August 29th 2014 Monthly Update

     It's that time of month where I give my "State of the Suzerain" address. Another month where we've had that glorious word - Momentum - and another month with a big release.

     I'll begin with news about the Continuum Editions. This month we finished the Continuum version of Millennium Knights, so that means we have Dogs of Hades, Noir Knights, Millennium Knights, Caladon Falls, Shanghai Vampocalypse and of course Savage Suzerain itself. Only Tomb of the Lich Queen remains to be updated from our "big book" settings.

     Last month we ordered print proofs of all the variants of all the print versions for each of the books. I said, and I quote, "...and assuming the proofs look good, we'll be offering print copies on DriveThruRPG (external link) imminently". Sadly, the print proofs didn't look good, at least not by our exacting standards, and we thrashed the issues around with OneBookShelf to see what could be done. We have a new set of files and will be ordering new proofs any day now, together with print proofs of the new, Continuum edition of Millennium Knights and the fresh-off-the-press Machine of the Lich Queen.

     Yes, I did say that. It's all true, folks. Machine of the Lich Queen is finished (both Savage Worlds and Pathfinder variants). PDFs will be going out to the Kickstarter backers who have been waiting for them, and we can get right on to those print proofs so we can offer the world shiny hold-in-your-hand copies.

     That's not the only progress on Dungeonlands though. I received the final fiction for the trilogy this week, which will go into Palace of the Lich Queen (the final book of the trilogy), and with that and the 27 encounters we already have written we're well on the way. Because we've finished Machine of the Lich Queen we've also got a good idea what art is available to the Palace book, which means we can now take the fiction, the art and the 27 encounters and triangulate. This is the fun stuff, I don't mind saying, when we take art and fiction and roleplay ideas and mix them up to create something bigger than any one would have made on their own. September's going to be a fun month on that score.

     Last month I also mentioned I'd have secret things to talk about, and so I do. We've been working hard on another of our big books, and it's in layout now for a September launch... Set Rising. We're very excited about that. But that's not all. We're also working on five alternate openings for Dungeonlands, including adventures by guest writers like John Wick and David Jarvis. I'm expecting to have the manuscripts for those finished, statted, and through edit in the next 48 hours. Then it's just layout and we're ready to go live. September will see both of those hit.

     More exciting times. More wins for everyone. More momentum!

     Happy Suzeraining!

     For Suzerain, realms are the fundamental unit of geography on a universal scale. They represent places where things happen at a certain point in time or era. Victorian Europe and modern Europe are different realms as a result.

     The cosmos of Suzerain can be divided into two halves: the mortal realms, made up of the physical world and its spirit world analog on the one hand, and the Maelstrom's immortal realms on the other.

     The realms of Suzerain are grouped together into four 'families':

     Timeline realms cover Earth up to today, and a little into the future, to the point where mankind discovered Pulse and through the Pulse War that followed. SuzeWiki pages linked specifically to the Timeline realms are marked with this symbol:


     Elements realms cover the quadrants of Earth once it was divided by the Barriers, includes the time when the Barriers came down and up to the point where mankind left the planet to colonize other worlds for the first time. SuzeWiki pages linked specifically to the Elements realms are marked with this symbol:


     Catalyst realms cover everything thereafter, from the moment mankind settled other worlds through to the End Times. SuzeWiki pages linked specifically to the Catalyst realms are marked with this symbol:


     Maelstrom realms are the immortal realms of the gods and other beings of divine power. As such, they're outside the normal flow of mortal time. SuzeWiki pages linked specifically to the Maelstrom realms are marked with this symbol:


Did You Know?

     1. The Maelstrom is a part of Suzerain's cosmos that has no physical existence per se, no land, no water, no trees and grass and rock and dirt. It is a mere chaos of energy, constantly in motion, a far flung part of the spirit world that has no correspondence to any reality we know and is shielded from mortal time by the Veil.

     2. In the Catalyst realm of Garden Of Athena, King Telemachos of Methone was rumored to have an affair with the beautiful Selena wife of his childhood friend, Isocrates.

     3. In the Elements realm of Relic, Paluu The Vivisector was a pale and scarred Valon who had taken a barbarian name meaning ‘Most Feared’. Paluu’s purview was the sale of illegal drugs and black alchemical concoctions.

     4. We have a long heritage of putting hidden secrets into Suzerain. For example? Well, check out our American Grit Easter Eggs page!

There's a set of three short stories by Eric Kahn on the Suzerain Wiki, set in the Timeline realm of American Grit. You can find the first one by clicking here.

     5. In the Elements realm of Untamed Empires, the Empire Of The Dawn was ruled by the family line of Domire. As a result, their subjects were commonly known as 'Domirians'.
