Zombie Dreams [Monday Meeting Notes]

Monday Meeting, News

Going to make this one a taaaad bit shorter than last week’s. While I’d like to say it is in the interest of giving you loyal readers a break, in fact it’s because I really didn’t sleep well last night and my brain is mush.

For example, without my going back and really concentrating, most of the writing I’m doing right now looks like this:

Mopst oif tHr wrttiomg I”n dopIngh lokks L1je tyhjiis.

As you might imagine, it’s put quite the damper on my writing this blog.

No worries, though, the reason for the crappy sleep isn’t something important, or connected to Onyx Path, or anything like that. As near as I can figure, I was having anxiety dreams because my kids are all going back to their various schools starting yesterday and finishing next weekend.

They were expressing their concerns and had last minute this and thats, and all of that seeped into my head and I dreamed what I thought were three hour epic searches for classrooms only to wake up and note that 15 minutes had passed. Over and over again. I never even knew that my high school was built by the same architect who designed Hogwarts, but all those Mobius Strip escalators to the same floor, and doors that led to nowhere logical, were all there at dear old Central High.

Apparently.

 

Promethean: The Created Tormented art by Tilen Javornik

 

 

Although, the particular manifestation was pretty benign and keyed to my personal “can’t find the class and the bell is ringing” freak-out, what I went through is pretty common. We take in so much stuff from others and chew it up, internalize it, and some of us can let those anxieties escape via dreams, which is pretty cool, but other stuff stays in and does affect us.

Plus, if you are doing “creative work”, a large part of that process is to open yourself up and not just absorb input from outside yourself, but to grab that stuff and use it. To use it and create something with it. It’s what we do in a very basic sense. Some do it with creative processes that have discrete stages that build towards the end creative result, others have a more intuitive process that may not even seem like there’s a creative process so much as spontaneous creation. To an outside observer.

It so happens that our business, like so many, relies on constant communication; between our in-house folks, between all our freelance creative teams, between us and our Onyx Path community, and the gaming community as a whole. That’s a lot of input, and as with so much of social media, a lot of it is not helpful – whether by intent or accidentally. It is exhausting to weed out so much extra noise to get to the signal you need for your project.

Which is why I encourage, and sometimes order, our Onyx Path crew to take vacations. Gotta let the brain absorb different input. It’s tough, though, because we do have so many projects all going at different stages for different game lines, so there’s no “good” time for a vacation, usually. Nevertheless, it is so very necessary.

And it so happens that post-Gen Con is a great time to decompress and get revved up for pulling things together as we head towards the new year, so we’ve been blinking away one at a time and popping back so another one of our Onyx team can get away for a bit.

In fact, the time between Gen Con and Fall also sounded like  a good time to reconfigure our Onyx Path website. After all, every site Impish Ian looked at said it was a five minute change. Liars! A big apology from us to everyone who couldn’t log in, or post, or get emails (that may have just been me) during the process of changing over, realizing it wasn’t working, and changing everything back. If we had known it wasn’t actually as easy as it said on the tin, we would have warned everybody.

Fortunately, Kickstarter is not connected directly to our website, so we were able to launch the Dystopia Rising: Evolution Kickstarter and fund within a day. Which is awesome because that means we can get to move quickly into creating some of the also awesome Stretch Goal projects.

We also have some equally awesome reward tiers that include getting your character into both the text and the visuals, yourself done up as one of the zombies in the art, and artifacts from the early days of the Dystopia Rising LARP. Like all of our KSs, we’ve tried to add fun and flavorful rewards that connect directly with both our new edition and the previous incarnations of the setting. Check out the link in our BLURBS! section below!

In this stretch leading up to the Labor Day Weekend, our sales partners at Indie Press Revolution are wrapping up the wildly successful 40% sale they’ve been running on our Deluxe W20 and M20 printer overrun books. If you’ve missed out on these beauties, this may be your best chance at getting them at these sorts of prices! Only until the end of the month: https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/Deals-and-Specials/

In their continuing efforts to open up more Community Content sites, White Wolf will be adding Exalted to their Storytellers’ Vault site on DTRPG.com. All three editions will be opened, but if you want to create something for any of the three, please carefully read the info provided on the site detailing what is and isn’t allowed.

