    Default [Exalted] What alternative systems have you used?

    Not in the subforum because this is multi-system/non-native system.

    For every person who enjoys Exalted and likes the system, it seems there is another who likes the setting and hates the system. For every other one of those, there's someone with their own conversion to their favourite system.

    So what have you used instead of the Storyteller mechanics? How did it go? How did you handle Charms?

    I'm working on an adaptation to Strands of Fate, approaching completion.

    I've found "In a Wicked Age" functions surprisingly well for Exalted with absolutely no alterations or homebrew required. Not only have I played multiple sessions with uniformly great success in the past, it's the system my group still uses when we do play Exalted (which isn't terribly often, as they don't have quite the love of Creation that I do).

    I've seen a FATE system-conversion used to great effect. I believe it can be found somewhere on RPG.net.
    Thanks to Andraste for the Void avatar.
    My surviving Exalted homebrew can be found here.

    I've got one linked in my OP (though that's Strands rather than SotC/SBA/DFPRG).

    Has anybody found a system that can properly handle Charm trees?

    If you use a blood-based McGuffin in a campaign with a vampire PC, plan for what will happen when said PC sticks it in his mouth.

    shrug, Exalted worked fine for us.

    Depends what you mean. As far as I'm concerned the best thing to do with them, as with any tiered complexity, is to collapse them.

    What does everyone think about the idea of performing character creation and experience point advancement using the Exalted system, to ascertain the exact concrete capabilities and advancements of the characters, and then using a super light barely-not-freeform system like Primetime Adventures for the actual conflict resolution, using the Exalted character sheets as guidelines?
