Quote of the Day

"It's all about Jubei fighting M. Bison for the body of Patroklos, and dammit, they can do it on top of the blood-soaked temple of the Sleestaks."

- Geoff Grabowski describing the essence of Exalted (quote courtesy of RPGnetter MalteseChangeling)

[It's the attitude described in the quote above that keeps me interested in Exalted. But the setting AND the mechanics both seem to get in the way of me realizing this essential awesomeness. Maybe it's because I don't get dicepools or maybe it's because I'm stuck on levels and classes, but I'd really prefer to achieve Exalted's goals via World of Synnibarr or SenZar or Lords of Creation or Arduin or Rifts. Heck, even D&D 3.5 with the lid off would do.]
