Again, thanks.  The Excellent Strike charm is one that I have already chosen.

I've seen examples of higher powered Exalts for 2e, but there seems to be a lack of examples for building a starting character.

Would Craft: Poisons be worth taking, or are poisons something that are bought?

By the by, I'm looking to make Larceny Jidaya's supernal ability.

Nothing says spy like being able to get in and out of places, and take important things. That said, she's going to have decent Bureacracy, Investigation, and Awareness, some socialize and presence to boot.

In reply to Jidaya Orlon (msg # 24):

Ouch.  I was planning on doing much the same.  Except exchange Stealth for Bureaucracy.

Looks like we are both planning on building characters that can sneak into somewhere to perform a task.  Kaine's tasks are just a little more troublesome.

Pretty sure I'm the bard, what with performance supernal and SVN style. I'll try to stick to that, despite my perpetual urge to make my character do everything.

Im the teacher, i actually am trying to do a flavor modified version of SVN for talking people down. Since he is a true pacifist but i dont want to be pointless in a fight. Basicly he never does decisve attacks with the style. Just withering and flavorful gambits ( Talk someone into dropping weapon disarm, distract them by talking distract.) It hasnt gotten cleared yet though.

I'm sure it will be fine Kaine,

I doubt you are going all in on the criminal mastermind side like I am. I'm grabbing Master Plan Meditation, and then pickpocketing/filching stuff up through Iron Wolves' Grasp. 8 charms in all on Larceny.

My other magics are to ensure I get the most money out of my information, and awareness charms focused on listening so I can eavesdrop better.

Sorry I haven't checked in in a bit.


So to narrow things down from all of the scavenger lands I was thinking we should start forging some links between characters and settle on a particular place to begin.

Ascending Sky is super based in Great Forks however he is set up to be able to travel if need be around the Scavenger lands. He is a man of peacful intent with a desire to never hurt another person. He could be a Nexus on Buisness on whatever errand his master has sent him on.

He could be in Nexus as a representative of his master for buisness or investigating something going on there for him.

My gut says starting in Nexus or Great Forks makes the most sense. Ill be cut off from alot of my merits in Nexus but also cut off from one of my major backstory problems as well.

damn all the new charms are pretty good and evocative...hell archery was so much fun, I almost did consider changing my character charm set just to get these awesome charms.

Guess I'll keep this concept for the next game, of ex3, I manage to get into.

Finally re-read through the sample character in the character creation section.

So, my character, being a funarist, is going to want to respectfully bury those we end up killing, and give their possessions to their rightful heirs, or charity if there are none. Is it going to be a problem for anyone that he isn't cool with looting the bodies. I know that's a big thing in D&D type games, but exalted doesn't typically rely on it.

I've no general problem with not looting the bodies.  That is the most likely way of gaining artifacts, however, as we fight other exalted.

Spending the time to find somebody's heirs, that would be.  We are not exactly on the winning team that most root for.  Until we gain a name for ourselves.

Jidaya doesn't have any issue with not stealing from the unfortunate sods who decide we need to be destroyed. But as a finder and keeper of secrets, some things may be too much for him to resist. Particularly things in ancient tombs and scrolls or books filled with forgotten knowledge or wisdom.
