    Do you feel they'd be reasonable to use for, say, a home-brewed 60 foot behemoth?


    Also, how does Legendary Size interact with sorcerous attacks? If a sorcerer casts Death Ray/Death of Obsidian Butterflies/etc, are they still limited to their Strength+3 damage?...

  • I suspect this is intentional.


    I think you made a mistake here and repeated yourself. After the first one, you should be at close range....

  • Yeah, that was my first thought too.
    I don't think I couldn't have the Ally though. That accent is awful. Even I could do a better cockney accent....

    Although I guess that does mean Snake has used his disengage move, so then on Butch's turn he can move up next to Snake again and attack him? Which he wouldn't have been able to do if he hadn't Rushed (because if he moved, Snake would get his disengage move).

  • Your Arms of the Chosen character concepts

    It's nice to have a cool new weapon for your character to unlock.

    But are there any items in Arms of the Chosen you see and it gives you a whole idea for a character who'd use it? Post your ideas here! What inspires you?


    For example, Sozen, the Cataphract of Keys, made me think of some kind of super-hero (or super-villain)-esque character, who seems like a mild-mannered member of the circle by day, but who dons the armour at night to take a new identity as a mysterious thief.

    Or Heartsong, for which the obvious one is of course a Chosen of Venus whose...

    Fair enough. And me an English teacher no less! I'm ashamed.

    This seems like clarity is needed about Rushing (which has come up before, with Tiger Style, which has some similar effects), rather than about Arms of the Chosen. Might be worth putting on a different thread.

    Anyhow, on p.116 it says "the inaccessible montane workshop of the god
    Vanileth". I assume that should be mountain.

  • Yeah, I think with less characters it's a bit easier. I found running the game quite hard with that many high-XP PCs and no rules for anything else high-XP except Solars.

    That's why I'm so glad to finally get another book!

    My friend asked me to ask, is it correct that Eyes of the Unconquered Sun can turn off Lunar shapeshifting? What if it is used on a Lunar in totem form, would they stay in totem form or become human?
    And will Lunars get any way to defend against this?

  • Indeed! My friend is taking the game over, and since the players will be facing a Realm invasion, I can imagine we'll see DBs in jade warstriders.
    I might play a character with a warstrider just so we can have titanic battles.

    Saying this, one of the PCs has Death Ray, which could be devastating against Warstriders. On the other hand, their ability to move 3 range bands a turn will make it far less dangerous to them than it is to armies.

    I suspect having the DB book will make a lot more difference than Arms, but I think Arms will help.

    As I was saying...

  • They told us sorcery would no longer be required. They lied! Magic always has a price. And it seems that price is an arm.

  • I wish my PCs were low enough XP that I could get away with that. I did have some luck with mortal sorcerers, mortal heroes, and demons, but I got tired of my 350xp PCs just chopping their way through everything and intimidating everyone into doing what they wanted. At that level, even DBs aren't that significant.

    Page 111, the first charm of Unison starts with "Unity and its wearer act as one", whereas it should presumably be "Unison and its wearer act as one."

    Also, Page 110, under Argent Handshake Mien, again it refers to "Unity" rather than "Unison."

    I've found the evocations to not be an issue. Because the true power of weapons is only revealed by XP, in my experience few players wanted to suddenly start spending tons of XP on something that wasn't really part of their character idea.

    The PCs in my game picked up a number of unique artefact weapons, but once everyone's got one if they want one (which 5 out of 7 did), the rest just got put in their manse.

    If you are worried about power level, just make them all level 3.

    But my real question is... why does that artificier have a small blue monkey? Is the monkey dead? Is he just hanging out? Is he so fed up of these damn arguing exalts? Because that's his expression.

    On a wider note, I like the way that, although the art no longer looks manga-style, they have given quite a lot of it an east-Asian feel, which makes it feel a bit more appropriate for Exalted's thematic base, a bit less euro-fantasy. Lots of lamellar-style armour, Chinese-style clothes. Even a Samurai-style set of armour.

    Also, a lot of the art looks a similar style (I think...

    Annoyingly, I have to go to work now so don't have the time to look through it properly. But the art seems good.

  • Yeah, I think that's the sort of thing that can be brought across their charmset without feeling like you've got 10-15 thematically distinct power sets rammed into one character....

  • Yeah, Alucard is right. The sorcerer in my game made Dragons, and their breath weapon counted as a heavy ranged non-magical attack with the Flame quality. I think that's just Terrestrial 2 level, max. It's just the same as a firewand, after all.

    If the breath weapon was much better than a regular weapon, it might be Celestial.
