    Heh, so, I did a thing I'd been wanting to do for a while: I gave every class in the game a branching promotion! When characters promote, they can now pick from one of two prestige classes that extend the character's stats and/or abilities in different ways to give them a differentiated role on the battlefield.

    With 24 base classes and every prestige class a unique (i.e. no two base classes share any one prestige class as a promotion option), this now brings the game to 72 character classes.

    You mean for the whole new game, not for Telepath Tactics "Director's Cut"? :P

    The plan is for the new game in late 2020, and Telepath Tactics in 2021. (I plan to release a short demo of the TT special edition to KS backers pretty soon, though!)

    I've posted this year's end-of-year round up on Kickstarter! Destructible defensive terrain; UI improvements galore; new status effects, weapon properties, and character classes; and the campaign creation suite now has all of its various editors! Clicky to read.

    If you're someone who gave up on trying to mod the original Telepath Tactics, I especially want your thoughts on the new campaign editor! (Not you specifically, mindx2, but anyone.) How easy do you find it to make a campaign with the new tools? What sort of things would you like to see to make it all more accessible? Etc.

    Incline with visuals, and it's mostly down to Codex' entirely justified criticism. Now if we could successfully convince him to hire a competent writer (preferably someone who can present a sample of their writing) our noble task would be completed.

    Or more likely get Master Dorateen to post Hearkenwold to this engine as well.

    You could bring the female touch to the mostly female cast.
