About the adventure
In a world where gods bicker like middle-schoolers, and chaos is always one argument away from tearing reality apart, it's high time for a fresh approach. Welcome to Godshead University (GHU), the brainchild of Mohammed Salah, a Scion of Thoth with enough diplomas to wallpaper his study. His goal? To bring together young Scions from every pantheon under the sun (and some beyond it), teaching them to set aside ancient rivalries and work together. But GHU isn't all sunshine and ambrosia. As you young Scions learn to play nice and work as a team, the sinister forces of chaos and ever-lurking Titanspawn are just itching to crash the party. In this play-by-post adventure, you will step into the shoes (or sandals) of a young Scion, Dragon, Saint, or other Supernatural Descendant navigating the tangled web of godly and mortal politics, forging unexpected alliances, and carving out your own legendary destinies. As you confront the perils lurking within the hallowed halls of GHU and the world at large, you'll need to find balance between your divine DNA and your all-too-human hearts. After all, the fate of The World is on the line, and it's going to take a united front of rookie heroes to keep it from going up in flames.
How to prepare
The game will be conducted on my Discord channel. Each person signed up can check in daily when they choose and describe what your character is doing.
What I provide
The Rules, the story, the Maps (if/when they're used), My FoundryVTT server (in case combat becomes too tiresome to handle over pure text and dicebots), and a Devious and Creative mind ready to spin an Epic Yarn
It's expected that this is a new system to the players, and we will be moving somewhat sedately at the beginning as a learning experience for all involved. Exalted as a Game is less about "Can I do the Cool thing" and more about What Happens AFTER you accomplish the Cool thing. This game especially will focus on the social elements of the game to a larger degree than the combative elements, though combat should be expected and there are always places to go to scratch other such urges. Keep in mind that both the Rule of Cool and the Golden Rule will be in-effect and be prepared to have FUN!
