    Awesome interview guys, very insightful on a ton of stuff.
    It was great.

    Though Neall did make a few errors, but I chalk that up with his brain being swamped by tons of myth stuff working on this for so long.

    They would be out of the reach of the Silver Pack, so they would be A) Casteless and B) have no reason to go with their cause. For one thing I don't think Sidereals are dumb enough to kill a Lunar which Exalted in Heaven. If anything I can see it more likely for them to enroll them. Also another thing about Heaven's Dragons. They should have no beef with the Silver Pack and the Silver Pack with them. They started living in heaven way before the Shogunate was established and thus wouldn't have their practices like the Wyld Hunt. So I'd think they be one of the groups that Lunars would be non hostile...

    That depends on if Umbrals are from the Divine Revolution in the first place.

    Edit: ah shouldn't make a convo here. My bad...

    Then that just leaves Soulsteel.

    Which i doubt will ever have an easy answer. They really dug themselves that hole when designing Alchemicals on that part...

    Soon. That's basically all the answer they can give you, they aren't doing release dates. Both books are nearly completed, so it's not that long

    I see, makes sense but a pity, well that's just how I am anyhow.

    Kinda Related to this, will Elements specific to the Underworld be returning. As the Underworld is no longer a Creation expy I doubt it other then to tie in the Liminals more to Underworld metaphysically which may be neat but maybe also a little unneeded and forced in depending on your guys ideas for them....

    Are their Demesnes and Hearthstones based around Getimian and Liminal Essence? Or would you slide them with Sidereal and Abyssal stuff? Personally I'd be interested if the former was true but that's me anyhow.

    That actually has me curious, do we know anything of how old Yoruban worship was structured? I honestly don't know much about the theological stuff about the Orisha other then just how it relates in modern day. I'm curious on how it was actually set down and how the religion actually interacted with the people. Just curious since I really have no idea...

    Well the thing is being worshipped, isn't really important in whether your gonna be in a pantheon or not. The reason why Glamourweaver brought up the TDD is that we know for a fact they weren't worshipped as Gods. It be weird if they did, because there sources after all were written by Christian monks. Now theres always the argument that they were worshipped before the coming of Christianity, but the problem is that we have literally no idea about the Irish Gods of Pre-Christianity. Everything and everything about them in Scion came from one place, and that was the medieval manuscripts written...

    Yazatas are gonna be in the Scion Companion. They are definitely a thing in setting, they were mentioned a couple of times in Hero

    Lathe isnt part of Autochthon, its detailed in the Vore and is in Creation. Its basically the corpse of one of the dead Primordials whose ghosts become the Neverborn I think.

    Well along with Palanquin theres a lot of other interesting stuff in the Dreaming Sea, a city built underneath the sea. An eternally dark and shadowed port, an empire of sorcerers, the walled and segregated city of Indian themed DBs. Lots of goog stuff.

    As of now, a book is currently in development called Across the Eight Directions which will cover a lot of setting and provide a ton of material. Sadly it's still deep in development, so you probably cant wait for that. I also recommend Scavenger Sons, much of the good setting stuff in Creation stems from that. Though note since its...

    Is there a scholarly answer in-universe on why everything has an anima? I know from a game perspective it's just there for the Exalted but I'm just wonder what a person in setting would explain why every living thing has an invisible bubble around them and what purpose it has, if it even has a purpose and not a side effect for something else.

  • So the Brood are now intelligent Draugr+, awesome. This is very interesting, if anything the Claiming presents of process that was talked about in the core and TY but wasnt really elaborated on. That as a Vampire goes on they change, and become something more monstrous.

    Also interested on Covenant specific bloodlines that aren't locked by clan. Since that adds another layer of mysticism to the.Vampiric Covenants other then their blood magic. I hope that turns out well.

    Well for one thing, the context of divine predators between the games is completely different for one thing. They are similar given the original idea for Exalted but between those two they have slightly different definitions on what they mean. Similar but ultimately is different.

    Um about Charm sets, just reminding everyone that they aren't actually a thing in setting outside for like Sidereals and Alchemicals. They are abstractions, expressions of what they can do with their Essence. Whether they were changed from how it was in the First is a little bit irrelevant since it actually isnt a thing they would be aware of. Now I'm not saying that their powers didn't change, it most likely did. But let me ask why would it?

    About them changing their Castes, you know from the sounds of I don't think their First Age Castes are any different from their post Ursurptation...

    1: Can Castes change between Reincarnations? Like say if in a past life you were a Twilight Sorcerer but in the current you are an Eclipse? Does that happen? Or is that only a thing with Lunars with their natural state in not having Castes.

    2. Before the current era. How common was the knowledge of Solar Bonds among modern Lunars, since Solars have been gone for so long was it that unless one specifically asked about it they were unaware that such a bond existed between them? If so when the Solars were released did that surprise the modern Lunars in any particular way?

    Thx, yeah I figured if it wasn't in Exigent it would probably be in Sid. Wondering, how much detail do you think you guys will go into Gods in Exigent? While most of the book does seem like it will mostly homebrew advice, will there at least be more of an expansion on them from what we can get from the Core?...

    Will Exigents go in detail on how exactly the Celestial Bureaucracy works, like how a god's purviews is attached to job, how they get and are assigned to those jobs and how they can lose them and what that would be like, and other stuff like that? I'm wondering since the concept of divinity in Exalted in regards to everything below the Incarna is a little bit hard to grasp.

    Nothing, just a metaphor of phrase, was not meaning to be taken completely literal. Sorry about that.

    The thing about how destructive the Sword can be is that it can basically initiate a world wide bombardment of of damage that no one can resist. Also I do think it does leave collateral damage seeing how it was described in Arms, just not typically what we would imagine. Like constant tornadoes of fire for example.

    In any case I agree its probably not that easy using the sword mainly seeing the Empress never used in her wars after the Contagion meaning A) there are certain...
