  • Perhaps they'll be upset that Solar sorcerers tamper with the elemental essence of water and increase same-sex copulation in amphibians.

    If only there were a way to talk with these magical developer fellows. Sadly, they live far from the common man and the 3rd edition Lunar book has already come out, so there's no way to alter or change this....

    I expect that the rage is not from their mercurial nature, but their connection to their bestial selves. The idea is that anger is a very primal, raw emotion.

    It might be better to switch 'rage' with 'passion.' Ones passions can be very adaptable and even capricious.

    Isn't there a large chunk of Creation where the Realm has little or no presence? What percentage of Lunars are created in a place where a Wyld Hunt coming after them is a serious threat? Even in areas where the Wyld Hunt might operate, how difficult is it simply to not announce to all and sundry that you're an Anathema?

    I mean, you're a Lunar. You'd think they'd be one of the best at being inconspicuous if they feel like it.

    I can confirm that soul-hierarchies are a thing for Devil-Tigers.

    Here's a follow up: What does having a soul-hierarchy feel like? How it affect your thought processes and experiences?

    I think it would be a fascinating thing to RP.

    Even if the planet was flat, our atmosphere has so much stuff in it that visibility is limited to about 17km. Human vision is limited to about 30km.

    So, unless it's shining brightly or is made of an incredibly reflective surface, it's not going to be able to cut through that much atmosphere....

    I expect they're talking about the practicality of actually walking into a room with 12 feet of metal strapped to your back....

  • Octavius constantly changed his name because names were important to the Roman people.

    When he was declared Caesar's heir, he changed his name to Gaius Julius Caesar because 'Octavius' was a plebeian name, and his origins would hurt his chances in politics. Unsurprisingly, his political rivals and critics referred to him as Octavianus while he was still alive. His humble origin and attempts to hide them by changing his name was source of political mockery.

    Under the name Gaius Julius Caesar, he gained the loyalty of Julius Caesar's former troops and inflamed public opinion...

    I don't use them on my characters and my default mental images of other characters typically have them with large-but-not-that-large weapons.

    Now you'll tell my my Dragon Age/Exalted crossover isn't canon.

    I guess I need to clarify that I don't like subhumans, degenerate humans, or races that are inherently hideous or evil.

    Sure, if you introduced a group of Homo neanderthalis just as savages for the PCs to kill, they'd fit the same niche as darkspawn, so maybe the idea here is to create a group of alternative humans who *aren't* somehow more bestial, savage, unnatural, etc? Who are somewhat different from humans, but in a way that simply suggests different evolutionary branches, not humans-as-animals or humans-as-rarified-beings....

    I appreciate you informing the thread of that.

    Though, honestly, by the next time I have cause to type out Homo erectus or Homo sapiens sapiens, I'll have forgotten it....

    Your examples are all unnatural, and mostly on the hideous, savage, and bestial side....

    It could work.

    If H. Sapiens and H. Neanderthal are living in proximity though, I expect that they'd just interbreed until you couldn't tell the difference. Likewise, how do you distinguish different species of humans from the already incredibly diverse humans of Creation? If a group of PCs meet a member of homo erectus, how would they possibly know that this wasn't just a rather tall man with wider facial features?




    I'm thinking of all the short stories where a hero stumbles upon an isolated tribe of degenerate humans, subhumans, or altered humans....
