Hello, everyone.I don't really like the idea of making "meta-threads", but I figure that I'm posting so rarely right now that this one can be forgiven and justified.So yes, I'm in the middle of my internship in the UK. Food is bad, weather is worse, I work for free, and my spare time is next to nil (I'm typing this on my bus commute). I'm enjoying myself.But this is not a goddamn blog, just a post to remind whoever of you guys who might be reading this that Exalted Quest has not been forgotten or abandoned, but just paused. I miss it (and I guess I kinda miss you faggots too), and you can bet that once I get back home and get my shit in order, the show WILL go on.For now, I'd like you people to just collect in this thread (which I'll try and check on my way back home from work 9 hours from now) all your feelings, suggestions, complaints, ideas, opinions, Q&A you want the A to, stuff you wanna see once the quest returns, etc. Because right now I might not be able to post, but you can bet that I'm thinking about it, planning and plotting for when I'll be back.
>>34128176Hey Exaltedfag, it's good to hear from you.Don't me started on the fucking weather in the UK. An English Summer? What kind of mythical creature is that?
>>34128176AW SHIT NIGGAH
Alright, here's a question about the Directional Fortress under Tianna: Do you feel that Maka may have bitten off more than she can chew when she found it? It's just that a lot of the movers and shakers of Creation would want to either take control of it for themselves, or failing that, destroy Tianna outright to prevent Maka from using it. Yeah, okay, Maka's a Solar exalt and all, but could really she take on the Realm, possibly at least two different factions of the underworld and the Sidereals of the Bronze Faction? The Realm, in particular, would pull out all the stops to prevent Maka from claiming the power of a Directional Titan.
>>34128176HELL YEAH, Exalted Quest is coming back!Just continue doing what you were doing and it should be fine.
>>34128176As a britbong, I have to ask you wtf you are talking about. The weather has been pretty nice this summer.Glad to hear the quest isn't ded, may check it out
>>34129056What you poms consider "Nice" weather is pretty shitty compared to much of the rest of the world.
Thanks for the update, Exaltedfag.Now go enjoy a lovely British summer and pick up all those hot, depressed 18 year old chicks who are going to be at bars around the country drinking themselves into a coma.
>>34128176Praise the sun!I had questions, but it's been a while, so I forgot them. Something abour pirates and the abyssals? Hmm...Oh yeah. Pearl building and Gem. Empire building is usually an entire game of its own. How will that be done while keeping the plot moving? We already have Gem's liberation in mind, but until that happen, a lot of time (and events) will pass.And it will feel...repetitive? The events and troubles I can think for Gem Arc are the same for Tianna/Pearl. Building and abyssals. Andthe realm.
>>34128176Hey, glad the quest is still on life support. It's my favorite. When does your internship end? Have you gotten a chance to look at the 3e leak yet?
>>34128176goddamn that is a great picture.
Lunch break, let's see if I can make it in time.>>34128522The fact that it's a secret known to few means that you can decide how big a deal it will be. So it depends on how much exactly you think Maka can chew, and what kind of bite she'll take.>>34129056Yeah, no, sorry, it sucks. While I'm here enduring clouds and rain my friends back home are playing at the beach with 35 degrees.>>34129744Honestly I have absolutely no idea. It's not good, for an Exalted GM, to plan that far ahead, in my book.>>34130155Until mid-to-late september. Haven't checked 3e, mostly for lack of interest in it.
>>34128176>stuff you wanna see once the quest returnsmoar Tia PoV pls
>>34128176thanks for the update, EF. I check the catalog every morning for a pic of Maka in the hopes that ExaltedQuest has returned. I'm sure others feel the same. Take care of yourself, EF. We'll be here when you get back.
Great to see you back, we miss you too and we can't wait to see you get back.Minor question, what ever happened to the stuff we looted from Deled?I had other questions but I've forgotten a lot of them at the moment
>>34130872>I check the catalog every morning for a pic of Maka in the hopes that ExaltedQuest has returned.He has a twitter you can bookmark for updates...https://twitter.com/Exaltedfag
>>34130914I'm aware, but as a rule I avoid twitter at all costs. Social Media is nothing but trouble.
