    This Volume is easily so much better than Volume 3.

    But I would like this wild ride to calm down, now. I'm not sure my heart can take much more.

  • Pentragram of Venus - charting the course of the Five Maidens of Fate

    So, Exalted's Creation is essentially geocentric. Everything revolves around the Elemental Pole of Earth, the world is flat, the stars are lights affixed to a solid ceiling called the firmament... except for the five planets, but word "planet" means "wanderer".

    But what courses do the wanderers take?

    Apparently, if you track and plot the course of Venus in...

    Make increasing (but not decreasing) anima flare entirely voluntary to the player/character, and have your most powerful Charms require a minimum level of flare.

    Most Stealth and Disguise Charms only work at Dim anima level, some Celestial Exalted combat Charms require you to at least have your Caste Mark shining, and your mightiest Charms demand that you be at bonfire.

    That would definitely make playing Dragon-Blooded less annoying. If bonfire is entirely voluntary, you can never accidentally lock yourself out of out-of-Aspect Auras. Certain Charms can be gated behind...

    Depends.

    Basic Beowolves can leap at least one story high, Boarbatusks have a Sonic the Hedgehog spin attack, Nevermore can throw their feathers like daggers, Manticores and Sphinxes can spit fireballs, Feilong can spit lightning bolts, Leviathans seem to spit electrified plumes of fire, Apathy can emit sub- or hyper-sonic frequencies that sap living creatures (or at least humans) of energy...

    And Geists are flying ghost things that can possess inanimate objects....

    That's definitely one way to simplify NPCs, and I would approve.

    It would also be interesting if it prevented spirits from using artifacts. When was the last time we saw a spirit with an artifact that wasn't actually part of the god somehow?


    But aside from limiting players from walking around draped in every artifact they've ever looted from a corpse, why do Exalted need motes either?...

    But without the sorcerer or the Shattering Howl, do you figure a battle group of Berlingels is only Might 1, rather than the Might 2 of a pack of Blood Apes?

    What about Beowolves?...

    Returning to the question of how necessary motes are, consider the Blood Ape.

    It has 45 motes left over if it materializes right before a fight.

    Combat generally lasts no more than five rounds at most, and a blood ape should get combat respiration, so if it lasts that long it can get about 25 motes back in total. Roughly 60 motes.

    But its most useful and powerful Charms either cost Willpower or can only be used once per fight without fulfilling a reset condition. And none of them can be used together in the same turn, so timing becomes a valuable resource...

    Y’all remember the Berlingel from the Ruby Short?

    How do you feel it compares to a Blood Ape? Minus the shattering roar Charm that it obviously doesn’t have.

    I'd like to set a five-jade set of armors purposed for infiltration.

    The blue jade armor would aid with Stealth Charms for keeping the squad concealed, Linguistics Charms for silent squad communication and coordination, for using Soaring Zephyr Flight to carry the squad through the air...

    The black jade armor would aid the others with operating underwater.

    The white jade armor would enable tunneling through the ground or silently making doors in walls and seamlessly patching those holes up to hide evidence of their passing, while also enhancing senses....

    If the powered armor’s strength-enhancing Evocation wasn’t an attunement bonus, then it probably interacts with an Exalt’s native Strength booster, like Strength-Increasing Exercise or Strength of Stone Meditation, and the Evocation could make those bonuses “non-Charm” when used in the armor.

    Likewise for sensor bonuses and Awareness Charms....

    It isn’t and you’re right. But someone may yet come up with an appropriate idea for a personal-scale FAAA (First Age Artifice Artifact). FA3? Fah?


    Anyway, I do think that “anti-poison, sensors, squad-communication, stealth” all share a common theme when you realize the basic purpose is “commando”. Such an armor is made for traversing hostile wilderness to invade foreign territory, avoiding the enemy’s defenses to strike behind their lines.

    There has definitely been multiple sets of five jade armors made for five aspect commando teams of Dragon-Blooded...

    Yeah, leaving his mother a slave didn’t make any sense.

    How did the EU handle droid enslavement? The same?...

    The same research Tim Pool was reading since at least two years ago, and which hasn’t changed any of the other times he’s cited it since. Trump’s actually more centrist than past Republican presidents; even Obama and Hillary didn’t promise to recognize gay marriage, and he’s trying to force foreign countries to stop murdering their gays.

    If the Left’s ideas were so effective and popular, they wouldn’t need to use the government to force people to do what they wanted; they wouldn’t have needed to use the Supreme Court to bypass...

    No, the research shows the Overton window lurched heavily to the left. The left claim they’re liberals even as they try to increase governmental control over every facet of life, which is not liberal, but rather authoritarian. Since America hates authoritarians, the left use liberals for camouflage.


    Anyway, I hate The Last Jedi. I enjoyed it at the time, but the more I thought about it, the more I hated it.

    Carry Fisher died, and Leia’s ejection into the void was the perfect moment to retire the character. Mark Hamill was alive and well and perfectly willing...

    Why isn’t Crystal Visor rolled into the sensory Evocation, and why isn’t the strength effect an Evocation with more Oomph?

    Does including those two modest effects in the attunement bonus really justify making a new special category with all of those downsides?

    Would it be unreasonable for an elite soldier, who is specially trained to use that armor, to know two more of its Evocations?

    Hadn’t considered that. I saw it as dogpiling someone, but that would involve knocking the target prone as well as engaging them. Simply engaging a target would work like focusing down a single target, and Revolving Crescent Defense still logically helps against such a tactic.

    But there’s no RAW limitation to how many characters a battle group can engage. I suppose that’s better to leave to ST discretion, based on the size, composition, and circumstances of the group....

    I feel like battle groups who focus on a single target should penalize that target’s Defense with a preemptive onslaught penalty. Solar Charms can still negate it, and particularly White Reaper Style’s Revolving Crescent Defense.

    if their numbers give them the power to attack multiple targets with the same attack, why shouldn’t those numbers help them overwhelm a single target with a focused attack?...

    Do we want to keep battle groups, and do we want battle groups to be more challenging in a simplified combat system?
