    Build Questions: How to Make a Magistrate

    When building a magistrate character as a starting Dragon-Blooded character, what do you consider important/salient choices for mechanical representation?

    I'm a little vague on things like what Merits would represent the character being a magistrate - for example, Backing (as magistrates technically have neither underlings or superiors per-se), Allies or Retainers (to represent the scribe traveling with them and other mortals who come under their thumb).

    Do they have Backing at all? Something else to represent their authority?

  • Treatment of Sorcerers in 3E - Realm Society and Immaculate Order

    I'm a little unclear on how the Immaculate Order treats sorcerers and sorcery in general in Third Edition.
    From reading through the Dragon-Blooded and Realm books, I see statements saying things like that people with a talent for sorcery sometimes come to the Immaculate Order to pursue their art/talent.

    I'm not entirely sure I get how the Order treats these things, if they encourage them, discourage them, harness them, treat sorcerers suspiciously or view it as just another tool? Would there be an intellectual rivalry between the Order and the Heptagram, for example, with sorcery...

  • See, I didn't know the backstory of the vicissitudes behind the development or your circumstances as a freelancer.
    I have a lot more faith now and things make a lot more sense.

    You developed and wrote for Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought, I know that much, so you wrote the best incarnation of Dragon-Bloods - both narratively and mechanically - of all editions.

    Is there anything that we, the community, can do to help you guys?



    Had no idea of any of this.
    I know it's not much, but I gave your YT a sub....

  • ..............You win both the thread and my heart.



    Whoooooooooaaaa... I would have went with "intense staring" and "intentful throat-clearing while emoting towards an older copy of Exalted: Abyssals, then tapping a watch with a finger repeatedly". Why did you go straight for the whip?

    But in any case, this is mostly venting because I don't have a solution. Just frustration.



    I didn't actually know about the inner workings of the company and the dev change. Reading about it in this and a previous post, I'm...

  • The "let's not rush perfection" argument doesn't work after it took 5 years just to get Dragon-Bloods and maybe Lunars (the latter of which aren't out yet as of the time of this post).

    Infernals can be said to be "non-essential". Obviously, we want 3E Infernals, but the Core splats are Solars, DB, Abyssal and Sidereal, with Lunars possibly essential as well. Those are the ones that absolutely must be developed and released within a reasonable span of time.

    You cannot have an edition of Exalted go past half a decade without those splats being available....

  • 1) But there are certain stats and rules that you need in order to run the game. Character Creation rules, for instance. Charm trees, for instance. Base mechanics like how things like Sidereal Astrology and Resonance would work in 3E, if they'd still be things, for instance.
    This is one of the things I don't get about this argument, which I've heard before - "people are spoiled brats because they expect the developers to supply them with RULES! Pfeh! Back in my day we made our own rules!".

    So why do I need Exalted, then?
    I can just make my own game - system...

  • But that's just you filling in the blanks with homebrew and essentially saying "This Is Fine".
    It's not a real solution, it's a temporary bandaid - worse, it's the kind of bandaid that works in one group but fails another and changes from Storyteller to Storyteller....

  • 5 YEARS with no Abyssals, Liminals or Sidereals.

    Half a decade has passed since 3E became a thing and we've just got Dragon-Bloods, with Lunars crawling in development.
    I cannot imagine running a game long-term as Storyteller and not having need of an Abyssal and Sidereal books.

    What are Abyssal Mains doing in the meantime? Staying in 2.5? Switching to Solar/DB in the meantime? Giving up and moving on to other games?

    I've sort of switched to DB, but lost my group so I guess I'm mostly in the "giving up and moving on to other games" category.
    What about you?