>>34130928so just bookmark the page, you still see any updates when you check itit ain't rocket science or the plague, its a fucking useful tool...
>>34128176He's alive! Fuck yes.
Work for free?How do you survive? Sidereal magicks?
My heart skipped a beat when I saw his thread, looking back at some old threads we don't spend nearly enough time with Irene and Tia as of lateWe also don't have nearly as much art as I would like, that can't really be helped though
>>34131292HAHAWE HAVE FOUND OUR SIDEREAL>>34131310>we don't spend nearly enough time with Irene and Tia as of lateIndeed, I can't remember the last time Tia was with the party....
So just a request, when you restart the quest could you put a summery of the quest up til now in the OP? It's been awhile and I'm not sure I'm going to have the time to reread the whole thing like I originally planed to do once September rolled around. And I'm sure other readers would appreciate the recap too after the hiatus.
>>34131313>I can't remember the last time Tia was with the party....We saw Tia when we went and visited the Lunars in the north. I can't remember the last time we talked to Samiel or Irene though.The quest was focusing a lot on Amata, Pyre Spark and the servants before the Hiatus hit.
>>34131367I remember thinking early in the quest we don't spend enough time with Samiel and how minor he seemed, but then he showed up right before we attacked the wyld and now it's like Irene is the minor character, we should bring her along when we fuck up the Lintha
>>34131367>The quest was focusing a lot on Amata, Pyre Spark and the servants before the Hiatus hit.Pyre really stole our attention when she showed upSidereal fuckery I'm sure
>>34131367>>34131422we need to get Tia back with us while we spend time with Pyre, I'd love to see both of them interactingand more Tia and Pyre time is always a good thing
>>34131335Yeah, a recap would probably be a good idea.Hey, maybe we could do a recap from the perspective of an NPC in Tianna's recordkeeping offices tasked with starting on the first draft of the history books chronicling Pearl's founding, and maybe tweaking it a little for propaganda purposes.
>>34131410I think she's in charge of defending the city, so I'm not sure how taking her out to sea would go. It's idea though.>>34131422Oh those wacky Sidereals>>34131439I want more time interacting with our companions in general, but with a cast the size of Exalted Quest, it difficult to spend as much time socializing with everyone I wantI mean we've got>Amata>Irene>Samiel>Tia>Those other two Lunars whose names elude me>Mikhail>Mikhai's Lunar Mate whose name I forget did Lunars get slapped with Arcane Fate when I wasn't looking?>Regis>Millian>Pyre Spark>Zareen>Silk>Valeriana>Dancing Smokeand maybe if he shows up again>Running Swallowand that's not including any I forgotI'd like to spend more time with all of them but that's just not practical if we want to keep the plot moving
It's good to know this quest is still alive, the hiatus started right after I finished reading the archives.Honestly, the quest is really good.You have a good grasp of what the players find enjoyable and you're really good at writing entertaining dialog. Also, I find the whole "Directional Titan literally beneath our feet" thing to be a bit too much for us to handle right now, not really because we lack raw power (our physical stats are actually good, and our social stats are downright scary) but because we lack the supporting structure to succeed at doing anything but protecting the secret and hiding the entrances.We lack the infrastructure, defenses, scholars and workers to actually do much of anything without going there personally and either seducing or punching the problem until it goes away.And as much as I love the "Sex and Violence mantra, there are some things we can't solve with that approach.
>>34131660>And as much as I love the "Sex and Violence mantra, there are some things we can't solve with that approach.That's why we've been assembling other people to help us. And we have branched out a little bit, but what I call the three Fs "Fighting, Fucking, and Faith" will always be our primary focus.
One thing is certain: We need to design Pearl with takeoff in mind. I'd rather not be stuck choosing between using the Titan and keeping our city in one piece if we do manage to get the Titan opporational at some point in the future (or if we fuck it all up and somebody ELSE does).So, the question becomes: how can we design a city to survive suddenly losing the island it was built on. The two main solutions I can see are either integrating the foundations with the Titan itself and riding it around like a barnacle, or building the foundations of the city as one single waterproof unit and turning it all into an island of its own.
