  • If I remember right, Debt: the First 5,000 Years is pretty valuable in all of this discussion, and reading that does a lot to make Creation's currency systems make a lot of sense.

  • Yeah. Something to think is that eight of dinar probably gets you room and board fora week and might even get you a lot of food and drink that might just be part of the tab. Thinka bout how in a lot of hotels the nicer it is, the more likely you have to pay for the wifi :/...

    Interesting, curious how that looks more now.

    Something else I guess is that due to how favoring works, I assume that the Warrior/Trickster/Shaman stuff is gonna be spread throughout the htree Attribute categories a bit, or will mostly the Mental stuff stay to No Moon themes, while the Physical FUll Moon and so on?...

    So both Dawn Caste Solar Exalted and Full Moon Caste Lunar Exalted have the archetype of "warrior" to them, which is right now the only real overlap of them and Solars Castewise. What can you say distinguishes a Sun's take on the ideal Warrior and the Moon's? I would think at times that "Solar Caste, but interpretted in this other Exalt" is sometimes one of the harder things to avoid, but it feels like of all Exalt Castes these are the two right now that overlap the msot.

    What does the Aspect of a House or a Gens mean exactly? Do minor or cadet Houses have them? Is this something that'll be in WFHW or The Realm?

  • It is. I would actually assume that for instance, any copper currency or such is probably local tender and just not really useful out of their contexts. Think things like the cities in I think Southeast Asia where folks used local casino chips as currency. Folks probably locally have silver for big things but for day to day are running debts and such.

    This kind of goes with an eight a dinar for an overnight stay. I think the general idea is that if you are going to be in town one night, you find somewhere you can pay in labor or something like a temple or don't pay at all, like...

  • There's also a shift in costs from previous editions. I think a dot worth of Resources is just flat-out worth more in 3e than it was in 1e and 2e. Resources 0 I think what was Resources 1, its cales form there, which also throws a lot of the table concerns out of whack before we even get to the whole "Obol is what hte innkeeper makes in half a year, not in one night" thing....

    So something about the Underworld I notice is while it itself has been talked about some, ghosts haven't been talked about much. At least not beyond stuff like passions and fetters. Is there anything that can be said about their presentation different from before? Is the general goal probably to make their rules more ST-facing and simplified htis time around?

    Also, how do you feel about previous editions tending to sell ghosts as the "weakest" of spirits? Looking at the NPC specters and ghosts about, they seem to put up more a fight if anything. Kind oflike with Exalt...

    Mid-life or retiree crisis is a thing afterall. The Bull in a way is like the guy who retired, was kind of just throwing himself into things in the twilight of his life, and suddenly found something to keep him going longer. That just happened to be "Be Genghis Khan" in effect....

    And on other things, as noted, chimerism is just not a thing this edition like it was in 2e. Chimerism lets you become like, I dunno, this take on a "giraffe" based on the Roman accounts of a camel with the hindquarters and spots of a leopard and the neck and tongue of a serpent:

    My gathering is that if you go this route you'll be seen maybe as an eccentric, but it's not like some critical case that you are going crazy this time around.

    The biggest things to me the Silver Pact...

    To kind of piggy-back on this a bit, I'm not a fan of the whole "Solars are needed" four a couple reasons.

    The first is that I kind of disliked the whole 1-to-1 thing of Solar-Lunars in 2e. To me the entire eidea of the Bond from 1e was something that Solars and Lunars, when it developed, happened to be something that was common and an emergent thing, not a hard-coded thing of Lunar Exaltation. The entire Bond idea to me worked better when it was a result of mutual trust, love, freindship/etc. that grew on its own terms and persists through lifetimes. The 2e take was...

    Actually, something related to the Getimian yin-yang thing is that the terms yin and yang or anything else dealing with the taijitu is really talked about much in Exalted in-depth. Will these mostly exist as system terms for Getimians I'm guessing, or are there going to be more English-termed stuff? And is dualism in the yin-yang sense a big thing for Getmians?

    Would the yin-yang mote pool things of Getimians be an example of that I am assuming?...

    Are Alchemicals sitll kind of that "Canon save whether Project Razor happens or not" like I got the vibe 2e had going for it? And might htere be bits like ancient Alchemicals hidden away in Creation still somehow?...

    I would assume also that while some of these beings were on the level of Incarna, that doesn't necessarily mean they were counted among them?...

    What about abstract elmental stuff? Like wind swirls, waves, fires, vine motifs, and things like that, or is that still pushing it for the Immaculates at times?...

    In the two-page spreads you have planned for the other Exalts, when listing Castes do you intend to mention the Adamant Caste for Alchemicals? And are they probably you think going to stay the "hidden" Caste?
