White Wolf Wiki

Compass of Terrestrial Directions Vol. 1: The Scavenger Lands is a sourcebook for Exalted Second Edition, the last in an open-ended series.


From the White Wolf Catalog:
The Confederation of Rivers
Forged from the shattered remains of the Dragon-Blooded Shogunate and tempered in the fires of war, the so-called Scavenger Lands continue to stand in defiance of the tyranny of the Realm, as they have done for eight centuries. Ranging from mighty Lookshy in the west to the eclectic Hundred Kingdoms in the east, the states of the former River Province offer a treasure trove of First Age wonders, minor dominions and mortal followers for the returned Solar Exalt willing to risk the wrath of the Seventh Legion to claim them.
