    I'd say the reverse personally, the mutations are supposed to reflect your spirit shape so at the 4-5 points of soak level Unusual Hide is a carapace or bone armour. I mean, yeah you could be a Ninja Turtle but the charmset is probably going to reward you for being a stamina focused soakbeast....

    I point to a scene like this for what I want for mortals vs. Exalts. Spoilers for Clone Wars Season 5.
    Darth Maul's name is pretty synonymous with badass and four bounty hunters (and a really good boy!) inconvenienced him and lived.

    I've said elsewhere that Hybrid Body is difficult to assess right now with the corebook's offerings for supernatural merits. If we've got good mutations it'll be great, otherwise growing wings the main appeal I see of this.

    Doesn't mean you can't do it.
    An observation I had with the Dragon-Blooded book that remains true here, there's an apparent desire to avoid presenting situations that were practically the default expectation of previous editions such as the elder exalt with a plan that's so insane that stopping it at the eleventh hour is the only real way you can interact with it....

  • I'm not terribly concerned.
    The Silver Pact's general direction doesn’t need to matter to any games any more than what the Lunars who aren’t part of the PCs pack think is more important and it's a slightly more palatable answer than "I'd love to help you with the Mask of Winters sport, but I'm three generations into turning a caste system into a meritocracy and if I don't micromanage I come back and the whole place is on fire, you know how it is?"

    Some more notes on mortal mercenaries.

    A huge block of infantry with a singular commander is potentially mincemeat against a circle of Exalts, are the troops all the same quality? is there a ranged element? cavalry? who does the commander delegate orders to? Consider local exotic fauna and minor supernatural elements that can be harnessed. Exotic pets can come to the forefront again when they have a siege lizard fitted with a howdah to provide a moving fortress.

    On the smaller scale they might gather up groups of the best mortals they can get on short notice, Zahara the...

  • Historically Dragon-Blooded have had a couple of pretty esoteric powers, for example in 1st and 2nd edition a side effect of Bestow the Saffron Mantle allowed a dead Dragon-Blooded bureaucrat to hijack the body of their proxy and get revenge from beyond the grave before their soul was forced to move on. A potentially confusing statement about Dragon-Blooded charms but its existence made for a worthwhile plothook.
    They've gotten less weird in Ex3 when surcharge and element segregation went away, that was a major cause of why (for example) half of performance used to be dedicated to being...

    replied to Your fave martial arts for a dragon-blood?
    There's an official ruling on the counter attacks (the timing work like Solar Counterattack as per post 111 of the big Ask the Devs). Last I checked the form's special activation rules remain a hypothetical and not something that the style itself is capable of....

    If you're looking for a stand-in for enlightened essence before the Guild starts recruiting going to supernatural communities for help, that'd be weird pets.

    It's an incentive to have, for example, a merchant prince who drops people who annoy her into a shark tank like a fucking Bond villain. It won't slow the average group of PCs down anymore than having her declare "I know kung fu!" and activate a Terrestrial Martial Arts form would've done, but it's potentially more memorable....

  • Mixed feelings.
    I'm pretty okay with the idea that the esoteric powers of the other Exalts are (in their limited ways) better at ignoring someone's preferences and bending them to your will. However, Dragon Warlord's Convocation is very much presented as "my awesome presence demands your loyalty!"...

  • The initial post highlights something about my approach to social influence.
    Much like how I'm not going to make people join battle and track initiative to fight a random guard, Bob the peasant doesn't really start as a fully formed NPC I have ideas of his intimacies but mostly getting him to do things are just social rolls at varying difficulty ratings. If Bob comes back he'll have ties and principles appropriate to that first interaction....

  • I've got a very basic methodology to update mechanics to 3rd edition without a horrible fucking mess that I've been meaning to make into a flow diagram. Might try and get that done, it'll probably help some people.

    There's nothing inherently wrong with it, but fans of the bootstraps tend to not be keen on the idea that there's some special factor at play in how their character gained their abilities when others didn't....

    Seems like there's an opertunity to create entries for 3e Lunar material as we become aware of it.

    I'm really enjoying it.
    It doesn't really scream Exalted warstrider combat like Voltron did, but it's honestly nice to enjoy a show/movie on its own merits and not the components I could steal for inspiration....

    It's worth noting that the only kind of empowered mortal that's really gone is the "I spent 5 years meditating and pulled myself up by my bootstraps" kind.

    In 2e terms, Mist the Eternal Revolutionary is a guy who went Power Questing in the Wyld and Ku Nenavaya got an endowment from a Deathlord.

    I'd argue there still is.
    The assertion with that mismatch is that the martial artist and the soldier could've walked similar paths but the former has put more so much more work into this while the latter depends on fighting as part of a unit and the quality of their equipment. It's just that this also works out as being more of a protagonist than the other guy....
