    replied to September Update: Check out the Devas!
    It might have been BECAUSE Kali is recognizable? I vaguely recall one of the devs saying that Annie X, the iconic Deva Scion, in 1e was a Scion of Kali, but in 2e isn't, because Kali is more-or-less the go-to Hindu goddess in Pop Culture. Let's shake it up a bit.

    And I remember seeing Neall answer the "Why isn't Kali in the Core?" question with "Well we gotta save SOMETHING for the Companion"

    Honestly I'm just guessing here....

    Huh, duly noted.

    I admit reading up on the Astras made me imagine a Deva Scion getting to borrow one to take on a rampaging titanspawn, and admitting to the rest of her band that she needs to aim carefully.

    Because if she misses or messes up, she COULD blow up the entire city.

    (In the scene I imagined, while the others react with appropriate shock, the Teotl Scion jokingly asks if she could take out Los Angeles. Her sense of humor can be hit-or-miss)...

    Also, a thing that amused me.

    I'm sure that ONE of these Pantheon Writeups will be nice enough to reveal that no, don't worry, you haven't been pronouncing like 80% of these names wrong.

    Edit: Also, I decided on a lark to glance at the Wikipedia page for the Deva's Astra. I figure it'd be a nice summary to kinda get an idea what they're like.

    So even if this isn't the MOST accurate, if it's anywhere near the ballpark... Holy SHIT.

    From what I understand there's many many years of real-world conflict that's led to a LOT of bad blood between the two cultures and myths of old.

    If not, it's be acceptable as an October update. The Deva preview is greatly appreciated....

    Both fitting the tone, AND acknowledging "Look there's like SIX different stories about where Ganesha came from"

    Edit: I also like the note in the Relic section that says "Look, the Deva have a HUGE amount of awe-inspiring superweapons"...

    Well there's an update, but it's about the Deva with no preview of the Storypath system.

    Neall, are there going to be TWO September updates?...

    You mentioned Fate. Have you looked at the Superhero ruleset, Venture City?

    What, like the Black Doom in the Shards of the Exalted Dream? Because that was actually a pretty cool and thematic Limit Track....

    ... So, um... Are you going to add the file to your post, or is this some kind of meta post like "Well shucks look it's a big load of nothing yeah it never came up how crazy is THAT?"

    That's the Capstone Evocation. It goes from "Sword on Fire" to "EVERYTHING ON FIRE"...

    Gee, I was going to suggest The Burning Knight, but that seems a bit mundane.

    I don't mind the design of The Burning Knight there, but I wonder if a lot of the "Huh, doesn't look very Warstriderish to me" might be partially because of the head. It looks just like Grey Fox's mask, from Metal Gear Solid.

    If I had Photoshop skills I might try replacing the head with something that looked more like a knight war helmet, and see if that helped at all.

    replied to Another Exalted Inspiration thread
    The anime Magi. Fun characters, a pretty damn nice setting for the Southwest Adventures, and with artifact weapons that I would love to use Evocations to emulate.

    I said it before and I'll say it again: if I can't make Morgiana from Magi as a Lunar, then Lunars are 0 for 3 editions.

    Edit: Mostly joking, to be clear

    replied to how was the usurpation successful?
    I believe that Oda Nobunaga died when one of his vassals was marching to meet him, and suddenly told his men out of the blue "The enemy is in that castle!"

    And his men attacked, not knowing Nobunaga was in the castle.

    I wager that sort of thing might have happened at some points during the Usurpation. Just give the orders to the masses, and they listen.

  • Well to be ABSOLUTELY fair... Not exactly.

    See, charm slots impose limits, as do Personal Mote Commitments. Both impose limits on how many Charms you can have.

    However: Charm slots without Personal Mote Commitments don't remove personal motes that you could use to spend on Charms....

  • Honestly, the best way to make it seem like a relationship is to frame it like a relationship. Have the two (or more, whatever, as long as everyone's consenting) just spend time together, enjoying one-another's company.

    Yes, there'll still be a bit of weirdness inherent given how inhuman one of the parties is, but to me, romance is in the little things and gestures. The two simply being together, maybe one surprises the other with a little gift, the two taking time out to go on a picnic... Honestly, IMO, the big grand romantic gestures are overblown. I find more romance in the little...

    replied to Zerg in Creation.
    Ah-hem.

    Primal Zerg are characterized in SC2 as being independent creatures that constantly fight and devour one-another to gain their strengths.

    Gaia isn't the being that the Zerg descend from.

    It'd be Zurvan, the 12th Soul of the All-Hungering Blossom.

    Now the Hive Mind Classic Zerg Swarm would probably be an attempt by an ambitious Infernal to fundamentally alter the Demon Zerg into a loyal army....
