    Honestly I've been struggling to find things to do as well, I can't sit back and let someone else be the center of attention for a session or two to build inspiration back up like in a normal playstyle. I always had fun, but dear god could letters turn into a slog when both the player and the ST are struggling to figure out how the hell to make a specific thing interesting. Idk about you guys but sometimes I would know very quickly when I got a reply and wait a few days anyway because I had no idea what to write about..

    Yeah, it's super rough basically running three games all at once. I've enjoyed having you here a great deal. Thanks for all your effort!

    That's one of the reasons I sort of liked the epistolary game, where it could be much more 'drawn down' with only a little bit of description + a dice roll or two to cover things that would normally be an entire scene. In theory it should have helped avoid burnout, but in practice... we'll, we've now burned out two STs.

    To the other players - what do you want to do next? Look for another new ST? Give it up and move on ( )? Something else?

    So time to speak up since you've probably noticed I've been slowing down. Sadly I think I'm gonna have to call it quits, I'm really struggling to keep it going and forcing it will just keep everyone waiting on me all the time. It's a rough game to run with so much going on and I've just not been able to put the work in it needs.

    It's been fun! Sorry to have a second GM up and bail on you though, I feel rotten for that D:

    I'm fine with a new player as long as they meet the basis of the game at least half-way. No more Exthalions trying to break the game for their own fun please. Also I no longer feel bad about waiting forever for my PM since I wasn't the only one distracted by a video game (Baldur's gate).

    Sorry for the lack of PM's, I'd been stolen by X-Com and I'll get my head back in the game now.

    This one! Not X-Com.

    How do people feel about a new player? I've got interest, but we're pretty far along.

    I forgot to mention this, but the Artifact made was a pair of fate rings (artifact war fans) that mote steal death essence and do some sort of anti-undead explosion.

    Yeah but there's level of scale for changes and I feel "Totally changing origin and history of most Celestial splats" bears a mention

    Literally every ST I've ever had has rewritten the Exalted setting to suit their tastes in some small way or another.

    Makes things more interesting when you can't make assumptions about the Secret Cosmic History of the Universe. (Also, I'm with Eura on how there was too much meta right off the bat in the standard materials.)

    You told us about the meta changes when they started to matter so minimal confusion. Honestly the Core book overloaded us with how the meta worked and never really let people create cool conspiracy theories for stuff we'd actually run into. I always loved the idea that we didn't win the primordial war and the Malfeas prison is just an excuse for the primordials to keep an eye on creation even if it doesn't matter either way.

    Hey hey all, so planning to wrap up this week. I'll sort it all out you'll see.

    But since it's coming up in threads now I guess we gotta talk what I'm up to when it comes to the Setting.

    I'm not going to part too far from Canon and go into the wild depths, but this game was set a year before the Solar's return and I've taken that as a liberty to change a fair few things when it comes to Celestials and so it's only fair I tell you that, so you don't assume you know why the Solar's went away (Yes I changed that) or expect there to be no Abyssals (There are) or that all your plans will be messed up when the Jade Prison opens (Because the Jade Prison isn't even a thing in this game's history)

    Hopefully this is okay and I probably should have asked way earlier than this, felt it only fair to help out the IC/OOC divide a bit by letting you know that there's mysteries out there to solve about what happened to all the Celestials and it won't just be a case of reading the Core Book to find out what happened, which I felt would work better in a mainly social/investigative game.

    Sorry again! I BEG FOR FORGIVENESS.

    Not completely sure Aisa would share all the wedding details, but I wanted an excuse to post them, so there you all go.

    Also, Aisa's reaaaaaaly wishing she were a sidereal right now. So many cool first age books and secrets and access to the Loom of Fate, and...

    :ahem:

    I mean, Dragon Blood is Best Blood. Yes, that's right. Serious Empress lady is not impressed by your nonsense.
