Outrageous Thrice-glorious Edition of the Exalted Technique! [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

Ex3 Cover

Last week, we put Exalted 3rd Edition on sale!

(I know, I know: “Finally!”)

Truth though, it was a long time coming. No one can deny that. Thanks to all of you who stuck with us as we wrestled this mammoth project into being.

And as the number of sales are showing, I have a lot of dedicated Exalted fans to thank!

So: Thanks Again, folks!

For all of you, it’s the actual game you can play, and talk about again. For John Morke and Holden Shearer and their writing team, it is the actual book that they have labored over these several years available for everybody to get, read, and play. The start of their edition of Exalted.

For Onyx Path, it is the third section of our drive to revitalize the old White Wolf game lines finally happening. Right on the edge of my original 5-Year Plan, but happening nevertheless! Phew! We are just so very happy the book has been received so very well. I feel like we are finally fulfilling the potential we committed to when Onyx Path was first created.

It’s a huuuge book, a gorgeous book! It brings back the mystery needed for adventure, and features systems that both enhance the thrill of combat and enable players to solve problems without a physical fight.

When Fast Eddy Webb and I sat down with Holden and John in New Orleans to talk with them about the next edition, we had no way of knowing that the project would go through the massive changes it did. We had no way of knowing about Kickstarter then and how EX3‘s would break and set records that would hold for years.

Hell, we had no way of knowing how intense the EX3 Kickstarter would be, or how complicated. None of our previous ones had exploded as EX3‘s did!

(I mean that in every sense of the word.)

That does bring up a downside to the Kickstarter experience I only just realized: I almost forgot that last Wednesday was the actual “this book is now real!” release, because I was so wrapped up in the steps to fulfill the rewards for our KS backers. I saw the PDF/PoD versions as a step towards getting the Deluxes created (which it is) and wasn’t mentally celebrating the release until I was messaged by a backer who was thrilled it was all happening.

“Well, duh.”

(I said)

“I am so smart, SMRT!”

Hence, all the lines I just wrote above.

Note to self: enjoy these moments, getting your core book into the community’s hands is one of the great payoffs of what we do. Thanks again, folks, for moments like that, they ain’t no fun without you.

While all the Exalted 3rd Edition hoopla has been hooping, we’ve been rolling along as you can see below. As we are creating, one of the exciting things we are hearing about is more and more folks playing our games and video posting their sessions, or streaming them live.

Continuing the EX3 theme, we have ExalTwitch streaming their games, and you really need to see the effort these folks have put in. Here are the ExalTwitch schedule/characters/info etc: http://exaltwitch.webs.com/

And their previous sessions: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiS0McnLDI6Q0PmHK9Z7W61UCjzx9HN2r

There is also an ongoing Roll20 plays Mage20 game happening, and here is their playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTj75n3v9eTkXCNzUSeNzeTi4unkvghuY

And finally, something we are still just amazed about!

The gang at the Geek & Sundry “spin-off” No Survivors will be playing Pugmire on May 16th! https://www.twitch.tv/geekandsundry

I was going to say more, but honestly, I’ve got to get back to compiling pitch ideas and setting up the Changeling 20th BackerKit and I want to get this blog out ASAP for folks wanting to see the very likely Pugmire Twitch session I mention above! See ya next week!

Children of the Unconquered Sun arise!

Exalted 3rd Edition in both PDF and PoD versions is now on sale at DriveThruRPG.com: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/162759/Exalted-3rd-Edition

This is your tale. This is Exalted. What legends will they tell of your deeds?

Exalted 3rd Edition depicts both a revitalized and expanded Creation, and the triumphant return of the Solar Exalted—but whether their rebirth will herald the salvation or destruction of the world, none can say. The system redesign takes the best parts of the previous editions and streamlines the mechanics for maximum playability.

