Joshua Kashinsky and I are going to very quickly playtest my letter-writing game, While You're Far Away
, using characters from an Exalted game we played over IRC a while back.
The relevant chararacters are:
- Saadi Draught-of-Reason
- Ivory Veil
The situation between these two characters should become clear as the game goes on. I think that even people with no knowledge of Exalted or our particular mini-campaign should be able to enjoy it.
I'll let Joshua introduce his character as he likes. Here's mine:
Saadi Draught-of-Reason comes from a well-respected Dragonblood family (Air/Water aspected) in Chiaroscuro. He is a black sheep not merely because he constantly gets into trouble, but because he is also Anathema (as a newly reincarnated Solar Exalted) and his family has sworn to kill him. Saadi has a bunch of leaping- and throwing-related Charms (read: magical powers) and his most prized possessions are a magical atlatl that throws endless spearbolts made of pure essence, a.k.a. Dire Tidings, and one (yes, ONE) God-Kicking Boot. The circumstances under which he acquired the boot and/or lost the other one are up for speculation.
