    replied to What were Artifact Sais called again?
    Our group's had them as 3 dots for a pair, they're pretty much short daiklaves with the disarming tag instead of balanced.

    I wasn't talking about artifacts on that point. Contrary to what he said you can shoe a horse as an armourer and the book almost literally gives that as an example....

    Edit: I was wrong, I'm not going to defend artifact crafting as written.

    Oh for fucks sake.

    I reported the issue but we may need a new thread....

    A meaningful alternative setting like those Shards of the Exalted Dream or Dreams of the First Age needs the majority of the splat books released. There's other problem is that conveying the Second Edition setting in a single book means it won't be possible to cover everything with any failure to deliver on expectations opening the way to accusations that they purposefully made the old setting look bad....

    On fighting the Ebon Dragon.
    It's important to note that late 2nd edition didn't elevate you to the level where you could fight him so much as it diminished him to a paper tiger.

    #1 He had a weakness so glaring and so obvious that he needed to have everything go his way up to and including the assassination of The Unconquered Sun in order to (largely) shrug it off.
    #2 His portrayal side-lined his Soul Hierarchy to the point where people considered the prospect of fighting/killing him as beating up his almost comically helpless Jouten. Right, because his 2nd and 3rd circle...

    replied to 3rd Ed Sidereals
    That's not actually been the reality of the situation in any edition. First and second edition are full of NPCs who haven't achieved the optimal essence for their age, it's just that it tended to be used to reafirm that NPC write-ups sucked....

    Oh right, elsewhere in the chapter it mentions the death of the old Autocrat. I suppose I just assumed the Autocrat and the Aurocrat were the same guy! It certainly adds a lot of horror to The Puppet King, having the former ruler still around but turned into a decrepit figure of mockery and is in keeping with The Mask of Winters' theatrical approach towards the resistance.

    I think this is a rare moment of me projecting my in-game experiences onto the book because I ran an Exalted game years ago in which the Autocrat's daughter (now a Renegade Abyssal) ended up mercy killing him....

    It's wasn't clear what his status was.
    This makes him sound like a fucked up Disney animatronic but he's never specifically described as a corpse. I guess to provide the Storyteller options?...

    That was Wisdom Whispered, a different guy in the court. The Puppet King is the Autocrat of Thorns i.e. Red Iron Rebuke's brother.


    It's useful to remember how tonally different MoEP: Nocturnals Nox is from the one in MoEP: Sidereals.

    There were a few less successful attempts to give Nox his own Exalts and Reminiscent Oasis' attempt was the most successful, primarily because the others more followed the source material of Nox being defined by his lust for his sisters and watching everything which generally yielded less interesting revenge-focused exalts. RO basically...

  • So this has been flagged by a few people as a group attack, but if you truly feel the forum is being this abusive to you then I'm going to give you some time away from it.
    I suggest looking up mindfulness techniques and prioritising your own health because at the end of the day, this is a ridiculous amount of fuss over a game system.

    replied to Perfected Water and what it is good for?
    Maybe the magical version of that is Thistwater from 40k lore.

    Except from Dante spoiled for the horrors more than critical story info. It scores highly on lists of worse ways to die in the setting.

    I'm in no hurry to decide anything solid about Nox, he's a voice that some Nocturnals have in their heads that's telling them to fight the power who may or may not have their best interests at heart. Maybe he wants Thulio to cut out this Getimian shit before it destroys the universe? Maybe the Getimian shit was something he helped set into motion because their paradoxes enable his own?

    What really matters is I think that the two exalt types are thematically distinct enough.

  • The main one is a cursed Daiklave called Atansis Kohl.

    The sword has a will of its own to the point she’s more a support NPC than equipment, she can lend any and all of her Evocations to her bearer if she wants to. The problem is that by human standards she’s a narcissistic psychopath that wants people to fight, kill and die in order to try and possess her in the hands of a Dawn Caste who considers any death unacceptable.

    So, he’s limited by what he can ask of her because he’s trying to curb her more negative traits by appealing to her ego rather than indulging...

    An idea I've considered for Nocturnals that I can share now the veil of secrecy around the Getimians has fallen a little. Instead of being entombed in the Loom of Fate, Nox might not actually 'exist' (potentially because he was erased before or during the Primordial War) and be trying to correct that by exalting people who have thwarted destinies.

    I'm aware of no specific way to save entire threads. You can save individual pages on most browsers by right clicking and selecting "Save Page as..." but as the name suggests this must be done for each page....

    replied to Kid Friendly Inspirational Exalted Material?
    I'm wary about suggestions that are too thematic or illustrative of specific concepts that exist in Exalted.

    You don't want the watch list equivalent of "Exalted is like a T-Rex in an F-14" for example, I consider subplots in both Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars Resistance a great way to show that empire is evil* but I'd reserve it for an established Exalted player rather than get a newbie to conflate the Realm with the First Order.

    At that level it is pretty difficult to notice a significant problem unique to Dragon-Blooded, since comparisons to the Solar play experience are offset by the quantity of unexpected attacks in the Abyssal arsenal....
