Gonna Be Short Before Power Goes Out

So, Frankenstorm is here and kind of just raining right now, but we already got the call from the power company to expect loss of power for days into the end of the week. Crappy if that’s the case, but we’ll see. meanwhile, Eddy and I met and discussed his medical issues- still dizzy, going in for a check and antibiotics from the doctor- and Rescue Pug Show this weekend. I, on the other hand, raced against zombies at Run For Your Life in Maryland and emerged just barely alive- both from the zombies and how I feel today with the achys and the ouchys. Prepped for this storm all weekend and had lovely and excessive amounts of Fogo de Chao meat Sunday night at a family thing. Meanwhile, things continue apace with our books and projects- Eddy is getting us approvals on the W20 Comic by Bill and John Bridges (writer and artist respectively) and the NWO Convention Book. Again, we compared notes on systems and developers.

Looking at the schedule, there are a couple of things we need to change: we need a realistic release date for both Mummy the Curse and Exalted 3. Mummy I hope to have out this year in PDF/PoD form, EX3 has to be set in February if we hope to really give the new work John, Holden, and Geoff, are doing solid playtests and polish. I’m going to get the schedule on the OnyxPath website schedule altered to reflect these big changes as well as the slips we already have seen happen. Things are tightening up though, so that’s a good step.

- Silent Knife (VtR) and Left Handed Path (nMtA) have been uploaded to DTRPG for PoD approval this week. Waiting for PoD proofs…October still? Maybe if the storm doesn’t screw it up.

- Conventionbook: NWO (cMtA) is to CCP for approval.

- The God Machine Chronicle Fiction Anthology (nWoD) is in layout.

- God Machine Chronicle (nWoD) and Strix Chronicle Fiction Anthology (VtR) are getting written.

- Mummy the Curse is in layout proofing. Going to submit plans for the MtC Kickstarter to KS after a series of excellent chats with CA Suleiman.

- EX3 has an art bible and visual guide and is next on my list to dive into- I already know what stage the writing is at, but the graphics need to be getting a move on. Slated for Feb 2013 now.

- Justin says V20 Hunters Hunted 2 will head into Editing next week, and Anarchs Unbound is next on his slate as he sends out the outline to writers.

- Deluxe V20 Children of the Revolution in binding. The PDF and PoD versions went on sale last Friday at DriveThru RPG. If you didn’t get involved with the KS for this, now is your chance to pick up this beautiful and cool book. Justin and company went all out to present awesome characters, and the art is stunning.

- Deluxe Werewolf 20th Anniversary Edition¬† Kickstarter is in the last week of the Kickstarter and has been a massive success! Only three more days to pledge and get yiourself and all your friends copies. Pledge for the Heavy Metal Edition and get a book with a slab of metal on the cover punched through by Garou talons! A one of a kind collector’s item only available through this KS.

    So we’re going from this MONTH, to this YEAR, for Mummy? Yikes!

    I was going to ask if Mummy was going to be out this year. I wish you good luck on that front!

    Interest in the game might well be dwindling without a steady flow of spoilers and updates.

    Also, I hope Eddy will get better soon!

    Take care in the storm! Hope everyone comes through OK!

    Man, the White Howler Tribe Book and potential 8-page Comic is an AMAZING $300k and $315k stretch goal. Seriously. Massive kudos!

    Also, the soft-number on the Heavy Metal Edition is also fantastic news. Hopefully that will keep anyone from drawing out if they don’t think we’ll hit the 200 mark on the head.

    You may be solely responsible for revitalizing the RPG and accessory market after this KickStarter alone with all of the RPG books, novels, and materials being created. ;)

    I don’t suppose we can just get Mummy on DVRPG without a kickstarter? :p

      My concerns reflect JamesF’s concerns.

      I am pining for a Geist, Promethean, & Mummy chronicle.

      I wanna see how Masters of Used Souls, Seekers of New Souls, and Ancient Immortal Souls interact,

      Mummy, like W20, has already been written. The Kickstarter is just for the deluxe print edition. The regular PDF/Print version will be available on DriveThruRPG regardless of the outcome of the Kickstarter.

        I wish it would be available sooner rather than later, though.

    Excited that MtC is coming out this year!! I’ve decided no more KS’s for me until Mummy and Strix, those 2 will be where I pound my $$.

    Just wanna throw a kudos to your PR/sales folk for the brilliant sales campaign for Mummy: the Cursed you have coming up for the holidays.
    “Un-wrap your Mummy this Christmas!”
    Lol, just brilliant! Keep up the great work.
    Oh, and that money I have ear-marked for the KS, its just about burned a hole in my pocket.

    Word on when we could expect the Mummy Kickstart would be highly appreciated.

      Well, I’m not at WW so this is just speculation, but they were waiting on the W20 one to finish first. My guess is that they probably meant to do it next week, but the storm may push that back now.

    Just owndering if pushing back Ex3 means that the whole line moves back, or if the core and Arms of the Chosen would now be released in the same month

    Gotta say Werewolf was always near to my heart as my #3 Classic WoD game. I know that interest in prior games will help dictate further ones. I am a Wraith fanatic. I have almost every printed book for it and loved it to death /pun. As Such, bring on Mage20! I will pledge immediately just to help get it done in hopes I will see a Wraith20 and then possibly my #2, Changeling20.
