I need some details for the game. Location, game style(more politicÓl or is this an adventure.) any restrictions on gear, or backgrounds, and how in depth our backstory should be. Soon as i have an underdtanding of all this i can finish. Also what is the stance on martial arts?

North likely plays role in the game in start and several players have martial arts (so nothing against that; I am using Black Claw style example and Lambent Dancer Spark uses Arms of Unconquered Sun). Also our slayer uses infernal monster style. Backgrounds wise my char uses Infamy (which is from broken winged crane).

I sense the second one listed is a gunslinger. Ynless arms of the incoured sun is not what i think it is.

You mean gunslinger which uses martial arts with guns? It's possible ofc :). Plasma pistols are canon as are hellwands and firewands.

There is still a six shooter form of fire wand right?

Closest thing to a six-shooter was the Prayer Piece which was in the Glories: UCS book.  I imagine something like it could be adapted.

Also in wonders of lost age is alchemical weapons in pg75; plasma tongue repeaters are pistols with 5 ammunition and work like firewands for charm interaction purposes.

We're starting in the far Northwest, probably in Dalanth Gandharva, a city-state written up on Page 3 or something. Character creation rules are at the top of Page 2. Local ethnic influence seems like a mix of India and the Polynesian Islands, so if you're planning to be locally Exalted it's worth taking that into consideration. I don't know about game type or anything, but we seem to have a surfeit of would-be-king types, not that that's not perfectly normal for Exalted.

I am more the warlord, and in my thoughts shapeshifting soulders, offspring on an exalte would make for a good army.

Those chracter creation rules sound really complex though. And that xp amount sounds pretty hefty.

Those are quite complex rules :P. In this game it's simpler.

Oh. So things like the Pectoral, the various hearthstones, and the tongue of the serpent prince don't stack? That would change how I spent points. I was building her with the idea that she's really stacked on the social-fu end of things.

Social fu you just need super app and high atributes with the right charm. End result, you win, they look the fool.

MDV is usually higher than most creatures DV's are :P. If stacking intimacies on atop it. So need good base dice pool before buffing to able affect non-exalted usually. But true importance lays in charms also; martial arts what I use and soulcrack exploitation as both are very good for such task (plan go for GYTB charms after char gen).

Yeah, albeit in 2.5 errata you do not need spend XP creating combos nor burn WP to use them.

You can use any combination of charms that would be legal each action, though normal combo rules like what happens with supplemental charms still apply.

They stack as long as they're not Xing the same Y. Example, if you have adamant hearthstone bracers and a starmetal short daiklave, you don't get both the bracer and starmetal bonus to Accuracy, you just take the higher bonus (I think those are both +1). If you have two hats that give you +2 to Charisma, your total is +2, not +4.
