    Pretty sure that that's a deliberate key to use the poetic alternate pronounciation, 'wing-ed' rather than the every day 'wingd'....

    Hmm.

    You're right. As far as the actual, ultimate goal of any game goes - as far as having fun goes - there isn't a wrong way to do it, so long as everyone at the table is on the same page about things. I allowed my passion for worldbuilding and utter disappointment with Savage Seas to drive me to an excessively broad phrasing, which was wrong. I should not assume that the difference between stage paint and the use of real working models for set construction is as obvious and relevant to everyone as it is to me. Mea culpa, I apologize.



    I've been only vaguely...

    Speaking as someone who does take emphatic issue with introducing the age of sail, you've pretty much hit the nail on the head. Having an Indiaman or frigate's rigging looming over the Arabian-Nights docks of Chiarascuro is like having somebody show up at a reenactment in Nikes, or a cell phone going off in the middle of a symphony - not only is it grating and obviously wrong, it's wrong in a way that rubs your nose in the fact that whoever was responsible didn't respect you, or respect the game, enough to care. It's shoddy workmanship, as worldbuilding goes, and Exalted is better than that....

  • Hmm.

    When I was running my game, which took something like... Two years, real time? I think? We had... One just-exalted Sid who ended up as a PC's adopted daughter, two more recurring ones who basically traded places under the same 'public' identity to serve as her trainer along with their other, more globe-trotting duties, plus two further Sids who showed up as basically bit characters with major travel involved. A Wyld Hunt who ended up mostly talked-down and recruited; call it three short DB appearances and two longer-lasting ones. One Lunar who was a major NPC, another who showed...

  • I've never cared much for the Wyld or for Raksha, but if I were to run a plotline with them, I'd be stealing liberally from Mercedes Lackey's When the Bough Breaks and Chrome Circle. Mechanical support for running the Wyld as 'Underhill' from those books would be useful.

    My instant go-to reference for the political situation and, mmmm, mood of the Shogunate is actually...

    Battletech.

    No, really. The Third Succession War there was a time of declension, of Lost Technology impossible to replicate after the deaths of all who understood it. Of constant raiding and minor bloodletting. A time when ancient wonders were expensive, but lives to fight in and alongside them were all too cheap, especially in the eyes of the noble bloodlines who were contesting for control of all in the name of constantly disputed claims to long-lost titles... And...

    replied to Ask the Devs
    I have an existing character whose background is closely involved with Leviathan's poor grief-handling skills and the resulting Luthian underclass. Is there any data you're able/willing to share that could give me an insight into how much rewriting I'll have to do?...
