Re: Just a heads up

Me too.  Out of the loop. And yet I'm still drawn to the game.  To the power of the stories that can be told with its setting.  And I freely admit, I've also found toxic fandom virtually everywhere I've gone lately.  One of the reasons I rallied for the Freedom Stone making a come back was as an oas...

Re: Return of the Freedom Stone

I can relate to the old faces remarks. ;)

As for this place's resurrection, I have a kid now and a more-than-full-time-job but I will always have a passion for this place.  I'll have to carve out some time to read what's been put up!

Re: Advice on tricky situation

While it's likely too late and things have moved on, pretty sure Dynasts don't 'date' slaves.  Which might be a great opportunity to highlight the cultural difference by having the older sister treat the slave as a slave.  If your players or you are really wanting both ladies to be nice and decent t...

Re: Heartwarming Mother-Daughter Reconciliation

One of the more memorable bits of Mnemon for me involves a (I think) 1e story where she wakes up in a sweat, dreaming that her mother is not only captive in Malfeas but bearing children to the Yozi.  And she promptly turns to her slave lover lying in bed next to her, eviscerates the poor woman and u...

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?

Re: Green Sunrise

Well, this was a fun read.  Good scenery description of the Wyld, nice combat action, very evocative of Exalted in general.  Probably my favorite bits were the Lunar's occasional quips ("Here we go", "Well, how could he say no to that?", etc.), especially when contrasted to the (...

Re: Yozi Theme Contention

For the most part, I'm content with stories and games where the Yozi's get the definition they need to create an interesting, relevant, specific story.  On the whole, I enjoyed 1e's Chthulu-like depiction of the Yozi.  2e's Yozis were less interesting but more satisfying in their cartoony evil.  But...

Re: Return of the Freedom Stone

Lots of good ideas here. Agreed that our large volume of posts from years ago doesn't create the best impression, nor does the lack of a front page. A forum upgrade would be nice but is probably more optional. Archiving still seems like a good way to go, because there's great content that deserves t...

Re: Return of the Freedom Stone

Before we get people posting again, we should probably figure out what to do about the forums. As I see it, these are our dependencies before we launch into things: 1. Need an actual front page for the thefreedomstone.com, even if it's just a redirect to the forums. 2. Need a new forum. I like the X...

Incidentally, I have a full time job and a 5 week old baby boy so my time isn't as free as it was 10 years ago or even 5 years ago. But I'm also not writing much, which leaves more time for reading and commenting instead. I'd be happy to moderate. Whether it's a specific forum or be just a general m...

Dinosaur : Hopefully my rally isn't an empty call into the void. ;) I think most of us hold out hopes that 3e's Lunars will finally be something that truly captures the imagination. 1e and 2e had their strengths, even with Lunars, but it was always despite other material. Alas. I'm frightened and d...

Return of the Freedom Stone

With the rise of a new edition, is there any interest (or at least willingness) to reopen this place's doors for business? Because I think the Exalted community needs this place. It needs a place that inspires, that promotes creativity. Where artists and writers and designers (and yes the smut-machi...
