Welcome to my homebrew directory topic. This is the place where I post words I make, which you are free to use such words for your own game or promptly ignore them and call me a qwack.

All of my work is intended to be isolated from other works whenever possible. What this means is that you can pick up and use anything in this document without having to reference another homebrew document I or someone else made. This means you don't need homebrews X, Y, and Z to get a full working experience. You can pick X, Y, or Z by themselves and it should work just fine.

So long as you do not intend to use any of my work for profit (That is anything that generates money for whatever purpose) and give credit to me you may use my material in whatever way you please without having to ask. If you wish to post any of the material I have made in the Storyteller's Vault, then you will need my express written permission to do so.


3e
Artifacts
Spoiler

Close Combat
  • Galaxia (Artifact 5, Orichalcum/Soulsteel Daiklave): A daiklave that combines the crushing power of a singularity combined with the power and fury of a star.
  • Heartflame (Artifact 4 Orichalcum Daiklave): A small conversion of the daiklave presented in the 3e leak. A stereotypical golden paladin sword that calls out your inner power.
  • Sanzu River Scythe: Komachi's Scythe from Touhou, features themes of distance manipulation, the Underworld, and eventually an infinite range attack.

  • Spring Razor (Artifact 4 Green Jade Daiklave): An upgrade of the Spring Razor in the 3e Exalted Corebook to match current evocation design principles done in Arms.
  • Volcano Cutter (Artifact 5, Orichalcum/Red Jade Grand Daiklave): Remake of the one in the Corebook, encourages one to quickly build up for powerful effects to unleash in a fight before unleashing a super attack. You can erupt a volcano without spending 200 turns now!
Ranged
  • Hunting Hawk: Rewrite of the Hunting Hawk from the core. Calls out a hawk as an attunement effect, assuming a multitude of roles that makes it a solid pick for anyone.
  • The Patient Horizon: An artifact Powerbow channeling the power of the Earth and your inner sniper. Snipe people through buildings for massive damage on the horizon!

Armour (Modern)
  • Zero Requiem (Artifact 5 Orichalcum Heavy Plate): A heavy power armour for Twilights that focuses on using the greatest weapons of all: Your brain and narrative control. Make things go just as planned.
Firearms (Modern)
  • 1337 Sniper: A sniper rifle that focuses around the themes of MLG gaming. From corporate sponsorship, no scoping, to headshotting.
  • Excavator Bazooka: A white jade Bazooka focused around themes of terrain modification piercing through the hides of diamond-hard enemies.
  • Frost Witch: A heavy beam cannon that saps your foes vitality with the chill of winter, fire out freezing blasts of ice that immobilize, and even shatter your opponent into pieces.

Resistance
Spoiler
Ex3 Soak and Resistance Overhaul - A Solar Resistance rewrite to go along with a rewrite of how soak works in 3e to allow one to become a tank without slowing the game down to an absolute crawl. The charms in the rewrite can work without the soak revamp, but will work best with it.

Spoiler
Solar War Revamp - A rewrite that seeks to both streamline Solar War, provide functionality for war outside of battle groups, and provide some higher essence war charms for Supernal users.


Universal
Universal charms are designed to be charms for anything. Spirit, Exalt, or anything else. Universal charms aim to provide a solid backbone for other areas to build off of and are excellent if you are making your own Exigent. The index for all Universal charms (and assorted subsystems) can be found here.

Universal charms contain both Dragonblooded and Solar versions of charms. So you can think of this as a Dragonblooded revamp as well.

Dragonblooded

Modern
Spoiler
3e Modern Dragonblooded charms - This document contains the Modern charms from Shards of the Exalted Dream translated into 3e for Dragonblooded. Charms for vehicles, firearms, and hacking exist in this document. Hacking is largely modern specific, but since the Drive and Firearms charms are just expansions of Ride and Archery respectively even Vanilla setting Dragonblooded could make use of some of these charms.


Monsters
Spoiler
  • Ex3 Monster Guide 2: Smokin' Sexy Style - A sequel to my past monster guide. Contains a little bit of every type of creature one can find in Creation, but also provides templates for a wide degree of creatures, giving people the ability to stat weak essence 2 fodder to mighty essence 8 earth shaking titans. Makes use of both Qualities and new Template charms (universal charms that come with a variety of options to increase or decrease a creature's power).

  • 3e Qualities - A collection of abilities for NPC's. Useful for both disposable minons to world ending terrors.
  • 3e Ventures - A porting of the Exalted Essence Venture subsystem to Ex3 mechanics. Used in my Solar charm revamp project
  • Dance of Fates - A complete revamp of the Willpower System and how influence works in 3e, but still being largely compatible with most of the current written social magic in the game. Includes Solar Integrity rewrite.

By the name I am guessing you are the same Sandact6 that has posted stuff on the Exalted subreddit? I have looked at some of your work and definitely agree that dodge needed something more than it had in the core.

Same person. Most of my stuff is on the OPP forums, but I'll be migrating it here as well.

And yea the core charms have aged poorly. It's why I'm revamping a lot of them.
