I'm now closing the call for playtesters, as the playtest has started. (I may be fast-talkable, but you'll have to read the archived posts.)

That depends on if you've been hanging around on the mailing list for the last couple of playtests -- that would give you the identity of one probable suspect. Another one is in the queue. Another one is yet to enter playtest.

The timing of everything depends, of course, on Scott's workload and probably what SJ thinks of them. O:> He can be very . . . eloquent . . . when a manuscript is not up to his standards.

*crosses fingers* I truly hope that we'll see some new Minor Choirs & Bands with these expanded Superior write-ups. It always seemed strange to me that Blandine & Beleth were the only two who got any Minors...

Well, I think I disagree with this. I fear that too many new Minor Choirs/Bands wouldn't do the game any good, they'd just make it more bulky. For the space needed to describe a new Choir/Band just uses up space that could be (better, in my opinion) filled with more and deeper information concerning the already existing Choirs/Bands.
And I feel the same considering new Superior-writeups. I'd appreciate more in-depth descriptions of major Superiors following Zadkiel's release. (Am I going too far pointing towards Asmodeus, Kronos, Baal, Janus and Novalis?) But I certainly wouldn't even think of daring to put my humble opinion above the will of the game's creators...
(Yes, I know, it was more than flattering. It was awful. But I just got visited by the Demon of Exaggeration, a busy servant of... Well, of whom?)

Superiors are, at the moment, being written in order of which authors are available. Once we get the next two (Zadkiel and X) out of the way, I'll be talking with Scott about Who's Next? (Third Base.)

After Zadkiel, there's really only Christopher as a minor, though.

Minor Choirs and Bands are unlikely to get written up in great detail, if they appear at all, in Superior writeups. (The exception would be the Pachadim, who would mirror Blandine's Menunim.)

So does that mean Litheroy is already being written?

Litheroy went to playtest a while back (which was announced in the mailing list at the time) and is in the queue.
