Exalted returns to the Scarlet Dynasty with the Dragon-Blooded hardback for Third Edition. This book gives all the material needed to play a scion of the Realm and the mechanics needed for the Dragon-Blooded, while also brushing alongside a few smaller Terrestrial nations, including old favorites the Forest Witches and the new hotness, the Indian-inspired nation of Prasad. (Fuller details on these groups should appear in the companion book, Heirs to the Shogunate.)
All in all, I was impressed with this book, in large part because it has no major flaws. What Fire Has Wrought has much better art than the last book Exalted released, having apparently worked out some of the kinks in their process and gotten a much higher average quality out of their partner studio. The mechanics are usable and solid. Most importantly the Realm now seems like a real place and a real matriarchy, with a culture and mores that aren't just our own repeated in a place where they don't belong.
I'm prepared to call this book a spectactular success.
[5 of 5 Stars!]
