    Could you let us know exactly which loopholes we can use to undermine the intent of the new conception rules? ^_^

    A more serious question; Can you enlighten us on any rituals or social customs young Realm DB's use to try and coax out an exaltation? I've often understood that young dynasts go through something not unlike how young boys (and girls maybe, can't speak to their experiences) experience puberty where they try all kinds of bizarre customs and ideas to try and make it happen faster/at all. There is also the subtext of it being "the most important thing in your young life",...

    replied to Intimacies and the "Safety Net"
    In my home game we don't even track minor intimacies. To me, a minor intimacy is something along the lines of a notion, or a mild habit, you know... minor. Whenever social influence occurs, we just logically deduce "would/could this character have this intimacy" and the player says yes/no and explains and we move from there. NPCs I make a judgement call. Tracking minor intimacies to me are what lead to the 10+ intimacies on the sheet problem. This cuts it down to about 3-7 which feels about right to me. Plus, turning a minor intimacy into a major one and writing it down on your sheet...

I am *thrilled* with this approach.

    Now the only thing which can potentially disappoint me is the mechanics. Let's wait and see....

    Re: Exaltations-being-Objects/Fluff/Credit

    Fluff can always be rewritten to justify a series of events through the tonal lens you want in a fiction product. That's the advantage of fiat creation. Ultimately the main gameline has to (and should) take a more neutral stance on things like this precisely so people can invent their own mythos on the "How" part of the usurpation. Filling in those gaps takes away replay value from Exalted because you can never be in another game where you explore "How Exaltations work" as a concept because the answer is the same everytime...
