    Well, think about how the first situation goes down in an action movie and not a gritty war drama and therein your answer will live.

    As for the quick kill on the boss that you worked so hard to get the drop on, again consider how it plays out in movies, there may be banter, and a struggle, and then the kill. Or, remember, you only have to engage with the rules when it is dramatically appropriate, the tests of actually getting the drop on the villain was all the challenge you needed. It isn't necessarily that the character is trivial story-wise, but that the conflict is trivial....

  • Surprised PneumaPilot didn't mention that Liminals made their Debut in the penultimate 2nd edition book, Masters of Jade which featured a Liminal on the cover, with additional art and a namedrop on page 50 for Dame Crimson. She and her Guild associate Casim Thurat can also be seen in the Ex3 core on page 86.

    There's a passage referencing them on MoJ page 43, in regards to fighting a Lunar, in a classic comic book case of confused heroes fighting each other for the same cause-
    "Eventually, the Guild, citing the power of the
    ghosts and their champion, enlisted the aid...

  • I'm glad I wasn't 100% off the reservation with that suggestion.

    While I was doing my own Pro Con list of Jadeborn, castes weren't necessarily on my "to-keep" list, again unless we can come up with some redeeming quality.

    Chaos-seers definitely were on the keep list. There are the Wyrd Boyz. (not that a Space Ork parallel is my sole criterion for keeping them),

    Their aesthetic as Dwarves, Elves, and Hobbits/Gnomes was definitely not something I would keep, although I don't think I would go 1 to 1 on a Ork inspiration here, although you could do...

  • So my general guidelines for adopting anything into 3e is getting down to base concepts and evalutating anything. Take the good, leave the bad, make it better.

    I'm curious, what about them as "dwarves" really speaks to you? I think this could really lead your efforts as to what you want out of them.

    I meant to reply to this thread weeks ago, but got distracted, and was recently reminded of it. My friends are dragging me back into 40k, and I had a old bunch of space orkz I bought a while back, and I realized, if I was going to use the mountainfolk to expy something,...

    I think it depends on the kind of camera, and the genre conceits you are trying to play to. Maybe if the photo is taken with an actual film camera, possibly with special occult contact paper, or it could be "digital" but cursed/blessed to create links, with some sort of evocative catch, like, the picture has to be of the individual in a moment of strong emotions.

    Re: selfie thing, again, if you can find something cool about it, instead of it just being a way to cheese a system you created, go for it. instead of asking if it would work, as yourself, why should it work. First...

    Maybe some minor prophecy and danger sense, but it has the possibility of being wildly wrong, so you end up screaming at nothing?

  • The antagonist charts, or the Anydice charts?

    I only took intro to stats in college, but I remember when I was first linked to anydice a couple years ago, it was pretty overwhelming, but then in a fit of mania I stayed up all night playing with it, and then at the end I was like Neo seeing matrix code.

    The thing that helped me the most with anydice (after I got the hang of the syntax) was changing the view to Graph, and the data to At Least, so that in most simple terms, you look at the x axis to find your target, and then find the point on the graph to tell you your...

  • Lukkychukky re: power levels, there are some brief guidelines in the Antagonists section when it comes to dicepools and competency, but one thing that will greatly help in judging a combat's difficulty will be some basic dice math. With a target number of 7 and double 10's, a dicepool has an average success rate of about 50%, with a slight swinginess upward. Depending on how into probabilities and statistics you are into we can pull in charts and stuff, but even without that you can know roughly how easily someone can hit or be hit based off that number. As pools get higher, most of the dice tricks...

    replied to Exalted Play-by-post roleplay/forums
    Seconding this. RPnation is the inheritor of ye old PatternSpider.net, the PbP sister site to ye old Exalted Compendium Redux. There is still an Exalted holdover community from when it was an Exalted only site. If you are brave enough you can actually search back in the archives and find all of the old posts from those sites, although they aren't organized....

  • James Bell said as much on the DB comment section too when I asked. I think I got confused, because they sent out a preview manuscript for Scion through backerkit, instead of backer only messages. Although, his comment hinted at the backer PDF being forthcoming, which sounds like it means that pre-orders get to review that as well.

  • Sorry to be brief earlier, I've been on a priority outage bridge since 2am, and was idly posting to keep myself awake, didn't mean to be brief and or contrary.

    To be a bit more precist, IIRC, when you "pre-order" through the backerkit link, you get access to all of the backer updates from the kickstarter, including the consolidated manuscript download link.

    edit: again, I was wrong. Please disregard.

    https://discord.gg/JJJZhX should get you there.

  • Actually, I'm fairly confident you are able to get the backer manuscript when you preorder.

    edit for future readers: I was wrong. Scion used backerkit to send out previews since they came out after the fact, instead of during the kickstarter in a backer only update.

    While I generally call it Côte d'Ivoire whenever speaking about it, I didn't realize that was a point of contention, so I just did it for a pereceived attempt at clarity. Thanks for the heads up, now I have a reason to call it that other than being a bit of a francophile.

    I was wondering if the three tribal groups that originally founded Great Forks had names, and how much those identities carried over. Although you would still run into strangeness with more recent migrants to Great Forks. Maybe they are hyphenated with Greater-. Greater-Lookshyan. Greater-Thornese.

    Neat. Although, looking at it, would Stalking Nightmare be compatible with Memory Drinking Meditation? MDM (eh?) calls out the Sacred Hunt specifically, so I wonder how much that is supposed to be mechanically binding, or if it is just fancy wording for taking something's shape....

    Excellent point. I'll rephrase that to hoping for some of the more out there cache charms. This is a solid foundation, and cool and helpful power on its own, but I'm really curious to see what the heights of these powers are, especially because it has it's own tree....

    started a topic Lunars Preview!

    Lunars Preview!

    So, in case you weren't keeping up with the 20 page Lunar Playtest thread (that is upholding the storied tradition of Lunar Threads) a straight up Lunars Preview dropped! (I wasn't, I actually first realized this existed because of a post on FivePoles, but the playtest thread was the only place I saw it mentioned)

    http://theonyxpath.com/lunars-preview-exalted/

    It may be due to the fact that I still have the sense of humor of a 12 year old, but how succinct and nonchalant the flavor text for Heart-Drinking Allure is made me giggle.

    The corollary that Memory-Drinking...
