    Not a dev, but you might want to re-read the charm? You can use it on areas owned by other Exalted, you just need their consent....

    I'm also a bit confused in reading this, though it may just be because I'm not a native English speaker.
    How can someone agree to you performing a task in exchange for their shape, yet not be aware you are going to steal their shape?...

    I believe Elfive is refering to the fact that in Eska of the Seven Blades' statblock, her write-up of HBT has a duration of instant. In the new charm text, it appears as Indefinite, meaning the motes would be committed for the duration....

    So, the post for the first part of the manuscript preview tells us that we'll be getting the chapters on Tuesdays and the charms on Fridays. Because there were so many that they had to be done separately.
    I'm speculating that this means we'll get the rules for Lunar charms, dicecaps, and keywords, plus Universal charms (which I assume to be few enough in number to fit) alongside one attribute this Friday. Then, every next Friday will have two attributes worth of charms. No idea if this is actually the case, but it would make sense?
    EDIT: Well, upon looking at my calendar again, it...

    I'm not entirely sure what the calculations are, but I know they can use their excellency in animal shapes, but still use their own stats to calculate the pools. In addition, if the animal has more dice in a pool than the Lunar does, those extra dice count against her limit....

  • Rules and especially charms that let me play a terrifying shape-stealing monster Exalt with the power that implies. I want to play Lunars and feel like they are badass, powerful, and to understand why the Realm fears them so much. Not just feel like I'm playing "weaker solars".
    I would also love to see how Lunars handle social influence different that Solars and DB's.

    Oh, and I don't want every Lunar to be intimidating. But I want them to wield power that strikes fear in the hearts of an empire of ten-thousand dragon-blooded.

    No problem. I don't actually play a lot of Overwatch, but I quite enjoyed the animated trailers they did for the characters.
    And I agree Widowmaker being a sniper is a bit odd when you think about it.

    Now, since I just got off work and feel like writing...

    Shattered Grass was born in the Grass Spiders clan (WFHW p.126). Her mother was an outcaste Wood Aspect, her father a mortal. While she was trained for the possibility of Exaltation, she received no blessing from the Dragons. However, after refusing to go through with the assassination of an innocent politician,...

    But the fact that it is acknowledged, that people talk about it, that the devs say: this is something we want to include, these are ideas and concepts we want to stand behind, is incredibly important.
    Because even if that sidebar hadn't been there, even if Vance hadn't said anything, you could still play a transgender Lunar. But the fact that they say something, the fact they write something and put it in the book and say "this is something we care about" is incredibly important (to me, at least).
    I don't think many people in the LGBTQ community want riots and massive changes....

    Vance, thank you. Thank you so much. I am not trans myself, but someone in my close family is, and I've seen them struggle with it for decades.
    This small but important details means a ton to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart....

    Widowmaker

    Abyssal Day Caste who uses her feminine charm to trick her victims and their bodyguards. Though her compassion and attraction may seem genuine, the only time she feels emotion is when she kills her targets. Her tools of the trade focus on ranged weapons and poison.

    Okay, slightly cheating because it's not from Spiderman, it's from Overwatch. Still spider-inspired, so I feel it works?

  • The plan is that Hundred Devils and Adversaries will be a complete book and will be released as such. Onyx Path just releases the content piecemeal as well. If you own all the individual PDF's you will get the PDFs for the final books at a discount/for free (I'm not sure what exactly they've said on this, but I believe the intent is that you don't have to pay for it twice).

    Still not showing on the Monday Meeting Notes page for me for some reason? Might be a cached version... regardless, HYPE!
    Also, Feb 12. That's so fast! I was expecting late Feb at the earliest, but that's just two weeks from now! Nice!

    Oh, the next one is going to be a fun one. Looking forward to your reaction.

    So, I know I said I was pretty sure last time... but in the comments for last weeks MMN it was made pretty clear the next Kickstarter will be announced today.
    And going by the post on the Dragon-Blooded Kickstarter... the hype is real. here's hoping it's less than a full month until it starts....

    Seems like something that is not beyond the reach of a Twilight Caste, but certainly not at the drop of a hat.
    I would assume a scientist would have Lore supernal. Depending on how the ST wants to handle things, Occult could also work, as could Craft. Each has systems to model "being smart" as a superpower....

    So, unless no one in your group can interact with dematerialized beings, I think that TheCount's suggestion is a good one.
    Give it a few powers that it can use to lure people while dematerialized. Mortals will have an incredibly hard time finding it, but most Exalts can deal with it....

    So, the new update for the Dragon-Blooded Kickstarter is suggesting rather subtly that Lunars will be the next Kickstarter, and comments on the Monday Meeting Notes made by RichT seem to indicate the same.

    My body is ready, my wallet isn't.

    Fair enough if that's the case, but my brain has been in the hype cycle for lunars since the core dropped. So I can't wait. I was somewhat surprised to see no new Kickstarter announced with the newest MMN....

    Right. But it's reasonable to assume they will tell us what Kickstarter is next in tomorrow's Monday Meeting Notes, right? So if it isn't Lunars we will know it's going to be late April at the soonest....
