Everyone wants to PLAY some Exalted, but it takes forever to set up.

So take this thread to discuss, at length, what sort of character you want a quest about, and when you're done, I'll run at least one thread about them.

Ready? Go nuts.

I'd like to play a martial artist. Really fast, good with a bow and close quarter unarmed combat. Element associated would be Wind/Lightning. I'd like him to hit really strong, on the line of a burst glass canon

Solar boyo

>>4990377
Fiend caste Infernal, renegade embracing the Ebon Dragon's spirit of betrayal to turn on the Yozi, as well as anyone else we can get to trust us.
Endgame goal of Triumphant Howl of the Devil-Tiger
400% overdosed on chuuni and loving it

>>4990592
I like the sound of this!

>>4990642
Good boyos.

>>4990660
Solid concept but it feels like it'd be complicated to pull off.

Chainsaw Karate up there with Dragon and Sun Karates for Best Karate.

I think I should pick Dawn cast for that.
Are cosmetic modifications allowed?

This doesn't feel thematically correct for what I want to build
>>
>>4990762
Skimming across the starter kit :
Fighting : 5 (favored Trait from Dawn)
Scholarship : 4 (favored Trait for free)
Magnetism : 3
Stealth : 2
Embassy : 1

If allowed, switching anima effect to "User shroud himself in electricity to add damage to unarmed attacks and projectiles"

Orphan that grew on streets, then noticed raised by an army engineer who saw his potential and teach him. It gave the exalted martial training. He was not that good with melee weapons, preferring unarmed combat and marksmanship. His favorite fighting strategy : shroud himself in thunder, sending bolt-arrows then punch with the power of lightning enemies making the mistake to come close enough

Spell known : wind shield. User shroud himself and allies in a small tornado, making projectiles harder to reach them

If this get approved, I can write a bit of backstory

Man, I know shit from resent editions of Exalted, I only know from the first edition because it was translated to spanish

From the rest, I don't know shit from either mechanics or Lore, but damn i'm looking forward for this Quest.
>>
i know the basics about exalted, and all i can say is
WELCOME TO THE EXALTED FIELDS MOTHER FUCKERS

>>4990762
I'd pick air aspect personally

Chul is a man returning home from a quest to find glory and deliver stories to his clan. During his trip he defeated great beast, saved many a man, bedded a few lasses. But more then anything he returns with god like strength and a new friend in a magical and feathered claw strider witch he seems to share a mystical connection to.

Chul is a dawn cast solar with a specialization in spear fighting, wilderness survival, and charming others threw carousing, tale swapping and the power of bro and himbo. He has a familiar in the form of a unenlightened dragon king and is motivated by a veage desire to be awesome and famous.

>>4990788
Is this Essence rules?
>>
>>4990377

I'd go for a Sidereal who has to balance being James Bond sorting out conspiracies in the Realm with inane celestial bureaucracy office politics.

I don't know the rules of the game actually, just fond a pdf version of a starter kit

i mean there's already a solar exalted quest on suptg that is still ongoing to this day on fanfiction dot live
>>
>>4991990
So? Solars are cool and are varried enough in powers, personality and origins that its not like if you have played or seen one you have played/seen them all.
>>
>>4992001
yea but let the other "races" have the spotlight once in a while, don't get me wrong solars are cool but i prefer alchemicals
>>
>>4992005
The wind/lightning-based martial art and bow guy can maybe be a support character to a more interresting one
>>
Fuck this, if possible, let's make some alchemist that uses his potions to enhance himself, like having stone-skin and other kinds of bullshit.
>>
where is QM?
>>
>>4992598
>Be me, QM
>Decided to do some good old trolling
>Go to the infamous hacker 4chan
>Say 'everyone wants to play exalted'
>Leave, letting us discuss at length character concept

Overall still a good thread, 8/10 would take the bait again
>>
>>4992603
>Leave, letting us discuss at length character concept

Dude that's literally what this thread is for. Reread the first post.
>>
Im liking the alchemist idea, but it would be cool if the alchemy is used directly as weapons too. Gas grenade, firebombs etc. Covering weapons in poison would be cool or if unarmed, feet, knees, and hands. That would be pretty dope
>>
Hey guys loving the ideas, just want to say though I think you should start by picking an Exalt type, Solar seems popular.

plz not solar there already IS a quest for that, let the other exalted types shine a bit more for the love of autochthon
>>
i think there should be exalted lost in san andreas quest maybe. like 3d era san andreas not the new one that's an island but the old san andreas, los santos, los venturas, san diego place. maybe it could be in the desert and country towns that was the coolest part of that game. we could be the exalted yakuza in the rural san andreas

After checking the d4chan, I think terrestrial of the air fit better as >>4991236 said

>>4992936
I’d personally like to play as something other than a solar with a dragon-blood or as a lunar exalt as my personal preference. Solars tend to just be a slow grind to inevitable victory and while that’s fine it’s also really played out. A dragon-blood would interesting for their ground-level perspective and actually requiring co-operation with the setting. You could do some stuff with their family; maybe changing the formula so that the Pc has a healthy family dynamic instead of the usual absent family shit? The big plot for this would be:How does a prince of the earth actually live their life and how does creation function?

A lunar exalt would be more work on your end for a variety of reasons, but I think it would be cool to explore solars from the perspective of someone who is bound so tightly to them that they’re generally just considered a solar’s duck toy and not a separate person with separate wants and dreams. The big plot(s) would be establish and maintaining a sense of self when so much of that person is mutable and/or tied to someone else?

Obviously there is more to these options and these are just my opinions, but here they are. Just give me something other than yet another solar.

Thanks QM :)

And now that I've read a little... I'm still going to push for a Sidereal Exalted Alchemist. An Skirmisher that uses his knowledge in science and tries to push fights to his advantage, like using gas bombs so that archers have a bad time shooting at him, or throwing some substance that make an allergic reaction in the skin so that soldiers have a difficult time until they wash it off. Or even make some potions to gain strenght or speed so he can defeat harder enemies.

I imagine him with some vials, a backpack where he have the ingredients and equipment for making those kinds of things, armed with a crossbow and knifes. What do you think? Even thanks to the 1d4chan article that QM posted we can make it a Getimian exalted even if there's not so much information of them, but I guess it will be nice and have some flexibility. Plush, it says there some kind of internal Alchemy, and I think that's cool

>>4995718
Can we a Lolibaba Lunar Exalt? Perhaps a Heroic Mortal who got de-aged upon awakening an exaltation?
>>
>>4992936
if you feel like running a civ quest there's also the option of playing a god trying to expand their kingdom, their own personal influence over it, acquire a loyal db gen, dig up ancient artifacts, manage cults and priests. Hell one of the few good things in 3e is the inclusion of the dreaming sea, an area noted with more first age labs and fey holds than normal. I'd love to see a quest there.
>>4995718
lunars are great, raksi is best girl.
>>
>>4995786
This isn't really how alchemy typically works in Exalted, and Getimian internal alchemy doesn't mostly involve potions and whatnot to my knowledge but if people want it I'll do it.

>>4990592
I watched Ip Man 2 and this vibes with me.

>>5000285
Noted! Also Age of Empires is best strat game.
