    Don't eat the heart.

    We may not be a super-devout Immaculate...but we ARE familiar with their theology, and we just slew one of their Anathema. It's fine to offer some thanks to the goddess who helped you slay it...but don't eat its heart to gain its strength. That's...that's not clean strength like eating the heart of a boar or a lion or something. That's tainted strength. That's unholy demonic strength. We don't want any part of that....

    This makes me unbelievably happy.

    Also, I should let you know that Dir-Jal is just part of my Exalted canon now-the PCs are concerned because it's been conquered recently by a Solar rival of theirs who has Survival Supernal......

    I mean, yesss...buuut if your sword is the size of a surfboard then a light tap or applied pressure isn't going to do anything. Because that inertia is a big deal. Now admittedly, it has major downsides-I don't win all my fights with the Compensator! It's slow and a bit unwieldy and if there are trees around it gets tangled in the branches and I get shanked. But it does have its advantages, and one of those advantages is it makes parrying...hard....

    Hmmm...what game is that mentor of yours playing at, I wonder?

    Aww! I love it!

    I'm delighted to see you're getting some mileage out of Iluvar.

    If he's got the bow on him, even better! Put an arrow in her arm while backing away toward the altar. It's probably harder to heal wounds when there are arrows stuck in them...and pulling the arrows out takes time. This way we help Corbitant, move towards the altar, and hopefully continue to hinder our foe without getting close enough for her to murder us.

    I vote...have our cake and eat it too!

    Corbitant didn't get to be warchief by being an idiot. If he thinks these sacred weapons might help...well, then we wont' need this one.

    We're a good shot. I say we utter a quiet prayer and throw our sword like a spear. We put it through her in the hopes she'll drop our new friend...or at least that having a sword stuck through her from behind will slow her down enough for him to take advantage of the opening and get loose...and then dash for the sacred weapons while she's distracted.

    Flurries are our friend!...

    You take a deep breath. This…really wasn’t something you wanted to have to deal with today. The Leopard Gang isn’t as bad as some of the people you could run into in an alley in Nexus…but they’re not good people to run into in an alley either.

    “Leopard, you should get him to give you the name of his supplier. This guy’s just the middleman-if you really wanna protect the neighborhood, you need to track down his source.” You frown, trying to create the impression that this is deep...

  • Go watch a bunch of James Bond movies. Season to taste with other spy flicks.

    Then go watch a bunch of kung fu movies. Throw in Wild Wild West and Men in Black while you're at it.

    Then (particularly if you have any Joybringers in your party) go watch the Bollywood musical Kal Ho Naa Ho. As a servant of the Cerulean Lute myself, I assure you that this is the MOST IMPORTANT STEP.

    You are now prepared to run a game for Sidereals. Enjoy.

  • Fire is associated with trials, with testing, with the scourging away of impurities, with hardening and sharpening. Think about the phrase "trial by fire." Think about the concept of crucibles. Think about "Walk Through the Fire" from the Buffy musical episode. Think of the One Ring forged in the fires of Mount Doom. Think about the phrase "getting fired." Think about firing clay.

    "What Fire Has Wrought," is a shorthand way of saying, "what great hardship and conflict and strife and challenges overcome Have Wrought."

    It's...
