Hang Around, Thanks! [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

Let’s start serious and move towards our yearly Thanks blog at the end.

I’ve heard from a lot of you asking if the recent messages that White Wolf have posted on their social media are something that will be bad for Onyx Path. As of this writing, everything we’ve heard from over there is that it’s business as usual between our companies. We are still going to be sending projects over for approvals, they are still the ones who OK our pitches for new WW-IP projects, and we’re still running our successful Chicago By Night KS, the first licensed V5 TTRPG supplement.

So fear not, True Believers!

I mean, I just had to channel Stan Lee there, after last week’s MMN blog.

Which was, oddly enough, the least commented-on blog I think I’ve ever posted. Very strange, but I’m just assuming you were all in mourning for Stan, too.

In case you missed it last week, here is the lovely graphic our own Impish Ian Watson made to show what game lines are wholly Onyx Path‘s, the ones at the top, and which are licensed from whom:

I actually didn’t think we’d need it again so soon, but there does seem to be a fair bit of confusion out there, so feel free to point to this if you need to explain things to a friend.

And that’s one of the awesome Chicago By Night full-page pieces up there at the top, illustrated by the amazing Michael Gaydos. More Chicago Kickstarter news – we’re headed into the last week! – down below in The Blurbs!

 

 

Trinity Continuum: Aeon art by Sam White

 

 

A bit of related news:

One of the first times I ever heard of Matthew Dawkins, who is our Chicago By Night developer, was when he interviewed me for his YouTube channel a whole bunch of years ago. From then, his Gentlemam Gamer videos have taken deep dives into many of the White Wolf (and other) games, and were very helpful in explaining aspects of V5 during this last year.

Now, Matthew has agreed to create a series of Gentleman Gamer videos for our Onyx Path games starting with the pantheons in Scion 2nd Edition, and you’ll also be seeing Matthew in other ways too, as he helps ramp up our online gaming presence. More on that in the weeks to come!

BUT DON’T WORRY, his dulcet tones are still going to be appearing weekly on the Onyx Pathcast – which this coming Friday features Dixie interviewing Jacqueline “Jax” Bryk with a one-on-one covering not just her work with us, but throughout the TTRPG biz, and how she has become one of our industries leading lights for safe play game writing.

And now, the thanks!

Let’s start with the newest member of our Monday Meeting team, Dixie Cochran:

  • I am thankful that the whole Onyx Path team gave me the opportunity to work on these books in a greater capacity this year. I am thankful that Eddy, Matthew, and Rich are always supportive and willing to answer my many questions, and that Rose Bailey recommended me for this job as she moved on to a new stage in her career. I am thankful for all of my amazing Chronicles of Darkness and Exalted developers, writers, and fans, who continue to do amazing work and be a wonderful community. I am also thankful for lovely editors and indexers, Word’s “track changes” function, and Oxford commas.

From the art and layout side of things, there are these points from Mirthful Mike Chaney, in no particular order he tells me:

  • Thankful our first Storypath IPs are really close to being done and ready to release.
  • Thankful our non WW stuff has been continually well received…
  • Thankful that Wraith 20 is almost done… and Scion
  • Thankful my wife is still as into 40k as I am… now if I could only get her into D&D 5e.
  • Thankful that the midterms weren’t an utter shitshow.
  • Thankful that I still get to work with all of you and still get to make game books after all these years. 

Our marketing guru and developer/writer extraordinaire Monica Valentinelli shares these thoughts:

  • I’d like to thank fans for their continued support and enthusiasm. People are really excited for the games we make, and that’s the reason why I do what I do.

Here’s Eddy Webb, with his thanks:

  • I continue to be thankful for all of the fans of Realms of Pugmire.
  • I am thankful that Monarchies of Mau is shipping (and ahead of schedule!)
  • I am thankful to find so many people who are really excited about our upcoming Storypath games like Scion, Trinity Continuum, They Came From Beneath The Sea!, and Dystopia Rising: Evolution.
  • And I am thankful that there are still people who love and support Onyx Path Publishing.

Mighty Matt McElroy takes a long sip of coffee and sez:

  • I want thank everyone who has had the time and energy to introduce an
    Onyx Path game to someone new. Whether that is inviting someone to
    join your gaming group or running a demo at a convention, this past
    year has been an amazing opportunity to meet new gamers around the
    world.

