Sorry. Here I am.Non-game thread to discuss XP expenditure, random facts, clothing, art and drawfagging, and stuff.Old thread: >>36500420
>>36506255What charms do we get? Also, did we heal 1hp? I see that we are at 4/5 now.
>>36506255That art that got posted in the thread, did the anon ask for something for it?if it's a secret that's fine, I'm just wondering if we'll get XP for them

>>36506255>ClothingMy vote is still for this>>36504331> art and drawfaggingIn addition to >>36500945, there were two NSFW pictures in >>36500966, but he deleted the post.
>>36506312>[zenith]Shit those are all fucking cool
>>36506312I'm gonna go with>Armored in Righteousness Stance (upgrades Iron Kettle Body, giving it the option to instead grant +2 soak for 2 essence)
>>36506312Armored in Righteousness Stance.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36506312[zenith]Considering we're about to tangle with abyssals I think Armored in Righteousness Stance is the most prudent option.
>>36506312>Armored in Righteousness StanceYeah this is what we've been talking aboutA question about it though, if we use it in one scene to activate it's 1 point soak ability can we spend another mote in the same scene to get the second point of soak?
>>36506406Then why did you vote for Zenith?
>>36506312>Armored in Righteousness StanceHorizon to Horizon Performance method is fucking terrifying though. Would our ministers preaching about us and UCS count?
>>36506440Oh that's just the category the charm is under, I was torn between ARS and those brutal social charm permanents but with abyssals on our plate we gotta get ready for war first.
>>36506312>Shockwave Fist Technique (Permanent, every other Unarmed attack can be carried out at a range of [Dawn] meters)This is pretty neat, but I'm gonna have to go with>>36506312>Armored in Righteousness Stance (upgrades Iron Kettle Body, giving it the option to instead grant +2 soak for 2 essence)
>>36506426From reading it, I'm going to guess that we lose IKB in favor of the new charm and can now only activate a +2 soak for 2 Essence?
>>36506468The upgrade gives us the option to opt for the 2 mote 2 soak scenelong. We can still use one mote for 1 soak.
>>36506468That's not how I read it>(upgrades Iron Kettle Body, giving it the OPTION to instead grant +2 soak for 2 essence)
>>36506303Yes>>36506309Not yet. Actually, I wanted to ask to all of you to post, in this thread, the following things:1) all quest-related art you know of and can post. If it's something that CAN'T SHOW THIS ON A CHRISTIAN BOARD put an imgur link or something.2) any proposal for Maka's clothes. Since Valeriana and Irene are on a roll, you might end up with a considerable wardrobe.Also: Today I went all-in and while on the bus home got down and wrote down... maybe not "all the Zenith charms", but quite a lot of them.As you might know, I used the entire "you get to pick between [ability] charms" rather than giving you a full list because... there aren't full lists, that would require me to go through the books and check every charm for conversion to Quest rules, then to think about new stuff that works or i might want for the Quest.And quite frankly that's a lot of work and I'm not sure I can/want to do it, so Charms have been written by me bit by bit when i had the time and the idea for them.But now I'm considering giving it a try. Keep in mind, as always, that I'm running this quest with an ad-hoc system and I'm fixing and changing and writing stuff as it comes to mind.So, what do you say? keeping the current "[ability] choices" thing, or giving you the full list?Keep in mind that "the full list" can be something tl;dr and cumbersome to have and to read on 4chan posts, and also can be a lot of choices that might not always be meaningful.Alternatively, we can do that you get the full list only for abilities that hit 5, which fits in nicely with the fact that for now only Zenith is at 5 and I've done only Zenith charms....Aaaaactually I haven't even done ALL Zenith charms. It wasn't a comprehensive, well-thought-out writeup. I just wrote a bunch of stuff and went "i'm done". Like in the past, remember that you can suggest charms, both in the "the book has charm X, can we get it" way and "hey, can we get a charm to do X?" way.
>>36506483>>36506485In that case, we'll probably want to go 1 soak when facing off against any number of extras, 2 soak against anyone heroic mortal or higher.
