    Thanks for your input. I'll explain why your wrong when I have some time to get into it....

  • Fingers crossed the reason has to do with the devourer and those mysteriuous Maws of hers alluded to in the Book of the Deceived....

    I was making some comparisons between the text and Madoka, but felt better of it since I was quoting from an unpublished source. Cosmic law and unknowable entities imposing their will and such. Also the image of a mummy hitting up Blessing of the God King by screaming "Azar Power, Make up!"....

    Course, if we're talking about Demons being detected as Demons, rather than spies, then I must give the edge to them. If a target has the ability to detect the supernatural, the Demon is better at hiding its nature than a mummy. But if we're talking about being exposed as a spy in general, the edge absolutely goes to the Arisen....

    Oh I see. Well, I guess if you say its invalid it must be invalid. I mean, a clever demon is by far the most likely to be detected compared to a clever mummy, but if you've taken that into account, which you surely must have if you have determined my point is invalid, then obviously my point is invalid and that's that. The spy most likely to be exposed is the superior spy. End of discussion, I guess....

    You see, my dear ArcaneArts, if I realize a demon is spying on me I can prevent this if I can apply enough bullets to his face. A Maa-Kep spy, on the other hand, can eventually spy on me again no matter how many times I shoot him....

  • Moving beyond that complaint which I do hope they change before the final draft I like what I’m seeing by and large. One thing that stands out was the deep description on several judges. I hope we can get a book (players guide?) that does the same for the remaining 36 cause that provided some much needed depth on how the creepy bastards operate.

  • As a curtesy I’ll try to keep the hyperbole to a minimum next time. But I’m not gonna make a habit of being overly concerned with your approval when I comment, Satchel. Otherwise I’d spend all day typing up the message....

  • Edit: after going through some of the other comments I realized my original response was just rehashing what others had already said. Instead I will just point out that Sothis Ascends at the bottom of page 23 blatantly aligns Mesopotamia with Ki En Gir directly. While I don’t have a page number I believe the Alexander the Great chapter of Dark Eras also refers to the “half demon” Ki En Gir as one example of a Mesopotamian empire (which was written, if memory serves, by the same person that wrote parts of the Fall of Iserion, the excellent mummy chapter in dark eras companion....

  • My objection is that KiEnGir was a Mesopotamian enemy of Irem in first edition and should remain so in second. It wouldn’t matter whether you said America is inside the borders of China or that “the America” was an elite unit of imperial soldiers serving the Chinese emperor. Both statements are silly and wrong if you know what “America” refers to.

  • I admit I am a little perplexed by the history of the rough draft. I could be messing up my ancient geography here, but I don’t think Canaan and Mesopotamia traditionally overlap each other...which confuses me when the empire of the Ki-En-Gir...a name for ancient Mesopotamia...is being said to reside in ancient Canaan.

  • Incidentally, what Utterance did he use to control the weather? I remember a Utterance for calling up Sandstorms, but not broader control. I ask because my primary setting has a history of destructive tornadoes and I've been hoping to use one particular point in history as two merets getting into a turf war that got out of hand.

  • I was assuming it was actually a refinement of the good old sacrificial resurrection method...specifically limiting who can serve as the sacrifice. It kinda made sense to me since the Sadikh (a being specifically granted immortality through the use of a mummy's pillar) can serve as said sacrifice. Hoping it sort of bridging that aspect of the game with the sharing of pillars arisen can give to sorcerers from the Fall of Iseiron chapter....

  • That does raise some interesting possibilities now. Like I would hope, stats for Slaughterers and exploration of the various undead down there (avarice mentions essentially 7 ways to “stray” from becoming an Arisen, as well as the “unjustified” dead who were never judged and those who did not know the name of Anubis and became his servants.

    Fun times all around

  • As an aside, where are we hearing that there were a lot of mummies riding during the French Revolution. I endorse this idea 100% but had not heard an official statement.
