  1. Up rises Dead Man’s Rust as its Kickstarter passes the funding goal! Thanks to everyone who backed it so far, and there’s even more coolness to come as we start achieving Stretch Goals during these remaining three weeks! Here’s the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/339646881/dead-mans-rust-a-mega-adventure-for-scarred-lands-5e You can check out the Media section below for all sorts of interviews and Actual Play and description videos, and here’s a few tidbits to give some insight into this bad-ass mega-adventure! Geek Native posted this awesome review of the manuscript: https://www.geeknative.com/103605/scarred-lands-mega-adventure-a-review-of-dead-mans-rust/ The review is worth reading in it’s entirety on their site, but let me just pop out this one quote: “I’m keen to avoid spoilers but the second strength of the campaign to acknowledge is how it goes for the jugular.” And since I’m doing the quote thing, here’s another from Travis Legge, the dev for the book, talking about a section of the text revealed to backers today: Here are a few selected parts of the text today, just to give non-backers an idea as to how Travis and his awesome team brought the village to life: Cults of the Blood Gods art by Sam Denmark Here are a couple of the many story-hooks presented in the chapter, which also contains a full description of the location and the people of the village: Of course, the full text is available to backers as per our usual method of providing sections of the text throughout the Kickstarter so that backers will ultimately have the complete manuscript by the time the KS is over. Under Alien Skies art by Sam Denmark What Else Was In Our Meeting Today? We’re still pulling together info from our Customer Survey, but here’s a thing that stands out already. A bunch of folks responded that their local game stores aren’t able to get the books we’ve put into distribution channels. Let me provide some thoughts on how to remedy that unwanted situation! We’ve heard that stores can’t order our books, or they try and their distributors don’t have them. Studio2 can and does provide our books to both stores and distributors, so please encourage your friendly local store to contact Studio2 directly or to get their preferred distributor to do it. If you are asking for our stuff, there’s a very big chance that others are looking for Onyx Path game books as well, so you’ll be doing others a favor while also helping yourself! Our other sales partner, IPR, can ship to stores (or to individuals) as well: https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/Retailer-Information.html And here’s their handy FAQ: https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/IPR-Prospective-Retailer-FAQ.html TC: Aberrant art by Pat McEvoy In further “how do we get our books to you” news, we made the call today to offer PDFs and other quicker to arrive items each Wednesday through December as any PoDs ordered now from DTRPG are not going to get to anyone before the holidays. You CAN still order our traditionally printed books from IPR, and also potentially your store could get the books from Studio2 as I mentioned above. In fact, IPR is still running a sale at: https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/Onyx-Path-Publishing/ We also chatted about having a day tomorrow of Developer Town Halls, which have worked so well throughout the last year to keep our devs more connected with our company and vice versa, so please let me know if you have any questions for the Devs and I’ll pass them along! Beyond that, we’d really like to have 2021 be a fresh start after 2020, as we know so many people do around the world, so we’re examining a lot of what worked to get us through 2020 and what we can do better with heading into 2021. We figure it’s better to try and set a few things in motion throughout December than try and cram things into January all at once. After all that 2020 threw at us all, we’re all still traveling to: Many Worlds, One Path! Blurbs! Kickstarter! Dead Man’s Rust for Scarred Lands Kickstarter funded yesterday, and thanks to all of you who backed it! If you haven’t heard, though, Dead Man’s Rust is the most blood-spraying, face-melting, ass-kicking, heart-wrenching, undead-filled, heavy-metal pile of awesomeness ever conceived of for the fifth edition of the world’s most popular role-playing game! As of this writing we are only three hundred dollars away from achieving the first Stretch Goal: VTT Tokens & Map Pack: Journey to Broadreach Horizon – Digital assets will be created to support online play for 1-2 encounters in Dead Man’s Rust, including location maps and necessary character and creature tokens. All backers receiving the Dead Man’s Rust PDF will automatically have this digital pack added to their rewards list. You can check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/339646881/dead-mans-rust-a-mega-adventure-for-scarred-lands-5e Onyx Path Media!

  2. Hi all, Matthew Dawkins here again! Time for another community content spotlight for They Came from Beneath the Sea!. Please consider creating your own content and adding it to the Storypath Nexus. It’s easy to do and all the templates are there for you to use. Today we take a look at the impressive Drenched Heroes and Waterlogged Horrors, which is a decent-sized community content product at 14 pages, containing a plethora of interesting (and amusing) playable characters and antagonists for use in your game, including such heroes as Russian defector, Aleks Koshkin (can he be trusted?) and Larry Lawrence, enemy of the fishmen, through to the sticky and disgusting humid hideout non-human prison and the chilling (or actually rather tepid) Water That Thinks! There’s even more besides, and we recommend you download yourself a copy so you can take a look. Please consider creating some content yourself and putting it on sale!
