  • Took me a few days to be able to crack it open. I can't stress enough how pretty this book is. Even some of the art I wasn't a fan of looks great when printed out like this.

    As mentioned, the gilding does flake a little, so your first few uses will leave your hands all glittery.

  • It's a cost saving measure. USPS doing final delivery is cheaper.

    I've been trying to plan out a one-shot that attempts to accomplish the one-two punch of introducing players to the system and the setting.

    The quandary I haven't quite worked through is that I feel that the easiest way to be introduced to the system is from Mortal play up. Conversely, I find the easiest way to be introduced to the setting is by playing an Exalted. I'm not terribly adverse to mid-session exaltation with all pre-generated stuff, but doing both while also demoing what makes the Exalted setting special requires a special set of situations.

    I'm just trying...

    I mean, they already have a prime example to pattern themselves after: The Scarlet Empress did just that.

    Maybe similar to having a commander, having multiple BGs represent the pack. One group does their distract type maneuver to open up for the other group.

    Not too dissimilar to having a Melee BG and an Archery BG.

  • Dallas TX here. As mentioned previously I received my notification last week. According to FedEx tracking it was dispatched for final delivery through USPS this morning.

    Deluxe Book with Screen without Map (regrettably) if anyone is keeping track.

    I agree, I had just seen some people on this forum pushing for immediate damage last time this came up, so I guess I pre-emptively acknowledged it as an interpretation I don't agree with.

    There is actually some ambiguity in how it is stated: It can be read as any initiative damage greater than current initiative rolls over into HLs. Alternatively, it can be read that any attacks against a crashed target roll as damage, so your first attack crashes them, and any subsequent attacks then roll as HLs.

    The operative part of the text that raised this question for me was-


    It all comes down to when you technically have "fallen into Initiative Crash". Is it done in a granular fashion, where you check for Crash after each damage point, or is it...

    Needing a spell to activate your latent working also creates the potentially amazing story plot where someone else learns the spell to activate your transformation, or learns how to Distort it....

  • I don't remember where I heard it originally on this subject, but don't be afraid to tell your players that you need a minute to accommodate their latest move.
    "okay guys, take five and grab some Funions and Mountain Dew. I'm going to need a minute."

    I'd also suggest drawing inspiration from other media, instead of just historical instances like you mentioned. If you thoroughly file the serial numbers off, people can still enjoy a changed setting retelling of another story or scene. Just look at our long running forum game The Great Marriage of Exalted and [Insert...

    Leetsepeak Yeah, I did a double take while reading the earlier posts and looking at your linked maps. "Why are they asking where Karn should be? It's right there!"

    On the topic of Medo, is it new to 3e? I think I'm having a bout of early dementia, as I could have sworn it appeared in a previous supplement, but both COTD North and COCD Underworld turned up bupkiss.

    Slight aside, are the assets you are using to add names and whatnot already posted publicly somewhere else and that is why no one is as impressed as I am?

  • Well, you could have the body-discovery/exaltation in the setting as is, just not so repeatable. A scavenger lord Indiana Jonesing his way through a tomb and Exalting is P cool in my book.

    Depending on how long you see an Eclipse lasting, and how efficacious the first strike was, you may have more Solars reincarnating than usual, unless of course you tweak that as well.

    Are eclipses regular in your setting, or rare and auspicious? Is there an implied collusion on the part of the Unconquered Sun in the Usurpation by causing an eclipse?

    Since I can't say much better on the subject than what has already been said, I want to point out that the Mela's Fangs region is just as new and different as the Dreaming Sea, but just hasn't received the same amount of love.

    Has anyone done anything cool with the area or have any ideas?

    This is just the fledgling of an idea, but maybe play on the fact that even though the body of water is large, it may have some permanently frozen areas. I'm imaging a city on the ice based around a large first age ship that was frozen in place when the First Age McGuffin that kept the...

  • The main reason to get a mote pool at all IMO is so you can attune artifacts.

    Such a strange rule, these fantastic wonders that shape the setting can only be used by very specific individuals.

    replied to Ysyr and the Dragon Blooded
    This thread made me take another hard look at the map, as I too was originally perplexed by some of the flourishes, and I noticed something.

    Some of the circled areas have a little line coming off of them with some small text, which I believe is supposed to represent that they are magnified, and by how much, but only with in-setting squiggles.

    The other circles seem to represent either emphasis, or sphere of influence. The Scavenger Lands has a circle, there's a sublte one around the Blessed Isle and Threshold, etc.
