Demigod, Semi-done! [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

At this writing, the Scion: Demigod 2e Kickstarter is almost at the half-way point and we’re over 300% funded and have over 1700 backers. Not bad at all for half-way! Of course, we’re also in the slow-down period for a bit coming up, so keep an eye out for the previews, actual plays, and interviews we have scheduled to keep everyone entertained until pledging picks up again!

Fun fact: the joint Kickstarter for Scion: Origin and Scion: Hero launched in September, 2016 – four years ago!

Also, as of this writing, we have attained Stretch Goals including unlocking the Reference Screen, KS backer exclusive T Shirt discount, and are building up the Scion: Demigod Companion with sections on new Boons, creatures, Guides, and followers – and are headed towards the next goal of a section on Solo Play!

Stretch Goals are something we continue to tinker with, and we’ve found that doing an overflow book like many of the Companions is really ideal. Backers get access to even more info about the game they pledged for, and we can create goal thresholds that are chapter-sized and therefore priced to such amounts that are achievable more quickly. Which makes the fun of surpassing an amount and achieving a Stretch Goal regular things backers can look forward to.

But we still also look at other possible goals if the KS can support them with the pledges. Pay bumps for creators is a personal favorite of mine, and some of our crew like Jumpstarts or Fiction, too. And sometimes ideas for Stretch Goal rewards come at us from backers or other sources. We’re always open to hearing ideas.

What we do try to stay away from these days are Stretch Goal rewards that involve adding new material to the book being KS’d, as we’ve seen that derail getting that main reward out to backers by months and months. I’m also extremely leery of rewards that involve working with another company, at this point. It’s a question of expectation by our backers.

We pretty much always phrase the reward to say that the reward means that we’ll work with the other company to create whatever it is they are creating. Then we do that, and after we do, the company, for all sorts of reasons, doesn’t deliver. We did our part, but folks feel like they simply didn’t get the reward that they were looking forward to. We don’t want that to be anybody’s takeaway from one of our KSs, so I’m avoiding those sorts of rewards for now.

Just today, we received word that Paradox is good with the preview of the WoD Ghost Hunters Kickstarter we sent over, so that’ll be our next one! This is for the 20th Anniversary WoD books, so expect a cool Deluxe book all about investigating the paranormal in the World of Darkness. This book would go with the V20, W20, M20, C20, and especially the Wraith20 game lines.

Some Things We Discussed at the Meeting Today:

(For what it’s worth as an inside look at the meeting, most of the topics I usually put here as having been discussed during the meeting come from the first part of the meeting where general company issues are brought up and discussed. After that we review the status of the projects that fall under each in-house developer’s supervision and note any concerns based on how the in-house devs have seen things happen with their projects all last week.)

We discussed some Covid-19 repercussions, which are ongoing, including our relationship with Paradox and the WW IPs as Paradox was also slammed by the situations around Covid. Approvals seem to be back on track, at least.

We are still trying to help our printers deliver the various projects that need to get shipped out to KS backers, but we are seeing several of our KS ship outs being dragged out. Don’t worry, James will certainly let backers know if any of these challenges causes us to miss any estimated dates.

In terms of our creators, we have been trying to help everyone keep working on our projects and get through all these upheavals, We had thankfully very few freelances diagnosed with Covid-19, but even if an individual wasn’t themselves affected, we have folks whose friends and relatives were, and people just ground down by it all.

It’s very hard to put all that aside and work out compelling writing and get it on the page. Very few writers write in an iron tower that shuts out the real world. In fact, I’d say that creators need input to have creative output, and if all the input is fraught with existential despair and peril then they are going to have a really hard time turning that into some words about a made-up game world.

Some folks can do just that – their creative output is what they use to block the nastiness of the real world out. Most others, though, and I mean most, have needed a helping hand here and there during all this. Some bailed on assignments, some worked with their devs, and some devs also had issues and worked with our in-house devs.

