Once, in a bygone age, the Solar Exalted ruled over Creation as god-kings. But they were betrayed and overthrown. Over the centuries their great works have fallen into ruin and their names have been villified by those who replaced them.
Now in this fallen Age of Sorrows, mortals once again have been chosen to take on the power of the Solar Exalted. Will they raise up Creation or destroy it?
Players will portray the Solar Exalted. Play will revolve around the hive of scum and villainy known as Nexus. There’s also a small house rule I’m trying out in this game.
In Exalted, there is something of a big deal about “anima banners.” These are auras that manifest when a great deal of magical power is exerted. This also has some secondary effects that vary by caste.
To recreated this, there will be a house rule that characters will glow with power when they spend two or more Strength cards in a scene when those cards represent some innate ability and not an external resource. At two cards this aura is just bright and obvious. At three cards this becomes a towering bonfire of energy with iconic/totemic images manifesting in the flickering energy.
As part of the narrative, players may also choose to have this anima banner manifest and use their caste related ability without playing other cards.
Exalted is a creation of White Wolf Publishing. This game is not meant as a challenge to their intellectual property, just a chance to play in their awesome setting without their clunky rules.
