Hmm...so is 3E going back to something like 1e's air of "a lot of things are a mystery" or "left up to the DM to surmise if you absolutely MUST know"?

Because that's kinda cool.

3E is not going to be an edition where everything is sorted neatly into a labeled box.

How? I wanna see! Could you demonstrate a simulation of this for us in youtube?
It's Liminal Exaltation.

EDIT: I love how my immediate assumption was 'blasphemous ritual that denies death' rather than 'sex'.

Actually laughed out loud. Thanks, MG.

Pinning precise canonical numbers to things for no real substantial reason generally hasn't done much good for the game throughout its history.

Does that mean we can expect a Deathlord that is not a ghost of a solar Exalt, that their creation didn't involve sticking the souls of dead Primordials inside them, or that they're incomparably weaker then the Incarnea?

It means that they are not confirmed theories. ^_^

This is a questions for the writers about the coming addition. It's been said that there will be no Craft: Genesis in 3rd Edition; will there be a way for Exalts (or other creatures) to create life, or is that off limits now?

There's one way, but you're going to need at least one other person to help you with it. :P

Are we still going to have Whispers in some form or another? Because that is what I want.

I want to hear dead people.

When it comes time to write the Abyssal Charmset in full, I think there is going to be a dramatic who-has-the-most-Charms-up-their-sleeve contest between Holden, John, and I (I'm betting on John). Don't worry. You'll be able to hear dead people.

A pair of soulsteel ram's horns which are grafted to the skull. In addition to their use as smashing devices, they cause the blood of people slain to accrete on the skin of the wearer in soulsteel scabs. Eventually, the wearer becomes a horrifying naked juggernaut covered with scabs!

Arms of the Chosen is a supplement aimed at providing useful resources for players and Storytellers alike, not your weird sex fantasies. You weird...blood...scab...murder...juggernaut...-aphile.

this is revenge for the gay boat thing

Oh, SONUVA--

Er, that is, in Gunstar: Autochthonia, things can happen differently, leading to minor changes, such as Caste. Yeah, that's the ticket...emotion-11.gif

Dex

Having a slum gang led by a child Twilight in a junkyard mech is too awesome of a plot hook to care about the petty confines of canon!

Next time you have timely and juicy info, and aren't sure if you should say it or not, just assume that someone else already announced it, and then go ahead and "confirm" it. You will be well loved. emotion-21.gif

Unfortunately, since I finished up editing Ebon Shadow Style and writing the Techniques for it yesterday, the lethality rate of Onyx Path's NDA Enforcement Ninjas have gone up lethality. It's surprising what having actual combat charms at the beginning of the style can do for that!

You're in luck.

The release order for the first three Exalted types has already been announced.

Core (Solars) -> Dragon Blooded -> Exigents

I think the solution to this problem is presenting the setting in such a way that Storytellers will feel inspired to use celestial audits as an interesting narrative element when it makes the story better, rather than as a "ha ha fuck you" mechanic.

This differs significantly from the new martial arts paradigm, where we will slowly wave our arms about in large circles going 'Whoa! Whoa!' a bunch.

Note that this is performed by the players, not the characters. We've taken a leaf out of Sea Dracula's book when it comes to game design.

As I understand it, the 'tiers' of martial arts will be removed. Does that mean that there will be no such thing as a Sidereal martial art?

Hella no.

I've just finished watched both seasons BBC's series Sherlock. God damn is it amazing. I've read some Doyle before, and it's not been bad, but the series makes the transition to the 21st century not only intact but arguably better off. If nothing else, then simply because the conditions of your own time are what you can most easily relate to.

Now, in Exalted terms, I don't think anyone will argue with me if I say that Sherlock is a Twilight. Maxed out Mental, standard Physical and decent Social (Charisma is way low, but he does have high Manipulation (and Appearance, rawr emotion-11.gif)). Obviously top Lore, Awareness, Investigation and Integrity, but certainly no low parts Presence, Performance or Craft: Water either. It's so obvious it's painful.

Watson, though. What's he? Lunar presents itself as a good alternative, what with the companionship he forms with Sherlock and the way he acts as a catalyst for the Solar brilliance. He's been a soldier, but he's hardly all strength and physical which would qualify him as a Full Moon, and while he's certainly pleasant, he's not a socialite in the real sense of the word (in fact, he never seem to manage to make his girlfriends stick around for long). No Moon does suggest itself, what with his pursuit being one of education and knowledge, and even in the presence of Sherlock he makes some impressive conclusions himself.

Am I in the right area?

If you want Sherlock-Watson (wow that is a dumb thing to type) to be a Lunar in some sort of scaled-up wuxia London, I'd suggest Changing Moon. He's the socially competent, able-to-interact-normally-with-other-humans yang to Sherlock's brilliant, trapped-in-his-own-head yin.
