Re: Opinions Wanted: nWoD

Right. World-shattering power is reserved for the police. ^VVVVVV^ Also don't use the NPCs in the corebook, they were designed with a completely batshit insane powerscale in mind. Probably shoulda finished reading the post. EDIT: Unless you're talking about the cop rules in Tales from the 13th Prec...

Re: Opinions Wanted: nWoD

I try to avoid looking like I'm dogpiling with friends these days, but this was pointed out to me in IM, and the various incarnations of WoD are the games I have the most experience with, so I thought I'd add my two cents. Here's hoping this doesn't turn into a flame war like all the previous attemp...

Re: Few questuions bout game

Not trying to dogpile, but I just wanted to add to this because a) I've actually debated trying to write a martial arts style based on this for years now, and b) FotNS is one of my favorite series ever. <FotNS derail> Technically Raoh's using the same version of the style that Kasumi Kenshiro, the m...

Re: Mythender: Gods Need Killing

I admit, my first thought about killing gods goes to Shadow Hearts , and the notion of modern Mythenders amuses me. Sadly, someone (I think a friend of Mike's) already wrote up a Yuri Hyuga homage on the main website, so instead I have to turn to my tokusatsu series for inspiration. Name: Tsukasa Sa...

Re: Tourneyfag Summer Again? New Arcade Release Land.

So damn curious about Tekken Tag Tournament 2, though mainly from nostalgia, since the original Tekken Tag Tournament was my first real fighting game. Blazblue sequel is of course in my interests, AH3 could be interesting though I remember how much I swore at how slow the original Arcana Heart was....

Mortal Kombat Mini-Review

Okay, fair enough. What can I say about Mortal Kombat 9 ? It's a fun game. After the abysmal games that came before it, I was worried that this was going to be a terrible waste of time and effort, and thus was pleasantly surprised. The game is very well done, and for the feel it was going for, that ...

Tourneyfag Summer Again? New Arcade Release Land.

Been awhile since I've written anything about this, so I guess it's time to get back to that and kick off a new thread. Since most everyone who reads this is a fan of Capcom, their current big thing is the fact that Street Fighter x Tekken is being rapidly geared up for. So far, they've announced Ry...

Re: Side-side-topic: fix the suck

One idea I thought was a good one that was never fleshed out (which I liked) was the Mortal Exalted mentioned very briefly in 1e Autochthonians. I took it and ran with it when I was running a game for my group. The idea was basically that these mortals resonated with certain concepts and themes, te...

Re: Sidereals are terrible...why?

Yeah, breaking The Mask screwed up their ability to be remembered, which supposedly got them out of it. Then again, get a few exalts together and Sids become really easy to remember. You know, between the fact that The Mask really isn't that effective and the fact that the usurpation was difficult n...

Re: Side-Topic: sids are whatever, mortals rock

Mortals are pretty cool guys and almost never get the credit they deserve for running day-to-day life in the world. I would be thrilled with a Heroic Mortal (and maybe DB) game sometime.

Re: Sidereals are terrible...why?

While the Usurpation has been gone over and over in this thread and many others, one thing about Sidereals I don't like is that they didn't get much flak for it. They should be, imo, on everyone's shit list. Heaven's, for violating the Creation Ruling Mandate. DB's for being untrustworthy traitors(...

Okay, I can follow that line of logic, but then we're pretty much completely out of the realm of setting and into arguing philosophy, which, while I admit is a completely fascinating and far better twist for this thread to take than where I thought it was going, is way more effort than I want to put...

Yes, all Exalted are evil and all are capable of good, we've addressed this point. So you're saying that, by creating the scenario in which they were cast as the only thing standing between Creation and Oblivion/Chaos/Total Weirdness, they weren't setting themselves up to be martyrs? Because there ...

Re: Sidereals are terrible...why?

Sidereals never do the right thing, ever. They do what is necessary. This is where you and I (and I'm guessing Kailan and Kitsunemimi Maiden) disagree. The necessary thing is the right thing, most times. It might not be the optimal solution, but unfortunately Exalted isn't always a game of finding ...