EX3

Exalted 3rd Edition includes:

  • New Fiction – Read a new tale by original Exalted developer and author Geoff Grabowski.
  • New Artwork – See the Realm in a new light with stunning artwork by both new and classic Exalted artists working under the direction of Maria Cabardo.
  • Expanded Locales – Expand your campaigns with a detailed overview of the sprawling and decadent Second Age of Man. In addition to classic locales such as Chiaroscuro and Nexus, find many new locations not detailed in previous editions, from the treacherous intrigues of Port Calin to the proud warriors of the frigid plains and forests of Medo, held in check only by the iron hand of the Realm.
  • Intrigue and Mystery – Discover a revitalized Realm, still standing at the brink of civil war, but more dangerous than ever before; and the Lunar dominions which harry its borders, seeking redress for ancient crimes while pursuing modern ambitions.
  • Expanded Character Creation – Create and play Solar Exalted characters and compelling mortal heroes with more information and fleshed out details.
  • Combat System – Fight with a new cinematic combat engine, primed to deliver dynamic, exciting, and easily resolved battles between heroes, gods, and armies.
  • Charms – Explore a vibrant new Charm set encompassing both classic Solar powers from previous editions and all-new powers to shift the course of Creation.
  • …and much, much more!

Beware the Beast: the Primordial PDFs and PoDs NOW on sale at DTRPG.com! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/162443/Beast-The-Primordial

You are a Beast, and you must feed. Your Hunger drives you, and your Hunger might damn you. Indulge too lightly and your Horror will take matters into its own hands, roaming the Primordial Dream for sustenance and awakening murderous hatred in spiritually weak individuals. Feed too deeply and too often, and you become sluggish, sacrificing the raw edge of Hunger for the languor of Satiety.

    So… No chance for The Pack of Mage 2nd Edition on Wednesday?

    • richt
      April 25, 2016 at 8:17 pm

      Crazy things can happen, but I try and hint if I think there’s a chance and I didn’t hint about them.

  3. Octavo
    April 25, 2016 at 6:58 pm

    I see that Mage 2E is still at WWP for approvals. If they get it to you by tomorrow, is there any chance we’ll see it in the store on Wednesday, or should we just wait until the next Monday meeting before getting our hopes up?

    • richt
      April 25, 2016 at 8:18 pm

      Again, crazy things can happen, but that’d be highly unlikely.

      • Octavo
        April 25, 2016 at 8:25 pm

        Alas. Thank you for the kind response. I know y’all are as ready as we are for Mage to be in the store, makin’ money.

      No.

    You’ve got another Platinum-within-a-day book waiting in the wings, Rich. E’rybody wants the wizards.

    Out of curiosity, is there any particular reason OPP does releases only on Wednesdays? Is it a DriveThru thing, or some policy of the Path?

    • richt
      April 25, 2016 at 8:20 pm

      We decided to go live with new stuff the same day once a week so folks can be on the lookout every Weds. Seems to work pretty well.

    Question about Kickstarters.

    I backed at a level that offered a bonus reward Core PDF from another line. I asked for Mage (2nd Edition if that was possible as I underestimated how far it was from press), and I never as far as I can tell received a reward link for 1e instead.

    Just wondering if that means I’ll receive a link for Mage 2e when it is released or if that means the reward was voided at some point?

    Mostly just curious. 😛

    • richt
      April 25, 2016 at 8:21 pm

      My intention is to send you and other backers who pledged for Mage the 2nd edition PDF.

      • Raynn
        April 25, 2016 at 8:39 pm

        You sir have made my day, and thank you for your rapid reply.

        If I could bother you for one last question, will the backer pdf links go out on the wednesday it is available generally or before?

        It seems sometimes it is before, but I can see why it wouldn’t be here.

        Again, more curious than anything.

        Thanks again.

        • richt
          April 25, 2016 at 9:15 pm

          Depends on how things work out, but as close to each other as possible, Thanks!

        April 25, 2016 at 9:02 pm

        I’m guessing not, but will it go up for sale for rest of us at that time?

        • richt
          April 25, 2016 at 9:18 pm

          Regular Advance PDFs go up for sale on Wednesdays.

    April 25, 2016 at 7:23 pm

    ~I’m so excited~ ~And I just can’t hide it~

    I’m so ready for Ex3’s everything. Absolutely everything.

    WHEN IS THE (insert product here) COMING OUT?!?! I NEED MY FIX!!!

    • richt
      April 25, 2016 at 8:21 pm

      All the Exalted!

      • Andrew McGraw
        April 25, 2016 at 10:51 pm

        And Scion and Trinity too! I can’t forget about those! Oh man!

