Yep. ten chars

I rarely go social and figure to give it a try and Integrity seems interesting. I am considering some kind of Integrity/Sorcery build with maybe some melee thrown in.
Picking up Inviolable Essence-Merging at character creation may not necessarily be a "good" or "effective" build, but damned if it isn't fun.

It's not so much the Charmset going in a different direction—it's me being unsatisfied with my mechanical representation of the concept. It's still a trick I'm fond of, so I would like to do it right.

It was a change we made for the Immaculate write-ups in the core. The actual style may end up going another way, but it so far it hasn't to my knowledge.

I can tell you a bit about the cut write-ups, but keep in mind that this is all subject to change come What Fire Has Wrought.

Water Dragon style makes use of razor claws. Its techniques tend to emulate the fluidity and formlessness of water, and manipulate the water within the human body (and its divine analogue, Essence, in gods and other spirits) to a debilitating or deadly effect.

Wood Dragon is a staff style. It's the most esoteric of the Immaculate styles, perceiving and manipulating the Essence of both life and death. It's one of the only styles that can be used for healing, and has a capstone signature move that destroys an enemy's soul with a single strike.

It works wonders on people with teeth problem, and people with teeth you have a problem with.
Glorious Solar『Crazy Diamond』?

In my experience, it doesn't take magic to communicate with/use social influence on animals. Or to have animals socially influence you.

Hey, Vance, while you're here: was Alveua's Plague of Shining Insects Charm supposed to have the Eclipse keyword? It lists a PC-appropriate dice pool.
I think it was originally written with the keyword—hence the dice pools—but that was later removed.

Yes, though they're in the minority.

as such, could have Castes or such?
They could have Castespects, or they could not. It depends on what fits that type of Exigent and their divine patron best—I wouldn't give them Castes unless I felt I had really good concepts for them.

I expect we'll get Architects and maybe a few other "exigent types" written up as mini-splats in the exigents book.
Revana and other Architects are the Chosen of Wun Ja, God of the Shining Metropolis (at least, as I conceived them). She's detailed in Second Edition—I think the Compassbook for Yu-Shan? She went unmentioned because I wanted to avoid people confusing Wu-Jian/Wun Ja.

Architect is the equivalent of Solar.

Many Exigents are unique one-offs, in which case Castes/Aspects/etc. wouldn't make a sense at all.

You know, I wouldn't mind the occasional piece of art depicting people in Creation using some velocipedes, particularly some of the more unfamiliar ones to give that sense of something mildly alien despite being totally realistic.

​Would those be something beyond the technical skills of every part of Creation? Can they be effectively made from plant and animal materials?
It's been the topic of some past debate.

The Pillar Men would make for awesome bad guys in an Exalted story
You're gonna have to be a little more specific than just "Jojo style."


We've got your big buff guys, like Kars,


Highly fashionable gangsters,


Guys with a lighter build, but still really muscular,


And perfection.

Velocipedes!