Overly long bathroom break! I hope no one will notice.>>34131292Long story short, the EU pays my food and lodging.>>34130896Handed over to Tianna armory.>>34131335Will almost certainly do so. If I forget, remind me.>>34131660>Also, I find the whole "Directional Titan literally beneath our feet" thing to be a bit too much for us to handle right nowBit of meta: that's by design.>>everyone else talking about npc limelight and relationships:My biggest weakness as a GM is that I'm addicted to having enormous casts of npcs. But I will do my best to keep all you say here in mind.
>>34131876Having an enormous cast is fine, as long as we have time to interact with them all. Sometimes you have the plot going to fast and characters get pushed to the wayside. And when that happens we're less likely to interact with them in the future as we have less attachment to them, it a self-perpetuating cycle.
>>34131777My fear is that we may not be able to gather enough allies and soldiers before shit hits the fan.Let's review the threat list, shall we?>At least four Abyssal Exalted: One main Leader who probably could kill us without much effort, without using the artifacts she most likely has, and three liutenants/minions who are much better equipped than we are at the moment. They are the biggest threat right now.> Lintha, or whatever is the name of the Innsmouth rip-offs with the huge demon ship. A major problem, since they sink any warships on the sea and disrupt the trade routes.> The Realm. Sure, they are on the other side of the ocean, but we've already seen that a single combat specced Dragonblooded can kick our ass if we aren't careful, and they have enough resources to simply bury us beneath a mountain of corpses, ships and minibosses. Not that threatening because we are such small fry we aren't worth the effort to destroy.we are outclassed in pretty much every front and our growth is restricted by the presence of the Lintha (Because they can destroy our navy with ease and thus cripple the operating range of our troops) and by simple lack of time to expand.
>>34132033>At least four Abyssal Exalted: One main Leader who probably could kill us without much effort, without using the artifacts she most likely has, and three liutenants/minions who are much better equipped than we are at the moment. They are the biggest threat right now.For the record, I believe it was established they have a full circle of Abyssals, and their leader isn't an Abyssal, she's a Deathlord.
>>34132033>but we've already seen that a single combat specced Dragonblooded can kick our ass if we aren't carefulDeled was not your average dragonblooded. He was well into the upper ranges of power that a DB can personally wield. It's not likely that the Relm will send others in his league after us unless we REALLY piss them off. Deled was only out here in the first place because the Relm wanted him off where they didn't have to deal with his shit. The real threat from Relm dragonblooded isn't power, but numbers and equipment. We can probably handle the average DB in a one on one with little trouble, but they're not going to come after us one at a time and on an equal footing. They're going to come ten at a time out of fucking nowhere and open up the fight will artifacts.
>>34132103I stand corrected.Also, that just means its worse than I thougth. Normally, I'm not one to advocate diplomacy when dealing with necromantic Champions of Hell (or their equivalents in various different settings), I'm much more of a "Purge the Heretic, Cleanse them in Holy Flame!" kind of guy, but its best to use diplomacy and to stall for time so we can gather strenght.As it stands, a direct engagement with any of our enemies is almost suicide.
>>34131823at this point I think Pearl's foundations are actually the Titan
>>34131876>My biggest weakness as a GM is that I'm addicted to having enormous casts of npcs. But I will do my best to keep all you say here in mind.Do keep in mind that we can only see a very small amount of people and over the course of one thread a week, interact with them surprisingly little.So try to restrict how expanded the cast gets because its not far from "Hey you Exalted ally #17, help me with this".It also severely limits Tia Time, which is despicable.
>>34132256We also have reason to believe them to be, like, not comic book evil. We got some hints that they can be reasonable, maybe redeemable, maybe even not as evil as they seem.
>>34132269Nope. It's deeper than any of the digging yet done for the manse. Part of what prompted us to go asking about it was how no matter how far they dug, there wasn't any bedrock to anchor the foundation to.
