    So, you feel that Lunar Limit Breaks should be sudden, wild, and impulsive mood swings like Solars experience?

    But there aren’t many possible ways for mood swinging fits to be sudden, wild, and impulsive...

    And Solars experience pretty much every imaginable kind of mood swing...

    So it seems like a case of “exactly like this, but different”. Yeah, that’s definitely tough to pull off.

    At least it sounds like you found a way to give Dragon-Blooded the exact same thing, but smaller, in a meaningful way.


    If the Lunar...

  • I think "body-horror shapeshifting" is more of what the Liminal Exalted are doing, particularly with their Flesh Charms, and possibly also Marrow.

    Liminals can bend and stretch like Luffy and other rubbermen... but in a way that involves gruesome tearing, ripping, and bleeding. So, more Skull Girls than Dark Stalkers, except for Jedah, that freak. And Lord Raptor, what with how he stabs you with his own ribs.



    That sounds right....

    How would the current representation of the Solar Great Curse fail to work for the Lunar Exalted in Third Edition?

    In what ways did the Second Edition form of Lunar Curse fail to work for their stories?

    What do you think about Second Edition’s attempt at giving Sidereals actual Limit Breaks?

    Do Limit Breaks really makes sense for anyone but Solar and Infernal Exalted?

    Should the Lunar Great Curse be as subtle as the First Edition Curse of the Sidereals, which basically had no mechanical representation at all?

    Or will the Curse for Lunars and Sidereals be at least as much of a presence as for Dragon-Blooded?

    “The Guild” is more of a culture or ideal/ideology than a monothilic organization, right?

    If that’s so, wouldn’t it make more sense to say “a guild” instead of “The Guild”? Because a character can interact with a small group of businessmen but can’t interact with an entire culture at once, and each member of the merchandise culture is competing with the others.

    The current practice is like referring to the presence and activities of a single Baptist Church in town as “The Protestant Reformation”. The entire Reformation movement.

    Wait, is this like those “draugur” tomb-zombies I hear Skyrim has?...

    Kali was holding Yuma’s torso off the ground. His legs were dragging because he was limp. Most of his weight was carried by Kali.

    And why don’t you think Aura is used for super-strength?

    Also, why are you talking about “anyone who picks up a weapon”? I thought we were talking about Junior’s goons and the White Fang grunts.

    Oh, and Kali could also block gunshots with a wooden tea tray. So she seems to know enough about Aura to make her weapons unbreakable.

    You think Jaune is normal for his world.

    “Normal” for Remnant is the Vytal Tournament. Where the commentators talk about Aura and the score boards visibly track the percentage of Aura each competitor has left.

    “Normal” for Remnant are combat schools that serve as high schools.

    Jaune didn’t know what Aura was. He had never been to combat school despite a burning desire to go and the talent to succeed. He is not normal for Remnant

    Oscar is much more normal than Jaune, and no one talks about “awakening” his Aura in the way that Second...

    Shotgunning un-Aura’ed people in the face?

    What makes you say mooks on Remnant don’t know how to use their Aura?

    Your average American citizen doesn’t know the first thing about guns, but your average gangster almost certainly does. They learn real fast, because they want to LIVE.

    Plus, on Remnant, there are high-school equivalent “combat schools”, of which the White Fang grunts might have been dropouts or even graduates.

    Also remember that their base was in the Grimm-infested wilderness and ruins of a slain city. Setting one foot...

    Normally, reaching for a certain level of Artifact and falling short means that the project simply dies. You could use the failed product as the basis or expendable component for another project, but the thing itself is stillborn.

    Will the Dragon-Blooded get a Charm which lets them fail gracefully, allowing them to reach for the stars with an Artifact 4 or 5 and --should they fail-- settling for a 3-dot version of their ambition?...

    Holden suggested, if I remember right, that the Lunar Great Curse might involve “losing control of the thousand beasts within”.

    Might Lunar Limit Breaks involve getting locked in disadvantageous forms, being forced to constantly and randomly change, budding off a short-lived wild animal or evil twin? Anything like that?

    Not punishing Lunars for shapeshifting through limit triggers, but using Limit Breaks to turn their shapeshifting against them?

    What sorts of things can Lunar Charms do that Lunars couldn’t do in past Editions?

    Are they related to the late 2.5 idea of Raksha seeking to reincarnate as human beings? Changeling Exalted?...

    There's martial arts, and there's natural features.

    In the same way that Crane has wings and Snake would normally have fangs (she was born without any), Po has his thick skin and protective layer of body fat.

    There's currently no Style in Exalted that matches how Po fights, I think.

    Possibly the closest one is Crane Style, because Po's most unique and memorable tricks involve soft defenses that turn an attacker's energies against him. But Po definitely wouldn't be using purely Crane, since he also makes "unprovoked" attacks.

    This strikes me as very true.



    That's cool!



    To add to the link Robert provided:

    Apparently the Greeks and Romans also accused the Phoenicians/Carthagians of child sacrifice. And while some historians have dismissed this as Roman propaganda against their enemies, Israel wasn't its enemy. Queen Jezebel was a princess...

    Are there any Lunar Charms that play with the idea of carrying people, either in their arms (or mouths, or talons) or on their backs?

    Like, a Dexterity Charm that lets a Lunar disengage more easily when transporting someone they care about away from danger?