It’s a great opportunity to create, publish, and get paid for your unofficial Exalted material, and as Matthew Dawkins likes to point out, the Community Content sites are also a super way to “audition” for writing for official projects with us at Onyx Path.

No guarantees, of course. And better I stress it now, yes, we still hold the license to create official Exalted material, and WW is the company that runs the site and determines what is allowable, not Onyx Path.

In fact, since this is the last week of the month, two things happen here at Onyx Path. One, we put up the latest monthly installments of EX3‘s Hundred Devils Night Parade and Adversaries of the Righteous on Wednesday. We’re getting to the point where we’re looking to assemble at least the Hundred Devil monthly releases into a single book, although we actually still have a lot more to go.

Would you folks prefer us to get the current batch assembled into a book now, and then create a second book later, or hold off and create one big book? I’m probably going to ask the EX3 backers this in the monthly Backer Update too.

What’s a Backer Update, you say? Why that is an update for one of our Kickstarted projects that we send out every month to those who backed that KS. Since we have a lot of KS’d projects, James and I send out a lot of Backer Updates each month.

We send them monthly because after long experience we’ve decided that once a month is a good reliable pace to get the on-going status for the KS you backed, and if something happens that backers need to know about, like a PDF going out or a book shipping, we’ll send more updates.

Now, if you’ve backed a few of our KSs, that means you get a lot of very similar Backer Updates, particularly since we also include a notice about whatever our current Kickstarter is. We realize that hearing about a new KS while waiting for yours to progress, or getting a bunch of repeated notices, can get tedious, but please bear in mind that we also always used to get complaints that previous backers didn’t know about our current KS.

With the dearth of strong centralized communication in this business, we chose to notify our previous backers about the current KS rather than have folks miss out on it. YMMV of course, but those “Why didn’t I hear about this KS?” messages have dropped off dramatically and we sure hope those folks have had a chance to jump into the latest KS.

After all, our KSs run the same range of game worlds as our game lines: WoD, CofD, Exalted 3rd, our Storypath and 5e based settings and more – there are a lot of interests out there and we’re trying to keep the communication flowing about our:

Many Worlds, One Path!

 

BLURBS!

KICKSTARTER:

 

 

The Dystopia Rising: Evolution Kickstarter funded in less than a day, and has already passed one Stretch Goal!

The next Stretch Goal is where we start building the Threat Guide companion PDF which is a first-person guide with mechanics to the various threats facing survivors in the DR:E world, so we’re pretty excited to get started with that!

Dystopia Rising is a post-apocalyptic roleplaying game that quickly grew into a live-action sensation. Now, Onyx Path is pleased to update the live-action setting with Dystopia Rising: Evolution, a tabletop roleplaying game that presents a fresh and exciting take on the post-apocalypse genre.

Dystopia Rising: Evolution will be powered by Onyx Path’s Storypath system, and includes all the rules you need to play as a survivor in the post-apocalypse, including rules for creating characters for up to 24 different Strains, variations on humanity that survived the Fall. It also has details on the powers of faith and psionics, along with advice on running action-adventure stories, webs of personal intrigue, or procedural investigations. And, finally, dozens of antagonists, including a variety of zombies and raiders to use in your series.

Throughout this Kickstarter campaign, we will be posting complete previews of the Dystopia Rising: Evolution manuscript as backer-only updates.

 

ELECTRONIC GAMING:

As we 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!

Here are the links for the Apple and Android versions:

    MUMMMY!

    In other news, I think I’ve had that exact same dream, except I’m the teacher! We’re back at work this week, kids come next week. Not sure who’s more nervous, so I totally feel you on the anxiety dreams.

    • richt
      August 28, 2018 at 1:10 pm

      Funny, I never had anxiety dreams when I was teaching. And I totally blame my kids for broadcasting their anxiety into me! 🙂 I am quite thrilled they are all onto another year in their academic lives. Woot!

      GAH! Yeah, we did that one last time. This week’s is Odara, Chosen of Ash. I told Rich the wrong one last night.

