Hello Deluxe Exalted 3rd Edition Backers!

RichT here:

This month, I want to share with you the link to an interview of Eric Minton, one of our current Exalted developers, on the Onyx Pathcast, our weekly podcast for all things Onyx Path. You can find it hosted on PodBean, or on your preferred podcast venue:

https://onyxpathcast.podbean.com/

In this excellent in-depth interview, Eric responds to such topics as:

  • Eric's history with Exalted and freelancing (including a brush with Paranoia)
  • Development of Infernals: The Manual of Exalted Power
  • Starting as a fan and coming up through the community
  • The Exalted stable, and the challenge of hiring new writers
  • What drew Eric to Exalted
  • Thoughts behind the design of Third Edition
  • Some teasing of War in the West
  • The experience of working on Dragon-Blooded
  • Learning how to be developers, and working collaboratively as devs
  • Some discussion of Lunars
  • A fifteen-book plan!
  • Inclusivity in Exalted
  • NSFW: Eddy talks about the development process of Exxxalted
  • Relating to the Exalted community
  • A teaser of Exigents

A Brief Note About Our Current Kickstarter:

We are in the last week for the Kickstarter for Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition! So far we've achieved ten Stretch Goals and are starting to pick up steam again after the traditional mid-campaign slow down! If the very brief bit of info below sounds interesting, please come check it out before it's over!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/geist-the-sin-eaters-2nd-edition

In Geist: The Sin-Eaters, you play a person who died with a powerful burden on their soul — something they didn't accomplish in life, or something they never found. On the other side of the veil, they made a bargain with a powerful being called a geist, which returned them to the world of the living and to their own body, at the cost of a permanent bond between them and the geist. Now your character stands as a medium, with one foot in the world of the living and one in the world of the dead.

Hello Deluxe Exalted 3rd Edition Backers!

RichT here:

A lot is happening with projects for the Exalted 3rd game line as we have added projects based on the Dragon-Blooded Kickstarter, starting with the DB companion book, Heirs to the Shogunate, which joins our project list below!

Our Exalted novels were reviewed by our dev team and the authors are working to incorporate the changes suggested - mostly tweaks that bring the fiction into line with the direction the devs are taking EX3. I was able to hear more EX3 Music Suite 2 compositions including an 8 minute "exploration" theme, we're still getting the last writers contracted for the Exalted Essay Anthology, and see below for our latest monthly PDF offerings.

A Brief Note About Our Current Kickstarter:

On Monday, July 2nd, 12 noon Eastern US time, we start the Kickstarter for Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition! If the very brief bit of info below sounds interesting, we'll have a lot more when the KS goes live - love to see you there!

In Geist: The Sin-Eaters, you play a person who died with a powerful burden on their soul — something they didn't accomplish in life, or something they never found.

Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought Kickstarter:

Yesterday we started our latest Kickstarter campaign, for the Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought source book, or "fatsplat" book, for the Exalted 3rd Edition game line.

Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought introduces the Dragon-Blooded in 3rd Edition and all the rules necessary to feature them as player characters or NPC antagonists, including character creation rules and the element-based Dragon-Blooded Charm set of powers. This book will give an iconic view of the Dragon-Blooded, from their mythic origins as the armies of the gods to their place in the current era.

Because we made sure that the complete text for this book was finished before we ran Dragon-Blooded's KS, we can provide one quarter (more or less) of the book's text to backers each week of the campaign and get their feedback along the way. (Plus, if a backer doesn't like the text, they can cancel their pledge before the KS is over). This is the first big book for our new dev team, and judging by what we're hearing, it seems they've knocked the (fire)ball out of the park with this one!

So if that sounds interesting, please check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/dragon-blooded-what-fire-has-wrought-for-exalted-3
