Interest Check: Exalted Campaign
« on: July 03, 2012, 09:05:03 PM »
Hey guys,

I'd like to get a group together for a full Exalted campaign. This would involve creating character sheets, having rolls, etc etc. Obviously this would require the players to be on at least somewhat often so that we can continue to move the story forward. Honestly I haven't decided which type of game (Abyssal, Solar/Lunar, Dragonblood) that I would like to run and wanted to get the input of anybody who'd like to play. PM me or comment her if you would like to participate.

And now for your viewing pleasure, some Exalted fanart:

Put me down as tentatively interested. I have a few Solars from campaigns that died or never went anywhere.

Exalted is always a good time.  Though I'm never very good at the whole min/max thing.

You won't need to min/max to have fun, this is mostly for the story and what not. If there is an overwhelming desire to not have character sheets I don't mind just going *off book* so to speak.

Great, do you guys have a preference for what type of Exalts you'd like to be?

I don't have much of a preference in type of Exalted.  They all have their pros and cons.

Not yet, I wanted to get everyone's opinion on Exalt type to start with.

We could do a mixed campaign of Solars and Lunars, even maybe a Dragon-blooded if they were willing to forsake the Realm. With Sidereals and Abyssals I would prefer if we did a *all or nothing* game with that Exalt type

I do have an issue with Dragon Blood being with Celestial usually.  I always hear the argument they can be just as strong if given certain circumstances, but I find that the ST spends the story trying to make those circumstances come to life or trying to bring them up to the Celestial level.  So for them, my personal stance, is Dragon Blood should be "all or nothing" as well.

Sure Pumpkin, that's fine with me as well. Unless anybody has any strong feelings otherwise, a Dragon-Blooded game would essentially be a Pro-Realm game.

I'm interested. 

Solar - Lunar - DB - Sidereal, as far as ranked interest goes.

A Solar and Lunar game it is. Do you guys have a preference for actually using sheets and dice, or instead going without and just leaving it to me to decide whether you hit or miss based on what would be good for the story?

Sheets tend to provide a great framework for a character's power level, strengths, weaknesses and focus.  A sheet also allows the player to gain a feeling advancement and a goal to work toward as they collect not only items, but also skills and powers.  I mean its one thing to say, I unleash a fireball.  Its another thing to watch as you spend points going from a flicker to an all out fireball.  At the same time the Whitewolf system opens itself up to alot of min/maxing, restrictions, odd situations and slow downs.  So I'm kind of a sheets on the table, dice out of sight person. 

Also, I'd like to try and bring back a Solar I was using that was more of an inventor and technology type.  I kind of draw inspiration from Final Fantasy type stuff with her if that is alright.  Oddly enough also draw some inspiration from Warhammer 40k.

I can go either way.  I agree with Pumpkin on the benefits of sheets, but I'm of the opinion that I'd rather the mechanics just be behind the scenes and not worry about dice rolls, xp, or anything else.  I'd love to participate in more of a "freeform" Exalted game.

Do you guys want to volunteer to be Solar or Lunar mates of any of the other PCs? If not I can just implement that into the story at some point.

Important question but how porny are we allowed to be? Would playing a temple prostitute zenith be acceptable? I know this is an adult board and exalted as a reputation, but I got rejected from a game for making a topless character before.

I'm fine with it, does anybody else have a problem with it? It is an adult board, so I had assumed that there would be sex in the game. Would anybody prefer otherwise?

My Zenith's build was based on being able to induce orgies.

Always up for an Exalted campaign. A number of ideas I have running around in my head for various concepts, and a few old ones I wouldn't mind bringing back. Is there enough room for one more or are you all filled up?

I think with you 1SAZ that will make 5. Which is a good number for a party in my opinion. Pending we don't stop hearing from some people, I think this will be our group:

1. AK47
2. 1SAZ
3. Roxy
4. Aribeth
5. Pumpkin

I'd like to say before we go any further that I'd like if we could make a bit of progress on at least a every other day basis. Do you guys get on E enough to be able to post once or twice every two days or so?

I'm happy with or without it. Er, the sexy focus that is.

I can pair off with someone for the Solar/Lunar mate routine.

Let me know if I should include the mass, lust-inspiring social charms or take that knack that lets a Lunar go all hermaphrodite. Otherwise I'll just make my usual awful choices.

Haha, go for it Roxy. I'm going to try and play this as realistic as possible so if you convince the Despite of Gem to give you the location of Luthe by sleeping with him, well that's Exalted.

I'll also be playing as maybe some NPC party members who will come and go, so in reality we have 6 people.

Not even, just solar performance charms from core. Although as a result she was totally helpless combat-wise (just dodge charms), and even in the social combat field she was optimized of mass brainwashing of mortals.

I知 not big on sex being part of any theme in role play.  Romance is always fine, flirting characters or sexually charged ones are fine, but I致e always found sex to be more of distraction from good RP.  Sex is good for bringing characters together in those hot, steamy moments that really illustrate their romance.  Such as in Game of Thrones with Khal Drogo and Daernerys (sp?).  The scenes of them having sex really showed the power play between the couple, which was an important aspect for the series. 

In conclusion I guess I am more for the scenes where you just feel that all the tension, all the flirting and all the interest has come together in that great love scenes.  Otherwise I知 kind of a fade-to-black girl or take it off to another thread.

As for time, there are some days after work where I literally can稚 move.  Then there are times when I could just write and write and write.  So I値l try my best to stick to every other day, but I値l also let you know if I知 just running into problems.
