    [webcomic] Tales of Exalts

    PSA
    So as of May the 20th, DA will change into a poorly designed smartphone looking UI mess called Eclipse (knew you couldn't trust those darn smooth talkers).
    What this means is that it would be an ABSOLUTE PAIN IN THE ASS, to try and navigate my comic since there would no longer be tabs but instead just ONE GIANT MESS to scroll through (user friendliness at it's finest).
    To not have this be a thing, I have now divided my comic into chapter sub-folders that can be found in my "Tales of Exalts" Gallery Folder, there you will find Alchemical report (which since I didn't make it into chapters will sadly just be one giant thing to scroll through, sorry) and all of the chapters as Sub-Folders.
    This may actually make things a bit easier for y'all to scroll through hopefully.
    Also I wish to say that thank you to that ONE person on DA that actually made a decent job with making it simple to move my pages into sub-folders.

    Tales of Exalts.

    you can find it here: http://xanroth.deviantart.com/galler...ales-of-exalts Chapter 17 Zatzemi Secrets (2020-07-12) got over the artist block but ran into waking up feeling about as stiff as a board so only two pages once more...


    Ask An Exalt http://xanroth.deviantart.com/galler...5/Ask-An-Exalt 2019-10-27

    Alchemical Report

    this is a story about three champions, the chosen of Autochthon, on a mission to explore a strange new world, Enlightening Arbiter of Justice, the Orichalcum caste, scientist, researcher, scholar and diplomat. Oiled Lightning, the Moonsilver caste, spy, femme fatal, infiltrator and negotiator. Guilt Purging Scourge, the Soulsteel caste. designed for one single thing... to obliterate the anyone that dares to oppose the might of autochthonia,
    prepare yourselves for an adventure that will be happening in the same shard as tales of exalts.
    you can read it here http://xanroth.deviantart.com/galler...hemical-Report enjoy

    NEW PAGE! (2019-08-25) page 119 Was so disappointed with how page 119 turned out that I decided to get back into the main story...

    Tales of Exalts Side Stories.

    these are the stories that are not relevant enough to the main story for it to be included in the main story but are still to important to me to just skip.

    the fall:this story will tell the tale of how Industrial Heroine and Void Seeking Justicar ended up in the situation they where in, in tales of exalts chapter 2. i will actually make this page purely in lineart with some effect colors, i do this in order to improve my lineworks and ability to draw backgrounds it's a challenge from me to myself, i hope you will enjoy it, P.S. this side story will go to some dark places(and a few really light places) you have been warned.

    REMEMBER! I really encourage you guys and gals that read my stuff to comment, I want to know what you like and what you don't like, cause otherwise there's no way for me to know what I'm doing right or wrong... Also, I love reading peoples thoughts on what I draw. So please, if you enjoy my works then if it's not to much to ask just write a couple of words cause even a short "Nice work" is a huge boost for me!

    FINAL UPDATE! (2016-02-11)

    the anniversary drawing
    today 2016-08-14, It has been two years since i started to work on Tales of Exalts. well now the picture from last year have been updated with 4 of the daughter of the abyss's circle joining the party. Enjoy and WOOOOOOO!
    http://xanroth.deviantart.com/galler...ersary-picture


    quick description so to say (beware I'm not great at grammar and stuff so a text wall may appear).


    a blessing turns to a curse.

    the endless dreams of those to strong to die shall end.

    that which consumes even the shadows shall birth forth a herald of an endless night.

    heroes of ancient past born anew shall unite.

    the first among mighty walks creation once more.

    those who know no true emotions shall fell tears and bring forth the rage of five elements united in vengeance.

    the exiled ones shall return home once more.

    as the last rays of light fall upon creation, will the end of days be upon the world? For the Beast that kills the light is born in blood and war and it's hatred is endless as it breaks down the gates of Yu-Shan.

    can four heroes save all of creation?

    can they save each other?

    can they defeat that which even the Unconquered Sun cannot defeat?

    do you want to find out?

    well that's more or less a sort of prophecy intro thingie that i came up with when i made this post (nervous he he) tales of exalts will involve a pretty massive plot and the art style improves with each page so please don't let the first chapter discourage you.
    it also involves a few custom things.

    feedback is always appreciated and thank you for reading.
    and remember all will be revealed... in time...

