'''''Exalted''''' is a [[TabletopGames tabletop RPG]] by WhiteWolf set in a mythic fantasy world known as Creation. The player characters are the Exalted, epic heroes and demigods blessed with cosmic power to reshape the world to their will. There are many established kinds of Exalted, each one chosen by a different god, [[OurTitansAreDifferent titan]], or cosmic force, and each one with a different role.

'''The Solar Exalted''', the ''Lawgivers'', Chosen by the Unconquered Sun, are celestial powerhouses who have the potential to be masters of all they put their mind to. Their powers grant superhuman skill and ability, from cutting down mountains with a single swordstroke to jumping into the clouds to seducing entire cities. In the First Age of the ancient past, the Lawgivers were rulers of the world.

'''The Lunar Exalted''', ''Stewards of Creation'', Chosen of Luna, are shapeshifting infiltrators and guardians of the world, boon companions and mates to the Solars. With powers that draw on mercurial shapeshifting and bestial power, the Stewards are the most adaptable and unpredictable of the Exalted. As of 3E, they are waging a centuries-long war against the Sidereals.

'''The Terrestrial Exalted''', the ''Dragon-Blooded'', Chosen of the Five Elemental Dragons, are a race of superhuman soldiers who wield elemental powers. The Dynasts are the only Exalts who can pass their powers down to their children, and are at their best when cooperating in large groups.

'''The Sidereal Exalted''', ''Viziers to the Lawgivers'', Chosen of the Five Maidens, oversee Fate itself, and make sure that gigantic Creation-wrecking disasters do not come to pass. The Viziers wield bizarre and esoteric magic, weave fates, and are masters of cosmic kung-fu.

'''The Abyssal Exalted''', the ''Deathknights'', Chosen of Oblivion, are world-killing weapons destined to destroy Creation. Their masters are the Deathlords, ghostly servants of the dead Primordial deities, the Neverborn. The Deathknights are dark mirrors of the Solar Exalted, created by the Neverborn from Solar Exaltations they were able to capture after the Solars were overthrown. [[BlessedWithSuck And if they dare to rebel, their lives start sucking]]. ''[[TraumaCongaLine Really badly.]]'' (This ranges from a minor supernatural marking... to the mortal they care most about dying. And Death isn't cheap in Exalted.)

'''The Infernal Exalted''', the ''Green Sun Princes'', Chosen of the Yozis, wield the power of the Primordial titans who created reality and were defeated by the Exalted at the dawn of history. Created from the Yozis' share of the stolen Solar Exaltations. Leaders of the Reclamation, the Yozis' plot to escape Malfeas (Hell) and return to the world, the Green Sun Princes might free their masters -- or they might become a new pantheon of titans all on their own. [[CursedWithAwesome They get MUCH more leniency then their Abyssal counterparts from their Yozi masters, and it's entirely possible for them to slip the leash completely.]] (Third edition information on the Infernals indicates that they will be changed significantly, with "living alien invasion" being suggested as one possible description. Details remain sketchy.)

'''The Alchemical Exalted''', ''Champions of the State'', created by the self-exiled Primordial Autochthon, are machine demigods, forged from magical materials and imbued with the souls of heroes past. With Charms that take the form of magitech implants in their bodies, the Champions defend the mortals who live within the world-body of Autochthon from the corruption and blight that poisons the sick titan.

'''The Liminal Exalted''', or ''Chernozem'', like the Abyssals, are associated with reanimation and corpses, and are said to be ghost hunters and sorcerer-exorcists, caught between the realms of death and life. They come to be when someone attempts one of the few truly impossible feats in Creation: bringing back the dead. On rare occasion, the fervor of these attempts reach into the Underworld and attract the attention of the Dark Mother. Something rises, but not the one who died...

'''The Getimian Exalted,''' are Exalted apparently "drawn from stillborn destinies" and act as agents in a war against the Sidereals. Their charmsets are heavily tied to alchemy, as well as the yin-and-yang principle, and they are led in said war by a rogue Sidereal named Rakan Thulio. Their Exaltations are created by an as-yet-unrevealed figure "of godlike power", though not necessarily ''a'' god, and their name carries connotations of time.

'''The Exigents,''' are champions of their individual patron spirit, and do not share a common charmset. In times of crisis, a god may petition Heaven for permission to create their own unique Exalt. The process demands a sacrifice from the god, however, and may drain the very life from a weak deity (powerful ones can create several Exigents), so such a deity must be careful who they choose. As an example, an Exigent created from the power of a harvest god would be known as the Chosen of the Harvest, and have harvest-themed abilities. (The Exigence, the divine fire that empowers them, is a form of Exaltation; consequently they are not 'Exigent Exalts' but rather 'Exigents'.)

Confused? You're not the first. Fortunately, the website Scribd has several extensive [[http://www.scribd.com/collections/3319192/Exalted?page=3 free samples]] of both editions' sourcebooks, both of which explain the game rather better than one page of text can.

Third Edition is coming [[ScheduleSlip close to completion]] and should be out soon-[[TemptingFate within 2015 is one estimate]]. There was a leak in June, 2014 of the playtest though it was in a highly incomplete, non-final state. A second leak happened in early 2015 of a pre-layout text.
