Canis Minor-ly [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

Why yes, first Canis Minor is a constellation. Constellations are groups of stars…in SPACE.

Can you see where this is going?

Trinity Continuum: Aeon has a whole lot of space action and exploration, and we’ve reached the part of the Kickstarter where we will start unlocking the full text to TC: Aeon in stages for all backers to read and wonder at!

(We have unlocked all of the text of the Trinity Continuum Core book these last two weeks, now it is TC: Aeon‘s turn).

For Impish Ian Watson and John Snead and all their aemazing writers, this is the end of a very long creative process. Just years and years since we knew we could greenlight the Trinity Continuum books. Now finally, backers will be able to read and dig into this labor of love!

If you are an Aeon Trinity (or Aeon/Trinity) fan from way back and haven’t backed yet, now is the time! In the unlikely event that you don’t like what you see, you can cancel your pledge before the KS is over and no harm, no foul. That has been our intention with this method of sharing the completed text from the start: it worked well with Changeling: The Lost 2nd‘s KS, and seems to be doing the same with this Trinity Continuum KS, too.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/trinity-continuum-aeon-rpg

 

And even if you aren’t interested, please let anyone you know who was a fan know that this Kickstarter is running right now. We really want to get as many of the fans from back when aware of this resurgence of not just the Trinity Universe, but of the whole Trinity Continuum!

 

 

But Canis Minor is also the name of our Pugmire Community Content program that is debuting this Thursday the 15th. It is entirely coincidental that the Year of the Dog starts right after this debuts.

Or is it?

This is the first of Onyx Path‘s Community Content portals to launch, but it certainly won’t be the last. These sorts of programs tie into everything we have been pushing for these last six or seven years; better and genuine communication and involvement with our community. From our Open Development Process to even these weekly snapshots of what’s going on behind the curtain, we’re committed to finding new ways to connect.

And now, with Canis Minor you can present your ideas to the community and maybe even get paid back a bit financially for your hard work. Here’s a link to a post Pugmire creator and developer Eddy Webb made about this program: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/main-category/cavaliers-of-mars-and-pugmire/1165525-canis-minor-faq-pugmire-community-content

Pugmire has a rich potential for additional projects – not only have we at Onyx Path barely scratched the surface of the world and all that it holds, but by Pugmire‘s very nature there are a lot of folks who love their Good Dogs so much that they are bubbling with ideas. Here then, is the portal to those ideas becoming a real thing that others can share and appreciate.

Obviously, there’s going to be a lot more info coming out this week about Canis Minor including a new post by Eddy updating his earlier one linked above, and we hope you’ll be able to take advantage of the opportunity and make some projects for Good Dogs!

After this, we’re working on both Scarred Lands and Scion Community Content, and I’m sure others as we get these first three rolling.

Finally, today was our first Monday Meeting with both newcomers Matthew “Call me Matthew” Dawkins, and Dynamic Dixie Cohran. We are all just thrilled to have them in on the call and contributing to the one meeting we are all locked into every week, and it’s already obvious they will be doing great things with Onyx Path.

Please join us in welcoming them into the INNER SANCTUM! Watch how we bend reality and alter Fate!

(Or, you know, review schedules, convention strategies, and debate the minutia of a press release).

No! Pay no attention to the parenthetical! We wield the Power Cosmic! We travel the cosmos and surf past Canis Minor as it barks and snaps on our way to:

Many Worlds, One Path!

 

 

BLURBS!

KICKSTARTER:

The Trinity Continuum Kickstarter went live January 30 and we’re almost half-way through, we have pledges headed towards 300% of our funding goal, over 1400 backers, and we’ve gone through nine Stretch Goals including VARGs, new Noetic Biotech, and Aberrants and their cults that will be added to the AEon AExpansion, a Trinity Continuum: Aeon novella entitled “Dawn“, and a scenario called “Caper, Incorporated” has been added to the In Media Res scenario collection PDF for the Trinity Continuum Core.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/trinity-continuum-aeon-rpg

Trinity Continuum: Aeon, is our reboot of the classic Trinity (Aeon) game, and Trinity Continuum: Core is the core book that all of our Trinity Continuum game lines will spin off from. Both books will be a part of this Kickstarter and backers have already received the first two quarters of the Trinity Continuum: Core text, with more to come. James Bell, our Kickstarter Manager, has been keeping this KS hopping, so we hope you’ll check it out!

