A Comic Teaser
Here's a look at how the EX3 text is progressing:
From Holden: "Bureaucracy Charms are down, Crunch Team Prime is now banging away on Craft. Objective: Lightweight, easy rules that make playing a crafting Solar fun. The social engine, larceny rules, investigation rules, and leadership rules, along with Charms dealing with all of the above, have now been sent out to playtesters, officially kicking off Phase 2 of the playtest."
He wants to be sure that we stress that only 3 Abilities remain to have their Charms done (Occult, Lore, Craft), and playtesting has entered Phase 2 (complete social mechanics and associated Charms, plus Investigation and Larceny).
The EX3 Novels remain in the pitch/outline phases but we are talking to the authors this week, and the EX3 Comic is more than 3/4s finished. Check out below for some page samples in progress. Composer James Semple (he created the music we used in the KS video) is composing for the EX3 Music Suites. He and I have been exchanging music concepts for the Dragon Blooded and we're really close to having that theme finished- which means he can apply the lessons learned with DB to the other Exalted.
Here are some excepts from Jim Zub and Hanzo's work in progress on the EX3 Comic- these are unapproved by CCP, so they could still change. As a fun note: several backer characters appear on these pages:
