  • Well we have some early scratching around the concept of Progenive Essence before it was named such. Most notably Tepet Leseral (Exalted: the Dragon-Blooded pg 117) who was pushing her body beyond its normal capacity to have children until she died of old age at 102. If the civil war wasn't so imminent I could see House Tepet looking into trying to recreate her 'success' in order to replenish their numbers....

    To reiterate, my horse in this race is what a Lunar could potentially do vs. what Lunars have already done.

    To me there's value in a PC breaking new ground and meeting with gods who had assumed the Lunar Exalted died out at the end of the First Age and the actions of any hypothetical Lunar NPCs who got there before them should be measured against that.

    It's a different scenario to the Heavens Dragons because they need the words to avoid being Kejak's bitches and escape two editions of Yu-Shan not really viewing them as people....

    We don't know his exact status, I remember being disapointed by Marilaq a'Lam because I thought the idea of Malfeas having an ambassador in Yu-Shan might open the way to an Infernal Exalt eventually holding the position. Unfortunately Marilaq was both a prisoner and another in a long, long line of Yozi trojan horses, that doesn't mean my dreams of cold war style politics between Heaven and Hell were crushed but that if it happens it'll be in spite of her not because of her....

  • Also from this week.
    • Evil costume changes are apparently quite easy to find, is there a clothing outlet that specialises nearby?
    • Hunting Fox discovers the perils of trying to sell Daiklaves on the open market.
    • Worried about Seven Blasphemous Deaths now that the writing seems to have remembered she's female, I half-expected to see the sword blush at one point.

    Another ongoing plot element. This one's major as it enables other smaller plots to work.

    The New Underworld
    Towards the end of last edition Stygia was destroyed by infighting among the Deathlords and destabilised the entire Underworld in the process. A super storm called the Malestrom interferes with necromancy and makes fast transport virtually impossible. Nobody has seen the Deathlords themselves since this whole thing went down and even fear isn't enough to stop their organisations from coming to pieces without them. The number of Abyssals who've gone completely rogue is...

    A major thing that the Nuckelavee has going for it as an enemy is that it's probably pretty infamous. It's played a role in the destruction of three settlements and hasn't left the general area in at least a decade. There's no way it's not crossed paths with fully trained Huntsmen (besides the one that Team RNJR found dying) it apparently came off best.

    The tone still felt more like something from one of the earlier volumes....

    Also on the wiki front. This one has been around since at least 2005, it's more difficult to format which is why it fell out of favour but it's clearly stood the test of time....

    Yes, it happened 5 years ago and it sucked. But that's an argument to save information in as many places as there are available....

    This thread's reminded me how much I've enjoyed that show and that the fact it's going to be part of an Arcadia trilogy with Three Below and Wizards kind of makes me want to see a Guillermo del Toro's World of Darkness.

    Just a thought, but you might want to start adding wiki entries - this thread's already a bit on the long side and won't necessarily be the first thing people remember to back up if there's another forum migration.

    The choreography on the Nuckelavee fight wasn't the greatest, but as an enemy it managed to overcome how utterly unthreatening the Grimm have been to me since the end of Volume 2 and the technical limitations didn't create storytelling problems like the Battle of Mistral did.

    We don't know enough about their culture yet.


    This is part of why I'm a little wary about them existing. Giving the Bronze Faction their own Dragon-Blooded Gens is probably the worst thing you could do with the concept....

    Note, I'm drawing a distinction between finally getting backstory for the main antagonist and the return of a popular character who'd previously had a total screen time measured in minutes.

    One of those was necessary, the other wasn't but it is a fan pleasing move....

  • I'm kind of with the monk right now, he's been pondering the value of human lives but now he's realised he's in a world written by Gen Urobuchi where nobody without plot armour is making it out the season alive and decided if he can't make a good impression, he can at least make a lasting one.

    Pangu's a Prefecture on the Blessed Isle. Pangu City is where House Cynis has their stronghold.

    Another issue I'm seeing.

    The main reason I'd want to play a Lunar who lived in Yu-Shan would be because they were in a game with Sidereal characters. If the Silver Pact has agents up there who are essentially vandalising the Bureau of Destiny, it's more likely that hypothetical character concept would suffer pushback from the Storyteller or be veto'd outright.

    I think it's more likely I'd encounter that than a game about a pack of Lunars sabotarging Heaven.

    This really does feel like the "we listened to the fans" volume, what with Neo's return and what appears to be a Grimm threat on a par with the Nuckelavee.

    I think it's risking making Yu-Shan just another battle ground.
    I'm already a little wary of the Heaven's Dragons, the notion of bringing in Heaven's Lunars to fight them just confounds the concerns I have there.

    Ah I missed that. That fits the Realm much better than the Sidereals....
