  • Hmm the Loom would be a major target even if one had no plans to destroy or mess with it. I mean even taking the tendency for Exalts to not be effected by their own fates the Loom would still represent an exceptional amount of information that could be leveraged for a lot of different goals. I mean lets go with a base assumption that the Gets view the Realm as an enemy for the sole reason that it is a powerful asset/ally the Sidereal have. (No evidence, just postulation here.) If you wanted to screw up the Realm the Loom would tell you the most likely points where it could be vulnerable, or tipping...

  • Unless Rakan doesn't believe that the loom is as necessary to Creation as is believed, or believes that there's an alternate method. Afterall even without Sidereal, or even exalt, interference events in Creation do not always play out the way things are dictated by the loom. Entirely possible for a bitter Rakan to come to the conclusion that the purpose of the loom is to manipulate and that he and the Sids are merely being fooled into being the catspaws of whatever mad game he thinks the Maidens are running. Even if he doesn't believe that, he's the expert so it wouldn't be that hard for the...

    Umm Ishvara class Rhaksha still attacked Creation. Rhaksha in general still occaisonally went into Creation and fed on people. Not to mention that people in Creation don't really deal with those things listed on a daily basis. The Balorian Crusade and Great Contagion were singular events that by the current era its pretty much the same thing as the Black Death and World War 1. They were big, they were terrifying, people are probably worried about it happening again, and there are ripples in the world that are a side effect of it, but it isn't like elders can sit there and go, "Bah, you call...

    Okay the idea of arcane connections is the old idea of an aura or essence, basically things of yours that are with you and you interact with get parts of your essence or energy rubbed off on them. The longer and more contact a thing has with the person the better a connection it is. Hair, skin, blood, body parts are excellent connections because they were a part of the person and are basically entirely saturated with said energy.

    A photo that was taken of the person that they never had contact with lacks that opportunity for any aura rub off to occur, hell a better case could be...

    I'd say no. At that point its connection to the person is about as strong as a drawing of a person in a typical fantasy setting. Might help with knowing who're going after, but its not really connected to the person....

    Pretty much the mixed case. The Usurpation, as presented, was done with more of an eye towards removing the Solars and Lunars before they actively became the largest threat to Creation rather than the DBs and Sids deciding they wanted to rule the world and get all the stuff the Solars and Lunars had. The current situation is generally them attempting to make the world the best place it can be while functioning as its protectors, and rulers while enjoying the perks that come from being the god kings and queens of the world. This also means destroying potential threats to the world like newly reborn...

    replied to Sidereals, Terrestrials, and the Usurpation
    The truth about the Usurpation isn't hidden to keep the DBs in line. At worst the absolute truth is only kept quiet for the DBs because they don't want to potentially deal with the conflicted emotions that would potentially come from, "So your position a god-like figure comes because of a point where your ancestors and my predecessors decided our bosses were becoming dangerous nutters. So we teamed up and murdered the shit out of them when they didn't expect it. Then we labeled them as kill on sight demon monsters, partially to make it harder for the new one to gain the resources that would...

  • I think part of this is going to need explanation on the thing you're collecting. Like an obvious one would be you can't just collect names by meeting people and getting their names to write in the book, whereas a scrapbook full of contract envelopes for the unchained you've helped seal these deals* on would probably work well.

    *It isn't easy and everyone thinks you're nuts for working with one of those life swapping weirdos, but hey no one else in the neighborhood has an album literally containing the deeds to human souls....

    Well if we're talking the whole truth, then I'm thinking those numbers are slim to none. If we're just talking "Ages ago the Solars ruled the world with the aid of other members of the Exalted host. This lasted until they were cast down for when it became clear that they were the greatest enemies to the world." Then the count is probably higher though still relegated to upper ranks.

    In 3rd edition Sidereal seem to be a sort of legend figures of great power and mystery that have just enough known about them for it to be thought by most that there is something that exists....

  • Well just to put this out Sids only wear those hats as a faction. A sid is only going to take over mentoring someone under two situations, obligation, or benefit. A Sid might decide to mentor a Solar because they believe the Solar can be guided along routes that will make the Sid's job easier with the exchange that they'll teach the Solar Sidereal Martial Arts, help the Solar get them information, or the like. If a Sid doesn't have time to go through the trouble of mentoring a Solar then they won't.

    Part of the advantage the Sids have with the Realm, consequently one of the reason's...

    In what capacity are you talking? World of Darkness seems like the only one you couldn't just say you're a demigod and start out at high level play to emphasize that fact if all you're looking for is playing a demigod....

    replied to Talassi nightmares
    Well remember the family nightmare is more an archetype than what the Beast needs to feed. Plus its not like there can't be overlap in Beasts, so not a huge issue there. Now the if we were going for how imprisonment would distinguish from hopelessness, well I mean people get out of jail doesn't mean that there aren't people still afraid of being locked up....

  • Right, but a real world eclipse is caused by the sun earth's rotation and the moon just happening to cross between the sun and earth or the earth get between the sun and project the earth's shadow onto the moon. Neither of those really work when neither are in orbit in space around the world and are literally pulled across the sky....

    replied to Beasts in the Hedge
    Well technically speaking a Beast's immunity to most Lair Traits will come best when they've performed an overlay of a Lair trait.
    So one could make a case that the Hedge will normally do things to screw up a Beast, but if a Beast overlay's their Lair for the Maze trait then the Hedge can't force itself through the Lair that way to screw with the Beghotten.

  • Yeah, orbital eclipses are probably uncommon for a flat world where the closest approximation of outer space is a complete abscense of the laws of physics and nature.

    New update So it's been a while and this has had a bit of an update since last time.

    Though this one would be the update after the last one Aquallion mentioned for those that haven't checked in a bit.