We did big meetings to talk through things like our “Town Halls” – we have another scheduled for early October – and we had design and productivity meetings and courses by folks like Eddy and Danielle. We hoped these helped, and we’ve seen a lot of our freelancers respond positively to these efforts, so….

Finally, we talked about the latest sale over at Indie Press RevolutionIPR – our sales partners that handle our Deluxe Kickstarter press overruns. And much, much, more, actually! This month we have a sale on Exalted 3rd Edition. The big book itself!

The EX3 sale is now live at IPR:https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/Deals-and-Specials/

And tomorrow morning around 9am CST the Scarred Lands Players Guide PDF will be free for 24 hrs:https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/197803/Scarred-Lands-Players-Guide-OGL-5e

Virtual TableTop!

Introducing a Virtual Tabletop adventure: the Gauntlet of Spiragos for Scarred Lands on Astral TableTop!

Scars of the Divine War, which ended less than 200 years ago, have still not healed. One such scar is the Chasm of Flies, a rent in the earth created when the titan Spiragos the Ambusher was smote down by one of the young gods, Vangal the Ravager. 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.

Gauntlet of Spiragos is a Scarred Lands adventure designed for 1st level characters, although it can be easily modified for characters of up to 5th level.

Astral TableTop is the easiest way to play any tabletop RPG online, free. Astral already supports popular systems like D&D and Pathfinder, and Astral can support virtually any tabletop roleplaying game. Get started quickly with built-in support for most popular game systems. Whether you’re brand new to TTRPGs or a veteran tabletop gamer, Astral‘s ease-of-use and built in automation is designed to streamline gameplay.

On Sale This Week!

This Wednesday we are blasting off and landing back on good old Terra Firma for Trinity Continuum: Aeon! Check out the Advance PDF on DTRPG!

Terra Firma expands the setting of Trinity Continuum: Æon by revealing some of the many wonders and secrets found on Earth and Luna, while also providing Storytellers with the material they require to set exciting campaigns on either of these two worlds. 

Terra Firma requires both the Trinity Continuum Core Rulebook and Trinity Continuum: Æon to play. Inside, you will find:

• Further information about 10 nations previously discussed in Trinity Continuum: Æon, including a detailed look at an important city in each nations. 

• Details on threats facing Earth, including revolutionary movements, dangerous cults, and criminal gangs.

• An exploration of some of the strange, and often deadly, mysteries found on Earth and Luna — from the ancient and terrible Gorgon Karst caves beneath eastern Europe to the bizarre Hadley Rille Anomaly on Luna. 

• New technologies used on Earth, examples of the many strange and powerful relics of the Nova Age, as well as new Edges and Paths specifically for the inhabitants of Earth and Luna.


Conventions!

Though dates for physical conventions are subject to change due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, here’s what’s left of our current list of upcoming conventions (and really, we’re just waiting for this last one to be cancelled even though it’s Nov/Dec). Instead, keep an eye out here for more virtual conventions we’re going to be involved with:

PAX Unplugged: https://unplugged.paxsite.com/

We’re still waiting on word for this one, as a TTRPG publisher we weren’t included in the companies contacted for PAX‘s virtual con replacing their usual electronic gaming con(s).

V20 led to renewed interest in TTRPGs at WW, which led to Eddy and I doing those in-house, which led to me thinking I could be happy with my own TTRPG company, which led to Onyx Path Publishing!

    Terra Firma is here!
    Nice one!
    Scion KS is being great, the manuscript so far is sweet like candy, and we didn’t get to my favorite part (Rules *shaking hands on anxiety for tomorrow*)
    V30! It’s about time! Joking, it would kill Eddy.

      Glad you’re liking the Scion: Demigod KS so far, and here’s hoping you liked today’s update. As for anything VtM that’s not V5, I’m doubting paradox will be OK with yet another version of Vampire! 😛

      Kind of appropriate….

