  • Isn't this basically the same role that Half-Caste(though I understand that terminology is going away) offspring served in previous editions? With the Breed True trait, they can compensate with quantity over quality(as weird as it is saying that about hypothetical people). Hell, Dreams of the First Age mentioned the Solars founding dynasties of golden-children in Meru.

    If an Abyssal were to accidentally make a Liminal out of the corpse(ses) of an Oblivion/Neverborn cultist, how conflicted would the new Liminal be regarding their current "duties" and the beliefs of the previous owners of their meat body?

    Additionally, would a Liminal's need to acquire body parts for various charms be mechanically represented the same way Alchemical Charm Slots and the need for a Sodality-operated vat complex were?

    And in 1e's Games of Divinity, they're described as thinking the original elementals that appeared post-Primordial War were too weak and stupid to do anything meaningful, making the fact that they speak up for the Lesser Elemental Dragons but apparently don't even take notice of the DBs really jarring. All the other exalts have patrons who interacted with them on some level post-Primordial War, but the DBs come off as being beneath the notice of their own progenitors (which contributed to the "DB = Cosmic Loser" theme that was everywhere in 2e)...

    The thing is, RoTSE describes the Ebon Dragon whacking Pasiap as if he was stepping on an ant. As for Gaia, the deities in Yu-Shan are described a being utterly terrified at the prospect of Gaia's full return, which makes sense given that the moment Oramus and Cythera popped out Luna(i.e. Explicitly Insane Shapeshifting God-Devil Monster), she fell in love with her. Autocthon is the Primordial with the smallest soul pantheon. Gaia provided the very bedrock of Creation and snapped the primordials out of their Zen-Mu depression funk....

    The Incarnae, specifically Sol Invictus, would be capable of posing a significant threat to the yozis were it not for the primordial geas. Theion explicitly wanted something that could threaten the other Primordials. Up until RoTSE, The Elemental Dragons were merely one step down from the Incarnae and in 2e are subsouls of Gaia(who's noted to be terrifyingly strong for Primordial) meaning they should lack the inherent geas preventing them from attacking primordials....

    Depending on the make(and there are different auzhian makes shown in the illustrations), they'd either be chopping swords with an extra disarming tag or hook swords with the chopping or balanced tag

    replied to Playing New Gods
    New gods as an extension of a heroic mortal game appeals to me, though it may run into problems where godhood is a "2e Shintai/Devil Tiger equivalent" that makes starting play seem like an extended slog to get where you actually want to be. The Celestial Bureaucracy is in tatters, newly ascended gods probably aren't going to get welcoming parties so there's still an element of unexpectedness as the players work to seize or build a purview for themselves. It'd probably be like a Solar game on "hard mode", since newbie gods are going to crumple under Immaculate DBs.

    Either way, the Lintha should have access to resources that provide safer castration methods that don't involve genital mutilation or invasive human spaying. Chemical castration is a thing that's been done IRL, most infamously on Alan Turing....

    replied to [3E] Building a Lintha Character
    Well, there is the Sterile flaw in Core regarding Lintha castration. The Tya apparently take special shellfish toxin to render themselves infertile, I don't see why the Lintha can't do that instead of needlessly primitive caveman surgeries.

    As for 3e Lintha, they're still supposed to be snooty piratical Melniboneans. I'm torn on whether or not they should still be as idiotic regarding their breeding programs. One man's "pure lintha blood" is another's "inbred sea yokel" after all, and I feel that trying to prove their xenophobia right by giving them a functioning...

    IIRC, Cemunian was the primordial who created the Pseudo-Creation of Cajerron and sent it against Creation during the early-mid First Age. Its been ambiguous whether or not the primordial escaped the initial imprisonment at the end of the Primordial War or emerged spontaneously from the wyld after the Yozis were imprisoned.

    replied to [2.5] Wun Ja and the Syndics
    I mean, she could threaten for bribes, but they'd largely be empty threats(since she ultimately wants the Syndics to succeed). The Syndics are pretty high ranking gods, and they've got plenty of bureaucratic defenses protecting them from audits. They managed to get Chejak and Her Redness to back down, Wun Ja's position is shaky enough as it is without her trying to make powerful enemies.

    Its been a bit vague, but its been described as something that benefits all celestial gods, even if UCS is just redistributing the extra allocated prayers.

    I often wonder what Immaculate missionaries are like. Probably well received in areas where the local deities are abusive but less so in other places. Taken as an objective whole, the Immaculate Faith lacks broad spectrum appeal outside of a society already indoctrinated to believe in its precepts(like the Realm and its more servile satrapies). I suspect the Immaculates omit of theology a lot depending on where they're doing missionary work, only to enforce the scriptures more strictly once the populace is cowed by an imperial garrison. The promise of DB privilege in the next life(false though...

    replied to [2.5] Wun Ja and the Syndics
    When Whitewall was built, UCS was named the city father, even in the Age of Sorrows, Wun Ja would still be a bit antsy about claiming UCS's property for herself. The Syndics explicitly deny being Whitewall's city fathers, so they're technically not butting in on Wun Ja's jurisdiction, as the proper city father, Sol Invictus, is in fact being worshiped. Granted, thee Syndics engaging in highly illegal activities by directly ruling a mortal city, but Wun Ja is an advocate of gods ruling cities. Furthermore, they're working to repair Whitewall, which enhances her portfolio and amplifies the amount...

    I kinda like it being one of the few things related to the Abyss that isn't wholly destructive. I mean, sure the Dowager used it for destruction, but its not bound by that limitation

    I suppose the question is: Do the Dragons actually care about the Dragon-Blooded and are the DB's truly "Chosen" or just a bunch of lucky inbred demigods. I realize the potential for terrestrial exaltation lies in Dragon-Blooded heritage, but do the Dragons actually have any effect on whether or not one of those with the dragon's heritage exalts. Past editions had nearly every other Exalt type looking down on them for receiving exaltation by "mere accident of birth."

    My biggest problem is that thee Elemental Dragons display no personality outside the traits the Immaculates ascribe to them, which makes their inclusion in the setting seem superfluous. Aside from like three sentences in Compass: Yu-Shan, they exhibit no action outside of their task of shepherding Creation's essence, which makes their participation in the Divine Revolution seem either like their programming concluded the Primordials had to go(like some kind of dystopian computer) or Gaia actually had to give them directions to join the conflict.

    We know what Sol Invictus is, he is...
