    replied to Where are All the Druggie Exalted?
    Solar: As a scion of a powerful Dragonblood gens, you were expected to exalt early, but due to shenanigans didn't, and so became scorned as trash. However after years of bullying and deprivation, you managed to exalt anyway, though you are still constantly underestimated because you hide the nature and extent from your Dragonblood peers for reasons.

    Lunar: You are the Solar's pet monster who later learned to take human form. Shut up. Yes you are.

    Sidereal: You are a nobody from the boondocks whom was never expected to amount to much, but due to a fateful encounter exalt...

    Noting that it does so by a one point increase to the mount's hardness (so crashing is still a problem), would not artefact barding do the same?
    (re: Carnelian Phoenix, Arms of the Choosen)

    Or just breed mounts with natural hardness. Hmm... Yeddim have a nice hardness. Elephant/Mammoth too. (Sadly riding hawks don't.) ... Are Riding Bears a thing yet?

    Better yet, did Simhata make it into the "antagonists" section?...

    Also, when do, if any, Awareness Charms count as "scrying magics"? Some of the Dragonblood charms operate by displacing senses over substantial distances. Namely: Horizon Spanning Echoes, Serpent-of-the-Depths Discernment, and possibly Sense Riding Technique....

    The Solar Charm Cards were rather handy for tracking charms in play. Are there are plans to produce Charm Cards for the Dragonblooded set too?

    If so, please include visual cues for the Element, Balanced, and Aura keywords to make it easy to manage Elemental Auras.
    Corner-icons or some such.
    In addition, what about the pilot's anima flux? Considering that the pilot cannot be targetted by area effects, but can project them via applicable charms, does the fusilage block or channel the pilot's aura?

    Well, it is should syncronise local data with cloud storage to ensure you have the latest version of the app. However, all that seems to happen for me is that it just resets everything to default settings.

    ​(I have no issues with purchased dice not showing, but have only installed the app on one device, using Bluestacks emulation.)...

    replied to 3e Dragonblooded Firearms charms
    Although we don't have the complete list, all charms in the preview do have an Element entry in their keyword list, including Balanced charms. This seems to be a thing you should do also.

    Partial ​Exception: Elusive Dragon-God Dispersion places the keywords in the body text, as it changes effect depending on the aura aspect in which it is used.

    Nope, 1s are not negative successes or anything, they are normally just a failure. Their only significance is that a botch occurs if you have no successes and some 1s appearing....

    There are charms later that interact specifically with Hearthmates. You'll know the difference when you get to them....

  • Indeed. The "Multiple Aspects" box at the end of the keywords section (right before the Archery charms) explains it. It also means you can see through only one type of obscurant at a time, which could be an issue with, say being underwater with smoke from burning ships above....

    "Me Lad", or "Me Laddie." It's not quite the same tang of noble deference, but about the right tone of condesention....

  • It is comparable to combining Fist of Iron Technique and Excellent Solar Brawl; for one less mote, you get to reroll-sixes-until-banished on all damage rolls rather than ignore essence+intimacy soak on withering damage rolls.

    ​Compared to Ex2's Become the Hammer, though, hello yes, this is the new dragonblooded level!...

    Nice! Indicating the Balanced keyword along with Elements and Aura would be helpful. A scale pan symbol would seem appropriate.

  • Oh, right, they only had 3 favoured in Ex2. Yes, they now have 5 Aspect Abilities and 5 Favoured Abilities;​ and indeed over all the character creation process for Essence 2 Dragonblooded is pretty much the same as for an Essence 1 Solar. Well, the Aspect Abilities are preselected by Aspect but they do get a few more specialties, merits, and bonus points to start with.
    Only barely. A little less power for level, maybe, and there is a smaller mote pool to play with, but the Elemental Aura system looks promising and they do start at Essence 2 for every ability (versus having one supernal).

  • And this time it is crunchy.

    Oh, there is fluff in the chapter fictions; showcasing some more nice slices of life for the signature kinship. Ah, also Mnemon gets some action with Novia ... blood and sorcery in Jiara!

    On to character creation, anima banners, traits, and charms. ... so many archery charms ... athletics, awareness, brawl, bureauocracy, craft, dodge, integrety, investigation, and... that's all for now. All? So much to digest....

  • Previously on Exalted, House Mnemon was mainly known for producing Martial Artists and Sorcerers, for no apparent reason, but although it wasn't a central theme, temple building and manse repair was a mentioned sideline of the house economics.

    ​The refocus means that House Mnemon is now mainly known for piety and craftsmanship, with design and construction of temples being a foundation for their house economy.

    replied to What are your Outcaste groups?
    There are underground regions that may have little to do with the Mountain Folk, such as the caverns of Jau Dei (a Ragara garisonned satrapy). Or is this idea specifically about a (literally) underground outcaste group in the Realm?...

    That's a Sidereal charm: Neighbourhood Relocation Scheme.
