Definite upswing

I handed in the final drafts of There's Only Music So That There's New Ringtones (and boy, anyone who works out what that is and why gets a prize... when the project's all official, of course) on Wednesday. Near the end there, I wasn't exactly feeling at my best.

I read this from Ethan at the time, and was heartened. I'm reposting it here because it still heartens me, and I don't want to lose it to the churn of the forums (and because others named might not have seen it).

Just finished up reading Tribes of the Moon.

It's good. Seriously. It's a passionate, clever book that is brimming with love of the tribes, and love of the glory and tragedy that comes with being Uratha. The guys who worked on this get Werewolf, they really do — and more than that, they love it and they write about it well. It opens with the fury of the Blood Talons and closes with the unrelenting badassedness of the Storm Lords, and all points between are passionate, brutal and smart.

Chuck, Matt, Travis, Stew and Aaron did great on this one. And there's more yet to come.

Just occasionally, I need to read something like that.

Awesome! Where'd he post that?

The Werewolf section of the White Wolf forum. I'd provide you with a link, but there appears to be some kind of database error.

Ah. Yes.

Cheers. Edited into the original post.

Where'd you read that Ethan bit, by the by?

Edited the main post with wyrm_chris's link to the source above.

Oh, and it's worth mentioning:

Everybody kicked a whole new level of ass on that book, I can't lie. If it ended up being the last book ever published for Werewolf (and Jesus, let's hope that's not true), I'd think it a fitting and noble capper to the line.

YOu realize your statement will have people panicking that it IS the last book. :P
Nov. 2nd, 2007 08:58 pm (UTC)
Yeah. It's now an internet fact that Tribes of the Moon is going to be the last Werewolf book!

You have no idea ...
... what panic's going to start if your jest became accepted as Gospel. :)

Let me feed the fire by saying: If it's the last book for WtF, I'd be perfectly OK with that. I can't think of what else the line needs.

I can't think of what else the line needs.

However, that pretty much confirms the continuation of the line. In my experiences, game lines usually end one book too short (Trinity and Changeling both being short a splat book as of their ending) or two books too long (too many to count).

I hear you.

I hope to fuck that it's not — the WW LJ mentioned that Ethan was working on another Werewolf book past Tribes, so I'm pretty sure it's not. But that doesn't matter. I'm sure everyone's going to love it. Or whinge that each tribe needed its own book and the one doesn't do them justice.

Well, maybe a little fear of this being the last book will get people to buy it, thus helping ensure a last minute reprieve.

Of course, all that's for nothing -- I only meant that if by some gross misfortune the line ended there, I think it would be a memorable epitaph. I know more books are coming, so I'm not concerned.

Purely hypothetical.

But may the fear push others to buy, buy, buy.
