  • As Ex3 says, "The sheer killing power and near-invulnerability of a behemoth gives even the most potent Exalt pause"....

    This is a bit of a long shot, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who is curious about the new Exalt types, the ones that haven't been revealed yet.

    Is there anything at all you can tell us about them? Maybe what book we can expect to find more information on them in?...

  • I don't think Essence is really a good indicator of power universally. Mata-Yadh is not a spirit. An Essence 6 spirit, Exalt and behemoth are reasonably all quite different.

    The tyrant lizard is pretty powerful for a creature without Essence....

    2/3 a god! The Sumerians had some odd ideas about heredity. I like to think it was an influence on the Yennin....

    One of the most dangerous non-Deathlord ghosts in 2e was a Dragon-Blooded Air Dragon master called Mother Transgression. She retained her martial arts skills in death.

    Oh wow. Those are all pretty much what I guessed except for Lookshy. I had them pegged at around a thousand, with a larger proportion of non-Realm Outcastes elsewhere.

    Thanks for all the answers....

    There's a lot of questions flying around in the thread and a few of mine have been missed, so I'm going to take another stab at posting them before I give up on them....

    I hear WFHW will give some new twists on the Great Houses. Can you tell us anything about House Iselsi?

    Iselsi has always been oddly inconsistent in the books. On one page they are effectively outlaws living under assumed names abroad for fear of persecution from Realm authorities, on another their political power as a House has been dissolved but they still work in the All-Seeing Eye and Thousand Scales under the name Iselsi....

    Seconding that the Aura thing is really cool. It's a very elegant mechanic to help distinguish the different elemental Aspects.

    I assume it's easier/cheaper to enter the Aura Mode of your matching Aspect?

    replied to A Clutch of Dragons: First Draft PDF
    ACoD has a key advantage over the core in that it is a non-profit fan work.

    I spent many, many hours sending out requests to a range of fan artists and professional illustrators for permission to use specific images. Many artists both amateur and professional are happy enough to give permission to use art that they hold the rights to for non-profit purposes. Less so for a professional publication like Ex3.

    I have continued to make these requests and several other very pretty pieces of art coming up in the next edition....

    Thanks everyone.

    Second draft will include martial arts (Immaculate styles plus seven others practised by various Dragon-Blooded groups) and a new batch of Charms, plus some errata based on feedback I have been gathering.

    It's going to be a while yet though, I'm busy doing other stuff at the moment....

    replied to Dragonblooded officer corps
    The actual numbers of Dragon-Bloods vary with the telling. I have always assumed 10-15 thousand Dragon-Bloods of the Blessed Isle (including the Scarlet Dynasty and assorted others), one thousand in Lookshy and many other Outcaste groups ranging from individuals and small families to a few hundred....

    Will there ever be a martial arts style that uses Wind-Fire Wheels? The poor things have been without a style since 1e, and it's even worse in Ex3 now you can't use martial arts weapons unless you know a style that utilises them.

    Are there any martial arts styles that you know you won't adapt to Ex3, and if so why?...

  • I could have sworn there was a sidebar in the Ex3 core on the legion structure that said there was at least eleven and possibly as many as forty Dragon-Bloods attached to a given legion, but now I can't find it....

  • According to an Ex3 sidebar on the subject, the maximum number of Dragon-Blooded officers in a legion is around forty when they are preparing to fight Anathema. Immaculate monks would always be outside the structure of the legion.

    An Anathema threat on the level of the Bull of the North threatening key satrapies might be enough to attract such a force. Being outside the management of the Great Houses, the Vermillion Legion is the only one that is likely to be sent in response in the current political climate of preparing for civil war. Perhaps they attracted volunteers to face a major...

    I'd probably call an ammunition check if a character had clearly expended a load of arrows (defeated a battle group, say), but it has never come up. We usually don't worry about it....
