    It means unarmed. Smashfists and such aren't unarmed.

      • So what are we getting, exactly, in Heirs to the Shogunate? I don't remember how much we did/didn't unlock, and if in development it's grown or changed in any way.

            We don't currently have any plans for that.

                So I have a question. How much of this is actually written up before the kickstarter? Which to clarify I assume since half of writing is editing that there was a lot of stuff left over that couldn't be fit into the core DB book. I heard that a lot of the monsters and antagonists being published online now were originally supposed to be in the core book. Which I think is great actually so creative work isn't wasted. I am just a little interested in taking a little sneak peak back stage so to speak.

                  None. We didn't overwrite for What Fire Has Wrought; everything in Heirs to the Shogunate is new material.

                      While we haven't finalized the details of it, my current thinking is no. It spares Sidereal and Getimian players in mixed circles the feel-bad of someone else getting to use their signature thing before they do, and it gives us some room to pack more power into SMA, a la sorcery.

                        Do you guys like the Castebook format from 1e? Are short books like that still economical, so that you could do them if you wanted to do so, without them necessarily having to be KS stretch goals?

                          I don't know the exact wordcount of the Caste Books, so I can't compare them to the stuff we've got planned.

                            Makes sense. So Sidereal’s and getmetians will gain them later on as well? I’ve been reading the fluff on some and was wondering when I might -gestures at the Charcoal Spider- do that

                            • Erm... if that's already been decided, how is Heirs of the Shogunate structured chapter wise? It's been something I wondered about since the Kickstarter hit the chapter fiction goal: I figure it's not 'one chapter per expansion', but where are the divisions gonna be?
