    My big-boy bosses? Didn't take a single action because they got hypnotic patterned/hold monster'd right off the bat and then rolled nothing but 1s and 2s for saves until they'd died. One of them was rolling at advantage. A pair of 1s. Gah. My dice hate me and love my players. When I was rolling for the friendly NPCs that joined them? 18, 19, 15, etc. For the enemies? 1-5. No need to fudge dice when they legitimately hate you anyway.

    Yes. but the impossible awesomeness of literally conjuring alternate never-come-to-pass versions of the Incarnae, Her Redness and Ligier to fight for you at Essence 3 is probably so impossibly awesome something that no GM would ever allow despite it being a charm in the Essence preview and a section of the fandom that wants to take Exalted seriously would find it over the top and not defending a random podunk region of Creation while playing out tragedies of humanity enough. But then such people dislike and will disallow Getimians anyways on general principle simply because they're not Solars hogging the spotlight, so I'm not really inclined to care or care favorably about what they think.

    * May not start a campaign, fanfic, or anything called "Exalted Done Wrong" to make fun of the fandom by parodying various parts of Creation and taking all the events in its history as irreverently as possible.
    ** The Games of Divinity may not turn out to be Paradox-Billiards-Vostroyan-Roulette-Fourth-Dimensional-Hypercube-Chess-Strip Poker, which of course just turns out to be Yu-Gi-Oh!

    Eh... Not comfortable with that. Barring some very specific exceptions, rape is one of the worst things you can do to someone, but treating it as an inherently unforgivable special super evil as a shorthand for "this is a bad dude" sort of... Trivializes it.

    Not to mention that it means that in those rare exceptions, it becomes harder to judge someone fairly: I've been called a rape apologist for arguing that it's not fair to condemn a character for crimes he committed as a ten-yer-old because he grew up in what was basically a cult and his toxic family told him it was okay.

    Never mind that he stopped doing it when he realized that no, his family was full of crap and he was just hurting people for no good reason, or that he regrets doing it despite the fact that overexposure to his father's Killgrave-esque emotion control powers have rendered him emotionally dead.

    Besides, even ignoring the overuse of "Rape is a Special Kind of Evil," using rape as a shorthand for "this character is evil and deserves a karmic death" is just lazy.

    There are all kinds of horrible things that are just as bad, maybe even worse, that your villain can do to people... You just have to be a little creative...

    To be fair, in my mind it's probably not the study thing in that scenario. It's an element I rarely include, and it's normally about imbalances and abuses of power rather than somebody being moustache twirlingly evil. But abuses of power are something I tend to hope my players take very seriously, up to 'violently dismantle the system' in some genres1.

    It's also something to use to suggest that maybe somebody's going a bit far. Sure somebody who's committed it deserve to have to struggle to rebuild their reputation? Yes. Do they deserve to be dangled over a vat of acid and lowered in at a millimetre per minute? My PC's probably going too far.

But abuses of power are something I tend to hope my players take very seriously, up to 'violently dismantle the system' in some genres1.

    It's also something to use to suggest that maybe somebody's going a bit far. Sure somebody who's committed it deserve to have to struggle to rebuild their reputation? Yes. Do they deserve to be dangled over a vat of acid and lowered in at a millimetre per minute? My PC's probably going too far.

    I mean it probably depends on the character, table, and system(if nothing else Iím sure more than a few games have rules for being resistant/immune to acid).

    Molten metal is also acceptable (or liquid nitrogen if they also have heat resistance, I can come up with a long list if a GM keeps adding immunities). The point is more that it's needlessly excruciating to the extreme, and that if I have a PC that indulges in such actions then my PC is probably a hypocrite even if they have some kind of point.

    Yes, I sometimes expect PCs to be brutal antiheroes. But they're also expected to have some level of mercy.

    Oh huh, I misread that as your PC deserving yo be dipped in acid like that initially. But yeah I get what you mean if the game allows for a shred of basic decency. Not every system is Paranoia or WH40K I guess. Or something like that, pretty sure there are a few more where the default morality for a PC is ďcomplete bastardĒ, but most arenít.
