  • With the additional context of the Perilous keyword on Aurora Bleed, to put it in video game terms, you need to reveal the weakspot before trying to hit it. If you go straight for the week spot then you get slapped.

    Your options aren't just slog punch or eat the aurora bleed....

  • PluckyHero, were you the same viewer that got a shout out last session for binge watching to catch up?

  • I don't have the opening in my schedule to stream, but I would definitely be interested in watching.

    I'm a big fan of Exaltwitch, and I was looking for more games to listen to/watch. I tried Swallows of the South, and the humor of the main storyline just wasn't to my taste.

    The Off-hand penalty is only referenced in the Merit and Martial Arts rules, but isn't ever introduced on its own. Is the referenced -1 only supposed to apply to attacks? How does this interact with the entry on Dual Wielding on p.586?...

    I had to do some research to find Youths. It has a specific definition of young unwed male, similar to maiden. Master denotes too much control IMO, and squire makes it sound like they are directly apprenticed or beholden to someone. Alternatively, bachelor has a bit of baggage, connotation wise.

    I feel like Youths and Maidens both evoke similar imagery and feelings, and have similar connotations of unwed and un-promised. I also like that it either intimates that they will always be this way, or that someday they will break the cycle and be united. But that's me....

    Good call.

    Now the question is if/how this affects the Sids. A shifting of their castemarks to the appropriate astrological symbol seems very appropriate. Would their anima color change to? I'm not deep enough into astrology to know if the associated colors come from there.

    I can kinda see where OP was going with Liminals, but I don't know if I'm sold on it. I'll need to ruminate on it further, as well as read up on what little liminal literature we have....

  • In meatspace, the only people I know who know of or play Exalted are the ones who introduced me.

    The majority of my play experience was PbP, on the sister site to the old Exalted Compendium Redux, PatternSpider. That site was later annexed by another RP site, but tehre remains a small contingency of Exalted games/interest there.

    http://www.rpdom.com/

    I haven't been an active RP participant for a few years there, but it's good to get the word out.

    I hadn't noticed previously that if you include dwarf planets/planetoids you end up with a whole other set of 5. That's really neat.

    You could maybe do something with the ascendant and descendant themes of astrology with each alternate maiden where their counterpart assumes their mantle while the other descends. Saturn passes into the Underworld because (plot), becoming the Dead Maiden, and Pluto ascends from the Underworld to become the new Maiden of Endings.

    Journeys goes to Tired. Battles becomes Shattered.

    I can't decide if Secrets becomes Bleeding, and...

    replied to What would X be in the Exalted Setting?
    Anyone else playing Atlas Reactor? MOBA style character design, with simultaneous turn-based action. LoL meets X-COM and everyone goes at the same time in sync, set in a hyper-futuristic/post-apocalyptic setting.

    To start-

    Helio- Twilight and he won't let anyone forget it.
    Grey- Day Caste. Came back from the brink of death, now with a shadowy and mysterious streak.
    Rask- While I hate to knee-jerk make the Giant Kitty Monster a Lunar, he's a friggin Full Moon. UNLEASH THE BEAST.
    Gremo- They're either First Circle Demons, or some other servitor race that...

    So does that mean you can use Disengage while in Crash? Whether that is the case is somewhat ambiguous in the core, and it's been discussed around here a few times without a definitive answer.

    Edit: just to be clear, I understand that your answer wasn't directly referencing Disengage happening in crash, but that was the initialy provided example and it wasn't corrected....

  • In past editions I loved me some mortwights. I hadn't re-read their entry since my first reading of the 3e Core, and now I know exactly what you're talking about now Major

    Trying to track "goes 3 ticks sooner than they should" is a little fiddly, but an extra 3i gimme each round is a little unprecedented. The closest thing in Solar charms, in both effect and theme, would be Racing Hare Method, which represents the Solar's lightning speed in combat, and they only get extra initiative if they roll 10s on a rush. I even looked in Snake Style, which also has incentives if you...

    Thanks, that was my assessment, as well, just wanted to make sure.

    That is still a somewhat unfavorable exchange, as both Full Defense and Disengage cost Initiative, and they still get an attack in and you don't, they just don't get their bonus.

    If all parties delay action in combat, is there any gating mechanism to force them to act?

    This situation came to me while reading the Shield thread, where it came up that paired light weapons are best at clashing. The potential situation came to me, where Dualies is delaying to attempt a clash, Shieldy recognizes this, and I tried to deduce what the best tactic is to counter that.

    Followup question, is there an obvious response to the "Delay and Clash" tactic?

  • Sounds like a good start to me. Maybe also some suggested intimacies? Many schools instill a certain philosophy in people, even if it is just "I'm better than you because I went to Harvard."

    edit: maybe also some merits representing alumnus status? Contacts?

    Thanks! Hadn't thought about extra attack charms, and wouldn't have thought that simultaneous turns would produce an onslaught penalty.

    I know it is a bit gauche to mention the leak, and I hate to lead the witness, but at one point this charm was listed as Supplemental. That combined with the stipulation that you must have a higher initiative leads me to believe that RAI was for this to be used on the brawler's turn to boost their defense for later in the round. Is that a reasonable reading? Sorry if that's a bit of a pivot, but I was rereading both copies of the charm after you response...

    I checked the dev ruling compilation, found nothing, so apologies if this is asked and answered-

    Is there something about Wind and Stones Defense that I'm missing, or does it only have an effect if you use it in conjunction with Falling Hammer Strike?

  • Wasn't trying to discourage anything, necessarily. Apologies if I misunderstood the situation.

    IMO nothing would "break", other than the viability of these antagonists. Generalizing, these powers were probably given to these beings either for a thematic reason, or to help them better handle being outnumbered by a party. They can use this to regain some tempo if a round is starting and they aren't in a good place and are probably about to be brutalized. Think of some kind of power that would serve a similar function that doesn't offend your sensibilities.

    Which...

  • I was ruminating on these concepts myself recently, sparked by the mention of the Greek Mysteries in the Scion 2e preview material.

    You can have religious sub-sets within a greater belief system, be it the specific devotion like the above Hindi example, or particular worship of Demeter and Persephone. It's this little discussed cross-section of institutionalized personal philosophy as a sub-set of a larger worldview.

    Just because I venerate the local field god, and live my life according to his values, doesn't mean I don't believe that the Unconquered Sun exists.

    replied to Do Devil Tigers have Soul Hierarchies?
    Just read an interesting article about early human cognition and the borg. The feeling of having soul hierarchy might be something akin to a multicameral mind instead of a bicameral mind.

  • Just from regular initiative shenanigans you should have something to track if someone has already had their turn, right?

    "I have the highest initiative, I go first, then someone else withers me, and now I'm lower, but I won't go again this turn" wouldn't look too different than "I have lower initiative, but I use a power that lets me go first and it counts as my turn."
