  • That's not the only logic involved; as Meghan discussed earlier in the thread, it's which kiths are _thematically_ aligned to what the Regalia represent. So Sword encompasses kiths with themes of strength and aggression, Shield kiths with themes of defense and protection, etc.

    Elementals have an affinity for Sword and Ogres for Shield, but no-one's going to argue only those Seemings can orientate towards the themes of those Regalia....

    ...And keeping up Exalted tradition, Arms hit Gold on DriveThru within a day after release.

    The stages Origin and Hero are at, Development and Art Direction, are variable to say the least, especially since the two of them're corebooks, and so longer than standard books. Given Hero's yet to enter Art Direction, it'll be another few months at least, certainly not this year.

    So... yeah, I get the excitement, and what I'd suggest is to be careful with it, pace it out, not let it curdle or fester into resentment. Enjoy other things while you're waiting....

    It depends on the company. For Onyx Path, it's usually somewhere in the 19:00-21:00 GMT range, but occasionally it can be an hour or two earlier....

    They stopped making estimates on when things would be released after finding it didn't work out (unexpected delays in production and the like)....

    Hm. They might be noodling this around already, but would people be up for licensed community content, a la Storyteller's Vault, as a stretch goal? (For those unfamiliar with it, this would mean you could put fan stuff for the Continuum up for sale on a royalty basis, as long as you adhered to Onyx Path's guidelines.)

    Word of 'uber-dev' Ian Watson is that the Continuum core will have a Super-Science section, including rules for Advanced Science (mundane tech about a decade ahead of its time), Inspired Science (tech which can only be created by one of the Inspired, but usable by anyone), and Powered Science (tech that can only be created and used by the Inspired, as it's powered by their Source, most likely Psi or Quantum)....

    Mm. Maybe something like the Exalted 3E KS, which managed to get a comic as a stretch goal?...

    This is an interesting one, because Aeon and core Continuum are distinct genres - Aeon is future sci-fi kitchen sink, while core Continuum is present-day action-adventure kitchen sink.

    So, what might be likely?

    T-shirts. That's basically an OP given at this point.
    Jumpstarts for both settings.
    Pregens for both settings.
    Extra Allegiances for both.
    Aeon translation guide.
    ...An anthology would be odd. I could see limiting it to Aeon or the core, or opening up the breadth of the Continuum.
    Something like the Demon Seed collection for...

    Worth pointing out that the KS is gonna be for the Continuum corebook and Aeon, which means stuff for Aeon, the present day, and setting-neutral stuff is all potentially on the table.

    That's when the PDF's out. The notification of approval comes in two forms: if it's not a Kickstarted book, it normally comes when Rich announces it's going up on DriveThru this week in the Monday Meeting posts. If it is a Kickstarted book, then Rich will announce it's going out to backers in Monday Meeting.

    So for Arms, it'll be Rich announcing it's going up on DriveThru....

    replied to Convention Books word counts
    Running a copy-paste into a text document, the Revised Tradbooks come in at 60-75k words, while the Convention books come in about 50-55k words, so that's about 25% between the shortest Convention book and the longest Tradition book and about 8-9% between longest Convention book and shortest Tradbook..

  • The original vampires of South America, comprising at least six clan/bloodline equivalents - the Karai Pyhare, the Lostundo, the Cipactli, the Kalku, the Unhudo and the Titlacauan. They currently claim to be Kindred, if not Cainites, but whether they actually are part of the Kindred family tree or they're creatures possessed of shifting Blood that only now emulates the Kindred is another matter.

    The Cipactli claim the Tlacique bloodline as another family, and the Baron of the Samedi is at the very least aware of the Drowned....

    According to this month's KS update, there was a slow down due to personal issues with the Adversaries creative team, but releases should be up and rolling again soon....

    Here we go. IRC session for RPG.net.

    Turns out the Nemetondevos PSP is about drawing power from the land and shrines.

    (I had a vague memory of that nagging at me when I wrote my earlier replies, but it wasn't on the wiki.)...

    With the Nemetondevos, Neall's said it was the obliteration of their people in the Gallic Wars that destroyed the pantheon....

    Hm. Neall's said the Nemetondevos are the game's primary example of a dead pantheon - ie, it's not just that a number of the gods are dead, but that the pantheon is essentially dead too, with the shrines abandoned or destroyed, the worshippers killed or enslaved, and the gods dead or in the Underworld, with virtually all knowledge of them wiped out...

    It could be that basically, with the pantheon gone, there's no PSP any more... and making one would be a goal as their Incarnates ascend to godhood again.

    Last Neall said, a chunk of the Nemetondevos are in the cycle of reincarnation (ie, Incarnate candidates), while the others are sitting in their Underworld, really upset.

    The last he said on reincarnation, meanwhile, it involves partially rebuilding your Mantle from the ground up - I think the idea is there's a good part of your Mantle still there, something that embodies the archetypes and power of your previous incarnation, but you have a certain degree of leeway in remaking it.

    So... not all the Nemetondevos are dead, and even the ones who are still have a fair part...
