  • Been playing Hollow Knight recently. The game's version of "Charms" map very well to independent Hearthstones and some offer neat ideas for Exalted Hearthstones.

  • I agree that something like Stormcaller could exist with a "magitech" aesthetic without needing to be a First Age Artifact, because the scale of its power is perfectly fine within the normal 5-dot rating.

    Similarly, you could get something like Iron-Man's armor as a regular 5-dot artifact, because it's just super-special armor on the regular human size scale. Arms of the Chosen already features a flying artifact armor with a pinnacle Charm to turn into a creature of Legendary Size, so even the Hulk-Buster upgrade is on the table. (It probably won't have Devastating Actions,...

  • Or learn Wood-aspected Evocations for Gnomon that grow some other kind of fruit. One that won't be as powerful, but one that can be grown far more often.

    Can you survive one whole year between each Celestial Peach? Surviving a whole year would be easier with twelve Marvelous Peaches that heal injuries....

    So the Shellback Lizard (Anklyosaurs) doesn't have Heaven Thunder Hammer like the non-Legendary Size Pestletail.

    Do you feel that the Pestletail's special attack should be treated as a Magical Attack that only Pestletail familiars should be able to learn?

  • Aside from the choice of pilots, I really want to know how well this arrangement could actually work.

    It would take a Celestial Sorcerer, at least.

    Also, what were the Neomah doing? Serving as Gervesin's concubines or something?...

    I forget where I heard this, but I think at some point in the movie Ghidorah was referring to as a "youngest son who would get no inheritance, and so left to find his own fortune".

    So Ghidorah isn't just an individual, but a SPECIES, much as even Godzilla and Kong and the MUTOs are individuals of whole species. (Godzilla's father is variously referred to as Adam or Dagon.)

    Which means another Ghidora could show up. A Destroya, perhaps, or a DesGhidora, or a Kaiser Ghidorah, or however many versions of the bastard there have been.

    There's no way I'm rising from the surf in Godzilla form unless I WANT everyone on the beach looking at me so that they're not looking at something else.

    Otherwise, I'm sneaking BEHIND their defenses and becoming Godzilla inside their Gundam's garage so I can wreck it before Amuro Ray get suit up.

    What about suitably large rocks thrown by warstriders and giants? Warstrider weapons rules only, or siege weapon rules for feats of demolition?...

    It doesn't. "Prioritize the interests of the person most related/similar to you, especially when they are dependent on you" is an infinitely iterative principle.

    If I don't protect my family, who else will? Everyone in my family should be expected to put the family's interests first, and any other family's interests second.

    If I don't protect my people, who else will? Everyone in my culture should be expected to put the society's interests first, and any other culture's interests second.

    If I don't protect my species, who else will? Everyone in...

    If the local defenders were too strong to crush, the legions absolutely would destroy the people who supplied the defenders with food.

    But let's assume they would rather die fighting the defenders until all of the defenders are dead or surrendered. Then they tax the farmers until the farmers have to become bandits or die from lack of food. If I told them I could have saved their people from slavery, and they demand to know why I forsook them, how can I justify myself?

    If I don't defend my people, my family, my culture, then who WILL? Certainly not my enemies!

    Returning to this, let us suppose that the behemoth is not threatening to destroy my nation.

    But there is a second nation which is threatening to destroy my nation. This nation makes no distinction between combatant and non-combatant, merely hard targets and soft targets.

    I will not have many qualms about provoking a behemoth and aiming it at the enemy nation.

    I would not even have many qualms about sending it specifically against the enemy nation's farmers, because the enemy nation is threatening to kill and enslave my nation's farmers. Why should I value...

    If I had a choice between a behemoth destroying a nation I'm not at war with, or a nation I am at war with, I know which one I'm aiming it at. Innocents are going to die either way, so I'm not responsible for that, and I'm morally obligated to protect My People before Other People.

    It's occurred to me that, in terms of Kaiju defense teams, the Lunar Exalted have the most potential as first-responders and scouts compared to the other Exalted.

    Leaving aside how much easier it is for Lunars to patrol a territory they've claimed, even a Lunar chilling back at the home base can transit to the intruder as the crow flies and then nigh-instantly transform into a giant monster themselves to immediately engage the target while their warstrider-dependent partner is getting to their mecha and suiting up.

    The Lunar is losing her own health from damage, as well...

    Can Lunars use Surging Thews Technique and Fortress-Smashing Charge to dig tunnels in combat time?

    Essentially, it’s like why Firewands are a thing.

    If the Yozis can be freed, the game becomes about the Yozi.

    If gunpowder firearms were a thing, and nothing vaguely similar existed to scratch the itch, everyone in Creation would be running around with guns and everyone’s games would have That One Guy who thinks guns should obliterate the power gap between mortals and Exalted....

  • Is there any canonical Lunar who has either of these Charms? I didn't read the QCs of the new Lunars very closely, and it doesn't seem like any of the returning favorites have any Basilisc Jewels.

    The Charms are so accessible, and the jewels apparently so easily hidden by even the most perfunctory effort to conceal or disguise them, that they should be fairly popular.

    Even for just the first Charm, before you get as far as generating your own personal Hearthstone, you could inherit the Hearthstone left behind by your previous incarnation. I mean, as long as it didn't...

    Fighting chains are medium-class weapons constituting a weighted head (blunt or bladed) on the end of a chain, yes?

    How does this compare to European flail, or chained mace? Would it be represented differently, as a Melee weapon? Or is so impractical as a weapon that you need a Martial Art to use it, and thus it's not really any different from a Chinese meteor hammer?
