    replied to Changing the number of Lunar Exaltations
    I'm really not fond of the idea. There's already some potential problems with the unbalanced portrayal of the relationship between Lunar and Solar Exalted that the most recent edition has worked hard to undo and/or mitigate.

    As the primary reason I'm currently seeing in your post is to assign more Lunars to each Solar, I cannot see a single good reason that I would have this at my table.

    replied to Late reading of Exalted: the Lunars
    Speaking as someone who was there at the time:

    Lunars were pitched, among other things, as illusionists and tricksters, things that were not well-borne out of their charmset. When people complained—because of course we did: the Exalted forum culture and fandom was the Exalted forum culture and fandom even back then—the developer claimed that shapeshifting powers and some social charms were really all you needed for that, and that their claim of being "masterful illusionists" being something that was left in the core by partially by mistake.

    I'm not sure this is the case:

    3.) The idea that Lunars weren't intended to be playable is...iffy? There was definitely a period where they were intended...

    started a topic [2E] Dullahan Writeup

    [2E] Dullahan Writeup

    So I'm thinking of running a Scion game in the near future–I ran a couple in 1e, and I'm intrigued enough by 2e to take a crack at it–and with the ability opened up to play adopted Scions and fantastical creatures adopted under other gods, my wife knew what she wanted to do.

    Having seen too much Durarara!!, she wants to play a Dullahan (one of the characters is one). Without a writeup that I could find, I figured I could write one up; I do homebrew for my Exalted games, and this is little different in practice.
