Exalted 2nd edition Looking for a group and Storyteller.
« on: August 09, 2010, 11:39:37 PM »
Well with an username like that, yeah you guessed right that I do enjoy the exalted game quite a bit. So I'm looking to play in an exalted game, willing to play any kind of celestial exalted or even a god-blooded (if a game focused on god blooded). I was a never big fan of the dragon blooded so not looking forward to play any of those.
What else? Ah yeah, if someone even want to do a campaign based on the Return of the Scarlet Empress, I'll be more than willing to play in it.
I like some kind of storyline to the roleplay but could play sandbox too. I think that having a common goal does help focusing the story more and stop the stalling of the story. I never played an Infernal exalted yet so bonus if someone want to make a game focused on the infernal coven and akumas.

I think that will be all.  Any questions? feel free to ask.

I am so down for some exalted if we can get a ST to run it that is.

I may be interested in joining in on this, that is if all would not mind me being new at 2nd edition Exalted I do have the main book and the Lunars, but that's about it and Ive never played the new edition.  Ill keep any eye on this anyway, I hope you can find someone to run it.  :-)

I like Exalted a good deal and would be interested in STing but I'll be honest from the start. If I did ST I would need help with the mechanics part of the game. Fluff I get, crunch not so much. And, learning from past mistakes on here, I'd like the group fairly small.

That all said, I did just finish reading RotSE and I'd be interested in running a game based on it. :) By preference I'd prefer Celestial Exalted, though I could work with Terrestrials.

Alright I can help on the mechanics a bit if you have question but the best way to think about it well at least on the skill test kind of thing, you decide what rolls the players make.
For combat, there aren't really any easier way to explain but the way they have it laid out in the book (doesn't mean that it is easy, sadly have to reread it multiple times to get it) but essentially using x action changes your position in initiative during combat barring of course the use of charms.
A small group is fine with me, which group of exalted would you feel more comfortable in ST'ing?

Yeah. I can re-read and make adjustments as necessary. :)

As for the other question: I'd prefer Celestial Exalted. Solars, Lunars, and Infernals would work, but the book really got me interested in a setting where Sidereal PCs take the front stage. I like the thought of the PCs being (or becoming) the last Sidereals in existence and having to shoulder the fate of Creation on very young, untested shoulders. :)

That said, I'd have no qualms running a game for Infernals and akuma trying to claim Creation for their masters or running for Solars and/or Lunars out to save the world. :)

In order of preference at least for me for this game would be:
1.-Infernal and Akuma
2. Sidereals
3. Lunars

I do like the solars a lot but I want to see a different point of views from other celestial exalted  because Most of the exalted games that I played involved a circle of solars.

I'd also be up for this, but with a preference for Solar Exalted or Alchemicals.

I'm waiting for my FLGS to get in copies of the Return. I may well run it, depending on what I think of the campaign and how much I'd want to adjust things.

Infernals and Alchemicals wouldn't really fit into it mind you.

I wouldn't mind playing in two campaigns of exalted if you do decide to run it as well, I see it as an opportunity to see the story from another POV plus each ST tells a story fairly differently and have room to do so with people like the Emissary etc...

Very true. I suspect every GM is going to put their own twist on the setting.

Hmmm... Ive never played a sidereal before could be interesting to do. Well which ever you decide to do I am interested either way so count me in.

Picked up the Return this evening. Should hopefully get a chance to skim through it by the weekend, and will see how I am for time then.

So you'll be STing for the group as a whole Hairy?

Okay cool. If you have time to run it then I'll happily be a player. If not I'll try to ST for the group.

Hi! :D

I haven't really done system games before, but I hear from a friend who's a fan of White Wolf that I would like this game's setting. So, total newbie, and I guess I don't have any preference for plot, other than wanting to be one of the 'good guys'.

I never played in an Exalted game, and not sure of the rules and whatnot, but I might be interested.  Can anyone recommend a website for a decent crash course in Exalted?

Hey Synecdocte, well the good guys by default are the solars(even some of them don't technically have to be nice) but imagine that the whole world believe that most of you are insane and monsters.

Hey Lira, here the wiki, it should help a bit at least: http://wiki.white-wolf.com/exalted/index.php?title=Main_Page
For the system well, it's storyteller but I would say that it would be very hard without the books mostly due to combat being fairly complex and the possibility for people to do combos and the likes.

Cant believe I didnt see this till now

Also interessted, although I havnt played much and will have to brush up on the rules. Is there anything set in stone yet as far as open material, settings, the types of exalts, or stories?

So far seems like it's leaning toward the Solars if Hairy does choose to gm it.