>>36506499I kind like the way we've been doing, it also helps some with voting when the times comes everyone isn't spilt between like a million different choices
>>36506499It's worked fine as we've been doing it. As long as you keep making charms we've been chatting about be among the voting options, it's all good.
>>36506499These were posted last thread, but the person who posted them deleted his post.https://imgur.com/a/Igm12 https://imgur.com/a/bWMevAs for clothes, if we're on a roll lets start with these, including another replacement tabard.
>>36506499I like the current choice selection you've given us. I think it helps keep us focused and not get overwhelmed by a huge glut of choice.I was also wondering if a rather risque piece of art about us would trigger HSDD if we had that horizon to horizon charm.
>>36506499>>36506499Maybe throw up the td:lr in a pastbin. Also, is Final Ray of Light an option? Because that charm is just badass
>>36506522What about what anon asked before, could we spend the motes separately in the same scene?This one was actually one I requested so I'm kind of proud of it
>>36506312>Armored in Righteousness Stance (upgrades Iron Kettle Body, giving it the option to instead grant +2 soak for 2 essence)Voting for this. We'll need it.By the way, those other charms are damn sweet and we should get them. Adamant Skin Technique is actually a lot better than I thought it would be, giving invulnerability for two whole turns instead of per attack.Regiment-Slaying Strike is also likewise ridiculous.
>>36506584I've been seeing a few mentions of this charm, what does it do in the tabletop?
>>36506312Man, I agree that AiRS is the better option since it's scene long and the system has a damage cap, but a perfect defense for 1 Essence is just sooo tempting.
>>36506584I wrote it, if that's what you mean :DAlso if you've drawn or commissioned art, come see me in IRC (Rizon #qmc) to cash it in.Another thing you could post here, other than art and clothes, is other "abstract sunburst" images, since i keep rotating the same five or so.
>>36506602If you die, as in 100% dead, it revives you. This is the only way I can think of to do this in Exalted and it costs 1 PERMANENT Essence.
>>36506603I think a PD can wait some, I do want it eventually, especially since I think it activates like our original soak charm did, we could pop it anytime we were about to get hit with an attack
>>36506645This one was I think one of the earliest arts we got in the quest, I know it was asked for in the regular /tg/ drawthreads
>>36506657One potential use for the PD is letting us fiddle with the essence reactor of the titan. It nearly killed us last time.I say this because I think we should consider the option of permanently disabling the titan if it looks like a deathlord stands a chance of controlling it.
>>36506518Remember on the murdering heart when those extras all jumped on us and got through our armour? Honestly, now instead of SHS we can do ARS. For Bosses AST would be best. Probably all of our battles have taken less than five turns.Deled Philips for example, we would have absolutely destroyed him had we had AST.
>>36506645Sorry I'm late, but quick question. How does [Sun-King Radiance] work with reguardless to fae? Does it do anything to stop them from changing roles/character or the usual fae-insane-logic-means-this-betrayal-is-in-fact-not-a-betrayal-(but-really-it-is)? Or is it just run of the mill external forces that the charm combats?
>>36506572>another replacement tabard.pls no.'>>36506499A martial arts outfit. Sorta like Pic related, there is a better picture out there, but my internet is currently ridiculously terrible so I can't find the damned thing.
>>36506645I don't think anyone remembers but this was drawn like way back in the second thread.
>>36506602Basically, when you get killed in a dramatic confrontation when you were fighting heroically for a good cause, the people who you were protecting and fighting for, and who believe in you, can wish you back to life. You lose one dot of permanent Essence and come back up with half health.It's the cheesy dramatic final episode of every 80's hotblooded action shonen battle anime. It's awesome. It's what Exalted is supposed to be about.
>>36506725And my favourite drawfag ever drew it.(Incidentally he "cashed it in" by being the one who basically decided how Tia was going to be)
>>36506731>>36506647So in the context of your system I can assume we'd lose a permanent mote of essence in the event of our death and this charm going off?
I had this saved as an outfit choice, but I'm not as sold on it as I was when I saved it.
