    Yeah, I was gonna mention the alchemical thing, which does indicate that the memories are still in there.

    It could also have something to do with the whole soul gem stuff though.

    Yeah, I think it's worth considering what the hun and po bring to the table, and contrast it to what the exaltation brings with it.

    As far as I'm aware, the Hun is recycled after passing through lethe, whilst the Po is freshly created for each person. The Hun loses all it's memories, usually, so the main thing it brings to the table is basic tendencies, I guess? whereas the Po provides more animalistic base drives. These mesh together to form a unique core personality that will be shaped by the individuals life experiences.

    Reincarnating Exaltations carry vague memories...

    Probably worth noting that "Dragon blooded have less charms" isn't supposed to be true in-universe. It's just a product of wordcount constraints....

    There's a community of dragon blooded up there.

    Dragon blooded do not have a 100% exaltation rate.

    Ergo, yes. There are mortals living in Yu Shan....

    I think that has something to do with the original post being a Spinal Tap joke.

    I don't care what second edition says. Where in third edition does it say that?...

    Where does it say the jade prison was a physical container? What if it was like, a radar jammer that prevented the exaltation signal from merging with a mortal waveform or whatever?

    The thing about 3e is that it's deliberately vague. You're not gonna find explicit descriptions of the mechanics, and they still work vaguely like they used to. There's not exactly 300 solar shards, but that's about how many solars the sun will exalt before he stops. There could be more, there could be less. And that's how it works for every other aspect. The exaltation isn't a "second, more important...

    Ok, I just checked and miracles doesn't refer to the exaltation as a shard, it refers to the solar as a shard of the unconquered sun.

    The context is entirely different....

    One way you can think of Exaltation is as a title. When a king dies, his heir becomes the new king. That king is still himself, but he's also "the king"

    Now imagine kingness came with a new soul and memories.

    Although the fluff says learning a martial art requires access to a sifu to teach you or at least books on the subject.

    You could consider the merit to represent that, with the attendant ally/mentor benefits that come with it....

    By RAW, (which a lot of people don't follow) a mortal needs the MA merit to get the dots of martial arts.

    This is usually not a very good deal, unless you go all the way to 5 dots in one that can be used both unarmed and with a weapon. This works out to be slightly cheaper than buying brawl and melee all the way up to 5....

    I think since high essence charms are now more about personalising than power, how increasing essence would actually work is the charms are more and more about you as a character and less and less about your exaltation's themes.

    So by essence 10 you get stuff that barely resembles a solar charm cos it's all about your legend.

    replied to Help Me Make Dragon Armor
    Hmm, maybe it needs to interface with dragon blooded charms directly. Like, maybe to the point where it affects aura?

    What if each dragon armour has 5 hearthstone slots, and the wearer counts as being in the auras matching the elements of the hearthstones inserted into it?

    Sticking in a celestial stone counts as having one of the element of the jade it's made from....

    Might is supposed to represent whatever charms various members of a battle group are using. That's why they can't use them. It's folded into another trait....
