  • I mean...it seems like if you wanted, you could just make mucking up some other organization's operations cost some points or be a thing to do with your policy cycle. But speaking as an ST... I wouldn't ever keep track of points and stuff for non-PC organizations. I would just represent their attacks as Crises or adding to the Crisis or Inefficiency tracks.

    In my games, ghosts aren't p-zombies. Because orclike "morally ok to murder" baddies are no fun! It's much more fun to look at the ghost as a person and try to help them (usually resolving their issues so they can "move on" to reincarnation).

    Also? Reincarnation isn't equivalent to Oblivion. Even for mortals, Lethe isn't perfect! You'll retain Past Life Memories sometimes. Strange dreams of another life. Subconscious biases. Creation has room for fated loves and hatreds recurring through history, for gurus and sorcerers who unlock the secrets of the ancient memories...

  • Remember the Aspect Books from 1E?

    I want a mini-book for each Dragonblooded House.

    Also, I'd love to see less weird clunky digital art and more traditional pieces. 3E's visual style is nowhere near as good as it was in the last two editions, camel-toe sorceresses notwithstanding.

    Yeah, if you're writing a "die for power," thing, you should be getting enough power to be worth dying for. An exalt sacrificing their life for something oughta be at least the equivalent of a nuke. Massive explosions, rains of fire and blood, horrendous plagues, the sun being blotted out by the moon, hellish winds grinding castles to dust, tidal waves made of scorpions...

    ...a mote drip is pretty underwhelming.

    Edit: Also? For this sorta thing I usually just say, "and you die at the end of the scene,' not "pay HLs your Twilight can just heal back."...

  • Honestly, I've been unimpressed with a lot of the 3E art. Lots of it has this weird feel like a badly computer animated cartoon. Looking at the human faces, they seem like something out of a video game from ten years ago. They seem...posed. There's no sense of motion to the figures, they're just sitting there. Give me some movement! Give me some sense of action! Say what you will about Melissa Uran, but her gestural work is solid!

    Also...they're lacking in a lot of the stylistic influences that I want to see in Exalted. Look at that background castle! Where's the Japanese or Hindu...

  • I'm fine with them becoming a battle group (though I would prefer swarmform for that)! But if we let you make a dozen short term copies of yourself (which, Sun Wukong or no, I am not about, I don't like the feel), only one of 'em oughta have your fancy magic axe.

    This axe thing cuts to the heart of why I prefer personae style clone charms or none at all. Anytime you duplicate yourself in a game that includes a semblance of balance, you run into the need for the duplicates to be weaker than you to balance them, with a sort of inverse ninja principle. A battle group of you isn't fifty...

  • Some thoughts on Lunar Cloning:

    1. Lunar battle group forming charms ought to be "I turn into a swarm of bats," or "I turn into a pack of wolves," or "I turn my hairs into a small army of angry monkeys." They shouldn't be "I make twelve more of me."

    2. To the extent that Lunars are able to clone themselves, we shouldn't be looking to the Solar "The Flash" charms for inspiration. We should be looking to the Mirror Flag charms! A Solar can create a multitude of strangers within herself; a Lunar ought to be able to divide...