>>36506731Of course, we don't have permanent essence in this system. So I assume we just have to rebuy the charm.
Maka <3 Sol>>36506772>(Incidentally he "cashed it in" by being the one who basically decided how Tia was going to be)Oh wow, fucking great job anon
>>36506772>(Incidentally he "cashed it in" by being the one who basically decided how Tia was going to be)I'm sure everyone agrees, he did a great job.Who was the drawfag?
>>36506722>pls no.What's wrong with the tabard?
>>36506772Maka's original artist drew another pic of her
>>36506781It's not what I was thinking of, because I don't really like effects that destroy Xp or traits that are supposed to be permanent even when it's dramatically appropriate. The way i wrote it, it's "this charm only works once", so yes, you re-buy it, or maybe or get another use of it via a happens-once-in-the-history-of-creation miracle of the UCS.
>>36506786I don't know what thread I'm in or how I got here but your thick elf got me here. I say keep that outfit for whatever you need to do.
>>36506846That edit still makes me giggle.
>>36506796>>36506821SilverMyr, also known as ReiDuran.http://reisartjunk.tumblr.com/by the way I'm going to horribly abuse my powers here and say that any commissions coming from him count double when cashed in, since he's my friend.
This thing someone did out of boredom maybeI like it
>>36506905So we won't wear it for awhile. I still want to have one around to put into outfit rotation.
I still want to get Wings of the Raptor, but design wise I'm kind of in favor of a multiple wing sort of thing
So I have no idea what this quest is about besides seeing the opening thread way back when, but at a guess Maka's a swashbuckling sexy Solar with extremely risque taste in clothes and also people. That about right?
(I've been writing, posting, saving and shuffling images up to now since i got back home with a chocolate pudding sitting in front of me, still uneaten. THIS is how much I love you.)(You probably don't care but it was a way to tell you that now i'm going to enjoy my pudding and browse the web a bit and take care of other stuff. I'll still be around but it might take longer for me to reply.)>>36506994nail on the head.
>>36506994I wouldn't call her swashbuckling per say, but that's mostly right
>>36506994And fuck I forgot this trip was on from a different thread.
>>36506994>swashbucklingMore of a Martial Artist than a swashbuckler. And as a Zenith you can't forget to mention the Social stuff, but you're pretty close.
Can't forget this fateful moment
>>36506994The only weapons she uses are funneled and boots that make her brawl harder, so not really a swashbuckler, but she can outsex a lunar.
>>36507014I don't know I picked this up, but I remember thinking this would make a great manse designGiant Maka statue over the city, and with Horizon to Horizon Method?Scary shit
New Map of Tianna, Post Wyld Assault
For a while after Amata proposed to us I spent a bit looking up wedding dresses
>>36507014Not for Maka exactly, but maybe w can get Regis and Millian some clothes when we get back.
I'm saving all these dresses, in any case, so keep them coming.Also just a reminder: while running quests I'm also on IRC, which is a good way to contact me for cashing in art (there's a lot of it still uncashed), and in general you can ask me stuff on my ask.fm.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36506572I wonder how Karas is going to react when he hears that his sister was part of a triple digit orgy.
>>36507294So are we waiting for this stuff to get cashed before looking at charms?
>>36507321Thrilled, I'm sure.Oh man, this is the dress we wore on our first date with Irene
>>36507328Nah, it seems pretty set in stone that you're getting Armored in Righteousness Stance, I'd say.
>>36507294Egypt themes tend to look really good for Solars, I think it's all the gold that get's worn
>>36507385Which picture if I can ask, I know a bunch of the Decu ones got done at around the same time, or at least we had them by the time you came back from hiatus, did you ever cash those in?
>>36507422Yep, decu's sketches got turned in XP if i remember correctly.
I'm still waiting for Tia to use Twin-Hero on Maka
>>36507553She can't, it can't be used on others. Thje only thing she could do is make someone take the shape of something in her heart-blood library.
>>36507616>Hopes and Dreams destroyedThat's too bad
>>36507580Does AiRS heh Airs have physical effect?Like does Maka look any different when she's using her soak charm?
