Born in Splendor Sophisticated, decadent, cruel and fabulously wealthy, the Dragon-Blooded are
spiritually akin to the Elemental Dragons themselves and are Exalted above the mass of humanity.
Through their bloodlines, these queens and princes of Creation control all of the world that's worth
owning. Yet dark times are at hand for the Realm, and the kingdom teeters on the brink of civil war.
Will the golden empire survive its first succession crisis? Born to Rule The first in a series of
hardbacks making the other types of Exalted available for play. Exalted: The Dragon-Blooded
includes extensive detail on the world and society of the Terrestrial Exalted, as well as full rules for
creating and playing Dragon-Blooded characters. Inside is everything needed to portray these
warlike aristocrats, from guides to their manners to systems for the supernatural martial arts
practiced by the Immaculate Order.

All in all, I'm enjoying the 'recasting' of Exalted, and this book is no exception. This book greatly
expands on the first edition book, and with the Realm setting shunted off into a companion volume
(Compass of Celestial Directions 1: the Blessed Isle), the extra room is well-used in presenting
Dragon-Blooded society, along with great ideas on how to run a DB-based campaign, as well as
how to leverage DB's in a Solar-based campaign.
The charmset or "cool powers" of this book suffers from being written for a prototype 2E and was
not actually written for the Second Edition Exalted as sold to players. This has been fixed with
recent errata, but they *reprinted* the book without fixing some serious issues.The "fluff" of Dragon
Blood's origins is more thoroughly explained than in 1st edition. However, much of the Realm
specific DB info is not included in this book, unlike in 1E. Instead, you now need to buy the
Compass of Celestial Directions: The Blessed Isle.The storytelling section is quite good, and they
do emphasize the strong difference in the feel of the game players and ST's will experience.Overall,
I think this is a half decent product, certainly use-able, but for certain charms players need to create
their own house-rules or print off the errata. 3 stars is my final grade.
All you need to know to play a Dragon Blooded exalt in White Wolfs exalted. Must own the core rule
book to make a full game but provides a great background on the Blessed isle.
Ok somehow the guys and girls at white wolf already know how to do excellent books and superb
things. This is a great book. The first edition also was excellent but this second edition rulebook is
AWESOME.Full of great charms, rules, animas even better, more things to do and have.The story is
full of possibilties, every House is great and all trademark characters have been redefined.
WOAW.A must have. Trust me.Worth every cent! [or pesos]
