    I was not mature enough to handle a drink called Vulgar Effect back at M20 launch, and I'm not now.

  • Careful about your e-mails, everyone. Today I got an e-mail from a fishy address giving me a tracking number for my Ex3 deluxe delivery and a link to a fake dhl website.

    Don't click stuff carelessly!

    Hardness is hardly convoluted. "Got enough damage? If no, no pass"

    That's a feature of withering attacks being more used than decisive attacks.

    Hardness is fine as is. It's simple and counters thousand-cuts playstyles. Just like how soak counters thousand-cuts playstyles.
    In fact, without hardness medium+ soak loses much of its appeal.

    If hardness was more complicated to use I'd agree with you, but it's not......

    replied to Battle Groups - am I doing this right?
    My sentiments match the overall consensus here.
    Battle groups are almost exclusively a thing you do with extras, exalts and major spirits will never really be grouped!
    It's best to give ample chance for things to go wrong as well as to go right. Approaching Unnoticed with a small army is a feat of legend. Expect a high war / high stealth exalt to pull that off, not a lack of rolls. Set up a few over the journey

    And yes, battle groups can be nasty and properly commanded battle groups are absolutely terrifying. It's a quite direct association: about half the dice pool...

    I'm just questioning your logic on how vitae tass is less bad because you're taking it from the vampire. At this point it's already the vampire's blood... and yeah it's a mess.

    On the rules: The trait resonance is treated as optional and explained there in pages 560 and 561, there the trait is detailed. Meanwhile in page 503, the chart for magickal difficulties, resonance appears without any other explanation. Just "appropriate/inappropriate"

    I don't think that second connection's really convincing :/

    For one unless you're explicitly returning it to the owner somehow it's easy to say nothing's changed.
    For another that takes away the power of the Curse of the vampires, makes their Atrocities less the nature of the monster and more just the actions of a cannibal sociopath. Vampires are more than that.

    We all agree it's tass. I'm just saying stealing it from the vampire will come loaded with heaps of bad stuff, even if it's "stealing from thieves".


    BTW Just double checked....

    SpruceStripedGoose, you're losing yourself in the Scale problem.
    No media other than exalted will ever really convey itself smoothly to exalted's scale. It'll be all over the place, even within different characters of the same story.
    That's what I referred to when I said you'll never have a good way to differentiate heroic mortal from solar when adapting a story. The easiest would require comparing in-setting characters of similar nature, like moana and her people. Considering she's comparatively the top dog in anything she set out to do and her will and work quite literally changed...

    They are organized enough you can tell someone good at it from someone bad at it. That should be enough....

    Quintessence extracted from an unwilling creature pretty much always comes with this bad resonance. It's part of why you don't really do that unless you're that desperate or do it for the kicks. It happily coincides with how these kind of people always do some absurdly elaborate rituals...gotta bring forth other resonances to compensate

    You're thinking of resonance as in your signature and the effects on you. I am talking about the resonance of the tass itself and how it, well, resonates with what you want to do.

    Like how a resonance of empathy and simpathy is good for healing or sensing emotions.
    A resonance of fuck you will literally always count as inappropriate for whatever you want to do.

    You are being picky without need.
    That story is also one of the exact prime stories for exalting as a solar.
    That she succeeded against quite literally primordial odds only reinforces that.
    That she did what the gods and monsters couldn't reinforces that.

    You'll never have a very clear cut difference between heroic mortal and solar in a medium that doesn't use explicitly those terms, by the way....

    The easiest way is indeed to treat it as some kind of lame tass. Pick a less favorable conversion ratio (2:1 or 3:1) and go have fun with prime 2 for the collected blood, or extracting it via prime 5 or life 3 matter 3.

    The main complications are:
    while stealing back the vitae is nice, it's not all fun and games... it's an energy already tainted to the verbena eye in so many ways. I'd totally include some purification process before that is available.

    unwilling targets are a crapshoot. Also automatic fuck you resonance, so not worth it :|
