Exalted is one of the few games that occupy a curious spot in my gaming life. For one thing, I love the setting, and all the strange and wonderful things in it. On the other hand, the system makes me wish that I was still back in school, when I had the time and luxury to actually commit brain cells into storing all the Charm mechanics without going insane.
All my previous experiences with Exalted have been heavily tinged with Anime influences. While Anime (and Manga) are definitely a big source of inspiration to the game itself, I’m starting to consider a different spin to it based on the rest of the books mentioned in the recommended media section of the Exalted 2nd Edition Corebook.
