  • Would you say that a good portion of the art we haven't seen has more of a traditional Exalted aesthetic compared to the preview pieces? I really truly dont mind if there are some illustrations that break that aesthetic. I just dont want to see ALL the art skew towards more generic fantasy stylings like the previews have....

  • Yeah they have definitely shuffled things around for the better. I just dont want to see things slide again when the art demands are bigger than once a month PDFs and mini supplements....

  • And even Gundams do a better job of being warstriders because they tend to be unique one off machines tailored to their pilots tastes. This one is more like a Zaku right off the assembly line to complete the Gundam metaphor....

  • I wasn't impressed with the core book, there are some fantastic pieces in there but I cant help but feel its gargantuan page count stretched the art budget past it's breaking point. It seems like the studios Maria Cabardo was pulling from were more about budget than talent with some of the pieces feeling half finished or apparently plagiarized. Since the core book on the whole I have been much more impressed with what has been attached to the admittedly limited Exalted releases so far. What remains to be seen is if they can maintain this quality with proper books like Arms of the Chosen, The Realm,...

  • I disagree, Exalted envelopes countless cultures which may all have their own imagery and fashions, but I think it ties all those things together under a unique aesthetic. It is a setting where you can have a viking, a geisha, and a Bedouin wanderer each with their own style, but they will all share an element of this underlying mystical, fanciful, epic aesthetic which I feel is missing here. Exalted has always been in good company with games like Pathfinder, Blue Rose, Symbaroum, or Dark Heresy where you can open their books and say this is definitely "x system's" art, but both the...

  • The castle in the sky robot had a certain more whimsy and style with those long arms and scarecrow posture that made him more fanciful. I totally agree though that he would work as a more industrial construct in Creation, he just makes up for it in other parts of his design.

    I think there are ways to make soulsteel medieval and gothic without being so mundane. You can have that solid foundation you just need to build on it more.

  • Does the Arms of the Chosen art capture the style of Exalted?

    I know it is early days to be quibbling on this with the book not yet in out hands, but I feel like I see a trend here even if it isn't nearly a conclusive one. I don't think the couple pictures we have seen previewed from Arms of the Chosen really do a good job of capturing the aesthetic of Exalted and Creation. They are good illustrations, the post core book art has generally been getting better and better in my opinion, but they feel like they have more generic "D&D" fantasy styling to them. My concern would be that Exalted has such a strong aesthetic, I would hate to see it slip...

    I totally agree, I'm hoping that isn't actually a warstrider. To me it looks like some sort of unthinking golem warmachine from the first age, not a unique piece of artifice to be worn by a exalt. Its way more industrial and bland than what warstriders have ever been depicted to look like. It seems more like some pulp nazi warmachine from 40's comics....

    If a PC has command of a battlegroup how would you translate short term damage done in combat into long term casualties and loses? As I understand it going down a size level in combat doesn't mean all those soldiers are dead, just that they can no longer fight for a variety of reasons from simply being stunned or afraid to outright dead. If you went into combat as a size 3 BG and came out size 1, what size would that battlegroup be after taking time to rest and bandage wounds?
