Read this article to get a hang of the setting. http://theonyxpath.com/exalted/

>That sounds cool, how can I get into it?
Play this tutorial: http://jyenicolson.net/exalted/. It'll get you familiar with most of the mechanics.

>Gosh that was fun. How do I find a group?
Pray. But seriously, Roll20 and the Game Finder General here on /tg/ are both places where games could be found. Still, they tend to be rare since no one wants to ST.

>Wow, this book is confusing as hell. How the fuck am I supposed to generate a character from this mess?
Anathema. http://anathema.github.io/. This is a godly character generator. It has all the charms in nice little skill-trees, a soothing sight for anyone who's ever played an RPG before. It also does all of the math for you, making it very easy to experiment with builds and create character sheets easily

The Compass does strongly imply that Ligier does it on purpose, but it's more interesting to think that it's part of his nature. A flaw he can't overcome. And it's more interesting to try to think of what would be a worthy sacrifice or when it would fail him than to dismiss the idea. You're free to, of course, but that's boring.

The wall of an ancient temple depicts the Exalted in combat against the ancient, cosmic god-monsters that created the world. The piece should be highly stylized, somewhere between hieroglyphics and Mesoamerican temple art—the temple wall is carved as well as painted. A Solar Exalted champion is foremost in the battle, glorious in golden armor and carrying a magical, golden blade, with lesser Chosen supporting him (a beast-like Lunar Exalt, a mystical Sidereal, and several Terrestrial soldiers in jade armor of various colors—red, white, blue, black, green). The enemy of the Exalted is a vast and terrible titan, one of those monsters that wrought the world and created the gods, and whose age the Exalted brought to an end by steel and spell. The depiction should be action-centric, rather than two forces posing before one another; the Solar hero should be striking a blow against his vastly greater foe, leading his fellows to victory.

I kind of never understood how anima banners work. Like lets say a persons anima banner was a wolf or something, when they go iconic does a giant wolf appear over their head? Does it surround them? Does it slash with its claws when they attack? It gets more confusing since the books dont really have much in the way of art for iconic animas.

Call me a masochist, but I love handing my GM all the rope he needs to hang me. I'm that guy that goes out of his way to give my GM backstories full of loved ones still around, the one that makes a point of developing connections to the world around the character. I love the tension that comes from being put into situations where I have to choose between long-term goals and the character's family.

I love that over time, after having sacrificed much and saved everyone possible - and never enough of them - that the victories come with deep personal losses. At their best, this plays out as the character being heroic in the face of adversity. At worst, it leaves the character a damaged mess merely playing at heroism.

But that's where my characters' arcs normally end.

That's why I so deeply love Abyssals. Where many of my characters spend entire campaigns slowly digging to rock bottom, Abyssals start already there with varying degrees of comfort with the fact that they sold their souls for power.

Thanks to my ST ruling that Phantom-Conjuring Performance had the same anima banner-altering function as Haunting Apparition Trick, my Zenith has gone through a couple iterations on her banner.

When she first exalted, it was a great crow feathered with shields and with beak and talons formed from many daiklaves.

When she hit Essence 4, it manifested as an image of Mt. Meru being scoured by the Sun itself, large chunks of it ablating away revealing a pure orichalcum pillar, the banner itself radiating a palpable sensation of hatred and thirst for preemptive vengeance.

Since then, she found out about the Great Curse and realized thanks to that that the Usurpation needed to happen, so she let go of a lot of the rage at the Realm, the Immaculate Doctrine, and the Wyld Hunt. As a result, her anima has shifted to an image of Mt. Meru merely being warmed by the light of the sun and radiating a sensation of serenity and sorrow over what has happened, what is happening, and what she will have to do to set things right.

Because he is so much unlike any of the others.
Where the others are trapped in Malfeas, he could leave were he not trapped in himself, were others have many temples dedicated to them, he has a single temple city, while others are straight-jacketed by their portfolio, Oramus defines what can and can't exist, while the others were created after time began, Oramus was already unimaginabley ancient and impossibly old at the Dawn of Time.

The other Yozi are scared of him, and rightly so.

Well lemme try get a read on it, charm by charm.

1)That perception roll is piss-easy so the charm is weak.
2)+JB, -speed, it's ok.
3)Due to dicecaps, it's an overpriced, weaker IAM. It's ok at the essence level it is in, but gets hopelessly outshone later. Or depending on how stringently you read it, the charm can not have an effect in combat, ever, at all.
4)A hefty bonus to disarms. Nice.
5)Form: become transcendant uncaring murderhobo. The immunities are situational at best.
6)Spend 2xp to get some extra successes against one opponent. Sure, those are nice if the ST lets them to bypass the dicecap.
7)A very little extra damage at the cost of +3 to enemy's DV. Lame.
8)Yes, that would include all specialties and weapon's defence and excellencies and so on. But not the stunt as the stunt is added after the divide by two. So, generally a doubler of your DV, scenelong. This is very, very good.
9)Capstone's problem is chiefly in gruesome violation of other styles stylistics. And potentially allowing them to be hax. But this style itself barely has anything to actually use those weapons with.

Also it's not even fulfilling the "fast and brutal" criteria our friend is asking for.

How does "rip apart mooks in order to power yourself up" sound for brutality?

If yes, look into White Reaper.

>Yes, that would include all specialties and weapon's defence and excellencies and so on. But not the stunt as the stunt is added after the divide by two. So, generally a doubler of your DV, scenelong. This is very, very good.
What makes you think that ruling is the case? I'm not arguing, I'd just love something to back it up.

Generally, whenever something asks you for your Att+Ability total in includes everything applicable.

As I see it, the intent of the charm is to remove the "divide by two" clause from the DV. So it becomes Dex+Ma+Excellency+Defence+Stunt instead of (Dex+Ma+Excellency+Defence)/2+Stunt
