I'm actually rather looking forward to it. :)

Me too!

However, I'll say my interest is more on the steppe than China or Japan.

I'll admit it is a relatively new interest for me compared to my long love and interest in ancient/medieval/early modern Europe. However, the more I look the more I see that the dominos that crashed down in Europe started the fall in the Steppes. However, without those exact same steppes you wouldn't have the long road connecting Greece/Rome and her offspring to China in her different iterations. No silk and spice into Europe no Roman glass wool and wine from grape and berries back to the east end of the road.

So yes I look forward to all books, but the most interest for me is the one that covers that long dust dangerous exotic road and the peoples who inhabit it hunt it and travel it

Oh yeah goes without saying I can't wait for the China book if only for the rules on martial arts !!!!!

I have the shaolin warrior done, needs some roll testing and a bit more history. I decided to make this the shaolin trained "monk" who travels for temples or who has left the temple... the shaolin warrior monks.. come in two varieties Buddhist or Taoist.. they would be multi class or class and a half with cleric or wizard/illusionist respectively... rarely triple class but some exist. So the warrior should be seen as a variant to the PH monk. I'm trying not too add too much Chinese history, but enough to help explain. For sure, he's a martial artist.
Wow, Another Natural One! You guys are a sink hole for luck. Stay away from my dice.
