What is Exalted?
An epic high-flying role-playing game about reborn god-heroes in a world that turned on them.
Start here: http://theonyxpath.com/category/worlds/exalted/

>That sounds cool, how can I get into it?
Read the 3e core book (link below). For mechanics of the old edition, play this tutorial: http://mengtzu.github.io/exalted/sakuya.html
. It’ll get you familiar with most of the mechanics.

>Gosh that was fun. How do I find a group?

An illiterate Western shaman of the Twilight Caste who hailed from a moving island populated by Fair Folk and humans who kind of but not exactly served the Fair Folk. Also the only character I've actually gotten to play, in a campaign that died after a couple of sessions.

So how many sorcerers do you think Ysyr has?

>> No.54818878

>>54818812
As we have seen time and time again, people's estimates on the number of sorcerers in Creation vary wildly. This obviously affects what seems like a reasonable number of sorcerers for Ysyr. In other words, there's no correct answer at the moment, and there won't be any kind of consensus either. That said, my version of Ysyr has dozens of sorcerers, but definitely fewer than a hundred.

Oh, an Exalted General again. How nice.

I might be blind. I might be going insane. But I can’t find any information on starting equipment for 3rd edition. How is available equipment dealt with during character generation? Just allow people to get anything they match the Resources rating for? Let people take whatever is logical for their character? Please assist.

A Full Moon lion totem Lunar former prince of some little shit of a city-state that got run over by the Mask of Winters when he rode Juggs through Creation on his way to turn Thorns into what it is today. Exalted for surviving the clusterfuck that was the fight. Made several allusions to Thundercats in the backstory just to see if anyone would get it. They didn't. Sad.

So then he went on to cross Creation looking like a wandering pile of shag carpeting because he wore a bunch of desert-ey clothes piled atop one another to hide his tattoo's after the Silver Pact got ahold of him and explained he'd turn to goo if they didn't scribble big moonsilver cocks all over his face and body (or whatever, not like the tattoos have ever been too uniform or anything in both description and art, ie: it's a joke ye ponces). Eventually he stumbled into an area he liked, mostly because he met a woman he began to fancy. And by "fancy", I mean "bang the bajeezus out of", who also ended up being an Infernal with delusions of grandeur. Since he was an ex-prince due to his country being, well, basically shat on, he figured, "Hey, I've got some of those too!" and promptly went about paling around with said Infernal, who he pretty much loves. Then he nearly died, got stuck in Malfeas for a while, and was rescued by the Infernal, who, shock and awe, loves him back, probably because he can shapechange and lets face it, probably enjoyed the Lunar ability to grow like 50 cocks and all that in the bedroom. I mean, theres a reason Solars kept these guys around, am I right?

Dawn Caste samurai princess from Vaneha who wanted to murder her brother and lay claim to the Imperial Daiklave. The Circle wanted to unite the Hundred Kingdoms under their banner and she was fine with it so long as it meant she got that sword. She eventually became the militant arm of the Circle's expanding empire (declaring herself Demon Lord of the East for intimidation and a complete misunderstanding of what demons are) and grew from a sociopathic murder machine with no sense of right and wrong to a Goddess-to-Her-Men murder machine who struggled to balance her honor with her newfound morality.

Okay so by taking the charms you can choose/create a shaping ritual? How does that work in story?
And you can gain shaping rituals for doing shaping ritual worthy things in story? But doing that without having the charms to initiate you won't initiate you into the Circle?

Is adamantium not a thing in 3e?
Or was that Autochthon only thing?

>> No.54825706

>>54825605
I think that you needed the catalyst of the ritual before you are allowed to actually get the charm, so depending on the gm it could be played out or could be a down time thing. So if you do something ritual worthy like breaking the rules of reality to cut a swallow without having the charm it would do nothing but you would have something primed if you grab the charm.

It never was. Adamant was though, and what it does has depended on the edition. In 1E it was fragile shit that had little use, in 2E it was hard as fuck. 3E...Who knows?

>>54825605
CRAFTING SORCEROUS RELICS
While a character may gain Talisman of Ten Thousand Eyes at character creation by learning one of its shaping rituals, rather than investing dots in the Artifact background, it is still a four-dot artifact, as are any other relics of comparable sorcerous power. A character attempting to craft such a wonder must first design the perfect shape of a relic to channel mystical energies.
This is an Ambition 1 working of the Celestial Circle. If the sorcerous working succeeds, the character may then begin crafting the artifact using the usual rules (p.
241), unlocking one of its shaping rituals for free upon completion. If the working fails, then the design is intrinsically flawed, and the sorcerer may not attempt to recreate it again without some source of inspiration for a new design.

