Beta 5 Closed
Today is the last day password requests will be accepted for Beta 5.
Also, registration will be turned off for the time being.
Once again, I would like to thank everyone that has participated in testing my toolkits for Exalted.
The response in feedback and bug reports has been fantastic!
With your help on Beta 5 and over the past nine months, I have been able to improve the toolkits to the high level of quality that they have obtained.
Please continue to send me any bugs that you find and any suggestions that you may have.

Beta 5 Patch 005 - Report Fix and Charm Tree Performance mod
A bug in the building of the combo reports caused the last combo in the list to be left out.
After further testing, this bug was found in all of the multi-item reports.
For example, if you had ten charms, only the first nine would be listed.
This bug, among others has been corrected in this patch.

New Character Toolkit - Mortal Toolkit
With the completion of all of the other Character Toolkits, I decided to make the Mortal Toolkit.
This has been a wish list item since Beta 1.
I am please to present this to you and look forward to your feedback concerning it, once Beta 5 begins.
Now that the Mortal Toolkit is completed, I can see how useful it will be for those starting a new campaign.
You can now make your character up to play out the exaltation and then convert her into a Solar, Dragon-Blooded, Lunar or Abyssal.
All you will have to do is click one of the Exalt buttons and your mortal will be converted and ready to make into an exalted!

Toolkit Polishing - Dragon-Blooded
The Dragon-Blooded turned out to be the hardest color scheme to update.
Myself and Andrea decided upon an earthen feel verus the fire/blood look used previously.
The new look is built upon the basis of "Jade".
Since a Dragon-Blooded's existance is wrapped around her jade artifacts and they are terrestrial exalted, I felt it appropriate to change the scheme to this.

Toolkit Polishing - Abyssal
In the forthcoming beta, all of the character toolkits will receive another look upgrade.
My friend Andrea Smith has once more aided me in this graphical and layout enhancement.
This upgrade will include a more appealing and useful toolbar, transparent etched borders around the text fields and a cleaner placement of data elements.
The goal is to further enhance the viewing experience of the user.
The update to the main form of the Abyssal toolkit is complete.
You can view the changes in the
Abyssal Toolkit Sample section.
