    It’s supposed to have reaver (not reaper) daiklave stats. Thanks for catching that!...

    In general, I'd advise against too much emphasis on the setting's ancient history. If you sell players on the setting by talking up the Divine Revolution and the First Age, they'll feel that the whole point of play is to bring back the wonders of the First Age. If you sell players on the setting by talking up the Usurpation, they'll feel that the whole point of play is to get revenge on the Dragon-Blooded because the long-dead ancestors of the Dragon-Blooded killed their former incarnations over a thousand years ago. These are useful setting elements, but it's my opinion that prioritizing them...

    As per the First Edition supplement Games of Divinity, neomah are the progeny of Berengiere, the Weaver of Voices. I don't think there's a canonical source on blood apes....

    It's important to figure out where your game is set and focus on preparation for a game in that locale. Prepping players for a game set "in Creation" is like prepping players for a modern-day game set "on Earth"; the scope is too large to provide useful information.

    It's too far off to make predictions, but we're hoping to fit it into the schedule just before or just after Exigents....

    It isn't a deliberate homage or pastiche. I'm familiar with Naruto, though, so I can't say whether there might not have been some subconscious inspiration....

    That's supposed to specify firing Sekhem. Please post in the errata thread, thanks!...

    Repairing Sekhem requires Craft (Artifacts), and Craft (Artifacts) requires Lore 3 and Occult 3, so yes.


    A few hours, maybe up to a few days in extreme cases. It's not meant to require weeks as per the outlier description in the craft rules. Please post this on the errata thread for clarification in the final version....

    As noted above, The Realm is currently in editing, and we're working on art notes.

    Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought is just about to come back to us from editing for post-editing development, and the first preliminary sketches are coming in from the art team....

    Thank you for the kind words!


    Vance really is the best.


    Greyfalls will be covered briefly in The Realm. It's pretty close to its presentation in Scavenger Sons, at least in the broad strokes, though there are some noteworthy additions, such as the Golden Road to Ixcoatli.


    Linowan masks are still a thing, though we haven't worked out their mechanical details yet. (They were in an early draft of Arms of the Chosen, but were cut because we weren't satisfied with their implementation.)


    If White Veil Style existed, it would...

    Full MA trees would fit into stretch goal word count if we wanted to use them for stretch goals, sure. It's something we might consider for Sidereals....

    In future, Kickstarter stretch goals will provide supplementary material to be published separately from the book itself, in the vein of Miracles of the Solar Exalted. We want the text of the book proper to be completely finished by the time we reach the Kickstarter stage. This way we don't delay the book in order to write and incorporate stretch goals, and we don't risk ending up with an incomplete-feeling book if some stretch goals are missed (or a bloated-feeling book if enough stretch goals are hit)....

    The story of Brigid is known in the Time of Tumult (though the Dragon-Blooded say she was one of their own). The passage of millennia, however, makes the truth of the matter difficult to ascertain.

    EDIT: Ninja'd!...

    We've already turned in our final drafts of Dragon-Blooded and The Realm for editing, and we're currently focused on ramping up toward Lunars.

    We're working on pitches for the next few books to come immediately after Lunars, but we'd rather not discuss them until the pitches are approved by Onyx Path and White Wolf....

    We're still working details for these locales, and we don't want to tie our writers' hands by posting incomplete ideas on the forums. Sorry!...

    The special activation rules cover characters who aren't dissonant with orichalcum, whether or not they're resonant. The reference to a resonant character purchasing the Evocation is an editing artifact from before the special activation rules were added; it should instead refer to when the resonant character awakens the Evocation via the special activation rules. A resonant character enhancing all of her Caste and Favored Abilities is over and above the ability unlocks in the special activation rules....

    Cycles aren't seasons. Rather, they're clusters of adjacent months that have been lumped together, in much the same way that we divide the real-world year into quarters — Jan/Feb/Mar as Q1, Apr/May/Jun as Q2, etc. Creation's cycles just happen to be more artfully named.

    As in the real world, whether Creation's seasons are prescriptively tied to the calendar depends on culture and profession; even those cultures that tie them together in principle don't necessarily do so in practice, often using them as descriptive terms instead. If the calendar says it's autumn but your entire village...
