I'm leaning on the Zenith myself. Second choice would be that trippy Eclipse.

I was thinking of taking the Twilight but the Dawn is a close second.

I'm fine with any of them, so I'm cool with picking a character after those who have preferences decide.

I went home for the weekend and accidentally forgot to bring with me the charger that my laptop needs to live. Thankfully, my brother has an identical laptop with an identical charger, so I should be good tomorrow night, but I may end up needing to switch to my phone at some stage as a fair warning.

So are we using the general voice channel on the Discord for this? ANd are there any special links to to other tabs we'll need to have opened?

Yeah, the general voice chat in Discord. I had just planned on handing out the necessary links when we get there.

Sorry, for some reason I had this as being 30 minutes earlier in my head. I also remembered we had an extra laptop at home, thankfully, so I have a fallback should battery life become an issue!

No problem, I'm glad you all enjoyed it! You guys did well finding the third (-ish*) option out of the final confrontation as well, especially considering a bunch of you hadn't had any exposure to Exalted previously. There was an exchange in the feedback thread on the official forums that got some comments from the scenario's writer:

Stephen Lea Sheppard spoilers
Quote:
Q:So, query: how does one get out of this situation without hurting anybody that doesn't deserve it?

A:Well, for starters, it'd probably be a good idea to go in with more setting knowledge and occult puissance than the premades have. Maybe something that actually lets you compel the demon to do no harm once it's released, or even just tell with some certainty what it's likely to do if freed.

...

I should probably note at this point that the phrase "Tomb of Dreams" is not merely a description of the scenario's setting or a joke on Exalted demo adventures always having "Tomb" in the title. (Though it is those things!) The scenario is ultimately a dilemma where your power is sufficient to ensure you're the only one who can force a resolution, but not sufficient to determine what that solution ought to be; if you had dared hope your status as a Solar Exalt would be sufficient to always Captain Kirk Third Option your way out of these things, welp.

(I am very pretentious.)

I'm super-interested in hearing how it plays out at actual tables.

...

By default, the scenario doesn't include a clear way to keep Cseke bound. Either you free it, or it fights you to the death.

Of course, Mirror Flag has an oathsealing power....


I may try to keep this thread alive as a general Exalted hype thread since we've got actual release schedules popping off for the line again. Also, Exalted in general, and third edition in particular have been very good at getting community homebrew going, to the point where someone has actually completed a draft for an entire homebrew Dragonblooded book, and there's more than one fan conversion of the Sidereals. The official DB book is due to be released later this year, but the fact that this dude slapped together 170+ pages is kind of nuts. I've written a few artifacts and monsters for my own game, but nothing on that scale.

If more modules come out, I'd be willing to run other one-shots, or if some of you lurkers avoided any spoilers in the thread and you wanna run it with or without some of the vets I'm up for that, too!

*Technically speaking, Cseke has the option of just staying in Creation, violating his oath and dealing with whatever consequences the oathbreaker's curse sends his way as a result. Hence, third-ish. Even this doesn't guarantee a perfect outcome.

I'm definitely way more motivated to get the 3rd edition books now. The lower lethality of combat makes me feel like there is more room for me to do interesting things. Also, I feel like I kinda want to try and break the initiative system at some point.

I learned it's very hard to come up with sick combat/dodge stunts for a character who is very much not a combat-focused character. But it was an enjoyable game nonetheless.
