But I'm not sure one can say "flowers from Southern Shysh" -  or that would refer to a concentric area around the core of the Realm, or the central area of the Realm itself. Which now is occupied by the Shysh Nadir...

That's a really good point. Maybe South (as in going down) for Shyish could be in reference to the underworlds like Hallost but now with the Nadir acting as a magic black hole all south roads point towards the waiting arms of Nagash.

Edit: You know what, nevermind. if north is to the strongest magic then that would be Nadir making the center north.

I think that would work out well with those flowers growing along the edges where death-making shyish realmstone deserts and wastes are and much like "True-life" flips life and death on it's head (with undeath treated as ascendance) so too flipping directions compared to other realms works.

(Thanks for the compass link too, btw. That's a fantastic lore nugget that needs more exposure :) )

The new book is looking fabulous - well done Cubicle 7! I wonder if those minor typos will be fixed in the print version? As much as I would love to have a physical book right now, one of the advantages of releasing first in a PDF first is the opportunity to have a large number of eyes to spot issues before it is printed.

It should be l fixed. They've been taking errata from readers, and should be releasing an updated pdf sometime this week or next.

Same! We played our first game on Sunday, and it went quite well I think. Most of us had really limited RPG experience or no experience of RPG and even AoS. 

I think they've done a great job and I'm looking forward to get my hands on more :)

Looks like a great slate of upcoming releases. I'm glad that there looks to be a good mix of adventures and sourcebooks, I'll particularly look forward to the Bestiary, and if they are kicking things off with an Order themed splat book then hopefully that means that ones for the other four alliances won't be too far behind. Personally I'm not a fan of published adventure modules, so am only likely to get those if they come with gazetteers of the places involved, or solid background stuff. They should do well though, since big adventure path type campaigns are very much in fashion at the moment. All in all this looks like its shaping up to be a great game. I can't wait to get the book in my hands and read up on everything! (I've preordered, so could dive into the pdf, but I spend so much work time staring at text on computer screens that I'd much rather have a physical page for leisure reading, particularly for huge rpg books..."

Huzzah, that's fantastic news! The monthly updates have me really back-flipping God-king be praised.  :D

Also yay on Crash and Burn,  I remember when they first talked about the idea of commandeering a Kharadron airship back in 2017 at Warhammer World when the rpg was announced.

To the  aetheric skies, lads! Fame and fortune await!

On "Horrors of the Realms" though I hope they consult Josh Reynolds on a few things. He had nifty ideas.

"There are all sorts of non-Chaos horrors in the Mortal Realms. Here are possibly a few:

In Ghyran, it's possibly the Gardynals - predatory plants that resemble caves, houses, or even citadels, and devour those who seek shelter within them. They travel with the monsoons, and nestle in areas near the largest concentrations of prey, allowing as many as possible to enter before snapping shut their jaws and prowling away.

In Hysh, it could be the Sun Dogs, which stalk and devour the shadows of the unwary. The effects of this are unpleasant, for nature abhors a vacuum and if one's shadow is missing, something may grow to replace it.

In Ulgu, there are similar beasts, called Shirkers, which eat the light from their victims's eyes, and blind them. Their howls lead their prey deeper into the umbral maze of the Realm of Shadows, before the packs descend to nip at their victim's sight, until they are lost, alone and blind, in the shadow-lands.

In Aqshy, it might be the Fire Clown - a jovial, unsettling wanderer who fills the unlucky with heated emotions of all sorts, leading to unfortunate, inevitable consequences, or else makes them spontaneously combust with mirth.

In Ghur, there's the Hungry Wind, a maelstrom of cannibal spirits that strips the flesh from those caught outdoors when it blows through. These spirits are not of Shyish, or of Chaos...some whisper that they might be the manifestation of Ghur itself.

In Chamon are the shattered, maddened remains of Cypria's clockwork legions, many of which have degenerated into a feral state, seeking any jot of metal, wood or even bone to repair their faltering frames. They gather in the wild places, building and growing.

In Shyish, there are the Forgotten, the ancient Ur-Deaths which ruled in the ages before Nagash, and before even the paltry godlings he overthrew. They stir now, in the depths of Stygxx, scenting the death of gods on the charnel wind.

