    About the adventure

    This one-shot game introduces players to Exalted: Essence, a streamlined version of Exalted: 3rd Edition. It casts players as a Circle of Exigents — the unique champions of lesser gods, each created in response to an urgent need by desperate deities willing to risk their own destruction. Character sheets will be provided, and the game is intended for both experienced Exalted players and newcomers to the game and setting.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Players should be prepared with a mic and either an electronic roller or an uncanny number of d10s. Webcams optional but encouraged if you're comfortable being perceived. No prior experience with Exalted is necessary, but interested players can review the game's basic setting in the Exalted: 3rd Edition corebook.

    What I provide

    Character sheets and brief rules cheatsheets will be provided.

    Gameplay details

    Players will be asked to complete an anonymous Lines & Veils sheet at the start of the session to establish some basic boundaries, and X-card rules will be in effect to respond to any unexpected content issues.
