Ashes to Ashes, Rust to Rust! [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

Up rises Dead Man’s Rust as its Kickstarter passes the funding goal!

Thanks to everyone who backed it so far, and there’s even more coolness to come as we start achieving Stretch Goals during these remaining three weeks! Here’s the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/339646881/dead-mans-rust-a-mega-adventure-for-scarred-lands-5e

You can check out the Media section below for all sorts of interviews and Actual Play and description videos, and here’s a few tidbits to give some insight into this bad-ass mega-adventure!

Geek Native posted this awesome review of the manuscript: https://www.geeknative.com/103605/scarred-lands-mega-adventure-a-review-of-dead-mans-rust/

The review is worth reading in it’s entirety on their site, but let me just pop out this one quote:
“I’m keen to avoid spoilers but the second strength of the campaign to acknowledge is how it goes for the jugular.”

And since I’m doing the quote thing, here’s another from Travis Legge, the dev for the book, talking about a section of the text revealed to backers today:

The dwarven village of Freehome is an example of new beginnings in the wake of the Divine War and the horrors that followed. When Mormo’s blood tainted the Broadreach forest and the elves merged with the wood to fight the encroaching corruption, the Broadreach dwarves were left to stand alone. Taking advantage of the chaos, the necromancers of Glivid-Autel invaded the forest, seeking corpses to animate and survivors to enslave. The dwarves fell to the onslaught, and spent over a century bound in servitude to the foul death mages.


When the Broadreach elves emerged from the woods and discovered the fate of their dwarven allies, they stormed the necromancer stronghold.

Through magic and luck, the elves were able to extract the dwarves from their captors and bring them safely to the Broadreach Horizon. Though much of the dwarven ancestral lands are now part of the Hornsaw Forest, Freehome stands as a beacon of hope and a bastion of safety for the dwarven people. Freehome is also a monument to the bond between the elves and dwarves of the Broadreach.

This village is home to many half-elves, born of marriage between the elf clans and the dwarves. Though half-elves are nothing new to Ghelspad, they are rarely found in such numbers as Freehome boasts.

Here are a few selected parts of the text today, just to give non-backers an idea as to how Travis and his awesome team brought the village to life:

Politics
The Broadreach dwarves welcome any who come with the intention to do no harm. Since much of their history was lost during the time the necromancers kept them enslaved, the dwarves cling to what traditions they can recall while happily welcoming ideas to create new ones. This includes welcoming all who wish to join them in Freehome, as they want to learn as much as they can. However, they are also fierce in defending their homes if it seems someone wants to attack — there are still dwarves alive who suffered through the pain of their time in Glivid- Autel, and they fight to ensure that never happens again.

While Freehome is primarily a dwarf village, there are still plenty of elves who call the village in the trees home. With so many nearby clans of both elves and dwarves, inter-clan politics can be difficult, but everyone who lives in Freehome knows that no matter what else happens, they will stand together against any outside threat. Though the clans have their own political systems, any clans who are friendly and willing to abide by Freehome’s rules are welcome to visit the village at any time. Additionally, the Physical Artisans tree cluster maintains several shops and booths specifically for the nearby clans to come sell their wares and goods, as this village is more likely to be visited by travelers, and most of the clans consider it a fairly neutral area and tend not to bring inter-clan conflicts with them into the village.

Current Events
The following are excellent events for the adventurers to learn more about Freehome and its many inhabitant or possibly the starting point for an adventure to begin. The Cut ‘n’ Carve Fest and Light Vigil are holidays that occur once a year while the Monthly Council Hearings happen exactly once a month.

Cut ‘n’ Carve’ Fest. A cross-clan affair where they gather sticks and dead brambles for a month before the fest. During this annual three-day festival, each clan has an elective tell a story from the past year (sad, hilarious, epic) while the participants carve two small totems. Half the totems are sold to fund village services, and the other half, each person may give one they make to a friend. The more sentimental clan members keep theirs in honored spots in their home.

Light Vigil. Every spring, on the first occurrence of Belsameth’s new moon, Freehome holds the Light Vigil in remembrance of those lost to the necromancers’ cruelty in Glivid-Autel. Bards play the flute in remembrance of the bard who played through all the years of the dwarves’ oppression and kept their spirits up, and any magic users who are able cast spells that create lights or illusions, representing the elf spirits who helped guide the dwarves home and acting as beacons along the many paths throughout Freehome. All in Broadreach Horizon are welcome to attend the Vigil, and the ceremony brings visitors from many of the surrounding clans each year.

Monthly Council Hearings. At these meetings, the local dwarves and elves have a chance to speak their minds on local politics, branch expansion, and seasonal leaf coverage. The century of hollow legionnaires moving into the region have created a small rift in the community. The Splinters, as they call themselves unironically, voice their concerns loudly about the Rust spreading to flesh and oft repeat ‘think about the children.’

Another local topic is about the hoarding of Great Tree leaves as the seasons shift. Most of the leaves are usually mulched for compost, some are used by Cronix for apothecary elixirs, some by the Stennor Siblings for shellacking onto memorials and signs for town. There is no official protocol but recently people have reported neighbors hoarding the leaves and the unfortunate stench that begins to permeate through the Twig Terraces.

