My Entries in the Lexicon of Elder Days

The Lexicon is my absolute favourite thing on ExaltedWiki. It's kind of dead now, but it had a good run. It's a CommunalProject intended to create new setting information, specifically about the First Age. I've had a lot of fun with it, I think a lot of the content is really amazing, and I fully intend to finish the whole alphabet one of these days (one to go!).

I think I like the middle / later stuff better. And while I like almost all my entries with few reservations, my favourite is probably either Dreaming Steel or Old Jin.

The Lady Speaks

Shataina, Lady of Legends, has lent her prodigious knowledge to the compilers of the Lexicon of Elder Days.

Of this, the goddess says: "It is not my business to pass judgment, although sometimes I am known to. What I do here, I do under the aegis of my domain; and I shall not lie, but nor shall I attempt to correct any assumptions my readers and listeners may make, based upon my telling of the tale. This is the nature of stories."
