Nobody posted it up? I DISTINCTLY remember this writeup having a thread... There was one person saying "You know, when I thought that Prince Diamond was boring, I didn't realize something. He's a genuinely good person! I thought the hero who was a Good and Just person was dull! I've become that which I hate in comics!"
I remember that comment from the facebook thread, not here...full disclaimer, I did not search the forum to my fullest capacity.

Here you go! There was no forum thread for it so I made one.

Holden posted John's musings on Perfect Soul and it turns out no-one had posted the similar musings on Prince Diamond, cover character and Eclipse, so here you go!

(*wanders off humming Total Eclipse of the Heart*)

It was I think two paragraphs in a 100s of emails long PbP thing playing with the Solar charmset but I still remember a few lines. So so deliciously weird which, y'know, it's Exalted so that's an achievement.

I'm in the enviable position of getting to see the inner workings of creating some of this stuff, and playing around with character concepts, but Liminals are one of my faves. I love Frankenstein, which obviously helps, but the sheer personal body horror of them is awful and amazing. To go straight at Promethean seems odd to me, like Sherlock fans who forget the original Conan Doyle works. Frankenstein is old old old stuff, and the mythos of stitched together and/or raised dead is even older.

Exigents, thus far in my mock-ups and so on, have been a lot of fun to plot out and create power structures for. Like Holden and John said in the podcast, they offer both expansions for players who don't mesh so well with existing Exalt types or who have a firm concept that requires a bunch of houseruling to work with existing splats, and as increased antagonist spreads for STs to play with. And it's certainly played out like that in the scenarios we've discussed in game terms. Or not even antagonists, just wrenches in the works.

Getimians I have less familiarity with, but the one John put in a game we were playing was really really fascinating, so there's that. The powerset is so fucking weird.

The advantage of them is that they are all super rare so if you don't wanna have 'em in your game, don't!

(I did like the Liminal who accidentally gave himself a plagued eye in the game we played, super gross and also terrifying given the plague's symptoms)

Zenith with Supernal Survival aaaaaaand

I chose a cat. Her name is Prickles. She will eat your face if you annoy the Zenith and is large enough for small children to ride (which she graciously puts up with because said Zenith runs an extensive orphanage).

I would love love love to but sadly, unless I can combine it with a work trip and get a grant to cover some costs of travel, it isn't gonna happen next year.
