NC-E sounds like a good place to put it. Starlight of course would happily use seduction as part of her methods but yeah, Exalted can be full of surprises and NC-E covers a lot of them.

Well, guys, I think that by the Red Rule and what WK said, we can downgrade it to BON-H, though I am not sure whether that covers the Psyche Charms.

The Red Rule, as per my understanding, is that you can't force a character into something where the player isn't willing.

This seems like it would contradict The Red Rule, but a lot of people are willing to play NC games even when their characters absolutely wouldn't be.

I played a game once where my character was hypnotized and seduced while under a trance, and we put it in NC.  I think Unnatural Mental Influence would certainly qualify there.

UMI is apparently now called Psyche, and it looks like Monk-Seducing Demon Dance and most other Charms aren't actually Psyche, so it seems moot.

The Red Rule reminds you that the GM is a player, and WK said the following.

Quote
My own inclination is to say that I am almost 100% certain that rape will not be a part of this game - as in, depicted in any sort of detail. It will be a thing that happens and/or happened in the past, but generally, I avoid it like a plague, because dear god I'm not comfortable depicting it in any sort of medium.
Seems like Red Rule to me.

And yes, there are Psyche seduction Charms in Presence and Performance, so I guess you need to pick between Bon-X and NC-X early on, depending on whether anyone is planning to use them.

...wow...it really does say that...apologies.  I'm used to the words "player character" being used to differentiate between PCs and NPCs.

Well, regardless, I'm good with whatever.

Yes, about the Psyche seduction charms... I think I would be uncomfortable with depicting them (in detail). I mean, I'm not going to forbid anyone from using them, but there're a host of things that just make me go... yuck.

At any rate, I'm inclined to do BON-H, at this point in time. I mean, Exotic means something non-humanoid, right? I don't think there will be anything with that qualification involved in sex. Probably.

Lunas.  Demons. Elementals.

Hm. Fair point.

Here is the thread

Just post your character sheets there now, until all five have been placed. I'd kind of like it to be easy to find. :P

Well, I'm saying nothing about the plans of all of our sorcerers, but I find it better to overestimate players :P.

It was about time for people to get reminded that the GM is a player, too.

Regardless of the above, my character would probably be served even by Vanilla Human, though it kinda depends on the other side as well.

Yeah, but it's probably best to be safe.
