Dude, this is awesome! I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for some quotes. Too bad I didn't have the foresight to copy stuff from before Exalted was released. There was some awesome things said back then... ~Mailanka

Gaw-damn, this was a lot of writing. And I edited it for format, too. Damn, I'm a nice guy! !Domino

You sure are a nice guy, Domino! ^_^ Thanks! -- BrokenShade

I'd like to add that many, many of these quotes are only in my personal collection thanks to the diligence of jpcardier. I think. Domino

This is great! However, I miss the quote about the combo of Tornado Offense and Air Dragon Signature Weapon. Clebo

I am adding an absolute boatload of quotes from late 2001/early 2002 that I had archived on HD, on the theory that if I found it interesting enough to save, other people will probably find it interesting too. Also, I split up the "Other" section a bit, because it was way too large. --MF

Say, are there any official changes to weapon stats for people who otherwise aren't using the Power Combat rules? I've always thought the Lightning Torment Hatchets were Underpowered/Overpriced. -- DODurden
