    replied to I'm not your Sifu, I'm your Sensei !
    I think the difference between wuxia and kung fu movies is an important one, and the latter is more relevant to Exalted than the former, but you could customize the setting for wuxia, with varying amounts of work needed depending on what you wanted to do. I would almost certainly run Jibei with wuxia themes because of its clans, swordsmanship schools, and tyrannical government, for example....

  • In this case, I'd say the problems start at Step 1. The Obamacare Repeal is a project and Senate votes are the resource McConnell needed. McConnell just decided to start the project without making 100% sure that he had the resources pull it off, so the Failure Condition in Step 2 is entirely self-inflicted. The negotiations occurred during Step 3 and when they failed, the project collapse....

  • The lives of tens of millions of people came down to a conversation between McConnell and McCain. We can laugh about it now because of how badly McConnell fucked it up, but if he'd offered something McCain wanted badly enough, the outcome of the vote might have been completely different. That's the kind of really heavy shit the Creation-Ruling Mandate couldn't handle, but that Social Influence and Leadership do extremely well. Watching McConnell personally go from around the Senate to negotiate for every single vote he could possibly squeeze out was an extremely dramatic moment.

  • Urrrrrgh. I'm trying to find video of Mitch McConnell talking to other Senators during the Obamacare repeal vote because the moment I saw that, my second thought was that it was an amazing example of how Social Influence and Leadership work in Ex3, but the closest I can manage is a 12 hour video, so I'm having trouble finding the right timestamp....

    This clarifies a lot of things about Lunars, to be honest....

    I'm not sure if this trailer is a better fit for Lunars or Getimians. Any thoughts on this?...

    I just thought of a follow-up question to this.

    What would a fight between two characters who have mastered Black Claw, Dreaming Pearl Courtesan and White Veil even look like?...

    replied to How would you mechanically run an exam?
    Make it an oral exam and have them debate other students. They still need Lore to say something smart, but they can use other Attributes and Abilities if they want to to make it more interesting. For bonus points, make it like that debate in Jade Empire and give the judges different Principles so they respond to differently depending on the student's argument and approach.

    Edit: On second thought, if you really want to have a written exam, you can do this with just Linguistics instead....

  • I give installation costs an easy win. If Alchemicals are going to be based on the premise that they can only have a limited number of charms installed at any given time, it's better to follow through on that premise and give them a hard cap so they have to choose what they will and won't install. It also frees up XP to spend on other things....

  • Water is still water, but if you don't put it in a container, there isn't much you can do with it.

    I'm... not entirely sure where I'm going with this, but it feels right?...

    replied to 3E Infernals - Change of Direction
    I really appreciate how Ex3 sorcery facilitates these deals. I've got a concept floating around of a Eclipse Guildsman who gets his sorcery from Makarios -- and emphatically not one of the Yozis -- and between Infernal Nobility, Dark Paramour, Demonic Tattoos, The Burning Name, Suzerain of Endless Flame, Miracles of Shadow and Chaos, Astral Meditation, and of course, spells, there are a lot of sorcerous powers that can be reskinned for Makarios and that a Solar could barter for, getting in deeper and deeper with the demonic merchant while still retaining the character's core motivation, because...

    I just thought of something. Pre-Visitation Scions get one Calling, right? Does that mean Callings and Knacks are in Scion: Origin, not Scion: Hero?

    replied to Exigence grabs
    The point of the Exigence is to showcase how Exaltation expresses itself in many different miraculous forms and reducing other Exaltations to the Exigence instead of creating new Exaltations completely defeats the purpose of having the Exigence in the first place....
