So we did actually have a Lunch Meeting this week, on Tuesday, and I’m actually rushing to write this up on Weds night before I head out Thursday to the airport and fly down to ATL for Atlanta By Night, the convention that has replaced the Grand Masquerade this year. This last week has been nuts, and thank you from the bottom of my heart to those of you who sent me condolences on the passing of my mother. Your kind thoughts meant an awful lot to me. But now, some quick updates as well as I can get these up here so you folks can see where we are this week- even if I’m still somewhat stunned and having to catch up myself.
- Eddy and I pretty much mostly talked about Atlanta by Night- we’ll be reprising our talk there about what’s going on with the White Wolf games and talk a bit about Onyx Path as well. Justin will be developing Anarchs Unbound for V20 right there on a panel that I’m going to sit in on to heckle him. Eddy has at least one of his informative and funny talks about bettering your LARPing, so that’s cool too, and I’m going to try and sit in on at least one Wrecking Crew tabletop game. Some of the WoD MMO guys will be there to with a panel and a presentation. And I hear there might be some parties and <gasp> drinking there too. If you’re going, or even just in Atlanta, come on by and ask us all about Onyx Path and our plans for nWoD, cWoD, Exalted, Scion, and Trinity.
- Sometime in the next two weeks we’re going to revise the schedule and get current with our release dates. Shouldn’t be a huge surprise in most cases, and the surprises should be the good kind for books that look like they’re going to hit the current announced dates.
- Cover for Silent Knife is almost done and will be added to the interior files and submitted for CCP approval.
- Mummy. Layout. Is happening. Slowly.
- W20 Kickstarter submitted to KS for their approval. W20 back totally from Editing- all in layout’s hands now. Full page art still coming in.
- NWO art all in. In layout.
- EX3- boy, those guys are writing a lot of stuff. I swear I’ll get sig character sketches out next week.
- Children of the Revolution for V20 is going to be available from DTRPG in PDF and PoD sometime in October if things go as planned. The date that is viewable on their site that gives the release date as next year is not the actual date, it’s a placeholder so the current PDF can’t be sold early. The Deluxe CotR is at the printer and I expect a proof right before I leave tomorrow. Will photograph and post with an Update to all the KS backers.
- God Machine and Strix Chronicles are rolling along.
Reason To Drink: Raise a glass to Mary Thomas, who I was most fortunate to have as my mother, and who set me on this Onyx Path by reading me Tarzan novels as bed time stories when I was five.
