From Exalted - Unofficial Wiki
I've split crafts into three categories:
- Mundane Crafts(Fire, Earth, Air, etc.),
- First Age Crafts (Magitech, Elsewhere, Permanence, etc.), and
- Exotic Crafts (Fate, Pandemonium, Necrosurgery, etc.)
Mundane Crafts may have any number of specialties attached, above and beyond the normal three dot limitation. However, only three dots may be used on any roll. First Age Crafts are limited to three dots total of specialties, Ever, so choose wisely. Exotic Crafts are judged on a per Craft basis, starting with Mundane rules. Use of artifacts to enhance Craft Specialties are counted as Artificial Specialties and are permanent and unchangeable after XP has been spent.

Several Charms are being used in play along with these Crafts and I figured I'd mention them:
