

    Why did Zaibach trust Dilandau with anything?

    I can get behind that. A story with a theme of proving your worth implies that it's going to be questioned otherwise it's not much of a story....

    Could you elaborate on this?
    Worth is such a subjective thing that I don't see how Dragon-Blooded trying to prove themselves worthy automatically confers that judgement onto their mortal relatives, at least no more than any exalt has greatly increased capacity to attract people who'll fawn over them and assume they know the first thing about what they're doing....

  • I'm also confused by the Sucker Punch comparison.

    Sucker Punch wasn't a movie that its critics over-analysed and sucked all the fun out of it, for me it was a bait and switch that promised cool action scenes but were ultimately were products of the heroine's imagination in her doomed attempt to escape an insane asylum. I think most people would've preferred a movie of Babydoll and friends battling their way into Mordor or whatever without interludes of them being asylum in mates or helpless sex slaves that they could switch their brains off and enjoy.

    It was the attempt...

    I'm not forgetting it but the people in the villages aren't Icewalkers and the Animal Masters with a policy of exiling Dragon-Blooded from their tribes aren't highly successful expansionist warlords that my PC might feel a sense of comradery to....

    Yes, it's important to remember that he's not just a narrative figure but someone the PCs are going to interact with and someone wanting to turn the tables on the Dragon-Blooded and make them the hunted ones isn't just a failure to turn the other cheek and be a bigger person but the nature of Terrestrial Exaltation gives it this added element of ethnic cleansing.


    It might not be much better. The way the villagers are approaching this problem suggests they are much more scared of what the Bull of the North might do if his patrols find a Dragon-Blooded than they are concerned...

    I'm getting an interesting Winter Soldier/Phantom Pain vibe to this. I'm curious why it's a special kind of Exaltation rather than the Exigence....

    I think part of this problem is the notion that every map dot has its own Dragon-Blooded unless its culture is actively pushing them out.

    Terrestrial Exaltation has the potential to Exalt someone out of nowhere without any apparent Dragon-Blooded heritage but to me that was always something intended for player characters rather than a phenomena we should expect to see happening all over the world.

    IMO we should ask why a locale has Dragon-Blooded rather than why not....
