    Like, say, a daiklaive? Any daiklaive is basically a sword, and swords are fairly common, but every daiklaive is still a unique piece of work created with considerable investment of resources, magic materials, and exalted effort. Why would that not apply to Bracers of Universal Crafting too?

    And heck, why couldn't a pair have mythic backstory ? Created by a legendary smith to be used by an infamous theif, and or famous artist, in some inspiring act of daring do or some such.

    Now, the devs have indicated that without the impetus of life-or-death battles, exalted are less likely

  • MoEP:Dragon-blooded, page 68: "In the savannas of the Southeast, around the Sandy River and the fertile plains of Chaya."

    ​CoCD:East places Chaya and the Sandy River Region to the south east of the Scavenger Lands, apparently near the three lakes that are now near the northern tip of the Dreaming Sea - west of Champoor....

    pg 39: "Located on the heights between Cinnabar and the city walls." Yeah, it is just one mention, but it is the very first line under the heading.

    ​But see also pages 26-27, the Flooding Hills, for a description of the city topology; notably placements of hills and canals. The eastern end of the city is dominated by Cinnabar Hill, Bastion Hill, and Sentinel's Hill....

    Afik, [Ex2] does not exactly say. The Compasses of Celestial Directions indicate that the Wyld and Underworld have no connection. Wyld Pockets and the like don't exist in the Underworld (but no mention of what does). And when the Balorian conquest dissolved the edges of Creation into the Wyld, it is said that their reflection in the Underworld simply disappeared.

    ​So, while there is no explicit mention, I'd say that where Creation does not exist to be reflected, there is just no there in the Underworld for anything to be. What happens if you try to enter not-there (or how you might...

    replied to Loom Server Migration?
    Not exactly. Manual of Exalted Power:Sidereals page 125. Primordials, Yozi, Neverborn, are always Outside of Fate, as are all Alchemicals, Third and Second Circle demons, Deathlords, Hekatonkhires, and Noble Fair Folk, and some Behemoths and creatures native to the farther Wyld.

    However, lesser creatures from out of fate --ghosts, first circle demons, lesser fair folk, and such-- may or may not fall within fate's purview when In Fate (storyteller's decision, case by case).

    ​In addition, Abyssal Exalted had charms which could temporarily place them Outside of Fate, while

    Oh, y​eah, it's not explicitly called "Virtue Channelling" at the point the rules are written. Using keywords to make searching easier? What's that?...

  • Well,
    even with the mutations removed, Raksi will still unknowingly be subject to the Great Curse -- specifically The Curse of the Heartless Weasle (Conviction), according to Compass:East. So, yes, the lack of empathy is indeed part and parcel of her madness, and surpressing her conviction will push her towards a backslide.

    replied to How to promote a God with no domain?
    Uhm, no. Not as far as I know. Where are you getting this?

    The creation of new things prompts the spawning of a spirit to oversee them.* [RoGDI, pg 17] This does not appear to be the case for the vacation of an extant domain​.

    When a position is vacated, the Celestial Court / Terrestrial Bureaucracy must assign a replacement by promotion or transfer. Ideally this happens as soon as an investigation reveals why reports are not being filed, in practice it may take some time for some vacancies to be identified. (Likely not for the Yellow River.) Likewise when a domain...

    replied to How to promote a God with no domain?
    First, ensure the river's old god is not coming back - and convince the Grey River's god too (indeed all of the river gods of the scavenger lands; the Yellow's god was most likely the head of a major spirit court, after all ). What are the circumstances behind the demise? For gods, death is not usually permanent, unless slain by another god, ghost eating technique, or such. Which can mean that "Bringing the murderer to justice" might be a useful side quest. At the very least, to prove that your circle did not arrange to have the position vacated.

    As to how, well, assignment,...
