Now available in advance PDF from DriveThruRPG: Trinity Continuum: New Lives, a Storypath Tasty Bit!

The Paths included in the Trinity Continuum Core Rulebook provide a solid foundation from which to create a character.

These Paths and Skill Tricks are designed for use with the Trinity Continuum Core Rulebook but are suitable for characters in any era.

This PDF is part of the “Storypath Tasty Bits” program, where every month in 2021 Onyx Path offers a small product that ties into one of its Storypath games.

The Victorian Mage Indiegogo Campaign is Live!

Mage: The Ascension, Press Releases

Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition: Victorian Age is now live on Indiegogo!

Within this book you will find details of the state of the great magickal powers in this era: the Order of Reason, preparing for their metamorphosis into the Technocratic Union and riding upon the great beast of Empire; the Council of Nine, now merely eight, caught in infighting and looking for a new peer; and the Crafts, the manifold practices of magick across the world, who fight to save their peoples from conquest and exploitation.

In addition, Victorian Mage includes an examination of life as a magus in the stratified society of Imperial Britain and the wider empire; rules reflecting the difference in how magick works during this age, when the Consensus of the Technocracy has yet to enfold the globe; and a gazetteer of the Victorian world, touching on cultures and conflicts across the globe as empires struggle for dominance and the masses struggle simply to survive.

This Victorian Mage Indiegogo campaign is designed to enable us to create a deluxe hardcover edition of this supplement, designed to match the look and feel ...READ MORE

Go, Go, Go!

Go over to Indiegogo!

That’s right, the Deluxe Mage 20th Anniversary Edition: Victorian Age crowd funding campaign is going to start on Indiegogo tomorrow, Tuesday the 23rd, at 2pm Eastern US time!

Here’s the link to the pre-launch page, if you want to sign up to be alerted, or just be ready come 2pm tomorrow! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/victorian-mage-ttrpg/coming_soon

What? But why after 50 Kickstarter campaigns would you drop it for Indiegogo, Rich? (Says somebody hypothetical).

We wouldn’t, actually. We’re experimenting with another crowd-funding platform like Indiegogo because we want to be sure we have options and alternatives. Plus, we like to shake things up a bit and see if we can get the word out about the project to another audience.

I’m actually working with James right now to set up our next Kickstarter campaign; which is for Trinity Continuum: Adventure!.

But besides the question of leaving Kickstarter, which we’re not, I’ve also heard a few other concerns from folks since I mentioned this last week. One concern I heard was that on Indiegogo a campaign has no funding target that means ...42 COMMENTS
