An Exalted game hosted by Genzodus Thoth of the Middle Ground Forums. Our story starts at Maker's Breath, a tavern/inn somewhere just north of the second "e" in Yellow River on this map.◊ Our PCs are there for various unspecified reasons. 1 No, seriously, Thoth just dumped us there and told us to make up a good reason for why our PCs would even be there. 2 As mentioned, you guys have no business [[ButLiquorIsQuicker being together sober. Whilst mingling, the Wyld Hunt shows up and demands any and all Anathema to come out with your hands up. The PCs (for some reason) comply and walk out. Of course, a fight breaks out and by some "miracle" the PCs manage to take them all out, thusly agreeing that it'd be a good idea, as Exalted, to stick together from there on out. Hilarity shall Ensue.
Despair Event Horizon: The bad arrival in Autochthonia was definitely one for Waves and Rita. Though they managed to get over it after some time, the effects are still felt.
Difficulty Spike: A very, VERY early one, brought about because of a mistake on everyone's part (GM misjudging the level of the encounter and most of the party forgetting to get their main excellencies. Also no one read the freaking manual and saw that there is a minimum damage limit to our attacks thanks to Essence Pinging.)
The Hero: General Blackwood has been the one of the group actively trying to discern the plans of various antagonists in order to act against them. She's also the one responsible for bringing the group together.
The Lancer: While definitely not the greatest of guys, Duskor has certainly been trying his best to better himself and his outlook on Creation. He has also done a decent job of managing to keep people together.
The Smart Girl: Rita, of course. Though it's mainly in the area of booksmarts. She's even begun to work on a machine to purify Death Essence. All she's missing is a powersource.
The Big Guy: Cyrus. The guy can turn into a goddamn T-Rex. Not only that, but even when he isn't, he sure knows how to throw those knives.
The Chick: Captain Midnight Waves. Definitely the most emotional of the group, she's trying to figure out where she belongs, and wants to help all those she can that were effected by the Second Conquest of Thorns.
Flat "What.": Delivered by Mitsugi, twice in the same session. The first one when Cyrus had found a small sailing ship concealed in some bushes and the second when Cyrus later explained that Luna appeared to him as a pregnant man.
Get on the Boat: The party found one hidden on the shore of the Yellow River. They subsequently crossed said river with it and will probably take it to various other places.
Ghost Memory: Technically all Celestial Exalts (and Alchemicals) have this, but recently, Duskor, Grace, Rita, and Lost have all been afflicted by resurfacing memories.
Muscles Are Meaningless: While every Exalted in the group could fit this trope, the standout ones so far are Lost Daughter and Duskor. Lost, a little girl, regularly carries a blade several times bigger than her and wields it with ease, while Duskor is a skinny guy in a cloak and mask who, thanks to the virtue of Charms, can tear people apart with his bare hands.
Mugging the Monster: On the way to Great Forks, the party is ambushed by a large group of everyday bandits, at least 12 of them. They let 1 escape.
Nominal Importance: Subverted. Even some of the townies have been revealed to have individual names and personalities. Example: Airship Pirate 497 is the first mate of the Descending Shadow of the Impossible Storm, but no one has bothered to ask his name yet.
Put on a Bus: Mitsugi and Weiss were knocked out during the pirate fight and are still knocked out by the end of the session. Since the players have left due to shenanigans +1, only time will tell what befalls those two heroes.
Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Leeeeeeet's see... We got: A wandering Assassin with a decent heart, another wandering Assassin with a less decent heart, a 12 year old demon-child who wields a blade forged with her parent's souls, a Catgirl, A bored Lunar who wants to be a master thief, and a bandage wrapped wandering... wanderer. And now the first wandering assassin and the bandage wrapped wanderer were Put on a Bus and been replaced by a robot pirate girl with her own airship.
Reincarnation Romance: A frequent event in the setting due to the Solar/Lunar bond, but the Blackwood/Rinuko pair is Solar/Sidereal.
Rinuko: Last I checked, in the first age Past-you was Past-Rita's Little brother.
Rinuko: So now I'm Current-Rita's Daughter and you're like her adopted daughter or something.
Stupid Sexy *Insert Name Here*: Once by Duskor about Waves when she showed off how she looked in her dress. And then later lampshaded by Rinuko when Rita gets a branch in the face due to being distracted by Duskor bathing in a river.
