Across the Blankets October 26, 2007Posted by Conrad Hubbard in : Poetry , 1 comment so far
In the morning, when I wake up,
I want to look across the blankets
of our bed and see the girl I love,
and I want to say “I love you”
and I want to hear it back,
but I want to hear it
come back to me
in a way that makes me know
that she loves me the same way
that I love her.
Coming back to me,
across the blankets.

Glorious Divinities played by You October 1, 2007Posted by Conrad Hubbard in : RPGs , 1 comment so far
I can’t reveal too much about this, because the book isn’t out yet. Nonetheless, I just recently let the volunteer Storytellers that help run the Exalted moderated RPG chat at White Wolf know that the release of The Books of Sorcery, vol. IV—The Roll of Glorious Divinity 1 would introduce rules sufficient for players to actually play gods in Exalted. One of the venues from that chat focuses upon the city of Great Forks, and is designed as a “chronicle venue” (that is, it is meant to have a climactic end at some point). The reason I previewed this particular hint about the upcoming book was that I want to experiment with letting players actually play gods in the Great Forks venue there. Of course the venue’s standard rule that each player may only play one Essence-using character in the Great Forks venue still stands. The rules from Glorious Divinity 1 are scalable, and I plan to scale starting spirit characters to the starting Exalt level, with Essence 2 plus whatever they can buy with bonus points.
So, if you want to play a god in the world of Exalted, stay tuned for the release of Roll of Glorious Divinity 1, and check out the moderated Exalted RPG chat at White Wolf’s website. The Roll of Glorious Divinity 1 is currently scheduled to release in late October 2007, and may be ordered through the White Wolf online store.
