    Huh. So the published artifacts Evocation trees are more like suggestions of what's possible with that item, but in the hands of a PC those might not be the actual powers that become available? Interesting....

  • I'd imagine it varies tremendously, but I think some of the backgrounds from What Dreams May Come could provide inspirational visuals.

    My impression was that the talent for Thaumaturgy, while rare, is still vastly more common than mortals who are sorcerers, let alone Exalted with sorcerous leanings. It's basically like the difference between someone who can paint well enough to make a sign or Christmas gift and someone who can get a gallery show for their work.

  • I'd think human habitation would have to be underground in areas where winds are flinging boulders around like confetti. That would scour normal architecture and even the topsoil away every time it hit.

    Doesn't the Bargain with Mara sorcerous initiation text indicate she can do something like that? Though my impression is she's a real overachiever in terms of what weird stuff 2nd circles can do to mortals, what with turning them into sorcerers and soul-eating monsters and haunting their dreams and all....

    Between this and Jenna Moran I'm getting the impression that higher math is a lot more involved in the behind-the-scenes formation of RPGs than I'd previously suspected.

    - prefers smuggling to violent piracy

  • It has the same strange fairy-tale feel to it.

  • Oh my, I think that evokes the Flat Earth stories better than most of the background info in the actual core.

    I'm starting out with 9 and 7, but neither character has a lot of rigid moral principles. (I expect the former to accrue new loyalties and rivalries fairly quickly in play; the latter is effectively a sociopath, so he'll be slow to add new ones and they're likelier to be principles based on unpleasant circumstances he finds himself in.)

    Is there any existing method that would allow someone to foil an assassination attempt by a bound demon and send that demon back to attack its summoner as retribution?

    I know that sorcerous bindings have been ruled as effectively unbreakable, but I was thinking in terms of a multi-step method where the demon is dragged back to Malfeas by other demons or banished there by exorcism-like Thaumaturgy to end the binding, and only then invited back to Creation unbound via sorcerous working. Could something like that work? (Asking for a friend with the Infernal Nobility merit, so he'd have...

  • Doesn't dragonblooded culture in a larger sense have "Princes of the Earth" as a shared moniker? That might make the word more a descriptor of the divine favor of the Elemental Dragons rather than something as vulgar and transitory as a political title to them.

  • And now a couple of Evocations for the shintai:

    Devil Scorpion Sting
    Cost: —; Mins: Essence 3
    Type: Permanent
    Keywords: None
    Duration: Permanent
    Prerequisite Charms: None

    This Evocation allows the sorcerer to grow a venomous scorpion tail while in shintai form, one which has the traits of a medium artifact weapon with the tags Lethal, Brawl, Flexible, Piercing, and Reaching. On a successful decisive attack, the sting injects the target with Yozi Venom.


    Feathered Chimes Aegis
    Cost: 5m, 3i; Mins: Essence 3

  • Ah, that makes more sense then. Between the preview and what I recall from the 3e core, I'd been left with the impression that the Bull was a growing threat rather than one largely spent on the bloodbath. If winning depleted his armies enough that he lost control of the regions he'd consolidated, it is effectively a Realm victory, albeit a costly one.

    I'd imagine his recent example of what a handful of Solars can stir up when not immediately stomped out by the Wyld Hunt would have the remaining Dynasts going to Defcon Minus Eleventy-One when they find out that all 300+ are back in...

  • I haven't read the associated background from previous editions, but isn't it a really big thing that just five solars in the hinterlands are able to amass enough military power to gut an entire great house? It seems to me that would be enough of a threat to stifle inter-house rivalries even in the Empress' absence, at least until the Bull's forces could be scattered.

  • Can you use the Dodge charms in combination with the bonus for being mounted (as per the original post)? I'd think that any calculations involving Dodge should drop the +1 from that, unless you're using some charm/spell that merges you and your mount into a centaur-like gestalt.

  • Both suggestions sound good to me. However the spell works, it needs to be byzantine and obviously wondrous for a bystander to behold, not a simple laying on of hands and "all better now!"

    Personally, I find the current approach—regular updates about where various books/supplements are in the development process—to be an ideal method of keeping customers informed without risking disappointment by predicting release dates far in advance and then having to change them.
