    Destroy Christmas (A Holiday One-Shot For Nobilis)

    A year or two ago, I ran a story in a Nobilis game with friends involving Santa Claus. More recently, I wandered into a chat room just as somebody was saying "someone run Nobilis for me" so I did, and pulled out that old story. A few days later, someone asked me if they could use the same...

    [Chuubo] Jenna Moran Patreon content thread

    Somebody suggested that having a single Chuubo megathread was a little intimidating and made it hard to find stuff, so I've created a new thread for discussing Jenna's Patreon and the material produced thereby. So far, in addition to some one-off posts, we've seen three new miraculous Arcs for...

    [Jenna Moran, Kickstarter] Enemies Endure

    The long wait is over, and Jenna has opened up her Kickstarter! Well, technically it's an indiegogo, and it's for her latest novel trilogy, but the principle still holds! I read Enemies Endure in beta, and thought it was pretty awesome. It's also the novel about why Mage: the Ascension never...

    [Exalted: Sidereals] So, the sutras.

    I read somewhere that all of them are reinterpretations/rephrasings of works from elsewhere, like the Sutra for Charcoal March of Spiders is a retelling of Itsy Bitsy Spider, and so on. Has anyone analysed these and put them up on a website somewhere? My googlefu is weak.

    [Nobilis / Invasion] Examples at Each Miracle Level, Starting with Treasure

    I thought that it might be fun to write up the characters of my new book Invasion---at least partially---and use them as examples of how the various miracle levels work. People are sometimes confused about Treasure, so I decided to start there. I’m going to use a relatively low-powered setup: 9...

    Nobilis Elegant Discussion Thread, Part the Ninth

    Once again we have filled up a thousand posts talking about Nobilis. Unlike the previous eight threads, however, in this one I can say that print copies of Nobilis: A Field Guide to the Powers have reached American shores and appeared in stores everywhere.

    Nobilis POD?

    Is this actually going to happen? I missed the preorder and I still cry about it on lonely nights. Call me a luddite but pdfs just don't do it for me. I want to hold a book in my hands, page through it leisurely, smell it's intoxicating aroma, and lovingly stroke its binding. It's the only way I...