>>36507667No, apart for Anima glow.The Anima glow might be made to look like an actual golden armor assembling itself on Maka Saint Seiya style if you want.If you want to pull off that trick for other charms, consistently, or you just like the idea, remember that there's also Phantom-Conjuring Performance a.k.a. The Coolest Charm Ever.
>>36507728>Phantom-Conjuring PerformanceSpeaking of, I had the weirdest dream, where Maka got her tongue cut out and had to use PCP to talk for her
>>36507728That actually gives me a thought for when you mentioned how our anima banner was never really described.Maybe you can just have the anima banner contextually change depending on what charms we're actively using.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36507580Well, I'm going to call activating our soak charm 'putting on airs' now.>>36507728Does her skin become hard to the touch, refusing to deform? Or does it feel exactly like normal flesh until pushed to the point where it might bruise, cut, or tear, at which point it goes no further?
How about something like this for the next clothes? Still sexy, still royal. Still able to flash people while not wearing underwear.
>>36507778>Maka got her tongue cut out and had to use PCPFear and Loathing in Tianna, when?
>>36507790>Still able to flash people while not wearing underwear.What kind of /wst/-level sexiness is going on in this thread?
>>36507790That's good. Definitely my second favorite after this one.
>>36507537Still need a name for those artifacts, I was going to suggest something involving UCS but all I could think of was that MA of his Arms of the Unconquered SunAs you can see I'm not very creative
>>36507855That was originally made as a prayer right? We should learn it.Yet another reason to find that Sidereal.
Hey i read this thread in the archive up to like 37. Can someone explain what were doing now. Just say something like "we killed people and had sex with tia" and ill probably catch up
A thing. Still looking up something else
>>36507880>That was originally made as a prayer right? We should learn it.I definitely want to, it's really thematically appropriate, if XP expensiveI also like Golden Janissary for our mortals.
>>36507892We zoned out on a boat and had sex with Amata.
>>36507789>Does her skin become hard to the touch, refusing to deform? Or does it feel exactly like normal flesh until pushed to the point where it might bruise, cut, or tear, at which point it goes no furtherI haven't thought about that. What do you prefer?Also yes, you might discuss anima and artifact names if you want.
>>36507855Two gauntlets, two boots? How about Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis, and Tertius?
>>36507921Did we get anything from the boat?
>>36507937Whle boat load of loot
>>36507929AiRS should act like the second, while AST acts like the first
>>36507929Were getting artifacts?(new here but know what exalted is)
>>36507937We had a chat with the Unconquered Sun while we zoned out.Also the reason we were just waiting on the boat to begin with is because we're pregnant and regrowing our skin.
>>36507967We've had them, we just haven't named them yet.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36507929>What do you prefer?For a woman? The latter. It may be sexist, but having that high of Appearance on a woman suggests that she's soft, even when she's indestructible, while a man can be as hard as stone and if anything only gain attractiveness.The caveat is that if she's hard, it's less covert - it's Obvious to anyone who touches her. If she's not, then the only sign she's using a charm is her anima flaring; it's not Obvious.Which do you prefer?
>>36507929I prefer the latter honestly, at least for AiRSI imagine the PD would be more like the former
>>36507929Found the outfit. This should be the outfit we always use when training our mortals.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36508059>pantiesAt least the knot is clearly visible and accessible outside of the clothes.
>>36507929The former, its "hardness" afterall. Not completly unmalable, but so that only someone like Tia could make it give.
>>36507929What these two >>36507963 >>36508037 said
>>36507728>Phantom-Conjuring Performance a.k.a. The Coolest Charm Ever.Eh, I kinda think that you really shouldn't need a charm to do cool stuff like that. I mean, if you want to actually use it as an illusion sure, but you shouldn't need a charm to help you look awesome.
