Back on track for the end of the month update - no pumpkin carving this time! Funny enough, today's big task was taking my car in to get the winter tires put on. I remember taking the car in at the start of spring to have the winter tires taken off and trying to explain this Dragon-Blooded kickstarter to the people in the waiting room. Good times!
So, our regular month-end Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought summary. It's a similar refrain - we're getting close to the backer PDF release. Not much to add to that, but progress is being made, sometimes incremental, sometimes in great bounds, and it won't be too much longer.
So, on to the regular monthly updates:
The Onyx Path crew, including Dixie, Rich, Lisa, Matt, Eddy, Danielle, and other Onyx Path writers and developers will be at PAX Unplugged in Philly, November 30th – December 2nd. They're in booth #2133 and will be hanging out, selling books and running a lot of demos and playtests all through the convention.They have two separate tables in the demo area, so there should be lots to sit in on. If you're in the area, come by and say hi!

Robert Vance was happy to point out that Across the Eight Directions had entered the first draft phase, as has our first Dragon-Blooded novella!
From the frozen North to the burning South, and all directions in between, there are creatures that stalk Creation. Demons, spirits, monsters and even creatures who live alongside mankind are in every region.
In this collection you will find new foes, encounter old enemies, and learn the secrets of these denizens of Exalted 3rd Edition’s wondrous world
From the bustling streets of Nexus to the savage western seas, Creation is ripe with threats to mortals and Chosen alike. Crooked traders, vile occultists, and even zealous protectors of the Realm can be found in every city, satrapy, and region waiting for unsuspecting targets or standing their ground as they prepare for the inevitable.
In this collection you will meet new foes, encounter old enemies, and learn the inner workings of several different factions and societies dedicated to criminal activity, nefarious plotting, and more.
Quick-witted and clever, with a sharp tongue, Peremuz served his creator for several years as a laboratory assistant, conversationalist, messenger, and spy. But when Lofty Raiton died, her progeny bickered over ownership of Peremuz as though he were a pet or a tool rather than a person. Shouldering a pouch full of coin, he departed to make his own destiny.
