They've said sids are no longer universally reviled in Heaven. The Sids are not overworked bookkeepers, they're overworked masters of all the power of Heaven. Yeah, you go to Creation and the Lunars are going to do their best to gank you. But it sucks there anyway, so why bother going?

A Sid's most likely last cause of death is a Lunar, yes, but that they're also killing Lunars left and right with indirect means. The two are at war with each other, and use their own best methods fighting each other.

>> No.25567126

Entertaining, but impractical. One of the big themes of Lunars is the whole "I've got my own shit to do" attitude they have towards "leaders" in their society.

Has there been any talk RE: Solar/Lunar relationships?

>> No.25567867

So a when most people in creation think of Sorcerers they automatically assume that they have mastered Demon of the First Circle. It's a stigma that carries over all such magic users. Even if they don't know that particular spell the people of the Realm will distance themselves.

So then what is a shaman by creation standards?

>> No.25567905

In what context? The tribal wise man or the nature mage?

>> No.25567914

A Shaman is someone with the Beckon God/Beckon Greater God, Spirit Sight & Spirit Ward thaumaturgy rituals, who has taken the Priest Merit. Throw in weather control, animal husbandry, astrology or Geomancy thaumaturgy as taste dictates.

Demon Summoning is the ultimate swiss army knife in exalted. Elementals are more powerful but are more tempremental and abusing them will lead to Celestial censure, whereas thanks to the Yozi surrender oaths, nobody cares if you treat Demons like shit, especially not the Yozi.

Two Lover's Bondage Harness (Coil Rank 4, Three Dot Artifact)

A collection of animal parts, dead wood, iron, and soulsteel, the Two Lover's Bondage Harness resembles vaguely a large, hollow rib cage with an iron and soulsteel throne on one end, held up by thick, reinforced legs. The ribs have a series of straps, harnesses, gags, piercings, tools, and toys of many and varied types hanging from them, all the better to secure and tease one held within. Whoever sits on the iron throne may commit four motes to the necrotechnical artifact to command both the bindings and the feet... and while attuned, may also control the four Sadist's Whips attached to the dead muscles and tendons that stick between the ribs. A number of toys and tools also rest on and in the throne, to allow the dominator a bit of pleasure while watching their submissive pet squirm.

>> No.25570098


Sadist's Whip: One Dot Artifact

A length of black leather, iron barbs, and jagged pieces of raw labyrinth ore, the Sadist's Whip is a fairly uncommon artifact despite the ease of building one and the lack of required essence commitment, for the simple fact that it is impossible to kill someone with it, simply hurt them. Some Deathlords and Deathknights have made use of it, however, as a method of interrogation... among other things.

Speed 5, Accuracy +1, Damage +3B(*), Defense +0, Rate 1, Mins STr 1/Dex 3, Tags D, R. Instead of rolling damage, if this weapon would deal damage, the target instead suffers a -2 internal penalty for one action. Abilities that negate wound penalties can negate this penalty. This penalty stacks with similar penalties from other Sadist's Whips, but not with itself.

>> No.25571916

Demons aren't inherently evil, no.

They are violent by human standards because their world is constantly trying to kill them (Malfeas collapsing his layers, Adorjan's wind flaying niggas, etc.).

They are alien because their brain's work differently. eg. most human "unacceptable orders" are bout suicide. Whereas Demons can be ordered to kill themselves, but a Blood Ape cannot be ordered to not murder something that attacks it first, one of those harpdemons cannot be ordered to stop playing, and a Stomach Bottle Bug cannot be ordered to not heal someone. This makes people fear them because their mindset is so incredulous compared to ours.

They are generally terrifying because their sun actively hates humans, so they must look frightening to humans or they will die instantly.

Back before there was Creation there were the Not Fun At All Things. They were boring, so we won't really get into them. Suffice it to say that they were really big and really powerful and have phallic tentacles and let's leave it at that.

Oh, and nipple-piercings. Lots and lots of nipple-piercings. And bald chicks.

The Not Fun At All Things all got together and made Creation. But Creation was so awesome and fun that they had to spend all their time just making it work and they all agreed that was not fun at all (but without pretenious capitalization). So they all worked for a few infinites (which were more common back then) and made the Ultimate System.

