  • 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?

                • Will Lightning Calling Challenge (or something like it) make a return in Lunars? That has got to be hands down one of my favorite charisma charms. In a more vague question, can we look forward to a decent amount of teamwork charms for Lunars (ie don't directly benefit you but does good things for your allies)?

                  • Now that Resolve keys off of Wits, I take it Lunars have a proper mental defense this time around?

                    ​(As opposed to "Commanded to Fly.")

                      They've got some.

                        Yes, although they still have Commanded to Fly in Manipulation.

                              At present, no five-dot artifacts but several four-dot artifacts. Specific dot ratings may be subject to change during development, however.

                                Cynis Denovah Avaku wasn't chosen as a backer character for Heirs to the Shogunate.
