    replied to Show me a Heroic Abyssal
    I find it extremely doubtful that when more details are given on what it is like to be a ghost that the answer is going to be 'exactly like being a mortal but even better because now you don't need to eat and don't age'. The fact that what we consider a ghost is only half of a two part soul in of itself kinda mandates that you aren't going to be the same as the living person whose self is a mixture of their higher and lower souls....

    Probably depends on what part of the story Guts you are talking about, he was a pretty big prick for awhile there....

    #1: As described it was heroic, he made sure the ghosts gave their descendants aid so anyone that was shorting them out of greed was actively ripping off their own family despite services rendered. He didn't punish the poor who couldn't afford it, just the greedy who ripped off their own flesh and blood.

    #2: Nah, that guy is a creeper who needs to go kill himself first if suicide is so damn great.

    #3 Depends on the grievance, taking a job from the ghost of a guild factor who wants you to kill those uppity slaves that revolted and put his head on a pike is a bit different...

    I get the impression that some of them might be a bit unhinged and hard to work with thanks to the trauma of their backstory....

    I am curious what percentage of Getimians settle on a conclusion along the lines of 'I was blissfully unaware of my nonexistence until you brought me into miserable existence in a strange alien world that doesn't match the memories in my head for use as fodder in your war' and try to punch Rakan Thulio in the face instead of blaming heaven for scrapping them in the first place....

    So, apparently there is some amazing super city god (god of the very concept of cities, maybe?) who has enough strength they can afford to somewhat regularly give bits of it out to gods of lesser cities who want to raise up an exigent but are worried about being able to pay the cost. Thats an interesting dynamic I hadn't thought of, more powerful gods eating part of the cost without actually taking over control of the exaltation from a weaker god. Maybe I've been too harshly cynical in my estimations of the average asshole level of major gods in this setting if they can refrain themselves like...

    So, why are these 3 optional again? Did they have some sort of large enough setting impact the writers didn't want to have to write around their presence?...

    I mean, is it inaccurate to say that when you boil it down the Realm is mainly centered around her Redness and her squabbling brats?...

    Pretty sure that the Empire of the Bear from Fangs at the Gate has mention of lunar offspring who inherit minor powers from their lunar ancestor (like being able to shape shift into a single kind of animal)

    Edit: Yeah, I reread it and Iscomay/bear land talks about the 'moon touched' lineage left behind by some lunars and how they can develop minor supernatural powers. But they seem to mostly be one trick ponies like my example of someone who can turn into exactly one type of animal and it talked up how rare it was for them to get any kind of power. They do not get lunar charm access...

  • See, here is where you are making your mistake. Rather then looking for something reiterating that they lived under the same condition humans did you should be looking for the (much shorter on word count) part saying that their bad treatment of humans was unique and that other races had it different from them. Do you see anything like that?

    Though that is just in the Dragon King's case, in the Jadeborn's case we know that the other Primordials especially loved to screw with Autobot's things and that the Jadeborn are considered to be among his things then add 2+2 to get 4 (Jadeborn...

  • The way you say this makes it sound like a revelation to you that people living under a government where the head of state has absolute power and can do whatever they want are slaves. Why do you think there are so few countries left in the world that tolerate such nonsense as a leader with totally unchecked power? A slave is a slave even if they don't live somewhere they are likely to get their master's direct attention since it isn't like they need to be within arms reach to mandate abuses be rained upon you as amused them.

    Yeah, they cared so little about it that they actively aided...

    replied to New Fokuf lore?
    I would argue they are still his legacy, it really isn't a big shift for their powers to be yozi inspired skill based charms as opposed to literally their own personal yozi charms grafted onto the GSP for their usage. And he got to add a splat that carries over to the next edition, even if it changes heavily thats still his legacy....

  • Everyone was a slave to the Primordials from the lowliest insect or beast to the sentient mortal races to the highest of the gods, they not a single one had any sort of rights protecting them from being abused by their Primordial creator kings that we have heard of in any edition. Or if such laws saying that certain servants had actual inalienable rights as opposed to the fleeting fickle protection of currently being favored that could be stripped from them at a whim I don't remember reading it anywhere.


    The primordial ones strike me as not being very likely to accept traitors...

  • Perhaps they were under the impression they would have more say in the rule of the world then they ended up getting? Or the Primordials were just such awful rulers that they thought 'the humans literally could not be worse so **** it'.

    I am sure that whatever faction first discovers them will be happy to give them a helpful and completely unbiased description of where the world went wrong....
