I currently progressing towards a math degree while living in the North Bay. My first experience gaming was a game of AD&D in middle school. I'm currently in an Exalted game and likely to join a D&D 3.5 game. I've also played Star Wars d6, D&D 3.0, Star Wars Saga Edition, Classic Traveller, Mongoose Traveller, and numerous more minor d20 system games.

comment Alternate Locust Crusades
I think it should also be mentioned that many of the fans didn't have a particularly good view of the locust crusade as detailed in said book, so don't feel to obligated to uphold it's views on the matter.

@Cthos it's not so good against charms like 1 weapon two blows

comment What is Exalted Paranoia Combat?
Good start, but wouldn't the overdrive mechanic introduced in the Dawn Solution make that not that case? I read that it sometimes actually made it worse.

It seems like the obvious answer would be other travelers.

comment How many arrows an archer can carry/bring with him
@Matteo By high level items like bags of holding are likely to be easily available. Other options for carrying arrows are using followers, hirelings, payed commoners, or similar. Note also that I didn't say there weren't cases where tracking arrows was a good idea. Examples for when I'd consider it worthwhile would be anytime you are trying to make your players resource strapped to increase suspense, for instance by killing or removing the source of extra arrows.

comment How many arrows an archer can carry/bring with him
In my experience most D&D characters look ridiculous already, so that shouldn't add that much. Also, by the time they are carrying that many, they are probably using something else, like bags of holding or a mount, to transport them all.

comment How do I create a sense of mystery about magic?
How mysterious is mysterious? Do you want it mysterious for the players? The characters? The setting? Is it's mysteriousness a changeable trait? I think a lot of your work will be done once you define what mysterious, in this context, means for you.

comment Exalted - Sidereal Dice Cap
@JimKiley Yes and no. There first excellency is crap with this, since it's identical to the spirit first excellency; however, since their second can add essence success, it's twice as good as the spirit one. In fact, the second excellency compares reasonably well to solar excellencies once you remember that it can add success regardless of how large the base pool is. Further, their fateful excellency is amazing for larger pools, like those used attacking.
