I thought I'd jump in and let everyone know, that as of about an hour ago Christen added the Eclipse playtest to the backer goodies, so as of right now, anyone one who backed at the Co7S .pdf level or higher should have access to all three new akashic classes (Eclipse, Nexus, and Radiant), as well as scores of new veils! If you missed out on the Kickstarter, you can still gain access to these goodies by preordering through Backerkit!
The Eclipse iconic's art is just outstanding. If I get a brain injury prior to this book coming out and no longer understand my native language, I can still look at what I am confident will be the best art in an RPG book the world has ever seen...or I have ever seen. Bar none.

Right? I was absolutely blown away when I first saw the iconic art for the eclipse, absolutely brutal and amazing.

Where can this eclipse iconic be viewed?

On the most recent Kickstarter update post. Race looks like the kyton-spawn, unless there's a lot of chain veils I missed.

The eclipse iconic art can be previewed here, though I'm uncertain whether or not you need to be a backer to see it.

Little bit of A, little bit of B. The race is the judow (kyton-spawn), but it's also using Ebon Stars and Shackles of Perdition.

Just thought I'd pop in and mention that if anyone is planning on attending PaizoCon this year, keep an eye out when the lottery goes up if you're interested in doing some gaming in the City of Seven Seraphs with Co7S races and classes. I'll be running two 4-5 sessions, one Friday night and one Sunday night, taking a group of 4-6 Co7S pregens through an extraplanar adventure. The pregens will include the iconics for all three Co7S akashic classes, the new akashic Zodiac class that will be releasing separately from Co7S, and two additional characters that haven't been fully decided on but which will also be drawn from Co7S; currently I'm thinking an aethernaut and one of the "classic" akashic classes using the new options presented in Co7S.

Lindley, fwiw...I've seen some of Michael's new akashic designs. They are GLORIOUS.

I'm actually really excited for the Zodiac to finish going through the internal playtest and editing phase so I can talk about it a bit more. In addition to it having some glorious art from Brian Syme for not one but two iconics, I tried a lot of new stuff that I'm hoping people will think is really cool. While the Eclipse, Nexus, and Radiant were a kind of revisiting and refinement of the akashic system in an awesome new conceptual space, I took the Zodiac into some pretty new and exciting territory, and got to bring in a bunch of new veils and akashic feats to continue expanding support and options for the system. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing players getting a chance to try it out at PaizoCon!

@Michael: Awesome! I wrote a very small section of CO7S, and the anticipation to see it all put together is incredibly exciting.

Just in case anyone is interested, City of 7 Seraphs: Akashic Trinity is available for purchase!

If you're a backer of City of 7 Seraphs at a level where you would receive a copy of the final book, check your e-mail because you may already have a link for a copy of this release as part of your Kickstarter rewards.

Is it possible to order a hardcover of this somewhere?

The PDF is excellent but this is something that absolutely needs to be on my shelf.

It's currently available directly from Lost Sphere's website.

I'll ping Christen and see if he has any additional information.

A gorgeous book with glossy paper and fantastic artwork throughout. It will take a while to digest all of the nooks and crannies contained therein.

Thanks much. $48 USD in shipping, but:

a} I'm getting used to that insanity and
b} the darned thing's worth it.

I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to introduce the setting into my game reality, but have been chewing on it for a bit.

WOah on the shipping. I got it for 16$ shipping, in Croatia, where I'm used to having 48$ and up amount if it's not Amazon.

And I'm also having problem in incorporating into my CS (which a version of Kobold Press' Midgard), and I think I'll just not include it. Themes are excellent but just don't mesh with my CS. I'll just run it as a separate thing.

On that last note, when are the adventures in Hyraeatan coming :D?

I'm in Canada. Looks like it's shipping from Utah, USA. But it needs to visit the moon first. <Grin>

I quite like the idea of a meta-prime planar hub. It could be intriguing to - for instance - drag some characters into the Eberron campaign setting for an adventure or two.

My problem is that it feels like something that should come up as a campaign capstone. As in, at the end of a campaign. And I currently know how I want to end the next player campaign... and it needs to be on Golarion. So I just don't currently know how to introduce Co7S a level or two before the ultimate plot unveils itself.

Currently, post-Shattered Star, my plots are:
1} Kaiju attack on Magnimar.
2} Stopping Cheliax from bringing Ravounel back into its control.
3} Addressing Nocticula's replacement as demon lord. << Endgame.

Just don't know if I'm creative enough to wedge a planar jaunt into the middle of that lore-laden schedule.

Would definitely buy. Setting-appropriate adventure material sure would help.


It's pretty easy to link your campaign into the City of Seven Seraphs. You just have your PCs fall into a planar hole and then they plop out somewhere in the city. That's the nice thing about using this as a capstone. You can easily work your way into it from any plane and then the PCs have to work to find their way back home.

Thanks much. $48 USD in shipping, but

Update...

Ordered Monday, 5:30pm.
Arrived Thursday 9:00am.
In Canada.
With duty and taxes pre-paid.

So... Christen packaged, labelled, and got this thing shipped <expletive deleted> quick, and ensured up-front that there were no hidden costs which are a complete gamble with US to Canada shipments. Single books are - admittedly - fairly rare to incur the duty charges... if they're shipped solely USPS >> Canada Post, but that typically takes five to six business days. This was effectively two-day international shipping, which virtually always incurs brokerage fees on top of government taxes and duty. I just paid a $100+ Fedex bill for something that was shipped from the US and cost something like $50 US.

Bottom line, I retract any implication that something was amiss with the math. This was completely in-line with pre-paid duty & taxes rapid shipments I've had in the past. I just didn't know that was what was happening.

Oh. And... gorgeous book. Guys, write more words. I need them.

They're totally on the way! In the meantime, reviews on product pages and positive word-of-mouth that help boost sales during low-sales periods like an edition change are invaluable for creating cashflow (which helps keep production moving by allowing Christen to hire artists and editors instead of doing it himself). Nudge-nudge-wink-wink-but-I'm-totally-serious

I will try. I confess that I'm daunted by the sheer scale of Co7S. I've been slowly reading through the (massive) lore chapters, and dipped in some of the chunchy chapters and... damn, there's just so much. But yeah. Get off my butt. Gotcha.

So. Fair is fair. I'm less-than brilliant.

See, I thought that I had ordered a copy (outside of the Kickstarter) shortly after that became possible. But I couldn't find any sign than I had done so, and some Google-fu failures didn't give me the ordering page I'd thought I'd previously used.

So I asked here. And ordered.

Then this mysterious delivery was attempted to my work address which caused no end of confusion because I wasn't expecting anything. Co7S shows up and I conclude "aah, this is the book I ordered a couple days ago, to go to my home".

Guess what I found in my home mailbox today? Right.

So anyway, take the free bump. And the endorsement that of all the gorgeous books I could have two of, this one I absolutely don't regret.