  3. Hello! Travis Legge here to talk about some of the new Slarecian Vault content recently released to support Frostlands of Fenrilik! Today I’d like to focus on Curious Creatures of the Frostlands by Chad Lensch. This book offers six new creatures for use in Fenrilik which range from the absolutely adorable to the truly terrifying. Each creature is presented with a touch of lore that is wonderfully flavorful and keeps in step with the setting. Mechanically each offering is solid and could easily be adapted to any arctic 5e setting or environment. The cover price offers great value for your money, and the quality of the pdf layout and artwork is great. Whether you want to surprise your players with a swarm of fuzzballs, confound them as they encounter a Fenrilik ooze, or terrify them in a surprise encounter with a drift lurker, this book has your bases covered. I thought the drift lurker was a particular standout creature, as its ability to generate heat internally makes it a creature that adventurers might hunt for simple survival. Each creature’s description includes similar story seeds which the game master can use to work these creatures into their own stories. I highly recommend Curious Creatures of the Frostlands, both as a mini-bestiary and as a stellar example of what can be done for Fenrilik at the Slarecian Vault! Grab yourself a copy today and be inspired!

  9. By Sarah L. Stewart You can make people or things for your players to interact with in 5e in several ways: monsters / creatures, non-player characters (or NPCs, which in 5E are more like monsters), and NPC stat blocks. NPC stat blocks are generic character builds you can apply to any humanoid character, either directly or as a template. I’ve been GMing some edition of D&D for over twenty years and have created a lot of custom content for my own use. However, creating NPCs for 5th Edition D&D is a little tricker than some previous editions (especially if you want to publish them) so I’m going to describe here how I made a humanoid NPC stat block for Frostlands of Fenrilik. When writing a D&D 5e publication for the Slarecian Vault, we’re only allowed to reference or include outside resources that are part of the Open Game License (or OGL): the System Reference Document for D&D 5th Edition (published by Wizards of the Coast), and official Scarred Lands publications like the Scarred Lands Player Guide for 5e OGL, Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad, and Vigil Watch (all published by Onyx Path), plus other Slarecian Vault content that Onyx Path has given permission to reference. While that gives us a lot of material from the Scarred Lands, it’s a surprisingly small amount from Wizards of the Coast, particularly monsters and NPCs. The 5e OGL includes 21 different NPC stat blocks we can reference in publications. That sounds like a lot, but when you think about the numerous people a party encounters, the variety of backgrounds they can have, and the range of challenge ratings (CRs) a GM needs, 21 doesn’t go very far. And while there are many other NPCs in other D&D publications, we can’t reference or copy anything that isn’t covered in the SRD / OGL. Every NPC mentioned in Frostlands of Fenrilik needed a class. I had two choices. One, make everyone a commoner (repetitive and boring) or two, find a class that has the characteristics or CR that I want, regardless of whether it fits the character. For example, why did we make an innkeeper a spy? Not because they’re actually “spying” on the PCs, but because we wanted to make them “roguish” and be at least a CR 1. In my frustration, I made a couple of custom NPC stat blocks for Frostlands to add some variety to my NPCs. The one I’ll break down is a type of ranger (none of the OGL NPC stat blocks are ranger types) to act as a potential wilderness guide or survivalist on the frosty tundra. Summary of the Process I follow this basic process when I’m making custom NPCs. Note that if you’re planning to publish your creation, it’s also really important to look at and follow the formatting, language, and terms of existing style guides. Matching up to that makes your content easier to use and looks more professional. Choose your concept for the character class. I usually base mine on an existing player character class and appropriate level. Decide the character’s stats: If the character’s CR is less than one, I select low basic stats: mostly 10s and 11s, with one or two 14s in their primary stats, and an 8 in their least important. If the CR is between one to four, I use the standard array (8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15) or a point-buy equivalent. If the CR is five or higher, I usually choose whatever scores seem appropriate, balancing the high ones with a few low to keep things interesting. I try to keep all stats at 20 or lower unless I need a CR 15 or higher. Note: I may review and adjust key stats later to meet the requirements for a specific challenge rating. “Roll up” the character based on the class and level I chose. To keep