  • Right. Well, that's a shame, I feel like I enjoy the artifact a lot less now.

    In any event, thanks to everyone who contributed to this conversation!

  • The problem I have with this is that I don't see the artifact as being presented this way? To me, it feels like the writer is trying to present it as a tool for self-improvement without seeing the darker side, which causes narrative dissonance for me. I have no problems with the Lunars (or any Exalt) wielding powers that I personally consider "evil", it's just that the artifact as presented in the book doesn't seem to acknowledge this side of the artifact at all, which I find strange?...

  • I made a number of these points myself yesterday when discussing the artifact. The problem is that ultimately, it seems inconsistent to have an artifact that adds only self-loathing be prized as one of learning and growth.


    My problem isn't with the Lunars being monsters, Lunars make awesome monsters. The problem is that the text to me feels like it's describing this heroic and enlightening artifact without explaining the conflict in resonance.

    Yeah, I think that this is the biggest problem for me. It's not that the artifact can't be either as helpful as it's being...

  • I can see that being the case, but in that case, I would've preferred them to just say as much. Right now it feels very contradictory, with a narrative that seems inspiring but ends up feeling quite dark and twisted once you analyze it, and charms that reflect that.

    Certainly, and even if the mirror doesn't get changed I'll probably be making changes in my home game to reflect the above.

    Honestly, I'm just kind of confused, since I'm not sure what message the writer wants me to read? If it's meant to be a tool for learning and growth, the narrative needs to change. If...

    Some concerns with Penumbra Gleam from Lunars

    So, I'd like to start this by saying that I don't hold any ill will towards any of the writers. I believe that the current story of Penumbra Gleam could use some improvements, but I don't consider it a disaster.

    I was recently discussing character concepts with a friend of mine and we started talking about Penumbra Gleam, from the Lunars manuscript. I was quite surprised to hear that they strongly disliked the artifact and after more than an hour of discussion I understand what they mean and I agree with them.
    Essentially, my friend rightly claims that the way the artifact's...

  • I don't necessarily agree, I also think that I've played a bunch of sorcerers that were Solars (because Solars were the only thing that was out) and now I'm playing Lunars and want to try out Lunar stuff.

    To answer the question: I've played a little with Lunars, I really like it. Like all of Third Edition, I think the changes that are made are great and have me very excited. However, because of IRL reasons, I haven't had a group in over a year, so I've done some 1-on-1 stuff with Lunars but haven't seen how they play out in a group....
