    They are on pages 296 and 297 of the core, but the update in Arms of the Chosen exists for a reason. The Sapphire, Emerald, and Adamant evocation types, mentioned in the core versions, were never implemented as intended....

    The flashback-to-the-training was a fun and efficient innovation. Well done.

    Missed Episode 2: "My Favorite Game" (had to work today, damnit!). Listening to the Glade battle replay right now.

    Yeap. But only the next. So significant but limited.It is a nice story benefit. No direct mechanical advantage, but plenty of plot hook potential.

    That, I think, is a good goalpost....

    We wish this was so. Rolling to see if your child exalted was a terrible idea, but it was there.

    Manual of Exalted Power: Dragonblooded did include bonuses for the roll in the Breeding Background. It just took Scroll of Errata to find out what this actually entailed. Scroll of Heros also included other means of boosting the roll. So this...

    Ugh. This spawned dragonblooded army breeding camp plans on game discussion boards.

    Let us never do that again....

    The Well-bred merit states that the children are significantly more likely to exalt. What it does not do is give hard numbers on that.

    Should it come up, it will be a narrative decision as to whether or not a character's children exalt; not something left to a roll of the dice. (See the Breeding and Exaltation box on page 143.)

    The only mechanical bonus given are on those bargaining dice rolls. It is fine as it stands....

    replied to Why was Mnemon ever a signature character?
    All of the Signature Dragonbloods in Ex1's aspect books were mid to high essence characters. (Ex1 did not do just 1 signature circle.) They were not "out of the gate" starter characters.

    This may be due different play styles expected between the Solar and Terrestrial campaigns. The Solar Signature characters were all low essence (where Yurgen Kaneko was presented as an essence 1 Dawn.)

    Probably intended for a War for the Throne game, at essence 7, Mnemon certainly held the highest rank, but this was not entirely an outlier.

    Aspect Book Air had...

    Well, that was an interesting way to bring the fang together. A nice motivational package wrapped up with a mystery bow on top.

    Not really.

    The Attunement section of chapter nine mentions making a 40 pound golden sword feel light as a dagger and swift as a breeze. That's crazy heavy for a sword.

    ---

    Wyld Shaping Technique specifies that it takes five talents of magical material to craft a grand daiklaiv. A talent of Jade is a thin slab weighing 68 pounds (about 31 kilograms).

    That would be roughly ten times as massive as an historical zweihander, and that's not factoring in what the material would be alloyed with, whether their is significant lossage in the crafting,...

    I must say, Jon Verrall crafts some nice "military school" and "dojo" style scenes, and splendidly performs the various "sensai" roles to interact with the cast.

    A solidly enjoyable listening experience.

    Indeed, as per "On sorcerers and thaumaturges" section on page 490. Chosen who unlock sorcery automatically gain the Thaumaturgist merit but mortal sorcerers do not.

    This is quite easily overlooked as this is not mentioned in any of Terrestrial Circle Sorcery charms, but only in the Thaumaturgist merit itself...

    Ref: The Realm, page 70, and various mentions of House Tepet scions in What Fire Has Wrought, including the fiction on page 134.
