The Realms TRIUMPHANT! [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

Of course, I’m talking about the Realms of Pugmire Lickstarter, sorry, Kickstarter, that went live and funded last week!

Here’s a message from Pugmire creator Eddy Webb, sent at great expense as he flies across the Atlantic Ocean:

A huge thanks to all the good dogs (and excellent cats) who have backed the Kickstarter so far! I’m always glad when we fund, because it means the new edition will be made! That said, we’d love to hit some of the exciting stretch goals we have planned, so it would be a huge help if everyone who has already backed talked about the campaign with a few friends over the next few days. Let’s make this campaign as big as possible!

As usually happens during the first week of a crowdfunding campaign, we get all sorts of questions. If we get enough on a particular topic, we’ll fine-tune the campaign text or add items to the project FAQ – depending on how best we can clarify things.

In this case, we’re pretty sure that some potential backers are concerned or confused or just unsure ...5 COMMENTS

Now Available: 60% off Founder’s Day Sale! Plus: They Came from North Herald Beach!

Realms of Pugmire, Sales, Scion, They Came From Beneath The Sea!

Now available from DriveThruRPG: North Herald Beach, a Storypath Tasty Bit for They Came from Beneath the Sea!

Herald is a sleepy little tourist town on the West Coast. It has two beaches: South Beach, where families can find a string of cozy B&Bs as well as adorable mom ‘n pop stores, and the more reclusive North Beach. North Beach is more difficult to access, and has no recorded amenities save several picnic tables. It catches good waves though, and North Beach is popular with surfers, teens trying to get away from their parents, and anyone else who prefers a bit of solitude.

This Tasty Bit for They Came from Beneath the Sea! presents you with North Herald Beach and its perils, as well as three brief encounters for each peril with which characters may interact in an antagonistic or diplomatic manner. A map suitable for most VTT platforms is also included.

Realms of Pugmire 2nd Edition Kickstarter has launched!

Press Releases, Realms of Pugmire

Dogs have inherited the world, building the kingdom of Pugmire untold centuries after the Ages of Man are over. These dogs have been uplifted to use tools and language, and they seek to rediscover the ruins of the Old Ones. Some have learned to use the leftover technology of humanity, but they believe it to be magic handed to them by their lost gods. Others seek to create an ideal civilization, using a Code of Man compiled from ancient, fragmentary lore left behind by humanity. The world is dangerous and mysterious, but good dogs will persevere.

As the dogs explore the world, they create and invent many new things, but also use what they can salvage. Some have even learned how to use the strange artifacts left behind by the Old Ones — rare and unusual magic relics, spells, and enchantments. We might dimly recognize them as the results of some far-flung futuristic invention, but any sufficiently-advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Our main goal, besides being Good Dogs, is to enable Onyx Path to create a fully-developed PDF and two hardcover ...READ MORE

[Realms of Pugmire] Random Doggo

Open Development, Realms of Pugmire

Gamers of a certain age may remember the days of random character creation, where the dice determined what you were playing. And it was deemed bad, and from then decades of games were designed to give players the chance to make exactly the characters they wanted. I was definitely at the front of that queue, celebrating skill points and templates and dot allocation and anything else that allowed me to make exactly the character I wanted, damn it.

But over the years, I’ve warmed back up to random character creation. Sometimes I don’t have a concept in mind. Sometimes I like the creative challenge of trying to make random bits stick together. And honestly, sometimes I just want to roll some dice and start playing. Since I was making a brand-new edition of my favorite game, I figured I had an opportunity to scratch that design itch.

Now, this is entirely optional – you can still make characters more or less the way you did before. But even in the original Pugmire book, I had little tables you could choose from, but also always had 6 or 8 or 10 options, so you could roll if ...READ MORE

Scion Jumpstart on roll20

Sales, Scion

A Light Extinguished: A Jumpstart for Scion 2nd Edition is now available on Roll20!

Someone has killed Bai Amari, the Luminary, a well-respected and beloved Scion of Ra. Who would want such a thing? Who could muster enough power to end the immortal life of a demigod? Is this a declaration of war? Who is behind this terrible tragedy?

The Gods and their children feel the tremors of Titanic influence behind the mystery of the Luminary’s killing and have asked key personages (the player characters) to investigate if something more sinister is afoot. Mortal law enforcement investigated the murder on a mundane level, but they need the Scions’ power: Whoever it was must have the backing of someone, or something, supernatural.

In this jumpstart, the characters must help solve the murder of an important member of their divine community before her killer can strike again and awaken a bright and terrible power.

This jumpstart adventure includes everything you need to play a full game of Scion Second Edition:

A complete story designed to be played either in one long session or over the course of several shorter sessionsFive ...READ MORE

Submitted For Your Approval…[Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

The topic of approval submissions is kind of on my mind, as we’ve had a fair number just today! It’s like the Twilight Zone over here!

First off, we submitted the Realms of Pugmire campaign to Kickstarter, so now the clock ticks to see if we can get this this OK’d so we can go live next week. Fingers (doggie paw-fingers?) crossed!

Which reminds me of last Friday’s Onyx Pathcast that the gang had me in on – we talked about projects and stuff coming up in 2023. One of the things I noted that I was looking forward to was returning to offering dice during our crowdfunding campaigns. We’re not sure if we’ll have that deal set up in time for the Realms of Pugmire KS, but we’re sure trying to wrap things up in time for it!

So, even if we don’t start the KS next week with dice already happening…keep an eye out for later in the campaign.

Here’s a rundown of the things we discussed:
