The following is reproduced verbatim from a letter I received yesterday, with my answers to my prison penpal's questions interspersed throughout in different color text. I didn’t know Exalted was popular in prison! That’s oddly exciting.
To White Wolf,
I am a federal prisoner and have ordered and received Exalted 2nd Edition and The Manual of Exalted Power—The Dragon-blooded. After Reading them and speaking to the gaming group there are three things that I am asking if you could expand on or what books the are present in.
First, the demon realms and all things malfean are there any supplements released that have a more exhaustive detail? What are Infernal Exalted?
There hasn’t been a supplement released yet that expands on the realm of Malfeas, but The Compass of Celestial Directions, Vol. V—Malfeas is in editing right now. It will be out soon. As for Infernal Exalt, the term encompasses both the Green Sun Princes and the Exalted akuma. Basically, any Exalt who serves the Yozis and is reshaped body and soul to better do so. A Green Sun Prince is host to a Solar Exaltation twisted by the Yozis for their own dark purposes. Each such Infernal Exalt has access to powers beyond even the Exalted akuma and retains her freewill. Exalted akuma, on the other hand, are Exalts transformed into slaves of the Yozis in exchange for enormous power.
Second, the fair folk. Is there a second edition supplement that allows fair folk to be played? That greater details their powers and to use them as flushed out adversaries?
There is indeed. It’s Graceful Wicked Masques—The Fair Folk.
Third, spells and warstriders! Where can I find them? Is there a second edition supplement that details nothing but spells and warstriders?
These two things are split between two release. Warstrider rules and examples are to be found in The Books of Sorcery, Vol. I—Wonders of the Lost Age, while both sorcery and necromancy spells are in The Books of Sorcery, Vol. II—The White and Black Treatises.
I am also curious as to what dragon kings are?
The Dragon Kings are an ancient race of enlightened reptiles that ruled Creation and mankind before the events of the Primordial War. Degenerate remnants of the four breeds of Dragon Kings survive to the present day, most notably in the ruins of Rathess, their ancient capital.
Hey, while I am at it… in the [struck through "anatoginsti" here] antagonists section the God-Blooded have a “Inheritance” background. What is that?
It’s a Background that indicates the relative power of a God-Blood, based on the amount of supernatural power inherited from her divine parent. The Background is detailed in the upcoming Scroll of Heroes for all God-Bloods and more specifically for Demon-Blooded in The Manual of Exalted Power—The Infernals.
A game set in lost glory, where excess has led to destruction and loss, and returning … stigmatized into a world that so desperately hates and needs the solars … is a great game to play in prison.
I can see where that would be true.
What new releases are scheduled for Exalted? What is the entire available line up?
Upcoming new release include Graceful Wicked Masques—The Fair Folk, The Art of Exalted, The Compass of Terrestrial Directions, Vol. IV—The South, The Compass of Terrestrial Directions, Vol. V—The North, The Manual of Exalted Power—The Infernals, The Manual of Exalted Power—The Alchemicals, The Compass of Celestial Directions, Vol. V—Malfeas, Scroll of Exalts and a surprise or two that have yet to be announced.

Not having internet access, and family and friends who aren’t that savvy with the internet makes it really hard to find out what is going on and what is up and coming. If there is any catalog that would be greatly appreciated.
There isn’t a printed catalog, but I’ll see what I can do.
Thank you very much for your time and patience. I so very much appreciate the help.
Not a problem.
PS. Is Graceful Wicked Masques The Fair Folk released yet? If not when is it do? thx J
Interestingly, I was talking to my co-worker Jason just yesterday, and he informs me that the release date has now been moved again, this time to February 4th. trust me, I’m pissed and want my copy as well.
