  1. I imagine it would be a browser based F2P game with a cash market.... The game would involve a screenshot of an inventory screen and a few lines about classes and crafting components... The gameplay would simply be forum based arguments about "why this sucks" vs. "why this is awesome".
  2. The Aumaua heads have gotten me more interested in the race as a potential character... Does this mean that Aumaua are limited to large, salt-water, aquatic origins (sea/ocean)? Or is there potential for freshwater dwelling Aumaua? I'm thinking about being the P:E "Swamp Thing"!
  3. This is fun! Here are TWO more to look at... and a recap of Nitlhem with the "Alignment" portion added. Davhád: God of Nature (fauna) Name and Aliases Aedyran name: Davhád Aliases: “Soulwood”, “Keeper of the Wilds” What is the god's portfolio? That is, what aspects of life or the world do they represent? God of Nature (fauna): wildlife, non-domesticated animals What allies and foes do they have amongst the other gods? Unknown without the rest of the Pantheon being revealed. Husband to Lustra* The pair work hand in hand to tend to the natural resources found in the PE realms. What are their symbols? A golden Falcon (or like bird) How do they manifest in the mortal world? Davhád (and Lustra) tend to remove themselves from the affairs of civilization to focus on nurturing wildlife and nature. Their followers are few and reserved for those with a shared interest in the natural realm (i.e. Druids). Davhád’s most common physical form is a golden Falcon, though he also chooses to manifest himself as other wild creatures, as well. Though Davhád tends to stay away from the affairs of Humans (and other races), he will use his power to preserve nature if/when it is severely threatened. Davhád understands the role that wildlife plays as a food source and accepts traditions of hunting and domesticating animals. Alignment: True Neutral; Davhád’s divine interest rests outside of the realms of the “civilized” world. His perspective is one of pacifism, unless nature or his followers are threatened. Lustra: God of Nature (flora) Name and Aliases Aedyran name: Lustra Aliases: “Wild Mother”, “Divine Flower” What is the god's portfolio? That is, what aspects of life or the world do they represent? God of Nature (flora): all plant life What allies and foes do they have amongst the other gods? Unknown without the rest of the Pantheon being revealed. Wife to Davhád* The pair work hand in hand to tend to the natural resources found in the PE realms. What are their symbols? A colorful flower (i.e. orchid, lotus, lily) How do they manifest in the mortal world? Lustra (and Davhád ) tend to remove themselves from the affairs of civilization to focus on nurturing wildlife and nature. Their followers are few and reserved for those with a shared interest in the natural realm (i.e. Druids). Lustra’s most common physical form is a pixie/fairy. Though Lustra tends to stay away from the affairs of Humans (and other races), she will use her power to preserve nature if/when it is severely threatened. Alignment: Chaotic Neutral; Lustra’s divine interest rests outside of the realms of the “civilized” world. Her perspective is one of pacifism, unless nature or her followers are threatened; however, unlike Davhád, Lustra takes a more aggressive stance to trespasses against nature. Her focus is on the flora aspect of nature, but she also concerns herself with wildlife and animals. Lustra is not accepting of the traditions of hunting and domestication and views these as a direct threat to her realm. She understands the need for farming, but it pains her to see any form of plant life have its natural growth manipulated. She has been known to take more direct action against those she feels are threatening nature. Lustra promotes the natural defenses of nature and uses those defenses against ‘mankind’. She has been known to use her pixie form to entrance a wayward trespasser and lead them to their death in the ‘bowels’ of a carnivorous plant species. Nitlhem: God of deception, lies, envy and political unrest What is the god's name, and what are his/her "aliases" (e.g., "The Twinned God" for Berath). Aedyran name: Nitlhem Aliases: “The Shadow”, “The Grand Deceiver”, “The Kingmaker” What is the god's portfolio? That is, what aspects of life or the world do they represent? God of deception, lies, envy and political unrest What allies and foes do they have amongst the other gods? Unknown without the rest of the Pantheon being revealed. One thought: Perhaps Nithelm had a sort of “fall from grace” and the other Gods believe that he has been banished from the divine pantheon forever. In reality, Nithelm has simply deceived the other Gods and still retains his power which he uses to discreetly sow seeds of discontent between, nations, races, factions, political opposition, etc. What are their symbols? A bat (animal); the color dark green (jealousy/envy); a concealed dagger with a green gem embedded in the hilt. How do they manifest in the mortal world? Nithelm only reveals his true self in the darkest shadows of night. He can manifest himself in a concealed manner as a large bat with notable green eyes. His humanoid form would be represented by a shadowy figure that seems almost ethereal when surrounded by darkness or shadow. His face is marred by a long scar stretching from his hairline vertically downward to his jaw line. Nithlem dresses dark and concealed with a long black velvet cloak with dark green accents at the collar and sleeve ends. He also wears a hood that is always pulled low over his brow. Nitlhem always carries a concealed dagger with a dark green jewel embedded in the hilt. The dark green eyes are also an attribute of the humanoid form. Nitlhem uses his power of deceit to influence mortal matters, particularly in a political sense. He seeks to supplant rulers of Nations with his own faithful followers. This is accomplished by sowing discontent among political factions and the people of a nation to facilitate uprisings and revolutions leaving the said nations in a weakened state full of uncertainty and shadowy power-plays. Nitlhem’s main goal is to bring the mortal beings into such a state of unrest and contention that the other Gods are forced to reveal themselves much more frequently; in this, Nitlhem hopes to weaken them by forcing them to deplete their powers in trying to control the mortal realm. He seeks to capitalize on these over-reached Gods to challenge them in a weakened state and regain his status in the pantheon. Ultimately Nitlhem seeks to gain enough power to banish the other Gods that would oppose him. Alignment: Chaotic Neutral; though many of Nitlhem’s methods and goals seem to be evil on a relative scale, in reality, Nitlhem will use any reasoning to achieve his goal. He will take advantage of and pervert a maniacal wanna-be-dictator based on envy, greed and lust for power, just as easily as he would play on the chivalry of the gallant knight, or a mother’s love for her children, or a scholar’s search for knowledge. Any tool for manipulation, good, evil, or indifferent, is suitable to Nitlhem. As long as it allows him to promote discontent.
  4. Neat idea. I'll try one. What is the god's name, and what are his/her "aliases" (e.g., "The Twinned God" for Berath). Aedyran name: Nitlhem Aliases: “The Shadow”, “The Grand Deceiver”, “The Kingmaker” What is the god's portfolio? That is, what aspects of life or the world do they represent (e.g., mortality, greed, summer, commerce)? God of deception, lies, envy and political unrest What allies and foes do they have amongst the other gods? Unknown without the rest of the Pantheon being revealed. One thought: Perhaps Nithelm had a sort of “fall from grace” and the other Gods believe that he has been banished from the divine pantheon forever.

  5. Early Backer Digital Tier ($20) + Expansion ($20) + Obsidian Order ($8')= $48 Wish I could jump to the $65 tier to get a physical copy, but with the expansion add-on, I just can't afford to go any higher.
  6. Multi-player co-op... ...or... ...if I suddenly come in to exorbitant amounts of cash!
  7. I am somewhat torn on this topic. In one sense, I'm a traditional "medeival-setting" rpg guy. You know, swords, sorcery, dungeons, dragons, et al. On the other hand, since this is a new IP, with a presumably new type of combat/character progression ruleset, it might be interesting to add firearms as a dynamic. Other thoughts: I think firearms would work better in a low-magic setting; whereas in a setting with powerful spells, firearms would probably end up being more of a novelty.
