    I feel you're giving him too much credit, if anything. He hasn't accomplished much on-screen as of yet, other than nearly getting himself killed trying to save team RNGR. As it stands, I'm thinking he's dangerously close to having a Mentor's Accident (i.e. he'll die or get crippled to show that things are now SERIOUS).

    As for how he looks... well. If I started complaining about that now, I'd never stop. It was clear from the day Ruby wore a corset outside her shirt that this world's fashion was all about what's cool at the expense of what's practical....

    "Folks're countin' on us, Lans," Ash said, her face a stoic mask. "For better or worse, we're committed to this plan and it is the fastest solution to a big problem. I don't pretend to know what happened when you tried this, but we're capable of a lot. Instead of gripin', let's work together to make this work, here and now. Talk to us about shadowlands and what we can expect."

    Lans didn't answer right away. Just then, they were approaching the gates, so maybe he didn't want to talk around the massed guards and townsfolk. Or maybe he needed to gather his thoughts....

    Those five pages contain discussion on the plot of the show, connections between RWBY and Exalted mechanics, connections between RWBY and Exalted canon characters, and ties to other media. These things are interrelated by nature, since talking about RWBY in the context of Exalted obviously involves talking about RWBY. And then there's the usual forum train-of-thought nonsense that gets into any sufficiently long thread.

    Strict compartmentalization between these things feels unnecessary to me. We're not trying to write a reference book here - it's a form of conversation....

    That ship has sailed, mate. It left the dock four years ago, or earlier if you consider the old White Wolf forums. It's been cruising steadily ever since, and has made multiple laps around the world....

    "We'll strike into the shadowland!" he declared. The alleged marshal stepped forward and raised a fist. "We'll go around their flank, find the source of them, and destroy it."

    There was a brief pause while everyone took this in. Then, everyone reacted at once.

    "That's bold." "What source?" "Yes, destroy them!" "Hold up - does this mean we're bait?" "You've very brave - or mad." "Finally! On the attack!" "I would never question one of your stature, marshal, but..."

    "Tonight!"...

  • World conquest is an achievable goal, but it would probably take centuries and during that time a supermajority of the Dragonblooded population would need to be committed to the plan. That's a tall order by itself, but the inevitable intervention of other supernatural beings makes everything much more complicated. The Lunars are only the start - you can expect resistance from all manner of gods and their cults, from empowered rulers like the Perfect of Paragon, and from the Exalted champions of other nations.

    That's not to say it couldn't be done, but I very much doubt it would be...

    What's there to spoil? vampire hunter D asked a question that might as well have been posed at the end of Season 4....

    My money's on Yang. Or, likely as not, Raven will find her.

    Now I have a question - what is team RNGR trying to do this season? I actually don't remember why they've come to Mistral, if it's not to protect it from Cinder and co....

  • I like to imagine that it superficially looks like "normal" creation, but it's all too weird when you look at it closely.

    You've got patches of swamp mixed into the desert, seawater that is inexplicably sweet, places where land and sky literally meet and blend in odd ways. Or maybe the land is alright, but the things you find on it are strange - like dolphins with human eyes, or petrified trees that produce rocks as fruit, or packs of dogs that are actually all the same dog, mirrored several times. Or maybe natural laws don't work quite right, and those shimmery patches...

    (Last call before I leave for two weeks - anyone have a preference for how this adventure goes?)

  • I'm curious about Niruz - is their "warrior's code" something unique to them? Or is it common for Tepet archers to forswear gender?

    I'm also curious about Ejava - she isn't mentioned at all, here or in the corebook. I'm starting to wonder if she'll have any relevance at all in 3rd edition.

    "This is Marshal Tepet Serge," said Ash, waving a hand towards him. "We're his escort. Please take us to your commander."

    Serge gave a start, then puffed himself up. He let out an imperious-sounding "Harrumph!' that ill-suited his disheveled looks.

    If the guardswoman noticed or cared about the incongruity, she didn't show it. Instead she just nodded, said "Come this way," and led them away from the gates and the crowd waiting there.

    Ash had never been to a town under martial law before, but she quickly...

    "Yes, we'll make for the town," she agreed.

    "{Young one, walk with me,}" said Gaze. She walked from the front of the line to King's side, and put a hand on Ash's arm.

    Ash looked down at her with surprise. It was the first time she could remember the old woman looking... pensive. Ash grimaced, then spoke up without looking away from the mystic. "...ya'll take a short rest first. Gaze and I will be right back."

    Ash slid off of King's back and followed Gaze a short distance down the hill the way they'd come. Gaze soon stopped in...
