I'm a bit late posting here, but Hi! I'm M. InkSplatterM if you want to get formal. I can be found in the greater Chicagoland area of the US. Been interested in Exalted since I found it about midway through it's second edition (you could still buy the books in bookstores and I thiiiiink that at least up to the DB book was published), when I found it and other (then) white wolf publishing games.

So for an essence 1 character, it'd just be a hardness of 6, but will have increasing returns as his character levels up. The...