>>36507929I know for the anima banner people talked about it being a shield with Gem's heraldry even though I've not idea what that would be, I want it to have something involving Sol though, maybe his four things, the shield, the spear, the horn, and the laurel branch
>>36508138>Eh, I kinda think that you really shouldn't need a charm to do cool stuff like that. I mean, if you want to actually use it as an illusion sure, but you shouldn't need a charm to help you look awesome.Well, you're still awesome without that, but you use that if you want to really go the whole nine thousand miles or whatever.
>>36508209>I know for the anima banner people talked about it being a shield with Gem's heraldry even though I've not idea what that would beHonestly, I don't know either. I remember someone describing an idea but i forgot both the thread and what he said.
>>36508229I more meant that I think you shouldn't have to buy Phantom-Conjuring Performance to have your anima do awesome shape-shifting things, that should really be the default. I just don't think that "pay xp to look cooler" is a good system design decision.>>36508258I think either a slit-house of the southern dragon kings (sorta like how some houses have a lion rampant or what have you) or coins and crossed swors.
>>36508258Might just be best to wait for something big, dramatic, and momentous.I actually had the idea of making it the sunlit skyline of Gem, with the Palace at the center
Noob question-what artifacts do we have?Also why are we deciding on clothes?
>>36508209I think someone mentioned putting it on a heart-shaped aegis,because Maka is love, held aloft by four arms
>>36508397Oooo I like that idea
>>36506731Personally, I think it should also force a moral check to anyone enemy of the solar who sees it, since what they just did is supposed to be completely impossible, and this loophole to the "no coming back from the dead, ever" rule probably hasn't actually been used since the Primordial war. Which should also scare the crap out of anyone who knows that little fact.
>>36508375We have a set of Smashfists and a set of God-kicking boots.Because our outfits keep getting blown up and we like to be pretty.
>>36508375A set of smashfists-and-combat-boots made from Orichalcum, crafted by Valeriana from the bits and pieces of a shattered sword that (Maka doesn't know, but we do) belonged to Maka's previous incarnation.And Valeriana is also making some slothes because Maka has the bad habit of destroying them. She can make them really fast with magic and also make them nearly-indestructible, and she's going overboard and making a bunch.>>36508397I like that.
>>36508397Yeah that's what it wasActually I think someone posted a character sheet too, I think I have it somwhere
>>36508459I found one, I'm not sure if it's the one that was posted at the time though
>>36508421Cool since were basically a black succubus i put this
>>36508542I think our temperance would be a 2 anon, we've been pretty good about reining in the overindulgences and we haven't bullshit people in our dealings.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36508258Oh, that was me who described it. If I remember right, it was something like a golden shield emblazoned with a massive blue gem being held aloft by two white bulls as a crown of white-hot fire blazed above it. I just grabbed all of the symbols of the Dawn caste, arranged as a heraldic shield, and slapped a gem on it.
>>36508570>we've been pretty good about reining in the overindulgencesHahahahahahaNah. Temp 1 fits it very well.
>>36508443My exalted fantasy has always been a black zenith with those EXACT items.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36508564Lol forgot to roll
>>36508542The intimacies seem wrong though, if Samiel is on it, Pyre should definitly be there too.
>>36508623There is nothing going on, you don't need to roll. We're just talking
>>36508667Ok what color are our smashfist and godkicking boots?I thinl hey should be gold and white with the symbol of gem on them.
>>36508700They are gold. They are made from Orichalcum
>>36508700Since they are made out of pure orichalcum, which is basically like gold that radiates sunlight, white and gold is pretty much what you get.Don't know if she knew the symbol of gem though.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36508620That was a typo. I meant Zenith. Zeniths have imagery tied to hammers, bulls, blue, and the element, direction, and season of Earth. Aside from that, rulership, toughness, and sanctity are their area of expertise.So, white bulls (bulls) holding aloft a shield (tough) bearing a blue (blue) gemstone (earth) above which blazes a crown (rulership) blazing as a halo of white-hot fire (sanctity).All you need is a hammer mixed in somewhere and you have yourself a full royal/Zenith regalia.
http://i.imgur.com/SPqDz4I.pngMaybe something like this.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36508861Shit, son, you better go redeem that on IRC.Also, it's a little too strippery for me. You can have revealing and sexy without it looking like that.
