So how is it coming? Think it will be done by the end of the year, or near after the start of the next? I've got a player who is very finnicky with his definition of "magic", and he always wants spells that give him a lot of options for each specific spell (basically he wants one spell to be able to act as ten spells), and I'm trying to convince him that Fantasy Craft has enough magic to keep him interested.

We're making really good progress, and I should be able to report at least some details soon-ish. Not immediately, but soon... ish. Definitely well before the end of the year. Wink

Good to hear Pat.  I hate to say, but I'm really chomping at the bit over here for spellbound.

Believe me, I've worn down my bit here as well. Hopefully we'll get you something to gnaw on sooner than later.

I've been meaning to ask this question but always forget when I am actually at a computer: Will there be a spell chain for summoning constructs/robots in Spellbound?

I enjoy four things: Giant Robots, Giant Monsters, Zombies, and Steampunk. But, just because something contains one or a combination of those doesn't mean I will like it.

There was an Artifice spell chain in Seer called Construct Assembly that did just that, so it's safe to say there will be. You can easily use it yourself as it's really just another Nature's Ally/Call From Beyond/Conjure Elemental clone, there isn't a whole lot to those spells except the pregen'd creatures.

I just realize a really cool theme for a summon line would be "Now There Be Dragon". Grin

Very true! I had actually thought about that, but at the same time its nice to have it in the book for the 'officialness' and all that.

So is it mostly just the big list of spells that you're working on now? As far as content at least, layout and such would need to wait of course.

Yes, it is. The other trappings (20 classes, god knows how many feats, how to hack the system all to pieces) was the easy part Smiley Pat's got nearly everything in place, but being a Busy Company Owner with Many Things to Do sometimes get in the way of diving into a deep development hole to knock it all out.

"I find your lack of faith disturbing."

As someone who has been a Crafty fan since before they were Crafty (aka since 1999), I say you need to trust that they do not put out inferior product with lots of revisions like another company that just cranks stuff out. Crafty puts out very high quality material and is well worth the wait.

Does 7th Sea and L5R predate 1999?  I think a couple of my books might, which may make several of us here fans of the Crafty guys since before Spycraft was even a thing.
