Sample Lunar Charms!

The Onyx Path blog has released a good selection of Lunar Charms for your previewing pleasure today!  Be sure to head on over and take a look at the awesome sauce they have cooked up!

Which one is your favorite?  Personally, I love Echo-Drinking Awareness!  Not only is it a really sweet ability in its own right, but it also has a cool Protean effect for animals with the Echolocation Merit.  And most importantly, it hints that there is an Echolocation Merit that you will be able to use to build your animals and Hybrid Body Transformations!

Hear that, Jim?  Looks like you need to add that to your Red Aurochs (™)!

Massive News Dump From Onyx Path!

Yesterday, Exalted fans got to drink from the firehose of teasers of upcoming books!

The name of the upcoming Exigents book was revealed: Exigents: Out of the Ashes, and we were told that beyond merely being able to make new Exalts raised up by the myriad gods and spirits that want to make that sacrifice, the book will also give us guidance on how to create completely new types of Exalted!!  It is impossible to overstate how important, how new, and how mind-glowingly amazing this book will be!

We were also told about a new setting book that they are getting rolling.  It will be called, Across the Eight Directions.  This one is super exciting!  It promises to detail a wealth of locations, societies, peoples, etc. all throughout the sprawling world of Creation, including old favorites, new places introduced in the Third Edition core book, and even brand new places we’ve never heard of before!  Someone please get me a time-machine so I can jump to the future and get this now!

And as you would expect, there is lots of chunky goodness about the upcoming Lunars: Fangs at the Gate, including a new ‘Protean’ keyword for Charms and shape-shifting, and the revelation that we will be getting (among others) Centipede Style and Swaying Grass Dance Style Martial Arts in the new book!

Go check out the official post yourself, and be sure to leave a comment for them showing how much you appreciate the hard work!

Backer T-Shirt for Dragon-Blooded: WFHW Released!

The 25th update for backers of Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought revealed the t-shirt design that had been promised as a stretch goal reward (image at right).  Rather than a piece of artwork from the new book, it is instead something like a wearable forum badge that shows that you backed the Kickstarter.

What do you think of the new shirt?  What is your favorite piece of available Exalted apparel?  Let us know in the comments!

Lunars Book Name Revealed!

In the Onyx Path Monday Meeting Notes this week, the title of the upcoming Lunars book has finally been revealed.  The new book will be called, Lunars: Fangs at the Gate.  We don’t know much else about it at this point, except that it is in the First Draft stage.

We have the utmost confidence in Vance and Minton that this version of the Lunars will be the best yet!  And if they can pull that off, then the new Lunars book may very well be the greatest RPG book ever published!

Here’s to my spider sorcerer that murdered his own twin sister (which he was madly in love with) just so he could wear her skin!  May he live again in Third Edition!
