Grrr... 

IF there's only 5 solars, give Pumpkin my solar slot so she can play her technician.  I'll gladly present a lunar or sidereal as soon as I know where the game is taking place.

Actually, Muse, that really wouldn't help.  Pumpkin is playing a Twilight, and you're playing a Night Caste.  Besides, the Twilight we have is meikle, who I'm guessing from the phrasing is playing the Abyssal or Infernal equivalent of a Twilight.

So, really, Pumpkin could play a Twilight, and we'd have a full Solar circle.

I do hope so. 

Still, just because I brainstormed "aloud" about 2 charecters I might play if this turned into a southern game, and one of them might be Night Caste, hardly means 'my character is a night caste'.

Well, the GM assigned people into castes so we can have a full perfect circle of Solars as center of the story besides the few invindual exalts.

*Clunks head* 

I appreciate the offer Hairy, but that's not it. 

If the game needs me to be a certain caste, I have no problem with that at all.  I certainly have no problem playing night caste. 

All I'm saying is I can't come up with a concept 'til I know where the game is set.

Ah, sorry, I misunderstood.

Location generally isn't that much of a dealbreaker for me. My characters tend to be from places other than where the game starts anyway :)

*chuckles*  No deal breaking.  :)  I just enjoy the idea of not playing the entire game thousands of miles from my character's home.  Each direction has a distinctive culture, fascinating family structures, that kind of thing.  I'd have just as much playing a southern man with 4 wives as I would an eastern bachelor who had sired a child for two of his favorite lovers and was teaching swordsmanship to his nephews.

Then pick home place between Nexus (river province) and South? Or perhaps come from hybrid family with southern woman and eastern man :).

Why? 

It shouldn't be too long before Alex decides where he wants to set the game, and then I can make a character that fits in just fine.  :)  (I'll show all you foreigners around.  :P  )

The main problem about setting the game is that there's no clear consensus.  I can make an executive decision if people are okay with that.

Aye, put where you as ST like to weave our story.

Anyways Alex; are Merits and Flaws allowed? I thinked get legendary Appearance and Enchanced Features. Also would as traitor dynast a Wanted 3-5 be suitable flaw? Also thinked Vice (common) towards carnal activities with anyone with Appearance score 3.

Yeah, it is roll of 5 or 7 with d10 to see does I get something to distract me in each and every storyline; bountyhunters, assassins, mercenaries or freaking ninjas in my bedroom. Lots of fun for ST to abuse it :P.

I can't even remember if there are merits and flaws in 2nd ed, which is the edition I know the best.

I'll wait a little bit before moving by executive fiat.  If you want to know what I'm thinking if I move in that direction, I can answer in a PM.

Well, in Ed's Toolkit which is 2th edition char generator program has merits and flaws. It's possibly from a splatbook or something (besides player's guide to Exalted in 1st edition but some merits/flaws have been moved from there and some edited even).

I can provide full details of the merits but general gist is that I aim for Appearance 9 for seduction purposes (7 for normal) and -5 MDV for folks with Appearance 4 or less resist my seduction attempts (and can seduce people not suitable sexual preferance with no penalty and same to those who have higher appearance than me). All these without charm use.

Fair 'nough.  It sounds like Zaer's main skills will be summoning demons and gettin' some.  Maybe he can summon a demon to play Barry White for him.  *Chuckles*

Rofl, it could be put to those two things :). But also my sorcerer will pack her own punch in fight; Using Glorious Birthright Font I can add my Breeding+1 to any physical elemental attack (like Elemental Bolt). Then combine Elemental Bolt with Archery charm which allows me fire off elemental bolts as magical flurry (number egual to my essence) in form of a combo called 'Elemental Barrage'.

Now fun part; I can double my dmg with elemental bolt with Elemental Lens which is connected to my Wings of the Raptor (jade). As you can add elemental lens for free for artifact 4 or higher item.

So, basic dmg is 6L when measuring with my stamina which is limit to the dmg. Then add in the fact I do +4L dmg with fire elemental bolts. So 10L base dmg. Add in Glorious Birthright Font for 16L dmg. Then elemental lens for 32L dmg with fire elemental bolt. Now all extra successes beyond done with the hit (attack cannot be parried but can be dodged) and I can reflexively use either lore or archery excelency boost up my chance to hit with elemental bolt. When using my combo your facing three +32L fire elemental bolts coming towards your face. If fire element immunity is a issue, I just need purchase elemental bolt charm 1-2 more times to get Wood and Air versions (but those doing less dmg) :P.

Fun part; I may spend 0m to use normal elemental bolt attack and do it's base 32L dmg. So can spam it so long Glorious Birthright Font is active and it has 3m cost and duration indefinate.

Super fun; if I get other dragon-bloods with same charms and artifacts to work with me in cooperation we could launch over +100L elemental bolt to single target.

Can we use you as the artillery?

What happens if we put you in a warstrider?

I do not know, I do not know anything about warstriders but if warstrider magnifies the elemental bolt then dmg is usually doubled I guess. As all success beyond hit are doubled in as dmg thanks elemental lens. But arttilery is the word what I would like use when descripe my sorcerer in combat ;). She uses demons and elementals as meatshields vs attacks on her. Also I saw some archery charm allows me parry attacks with my elemental bolt....one charm even allow deflect it back to attacker and target zero DV (as it is unexpected attack).

If Pumpkin Seeds isn't going to be able to play her technician character because I wanted the twilight position, she can probably just have my spot.

So, wait, someone was complaining about DB weakness?

Anyway, gonna have to reconsider things; I can't compete with the system mastery that lets one guy launch +100L attacks with impunity.
