  • Isator, I'd like to write a long post to respond, but I can't really be arsed. You're always playing the agent provocateur and getting away with it only because you make the other party angry enough to catch the falling mod hammer before you do.

    Not this time, my friend.

  • You misunderstand me. I want all the characters I play to be able to make full use of the rules to do what they do.

    Suggesting that someone plays one of my builds that I've built to KILL THINGS is not an act of revenge against the Storyteller, its suggesting that instead of playing a build where you can't use 50% of the tools to do things to instead play a build that is pumping on all cylinders all the time. Like I said, I don't enjoy being hamstrung (as I would imagine most people would not).

    If the hamstringing occurs in the name of boundaries and personal comfort levels,...

  • Well, I'm not personally, as I don't have any games on at the moment where I'm running this character.

    But if I was to give honest advice, if the ST is a big stickler for the Red Rule for NPCs, I'd advise a gamer bud to try something more directly eviscerating, as stated upthread. Like Death Kitty or whatnot. I don't personally enjoy not being able to access a bunch of effects that make a character concept really hum.

  • Yes agreed, but 2 mechanistic things:

    1. Thousand Courtesan Ways is one of the most efficient social effect generators in the game.

    2. Rose Lipped Seduction Style explicitly (as stated) can make there be sexual attraction where there wasn't any (and indeed where it is an Unacceptable Influence, basically the strongest anti-social effect in the game, prior to Red-Ruling).

    So if one of the most efficient ways to use it is to use your torn innocence to entice and seduce others, I don't see that there is anything particularly incongruous about that. However,...

  • See, thats another bit of slander, lol. I think about Martial Arts Styles a great deal. Just look up Maiden of the Black Claw, thats one of the concepts I'm kind of pleased with.

    Black Claw lets you instill like crazy, intimacies that you are weak, delicate, a beautiful flower being crushed under an unyielding heel. And you can use those newly formed Intimacies to re-inforce an intimacy of Attraction/Lust using Thousand Courtesan Ways.

    With poised lion you also get a free social action once per round which can be doubled with Thousand Courtesan Ways.

  • Sure, and really it's not your party I'm concerned about really, but if your ST is going to tell you that all the DB warriors you go up against are immune to your charms because of Red Rule, I'd roll up another character concept. Like one of the ones that go straight to eviscerating.

    Edit: If it isn't clear, I am talking about NPCs here, only thats not really true as the ST is also considered a player and all NPCs can thus invoke the Red Rule....

  • Except against Rose Lipped Seduction Style I suppose (which explicitly overcomes Unacceptable Influences) but that can still be nixed by the Red Rule.

    Makes me feel kind of bad for optimized Black Claw Stylists that 40% of the Juju you-do can be arbitrarily no selled by every other player at the table including the ST. (As in you can make 4 reflexive social influences a turn, but half of them get stopped by the Red Rule) But that’s part of the Storytelling social compact, I would imagine....

  • You guys already gave me the best version of Lunars in the entire history of the Exalted line, so my deepest gratitude for that.

    If you Devs want to Patreon or something to make more words flow, happy to make it happen.

    If the current pace of releases is what works best for you too, also 100% okay.

    You’ve done more than enough for the Exalted line already....

    Time was, used to be if you knew up to the Form Charm you could call yourself a Master (as of 2nd Ed).

    I mean, fair enough, that seems to be a decent enough of granularity even for 3rd ed....

    I did suggest a Charm for Lunars to mirror an attack right back at the originator (due to their themes of the moon, mirrors and mimicry) a la Naruto (specifically Kakashi and his weird Sharingan eye).

    I wonder if anyone actually would request something like that for the expansion book.

    Hey hey, I’m always up for Lunar workshopping, can you post in another thread their basic builds and preferred tactics?
