Mass Combat is the physical resolution of large-scale battles in Exalted. In First Edition, Mass Combat was called Mail and Steel.

Mass Combat includes very significant numbers of warriors which are banded into Mass Combat Units. A Unit can consist of as few as one, a Solo Unit, or as many as 10,000 or more. Units are essentially worn by their Commander and augment the Commander's abilities. Each Unit is allowed to have special character including Sorcerers, Heroes, and Relays. While the typical rules for Charms work, a great deal of leeway is allowed for each Charm as well as the duration of the Charm being increased to Long Ticks, each one representing roughly a minute of time.