>>36508861>http://i.imgur.com/SPqDz4I.pngYes. Yes.All my wand and yes.
>>36508861I a perfectly fine with this and have to endorse it.That better be transparent.
>>36508921If it isn't shiny or oily, it's transparent, I promise.
>>36508861I like it. It's not my favorite, but it should definetly be part of the wardrobe Val and Irene are making
Is there still charms that we can buy right now or do we need more points?
>>36508861I'd rather have a long, form-fitting dress tailored like pic related.Maybe of a thinner material, so nipples and general lack of underwear are obvious.I'm just more in the mood for something regal than something which looks like lingerie. Or at least regal lingerie.Nice drawing, though.
>>36508932You're a good man.
>>36508861Very nice, very attractive, and very lovelyI still like the other clothes better though
>>36508954We're basically out of points for now. It costs 8 for a Zenith charm, 10 for a non-Zenith charm.
>>36508960>I'm just more in the mood for something regal than something which looks like lingerie. Or at least regal lingerie.As much as I love he pic, I pretty much agree with this
>>36508960100% thisYou don't need to show maximum skin to look utterly sensual and erotic.
>>36508960Didn't that chick from this pic had a dick?
>>36508861Lot of art today
>>36508960Yes, we definitely need more outfits that reflect us as a sexy queen rather than just sexy.
>>36508996Everyone in ARKH project had a dick.
>>36508960Val and Irene are making us a whole new wardrobe, there isn't any reason we can't have both
>>36508996I SURE HOPE SO.
>>36509022We might get lucky anon, she could be our Night Caste.
>>36509045Nah, our Night Caste is going to be our little sister, with pumped up super-speed Athletics, Dodge, Awareness, and fighting skills. She's going to be the goddamn flash, rather than some kind of stupid ninja.
>>36508861Are those just nipple pasties?
>>36506731>It's the cheesy dramatic final episode of every 80's hotblooded action shonen battle anime.Shouldn't the solar also activate Glory to the Most High at the same time then?
>>36509081Speaking of super speed, that's one of the charms we should get along with spider-foot style
>>36509208I don't think the speed charm or spider foot style will be coming any time soon with those swank zenith 5 charms on the board.We're gonna be chomping at the bit for that PD charm and horizon to horizon is a monster social charm.
>>36509291Oh yeah, I bet.I'm going to voting for those super cool charms too
Something more like this, then?
>>36509291>>36509312We should up our Eclipse at least once, so we can Learn Old Realm
>>36509346I wouldn't mind doing it at least once
>>36509331That is also good, I want both of those outfits in the wardrobe we're getting.
>>36509331Nah man, first one was more than perfect.
>>36509331>a second entire pictureHoly shit, anon, I thought you'd just alter the first one. You're a good man.Anyway, I guess? With the stance, angle, and sketchy hair, it's hard to see exactly what the outfit is. It's mostly just cleavage and face.Make sure you send BOTH pictures to EF, he'll probably give credit for each.
>>36509331Super good, super good, super good
>>36509331Any chance we could get Maka in this >>36507844 outfit?
>>36509368>It's mostly just cleavage and face.Those are two of Maka's best features.Of course, at Social 4, almost everything is one of Maka's best features.
>>36509331Eh, I guess we could have that too, but I still perfer >>36508861
>>36509409what do we get, what do we get?
>>36509368I am, don't worry!
>>36509346I'm absolutely down with learning Old Realm, the question is will we need a tutor or would we just remember it.
Maybe something like this?
>>36509452We could probably get away with learning it from our shard's memories
>>36509452We'll almost certainly just remember it upon increasing Eclipse. And we'll probably get access to a few mass-social charms in Eclipse as well - things that Mikahil might not have, since he seems more focused on business, espionage, and travel. Things that would synergize with our existing shit.
>>36509452It occurs to me that between the art and the co left over from carm buying, we might have enough to up our Eclipse already. Though that is wholly dependent upon people cashing in their art for co.
>>36509493>their art for co.For xp I mean. Stupid tiny phone keyboard.
