  • Ok, first "real deal" Beast chapter. After this, I'll get to Families, Hungers, the Lessons and the Brood/Family. It's the actual starting point for Beasts, the one that will color future chapters, so if you think something does not work or is missing, please do tell me.

    Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

    Beasts might have no need or inclination towards the complex social structures other supernaturals have but, to the other creatures...

  • Reread the chapter carefully after the excitement of the first day.

    I must say, I had high expectation for it both because it's Beast and because I was always passionate about the Civil War and the following years. I was not disappointed, hell, this was better than what I hoped it would be.

    You managed to treat delicate themes and values dissonances in a way that is both fair and yet entertaining. The supernaturals are truly well done and I could keep going on with the compliments but I would only repeat what others have said better than me.

    Again, to all...

  • It's part of the Dark Eras Companion, a supplement that was funded along the Dark Eras book that has been already published. It includes several new chapters, Forsaken By Rome being one of those.

    Those who pledged to the Kickstarter got the link to the advance copy today, but it will be eventually be released to the wider public as well...

  • Currently busy reading stuff from the Dark Eras Companion, especially the Mutapa Empire chapter which, while not the same as Congo both for time window and exact position, will certainly prove helpful.

    I'll probably change some things here and there from the plan I had in order to make my stuff fit. but I'm pleasantly surprised that quite a few of the ideas I had for certain aspects of the Chronicles of Darkness are not much different from what has been written there. Means I got something right, I hope

  • Finally back to work. It's 4 AM here and I don't have the energy to check this properly right now, but I'm posting it anyways because I'm glad to be back on this. Here you go people, beginning of the Beast chapter

    As a little sidenote, I might mention that I, as someone that enjoys both Werewolves greatly (despite and because of their differences), always thought that the reason the Forsaken's battle form was named Garou was an homage towards Apocalypse and how iconic it was there. When I think of the Garou, I always picture them in Crinos as my most immediate reaction. The same does not apply to Forsaken, at least for me: I don't have a "Uratha iconic shape". Not that's a bad thing, Forsaken does a better job at making you appreciate all the forms, something which required some digging beneath...

  • You can get something out of it, but it's a different era. The book is set in the Sixties, long after the Congo Free State was gone. It's a good book, and I read it when doing my research but, strictly speaking, has not much to offer to this specific era.

    It shows the consequences and impact the Free State had on Congo even in the following years and depicts living there in the Sixties in an interesting way, but my personal opinion is that it is a bit too distant from the colonial era to be of much use. Still a good read, though....

  • I'm not dead but my PC is. I'll venture into the Underworld to bring it back but in the meantime writing stuff on a large scale is sadly not possible. Things that happen, sorry everyone

    Met Kieron Gillen today, he signed my copy of The Wicked + The Divine, we spoke a little about the introductory fiction he's writing for Scion.

    It was cool and unexpected, with me living in Italy and all. Brightened my day.