Here are a couple of the many story-hooks presented in the chapter, which also contains a full description of the location and the people of the village:

Story Hooks
Hrolla wishes to ensure Dradoki Bronzeleaf (p. XX) knows what he’s getting into by returning to The Broadreach Horizon. They request that Dradoki shadow them for several days, learning how dwarven life has changed since Dradoki was last there. Dradoki requests the party’s assistance with this — many dwarves around the village request various tasks and favors from Hrolla and will ask for more from Dradoki. The party’s assistance with these tasks and mediating any disagreements that come up may determine how much trouble Dradoki has settling into the village.

A Temporary Fix. Find Cronix’s cure ingredients for the disease affecting the hollow legionnaires deep within the roots of the Great Tree in addition to plucking a leaf from the canopy of the Hornsaw Forest. The Cure will work temporarily, effectively stopping the progress of the disease. The rusted parts will not clear up and the hollow legionnaire is still contagious.

This Cure, while easing the mind, could be more dangerous in the long run as the ‘cured’ might spread the word but also spread the disease. The Cure only lasts until a sound of “steel on steel” or the “cry for help” is heard again. The GM can keep it to themselves depending on the makeup of the party or let everyone know the fullness of the Cure. The party may help sell the Cure (either oblivious or unaware of the caveat) along the road to help supplement their income to other villages and hollow legionnaires.

Of course, the full text is available to backers as per our usual method of providing sections of the text throughout the Kickstarter so that backers will ultimately have the complete manuscript by the time the KS is over.

What Else Was In Our Meeting Today?

We’re still pulling together info from our Customer Survey, but here’s a thing that stands out already.

A bunch of folks responded that their local game stores aren’t able to get the books we’ve put into distribution channels. Let me provide some thoughts on how to remedy that unwanted situation!

We’ve heard that stores can’t order our books, or they try and their distributors don’t have them. Studio2 can and does provide our books to both stores and distributors, so please encourage your friendly local store to contact Studio2 directly or to get their preferred distributor to do it.

If you are asking for our stuff, there’s a very big chance that others are looking for Onyx Path game books as well, so you’ll be doing others a favor while also helping yourself!

Our other sales partner, IPR, can ship to stores (or to individuals) as well:

https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/Retailer-Information.html

And here’s their handy FAQ:

https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/IPR-Prospective-Retailer-FAQ.html

TC: Aberrant art by Pat McEvoy

In further “how do we get our books to you” news, we made the call today to offer PDFs and other quicker to arrive items each Wednesday through December as any PoDs ordered now from DTRPG are not going to get to anyone before the holidays.

You CAN still order our traditionally printed books from IPR, and also potentially your store could get the books from Studio2 as I mentioned above. In fact, IPR is still running a sale at: https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/Onyx-Path-Publishing/

We also chatted about having a day tomorrow of Developer Town Halls, which have worked so well throughout the last year to keep our devs more connected with our company and vice versa, so please let me know if you have any questions for the Devs and I’ll pass them along!

Beyond that, we’d really like to have 2021 be a fresh start after 2020, as we know so many people do around the world, so we’re examining a lot of what worked to get us through 2020 and what we can do better with heading into 2021. We figure it’s better to try and set a few things in motion throughout December than try and cram things into January all at once.

After all that 2020 threw at us all, we’re all still traveling to:

Many Worlds, One Path!

https://youtu.be/72w-g5U0iJ0

Episode 148: Run.
The cabal ventures from the warehouse to the Vault. They were warned to touch nothing but the “lamp”. Casting spells may trigger wards, and who knows what traps and guardians lie in wait…

Session 4: The Covenant
The PCs are arrested by the Guardians of The Veil! They are offered a gift horse and make some political enemies in the Boston Consilium. By the end of the session the cabal has united in defiance and the spirit of butts. https://youtu.be/CmTRRE4in9k

Now, the Chasm is inhabited by spider-eye goblins and their spider allies, but it is also thought to be the resting place of powerful artifacts from that elder age.

    Unfortunately I haven’t seen any indication of the sale over at IPR. All of the Storypath books (as well as everything else) appears to be at full price. I know this isn’t something you can control but wanted to let you know in case it helps.

    Hi. What line is “People of the Crossroad Continent” going to be for?

      That’s Rich’s setting book based on the setting he’s been using for games for decades.

      Troy has it right: The Crossroads Continent is my longtime D&D setting that we’re going to slowly release a D&D 5e version of, starting with Peoples which is a primer for the different sorts of peoples living on the continent and with player character info like backgrounds, stats, and abilities for folks to include them in their own worlds.

    I didn’t know there was a Customer Survey. With all the craziness of COVID I haven’t been able to keep up with news. Is there any way to respond to it for people who missed it?

      Sorry, no. We closed it a week or so ago and are using the finished data to work up useful info for us. As you note, time and Covid are mixed very strangely.
