Did someone say "White Reaper Style"?emotion-11.gif


I had a really fun idea for how to do White Reaper earlier today, so I kinda hope someone does pick it.

(oh god oh god am I a monster for stating an opinion to this Holden is going to fire me >.>)

this thread really makes me miss the thank button.

Speaking of new styles, the pledge goal went extremely quick, and im really wondering who won, and what styles they are going to choose. please dont leave us in suspense.

on /tg/ they hope that one of the styles chosen was Orichalcum Chef Style

wait, is that a cannon 2nd style? it looks really nice. god i cant wait to hear what its going to be.

Orichalcum Chef is a fan style from the old wiki, if I remember correctly (which makes it something we hecka could not do).

...please tell me the Ladder thing is a stupid joke..

You know, when you think about it, Ladders are somewhat troublesome in Exalted. Why do they exist? The physics of the game posit that everyone can perform, like, a 10 foot standing high jump. Hell, why do STAIRS exist??!

But without stairs, how could we have Fraternal Warning Style?

I'm going to get to write so many styles ^_^

@TDO: what's your opinion of Dreaming Pearl Courtesan Style? Is it on the fun list?

DPC isn't my favorite, but I think I could make it cool.

I'm seriously considering sniping that reward to get a super weird esoteric style put in.

I'm thinking either Black Claw, Cobra or Centipede.

((I considered Dreaming Courtesan but figured the carp dragon charm, which is the only seriously weird part of the style, would be removed))

Centipede ^_^

I think Holden mentioned in the New Year's Eve Awesomestravaganza that social influence is heavily based on manipulating people based on their "intimacies".

I also think he mentioned on Twitter that Intimacies were being replaced by Policies, but that was a couple of months ago, so I don't remember it that well.

It sounds a hell of a lot more interesting than what we have now though.

Intimacies aren't being replaced. They are, however, being expanded.

I'm not sure if anyone else is as enthusiastic for Dragon Kings and Jadeborn as I am.

I'm watching the video now, and I find myself wondering if any of the New Exalted Sig characters won't be gay/bi/omnisexual.


On the other hand, all of them will be otherkin.

Claymore is among the inspirations? FUCK YEAH! One of my absolute favourite manga series right there.

I'm a bit concerned about the Clone Saga though. I hope it's the good parts in the beginning and not the turd it later became that they are inspired by (although it's probably the whole "clone degeneration" thing, which was the only part that stayed good right until the end).

Indeed, inpsirations sound promising.

Incidentily if it's a Frankensteinian body horror manga with a comic slant people want, try searching for "Franken Fran". (Just don't do it at work or after you've just eaten.)

I sent Holden a link to Franken Fran shortly after he told me about Liminals. That was fun. ^_^

That's reassuring, although it does leave the other part of the problem open, i.e. the more you define an Exaltation by showing us things that it *isn't*, the more you hem it in to a narrower and narrower focus. If you, say, created an Exaltation themed around rebellion and fighting the power (ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWA), that means that now Solar characters can no longer be rebels because someone who would otherwise be a rebellious Solar would exalt as that new type instead. I know this isn't a perfect example, but it's the kind of thing I'm worried about.

Degrading the classic Exaltations to serve the new Exaltations would be a pretty dumb move!

What might happen, to elaborate your example, is that you'd have Chosen of Rebellion who serve to enable a particular mode of gameplay that wouldn't really be facilitated by any of the classic Exalted. Certainly, there'd be some overlap—"rebellious" is too big a personality trait to constrain to any one host—but you might see something like, say, a Terrestrialish-level Exalt whose powers allow him to draw upon and embody the will of an oppressed people to act as an avatar of their liberation, to go with the first thing that comes to mind. While there's potential overlap in terms of character concept between that and a Solar revolutionary, it's pretty clear that the two of them would play very differently.

That does sound a bit scary. Abyssals and Infernals being basically recolored Solars was bad enough (and gave rise to the word "Solaroid", which I hate with a passion). I think new splats could be much stronger without being defined by other, already existing splats.

None of the new Exalts are going to be recolors, reskins, or mods of existing Exalted. The ties between them are based on interaction within the setting, alliance and antagonism and uneasy cooperation, not on copying mechanics.

While I doubt it because I want to say it was mentioned before that it was a no go due to timing issues, but is there anything set for social influences during combat?

There are a couple of social options that can be used in combat. Not the full suite of actions, but some things that make sense.

Holden always makes fun of me because I never did ;___;
