  • They are more like a representation of what the specific exalt splat is. For Solars, that would be new characters, because that's what all Solars are - even those that appeared before breaking of Jade Prison have only maybe a few years' age advantage over all others. For other exalt types however the representative characters are more varied. So, Mnemon, Sesus Nagezzer or Tepet Arada are no more (or less) an example of what Dragonblooded players can become than Leviathan, Ma-Ha-Suchi or Raksi are for Lunar players, and Chejop Kejak is for Sidereals....

    If it is indeed a fan-made product, and not an official one (as it seems it is), it would have been nice to actually mention that somewhere.

    Perhaps. Not every nuance of the Creation can be clearly mapped to a specific mechanic. Nor can everything be represented in the form of clear numerical bonuses. You can think it means the system fails to represent those cases. My take is that narrative representation is still a representation. If the system tells me that orichalcum artifacts are the best match for Solar powers, then that's enough for me. I don't need to see it represented as some numbers or clearly defined advantages to believe it is true.

    Also, notice, that one case that does exist and is clearly mentioned (thematical...

    Not having a strict mechanic representation for it does not mean the effect does not exist. Just as the case of some MMs being better (or even required) for artifacts with specific thematics is not something that is clearly defined in a strict mechanical way, but is still there, and should not be ignored.

    Basically, you are ignoring large parts of worldsetting because they are "fluff" and not "mechanics", in an argument that revolves around worldsetting, not mechanics.

    You may think that people playing Solars may not have any special reason to prefer...

    I'm relatively sure that the Solars coming from all the regions Bull has conquered would be significantly more likely to oppose him than join him....

    Oh, haven't noticed the place of battle has changed. If so, i'm withdrawing all my previous complains. Both previous editions made all his story a massive headache, something impossible to be treated seriously. If that's no longer the case, then all is good with the world again.

    Now even if he's limited to the north (as he should be), he is still enough of a danger for Realm to treat him seriously and send Tepets against him. Being a Solar alone is enough, but in case it wouldn't be, a reminder of Jochim should have done the trick. And definitely after the fall of the Tepet Legions,...

    The problem with Bull and estimating his impact on anything was always in this not having any sense in the first place.

    Just a cursory look at a map, comparing the place where the core of his domain is, and where the whole war that involved the Tepets took place shows the problem. namely, Bull and his horde seem to have an absolutely absurd reach, able to project power on unimaginable distances.

    As such, we should not even be thinking about the cities in the North. Even the inhabitants of western archipelagos should quake in their boots, afraid that Bull may show up at...