The Ultimate System is the perfect program. It runs all Creation. Every grain of sand, passing cloud, majestic mountain range and blooming flower has its shape and properties determined and controlled by the Ultimate System. Every loving embrace, hate-filled speech and brilliant sword duel is overseen by the Ultimate System. The results are carefully logged, the effects applied and everything happens. For the most part, everyone in Creation doesn't notice this. Things fall down and time moves forward and nobody really questions it. The occasional time somebody drowns and still walks around, or that your son is born before you meet his mother... these things are strange but nobody really gives them much mind. In world where superhuman uber-cute girls wearing miniskirts rain firey death from airships pulled by white-horned pegasi onto immaculately unflappable long haired pretty-boys who parry falling mountains with disaffected stares... you just stop asking questions, okay?

The Trolls are survivors/ghosts from the First Age who were menaced by Bec Noir and ran off to hide in the Wyld. They eventually learned about the Sidereals' involvement with killing the Solars, and are seeking out the Kids in revenge.

Bec Noir is a spirit of some sort who was warped into a horribly powerful monster by the Sidereals to use as a weapon in the Usurpation. The ones responsible for this were the Kids' past lives, which is why the Trolls hold such an intense hatred for them, though they eventually learn to accept that they aren't the same people and work together for a greater cause.

Suffice it to say that the Ultimate System is Really Important. So important it deserves capital letters. Just ask the people who run it. Really.

The Ultimate System worked great, to a point. It wasn't as perfect as the Not Fun At All Things (just ask them) and occasionally bugs and snarls appeared in the system. The Not Fun At Alls disliked having to go in and personally repair the system, mainly because it was so boring. The process of occasionally fixing the Ultimate System was so annoying that it became known as the Great Ordeal and was generally relegated to whatever Not Fun AT All was least popular that week (this was usually Autochchton, The Great Otaku). So they (or mainly he) created a new user interface. A user interface that could react to problems pro-actively. A user interface that could monitor itself and adjust as needed. A user interface with the ability to adapt to new situations. But mainly a user interface that was cute and happy to see you and offered to rub your feet.

Hey, you trying having infinite weight and see how good your feet feel after a hard day of being infinite.

So using some raw material culled from the weird ape things with sticks that the Not Fun At All Things kept stepping on every time they turned around they created the Great Ordeal Deferring Delightful Effective System Stewardess or G.O.D.D.E.S.S. This worked out so well they made a whole bunch of them and set them in charge of maintaining the Ultimate System.

>> No.25572420


Of course, after a few more infinities of being forced to work for Not Fun AT All Things the sentient Goddess systems adapted to the point that they realised that the thing making Creation the most not fun was the Not Fun At All Things. In fact, the act of cleaning up the messes their masters had created became the prime ordeal of the Goddesses. Clapping themselves on the back and saying how brilliant and smart (and cute!) they all were the Goddesses got together and decided to overthrow the Not Fun At All Things. Unfortunetaly the inability to overthrow their makers had been hard-coded into both them and the Ultimate System so they needed pats^B^B^B^B... allies to do the hard work of actually defeating the Not Fun At All Things. With the help of Autochchton the great otaku they learned the secret of creating more like themselves and thus created the Exalted.

Thus began the Prime Ordeal War. Those Not Fun At All Things that were slain sank into the Underworld and became the Nevercute, while the really annoyed ones who didn't die were banished, becoming the Sore Losers (or "You'll See"). The fact that the Goddesses could not actually directly participate in the war, but could offer helpful advice and encouragement form the sidelines led to their current title "the Helping Goddess". Others had less polite terms for them, but they chose to ignore them.

After the Prime Ordeal War the Helping Goddesses pretty much had it all. They got to move into Heaven, get all the cool toys and, of course, all their cute friends and happy bishounens to help them with their duties. For a long time (but not an infinity, because they were out of those) everything was happy and flowers and rainbows.

>> No.25572430

Then the Bishounens started to brood and the Catgirls started getting bitchy and the Magical Girls were all "we're oppressed and also want cookies!" and everyone expected the Helping Goddesses to fix everything. After all, it was their job to look after the Ultimate System. So what if some Bishounen had summarily leveled a mountain. Surely the Helping Goddesses could just fix the damage. Yes the Catgirls had stolen all the Celesital Wine and gotten everyone in the Realm drunk, but the Helping Goddesses could just make the crops grow despite nobody having actually, ya know, planted them. Fixing problems was what the Helping Goddesses were FOR, wasn't it?