the overall stat block short and easy to use, I simplify any class-based special abilities, being sure to maintain the proper “language” and formatting. For instance, if I want my ranger to have an animal companion, I don’t include the rules for generating one, I just say they have a wolf. I swap out any abilities that don’t make sense for my concept for a more appropriate ability from a different class at a similar level. When making a custom sea captain, for example, I took the bandit captain NPC stat block and added a modified version of the knight class’s special leadership ability. Run what I have so far through the “Monster Statistics by Challenge Rating” table found in the 5e Dungeon Master’s Guide (DMG) to determine the CR. Add hit dice and make other adjustments as needed to reach the CR I want the character to be. An NPC’s proficiency bonus is determined by the character’s CR, not Hit Dice, class level, caster level, etc. Reduce hit dice if there are two or more resistances and immunities per the “Effective Hit Points” table in the DMG. That’s my process. There are certainly other processes out there (and if you know a better one please, share it with me), but what I came up with seems to work for me. The First Four Steps For my Frostlands NPC stat block I chose ranger as my base, and 7th level because rangers get an archetype feature at that level and I wanted my NPC to use the special new one that one of my co-writers had created for Frostlands. At 7th level, the character will likely be at least CR5, so I chose stats close to the standard array, with a 16 in Dexterity, 14 in Strength and Wisdom, and 10-12 in the rest. Next, I used these stats to roll up a basic 7th level ranger with no race / species or background information. I selected two-weapon fighting for their fighting style to make it easiest to run, as it conveniently makes the damage for all their attacks the same. I chose the arctic as their favored terrain (obvious for Frostlands) but couldn’t decide on a favored enemy yet. I picked out spells. Hunter’s mark is always a good for a 5e ranger. I also selected a couple of healing spells, since I intend this class mostly for friendly NPCs, not enemies. It’s always handy to have a healer available. I finished the list with some common, but not overly complicated, spells. Finally, I gave them appropriate abilities for the new archetype. One of these new abilities does extra damage a number of times per short or long rest equal to their Wisdom modifier. As a GM I already have to track spell slots; I hate having to track how many times an NPC has used an ability, particularly if it recharges when they’ve rested (which isn’t standard language for an NPC, either). I have a few other options I could use, like adding a recharge to the ability (i.e. roll a d6 and on a 5 or 6 the ability recharges). However, in my experience most combat encounters (not counting epic battles) last an average of three rounds. Rather than giving the ability a recharge, I decided to make it a standard amount of damage they could add to one attack per turn, dumping the other restrictions. That leaves one less thing to keep track of, and a little extra consistent damage per turn will actually help with the next step. As I had a limited number of words available for the class’s stat block (and I was already technically over), I decided to drop favored enemies too. I couldn’t decide on one, it was a long description, and it’s another thing for the GM to track and potentially forget about. It also makes up a little for that extra damage they do each round. If a GM decides the NPC needs a favored enemy, they can add one themselves. Next, I added weapons and armor. Then I calculated attacks, damage, and armor class, and made sure everything else was properly filled out. To be continued…
  10. Now available in PDF and print from DriveThruRPG: Sunken Bones for Pirates of Pugmire! Storms regularly sweep through the Acid Sea, and they seem to rise up at the worst possible time. Dalmatian Cove is a known, but hidden, location where those harsh storms frequently sweep ships. Explore the cove and meet its residents in this adventure fraught with danger and opportunities for a hardy band of scallywags. Sunken Bones is a story for fourth to fifth level characters, in which your crew will lose your ship to a natural disaster and then bargain for the resources to recover it. The Graveyard is one of the most dangerous places in Dalmatian Cove, but it isnít the only risky element at play. This story also provides opportunities for building relationships with key figures who make Dalmatian Cove their home and assists in uncovering some of their secrets. This adventure is designed to be run as part of the Going on the Account chronicle detailed in Pirates of Pugmire. It is set after The Race and before Heart of the Storm. However, it is possible to run this adventure completely independently of those stories. Also: The Pirates of Pugmire Guide Screen in PDF! Pirates of Pugmire Desktop Wallpaper in image format!

