  • Measure of Hope
    replied to Tell me about your Lunar mates
    Okay, I'm going to try to be less wordy about the other Lunar mates.

    Mary and Fox were dating before either of them exalted. Fox was a Nexan P.I. and a mortal sorcerer. He got blasted off a roof by an air aspect while pursuing some perps, and exalted as an Abyssal as he hit the ground. Mary was a nurse at a major metropolitan hospital in Nexus. Some time after Fox exalted, Mary's hospital was attacked by a deathknight of the Mask of Winters, who tore through the hospital like a whirlwind, raising zombies she went, before being killed by an unknown assailant on the fifth floor. Mary...

  • Thanks, glad you like it

    I'd say there'd be a fair bit of drift in everyday language, but at the same time they have texts preserved from before their isolation that have been constantly taught and studied by scholars, so there would be people capable of understanding the original language pretty fluently.

    "Funky colour palette" was the first idea I had for the setting after deciding to put it underground, and it made sense for the two elements to be related. The sanctuary was always going to need some kind of artifical light in order for plants to grow...

  • I love the added detail, keep 'em coming as long as you feel inspired

    Did you have any feedback or thoughts on the White Elephant I did for you?

    replied to Tell me about your Lunar mates
    Each of the PCs in my game have now met their Lunar bondmate, with wildly varying results. For context, my game takes place in a modern version of Creation.

    The first Lunar mate to make an appearance was the Betahl's. The Dusk caste pit fighter and her circle were captured and held aboard a Wyld Hunt submarine. Among their interrogators was a mysterious man who helped them escape (seemingly only to keep them out of the Silver Prince's hands when he attacked the sub). They lost track of their saviour in the fight, but as they made their escape, they saw a vast black-and-white shape...

  • Just a note, when you quote a post, you can actually edit the text in the quote tags to only show the section you're referring to.

    The goal number is for a permanent fix, at least until the next time seismic activity screws up the manse's geomancy enough to cause another essence leak.

    I considered making Craft: First Age Artifice a requirement but given it's just repair work rather than an overhaul of all the manse's complex systems, I decided against. If the ST decides that expertise is warranted after all, it's a reasonable call. Fixing the manse isn't the only approach...

    I agree that there isn't a meaningful difference between the concept of a 'shard' as you've described it and the portrayal of Celestial exaltation in 3rd ed. As an aside, I'm not sure 'shard' was ever the official nomenclature so much as a fan term, but it's useful shorthand for referring to that particular portrayal of exaltation. I also dislike the language that has been used even in the current edition to suggest that mortal souls ain't shit, despite everyone who ever earned a Celestial exaltation having done so with just a mortal soul.

    The trouble is, if you get rid of the 'shard'...

    I don't think 3rd ed was ever going to dial back on the past lives thing, it is integral to the Solar/Lunar dynamic after all. The devs are just shifting away from the portrayal of Celestial exaltations as autonomous, virtue-seeking power-ups and making their nature more numinous and mystical. But they still do all the same things 2nd ed exaltations did, complete with adding a bunch of past lives onto your personal history.

    I'm afraid I need some clarification on some of the distinctions you're drawing.

    I'm having trouble seeing the difference between this:

  • I love these! Sorry it took so long to reply. I was still working on my White Elephant and didn't want to peek until I was done.

    I like that they're both setting-agnostic and could conceivably be anywhere in the Threshold (or even the Blessed Isle if you're willing to countenance multiple anathema establishing themselves there long-term).

    I have some questions about the Five Secret Colours if that's okay. Have the colours been consistent throughout their history? It sounds like each assassin's colour is a personal choice, so is it a case of "pick one that isn't...

  • People and Places
    The sanctuary is a roughly circular cavern about ten miles across. It supports a human population of about 9000 people, mostly clustered around the edges of the cavern or in the shadow of the Winding Spires.

    On the north-western edge of the cavern is the largest settlement in the sanctuary, the town of Lota Mina. The oldest parts of the town are cut into the cavern walls, but most of the population lives on the slope leading to the valley floor. The town is surrounded by orchards on the slopes and crop land on the valley floor. Lota Mina takes its name...

  • The Sanctuary of Lota Pel - White Elephant for Sorcerous Overlord

    My apologies for the lateness. Here is my belated White Elephant for Sorcerous Overlord, who requested:

    "A strange and otherwordly location for my players to fall into that will make them feel like they aren't in Kansas anymore"

    I decided to take “fall into” literally and place the location underground.

    The Sanctuary of Lota Pel
    Pale, wintry sunlight falls over an unexpectedly lush landscape, bluish green bracken spilling down a slope between trees with pale purple leaves and white trunks. On the valley floor are neatly cultivated fields of...
