Thank you all for your continued patience. We wanted to take a moment to address mounting backer concerns about delivery. City of 7 Seraphs has been a collaboration of nearly 50 designers, artists, writers, and other creatives. Often times one or another of these individuals has access to the only active developmental copy of the product. Other times, artists waited for turnovers that needed completion before they could illustrate a character or locale. That meant if a single delay of a week or two were to happen, the next in sequence had to wait. If this were to continue from each of these people, it could compounded to months or years of delay. Fortunately, it hasn’t happened to everyone.
But it has happened.
Family illness, hardware crashes, and more have caused isolated periods of delay throughout the entirety of production.
These delays caused people who were waiting on work to have to take new assignments, reducing availability for when their turn in the design sequence came up. If further delays occurred in the period with working files, this only compounded. These sort of hand-offs are the ONLY reason the project is slowed in its delivery.
It has come to our attention that some backers and fans have become excited enough to contact contributors to the project directly. Please refrain from doing this. Most of them only had visibility to a select window of the production process and very few of them are actively engaged on the project as it draws toward its end.
These updates will continue to be the most current information we have to give. The last few weeks we have been hesitant to post a definitive PDF delivery date because each time we have updated since September unforeseen and unrelated issues have collided to extend deadlines. We don’t want to continue to give dates or windows and miss them.
The project passed 500 pages in length and some of the issues have been preserving the enormous body of content while maintaining printing costs at estimates. We will release a proofing copy to backers the moment our current freelancers are done with their assignments. Yes, they are running late, but only a little after waiting patiently for their turn to work on this project.
We understand on a broad view the delays are upsetting. They are upsetting to us too. Please continue to hang on. We want nothing more to get this incredible product to you. Watch this space for news soon.
Thanks to our awesome backer Kyle for catching the error with the Successor Discount code! Here is the corrected code:
Happy Thanksgiving to our backers!
Celebrating or not, we are so so grateful for your support and patience. We wanted you all to know that T-Shirts and Posters have shipped from our suppliers and should be here shortly. If you only backed for these physical items they will be shipped out shortly after they arrive.
PDF layout is proceding on the main book and we hope to have that out in the next couple weeks.
Additionally, Co7S contributor Sasha Lindley Hall--our resident Steamwalker technomagical genius and mad scientist--has something fresh from the labs!
An elder ring said to carry a terrible curse. A sword sworn to turn back the armies of darkness. A simple cloak that makes a young girl unseen. What hero can master all these items and more?
Born of ancient lineages and destined to awaken the powers of heirlooms of fantastic power the successor is a new base class for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Mastering heirlooms of four different legacies, the successor takes the mastery of item based magic to a new level. This base class includes:
- Four legacies to allow you to further expand the powers of magic items.
- Dozens of Legacy Powers to unlock your items secrets.
- New feats and favored class bonuses.
- 5 Archetypes to allow new options to explore heirlooms with other classes.
- New lore about the class and its connections to the City of 7 Seraphs.

Thank you for your continued support!
Final layout continues on the title as all art assets are FINALLY in. We are hopeful that the PDF will be completed soon and that we can move to print. We can't apologize enough for the delays in the process (despite most of them being out of our hands).
We have not however been idle during our waiting time however! Partnering with City of 7 Seraphs team member N. Jolly and rising talent Siobhan Bjorknas (Spheres of Might, Aetheric Heroes) we have created 4 new base classes utilizing the critically acclaimed Spheres system to continue the mission of expanded 3rd Party Support and permissive gaming that is part of this project.
These products all feature a section on how they can be used in the City of 7 Seraphs setting and useful appendixes of content from other sources.
You can find them on sale here at a special bundle discount. We hope you check them out and can't wait to show you the City in earnest soon.
Thank you again for you patience and support!
