So, I’ve recently become very interested in the RPG ‘Exalted’. I got the core book and most of the supplements, and started applying for games on RPOL.net. I’ve managed to get into about six or seven of them, and, save one, each has fallen apart before any action has occurred.
Thinking that it may just be the nature of play-by-post, I tried to run a tabletop version of the game while converting much of it into a simpler rules format (Mutants and Masterminds), but it really didn’t ‘take’. This, however, could be my gaming group.
Hoping that the third (eighth) time is a charm, I’ve finally started putting together another group, and we’ll be using the actual exalted rules.
Saying I’m a bit gunshy about this is a small understatement. I really want to run an enjoyable game that works well and will continue for a while.
So, anyone out there actually have a sustained game of this running? Or can anyone advise me what -not- to do with the game? Assume a relatively new GM for the genre, but a very experienced one in general (I started GMing 30 years ago), and players who’ve likely never even looked at the game, much-less played it.
