I think we have a fair number of Exalted fans here, both those who want to (or at least are willing to) GM, as well as those who want to play.
What do people think about the idea of a 'Living' Exalted campaign? Characters could carry over from one game to another, xp, items and history is kept (pending individual GM approval, if it might conflict with their own story plot). If a game finished up, or even an individual had to drop for whatever reason, they could then take the character on to another game later.
Hm... I don't have them. I mean, that'd be fine with me? I'm not sure I'll be able to run more games than one, at any rate, and if people needed to drop/etc. having this would allow for others to join perhaps more fluidly than needing to create a new character, certainly.
As for needing to affect one another... I mean, Creation is huge
. My current idea has a city-state sitting between Nexus and Lookshy - to the people there, Port Calin is really far away, and I doubt many of the denizens hear more than tall-tales and crazy stuff about, say, the West. There are stories that you might hear, eventually - like, the Bull smashing House Tepet's strength - which might affect games between one another, but I'm not certain how often the problem would come up unless we're all grouped in (relatively) close contact with one another - say, I run in the Scavenger Lands near Lookshy and Nexus, someone else does in Vaneha, and a third in Ixcoatli. Even then, the tales would not necessarily affect one another, I think.
