  3. Aberrific! [Monday Meeting Notes] Full disclosure: with flying to Gen Con being two days away, my brain is squirming like a toad. So, quick points from the meeting, all arranged haphazardly just like that toad. Trinity Continuum: Aberrant Kickstarter Woohoo: With the TC: Aberrant KS down to it’s last day, we are just thrilled by the number and quality of backers and their commentary. Considering that the original Trinity Continuum KS was for both the Core and TC: Aeon and this one is mostly for one book, it really speaks volumes for how the game is gripping people’s imaginations! Big thanks also to our “KS Concierge” James Bell for his tireless efforts and never-flagging good humor all through this one! (I’ll see James at Gen Con to deliver my personal thanks and buy him a drink or twenty!) V5 Chicago By Night Response: We sent out the Backer PDF for CbyN last week and the comments have been all about how great it looks, and how fantastic the writing is. It’s been so wonderful to hear that our first V5 book has been given top marks for quality! We particularly love hearing how we were able to show how V5 can work in a concrete way. This was always what we intended for a new CbyN, so it’s really gratifying for the whole team! Thanks for all your positive feedback! Dark Eras 2 art by Leo Albiero GenCon Reminder: Like I said, going there in two days. Mighty Matt McElroy and I are representing for Onyx Path and will be walking around, hanging at our sales partners’ (Studio2 and Indie Press Revolution) booths. We’ll also stop in to where The Wrecking Crew are running demos of our games in the gaming area, and, of course, running our panels. We’ll be joined by Eddy Webb and some of our other creators on the panels, and we look forward to answering your questions. We will not have a booth – this year we chose not to have one. We’ll see if that’s a great idea, or a horrible, horrible mistake. Twitch Goodness: If you missed it, last week we started our Onyx Path Twitch Kickoff, with TC:Aberrant and other actual play sessions, interviews, and an entire episode of the Onyx Pathcast that was broadcast live on Twitch. (Fear not, it’ll be up in audio-only form as usual for the Pathcast!) We are trying out a lot of different content; either our own or by hosting other folks’ streams, and not coincidentally moving towards “Affiliate Status”, which gives us even more fun ways for everyone to enjoy Twitch streams. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/459571845 VtR2 Spilled Blood art by Aaron Riley 5e Creature Collection Kickstarter Coming: Jon Hodgson and his crew at Handiworks Games are reaaaalllly close to launching the Kickstarter campaign for what promises to be an absolutely gorgeous book of Scarred Lands monsters! One of the cool things about this collaboration has been that it is also the launch of a new official Onyx Path Kickstarter account. Since we’ve started, our KSs have been run off of my account, with my picture in the corner and folks sending comments and questions directly to me even if it has actually been our KS “concierge” James who is running them. So Jon can run this one for Creature Collection, and we’ll see how to best migrate other KSs over to the official Onyx Path Kickstarters. Here’s a preview of the book: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/283745/Scarred-Lands-Creature-Collection-Preview-2 Next Week’s MMN Blog Guest-blogger: Will be Dixie! She volunteered and so she gets the prize! We’ll send photos of the Con – some might even be worth showing off – and any other tidbits we glean out of the madness. New Onyx Path Team Shirt Sizes Needed: Yes, we pretty much closed our meeting with this request from Mighty Matt, and we’re hoping to get these made up in time to wear to PAX Unplugged in the Fall. It has been a few years since the first official team shirt, and our crew thinks it’s time to get some that are a bit more lightweight than our previous ones. Which just goes to demonstrate that not all of our meeting is about our amazing: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! The Trinity Continuum: Aberrant Kickstarter HAS ONE DAY LEFT! We’ve already passed Stretch Goals that are enabling us to recreate missing first edition books, a compilation of the web comic, three sections of a book statting out the characters, digital wallpaper and dice, a backer-only T-Shirt, a jumpstart adventure, two novellas, an art budget increase, a three-part scenario including a Jumpstart called Novas Worldwide, and: N!WE N!TERNATIONAL WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT – A new PDF product discussing the N!WE, the performers and industry personnel, and various elements of professional wrestling in the world of Aberrant! At $115,000 and climbing, we’ve still got more fantastic Stretch Goal rewards to come, so come check it out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/trinity-continuum-aberrant Right now, we are working on Deviant: The Renegade as our next Kickstarter campaign, although the 5e Creature Collection for Scarred Lands may premiere first on our new official Onyx Path Kickstarter account! ONYX PATH MEDIA Onyx Pathcast art by Michael Gaydos This Friday’s Onyx Pathcast features the crew interviewing fledgling writer and developer, beer expert, and all-around Geist fanatic, Mike Tomasek: https://onyxpathcast.podbean.com/ And Here’s More Media About Our Worlds: Our Twitch channel has been alive with content over the last week, and you can find it right here: https://www.twitch.tv/theonyxpath So many of our fans and customers have been engaging with the livestreams we’ve been running through the channel, and we’re so grateful for your involvement in everything we’ve been doing.

  7. Onyx Path at Gen Con 2019 Reminder before we get started: ONYX PATH DOES NOT HAVE A BOOTH THIS YEAR. Rich Thomas and Matt McElroy will be attending, and you’ll be able to find them wandering around or at our panels, but there’s no Onyx Path booth. You can find our products for sale at either the Indie Press Revolution booth (#1348) or at Studio 2 (#1929/2029). As usual, we have a ton of games going on, thanks to the tireless efforts of the Wrecking Crew. Most appear to be sold out, but there are often no-shows, so it doesn’t hurt to show up with a ticket and see if they have room available, or if they’ll just let you watch. As mentioned above, we’ll still be running panels: Thursday 3pm: What’s Up With Onyx Path? in Crowne Plaza’s Pennsylvania Station AFriday 11am: What’s Up With Onyx Path Community Content? in the JW Marriott’s room 202Friday 3pm: Freelancing for Onyx Path Publishing in the stadium’s meeting room 12Saturday 11am: What’s Up With Onyx Path? in Crowne Plaza’s Hay Market A Good luck to attendees, and we hope you have fun!