Our next Kickstarter is slated to be EX3‘s Dragon-Blooded.

 

 

 

As we try and find ways to enable our community to more easily play our games, the Onyx Dice Rolling App is now live! Our dev team has been doing updates since we launched based on the excellent use-case comments by our community, and this thing is both rolling and rocking!

Last week the devs are added a whole bunch of new game lines’ dice and rolling bg’s and got caught by a bug Apple needed to fix, so be sure to update your app and soon that should be fixed.

There’s been tweaks to all elements of the UI, you can now preview every die type in the store, and you can use multiple die types per roll! Here are the links for the Apple and Android versions:

Appearing on DriveThruRPG this Wednesday are the PDF and PoD physical book versions of Arms of the Chosen for Exalted 3rd Edition! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/226224/Arms-of-the-Chosen

Take up the panoply of legendary heroes and lost ages, and awaken the world-shaking might of their Evocations. Before the dawn of time, the Exalted wielded god-metal blades to cast down the makers of the universe. In an ancient epoch of forgotten glories, Creation’s greatest artificers forged unimaginable wonders and miracle-machines.

Now, in the Age of Sorrows, kingdoms go to war over potent artifacts, scavenger princes risk everything to uncover relics of the past, and the Exalted forge great arms and armor on the anvil of legend. These treasures are yours to master.

Discover the mystical power of the five magical materials and the secrets of creating your own Evocations. Wield weapons of fabled might and don the armor of mythic heroes, making their puissance your own. Claim Creation’s wonders: the miraculous tools of the Chosen, living automatons, flying machines, hearthstones, and more. And unleash the mighty warstriders, titanic god-engines of conquest and devastation, to once more shake Creation with their footfalls.

 

 

 

 

Coming this Wednesday as an Advance PDF on DTRPG, we reveal The Secret of Vinsen’s Tomb, a Jumpstart adventure for Pugmire. (And yes, there will be a physical book PoD version coming soon). www.drivethrurpg.com/product/232337/The-Secrets-of-Vinsens-Tomb–A-Pugmire-Jumpstart

A cat living in Pugmire disappears, but neither the police dogs nor the cats of the Cat Quarter know why. When zombies attack the heroes, however, all signs point to an invasion by the Monarchies of Mau. But how does this intrigue tie into the lost tomb of the first king of Pugmire?

The Secret of Vinsen’s Tomb is a Pugmire story for three to six characters. This jumpstart contains all the rules and characters you need to play — just grab some dice and go! You can also use this adventure with the full version of Pugmire.

The Secret of Vinsen’s Tomb contains:

• An evocative and mysterious setting that’s both family friendly and deep enough to create compelling stories.

• A summary of Pugmire’s traditional fantasy rules system. It’s designed for streamlined play, with an emphasis on cooperation and action over competition and violence.

• A complete adventure for a Guide to run for three to six players. Also useful for Guides running a full Pugmire game of first or second level characters!

• Six ready-to-play characters, so you can jump into the action.

Can your good dogs discover the secret of Vinsen’s Tomb?

 

Also releasing this Wednesday on DTRPG is the physical book PoD version of the Pugmire Core Rulebook itself!

 

 

 

Is a life of running and hiding a life worth living? We say yes. There’s always something between the running and the hiding, and those moments of grace make it all worthwhile.

The Huntsmen Chronicle Anthology is a perfect companion piece to Changeling: The Lost, 2nd Edition. These stories spin tales of the Lost, of those abducted and enslaved by fairies. Those who escaped, but whose captors will stop at nothing to find them. These fairies summon forth the Huntsmen, primordial hunters who understand nothing but pursuit and capture. The Huntsmen are unstoppable monsters, and the Lost can only look to each other for respite, rare comfort, and rarer trust.

The Hedge has parted and you can get the PDF/electronic versions and the physical book PoD version of The Huntsmen Chronicle Fiction Anthology for Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition at DTRPG.com! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/210042/The-Huntsmen-Chronicle-Anthology

MONKEYWRENCHED! 

This is the unredacted version, replete with notes from the higher-ups! It took a lot to get this information out, so it’s had a chance to go through some monkeywrenchers’ hands before going to you. Make good use of it!

