A Month On Mars [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

 

Wow. We are indeed closing in on a month of visiting the red planet via the Cavaliers of Mars Kickstarter campaign!

Now, the KS is closing in on its last few days, and we raised quite a bit more than expected (wow 700%+) and were able include some cool extra Stretch Goal projects so far. Really looking forward to see what the usually energized last days will bring.

Most importantly, thanks to our KS backers, Onyx Path can now be sure that we are able to fully bring a complete new world to all the gamers out there looking for sword and sorcery, pulpish fun, but with a modern sensibility appropriate for our community today.

That’s really what this is all about, and why Rose’s idea for this game was so appealing. I want Onyx Path to have the range to handle huge expansive settings and also be able to create a focused, “jewel box” of a game, and Cavaliers is just that. Even the system, which Rose and I discussed many times, is something designed to work specifically with the other game design in the game and reflect and complement the setting. (Rather than using an existing system, as was the case several times as Cavaliers of Mars was iterated upon during its creation).

So please join us before the KS ends Thursday, here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/cavaliers-of-mars-a-tabletop-roleplaying-game

But before Thursday hits, we have our weekly Wednesday sale day, and while I usually let the info in our BLURBS! section do all the talking about what is going on sale, this week we have something I wanted to highlight for ya’ll.

Maybe for obvious reasons considering my background as an illustrator, art director, and visual designer, but I’m just really impressed by The Art of Mage: 20 Years and More art book that Satyr Phil Brucato has written for our M20 line.

As you should expect from Phil, not only is it lusciously illustrated by Mage: The Ascension artwork from the first edition core book all the way up to our latest M20 releases, but it is an in-depth and interesting read filled with personal anecdotes from Phil’s years interacting with artists and the original WW‘s and Onyx Path‘s production departments.

There is even a one-page breakdown of each stage of the creation process for a book that we’re intending to pull out and link to in the future so everyone can get a better idea of each of those stages we list below in the progress list on this blog. (Page 11, if you have the book).

When you order it, I strongly suggest you go for the Premium printing version, the way that reproduces the art will be well worth it!

Like I mentioned last week, I spent this Saturday at the Save Against Fear convention in Harrisburg, PA, and had a great time. As always, it is not a big con, but the attendees are energized and willing to come and game for days for a great cause. Here’s my friend and the prime motivator of the convention and the Bodhana Group, Jack Berkenstock:

He is just such a huge nerd.

One of the highlights was sitting down in a circle with a huge bunch of other game designers and answering questions on publishing, game design, graphics, and I was once again able to elicit gasps by describing Pugmire as a world where an entire culture is sitting at the window waiting for the masters to come home.

Actually, Pugmire continued to be a huge part of what folks were talking to me about at the con, even though most of the people I talked to got started with WW and Onyx Path through the old WW game lines. That was very cool. Also cool was being able to pick up the Havenfall deck-building card game set in an 8-bit medieval-fantasy world that was just getting started two years ago when I talked to creator Joe Yzquierdo. Going to be playing this with my kids soon, but you have got to see the 8-bit art Joe and his wife Emily have created for the game: http://havenfall.com

It was really great to see how they brought their game to fruition, and there were actually a surprising number of folks who have created very different games there, with really different systems and subject matters. And watch out game designers: the smartest designer I met there is in his early teens!

Finally, a huge shout out to remind folks that our own Black Hatt Matt McFarland’s new Kickstarter for his Undead supplement to his company’s new version of the classic Chill is in its last two weeks, and could use your support to get it over the top! Check it out here, and pledge if you love incredibly well written horror: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/playattentiongames/undead-a-sourcebook-for-chill-3rd-edition-horror-r/

And with that, I only want to leave you with one more thought, our Onyx Path motto:

Many Worlds. One Path.

A Land Where Legends Walk

Drawing enthusiastically on Greek mythology, the revised and re-imagined Scarred Lands nonetheless retains its place as a modern fantasy RPG setting. This is a world shaped by gods and monsters, and only the greatest of heroes can expect to be counted among them. The most populous continent of Scarn, Ghelspad, plays host to vast unexplored regions, hides unsolved riddles from ancient cultures, and taunts adventures with the promise of undiscovered riches hidden among the ruins of older civilizations.

Yet the myths of the Scarred Lands are relatively recent events. The effects of the Titanswar still ripple through the world, and the heroines and villains of many of these stories are part of living memory, if not still living.