Guys guys, I just had the *coolest* idea for my own special exalt type! See, they're all about freedom and hate fate so they use fate powers just like sidereals, except they use them to attack the loom of fate for freedom instead of forcing people to obey it like jerks and they don't show up in the loom themselves because they're free and can do whatever they want and pattern spiders live inside them and help them do magic! They're so freaking epic!

Thank you so much for taking the time to pick these out from your stash. It's going to be a really big boost to my game that I'll be able to pull out an appropriate pic for major NPCs, and depending on what players come up with for their characters, I might even be able to loan one or two.

I saw a Supernal Performance character called “Resplendent Beats” on OPP forums.

On another matter, I was thinking about Experience. After playing the new Chronicles of Darkness for some time, I really liked the flat experience cost for progressing your character. An Attribute dot costs X xp regardless if it’s your second of fifth dot. Maybe it’s slightly less “realistic” that getting to the pinnacle of human ability costs the same as getting to the human average. But! With flat xp costs people do not optimize their characters to “save xp”, and actually choose Attribute and Ability levels they deem most suitable to their characters fluff wise. You do not “miss out on xp” for spreading thin.

Do you think Exalted would benefit from changing the “current dot x something” system to a flat price? Say, just multiply the costs by 2.5, and have every dot cost that.

>Tell me about your favorite character.

My favourite character was a Zenith priest King who exalted around the age of 16, when her town was attacked by Fae. The town in the east, devoid of help from Volivat, was protected only by a Lunar (a PC), a Dragonblooded (NPC) and a Heroic Mortal named Teicuih who previously was the town's head priestess. Because of her heroism and self-sacrifice he was Exalted into a Zenith by Sol Invictus.

She rallied with her friends and sliced Raksha's bodyguards into very tiny little pieces, all the while only suffering minor wounds. After the attack, she visited the nearby tribes the Lunar had been organising, mustering more Dragonblooded NPCs to help as well as meeting the rest of the party, a Night caste Solar and a Lunar Sorcerer. With a thousand good men and her exalted coiterie, Teicuih the Ray Breaking through the Clouds counterattacked the Fae and alongside Lowireen (the Lunar who had showed up to protect the town from the Fae when she exalted) turned the Raksha into fine green-darkblue paste.

From left to right: my Zenith, Lunar warrior, Night Caste and Lunar Sorceress.

We went on a very bloody rampage the few following months, completely obliterating the Wyld area that was near our homeland, slaughtering goblins and generally being very purge-happy. Other notable things we did after some cleaning up in the vicinity was kicking The Lover Clad in the Raiment of Tears in the ovaries by destroying an artifact she was after and replacing it with a home-made holy grenade that our local Twilight Caste (NPC) had made... she was very thrilled by explosions, sort of like Megumin. Except she had tits and ass that just wouldn't quit. Another thing we did was to purge Rathess of the Leech gods, that scattered and apparently went on to bother some Lunars near the Lair of Ma-ha-Suchi. We rebuilt the city shortly after.

[From left to right my favourite NPCs: fire DB who was also a cheerful murderer, Twilight Caste explosion maniac, Dawn Caste "I will fist you to Malfeas", Eclipse Caste "we can work this out", Alchemical Exalted "A violent approach would be best"]

So after retaking Rathess and rebuilding it a little, we coerce Volivat to joining our alliance while we plan another purge of Fae. Before we can do that, however, we are visited by representatives of Champoor. Since we don't like their tone of "Surrender now and we will spare your lives" we kill them and then nuke the city with a bomb that Megu-Twilight had found and activated. The bomb destroyed Champoor completely and made it Wyld land. So, now with a target to strike, we went and purged what once was Champoor free of Fae and made an outpost there, too. With them out of the picture, unfortunately we couldn't protect Rahess from the Realm forces that had been mobilized: Anathema are not supposed to have artifacts of the first age, you see?

So we got back in time to witness the burning of our city, which triggered our complete and total annihilation of the force that had been sent to deal with us.

It depends on the ability. Melee can add up to (Essence) more but it's very unreliable and expensive. Presence can add up to 3 more but it's dependent on your opponent boosting a lot. Craft gets dice out the ass so don't get craft.

There's no reliable way in 3e to get more than your alloted 21 dice.

2e Thaumaturgy is 3e Sorcery (but strong), and 2e Sorcery is 3e Thaumaturgy (but useless).

2e Thaumaturgy is the science of Essence and Creation. How things work together, how essence can be manipulated to create small scale wonders. This is 3e Sorcery, but remove 'small scale'.

2e Sorcery are rote rituals no-one really understand, seemingly only working because they work, hermetic and esoteric. This is 3e Thaumaturgy, but make those rituals absolutely useless to anyone.
