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.
+Kevin Crawford Sadface. I get it. But still. Sadface.
That would be great to have something similar for SwN Psychics. Good job. :)
Awesome! Great to hear Kevin.
(puts on the Cheshire Cat Grin of Great Anticipation) Exxxcellent...
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 can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait.
So looking forward to this!
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 Brown he has indicated April or May, depending on various factors.
Many thanks for the response! Here's hoping things work out for April :D
I hunger for this book. I will be purchasing it the moment I find out it's available for purchase!
