    replied to [PEACH] Cooking Charms
    Well if it's a fat and lazy charm you're going to want some kind of duration. Try using Celestial Bliss trick as your guidepost in this regard. You can absolutely make it a Defining Intimacy, but it should probably be easier to resist than Celestial Bliss Trick. Maybe the target has the intimacy so long as the feasting and festivities continue.

    replied to Moana as an Exalted story
    Maui is definitely a very experienced Lunar. Moana strikes me as a freshly Exalted Eclipse. She accomplishes so feats that are definitely athletics charms, and does so similarly crazy stuff with sailing.

  • Given Exigents should be the guide to custom charms, I would like there to be active coordination between the Crucible of Legends team and the Exigents team to ensure that together they represent a complete guide to producing custom content for your game.

    replied to When Should NPCs Launch Decisives?
    Crash really isn't that bad. I had a player who's strategy against mortals was to let them hit his character until he crashed and then let them keep doing that to him until he recovered from the crash than use just that little bit of Initiative he got from to use Heaven Thunder Hammer to launch his target and usually 1-shot them.

    Even if you don't have cool ways to respond to being crashed, simply allowing a character to waste withering attacks on a crashed player is an effective defense for the rest of the party.

    replied to When Should NPCs Launch Decisives?
    I tend to fire off decisive attacks if the NPC has the initiative to do it. One because the players rarely allow npcs to even have initiative long enough to use it, and two throwing around low damage attacks adds more value to the smaller systems of the game. Ox-body shows its value, wound penalties subtly influence the pace of battle, healing starts to matter etc. Three seeing lots of smaller decisive attacks makes the big decisive attacks much more dramatic, players remember those times they got careless and an Exalt dropped a big attack on them, the crippling rules have saved a few characters...

  • The Unconquered Sun id really the best of people that we can imagine, at least at his core he is. That he is broken-hearted and stuck playing the games to avoid facing the world doesn't really change that. In the case of this Infernal suddenly showing up in his presence he would be compelled by his very nature to act. In this case his action would almost certainly be his compassion shining through. He would give her some truly uplifting words and then probably summon Lytek and maybe some other gods of healing to address the afflicting that is the infernal corruption of her exaltation, he is still...

  • Didn't Paradox give Vampire to an outside company after WW or OP caused some major controversies with their writing? Losing Vampire is kinda huge.

    replied to Intimacies and how commonly do they change
    Yeah, because everyone I've ever met doesnt exist. Unless, you're saying there are Exalts in the real world twisting people's sexual orientations.

    More relevant, as I said it's a setting thing. The setting is loaded with characters that are into pretty much everything.

    Also yes yikes. The setting is incredibly cynical about people and power. Take that away and you just have shiney people hitting eachother with surfboard sized swords....

    The appropriate response to being uncomfortable roleplaying a seduction if to let the dice do most of the talking and fade to black for the action.

    If you dont want to do any sexual stuff you establish it up front then everyone can make appropriate characters.

    replied to Intimacies and how commonly do they change
    I've opinions on the Red Rule that I wont both sharing, none positive.

    What is more relevant is the rules concerning Sexual Orientation. I personally feel that treating sexual orientation as an intimacy rather than a solid immutable concept. Is much more fitting for the setting. Creation really comes across as a place which people are more sexually fluid. In particular when a weak willed individual is faced with the overwhelming might of an Exalt. If it really matters that much make a charactrr's sexual orientation a Defining Intimacy, this thread suggests that nobody has seen a Defining...

  • His talent is for taking an idea and turning that idea into evocative game mechanics. Yes, he had the idea that Yozis are made of charms, but he did it with the blessing of though who originally wrote the Yozis. If it was good it not is entirely subjective, personally I love it, and a lot of very happy and excited fans loved it too....

  • If they convince Neph to come back to exalted and we would see an uptick in content. That man could write once he got into it.

  • Lunars is coming up on a year. I'm slightly impatient for the book to be released, but that has a lot of past frustrations built into, so my impatience is probably slightly unreasonable. If I see another Exalted Splat go up on kickstarter in the next few months I say things are probably okay. Without a large team major spats coming out at a rate of about 1 per year is probably reasonable. We've gotten good content from the new dev team, so I'm inclined to let them work so long as content keeps coming. However, we are way behind on books, so I pretty much expect them to always be working on a splatbook...

    replied to Intimacies and how commonly do they change
    You're pretty much right. Any realistic person probably has dozens or even hundreds of Minor Intimacies that people should be able to play off of, kinda negating the cold sell arguement. It's a reason I tend to give characters tones of little intimacies. I don't just put down a religion, or philosophy, as an intimacy, I put down many different aspects of a religion at different levels to show what parts the character values. Cultural details get thrown in too. But if you aren't going to do that simply allowing the cold sell serves as an excellent shorthand....

    That sure as hell is dodgey, and that is what makes it realistic. There is a reason the term manipulative has negative connotations in English, people do try to cold sell you stuff all the time and yeah it does work sometimes....

    replied to Intimacies and how commonly do they change
    Personally, I like intamacies to come and go, change, and evolve constantly. The social systems are built for it. It isn't happening you aren't really engaging with the social systems very much. That's fine for a lot of groups. A lot of players come from the traditional view of roleplaying where your character and everything they do is in your head and if you dont want your character to do or feel something they dont.

    Exalted's social rules encourage characters to grow and change in unexpected ways and players to adapt to the changes their characters go through. I like this because...

    Mastering an Enemy's Martial Arts

    I think most of us can say that we have seen in some form of fiction with a character so talented at martial arts that they learn martial arts techniques simply from fighting an opponent that uses them or even simply by observing someone use them in a fight.

    It seems to be completely fitting for a Solar Martial Artist to be fighting against and Immaculate Monk and in the middle of the fight simply start throwing the monk's moves right back at them. The real question is how do we go about doing this in Exalted? I kind of feel like most STs would simply allow a Solar with Martial Arts...

    replied to Help me stat Mela the Elemental Dragon of Air
    The distinction between Primordials and Yozi being purely political was always a good one. The distinction between demon and deva is the same, purely political.

    The Elemental Dragons changing to some form of Behemoth seems to me an entirely unnecessary and arbitrary change. Given I'm almost 100% certain that we will never see stats for one of the Elemental Dragons or any of Gaia's Third Circle Souls I'll go right ahead and ignore it.

    As for the question of how to stat an Elemental Dragon, you really need to determine what kind of story you're trying to tell. We dont...
