  • I imagine this would cause some surprises occasionally ^_^

    *Tries to burn person that appears to be made of bodyparts from multiple bodies, and who only finally died after their head was cut off, despite seemingly fatal injuries suffered in earlier battles*

    "Hesiesh's Flaring Nostrils! This...undead...stitched together...thing is an Exalt?!"...

  • Yeah, that seems weird. Making 2 attacks at half-initiative seems worse than making a simple Decisive. You are paying 10m, 1wp and your aura...to possibly have to pay twice for the excellencies to guarantee you hit for the same total damage, and each attack must be able to overcome Hardness. If it worked like the Solar charm Iron Whirlwind Attack in which you only pay for extra charms supplementing it once it would potentially be different*, but with it as you explained it does seem weak.

    *Even so, at that cost you would need a lot of enhancing charms for it to be really worth it,...

  • I don't have access to the preview, so I may be off-base here, but maybe you could use it not to get the attention of someone that wouldn't read your letter, but of someone who would take a long time to do so when you want it read as soon as possible? That merchant prince who is super-busy and has a backlog of 300 things to read and respond to? Well, I guess your business proposal just happens to have something intriguing about it that will make the merchant put it ahead of the line....

    replied to Where are All the Druggie Exalted?
    I'm not sure about xianxia novels, but it has "contaminated" a lot of Chinese manhua* too (actually, I don't know were the trend started). I know I've had trouble finding fantasy + martial arts** manga/manhua that are not about reincarnating in another world lately.


    *And those are often based on novels.

    ** And, of course, for fantasy in general you have reincarnation into another world, summoned into another world, reincarnated or somehow stuck inside a virtual reality MMO and so on...

    You forgot to include how lately a staggering number of Exalt prodigies turn out to be reincarnations of people from another world. Only a matter of time until the rise of House or Gens Isekai...

  • I wonder if I'm the only one kinda hoping Trauma Bear makes an appearance on the artwork at some point...
    ...I don't think an animal-loving person of Vance's grade is gonna want the poor bear to suffer anymore, though XD

    replied to Dragonblooded Craft Calculations
    Personally, I would do the calculations assuming 2-point stunts at best to set baseline expectations of what artifacts one can be more or less certain to make successfully. If you are reliably getting 3-point stunts, it is likely that the ST is being too generous to you or you must be much better at stunting than all the other players. I don't think either case is particularly common enough to expect random craft-focused DB players to have +2 dice and +2 successes on every artifact-making roll.

    replied to Timing for Marvels with pantheon motifs
    When also else fails and you can't find a coherent explanation for doing it quickly when it seems it would take longer, it might be viable in some cases to have them take a bit more time and compensate in some way. Giving Momentum seems like a good choice.

    replied to What are your character concepts?
    "Maybe I can go ask Inanna/Ishtar/Astarte for pointers" seems like a ready-made shenanigans-creating plot-hook.

    EDIT:

    Scion: "All right, I have climbed the sacred peak, vanquished the titanspawn, answered the riddles and brought back the relic as you requested. Would you now tell me how one manages to contain both Love and War?"

    Inanna: "Well, for starters, have you tried lots of angry sex?"

    Scion: ಠ﹏ಠ...

    Is there even a reason these must be numbered? It might be becoming more trouble than it is worth. I mean, the sub-clauses can enhance a joke but that can be notated without numbering the entries....

    You should probably edit that to 75a and go from there, as vonpenguin already posted a 74 and yours appears to have nothing to do with it....

    73a. That said, if you manage to convincingly come up with a character that has both the Trickster calling (or the Chaos purview) AND the Order purview, you get to use Nothing but The Truth during one electoral debate....

  • So, today I got "likes" on a couple posts...from 2013. I occasionally end up reading old threads on forums too, especially if bored of current discussions, but how many pages back must that have been?

    Also, the thread in question reminded me that, in the few times a post of mine has been wildly misinterpreted here, all the instances I can recall were by the same poster. Which is weirder when I consider then to be pretty discerning generally from their other posts....

    replied to My Thoughts on Hero
    My best guess would be through an unusual application of either the Deception purview or the Trickster calling. Basically "pretending to be an animal" elevated to godly proportions. Also, it may occasionally be just for color - for instance, becoming a walrus for a wrestling dispute might just be a visual representation of applying his Epic Strength (particularly if he is using a Boon or Marvel to allow a Feat of Scale on said wrestling)....

    39: Also, it is frowned upon for said luchador's finisher move to involve ripping the opponent's heart out of their chest.
    39a: ESPECIALLY on live TV
    39b: Possible exception against vampires attacking the audience.

    Hehe, I guess some Scion out there could be racking up deeds by moderating a forum that does divinity AMAs, preventing (and occasionally fixing!) dangerous pranks from trickster gods, curses and smiting from deities over real or imagined slights, escalating cult X cult trolling and so on......
