Yes a new sourcebook!
The map of the realms does look amazing, hopefully the back of the map of Phoenix territory has at the other side the map of the realms.
A good and logical choice to put the Centipede clan together with the Phoenix.
With this book, there seems to be no pattern which sourcebook they are releasing.

My speculation on which new Schools we will get in the book:

Crab: A Kuni [something]

Crane: Asahina Archer or Kakita Artisan

Dragon: Agasha Armor/Weaponsmith

Lion: Matsu Beastmaster

Phoenix: Ishikin (Void Adept)

Scorpion: Soshi Shadow Adept

Unicorn: Iuchi [something]

Centipede: Priestess of the Sun

Sweet!

At least two more books. It is the first time the Celestial Realm get a full book for themselves, right? 

Looks that way. I know there was a good amount of info in Secrets of the Empire for 4e (around 45 pages worth).

I think we're much more likely to get a Kitsu school, and if I'm being honest that's probably colored a bit by how much I utterly dislike the idea of the beastmaster school. It feels like it belongs in a 90's network fantasy action drama.

An adventure for deceased PCs?  That sounds really interesting.  I wonder if it's going to address the hints about things going wrong that were in Emerald Empire.

This adventure has me so curious right now.

Is a 3rd Kitsu school likely, though?

Anyone else being a little bit sad that this book doesn't contain information on the Moth Clan instead of the Centipede? Considering the Moth's focus on a different realm?

I think the Phoenix book having the Centipede Clan was a foregone conclusion.

But on the other hand, I would have said the same about the Crane book with Sparrow, so... Maybe they didn't want to have two new Minor clans back to back. Plus, adding Centipede gives the Mantis Great Clan another one of their families.

I might have to abandon my dreams of the Mantis never becoming a Great Clan... 😭

Why? They might very well become one. The story keeps going!

Your school curriculum will probably stay with errors in it though. Sorry about that!
