Codex question

Post by Julian Grimm »

Is the new codex a reprint of the d20 version or does it contain new material?

It contains new material. How much I can't say exactly, but my guess would be about 10-20% more. For instance, there is an interesting deity in there named The Cobbler, he reminds me of a certain famous RPG person...

I'd say closer to 35-40% new-ish material.

Possibly more, and the presentation is MUCH better!
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

How about information on Outremere/New Aenoch and how life was like during the Winter Dark? That was two things I felt the original needed more on.
