It's not just the flowery names of the Exalted themselves. Supposedly, ordinary people all over Creation are giving their kids names like "Bright Feather" and "Silvered Tusk", and it's kind of breaking my suspension of disbelief after a while, because, well... don't these names sound kind of pretentious?
River Phoenix.

The Man with the Iron Fists.

Players, amirite?

So, explanation. Some of my players were coming over to talk Exalted and watch a movie that might serve as good inspiration for our upcoming 3e game, and since a couple of players want their characters to be PIRATES!, one player demanded that we watch something with PIRATES! in it.

Isn't the Anime called One Piece the one you need for something like this?
... oh yeah, and he hates One Piece so that was off the table.

Thanks very much to everyone for your assistance! We now return to your regularly scheduled Exalted media discussion.

An urgent request: What are some good movies or TV shows that provide Exalted inspiration and pirates? (Answers needed in the next hour.)

Thanks, folks!

As I understand it, earth-aspected jade was originally meant to be yellow, but the design team changed it to white before the 1e corebook was released. A couple of references to yellow jade slipped past the editors, however, and made it into print. It didn't appear again in 1e, but the idea of yellow jade lay fallow in the fanbase and was eventually revived as a sort of easter egg by some 2e writers.

Vance has been developing the Sorcery system for some time now; it's not something that's yet to be started.

Dawn Caste PCs will be more appealing in 3e.

Your Liminal can wear skull-covered armor if you want!

It's worth noting that in 1e contained a "Nature" mechanic like that of the oWoD games to describe and define the core of your character's personality, and the list of possible Natures for your PC included such things as "Hedonist" and "Thrillseeker."

I want Creation's cholera to have the same vectors, symptoms, prognoses, etc. as its Earthly equivalent. But there's a distinction between "Creation's cholera behaves like Earth's cholera" and "Creation's cholera is identical to Earth's cholera."

I think that neither Stephen LS nor Eric Minton get to make the call here. Arbitrating this sort of dispute is pretty much John Mørke's whole job.
Of course!

I own no 1E books (though I did get to look through Scavenger Sons a bit), so I do not know how things were presented there. But from the 2E core, I felt that the book was bending over backwards to present both good and bad sides of The Realm. Actual Realm characters seem like a pretty even split between decadent/corrupt and opposed to same, and I got the feeling that for every Cynis Devonah Avaku whose morality is in opposition to the Dynasts around them, there was a Cathak Drogath whose thoughtless corruption was a source of shame and derision from other Dragon-Blooded.

Both of our takes on the Realm are valid.
“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”

He can refute it all he likes, but 2e and 1e are both in agreement on this singular point - the Wyld Hunt is getting less funding every year, not more. It is not considered a priority by most Dragonblooded. More important? Shoring up personal armies and fortresses for the coming storm.
I don't even know what people are attributing to me anymore!

This is a concern. I can think of at least one explanation I have cut from a project or projects I've worked on because I thought the audience was likely to come up with a more interesting interpretation than what the author had written.
Would that be Elytrum?

This is correct!

This is incorrect! Randan is a real word, much like chiaroscuro.
