    replied to Opinions on DB 3e
    I assume he's referring to the way 2e DBs could simply ("simply") learn Celestial Martial Arts upon fulfilling certain conditions, whereas 3e only allows them to ignore the Terrestrial keyword for a single tick by expending Aura.

    The new way is easier to access, but more situational, and I wouldn't fault anyone for seeing it as a nerf....

    In a home game, sure, I guess this flies. As a setting-as-written thing, it's right out. "De-Exaltation" just isn't a possibility, at least not for any established Exalt type. You can't drain yourself of the Dragons' blood and and favour, any more than you could shed the recognition of the Sun or your destiny as a Sidereal.

    The setting-appropriate equivalent would be an effect where you bestow a mortal with an Essence pool and some specific Charms (or comparable powers), like the Solar Charm Prophet-Uplifting Evocation or the Lunar Charm Selkie Mantle Endowment....

    Kimetsu no Yaiba, adapted by Ufotable. The second episode airs later today.

    Those cuts are all from the opening.

    Yirji seems interesting, but now I'm curious about Uz as well. What's the deal with that place?...

    replied to What are Iconic Fae Powers?
    Forcing others to play along with their chosen roles, even if they should know they're nonsense.

    Redefining the nature of a conflict, such that participants must use different traits; demand everyone use combat Abilities for rolls in a tense negotiation, or replace someone's Strength rating with their Manipulation.

    Turn personal symbolism into literal fact; manifest a larger-than-life personality as Legendary Size, or sever limbs with a sharp tongue.

    Be in multiple places at once.

    Lie so convincingly that inanimate objects believe them.

    replied to Demons of Isidoros
    Back on the old forums, Dean Shomshak (a freelancer for the line at the time) posted a preview of some Isidoros-derived demons that were supposedly slated for Ink Monkeys. I don't recall their names, but they were all the souls and progeny of Kashta.

    First, there was a Second Circle who manifested as an empty armour wrapped in serpents and riding a lion. He spoke through the mouths of his animals, and would serve as a general in battle in return for children's teeth and casks of brandy. His progeny were the Infernal Destriers, great serpents with lion masks of bronze for faces. These...

  • My first EX3 game dropped training times in favour of having specific points where we could spend experience points (and make rolls for sorcerous workings and the like). It was mostly a side effect of the insane pace of the game, but there weren't really any issues.

  • A wicked old sorcerer who, reliving the moment that sent him down his dark path, finally did the right thing. Exalted, he has been returned to boyhood through something like the Blessed Transformation, and now he's out to earn this second chance while trying to be rid of the man he was.

    replied to Ask the Devs v2
    This might have been asked before, but what happens to a Lunar's mutations if they lose any prerequisite traits? For example, if they have Mighty Thews and use Changing Phases Transformation to assume a form with Strength 1 or 2, or if they have Inhuman Visage and lose the Hideous Merit through Ogre-Prince Inversion.

    Does the answer change if the mutation is from their HBT set, or if it's their Tell?

    I'd call that a nonintuitive reading of the passage, but this is also going to be a fruitless argument about nothing, so.

    My stance is that you should look at specific areas and climes and place them where you think they make sense, rather than trying to work out the general climate of these continent-sized regions.

    You want a Florida? It probably goes in the Southwest. Patagonia? The Northwest or the southern coast of the White Sea. Madagascar? I'd say the Dreaming Sea....

    replied to Lunars - Fooling you to enlighten you
    This is definitely a clever and fun way to use Manipulation, but allowing Grows-in-the-Telling Technique to be used with true statements just turns it into a Charm to reset any social influence, which I hardly think was the intent.

    If you really want to use the liar Charms to tell the truth, first convince yourself that you're not. Whispering Silver Serpent can help with that, as can Silver Mask Subversion.

    The only description of what Calibration looks like is in the text of Demon of the Third Circle, and it describes the sky as "starless" (Exalted Third Edition, p. 483).

  • Nest-Raiding Slyness has been mislabeled "Debt of Borrowed Skin" in the Defense, Subterfuge, Mobility, and Swarm pages for Dexterity. Additionally, the link to the Manipulation (Guile) PNG leads to a nonexistent cascade_lunar_v1_appearance_guile.png file.
