    I agree with you wholly on a theoretical level. It may come from the fact that I had 1e box sineaters based on premise dc characters, but it really took me time to see what they'd evolve into in 2e.

    Though, that being said, I can agree with you on a level. Mister Freeze was strongly defined by his Archetype and his Key, but I just love the feel of Thresholds versus keys. It took me a long time to really feel one out for him. His wife was a ghost and he lingered for her, trying to keep their romance alive, and he was a solid Forgotten (dying in that lab accident) and Bonepicker...

    I definitely agree that the 1e Manifestation was amazing and flavorful and way too complicated. While it made my npc sineaters like Mister Freeze and El Diablo feel so unique and easy to design, it was way too complicated to do the whole row and column approach.

    Appropriately, I mourn the evocative feel they brought to every Bound, much as i mourn how evocative the Theshholds were. While the keys still have a bit of that threshold vibe, I haven't been able to fully fall in love with the new x splat.

    I will say, however, Haunts really made it easier to design my npcs....

    I am really looking forward to this, even if I have to fiddle with things to get it to work with a crossover group. I remember the amazing discussions we had in open development of 1e, and I know that the writers and I and other fans had discussions that didn't make it into 1e but could in 2e.

    Also, ironically, in 1e in the beginning, my only mummy related pc wad a sekhem sorcerer. We played him as the normal reincarnation of the first sorcerer that my npc mummy had as high priest. Then, guildhalls said at least the Scribes ban and kill arkham sorcerers, so I had to retcon a lot...

    While I do love the idea of mummies unstuck in linear time (I used that concept even before the sothic turn book made it explicitly possible), I have misgivings about the "starter level experience" thing. I know the Descent isn't gone, but part of mummy's draw was starting off overpowered like endgame. Granted, mummy had very clear character progression (pillars, new utterances, new affinities, talismans, merits) so is this really that different? Is our first Descent going to be as "weak as a starting vampire? Is Sekhem being redesigned so that it still makes a freshly arisen...
