    VTR: A Thousand Years of Night:

    Is this still something that is popping up sometime before April? I ask because while it's listed for the first quarter there's no progress bar indicating where it's at in the process...

    Ideally, we always want to have the two happen at the same time so that while the developed text is being edited, art is being made, and then the art and edited text come in to layout at the same time and the graphic designer puts both elements together to lay out the book. Of course, sometimes things don't work out ideally.

    I don't see why not, two different groups of people work on those things.

    It's the other way around.

    The warriors of Set therefore fought evil and powerful ghosts that wanted to drag the living into the world of death.

Things so foul and alien that their very presence warped and eroded reality.

    ....

    Gradually, the bloodline shifted from a lineage of shadow warriors to a lineage of bodyguards and minions. Khaibit seldom appear as the protagonists of Circle history or legends.

    The khaibit aren't quite characterized as servants as much as mercenary bodyguards and anti-strix experts in the 2nd ed.

    Elder: "wait, what do you mean I've been doing it wrong?"

    Dragon Elder: "Interesting. I wish to subscribe to your newsletter... I mean, research journal."
    Bathory wannabe: "we... huh... don't have one of those."
    Dragon Elder: "And there's your problem!"

    As of today, it is in the blurbs as a first draft.

    Now I realized that the descriptions of effects of high level Skills/Attributes will probably be useful for the other Supernaturals as well, if they won't get their own.

    That section talks about crossover with ancient supernaturals. The fact it is redacted means it is not Mummy or something obvious like that. Considering we don't even know Deviant's title, I don't think it comes from that direction. Considering we know a lot about Changeling, I don't think it comes from that direction either. That may mean it could be something that most people just won't think about, and could come as a surprise, something old and long lived that just doesn't take that much room in the setting.. like the Purified.

    (please be it the purified, pretty please with sugar on top!)
