  • Changing developers brought new life to 3e for sure. They aren't burdened by the weight of the 3e core book delay (legitimate though the reasons for it surely were). Personally, I'm also more a fan of Vance's style of writing mechanics than the "natural language" approach of the core book. However, of course, the new team has yet to release a splat book, and it remains to be seen how it turns out. Since it's Terrestrials next, and those were my favourites in 2e, there's a lot hanging on this for me.



    It's always hard to talk about sales, since we don't know...

  • The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch (2006) is about a gang of street level con artists. It was a while since I read it, but it reads like a fantasy heist novel.

    That said, planning is often ungrateful to show. The reason is that if you spend half a book setting up a plan, and the plan then goes off perfectly in the second part, then the second part is actually pretty boring. In order to keep the reader interested, you typically either let the characters plan off-screen and succeed, or show the planning and throw in a complication. That way, the reader is still kept in the dramatic...

They're about equivalent to fuck. Genital swears like "fitta" (cunt), and to a lesser extent "kuk" (cock) and "röv" (ass), are also on about this level. There are also bodily function swears, like "skit" (shit) and "piss" (exactly what it looks like), but they're slightly weaker....

    replied to Thinking About 3e Lunars
    There's always hope. From the sounds of it, the current devs at least have a strong thematic and aesthetic image of the Lunar Exalted. Of course, since everyone has their own idea of what the Lunars should be, it remains to be seen if that image falls out well with the community. I think there's a better chance of them coming out decent if there's a unified image behind them, though. Can't please everyone....

    Cheng I Sao - Eclispe?

    I had heard her name before, but I didn't really know what it was that she did. But when Extra History released this one-shot about Cheng I Sao (or Ching Shih), the pirate queen of China, I was struck by how much she sounded like an Eclipse.

    I'll put a spoiler here just in case you want to watch the video first. It's pretty cool in its own right.

    At least from how that video portrays her, it seems that her greatest power came from making alliances, cutting deals and perfecting her effective administration of her organisation. She comes to power by making her husband's
