I'm excited about 3e. I doubt Lilith is gone forever. Maybe her role will switch and be henchman to a different NB Master to get a chance at Nekima again. Titania perhaps? I also enjoy how it seems like the NB are getting ready even more for a civil war. Titania building up allegiances and such. Though, I understand the Collodi and Lynch people feel jilted, I never really thought much of them thematically. Collodi more so than Lynch for sure. Anyway, take my opinion with a grain of salt as I have only actually been playing for the last couple of months, even if I got interested in the game near a year ago. Also, I just want to add that by description, it sounds like Neverborn as a whole just got a power up. I mean, a few of these masters, and potentially their crew, sound like they will be a lot tougher than the Neverborn were known for.
