    Yeah, that could work. Especially for the worker pattern.

    For warrior, I had an idea that also sort of resolves the issue of resonance. Because it's tempting to give the jadeborn resonance with jade, but that might be too powerful in the long run and steps on dragonblooded's toes a fair bit. Even downgrading everything a step might be too much.

    So I thought, hey, what if as far as standard evocations go, they're dissonant with everything, but they have some other innate connection with jade? Like, maybe some of their charms can bounce off it or get stronger if they...

    Blatant wish fulfilment fantasy that begins with the self insert being hit by a truck sounds like a bit of a cry for help to me.

    Yeah, I can see the sids during the shogunate being all "oh, this isn't too bad. Yeah, I can live with this amount of lessened"

    And then the contagion hit and they were all

    "Oh."

    "Shit."

    Now, the other question is martial arts. Apparently, the reason they couldn't do it in past editions was that the person who wrote them thought raksha couldn't, and wanted them to be the same.

    But then it turned out raksha could learn MA.

    And honestly the more rigid, predictable essence flows of martial arts techniques do lend themselves to mountain folk quite well....

    I just had a vision of a lunar slur for deebs that when you trace the etymology is actually a first age rank equivalent to lieutenant or something....

    The proper response is to get into a bragging contest.

    "Thirty? I once took on a hundred enemy soldiers, with one arm hacked off and bleeding from the stump!"
    "..."
    "It grew back"

    Plus, this thread is about the dragon blooded, not the realm.

    Outcastes are fine. They might well be fighting the big empire.

    I think that last bit happened in a comic, so I'm not sure if it was ever canon-canon.

    Is this in 2e or 3e?

    Cos "awakened essence" isn't really a thing on it's own in 3e....

    2e mentioned people going on quests into the wyld and other places trying to get powers. Usually you just get a second head, but sometimes the (metaphorical or otherwise) dice would roll in your favour.

  • I think "side effect" is the wrong word. They knew that the dragonblooded exaltations would be non-reincarnating (possibly a trade-off for making so many) so they needed them to have some means of replenishing their numbers.

    But, much like they didn't intend the celestials to immediately begin reincarnating, they likely didn't intend the deebs to immediately set about producing the next generation.

    Well wherever the surcharge first appeared, it's last was in 2e. DBs are a lot more flexible now, up to the level solars were in past editions. (Solars in 3e are even flexible-er)

    Yeah, once per scene, maybe with some condition that lets you use them again if fulfilled.

    And give dawns an anima power that lets them reset them all once a... oh hang on....

  • Hmm, do you think Ten Ox meditation would be more functional with a better success to strength dot conversion?

    It's still rendered obsolete by Nine Aeons Thew, of course, barring situations where one is out of willpower, but 9AT is a capstone. Perhaps we could throw in a clause that makes Ten Ox do something else when used in conjunction or something.

    "We emphasise unity because TOGETHER, the dragon blooded are the mightiest force in creation. Individually, however, there is shit out there that will chew you up and spit you back out. Don't be a lone wolf, and don't be a weak link. These bastards can smell fear."

    I like this idea. It gives them a way to do first age artifice (ie a lot of what magitech became) without being able to do stuff like cast Death of Obsidian Butterflies, which frankly just feels wrong, y'know?

    Maybe give them a charm tree with this geomancy charm at the bottom that gives more specific sorcerous effects that fit their aesthetic or something. Because we've seen from AOTR that raksha get "wyldcraft" to replicate sorcery, and this could be similar....

    Here's what you have to remember about withering. Exalted isn't just a game, it's a story. And in a story, powerful characters never go down in one hit.

    You're not just trying to simulate your dude trying to murder another dude. You're choreographing a fight scene.

    A withering attack isn't a feint. Common misconception.

    It's an entirely serious attack that out-of-universe has be preordained to be non lethal for the purposes of cinematography....