How big is the island, I've been wondering how much of it is actually on top of the Titan, at the very least Smoke's volcano is, Tianna proper too probably, but Pearl is way on the other side of the island
>>34132478That sounds like an interesting information to investigate for.
>>34132339Yeah, that's why I'm even considering working with them.And i've just remembered that there was that ghost who was looking for the Titan and that Phoenix killed (exorcised? Double killed? Whatever) claiming it wasn't one of his.Hopefully, we can engineer an Enemy of My Enemy situation to get them to cooperate with us, and maybe then we can convince them to tell us what the fuck their plans are.
>>34132253Hm, isn't Deled on a master of one of the dragon styles? And aren't there FIVE of them? And aren't there a few Grandmasters with 5+ essence and mastery of all five styles?So isn't Deled just a grunt?
>>34132814Yes. Yes. I'm not sure. No.Deled is the upper end of what the Realm is willing to send out on Wyld Hunts. The most powerful Dragon-Bloods are on the Blessed Isle, waiting for members of another house to make a move and the Civil War to start.
>>34128176Don't you mock the cuisine of my homeland. It might be unhealthy as hell, but we like our food hearty.However, you seem to have taken to the traditional pastime of complaining about the weather like a fish to water, so I can forgive you this time.
>>34133716Nope, sorry, it's shit.>>34132814Deled is one of the very best (like no one ever was. To catch you is his- nvm)It's just that he wasn't expected to fight you, being part of essentially a recon team. He was alone and with no support. And it still took you, a surprise attack from a Tiger Warrior, and a backstab fom a ninja lunar to bring him down.As for my npc excess syndrome, i'll spoil you that my plans include, at a bare minimum:- "closing" Maka's circle, plus respective lunars-each of them gets at least one mortal henchman (which doesn't get spotlight time unless you actually go after them.)- filling the abyssal circle plus the Deathlord which depending on your actions might have more spotlight than just being antagonists.-Depending on how you handle the Gem plot, Gem characters.-Depending on how you handle the Carve a Kingdom in the West plot, western characters.I will not introduce any more Sidereal characters than I already have because REDACTED BY ORDER OF THE BUREAU OF DESTINY.Is that, plus what you already have, too many npc, just enough npc, or not enough npc?
>>34134232As a bare minimum? What about the Tianna DBs?And i plan on voting for the Gem plot more than the Western Kingdom plot so the amount of effort you spend there might need tweaking. And what about the Titan plot? You'll need characters there.
>>34134232I don't think Maka needs an entire circle, especially if you're introducing their Lunar mates.
>>34134232It is a lot, but personally I don't think it's too bad, in the end Maka's best ability is gathering allies, I don't expect us to be very intimate with a lot of them, I bet a lot of our relationships with characters to end up like how we are with our pirate captains
>>34132814Deled was a specialist. He only used one style because rather than master each style once, he'd rather master a single style five times over. His ability and mastery of the water style blows that of just about everyone else out of the water (pun unintended), five-style grandmasters included.
>>34134232Wasn't there a special name for a group consisting of A perfect circle of Solars, their Lunar mates, and a Sidereal adviser?Also, I'd like for an Infernal to show up, even if they don't have a big plot roll.
>>34134232I don't mind having a large cast, especially since a lot of them seem like thy're going to be in different locations around Creation or gone depending on how we end up dealing with them
>>34134333>What about the Tianna DBs?Depends on circumstances.>And what about the Titan plot? You'll need characters there.You'll see...>>34134360>I don't think Maka needs an entire circle,It's less about NEED and more about "solars are cool".>>34134547>Also, I'd like for an Infernal to show upMight happen, but i warn you that my infernals are based on how i did infernals before the relevant book happened (i.e. dangerous and mysterious rather than the entire game's spotlight-stealing squad.)Yep, I really didn't like that book and how much everyone at WW sucked its cock.
>>34134547"A ticking bomb of awesome"?
>>34134547>Also, I'd like for an Infernal to show up, even if they don't have a big plot roll.The other day I was thinking about where the plot would go once EF got back and started writing again. One of the ideas I had was that the person who took over Gem from us was a Malefactor.
