I would be interested in collaborating. I can't draw, but I have heard from others that I'm only half-bad at poetry so I might be useful.

To add, I have always wanted to do a webcomic, so I would love the oportunity.

I think Fleeger is the only one on this forum who can draw in a timely manner, but she isn't a fan of Exalted. Unless somebody hasn't shown me something, which I don't rule out.

I'm not sure how much I could do, but I might be interested.

I have some sketches to post once I either find a scanner or redo them directly on my tablet.

Still wide open to any ideas, but the seed idea I've been toying with is a casteless Lunar who spent enough time in the Wyld that he picked up some...idiosyncrasies that push him and his environment towards trope-like behavior (noir/pulp detective fiction). He's currently living the role of Bronze Spade of the Just, hard-boiled private magistrate, solving cases in Nexus.

A noble raksha, Bursar of Social Currency, fills the role of his man-hungry secretary, Miss Turtle. (Spade possesses her Heart grace, which takes the form of an employment contract).

Well, one thing right off the bat: Does it and and How?

Some of my favorite webcomics (and tv shows for that matter) had a definite ending in mind at the start. On the other hand, other really good webcomics simply developed a character and a couple of short stories to put them in before beginning. For a TV example, compare Avatar the Last Airbender with Dr Who.

Either way has its pro's and con's and are basically equal as they go. But a show needs to decide which way it wants to go quickly. Otherwise you end up like Angel Beats.

I was intending on making it a serialized case by case thing, like "The Case of the Misplaced Inkstone," so definite short term endings, but no metaplot as it were.

Something with a character like that should definitely have a couple strong, somewhat compartmentalized stories with definite endings. In webcomic time, longer, drawn-out dramas tend to poop out before properly finishing. Keychain, anyone? It had a great thing going, but Paddy O'Ruanai's wrist seems to have put it out of commission, at least for now.

I cite Runner's Universe and Ratfist as strong examples of manageable storylines that finished with dignity, rather than petering out or becoming decade-spanning monster projects. Unless of course giant projects are what you want. To me, it seems like a relatively short and sweet adventure or two would be preferable.

EDIT: Sounds good. I imagine it would be not particularly serious, or at least self-referential? Maybe even Adam West Batman-ishly campy?

I was thinking campy, yes.

I've also been messing around with a naval adventure idea; a bit more action and easier for non-Exalted fans to "get." Main problem is Lunars stink at sailing (Only two charms that really do any good), and my preliminary idea was for a Lunar captain and his crazy Twilight inventor mate.

He could have a DB navigator and instead focus on leading the crew. Take war stats and have a water-aspect to sail the ship.

A quick Idea I had was to combine the two settings: The Film-Noir Lunar picks up a case to investigate the Pirate-Lunar. It could be funny in a "while one is a crazy detctive and trying to investigate the character in a classic mystery investigation, the other is a crazy swashbuckler fighting his way across the western seas." The clashing characters might provide for some humor...

Both have their own ideas about how the world works, and both of them are flagrantly wrong.

Esp. funny would be if the PI has an artifact that vaguely resembles a banana.
