    replied to Nishkriya down and probably staying down
    I know nothing about coding, so I'm speaking from a place of ignorance, but is it possible that Ask the Devs has just grown larger than the forum software is equipped to deal with? I know Giant in the Playground's forums, which are also on a version of vBulletin, close all threads after 50 pages, and Ask the Devs is already more than 18x that length.

    Palym is referred to as "Burning Path" on page 49, "Keahi ignored him to answer Burning Path’s question."

    Speculatively, if a find-and-replace was used on an earlier draft to change her name from "Blazing Path," as it was in the short story in Tales From The Age of Sorrows, to "Palym," "Burning Path" would've been missed.

    A few of the stories are (or were when they were initially released to backers) egregiously incongruent with the established setting. Notably, in one a Dragon-Blood Exalts Solar on top of her existing Exaltation, and another portrays a First Age sorcerous academy in very D&D-esque terms.

    I will say, some edits were made to try to address those issues after the initial release of Tales; for instance, the First Age story was moved to the back of a book, and an "Archivist's Note" was added to explain that it's a legend that's been distorted by time. I'm not sure if they...

    replied to [Dev Blog] The Lunar Exalted
    What surprises me is that it's explicitly identified as "Old Realm for 'guide' or 'teacher,'" which wouldn't seem to make it an inherently Lunar title. Unless there's an implicit "of Lunars" in the word that would be understood to native Old Realm speakers, I would expect Sidereals and Gods, and possibly other groups as well, to also use the title shahan-ya.

    I guess this could even be the start of a gradual retcon, phasing out the real-world title "sifu" in favor of an Exalted-specific term, analogous to the use of "daiklave"? But I expect ...

    Circle of Protection Discussion Thread

    Well, we have a general thread about expectations for an Exalted novel, but it seems it's time to have a thread for actual discussion of our new non-hypothetical Exalted novel, doesn't it?

    I've read the first eight chapters so far. I'm not going to request that this thread avoid spoilers entirely, but I'm going to be circumspect at least in this first post, and I recommend use of the spoiler tags if anyone would like to get more specific. It's best to be courteous, especially given how very new the book is at this writing.

    If you recall Forbeck's story back in the Tales...
