  3. Due to circumstances outside our control, we unfortunately have to postpone the launch of the Squeaks in the Deep Kickstarter, originally planned for today at 2pm Eastern Time. Once we’ve finally gotten the okay from the KS team, we’ll launch the campaign, so please stay tuned for an update!
  4. And MICE, too! Of course, I’m referring to our newest Realms of Pugmire book: Squeaks in the Deep, going live on Kickstarter on Friday, July 9th, at 2pm EDT! Squeaks is going to cover playable uplifted mice and rats, just like the dogs and cats (and birds and reptiles) we’ve covered already in the Realms of Pugmire books. Much like the dogs and cats, they are struggling to survive in a world after humans have disappeared. In the world that existed before Pugmire, they had a very different relationship with mankind, with many of their ancestors having been test-subjects in human labs rather than pets, and this informs their overall world-view – as well as their thoughts concerning humankind. It also means that some of them have strange powers not present in the other uplifted species which may be the results of those long ago experiments. Additionally, their civilization is more connected to the underground remains of human habitation, as well as other secret ways within the bowels of the earth. And beneath the city of Pugmire! Squeaks in the Deep art by Pat Loboyko Now, on a meta-level: here come the mice and rats! We all know that those three go together! The third of the classic triumvirate of dogs, cats, and mice that we have already touched on with the Cult of Laba-Tor – but now all three are playable. In fact, you can play Squeaks in the Deep using either Pugmire or Monarchies of Mau as your core rulebook. So if you want to explore the archetypical cat vs mouse relationship without throwing in more complications with the dogs, you can stick with Mau and Squeaks. Plus, we really wanted to push the idea that all the civilizations that came before could have structures under the ground to adventure in, thus providing a classic D&D gaming experience of dungeon-delving. It’s something that was always a part of the Realms of Pugmire experience, but with this book, Eddy and company bring it to the forefront! And since it’s Realms of Pugmire, that experience isn’t focused on some sort of grave-robbing experience, but on discovery and exploration of those areas and maybe, just maybe, finding out more about the mysterious humans who left everyone alone in a world they never made. (That’s a 1960-80s Marvel Comics bit of cover phraseology that I always wanted to use. “Fighting for their life, in a world they never made!” What does that even mean?) Under Alien Skies art by Gregor Pedrycz If you’ve caught any of Eddy’s interviews about Squeaks, then it’s no secret when I say that he is really interested in the mega-dungeon experience where you explore an underground complex, natural or man-made or both, that is expansive enough for weeks of fun adventures. As a long-time D&D player – which everybody knows I am after putting out the first part of my long-time D&D world in the Peoples of the Crossroads Continent book, available on DTRPG – I’m with Eddy on wanting to give players a chance with Squeaks in the Deep to really explore that dungeon crawl kind of adventure. This sure seems like the perfect book to do that with! I was surprised, though, when Eddy let me know that he was also going to bring another old-school aspect into Squeaks in the Deep and allow the rats and mice to use Psionic powers! This has always been a part of D&D (since Eldritch Wizardry, the sixth lil’ pamphlet book?) and has been attempted with each edition of the game. Yet, I really think you are going to find Eddy‘s implementation of Psionics and how they fit into Pugmire to be an awesome and fresh addition to your games! Which you’ll be able to read yourselves by pledging to the Kickstarter and reviewing your backer sections of the text! As is our practice with our Kickstarters, we give out a section of the text one or twice a week to backers, and by the time the KS is over, backers can review pretty much all of the finished text and choose whether they want to continuing backing, raise their pledge, or drop out entirely. We are good any way that goes. It’s sort of like a beta-release. Looking forward to seeing you at the Kickstarter on Friday! Legendlore art by Gunship Revolution We Also Had A Meeting Today & It Went Like This: First, thanks to Dixie for picking up the MMN Blog last week! She did a great job and please let me know if I missed anything from last