Do not believe what the scientists tell you. The natural history we know is a lie, a falsehood sold to us by wicked old men who would make the world a dull grey prison and protect us from the dangers inherent to freedom. They would have you believe our planet to be a lonely starship, hurtling through the void of space, barren of magic and in need of a stern hand upon the rudder.

Close your mind to their deception. The time before our time was not a time of senseless natural struggle and reptilian rage, but a time of myth and sorcery. It was a time of legend, when heroes walked Creation and wielded the very power of the gods. It was a time before the world was bent, a time before the magic of Creation lessened, a time before the souls of men became the stunted, withered things they are today. This is the story of that time.

Exalted is a game of epic fantasy set during the Second Age of Man, a time before our own. It is an age of magic and adventure, when heroes of legend are reborn into a time of woe. At the dawn of the First Age, the gods gave power to men that they might slay the gods' Primordial enemies. Anointed by the gods, these beings were thereafter known as the Exalted. The greatest of the Exalted were the Solars, the Chosen of the Unconquered Sun, the mightiest of the gods. So great was their power that, when a Solar died, his power was quickly made manifest in a new individual - a reincarnation of sorts, but into a mature adult rather than a newborn.

If you love anime, love worlds comprised of technology based on magic or extreme science, love convoluted plot lines, bizarre gods (think Spirited Away and you have it), demi-gods with human flaws, building your own empire, exciting combat, then you will love Exalted.

This core rulebook has everything you need to start playing as Solars, the default type, a overview of the world, and even includes rules on mass combat for when you will be leading armies into battle! It uses the storyteller system, but heavily modified, and rewards you for attempting daring stunts and heroic actions, though in the Exalted world one man's hero is another's villain...

The second edition fixes many of the problems that the first edition had, such as the clunky combat system (it now uses a tick system that determines how often you can take a turn, better than it sounds), more detailed, developed and well-rounded world, the Solar charms are alot more balanced, etc. It is the same world as first edition, though there are significant (if rather subtle) changes that have been made to make the world more consistent.
