  • In an honour-based culture, hurting someone's family members could insult their valour. But I agree, it's probably the least likely.

    Doing whatever it takes to rescue a loved one seems like a Conviction-based limit break.

    Seems fine conceptually. In my experience though, Lunar PCs never take familiars, because they can do all the same stuff themselves. Maybe 3rd ed will change that, as I believe there will be some Familiar charms....

    On sniping: There are charms that add damage when aiming. That, plus a big JB, should be able to seriously injure or kill even a lot of non-trivial opponents. Tough Exalts are just going to be wounded; but then, the game is designed so your PC doesn't easily get murdered with no build-up walking down the street, and that's probably a good thing.

    If you're really keen, as has been said, Stalking Wolf Attitude. Just be aware it gets expensive. But you are putting everything into your alpha strike.

    Can they sink through floors? (I assume they don't by default, but can they choose to)?

    No, nothing like that.

    I only skimmed TAW once, so I'm not familiar with these charms. Would they work on bureaucracy projects instead? Or the intimacies of the society?

    I assume they're not war-based command charms.

    It is only 3 paragraphs though, and "the most remote, and least enforced redoubt" doesn't sound like it'd have much effect on the society anyway.

    I wonder if it will still have a link with Lookshy, or not.

    That's fair enough! Thanks for sharing with us.

    Cool, nice and classic.

    Any particularly cool powers you took/used?

    What did you think of your anima powers?

    What was your favourite thing?

    Did combat as Lunars feel substantially different from combat as Solars?

    Are you planning to do more Lunar previews? You did, IIRC, 3 Dragonblood previews, a couple of Realm previews, and a Dragonblood NPC in Antagonists of the Righteous.

    So far, there's been 3 Lunar previews and a Lunar NPC in Antagonists of the Righteous, so I wondered if you feel you've done enough. I of course, would be delighted if you do more!...

    Oh, I see.

    TBH, it seems pretty OP compared to the charms that do similar things.

    Well, the Solar ride charm does a week in a day. So that's 7x.

    Not to say you can't go faster. Stormwind Rider goes at 100 mph. But... It's a giant whirlwind. Not stealthy, not much good for urban environments or dense forest. Travel Without Distance is instant, but only affects you, has a set range, and makes you tired.

    This blesser would be quite subtle (it's not picking them up and flying them) so I'd say 10x seems very powerful. It'd maybe be okay if it was only on very long journeys, like you can travel a year's distance in a month and a half. And it's a limited...

    10 times as fast in what way? Overland travel? Range bands? Range bands would be totally busted. Overland travel is more viable, but that's better than most (not all) Solar charms for overland travel, so would need some kind of restriction.

  • Yeah, I agree.

    There's been no official announcement, but I'm expecting the full pdf in early 2019. I imagine the the deluxe hardcover would be less than 9 months after that, but I imagine they want to be sure.

    That was what I was assuming. One imagines that those Dragonblood who live in Heaven do work in the Celestial Bureaucracy, but there's no reason to think they'd be part of the Bureau of Destiny in particular.

    Why this edition more than ever? I've no particular objection, but I didn't get the impression Sidereals were significantly less invested in dealing with Solars/Lunars than previous editions. Unless you mean because of Rakan Thulio and his Getimians?


    That seems likely to me.


    IIRC, in previous editions the Sidereals who destroyed Fallen...

    Well, inviting each other to parties isn't quite the same as them being the Sidereal's servants (which I agree, would be quite dull), but I see your point.

    Though, as I said at the end (because it only occurred to me near the end), maybe the fact that Heaven's Dragons can never remember what any individual Sidereal looks like precludes close relations. Though that somewhat depends on the nature of Arcane Fate this edition (in 2nd ed, certain divine employees were immune to it, but I forget how extensive that was).


    Hmmm, I'd say there probably was, though it might...

    On the one hand, it's maybe a little boring if it's just "the Lunars who live around the Cinder Coast." On the other hand, if they're all about philosophy and methodology, you end up with 2nd ed's factions, which were a bit nonsensical.

    In theory, the Lunars are only against what they see as the heirs to the Shogunate; the Realm being most obvious. Presumably also Lookshy, Cherak, Prasad, etc.

    But in reality, I suspect they're pretty suspicious of any Dragonblood. And for Dragonblood living in Yu-Shan... well I can't really see them being like "Ugh, I hate the Sidereals who helped the Dragonblood take over Creation. Despite the fact they're pretty much the only other group of Exalts in Heaven, live down the street, and love Dragonblood, we're certainly never hanging out with them!"

    No, I suspect...
