    Health would seem to be the relevant Purview here, covering both healing and sickness.

    replied to September Update: Check out the Devas!
    The name of Yamaraja's fourth PSP, Yidam, pretty much confirms he's a member of a Buddhist Pantheon - Yidam is a Buddhist term referring to a type of deity said to be manifestations of Buddhahood or enlightened mind. It's sometimes translated as "tutelary deity" or "meditational deity".

    Given we can match Yamaraja's other three PSPs to other pantheons, it's likely Yidam is the Palas PSP, pointing to them being the Buddhist Pantheon....

    No, not yet. It's in the last stage of production, but it's been there for some time.

  • Need to be careful here: there's Minotaur the mythical figure, who was an Apis, and there's Minotaur the Skin Dancer totem, who's never been given a direct tie to the Apis. We know the mythical Minotaur was responsible for the Minotaur myths, and therefore the form the Skin Dancer totem takes, but no other connection's ever been suggested.

    The totem could maybe be a fallen Apis, but his associations don't seem particularly Apis-like - the man that becomes the beast, the sentient that seeks animalistic power.

    replied to Who's footing the bill for the dragonblooded?
    Are they, though? We don't know. Not as regards 3e.

    Vance has remarked that the Yozi had reason to worry about the consequences of creating their own Exalted, and evidence of those consequences in the form of the Chosen of the Incarnae and the Dragons....

    The Infernals Kickstarter preview introduced the concept of the Law of Diminishment: those who give of themselves to Exalt others are lessened thereby, regardless of the type of Exaltation. Much of that preview is no longer valid, but the current devs are still using the Law of Diminishment.

    Since the Exigence involves a god giving of themselves to create a champion, the Law kicks in....

    replied to how was the usurpation successful?
    I note in regards to this that canon so far in 3e is that the Lunars were on the losing side of the Usurpation, chased to the edge of the world. No details, just the broad strokes.

    In addition, DotFA isn't canon for 3e's First Age....

    I'd go with the newly dead not really being able to affect the living directly.

    a) Not easily, but it's possible via physical materialisation, telekinesis, or a couple of other powers.
    b) Typically, that sort of thing doesn't make physical interaction any easier.
    c) The only recourse most people have against wraiths is to use a ritual to drive a wraith away or keep them from entering. There's no special defense against wraithly attacks, and no way to attack them without supernatural abilities or magic.
    d) Only people with Witness of Death, unless they're using some power to make themselves heard in the living world.
    e) Anyone. This one's emulating...

    Also, the Scroll of Errata has a bit more detail on the Fomorian Dream, namedropped in that post.

    replied to Ask the Devs
    In Ink Monkeys, where the idea was first introduced, the idea was that the Exaltation itself did the choosing, independent of the Deathlords and Neverborn. Some of the early Abyssals had destroyed the Monstrances holding their Exaltations (or had them destroyed for them), before subsequently getting killed, leaving their Exaltations unbound, free to choose their own host....

    Thing is, layout seems to remain pretty constant, regardless of a book's length. Where it gets lengthy is apparently with things with new or special formats, like Beckett's Jyhad Diary, which doesn't apply to Arms. And since it wasn't a Kickstarted reward, it's not going to KS backers first, but straight to DriveThru.

    So I'd hazard we can expect it end of October, beginning of November at the latest....

    replied to 3E Infernals - Change of Direction
    One thing that caught my eye was Vance's description of the origin of Abyssal Exaltations:




    Jumping off that, a GSP inherits the power and legacy of a shining sun-king, but one that has been corrupted by the power of the Yozi.

    They are Lawgivers, but their law is not that of the Sun, or that of death. Their law is that of the creators of the world, those who first shaped things into being. "Hell's Lawgivers?" Perhaps so they may be called, but they know the truth of whence their law comes.

    And let us be honest, there is something...

    Vance has said he doesn't think any of 2e's additions to the Yozi roster need to be dropped, so no need to worry on that score....
