The Demented One, as much as I agree with you, I also have my chessy side and Elemental Dragon Styles even if almost copy cats of Immaculate Styles but Autocthonia flavoured would be wonderful :P

One of the secrets I've learned from spending hella hours thinking about design stuff is that artificial symmetry, or symmetry for symmetry's sake, tends to produce really unsatisfying products. You've gotta start with something that's vital and captivating, I think, so I suspect you'll get more mileage out of a pretty surface-level take of an element than just mirroring the (kinda generic?) elemental dragon styles.

Though I wondered if the developers and writers were going to avoid detailing anything more about the Scorpion Empire. One of their big criticisms of Second Edition was how it clarified and over-clarified pre-existing content instead of making up new content. Choking the mystery out of the game.

If they detail the Scorpion Empire, they'll probably introduce new mysteries... or they could leave the Empire mysterious and introduce and flesh out totally new ideas.

The Scorpion Empire was something I wrote with the intention of never, ever adding further detail about it, so I am going to be caught pretty by surprise if John decides I have to write a chapter on it!

(Which is not to say I don't have my own ideas for it. Just, that I'd be surprised!)

Since there aren't Great Elemental Dragons proper for the Autochthonian elements, I think you'd get something better if you picked an iconic representation of the element and worked from that. Like, instead of Metal Dragon Style, something like Endless Gears Style.

You really should know better than to start a relationship with the Lover Clad in a Raiment of Tears.

But she reads all the same scrolls that I do and has a cute ghost puppy and she's really really hot!

Ah this is OLD SCHOOL.

I guess the Green Sun Princes would take some inspiration from Hataraku Maou-Sama, Liminals would be all Franken-Fran, and the Getimians would be [spoilers spoilers spoilers].

I've got a (as-of-yet-non-dev-approved) Exigent concept that works like this. Twinsies!

This is true. Not because it will never be released, but because of the Children Who Takes Eyes. They are in your house. It is already too late. Run. Run. Run.

Do the Children Who Take Eyes have any relation to the Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In Your Home? Because somebody's been fiddling with my wifi password.

The CWTE are endlessly frustrated by the FOWWSLIYH's lack of eyes to take. Also, they are underage, so please make sure that you have parental monitoring software installed to ensure they don't view any age-inappropriate content (with the eyes they have taken).

DC would sometimes print alternate continuity stories under the title of "Elseworlds," and I think that's a pretty good fit for how Shards relate to the mother canon. What if Superman had landed in Soviet Russia instead of Kansas; what if the Exalted had lost the Primordial War?

Cats are a subset of puppies. That is some pretty basic puppyology theory right there!

...? Was this supposed to go in the Lost Castes thread?

No it is how I would write Lunars (how I would write Lunars is by making them all puppies).

Stripped of my ability to tease new Charms or spoilers and shackled to the twin manacles of work and grad school applications, all I can do on the forums now is make dumb jokes. The dumbest jokes.
