Modern Exalted: Bring back the Light
Once a great empire, this historic nation is now but one of several mid-sized states affiliated with the UES. While the Guild proper no longer rules, the Sijan Guild Party retains significant power within the nation’s splintered par-liamentary legislature. Velennia’s terrain ranges from low mountains to the north to the Yellow River valley in the south. A mild climate and fertile soil lend themselves well to agriculture, but the nation’s economy is primarily industrial, including metalworking, electronics, chemical manufacturing and pharmaceuticals.
The nation’s bohemian capital, Great Forks, is renowned for cuisine and the arts. Its thousand-year history draws tourists to tree-shaded avenues and winding streets where picturesque old buildings of brick and stone surround functionalist Guild-era concrete blocks and high-tech towers of glass and steel. The city’s most famous landmark is the Cathedral of the Founders, home to three legendary angels of the Immaculate faith—Weaver of Glorious Tales, Merchant of Dreams of Victory, and Spear of a Different Day—said to have guided the city’s first settlers and to answer the prayers of the faithful.
