    [Exalted] Fan-created sources for 2e thaumaturgy?

    I posted this on the White Wolf Exalted boards too but didn't get any response, so I'm trying here in case anyone knows of anything I missed. :) I'm trying to compile a master list of thaumaturgical rituals for a 2e mortals game and I'm looking for more sources of fan-created rituals to flesh...

    [Exalted 2nd Edition] I Do Not Understand the Rationale behind the Eclipse Caste's Power to Learn any Charm

    In Exalted 2nd Edition, members of the Eclipse Caste can learn the Charms of other types of Exalted, spirits or the Fair Folk. I do not understand the rationale. The core book says they can accomplish this because they are talented generalists. One of my friends argued that it aids in their...

    [Exalted] Refracted Light of the Most High Style

    Some time ago, mostly for kicks, I tried my hand at designing a Sidereal Martial Art Style. Currently, the Solar campaign I'm GMing is reaching the point where Sidereal styles may well enter the repertoire of the PCs (and some of their NPC followers). So I'd love to get some thoughts on whether...

    [Exalted 2nd ed] How well does it work, mechanically, for god-blooded...

    ...in a world without any Exalted? I have an idea to run a fantasy game based on the Avernum series, and the changes I was thinking up--the Empire formed in response to humanity nearly being annihilated by the Fair Folk, strong polytheism and ancestor worship, ubiquitous but low-key magic...

    [Exalted 2e]Mutation abuse

    I'm going ahead and expanding the question, partly because I'm impatient but mostly because, thinking back over my 2e career, I remember mutations being a big area for abuse that I personally never touched. Against the other, more fundamental issues, they barely registered to me. So, what...

    [Exalted 2e] New Lookshy Air aspect needs help

    well, basically, I am joining a Lookshy Dragon Blood campaign and have settled on an Air aspect whose motivation is do something about those blights called Shadowlands. Therefore, the highest abilities are Occult and Investigation, because a solution is going to take a lot of both. May need...

    [Exalted 2E] random thought on flurries

    This is for discussion about hte implications of a random house rule idea I had about flurries in Exalted 2E What if I change the standard flurry system to something like this. A flurry is a series of actions done in short succession from each other. Each action takes one tick and incurs a...

    Via a nonlethal method, of course, such as the seduction or KO based ones in... I think DoTFA? Whatever. If they acquired an Infernal who's used Ebon Dragon shapeshifting charms form via a nonlethal method, what form do they get? Do they get the Infernal's real shape, or do they get a copy of...

    Exalted Martial Arts

    I just built my first character for an Exalted 2nd Edition game and I had a question about a few things with regards to Martial Arts. This is my first time playing Exalted so I decided to build a relatively simple character that was just a Melee fighter. My motivation is to learn a Celestial...

    Exalted 2e vs. Anima: BF for which game has the more difficult combat system

    I have heard that both these games have rather convoluted (difficult) combat systems... Which one is the worse offender, and why? If anything, we can compare what should be two really cool games that are mired by hefty combat rules, and maybe we can be inspired to come up with alternatives...

    My Exalted Modern Campaign "Potential Engines"

    Here's the first "trailer" that I have sent my players for my campaign that is going to start some time in the next couple months. It's going to be a Solar campaign focusing on the threats of Oblivion and the Raksha as well as the reaction of the Infernals to the sudden return of the Solars...

    Those who fight monsters . . . (I read Return of the Scarlet Empress)

    Exalted 3rd edition is coming out soon, and I want to be excited, but . . . Return of the Scarlet Empress. That book broke my heart. I was immensely skeptical of it in the lead up to its release, but I was repeatedly assured that the writers knew what they were doing, and I had liked most of...

    Best books of Exalted 2E?

    Okay, so all the talk about Exalted 3E has got me really interested in the game. Mostly the setting, I don't really have a group to play it with at the moment. I have heard that Exalted 2E is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to quality, especially when it comes to things published later in the...

    [Exalted] 1,001 crazy over-the-top things to insert into a game

    Just a fun little thread I decided to start. Please, everyone, contribute your own ideas so I can add them to the list! Hope people find it amusing! 1. The Solar PCs are finally taken before Chejop Kejack for a meeting to change creation. He opens his mouth and falls over dead. 2. The PCs...

    [Exalted] Help me design a customized campaign

    I love Exalted but I am going to be introducing the players to the Realm and want to keep things somewhat simple. I want them to experience what Exalted has to offer but I don't want to confuse things either. What I'm saying is that I want everything to link together in a cohesive whole and...

    Exalted- (the Bull and other NPCs with unfortunate implications)

    Made to keep control over a topic derail that I kind of started (sorry!) I think something that adds to the Bull of the North problem is that anyone starting Exalted in 2nd edition has Tepet Lisara as their sample of what they should expect from a typical Dragon-Blooded Officer (i.e. not a lot)...

    Exalted 2E conversion for modern

    This is my one-man brainstorm for a game I want to hash together. My intent is to use the exalted system as a framework for a superhero game (not trading in the books because I still play vanilla exalted as well). There are some modifications I've given some thought to, ranging from meh to...

    Is Exalted 2e playable with just the core book?

    As in, if you only had the core book is the game reasonably OK to play? At what point in supplements does the game start to break apart and/or become unwieldy? Iain.

    [Exalted] How fast is fast?

    I'm currently in a Solar Exalted campaign (and just recently switched over to 2.5 mid-campaign) and we're getting 5XP per session (as per the book according to the GM). YMMV from GM to GM, but compared to others' experiences, is 5XP per 3-4 hour weekly session the average for a typical campaign...
