Twelve Days of Onyx

Chronicles of Darkness

Merry Christmas, everyone! While we’re all busy sating our hunger for figgy pudding and other seasonal delicacies, we thought we’d bring your attention to a seasonal product from a few years back: the Twelve Days of Onyx condition cards.

Ho! Ho! Ho! We had so much fun creating the Overly Specific Condition Cards and a special Condition Card for Halloween, we decided we wanted to try something new. 

These Twelve Days of Onyx Condition Cards are holiday themed Conditions selected from contest entries submitted by members of our creative and awesome community. It was really, really difficult to choose our 12 favorites from so many awesome submissions, yet that was the task and here are the ones our Onyx Path team chose.

Part of the Chronicles of Darkness rules, Conditions add an additional layer of consequence and reward to certain actions in Chronicles of Darkness games. Various things within the course of a game can cause Conditions. These include exceptional successes, supernatural abilities, and really any situation where the Storyteller thinks they can be used to heighten the drama of a game.

Conditions include:

  • In the Spotlight
  • Wreath: The Ornamentation
  • Blue Christmas
  • It’s a Wonderful Lie
  • Festive Fury
  • Yippee Ki-Yay
  • Gift Card
  • Following a Star
  • Overly Festive Cultists
  • Holiday Dinner
  • Earworm
  • Alone for the Holidays

    Festive Fury and Holiday Dinner were the first things I ever wrote to be published by Onyx Path. It warms my heart to see the Twelve Days of Onyx Condition Cards brought up once more. Happy holidays, everyone.

    It’d be nice if another set of these were done, so we could get specific conditions for the splats that were missed. I mean, Geist practically begs for a “Haunted by Three Spirits” card.
