    I realize this may be more difficult to do from a technical perspective now that I've thought on it for a bit.

    I'll just scramble my password. Close enough.

    See ya.

    Account deletion?

    I would like to delete my account. I do not like this place.

    How do I go about doing that?

    P.S. Has the "navbar_onyx_path" thing always been there? It must've. That should probably be taken care of on the webdesign (firefox user, if that helps)

    Okay. We cannot have another discussion about how just terrible 3e's mechanics are. We're not turning this thread into that. I'm mentioning the word "Craft" and somewhere something explodes in a ball of rage and angry conflict that I just don't want to deal with.

    For me, and from all my personal observations, any newcomer who looks at Exalted's rules goes "[EXPLITIVE] NO! Never in a million years!" and that is a problem. As far as my non-statistical, non-omnipotent eyes can see, Exalted is coasting on people who super duper love it no matter how terrible it is....

    I'm keeping tabs on it. Obviously I can't truly gauge it until its released, but from what I can gather I think they're falling into the same traps 3e did, while just going on a sideways of complexity.

    Plus the fact that it is a side, one-time book, rather than the main line concerns me. They can't possibly fit all of Exalted into one book without sacrificing way too much. I'm not liking the idea of just generic "close combat" and "ranged combat" for example.

    Maybe it'll be good? I don't know yet. But even if it is we still have to deal with the main...

    So the entire point of "This line has a glacial development speed of dubious quality material" is just glossed over there? I think I've made it abundantly clear that I think the problems with Exalted run core deep, and that is contributing to its both real slow development speed.

    As well, I should mention that the lack of certain key materials makes the absence of material felt more harshly. For instance, I consider the game incomplete without the "core 5" Exaltations--Solars, Lunars, Sidereals, Dragonbloods, and Abyssals. You may disagree, but for mixed party...

    What a shocker me, as a person, is posting my opinion. It's almost as if that's the dictionary definition of a forum or something....

    In my mind Exalted 3rd Edition has already failed.

    It's a zombie product....

    Look, even if we extrapolate out just from the Fatsplat release schedule so far, it's like... a Fatsplat every 1.5 years. Maybe every 1 year. That means that just to get what was promised delivered, we're looking at anywhere from 2027 to 2031. That's a long time! No schedule slip, no nothing. No new ideas. Just to deliver on what was promised.

    I have no proof that there will be any accelleration of release schedule. Frankly, the opposite is always what happens. What happens if developers find a new job and you have to bring someone onboard?

    I find this schedule unacceptable,...

    I....did. Literally linked to the wikipedia page of books and their time. Previous editions have been about 6-8 years according to it, and we're well into that with 3e.

    Point is 3e is well behind on its release schedule, as everyone knows that, no need to keep harping on it. I just think it's an inherint problem with thr core of Exalted and should be addressed, rather than continue with zombie production....

    I think modularity is the best way to handle such a beast as this. And making "modding"/homebrew easier.

    I feel I need to remind that I didn't write Nocturnals. I just promote it and did some editing. As for the Eternals, I dunno. I wanted to take a look at them but I don't feel right paying for a product for an ended edition, for a product I don't know the quality of. It seems it could be interesting?...

    Exalted needs a Revamp

    I pop in here every so often to check up on Exalted Essence and remind people how great Nocturnals are, and I was just struck with the realization when reading all the Essence comments:

    Exalted needs a full, head to toe revamp. I think OPP just needs to bite the bullet and halt 3e, take a step back, and redesign everything from the ground up.


    The game has become so large and sprawling in concept that it's become an unmanageable beast to tame. Even peeking at Exalted: Essence, it looks like even that slimming down will still be a huge beast of a system.

    I will always mention Reminiscent Oasis's Nocturnals for 2e.
