    Pretty sure that the whatever-year daiklave terminology got ditched as Real Game Terminology That Means Something, but it's still in the corebook. Don't spend too much time thinking about those terms, and if you have to explain away their presence in the corebook, just think of it as a poetic thing.

    But most importantly, don't think about it. It's not useful terminology, it isn't really important.

  • This thread never ceases to amaze.

    I've thought about picking up the Modiphius Conan books to draw on them for inspiration for things and places in Exalted too, since the people working on it are apparently Conan enthusiasts, it could be a useful resource!

    Mobility Penalties apply to all actions underwater too. Just so you know!

    replied to A Closer Look: Solars vs Dragonblooded
    I recall some developer advice to the effect of treating the actual initiation of combat as a new scene for the purposes of charms and aura to get around pre-fight simple charm chicanery, unless it really strongly makes sense to treat it like the same scene.

    In this case, it’s that they consider it desirable that Dragon-Blooded generally can’t and won’t start the first round of combat already in aura.

    It’s easy to read that in a negative way, but I prefer a positive framing. It means you don’t have to worry about having the right charm that you can actually...

    This conversation seems a little difficult to have around what will actually happen with the game when not everyone is aware of how these things work differently in third edition, honestly....

    replied to Non-Human Races?
    This is no longer true. Third Edition Dragon-Blooded character generation does not have required stats of any kind save for the fact that you have to have one dot in your Favored Abilities, which is true of every group which possesses Favored Abilities....

    replied to How do you design a story?
    That is a good thing to keep in mind! It's also not that you couldn't do that in a game at all, it's just that the understanding that it could or will happen needs to be something communicated with everyone at the table.

    Like an example I can think of where that kind of thing could be a fun thing is if the players maybe feel things have gotten a little stale, or that they want a new direction in the game because both they and the ST are unhappy with how its turned out, and decide to use something like that as an inciting event or soft reboot of things to push the campaign in a new...

    Is Carnelian Phoenix from Arms of the Chosen supposed to be medium artifact armor for a mount or heavy artifact armor?

    Do the Walker in Darkness and the Black Heron still have their history of antagonism from the Shadowland thing, given proposed changes to both of them? Or does it take a different form than it did before?

    Does the organization called the Wyld Hunt still exist, or are Wyld Hunts just a thing that Dragon-Blooded do now?

  • I'm pretty sure it's going to be artifact heavy armor with a different flavoring of evocations.

    I'd expect the same of any other bit of powered armor.

    It's not better. It's different.

    Yes. It won't be for awhile though, because there are a lot more of them....

  • I think that's very likely to happen! There's also some things where it doesn't actually require too much adding. Half of the stuff that could make Raksi interesting in third edition is already there in the first edition. Lilith's whole concept is there basically. Ma-Ha-Suchi is an odd one where I'm not sure how to "overhaul him" or if you need to, since the corebook already gives a decent sense of his deal. Hearing about it from the perspective of his would-be Lunar charges or allies would be awesome though!

  • Posting quickly to encourage Kickstarter backers to go read the new spells, they’re really really good!

    There are some great mechanical lessons for me in the spells that were converted that I had converted as well. I’ll be removing my versions of Impervious Sphere of Water and Virtuous Guardian of Flame from this document for now.

    There’s a lot of really intriguing new mechanical and conceptual precedents for Terrestrial Circle Sorcery that I’ll be trying to incorporate into my own designs here. So stay tuned for some rewrites!

    As always, thank you...

  • Thank you for your kind words, guys! I’ll make those edits as soon as I’m back home from getting my lunch.

    I did not intend for Hardness to apply as protection against Assassin’s Fatal Touch, but I’ve been considering and reconsidering that spell’s damage model for awhile, so I welcome opinions on whether it should apply or not!

    Something fun, Vance has mentioned that Impervious Sphere of Water and Virtuous Guardian of Flame are actually in What Fire Has Wrought, so after Tuesday I’ll likely be removing my versions of those spells from my homebrew. Very excited...
