  • I like the Era's take on the Reborn but I also like the idea that they're allies to the Deathless. If Imhotep is Deathless then I think of the Reborn as Anck-sun-amun, from the Mummy movies...

  • Don't be modest


    It's an interesting Era, and spells out very clearly how much of the cosmology (between any splat, really) is about how each one perceives it. My favorite detailed bits were the description of Anpu, and how Arisen can enter the upper caverns of the blue book Underworld but not its lower domains because they see it as part of Neter-khetet...

    Dark Eras: Fall of Isireion Discussion

    This Era was written by Matthew Dawkins and, I think, Malcolm Sheppard. I was lucky enough to expand it by 10,000 words, about half of which was used to include Immortals crossover material.

    I hope you all enjoy it Matthew did a great job and wrote the expansion material in less than a week on top of that. I was amazed at how he seemed to be able to read my mind at times, especially with the bane relic, Ikhtil's Carapace.

    replied to Dark Eras companion backer pdf
    I think I've been anticipating the Companion more than the core book. The Sundered World was dope but I'm aching for Vampire/Promethean Black Death, Mage/Mummy Mutapa Empire, and Forsaken by Rome. The other Promethean Eras were getting some hype, too, so that'll be cool to see.

    I can't wait, of course, for the Cleopatra Era to be shown to the public. I think people will be pleasantly surprised at how it works into Mummy's setting....

  • Holden once said on an AMA that 2015 was supposed to be the Abyssals year. If core was supposed to be 2013 then it certainly seems they'll follow right after the Exigents book

  • I don't think alchemists count as a minor splat. They're meant as antagonists; it'd be like being one of the Seer minions or a Hero. This isn't to rehash alchemist and Hero debates, just saying that there's a big difference in their presentation as playable characters compared to wolf-blooded or ghouls.

    Mummy cultists I guess technically count? Although I think their equivalent splat for this thread would be Witnesses (sleepwalkers) and Sadikh (proximi)

  • What do I want? Lunars, Infernals, Exigents, then anything else. As a newcomer to Exalted with third edition's release I feel like I couldn't run, play, or portray NPCs of Lunars or Infernals because they are said to have changed so much from previous editions.

    I think the release order has Abyssals coming after Exigents, though, followed by Lunars and Sidereals. Liminals could be thrown between the last two, though; I understand the developers' excitement to present new Exalts but it'd be a rough move to include them before the main five and Exigents are out

  • Now I'm wondering if this will be shown in the Black Death Era in the Companion.

    I'm trying hard to think of Mummy Eras (no other Eras matter) and I'm reminded of DaveB's campaign he set in India. One of the PCs sought Apotheosis in previous Descents, and made the connection between Deathless experience and Buddhist reincarnation. That would be an interesting setting and theme to explore for Mummy, and you could even include Thuggee cults that are completely racist, ahistorical, and scandalous! ...

    I think mummies are a little blasé about modern empires mimicking Irem's greatness. You know how many times they've seen empires rise and fall? They've been around for 5000 years! If they ever were offended (fine, maybe some still are) I think they were inured to it by the time Alexander the Great died, if not a thousand years earlier

    Yes and no.

    Yes, mummies are byproducts of a sorcerous age that predates history, and even their own Memories fail them. They are walking anachronisms. Once, mortal sorcerers, demons, amkhata, and stranger things besides walked openly on the earth, but those days are gone and only they remain. The fourth Sothic Turn is the most alien yet as everyday technologies parallel their own basic Affinities.

    Still, they wake up and see the same themes century after century. The strong abuse the weak. The rich steal from the poor. Flags wave above palaces and cities proclaiming...

    The first question you have to think about is, "What makes Mummy too dark?"

    Some of your initial solutions seem contradictory to me. For example, if the Shan'iatu are allies and patrons of the Arisen then there doesn't seem to be a point to Apotheosis (in my mind, at least, because it seems to be freedom from the Judges as much as from the Shan'iatu), so why would there be a faction of mummies who have achieved that? Do note that, IIRC, there is a mummy in the Rio city source-book that has achieved Apotheosis, separate from the Heretic.

    Yet based on your solutions...

    replied to Cursed Necropolis: Rio
    I never understand when people say it's not crossover-friendly. There's a bit more player buy-in, like Promethean, because mummies have many supernatural drives that are near compulsions at times (but most splats do, actually) but I wouldn't interpret that as them being better suited to NPCs.

    I think it's due to the books not really going into the topic, unlike Promethean, Changeling, and Demon's supplements. Of course Hunter and Beast are crossover-friendly, and Mage is, too, as it's their nature to study Mysteries. Despite Changeling's Rite of Spring book I don't think that gameline...

    I feel like a lot of material was covered well by first edition. I guess now that powers are different we could use some expansion there, and I'd love to see example Extempore with it as well
