Opening the Mind’s Gate, What Is Exalted?

Welcome to the Systematic Understanding of Everything – an Exalted Podcast! In our first episode, hosts Monica and Chazz walk through what Exalted is and how you can get started playing it.Exalted is a high-energy game in a decidedly non-Western setting where you play one of the most powerful entities in all of Creation. In the core book, you were fashioned as a human weapon to kill those who created the gods but your destiny is again in your hands.
