Contents of upcoming Magic World Supplements (what has been revealed)
I want to make a summary of what we know about the upcoming stuff. Please, correct and improve. I will integrate the info by editing the first post.
Of course, Ben, feel free to reveal us all kinds of exciting news!
1- ADVANCED SORCERY (officially announced) contains: summoning rules and demon powers, demon breeds (from Elric! and Bronze Grimoire), rune magic (BG), necromancy (BG), herbalism (Melniboné), special focus skills (Gods of Law), High Magic (unknown East). That's quite a lot of stuff.
[GM PACK. I guess the screen contains the usual tables etc. I hope it will have cool art (Ben: "I predict you’ll love the external art"). Ben also said it contains a booklet with the RQ Gamemaster Book (RQ3) and a very substantial NPC digest (from all Elric! books). I think this has been divided into two separate products.]
2-MW BESTIARY. I guess it contains monsters. Taken from what sources? Elric books? The old "Gateway Bestiary" for RQ2? Brand new ones?
3-CHRONICLER'S COMPANION. I' think this is the same thing as the GM booklet originally to be part of the GM pack. So, it's RQ Gamemaster Book (RQ3) + NPC digest (from all Elric! books). Plus, Ben said it contains a section on using Allegiance to create cults for MW.
4-CHRONICLER'S SHIELD- The other part of the GM pack.
5-UNTITLED SETTING AND SCENARIO BOOK. Part setting, part scenarios, tied in to the Southern Reaches. It takes a sandbox approach reminescent of Griffin Island. It does not say anything about the world beyond the Reaches, which is lefts to the imagination of GMs.