Our behind-the-scenes keeper of the flame, LisaT has these thanks to share with all of you:

  • I am thankful again this year for the opportunity to work with so many talented and creative people. And this year I had the opportunity to meet a number of them face to face along with many fans of our products. I’m looking forward to meeting even more of you at PAX Unplugged in Philadelphia in just a couple of weeks. So if you’re in town stop by and become part of what I’m thankful for for next year!

Impish Ian Watson, lord of Bloodlines modding, also does some other stuff he has thanks about:

  • I’m thankful that, after years toiling in the word mines, the Trinity Continuum and Æon are almost done, and we’ve done a significant chunk of the next two supplements, plus Aberrant. I can’t wait for people to see the fruits of our labours.
  • I’m thankful to Trinity‘s Kickstarter backers for having faith in us.

Let’s see what sort of thanks Mr. Dawkins has to share:

  • Yo Gentlemaniacs, it’s Thanksgiving night, and this is the happiest time of year for all the maniacs, brother! You know, me and all my little Gentsters, we got a lot of things to be thankful for. Number one: we’re thankful for being happy and very healthy. We’re thankful for having time to share with our loved ones. We’re also thankful that Gentlemania is still the strongest force in the universe. And after the turkey’s done, after the blessings are all done, I can tell you what the Gentleman is mostly happy about: it’s SURVIVOR SERIES TIME! And I’m thankful for my team of Gentlemaniacs!!
  • That, and Onyx Path are pretty cool.

Uhhhhh. He may be cracking under the pressure. Hard to say.

From me:

  • I sometimes sit at my desk, stunned by the realization that I still get to do this after all these years and I’m thankful for that – a lot! Thanks to our creative freelancers who continue to find delightful new ways to verbally and visually describe our game worlds, and our full-time folks who orchestrate all this rampant creativity into the formats and pages that we all love to read and play. Thanks to all of our associated partner companies that give us the reach to deliver and communicate this thing we do to all of you!
  • Which, of course, actually brings me to all of you and all of our community who have supported us through our growing pains, lo! these many years, and even through pains not of our choosing! Without this intricate eco-system that includes all of us and all of you, we just would not have been able to keep building all our game lines and worlds!
  • Thank you.

Many Worlds, One Path!

 

BLURBS!

KICKSTARTER:

Lo the darkness that lies like a pall over Chicago.

The V5 Chicago By Night Kickstarter has passed 200% funding and continues to knock through Stretch Goals like the El through a sleet storm! Congrats to the whole team and all our backers, as we continue to build the Chicago Folio with Cam, Anarchs, and Independent sections and the Let The Streets Run Red Chronicle Collection, as well as activate additional projects too!

We’d be thrilled if you’d give it a look here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/chicago-by-night-for-vampire-the-masquerade-5th-ed/description

And here is a Q&A Matthew and several of his writing team held on his Gentleman Gamer YouTube channel that goes into a lot of their thinking about Chicago By Night and then they answer questions from the chat: https://youtu.be/v8YbbzEPuiI

 

Next up, we’re working on the Kickstarter for They Came From Beneath the Sea! (TCFBtS!), which has some very different additions to the Storypath mechanics we’ll be explaining during the KS.  They take an excellent 50’s action and investigation genre game and turn it to 11! Our current plan is to start on Dec 18th but run it extra long into January!

 

ELECTRONIC GAMING:

TODAY’S REASON TO CELEBRATE: 

Thanksgiving! Not necessarily the “school” holiday of pilgrims and first winters and all that, but the holiday of togetherness and actually looking at how things are in your life and being glad (thankful) for the good parts and the parts that you learned from. And MST3K new season dropping on Turkey Day!

    How the heck is Aberrant all the way to manuscript approval!? I’m really excited about that one since that was the first RPG I ever GM’ed way back in 2008.

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 2:05 pm

      Hard work, mostly!

  2. November 19, 2018 at 10:38 pm

    I see the Scion Companion, Jumpstart, and Ready Made Characters in the work queue. I think the only item not up there yet is the Bestiary.

    Is the current plan to finish the “Hero-tier” books before moving onto the Demigod KS or will we see the Demigod KS “soon”? On a related note, are their any non-KS-related Scion books planned?

