Exigents Indiegogo is Now Live!


>>> Exigents: Out of the Ashes on Indiegogo! <<<

Exigents: Out of the Ashes is a core expansion for the Exalted tabletop roleplaying game. Exalted 3rd Edition is set in a mythic world where spirits walk openly among men, warring demigods topple kingdoms, and the restless dead roam on moonless nights. Heroes granted power by the mightiest gods war and intrigue against one another for the fate of Creation. These are the Exalted!

One of the most exciting new ideas for Exalted 3rd Edition is the introduction of new Exalts. These Exalts, known as the Exigents, take on themes and powers as diverse as the gods who create them. This book will feature a character-creation system and a guide for players to build their own custom Charm sets for whatever Exalted they feel like adding to the setting, while Exigents featured in the book will have fully finished Charm sets usable in-game.

The Exigents: Out of the Ashes deluxe edition will be an 8.5” x 11” hardcover book, featuring an enhanced foil-stamped cover with 300+ full-color interior pages. Metallic-edged pages and a ribbon bookmark will set this book as a worthy companion ...2 COMMENTS
