Children of the Sun
I am looking for interest 3e game which involves a group of newly Exalted Solars who have been dreaming about a location in the jungles of the southeast. Said location being the hidden tomb of a Circle slain shortly after the Usurpation. Said Solars were buried in the tomb they had prepared for their eventual demise so as not to anger their ghosts. However, during the beginning of the Usurpation this Circle, who was not at the great convocation, was able to make some last minute tweaks to their tomb knowing their ends were drawing near.
Fate and circumstance would lead the newly minted Solars to arrive at the aforementioned location and almost exactly the same time---because without coincidence most epic fantasy would just never be. From that point I would expect the characters to act based on their backgrounds and intimacies. I neither want nor expect the characters to become instant friends but I also don't want everyone to be at each others throats simply because it inverts the Friends With a Stranger trope. I will say that all of the characters will be familiar with each other in the same way a person might vaguely recall an relative they have not seen since they were children. The familiarity may be more with some of the characters if we work that out in back story. Upon arrival the resonance of this exact set of Solar Essenses will be the "key" needed to unlock the tomb revealing some goodies and secrets for the Solars to ferret out and from there said adventure would ensue.
And no, said Circle need not be a "Perfect" Circle.

1. The game is open to any and all.
2.Since this is 3rd ed and no other official rule sets exist only Solars will be allowed. All characters will be as is from the book for a starting character. I want to try the rules but if we get into this thing and decide tweaks are warranted then we can cross that bridge.
3. I want to work with players to have fun and interesting Evocations for their artifacts. I am usually open and easygoing but be forewarned if you ask for something extreme or unreasonable in my judgement, I will likely allow it but the enemies will just get nastier (I urge everyone not to do that to your fellow players). Yes, I will warn you should I think you are being unreasonable but as I said I am pretty easygoing.
4. I am a very open, free-form GM, while there are lots of things going on in the world I prefer for things to be player driven. That means that while I will offer up plots for the players I am more than OK if all of that is ignored and the characters go off on their own adventures. In other words just because the PCs hear about an evil despot oppressing a village nearby, they should not feel compelled to do anything about it. (Other than the fact that they are supposed to be heroes and all).
5. I would prefer the characters are the flawed heroes Solars are supposed to be so I will be disinclined to allow any "evil" characters. Messed up, broken, tormented, and other such things are expected and welcome so long as they are not disruptive to the fun of the game.
6. I would like some solid backgrounds explaining intimacies as these are going to be used to shape the opportunities presented in the game, whether or not these opportunities are acted on is up to the players. But leaving some undealt with could be dangerous in the long term.
7. I am open 6 or 7 players whom I will chose based on back story. I would like a well-rounded party, expect intrigue, social interactions, combat, political maneuvering, skulduggery, and more in on particular order of precedence.
8. Nothing above or below is set in stone I am open to suggestions, changes, and the like. Outside of the rules of the site I have only two hard rules
and those are--- 1. Understand before seeking to be understood and, 2. We can agree to disagree, so long as we do so agreeably.
9. The amount of naughtiness is open to negotiation. However, the game will
contain adult themes and events.
Some other images which evoke the feel I am going for.
Thanks for reading and, with luck, game on!!