    • November 20, 2018 at 8:30 am

      We’ll be announcing our future Scion plans soon. I will say at this point that the plan doesn’t involve waiting for one set of books to be done before starting another set, and we have a LOT more planned. Stay tuned!

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 2:05 pm

      As Eddy noted…OH YES. We have many the plans for Scion 2nd.

    Thanks for everything guys. You guys still keep being you and not only keep continue writing books but continue to keep on getting better at writing said books. For that you guys are awesome. In any case excited to Across finally on the board. Also surprised to see that Matthew is gonna be making a video series, especially to see them going through the Scion pantheons. Well have to say that definitely sounds interesting. If I can offer any advice on it that be just make sure to study up, Scion has been plenty good on that department so it should be good, I’m sure Matthew will be fine(Blind Faith)

    Jk but really interested to see more from you guys.

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 2:03 pm

      Do we have Blind Faith as a Condition in Storypath? We might need to add it 🙂

      Thanks!

    I read it correctly that Monarchies of Mau is to be put as PDF on sale in next week? :O

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 2:02 pm

      Assuming nothing goes weird, Monarchies of Mau will go live on DTRPG in PDF and physical book PoD forms next Wednesday (the 27th). The traditionally printed versions we did the Kickstarter for will join Pugmire as available at Studio2 and Indie Press Revolution soon after!

  5. November 19, 2018 at 11:03 pm

    Thank you all for making great games that we are glad and proud to share with other gamers.

    And we’re thankful that we got to help out the Wreaking Crew demo Onyx Path games at the last five Gen Cons. That’s been a real big deal to us.

    Happy Thanksgiving to the Onyx team.

      Thanks to you and your team for all the hard work and hard gaming! We love it when we’re at a con and we have folks coming to the booth telling us how much fun they’ve had at the demo tables all through the day.

    Canadian Thanksgiving was a solid month ago, but I’ve still got something in mind to piggyback on the thankfulness.

    I’m thankful that Onyx Path is out there, creating games that have just as much meaning as Promethean did for me when I first read it while I was in a dark, dark place a long time ago.

    I’m thankful that Chronicles and Scion continue to be enthusiastically inclusive and celebrate different people, cultures, and times.

    And I’m thankful to have been able to able to contribute to these legacies in my own small way as a freelancer. It has been a wild year, but it has definitely changed me for the better. It may not be obvious to anyone but me, but the experience of writing creates feedback for my job as a high school teacher. I can see the ways that freelancing for OPP has and will prove invaluable for my students. That’s pretty powerful and it will have a long-term positive effect. I’m extraordinarily thankful for it and my students are too (even if they aren’t aware of it).

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 1:57 pm

      Thanks for your thoughts (and your contributions!), and for noting that we try and make our game worlds accessible to all. The proof is in the reading of them.

      November 20, 2018 at 12:01 am

      Yes, but when we’ve finished putting it together, Rich still needs to give it his thumbs up. It’s internal rather than external, but it still needs the boss’s approval.

        November 20, 2018 at 1:13 am

        If the recent events at White Wolf/Paradox show nothing else, it is the importance of brand image and staying on message.

        Keep up the incredible work folks!

        • November 20, 2018 at 8:31 am

          Well, more that Rich owns it, and he has to like it. 🙂

        • richt
          November 20, 2018 at 1:55 pm

          Yep, it is a tough thing to communicate if you are tied to an existing fan-base community. We’ve had several phases in Onyx’s seven years, from counteracting the “White Wolf Is Dead!” meme when we started, to “Who IS Onyx Path Anyway?” for a bunch of years, to our current “Many Worlds, One Path” motto that’s designed to talk about our exciting variety of game worlds. Through all of them, we were challenged by the lack of any real central communications hub that speaks to most of our community – what we have now was built out of a variety of venues including this site, and we still find that we have to keep pushing into new venues to get folks our news. The corporate changes certainly didn’t help that for us, and I don’t think it was easy for WW. Their business intentions have been pretty consistent, but the message wasn’t clearly sent nor received, with more members of our community than you’d think expecting that they were the same WW as the original, with all of the same intentions and creative direction. That’s a big hill to clamber over, communication of brand identity-wise.

    • perverseness
      November 20, 2018 at 12:05 am

      Maybe lead on book still has to run it by Rich??

