This work will not endeavor to prove the merit or detriment of those Exalted by the Unconquered Sun, it will merely attempt to give details of what they did and how. In particular this work will focus on the Solar Circle that formed in Denandsor, the fabled City Of The Mad as it was once know.
Little is know of the lives of the members of the Denandsor Circle from before they became Exalted. What is know is documented at the end of this volume. What is know is that they all Exalted at roughly the same time while fleeing from the Lookshy invasion of Great Forks during the Festival of Flame. While doing so almost a thousand individuals where able to escape into the surrounding country side. From this point the Exalted decide to march south to what was known then as Denandsor, The City Of The Mad. It was so named since none could enter without being driven mad. When the refugees decided to join them they where lucky enough to gain supplies from a good natured merchant. During the long march some died to disease, however many managed to complete the journey.
When the Exalted arrived at Denandsor they had more to deal with than the maddening taint, all but one of the automatons had also been tainted. Despite the danger the group pressed into the center of the city. With the help of the only remaining sane automaton, by the designation of Blue-235, they evaded patches of wild taint and set out for the palace. Upon reaching the palace they crept through the halls evading automatons and other “things.” Eventually they found themselves in the royal chambers. It is here that Cedrick found his bonded Lunar from the first age. Although it had maintained its mind its body had been corrupted and Cedrick returned his soul to the cycle. After this they followed the advice of the late Lunar and discovered the device that caused the taint. At this point they destroyed the Miasma Generator, and thus released Denandsor from its maddening influence.
For the next year the Exaltes helped with the founding of the city of Denandsor, with a few of them taking seats on the newly formed Denandsor Council. Once the city was underway and trade began to come to Denandsor the Exaltes could once more turn their gaze to the world outside the wall of their city.
