Feats are mostly done with all the racial traits and lifepath options done. After this comes Paragon paths. I am still unsure how to deal with Epic Destinies. They may appear slightly unusual since the divine element notorious in the Player's Handbook entries will be missing.
We are gearing the first book to be slightly less intimidating than the last one, at under 300 compared to the 400 from the first book. Yes, this means, those who had purchased the 3.5 version will have a greater eye over the entire setting but now we are looking towards to the long term plans of the franchise.
Meanwhile, monsters are being written up as well. Keeping the theme from 4.0 MM, we will present several different encounter levels of the same monster type. Expect nearly three times as many actual monsters in this book than the 3.5 version.
Playtesting will begin shortly. We will be sending out email to those that have expressed interest. If you haven't sent a mail and are interested, email us now.
There will be dozens of different lifepaths and I wanted to reveal one today but I was torn on which one. I especially love the Custodian but I want to keep that bottled up for now, so I figured I would share the Librarian, which is a Limshau path that is not combat based.
