  • It's got a reasonable amount on it, got from the Discord, and a couple of livestreamed games that the writers did.

  • Incidentally, the game I run is precisely this question:
    The PCs started at the end of the second age, which collapsed into apocalypse, and now it's the Third Age of the World of Darkness; it's the dawn of the Bronze Age. The Indo-Europeans of Iscomay are invading pre-Minoan Greece in the west and chalcelothic Persia in the east. Some of the PCs are fighting the Indo-Europeans, others have just gone to visit Cadmus and Bellarophon who want to overthrow Zeus (who kidnapped Cadmus's sister Europa, as well as various other naughty things), others are hanging out with the first ever pack of...

  • I kind of liked it, but not as much as Gunstar Autocthonia.

  • I'd have them roll Sail because they're fighting ships in a naval battle, so understanding ships helps. Also I feel it's genre-appropriate for a naval Lunar to combine sailing knowledge with being able to turn into a kraken or whale or whatever and mess up some ships.

    But it's not at all unreasonable to have them roll Athletics instead. I can definitely see the argument for that too.

  • Nice! The caste mark is a very nice touch.

  • It was the Usurpation that created the Gold and Bronze Faction; but the Gold were subourned, isolated, or killed. Centuries later, the reincarnation of their leader refounded the gold faction, but with hardly any Solars around it was a tiny group who did little beyond saying "I told you so". Then, suddenly 5 years ago the Gold Faction actually became viable again, and a number of Sidereals recently joined. It's still very much a minority though.

    Also, seems a very Sidereal kind of plan.

    The Fulope (1CD)has a charm for possessing people. Which is a kind of mind control.

    Dynastic outcastes I assume refers to Outcastes in the Realm, not all over the world.

    Though tbh a lot probably are from Satrapies and were recruited into the Realm. Others were just born there because, well, frankly, a lot of Dragonblood get around....

    When that coup against Erdogan happened a couple of years ago, a lot of the soldiers involved in the coup had no idea they were rebels; they thought they were taking down rebels. They were just following the orders of their commanders.

    Also, on Ghosthead's point about security, I can well imagine that a smaller number of DBs attack the Solars, and then a war breaks out across the world. Solars are going crazy, Dragonblood who've been irritated with the Solars for a while go "well, the Solars killed my cousin, and they're raving about murdering all Dragonblood, I'm joining the...

  • You use your normal dice pool of Wits+Sail (I think that's what you roll for Naval Maneuvers) with free excellency dice to take you up to the Kraken's dice pool, but obviously capped in the normal way.
    Same as other animals.

    10,000 Dragons conquer the world.

    30, 40, 50k Dragonblood? They outnumbered the Solars more than a hundredfold. Yes, Solars are more powerful than Dragonblood, but they're certainly not 100 times as powerful....

    Did anyone catch whether attacks still involved seperate attack and damage rolls? Weapons seem to have an accuracy and damage, but that may not all be rolled....

    Hmmm, I think it'd make more sense to defend yourself against Ranged attacks using Awareness, tbh.

    Dodging could be represented by Physique I guess. I would personally use Awareness though. Can't dodge if you don't know you're being attacked. Also, Awareness in ExEss doesn't have its prime combat use ie Initiative.

    An interesting point; apparently, as Excellencies are applied in Step 1, they don't apply to defence (Step 2). So you need to buy Defensive charms for that, you can't boost your defence with the excellency.

    Just be careful combining them because you can only attack with one at a time and parry with one at a time. You may end up with identical ratings of course, but you can't combine the charms, or use Melee charms with the extra attack from Single Point's form.

    It is a strong combo though, as you can use Single Point for attack and Melee for defence. Otherwise you'd probably want Dodge or Resistance for defence anyway.

    This isn't quite the same with the games I've played. Most Solars do have a combat ability at 5, but not artefact equipment.

    Still, it raises a good point. Charade, what is your group like? Is everyone going to be built for combat and kitted out with artefacts, or do you think not really?...
