      Interesting.

      I wonder when we'll see any previews. Unlike DBs and Lunars, I have no real preconceptions, particular things I want to see, etc. So I'm not really excited by Exigents per-se, but something new and inspiring could make a big difference.
      Especially the different kinds of Exigents (and non-Exigents) shown in the book, which are all very new.

        if we get previews my guess is that it would probably be about the four example Exigents they have in the book, like Janest


        .

          Hmmm... with the previous two splats, they did three previews I think? A couple of mechanics previews, and a fluff preview? Something like that?

          The thing of course, is that it was three previews about Lunars, or three previews about Dragonblood.
          Exigents is a bit different.
          Will they do, say, a preview of one of the four example Exigent types? A preview of something general about Exigents, for example the charm-creation rules or fluff about the Exigence itself? Will they do any previews for the three other kinds of Exalts in the appendix or not?

            Since they just posted it, they probably only just hired the writers. I’d expect it to be a month or two before we saw anything at all.

            I also expect Exigents to be much harder to write than any other splat book ever, so I’m trying very hard not to have any timeline expectations for it.

              Oh, I certainly don't expect previews for months. Probably August or something.

              I think Exigents is very difficult to write, but I don't know if it'll be longer. It may have a lot less charms, since it's about making your own charmset.
              It also may have less fluff, as it has no organisation that needs a chapter like the Silver Pact, Realm, etc.

              On the other hand, it's going to contain 7 sets of character gen rules+traits+charmsets, so there may be just as much.

                The biggest thing I'm curious about is how the hell they're going to do stretch goals.


                And stuff.

                  More example Exigents would be the obvious one. They could also do more charms or something for the non-canonical Exalt types.

                    It has four sample sets of Exigent Charms, a couple of which have been confirmed, so it does have a ton of Charms. To put it into perspective, book's so big that they cannot put any Martial Arts, Sorcery or Artifacts in it, though with its rules you can make your own much easier I'd hope. Though unfortunately we're not getting Charms for the optional Exalts as far as we've heard.

                      Well they said there would be notes on what their charms should be like. If the info on building charms is good, then it shouldn’t be too difficult to make them playable.

                          Indeed! It's just more of a "Build it yourself" deal. But four Charmsets is pretty damn good as is.

                            If I was going to do stretch goals for Exigents, one thing I would plan on doing was making sure that the appendix with the extra exalts went out in the middle of the KS. That would give a bit of time for everyone to absorb the info. Then, if we hit enough goals, maybe we have a stretch goal that lets us vote for one of them to be expanded in the companion.

                              Have they stated they intend to do a Kickstarter for Exigents? Or is that just presumed based on general "splat books get Kickstarted" mindset? I asked in the Devs thread but only because it caught my attention here that we're presuming there will be one.


                              I post Artifacts in this thread. How I make them is in this thread.
