    And that is why I suggested they could give their helpful answers and not look back as an alternative to not posting because of the chance that there will be significant negative comments about his post. That such a strategy is impossible to execute is something I find highly unlikely. Though they might not want to do it for various reasons, that is another matter and up to them really.

    Or just create a topic with the latest they have been working on/status updates/whatever they desire really. No need to come back and wade through the comments.

    All im saying that there...

    Alright, lets take a look at the topics on the forum. "what is up with the exalted line?" is one topic. Given the history of this forum that topic is close to being mathematically guaranteed to have severe negative opinions and worse for the devs. Then we have topics like these:

    Improvised Storytelling - Experiences and Ideas (?)
    Dragon-Blooded families, lifespans and generations
    Ask a question, get an answer
    Lunar Knacks
    Defending against exalted assassins

    There will always be ppl who will disagree about something, regardless of what it is. That wont change unless there are put in place draconic forum rules banning all negative opinions.


    So why dont you and also the devs just ignore the negative if its too exhausting to deal with it and only engage with the positive? (I personally find it quite easy to just skim past replies to my topics that arent useful and ignore it)

    For there is quite a bit of positive stuff on the forum and there isnt any requirement for you to reply nor read all that is being said here, especially...

    Would anyone create the 500 mile grid on this map? Pretty please.



    Its super handy, as 500x500 miles is equivalent to 1.2 the size of modern france. Which helps give an idea of what such an area can contain....

    Regarding BGs attacking Characters, how is the withering damage applied when its more than the character has in initiative?

    Like say a BG attacks Character and deals 10 damage. Character has 3 initiative prior to this attack. Is he crashed and at -7 Initiative and open for lethal damage from the BG next round? Or is the initiative above 0 subtracted from the damage and any excess damage applied to the Character`s health track?

    started a topic DB Charm Modules - For quickly creating DB NPCs

    DB Charm Modules - For quickly creating DB NPCs

    Now that Crumplepunch`s DB homebrew is close to being done and has charms for every ability ill be starting my work on creating charm packages from the different abilities. Making it really easy for a ST to decide what a DB NPC should be good at and then just be able to pick a few charm packages to create a more or less fully fleshed out DB NPC in a few minutes.

    Can promise that the progress will be glacial and most likely will I just focus on battle abilities and a few other to start with.

    Still need to create summaries for the different load outs about what they roughly...

    Your all right that those avenues would be easier and faster.

    The problem here is to create this army more or less in secret. Which would enable a lightning attack on the initial targets. Blitzkrieg so to speak.

    So hiring thousands of mercenaries will most likely be picked up by any decent spy in the area and alert important people in the region. Mercenaries have tendency to be loyal to cash first and foremost, which could open up for some nasty surprises.

    Freeing slaves directly is a way to do it,...

    Absolutely! Some of my posts might have given the impression of join or die suggestion with no fine tuning, but it would be more carefully done in game.

    Less of a "I just freed you guys, best you follow me around now" ... and more like a "I freed you. I am a smart guy with ambition and you have this opportunity to be part of something great. You can get yourself a role in my plans that entail steady pay, potential riches and a skill set few can dream of. Yes, there will be danger but it wont be that different from the odds stacked against you as an ex slave by trying...

    The different breed`s venom was a neat addition, it literally makes for several demons with that one write up.

    Valid points Nalak42.

    For the time part, it could be cut down to 3 years.

    I agree that the conditioning of the slaves would have to be carefully orchestrated to not falling into several of the pitfalls mentioned here, by you and others. Such as having the offer come across as you either do this or die.

    Playing up the intimacy they have towards the one freeing them as a great person/leader and utilizing that to instill other beneficial intimacies or weaken other intimacies they have with arguments they should trust/accept because of their views of him....

    Again thanks to everyone for their feedback. It has given me several ideas and issues to contemplate if this occurs in our game.

    You might be right on the life altering task, so ignore that part. It could be changed to fit with whatever flies under the serious task category. I disagree with some of your points (the application of the anti-master intimacy and therefore making any attempt to persuade them to accept a role as a soldier as unacceptable influence being one) and we are unlikely to agree here it seems so ill leave it at that.
