    Can wyld pockets inside Creation proper lead to Pure Chaos ? I mean, I have been reading that under Creation is the Wyld and that Creation is thin and so on, so I was therefore wondering if such a Wyld pocket could lead to pure chaos even if said pocket is surrounded by Creation on all sides.

    In advance, thank you very much if you take the time to answer this !

    Thanks again to everyone above.

    I was googling for Lookshyan calendar and timeline and timelines for lands outside the Realm, and did not find any other to that of the Realm (maybe it is my google fu that is bad). Now, I have almost all first and second edition books, but most of those are in crates at my mothers place collecting dust, so they are not really available for me now to search through. I was therefore wondering if anyone knows of parallel timelines for the other major powers, such as the Confederacy of Rivers and therefore Lookshy, or if such material has not been published...

    If a circle with 5 solars and 1 lunar, popped up (yes, we have now had our first session ! ) in one of the dominions subjected to Greyfalls, is it at all realistic that the Cynis Satrap would go after them? Right now, I have her panicking and turtling with all she got in Greyfalls proper (not that my players knows that mind you), preparing to use the War Manse in extremis, withdrawing all axillary forces to Greyfalls to defend in case they...do something.This of course means that the Golden Road is more or less blocked for House Cynis now.
    Is it at all realistic that other houses would...

    I don't think there are 100% clear lines always in Exalted. I just associated those Craft specialties more with other abilities, such as medicine (because medicine surely involves surgery and more advanced surgery). I think, sometimes a GMs, we just have to use common sense, for lack of better word. I am not saying you are wrong, I am just saying that personally, as a GM, I would associate for instance Genetic Alteration and artifical organs with Medicine and not Craft, so for me, those very specialised specialties would be medicine in my games. But if you are a GM, then you may rule otherwise...

    This is something essential that I had missed completely. That you got more fields of study that is. I have completely missed that in the Core, and decided myself, that a character with Lore 5 ought to have more without knowing that it actually was in the book. Again, thanks ! Makes a lot of sense....

    You make sense. Thank you for your opinion, Kelly Pedersen (and The Wizard of Oz). I will use your advice as I thought it was quite good. And yeah, I will let him choose 2-5 more fields of study for his Lore, since is Lore 5. I was leaning towards that before I asked anyway

    Are you not venturing into the realms of Medicine with those craft specialties of yours ? A prosthetic would surely be Craft, sure, but an organ? I find that many of your specialities smell a bit like Magi-tech, which is no longer a thing in 3ed as far as I understand. Note, this is just my impression, I am not saying you are wrong with your specialities, I just would never use most of them in my own game as a GM in 3ed, and agree with TheCountAlucard that you are venturing into the territory of Sorcerous Workings with some of those specialties (as well as Medicine as previously stated).

    Just realised after our first session in my new campaign, that I, as a GM, am not 100% sure how Lore works, in that I am not sure if a field of specialty counts as a specialization or not. The Core seems a bit unclear on this (or I may be blind, sometimes I miss things, despite having read the Core many times previously). For instance, one of my players have made a Twilight, and he started with lore 5. He chose the Wyld as his field of study, and I told him that it doesn't count as a specialty, and that a speciality was more Lore:The Wyld (the raksha) or something like that. But I am open to changing...

    replied to The Civil War Thread
    My reading of the setting in third edition so far, and maybe this is slightly controversial, is that if the Houses tear themselves apart in civil war, the Lunars will shift from guerilla warfare to conventional warfare and probably win control of most of the Threshold, unless some Dynast gains control of the Realm Defense Grid etc. I can also see long term Solar conquest of the Blessed Isle, especially if they have Lunar allies, depending on how severe the damage is from the civil war. It all depends on how brutal and damaging the civil war will be really, I reckon. In short, if there is a brutal...

    Are you planning on releasing one tome of the Hundred Devil's Night Parade (and Adversaries of the Righteous) and then just continue working on it as a side project to release a part two, or will you wait until you have more NPC's, and then release a single book ? I have only bought one of the PDF's so far, one which I felt I needed for my game, since I personally find the PDF's very expensive if you add the cost of all of them (so far the price of them all, Hundred Devils Night Parade only, is 49,75 dollars, which I personally find very expensive for a mere electronic product which isn't even...

    Those of you who have followed Onyx Path products throughout the years, do you have any approximate guess as to how long it will be before I can order the physical copy of this wonderful book ? I really have no clue as to how long this pre-release process usually takes. Like many Game Masters, I do loath having to read PDF's (although this book is not the worst having as a PDF, since it does not contain mechanics), and I am very much looking forward to be able to buy the real book so I can bring this beauty to my table

    replied to Thought about Arms of the Chosen
    I am some what perplexed that many here thinks that Arms of the Chosen did a fair job of helping me as a Game Master to create artifacts and evocations.

    I am usually not viewed as an idiot despite not being good at rpg-mechanics intuitively, and while I respect what Vance said above about the 11th hour and understand all of that as very good and very valid reasons for being so lacking in that aspect, the book absolutely does not help me much at all personally with creating artifact powers and evocations, as well as balancing the lv of them. It gives a collection of nice artifacts...

    Thanks a lot for your answers, Vance ! I might go with an N/A manse because I like the idea of the War Manse having been able to protect a small area around Greyfalls proper, from stuff like Raksha etc. So I might tone down my original idea while still keeping the manse relatively powerful within maybe something like 50km range or so (but also very stationary). Again, thanks !

    I had some questions on page 109, that Mr. Minton either did not see, or choose not to answer, I don't know. I would hardly mind if Mr. Vance answered them either, I am just hopeful of some sort of answer given that I will run our first session the coming weekend, and I have spent more quite some hours so far building my setting. Note that I am not, of course, asking if "this is how a manse works", of course it is not, those rules have yet to be written. I am just asking if it is miles away from what makes sense to you as developers, as I am trying to get my new campaign to be as close...

    Yeah, well I am new to the forum. I have read it now and then a few times over the years, and also made an account last year, but I only now started to post so, I don't know anyone really. But so far I have read many interesting posts from interesting people, no doubt about that !...

    You make good points there, Blaque. Of course, we are both speculating on motives, but your points seem logical enough.

    The Scarlet Empress is lacking legions for the moment
    I think I read a text box (don't remember the page) in the Realm as to how the Empress personally ordered the Tepet legions hindered (although I got to admit that I thought it strange that she would do so in a crusade against Anathema, as I had assumed war against Anathemas was outside politics for her like that)....

    Eric Minton , if you have the time, could you please take a look at my questions to you on page 109 in this thread ? It would be much appreciated, as want my campaign to be pretty close to the canon that you and Mr. Vance are creating for us.

    replied to My reaction to Lilith
    My bad, Sorry. I wasn't really aware. Guess I googled Lillith and then the forum came up and I forgot that it was an old thread (one of my players are playing a character which will be Adamani's recent exaltation in my story). Anyway, the context was that the guy I wrote to basically argued that Dragon Blooded and the world in general, should have a better recollection of the Realm Before than what they seemingly had in written canon, and having studied history, I just chimed in and said why I thought that made little sense, since supernatural creatures were actively working against the "memory"...