>>34134547A perfect circle. Except that it includes the DB gents of the Solars, Lunars and Sids as well.So you're looking at a small army of Exalted to from a 'true' Perfect Circle.
>>34134673I'm not one to brag but I'm fairly sure that no one will be able to guess what i have planned for what really happened at Gem.
>>34134754A Sidereal punched it into a Turkey rather than a duck, didn't they?
>>34134754>I'm not one to brag but I'm fairly sure that no one will be able to guess what i have planned for what really happened at Gem.>worrying intensifies
>>34134754But the whole idyllic upbringing and 'Disney Princess' levels of spoiled won't change right?Cause i was the guy who first suggested it and it's something i'm pretty proud of.
>>34134854Maka has mentioned before that she was spoiled when she was talking to Irene
>>34134232Speaking of potential character bloat, are we ever going to meet Amata's other kids?
>>34134808evilambassador.jpg>>34134854No, that's canon by now. Maka was ultra mega giga double spoiled turboprincess alpha 9000.>>34134970Maybe! Also depends if Maka actively tries to, or if you just wait for them to happen. Finally got back home. Shower, cooking&eating while watching episodes of Saint Seiya, then back to you, this time not typing on my goddamn phone at least. Keep questions and suggestions &c. coming.
>>34135083When is Tia going to knock us up.
>>34135110Never unless we stop taking Maiden Tea, which might interfere with us fun in with other non-Tia people
>>34135110it be easier to knock Tia up, she could take some pregnancy charms and help things along
>>34135199>implicationsAlso finding dark skin pregnant art that is sfw is exactly as hard as you'd think it is
>>34135308Anon, I don't think that's SFW, strictly speaking.
>>34135337In what way? Nothing is showing that shouldn't be, if only barely, and it is the most tame image I could could find that fit the criteria.
>>34135433She has nipple rings, for one thing. The whole thing is designed for tittilation.
>>34135433I don't know what sort of regulations your workplace has dude, but I'd be out on my ass if I was looking over that shit.
>>34135472>>34135472That doesn't mean it's nsfw, sfw mean not genitals or female nipples are showing. However on a closer look it's ambiguous whether or not the nipples coverings are see through or if it's it's part of the design, deleted just to be safe.
>>34135572>sfw mean not genitals or female nipples are showingWhat the hell kind of workplace do you have?
>>34134645>the relevant book happenedIn my headcanon, Lillum isn't a bloated form on a block crying for her parents, but a spoiled princess of Hell that projects the souls she carries outside of her body as animal friends that she goes on adventures with. She and Ebon Dragon have tea once a week, and the two are struggling to keep their relationship fresh after so much time, She refers to the Scarlet Empress as "that hussy trying to steal my Ebby".She still behaves innocently because ED is into corrupting her, but they both know she's faking by now, so it has put some strain on their visits. The affair with Scarlet Empress is actually just ED's plan to make her jealous and hopefully get a better reaction out of her.
>>34135548If they're that restrictive why are you on 4chan at work to begin with?4chan's definition is exposed female nipples or any genitalia, not something that's just risque.
>>34135715I work at home. Also I meant to type>>sfw mean no genitals or female nipples are showing
>>34135083One suggestion I have is, in between tackling the Lintha and Abyssals you try to work in some kind of downtime akin to Dancing Smoke's festival. With our current timetable it seems like we're going to be doing those back to back, and two combat adventures in a row doesn't sound like the best idea.
I always found perfect circles pretty contrived. Why can't a circle include 2 Zeniths, for example? If a Solar hears about a group of other solars in his region and tries to jion them, does he give up once he hears that they're already five?
>>34134645Exaltedfag's got the right idea; more Solars may not be necessary, but it'd be neat as fuck to see more. Muscled Girl Dawn Caste Solar, when?
>>34136524The better option is to just ignore Lillum altogether.
>>34139212I don't think I've ever been in a group that has actually used her>>34138338Hey EF, when you finish your internship mind giving us like a days notice before you restart Exalted Quest?
