  • Similarly "re-roll 6s" is literally just re-roll 6s, etc.


    I have a couple of questions about the social system, specifically about intimacies supporting social influence, which doesn't seem precisely explained (unless I can't find it).

    People often say you need "tag" a specific intimacy. Ie you need to say "I'm using his intimacy of I Love Dragonblood to persuade him to help", you can't just throw a social influence and hope they've got something applicable. Or even that you can literally only do this when you actually know their Intimacy...

    Yeah, there's a lot of thaumaturgy and occult charms that banish demons/ghosts that possess people... but this is actually an extremely rare thing for them to be able to do.

    When you've already got 6 types of Celestial, I think it makes sense for them to be at the top of Terrestrial rather than the bottom of Celestial.

    Tbh though, as Modes are always advantageous, I wonder if the Terrestrial keyword (as opposed to the DB keyword, Alchemical keyword, etc) will be pretty rare. Whereas I expect to see the Celestial keyword a lot.

    Where is Chalan, the seat of House Simendor? I know it's somewhere in the South, but the name does sound familiar, so I wonder if it's been more precisely located in some book.

    So we noticed that Lunars have a charm to resist being grappled by a Legendary Size creature, but no charm to grapple Legendary Size creatures (except, I guess, turning into a Legendary Size creature). Out of interest, was this deliberate because you didn't want them to be able to, or just word count?

    Tbh, I wouldn't be shocked if it becomes more common than the "normal" way, but I don't think it'll be, like, 80%. There are people who like crunchy systems.
    Also, due to having 10 Exalt types in one book (not to mention antagonists), I'm guessing they will be a bit more similar to each other than across the Splat Books, and there will be less options, less spells, less martial arts, less artefacts, etc.



    One key thing is that the writers of Essence can look at 3rd edition, see what works and people like, see what doesn't work so well and people aren't...

  • Broadly speaking, in my experience, there's 3 things going on: people want to play an aristocrat from a rich and powerful culture; people want to have family links with their enemy (one guy was the cousin of a member of the Wyld Hunt, another has a daughter who's a Dragonblood); and third, some people just really love the Dynastic background, so want a character from them (for example, one player really loved House Cathak, so she played a Zenith who'd grown up in House Cathak).

    Ironically, I don't think it's actually a bad concept, just overused.

    How so? (Have only skimmed DB archery so far)

    Air-swordsman seems much more viable than before. I don't know if that makes it good, of course. With a quick read it seems to be about aiming and attacking people in metal armour?...

  • I didn't ask about non-Egyptian Africa, because my game isn't set there.

    Essentially, I just want to know what Fera my PCs might meet in different places if they go on a spirit quest back in time to the War of Rage, in Eastern Europe, Greece, the Middle East and Egypt (but Eldagusto has described Egypt well). Who are the Garou going to be fighting?...

  • I'd also point out that there's a truly shocking amount of Dynastic Solars, so any DB fluff is Solar fluff... 😜

  • I guess you could do the Cult of the Illuminated? But I am kind of glad they haven't, because I think it should be much, much smaller than 1st ed.

    Also, Getimians are resonant with Starmetal. Alchemicals are resonant with the material of their caste.

    And while Essence has Resonant and... normal level, I guess, it doesn't bother with Dissonant.

    Ascendant Caste: Prophets, messiahs, and revolutionaries, these Infernals are chosen from those told that they are worthless, impure, or abominations. Chosen by the Demon Princes, they now see through these lies, and return to the world clothed in righteousness to depose wicked gods, reform unjust laws, and show Creation the magnificence and munificence of the Infernal Exalted.

    Technically that's an Exalted: Essence spoiler... but I guess really it's an Infernal spoiler.


    Oh, and sorcerous initiations are in for Essence.

  • There are a bunch of new archery charms, but I didn't read them closely. I'm sure someone else will go into them later.