Damn, we did not take Adamant Skin.We really should have taken that one first, for our first perfect defense, to ensure survival. Too bad our essence pool is so small. We need to make it larger, way larger.I think the next sequence of charms that we have to absolutely buy are these:>Adamant Skin Technique>Sun-King Radiance >Horizon-to-Horizon Performance Method Adamant for the PD, Sun-King Radiance to keep everyone minds safe from enemy social fuAnd Horizon to Horizon so we can get everyone loyal to us on Tiana in short time so we can have even our mortal citizens of the lowest rank protected via a combo of SunKing Radiance and Glorious Propaganda. In the immediate concerns however Adamant Skin gets us out of super heavy attacks and SunKing Radiance boosts everyone who was honest about joining up with us to at least our level of social defenses, and that is something we are pretty decent in.Then we need to get Horizon to Horizon so we can have so Nation level charm not only battlefield level ones and it needs time to work so the faster we get it the better.And once we have become thee rock of our group with those three and budding nation grab Sea Wolf and Merchant Wisdom ASAP so we can function as the unmovable Admiral and Merchant.Why? Because if Tianna is truly a Land Based power in a archipelago going Pirate Queen Maka has us made as one of the primary military forces in the Archipelago. And with Horizon to Horizon and some clever placement we can solidify and consolidate said force into something permanent, coupled with Merchant Wisdom so we can back up Mikhail on funding it - he has sometimes business to do so we have to be able to run it at least financially, armies run on pay after all, plus Sea Wolf so we are a decent Fleet Officer.Presto we are now able to use said Pirate Queen Maka fleet and Tianna Coalition Land Army as the backbone of a Archipelago level Federation.
>>36509493well anon even if we had enough xp from art for eclipse.....We'd ignore it to get more zenith charms.specifically that perfect defense. And maybe others.Mostly because we probably won't need to know Old Realm when we're mixing it up with the abyssals.honestly I don't see us getting anything but zenith charms until a desperate need shows up or we run out of the cool ones.
>>36509493Exaltedfag agreed to have the next thread have a commemorative city wide festival orgy.I kid, I kid.
>>36509508well remember anon that damage is capped at 3 in EF's system.With the supersoak charm even the biggest of hits will only do 1 point of damage to us.This also makes us utterly immune to mooks, even exalted led mooks, for the entire scene.
>>36509508cont.All this should give us, should we pull it off, the strategic level power so we can stalemate the Deathknights in the West and Realm Incursions, and not only on a personal adventurere level, at wich we are somewhat decent even if we pushed ourselves a bit too far and had to split the party in the last martial adventure, and thus got ganked, and then ganked again as we leaped immediately into the fray, barely standing up in hp and Essence.With those five charms on the buy order as a plan, if we dont get distracted by new shinies and keep smart decisions we should be able if injured to almost low health pull a Adamant and retreat from exalted level combatants and then take a section of or all the forces be the Land or sea based and lead contingents of them., so we are not knocked out of the fight and can still support people in it.I personally find the plan i just hatched after two days without sleep and on the sadness of missing out another Exalted Qeust Thread to be quite nice and something we should at least attempt to pull off.
>>36509464Or like this?
>>36509555It makes us immune to literally anyone who's not stacking both a charm-based damage booster and a weapon-based damage boost onto the same attack.Even most exalts don't have a snowball's chance in hell of doing more than hitting us once or twice before they run out of essence/weapon uses.From now on, all we really have to worry about is being ganged up on by multiple combat-specced exalts equipped with artifact weapons. It really is that good.For context, it would cost us 1 Essence to activate Ten Ox Meditation for +1 damage and one use of our +1 Damage gauntlets to deal even a single point of damage to ourselves. We'd run out of gauntlet uses before we managed to incapacitate us.2 Soak is HUGE.
>>36509520We should get the one that let us know when someone lie, though.
>>36509508>>36509590EF's system has AST very low on my list of priorities. I'd ALMOST say it's superfluous.
>>36509368Maybe this'll be more clear. Basically like B. Jenet, with a much more plunging neckline.
