Every day we’re working on Skyblock and as we do so we encounter the familiar sensation of building on way more than we ever expected. So I thought I’d give you some heads up on what you’ll be seeing:
NPCs: You already knew this book’s main purpose was to provide pre-generated characters, both good and bad. We’re actually coming up with so many new characters that we’re starting to wonder if we’re going to have room for them all. That’s not even to say any of the characters are bad, but a lot of them we’re looking at and thinking “You know, this might go better in x expansion book in the future!” so we set them aside.
Organizations: We’ve got several organizations with names like: M.A.R.S., Coven of the Thorn, The Regime, Eastplains Church of God and the New Lalene reptoid city to name a few. Each Organization will go into detail about what they are about and how to use them in your game. Some are global, some are small, but each has a part to play in the overall setting.
Lore: Lore, lore lore! When we had our early drafts of the Man-Made Mythology core rules we were pushing 700 pages. We had to cut a lot of flavor to make room for the rules, which takes up a fairly large amount of real estate in the book. With the game mechanics out of the way, we’re going full throttle on creating a rich and vibrant campaign setting with Man-Made Mythology. Information on The Bronze is a given, but you’re also going to learn about the rich history of Mythics in the setting and how they went from being the stuff of urban legends and mythology to becoming known throughout the world as not only real, but loved by many (and hated by many) as they took center stage and changed a society forever.
Gear: There will be more gear added to the book as well. Some of it will be previewed on the website as a free download but even more will be added.
We don’t yet have an ETA yet on when Skyblock will be launching, but we’ll be posting teasers and page samples as we get closer to that time.