    As far as Hundred Devils goes, I’ve been buying each installment as it comes out, and while I would like to have them compiled in one book, I don’t really want to pay for everything a second time.

    So, I guess I’d turn the question back at you and ask how much time and expense putting together a smaller compilation now would entail, given that you can’t necessarily sell it to anyone who’s been buying the monthly releases.

    • Ferozstein
      August 28, 2018 at 3:24 am

      I’m in the same situation. The only way I’d buy the Adversaries/Parade compilations again after having paid for each monthly installment would be if the collective pdfs contained a fair bit of additional material. A reasonable discount (e.g. based on DRTPG history showing purchases of individual installments) would help, too.

      That being said, if there’s going to be a print version available, I’m getting it regardless of the above.

      • richt
        August 28, 2018 at 1:03 pm

        Yes, part of the whole reason to compile them is to be able to offer them as a larger book in both PDF and physical book PoD versions. If you think you’d get a PoD version, would you prefer one smaller compilation sooner and one later, or all of the monthly selections compiled as a big book over a year from now?

    • richt
      August 28, 2018 at 1:09 pm

      The compilation into a book was always the plan, so doing a couple of books so that we can give folks compiled PDF and PoD physical book versions sooner than later is a question I wouldn’t have asked if it messed us up. It’s more for the community to get a chance to let us know what they want. You aren’t going to pick them up, regardless of smaller book now vs bigger book later, so it’s clearly not an issue for you.

    Greetings!
    What happened to the Bunyip tribebook for W20? Its not listed in the current projects, nor can I find in the newest Publishing Broschure.
    Did the project get scrapped?

    • Bunyip
      August 28, 2018 at 8:55 am

      Rich answered this back in the comments from the 30 July Monday notes. To quote Rich:

      “Indefinitely postponed. Tribe books require more effort and expense than you’d think for their size, and we need to be able to justify that considering the very likely W5 coming down the pike.”

    New graphic from Monarchies of Mau seems to indicate that Cats are using pets (non-Uplifted ) dogs as hunting unicorns! 😀 😀 😀 I’m not sure I’m more amused or intrigued by this setting fact.

    • richt
      August 28, 2018 at 1:00 pm

      Well, it’s not really a non-Uplifted dog if it’s a unicorn. It’s something else. 🙂

  8. Aleks
    August 28, 2018 at 4:51 am

    I would personally prefer Adversaries/Hundred Devils as one final book – PoD would be best – instead of smaller compilations.

    • August 28, 2018 at 10:22 am

      I agree, especially as a purchaser of everything. Though I wouldn’t mind paying for the whole thing up front and getting the entries as they’re released.

      • richt
        August 28, 2018 at 12:49 pm

        Thanks, and we’ve already hashed through the whole subscription idea and haven’t decided to go that way for these. Maybe with something else.

    • richt
      August 28, 2018 at 1:00 pm

      Yes, definitely PDF and PoD for the compilation. Thanks!

    I am so happy to see a Mummy 2nd Ed coming.
    My hope is that it will be a bit of an easier read. C.A. Suleiman’s style is very distinct, but for an non-native speaker (but I read and speak English on a daily basis) the reading was hard – a bit like reading Shakespeare.
    In addition the mechanics were at least one dimension more complex than in any other nWoD book.
    As Mummy is the monster I hold very dear I am looking forward to this release like nothing else from Onyx PAth

    • richt
      August 28, 2018 at 12:58 pm

      We’re aiming at making some changes to enhance those elements folks already enjoy, and to bring together the material that was spread out in other books and the ST section. Different team, so I imagine the writing style will be different as well. Thanks!

      • August 28, 2018 at 2:59 pm

        Rich is dead on the money. Mummy needs to keep to its core mythology to still be Mummy, but we’ll be expanding it and making it more accessible too.

        • Ferdinand von Schenk
          August 29, 2018 at 2:56 am

          You are my hero 😉
          I am soooo looking forward to this !
          Well – it will take at least another 12 months before I see anything substantial about it, but I can be patient…

  11. Simon Darkstep
    August 28, 2018 at 8:57 am

    I’d like the Hundred Devils and Adversaries to be individual products *BUT* with an annual roll-up type product to get everybody up to date easily.

