Re: Saurids on Earth

Re: Product Line Status?

I've got a state of the line post going up on the blog at the end of the year. To summarize: 1879 development is moving along, but we're stalled in production. The Companions have been in lockdown since early spring, waiting for layout. Our primary layout person for 1879 developed medical issues and...

Re: Saurids on Earth

Canonically, the Saurids have not yet crossed over to Earth. There are questions as to whether the Rabbit Hole will allow them to, or if, like the Hat, they are forbidden from entry. There's also the diplomatic considerations, and the spiritual ones. There has not been a Saurid on Earth in living me...

Re: Languages

No, they're not. Samsut is based loosely on Akkadian, with enough Babylonian and Hittite and other Semitic and Afro-Asiatic bits and pieces to make it confusing. Think of it as Yiddish, having started with more or less a Germanic base, but having added so much from Hebrew and all the lands the Ashke...

Re: Craftsman, Magical Tools

Chris is right with it being a catch-all. This is very much determined by the Lodge of the magician. A Theosophist would carry an attuned crystal, a couple of religious symbols from various faiths, and a notebook. A Galvanic Mage would have a meter for reading mana field strength. Wands count as mag...
