Ok I am going through the things with my character wanting her to be able to seduce people and to turn people's head. What in earth shall I take? What I can find there aren't that many charm that actually does that...

Checked on Lunars as well and they had even less.

I will be a good healer as well...

Mia-chan, may i sugest the Solar charms from the Perform or Pressence tree? 

Husband Seducing Demon Dance is one of my favorites.  :) 

By the way, if this intrests you, I have another that might as well, and we have another guy joining up if he gets out of Cued Introdductions.

Performance and Presence charm trees, as already stated.  Some of the investigation ones could also prove useful. Probably not the Socialize ones, as they're more group focused.

I will be a good healer as well...

The Medicine tree, obviously. Body Mending Meditation from the Resistance tree is always a good one to have, though its self healing.

High appearance.  You want atleast appearance 5 if you're going for 'Could shame the ladies of the Dynastic courts'.  Presence is the ability used for seduction, iirc, so a Presence Excellency covers that, as well.

There are no insta-heal charms for Exalted.  The closest you can get to insta-heal is by summoning up Demons and Elementals to Heal, or using an old Lunars 1e charm, which was pretty much the only good thing from that book.

Mind, compared to normal healing times, Solars can force others and themselves to heal insanely quickly with a charm in a combo, but it's still going to take a day of in-game time.

Lunars are actually better suited to getting higher appearance, as they have charms that can increase all, yes, all physical attributes.  Appearance 5 is the human maximum, and Lunars can spend essence to get up to Appearance 10.

  As far as books go as long as it is an official Exalted sourcebook then you can use it, but I will most likely have to ask you to detail the info if it is a book I don't have. Currently i have the following books. I will allow a couple of Lunar Exalts, but would like most of you to be Solar.

Core Rulebook
Sorcery I-IV
Compass of Terrestrial Directions Scavenger Lands, The West and Blessed Isle
Manual of Exalted Power Sidereal, Lunar and Dragon Blooded
Scroll of Esoteric Wisdom I:Scroll of the Monk
Scroll of the Monk: Imperfect Lotus
Manacle & Coin
5 Tombs

I'd like to play as a Lunar then, as many other people before me had the chance to be a Solar. If you do the Solar Bond thing, I'd suggest it be a free background to a certain extent if it's bound to a PC. As the background is obviously made for an NPC Solar/Abyssal.

I got two ideas.

First is an Even Blade stylist/dodger, or a Solar Hero fighter/soak machine.  Gotta pick one...

I'm still up in the air.  Thinking of dusting off an old character of mine..she's a Dawn caste but is more of a calvary commander/archer.  She has a bone to pick with the Mask of Winters though so she might fit in nicely.

To actually seduce or influence people do I have to have high Manipulation score? Or is Appearance and Charisma enough?

Manipulation or Appearance. Depends on measure of your seduction. Charisma would be used to win someone over without any ulterior motives.

So far as I understand the stats.

Appearance is more like self-confidence and a first impression sort of thing.  Using Apperance and say Presence would be to catch someone's attention and hold that attention.  Appearance is probably more quick and primal, tapping more into lust than anything else.

Manipulation is twisting someone around your fingers most likely.  You learn to lie and disguise your motives, make them think that your wishes are their own etc. etc. 

Charisma is making someone geniunely like you.  Through conversation, actions and such they really like the person that you present and want to be around you.

Darn :) which means I have to choose. Well Appearance will be maximized anyway, then I will have to see if I choose the Charisma path or Manipulation.

Well if you are going for the stereotypical seductress, I'd focus on Manipulation over Charisma.  Charisma is more like the faerie princess who everyone in the kingdom adores.

Appearance will be my dump-stat. Same for all the other Socials. Yay!

*rummages around for a specific charachter and finds him*  Oh.  Oh yes.  I think it's time to see if Clockwork Shards can come out to play.  Perverse curmudgeon of a Twilight, I think I'll temper down the bastard part of his makeup and try and accentuate the more fun aspects of the charachter.

I'd be interested in trying out exalted I have a copy of the rules. Admittedly I've yet to try them out. But if there is still room in the game I'd be interested in giving it a whirl.

 You can start sending me characters via PM if you want, but I still have some time to go before I am ready. Some of the rules seem pretty complex, but once i get my feet wet it should be okay. I usualyl learn better by doing rather than reading.

@Methos - I wasn't going to take anymore players, but I will let you join in to give me an even ten. I am not going to go higher than that. Anything above 8 starts to bof things down, but I can roll with ten.

Bear with me for a few, making an Exalted character from scratch isn't easy, at least for me.
