Important question regarding ghosts and sanctums.

Ghosts and mortals pray. Or at least they can.  I'm fairly sure we're all aware of what a setting-shaper worship is in Creation, and we know that the calendar of Setesh is spun by ghostly prayer. So here's the question. Literally every deity in Creation can shape a sanctum. A single deity working fo...

Re: Survivability fix

Armor grade? How would you make them work? Oh! Also, just to clarify; this isn't a persistent effect. If you hit someone at Essence 2 hard enough to fill their -0 and both -1s then you'd only fill their -0, but the second hit would do full damage [unless it would overflow into the -2s, in which case...

Advice on tricky situation

Hi guys So, the only Exalted game I run is this old play by post choose your own adventure that I started when I first got into the game. It's just me and a pair of friends who don't have any knowledge of the game outside of what's happened in the thread [though they know enough to say "thank y...

Survivability fix

I know one of the biggest problems with 2E combat is how easy it is to die in one hit. And in the past I've worked on homebrew to try and fix that. Most of it just involved bloating ox body and allowing people to roll Stamina + Resistance [Should have been survival come to think of it] at a difficul...

Re: BrilliantRain Reads Ex3

Like I said dude, I do understand how it works, I'm just not in that mindset yet. It took me almost two years to get comfy with 2E rules. 3E is gonna need to show me mo lovin before the homebrew juices get flowing.

Re: Freedom Stone not loading?

Is it just me or is everyone having a lot of issues loading a page or a post (or making a post)?  I can navigate the forums without a hitch but clicking into a topic fails more often than it succeeds.   Any ideas what's going on? Yeah, I had this, which by the way is why I haven't updated Green Sun...

Re: Yozi Theme Contention

I've heard that there's an intent to focus more on demons than the Yozis that they compose.  It's off to a good start, too, since Octavian is "only" a second circle, but can potentially dismember Ahlat, who is a directional war god. This is what I'm hoping for too.  More focus on Liger an...

Green Sunrise

The sun set, its last rays kissed the treetops goodbye as Nysela gunned the Daystar onward into chaos. The stars shone, an odd, almost violet tinge to their light tonight. At the edge of the world, a single crystal shod foot came to rest on a flower, an iris. The flower opened. The flower screamed....

Re: Yozi Theme Contention

I just wrote three paragraphs of detailed opinions on this topic.
I wrote homebrew anima effects for Malfean Infernals.
I gave my whole opinion on the Ebon Dragon Vs Szonery.
