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.

Re: Exalted 2.5
Very much still looking.

Concepts I have to submit are:
Rixthar--Defiler from the Unsung Heroes genre, that believes the exalted's heroism ends when they took what was never rightfully their own, and stole from the true masters. A Fascist who has a perverted sense of right and wrong, but whom against his urge has a swollen heart for people's plight. He wishes to make Creation a perfect place; fixated upon his own version of utopia with dystopian themes.

Quan--Eclipse sorcerer that lives in mobile manse, and uses sorcerer's irresistible puppetry and Invocation of the Eyeless Face with Greater Minions of the Eyeless face to interact outside. Requires flaws! As he's paraplegic with beacon of power. Kind and helpful. Gives asylum to renegade exalts within his manse. Initially no more than an observer, communicator and protector, a horde master as well.

Ethan--Twilight that "favors" caste abilities by focusing primarily on occult, lore and craft, including sorcery. Has a group of follower and manse compound that he oversees, but wishes to bring more people, to make town and then city.

Neavie--Dawn battle angel. Requires flaws and merits! An oath to feel no physical pleasure, she in turn gains the high priesthood of the Lookshy Goddess Tienyu. With celestial battle armor, a manse, and a very high rating in all virtues, Neavie has immense humility and courage. She aids Lookshy's efforts, though she be damned by them. One day, she hopes to reconcile the evils of her past self, by atoning through suffering. Inspired by Alita battle angel, and legends of the Crucified.

Jurisanju Meile Seife Voria--Battles on the convention of war. Pupil of a grand sifu, and connected with an illegal power brokerage, he has claws deep in godly crime. A political brute, but Yakuza with terrible friends, some of which he secretly considers his greatest enemies. Content and even proud of warmongering, he oversees the bloodletting of nations to release tensions on Creations with a cleansing battle. He choose a side, and aids them to win...but often accepts fate's turn if his side loses. People are horses, creation the stable, beloved are the people of Creation, like prize winning thoroughbreds. He does not lack empathy, but rather fights it actively, to (futilely) prevent the tenth pattern spider bite; that suffers most the mortal he loves.

Ampthise Vicious--Endings formerly in gold faction as mortal that shunned the faction to join Righteous Tsunami in the West. Background of backing in the West, ally of Righteous Tsunami and possessing little salary, but a dual manse that connects a part in the west with Yu Shan, through two Home's Hearth and an Otherworld gate. Vicious agrees with the Bronze Faction, that solars are a threat; after all, he's seen the first hand training. It often haunts him. Still, he consider solars to be second circle demons only after a century, and considers the deathlords their ilk and the Lintha a greater threat. With the West having such little support, Vicious staunchly stands to aid Righteous Tsunami against the greater threats to Creation. Vicious seeks to recruit mortal and exalt alike.

I could adapt to an alchemical, abyssal, or dragonblooded; these are just my leading characters.

Re: Exalted 2.5
In reply to V_V (msg # 77):

And to be fair my game didn't actually end. And, I stress the next word in the extreme, maybe need a player or two in the relative near future. That being said I am planning on keeping it small and preferably long term over fast pace. That isn't to say a couple updates a week or more are out of the question just not several a day. And probably the last Exalted game for a good bit that I will be running. And for the most part we are not doing homebrew at this time. Just listing the major caveats here and now so folks who might be interested can think it over.

Re: Exalted 2.5
In reply to Knight_Vassal (msg # 78):

To also be fair:
  1. Your two latest posts had more than 11 months between them.
  2. You did imply you were considering ending your game. Then only later emphasized you weren't ending it.
    • Ending games as a GM are difficult enough, and sadly many GMs opt to just disappear instead, so hence why when a game is under consideration for termination; players often take this to be the default state. I'm glad this isn't the case.


I'm much more interested in long term than fast paced. That said, I think at the pace my playing posts are at, I could use another game (or two) to supplement that.