At last, one of the most legendary of Kindred will share his personal journal with you! V20 Beckett’s Jyhad Diary goes on sale in PDF and PoD versions on DTRPG.com! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/225322/V20-Becketts-Jyhad-Diary

It’s ever been a loaded word among vampires. Jyhad is in force everywhere from lofty, perfumed Elysium to cloying, smoke-filled blood feasts. Jyhad’s the eternal game played by elders, Methuselahs, and worse — it’s the agenda of beings so utterly beyond humanity, one such as yourself could scarcely understand its movements. 

Luckily for you, you’ve picked up a copy of my diary. With my help you may just take a step on the first rung of understanding. Information worth having is information you must earn through blood, and oh, how I’ve bled for what’s contained within these pages. 

— Beckett 

Beckett’s Jyhad Diary serves as the definitive book of setting and plot for Vampire: The Masquerade, containing 30 chapters spanning different geographical regions, encountering vampires of every clan, profiling obscure and profound segments of the mythology, and providing countless story hooks on every page.

Masterfully written by the likes of Neall Raemonn Price, Joshua Alan Doetsch, Myranda Sarro, Steffie de Vaan, Malcolm Sheppard, Alan Alexander, Renee Knipe, and Matthew Dawkins, Beckett’s Jyhad Diary is as fascinating to read as to use for your game Chronicles.

 

 

 

With a howl of RAGE, the W20 Changing Ways Advance PDF charges at you this Wednesday on DTRPG.com!

Changing Ways is an in-depth look at what it means to be a werewolf, both on a personal level and as part of a pack. It digs deep into what it feels like to have bones re-knit after breaking, the range of senses available across all forms, and the sudden heady rush of the Gifts and Rites bestowed by spirits. It also provides a look at what life is like for lupus and metis werewolves, characters who have had experiences alien to any person. It shows the many ways that werewolves organize in packs, and how those packs are designed as groups of warriors, rather than aligned to the behavior of wolves.

Changing Ways contains:

• A detailed look at what it means to grow up as a lupus or metis werewolf, and how that colors a character’s perspective.

• More information on what it feels like to be a werewolf, a creature that changes in both body and mind.

• Frameworks and organizations for packs, along with new tactics and systems for forging the pack as part of play.

 

 

 

Legacy of Lies, the V20 Dark Ages Jumpstart, goes undead in PDF and physical book PoD versions on DTRPG:

TWO PRINCES. BITTER RIVALS. AND A COTERIE CAUGHT BETWEEN THEM. 

Marcus Verus, the vampiric Prince of Chester, secretly prepares to go into torpor. Should his plans be made public, the Prince knows the wolves — both real and imagined — would launch an attack, threatening all within his domain.

That’s where you come in.

Legacy of Lies includes:

  • Basic rules for players and Storytellers
  • Introduction to the Vampire: The Masquerade Dark Ages setting
  • Introductory adventure
  • Characters for players and Storytellers

 

 

 

 

 

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!

Magnificent Monica Valentinelli and Mighty Matt McElroy are special guests at Capricon 38 in Wheeling IL this week (Thursday-Sunday). They’ve got a bunch of panels each and some games (Monica is running Hunter: The Vigil 2e and Matt’s running Pugmire).

He plans on spending some time in Artist Alley checking out artists – so if you are an artist interested in working for us, particularly with super-hero genre based Trinity Continuum: Aberrant coming up, say hi to Matt as he comes by!

        Ooooh! That sounds really exciting!
        I’m holding out hope that some (several?) will be by, or at least in the same style as, the artist(s?) who for the Ghostfisher, Armored Kraken and Ku Nenaveya (of the most recent 100 Devils NP and Enemies of the Righteous, respectively). Since I, personally, -loved- those art pieces, and found them to be (by far) some of the most”Exaltedy” and inspirational ones of the new edition so far.

        Yer all givin me a lot of hope 🙂

    Oh i noticed that despite the kickstarter being over you can pre-order changeling, silly as it might be to ask but is that option open for the wraith kickstarter as well?

    • richt
      February 12, 2018 at 9:57 pm

      Unfortunately, the Wraith20 KS was from before we adopted BackerKit, so we don’t have the BK “pre-order” option. Sorry.

