    The Essence devs did mention Embassy once, saying it could be a means of achieving political change within the Realm. Plus they have said that a lot was built from the perspective of the 5 Solar archetypes. So my guess is you are right on the money and those will be the 5 Attributes in Essence....

    The devs have mentionned that the power curve between exalts is greatly flattened in Essence. Solars remain the top dogs, but they dominate in subtle ways rather than beat up the other exalts and take their lunch money. A DB can win against a Solar if that's the way things go. That being said, a Solar can still take on an entire Wyld Hunt eventually.

    Today was spoiler heavy on the Discord. Here's what I got :

    general spoilers

    -Essence has a Virtue system. Virtues provide the umbrella under which Intimacies are defined. There are 7 Virtues. There are old Virtues and brand new ones. One of the Virtues is Ambition.

    -One of the Exalted Advantages (a splat wide benefit, such as Lunar Shapeshifting) for Infernals is Unwoven Coadjutor, which allows you to, once per session, ask your Demon for info on a topic and the ST must give you an important or story relevant fact.


    Lots of spoilers on...

  • There are a LOT of Charms, these are just some of those that stood out to me :

    Special - Charm that reduces attunement cost of all artifact weapons after the first by 3, is simultaneously an Archery, Brawl, Melee, Thrown and War Charm.

    Archery - Create a rope-arrow which also counts as a basic craft project! At E3, aim and move on the same turn for a small mote and ini cost. Also, you can turn your bow into a ballista and your flame weapon into a flame canon

    Athletics - create ice under your feet, creating difficult terrain and allowing you to walk on water....

    Personally I'd be intrigued to see how long Ezeri can last against Octavian, but for a fair fight I'm not sure myself, maybe 1-2 lower essence exalts?...

    I meant hive mind machines like the guy in your story made from 17 people.

    I like your take on DBs using their elemental affinities to craft unique body modifications, definitely a kinder fate for them than my own take....

    Ouch. Alhat's Charm that adds his initiative to his hardness is basically a hard counter against Mirror-On-Water's effect of attacking an enemy with their own initiative, so he may not be the best opponent to demonstrate that Charm in action....

    No worries, the story was fun and got its point across.



    In a far future setting, I would expect Infernals to take a prominent place in the setting. First because of their trans-humanist themes, and second because the advance of technology mixed with the death of taboos and traditions would put the Yozis in a decent spot to attempt an escape, or at least exert more influence in the world.

    Posthumanism signals the end of DB hegemony over civilization. In a world where people abandon their human bodies, DBs devolve into an inbred cult of bioconservatives barely...

    I enjoyed the story, but I don't get how the winner wins. Does their winning entry have countless hidden miraculous properties which are left to the imagination of the reader?...

  • Your praise got me to read the DB novella and I have to say I really enjoyed it, it's now tied with the Core intro for my favorite. I might have to do more of this reading-fiction-that-isn't-in-the-splat-books thing......

  • -Whenever you roll dice, you may turn individual dice around to change their value to one you like more. Each time you turn a die, gain 1 automatic point of Limit.

    -All conflicts between Exalts must be resolved via friendly competition, such as a strongman contest, a fishing competition or a rap battle. Breaking this edict in any way has the same consequences as breaking an Eclipse pact.

    Charms in Miracles of the Solar Exalted go there somewhat. Brawl can annihilate everything within short range with Burning Sky Apocalypse Strike, and Archery has Solar Judgement Flare, which, well...

  • Ex3 intro fiction is also my favorite. Between the longer overall length, lavish presentation, and the poetic writing style which mixes humor and seriousness together, it captured my imagination in a way that the shorter, more focused chapter fictions just can't compete with.

    Many styles with good synergy already have compatible weapons, so I guess the best way to leverage unarmed would be to look for complimentary styles that specifically can't be mixed except unarmed. Something like :

    -Earth Dragon + Crane to combine defensive styles
    -Mantis + Falcon to combine Grapple styles
    -White Veil + Ebon Shadow to combine Stealth styles
