    I tend to have my characters trade something of theirs to a god. Silent Mask gave up his physical strength for unerring accuracy. Varied Paths beat Zelos in a duel, so he made her 8 and a half feet tall with extreme resistance to pain.

    The Solars get to be god-kings because they're going to take leadership roles one way or another. That's basically it, and it's not a very good justification. Heck, my current dawn is actually high priestess to Zelos, god of strength. She's subordinate to him (kinda - she's not really very good at her job)

    I'd argue that the Solars lost their "right to rule by divine mandate" when Sol turned his face away from them, if anything.

    Does it have to be land?

    A common battlecry amongst Lunars looking to do damage to the realm is "shred some scales". While IS often said in reference to actual scales of the DB army, it's mostly used less literally.

    Also, Luna is very fond of alliteration.

    If I may offer my own perspective on why the Solars need to come first (assuming that we can't put more than one Exalt type out immediately): there's a few different reasons.

    1) Solars need to take a prominent role - The current age of Exalted is defined as one of history's major turning points. The old guard (the Realm) is starting to fade as all empires do, and are leaving a power vaccuum. The major change for this age is caused by not just the Solars but their immediate mirror opposites; the Abyssals. They are the great movers and shakers of this world. The Sidereals, DBs and Lunars...

    Hahaha, YES! Lunars! IMO, at minimum, you need DBs, Solars and Lunars to run a game of Exalted. DBs because they rule the world, will be your antagonists most of the time and have the strongest support structure, Solars because they're the catalyst that will shape the new age, and the Lunars because they're the most visible and immediate of the Anathema threats. (The Solars are still trickling back in, the Abyssals have only just now become a clear threat, the Infernals are still in hell and may or may not exist, the Alchemicals aren't here yet, you get the idea)

    I might be biased,...

    ... This... I... WHAT?!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but a full frontal assault isn't the Prince's style, right? He's more of a shadowy manipulator whose only fear is the Lover? (heheh, full frontal. Yes I'm a child) Even when he does fight, he's more of a navy guy than land war guy (because make no mistake, take the Isle would require a land war, it's the size of Asia. (Never get involved in a land war on the Blessed Isle)

    How and why is the Prince so powerful that he could just waltz over the Realm? I could see the Lion having this kind of power, maybe even the Mask given...

    replied to Solars starting the game with Artifacts
    Most of the time I saw artifacts in my games, they were either heirlooms that nobody really understood (ex: Single-Point style guy had a daiklave said to have been wielded by the school's founder) or just went unexplained. (hearthstone bracers got that treatment a fair bit). Finding the tomb of a former incarnation never really happened.

    Shocking, I know =/

    While most of the tales of the Anathema are heavily propagandized (albeit not entirely untrue), there is one that is completely true: the tale of the Forsaken. A very large group of the Dawn Castes of the First Age stood together as one against the Dragon-Blooded, and their fellows left them to die. Some did it because the Great Curse had long ago made them craven, others because they thought the Dawns were making a heroic last stand to buy time, yet others thought that the Dawns would triumph without the rest of the Solars and still others because it was too late to do any good. The Dawns only...
