Strange Aeons [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

Yep, we’re at that strange part of the Trinity Continuum: Aeon Kickstarter, the part where things kind of plod along with a pledge here and there. (So I’ve included this new art above to kind of be the totem of shaking things up and making some action happen!) Amazingly, it took us until three-quarters of the way through to plateau for a bit. We’ve had KSs that plateaued three days after they started!

So now’s the time to tell all your friends if you’re a backer, and to take another look at the KS if you haven’t backed yet. Please, if you have time, post in social media so word gets out. In particular, if you know somebody that was a fan of Trinity back in the day, they may not be up on who is publishing what, or that this Kickstarter is even happening to bring back the game.

We always have folks coming to us after a KS wanting to know if they could still pledge because they missed hearing about it while it was running. If we can get word out to them now, they can get in on the fun and the extra goodies. Because while we now have BackerKit for post-Kickstarter activities, it’s not exactly really pledging during the KS.

Let me back up a tad.

When we first started doing Kickstarters, which I think was six years ago last week, there was just the bare bones of usability. It was the creators of the Kickstarters that added in “Add-ons” and “Stretch Goals” (and a bunch of other things), so when it came to knowing who had added on what, we all came up with improvised systems. Even Reward Tier rewards were, and continue to be, delivered one Reward Tier at a time by messaging that Tier. And then the next, etc.

Now, if you look at some of our Kickstarters, I put in anywhere between a dozen and two dozen Reward Tiers, because we were having fun and had a lot of wacky ideas we wanted to share with potential backers. It could take me a day to go through all those Reward Tiers, and then go through all the pledges individually to find out those who had added on the reward, and send out the links for just that one reward.

So, obviously, a bunch of folks saw opportunity in my misery, and what they call “Back-End Services for Kickstarter” became a thing. (Of course, I’m certainly not the only KS Creator who was grinding their teeth at the methodology, and a lot of folks had much more complicated reward set-ups).

BackerKit was one of these back-end services that I heard good things about, but I was hesitant to pay someone to do something I could do, albeit with a lot of complaining. While the late Stewart Wieck and I were talking about how he was doing his KSs in preparation for our shared Scarred Lands Kickstarter, he extolled the virtues of BackerKit and convinced me that the time and effort saved was well worth it.

And he was right. Not only does their set-up simplify any given disbursement of reward links or messages to setting up one file and letting BK get the links out to all who have that reward listed, but they have a “pre-order” page where folks who missed the KS can still “pledge” for items from the KS after it is over.

I put those two terms in parentheses because it’s not really a pledge that folks are making in that they don’t get all the stuff from the Reward Tiers, but they do get some, and it’s not a pre-order in the sense we are all used to in this hobby. But the terms are close enough and most importantly, they are a great way for folks to get involved in the KS after it has run, but without waiting for the books in stores, if they are even the type that get there.

As the folks who have contacted me about the Deluxe Wraith 20th Anniversary Edition and wanting to back-end pledge have learned, unfortunately. Wraith 20‘s Kickstarter came before I adopted BackerKit, so we don’t have a method for allowing post-KS pledges of any kind. That is totally my bad for not adopting BK earlier. We live and learn.

We do expect those Deluxes to show up available with our friends at Indie Press Revolution (see below in The Blurbs section) eventually, though, as have previous books from KSs before BackerKit.

 

To help you out, here are links to our existing BackerKit “pre-order” pages:

NOTE: You’ll need to go to the C20 one ASAP, as I’ll be closing it down soon as we prepare to ship the backer rewards.

 

That’s a fair number of ongoing BackerKit “pre-order” sites! We really do have:

Many Worlds, One Path!

 

 

BLURBS!

KICKSTARTER:

The Trinity Continuum Kickstarter is three-quarters done and we’ve only just hit a real plateau, so now is the time to let folks know it is happening! There are a lot of fans of the original releases out there who aren’t connected to our current incarnation, so please, if you know a fan from back in the day: LET THEM KNOW THIS KS IS HAPPENING!

So far, we have pledges headed towards 300% of our funding goal, over 1500 backers, and we’ve gone through thirteen Stretch Goals including VARGs, new Noetic Biotech, new Cyberware and new Espionage-Related Hardtech, and Aberrants and their cults that will be added to the AEon AExpansion, a Trinity Continuum: Aeon novella entitled “Dawn“, a scenario called “Caper, Incorporated” has been added to the In Media Res scenario collection PDF for the Trinity Continuum Core, and backers will be able to download the Trinity Core Dice for the Onyx Dice Rolling App.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/trinity-continuum-aeon-rpg

Trinity Continuum: Aeon, is our reboot of the classic Trinity (Aeon) game, and Trinity Continuum: Core is the core book that all of our Trinity Continuum game lines will spin off from. Both books will be a part of this Kickstarter and backers have already received the first two quarters of the Trinity Continuum: Core text, with more to come. James Bell, our Kickstarter Manager, has been keeping this KS hopping, so we hope you’ll check it out!