        Credit to your World/Chronicles of Darkness teams for getting me interested in anything horror-based at all, Rich, but Onyx Path’s lighter fare is where it’s at for me!

  8. Firanai
    April 25, 2016 at 7:24 pm

    Mage 2 still waiting for approval? Sigh, I suppose it was too much to ask to have it for this week. Perhaps the next one with a bit of luck.

    • richt
      April 25, 2016 at 8:22 pm

      I really hope so about next week.

  9. Tiresias
    April 25, 2016 at 7:31 pm

    Super-excited about the Ex3 Backer charms, even though my request was a bit messy because I completely misread one of the extant charms. >.<

    I'm still eagerly waiting for Mage 2nd as well.

    • richt

        *jumps out the window as it is the only thing that seems appropriate*

        All kidding aside, I will pay for the window. No worries. But, yeah. Holy Crap. Scion! 🙂

        Going to kickstarter no less! Cannot wait!

      • April 26, 2016 at 10:03 am

        So how close is the Scion KS? Specifically, is it likely to go up ahead of Philip Sandifer’s KS for his essay Neoreaction a Basilisk, which he expects will go live sometime next week?

        • richt
          April 26, 2016 at 5:26 pm

          After GenCon, more or less in September, is where we have the Scion 2nd KS currently slated. I prefer Philip’s Doctor Who and Alan Moore writings, just because I’m into the subject matter and his thoughts on it all, but I’ll be checking out his KS as well.

          • Yiodan
            April 27, 2016 at 7:25 pm

            KS in September, eh? Nice! that’s the month of my birthday.

            Gee, I don’t know what to say. Richt, i’m touched, you shouldn’t have.

            (Now, I have no moral or financial qualms about taking full advantage of that KS and once more take the pledge to be featured as model in the art :))

  12. Sleepwalker
    April 25, 2016 at 7:57 pm

    Wait, no chance of Mage 2nd in this week ?

    C’mon, why not release the pdf and do the changes after the community report of errors ?

    • Axel
      April 25, 2016 at 8:02 pm

      It’s at Paradox for approval, not correction. They’re going over the book to say “Yes, this is something we want the intellectual property associated with”.

      Which sucks, because I am jonesing.

      • richt
        April 25, 2016 at 8:24 pm

        You are correct, sir!

    • richt
      April 25, 2016 at 8:24 pm

      Not how it works.

      • Sleepwalker
        April 25, 2016 at 8:44 pm

        Okay, then why not share some new art of Mage 2nd ?

        I would like to see the Free Council art or another signature character art.

        Another option, you guys can show us the cover art or the work of Mike Chaney (like that screenshot of Order of Hermes from Mage 20).

        • richt
          April 25, 2016 at 9:17 pm

    What is the Changeling 20 backerkit? Sounds delicious.

    • richt
      April 25, 2016 at 9:21 pm

      BackerKit is the site/survey/service that we used with the Pugmire KS and it works so nicely that I’m using it for C20 as well. Easier Survey set up for me and our backers, plus you can upgrade your pledge and add-on more Add-ons. And non-backers can pre-order certain items as well. So, very handy.

      • Unsilent Majority
        April 25, 2016 at 9:45 pm

        Whoa. That actually sounds awesome.

        So, is it possible for me to order another C20 deluxe from backerkit?

        • richt
          April 25, 2016 at 9:54 pm

          Should be-

        I missed out on the C20 KS and I have a backerkit account. how do I get my premium edition?

        • richt
          April 25, 2016 at 11:05 pm

          You keep an eye on BackerKit until I get the C20 one created and it goes live.

    Any chance that we’ll see some previews of the W20 Kinfolk book anytime soon? I know publication is still down the road a bit, but I’d Love to see what’s in store for us.

    I haven’t had the chance to browse Ex3 yet myself, but I know people who did and everything they tell me is amazing. A huge and well deserved congratz to the team.

    My copy of EX3 just ate my second edition…. is that normal? (That poor second core book didn’t stand a chance!)

    Seriously though. Congratulations, and thank you, this book is wonderful!

      Perfectly normal. Nothing more to see here…move along…

    I’m glad to see Exalted do well. I have not yet bought it because i want to finish my “collection” of CofD Core books first (still lacking Beast and Demon to be up to date).

