    Into the Ruins - Exalted 3e IC

    Aredin smirked, taking a step back as the dust cloud rolled past into the dark embrace of the night air surrounding the camp. "Looks like our reinforcements made it here first Kevin. Did you think I was lying when I said our absence would be noticed? Ah well, once we're done here you can tell us...

    Unless I'm misunderstanding something, I'm just waiting for Kerwin's response to Amara's ultimatum as well as Da Chonk's charge. Otherwise, I don't think there's much I can add to the current scene without sounding repetitive. Also, if it means anything I'm with Sherwood's implications of just...

    I mean, we're not too far off from killing two birds with one stone... After all, hitting Kerwin upside the head with the wagon would certainly earn a snicker, maybe a giggle. He'd never see it coming thanks to the darkness penalties.

    Just an observation, take it as you will. Locks, like doors, walls, and boxes, can be broken. Unlike Kerwin, we don't necessarily care if the lock can be used again. Artifacts also don't tend to be fragile.

    Maybe this example will clear it up. Towering Beast Form lets you shapeshift into a Tyrant Lizard (if you have the shape) despite the fact that it's Legendary Sized. (ie. accessing naturally large shapes) Mountainous Spirit Expression is what lets a mouse form (or any other form you have) meet...

    It's been a long time since I watched the show or seen the manga for FLCL, I agree. I like the energy of the music and for this artist in particular. Definitely agreed. I like the energy of the other songs a bit more but I like the easy-going sound they have with their music. We've had CDs for...

    Baseline health levels count 7 in total for a starting player character. You've bought 8 more. 6 of each was meant to refer to the -1 set and the -2 set (the two you start with, and then the extras you purchased. There's still one -0, one -4, and one incap health level. So as a refresher...

    Hmmm, at first I was gonna say Go by Bump of Chicken but their new track Souvenir is a really fun one too. I'll also throw in Ventura Highway by America while we're here. Ok, I see where the mixup is. So Lunars get a total of four health levels at Stamina 5. Two -1s and two more -2s. You should...

    Yeah, that's good with me. I think buddies makes the most sense.

    This was a reference to a joke between a friend and me. I know no one here would get it, but it's still both appropriate and amusing to me at least. Very likely! Anytime I've tried to play Aredin he's been a bard in some capacity, a good few of my other characters have as well. A bit of a nod...

    "The Guild is a global organization to the point where it has many of the same drawbacks as any nation. Just as the Realm is riddled with slaveholders and slave traders, they also make their money doing plenty of other things. House V'Neef trades in wines. Cynis, even, in foodstuffs. Ragara in...

    Seems like a good chance he'd have visited before to see if there was any notable movements of Fae (Fair Folk) war bands or the like. Nowadays though we can rest somewhat easy with the diplomatic immunity perk preventing certain opponents from opening with violence.

    A bit to unpack here so I'll take it one at a time. I'll be noting where things have multiple names as I go where I can remember and this happens a lot. Fair Folk, aka the Raksha, are alien beings regarded as monsters to most of creation. They originate from the realm of chaos, the Wyld...

    I've been meaning to revisit this, been a bit busy with other things. Seems like the easiest connection would be crossing paths while traveling. As stated elsewhere, Aredin's preferred business is treasure hunting and exploration where the more stable income is from re-investment. The traveling...

    Because Socialize is geared toward manners, concealing intent, and courtly ritual social action I would say Socialize is more for interacting with people the way a politician might, whereas Presence represents a more natural, sincere magnetism which spills into things like leadership and...

    Thanks! I've been having a hard time deciding on how to update various profiles lately. This one seemed like a good fit for RPN what with being similar to the old one and somewhat cozy looking with the turning of the seasons up here in TN. I've been working my way through your background story...

    I have good news for you. What I say here may seem controversial to the Exalted community at large, but I'll say it anyway. If the writers really want to sell the Solars as being stronger, they needed to either do a better job of showing off that power earlier in the Solar charms or make the...

    If you like this sort of logic puzzle as I do, you might appreciate their's two dimensions to tackling this issue on both counts: the Attribute and the Ability. Lunars can use the fact that they are Attribute based rather than Ability based (like almost everyone else) to great advantage with a...

    Your assumption is correct. The default method to gain forms is to hunt and kill a target to drink their heart's blood. All other methods are achieved through charms purchased.

    On the dodge/melee debate, If you can't take both at 3 before bonus points, prioritize Melee. Your excellency/die caps are entirely attribute (+thematic second attribute from a stunt) driven where say, a Solar's are Attribute+Ability and a Dragonblood's is Ability+Specialty. So when you're...