  9. Now Available: Blood Sea in print, plus Scion Jumpstart! Now available in PDF and print from DriveThruRPG: A Light Extinguished: A Scion 2nd Edition Jumpstart! Someone has killed Bai Amari, the Luminary, a well-respected and beloved Scion of Ra. Who would want such a thing? Who could muster enough power to end the immortal life of a demigod? Is this a declaration of war? Who is behind this terrible tragedy? The Gods and their children feel the tremors of Titanic influence behind the mystery of the Luminary’s killing and have asked key personages (the player characters) to investigate if something more sinister is afoot. Mortal law enforcement investigated the murder on a mundane level, but they need the Scions’ power: Whoever it was must have the backing of someone, or something, supernatural. In this jumpstart, the characters must help solve the murder of an important member of their divine community before her killer can strike again and awaken a bright and terrible power. This jumpstart adventure includes everything you need to play a full game of Scion Second Edition: A complete story designed to be played either in one long session or over the course of several shorter sessions Five ready-to-play Scion characters Condensed Storypath core rules to help facilitate Storyguides running the game Also now available in print: Blood Sea: The Crimson Abyss for 5e! Waves of Scarlet In the darkest depths of the ocean floor, off the Eastern coast of Ghelspad, lies the bound titan Kadum. He bleeds endlessly from the hole in his chest where his heart was plucked out. This blood — the blood of the Mountainshaker, the blood of the Father of Monsters — corrupts everything that it touches. Welcome to the Blood Sea This sourcebook contains information for campaigns set in and around the Blood Sea. Guidelines for playing characters of each class as pirates or privateers are presented, including new class archetypes who draw power from the crimson depths. Pirate organizations are introduced for characters to join or oppose, and additional rules allow players to assume roles on a ship’s crew. Merch We’re trying something a little different, and have uploaded a bunch of our Scion shirt designs to TeePublic! Give them a shot and see if they tickle your fancy. If Blood Sea’s more your thing, consider picking up a shirt (RB/TP), journal, or poster!

  11. I understand that completely. I sleeve the cards for a lot of my games and do everything I can to keep the games as pristine as possible. I probably sat there for a couple of minutes before I finally I ripped up the first card. When we finished the game I did throw it away. We talked about whether we thought it was a ploy or not. But after we finished the first season every player loved it and said they thought it was a good idea. I am the 3rd person out of the original 4 to go back and play it with another group. When we try out a new game the first question is usually about whether it is a legacy style game or not. If you ever decide to play it, please let me know what you think. If anyone ever wants to play a Legacy game and don't want to throw it in the trash, then you should try Charterstone. In it you use stickers and modify the board in the campaign. The neat thing about it is you are creating a village, so when you are done with the campaign you can continue to play it as long as you want. The rules and setup for your village are unique to your version of the game.
  12. Has anyone played Pandemic Legacy? Season 1 is probably the best board game experience I have ever had.
  13. I got the books, but haven't had a chance to read them yet. I'll post back with thoughts when I can.
  14. When someone creates a game it is set to active by default. This setting controls whether it is displayed on the forum page. If your game ends or will go on hiatus, you can set it to inactive to remove it from the homepage. If you decide to start you game back up you can set it to active at any time. On the game's main page there is a button on the right side labelled "Manage Game." If you click that it will open a drop down menu. In the drop down menu select "Edit Game Settings." The Edit Game Settings popup will have an option for status, which has values of active or inactive. Just click the one you want and hit save to change the setting. When I changed the games app earlier this year it did not copy over the game owner, so many of the old games currently have the site as the owner. If you created a game and want to bring it back into active state and you are no longer listed as the owner, please PM me with the game name and I'll will switch ownership back you to. Please let me know if there are any questions.
  15. I don't know that Solo looks good, but I did enjoy the Arrested Development treatment.
  16. Titan, I restored the missing post. This file could also be of interest:

  20. The evolution of the Storypath system is tied to our work on Trinity: Continuum, a world of hope, heroism, and peril, and Scion, a world where the children of the old gods walk the earth. Early on, we found that both new editions of these games had similar system needs, because their characters are larger-than-life and fight in epic battles on a grand scale. We knew we needed a system that could accommodate everyday citizens on the street, superheroes soaring above skyscrapers, and gods of the sun and sky, but we also wanted rules to help facilitate the connection between the player-characters, their organizations (Allegiances for Trinity and Pantheons for Scion), and their values. To move forward, however, we needed to take a step back, because the first editions of Trinity: Continuum and Scion used custom variants of the Storyteller System which powered Vampire: The Masquerade and other classic White Wolf games. Despite the differences between those variants, however, at its core the Storyteller System was designed chiefly as a horror game for creatures that could be effectively fought by human opponents. In other words, the Storyteller System is great for vampires, but it didn’t excel at portraying superheroes…or gods! To us, this meant that the stories of these action-adventure games were hindered by their original systems. The Storypath System was designed as a new set of rules, inspired by the legacy of the Storyteller and Storytelling Systems, in addition to other story-centric rules. The Storypath System keeps the focus on narrative, story-built play, and action-adventure. It also draws inspiration from a number of other influences that focus on a cinematic high-octane action and storytelling, as well, to create a streamlined experience for epic stories. Within these pages, you’ll find a preview of the rules and examples for both Scion and Trinity: Continuum. We hope you enjoy the new Storypath System and are inspired to roll the dice and tell great stories!
