    No problem. Yeah, the thing with Excel was that it requires people to have already puchased a copy of it. Not everyone has it, and Excel uses Visual Basic as the basis for it's macros along where Google Sheets uses java script as its base. So I'd basically be doubling my work by keeping both versions of the sheet up to date....

    I updated the instructions telling everyone that they need to download a copy of the sheet first. I also saved it to where the instructions are showing when you first enter the sheet.

    DArchon5 and shadowninja, did you download the sheet to your own google drive first? You need to make sure you save a copy of it to a place you have access to make changes. If you did that, then the custom menu DECCT Menu, Manage Character Menu, and Customization Menu should all load fine.

    If that's not the issue you're having, can I get some more details?

    You should just be able to open it at the top. I'll check out the issue for you and shadowninja later today when I get a chance...

    replied to Are there any plans for "Exalted Lite"
    I could see fans trying to take Scion's new Storypath system and doing up a light version of Exalted that way, but yeah, I think Saipjas is right. There's not been anything announced and I wouldn't expect it to be.

  • ‚ÄčCycloneJoker and Hark. Thanks for your input. The new version of the Character Creation tool is out now. It supports both experienced and newly exalted Solars and Dragon-Blooded.

    Okay so version 2.21 is complete now with the minor exception of any sorcerous merits that might be offered later in the chapter. Other than that, Demac's Character Creation Tool is ready for use in Dragon-Blooded campaign. Here's the link to the latest version. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1g_...td3pDbZpaOxx4o...

  • So in short, my answer is "Yes. In 2e, it fundamentally breaks the setting to allow any Terrestrial Exalt access to the Celestial Circle of Sorcery." The long answer is a version of "Who cares. Do what's right for your table.

    So if your premise is that it was possible to mass produce Dragon-Blooded CC sorcerers all along, but no one bothered to do it, then you are, in theory approaching your game from the default setting point and then introducing this new discovery into the setting. That means you don't need to worry about things like "why didn't the Realm...

  • People could probably request it as a stretch goal that gets put into the companion or ... when more splats get released, a really short release like how they're releasing the antagonists books a few a few pages at a time.

    The way I see it, the default playstyle for any game of Exalted is where the players are all playing the same sort of Exalted. Mixed circles sort of need their character creation rules set....

    replied to Ask the Devs
    So I have a couple of questions about the way the Dragon-Blooded keywords work with regards to upgrade charms. First, does using the upgrade charm negate all keywords from the base charm or only those that they expressly contradict? For example, Stone-Carving Fingers has the Balanced keyword, but Shaping Hand Style, which upgrades it, does not. Shaping Hands Style allows you to use any of the various elemental keywords with the charm but which one is used depends on what you're crafting. So if I was to use Shaping Hand Style to do some blacksmithing, I would be using the Fire aspect version...

  • Well Outcastes generally have the same rules as Dynasts with the exception that their background doesn't give them as many merits. I'm handling that with a different field. That being said, I went into the sheet and added a way to quickly modify the rules to handle the Experienced Starting rules. This is still technically in dev since we don't have all the Dragon-Blooded charms yet, but here's what I've got for the newest version of my character creation tool.

    So here's a preview of version 2.21. Basically the main things it's lacking right now is the information for Ox-bodies and charms that give excellency-style effects for abilities that won't be released until next week's manuscript.

  • Well since you need 60 XP to get to Essence 2 if you're starting out as a newly exalted Dragon-Blooded, you wouldn't be too far out of bounds to just assume that players of Experienced Dragon-Blooded start play with 60 XP that was previously spent and they only need 90 more XP to advance to Essence 3....

  • Does that include those splats whose default playstyle assumes extensive post exaltation training, like Dragon-Blooded and Sidereals, or do you normally go to the default playstyle for those?...

  • What sort of games do you prefer: Newly Exalted or Experienced?

    I'm asking this question to decide if I'm going to go through the trouble of adding in the option for experienced Solars and Fledgling Dragon-Blooded in my character creation tool. Technically, the tool can already handle custom character creation rules but I need to know how beneficial it would be to include a function that lets people easily switch between the default starting place presented in the books and the suggested alternate character creation rules in the books (Experienced for Solars and Newly Exalted for Dragon-Blooded). So how many people out there have never actually used the suggested...

    I'm working on getting my character creation tool updated for Dragon-Blooded. It's about 99% done. Unfortunately, the last 1% is actual code instead of updating some numbers on a database (they just had to go ahead and make the default starting essence for Dragon-Blooded 2 instead of 1, didn't they? ). Of course I won't be able to finish it this week because the rules for Dragon-Blooded Ox-Bodies haven't been released. However, I might release a preview if there's interest.
