We'll have to chalk this one up to story reaosns. In my vision of the Soldier-Saints, I see them as made up of tranditions from the Knights and Equestrian orders of Milandir and the Coryani Empire (and by extension, Almeric).

Altherians, Cancerise, Yhing Hir, etc just don't fit that vision.


And of their own? i.e. Blessed Lands? Possibly a family line of knights? Or would a knight have to keep his family based in Coryan for that to work? I suppose the knights might not have family (Since they're all so dedicated) but between them, their squires, servants, etc, it seems like there should be some families associated with the order

I think you're stretching to find the exception to the rule.

No ,the SSoD don't keep families with them. Theirs is a very dangerous life and looking after their spouses and children is not what they do.

So no...

Heelo Steve,

Your cert came with unique val'Vasik Bloodline powers.

The Tultipetan dwarves cert had nothing of the sort.

Hence why adding the Runic Warrior was a way to give them something uniquely theirs.

Personally, Henry, I want to thank you for the Runic Warrior option. I think it was the good and fair divide after we the PCs failed to acquire runes for everyone. I remember at the time thinking it was unfair for the Tultipetan players to not have access to their own magic because we failed to get it in the interactive. I was very glad to see the option in the book, and I'm someone who failed to by a Tultipetan character like I should have in the Kickstarter.

With the introduction of ranged Fighting Styles (Arrow Storm and Galloping Rain), the [Stance] rules need to be updated.

Quote:
Stance: If you possess more than one Stance Talent, you
must announce which Stance you wish to use before you
perform any attack rolls. All benefits and penalties remain
in effect until the beginning of your next action. You must
be in melee combat and perform a melee attack to utilize any
Stance Talent
, and you may only benefit from a single Stance
Talent at any one time.


Suggested change: "You must perform an attack Action Roll with an eligible Weapon to utilize any Stance Talent."

so Warriors of the Soldier-Saints of Dagha requires that Heroes must have completed the Rigors of the Penitent before taking this Path. Is there any knowledge of what that entails, and is there a means for players to acquire the option to take this?

Is this something planned to come out in a module or as a stand alone, like the Entzara thing was (and may be again?) in the old campaign.

It is intended as a standalone mod, similar to Ehtzara and Warrior of the Eternal Flame. As of this date it has not yet been released.

Does the Church of the Dark Triumvirate maintain a presence in the First City and hold religious ceremonies at the Temple of the Pantheon?

Yes, as there are references to Cancerese in the area implying that at least some elements of the Dark Triumvirate are there. As to the later, the answer is an overwhelming "maybe." There is probably a higher number of Cancerese in the city than Death Mongers, but it is not enough of a presence to stand up to the 'big three' of the Kalindruhl, the MCoC, and the Milandisians. Page 86 suggests that the Temple of the Pantheon is split between the various factions, but the mentioned Big Three get the most choice days, as per Vexing Priests, IIRC.

What sort of presence the Dark Triumvirate might have in the First City begs the question of how much of a "proselytizing" religion it is. I never got the impression that the Dark Apostate was that interested in spreading their religion across Onara. So I wouldn't think they would have any priests outside of Canceri spreading the faith as it were. They might travel for other purposes though. Just my two cents on the subject. :)
