All right. The Lexicon of the Throne's Word/Gift creation guidelines are just about written. They're broken up into two main chunks- a section discussing general considerations when building gifts and Words, and a section discussing how to make specific types of gifts. The subheads are below.

General Considerations: Better Gifts and Worse Gifts, Effort Costs, Keeping Gifts Flat, Miracles and Specific Utility, Reskinning Gifts, and Types of Damage

Types of Gifts: Armor-Booster Gifts, Attack-Booster Gifts, Damage Negation Gifts, Direct-Damage Gifts, Immunity Gifts, Instant Death Gifts, Mind-Influencing Gifts, Object Creation Gifts, Summoning GIfts, and Weapon-Booster Gifts

It closes off with a checklist for Word and gift creation for taking into account certain details. I might add some further gift type hints and possibly add another section or two to general considerations, but it's pretty much set for now. I expect the total size of the guidelines to be around 10 pages.

Did you decide to put in the individual Word discussions and/or NPCs, or did you elect to not?

I'm probably going to clip the individual Word discussions and NPCs, as a lot of it would be repetitious, and the NPCs would be very setting-specific in utility.

That would be great to have something similar for SwN Psychics. Good job. :)

One or two and explaining how they fit into the paradigm might be good, but 10 pages is already a lot to devote to a "how to" for 3rd parties. I am really looking forward to this book.

I absolutely love the Godbound setting, and I really want to play a dragon god, I read elsewhere you were planning for a spring release date for Lexicon of the Throne, have you narrowed the release date down to a particular month yet? A further question, do you have any plans for additional supplements like the Ancallia one for the other nations?

Keep up the fantastic work,
Zachary
