From Exalted - Unofficial Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Hi, I'm JavaApp. Right now I have the Sidereal Fatspalt stats for Sad Ivory. I hope to add more stats for the other NPCs in Exalted Core as time goes on.

I have been an Exalted GM for about a year. The characters are currently at 138 XP, and are already kicking far too much ass. So I hope to become a better GM, and provide appropriate and interesting challenges for them.

Sad Ivory Stats

I have been using Ed's Exalted Character generator for some time, and I am quite pleased with it. Ed's put in a lot of work, and has asked that people use his program to generate stats and export them to his web site, in order to create a bank of characters. I chose to stat up Sad Ivory.

Here's a link to his site, BTW.

My goal was to create a set of stats that is as close as possible under Sidereal fatsplat rules to the stats in the core book. Now that the character is completed, I'll post it to Ed's bank. You will need Exalted: The Sidereals and the Book of Three Circles or Savant and Sorcerer in order to use this character.

I want to thank Blaque, four willows weeping, Quendalon, SquirrelCentral, Poisson Resistance, braincraft, Odie, Katsue, YerMum and especially ReallyBored from for responding to the creation thread. Some of their comments and contributions have been incorporated below.

Background: Ahn-Aru, or Sad Ivory, was born in the eastern Threshold in the chaos following the Empress' ascension to the Imperial Manse. She was taken by the Bronze almost before her Exaltation and spent her entire early existence immersing herself in the teachings and lore of the Immaculate Order. As one Chosen by the Maiden of Endings, she was trained as an assassin and executioner first and an administrator second.

This temperament suited her well for her eventual posting as the Sidereal agent in the Scavenger Lands, just as her elders knew it would. There, in the heart of resistance to the Empress' rule, she was charged with observing events and manipulating local politics. It also fell to her to carry out the Solar Purge against any newly reborn Solars and otherwise act as the order's agent in violent matters.

Ahn-Aru has a number of securely warded apartments and towers spread through the Scavenger Lands. Protected by bound demons and hidden from sight by powerful astrological rituals, these workrooms serve as boltholes and magical workrooms. She is forever on the move and rarely lingers in one abode for more than 10 days.

Though she has a soft, almost restless demeanor, Sad Ivory is an isolated warrior-scholar who carries out her job with ruthless efficiency. Yet, her heart longs for the companionship of her peers, and she holds a position that makes the company of her fellow Exalted a rare thing. Sad Ivory has never really lived outsider her order and is strongly committed to its ideals. She exists in a world where the Prophecy and her views on it are a matter of religious faith. Her commitment to the Bronze faction is near-absolute, and she recently killed a Gold Sidereal during a Wyld Hunt - rare bloodshed indeed.

Ahn-Aru is an assassin, first and foremost. While she does have a sense of honor, and prefers to fight foes one-on-one, she is not averse to casting Travel Without Distance, activating Greater Sidereal Assassin Style on the first round in place where she can hide from the view of her victim, and then killing her victim with one blow on the second.

In order to boost her armor, she will often combine the Invulnerable Skin of Bronze spell with the astrological effect Hero's Iron Skin from The Shield.

The more challenging the opponent, the more she might be willing to indulge in more elaborate strategies in order to prolong dealing with her target. As a very lonely young woman, her victims are the most intimate contact she has.

When on scouting missions, she uses the Everywhere and Nowhere Technique from the Mask's effects. When traveling long distances she uses Poetic Sacrifice Insurance from the Ship's Wheel.

Alternate Charms and Combos
Avoidance Kata, if you want her to survive a losing confrontation with your PCs.

Orchestration of Conflict + Impeding the Flow + Smiling at the Damned: For 8 m, 2W, 1HL she makes a non-rolled melee attack with all successes on her dice. Adding Smiling at the Damned, it is 13 Motes and it does halved raw damage, but it's aggravated damage. Impeding the Flow allows a non-rolled reflexive parry.

If confronted with a foe that would not be affected by her main combo, she might train to learn Martial Arts combos, which the statistics listed above do not reflect. A simple and effective combo would be Impeding the Flow + Life Severing Blow + Metal Storm. She can reflexively spend 2 motes each for up to four automatic Damage successes and/or reflexively spend 3 motes each for up to five extra attacks in a round at her full dice pool. In addition, for 3 motes she can use a single non-rolled reflexive parry to block an attack that is not impossible to block.

Considering her age, it is certainly possible that Ahn-Aru has Sidereal Martial Arts. If you would like to add this option, Prismatic Arrangement of Creation Style is suggested. She qualifies for all of the basic charms, but none of the forms.

Comments, corrections and additions are welcome. Please note that I have not formated the stats, because I am a Wiki novice, and just wanted to get the imformation posted first. Thanks! - JavaApp


Use the <br> tag to create line breaks.

My quick scan picked up a couple nitpicky errors: Sad Ivory doesn't have brown eyes; no Sidereal Exalted does. Since she's Chosen of Saturn, her eyes are purple. She's also not 300 years old (no matter what Lilith says), unless we posit that "the chaos following the Empress' ascension to the throne" lasted for more than 400 years -- which is a real stretch. _Ikselam

Thanks, Ikselam. I don't think I was expecting any coment or help today, though I suppose ugly formating is grating to look at. I made some changes to eye color and age, based on your comments - JavaApp
