This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

You got the merit wrong.  The first merit is your concept of the old world which you got right.  The second merit is your concept in the new world.  The last merit is your special talent, equipment, or whatever.

Edit: Skills are also wrong.  They can't be higher than 30.  You have skills that is 40 and 35 so they need to be reduce.  Also you got some skills that could be used to increase some of your stats.  Your leadership of 25 increases your followers by 2 if you want it to.

May I also suggest you get one follower to heft some of your gear.  Right now your at full capacity which means you can move 5 yards per phase instead of the usual 10 yards.  I mean if your just a normal beat cop why do you have a shotgun and sniper rifle?

Thinking on it your first merit would be Beat Cop of (city name) and your third merit should be your car.

Ok I didn't know I could start with a follower... The reason for the different types of weapons, is for the different situations One might come across... I envision the Sniper Rifle just staying in the car...unless It's needed... But 'IF' Roan is the only Law and order around now, he has to wear alot of hats... As far as the 2nd Merit, Since I'm unfamilar with the system could you pick one?

Well it is more of a setting effect.  Basicly every thing of the old world that survived eventually changes.  What they change to depends on you.  You really got unlimited options here.  You could go from beat cop to a flying whale for all we know.

My advice is think super heroes, fantasy characters, sci-fi characters, and so on.

What about Merit 2, is That I'm a vampire now, and have to gain followers by Biting them and making them into Vampires? Is this kinda the lines you're talking about?

Sure the vampire idea can work well.

Today isn't a good day for chat for me.

Allright so Merit 2 - is Vampire ... Maybe something to the effect that this new dimension is a Mirror of a former life that you once were, or a future life that you would become... and thats why when Roan came into this World he had a hunger for Blood and an aversion to Sunlight, Silver, Garlic, wooden stakes.... etc.

It is more like a mutation.  Has really nothing to do with the character, but he did change to that none of the less.  So yes your character became a mind controlling leech against his own will.  Kinda sucks for him as he has to deal with that fact.

This is cool, have you also tried to get some interest at Rpg.net? Just curious? Otherwise I think you should start an IC thread because It doesn't look like were getting too much more interest here....

Given all the things I said about what the developers are doing with Exalted I would probably be ban within the day to be honest.  The dev/moderators are touchy on that subject.

Though I will make that IC thread.  Are you sure you don't know anyone that may want to try this out?  I don't mind going in with one player, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to ask.
