Exalted is a game with great scope as there are different types of Exalted and then sub-types within those categories. The main characters, introduced by the core rules, are Solar Exalted who have potentially huge levels of power and, in theory, try to do good.

What does having Exalted in the Storytellers Vault mean?
Publishers who create Exalted campaigns, new monsters, NPCs and similar can publish to OneBookShelf’s system. OBS run the DM’s Guild for Wizards of the Coast very successfully. The DM’s Guild is the only place to pick up the Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron.
Publishers keep 50% of the revenue on book sales and set the price themselves. The other 50% is divided between White Wolf and OBS for licensing fees, marketing and other benefits of being part of the go-to-place for extra White Wolf goodies such as templates and art packs.
The hope is that this creates more products of quality that Exalted fans, new and old, want to buy.
