Integrating Backer Feedback & Determining the Future of the City of 7 Seraphs

New Map Design!

Backers! At the end of December we asked you for feedback on the alpha PDF and you did not disappoint! Over the last five weeks we received a flood of awesome insights, observations, and requests for clarifications (and edits). We have been improving 3pp compatibility (with rules systems like Spheres of Power, and Akashic Mysteries), tweaking game mechanics, adding new reference tools, and refining presentation (see above).

Thank you for all the kind words, suggestions, and helpful critique.

Sorting through all of the feedback has been a challenging and labor intensive task but it will make the final book MUCH better. And we are nearly wrapped up with everything that we have got (some as recently as a few days back) but we are hoping to cut off any more feedback soon to wrap up the final edit of the book. We are endeavoring to get an indexed version of the PDF to you shortly. We will use that version to order color print proofs.

We could never have done all this without your amazing support.

But if you are willing, we do still need your help for another kind of feedback!

The Pathfinder RPG's coming edition shift certainly surprised us last year and has us wondering what version or rules system our backers want to see us work in the  most. Should we stay in the Pathfinder 1E/3.5 compatible realm or move on? Switch elsewhere? Concentrate on setting information that is system agnostic? Release in-world fiction? Help us determine the future of the City of 7 Seraphs in new products after the final release. This survey is totally optional and will not impact your rewards if you don't take it. Let us know where you stand here:

Thank you again for everything (especially the patience)!

      That new map looks great. It's one of the things I missed in the alpha. The maps of the individual districts were good, but I found that since each district's map was separate so they appeared in different areas of the book, it was hard to get an overall picture of the city. It wasn't even clear which way different sections were oriented in relation to each other.

      One thing that I feel would be really helpful would be an image of a streetscape or street level scene, where you can see one of the walls between districts, how it cordons off the districts, etc.

      Path 1ED/3.X please; I would expect that many of the people who backed this book intended it to be played in such a system. 'sides, converting it as this point to Path 2ED or 5E seems like it will then demand an update to Akashic rules to either system.

      5e/System Agnostic would be great, i've really moved over to 5e these last few months.
