If you wish to join the game, do the following:

  1. Fill out the spoilered questionaire on your potential character(s). If you don't know something, you can leave it blank
  2.  If playing a Celestial Exalt, have a secondary Dragonblooded Concept. If the game grows too Celestial Heavy, we will switch to all Dragonblooded to make things fair.
  3. Create a Ex2 character based on starting character rules. Use the 2.5 Adjusted Character Creation in Scroll of Errata pg. 7. Post a pdf of the character sheet linked to google drive or some other cloud storage. You can use an Anathema Character Sheet or one of Mr. Gone's Interactive PDFs.
