I have Exalted, never played. The way it works is you buy “moves” with XP over time to go in your repertoire. Each move has a number of segments it takes to execute. Initiative only matters at the beginning of the fight – then Its all about the moves you use.
One guy could get in three real quick rabbit punches while another winds up for a huge finishing move.
I’m still trying to figure out the logistics of the 12+ hour drive, but I’m thinking we’ll leave sometime Wednesday and be in during the wee hours of Thursday. I don’t want to miss anything, you see. I may have to have you guys come physically drag me out of the bed and chuck me in the shower with a pot of coffee, cigarette and stale danish from the hotel lobby.
So far all I’ve got in mind are the Low Life game, the Oithling panel thing, Wap’s X-wing ruckus and possibly the Ghostbusters International game. I’ll take another look at the schedule once I’ve actually got a badge number and such.
I’m down for a meetup, of course. Also, since my wife will be with me, I’m sure some manner of bar hijinks may be in order after hours. We don’t get out much these days, y’see.
The shirts was the argument against incognito. Ah well, I will figure out who you guys are eventually, wapcaplets will be the annoyed guy who’s room I am invading, Crudeboy will be the one with they wife, and you Thom will be the one shoving a beer in my hand.
Unless I get a hair cut, I will be the one who’s head is a passable imitation of a brown cotton ball.