Our next Kickstarter is slated to be EX3‘s Dragon-Blooded.

 

 

 

As we try and find ways to enable our community to more easily play our games, the Onyx Dice Rolling App is now live! Our dev team has been doing updates since we launched based on the excellent use-case comments by our community, and this thing is both rolling and rocking!

Last week the devs are added a whole bunch of new game lines’ dice and rolling bg’s and got caught by a bug Apple needed to fix, so be sure to update your app and soon that should be fixed.

There’s been tweaks to all elements of the UI, you can now preview every die type in the store, and you can use multiple die types per roll! Here are the links for the Apple and Android versions:

DRIVETHRURPG.COM:

 

With a howl of RAGE, the W20 Changing Ways PDF and physical book PoD charges at you this Wednesday on DTRPG.com! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/229183/W20-Changing-Ways

Changing Ways is an in-depth look at what it means to be a werewolf, both on a personal level and as part of a pack. It digs deep into what it feels like to have bones re-knit after breaking, the range of senses available across all forms, and the sudden heady rush of the Gifts and Rites bestowed by spirits. It also provides a look at what life is like for lupus and metis werewolves, characters who have had experiences alien to any person. It shows the many ways that werewolves organize in packs, and how those packs are designed as groups of warriors, rather than aligned to the behavior of wolves.

Changing Ways contains:

• A detailed look at what it means to grow up as a lupus or metis werewolf, and how that colors a character’s perspective.

• More information on what it feels like to be a werewolf, a creature that changes in both body and mind.

• Frameworks and organizations for packs, along with new tactics and systems for forging the pack as part of play.

 

 

 

 

Appearing on DriveThruRPG this Wednesday are the PDF and PoD physical book versions of Arms of the Chosen for Exalted 3rd Edition! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/226224/Arms-of-the-Chosen

Take up the panoply of legendary heroes and lost ages, and awaken the world-shaking might of their Evocations. Before the dawn of time, the Exalted wielded god-metal blades to cast down the makers of the universe. In an ancient epoch of forgotten glories, Creation’s greatest artificers forged unimaginable wonders and miracle-machines.

Now, in the Age of Sorrows, kingdoms go to war over potent artifacts, scavenger princes risk everything to uncover relics of the past, and the Exalted forge great arms and armor on the anvil of legend. These treasures are yours to master.

Discover the mystical power of the five magical materials and the secrets of creating your own Evocations. Wield weapons of fabled might and don the armor of mythic heroes, making their puissance your own. Claim Creation’s wonders: the miraculous tools of the Chosen, living automatons, flying machines, hearthstones, and more. And unleash the mighty warstriders, titanic god-engines of conquest and devastation, to once more shake Creation with their footfalls.

 

 

 

 

Coming this Wednesday as an Advance PDF on DTRPG, we reveal The Secret of Vinsen’s Tomb, a Jumpstart adventure for Pugmire. (And yes, there will be a physical book PoD version coming soon). www.drivethrurpg.com/product/232337/The-Secrets-of-Vinsens-Tomb–A-Pugmire-Jumpstart

A cat living in Pugmire disappears, but neither the police dogs nor the cats of the Cat Quarter know why. When zombies attack the heroes, however, all signs point to an invasion by the Monarchies of Mau. But how does this intrigue tie into the lost tomb of the first king of Pugmire?

The Secret of Vinsen’s Tomb is a Pugmire story for three to six characters. This jumpstart contains all the rules and characters you need to play — just grab some dice and go! You can also use this adventure with the full version of Pugmire.

The Secret of Vinsen’s Tomb contains:

• An evocative and mysterious setting that’s both family friendly and deep enough to create compelling stories.

• A summary of Pugmire’s traditional fantasy rules system. It’s designed for streamlined play, with an emphasis on cooperation and action over competition and violence.

• A complete adventure for a Guide to run for three to six players. Also useful for Guides running a full Pugmire game of first or second level characters!

• Six ready-to-play characters, so you can jump into the action.

Can your good dogs discover the secret of Vinsen’s Tomb?

 

Also releasing this Wednesday on DTRPG is the physical book PoD version of the Pugmire Core Rulebook itself!

 

 

 

Is a life of running and hiding a life worth living? We say yes. There’s always something between the running and the hiding, and those moments of grace make it all worthwhile.

The Huntsmen Chronicle Anthology is a perfect companion piece to Changeling: The Lost, 2nd Edition. These stories spin tales of the Lost, of those abducted and enslaved by fairies. Those who escaped, but whose captors will stop at nothing to find them. These fairies summon forth the Huntsmen, primordial hunters who understand nothing but pursuit and capture. The Huntsmen are unstoppable monsters, and the Lost can only look to each other for respite, rare comfort, and rarer trust.

