      Shards as in non-canonical settings for folks to have fun in, a la Dragon & Masks?

      There are a few ideas in a pre-pitch stage. I don't know that I could call them plans at the moment, but there's a pitch in particular that's pretty likely to happen. I think a lot of folks will have fun with it.

              I've been uninvolved in Saints & Monsters' development, so that doesn't feel like my spoiler to give. I'll invite the dev to answer and see if they feel like answering, though.

                As in a how-to on running an Underworld?

                There's a little of that coming up soon in Realms of Magic & Mystery. I don't know if a more in-depth look is feasible, as every Underworld is different. Heck, Mictlán's actually 9 Underworlds (although most of the actual business takes place in Chiconahualóyan.) That's not a definite "no," but it is something that'll be challenging to pull off.

                For right now, I don't have a solution that does a good enough job of walking the line between cultural respect, breadth of options, and playable content. If that changes, I think it'll make for a fun book.

                  No, I meant playing the actually creatures. Could you play a demon, or a Fury?

                    Oh, totally. Those would both count as Denizens, which have rules at the end of Origin, starting on page 162. There are a few templates that I could see as appropriate for Erinyes out of the box, depending on which aspects you're interested in.

                    Denizens are getting some love in Saints and Monsters, as seen here: http://theonyxpath.com/scion-saints-monsters-preview-3/

                        I don't think there's any direct cues from her, but I'm sure some of her work at least indirectly inspired some of the ideas. There are a lot of Exalted fans working on God.

                          Is Saints and Monsters getting kickstarted for a print run or going to pod on drivethru?

                              Can you share any details on No Gods, No Masters (or point me in the direction of the relevant blog posts if I missed them)?
