I would point out that the original Codex Arcanis with all the maps is or at least was available as a free download. It won't show Almeric or the Abessios Dominion, but should be enough to put everything in perspective.

For those of us who are already into Arcanis, the maps from the Codex Arcanis are sufficient (even if they are somewhat out-dated politically). However, I'm concerned about new players who are interested in the game world without knowing about the Codex and wind up with no maps. Last I checked, the Codex Arcanis is a $5 download, but one has to know of its existence in order to make use of it.

Would it be possible to post a low res version that players/gm's could at least use to get the general gist of what has been created and where things are for the new players?

If you Google map of Onara it's the first image. If you're seeing what looks to be Italy, that's not it.

With a sweep of his hat,

Hi all, especially Henry, James and Pedro...


Just a quick question that I was going to post on the kickstarter comments but I believe it to be more prominent in this forum...

The question pertains to the Blessed Lands product and its inclusion in the Legends of Arcanis campaign document. Besides the amazing cartography, storytelling and setting, does the product contain any character obtainable options? If so will the campaign document be updated to reflect this new material at time of release?

I've a few old 3.5 Arcanis players wanting to try the new system, though they're are thinking of waiting for the new book...

By the way, the news on the ETA on the book, we are more than happy to wait till you are happy for its release... We a couple of tables in the UK would rather have you happy with a delayed release than unhappy meeting deadlines.

Thank you again...

Dan

Hello Dan,

Yes indeed, the book will have a chapter dedicated to new Backgrounds, Paths, Skills, Fighting Styles and Spells. How much depends on how many pages I can squeeze the preceeding four chapters into.

The rough TOC looks like this:

Table of Contents

Chapter One: History of the Blessed Lands

Chapter Two: The Blessed Lands

Chapter Three: The First City

Chapter Four: Personas Dramatis of the First City

Chapter Five: New Rules

Chapter Six: Bestiary

Though again, I may be able to squeeze in more material, depending on page count.

Thank you for your support and patience!

Hello again,

I just realized I failed to answer the call of the question.

Yes, Cody Bergman is going over the Campaign Document and incorpporating what is in the Blessed Lands book, so that when the book is delivered, you can make use of it.

I just got the Kickstarter email. If the rules chapter (at least) does make it out this year, that would be perfect timing. We're about to start a new home campaign with creating/finishing characters on Jan 1. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the new rules (then I'll just be waiting anxiously for the Ssethric and Kio books)...

The most recent kickstarter email says

Quote:
So I hope to have either the first four chapters of the book (which is the lion’s share) or (hopefully) the entire thing (Chapters 4 and 5 are the Rules and Bestiary respectively)


But the post above says

Quote:
Chapter Four: Personas Dramatis of the First City

Chapter Five: New Rules

Chapter Six: Bestiary


Have the number of chapters been reduced?

I don't believe so. I think Henry just accidentally said 4 & 5 when he meant 5 & 6.