The Hedge has parted and you can get the PDF/electronic versions and the physical book PoD version of The Huntsmen Chronicle Fiction Anthology for Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition at DTRPG.com! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/210042/The-Huntsmen-Chronicle-Anthology

At last, one of the most legendary of Kindred will share his personal journal with you! V20 Beckett’s Jyhad Diary goes on sale in PDF and PoD versions on DTRPG.com! http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/225322/V20-Becketts-Jyhad-Diary

It’s ever been a loaded word among vampires. Jyhad is in force everywhere from lofty, perfumed Elysium to cloying, smoke-filled blood feasts. Jyhad’s the eternal game played by elders, Methuselahs, and worse — it’s the agenda of beings so utterly beyond humanity, one such as yourself could scarcely understand its movements. 

Luckily for you, you’ve picked up a copy of my diary. With my help you may just take a step on the first rung of understanding. Information worth having is information you must earn through blood, and oh, how I’ve bled for what’s contained within these pages. 

— Beckett 

Beckett’s Jyhad Diary serves as the definitive book of setting and plot for Vampire: The Masquerade, containing 30 chapters spanning different geographical regions, encountering vampires of every clan, profiling obscure and profound segments of the mythology, and providing countless story hooks on every page.

Masterfully written by the likes of Neall Raemonn Price, Joshua Alan Doetsch, Myranda Sarro, Steffie de Vaan, Malcolm Sheppard, Alan Alexander, Renee Knipe, and Matthew Dawkins, Beckett’s Jyhad Diary is as fascinating to read as to use for your game Chronicles.

TWO PRINCES. BITTER RIVALS. AND A COTERIE CAUGHT BETWEEN THEM. 

Marcus Verus, the vampiric Prince of Chester, secretly prepares to go into torpor. Should his plans be made public, the Prince knows the wolves — both real and imagined — would launch an attack, threatening all within his domain.

That’s where you come in.

Legacy of Lies includes:

  • Basic rules for players and Storytellers
  • Introduction to the Vampire: The Masquerade Dark Ages setting
  • Introductory adventure
  • Characters for players and Storytellers

 

 

 

 

 

A Land Where Legends Walk

Drawing enthusiastically on Greek mythology, the revised and re-imagined Scarred Lands nonetheless retains its place as a modern fantasy RPG setting. This is a world shaped by gods and monsters, and only the greatest of heroes can expect to be counted among them. The most populous continent of Scarn, Ghelspad, plays host to vast unexplored regions, hides unsolved riddles from ancient cultures, and taunts adventures with the promise of undiscovered riches hidden among the ruins of older civilizations.

Yet the myths of the Scarred Lands are relatively recent events. The effects of the Titanswar still ripple through the world, and the heroines and villains of many of these stories are part of living memory, if not still living.

The Award-Winning Fantasy Setting Returns

Scarred Lands has been a favorite fantasy setting since the release of the Creature Collection for the d20 System in 2000. In subsequent years, over 40 titles were published for Scarred Lands, making it one of the most fully supported fantasy RPG settings ever and the premiere product line of Sword & Sorcery Studios.

Available in both 5th Edition and Pathfinder compatible versions! PDF and PoD formats available NOW!

    Have been a proud supporter of OPP; owner of 2nd ed. Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, Promethean, Demon & Beast, and now Pugmire.

    Having no Beast Player’s Guide, and continuing to have Beasts as the only major splat without a power that adds their Defense against firearms, is bitterly disappointing. If Beast Player’s Guide can’t be released this week, may we at least have a preview of a new Atavism that addresses the gap?

    • Griautis
      February 20, 2018 at 4:28 am

      Why does every splat need a counterpart for every type of power? 🙂

      • David
        February 20, 2018 at 5:56 pm

        Thanks for responding, Griautis. I should have mentioned that I’m AmusedByIrony from the fora, where I have a few homebrew contributions.

        In answer: I don’t think there needs to be a counterpart for *every* type of power. But superhuman physical ability generally, and superhuman speed particularly, is a staple of supernatural and horror monsters across the board. When a) every other splat has a bullet-dodge power, b) bullet-dodge powers are incredibly useful in combat encounters, and c) bullet-dodging is an incredibly gratifying exercise in the kind of wish-fulfillment that a tabletop RPG can offer, Beast’s lack of one sticks out to me like a sore thumb.

        Pretty please, Onyx Path: a teaser on this topic would be a much-appreciated gesture!

        Hi Rich,

        Are we to assume that Hunter 2nd will definitely be getting a kickstarter or will it pass through the design process without one, like Mage and Vampire? Thanks!

    Hi,

    I remember a planed book for werewolf forsaken. Something about ghostwolfs, the pure and bale hounds; cannot remember the name.
    Did not find it in the updates, so my question: Can you give us a little update here?

    Thank you very much!