  11. Ghost Hunting, I say, Ghost Hunting, that is! TOMORROW! At 2pm Eastern US time, the WoD: Ghost Hunters Deluxe 20th Anniversary Edition Kickstarter carefully enters the fray! Probably wearing those low-light goggles geared up for ectoplasm. I’ve mentioned before, but I think it bears repeating, this is the first book we’ve done that is for the WoD 20th Anniversary Editions but not specifically from one of the game lines. More generally useful, like the old-school “A World of Darkness” black border books. So we don’t know how well this KS will go as support isn’t just because we’re doing a new book for a long-cherished game line, especially with the short notice we’re stuck with giving people! Everyone’s support will be hugely appreciated! More Stuff We’re Doing! And went over in the Monday Meeting today! First up, we’re trying something different with our Scarred Lands Community Content. Which is not unusual, we’re always experimenting with different approaches and methods towards our projects and our community. In this case, we are offering almost an entire continent in the Scarred Lands setting for Community Content creators to fill in with their own projects. Basically, we’re going to sketch in a few areas and important stuff creators need to work with, and then let folks publish their ideas for this section of the world on the Slarecian Vault Community Content site for Scarred Lands. We’re hoping it’ll be a lot of fun, and that creators will start to bounce ideas off of one another and play off each others’ ideas. We’ll see how it goes. Meanwhile, who better than the project originator and coordinator, Travis (Pegge) Legge to describe the Frostlands of Fenrilik project: Frostlands of Fenrilik expands the world of Scarred Lands 5e by introducing a new continent on which to stage your adventures! This vast land is dangerous and untamed, with deadly titanspawn and a perilous climate that challenges even the heartiest travelers. It is also a land of mystery, wonder, and opportunity. Secrets and treasures can be found hidden beneath the ice, and an underground network of caves and tunnel holds the potential for grand adventure and grander reward. Creators at the Slarecian Vault will find ample opportunity to expand, define, and explore the Roof of the World. Frostlands of Fenrilik is littered with hooks and prompts for creators to build their own adventures, settlements, and creatures. The subterranean element introduced in Frostlands of Fenrilik allows for adventures that move back and forth between geothermal caverns ripe for development to the icy surface and the challenges that await adventurers there. Enterprising creators might define whole sections of this cavernous realm, making them their own. Do not let the focus on Community Content creation fool you though! The hooks, environments, and creatures presented in this book provide ample material for a Game Master to pick up and play, including an adventure that introduces the city of Kovokimru, takes the party to a new frontier as they explore the Tobor Gorge, introduces a new playable people in the form of the Krampek, and gives the adventurers their first introduction to one of the greatest threats the people of Fenrilik face: the monstrous Skerrai! Great care was taken while crafting Frostlands of Fenrilik to ensure utility for Slarecian Vault creators as well as Scarred Lands players and Game Masters. There is truly something for everyone within this volume. We cannot wait to see what the community builds with this tool set! TC: Aberrant art by Steve Ellis One more reminder that myself, Dixie, Eddy, and maybe even Matthew “It’s late in the UK, dammit” Dawkins, will be on a “What’s Up With Onyx Path?” panel at Save Against Fear Virtual Con this Friday, the 9th, at 4pm Eastern US time! https://www.thebodhanagroup.org/about-the-convention Dixie is on an additional five panels and a game, Eddy is on three or four other panels, and Travis is running three games for us during the con – and other folks are also running our games, too! So if you’ve been a bit leery of trying out online gaming, this is a low-stress way to start, and it’s for a great cause: our friends at the Bodhana Group who are one of the world’s leading advocates for the use of tabletop gaming for therapy! Sort of along the same lines, we’re running two of our Developer Town Halls tomorrow, where we open up the floor to our many developers and we go over their concerns and trials and triumphs. We’ve been doing these all during the pandemic just to provide another venue for our folks to get some face-to-face time with the Onyx Path in-house crew, but also with their fellow devs. If you have any questions or comments you’d like me to share with our developers, please go ahead and put them in the blog comments below! Let the Streets Run Red art by Glenn Osterberger Another thing you can comment on, if you want to, comes out of the idea that we think it would be helpful to send out an Onyx Path Survey for our community. It’s been an… unusual… year, and we’ve weathered the many storms and have put out some great projects this year and really built up our online presence, but we didn’t get to a bunch of the stuff we thought we would when the crew met last January. We’re going to need to re-calibrate, for sure, as we approach the last few months of 2020, so we’re thinking some direct input from all of you might be really helpful. I mean, besides the direct “you suck!” kind! So before we set one up and get it out with the kinds of questions we think we need to ask, we’d love to hear from any of you that have ideas for what we should put in the survey. Even what kind of survey as I know a lot of people have strong opinions on length and format. As always, just drop them right here in the Comments. After all, we might make our many delightful, dark, and dramatic game worlds, but you folks are an important part of our: Many Worlds, One Path! Blurbs! Kickstarter!
