Very unlikely, as it's not currently assigned to the writing team, but it's not impossible for it to see some coverage if we free up sufficient word count during development.

That sounds exciting, so by guidelines do you mean examples of different shaping rituals and other benefits?
Some sorcery, but mostly non-sorcerous magic.

Random tables, you say? As in "assorted tables" or "tables for randomly generating things"?
The latter.

If you wanted to do something similar at the table, an Ambition 3 Terrestial working seems like a good fit.

Thank you!

Which places are you most excited to write about?
Well, we're not doing much of the actual writing. But we have brand-new locales lined up in just about every Direction, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the writing team makes of them!

And is it purely fluff, or does it have some mechanics? (Like how the Compass books used to have write-ups of monsters and antagonists at the back)
It's almost all setting material, but there will be a few Quick Character write-ups, mechanical guidelines for some local magics, and maybe a few random tables.

The Five Magical Materials are more broadly efficacious for artifice and generally easier for a variety of beings to attune to than other magical materials, but they don't belong to a special metaphysical category.

We don't currently have specific plans to cover Paragon and its immediate environs in Across the Eight Directions.

I envision things like stony caves, primeval forests, and mountaintop aeries - places that would fit as lairs for legendary monsters - but I'm not sure how I'd differentiate them from Earth, Wood, or Air Demesnes, respectively.
As per Vance, previous editions' depictions should be a good guideline for the moment. We hope to cover demesnes and manses in more detail in an upcoming supplement.

Given their optional nature, will there be any story hooks for the Non-canon Exalts presented in future supplements?
Yes, though the presentation will always be deliberately vague so that the Storyteller can attribute those hooks to other sources if she isn't using those optional-canon Exalts in her game.

You'd have to ask the previous developers.

That's the plan; we're working on a prototype now.

Yes. 10char

Yes, it includes a handful of Terrestrial and Celestial Circle spells, along with a few new sorcerous initiations.

Thx, yeah I figured if it wasn't in Exigent it would probably be in Sid. Wondering, how much detail do you think you guys will go into Gods in Exigent? While most of the book does seem like it will mostly homebrew advice, will there at least be more of an expansion on them from what we can get from the Core?
Information on gods in the Exigents book will be aimed primarily at designing patron gods who'll provide useful personality and design hooks for Exigent characters.

If I remember correctly, you said that Exigents would include 4 example/sample Exigent types, one of which would be Architects (like the one in the Core)? Do I remember correctly?
That's correct.

Can you give us any hints as to the other 3?

Also, will the 3 non-canon Exalt types use any rules from the rest of the book, or have entirely their own stuff?
Every type of Exigent has "their own stuff," so I'm not sure I can provide a meaningful answer.
