First edition rulebook for the Exalted RPG. From the back of the book:
Before there was a World of Darkness, there was an age of savage adventure.
The Realm of the Dragon-Blooded stands astride the ruins of the First Age - an invincible colossus.
For millennia, its Scarlet Empress kept her fist clenched around the windpipe of the world.
Now, the Empress is no more, and the Realm spirals closer to chaos and civil war with each passing day.
Into this time of strife come the Solar Exalted, heroes of legend reborn into a time of woe.
Will these living legends herald the return of the Golden Age or the end of Creation?
What legends will they tell of your deeds?