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 1:45 pm

      Since we have that phase as part of our project process, we just thought we’d include my usual review in that slot, rather than me doing it “sort-of as part of the process”.

    November 20, 2018 at 1:14 am

    The announcement from White Wolf – and the email from Mophidius about delays in shipping the physical V5 books – did allow for some discussion about licensing connections. I saw that chart on one of your social media outlets, so I’d already used it! Seriously, I’m filled with hope that the “new direction” of White Wolf will be good for all of us. I’m thankful that all y’all at Onyx Path are doing the rad work you’re doing, all around!

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 1:43 pm

      Awesome- glad to hear it has already been useful. We thought a visual might help more than our written explanations seem to have so far! Thank you for all of your support!

    Excited for Changeling the Lost 2e to hit the printer! 🙂 Was a Truth and Lies textbook added in the final proof of the Intro?

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 1:41 pm

      Oh yes, it’s printing away at this point! Not sure what you’re asking about the final proof, though.

      • Robert D
        November 21, 2018 at 3:41 pm

        Sorry for the confusion in my previous post.
        I was referring to the Truth and Lies box that is in the Intro chapter of the previous Chronicles of Darkness books (Ex: True or False: Prometheans are Undead: False, the are living beings usually made from dead tissue). I was looking at the backer preview of CtL2e the other day and didn’t see one in the Intro chapter and was curious whether or not one was added in the final edits.

    I’m thankful for Onyx Path, Stewart Wieck, and everyone involved for reviving the Scarred Lands and continuing the setting, hopefully with new books coming next, but also with the Slarecian Vault program. And, I can’t be thankful enough to Stewart and Scott (Holden) for giving me the opportunity to write in the Player’s Guide.

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 1:40 pm

      Thanks for your contributions, and yes, we are really serious about bringing the Scarred Lands to present-day gamers and appreciate everybody like yourself who gets the word out that it is happening!

  11. November 20, 2018 at 7:51 am

    I’m thankful to the Onyx Path for carrying the torch and continuing to make the games that brought me together with most of my longest friends. I’m thankful to Rich for offering to line up interviews for the Story Told; the podcast would not be as excellent without the creative folks who are willing to share their time.

    • richt

      November 20, 2018 at 1:06 pm

      I have promised it to Eddy by mid-January at the latest, so it’s not so bad. I had to take some time and concentrate on a few older projects that fell into my lap, but it’s definitely happening soon!

    • richt
      November 20, 2018 at 1:36 pm

      Saying something like that isn’t saying that the project isn’t important, it is saying that Dixie, or any of our team who is keeping on top of multiple projects, has made a strategic decision, based on the current status of all of their projects, to work on them in the sequence that looks to deliver the best result.

    So… what’s the chances that I’ll have physical copies of Scion and Trinity in my grubby hands in say, the next six months?

      In case you weren’t aware, we don’t do release estimates.

        I know. I was just hoping for a little hint.

    Looking forward to PAX Unplugged! Which of your smiling faces will I be greeted by at your booth?

      Well, we may not always be smiling, but I believe we’ll have Rich, Lisa, Matt McElroy, me, Dixie, and Bill Bodden.

    The art for Chicago V5 looks absolutely amazing. You rock.

    I am exceptionally happy to see that the meat is still in the grinder, the sausage is still being made. After seeing the WW announcement, I was very concerned.

    On a brighter note, I received my copy of MoM today (scheduled for Friday arrival)! Not chance to look through it yet, but ICANHASCHEEZEBURGER! …er well, you know.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all who celebrate, happy long weekend to those that don’t, and happy gaming to all!

    As with others on here, very thankful for you lot at the Path and the work you’re doing. I do not have words for how excited I am for the new Aeon Continuum properties and upcoming Scion 2nd. The closest I’m likely to get to articulating it is a noise that just bothers the local dogs. 😉 I wish all the best for you and your families, and look forward to walking the Onyx Path to new stories with you this next year.

      Thanks! Although we prefer the term “Trinity Continuum: Aeon” over “Aeon Continuum.” 🙂

    Well, it’s still Thanksgiving in some parts of the US, so I’ll pitch in my bit. :> I’m thankful to Onyx Path for giving me the chance to form some really close friendships with my gaming group through their games, and giving me probably the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had.
