  • As I recall, Quick Reflexes is specifically costed the way it is to be the 12th die of Join Battle. That is, it was expected that you would have Wits 5, Awareness 5, and a Join Battle specialty before Quick Reflexes was worth it....

    The only reassurance I can grant you is that I sincerely doubt that anyone will be so satisfied by a fan made Jumpstart that they won’t get the actual Sids book when it comes out. Not to mention, I don’t think that anyone involved in making the 1E and 2E Sidereals books would be in a position to earn money off of Storyteller Vault sales....

    I think the important question is why didn’t you read the content guidelines to start with? Third Edition updates are pretty high on the list, as I understand it.

    started a topic Handling the Bull of the North

    Handling the Bull of the North

    So, the Bull of the North has problems. He (and his Circle) are snowflake even by Exalted standards, and camp out on firmly PC territory. So, inspired by some rants, here's my more PC-friendly interpretation of the Bull, his Circle, and his overall situation.

    The Tepet Campaign.
    To those who know what to look for, the Tepet legions were sent to die. While there is no hard proof, anyone with an ear for Dynastic politics or an eye for military affairs can see that the army that blundered into Futile Blood is not the army that clawed its way out drenched in the blood of its foes....

    This is true, For an example, the brief fiction piece about the Vendetta in the House Iselsi section of WFHW. Written as a fiction piece because the author couldn't get it to work as anything else.

    I think Cthulhutech did it that way, with all the metaplot in a few dedicated metaplot books. Definitely the way I'd do it, if I had to.

    More specifically, I'd say the big problem is when the interconnected fiction is in the present, and (especially) covering major events. Reading about Tepet Arada killing Fear Eater? Big, but in the past. Strawmaiden Janest facing off against...

    Fundamentally, an RPG book is not a novel. It should not be treated as one. To do so without compromising its capability as an RPG book is difficult to say the least.
    At the core of it, every word you (the author) spend telling me what other characters are doing is a word you aren't telling the player what they could be doing. In fact, it's not even neutral, it's negative. My character can't do that because this other character already did.
    While I acknowledge the point made upthread by KnightFenrirWulfhart that a metaplot development isn't that different from a splatbook or setting...

    Metaplot is always a bad idea, IMO. Especially in such a high-powered game as Exalted.