The Award-Winning Fantasy Setting Returns

Scarred Lands has been a favorite fantasy setting since the release of the Creature Collection for the d20 System in 2000. In subsequent years, over 40 titles were published for Scarred Lands, making it one of the most fully supported fantasy RPG settings ever and the premiere product line of Sword & Sorcery Studios.

Available in both 5th Edition and Pathfinder compatible versions! PDF and PoD formats available NOW!

http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/193014/Scarred-Lands-Players-Guide-Pathfinder

http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/197803/Scarred-Lands-Players-Guide-OGL-5e

 

Heroes, Villains, and Others in Between! 

This tome is a revision of the original book by the same title, originally published for use with 3rd edition rules for the world’s most popular roleplaying game. In this revised edition of The Wise & the Wicked, all the same characters have returned (and we’ve added some new ones, too!), for use with the Scarred Lands Player’s Guide. 

Champions of Gods and Titans 

The Wise & the Wicked introduces a rogue’s gallery of the Scarred Lands’ movers and shakers, characters who carry out the will of the gods or the fallen titans. These non-player characters can be friends, enemies, or simply convenient resources for the player characters in your game.

Inside, find villains such as King Virduk of Calastia, the Black Dragon, along with his wife, the beautiful (and black-hearted) Queen Geleeda; the Grand Vizier to King Virduk, the wicked warrior-mage Anteas; and the sinister general of Virduk’s northern armies, Archduke Traviak the Steel-Fisted. At the other end of the spectrum, meet the gracious Lady Ariniel, the Swan Knight, champion of Madriel; Kimer the Shatterer, bearer of the Earth Sword of Scarn and tenacious foe of the titanspawn of the north; and King Thain the Just, the Aleking, ruler of Burok Torn. And many others beside!

Here you’ll find a fascinating compendium of characters from the Scarred Lands, but easily transported into campaigns set elsewhere. In addition, find multiple appendices full of new magic items and artifacts, class archetypes and prestige classes, new feats, new creatures and races, and more.

Available in Pathfinder and 5th Edition versions! PDF and PoD formats available NOW!

From the massive Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras main book, we have pulled this single chapter, Dark Eras: God’s Own Country (Geist: The Sin-Eaters New Zealand 1950s). World War II is over and a new age of technology is coming, but a hidden storm threatens to overwhelm both the Maori and the European New Zealanders, flooding the world with the restless dead. The Bound are the last line of defense between a spirit-world gone mad and a sleepy island nation concerned with the advent of rock and roll and mourning their lost soldiers.

On sale in PDF and physical copy PoD versions on DTRPG! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/218455/Dark-Eras-Gods-Own-Country-Geist-the-SinEaters

 

 

 

EX3 Music Suite #1: Fanfare for the Chosen sounds off long and proud on DTRPG! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/213806/Fanfare-for-the-Chosen-An-Exalted-3rd-Edition-Music-Suite

Fanfare for the Chosen includes inspiring soundtrack themes for each of the ten types of Exalted (Solars, Lunars, Sidereals, Dragon Bloodeds, Abyssals, Exigents, Getiminans, Liminals, Infernals, Alchemicals), to set the tone as you encounter these Exalted in your games or are seeking inspiration for new stories.

 

 

 

 

From out of the Dreaming, the C20 Jumpstart: Yours To Keep PDF and PoD are now live on DTRPG.com: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/217594/Yours-to-Keep-A-Changeling-The-Dreaming-20th-Anniversary-Edition-Jumpstart

There is magic hiding everywhere. You just need to know where to look.

You are a changeling, a faerie soul hiding in a mortal body, fighting the chill of Nightmares and the oppressive weight of Banality with the pure creative power of Glamour. You have lived many lives, but the story of this one? It outshines them all.

In this hidden world, knights in steel and leather clash sword to sword outside the homecoming dance, dragons fly between skyscrapers, and fantastic castles rise from suburban lawns. A world of magic, intrigue, and adventure, and now that your fae side has awakened, it’s your world too.

Yours to Keep” includes a rules and setting overview, as well as pre-generated characters and a complete introductory scenario for Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition. It’s perfect for jumpstarting a new Changeling chronicle!

