You want to know about NeoExodus? Look here...

I got this over at the forum at EN World and I wanted to share it with you...

I'm a little confused as to what NeoExodus is all about. As far as I can tell a number of races, prestige classes etc. have been released, but I've no idea what the setting is all about. Is there a main setting book coming or are you releasing everything peacemeal?
Thanks!

My Answer:

OK there are several answers to this but first off let me say, THERE IS A MAIN SETTING BOOK FOR NEOEXODUS: A HOUSE DIVIDED COMING OUT SOON!!!! As what I have done with several other setting that we make we are going to release a For Free Version of the setting (This will contain all of the fluff material for the setting) and we will release a For Pay version of the campaign setting (This will have everything that is in the free version, plus with all the crunchy bits like ALL NEW NEVER SEEN BEFORE classes, feats, spells, monsters and etc). Both of these versions will be in PDF format.

What we are also doing is putting the NeoExodus: A House Divided Campaign Setting IN PRINT AVAILABLE AT YOUR FLGS!!!! So you can get this setting any way you want, PDF or Bookshelf version, it is all up to you.

What the NeoExodus: A House Divided Campaign Setting is about is best described as a "Fantasy Punk" setting. The official Core Ethos Sentence of the setting is: NeoExodus is a world of fantasy punk where the heroes use their swords, covert and political actions along with magic to perform deeds that earn them fame and notoriety and even possible save the world. NeoExodus has several different "reasons" and "events" that are jumping on points for PCs including:

1) Imagine a world a woman kills her own older sister and then frames her own older bother for the crime just so she can become ruler of an empire. How could you bring her to justice and what might she do to you to stop you?

2) Imagine a world where the largest organized religion and an empire with the 2nd largest military force join forces to spread their idea and beliefs over the entire world, by any means necessary. What do you think would happen to you if you didn’t believe as they do and how could you stop them?

3) Imagine a world where a deadly plague has infected an area with a highly deadly and highly intelligent quicksilver liquid looking creature that takes over the bodies of those it infects, feeds off of them, staying hidden, and only strikes out when it has been discovered or to get more food. How do you stop something you can see until it is also too late?

4) Imagine a world where the total and complete information, secrets and arcane knowledge of the world for the last 5,000 years is in one secret location where anyone can get access to this information as easy as just by asking for it. What do you think certain individuals would do to keep and control that information and knowledge for themselves?

And these are just SOME of the interesting ideas and set-up for NeoExodus: A House Divided. As I have stated before, NeoExodus is unlike any other fantasy setting you have ever seen, so keep checking out the stuff and the products we release. We have some big plans for NeoExodus.
