Exalted was first published by White Wolf back in 2001 and merged some western high fantasy style with lots of anime.
In the game, characters are potent beings, chosen by a deity to fight for them. The core rules focus on the Solar Exalted, those chosen by the Unconquered Sun. As powerful as they are, Exalted are flawed as a result of a curse from their Primordial enemy, and the Solar Exalted became so corrupt that they were finally overthrown by the Terrestrial and Sidereal Exalted.
In Manual of Exalted Power: Eternals authors Karl Kloeb and Tim-Lin Sexton introduce a new type: Eternals.
How come we’ve never heard of the Eternal Exalted before? That’s the angle this Storytellers Vault book explores. The Eternals sacrificed everything to protect humankind from the Primordials, including their place in history.
However, the Eternals are forgotten and not gone. These Exalted 2/2.5 rules include suggestions on how to bring them back.
There are two types of Eternal; the Bringers of Life who are the Chosen of Wotan, and the Keepers of Death who are the Chosen of Kore. These two are linked; they’re twins.
The manual costs $18 and packs an impressive 294-pages. That’s enough space to include the complete history of the Twin Incarna, the gods of life and death and the story of the fall of their Chosen.
There are 58 soul-sharing Truths, a type of magic that’s unique to the Eternal Exalted which allows them to combine traits of several heroes to create even better champions.
