Through a Diamond Wall to December [Monday Meeting Notes]Monday Meeting, News
So it’s the last day of November. The calm before the storm (or Firestorm, as depicted by Sam Araya in this gorgeous full-page illustration from Promethean 2nd Edition).
December looks like it is going to be just crazy, so here a few points about next month that I want to share (these came out of our talks today, in case you think I really don’t take notes each week):
1- If you haven’t yet ordered any PoD books from DTRPG, I suggest you do so this week ASAP if you want them by Christmas. Our PoD proofs are taking longer than usual to get made and shipped, so fair warned and all that.
2- We’ll be starting the Deluxe Changeling: the Dreaming 20th Anniversary KS next week, we hope. There are always a lot of moving pieces to these things, but that’s the target. It will stretch through into early January and should be just crazy as the last of the “Big Five” 20th Anniversary books.
3- Our friends at WWPublishing/Paradox will be at a convention in Germany around the 12th of the month ...16 COMMENTS

Eddy Remains Not Dead for Thanksgiving. [Monday Meeting Notes]Monday Meeting, News
In the category of “things to be grateful for”, we have the fact that Fast Eddy Webb was not killed by terrorists as he watched the WWE in Atlanta. As we understand it, there was a threat made about the event.
So that’s a good thing.
The Eddy not being dead part, not the threatening.
Yes, it’s the time of the year where we here at Onyx Path give up some thanks for our Thanksgiving holiday here in the US (which we’ll be celebrating Thursday and I hear some of us might take Friday off too!) I’ll slide in a few comments about how stuff is going here along with them, too.
To start with, I’m thankful that things are starting off great with our friends at the new White Wolf Publishing as we piece together a new working relationship with a team that truly is excited and cares about the two World of Darknesses and Exalted.
Fast Eddy Webb sez: “I’m thankful for a community that’s excited and enthusiastic about Onyx Path trying new things like Pugmire.”
I remain thankful that Onyx can work with both ...70 COMMENTS

Lost Fera: Apis

Shattered, smothered, covered, chunked, diced, peppered, capped, and topped. [Monday Meeting Notes]Monday Meeting, News
Amazingly, the Waffle House menu list of options for their home fries of scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, diced, peppered, capped, and topped, sound a lot like a description of this illustration by Ron Spencer for the W20 Shattered Dreams book.
I have no idea why that came to mind except I just saw a video of Anthony Bourdain, who I find always fun to watch, extolling the virtues of Waffle House, a chain of eateries ubiquitous to the southern US. Hey, it gave me a blog title this week, which is not always the easiest thing to come up with.
Of course, I wouldn’t have been thinking about W20 Shattered Dreams if the Kickstarter for the Deluxe Edition was not in it’s last 5 days. We’ve added a link to the final chapter (on the War of Tears) as that text has now been OK’d by developer Snappy Stew Wilson to reveal to folks.
I got a message from a prospective backer worried that the book just detailed ways to waste his beloved Changing Breeds, and No! it is not that at all. This book ...72 COMMENTS

The W20 Changing Breeds Kickstarter was a lot of fun for us, and we got a great product out of it, detailing all the various Fera. If you’ve ever wondered about the history of the Fera and their various conflicts with the Garou — the War of Rage being perhaps the most notable — then you may be interested in our current Kickstarter for a deluxe edition of Shattered Dreams.
We have 10 days to go and we’re inches away from $50,000!
Just Need a Kick to get Started. [Monday Meeting Notes]Monday Meeting, News
As a follow up to last week’s blog (which you can get to in a click here: http://theonyxpath.com/a-pair-of-ducks-bought-white-wolf-monday-meeting-notes/, thanks Monica!), I had a very nice conversation with the CEO of the new White Wolf Publishing, Tobias Sjogren last week. The art above by Brian LeBlanc for W20 Shattered Dreams is the exact opposite of the nature of our call, although I’m sure Tobias would have jumped a Wyrm beast with me if I had asked. So far, there’s not a lot I can share with you folks, because really, this was more along the lines of getting to know each other and hanging out in a coffee shop than a first date.
We did talk a fair bit about Kickstarters and how they have tied into our WW IP efforts, though, and how I wanted to be sure he understood that these are ongoing deliveries and not a one book and done sort of thing for us. Our talk and a couple of follow-up emails with our old friend Martin Ericsson who missed the chat due to a fever from too much ...74 COMMENTS