>>36509555Yes it is, but multiple attacks from different vectors can still be focused on us, so that they overcome our nice overcharged soak charm.four fighters that can dish out 3 damage a turn each can take us out in two turns if they can manage to focus fire. for 1 essence Adamant Skin gets us the get out of Jail card for such a situation since it makes such focus fire infective for two turns, enough so that our team can get in some damage in if they keep at it or they disperse their focus fire or shift it from us to someone else.
>>36509669Okay, yeah, I really like that. Show a faint outline of her nipples and crotch to emphasize how thin the material is and I'm 100% sold.
>>36509680That would be four pure combat exalts that are focusing on us to the exclusion of all else anon.In that situation you can bet your ass that Tia or Karas would be going apeshit on those enemies in our defense.Any exalt who was socially inclined wouldn't have a chance of harming us and mortals, no matter how well led, could never hurt us.
>>36509701Yeah, I was thinking super-thin material. Maybe a bit translucent in the right light.
>>36509669Hmm...what >>36509701 said. Maka used to flash people all the time, need to keep the tradition going.
>>36509669That's amazing anon
>>36509701>>36509669To add to this, maybe turn the gloves and boots into her glove/boots artifact weapons? I don't expect we'll be taking those off practically ever again.
>>36509680In addition to this >>36509733, you need to think about all the other stuff we still need to get and ask "is AST more useful that that?"The other new Zenith CharmsThe various Night charms to increase our mobilityEclipse 3 for Old RealmThe Twilight Charms that let us see and attack spiritsAST is fun, but until we start facing multiple people that can hit for 3 damage consistently, it's not the best way to spend our XP
>>36509680>four fighters that can dish out 3 damage a turn each can take us out in two turns if they can manage to focus fireI hope you realize that what you're discribing is an extreme case, since it involves four other Exalted with artifact weapons burning half their collective essence on us alone.
>>36509848All it takes one Wild Hunt
>>36509862Alright then, let's make sure we don't try and solo any of those.
I'm leaving now, gonna catch some sleep. See you next time.
>>36509935Bye bye EF, it's been fun
>>36509935Have a good night EF.
>>36509880Something that worries me is actually how expensive a single fight is now, just our soak and SHS cost us half our essence pool. Two fights, two scenes and we're out of motes, less if we end up using ten ox or need anything else in between
>>36509848>>36509824>>36509787Indeed the example I made for it was extreme, but considering that in a dragged fight we will get down to health levels of 2 or 1 as shown in these last threads, AST is worth it imho, since with 1 essence we get w turns invulnerability.And why is this so important? Because basically we are the lynchpin this whole operation hangs on. We are the one who has united the Island of Tianna, and we are the social and political force that can propel it to higher levels. Take Maka out and it all devolves to a almost status quo level.AST is a 1 essence cost insurance policy.and Insurance policy in a Kingmaker or Game of Thrones type situation is always worth its price in gold.
>>36510044Well worth it. I'd rather pay in essence than in health.And hey, if push comes to shove, we can probably afford to just spend one essence on the lesser version of airs and not use SHS at all if we're just fighting a reasonable number of mooks, rather than anything more dangerous than that. And against unreasonable numbers of mooks, we can probably just get 2 Soak instead of needed SHS.We only need all three on fights were we both want our best defense and offense up at once.
>>36510044We can still activate IKB as-is even after gaining AiRS, 1 essence for 1 soak. It would be pretty stupid for upgrading a charm to suddenly make us WORSE at controlling it.
Post more pictures.
>>36511289Too much clothes, man.
>>36511242I've been thinking this would be a good Lunar outfit.
>>36511242We could probably use a good combat outfit like this.
>>36512149...Shit, thought that page from Yamatogawa - Power Play was clean, but nope, dick.http://g.e-hentai.org/s/6e8e2c05f8/590026-231
>>36512237I usually like impractical female armours, but that's too ridiculous, even for me
>>36513104Well then why don't you show me what isn't too ridiculous. Not that I'm trying to coax you into doing it or anything.
