  • A Lunar who uses an artifact bow to fight remotely, and resorts to tooth and claw against anything that manages to get close.

    I don't think you're going to change his mind, Kyeudo. At this point, it comes down to which one of you gives up first.

    Sadly, I think you doomed this thread from the start by quoting a man who apparently has a very polarizing political past and message, so various posters will make up their minds to disagree with you just so that they can disagree with him.

    The example was a rabbit and a monster. Not a human and a monster, but two amoral beasts of vastly different threat levels.

    You really can't flex "monster" to signify "predator", when the counter-example is a prey animal?...

    A person with ADHD who succeeds in paying attention to a boring lecture is more impressive than someone else without that condition who fails to do so.

    Also, just going by the words you quote, “Monster” doesn’t refer to morality but to power.

    A rabbit is harmless because it is harmless, not because it is peaceful. A tiger is peaceful if it decides not to kill you as it easily could.

    This goes right back to one of the major questions Exalted asks you to consider: What kind of person are you really, when you suddenly gain the powers of a demigod?

    Is snake hair more likely to be a Supernatural merit accessed through Hybrid Body Transformation than it is to return as a Charm called Snake Head Defense?

    Not all of them. The ones who respect themselves are the ones who are willing to defend themselves when attacked, or who martyr themselves in defiance.

    Can someone be said to respect themselves when they refuse to retaliate against abuse out of fear? Definitely not when they accept abuse because they lack a sense of agency or self-worth.

    You can have teeth and not use them. Most of the guns legally possessed by homeowners are locked away and never used. But homeowners got those teeth for a reason, and will use them if they need to.

    But the toothless lack...

    It’s also disgusting to utterly deny any validity to a single statement just because you dislike or generally disagree with the person who said it.

    Hilter probably would have told you it was important to get regular meals and sleep and exercise in order to remain healthy. He would have told you the sky was blue, grass was green, and water is wet.

    It is from the Nazis that we get the valid warning that if you repeat a lie often enough and loud enough, people will start to believe it.

    Even the most memetically reprehensible human being in popular cultural...

    All of the heirloom artifacts in What Fire Has Wrought were in the 3-to-4 dot range so that each Great House had a storied weapon with Evocations, but nothing more powerful than Dragon-Bloodsd can typically create on their own.

    Will there be a wider range of artifacts in Fangs at the Gate, as seen in Arms if the Chosen, including humble two-dot tools of convenience and mighty 5-dot terrors?

  • It is a great artifact somewhat lessened by an origin and backstory that does less to justify its elemental powers than most jade artifacts.

    Fimbulwinter isn’t a world, though you probably meant to say “word”. I don’t know what image you looked up, but it refers to a three-year-long winter which is supposed to herald Ragnarok, where the world and most everyone in it dies in a huge war.

    The book says that we can retry Threaten actions only by making a bigger threat.

    What if we instead repeated the same threat, but demanded far less of the subject? A major rather than life-defining task, or a minor or trivial task instead of a major one?

    Is that proving that your resolve is too weak, that you would compromise rather than double down?

  • I’m actually getting interested in Howl’s titular Moving Castle, Yaga Baba’s chicken-legged cabin, and the Striders of Anthem.

    Lunars who don’t sail still have a keen interest in having some kind of truck or mobile home for carrying all of their most precious followers and possessions around with them, allowing them to retreat from Wyld Hunts and remain harder to locate.

    As a Lunar, I could direct my mobile home to travel to a specific rendezvous point as I fly off as a bird in another direction to go on an adventure completely unburdened by my extra stuff....

  • It is not a stealthy bow. Your target has to see you aiming at them for you to get a reflexive Threaten action against them.

    Other Evocations build upon this power, granting greater ability to inflict and exploit fear, as well as more ways to inflict it.

    Perhaps not enough about it is particularly moonsilver, yet. Even the slated Evocation to detect and track opponents intimidated by you could be appropriate to soulsteel.

    But there is a lot of potential for this bow to represent protection of allies and territory, exploiting the fear it creates to drive aggressors...

    Robert, Eric, could you pass on an apology from me?

    If you know the person who wrote Moonlit Huntress, and you know if they've seen the things I've said about it, could you tell them that I am ashamed of the abusive way I have spoken about it?

    I'm still mad, but that's never an excuse to be an asshole.

    Wise Steel and Razor Dancer at least have the excuse of being freshly made; too young to have many Evocations yet discovered.

    Moonlit Huntress is explicitly at least a few centuries older than the Usurpation, and used frequently by at least two Exalted before being used by a third.

    The simple answer is that the attunement bonus has so much wordcount to it precisely because the author must have been trying to make the weapon seem as impressive as possible with only that and a single, overpowered Evocation.

    Once again, I state my opinion that I would have been...

    Is there any Deathlord who opens up the archetype of “Death/Psychopomp in the form of a hunter or predator beast” to the Abyssal Charmset?

    Like Kindred (Lamb and Wolf) from League of Legends?

    If you Aim at a target who is at Medium range, and attack on your next turn when they have moved into Short range, do you gain the +3 dice bonus?

    If you Aimed at someone at Short range who moved out to Medium before you attacked, do you lose the dice bonus in exchange for the ability to attack them at that range?

    Can you Aim at something which is at Extreme range so that if it moves into Long range, you can attack it?

    If I understand Elfive right, we think it is perfectly fine for a bow to enhance a Rush action, but only if the bow is specialized to function best in close range.

    Moonlit Huntress is not that bow....
