Exile was a place where the Empire imprisoned those who didn't fit in. The people of Exile have re-emerged into the sunlight to live as they see fit. You play a band of former Exiles, making your way through what remains of the Empire, taking whatever jobs you can to make ends meet. Unlike the other Exile games, Blades of Exile is both a scenario editor and player allowing you to build your own scenario and send your party out to conquer the scenarios of others. The game comes with three scenarios, but you can only play the first if the game isn't registered.
