    Ahh, that dreaded Deathlord, The Count of Words, sending beloved tales to the unreality of Oblivion.

    In past editions I banned 5 dot artifacts at character creation because their potency tended to steal the focus of the game and make it more about them than the players. With these 5 dot artifacts that hasn't changed, but now the plot is baked into the artifact. It serves the two-fold roles of signaling to the ST that the player wants this story to be part of their own, and the malevolence gives players reasons to not automatically use of such potent artifacts such potent artifacts limiting its ability to take over the story.

    I like it that way because it makes it easier to bring...

    Pretty sure that is a Chillikin still being constructed. Though it is odd because they are supposed the be engineered lifeforms, not literal artifacts to put put together like some robot to be turned on when complete....

  • The one thing I want from fair folk that has been missing in the past is for them to be a credible threat to Creation. As scary as the story of the Balorian Crusade is, the fair folk haven't really lived up to that story. They have in fact been very ignorable and I've need found a reason to use them in my games as the are pretty impotent outside the Wyld.

    So at some point Arianna lost an arm.

    I scanned through it at 5 in the morning, so no more comment.

    replied to Range Bands Movement and Distance
    All sorts of crazy pops out of it with or without numbers. My plan, until it becomes a problem is to describe the length of a round to be more flexible to account for various discrepancies that pop up.

    replied to Range Bands Movement and Distance
    Since I do most of my gaming online, and all of my players love minis anyway I'm planning on experimenting with distance used in Pathfinder, as such distances are practical for use with such formats. There are a lot of war games that use something that approximates to range bands as well.

    In such a setup range bands would approximate to.

    Close 0-5 feet
    Short 5-30 feet
    Medium 30-60 feet
    Long 60-120 feet
    Extreme 120+ feet

    As I said before I intend to experiment with these numbers. Distances above Short are likely to change, but those...

    replied to why are the yozis prisons intentionally flawed?
    3e moved away from it, but one of the issues in Exalted is what happens when one perfect effect runs into another. Given perfection can in fact be a thing in Exalted it's something they had to worry about.

    In the case of a perfect Yozi prisons there is the very real possibility that a Yozi's perfect defenses might In fact supersed a perfect prison allowing them to break out. An imperfect prison doesn't run into this issue, instead the Yozi's can crash through layers of imperfect prisons and probably end up back where they started as the thrash around a whole bunch.

    Lets...

  • I say just pick the school you want to run. The players can easily be from any house they want. If for some reason inter-house conflict keeps them from working together the instructors can easily force them to work together.

    What you really want is to ensure that NPCs all have differing loyalties. Some place the Realm first, others their house, some faith, some are totally selfish. You'll also want to ensure that the players feel the demands of loyalties and the conflicts that come with it.

    To apply pressure to exalt you simply need to award NPCs that Exalt. Use their...

    replied to Tweaking caste exclusive supernals
    If I were to actually change Supernal, I'd restrict Supernal to the 5 traditional caste abilities of each caste. Players can still get the discounted rates of the caste abilities added in 3e, but no Supernal.

    Those traditional Caste abilities do say quite a bit about each Caste.

  • I forget the actual thread. I know it was December 2010. Anyway, ended up with the Ebon Dragon playing the role of Santa flying the Imperial Manse around Creation as his sleigh pulled by cannibalistic infant Sidereals. All of which was completely supported by the rules.

    Obviously, there was a lot more happened, and I'm pretty terrible at communicating it, but the thread was hilarious.
