    I assumed so, considering the limited space and such.

    More or less on the subject, if I may ask- which of the three (four? I know the Spoken are not going show to show up in the near future in any book) optional canon Exalts is your favorite?...

    Considering that usually my one spell was usually something like Burning Hands, and that I have had very little care about who falls in its range, it is either that or the DM being very merciful... which he wasn't. He was many thing, but "merciful" was definitely not one of them.

    I mean, there was that one time. when me and my group fought some lizardfolk, and I used Colour Spray which knocked out half of the party, leaving only the clerics and wizards standing. And the clerics fell first. It came to a point where my signature move was casting an AoE spell which included...

  • Was reading Sittard's when I thought to myself "hey, Urd is actually the Norse way to pronounce "Wyrd".". That' funny. Really funny. Not scary at all.

    I'm scared....

    I remember this time. I have used my dagger on such a regular basis that I wonder how my character actually survived for so long with 1 hp :P...

    So an Hearteater question-

    Will the Exigents appendix detail enough of who/what the Hearteaters where before their corruption in terms of their former themes, role and abilities to give us a general sense of not only what they are, but who they were?

  • So with the new Contagion preview, we also discover that they may shift the Lucifuge's origin from Inferno to the God Machine (something which was straight ruled out in Mortal Remains). I'm not sure how I feel about it, if it is true. Will have to wait for more info before I'll judge.

    Also, it looks like the AKD are officially the ones getting the cut as a core conspiracy, as they are the only ones not mentioned in the writeup among the big six, and their place is taken by the Council of Bones (the Ashwood Abbey is replaced by some group called S.W.O.R.N, which seem to have connections...

  • After reading Bend, I try to think how it may connect with what we know from Salem's Dark Era. I assume that the root of the Contagion is Salem was somewhat connected to those three buried children, perhaps also to Mister White in one way or another. Some things to think about. I must say that I kinda hoped that the Contagion won't be tied to the God Machine as it turned out- kinda brings a lot of baggage with it as it kinda gives the God Machine too much emphasis over the cosmologies of the other games, but it not like something which can't be easily reskinned.

    Making Salem's Witch...

  • I have a certain amount of free money right now, so if we will reach the goal I may try to get one. Not sure about locations, though- it would require some thought. Perhaps someplace in Egypt and in Australia....

  • So following the settings we have until now, if we were to tie a certain gameline per setting, I think Edinburgh is Mummy, Odense is Vampire, San Francisco is Geist, New Zealand is Changeling, DRC is Beast, Kyoto is Werewolf, Milton Keynes is Promethean, Acre is Mage and Santiago is Deviant. That leaves Hunter, Demon and the big "unknown" which we are waiting to discover since the 12 settings were announced :P

  • So after reading Santiago's setting for the Contagion Chronicles, doesn't it seem like Bird is the one responsible for this fresh hell? I mean, a bird-like monster with over-reaching sight which may be just channeling the power and a far more ancient avian monstrosity from a false dimension? Yeah, that's Bird all right.

  • My original thought was that it was intentional, which is why I didn't said anything about it originally- but then I started to get the impression it was a mistake, so thank you for clarifying the issue. It was just really weird without that context....

  • That what makes it even more weird- I mean, they had the right word with the right meaning, but they failed at transliterating it. They didn't had to do a lot for it- they could have looked at Wikitionary to see how it should be pronounced, in case they didn't had access to an Hebrew speaker. The current transliteration means practically nothing in Hebrew. That together with them initially putting Acre in southern Israel- which again, you can look at Wikipedia to see it is in the north in case they don't have anyone to ask. And I'm not mentioning some more subtle nuances, as that would already...

  • Yeah, I know- what I meant was that it does not sound like Hebrew at all. Not only like the actual word (again, Hoffer), but Hebrew words just don't sound like that. Hebrew is much harsher, sound wise- so while it is meant to be Hebrew, it is not....

  • Is it?

    I mean, I am an Hebrew native speaker, and if it is meant to be חופר, it is not how I would have written it. In fact, if I were to just pronounce the word as it is written, I won't be able to pronounce it correctly. If it means to be "חופר/digger", it should be Hoffer or something like that, not Hwfyll....

  • So I must say that Acre would not have been my first choice for an Israeli setting (or the second, or the fourth)- but it is a very interesting choice. Presenting it as a city trapped in its own past is a nice presentation of it. One of the things which kinda bother me is that it is placed for some reason in "Southern Israel", when it is in fact part of the northern district (and I mean, it is so up north that if that's the south, then there is no much left). It is just... weird.

  • Wait... fragments of a lost language? Message from the God Machine? The mesoamerican civilizations having fragments of it and trying to solve it?

    God-Machine damn it! The "Black Sun Map" is a Contagion, Marco Singe and the whole Deva Corporation spread it and we are all infected!

    EDIT: God Machine Double damn it, the Curses of the Furies are Strains of the Contagion by themselves!

  • From the brief look I gave it it looks good. Starting from the example fiction, I must say that I immediately felt sorry for the characters- going all the way from Eilat to Acre only to be stopped and sent back? Now, that's just mean. Even my sister's reaction was "come on!".

    Seriously, one has to be really desperate to try and do it, so that heirarch is a real bastard :P...
