Intimacies: In addition to the book requirements- at least four Intimacies, including at least one Defining Intimacy, one Major Intimacy, one positive Intimacy, and one negative Intimacy- I would like a decently fleshed-out character. Four is a bare minimum and depending on your backstory I will probably ask for more.

Houserules:

Merits:

(Unless specified, the houseruled versions of all these Merits are Open.)

Language: At start, only regular Earth languages are available. Due to the sheer volume of languages vs. the standard setting and the coolness of Exalted, each Earth language is two per dot.

Allies: Three dots grants either a young Terrestrial Exalt (E1, probably under 20) or a powerful mortal such as a millionaire, connected socialite, or highly-trained soldier. Five dots may grant a PC-level Terrestrial Exalt or a very powerful mortal such as a CEO, a powerful local politician, or a local crime boss. Celestial Exalted Allies are Restricted due to numbers. All other options are Open.

Danger Sense: The standard Merit becomes one dot, no prereqs. For three dots, prereq Perception or Awareness 3, the character has a preternatural sense of danger and gains one success to detect non-magical traps and ambushes.

Fleet of Foot: Two dots.

Natural Immunity: For the record, this game uses the 2e fluff that Exalted are naturally immune to non-magical disease. As the Merit does not specify non-magical diseases, it's unchanged.

Pain Tolerance: No prerequisite.

Retainers: Two dots grants a mortal ally as stated. Four dots grants either a young Terrestrial Exalt (E1, probably under 20) or a powerful mortal such as a millionaire, connected socialite, or highly-trained soldier who for some reason sees you as their superior. Both levels are Open.

Resources: Depending on area:

Resources 1 is roughly $50k-100k/yr.
2 is roughly $250-500k.
3 is around $5m.
4 is an arbitrarily high level of multimillionaire.
5 is an arbitrary amount of billionaire.

1-3 is Open, 4-5 is Restricted.

Tempered By The Elements: Character also gets one die to Survival rolls while in the specified environment.

Toxin Resistance: No prereqs.
