I was actually talking about pg 139 of this book:Berit is in the Dragon-Blooded book. She's not a low-born daughter of the Empress. She's like...the actual daughter of the Empress. She just was denied the opportunity to form her own Great House.
Aw. I told you not to tell me.You see this with not just Aqador (he is a Lunar it turns out but doesn't have to be mind)
I just don't think that the Realm book needs to be The Realm's book. This "writing supplements from the perspective of the groups they cover" thing is not necessarily I style I approve of.I also don't see any issue with a book out of character calling Lunars Anathema in context of less the Dragon-Blooded but the Realm itself. To the Realm, well, they are. And for a lot of the rest of the world too. The definition of Anathema includes Solars and Lunars regardless.
Ah, forgot that bit. Yeah, it's a good plot hook to say the least.I was actually talking about pg 139 of this book:
"When the young daughter of one of the Empress's servants barely survived poisoning, rumor spread that the girl was actually the Empress's, begat between the two women by sorcery. The mother fled with her to Eagles' Launch, placing both in Curan's care."
Is it any consolation his spirit shape is a goat and that kind of does a lot to give an idea o fhis persnality when he yells at folks to get the fuck off his lawn?Aw. I told you not to tell me.
I mean, for the Realm Lunars are Anathema and enemy of the state. Note, I have no qualms with the game in general calling Solars and Lunars Anathema since well, again, they are. It's a setting term that especially in cotnext of a holy war over the continent, is also appropriate.I just don't think that the Realm book needs to be The Realm's book. This "writing supplements from the perspective of the groups they cover" thing is not necessarily I style I approve of.
My guess is simply they were probably just designed separately and it turns out to be convergent writing.Ah, Aqadar. I, also, formed a vain hope upon first reading about Fajad that he would just be a seriously-badass sorcerer whom even Celestials bowed to the expertise of, and who Lunars sometimes tried to ally with on the basis that he clearly really dislikes The Realm (to limited success). If it's any consolation, while Lunars does make him a Lunar, everything it says about his actual goals and methods still fits with that view on the character. If you, like me, want to keep Aqadar unExalted, the rest of the character's writeuo will serve you well.
But, seriously, why would you have two back-to-back Northern cities where their most defining feature is a giant pillar which fell from space to kill some troublesome monster?
