    Plastering over actually usually does preserve art. Kind of a thing i personally saw this, the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul originally was a cathedral. When the Turks took over the city and converted it into a mosque, rather than destroying the art, they just plastered them over. When the mosque was turned more into a historical site/museum site in the 20th Century (I don't think they do any services in there now) they removed the plaster in some areas, and it turns out a lot of the art was still fine.

    The combination of Solar magic, Dragon-Blooded architects, and fantasy plot...

    It's also in the 1e book Exalted: the Outcaste. All three palces have different amount of information to what they summarize or list as ranks there....

    My guess is that ghosts with PC rules aren't really a priority for the devs, and we will not likely see any Arcanoi in a Charm chapter setup like before. Ghosts having kids or not is probably going to be a plot point, rather than any Charm or Merit.

    In 2e they are creatures of death, but it's never said whether or not they're creatures of darkness. I would assume most of the time they're not since they're not really dead. Maybe if they hit some threshold or obtain some magic or something. Also depends if you take into account 2e's change that all god-bloods use Essence. In 1e at least some just were folks with a lot of Merits that again, probably could make them creatures of darkness. Including a flaw there.

    In 3e creature of darkness applies to demons and the undead by default, but it's ST discretion beyond that. Probably not...

    A thing to remember with 3e Charm rules is they're written in part to be reflective and used in games set in the current era. They don't represent the entirety of what an Exalt can do, nor are meant to be able to replicate what they could have done in the past. It's not a matter that the DBs coudln't do it, it's that the system isn't interested in representing the way it was done in the Shogunate in the modern day.

    My understanding was that penalties apply directly to Defense values to make them more significant on purpose. That some Solar Charms kind of trivialize them kind of to me is a bit where they overshot on the Charms end more.

    Which edition matters, as always. All-Encompassing Sorcerer's Sight in 3e actually doens't reveal Exalted nature. It detects sorcery, the use of Evocations, presence of dematerialized spirits, boundries to supernatural areas like shadowlands or spirit sanctums and so on. Burning Eye of the Deliverer helps the Solar pierce magical disguises, but doesn't in itself reveal Exalted nature as I gather. Sorcerer's Burning Chakra helps the Exalt determine the nature of spirits, and Spirit-Drawing Oculus is what lets the Solar see Charms in more detail. But notably they don't have a "Glance at guy,...

    The gist I get with Thrown weapons as a note is that a "set" of them is one weapon. Rather than trying to throw every single javelin, you probably have put them in a quiver or something to let you readily use each one as you do, and the Draw/Ready action is more for like if you wanted to unsheath the throwing knives on your belt after having opened up the latch or shifted your javelin bundle to be more usable....

    replied to Exalts and their areas of expertise
    This all feels based on this need to prop up an Exalt by saying how they aren't the other Exalt, which is kind of what I feel 3e is getting away from. I also think the OP is asking something a bit too broad of a question since the different Exalted in this edition I would say are about having area sof expertise save just being really good at doing the things that Exalt is generally themed around, without this real big plan to have it be compartmentalized or have to fit with one another in such away that if a Solar does it, Lunars can't or vice-versa. They just focus on different ways to achieve...

    Does this mean Terrestrial Exalted when used in text is what it historically meant? Dragon-Blooded?...

    So I could have sworn this was asked here, but I can't seem to find the information on it and it's starting to nag me some.

    According to this post, the categories Terrestrial and Celestial Exalted aren't really things anymore. However, I have seen also things implying that the terms are somewhat used here and there for gauging strength of Exalt types. An example was here, where the three optional Exalted were compared between Terrestrial and Celestial Exalted.

    In 1e and 2e, and also stated in parts of WFHW, "Terrestrial Exalted" equals Dragon-Blooded, much in...