Sooo....when will Maka find a cute little femboy to tease and dom and share with male Tia?
>>34142279>implying we don't just need to put Regis in a dress
>>34143051Why would you do that to Regis? He works hard to be the manliest shota possible.
Hey Op, I got a questionHow do you feel about the quest players making Maka a super duper ultra omega turboslut 9000: Special Edition?Personally, I don't mind it, but do you sometimes wish that everyone would ease up on that particular aspect of her character? Or is it all cool?
>>34146423That is patently untrue.We did not get the special edition.
>>34146423I don't mind but I wish they would let us pick out more clothes than wearing nothing at all
>>34146532How do I upgrade?
>>34146545Serious answer: Every time it comes to a vote, you're free to make suggestions. It's just that those kind of suggestion don't even get shouted down. Just ignored and disregarded. So you're out of luck on that front.
>>34146684>So you're out of luck on that front.I'm depressingly aware
>>34146552Monsterance of Celestial Portion?
>>34146552Prayer to Venus/Luna?
>>34146704Congratulations! You get to play the role of Maka's remaining vestigial modesty. Or superego if you want to be fancy.Good luck friend.
>>34146798I'm not even asking for much, someone suggested a sundress once and I thought that was a great idea, although more dresses of various kinds would be lovely
>>34146887While I'm for keeping her outfit slutty, I'm totally behind her wearing a wider variety of cloths.
>>34146962I'd be perfectly fine with something like that, in fact the sundress I had in mind would have been backless and really short, probably ending just below the hips, I had a picture saved but I don't know if I could find it anymore
>>34146887Perfectly in character. If you envision the discussions as Maka's thought processes, then you get seven or eight trains of thought about how this looks pretty or how that is pretty. One persistent line on how 'This is my fetish.' And you, the lone voice in her head saying 'Um, this might be a bit much...Guys? Guys? Is anyone even listening?'See? Makes perfect sense.
>>34147036Well if you do find it, be sure to post it. Also, why are we talking mostly in spoilers?
>>34147182One more outfit before I turn in for the night and one more bump for this thread
>>34139146You know where it's at bro.>>34139239Will do on twitter. Expect my return by 25-30 of september.>>34146423I had no plans for the PC and had her start as as much of a blank slate as i could, when i started. I don't regret this one bit.>>34147059That's why i run the quest with you people at "the voices". It seems to just make sense.
>>34150784Quick question. If we're fully committed to 'Sex and Violence' and Maka's bread and butter, can we have Dawn and Dawn charms at favored ability XP rates?
>>34147059>If you envision the discussions as Maka's thought processes, then you get seven or eight trains of thought about how this looks pretty or how that is pretty. One persistent line on how 'This is my fetish.' And you, the lone voice in her head saying 'Um, this might be a bit much...Guys? Guys? Is anyone even listening?'>>34150784>That's why i run the quest with you people at "the voices". It seems to just make sense.Oh dear sweet Jesus We are the Great Curse
>>34152620>The great curse was every Solar being talked to by the voices of 4chanThe Usurpation was a kindness.
>>34153218Will we get any non-Solar Solaroids as circle candidates?
>>34153511Any chance of Infernals appearing in this quest?
>>34154778He answered that already>>34134547>>34134645
Amongst Mortal Allies, who's most likely to exalt?
>>34154778Slim. And they wouldn't be anything like the infernals published on WW books.>>34154862The most awesome.
>>34155601Are you going to include any non-canon exalt types, like 3e's Exigents or Liminals?Do you intend to ever features Alchemicals?
Any hope for Alchemicals to show up? Or anything related to Autochtonia, at all? C'mon Exaltefag, you know that using the entirety of Exalted's setting will be awesome.Also, how different are your infernals from WW's? At the very least, Lilun/Lilin is still canon, right?
>>34155856>Exaltedfag loves magitechI'll be surprised if we never hear anything about it
>>34155856I'd be a lot more excited to meet non-human races, like the Jadeborn or Dragon Kings. We've already met Fair Folk, and we're going to fight the Lintha, so it's not like we'll be lacking on that front. I just love that this is a human-dominated setting that has present-but-mysterious, fantastic nonhuman races.
