    replied to Exalted: Essence
    Short-term I can't see there not being a really strong start for Exalted: Essence because it's providing people with the ability to play splats that otherwise won't be available for years.
    Long-term, it depends on how they simplify and what the product's objectives are- I don't think Onyx Path wants to deliver an Exalted lite at the expense of Third Edition so much as create a gateway version of the game that's like a delicious sampler plate of what's coming in the years to come....

  • Not remotely my experience of it.
    Dynast Celestial is normally "I want complex antagonist relationships with my relatives", the more mailigned version is when they want a free pass on the whole Anathema thing and to start out as something like Mnemon's secret asset who'll win her the civil war. Especially if they're trying to do it in what was intended to be a Dragon-Blooded game....

    replied to Battlegroup Revamp v0.1
    Personally, I think there's merit to the 'Initative Toilet' when battle groups are basically pets for character with War (my biggest gripe with them is a silly little oversight that I'm kicking myself for not spotting during the playtest: where due to abstraction, battle groups don't offer any protection to their commanders unless all the soldiers are performing a Defend Other action) but where that take on them failed us miserably was when the battle group was the core of, if not the entirety of the encounter. Since you either have no leader and run a combat where initiative is a finite resource...

  • I'm going to draw a line under discussing the roles of the sexes in regard to Creation/Exaltation because it's off-topic and has the potential to make the experience of this thread rather negative.

    It's a reasonable basis for discussion elsewhere but please, not here.

    It's worth making the Universal Credit application anyway because

    #1 We don't know how long this crisis will last, getting paid in 5 weeks might not seem worthwhile but if you spend a week not applying because you're holding out hope online job that means you won't get paid for 6 weeks etc.
    #2 You can get an advance on your UC that's repaid via deductions.
    #3 You can still work part-time and claim UC.
    #4 If you don't sign on there's no evidence you were financially impacted by Corona Virus.

    By all means. I'm not sure exactly how to update it yet since the power level difference between Celestials and Dragon-Blooded isn't as big as it used to be.

    replied to Have you done cool stuff with Medicine ?
    The biggest issue I see with using amputation to gain leverage via wholeness-restoration is that your target would need to believe that your promise to heal them if they cooperate was actually worth anything, and, well your willingness to cut someone up is kind of a red flag for them trusting you.

    In my experience medicine shows up in Exalted games less than it logically should. It's weird with the incentives they created for Ex3 crafting that someone playing a doctor basically has to hope they'll stumble across sick and wounded people over the course of the story.

    I keep meaning to do a version that incorporates a version of Defence from Anathema Method as one of its Evocations.

    replied to Scary scary, gender roles are scary ~
    What's particularly useful is that it still works even if the mother in question is long dead, since you're not retconning their backstory so much as asking "who was your mother before she became your mother?" it just takes on a different tone if it's no longer possible to ask her....

    Something else to mention regarding gender roles and how I sometimes benefit from them as a Storyteller/GM.

    In my experience when I see a PCs backstory they might have a strong sense of who their father is/was as an aspirational figure or cautionary tale but their mother is frequently a non-entity either absent from the text or briefly presented in a way that suggests the player considers them boring.

    I don't directly challenge this but it can be fun to approach the backstory from a different angle to what the player anticipated and do something with the mother that fleshes...

  • It's just a little prodding. I initially put the emphisis on favourite but it got lost in the bolded mod text, edited for clarity.
