Exalted: Abyssals
« on: October 23, 2008, 04:59:08 PM »
I am looking for an Exalted ST, I know that, that in and of itself is asking for a lot.  But, Iím not interested in playing Lunarís, Sidereal, or Solars.  I want to play an Abyssal, and not just any sort of an Abyssal, a Dusk caste that lives up to the rumorís of how terrifying they are.  The goal of the story would be simple, Iím not particularly interested in destroying creation as a plot for the game, thatís a little to bleak for me, but I would really enjoy a circle marching to war against the Empire bringing to bear all sorts of necromantic nastiness, and violence upon anyone foolish enough to stand in their way

Just noting that I'd love to play if this gets going. Some sort of Midnight oblivion philosopher/preacher type thing.

I imagine you'll probably get a bunch of "would love to play, not run" posts here mind you..

There has to be an ST out there willing to run a real Abyssal campaign...

I wouldn't mind running an Abyssal game, but as I don't have the books that is a bit outside my reach.  Maybe once I get them, read'em and get a handle on GMing in general I'd feel more comfortable.

I dig the abyssals. What we could do is set some non gm things, like who are we and maybe who are our Death Lord/Lady. Maybe we could serve one of the non cannon dark lord. What do you think?

I'd look forward to that Asku, thank you very much.

I've run Abyssals both pen and paper and on RPoL, but I'm afraid I don't think I have time to GM another game at present .. no real strong campaign ideas for Abyssals either. I can probably give a hand with character generation if that would help things along though. I've a complete set of Exalted books.

If ever I get something going, might have to look you up for that Monkey King.

Yeah, not a problem.

My own Abyssals campaign was fun. I ended up with the Abyssal version of The Mystery Men .. not so much evil as overpowered incompetance. You've never seen so many botched rolls in one game  :D

I still have fond memories of the Infernal Badger  :D

I'd like to play but I need to get the books first to know what I'm getting into(2nd edition, I assume?). I usually play DnD and Shadowrun, and occasionally SW.

That said, I LOVE evil fiends.

I'm afraid I have no idea what you just said :)

It may be a stupid question, but I have known one or two people who didn't realise that the likes of Abyssals is an expansion, and that you needed the core book to start with.

just means of course.  For some reason my head comes up with that one phrase in spanish before the english.  Can't even speak spanish all that well, but whatever.

I have access to most of the books, only missing the East and the First Age.

Dreams of the First Age isn't anywhere near essential for a normal campaign. Fun to have, of course, but not sure you can use much of it elsewhere.

The region books are always handy to have, but if you have the 1st ed book you should be able to pretty much wing it.

Alright..I gave the Abyssal book a good look over.  The general desire is for a war game of the Abyssals versus the Realm yes?

Well, that's what I'm looking for.  I wouldn't mind a little political intruige,  and of course character interaction but epic scale warfare is what I'm hoping for.

Well, obviously the Realm won't fall in one day and there's alot of angles to work for that end.  I'm just trying to figure out which Deathlord to use or if I should make one up.  Thinking the Lion might be best...just go after Realm satrapies in the South and then make an assault on the Blessed Isle.

Alright,  and I agree with Lion would probably be my prefered Deathlord.

Alright, we'll plan for a setting along the South then with an emphasis on warfare.
