Here we're gonna discuss Exalted, my current favorite RP setting... Oh by the way, if and when I do make it to the con this June... y'all are playing fucking Exalted...

So the premise of the world is a mix of Korean Historical Drama, Classical Mythology, and Over the Top Anime... Before there was anything that mattered, there was the Wyld. THat's all there was... the Wyld is pure idea/creative force... anything can exist there but not for long, because everything is mutable.. The Fair Folk lived there... led by their nobility, the Raksha. Then the Primordials came and made form... They were beings of near limitless power each of them composed of multiple souls. They were fickle and prone to Chaos almost as much as the Fair Folk, but they wanted to make something damnit... and they did. THey formed Creation.. a flat world with five poles.

In the Center of Creation was the Elemental Pole of Earth... with a great mountain, surrounded by an inland sea. To the North.. the Elemental Pole of Ice... the further north one goes, the closer to the Wyld they get, and the more like the element the surroundings become, ergo the north eventuall become nothing but ice before melting into the Wyld. To the East- Wood, Fire to the South, and Water to the East.

Once they had Creation, the Primordials created life... including humanity. But they decided they couldn't be bothered running things, and so the Primordials created thousands of Gods and Spirits to oversee Creation in a Giant Cellestial Beuracracy. Then the Primordials went back to Yu-Shan.. the heavens above, to play the Games of Divinity and leave the task or running things to the gods....

Things didn't stay that way for long however. When the Primordials DIDN'T play the Games of Divinity they would come to Creation and wreak havoc. Eventually the gods grew tired of it all... working only to see their masters destroy half of what they had done... they were also jealous... they coveted the Games of Divinity and so they conspired to overthrow the Primordials....

Problem. The Gods were specifically Geased to be unable to directly oppose the Primordials... and so they thought up a plan. More details later... Discuss.
