We'd have to agree to disagree. Or I could go over my PDFs and tell you whether I've changed my opinion, if you prefer!It looks to me more like you are looking through rose tinted glasses at 1e and 2e.
Right, and I already admitted it's got some awful pieces. No disconnect there. And yes, 2e was better.Though my overall preference is for 1e, it has plenty of clangers and the art style is all over the map as admitted in the Making of Exalted book.
OK, this guy's style would have been better for another game...
Yeah, that sucks. Again, I never said 2e has uniformly good art, there's some real clankers there as well!
But it's also got orders of magnitude more good art than 3e, too. At least based on the books that I've seen.
I haven't seen a single one in the books I've perused.Likewise, 3e has some pieces that I consider to be excellent.
