  • I suspect that most members of the Inner Council honestly do believe that the Antediluvians are "just" very powerful Kindred. Some of them were walking around as recently as a thousand years ago. It's not like they were openly ruling the world as blood gods or anything. Plus, when you stop to consider how many have apparently died, it's clear that they're not invincible or anything.

    I suspect most members of the Inner Council really do believe that if an Antediluvian woke up and tried doing things, they could simply be dealt with. Just convince some fighter pilot to "accidentally"...

  • I think they just find the whole Antediluvian thing annoying more than anything else and choose to avoid talking about it. They know the clan founders exist (or at least existed), but they also don't believe they're are horrible monsters who are going to wake up and eat everyone. Some members of the Inner Council may even remember having conversations with one Antediluvian or another. Ultimately they just view them as powerful vampires, but the idea of being afraid of them waking up and starting Gehenna and destroying the world is just silly. "Cappadocius was weird and creepy and kind of...

    Officially, none of the printed Solars were ever stated to canonically possess an Exalted that had once been joined with a Deathlord. This was to always leave it open as a possibility that one of your PC's might have an Exaltation once possessed by a Deathlord, and filling that in by having an NPC hold that role is not much fun. That said, Desus, the Silver Prince and Swan were all heavily implied to have shared one incarnation.

    Holden is no longer associated with OPP and no longer working on Exalted. They had a rather bad falling out. While it's possible the might choose to revisit the story someday in the future as a fan, it seems pretty unlikely. Maybe you could shoot him an email and ask him if he would mind giving you a quick outline of what he was thinking about if you're looking for closure though....

  • In my Dragon Blooded games, I found that players of Wood and Water Aspects tended to invest heavily outside of their Aspect Abilities more than players of Air or Fire Aspects. Earth players seemed to go either way depending on character concept....

    replied to On "Chicanery"
    One of the nice things about RPGs is that just because something is technically allowed under the game rules doesn't mean it's mandatory that an ST accepts it as his table. Even in Pathfinder Society (which is generally as close as you can get to an "official" roleplaying experience with judges and such) Game Masters are given enough leeway that they can refuse to allow stuff in their game that may be currently legal under the rules, when it's obviously broken.

    So if some player discovers an unexpected combination between Charms that, I don't know, allows them to gain 100...

    This. The idea of the Chicanery-No Charms comes down to the simple idea that Exalted is supposed to be fun for everyone. Sure you might be able to come up with some combination of Charms that creates a loophole in the rules and blows the game apart and by doing it you'll have the most fun ever. But if your fun will come at the expense of the ST's or the rest of the player's fun, then you absolutely should not be a dick and you shouldn't do it and the ST is free to say, "Nope."

    So it's definitely a meta-game concept built on the idea that Exalted is a group activity for fun...

    She shows up at the end of Graceful Wicked Masks. Jaguar calls her Princess and evidently stole her Sword Grace back before the Usurpation. I don't believe we ever learn anything else about her though.

  • In Nexus one of the ancient Solar tombs is made from a blistering hot stone that will melt anyone or anything that comes in contact with it. People in Nexus, being a practical bunch, turned sections of the tomb's surface into a massive forge, allowing their steel workers to smelt metals at unmatched temperatures. This is noted as fairly unique in the setting, and why Nexus' steel is widely considered some of the finest steel in Creation.

    I don't necessarily see an issue with a Sorcerer using a Working to accomplish something somewhat similar, like a typical forge-fire that doesn't...

  • Yeah. If a PC were to turn against the players it would probably be for a deeply personal reason. So without knowing anything about the character or their backstory, it's hard to come up with any sort of reason. Try posting a bit more and I'm sure someone will be able to come up with something.

    replied to Games Discussion/What Are You Playing?
    Yeah. I was always a big Metroid back (Super Metroid was my game back in the SNES era) and Metroid Fustion was amazing, especially with the storyline (at the time). When Metroid Prime first came out, and they were converting the series to 3D I was deeply suspicious. But damned if Metroid Prime wasn't one of the best games I ever played. So I'm pretty stoked about a new Metroid Prime game, provided it can live up well to its predecessors....

  • I remember on the old forums this sort of question came up a few times. The most common explanation was that Saulot's lower soul was in control of him.

    When Saulot was in the East he studied under Xu, the greatest philosopher among the Kuei-jin. While vampires have Beasts, with Kuei-jin their Po, their lower souls are evil and malicious, but just as smart as they are. When their Po takes control of their actions, a Kuei-jin enters Shadow Soul and often begins working against himself. It seems that while Saulot was studying with Xu, he somehow managed to awaken his lower soul. His...

    In the end most werewolves are going to accept that a new werewolf (even a 'gnawer) is more valuable than a three or four humans. It's unfortunate the newly changed werewolf killed them, but Rage is a fact of life, and a young pup can't really be held responsible for not being able to control himself. If he had been an experienced werewolf and knew what he was and killed some people that might be a different story. But I doubt the caern would agree to any particularly harsh punishment of a young werewolf who had no idea what he was doing. Certainly nothing like executing the poor kid.

    While Sacha Baron Cohen may have sang a about throwing Jews down the well as part of his Borat character, that was actually based on historical incidents. Mobs would get together and throw Jews or other people they hated or thought were witches or whatever into the local well. Why? I couldn't say. Sometimes people do things that don't make much logical sense. But unfortunately those sorts of incidents happened, and they weren't as uncommon as we might wish that they were.

    And yeah, this myth about the spooky Well Man probably cropped up to help people steer clear of the wells that...

  • In the farthest reaches of the East rests the head of the World Dragon, a being so massive that it encircles all of Creation. Every night, when the temperature begins to drop, the World Dragon finds itself growing cold. He breaths out a small blast of flame and starts a fire to keep himself warm. However over the course of the night, the fire feeds upon the endless trees of the Pole of Wood and eventually grows so massive that it burns the World Dragon's nose. He sneezes, sending the massive ball of flame soaring through the air to the other side of Creation. As it travels the ball of fire begins...

    I was in a game once where a Nosferatu who had learned Vissicitude had made a Masquerade breaking swarm of monstrous ghouled flying leeches. Dealing with them was no bueno.

    So villages would toss people down the well. Then a week or so later they'd go drink out of the well and get sick and die. And then they'd blame the spooky well man and accuse it of making them sick. I love Medieval Europe so much.

    Personally, if it were for my game, I'd be tempted to set the well man up as a god who gets angry when people toss corpses and other junk down in the well and mess up his home. So he sends the ghosts of the people who died in the well back to get revenge, so that people will eventually stock mucking up his office space....

  • With Batman (or any other similar character) you have to first decide which iteration you're looking at. Sometimes Batman in the comics Batman is basically just a street level hero, a smart, well trained guy who puts on a mask and punches robbers in the face. Other times he's the smartest guy in the universe who builds super-suits so he can fly through space and punch demigods in the face.

    Ultimately Batman tends to get by on narrative power rather than super powers. He's not nearly anywhere near as fast or strong as other superheroes or villains, but the story's narrative always...