>>34155793>Are you going to include any non-canon exalt types, like 3e's Exigents or Liminals?Fuck no.>Do you intend to ever features Alchemicals?I love robots. I'd like to. Just, y'know, not force it.>>34155856>Also, how different are your infernals from WW's?Biggest difference is that they are mysterious so that players will genuinely not know what to expect from them.You know, statting cthulhu and all that.>>34155901I don't particularly like jadeborn. I might use DKs, but, again, not gonna force it.
>>34135248Indeed. And it allows allows us to spawn more children.I mean if we can get Tia prgenant, we can get girls in our cult pregnant too, perhaps our lovely new wife Amata, and perhaps our lover the DB tech princess.Exalted approaches very mature subject, and i am not above abusing them.Still considering that we would be on board with spamming solar children we should consider becoming a responsible parental figure for them when they arrive. just because we can let loose a torrent of crotchspawn does not mean we should in any way not be loving and responsible towards them. Playdates every day or so with the lot of them to make sure we get a parental bond established, get them to see their siblings as such and educate them into being useful and productive members of society once they become adults, and not decadent self absorbed realm shitstains.
>>34155793>Are you going to include any non-canon exalt types, like 3e's Exigents or Liminals?>Non-canon>Official splats in 3EI have to call you out on using the word canon in this context. "New" or "Non-2e"? Sure, but they are definitely fucking canon.
>>34156875They're not canon until they're published, which will be years from now. Until then, they're little more than a glimmer in the devs' eyes.
>>34156161What's up with Exigent and Liminal hate? I've only heard the barebones shit, but I don't understand why people are writing them off as non-canon
>>34157440Not hate per say, but we know nothing about them, so writing them off is prudent.
>>34157440I don't like them and I don't think they add anything useful, cool or interesting to my kind of Exalted. Thus, I don't want them in my games.
>>34157440Most people are pretty on board with Exigents, but Liminals are literally just Prometheans from what we've heard, and don't fit Exalted in any way, really. They're dead bodies/minds with new souls that are also, apparently, some kind of exalt. They're supposed to be the underworld Terrestrials, or something, as opposed to Abyssals, which are death Solars.Most peoples' problems with Liminals and Getimians basically boils down to, 'I literally cannot begin to see what niche you think they'll be filling, and their design choice sounds tacky and not at all fitting with the other Exalted.'Personally, I'm holding my judgement until I see them, but that's what the argument tends to boil down to.>>34157586Case in point.
>>34155601So Regis? Alright, good to know
>>34157711Technically at this point Pyre is more awesome than Regis, she kicked Deled in the face yo, but because Regis travels around with us he would have more opportunities to do cool things
>>34157586But Exigents make sense. Powerful Gods should be able to give the Flame of Exaltation, if they wanted. As for Liminals, that's fine I guess.
>>34157769But anon, Pyre is already an ExaltedGold-faction Sidereal, duh
>>34157811Nah. She wouldn't have gotten punked by that ghost if she was.
>>34157832Unless she did it on purpose, because Sidereal
>>34157769>RegisMaka is going to absolutely flip her shit when she finds out he got "Volunteered" to be the exchange hostage with the abyssals.
>>34157811No, Tiger Warrior doesn't work on Exalts.
>>34157233Except, you know, that they're going to at least have fluff on them all in the core book because they're making sure there's functional space for all exalts from that point.
>>34157933They're, AT BEST, not canon until the 3e core rulebook is published. There wasn't so much as a whisper of them in the 3e playtest either. Aside from the teaser on Liminals and devs making allusions to the fact that they will be eventually including them, they don't exist yet.Thus, they're non-canon, until such a time as they actually enter into the canon, at which point they will be canon.That's what canon means.
>>34157787You say they should, I say they shouldn't. Matter of taste and of who is the GM. My opinion is that the Endowment charm and making god-blooded should be enough for them.Also, boy, do you guys like trying to guess who the sidereal is....assuming there IS one.I will say this: I have one sid reveal planned since about... Thread #10 or so.
