I see from the most recent Monday Meeting Notes that Pirates of Pugmire is currently in the layout phase, which is awesome news. Also exciting, our Bonus Adventure, which we added by achieving Stretch Goals during the campaign, is currently in editing. So, three bells and all's well.

I'll post our list of delivered and pending rewards with each summary update, so that we can track everything that's needed and keep on the same page. Also, feel free to check out Onyx Path's Monday Meeting Notes posts (linked here) which will give you a weekly status report on ALL of the projects Onyx Path has on the go (you may see spoilers for other kickstarter campaigns are currently running or will soon be launched).

 COMING TO KICKSTARTER ON FEB 6th AT 2:00 PM EST

The scales have fallen from your eyes. A fire is lit — is it a lamp perched over the inscription on an ancient blade or a roaring conflagration consuming the house in which the howling fiends wait? Things will never be the same after this. You’ve set forth on a damning path. Carry the Vigil. Fight back the shadows.

Hunter: The Vigil Second Edition is a standalone game that can be played by new or existing players. The lore has been updated to not only reflect the uptick in monsters, but also the fact that hunting monsters is not exclusive to a location, group of people, or time period. There may be more monsters than ever before, but now there are more ways to fight them, too.

In Hunter: The Vigil, anyone can be a hunter — provided you are committed to the hunt. It is a game of personal horror and sacrifice that tests relationships and encourages teamwork within a cell, compact, or conspiracy.

Will you heed the call? Will you uphold the Vigil?

2019 Year End Summary
about 2 months ago – Tue, Dec 31, 2019 at 08:46:45 AM

Ahoy, me hearties!

On this final day of 2019, I wanted to do a quick check in on our campaign and where we stand. The intention of this post is to both to look forward to what we can expect in 2020, and then take a moment to look at Onyx Path's journey over this past year.

It's the end of the YAR!

In 2019, Pirates of Pugmire had a successful Kickstarter campaign, with 819 backers pledging $47,792 to help bring this project to life!

2020 should have great things in store for backers. Even though this game was an awesome success on kickstarter, I still think it's something of a sleeper hit. Get ready to see a lot more interest and have new gamers joining our community when the backer pdf comes out.

ONYX PATH ON KICKSTARTER IN 2019

Kickstarter continues to be an important part of the process for Onyx Path, and looking at the long list of projects in the works on the Monday Meeting Notes blog, it certainly looks like that’ll be the case in the new year.

I mean, check out the Onyx Path 2019-2020 Publishing Brochure for a taste of all the things they've got going on!

Rather than just take pre-order for an upcoming project, Kickstarter has allowed Onyx Path to gauge interest in game lines (to see if they should develop additional projects beyond those offered during the campaign), and sometimes even add additional projects to a game line immediately via Stretch Goal achievements. More importantly, it’s a chance to interact with the community and for everyone to get involved from the earliest stages.

Looking at 2019, Onyx Path had 7 Kickstarter campaigns funded, as well as teaming up with Handiwork Games on a successful campaign for the Scarred Lands 5E Creature Collection.

  • THEY CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA!
  • LUNARS: FANGS AT THE GATES
  • CONTAGION CHRONICLE
  • PIRATES OF PUGMIRE
  • TRINITY CONTINUUM: ABERRANT
  • DEVIANT: THE RENEGADES
  • MUMMY: THE CURSE Second Edition

And, though the campaign is only halfway along and will finish in 2020, the recent Cults of the Blood Gods for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition funded in under an hour, which technically makes it funded in 2019!

Thanks to your support during these campaigns, Onyx Path was able to introduce the following additional projects:

