  • I don't think so, most people from the sounds of it still have not gotten the tracking message or package. Going by the address warning message, Shattered Dreams started shipping Mid-February, so given the larger Exalted shipping effort I think we've got some time....

    So! I finally watched the new Ghostbusters movie on Monday.

    The pacing and style was of course *way* different from the first one.

    Generally I'd say it was a good/decent movie. Not great. Not something that's gonna have the staying power of the original, but good. Overall? I'd honestly rate it around about Ghostbusters 2 level, maybe slightly lower.

    On the negative side:

    With all the bloody cameos and endless original referencing it felt like the writers were trying to give the original a tongue bath while they hugged close their Original...

    replied to The Caul
    Haven't done extensive things with it yet. So far I had players visit it in one game where they were looking for lunars. They ended up cutting a deal exchanging a large scale assault on the remaining dragonblooded city (that would dramatically fail by intent) in exchange for agreeing to humiliate & crush the Dragonblooded later... it was part of a plot on the part of the solar PCs to be in the area when the attack happened and "Exalt" as lost eggs and save the city dramatically enough to get serious attention from the Isle.

    Another game had a plan to have PCs go there...

  • How would I stat them?

    Get the Yeddim Stats.
    Note the whippy tail in the picture.
    Note the grabby flower head in the picture.
    Note the sharp claws in the picture.
    Note it's leaner than a yeddim.

    Find a short-range power on another creature that could be a whip attack/grapple if refluffed.
    Find a super-grapple power on another creature that could be the flower head attack.
    Change the damage up so it reflects claws.
    Drop the Strength and Stamina a bit, maybe increase dex.

    Quick custom critter complete.
    optionally,...

    (The following is a joke)

    OOOOoooh, So I see how it is! Using the *actual* Exalted figures ain't good enough for some people!

    (/Joke)

    More seriously pretty much any fantasy setting minis work.

  • In California, still no notice or package. Mine was a rather large/odd order though, so I wouldn't be surprised if it were one of the last.

    I think the proportional scale of advantages and disadvantages is important. Having someone stab you repeatedly with a shiv and then leave it in you does indeed give you the upside of a free shiv, but generally it's not something even remotely worth the damage the exchange did....

    replied to Immaculate History : Expanded
    I generally like to run the Realm's version of the Immaculate faith to be very localized and while on the whole all part of the immaculate faith, different locations and belief structures arise within it that result in slight variations, or different focuses on different aspects of the beliefs. Let me see if I can find a write up I did for one such faction for a character....

    The followers of the Prima Fide were considered harmless, and somewhat eccentric during the time when the...

    "Congratulations former slaves, you're now free! Now your first free choice is to stay here and die horribly, leave here and die horribly, or sign up to serve in my army which will soon be marching forth to attack other nations, during which you may possibly die violently. In the meantime, you will endure grueling training and vast make-work projects to keep you busy."

    Starts to feel a lot like slavery where you feed the slaves a bit better.

    Which then ties into the whole "yeah, they're just going to kill their overseers and leave when they can&quo...

    I suspect the cost to buy the Exalted rights is beyond what a kickstarter could reasonably raise.

    If *I* was running a character that had reason to obtain a large number of slaves, and I didn't want to get them from the open market but rather from people that already had them... I'd focus on finding ways to buy out the industries/people that had those slaves and otherwise obtain legal title to them. Assassination, forged wills, employing some legbreakers to apply pressure to the businesses to buy them for a song... of course then you're dealing with the fact that those businesses and plantations and ranches are *closing* because you're talking the work force away to fight, so that's going...

    There's a certain ethical and personal issue with having the company/people that support and promote Zak S to the point of going "Yep, no evidence! No problem!" being the ones to review/approve/change the work you pour heart and soul into... I mean that is why David Hill opted to leave as I recall, and while other people are not as... directly involved... in the Zak S stuff as he, it does seem to be a valid stance to take....
