Join the Endless Caravan (Exalted Rules)

From the Forests of the East, to the Sand Kingdoms of the fire lands of the South, to the Infinite Plains of the SouthEast, the Endless Caravan winds its way in all the sunlands of Creation.

Rumor has it things have been hard for the Caravan in recent years, and the legendary caravan master, Euphimonious Trade, has hired a Night Driver to escort the Caravan through the ever-more-dangerous Green Sea toward the Fire Lands of the West.

You have been contacted by Chain, the dragon-blooded Lieutenant of the Night Driver. He wants your unique skills for the Caravan's journey this year. You must band together and collect Grayn Ghostblood from his last engagement in the town of Haven and get to the Caravan before it creaks its way out of the small seaside kingdom of Perfection.


This is a one-shot introductory adventure to try out a group and see if we get along and have compatible story-telling. There's an Endless Caravan adventure we can play as a 3-session trial if it feels like we've got a good group.

Pre-generated characters with interesting, interwoven backgrounds.

See the introduction to the Endless Caravan and the characters for this game:

What I'm looking for are creative individuals interested in getting into character and creating a vibrant, interesting story together.

It's not important that you have experience in any particular system, or much experience at all, as long as the idea of storytelling and exploring the light and dark aspects of the human story gets your imagination moving.

 

Looking forward to it!

      I blabbed with Dael. He thought he could bump up getting together. What if we play every 2nd and 4th Sunday, and once in a while we carpool to Sacramento together to play at Dael's pad?

      June 10, 2013

    • Jose P.

      Sounds awesome to me. And never been to Sacramento, so yeeeeeeha!

    The group really showed up. The story flowed. It's been a while since gaming was this fun!

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make the time. Efforts to go and move things around were unsuccessful.

    June 8, 2013

    • Pól S.

      Sorry to miss ya. Thanks for letting me know. Maybe next time! :) I'll get to keep Grayn drunk and stupid, which will be eeeexcellent!

      June 9, 2013

  • Pól S.

    All right, gentlemen and lady, we are set for a slightly earlier time, about 12:45 at my place (12:30 at Fruitvale BART). There's plenty of parking, but use your GPS to get here as the local geography is somewhat wacky!

    I am planning to order some Chinese food for lunch and to start about 1:30 or so with the story. :)

    Email me [masked] if you have any special food requests.

    See you all soon!

    June 7, 2013

    • Jose P.

      Thanks Pól. I'll be there at Fruitvale by 12:30. If someone else is driving and want to pick up me, maybe you don't have to come yourself, but please, someone pick me up!!! please!! :-)

      June 7, 2013

    • Pól S.

      I'll snag you at 12.30. :)

    Which characters are still available for me to live in?

    June 7, 2013

    • Pól S.

      Grayn is the character that's left. :)

    June 4, 2013

    • Brian

      I'm thinking about it. I'm reading up on everything before I give my confirmation.

      June 5, 2013

    • Jose P.

      Hey Brian, you coming finally?

      June 7, 2013

  • Jose P.

    Hey terrestrials! Meetup is at 3PM but I will probably get there earlier and I was wondering if you guys would like to have lunch before gaming. There's some decent pizza available next to Fruitvale BART station...

    June 4, 2013

    • Jose P.

      A lift from BART would be much appreciated, Pól. Just let me know what time works for you and if you want me to bring anything or to pick up food before.

      June 5, 2013

    • Pól S.

      Sure, about 12.30 would be great. Mark? Liz?

      June 6, 2013

  • Pól S.

    I'm really looking forward to us all getting together this weekend!
    If you haven't gotten your character background yet, please message me and I'll email it to you.
    If you'd like to prepare, I recommend starting with finding a voice for your character. It could be an accent, like a little lilt to match the character's positive attitude. It could be a slow, rumbly way of speaking because he is moved by the spirit of the earth. Maybe he uses high-fallootin' words, but mispronounces them by putting the emPHAsis on the wrong sylLABle.

    Also, I'm about 1.3 miles from the Fruitvale BART station. Possible to walk, but the way is a little strange and desolate. Happy to pick you up there, or if anyone is driving from SF, maybe carpooling could come about.

    Have a great week!

    If you're looking for a little introduction to the world of Exalted, there's a thematic introduction here: http://www.white-wolf.com/exalted/
    a more technical introduction: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exalted

    For those of you that don't like reading, don't worry about it, just bring lots of d10s. And some snacks. :)

    The characters in this game are not the traditional "Solar Exalted" of the main ruleset, but a smattering of interesting individuals.

    I look forward to a stirring introduction, some great roleplaying and a taste of the glory and the doom intertwined which is Exalted.

    want to play exaulted a lot, I have a lot of 1st eition book I bought used, are these the right ones for the game? can I play the spirit hunter?

    May 22, 2013

    • Pól S.

      Grayn is all yours! :) 1st and 2nd edition are similar. Just familiarize yourself with the world background - the rules are pretty straightforward.

    Hey, everyone! If you haven't already, visit the website for this adventure, and pick a character. It looks like ONYX and SANCTION are taken.

    I think i will play The Eunuch "Onyx"

    April 26, 2013

  • Jose P.

    I'd love to but I can't make it this Sunday, Pól.

    April 18, 2013

    • Jose P.

      I had a look at the characters on the website and I have to say I really enjoy the idea of the magicless wizard ;-)

      April 22, 2013

    • Pól S.

      Oh, I think you'd do an awesome job playing Saction! Consider him yours!

      April 23, 2013

  • marmad

    Do you want me to buy the exalted book, and if so would reading certain areas of the book ruin any surprises in the story.

    April 22, 2013

    • Pól S.

      You can certainly buy the Exalted book if you like. These are not Solar Exalted and the story is not part of the main thrust of the world. I'd say read the world background online to get a flavor of the euro/chinese wuxia high-fantasy world.

      April 22, 2013

  • marmad

    Last Saturdays pathfinder was pretty cool, They were all cool and the DM helped me with rules clarifications. I have been waiting to play Pathfinder for a while and I can say that if done well the rule set is very solid.

    April 22, 2013

  • Jose P.

    Oh yeah :)
