    replied to Homosexuality in Exalted second edition
    He gets a handful of words in Wonders of the Lost Age, referring to him and Ragara Szaya as a married couple. This, of course, is a true statement of fact and not introducing anything new. They are not denotated as heterosexual, but for someone not familiar with the characters as presented in 1e, the connotations of a married couple of opposing genders probably include heterosexuality.

    I am not making a new point, by the way. But Kes does exist in 2e beyond that one comic....

    I am not sure if you are replying to me, but I would like to state for the record that I never stated - or insisted - that Ses - as a gay man - could not have a child. Nor did I say that 2e made him straight and much less that they did so explicitly.

    I am sure there other ways that I may have misstepped, though, and for that I apologize. I am working on a feminist post-structural discourse analysis project analyzing Exalted second edition, I noticed something I had not noticed before, and I thought people might find it interesting. As I have stated before, I am neither trying to complain...

    Well, I won't miss them. I expected Lillun (and, really, all of the Infernal sigs as well) to be removed as Infernals are getting a much-needed do-over, but I had not heard of Desus. Cool....

    Probably when my players found an Orichalcum motorcycle in a First Age ruin and one of the players activated it to square off against the Abyssals that had been pursuing them on Soulsteel motorcycles:

    Were they? Lillun cropped up in Return of the Scarlet Empress.

    Do you mean in third edition?I get what you are saying, but not mentioning a gay lover and then introducing a son implies heterosexuality.

    But, you are right. They never made Ophilis Ses explicitly straight.

    They did, though, explicitly make him a devil-worshipping traitor to Creation, but that is a whole other mess....

  • I really enjoyed the first episode and I will listen to this after Easter.

    It would be really helpful if there was a place that collected all the episodes.

    Well, except maybe Azure Path, the lover of Ophilis Ses who was replaced with a son, arguably implying heterosexualityThis is actually super helpful to me. I had completely forgotten about that promo, but it will fit in well in the introduction of a paper I am writing.Yeah, it was just an observation. I have read the books several times, but I have never before been actively looking for LGBTQ themes, so I assumed that everything that was explicit in 1e was as explicit in 2e. I was surprised that it wasn't and I wanted to share that.

    I am neither trying to fix anything or trying to...

    Exalted is great for LGBTQ representation, right? It is very explicit in books like What Fire Has Wrought, and I think we all have fond memories of the many gay characters throughout first and second edition. Right? I know I did.

    But then I noticed a thing re-reading second edition:

    In first edition, the Mask of Winters and the Walker in Darkness were former lovers; in second edition they are described as former compatriots.

    In first edition, Ragara Szaya and Ledaal Kes were both openly gay, even if they were married; in second edition they are only named...
