I know the fangs at the gate KS Campaign started only 14 days ago, but I'm looking real hard at tryining to squeeze my twilights image into one of the next, wha? 5? Kickstarter book campaigns? Just wondering how long we would be looking at till the next funding session to know how to budget
We can't give any kind of solid schedule for future Kickstarters, but our intention is to have each one about a year after the last one.

EDIT: Ignore my previous note down here; all the art pieces are indeed gone, though it's possible one may open up again if a backer switches to a different reward tier later.

The new fiction references Cannons in reference to a naval battle. Are these Stream Cannons, the Harbor Cannons referenced in 1E, or a more piratey ship to ship cannon?
Shore cannons, as per 1e and Arms of the Chosen.

Does Exigents fall in there? I thought it would be before the gazetteer.
We haven't started work on Exigents yet. So barring unforeseen circumstances, it will come after all of the aforementioned books, all of which are already at some stage or other of development.

We're thinking softbacks, although this is subject to change.

Can i ask how long the expected time table is for this? That is the time between each product.
No idea. The specifics are above our pay grade, and OPP has had problems in the past when a publicly provided timetable slips due to unforeseen circumstances.

To change the subject from Lunars for a moment, I know the schedule of splat books, but is there a schedule more generally?

Dragonblood: What Fire Has Wrought I assume is next.

And I assume after that it's the Realm? Or Heirs to the Shogunate? One, then the other?

And then... Across the Eight Directions? Or is that scheduled after Lunars?

Or are splatbooks and non-splatbooks on completely different schedules? So that all you can say is Across the Eight Directions is scheduled after the Realm, but it has no relation to Lunars?
Barring unforeseen circumstances, I expect actual publication order (based on the order we're developing them in) to be Dragon-Blooded, The Realm, Lunars, Heirs to the Shogunate, Across the Eight Directions.

Pardon, is that a FLAT no period, or a No in regards to the Debt Face Charm, thus Dragon Kings are viable targets through a standard Sacred Hunt, or perhaps like in 2e where you needed a special Knack to perform a Sacred Hunt on a Demon?
It's a flat no.

We sent the chapter fiction along to Onyx Path; it's up to them to determine when and how it's going to be previewed.

It's being divvied up into lots of smaller chunks this time around.

Did Raksi and Ma-Ha-Suchi exalt before the Usurpation? It's not clear if that's still the case.
They're both explicitly presented as First Age elders in their individual write-ups.

A question about this. When it comes to the assumption of 'always Anathema', would it be reasonable to assume that they just very clearly notate the signs of Solars and Lunars and their caste marks then...I guess just go 'any other Exalted may not be as blessed as the Dragon-Blooded, but like gods have a part to play in our world'?

Just trying to guess kind of how if a young peasant child went up to an Immaculate monk after seeing anything from a Chosen of Battle to an Exigent in service of a local river god asking questions would be answered.
The world is full of supernatural entities whose presence and activities aren't sanctioned by the Immaculate Philosophy, but which aren't necessarily so troublesome to the Perfected Hierarchy as to warrant extermination. An Exigent or other unidentified Exalt should be reported to a monk, but only those who bear the signs of Lunar or Solar Exaltation are innately considered to be,Anathema.

Basically, by default Exigents (like god-blooded) and other non-Dragon-Blooded Exalted are seen by the Immaculates as the result of inappropriate congress between gods and mortals, but can atone for their inauspicious creation through noble service. But they have no innate role in the well-being of creation; they can easily go astray, and those whose evil deeds draw sufficient condemnation may be dubbed Anathema on an individual basis.

Will The Realm have a timeline?
Yes, along the lines of the ones found in First Edition books like Exalted: the Dragon-Blooded and Scavenger Sons.

Does it talk much about the Shogunate?
Occasionally mentioned in passing where relevant, but it receives no dedicated coverage.

How about Immaculate theology (as opposed to praxis)?
Discussed in the Immaculate Order chapter.

How much of the book is about Satrapies?
There's a full chapter on satrapies, including both general discussion of the satrapial system and individual write-ups of several satrapies.

Finally, is the Immaculate version of history in Chapter 1 of 1st edition Exalted still representative of what Realm commoners believe?
Page 32, "The Realm Historian Speaks," largely carries over in its broad strokes, though it's worth noting that it's explicitly presented as a systematized compilation from various sources rather than a universal historical orthodoxy. (One noteworthy change is that Sidereals are no longer considered Anathema by default in 3e.)

On the first question, I wasn't so much asking about mechanics as story, but the point is taken that there are many types of Akuma that might have different abilities both in their base form, and what they were granted. However, I was trying to ask if say a Terrestrial Exalted Akuma focused on combat would be a threat to a combat-focused solar as a matter of story?
As Vance says, in 3e "Akuma" isn't a mechanical template that you paste onto an Exalt. It's an umbrella term for someone who's been granted infernal power. The term "Terrestrial Exalted Akuma," by itself, provides no meaningful information on the particulars of the infernal powers that a Dragon-Blood may have received. So the answer is that whether any given akuma is a challenge to your PCs is up to whatever traits your Storyteller decided to assign to that akuma.

(This seems like something we might want to provide guidance for in a future book. But it's not something that we have the wherewithal to address at this time.)

Just pinging this one from a couple weeks ago, in case it got missed. If it's something without an easy Dev Thread answer, no worries.
We're aiming to cover these things in an upcoming book about spirits, if possible.

I take it, then, that a hypothetical future write-up of Gervesin would probably have his "petrifies crops and flowers he passes over, and spreads fibers of brass through day birds' flesh" omen, be given such an exception clause? I figure brassy tumors are a touch more deleterious than uncontrollable crying.
Some demonic omens are more dramatic in their impact than others, but by and large, they aren't meant to unexpectedly murder your PC's familiar.