  • Monsters of the Deep for They Came from Beneath the Sea!
  • Tales of Aquatic Terror for They Came from Beneath the Sea!
  • Heroic Land Dwellers for They Came from Beneath the Sea!
  • Many-Faced Strangers – a Lunars Companion for Exalted Third Edition
  • A Lunars-focused novella for Exalted Third Edition
  • A Lunars-focused cloth map of Creation for Exalted Third Edition
  • The Contagion Chronicle Player’s Companion
  • Global Outbreaks for the Contagion Chronicle
  • An Adventure for Pirates of Pugmire
  • A Pirates of Pugmire-focused Guide Screen
  • Releasing You Are Not Alone on DrivethruComics
  • Scanning and releasing the “Lost” PDF titles from Aberrant 1stEdition
  • N!WE for Trinity Continuum: Aberrant
  • Proteus Nova Compendium for Trinity Continuum: Aberrant
  • Novas Worldwide for Trinity Continuum: Aberrant
  • 2 Aberrant-focused novellas
  • Brand new Duke Rollo fiction to support Trinity Continuum: Aberrant
  • The Clades Companion for Deviant: The Renegades
  • The Devoted Companion for Deviant: The Renegades
  • A Deviant novella
  • The Book of Lasting Death for Mummy: The Curse Second Edition

All of that is in addition to the usual backer rewards, like T-shirt designs and digital wallpapers.

So, thank you for coming with me on this journey, and I hope that 2020 allows all of us to continue to enjoy and build these communities!

First Kickstarter of 2020: Cults of the Blood Gods

In all of Vampire: The Masquerade's history, there's never been a book wholly dedicated to the diverse faiths and cults among Kindred, the ways in which they practice, their relationships with each other, and how to utilize religion in your chronicles as a force of hope and destruction.

Cults of the Blood Gods is the book you want, if you're interested in incorporating ecclesiastical horror in your games. This book contains everything you need to have each Kindred in your coterie establish a cult, cleave to a unique faith, and establish domains in the name of an ancient methuselah, being of myth, or even the Kindred protagonists themselves.

Not only that, it provides the tools necessary to play members of the Clan of Death, once known as the Cappadocians, then the Giovanni, and now the Hecata, as well as new powers for members of a large number of cults, rules for creating your own religions, and an entire story set in Munich with ready-made characters, so you can play immediately upon receipt of the book.

Already funded and now focused on Stretch Goal supplements, you can check it out on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/cults-of-the-blood-gods-for-vampire-the-masquerade-5th-ed/

November 2019 Update

 NOW ON KICKSTARTER - MUMMY: THE CURSE Second Edition

In Mummy: The Curse, players take on the characters of the Arisen, humans who were subjects of the greatest magic ever worked by mortal hands, the Rite of Return, in the long-lost Nameless Empire. As part of the Rite, they underwent ritual death, and their souls were eternally bound to their mortal remains. Consequently, while the Arisen can be killed, they will always return, their bodies reforming anew.

Mummy: The Curse Second Edition includes all the rules you need to play as one of the Arisen: Decrees and Pillars that reflect the transformation by the Rite of Return, Utterances and Affinities as the powers you wield and the price you pay for them, magical relics and vessels for use or sacrifice, and all manner of antagonists from immortals to Shuankhsen and others besides.

Pledge to help us create and get this Second Edition of Chronicles of Darkness' Mummy: The Curse into stores! The campaign has Arisen and is now on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/339646881/mummy-the-curse-2nd-edition/

October 2019 Update
4 months ago – Thu, Oct 31, 2019 at 01:07:54 PM

Ahoy me hearties, and Happy Halloween!

 I'm sneaking in on the final day of the month to send out our regular update! It'll be super-quick, as I'm spending most of the day changing costumes! It's like a Concierge fashion show.

It's a whole crew of concierges!


Hey there, dogs and cats! It's time for your regular Realms of Pugmire update from Eddy Webb!

PIRATES STRETCH GOAL
The Pirates of Pugmire additional adventure is in editing and art direction! As I mentioned last month, the adventure is based in Dalmatian Cove, slotting between the second and third adventures in Pirates of Pugmire. I'm suggesting to the team that it might be laid out to look similar to the adventures in Pirates of Pugmire, So, since that book is in layout, we'll see if that's feasible.

TALES OF GOOD DOGS
The last drafts are in, everything's been copy-edited, and a first layout proof has been made! It may have seemed like the anthology shot ahead after lurking in "Final Drafts" for a while, but once we had everything in hand, we were all so excited that it got a little extra love along the way. Right now the editor and the writers are triple-checking it for typos, and then it'll be out for the good dogs of the Pugmire Kickstarter, and going on sale soon after that!

But while you're waiting, here's the status update for the announced Pugmire products from Onyx Path!
