    If I recall correctly, there was also quite a few lines in 2ed about how you couldn't tell. Which would mean it is another of all those things where the books contradicted themselves (I've always went with you couldn't tell, as the lines talking about how they tried to figure it out, through genealogy and so on, made a much more interesting setting)....

    I have always interpreted the Shogunate Era as a Warring State Era, with a lot of different "countries" fighting each other.

    In my head-canon, the original Gens comes mainly from which Solar (but also other Celestial Exalted) they served under. While some has been destroyed, new ones have emerged, and some have merged, it is a form of clan system with heritage back to the first age. Some were meritocracies, while others had the notions of "Nobles" (well, all were most likely based on the Immaculate idea of only those of the Dragons are fit to rule).

  • Doing a happy dance

    Thank you for sharing. While I think the 3E map looks good, all the embellishments makes it kind of useless for me to be used for actual gaming. This is what I have been thinking of doing, but beside not having time for, being to lazy to do myself.

    Would you mind sharing the project file, or a large map with no location on it? That way it would be great resource to update with out own spots for our own games, and the size seems big enough to make local maps.

    When it comes to the location of things, while it is the same location as...

  • I have never use mIRC, so there can be something I'm missing. But wouldn't the same scoreboard be used for tracking Ticks? Check for the lowest number, let that person take an action and then add the number of ticks the action took, check for the lowest number... Rinse and repeat....

    How much focus the Lunars have on the Realm is something I guess should be dialed for each game table. If the Realm could send Wyld hunts left and right, not caring about resources, logistics, and diplomatic consequences, then I think a strong unified Silver Pact is in order.

    But if the Realm had a hard to projecting power into the Wyld even at it's height of power (especially pasts places like the the Scavenger Lands), other things would most likely matter more to those Exalting after the Great Contagion. I'm not sure the Realm would even hit the top 5 list of concerns for most Lunars...

  • I might be the only one in my "category", but as I missed the kickstarter, I bought Ex3 as a PoD when it got available. While I don't like the majority of it, I have cherry-picked parts and will but some of the coming modules. So I will run a 2.5-ish game, and it looks like we will finalize the characters (4 players) and perhaps start a game on Sunday.

    Considering most of my posts here is on the Exalted forum, I guess I'm not entirely successful, but I generally tend to stay away from talking about Exalted here.

    replied to You Don't Have to Join the Silver Pact…
    How I have decided to handle it for my 2.5-ish game is that the Silver Pact never has reached a three digit member count. More often than not, they are hovering around 50-75 members. Those are the ones with a honor system and the like. Quite a few Lunars think the Silver Pact are a bunch of fanatic crazies.

    Then there is a network of Lunars. Thanks to the need, or benefits, of the Moonsilver tattoos, most Lunars more than a hundred years old knows at least a handful of other Lunars. These are the lower case silver pact. Some uses trappings from the Silver Pact, like adding specific...

    The automated defenses would most likely be built to hold off a bunch of Solars or Lunars trying to take control over it. From that perspective, the reason two Dragon-bloods survived to the control room might be because general decay and most of the security being spent on previous attempts to get in....

    replied to The Empress : Who Was She?
    My take on most of the tales of the Empress is just propaganda, in a quite similar way as Putin is handling his image. So the Empress leading a Wyld Hunt probably meant she was sipping tea a few miles away, and saw the corpse after the Anathema was killed.

    In my mind, she was sort of a nerd on lore about what would later be called the Imperial Manse. So the reason she got involved was because one of the others mention "hey, I know of a young sorceress that might be useful." She wasn't the leader, and as the rest of the group she deserted to go on the mission. A desperate...

    When I ST or write it depend on if the location of the anathema is already known. The sids might figure out the general area an exaltation will take place, or seeing a lot of essence being used in an area; but they can't provide exact intel. Then there are also the intel coming through temples, military postings, allies, or other mundane channels.

    So more often than not, it is a matter of casting a net and tighten it until the anathema is located. In a way, this is sort of similar to the board game Scotland Yard https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotland_Yard_(board_game) For this, both...
