    Anybody have a copy of the Annals of Inherited Might?

    This was a house-rules PDF for God-Blooded and such for 2nd edition Exalted that I wrote. The version I'm looking for is the one that has thanks to a number of people on the forum.

    Thanks!

    I can't find it anywhere, or I'd have linked it. (I can find a site that alleges to have it, but it just has a dead link.)

    My local copy was lost in a computer transfer long ago (the one that led to my current multiply-redundant backup system), and I guess I figured it was safe on my webserver and didn't download a local copy (and so apparently lost it in the failure of my webhosting company and transfer of my site to a new one). I do have my first release of Annals of Inherited Might still, but that was the version that wasn't bugfixed by forum discussion. Maybe someone here on...

    The writer of the God-Blooded chapter came on to the WW forums when the book was released, and, well, the experience wasn't pleasant for him....

    And, for 2nd edition from the start through Return of the Scarlet Empress, I don't think its continuity was well-served on the line level....

    I'd expect them to know the number and the names, simply because pretty much every pre-electricity human culture had a goodly number of people looking at the stars at night (there's a limit on how much you can do at night without cheap, strong light, after all). People will continue to take notice of the five wandering stars, and folk tales are likely to conserve at least some of the information about them....

    A lot of pretty fundamental stuff happens there, though. The Freudian id covers bodily needs, wants, desires, and impulses. A replacement po in Creation might well swap them from being attracted to tall, leggy women to being attracted to short, round men, with all the resulting dissonance with memories of what they used to be attracted to thrown in. And even lesser changes can be disconcerting; I recall at this point Esri Dax in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine ordering raktajino even though she doesn't like it, because previous lives liked it....

    Oh! Note that the inability to resurrect now also is of a piece with other limits on undoing with sorcery:

    "Once a spell has been cast, its effects cannot be undone, but a skilled sorcerer may mute, twist, or weaken them with a distort action." Page 466.

    "The closest thing to dispelling a working that a rival sorcerer can do is performing a working of her own intended to achieve the opposite effect." Page 489.

    So the same metaphysical "entropy" or "inertia" or suchlike explains why you can't undo death. You can approximate...

    Sure, if you define it that way, it is. So if you don't actually care if the result is in a different body, has a different lower soul, and doesn't retain their memories, "resurrection" is possible.

    So, the key problem in resurrection, as usually understood, is not putting the hun in a new body. It's that you cannot create a being that has proper continuity of personality/identity with the person who died, even if you have continuity of memory.

    If you're looking for an obvious metaphysical root of the issue, then, it's probably the po, which is intimately...
