THE UNCRUCIFIED is a short story set in the world of Exalted, a tabletop role-playing game created by White Wolf Publishing and Onyx Path Publishing. In a world of defunct gods, corrupt nobility, and ancient magic, a young slave named Kalara struggles to find her place in a society where her future is bought and sold from one year to the next. An unexpected kindness releases Kalara from the cycle of cruelty, only to inspire her towards dreams a slave was never meant to have, dreams even the gods could not ignore.
