Land Ho! [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

We have sailed the Acid Sea and now know land is near – and with it all the fun a pirate could desire at Waterdog Port! Yarrrrr!

In other words, Pirate of Pugmire‘s Kickstarter has passed its funding goal, and now we’re headed towards some sweet Stretch Goals. Thanks to everyone who pledged so that we can get this companion volume to Pugmire and Monarchies of Mau printed and out into stores!

And if you haven’t yet had a chance to pledge, there are still a few awesome reward tiers left – some of which include having your pet illustrated as a pirate! – and the KS runs until Thursday. There’s a link below in the Blurbs! section for your convenience!

Leading in to our next Kickstarter campaign, today we were thrilled to reveal that we will be posting a Trinity Continuum: Aberrant webcomic starting tomorrow, Tuesday the 18th, here on the Onyx Path website!

The webcomic will run every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for about six weeks, coinciding with the TC: Aberrant Kickstarter starting the first week in July.

We had the extreme pleasure of working with comic book writer extraordinaire Paul Jenkins, who has written so many amazing works for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, including winning an Eisner award for writing the Inhumans for Marvel Knights, that we’ll let you all Google him rather than trying to list them all.

We’ll have more info on Paul, as well as awesome artist Doug Stambaugh, in the weeks to come as “You Are Not Alone.” rolls out. This is our very first webcomic, we are incredibly excited about it, and we hope it won’t be our last, and is designed to give a taste to new and long-time Aberrant fans of just what the world of Trinity Continuum: Aberrant is like.

Another announcement for today is that we’re incredibly happy to be working with the multi-talented Travis Legge as he leads the development of our upcoming Scarred Lands projects. Travis has already sat in with Eddy, Matt, and myself, as we whipped project ideas into a schedule, and now he’ll be pulling those ideas into actual books.

This doesn’t change how we’re handling the new Scarred Lands Creature Collection with our friend Jon Hodgson’s new company, Handiwork Games, and I actually was able to talk with Jon at UK Games Expo and we firmed up plans for the upcoming Kickstarter Jon will be running for the book. Expect amazing art, fantastic layout and usability, and the chance to pick Reward Tiers that allow backers to determine additional monsters to include in the book beyond those already planned.

We also talked with Chris and Matt from Modiphius while at UKGE about our ongoing Vampire 5th Edition projects. Everyone was excited at being able to work closely together on new V5 books – and that was before the recent Origins Award for Best RPG of the Year! Congrats to all involved!

Finally, for anyone who is thinking that every third word I write is Kickstarter, look below at what we have going on sale this week: the Advance PDFs of both the Blood Sea: Crimson Abyss for Scarred Lands, and the long, long, long-awaited Signs of Sorcery for Mage: The Awakening 2e! Neither of which had a KS, so there!

Regardless of how we get there, we’re:

Many Worlds, One Path!

BLURBS!

    I didn’t see the interview with Klara on the Onyx Path podcast listing.

    Also, where can we find the interview with Matthew and Chris about upcoming vampire projects?

      “This Friday’s Onyx Pathcast features an interview with fantastic writer Klara Herbol!” Emphasis mine. I have no idea what interview with Matthew and Chris you’re talking about, sorry.

        Gotcha!

        Sorry, I confused this:

        “We also talked with Chris and Matt from Modiphius while at UKGE about our ongoing Vampire 5th Edition projects. Everyone was excited at being able to work closely together on new V5 books – and that was before the recent Origins Award for Best RPG of the Year! Congrats to all involved!”

          Yeah, that’s a reference to a business meeting, not a Pathcast interview. 🙂

    Wow, you guys, releasing Signs of Sorcery on my birthday? How thoughtful! I couldn’t ask for a better gift. ;>

      Well we all remember how endearing she was.

        That implies that whining every month is not actually well-liked!

        Shocking.

        But no, I’m of course happy to wait and you guys are really going through things quickly, I just like to tease.

    Genuinely looking foward to Aberrant. I have recently had the pleasure of reading through both core books of the second edition and I am looking forward to reading a third.

    Having never had the chance the play in the continuum, I am also looking forward to the webcomic immensely as a great way to immerse myself in this setting and get to know it better.

    Thanks a lot to the team for a fantastic game and a great bold new idea in the form of this web comic.
