Re: First Designer Diary and More!

Hi,

Since it been more than three months since the last time we got aby Fading Suns news, would it be possible to get an update on the current development status of the game?

Best wishes

The Stigmata garrison

While the Symbiot conflict in Stigmata is a core concept in Fading Suns I have always suspected the info we get on the garrison numbers and composition in LotE is not compatible the few scattered references found among the other sourcebooks. We are told that there are but seven legions deployed to S...

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

I agree with you that having too many nobles would not be compatible with the setting as described. On the other hand it would also be difficult to believe that a much higher ratio than one knight for every thousand peasants and freemen could exist. How could they control them given the prevalent lo...

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

Well, it would be high if one thinks in terms of a higher tech world like Criticorum, Ligaheim or Byzantium Secundus. The average known world has an average Tech Level of 3 or approximately victorian. Most knights would reside in the countryside and due to the difficulties in communication and troop...

Re: Towns Crier's - Guild Novemeber 2017

The scarce information we have doesn't preclude the existence of a heir, in fact my favorite theory is that Alexius has one or several being raised up in secret to avoid interference from the myriad of factions.

Re: Addressing Noble House Populations

I remember having calculated at some point that a reasonable ratio of nobles vs others would be of about 1 to 1000. Thus the average planet with a population of 500 million would house about half a million nobles, 99 % of which would be knights (non-hereditary) and baronets.

Re: Salutations, gentle sentients

This is amazing! I wonder if the whole WitH series will be revamped and hopefully extended. Certainly I would not mind getting more fluff on the Symbiots and the Vau.

Some thoughts on the setting

Hi there, There is still not much activity going around so I thought I would throw out some of my thoughts on the upcoming FS edition. The FS setting has always been “paired” with the real-life date (FS 1st ed -1996, in-setting date 4996 and so on). I wonder if the time-line will be advanced accordi...

[The Kurgan] Greetings from Old Europe

Hi everyone, I 've been an avid Fading Suns junkie since its translation and publication in my country about 18 years ago (so long already?). I've got most of the published material both from Holistic Design and later Redbrick and FASA. Although never a prolific contributor to the older yahoo mailin...