    P.S. i usually update at the weekends but i won't promise anything I'm not sure i can keep so it may sometimes be earlier sometimes later depending on if i need to sketch a few characters before introducing them or if other things happen.
    Also this comic is a bit mixed sometimes its serious sometimes its more lighthearted and sometimes its more or less an attempt at comedy.

    The other thing is that there just doesn't seem to be much interest from people to actually read the comic...
    I occasionally read your updates and feel a bit out of the loop. Hosting on Deviant Art makes it a pain to go back and read it all from the beginning.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Third Edition, I enjoy it, however there is a lot of retcons that kinda put wrenches in my work. Characters disappearing places changing and so on.
    Use whatever interpretation of characters and places that fit your stories. Some of your readers have probably never heard of Exalted before, if you cater to them then departures from canon won't matter.

    I'm alive? I'M ALIVE!!!

    Eeeerm yeah I'm still around sorry about the hiatus there.
    Anyway, I wish to talk a little about the future of ToE.
    So originally my plan was 10 chapters per act and one act per direction.
    This is no longer the case.
    I'm just going to try and trudge on and possibly have the completed thing be shorter than my planned 50 chapters (blessed Isles was direction nr5).
    This will also mean that I will sometimes have straight up timeskips just to get the story forward in the future because I kinda want to finish this but I also don't want things to end like keychain without a proper ending.

    Now what made me want to end things like this?
    Well simply put this comic was started when in the place that i USED to play roleplaying games I played Exalted for the first time.
    And it left a permanent mark of joy on me...
    However that place no longer exists to me.
    It was ruined.
    I don't want to point fingers but lets just say that it started to become an effort to even motivate myself to go there.
    And with all of the great people that made it a place of joy leaving, I ended up with a bunch of new people that seemed intent on turning it into a hangout they could drink at...
    So yeah I left.
    The other thing is that there just doesn't seem to be much interest from people to actually read the comic...
    Aaaand finally third edition...
    Don't get me wrong, I like Third Edition, I enjoy it, however there is a lot of retcons that kinda put wrenches in my work.
    Characters disappearing places changing and so on.

    Now I wish to clarify, I'M NOT STOPPING THE COMIC. at least not yet, I will keep up being my stubborn self and try to finish the comic, but just be aware that there may be timeskips and jumps in the future.
    That is all.

    Anyway have one single page.
    The heat kinda stopped me from making more but still.

    Two pages this week.
    I'm taking a small break from the comic in order to get used to my new tablet, so instead I'm doing a few none exalted sketches that can be found here: https://www.deviantart.com/xanroth/g...y-hero-hunting
    It's something for a future project.
    If anyone has a character they want drawn then now could be a good time to poke me about it and I may just draw them for you.

    Feeling better...
    And ANGRIER...
    So I guess that's good since angry me has less to focus on being sick and more on being angry over rather trivial problems like a new DA UI that is rather (insert about three A4 double sided pages of angry ranting here).

    Anyway.
    Stay happy, stay healthy and don't go about putting if not yourself then others health at risk unnecessarily.

    here we go three more pages.
    This possible corvid is making it annoying to work, but sod it.
    If holes in my lungs couldn't kill baby me, some possible crow sounding flue like thing ain't going to stop me from drawing what I love!!!

    So have three pages and stay healthy y'all...
    And hopefully me and my folks will be free of this crud next update.
    (we have symptoms but for us it's acting like a flue so all good here)

    And on better news, there's only about 18 pages before I reach my 1000th Tales of Exalts page (with alchemical report included).

    So last Friday my obligatory quarantine ended and I got to go back to my work...
    I was happy to get things back to normal...
    And then I got sick again yesterday...
    Back into quarantine I go...

    Anyway. I'm pretty confident that it's not Corona so there's that.
    Stay safe and stay healthy y'all!
