It will be interesting to see what's in the book. I really like the take on superstitious fear and the inquisition in The Armored Saint (which I also strongly recommend for any Warhammer fans).
On a related tangent, I'm most interested to see if there will be a version of Joan of Arc.
My personal view was getting that side right more than the tech, weirdly. In a way, it's an alien way of thinking for most people in today's world... not as alien as the Living Land, but it's the second-lowest Social axiom (and has a world law that pegs it even lower) … and certain concepts don't connect there the way they do in Core Earth. It's one thing to talk about neon billboards and AR feeds, quite another to talk about … hrm. Let's just say "Topics" and not scratch the paint on that NDA.
But I wanted to get into the heads of the people of Magna Verita, see how they acted and what they thought. Where history differed and what effects that had. At least with the Edeinos, you're dealing with non humans, but in the Cyberpacy, you have thought processes that are just DIFFERENT, you know? And once you know how they view X or Y, you can see why they act certain ways or do certain things.
If they ever want me to do a deep dive on Magna Verita, I'm gonna write a dang thesis.
As for Joan of Arc? I rather liked her rap battle against Miley Cyrus. (NSFW due to lyrics.)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQx1sqPHTrk
