Someone should check the Dragon-Blooded Drive Charms in Shards, and make sure they let you do the thing Mako did with his motorcycle. If not I'll see if I can get John and Holden to give me permission to just do a random Charm for an non-canonical Ability in an outdated edition because that was rad.

Also—while the writing problems the show had in Season 1 still seem to be there in the premier, I am pleased by the introduction of a character who is essentially April Ludgate with elemental kung fu.

Actually, the more I think about it, the more it seems that it's just for shock value.

Nothing is more shocking than the concept of having babies.

Powered by stolen or denied potential.

Warring against the seemingly unassailable powers that be.

Led by a figure who leaves behind only strange half-memories when he is gone.

I understand.

I suppose they have no choice but to revolutionize the world.

The way before them has been prepared.

Hee. Not quite, but I like it.

Duck Fate can be used to protect against Shaping. As of the 2.5 errata, Creation-Preserving Will also functions as a Shaping defense.

The third one demonstrates that the Sidereals don't automatically treat Getimians as enemies if they're willing to dump Rakan Thulio.

They're still suspicious of the ones who are in an open relationship with him, though. :P

All of these points are very valid. How is the new 3rd edition going to address these problems? What changes to the core mechanic have been made to make combat more fun?

The short, short version: Are you familiar at all with the mechanics of Dissidia: Final Fantasy? emotion-2.gif

Has Holden or John actually said something along those lines? Because way back in January '12, when they were first explaining the fundamentals of the new combat system to me, it was with a link to a video of a Dissidia fight.

Reminiscent Oasis's fan-splat the Nocturnal Exalted had a resurrection mechanic that was based on time lord regeneration.

What makes me the most excited about this new dodge tree are the implications that dodge isn't a purely defensive ability anymore. Names such as "Force-stealing feint", "Living Bonds Unburdened" and "Hundred Shadow Ways" imply that the ability will now have more active effects and effects that might affect your opponent.

I'll put it this way: when I first read over the Dodge Charms, I think I said more "holy shits!" than when I first read over the entire Solar Charms chapter in the 2e core.

Sounds good to me.

"Okay Exalted fans. Step into this tube. Only 20 minutes will pass for you, but when you emerge, 6 years will have come and gone, and 3rd Edition Exalted will have over two dozen source-books available and in print."


Nah. I'd just have to master Revolving Zodiac of Aeons Style, and then use Cosmic Axis Roundhouse Kick to relativistically accelerate the universe around me. That's doing things the Exalted way!

Technically that is not true.
In theory someone older than him could travel at near light speed sometime in the future, thus experiencing less time due to relativity.
Should they be close enough in age that might cause their respective Older/Younger relationship to shift.

Colors are an easy jump off point for any supernatural being as colors tend to have a ton of associations.

Also, I dislike the word Exigent. It's an adjective with no noun behind it, doesn't sound fantastical or mythical enough, and 'demanding' is hardly as evocative as 'sun' or 'moon.'

"Exigent" isn't really a word you'll be hearing much in playing. You'll be talking more about heroes like Strawmaiden Janest, or [making names up mode go] the Taker of the Drowned, or the Two-Faced Neshama, or the Typhonic Exalted. Exigent is a wide, catch-all category—the examples that'll show up in your game will be much more specific, mythical, and resonant.

There are no bad Sidereal Martial Arts Charms. There are only Sidereal Martial Arts Charms that haven't been rewritten properly. ^_^
