I think we should just recognize that you're going to reject any reason given for the Eclipse Caste doing what it does, because you don't like it, and move on.

Successes: That character, and his solution to the First Age spiders that kept rebuilding the bad guy's citadel.

Failures: My attempt at an Ability-based Lunar charmset. (Homebrew system didn't use the standard Attributes.)
I would love to know how you tried to approach that.

A bunch of users are telling me that whenever they try to access any page, they're getting the error "That action could not be completed. Please try again, and if this occurs again please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message"

The affected list includes Odd Canuck, FluffySquirrel, Ina, and John Mørke, among others.

No, Exalted doesn't separate them into discrete classes with separate powers like D&D or Warcraft.

Some questionable elements in the past presentation of Thaumaturgy exacerbated this.

The Ajaba section forgot to mention that they can step sideways just as Garou, and that they also make use of Caerns. The Simba section off offhandedly mentions they take control of Caerns, this should probably be noted more as Bastet normally don't use Caerns, outside of the Hengeyokai and the Ahadi.

Error-proofing against those sorts of oversights is why I put together those reference lists in Chapter Three.

After all, it gave us gems like this quote from Shadowdragon8685:
Now see, this? You might as well unzip, take out your Glorious Solar Cock and slap him in the face with it, because it's the last act you will do in this life. The tea is poisoned. The poison is poisoned. The cup is poisoned. The saucer is poisoned. Your chair or cushion is a landmine. The air is poisoned. Celestial Circle Shaping effects are about to trigger. He's about to whip out Draw Forth one Shard and let you battle your clone. And four Sidereal archers are cloaked in the room with bows drawn, arrows nocked, and going to open fire at once.

"If it's any comfort, you did the right thing. The antidote was poison too."

This thread will be dedicated to questions about the book, or clarifications.

Question: Should the Rank 4 Ajaba Gift Culling the weak cost anything? Or was it meant to be free?

It's intended to work as published.

A shaman is someone who acts as a go-between with spirits, i.e. it is a certain flavor of priest. A shaman might also be a magician, but that is not the primary thing that makes him a shaman, nor is it necessary for him to be a shaman.

It took me just a little too long to realise that this was a typo – long enough to wonder what such a Charm could do.

(Add a hyphen in there, and it becomes a weird parry that might absorb the force of an attack.)
