  • Mortal NPCs can be an asset because the fairly mundane lives of someone who lived hundreds of years ago can make for an interesting contrast to their little Exalted bubble.

    Like maybe their favourite nanny lost a child and she quietly putting all that energy into nurturing them instead, one of the staff could have been faking literacy for years by simply remembering what lots of different words look like. Obviously avoid taking it to grimdark/dung ages extremes, a little research can go a long way here.

  • Note it was one Sidereal who made all 5 and she did more to improve the Dragon-Blooded than 300 Solars did during the 3000+ years when they worked for them.

    This was an actual question that someone I know asked their group.

    A player who backed the Kickstater could have explained that Nightingale was a legacy MA that people voted to come back by popular demand.
    A player with experience of previous editions could have explained that using your music to kill and maim people is more appropriate to Abyssals.
    Even the potentially prickly explaination that Exalted is not a dungeon crawler and that "how do I kill things with this skill!" is a narrow way of looking at things.

    Instead they got a rant about Holden...

    How the bard archetype is split between Solar Performance and Silver-Voiced Nightingale.
    It is not intuative from the corebook alone why this seperation exists and why Solars seem to require a martial art or evocations to kill with music....

    This has nothing to do with how Vance or Minton engage with people, the fact they try to engage with the core book beyond the parts they personally wrote is great.

    Oh I would not begrudge anyone using that element in their backstory. Its just drawing from some very patriarchal ideas, particularly when we are talking about the typical starting character who recently graduated secondary school....

    Single biggest source of complexity in the game for me is the fact that charm cascades tend to have an unspoken design thesis that often necessitates a more experienced member of the community to help a new player navigate the gap between their character concept and whats in the book.

    Its gotten worse in Ex3 because of the enduring ill-will towards the former developers, so inquiring about design intent can be like stepping on a landmine.
