The Heroes of Heaven's Height
Creation is the world in which Exalted is set. It is flat, and in each direction bounded by one of the Elemental Poles. To the West is Water, and if one sails far enough west it becomes impossible to tell the sky from the endless ocean. To the North is Air, where the land disappears completely, and snow drifts and icebergs fly in the void. To the East is Wood, where the trees stretch into the heavens and further. To the South is Fire, where the sands of the desert turn into liquid glass and flame. The center of Creation is the Elemental Pole of Earth, the Imperial Mountain, once called Heaven’s Height.
The sun, the moon, and the stars orbit Creation in their appointed rounds, and seasons visit it based on the Bureau of Seasons, with varying severity for different parts, depending on their elemental position and leylines.
