A whole bunch!

We've statted out a new Third Circle demon; that should be fun.

Oh, small question on HDNP, will it be organised by section? Ie an Elementals section, ghost section, demons section, animals section, wacky monsters, etc.

I ended up sorting my pdfs into sub-folders because I'd always go looking for, say, an animal for Lunars or a demon to summon, and then have to sort through them all (not remembering what the names of all of them are).
That's the plan as I understand it.

How long are Hundred Devils Night Parade and Adversaries of the Righteous expected to be? (Just approximately, I'm not asking for exact page numbers)
Like, Arms of the Chosen kinda size, or shorter?
IIRC, each of them should be about the size of Arms of the Chosen; maybe a couple pages longer. (But I don't have the actual planned word counts on hand, so please take this with a grain of salt.)

Is it possible for storm gods in other parts of the world to just have different physical and emotional characteristics to storm mothers?

After all, it's not as if storms are the same all over the world; I kind of always assumed the Western storm mothers were a reflection of the kinds of storms one gets in equivalent climates in reality. Gods like storm mothers in the Inland Sea feels odd to me when I kind of expect the Inland Sea to be much more placid even without the intervention of wizards and Immaculates.
Well, we haven't actually written anything on the subject, so it's up in the air. Certainly you should handle things at your table as you think best for your game.

Soulsteel is indeed steel made with tormented souls. As with demon summoning, using it or not is intended to be a meaningful, thematic decision for your character. If you allow the creation of soulsteel by other means in your game, I recommend that such alternate methods involve some equivalent sort of irrevocable harm.

Speaking of storm mothers, do the Inland, White, and/or Dreaming Seas have them or only the Great Western Ocean?

Eric will know better than me, but I don't think they're limited to just the one ocean.
My current thoughts are that storm mothers can be found elsewhere, but those in the Inland Sea and the western Dreaming Sea keep their heads down to avoid Immaculate attention. We may have another look at this if it comes up in a future book.

Mela’s Coil in Arms also seems like a good analogue for Air Dragon Armor too.

Is there any cool artifact armor in Heirs?
The Lookshy chapter will have info on gunzosha armor, and a Kickstarter backer requested a suit of articulated plate for the artifact chapter.

It's unlikely; as you note, there's not much of a place for it in upcoming books.

Or would it basically just be equivalent to artifact armor with whatever evocations we might want and not really worth making a separate thing?
Pretty much! The magitech-themed Evocations on Cathedral of Sublime Annihilation (in Arms of the Chosen) should serve as a good guideline of what that would look like; it's really just a matter of flavoring what are otherwise normal Evocations in a dragon armor-ish way.

There's nothing in the spell description that says the elemental's Essence needs to remain 3 or below, so as written it should remain bound. The Storyteller may wish to rule otherwise, but if so, should discuss it with the player before the elemental is summoned rather than afterward.

I'll make a note of this to discuss with the Hundred Devils developer, and to consider more broadly if we get to write our planned book on sorcery.

Is there a scheduled date for the beginning of the Exigent Kickstarter, or does it depend on what projects are ready at a given time?
There is no officially scheduled date as yet; specifics are up to the folks running things at Onyx Path.

Can we correctly interpret this response to mean that both books have already been pitched so it's just a question of response order?
Yes, that's correct.

With regards to Amatha Kinslayer’s Exalted Dragonblood daughter, is she a member of House Peleps (not matrilineal) or House Cynis (matrilineal)?
Cynis. Amatha was a mortal Dynast, but a Dynast nonetheless; her husband joined her household, and their child took her family name.

Apologies; I was distracted and forgot this was “Ask the Devs” and not “Ask a question, get an answer.”

And now, a dev question: Which should we expect to see first, a sorcery book, or a manses/demesnes book?
That largely depends on the order in which we receive book pitch approvals from Onyx Path.

We have no plans for retconning the map. It's a fair point that folks shelled out a lot of money on the canvas map of Creation as a free-standing purchase, and that shouldn't be casually disregarded.

(Note: Sometimes the devs will make mistakes here; we're only human, and we largely squeeze in this unpaid service in between two jobs and trying to have a life. Please don't respond with hostility or shaming.)
