    That makes a lot of sense. Is this backed up in the written rules anywhere, or just a ruling on your part? Not questioning the authenticity, I just want to be clear for my GM (and curious if we missed it somewhere) ...

    If there's a withering attack that targets and hits multiple opponents, does the attacker gain the initiative from the damage dealt from all targets? The Smoke Wolf in the Quickstart adventure has one of these attacks and they went from 8 initiative to 53 initiative in a single round and we weren't sure if we were doing it wrong or if it's really that strong of an attack.

    As always, I love your stories so much. I think you're giving people as much screentime as makes sense and any time you're not, it's because of the decisions of the audience, and that's on us. I am consistently impressed by your ability to meld our input and make the story roll with it (the dual identity thing being a prime example).

    I always imagined the Solar boss to be decked out in magnificent artifacts of resplendent power. Also, for dramatic effect, their anima is ALWAYS at Bonfire if not Iconic....

    replied to What Breaks If......
    I think the core book explicitly gives an example of this in regards to trivial opponents, so I don't think it breaks anything.

    Also I'm sad this thread fell away, I think it's super useful as a topic. So while others might feel otherwise, I thank you for necroing it....

  • Well, half the design promise of the Exigent book is this "Charm Matrix" they've been hyping for forever. And I can say that the current devs have restated their intent to give real effort to charm design illustration. But I'm not a dev and I don't have a quote for you (Nishkriya is down) so you'll either have to take my word for it, ask the question in the Ask the Devs thread, to continue to be disappointed until the Exigents book comes out.

    To be clear I would be disappointed as well if we didn't get more guidelines as well in that book. But I wasn't surprised by what...

  • It doesn't take you step by step through balancing powers and effects, just guidelines on artifact dots, numbers of evocations, and a few other things. Designing evocations will likely be the same as designing charms, which will have step by step rules in the Exigents book... which is a few books further out than it used to be....

    Awesome! So the implication of this is that some of these events you refer to in passing for any given artifact were made up on the spot while writing it? If so I think it's been brilliantly handled and I commend you both on your ability to make up a proper noun on the fly....

    Using Arms of the Chosen as an example, you guys are spitting out a hundred mini plot-hooks per page with secret armies, legendary heroes, forgotten kingdoms, etc. I don't expect 99% of them to EVER get expanded upon because that's not why they're introduced. My question is, do you guys keep track of all ones you've created just as a footnote? Do you have a list somewhere of Kingdoms, Heroes, Behemoths, etc that you use to make sure you're not accidentally making up the same place twice?

    I'm not asking to see the list or anything, I'm just wondering how much is off the cuff as you...

    But that didn't answer the question, do they Clash or does A have to deal with C's defense?...

    1. 2 Solars (A and B) and an Abyssal (C) are Fighting.
    2. A and C both have the same initiative and thus act on the same tick.
    3. A decides to attack C to initiate a Clash to try to surpass C's amazingly huge Defense score.
    4. C decides to attack B because they don't WANT to deal with a Clash because his Defense score is amazingly huge.
    Do A and C end up Clashing or not?

    It seems that if it's optional then why would a foe with a superior Defense ever opt in to it?

    I'm amiable to other people's opinions, but since i love your writing I'm fine with adding a chapter about making one more detour, for munitions. If there's any strong feelings towards preparing for the showdown, consider my vote a swing vote. I'm just making sure this story continues to get visibility for the wonderful craftsmanship that it is!

    Neither that I'm aware of. If you try to search via #exalted you'll end up with a lot of religious posts, in my experience. @Ex3 used to be pretty big when the book came out, but no one maintained that....

    What is involved in hosting it? I'm genuinely interested, but know next to nothing about what that would entail logistically and financially.

    Edit: I also see 2 emails in that license, which one is you (first or second)?

    Yes. Instead of Artifacts simply having a set of innate powers, these powers unlock (via evocations, which function like charms that you buy with xp) as your bond with your artifact.

    It represents the relationship you have with your weapon or armor and how it's not just some cool thing you picked up, instead it's YOUR weapon or armor, that's been by your side through thick and thin. The Dragon-blooded take it a step further and place importance on generations of your family using that artifact. It was your mothers, and your grandfathers, and your great-grandmothers and your great-great-grandmothers,...

    He explicitly referred to Lunar society in 2e not 3e so what Vance talks about in the Ask thread about the subject is probably inapplicable here. Although, to your point I'm not sure Lunars really had a cohesive society in 2e either....
