    replied to Artifact Creation resource costs
    And don't forget that Resource costs are kind of deliberately vague and squishy anyway. The background is more about your standard of living, capital assets, and cashflow. If you've gotten enough magical materials together for your artifact, you're probably not going to be held back by a single, measly Resources X purchase.

    replied to I wish we had more old-man exalts
    Quite! We've reference three older Solars, all of them men (two or three of them white but who's counting). Where are the old ladies? Heck, where are the non-Solars? I ask because I think the two are related.

    Dace, Yurgen, and maybe Sand(?) went to the Angry Dad school of action-heroism, where Liam Neeson and Bruce Willis are emeritus professors. A school that's about 50 years behind the rest of the world in terms of gender equality. And to hazard a guess, I think it comes down to something @Heavy_Arms said above; Yurgen isn't a fuddy-duddy who is living a quiet, domestic retirement...

    See, I'm torn. On the one hand, this is exactly the right tone for Exalted. On the other, maybe a bit on the silly side for episodic TV? Not that silly is badwrongfun, just that it just makes it hard to have continuity, rising stakes, etc. for a season or more. See also Kung Fu Hustle.

    That said, "Trebuchet Ammunition Day" is now part of all my Tiger Warrior Training curricula going forward....

    Random idea: Extended rolls w/ Decay

    I was flipping through an OPP book and came across a system (I can't find the reference now) that worked like an extended roll, except that dice showing 1s were deducted from the pool after each roll.

    Which I thought was neat, and made me think about extended rolls in Exalted.

    Extended rolls (3e Core, p.189) are typically used to determine if a player will succeed in time. They're good for something like a footrace (first to 10 successes wins) where each roll represents an independent unit of effort that sums linearly to the final outcome.

    What I like about...

    In this context, "development" has a specific, technical meaning. It's pre-pre-production, and involves things like initial story ideation, first draft of a script, market research, and roughing out a budget. It takes months or even years and there is often a *lot* of waiting.
