    It's not like I specifically wanted to lump both together, but...

    Well, look at those rough ideas I had, and tell me if you can think of a way to make different ones which play more to the strengths of shotguns than rifles or carbines.



    Why three? She doesn't use a shotgun.

    White Reaper Style for the scythe form, Long Arm Style for the carbine/sniper rifle forms....

    Incidentally, my proposed Style would support playing Soldier:76, Widowmaker, and Reaper. If the Reaper-inspired Abyssal is using a Firearms Charm that allows him to hold one two-handed shotgun in each hand.

    It was thinking about Ruby Rose Exalting as a Lunar that got me thinking about a Martial Art based around two-handed firearms.

    It didn't seem right that as a Lunar Exalt, she could have special Charms based around using Crescent Rose's scythe form, but no Charms for its ranged attacks.


    I didn't get anywhere close to finished, but I came up with some ideas.


    First, some Tags:

    "Scope" allows you to use a single Aim action to attack someone at medium or greater range while also enjoying the Aim dice bonus.

    "Laser"...

    Can you not make a free account on the Rooster Teeth website to watch the episode one day after it airs for paid members?...

    Definitely. But it would still be possible to model a Sidereal in Creation pretty closely on most of the main characters....

    I was expressing the idea that Ruby or Yang could fit as most of the same kinds of Exalted, and with what Castes and Ability spreads.


    Then I rounded back to the Dragon-Blooded possibility, and touched on how the current devs have revealed that Dragon-Blooded have a "generative potential" for conceiving children which a high chance of becoming Exalted, and that potential is exhausted for at least five years or even ten years (or longer?) after the child is conceived.

    Taiyang and Raven used up their potentials with Yang, but Summer hadn't born a child at...

    You COULD simply tell them.

    But you can't necessarily make them care, so the point of those Charms is to make them listen and believe?...

    You're right that as an absolute statement, it is untrue.

    That doesn't mean there's no truth to it.



    Granted!

    But being so consumed by a goal that you resist the pull of Lethe through sheer single-minded obsession is still an unhealthy frame of mind....

    Ruby Rose, fitting Exaltations:

    Fire Aspect (Athletics, Dodge, Firearms, Melee, Presence, Socialize) + Awareness, Craft, War

    Chosen of Battles (Archery, Brawl, Firearms, Melee, Presence, War) + Awareness, Craft, Dodge, Integrity + Martial Arts

    Zenith [Supernal: Athletics] + (Integrity, Lore, Survival, War) + Craft, Dodge, Firearms, Melee, Occult

    Orichalcum (Strength, Charisma, Intelligence) + Dexterity, Perception, Wits


    Yang Xiao-Long, fitting Exaltations:

    Fire Aspect (Athletics, Dodge, Firearms, Melee, Presence,...

    I'm sticking with my last post.

    One of the major stories about ghosts is that they pass on to the next life when you solve whatever issue is keeping them in the world. The moment that they relax and find peace, they disappear.

    Therefore, what separates a human from a ghost is that a ghost is inherently MISERABLE; because if they weren't miserable, they would stop being a ghost. Being undead is torment. The Underworld is Hell.

    Sounds a lot like the Neverborn, doesn't it?

    This is how you strike the balance between "being a ghost is bad"...

    Graceful Hummingbird, actually. A style that Holden homebrewed before and that we can ask the devs to bring back officially. Someone on this forum has already taken a "stab" at updating it for Third Edition.


    Dust magic could be homebrewed into something uniquely its own thing in Creation. We already have Fire Dust in Creation, and the way it is used in firewands is very similar to how Fire Dust is used in Remnant.

    Dust spells would be limited by ammunition rules like firewand firedust, and also generally require you to have (and protect) a financially...

    Agreed, and I doubt he could force Penny's father to do it.



    Ironwood attended the party, but that doesn't make him one of the same kind of people as the wealthy social elite. We can't simply assume the other council members are, either.

    I know that America's previous president was pretty chummy with the Hollywood elite and those elites have gotten very vocal about backing Democratic policies, but as the current presidency shows, the wealth social elites and the executive branch of government can have completely different ideas about the world.

    What about sorcery and necromancy?

    In previous Editions, they enjoyed favored costs for those if they favored Intelligence. If Lunars can't favor Martial Arts (which makes sense, since mortals can't and Lunars should be bad at Ability Magic), should they be able to favor Initiations and Spells?...

    I have many more articles speculating about the four kingdoms and Menagerie, if anyone wants to check out my Tumblr.

    Plus, a lot more original Semblance ideas.

    I remember hearing once that Miles or someone else at Rooster Teeth said that Penny is their version of Ayanami Rei.

    And the heart breaking thing about her is that she was actually three different people, one replacing the last after the previous one died.

    Or, at least that's one interpretation of Rei.

    I'm hoping that's not the interpretation RT would seek to homage with Penny. I want Penny back, not a replacement.

  • But then you get into any Lunar being able to steal your motes, Willpower points, and health levels and no real way to reset your vulnerability against such effects. And even if you COULD reset it, you'd have to remain constantly on guard against every possible form of Heart's Blood theft a Lunar could use, which is a miserably paranoid way to live.


    It's not that Lunars can't have the power to steal esoteric things like Solars do, but that doing so through Heart's Blood without killing the target leads to un-fun design. It's better if Lunars could do that sort of thing through...

    Also, Insidious Lunar Transformation, for forcing the change on the unwilling.