    I have a Question concerning the Monday Meeting Notes you put out recently about new projects and Ideas. I know that you have a form for submitting own writings. I have recently started on working on something for my own Vampire Chronicle and wanted to ask if it is a good time to refine it and to send you some parts of it (respecting the Guidlines and 500 Word “recommendation of course) or if an “new Idea” submitted that way be ignored for the forseeable future.

    Greetings
    Marc

      Our Open Call for writers is still active and we are always looking at new idea submissions, so I say go for it!

    Good to see Lore of the Bloodlines making progress, the long neglected bloodlines really need the love. Looking forward to it.

      Well, to be fair, we’ve only had the chance to take a run at them since V20.

    Why are there no derangements in CofD?

    • Eolirin
      April 26, 2016 at 8:15 am

      Because the derangements system has some very problematic implications with regard to the very real and serious issues of those suffering with mental illness and OPP values inclusivity.

      You can duplicate whatever you may need from that system by using persistent conditions.

    • The Cowardly Scion
      April 26, 2016 at 8:18 am

      The derangement system got replaced by conditions which now represent temporary states like being inspired or long term states like being traumatized. So like Blood and Bone and Masque and Dirge replacing Virtue and Vice in Requiem and Forsaken, it’s not really gone, just incorporated into a new system.

      What Eolirin and The Cowardly Scion said, basically.

    I am excitedly waiting for Mage and have never played Exalted, but I bought Exalted anyways because I am commited to buy as many books from OP as I can. Love you guys.

      Wow! You made my day. Thank you so very much! Hope you get inspired with Exalted!

    Exalted 3rd is everything you could ask for in a new edition. I have absolutely zero interest in 1st and 2nd edition now. I am never using that system again.
    This is why I love Onyx Path. It might take forever for a project to be finished, but hot damn do they deliver.

    • richt
      April 26, 2016 at 5:22 pm

      And while it may feel like forever at the time, the evidence of EX3’s existence means it’s not really forever after all. Which is a good thing 🙂

    Hi Rich,
    so excited for Black Hand! Any idea what the price would be for a printed book?

    • richt
      April 26, 2016 at 5:21 pm

      We assign prices as the PoD goes up for sale in order to stay on top of any price changes we might need to make. In general, you can look at a similar sized book in the 20th Anniversary lines and get a pretty accurate ballpark figure.

    Love the new EX3 edition cire! I hope you hurry and produce some more awesome stuff, I’ve got an idea for a super-cool Exigent or two that’s been rattling around the inside of my head since before Halloween!

    Not sure this is where to ask, but when you release Changeling 20, is there any plans to make or release PDF’s of the old changeling cantrip cards from 1st ed? Seems like I’m the only person who liked those, but I’ve been playing a game of Changeling with my kids, and would love to let them use the cards. Also, how easy will it be once C20 is released to transition mid-game to it? Will the cantrips, etc be changing? Other big rule changes in the works? I know you can’t tell us some things, just general guidance is fine :). Can’t wait for Changeling and Wraith!

    What’s the next Kickstarter we should expect? You mentioned the Scion KS is likely going to happen after Gencon (/barely_contained_excitement!). What about the Trinity KS? I know Ex3 just hit the shelves, but do you think the Dragonblooded KS will happen this year?

    • richt
      April 27, 2016 at 7:02 pm

      Don’t expect the Trinity Continuum this year, and Dragon Blooded is going to depend on the state of the text. Thanks!

    If you know when you’re doing the scion kick starter. Any ideas on the Deviant ks?

      Also after Gen Con in the fall.

    “EX3 Backer Charms – Finals in for WWP approval.”

    I thought Exalted was still published by OPP?

    • richt
      April 28, 2016 at 6:34 am

      As has been the case since Onyx Path started, we have licensed the White Wolf IPs of World of Darkness, Chronicles of Darkness, and Exalted from their owner. Up until last year, that owner was CCP and then those properties were bought by Paradox Interactive who recreated White Wolf Publishing. So we now send our projects for approvals to WWP.

    I just received my EX3 premium paper, and well, it´s thicker than the walls of my house LOL. The art is top of the top, really beautyful and vibrant images. I will start reading it as soon as I finish my work day. But yeah, really nice job
