    imgur? dropbox? google photos?

        Sure, you can post a pic of the cover. The thing is, I redid almost all of the glyphs so they'd be more fantastic and less mesoamerican. So some are pretty similar to what we had before, but others are way different. The structure still works the same way as in the past, though.

              Any chance of the updated glyphs turning up in a blog post or the like in the near future? It seems like the kind of content that makes people happy for a bit. Might even get some creative software types to try and create image working routines and/or phonetic systems to make an automatic translator to old realm.

                In the near future? No, I want backers who got the O Edition to have a chance to decipher it if they want. Later? Absolutely.

                      Seriously? You couldn't let us have fun with the new symbols without basically just telling me I wasted three weeks of work redesigning them?

                        For what it's worth Rich, I think it looks fucking awesome, and I imagine I will be go to my grave regretting that I didn't have the money to buy one of the Ultra Deluxe Corebooks when the Kickstarter was going on.

                            He's not saying it looks awful - he even said it looks good as a cover.

                                No, he is specifically referring to my post about changing the symbols from the mesoamerican to something more fantastic and that he prefers the original glyphs rather than the ones I worked up specifically to better fit Exalted. There is no reason at all to give that opinion in this thread. Nobody asked for a critique, folks were having fun deciphering them.
