    Anathema- Yes.

    Holden and John did provide those guys with text and commentary well before the launch of EX3, which is what we said we'd do. Anathema was always an independent project and it was up to them to take that info and run with it.

      Which, being one of the two guys who picked up the reins, I can say that from what he's told us, Urskr's been taking a long hiatus. Which isn't your fault.

        Corrected. For what it's worth I think that on the Kickstarter stretch goals side of things we have little to complain about, you're doing fine.

              I wrote literally exactly the same thing as Jetstream in the post above (I wrote kickstarter as opposed to ks but other than that exactly). So I deleted the "double post".

                As I understand it, the pay bump did not actually end up happening for at least one of the authors and is still outstanding.

                  I think it might be of value to not just put everything in a binary yes/no. There are "No" marks things that we have no reason to doubt will become "Yes" but have obvious reasons why they're not yet (the novels are being written, the art bump for future books can't be out until those books are actually finished), and "Yes" marks that don't actually mean a finished thing has gotten to the backers (the stuff has been sent to the Anathema team, which hasn't finished with it yet). Then there's things we don't have any solid news on, like the the essays, and some rumor mill issues regarding things like freelancers and getting the pay bump.

                  Reflecting on the good and bad of the list is hard when the good and bad of the list isn't as simple as a binary yes/no.

                    Anyone know the status of the music suite? That was one of the things I thought would be cool.

                      If that is the case then that writer should contact Rose so we can find out why the bump was not included on that writer's pay schedule when the devs handed it in.

                        Our composer is working on the final track for the Exalted types, and will then start on the "adventuring" tracks.

                          While I agree, remember that the specific kickstarter goal was *not* for a completed Anathema suite. It was for the gameplay information to be sent to the Anathema team early so Urskr could get a headstart on it, and possibly complete it by the time EX3 was released. Onyx Path did their due diligence on that count, since Urskr is an independent party and was doing the whole thing as a hobby engagement, not something paid for or the like.

                            I look forward to it myself. I enjoy the Exalted theme (blows the 1e ones out of the water. God, they're so bad, they sound like early 90's RTS soundtracks. Like someone's gonna shout "Wolo" at me and then start hitting me with an army of monks so they can convert my buildings) my Exalted playlists need some more orchestral/specifically-designed-for-exalted action.

                              I agree in general, but specifically disagree about the Anathema goal, which is why I interjected here. We fulfilled our goal, which was to give the Anathema team everything they needed to go live with EX3. Our goal wasn't for us to make it go live, as that was always out of our hands and skillsets. The collaboration spoken about in the goal description happened, and then things changed for the Anathema team and their project.
