    replied to Survey: Where is your 3rd ed game set?
    My Solar campaign is set in the North, and has been fairly wide-ranging in that direction; the Circle's home base is near the northern part of the Haslanti league, but they've gone as far south as Medo and are currently in Whitewall.

    replied to Dice pools for lying
    As I read it, the Challenge a Fact rules use Lore-based information to expose the lie, but the lie itself doesn't necessarily have to be academic in nature. So, like, at my table I'd allow a character with an appropriate Lore background to say "You're not actually an Imperial courier, your badge is fake, Imperial courier badges are all made from metal mined in a certain Prefecture and that badge is the wrong alloy, I can tell because I'm a metallurgist" or something, but it'd be tough to sell me on a Lore-based challenge to "I saw him betray us and I killed him".

    Judge's Ear Technique (core, pg. 312) says "Any magic which contests this effect goes to a roll-off against the Lawgiver’s (Perception + Investigation), with (Essence) automatic successes on the
    Solar’s roll, and 1s in the opposed roll acting as 10s to the Solar’s result."

    But when someone's lying to you, aren't you usually rolling against their Guile? Guile is a static value, there's no 1s in any pool to act as 10s on the Solar's result.

  • For my Chronicle, I used "You all meet in the shattered ruins of the fortress-palace Manse that once belonged to your First Age incarnations, and has haunted your dreams since Exaltation" as the Exalted equivalent to "I dunno, you all meet in an inn". Because the characters kind of come from all over the place, and I needed them to be a Circle.
