Long forgotten by the people of Creation, the inventor of Exaltation still lives and slumbers behind ancient seals. His body is a vast industrial miracle, populated by the descendants of refugees and abductees from the First Age. These Autochthonians have established eight mighty nations, empowered the Alchemical Exalted as their champions, and mastered secrets of mystical artifice long lost to Creation. But now their god and world is dying in the dark of Elsewhere, casting the Eight Nations into the crucible. Will the innovation and prowess of the Alchemical Exalted be sufficient to save Autochthonia, or is a return to Creation the Great Maker's only hope?
This book includes:
• Details on each of the Eight Nations of Autochthonia, the oldest surviving human
cultures in the world of Exalted.
• An examination of the Reaches-the untamed body of a Primordial-and the mortals who carve out a living in that deadly frontier far from the safety of the Eight Nations.
• Traits for Autochthonia's storied heroes, mechanical denizens, and Exalted legends.