    Looking forward to Dragon-Blooded! Any chance the text of The Realm could be made available alongside the D-B book at a certain pledge level, much like the Scion text was released to backers recently? I’d happily up my pledge for that, since it’s a natural accompaniment to a game with Dragon-Blooded PC’s.

      One thing I must let you in on, though, is that we announced a new licensed RPG game that we are looking forward to creating: Dystopia Rising Evolution! It is a new edition of the tabletop RPG originally published by Eschaton Media that has become such a huge hit in the Live Action community. It will be powered by the Storypath System, and is being developed by the ever-charming Eddy Webb.

    February 13, 2018 at 6:12 am

      Just keep watching the Monday Meeting Notes progress list. Layout takes time to do right, and has multiple phases of proofing.

    Any idea when we will get the backer pdf for dragon-blooded?
    After the kickstarter of course.

      As soon as we can without rushing through. We have most of the art, which is a lot of pieces, and usually we’ll look to add more during the KS. But we might not need that. Plus there are approvals, and remember that this is our dev team’s first go at a Big Book and a Kickstarter. So, “stuff” might happen, but with the text done and so much art finished, we’re in a really good spot.

    Are there plans to release the DB manuscript alongside the KS like you’ve done with your recent Kickstarters (CoM, CtL, Trinity, to name those I’m familiar with)? I’m super eager to start playing. I’m seconding a pledge level that adds the Realm book as well, kind of like how you’ve added supplements for both CtL and Trinity.

      One of the reasons we’ve held off on KSing Dragon Blooded has been to be sure we have a completed manuscript. Partly that was because of how we’ve been doing the KS with the manuscript releases, and partly because we are aware of how much trust we burned away in the EX community with the EX3 Kickstarter. We want to deliver quickly after the KS is over (which isn’t the week after, but could be months instead of years) and we want to be able to demonstrate that the text, which took so long before, has all been taken care of already. So I’m pretty sure that we’ll deliver the full text during the KS, although at worst there will be excerpts that equal “mostly” all of it.

    Can we possibly get the die rolling app on steam or the windows store. I can’t be the only person who doesn’t want a smartphone around to distract but has all of my documents on a windows tablet

      So very much right with you there. I have begun reading it cover to cover and am enjoying it tremendously so far! OP, you’ve outdone yourselves with this one! Can’t wait to have it in my hands.

        Thanks! We’re looking forward to getting this off to press with all the details squared away, and completely the “big five” of core books.

          Thank you so much for putting up with us until you hit this point! As someone who only learned about WoD in the last 5 years or so, these have been exactly what I needed to work out what the hell was going on in this world anyway.

          Just to be the nosiest of Nellies, now that the Big 5 are done, are we allowed to know if there are any distant rumblings about the Littles getting their day in the sun as well? Hunter and Demon especially would probably find modern audiences a lot more appreciative of their intricacies…

            With veeery few exceptions, our audience has been absolutely fantastic as we’ve made sure that these books are well designed and gorgeous. So no real putting up with to deal with. 🙂 As for new 20’s, that’s really up to White Wolf. We can’t make them without their OK.

      Thank you so much! I’ve let RichD know how pleased you and a lot of other backers are with his baby. Response has been just overwhelmingly positive, which is very satisfying after working on the project for so long.

    honestly, I really kinda dislike Aeon because I /like/ Aberrant and Aberrant’s main players make some really mind bogglingly stupid decisions(largest of which being the ‘chemically sterilize the cooperative supers because… reasons?’ idiot ball bit) more or less just because the setting /needs/ to have an apocalypse to set up Aeon.

      That was, of course, how it was with first edition. This reboot doesn’t need or intend to keep everything the same with the plot. And we have a built-in reason why a plot in one era doesn’t affect a different era as this is a Continuum, not just a series of historical eras on a single historical line.

        The Continuum concept is well used in the core, even if it makes me feel like the WW/Onyx Omniverse I’d been slowly chipping away at for the last two years is less unique.

    Really excited for the Scarred Lands community content, and great news for Pugmire too ^^

    I can’t help but notice however that the PF and 5E Ring of Spiragos have disappeared from the development status list (they were until now in the “Development” section). Is that a mistake or…?

      Ring of Spiragos is in proofing
