    More or less, yes. There will probably be some niche things it won't be able to do. For example, while you might be able to gain limited authority and judgement over ghosts, more blatant manipulation of the Underworld would probably be off-limits and belong only to Soulsteel. But in general I suspect that many of the ideas that someone comes up with an artifact could be done with Orichalcum.

    Of course, at the same time, who cares? Since Solars are resonant with all materials, their choice of material when making a weapon is honestly more like a fashion statement or a personal statement...

    The World of Darkness was incredibly progressive for a 90's roleplaying game. It had gay people. And transexuals. And minorities. And it had a fairly positive portrayal of religious groups and all manner of other people. I mean, holy shit it was really progressive and liberal. Of course, it also had some pretty racist elements as well as other material that, in hindsight, was pretty egregious.

    I think the big issue is that a lot of the material was written back during the 90's by a dude who was more interested in making "cool" groups to include in his game, and designing...

    Volcano Cutter is a Red Jade Daiklave, not an Orichalcum one. At the same time though, it wouldn't really matter. Looking at the write-up of Orichalcum, that magical material would allow you to perform the exact same kind of feats as Red Jade in regard to "terrestrial phenomena." So yeah, Stormcaller's powers are well within Orichalcum's wheelhouse....

    I hope something like this will appear in a sidebar in the Arms book, making it very clear that this mechanic is not so much about shitting on Dragon Blooded or making them second class Exalted but rather is important for maintaining balance in Dragon Blooded games. Otherwise I expect to see lots of people misunderstanding this and interpreting it in the most negative way possible....

  • So, this anime season is winding down. I watched several shows and there were 3 that I ended up enjoying quite a bit.

    The first was the second season of Konosuba. Unfortunately it was made by a different studio than season one and had a new director. The source material was good enough that it managed to hold the show together, but the 2nd season was strictly worse than the 1st in pretty much every way. Still entertaining, but nowhere near as good.



    The second show I enjoyed a lot was Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. One day the main character, Kobyashi wakes up,...

    Yeah. The only way I can imagine someone being willing to take a Resonant heavy weapon would be if they find it during play and have no real choice in the matter. But if a player does have a choice, they're probably going to take another option than something that will give them that kind of penalty.

    For example, someone might have the idea of a Liminal who can summon up storms of black clouds and crackling lightning, and so Stormcaller would be a good way to do that. At the same time though, I suspect the player would simply say, "I gave myself Artifact 5. He has a Soulsteel...

    Yes, thank you both. I hope you will be willing to continue to contribute to Exalted, but if not, at the least I hope you guys don't quit the RPG industry entirely. I'd like to see what other material you can come up with in the future.

    I admit, I'm not a huge fan of the Crafting system, but honestly it sounds like this should be abstracted into a Superior Project somehow, rather than having him roll for each individual batch of spears.

    There are some RPG's where I may allow in-character fighting, but only if the in-character fighting is a major point to the game and all of the players are on board with it. For most RPGs though (including Exalted) I steer clear from any kind of actual in-character physical fighting between players. I've had issues with people getting mad at one another when a party member was killed by another player, games ending, friendships ending, etc. For me, it's just not worth risks 99% of the time.

    That said, I'm glad you and your group are enjoying it and I hope it keeps working out pretty...

    Well now that you've selfishly hogged both of the options, Vance can't choose either. He's going to be stuck saying he goes commando or wears a banana hammock or something.



    Excellent, I can't wait! And have fun with the clockwork birds. I do hope one of them is a nightingale. That was always one of my more favorite stories from Anderson....

    Nice, alright, that sounds reasonable to me. I was just fairly curious if the Resonant/Dissonant issue was purely an out-of-game one for ease of use, or if it was a reflection of certain in-setting conceits like like the Mastery and Terrestrial keywords are for Martial Arts and therefore represented a shift in the fundamental idea behind Evocations....

    Vance and Minton. I'm going to lob you guys a soft ball question to start out, and then ask something more difficult.

    Boxers or briefs? This is important because it strikes the the heart of the sort of people who will be running the Exalted line.

    And then next question since I know if I don't ask, someone else will. What is your opinion on having a development process that is a bit more open to the community? I notice you posted that little Arms of the Chosen preview. Is that something we can generally expect will happen in the future, or will this be just a one time...

    This honestly looks pretty fucking great.

    The system of Resonant and Dissonant are obviously just the Mastery and Terrestrial keywords for Evocations. Some people may complain, "But it's just this other system!" but honestly I think that's a good thing. It makes Evocations much easier to understand and more intuitive when you're looking over them. No need to remake the wheel when you already have a useful system that functions. In fact, making too many new wheels can make things feel unnecessarily intimidating and confusing to new players when every single branch has its...

    Well, White Wolf certainly drew inspiration from real life for that one at least.

    It's the World of Darkness. You're going to end up with all kinds of conflicts, some of them pretty ugly. Also, unless everyone in Asia is members of the same race (which clearly they're not) then it's as much of a race war as the fighting between Vampires and Werewolves.

    Regardless, the idea of the invasion always made sense to me. Many Kuei-jin taking part in the invasion of California were re-born during the Colonial era, when Asians were treated horrifically by many western nations, including he US. Quite a few others were re-born during eras of western Imperialistic wars, such...

    To be fair, most of the splats are fairly antagonistic with one another. Werewolves, vampires, changelings... Kuei-jin aren't any different so of course, when they come across vampires the bullets fly. So there's going to be conflict between Vampires and Kuei-jin, the same way that there is going to be conflict between Vampires and everyone else, or even vampires and other vampires where you can see some series correlations to immigration worries.

    I mean, the Sabbat is literally carrying out an invasion of the US through Mexico.

    I keep waiting for some Prince to give...

    Oh, for sure anyone is entitled to any opinion they want. But acting like a jerk is still acting like a jerk, regardless of what sort of opinion someone might have. We only have toreador4ever's side of the story, but when you show up in someone's game, and they're obviously willing to work with you over an issue, and you make huge demands and then insult them, that's just being a jerk, not being someone with empathy.

    So I feel that the people in toreador4ever's game were simply jerks using the Ravnos issue as an excuse to engage in jerk-like behavior, putting him down and patting...
