    replied to So rules for Sorcerers
    I have to wait until the book is available to the public but what I am hearing is making me excited for the Vampire-Mummy Two Fisted Tales style game I want to do.

  • It's been a little while since I read the pertinent sections in the Mummy supplements so I might be fuzzing details, but basically after one of the Sothic turns that saw a large number of the Arisen awaken in areas near the Egypt of the time, infighting, the effects of Sybaris of so many Deathless, etc resulted in a messy conflict. A decision was made to disperse their numbers to avoid that happening again....

  • Thanks for the initial info. The wait until this goes on general sale is going to drive me nutters. Any Mutapa empire crossover goodies/interesting craziness?

    I've been lucky in that regard. Even just limiting my interests to Onyx Path I'm currently gleefully awaiting for the Dark Eras Companion and it's juicy Mummy related material and Vampire's Thousand Years of Night. That sort of thing and other interests tends to mean I barely keep it in mind the development of current Exalted materials while I wait. I'll be interested to see what the announcement ends up being but I'm okay waiting in unspeculative silence....

    *listens to the awkward silence of the situation where Onyx Path has not worked with strict deadlines like in RPG industry yesteryear with all the negative aspects that come with them, for some time now*...

  • I mostly felt that the Dark Eras book gave me what I was expecting it to have crossover wise. Namely setting material that briefly touched on the crossover elements of some of the splats that the era was intended to highlight according to what splats play so well with the time period. As a Classic WoD vet having the vastly more compatible rules sets has been a real boon for someone who enjoys well done crossovers. That said while I expect some awesome things from the Dark Eras Companion(Cleopatra and Mutapa!), I don't expect to see dedicated crossover until the ChoD book dedicated to that subject...

    Beyond the whole dichotomy of forum users vs rest of fanbase that does not use forums stuff, which is pretty immaterial really. There is still the whole factor that someone finding silver lining in the shitty situation still doesn't change what is pertinent, which is it was a shitty situation that shouldn't have happened in the first place. No amount of anecdotes makes up for that period of justifies breaking a legal agreement to leak intellectual property. THAT is relevant.

    Take Totentanz bullshit statement about "poor little me." No amount of justification makes up for...

    I already mentioned why thinking that an Onyx Path Kickstarter would be vapourware is a bad assumption that really does nothing but insult the company. Suffice to say my opinion is pretty simply on this matter. I consider it extremely selfish the idea that breaking the law, robbing a development team of it's ability to present finished material to the public(particularly in the case of a fanbase whose reactions to unfinished material has been spectacularly poor) and otherwise leaking an IP that people who are already working in a cottage industry poured a lot of hard work and dedication into....

    The argument for Open Development isn't related to any argument about people breaking legal agreements. Regardless it's a dead thing anyway. It's been made clear time and time again that developers are given creative and personal preference in how they want to handle the development process. I have no idea how things would have turned out had the leaks not happened and ruined the presentation timing for the game but at best it's simply academic speculation on what thoughts Holden, John,etc would have had in that alternate universe on the idea of open development. I don't have a strong opinion...

    That's not an excuse to break a legal agreement. All the "but muh piracy." arguments in the world doesn't change that. Nor is the utterly unsupported idea of the rpg books as vapourware a good argument. Onyx Path has consistently used Kickstarter as a way for people to be able to add on extra material to projects that WILL happen. That's been clear since they started using the process. The biggest thing to come out of the EX 3 kickstarter was decisions on the readiness of the text before the kickstarter happens. Poor reasoning based on poor assumptions and piracy are not persuasive arguments...

    RichT put it best. It's not a matter of everyone else getting to pay for it. That ultimately is a selfish reasoning of the events. That might sound harsh but it's also true because it was never the fanbase's call to make. It was the developers and someone made a selfish decision then another person made another selfish decision that ruined things for everyone else. Given what I saw, read and know from that time I cannot in good conscience blame the development team for their decision and I consider it the right call to this day. Not that my opinion on that matters really.

    Call me crazy but maybe juuuuuuuuuuuuust maybe this is why we shouldn't have people breaking NDAs....twice...and leaking things to scummy places like 4chan.


    IE. Yeah I really don't have any problem laying the blame on this squarely on the fanbase.

  • Yet again ignore list mysteriously blank again.

    This is at least the third time now that my ignore list has mysteriously gone blank. In consideration that at least one person on my ignore list is a person who has been a harasser in pms this is getting a little old.

    The idea that Rich would make a post about the development process and an announcement with positive information about releases and it involving the Zak S. situation(Which didn't need to get dragged into this thread btw) is beyond nonsensical.

    As for me, I am going to do what I always do. Wait and see what the actual information is. Nothing from this fanbase has given me any hint of confidence in it's capacity to make coherent speculation on these sort of things....

  • You play any multiplayer Civ 5? Still interested in playing MP games as waiting until all the expansions for Civ 6 are released before deciding on that game.

    Was hoping for a midnight release of River City Ransom Underground but no dice it seems. That said, Night in the Woods is darling!...