>>34157846I feel bad for Amata a lot, she's the one that has to make the smart but hard choices, the ones Maka would never want toShe also makes me nervous sometimes, I sometimes feel like she's just using Maka and doesn't actually love her, but then I remember she had a sixsome with Maka and her kids and I think it's okay
>>34157987They're guaranteed to be in the system. Exigents is going to be the second splat. Stop pretending canon means what you think it does.
>>34157998Alright, I don't get your beef with Exigents, but fair enough.
>>34158022Canon literally means it's been published in a current edition. They are GOING TO BE canon. They are NOT YET canon, any more than Devil Tigers were canon prior to Broken Winged Crane being printed.You don't know what the word 'canon' means.
>>34157884>Implying she needed Tiger Warrior Training?>Implying she didn't appreciate the excuse to stop holding back so muchI'm not saying it was SiderealsBut it was Sidereals.
>>34157998>Also, boy, do you guys like trying to guess who the sidereal is.>...assuming there IS one.Guessing who's a Sidereal is a favorite past time of mine
>>34158004>but then I remember she had a sixsome with Maka and her kids and I think it's okay.When did this happen? And why don't I remember this this little piece of wincest?
>>34159205I think it was the night after we got back from taking care of the Wyld Zone
>>34159205It's not incest when they're focused on the one person. Yeah, it's kind of iffy, still, but they're also DBs.
>>34159576Don't be like that anon, let me have this. Let me dream.
Pastebin smutscenes when?
>>34162549As soon as you write and post them, anon.
>>34162577>>34159699To make it more interesting, if someone writes one (even not necessarily smut) and i like it, or if we get some new drawing from drawfags, they will get:1) One xp for Maka and the ability to "lock" if, if he wants, for a specific purpose ("only for dawn stuff", "only for a social charm", or whatever, you make up the condition).2) The ability to give me a name that i will use for a NPC sooner or later (as long as it's not TOO stupid of a name). 3) The ability to decide how many kids will Maka and Tia will have in the next couple of years (like, "none", or "two twin girls", or "three boys and one girl in that order", etc.). There is no guarantee that this will happen in-game, but it will happen!4) You will get a trivia or a mini spoiler that will probably surprise you without ruining the plot to anyone. Mostly stuff i thought about but won't mention directly, side details, etc. If you have a specific question nagging you this is a good excuse to get an answer, otherwise i'll just reveal something myself (maka or amata's three sizes, tia's four sizes, background details on some npc, what's the meaning of the X, etc)It's like a kickstarter, only free!
>>34163475Forgot to mention, you PICK one of the four, you don't get all four. lol.
>>34163475I guess I needed an excuse to do something, I'll see about having something by the time you come back
>dat OP picI had forgotten how much I missed Maka's strokin tits
>>34163600Remember, they're even more awesome now since we upgraded her social stat, including her appearance.
>>34163475>3) The ability to decide how many kids will Maka and Tia will have in the next couple of years (like, "none", or "two twin girls", or "three boys and one girl in that order", etc.). There is no guarantee that this will happen in-game, but it will happen!Minus someone successfully achieving this reward tier, how likely are Maka and Tia to produce children, and who's most likely to be the mother?Also, my vote is for twins. One with white hair and a green streak, the other with green hair and a white streak. Eyes of red-gold, one a little paler, one a little tanner. Interracial fraternal twins are adorable.
>>34164593You don't get to vote unless you produce something ART.But, i'd say that considering the two of them... The answers to your questions are "very" and "both".
>>34163475Time to rev up that smut. I shall study /d/, /d/elve into the 1d4chan smut archives and become one with the Weekend Smut Threads.I shall produce the single most filthy, smut related Exalted Quest Pastebin ever.
>>34164722...i can sort of respect that weird level of dedication.Gonna go to sleep. Id thread dies while i'm away, find a way to make the "art" reach me, like via twitter link.
>>34164722I will give this thread a bump in hopes that the glory may be shared by all
So where are the archives for this thing, or are they lost forever?