    I also miss the days when games had binders for monster folios and you could fill them out as you go. Maybe that could be a good product to go with the POD annual roll-up.

    • richt
      August 28, 2018 at 12:56 pm

      Thanks, but the question was whether we do one book for 100 Devils and one book for Adversaries much later, like more than a year, or do we do draw the line ASAP and release a couple of smaller books in a month or so and then a couple of smaller books finishing up the offerings more than a year from now.

      As for binders like All The World’s Monsters, back in the day, you can pull that together yourself by printing them out and 3-hole punching them into your own binder. They were an option that some folks enjoyed, but not an option that we are set up to get into now.

    I’m curious about Scion Here and Night Horrors: The Tormented being in Layout Proofing and post editing development. I know you’ve shared details about your development stages before, but I thought all development had to be finished before layout started. Are these books actually in both stages?

    • James Hunt
      August 28, 2018 at 9:27 am

      Well my typing isn’t on point. Scion Hero.

    • Ian A. A. Watson
      August 28, 2018 at 9:52 am

      From the comments in the August 13 blog post, Rich says:

      “The two Scion books have a more involved back and forth than most other projects, so while proofing would be a back and forth between the graphic designer and the developer for any book, we’ve kept Hero in Post-Editing Development to indicate the more complex process.”

      • James Hunt
        August 28, 2018 at 5:35 pm

        Thanks for the clarification. That makes sense. I missed the earlier exchange about that nuance.

    • richt
      August 28, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      Night Horrors: The Tormented is not still in post editing development, it’s only in proofing. That was a holdover mention I haven’t removed yet.

    I would love to see that stuff released as a book!!!

    • richt
      August 28, 2018 at 12:48 pm

      Was always the plan to compile each set of the monthly offerings as a book. The question is whether to go with a single big book for each title in well over a year, or to go with a smaller set of compiled creatures (or adversaries, depending on the book) sooner and so have several books for each title. Basically sooner but smaller or later and all of them.

    I greatly loved Mummy: The Curse (it was the game that convinced me to give CoD a chance). It really great that its getting a second edition and I will be backing that KS as well.

    Can we know who the Lead Dev/Dev Team is shaking out to be?

    • richt

      Matthew Dawkins is the dev for Mummy 2 and I believe he’s working with Dixie on it, as well.

        Yep, Dixie and I are sharing duties on this one 50/50!

    I’m looking forward to purchasing Hundred Devils in book/PDF compilation form. Either multiple books or a single book, does not matter, just not the little PDFs.

      Was always the plan to have a compilation book – no worries.

    Question regarding the Kickstarter for V5 Chicago by Night: will V5 core rulebook be available as an add-on? If that is so, then I will gladly postpone buying the core rulebook to support the Kickstarter.

      We’re currently talking to WW about that very thing and more connections to V5 in the CbN KS.

    Hundred Devils and Adversaries: if a smaller compelationnis going to be produced before the big one is done, I’d buy it if there was a discount based on how many of the previously published one pagers were purchased, and if there was additional material added in to give something new.

    Hey RichT !
    I have a question regarding the upcoming arrival of Exalted on the Storyteller’s Vault (SV):
    Will we be allowed to publish translated version or extracts of the rulebooks?
    Is it depending on your decision or on WhiteWolf’s?
    Currently the FAQ on SV tells that only some Vampire editions might be translated, so I was wondering what would be allowed regarding Exalted 3rd Ed. Because While I don’t have any issue understanding English, some players from my circle would love a French translation of the Rulebook and we didn’t find any yet.
    Thanks.

      That’s up to White Wolf entirely, and like you, we’ll have to see what they are allowing folks to put up. Thanks!

        OK thanks for the reply !
        I really hope they will allow translations for the sake of the “Exalted Communities” in foreign countries.
        *Keeping my fingers crossed*

    Late response, but I think that if it’s possible we continue to see entries for Hundred Devils and Adversaries as an ongoing project, it would be handier to see them compiled in smaller volumes every X entries.

    On the other hand, if there is a list of planned entries with a forseeable ending, then having them each as one book by the end would probably be nicer. (Not discounting the possibility of future mini-additions.)
