    I think you can probably do a lot better than just copying real tech. Who needs a steam engine when you can fuel your vehicles with the laughter of children?

    Old Realm is just a bizarre combination of Japanese and Welsh, apparently.

    Logically there's got to be some criteria beyond just your bloodline, and since dragon blooded exalt young before they have much of a chance to actually do something impressive the Dragons must go by what potential they seen in them, so yeah, strength of character sounds like one of the more sensible things to look for.

    What seems to be the case is that a stronger bloodline makes exalting someone easier. The Dragons are a lot quicker to approve you if your parents are also dragon blooded, so it would make sense that it's because this is a smaller investment than exalting a lost egg....

    Virtues in that sense aren't a thing in 3E, so it would be a lot more freeform than that.

    The dragon of Earth is definitely asleep. Not sure about the others. I think Wood is awake.

    There's no canonical reason given why the dragons don't exalt everyone they can, hence my headcanon that it's a strain for them to exalt that many people so they don't do it because in the modern age there's no need for it.

    Actually thinking about this gave me a new headcanon:

    During the war, the exaltation rate of those with terrestrial blood was at or near 100%, because the dragons wanted as many exalts as possible to fight. This rate dropped to it's current levels after the war not because of mortals diluting the bloodlines, but rather because exalting that many dragonblooded was exhausting and a contributing factor towards the Dragon's dormancy in the current age....

    The reason not all of the children of two dragon blooded exalt is that the Elemental Dragons don't want them to.

    No working can change that....

    Exalted hear the prayers of their cults by standing in front of them and hearing them pray out loud.

    This is why you summon with buddies present. It goes wrong you might need backup.

    Yeah, my rough estimate for the number of second circle demons is about three thousand-ish. which is at a guess over three times the number of individuals in creation who could ever theoretically learn to summon them....

  • Yeah, you can't beat solars by out-muscling them. You need to find a niche you can exploit. The big advantage lunars have is they can easily become competent in everything, which means they will probably have an area or two where they can outperform any given solar, since the latter tend to be more specialists. Alchemicals have a similar advantage, being attribute-based too.

    What they'd need to do is know who they were dealing with in advance, and select a charm loadout that attacks the solar in question's weak points....

    Nice clause at the end there. No stealing SMA permanently....

    Also you should only say the demon is unavailable at all if that's an established canon fact in the story.

    Like, unless you've actually seen octavian bound by someone else, he's available....

    The yozis being unable to get free doesn't mean exalted doesn't do the "Sealed evil in a can" trope. There are lots of those. Dragonblooded get a charm to make them.

    The yozis are an exception because 2e showed us that if you present the slightest hint that they could get out the setting warps around that plot point....

    I don't think that saying the incarnae, elemental dragons and third circle demons are all roughly in the same ballpark of power is inaccurate.

    That sounds like Immortality with the required caveat (can be killed by specific thing) so i think you're good....

    I think officially they aren't actually called the same as the immaculate dragons.

    In practice it's probably more "I guess these are their names now".

    Yeah, that's the bottom line really. Whatever they are, they are beings on-par with the less powerful of the incarnae....
