Weekly Update 9.26

Disclaimer: This is being written about a project that is in progress, this is an attempt to give you a glimpse of the process of making the game. Abilities and powers discussed in this blog my not work as described here.

This week John and Anne have continued working through the feedback that they have gotten from their playtests. They're taking the feedback they’ve received and are working to fix some issues with some minor things like dice bloat, and making some parts of the the GM chapter more clear.

Some other assorted systems they’ve been working on are based around making combat feel fitting for a mythic story. With that in mind they’re working on things like mortal wounds and dying. They're also working on penalties associated with pain and battle fatigue, with the goal of making wounds matter during a fight. But if the idea of dying gloriously in combat doesn't appeal to you, they’re also looking at ways that would allow for character to escape battles if they really needed to. I usually am that guy...

Most systems though are now happily sitting around the 90% mark, and now John and Anne are working through getting all the 90's to 100's.

In the Art world, the cosmology maps are done and from the images I've seen they look amazing. I wish I could show them to you, but you’ll have to wait until the final product.

This upcoming week is John and Anne are going to put some more work into Devotional Blessings, the Crafting System, and making sure Character Creation is balanced and makes sense. As mentioned earlier, Anne’s going to be going back through the GM chapter just to make sure everything is as clear as she can make it.

So this week, there were no questions, if I missed any please PM me. Anne too is running out of questions for her Tuesday posts. If she doesn’t get any, she will definitely use that time to push forward with the books, but you might miss out on a Tuesday post.

But, because there were no questions. I started a discussion thread over on the general discussion forums. We’re a few weeks out from John’s posts about Aspects, so what characters are you thinking about making? I’ve had the mixed joy of playing a few characters recently, but I’ve been thinking about what they’d look like in the Hero’s Journey Universe. I’m interested to see what kind of character you’re thinking of… feel free to post over here with your thoughts.

Other than that have a great weekend!

Due to the overwhelming support for Egypt, next Monday will feature Anne discussing the Egyptian Devotional Domain.
