    Vance's said monstrances are sticking around (in no small part for their aesthetics). No killswitches.

    Vance's said they're dropping Eye's mind games with his Abyssals (which were a 1e and 2e sin), and he'll be playing the gothic mad scientist to the hilt....

    Nothing on the schedule.

    The book in question was Towers of the Mighty, which eventually got pitched under Vance and co, but nothing's been mentioned of it yet (which is not to say nothing will come of it - it took a while for Sidereals to be greenlit)....

    The issue being that what Abyssals were geared to be in 2e - the ultimate killers, created from inverted Solar Exaltations, and intended to kill the world - is, well, a weak foundation to build on for a whole splat's Charmset; you need more than that to articulate the Abyssal Charmset as something distinctive in its own right. Morke was onto something with having the Deathlords as major sources of Abyssal Charm themes, if nothing else....

    Mm. There's a line in the Essence Liminals writeup that if a Liminal's connection is abusive, then breaking that connection through healing has the same effect as neglect/death, which I summarised as 'resolution'....

    replied to 3E Deathlords
    Vance has said that out of universe they want Abyssal villainy to be more Byronic than Killfuck Soulshitter, and that's the motive for introducing the chivalry of death.

    As for the reality behind it, the issue is that the Deathlords are bothering with the Neverborn's agenda at all, and in doing so making themselves existential threats, right?

    It occurs it may be a matter of threat prioritization; the Deathlords are acting in pursuit of an agenda that's ultimately inimical to all life, no matter how reluctant they are about it, and that in this view should make them OOC...

    Only in the Essence manuscript. If they lose that connection, whether through neglect, resolution, or death of the living person, all living creatures start to shun them instinctively, and the following occurs:...

    replied to 3E Deathlords
    To sum up Vance's comments on the matter: as best the Deathlords can tell, the Neverborn seem to want Abyssals to act more in line with the chivalry of death rather than Killfuck Soulshitter - while in the long run their agenda is at odds with the continued existence of life, they don't want everything to die instantly and all at once, and they don't want simple 'kill kill kill' or mass murder. They want the living to know soul-crushing despair before they die, and Killfuck Soulshitter is at odds with that.

    The Deathlords aren't operating on any sort of immediate timescale, but they...

    replied to 3E Deathlords
    Vance's said that for 3e, while the Deathlords are all vengeful ghosts of the Usurpation, they're not all Solars (though they're not locking any of them to a particular Exalt type). Also, the writing team aren't pinning down a specific number this time - the classic set are still around, and they may add one or two, but the actual number can range from them being the only ones to as many more as an individual table sees fit.

    Also also, the Deathlords aren't exactly in on this whole 'destroying Creation' thing, but they very much have to at least look like they are, because they're...

    replied to 3E Deathlords
    One thing Vance's mentioned is making it so working for a Deathlord is fun, rather than something that makes players immediately run for the hills. They're not exactly going to be good, but you should be able to understand working for them (see also the Lunar elders).

    Infernals should be the next fatsplat. We have no idea where they'll slot Liminals and Getimians (which won't be fatsplats but closer to the rest of the line in size)....

    I mean, Death's Lawgivers is one of their epithets, and there'll be Charms that reflect that side of their nature per Vance, raising up empires of the dead and imposing order on the Underworld....

    Generally not, due to said variance between products. Once something hits Proofing, then it's probably going to be 1-2 months before release, the variance being because Paradox's approvals can be anything from a week to a month.

    However, Rich's indicated in a Monday Meeting that the Abyssals Kickstarter is on the schedule for 2023 - it's not unfounded, as Sidereals practically zipped through the writing/editing stages, so... fingers crossed....
