Background Information

  • The credits age included a message from Charles Spaulding:
Recently, a lot has changed in my life, and I was given the opportunity to put my own touch on Exalted. In this, I could be content, if I had not met Carey. No day goes by that I do not think of this game, yet no hour, minute, or second goes by that I do not love her. I am not as great an author as my fellows, but these are some words I am proud to have all to myself: Carey, will you marry me?
  • Carey said yes. Congratulations, Charles!
