Re: Exalted 2.5
  Just an update here so you guys know. I will likely be starting a new very small scale(3-5 players max) "Vanilla" Exalt game after the First of the year.

    Options as I see them

 --Gunstar Autobot (Yeah over done at this point, but the whole Galactica vibe always gets me hooked.)

 -- Standard Walk the Earth(Basic 2nd Age game hit all the high notes kill the Empress save the world from the Big Bad you know the drill)

 -- Fall of the First Age Game (Basically set about 6 months before the Calibration Massacre that ended the High First Age. You make the choices, but metagaming on the Calibration Banquet itself is punished pretty severely[i.e. Showing up in a modified Warstrider and going full on berserk on the hit teams.])

 -- Or a more Directional based Vanilla version

Re: Exalted 2.5
Never heard of Gunstar bot. So it's underdone IMO.

I'd prefer the standard walk of creation.

The directional based vanilla would be cool too.

I want to be clear, I want to be able to get any backgrounds my BP can afford, and use (at the very least) Oadenol's Codex and WoLA. Lords of creation would also be a must for some artifacts, especially manse creation. White and Black Treastises and Glories the most high, then core, need to be available.

 I've encountered this problem a few times, with GMs saying they didn't know, so I'd like to be clear seven of my eight concepts need those books. The eighth needs a seat of power. So please allow those books if you ad here.

This is for 2.5e as well. Again, there's been a few GMS that missed that. 2.5, not 2e or 3e. Aspregis is game for 3e, which is fine, but that shouldn't be ad for here. :)

Re: Exalted 2.5
In reply to V_V (msg # 52):

Scroll of Heroes and maybe Graceful Wicked Masques are my only no go books. Both are pretty broken IMO. Masques only because of the power gaming involved outside of the Wyld. Which makes me think of another concept but not for this game. Codex and Wonders are great books. Lords is high Essence for the most part, but it could get there. I consider most of Black and white to be gospel and the same could be said of Glories. And none of core is permissible at all ever sorry it is just to freaking good. Will be setting up the game soonish and will get a link, but won't be starting it until after the first of the year possibly not til middle of the month.

I'd much rather have a late than never/rushed game. Thanks!

Re: Exalted 2.5
After researching for my own game, I'm getting more excited about playing. If anyone could run a high action, deep dialogue, low mystery setting of creation, I would love to play!

Re: Exalted 2.5
Very excited to PLAY!

See msgs #30 and #37.


Spoiler for tangent on "why not quote or copy+paste?": (Highlight or hover over the text to view)
I've had recent modding problems (for not observing rules well) so I'm erring on quoting within reason. I think if you wouldn't mind looking at those two post and this, it'll save me from getting in trouble, at the expense of having to read through them yourself.



I only want to add, that I would prefer the rule 0 and the process of creating custom charms be used very sparingly. Yes, rule 0 and new charm creation are in the rules; but these implicit articles themselves are not printed. I know it's unpopular, but I just want to play exalted with rules, charms, artifacts, hearthstone, abilities, and just mechanics; printed. Not extrapolated. Some yes, some is of course fine. I'd prefer it kept to an absolute minimum.

I've had bad reception with that in K_V's game, and it is prompting me to add this.

Re: Exalted 2.5
I guess that makes me Brutis... ;)

I'd like to play a Dawn with combat focus; or an Endings with combat focus. It has been almost half a decade since I've had a HK action scene.

I do, however, want it to cater to the same concepts as prefaced; I would just build my character for a likely conflict.

Edit: I'll throw out another idea; playing an Alchemical.

Re: Exalted 2.5
Both games are on pause for the time being. I'd like a third that can remain comfortably paced, and none too brisk.

I'd like to play a Dawn with combat focus, or a Dragonblooded with about double the starting charms and background dots. For the Dragonblooded, I'm flexible on aspect, but would prefer wood or water, and then air. I like all three pretty darn well. If I play a Fire or Earth, I won't be upset, but will probably branch out to the favored abilities more than aspect. I like Fire and Earth enough that I won't neglect their aspect abilities entirely, or even to the point of minimalism; they'll just be secondary.

Re: Exalted 2.5
For sake of having a fellow interest, I'd split the difference (if we find a GM!) and whatever you and them come up with (of those three) I'd go with. :) For reference, if it's alchemicals and I have the option to play a non-alchemical (such as in Creation) I'd be the exalt type of your alchemical harmony. So DB for Jade. If preferred, I could be an alchemical; I'd do a type you're not, and try to pick something along the combat combat and mental score. I LIKE the social charms, but I'd pick from them only after others. Abyssal would be fine of any caste, I think. Or I might play an eclipse, if permitted. Infernal, I'd probably go non-scourge. Again though, I might play a DB that is allied with Hell, but not akuma.

I say all this, to show I'm flexible for GM to allow mixing, or all the same splat.

My Dawn would only be a solar centeric game, as I think I'd have less fun with that character with any of those mentioned above.

Re: Exalted 2.5
There could be potential in the intrigues in Mnemon's canonical overtures toward the Underworld in her preparations for opposition to the forces of Hell, although I believe her canonical methodology was limited by the module's adherence to published Deathlords. There are two major shadowlands just off the coast of the Blessed Isle, both of which Mnemon has a history with, which could provide a staging ground for a homebrew Deathlord who'd been driven inward by the Balorian Crusade scouring the Underworld of whatever powerbase they'd originally held. A Deathlord who'd since rebuilt on either Versino (the Heptagram's predecessor institution that became the site of a mysterious massacre where Mnemon was the only survivor) or the Island Manse-Tomb of Peleps Varuna (a contemporary of Mnemon who'd been seduced by a Lunar, who had letters Mnemon would want secure) would be in a good position to act as a point of contact. Mnemon and the Deathlord wouldn't meet directly, of course, but through intermediaries. An Abyssal suited for infiltrating Dynastic society here, a Dragon Blood of aspect atypical to House Mnemon trying to pass below attention there... Funnily enough, the Aspects that V_V would prefer are those best suited for Underworld intrigue.

No clue what the actual plot would be, though. Just a way to bridge Abyssal to Dragonblood that has them on the same side that a prospective ST could use. Hopefully entice someone to run things for a game of at least three people.

Re: Exalted 2.5
I'm not picky about the Exalt type, to be clear, or the game style. If someone has a plan for one of V_V's Solar ideas, I could do a circle member or, if she's alright with it, the Solar's bondmate. If someone has a plan for the Terrestrial idea, I have a concept for every Aspect.
