    replied to On "Chicanery"
    So you're using an... in game reason to justify rules exploitations? No. It's within the right of any ST to call shenanigans the certain readings of or combination of charms. The exploitation of rules and/or misreading of context to overvalue your exp purchases above their expected values diminishes game balance, which in turn makes it harder for the ST.

    Exalted is not a story about how your character cleverly manipulated the meta-game to rofl-stomp all over the opposition.

    Shenanigans on the initial post of this thread, shenanigans I say.

  • It may be reasonable to treat them similar to Flame Tag Archery weapons, granting +4 to damage but removing an attackers strength from the damage equation. Maybe granting an attack which sacrifices a small amount of initiative for bonuses to destroyong material objects...

    Evocations are a bit trickier, since they generally encompass custom specific ephemeral or unique powers, but beamklaives are more, eh, power based on default construction. Hmm

    Me too! Makes sense.



    Interesting. I suppose it sounds like I'm looking to enforce an exp tax against my players, but what I'm trying to do is put agency in their hands. I'm having some difficulty getting my Sorcerers hands on Celestial tier spells, at least as fast as they'd like. Hurmm, more like a question I should put to the general Exalted forum.

    Thanks for the quick response!...

    Is it within the Sorcerous Workings Wheelhouse to refine gold into Ori, silver into MS, etc; or is that a thing limited to literal infraatructure? If an unofficial answer is unavailable, what would you do in your game?

    In a similar vein, can Spell Creation, as in creating or researching new spells which can be cast through the use of SM at a later time, be modeled as a Sorcerous Working? I figure a new Emerald circle is a Terrestrial Ambition, Sapphire is Celestial, etc.

    Thanks!

  • Just posting to thank you for the conversion of Obsidian Shards of Infinity Style, I have a Sidereal maybe-antagonist who's going to be a holy terror with it if my group of Solars (they just reached E3, will likely not put them to battle with her until they get to 4) decide to go against her....

    replied to War gods descendent Question
    That's not precisely true. The Solar charmset is supposed to (at least on one level) encourage dipping into ability sets at the 1 essence level. 2E then add competencies and reinforce the power of those charms, then E3 hits another crest, then the rare E4 and 5 follow a similar pattern. Unfortunately I've forgotten exactly where I've pulled this bit of meta-text on Solar charm design from, but if I run across it again I'll post the link...

    Going back to the topic at hand, the 'only after successfully initiating a strategic maneuver' makes the charm difficult to pull off in the...

    started a topic Exalted in Gencon 2017?

    Exalted in Gencon 2017?

    So, the event/game sign up for Gencon's 50-year anniversary con just concluded and I'm reviewing my list of games, and I gotta admit I'm a little bummed not to see any Exalted 3rd (or even 1st or 2nd edition) listed as a game category. I could run a game myself, but I'm more 'n a little nervous to do so since no one else has stepped up to the plate; worries me that there might be some specific reason as to why.

    Anyway, someone have something better than a conjecture as to why there are no Exalted games available for play this year? Similarly, anyone else a little despondent over...

  • I don't think it's necessarily wise or practical to extrapolate things about Lunar charm-set abilities based on an individual Solar charm.

    Really, this is one of the best things that the move to 3rd edition granted; it opened up a creative space in the game to indicate that merely the existence of a charm does not indicate space in the game that the rest of the essence using individuals (for lack of a better term) should be judged around.

    Or, more practically, I just don't think it's a very useful thought exercise to consider Solar "clone effect" charm affects...

  • This.

    I feel like something is getting lost in translation. I agree that it could be an interesting idea to explore. Howeveeeer, other things in this characters background don't point towards this dichotomy.

    The 2 seems less like a writing decision and more like a typing error.




    Intelligence is massively difficult to measure in real life and capability on a stats screen is hella abstracted, forgive me if I'm not swayed by the anecdote.

    ALSO.
    AGAIN.
    FOR EMPHASIS.

    I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE CHARACTER,...

  • My issue is less his combat capability and more common sense; I'd expect a character who values knowledge to the degree that he does to be above average smart. At intelligence 2 the idea that the character would have bern taken on as an apprentice in the first place (as listed in the fluff) strains its credibility for me.

    My criticism here, in any case is light. I really liked the character, and will be using him in my game.

  • I too really enjoyed the character and his write up, I definitely have a space planned for him in my games amongst a small court of previously mortal sorcerers.

    One thing I was surpfised by was the Librarians low intelligence score. While I wasn't expecting the typically optimally specialized 5-5-Specialty; 2 for the primary attribute of this characters defining attribute seems -very- low.

    In any case an easy fix, and definitely a flavorful character who will be making an appearance in my game. Well worth the money.