And in Azyr, there are the ravenous things which stalk the star-fields around Sigmaron. Shapeless, nameless and ever-hungry, they are kept in check only by Sigmar's lightning, and the efforts of his huntsmen."

All those guides on the Aqshian Cities Of Sigmar are EXACTLY what I wanted !!! I will surely get the Starter Set, Cities Of Flames and the Anvilgard one ! 

I hope we'll get cities maps like in Warhammer Quest : Shadows Over Hammerhal 😍😍😍

Yes, great news. I GMed my first adventure last Friday and it was a blast. Easy to get into, but lot of options and freedom to keep it interesting. We have played other Cubicle7 products before (TOR and WFRP), and so far they always managed to convey the essence of the setting. In Soulbound you really feel like semi-superheroes smashing through stuff in a fantastic setting. 

I'm so happy to see that we really get the Lumineth relatively fast as "promised" and a Magic supplement on top, as well as all kind of great stuff (monsters, ships ...) 

Looking forward to the campaign. From the sound of it, it's similar to the "Enemy Within" campaign in WFRP which also combines a city setting with adventures and addition general information (starter set is the same of course, which they also did with the one in WFRP). That concept is good, because you can use the book even if you don't plan on running the campaign as such. Anvilguard should give you good ideas for all kind of Dark Elf and Ulgu related things for example.

This is one of the most pleasant surprises from the soulbound core book, the sheer amount of Kharadron stuff. All the gear and associated game mechanics, it's cool. More than other aspects, I could see an all-Kharadron campaign being effective and a lot of fun.

I really love the kharadron guilds they flesh it out with. That alone has so many possibilities for intrigue, side-questing, relic-hunting backstabs and players going pure pirate between them and aelven Corsairs working together.

Also this is new today on the herald:

Gryph-hound couriers running through city streets would be great to center some adventure hi-jinx on like having the party chase one down that accidentally delivered the wrong product or got caught on an important item mid-delivery your group just brought back.

Could also combine it with the earlier airship botte post and have a quick ship delivered to your party when they get stuck.

(The downside being whatever treasure your aether hopping venture gains you the Kharadron guild will acquire all of it and still put you in debt causing more quests across the realms to pay it off. xD )

Well that's lovely, in a very short time Soulbound has not only become their hottest seller but earned the Platinum Best Seller award on Drivethrurpg with a plethora of 5/5 star reviews.

https://www.drivethrurpg.com/m/product/303936

Outstanding work, Cubicle7. The long wait was 100% worth it. :)

You're right. Not even one 1/5 from haters. I hope it stays this way. Standing ovations, Cubicle7. Job well done.

Indeed, I was pleasantly surprised by that too. Especially when I remember when the great AoS board game "Rise and Fall of Anvalor" got one lone 1/10 rating on Boardgamegeeks....3 months before it even released. xD

Also neat, Cubicle7 are doing a humble bundle for Deathwatch novels:

https://www.humblebundle.com/books/warhammer-40k-deathwatch-cubicle-7-books?hmb_source=navbar&hmb_medium=product_tile&hmb_campaign=tile_index_5

I'd love that for AoS with the books centered around the realm of fire. Would fit the main map and be great for ads like "These Aqshy bundles are on fire! Take a journey into the Mortal Realms today!".

Guys! Do we know if Roll20 is going to have Character sheet integrated for Soulbound? Since they are available freely for download I would have assumed there wasn't any copyrights issues and it would help massively with campaigns...

It will be great if they do this. Its usually only a matter of time before Roll20 character sheets are developed once a game launches, but its always most efficient in cases where the game's producers work with the platform to get it sorted out.

Emmet mentioned that C7 is negotiating with Roll20 for official support, first for WFRP though. I don’t think there would be a problem though if someone made a file, there are different versions for both C7’s TOR and WFRP.

Do you know if we need a Premium account to do that?

I don’t know, sorry. They haven’t finished negotiations yet as far as I know. And the first thing will be WFRP. But Soulbound seems to be really popular I’m sure we’ll see something from the fan side at least.
