Table role play Exalted is in the process of being developed into a television show. the UK production company Jenkins & Tate has announced that they were working on a live adaptation of the tabletop role-playing game Exalted, which was originally published by White Wolf Publishing, the maker of Vampire: The Masquerade and other Dark World Games. the Exalted The television show will be developed “alongside” Paradox Interactive, the video game publisher that owns White Wolf Publishing and its game portfolio.
In Exalted, players create an Exalted, a human endowed with extraordinary powers by the gods and chosen to serve as a champion. Exalted people have different abilities depending on the deity or power that granted them powers, and many Exalted sects have complicated relationships. Exalted originally had loose ties to the mythology of the Dark World games, but that relationship became tenuous after both games underwent multiple-edition revisions.
As part of their announcement, Jenkins & Tate also released a synopsis for the TV show, which roughly matches the game’s default starting point. The synopsis reads:
The Fantastic TV Show Exalted takes place 800 years after the fall of the Solar Exalted. With the absence of the Scarlet Empress, connoisseurs believe the realm’s savior will not return.
The bureaucrats and the eleven great Dragon Houses of the kingdom, almost all of whom claim to descend directly from the Empress, have done what they can to keep this a secret and maintain peace and control. However, the realm is on the brink of civil unrest as the Houses ignore the threat of the Exalted Celestials in order to position themselves and take control of the realm.
In a distant village to the east of the kingdom, a Solar Exalted will arise and a new journey will begin …
This is the second tabletop RPG that Jenkins & Tate is developing into a TV show. They previously announced earlier this year that they were developing the game. Scion (also a title of White Wolf) in a show. It is also the second tabletop game announced for a televised contract this week, following yesterday’s announcement that Blades in the dark was also becoming a spectacle.
