Here's a thought for your last point - Backing, in one of the three areas you have Contacts in.  Backing is good for a lot more than just money.

I'm a little iffy on the exact differences between Backing and Influence.  Would you mind giving some detail?

Edit: Really, double-checking, isn't Influence the same thing as Reputation?

The key difference between Backing and Influence is rank.  The Exalted corebook clearly states that if you have Backing, then you have rank, and that Influence does not cover rank.  Backing also, if you include the Sidereal bits of it, also lets you temporarily obtain Backgrounds that you don't already have.

Maybe.  Even if Influence is the same as Reputation, you don't have either.  To me, Reputation is about your name being out there, people knowing who you are, getting bonuses to Social-type rolls when people are aware of your Reputation.  Influence is about...well, being able to push people and get them to do stuff for you.  To me, Reputation vs Influence is the same as Charisma vs Manipulation - one is getting people to do stuff because they know you and like you, and the other is because you have some sort of way of compelling them.

Actually do have Influence because I have Class.

If I have Backing and Influence already with the army, though, I probably don't also need a contact in the Army.

Currently looking at Backing 3, Contacts 2 and Reputation 2.

Thank you very much for the help ^_^

Done editing my charsheet, so folks can check it is it okay or have I done math mistakes (also welcome any tips). I noticed that in earlier game I had got some reason +9 extra charms compared to number I had purchased. So had to edit them in to normal XP expenses.

Random question.  Can non-Alchemicals have Beamklaives/Gyroscopic Chakrams?

Sure, why not?

Don't forget Autoklaves too.  Basically chainswords, 139 of Shards.

Shards I don't think I have.  I've got the main Alchem book, and that's it.

Shards is the book Gunstar is in, Reiji. 

Here's what I have of Rose so far 

One more charm and I'll be ready to spend her EXP.

I don't have Gunstar.  What I know about it is what I've garnered from previous interest threats on E that were going to do it - like the one Krule did a while back - as well as filling in the gaps with what I have from my other books.

Are we supposed to spend experience as normal for our type?

If everyone spends BP like they're Solars, I would suspect that having everything spend their XP like they're Solars would be a good idea as well

BP will be used off of the Solar table, however continue to use the normal experience table for your caste type with everything else.

Frankly I wouldn't mind making it all Solar (with the exception of caste specific purchases like Knacks) but I know that several people have already made, or started making their sheets without that info. And I wouldn't want those people to have to backtrack.

It's also really rough for Solars if their big advantage goes away, unless they're also allowed to get stuff like Astrology, shapeshifting or artifacts that completely inure them from shaping attacks.

@Re Z L, no on the Merits and Flaws. You don't have many, so if you want to just put them in as character roleplaying fluff, feel free.

@Muse, I do not know whether the default war strider would be sealed from the vacuum of space. Let's say yes.