      Glad to see I’m not the only one who let out a gasp and whispered “Arthur” upon seeing that.

    Yay for Demigod being that little bit more special! Y’know, more than being a literal half-divine entity already is.

    Also yay for Ghost Hunters! Is the book going to have some mechanical content like with the BJD, or just straight-up fiction? I’ll be in either way!

    • richt
      September 15, 2020 at 10:42 am

      Ghost Hunters is a game book, so a mix of setting and mechanics with a smattering of fiction. Thanks!

    Whew, this page gets longer every month 😛

    Super glad to finally see some Chronicles stuff, we were worried it was all being abandoned. Tome of the Pentacle should really please all the mage fans and those freshly interested in mage.

    Is there any type of goal you guys are looking at for CofD books? I note everyone seems to be getting a Night Horrors, but are things focused on players/st’s (with Player/St Guide books)? Or do you take any old pitch providing it looks like it’s got legs?

    • richt
      September 15, 2020 at 10:41 am

      We have been filling in the lines with Night Horrors and various projects coming out of the KS campaigns internally, but pitches for all sorts of projects are always appreciated. Using the submission process, of course. Thanks!

    I feel as if will never see Let the Streets run red be done, but then again one has to think about the amount of people that are involved, not only at Onyx and how they have been affected by Covid.

    Then one can look at all the projects that you have in the air and are editing, proofing, re-reading for the Xth time. And I must say that I am amazed by your dedication and despite the status of the world – you continue to publish so many good games for us, over and over again.

        *fingers crossed* I hope you get LET THE STREETS RUN RED to White Wolf this week. If not, well, then hopefully next week. You know I’ve been waiting on this one.

        I’m sorry also to hear you have had so much trouble with establishing communication and shipping lines but really it’s impressive how much you’ve done despite it all. Bravo to you all.

    • richt
      September 15, 2020 at 10:36 am

      That’s in Paradox’s hands decision-wise. Not our call to make as they own the IPs.

    • Ian A. A. Watson
      September 15, 2020 at 2:26 pm

      As a sourcebook for VTM, any new KotE material would almost certainly be for V5 rather than a 20th anniversary thing.

    Ghost Hunters would be perfect for October.

    So Terra Firma being released sounds awesome. Totally going to go and buy the physical copy of that book when it comes out.

    (Random question but is that something someone who backed the Kickstarter would get in pdf? I mean I don’t truly care gonna buy it anyway but was wondering, lol.)

    I keep looking and hoping for further updates on the Trinity Continuum: Adventure! core. I really really hope to see that kickstarted or something this year. I want my Adventure! fix.

    (Basically I have many ideas for what I think would be perfect campaign ideas for the power level that I assume Adventure! covers and so want the rules.)

    Anyway, good update. Thanks for it.

    • Ian A. A. Watson
      September 15, 2020 at 2:29 pm

      No, the Kickstarter rewards are done, aside from the Dawn and Meridian novellas.

  10. September 15, 2020 at 5:36 pm

    Glad to see another Scion 2e book in the pipeline and also some good news about Ghost Hunters.

    As for reward ideas, I liked the Exalted soundtracks and some similarly epic music for Scion seems appropriate (though that might require working with a third-party which you said you’re avoiding at this point in time). Cards similar to the Condition cards for CofD and the recent magic item cards for Scarred Lands are also always a must-have for me.

    • richt
      September 20, 2020 at 10:25 pm

      I really loved the Ex3 Music Suites. The composer worked incredibly hard to capture the right sound for the Exalted world and did a beautiful job. But like many projects where we are working with creators not in our game-making pipeline, we had to work with him when he had breaks in his schedule, so the process was a tough one for him and the time it took was tough on us. End result is sweet, but it’d take a very different licensing deal for us to do more of them – maybe not tying it to a KS, for example. 🙂

      Glad you like the cards – they aren’t hot sellers but they are just so very useful in play!
