  • Considering the crux of Exalted is "All-too-human heroes with phenomenal powers" and not "secret aliens taking over hollowed-out human shells as puppets", yes. Merely mortal, no, but still human at the core.



    2e had Impossible Attribute Improvement, E5, allowed +1 over cap. DBT allowed cap breaking, but to +1 more, +2 with terrifying ogre. So an 8, total; af ar cry from "All stats at 10 and +10 more from DBT".
    Oh, and Flawless Attribute Focus, but with destacking of specialties, that's 9, and only if the specialty is omniapplicable...

    replied to How many Intimacies are too many?
    To elaborate on Weimann's point: Every intimacy is a double-edged sword. You can use them to defend against influence that would be oppositional to them, but each leaves you potentially exposed to influence as well. With that in mind, they're definitely more 'interesting RP potential' than 'secretly breaking the game'....

    Long as it doesn't mechanically inconvenience them ["You need to take a special Draw/Ready action to dislodge it, wasting a turn or taking arbitrarily assigned Flurry penalties to dislodge and attack simultaneously"], that's just more stunt fodder, and thus All In Good Fun.

    Personal tendency: Dynasty Warriors. Weapons are at the upper end of normal size without being quite so ridonk huge as the axe or hammer up there. They have human hand-sized grips, but typically larger blades or striking surfaces, and tend to be more proportional to the wielder.

    I see it as being like a critical threat in D&D. Sure, I could just add a die for every 10 in my pool and call it good. But to some people it feels better to grab all their 10s, say "Okay, 13 successes..." Roll those 5 dice again and get another 3 successes. It engages them with the roll more. Sometimes it's a more significant result and sometimes you don't roll any 10s and so don't explode any of them.



    Not me specifically, but some people find the high degree of reliability / low degree of explosivity [the "natural 20" feeling] makes the...

    "Reroll X" either effectively increases your pool size by roughly 10% [if X is a success] or decreases your chance of failure per die by 1/6. It also provides potential protection against an enemy's "On X, get this bonus". "For every 1 in your pool, I get a bonus success!" "Aha, but I rerolled all my 1s!" "Blast!"

    Most people cite the reason for using dice in RPGs as a means to implement uncontrolled random numbers, to create chaos. This is ostensibly one reason the d20 system is so popular, it's one of the more random, inconsistent...
