    replied to The problem with Shadowlands
    We never got rules for making Shadowlands in any of the editions and this was important. It's exactly as hard to make a Shadowland as the ST decides it is. yes, big battles where lots of people die, or ritually torturing and killing people can open a Shadowland, but it's not a science. In general it is supposed to be easier to make Shadowlands than to cure them, in the same way that it's easier to break things than fix them, but that doesn't mean that creating Shadowlands is piece of cake either.

    Just some general thoughts.

    The issue, of course, is that the Unconquered Sun is not an active player in the events of the world. This is an important part of Exalted's setting. The Unconquered Sun isn't going to come down and stop someone from misusing their power, he's not going to come down and stop the forces of Darkness from overrunning the world, he's not going to do anything. Your characters are the ones who need to get shit done, And having the Unconquered Sun (or any of the Incarna) show up and solve all the problems while the PC's look on with a look of awe on their face...

    replied to Becoming Terrestrial Exalted
    While there are countless ways for a Sorcerer to modify his own mind, body or soul (or those of someone else) Exaltation (of any sort) should be a unique miracle and blessing that is beyond the ability of Sorcery (or any other player tool) to bestow on someone.



    Absolutely....

    replied to Share your Methods of Empowerment
    One NPC Abyssal warlord who showed up in a game had a set of hundreds of small, soulsteel spikes. He could place ghosts in the spikes, then shove the spikes into a human, and the human would gain some of the powers of the trapped ghost, using it to fuel unique Charms or otherwise absorbing its capabilities. The ghost would burn out over time (you could generally get 10 uses before that happened). The Abyssal would capture the ghosts of his enemies and use them to fuel his army, allowing his mortals to be much stronger than they should be. Of course the human body couldn't handle that amount of...

    replied to Reforging the Jade Prison
    The Jade Prison is mentioned in the 3rd edition corebook though whether it's an actual prison or more a metaphorical one in 3rd edition is still a bit up in the air.

    As to recreating it I would say it's basically impossible. That the Jade Prison was a one-time only artifact crafted under unique circumstances that simply cannot be reasonably recreated or repaired outside of ST fiat.

    As to trapping a single Exaltation, I would allow a 5 dot artifact to temporarily trap an Exaltation for no more than a year and a day, and say it would take an NA artifact to trap one for...

    replied to Gods and Goddesses you have crushes on?
    There were a ton of virgin goddesses in Greek mythology - Artemis, Hestia, Astraea, and probably plenty more whom I am forgetting. And yeah, Artemis was especially close to other women. I always imagined that some of these goddesses weren't interested in laying with men and were more interested in women, but like you said the Greeks hadn't really put a name to it yet....

    Please don't thank me too much if you plan to keep up your line of argument which is incredibly distasteful and pretty offensive. I understand the bigger point you're trying to make but, wow, you are picking a terrible way to go about it. Just stop for a bit and reflect on why you are coming off as a bit of a ass....

    replied to You Know What I Hate MK I
    I'm a big fan of self-defense, and think that if someone finds themself, or their family, or their friends, or their property under assault or immediate threat of physical harm, they should be able to defend those in any way possible, up to and including through the use of lethal force. But attacking and possibly killing someone simply because you believe that they may pose a threat to you at some nebulous point in the future feels like it's getting pretty far away from a definition of "self-defense" that I can comfortably get behind. It reminds me too much of W. Bush's justifications...

  • Why not pick a Wood Aspect terrestrial sorcerer? Most any niche you could imagine an Exigent filling a game is a niche another Exalt could fill just as well (and would have been fulfilling if Exigents didn't exist)....

    replied to Gods and Goddesses you have crushes on?
    I always liked Persephone a lot, what with her duel nature as both a goddess of the spring and the queen of the underworld. She was probably the goddess I always found the most interesting, so if I had to pick one I had a crush on it would probably be her.

  • First, remember that all Exalted can solve any problem. You aren't going to come across a problem that can't be "solved" by a Solar, or a Lunar or anyone else. If the ST essentially decides that the "problem" for his campaign is defeating the Mask of Winters and freeing Thorns, any Exalted type that the players are playing will be able to succeed. The difference will be in the process of how they succeed. Whether one player is playing a Solar or a Sidereal or an Exigent of Masque of Repose isn't going to change their ability to "solve" the problem, just how they go...

    I like the idea of the Thing as well, as a thing, but many of the details were poorly thought out. Still, the basic idea that every now and again a majority of the Infernal Exalted get together in Malfeas to hash out differences, work out new plans, catch up with one another and network with various demons or hellish powers is really cool, helps to make the Infernal play experience a bit more interesting and I'd be rather sad if that was something that the Infernal Exalted no longer did....

    replied to What is the Realm were more like Lookshy?
    Lookshy does have the Academy of Sorcery, which is one of the foremost schools of Sorcery in Creation and in many respects second only to the Heptagram. And, again, it's sorcerers mostly all stay in one city after they graduate whereas the Heptagram's graduates travel throughout the Realm and beyond. In theory, Lookshy should have one of the largest concentrations of sorcerers in the entire setting, assuming of course that the Academy of Sorcery is still a thing in 3rd edition, like it was back in 1st and 2nd edition.

    replied to What is the Realm were more like Lookshy?
    Keep in mind that with the DB population ratio, this was explained back in 1st edition. Lookshy has the goal of having as many Dragon Blooded as possible. Marriages are arranged for the purposes of popping out little baby DB's. The breeding background cost more points to purchase, because any Breeding rating above 2 was very rare in Lookshy. Meanwhile in the Realm, marriages are often held for the purposes of political arrangements. Further, when it comes to Dragon Blooded, the goal was to have higher Breeding dragon blooded.

    Plus of course, as mentioned there are also...

    replied to Auto-kun must be stopped!
    I seem to remember back when Time of Tumult was released, and we first saw the Autochthonians and Autochthonia, Grabowski said that he had always intended for Autochthon to have played a role in the creation of the Celestial and Terrestrial Exalted, but that it didn't feel like it was something that was necessary to put in the core book since by this point in the Second Age, even the greatest scholars in the world would be hard pressed to recall who Autochthon was. As such, spending too much time talking about him in the core book would have not been a good use of word count, especially since...

    Just out of curiosity, do you (or anyone else) happen to have a link to an article talking about the multiple drive-by shootings from a van with KKK markings? That seems like it would be a big thing, and my aunt had also heard about this over twitter, but we haven't been able to find any sort of official news report or police report corroborating it. She's trying to find out everything she can about what happened that day but sometimes separating the wheat from the chaff that comes in over social media is pretty hard.

    Just found out one of my younger cousins was at the protests in Charlottesville and not with the counter-protesters. He said he was going on a vacation, but then his family saw him in pictures on the news standing with the fucking neo-Nazi's holding one of those stupid tiki torches. Also, he's half-Hispanic so I don't know what the fuck is going through his head. He hasn't been answering anyone's calls, his dad said if he ever sees my cousin again he's going to shoot him, and his mom is a total wreck.

  • To be fair, in Immaculate-controlled territory, the Immaculates don't deny the existence of gods. In fact, they quite often speak about the dangers of personally praying to gods rather than relying on the Immaculates to do so. But everyone knows during the big festivals, when the Immaculates offer prayers to the gods, and the gods respond appropriately, that the gods exist. They just understand that it's not the place of humans to directly pray to gods but rather to rely on Dragon Blooded as intermediaries.

    And again, when you offer prayers to Deity A and nothing happens, and your...
