    replied to summoning exalted
    The easiest way to summon an Exalt is to go to the top of a tall tower and shout "the chosen of (x) are punks!!"

    This grants no control over the summoned Exalt and typically results in a clocked summoner.

  • Exactly this. Consequences are a big thing that's intended to be in Exalted, and the idea of 'reversing' things isn't supposed to be much; you can't un-kill a person, and you can't un-weaken the gods who invested in Exaltation. Ten Sheaves doesn't return to life because Strawmaiden Janest died....

  • I think of Dragon-Blooded exaltation as more literally a flame. A flame doesn't have to be handed off; I can touch my candle to yours and now we both have light. But you need a candle to begin with -- the potential for greatness and heroic spirit required to Exalt, and the line of unbroken inheritance from the firstborn of the Dragon-Blooded.

    This is why they are so much weaker as individuals; a Solar inherits an entire blazing lantern, while a Dragon-Blooded receives light from a candle. But they can then light that candle for their children to come, if those children make themselves...

  • Eh, it's a charm for a Twilight who wants to cast spells all day long. It might only be a 20% discount on a 50m Solar Circle spell [Ess 5 = 10m off] but that still means you can cast one more for every 4 a rival could cast, or can spend an hour less resting to recover, etc.

    Also Twilights kinda deserved that in 2e given the 2.0 anima....

    To expand on Vance's reply: Unblockable doesn't say "Your parry is penalized such that your defense is zero". It says "You Cannot Parry." Dipping Swallow, Bulwark, Fivefold Bulwark, etc. All inapplicable. If I read it right, the only melee charm that can be used to ameliorate the damage from it is Heavenly Guardian Defense, as I don't see any Solar Melee charms that say "Nuh-uh, I can too Parry". Similarly, Vaporous Division and Seven Shadow Evasion are your only recourses in Dodge to deal with an Undodgable attack - by blowing your once a scene safety net or...

    I personally say yes; a nice eye-candy wallflower, basically. You might be attractive to the eye but you're terrible at capitalizing on it to get people to actually listen instead of just admiring your body or passing you off as a vapid himbo not worth paying attention to, unless your words are particularly compelling [Man/Cha roll]....

  • Especially important because you can "fall in love" without seeing the whole picture. The guy who stands up for someone weaker than him, so heroic! .... Turns out he has a bad habit of looking for fights and provoking them, and standing up for people is just a means to the end of kicking someone's butt. The singer with the soulful voice and love song he wrote.. to get people into bed with him and then forget the night after leaving broken hearts behind.

    Not exactly fairy tale romances but people fall in love like that all the time, and it seems to be that the criteria...

  • I would say it's more one between combat and most other mechanics. If I need ten successes to lift a thing and I roll fifteen I don't lift that thing better or magically make the thing heavier to match my lift roll; the St might let me opt to lift something heavier nearby but that's house rules/ST call territory. I generally don't sneak "better" vs the guess I beat with Stealth if I beat them by one five or ten successes; I'm just protected if someone with better perception walks in. I'm having trouble bringing to mind many things where more threshold successes are better. Crafting...
