The Shadow Over Creation
The Shadow Over Creation is a campaign using Exalted 3e.
Before the rising of the Black Suns,
Before the Unhallowed Bodhisattvas birthed themselves,
Before Space and Shape and Logic were made perfect by inchoate delirium,
During that time were things called The Exalted.
During that time they called themselves mighty,
During that time they called themselves masters of the Shattered Annex.
What Follows is the story of their Ignorance.
What Follows is the story of their Folly.
What Follows is the story of their Last Days.
- Invocation of the Sutra of the First Blasphemy
Since the moment of the Yozis fall, The Broken Winged Crane has been a cancer, ever gnawing at the body and soul of Creation. The great Sorcerors of the First Age hoarded every copy far from the light of the Sun. The engineer-magi of the Shogunate razed whole cities to keep its prophets from escaping. The Wyld Hunt would dare the ruins of the Anethema to retrieve even a single page of the dread tome.
In this age of strife, however, the cancer spreads unchecked. It is growing, metastasizing into new and abhorrent forms. The Great Blasphemy draws ever closer to completion, and soon all of Creation will see the terrible glory of The Broken Winged Crane.
There will be no need for eyes after that.
