From frozen Northern tundra to vast Southern deserts, from dense Eastern forests to the West’s endless waters, Creation shelters myriad cultures and civilizations.

Night horrors stalk the farmlands outside Whitewall, while residents and refugees within struggle with overpopulation and hunger. In the rebel satrapy of Fray, dragonlord Hanto Galina has named herself Empress and laid claim to the Scarlet Throne. Intelligent wolves rule in Wolf’s Paw, adopting human finery and demanding loyalty from human servants. By the Dreaming Sea, Tzakul relicts play their soul game, competing to seize opponents’ bodies. Varangian astrologers study citizens’ horoscopes, setting social status from the moment of birth. Alien structures loom over Decanthus, a Southwestern city recently returned from Hell. Smiths in the empire of Makelo produce fantastic works, their craft handed down from the forge-goddess Ninegala. An ominous heart beats beneath the Silverswept Plains, drawing the plains clans into the entity’s inhuman nightmares.

Across the 8 Directions Introduction

Is it Cormorant's Landing, like in this book or Petrel’s Landing, like in Many-Faced Strangers? I was also wondering if Gem would be featured in a future book?

How useful would this be for Exalted Essence?
Is it Ex3 stat heavy, or more weighted to setting and flavour?

Across the Eight Directions is an excellent lore and setting source for Exalted Essence. There's very little mechanical heft within the book, and instead more of an around Creation look at societies and places where you could set games.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
