    Instilling discipline and team work is not as hard as you make it out to be, ask any one who had to go through boot camp. The whole process is about breaking the individual down, and rebuilding them up. The main techniques in this is mass punishment, when one fails or messes up they all mess up. Combine this with sleep deprivation, hunger (In basic you eat close to or over 3000 calories a day and still hungry, so not being starved). Same idea.

    I would take option 1, but with the caveat that service must be in ways that do not violate the oaths, and if she wants him to get married she must let the wife pick the drapes.
    second since we will be settling the area with Hill Tribes, I suggest we recruit from there and build a force I call Iron Wolves, essentially the skill of the Hill Tribes Warriors but with discipline and better equipment, a focus on team work and a deemphasis on seeking personal glory and honor.

    Just remember to include that nasty bit of permanent Limit and issues with Chimeraism.

    It is what ever makes sense for your game. That said, a fang of 5 soldiers would be lead by a Sergeant or Corporal, who would probably be mortal or rarely a Lost Egg. At higher levels there would still be a NCO aka Sergeant at each level managing the personnel. The highest would be the Sergeant Major like rank who has the responsibility of overseeing exexution of punishment and upholding of standards. In the real world the division of ranks amongst the non officers was Private, Corporal, Sergeant, Sergeant Major and Quarter Master.
    Corporal held the responsibility of maintaing the discipline...

    That is does not make it High Fantasy in of it self. High Fantasy has more to do with clear distinctions of Good and Evil. The Chronicles of Narnia are High Fantasy as are the Lord of the Rings, because of Lion Jesus, and Tower Satan. (Yes I know Sauron was not a tower in the books). Jack Vance's Dieing Earth is Low Fantasy as is GRR Martin's a Song of Ice and Fire.
    It has nothing to do with the amount of magic in the setting. You can have a High Magic Low Fantasy, or a Low Magic High Fantasy....

    Exalted is not High Fantasy, it is Low Fantasy. These designations have little to do with how much magic is in a setting but rather a quality of how morality plays in how the world works. High Fantasy is a clear distinction from Good and Evil, and the hero is good the villain is bad. Low Fantasy morality becomes subjective and more gray.

    I just think Thaumaturgy should cover not just instinctual mastery of esoteric artes and shamanism or common magic, but the learned artes as well. Yes most "Occult" books of magic are just trashy worthless guides that either do nothing (most of them) or do something you have no idea what they are for. This type of model is in fact supported by the writings of Robert E Howard and HP Lovecraft who are both major influences on how I see Exalted.

    In a modern day emergency trauma center you would be right, but in a back woods iron age maybe bronze age with limited access to various types of advanced healing techniques, Kasai is pretty much out of the fight for a long time not even mentioning the risk of inner cranial pressure, internal bleeding, those broken ribs can easily turn into a flail chest with either tension pneumo thorax or hemotension thorax which takes a chest tube. The man is in dire need of surgery, with these injuries the best he can hope for is six months of recuperation followed with orthopedic and physical therapy and...

    music for Exalted

    Looking for some music tracks for an exalted game, and inspirational tracks and a opening theme. I always envisioned the game as a anime series so music tends to help to inspire for writing adventures and plot lines. So any one have any suggestions .

    Thing is him eating the heart would be no more of a loss than him not eating it. All of these injuries are career enders, and duty still calls.

    Except all the thaumaturgy merit do is some how make sorcery more common than thaumaturgy in theory as any one can learn it where thaumaturgy must be taken at character generation.

    One of the things to remember is that prayer is a ritual and in ancient times was indistinguishable from magic. So thaumaturgy didnt detract for me.

    Hmm, looking at Exalted I see this problem of too many skills and not enough at the same time. Occult is kind of specialized as is Linguistics as it refers to creative writting and the hidden knowlege of the world, but Lore represents all of academia, as melee is your fight stat and medicine is your heal skill.

    After reading how occult is sappose to work as some super natural enlightenment, it just doesn't gel and goes against how the occult skill worked before, as a learnable skill made up of strange knowledge not this hippy dippy pretentious bull shit that gives me flash backs...

  • Not all of them have to be officers in command possitions, or immaculate monks. Some could be Warstrider pilots or Warbird pilots. Others as Heptagram Sorcerers or Magitech Engineers.
    Reason well super valuable resource like a cache of First Age or Shoganate Artifacts being held by a Circle of Anethama.

    Thaumaturgy and 3rd Edition

    So one of the things that bothered me was the change in how thaumaturgy works in Exalted, it use to be something that any one could learn in theory or apply to their lives, now it is some wierd thing you have to be chosen to use. It was an extension to how the world worked, then it became a power or ability you are born with that can only be tought directly. No more tomes of magic for rituals a thousand years old. Oh and now the line of salt is a ritual so unless that keeps getting shared teacher to student who both have this wierd ability now hungry ghosts will rise up and eat the whole goddamn...

    Start shooting arrows to draw the monsters attention while running to the Altar, while screaming songs to the Moon Goddess. Drown out her siren's voice with ritousness. Show her what Luna thinks of those who abandon thier charge.

    So got the book, and it is huge, like text book big. Funny how I find that the more muted colors help the book my giving all the art a hand painted feel that lends to the presentation.
