(in response to a post claiming they didn’t see the point of playing Exalted, if the original canonical “ending” of the setting where everybody squabbles until the sky caves in and the setting eventually becomes the World of Darkness is taken as factual)
This depends on how you define failure.
Is everything humanity does pointless because eventually the universe will heat death and everything we ever build or think or procreate will be reduced to absolute zero energy level particles evenly distributed across the infinite cosmos?
One day, the world of Creation will die. Until then, you can save it, one day at a time. Until that day comes long, long after you are dead and everything you have ever done has become history, legend and myth, glorious will be the tales of the Exalted.
