comment Relative strengths/weaknesses of Undead and Fair Folk
@SevenSidedDie Well, a game I'm a part of might end up with a big "world war" between those three factions (undead/fae/demons). In order to plan our next moves, we are trying to figure out if a side is immune/resistant/weak to another side's powers or not. For example, as a player, I have heard things such as "Fae are good allies if you need to fight undead", but I have also heard "Fae are especially weak against undead", with no explanation on one side or another. So I'm trying to get a more definite, backed up, and clear answer on that matter

Also it's not about just finding the entries, Exalted has a lot of weird interaction things (for example Sidereals charms, and who they can apply to and why) that requires more of a global knowledge of how the setting and its magic work.

@gatherer818 Well, originally it was a question such as "what are the advantages/disadvantages of undead/demons/fae against each others", which was closed for being too broad, with the advice of making it three separate questions. So...

"Confusing Stress with hit points" I would argue that Stress IS Hit Points - but most people confuse Hit Points and damage. Hit Points also are "a measure of your ability to avoid lasting consequences from conflict"; when Luke is surrounded by blaster shots landing at his feet, or bullets are hitting the pole James Bond is hiding behind, they're losing HP - not just being missed, but getting closer from "real" trouble. Anyway, just a small pet peeve, great answer, +1 to you sir.

comment How to make extremely lethal stories in Fate
@Theik I didn't mention having a mechanical difficulty. While there is no hard mechanical rule that I see as being a problem, I have learned that going against the spirit of the game, especially as explicitly described by the game itself, leads to pretty bad results.

Actually I really like this answer, for some reason it feels like Fate to me (character goals, narrative-driven metagaming...). One question though: do you have experience running this kind of game, or something similar?

@Theik sorry about that, it seems I didn't copy the right part of the quote... It is part of a page long discussion on why death isn't encouraged in Fate games, how it kind of goes against the spirit of the game, and how it should be kept for pivotal and extremely important conflicts