 

 

The PDF and PoD versions of C20 are now on DriveThruRPG.com: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/210616/Changeling-The-Dreaming-20th-Anniversary-Edition

Twenty years ago, White Wolf published Changeling: the Dreaming, the fifth of their promised five game-lines that together comprised the World of Darkness. Seen by some as a lighter, more fantasy-based setting in the modern-day, and by others as the darkest game White Wolf had yet created, players had to face the question of what happens once creativity and magic fades from their world.

This 20th Anniversary Edition of Changeling: the Dreaming returns to that deceptively bright yet terrifying world and both compiles and completes the concepts of the previous two editions. Led by veteran White Wolf and Onyx Path developer “Blackhat” Matt McFarland, our writing team consists of longtime Changeling creators like Ian Lemke, Jackie Cassada, Nicky Rea, and Peter Woodworth, as well as familiar names such as John Snead, Maggie Carrol, Matthew Dawkins, and Krister Michl. One and all are dedicated to making Changeling: the Dreaming Twentieth Anniversary Edition the most playable edition yet – while not losing the wonder, awe, and majesty that Changeling is known for.

  • A revised and up to date look at the World of Darkness through the eyes of the Kithain – what has happened to the Dreaming in the last 20 years, and what is the state of Glamour and dreams?
  • Rules for all of the kiths including in 2nd ed, plus fan favorites from other books: selkies, piskies, clurichaun, and both Arcadian and Concordian sidhe.
  • Rules for the Gallain: The inanimae, the hsien, the Nunnehi, and others!
  • An overhauled and reimagined system for fae magic, including new Arts and the powerful but dangerous practice of Unleashing!
  • New full-color beautiful artwork as well as classic Changeling illustrations including remastered full page pieces of the kiths by Tony Diterlizzi.

You may think that with a multitude of people coming, going, dying and running away, we’d be tired, done, or ready to give up.

– Elder Kincaid, Daeva Crone

TODAY’S REASON TO CELEBRATE: Over the weekend, our good friends Dhaunae and Lorenzo were joined in a vampire wedding! Even before Onyx Path, D&L would show up together at our “Eddy and Rich Talk On and On” panels at conventions, and they always, always, had great and timely questions to lob our way. They once missed a panel and I was pretty dejected that whole day. They make a great team, and I couldn’t be happier for them! Dark congratulations to a wonderful couple!

    Do we have any kind of eta on when the kickstarter for Changeling 2nd is going to start?

    • October 17, 2017 at 9:10 am

      Historically, Path kickstarters have tended to go live on Tuesdays, and the shortest turnaround time between campaigns that I can find was 10 days, so probably no earlier than Halloween.

    And that is all nice and well, but could we for the love of God just get the physical copy of A Thousand Years of Night?? 🙂

    Pretty please? I promise, I will buy two copies! 🙂

    I am at the stage where I am going to print it myself based on the advance pdf…

    Hey, Rich, will Ghost Hunters include material that can be used for chronicles set in the past or will it concentrate only on contemporary times? I know it is too early to ask for anything specific but I have been considering running a historical chronicle with heavy emphasis on ghost hunting and I wonder whether I should postpone it until the book comes out.

    • richt
      October 17, 2017 at 3:14 pm

      From Matt McElroy: There is no Dark Ages content in the book, though some of the ghost hunting organizations do have histories dating back to the Victorian Age at least and could be used then. Plus the Numina could have existed back then too.

      Hope that helps!

    Any chance we can get an art preview of the Pentex Handbook?

    It’s been so long in development(3 years!), us Werewolf fans could use something to brighten up(or darken) our day until its release.

    • richt

      I’ll suggest that to Mirthful Mike!

    Any idea when the EX3 storyteller screen will go on sale on IPR?

    • richt
      October 17, 2017 at 1:54 pm

      After I get a couple of weeks when I don’t get backers contacting me because they never told us they moved, or who just noticed their package was missing something so we need our KS shippers to ship and/or resolve the shipping problem, then I’ll ship the remaining EX3 books and screens and all to IPR.

      • Tim Flannigan
        October 17, 2017 at 2:12 pm

        Cool, thanks. I honestly thought all that was resolved already. I’ll keep watching for it.

    • richt
      October 20, 2017 at 1:09 pm

      I’d suggest keeping an eye on the Progress List each week. That’ll give you an idea of how close to release it is if it is in WW Approvals or the like.
