    Regarding cantata of empty voices, does it only target enemies of the caster? It just sounds too good to be true.

    Goblet of Loyalty

    Hoping for some feedback on artifact rating for this idea:

    A goblet which grants a minor tie of loyalty in anyone who drinks from it the first time towards the attuned owner. If the drinker has already a tie of loyalty towards the owner, then the tie is increased one level the first time they drink from the goblet.

    Just watched the first sherlock holmes (guy ritchie) movie where there is a ritual where everyone has to drink from a goblet to signal their allegiance to the new chapter master in a "secret society". Thought it would be neat to have that goblet/cup...

    How rare are sorcerers? 1 in 1000? 1 in 100,000? 1 in 1,000,000?

    Good points! Not sure to be honest. Do workings stop working when the creator dies? I do believe I have seen some of the devs say that, though im not sure. Again "super crops" being super prevalent does defeat the magic is rare theme in exalted. Maybe this super crop needs special rituals or something else that limits its prevalence?...

    I dont disagree that farming techniques and tools is a very important part of the reason for why we in the real world produce so much food and that distribution/logistics is extremely important for everyone to enjoy the large output in certain markets.

    But lets just do some math on this super crop - lets say the supernatural augmentation is of caloric content and then run a few examples. You would agree that no increased effort is needed to produce the same amount of wheat prior to a supercrop that only changes the caloric content magically, plus enhances the robustness of the crops?...

    Godspeed on getting rid of the headache!

    Ah, alright now I understand where your coming from. In the case here the farmers would be under protection from a solar looking to boost the food output from his farms.

    The results of this from an economic standpoint, if the wheat is milled and sold, is that the local wheat prices would decline signficantly over time if enough farming land is used with this crop. And it would either subsidize meat production and/or be exported to take advantage of the price differences in the local market and export markets. This would enable...

    This doesent really do anything for what the idea of a "super crop" is meant to achieve. Significant food production increase to decrease the need for farmers in a society or just create a large surplus to be exported/used for soldiers. As you mentioned in one of the links you provided for the war topic, without a productive agriculture you cant effectively rally many troops over long periods of time.
    Would be more interesting to hear your thoughts on the likely effiency gain from having the mentioned crop in a kingdom.

    Thanks for the three sisters info, learned something...

    Hmm, by using those two workings would one be able to match modern farming output for such a super wheat?

    As in this new super wheat will mutate? (could possibly do something to hinder that though)

    Interesting, wouldnt this new super wheat still fall under the wheat god`s purview though? Or maybe it would be shared with the weed gods. Ick!...

    Super Crop!

    My char is planning on taking wheat and crossing it with a fast growing weed that tolerates a lot of punishment using a terrestrial ambition 2 working. That should give the new crop the best from wheat (highly nutritious seeds) and the weed (fast growth and tolerance for bad soil and weather).

    Then taking that new specimen and giving its nutrition a supernatural boost with a terrestrial ambition 3 working. (making it closer to lembas bread/elven bread from LotR)

    How much more effective would wheat agriculture become with this super wheat, compared to normal wheat agriculture?...
