Missive from Thousand Clever Whispers
Honored Elders,

The rumors we have heard are true. The Chosen of the Unconquered Sun again walk Creation. I have seen them. I have spoken with them. I have witnessed their might.

We must take heed.

The Terretrial Court of the Eight Hills is broken, razed by an attack of infernal origin. Of the Court's original Council, only Subrihan Wind-Tiger, God-General of Asherta and myself survive intact. The others of the Council are undone and even now lick their wounds in their Sanctums. The Gods of the region are now in chaos and, at the heart of this chaos, is a newly reborn Circle of Solar Exalted.

I am unclear on how to proceed. While Subrihan is now indebted to me for formally challenging the ridiculous claim of the Hircine Hoplomoch to my role in the Court of the Eight Hills as patron of the Raiton-folk, what has transpired since greatly troubles me. I believe that the growing power of the Hircine Hoplomoch, who should be nothing but a Little God in these parts, is the result of outside influence. In addition to summoning Malfean troops to lay waste to the Gods of the Eight Hills Court, an unknown assailant also used a long-forgotten toxin called 'Eclipse Tide Venom' to poison the Solars.

I suspect another of the Chosen works from hiding to manipulate these events, for only one of the Exalted would have both knowledge of ancient venoms and the power to summon demons in numbers. He is cunning to manipulate such events. But, then again, so am I.

It is my intention to find the one responsible for these events. To this end, I now ingratiate myself with the Solars and their Terrestrial servant. I watch them closely, as I watch Subrihan and the other Gods. The master of these plans is a threat to Creation and the Silver Pact. Wherever he hides, he cannot long escape Luna's gaze and, when he missteps, I will unmake him.

As it was, as it is, as it always shall be ... those who traffic with demons shall be sent to dwell among them.

I request your leave to continue pursuing this matter.

May Your Revered Eyes Shine with Luna's Wisdom Always

Your servant and messenger,

What would an Exalted Chronicle be without a cover, I ask you?

The City-States of the Hills
Tucked in to the hills that flank the Tamas River, the City-States of the Hills are known for their strident independence, their interactions with the Guild and their often-unique (some say heretical) systems of government, which often include gods or Exalts in some fashion.

The City of Chiaroscuro
Population 950,000
Called the Great City of Glass, Chiaroscuro is quite definitive. In the First Age, it was a city of tall glass spires, the glass of which was as hard as steel and shimmered in the Southern sun in a thousand hues. In its towers lived a population of some 20 million souls.

The Mattahuk Alliance
The hillsides around Mattahuk, the lands near the sea, are much less impressive than in the rest of the Great Hills area. The Mattahuk Alliance is less a true nation and more of a confederation of city-states. The ruler of each sits on the Mattahuk Council, a gathering hosted by the Mattahuk Court, a Terrestrial Court in the area. The primary concern of the Alliance is to protect the area from Delzahn invaders and ensure some kind of alliance in order to keep outside influence like the Guild from seizing too much power obliquely.

Varang City-States
The Varang City-States are on a wide, wind-swept plain. The Varangian Plains are well-known for their incredible summer storms, which sweep in from out of the wild prairie, on thunderheads the size of mountains.

Alom Vilag
Alom Vilag is a small Southern nation located on the coast between Chiaroscuro and the border of the Varang City-States. This nation is known for two things: its fine porcelains and its rich purple dye. Its potters take the kaolin clay from the Razek cliffs that separate Alom Vilag from Chiaroscuro to craft the fine porcelain that is sold as far off as Nexus and the Imperial City. Likewise, its coasts boast the rare murex conch, which are used to make a fine purple dye coveted through Creation.

The Great Southern Hills
The place called the Great Southern Hills stretches from the coast to the end of the hills, just before the deserts of the South begin, and from the Varang City-States in the east to the Mattahuk Alliance in the west.

The biggest cities in the area are Chiaroscuro, Vilag City (the capital of Alom Vilag) and Yane (the capital of the Varang City-States).

The City of Asherta
Asherta
Population 175,000
The city-state of Asherta is known as the City of the Tiger, the Vale of War and the Last Stand. Asherta's main industry is war: there are several fine military academies (among the best in the South), mercenary companies, schools of martial arts and fighting, and fine craftsmen who can provide the finest in gear for large numbers of fighters.

New Beginnings
Hey, folks.

Inaugural post to get things started, you know.

In the next couple of days, I'll be posting some stuff about the area in which we'll be playing, as well as some photos and stuff to help capture the "feel" of the game.

I'll probably also post little NPC descriptions and other useful stuff.
