    replied to [Dev Blog] The Lunar Exalted
    I find it most useful to think of Exaltations -- at least, CELESTIAL Exaltations and their derivatives -- as divine, reincarnating souls born from the celestial gods.

    This is obviously not the case for Alchemicals, Liminals, or Dragon-Blooded. For the Alchemical Exalted, their bodies and condition are their Exaltation. For Liminals, their own personal souls seem indistinguishable from their Exaltation.

    For Dragon-Blooded, Exaltation seems like more of a second lower Po soul than a second higher Hun soul.

    Learning her lesson certainly would have taken less effort than repeatedly trying to kill herself and then convincing the kingdoms of her world to kill the gods.

    Salem and many of her modern minions are model lessons of the importance of Mounty Oum’s credo of “Keep Moving Forward”.

    Salem kept trying to return to the past before Ozma died, and so she became stuck. Rather than making what she could out of life constructively, she kept tearing the world apart in her efforts to turn back the clock.

    Ruby accepted that her mother was dead. Blake accepted...

    People with different opinions and priorities, when they have come to an agreement, can present a united front to a third party.



    That's an odd statement to make, as it supposes the God of Creation would ever consider destroying them. Either in person or in Qrow's story, the elder brother has never once destroyed anything, only fought his brother to make him stop destroying things.

    It ignores how the Light God hung his head in sorrow before his brother killed them all. And how he talked about it to Ozma, "A tragedy has befallen your people, at the hands...

    Gravity Dust is surely involved (magnetism wouldn't explain how she could be dragging the Giant Nevermore down towards her inferior mass while she's flying upwards at it), but the sickles clearly show an attraction towards each other that doesn't seem like Gravity alone.

    Gravity alone would be dragging EVERYTHING around a sickle towards it, rather than attracting only the sickle's twin.

    Maria might be using a special combination of Gravity and Magnetism Dust....

    White jade with moonsilver elements. White jade for gravity and magnetism; moonsilver for changing forms, pair-bonding, and duality.

    Could Solar Exalted have a Survival Charm to shrink their familiars to a portable size, or would they need to resort to artifacts or sorcery for that?

    I’m supposing that schools have to be political and a-geological, so that storytellers and players can have characters of whatever school they please regardless of geography.

    Shahan-ya was, I think, one of the highest of First Editions preponderance of ranks; fitting for Lunars with potentially global influence.

    It also leaves room for re-using one of the lower ranks to denote a lesser teacher/mentor figure who is more geographically oriented and available.

    He spared her even earlier than that, when he blasted her and Ozma with dark fire but she was left untouched even as the ground under her was scorched.

    Which is part of what makes me think the God of Light decided that she had become someone special, in a way.

    It is after that that the God of Life stopped her from provoking his brother further and then cursed her with immorality that could only be broken if she accepted the lesson the Older Brother has been trying to teach his Younger Brother this whole time.

    Because maybe it will be more persuasive to the...

    Basically, the God of Darkness doesn't much care for rules, so the only way to make him care about the rules is to never break them yourself, lest he has cause to say that the rules mean nothing.

    But because he doesn't care about the rules, he'll glad break them himself on a whim, though his brother can hold him sternly enough to his word that he gives up and toes the line again.



    Oh, agreed. Didn't mean to suggest otherwise....

    But the Light God didn't bring Ozma back to life. He sent his ghost back to cohabit with someone. Apparently, that's different enough to appease his brother.

    If the Light God had done what Salem wanted, then it would have been his brother storming his sanctum to demand he play by the rules.

    And if that didn't happen immediately, then humanity would be storming his pool on their own, demanding that he resurrect all of THEIR loved ones too. Because contrary to what Salem thinks, she's not anyone special who deserved special treatment.

    The Light God had to say...

    My point is, the gods aren’t hypocrites for wanting Salem to respect life more than she does, because even her own kind expect that from her, and the gods aren’t asking her to respect life as much as they do. (And neither of them agree on how important life is, to begin with.)

    And how much they respect mortal life is clearly influenced by how easily they can just bring everyone back and make them immortal whenever they feel like it, with any time spent being dead apparently feeling like no time at all to people.

    Ozma had no idea how much time had passed since his...

    We can all agree that Salem didn’t value the lives of others as much as she should, and that her own kind would want her to appreciate them more, right?

    That is, none of the original humanity should be happy that she lied to them all to get them to agree to fight gods that had proven they could kill people with a wave of their hands, and provoked the God of Destruction to kill them all?

    We can agree that, after watching the God of Destruction effortlessly No Sell the attack against him and then just as easily wipe out her army, Salem’s response should not have been...

    We never saw a Manticore engage Qrow after the Sphinx joined the fight, though he killed at least one before it did.

    Meanwhile, we did see Yang grapple a Manticore by the horns, and I think Blake tangled at least one in her ribbon. Grappling individuals of a battle group isn’t mechanically allowed.

    Battlegroups are good for modeling when multiple characters are each being attacked by multiple opponents, but none of the students ever seemed to fight more than one Manticore at a time, so I can see a case where each Manticore is rolled into battle separately. Which allows...

    Since default shapeshifting cannot be flurried with an attack, battles normally only last around four rounds, and activating either Hybrid Body or Deadly Beastman Transformation is a Simple Charm...

    Was there any Lunar who fought like Bayonetta? Relying on artifact weapons and full access to their Evocations to fight, and only using shapeshifting to assume a form more advantageous to winning a rush or disengage action?

    Never got an answer.

    If you wanted to run the Sphinx and Manticore battle on the train in Exalted, would you model the Manticores as individuals for each non-Qrow player character, or as a single battle group that fights and is fought by everyone but Qrow?

    Currently? I'd go with "Sleep With One Eye Open".

    Would it let me eat someone's corpse to eliminate the evidence that I took their face, and then kiss their wife afterwards without them tasting the blood and guts of their husband on my tongue?

    The scenario makes me uncomfortable, but Lunars are monsters when they want to be.

    Really, this whole line of thought came from "do you have any idea what animals are willing to lick, chew, or even swallow? if Lunar Exalted are going to turn into animals and get animal instincts and benefit from an animal's idea of hygene so that they can fully exploit the sensitivity of an...

    Do you figure Exalted can support an entire Cane-Fu martial arts Style?

    Do you think there’s room for an umbrella Charm that lets you negate grappling throws and other knockback effects?


    What about the chapter 1 fight with the Sphinx and Manticores? Would you model all of the Manticores as a battle group that everyone but Qrow was fighting while he was busy with the Sphinx? Or would you have each player fight their own Manticore?

    Today's chapter was another whopper.

    We finally get to see Mile's favorite Grimm. The ones that are weak, but terrifying in packs.

    No speed, no strength, but they're tough, and they constantly generate a frequency that induces apathy and lethargy in any human or faunus who hears them. When they strain themselves, they can blast the wavelength out to weaken their prey.

    Blake seemed especially affected, though she was also the one closest to them for that last blast.

    Even the most experienced huntsman is easy prey when he's too tired to care about