So the Goddesses got together and talked about this and came to the conclusion that the problem was the Bishounen. The Helping Goddesses had just made them too powerful. I mean, certainly they were cute and they all had such nice hair and they wrote you little poems and Unconquered Orichalcum Shark Master of the Whispering Underworld had the tightest little ass... but the Helping Goddesses just couldn't say no to them. They had created Exalted even more cute then they were, and the sheer power of the Bishounen's Moe was threatening the Ultimate System itself!

So obviously the problem was the Bishounens. Clapping themselves on the back and saying how brilliant and smart (and cute!) they all were the Goddesses got together and decided to overthrow the Bishounens. And the Catgirls while they were at it. Little harridans always making time with THEIR BIS... ahem. Yes. Anyway, suffice it to say things went along after that. The Helping Goddesses retreated to Heaven (mainly because the Magical Girls ahd taken this "kill all other exalts" thing a little too seriously) where they remain to this day. Overseeing Creation. Maintaining the Ultimate System. Looking down wistfully at the world below and wondering if maybe... just maybe... there is some worthy person down there...

> politics

The Helping Goddesses are divided into many overlapping factions on various political issues. Many of these revolve around what operating system the Ultimate System should be using (along with other HG artifacts). They also at least vaguely related to the question of the rule of the Magical Girls vs. the Bishonen, but really, who cares about that when you could be fighting for OS-3?

BronzeSoft Faction

The BronzeSoft Faction, headed by Goddess First Class Ketchup Gates (a Moderator), seeks to maintain the status quo. The BronzeSoft OS, periodically upgraded, has been standard in Heaven's systems for centuries with vast success. (All rumors connecting the Contagion to the Y2K bug are firmly denied.) It may crash a lot and eats memory like a pig, but all the applications are written for it. Sure, the Neo-Empress may be a brutal tyrant, but do you really want the Catgirls to turn all of creation into a giant litter box? They backed the decision to overthrow the Bishonens and Catgirls and stand by their decision. The conservative faction, full of grumpy old women who feel no one appreciates the sacrifices they made. Why in their day, EVERY DIRECTION IN THE CELESTIAL CITY WAS UPHILL AND THEY LIKED IT.

>> No.25572489

Open GoldSource Movement

The Open GoldSource Movement wants greater freedom to reprogram the Ultimate System and to create new protocols. They've created a group of potential OSes all freely available to anyone who wants to take them and tinker with them. If they were allowed to go in and redo the Ultimate System, everyone would be able to freely personalize their protocols and it would be much easier to find permanent bug fixes.

It remains unclear how exactly they plan for Creation to survive the period in which the Ultimate System was being reprogrammed and all the bugs worked out of these experimental OSes.

The Open GoldSource Movement also supports restoring the Bishonens to rule of Creation, subject to suitable monitoring by Heaven, of course. Quite clearly the Magical Girls just aren't hacking it.

The OGSM has no single leader; it is decentralized by nature, and at times, competes against itself as much as against the BronzeSoft faction.

>> No.25572498

The Silver Faction

Led by Goddess First Class Wilhelmina Jena Brianna, the Silver Faction insists on the coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1 (the one being gold coins). Despite repeated loud angry speeches about how Creation is being crucified on a Cross of Gold, Wilhelmina still has yet to clearly explain to most Helping Goddesses why exactly this is important. However, this support for non-Jade currencies has led the Silver Faction to promote various Barbarian groups who are stuck using silver, copper, and gold coinage, and to support the Moonsilver-using Catgirls.
The Kill Bishie Faction

For millenia, this small group has been focused on killing one single Bishonen over and over, every time he reincarnates. No one is sure why he is so important or why they are so angry with him, but they've been doing a great job so far. Their leader operates under a seemingly permanent disguise 'The Widowed Bride'.
Project EVA

The members of Project EVA are disatisfied with the world. They believe humanity has hit a deadend, unable to advance due to the presence of so many superior beings around it--Exalts, Gods, Alien Princesses, etc. Ever since the Second Impact (the Contagion), humanity has stagnated, unable to advance, the mere pawns of others. Only if humanity is forced up the chain of Moe can humanity survive the Age of Lessened Cuteness and achieve its rightful place (thus freeing the Helping Goddesses to kick back and relax, letting humanity do the hard work, coincidentally enough). It remains unclear how Goddess First Class Glinda Ikari plans to make this transition come to pass, but rumors whisper of warstriders constructed out of the body of one of the Not Fun at All, and Protocol-Spawned Children to pilot them... But only rumors, or they all would have been executed long ago. But where there's smoke, there's usually smoke elementals...

