BNF: Xarak/CharacterGenerator

To just generate a concept, you can use BNF: Xarak/CharacterConceptGenerator

This generates a basic character concept for Exalted. Hopefully the random aspect will produce some original ideas that you could use to develop a character around.
Added more options, including the ability to be a demon, spirit or ghost, and changed the balance somewhat; you're now more likely to be a DB Dynast. Also planning to add a name generator. -- Xarak

I rolled up an interesting random assortment, so I thought I'd make a character summary based on it, because I've got nothing else to do right now.../GreenSkyKiss

Ronin Sidereals - yeah. There are three that exist in Creation. Amyra is one. It's not a common thing for a storyteller to allow. Oh, and - nice generator. I like. --Requiem
True, but I thought a Beureau Sidereal who was a "nihilist motivated only by money" or something would be kicked out long ago. Thanks btw. -- Xarak
Let's see, what egregious Sidereals have I seen outside of silly interludes? :thinks: Airheaded hedonist, paranoid conspirator looking for a conspiracy, suicidal sociopath, sadistic disease enthusiast, man whose only pleasure is hitting things with sticks... I reckon that pretty well all the personalities you've written fit in the Bureau. Just because in Candle, the Sidereals were very good at hiding their sociopathic tendencies doesn't mean that they're all paragons of virtue. And you have to be very, very, very lucky (and possibly have powerful backing) in order to avoid being recruited by the Bureau. --Requiem
I presume the non-obvious one is Syrtis' Sifu? And I don't know whether to be proud or slightly ashamed that my character missed that list. --CH
Yeah, Tirtel is the evil one. Syrtis is being a rebel by being nice to people. I realised he was actually better at martial arts than his position required, so I had to explain it somehow... --Requiem
Point taken. Syrtis wasn't kicked out when he went all gothy...so you can now roll up a Bureau sidereal. -- Xarak

Xarak - assuming I get some RoundTuits, would you mind if I adjusted this to make sure that the Exalt's chosen weapon was consistent with the martial skills generated, when it's used? At the moment it's possible to (say) get someone who wields a seven-section staff with no Martial Arts. --CH
Sure, go ahead! -- Xarak
