Rating: ★★★★½

MATTHEW
ACTIONVERSE #1 FEATURING STRAY (part 5 of 6)
Writer: Sean Izaakse
Artist: Sean Izaakse
Cascade makes his move to power up his portal engine…which will destroy our world! Jake has teamed up with Medula. Has the entire world gone mad?? Molly, Virtue, Stray and Midnight Tiger are running out of time to save this, and every, universe!

Rating: ★★★☆☆

RODRIGO
This is the tale of a forgotten age before the seas were bent, when the world was flat and floated atop a sea of chaos. This is the tale of a decadent empire raised up on the bones of the fallen Golden Age, whose splendor it faintly echoed but could not match. This is a tale of primal frontiers, of the restless dead, of jeweled cities ruled openly by spirits in defiance of Heaven’s law. This is a tale of glorious heroes blessed by the gods, and of their passions and the wars they waged in the final era of legends.

This is your tale. This is Exalted. What legends will they tell of your deeds?

Exalted 3rd Edition depicts both a revitalized and expanded Creation, and the triumphant return of the Solar Exalted—but whether their rebirth will herald the salvation or destruction of the world, none can say. The system redesign takes the best parts of the previous editions and streamlines the mechanics for maximum playability.

Rating: ★★★★½
