Yeah, I was gonna say the mini-fic for Socialize was my attempt at writing a character in that voice.

A familiar's a familiar until it becomes unfamiliar.

No. The Exigence is how lesser gods are able to choose their Exalted. The Incarnae wielded that power more directly.

Could two or more Gods make use of a Single Exaltation of Exigency? I'm guessing no. But I'm wondering say say spirits synchronized like say the God of a Field combined with a God of Harvest and the God of Wheat? Or the God of Shadows with the God of Silence?
Yes, but that's definitely in black market exigent territory. Like, really really deep in it.

Most ghosts don't have the Materialize Charm, but they can get little things that let them nudge and interact with Creation in some ways. An Arcanoi for communicating via ouija seems legitimate.

(although honestly I'm lazy so I'd just copypaste the tea reading ritual)

I could be wrong, but I think you meant Single Point.

And you get Z dots to spend on whatever else you want" where Z is actually X-Y. It's the precise same design, but framed in a much better way.
This, from a player-usability standpoint, is such a huge thing. Friggin' Sidereal chargen.

Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever ever ever be mean to a dog.

All of y'all are right, but with this spell I think it would also be fine, balance-wise, if the Storyteller to make an exception and let them use it to boost damage. If a player wants to sink ten motes into obliterating the ever-loving heck out of a battle group, I would be glad to oblige them.

I prefer the latter, because that gives me room to make up fun cosmology stories in my games.

Just because you know someone's lying to you doesn't mean they can't actually convince you. However, the Storyteller should sure as heck stick a penalty on the liar's roll, and that knowledge may prevent them from exploiting certain Intimacies—if Son of Wolves knows that he isn't Anathema, Naya is going to have a very hard time appealing to his Immaculate beliefs.

Oh really? That's interesting, I think they said something about doing a rewrite on DB charms, that must be what's happening.
John, Holden, and I are currently collaborating on the third draft of the Dragon-Blooded Charmset.

We actually did have a scene set in the Baths of Venus. I'm not sure what Ayesha was wearing; everyone was too busy being distracted by stupid sexy Lytek.

Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons. Stephen Chow's (Of Kung-Fu Hustle fame) take on the early portions of the Journey to the West. Amazing, over the top visuals, fantastic supernatural martial arts (One of the characters is pretty much what I picture someone switching between Forms to be like), and a great example of a humble priest in far over his head Exalting as a Zenith Caste.
Stayed up until three watching this; entirely worth it.

As far as the story and quality of writings go, Bleach is nothing to write home about, but the Shinigami are quite like Sidereals - they reside in heaven, protect the world by beating supernatural threats to a pulp, and are giant assholes about it. They even drove another supernatural "splat" to near extinction for very important reasons, an event which recently came back to bite them in the ass something fierce.
The Sidereals in my games always wore shinigami uniforms.