Well the main premise of the game so far is basically Modern Alchemicals. Some houserules make some minor changes (such as the Alchemical Core itself being an sentient AI if you desire), but roughly remain the same.

As for story wise, the game takes place in the West in Wavecrest. The gist is that when the PC's first Exalted, they helped out a man named Dr. Valinkov, in which he claimed his inventions would pave a new path for peace in the West with a treaty called, "The Great Western Trade Agreement", in where the powers of the west would be unified into one big whole.

So the PC's helped him out by hunting some terrorist groups right up to the day of the Great Western Trade Agreement, guarded by a very large chunk of the Western navel fleet as a whole. Two fruits of Dr. Valinkov's research were shown. One being a prototype super battleship which would outclass anything afloat, the latter being the Doctor's personal invention. An experimental mech named, "Viator"

Naturally, the trade conference was attacked by elemental forces, who claimed this agreement would doom creation as a whole. One of the PC's managed to talk to the enemy general to see about doing things. Just as he accepted however, Dr. Valinkov betrayed everyone by destroying a very large section of the Western Fleet with a black hole.

What followed after that was tailing Dr. Valinkov to a secret base where he met up with his boss, the person who originally made Alchemicals, Dr. Evelyn Bell. She explained to the PC's over a shotgun dinner that the Great Western Trade Agreement was actually a ploy by the people higher up in power to see out the lower class of Creation to alien powers such as the Raksha Balorians, the Underworld, and more. Bell thinks the only solution is to rip the governments of the world up by their roots to purge them of corruption, and she had a very large portion of Alchemicals, technology, and Viator to do it with.

>> No.25573188


So the PC's plan this entire time has been to try and stop Bell. At first it was difficult as the government was hunting them as well, but they recently managed to get breathing room on them after a story arc which was just completed.

Also one of the PC's challenged Dr. Valinkov (Who is a massive wrestling nut) in Viator to a Hell-in-a-Cell match for their ultimate showdown

That's the cliff notes version. If you're interested I could give out more information.

Oh well, plan B: Kidnap the Scarlet Empress, use abyssal social charms, a first age essence drain artifact and the Black Succubus Arts from the Abyssal preview book to break her apart and restore her as an addicted and in love slave to my character who will return her to the Realm and use its full force upon the Deathlords, toppling them one by one with the help of the Dual Monarch, then shoving them inside the calcified bodies of the Neverborn and walling it all off, and leaving a sign that says NO SOLARS ALLOWED with smaller text saying 'fuck you Black Concordat'. Then blow up anyone marginally threatening in Creation with the Essence Defence Grid and in the span of centuries kill off all the Dragonblood and replace them with horrible abyssal/terrestial/akuma spawn.

Does anyone else find choosing virtue values to be kind of annoying.

Right now I'm making a making a Twilight (similar looks to the character in this picture, yes, I'm making a loli character, sue me) and I have no clue what the fuck virtues I should give her.

I'm just not a fan of how they dictate roleplaying. If you're playing a high-valor character, you HAVE to roll to fail conviction checks solely so you don't blindly charge into every single fucking encounter like a goddamn idiot.

High Valor makes you an idiot shounen hero

High Compassion makes you a way-too-dedicated "DEFENDER OF JUSTICE AND THOSE WHO ARE INJUSTICED"

High Temperance makes you a snobby pseudo-monk

High Conviction makes you a "NEVER ABANDON THE PLAN I MUST FUFILL MY MOTIVATION" idiot who would take on all of the Incarnae at once if it fulfilled their motivation

She's a bowyer who exalted when she was nearly-killed by a DB because one of her bows was used to kill his brother. Even though she's a member of the Realm, she secretly respects and worships the Anathema after getting jaded by the Realm being a bunch of crazies and secretly seeing a Solar protect her town.

In terms of personality--she's incredibly devoted to her motivation (Craft the ultimate bow so that Solars may use it to strike down the Realm and restore their rightful power) ,so high Conviction there. But I'm stuck on the rest. She's a happy-go-lucky kind of person who's somewhat prone to indulging too heavily in vices (though it's never anything more than drinking or something low-key like that), and while she will come to the aid of others, it's usually only when helping them will progress her motivation.

As an archer, she does not like to blindly rush into enemy attacks, though she is very forceful when it comes to fighting--if she thinks that you have to die to progress her goals...well, you dead, son.
