Really?
I'd say it's amazing how few people understand how much churn there's been in the Exalted writing team, but frankly that's kind of the default. Rather, it's amazing that anyone understands how much churn there's been.


Low blow / bad form / histrionics / etc.

Carry on with your regularly-scheduled thread. emotion-1.gif

I obviously disagree with the, uh, closing argument, but Zack and Steve are not completely out of left field with their article. Something Awful is a good site. We do not need to be Too Cool For Them and they are not a conspiracy of The Mans.

They may raise some valid points, but calling us 'idiots' and 'dumbfucks' is not even an argument, isn't it?


That's right. It's not an argument.

Also something something cross-forum drama.

I'm interested in this preview. It didn't quite grab me as much as I expected.

I see some theme-port from Promethean that I'm not sure is exactly appropriate - while I do think that an inward-facing game of sorts is interesting, and the angst of a created being is a fun thing to examine, we have to remember that created beings... in GENERAL... are less unusual than in our world, and that the philosophical questions Frankenstein raises within that setting are not the same as the questions such beings raise in Creation.

The stakes of this dillema are far lower in Creation ; we aren't involving notions like God, damnation, the primacy of human awareness/intellect, etc. Those deep questions are part of what makes Frankenstein so troubling.

That said, this is just a very short preview, so perhaps elaboration on these themes can make them more compelling. It's going to be hard to a Liminal to make a big deal out of his unique condition when he's encountering all sorts of creatures more or less similar to him all the time.

I was more interesting in sort of a 'Full Metal Alchemist' take on the material, which I was also able to get from it.


Exploration of the propriety of created life is not the focus of this splat. It can be, but that's not where we bet all our chips.

A grand goremaul and a grand daiklave are both heavy weapons, but knocking your foe across the battlefield is pretty distinct from showering them in a rain of cutting steel.

Wish I could make it, but money is tight these days.

Dang. Eric, do you know how I can contact Plague. Baking rules or no, I need his help with the podcast. Even if it's a quick question.
He's a hard man to get a hold of, but if I hear from him I'll let him know.

So having spent today thinking about the preview while at work, I have decided I still really like it. Awesome job all around Dev's. Just ignore the assholes.
Let's please not call people who disagree with preview material "assholes."

While I can't speak for the devs, I'm pretty sure that the 'phantoms' mentioned in Black Rose Blooming aren't actually ghosts. This is because A) we generally don't use the word 'phantom' to mean 'ghost' unless we've mentioned a specific ghost like ten times in the same paragraph and have run out of synonyms, and B) we generally don't use the word 'coalesce' to describe the appearance of an actual creature, even a relatively insubstantial creature like a ghost.

I am confident that John and/or Holden will address the matter when they return from Denny's their undisclosed location.

I actually contemplated putting in a "Charm tree 'art'" credit for myself, but it turns out I'm too lazy to resize the text box for the credits.

It's all my fault. The Infernal and Abyssal Kickstarter previews were typed up months ago, and I keep putting off the layout for them. If not for these crucial pieces of the puzzle, EX3 would've been out December 2012.