week’s Progress Report after trying to reconcile my last post, Dixie’s, and our reports from Mirthful Mike and Eddy today. Dixie noted, and I’d like to underline, the Pre-Order we are doing on DTRPG for Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick for M20. The is the first time we’re doing a pre-order on DTRPG, so it’s a bit of an experiment to see if folks would like to be able to lock in a PDF of a book when they see it and then receive the link as soon as it is available, without them needing to follow up. If it works for enough people, then we’ll consider it for other projects that aren’t being crowd-funded or which came out of KSs. Another aspect of the M20 Rich Bastard’s Pre-Order that we discussed today are some of the questions we’ve received. Like: “Why are you doing this?” Well, the answer in its simplest form must be “Why not?”. The ability of DTRPG to handle PoD pre-orders is something we’re interested in trying out, other companies certainly do it, so why not do so ourselves? “But, won’t that screw up the book’s ranking on DTRPG?” – not to my knowledge, nor that of our DTRPG experts who really do understand how the site works. But, sincere thanks for being concerned for us and looking out so we don’t get screwed out of something by the new system. We really do appreciate it. Another question was “Will there be a PoD version?” – yes, if a Pod version is possible for one of our projects, we are doing a PoD version! A thousand times, this! “But won’t the Pre-Order screw up the PoD bundle?” Nope, should function the same as we have been doing Advance PDFs and then the joint PoD bundles. Been doing that for years and years, now. This’ll work pretty much the same as it’s only the time before release that is affected by the pre-order process, not the release and afterwards. Speaking of PoDs, I’m so glad my warning folks about the July 1 Premium PoD price increase combined with DTRPG‘s across-the-site PoD sale really seemed to give a lot of people a chance to pick up Premium PoD versions of their favorite books before the increase occurred! A LOT of you jumped in on that one! Speaking of July 1st, some of you may already have noticed that our V5 books are no longer listed on our Onyx Path Drive-Thru page. As was announced months ago, Renegade was signed on by Paradox as the folks who will coordinate and manage all V5 sales, both online and in-store, and our V5 book listings have been moved over to their part of DTRPG as part of that. From here on in, no matter who creates an official V5 book, it’ll go up for sale via Renegade – so keep an eye out over there for all of our current and future V5 projects! (This deal in no way impacts our CofD, Exalted, or 20th Anniversary projects, just V5.) (In case you were worried). Legendlore art by Nate Pride And speaking of Vampire: The Masquerade, I highlight that it is VtM‘s 30th anniversary below in the Reason To Celebrate, but I think it’s worth bringing up here as well (as we certainly did so during the meeting today). The response to VtM thirty years ago really starting the whole thing for White Wolf. Up until then, we had small successes with TTRPG material, and White Wolf Magazine, but it was a whole new ballgame after VtM got into people’s hands and they started playing. On a personal level, the success of VtM enabled Stew Wieck to afford to bring me on staff and move me down to the WW offices in Atlanta. It propelled forward all of the WoD game lines in multiple editions, Trinity, Exalted, Street Fighter (!), and all the projects that came after. Ultimately, from that spark came the creative connections, knowledge, and energy that allowed me create Onyx Path. So it a sense, it’s been 30 years of: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! Our next Kickstarter coming up will be Squeaks In the Deep, for Realms of Pugmire! Check it out Friday, July 9th, at 2:00 pm EDT! Rats and mice join the world as player characters!

VtM’s success was like nothing the White Wolf crew had ever seen, and several months later it had continued to explode sufficiently that Stewart Wieck was sure that finally we were seeing the level of interest that could propel and sustain a company – and would enable WW to fulfill the promise made in the back of VtM to create a new horror game line per year. (Daddy made a lot of crazy promises, kids!) Stewart was not wrong!
  5. Now available in PDF from DriveThruRPG: Storypath Tasty Bit: Les Fantômes for the Trinity Continuum! Eight years ago, the organization known as Les Fantômes (the Ghosts) exploded onto the crime scene with one of the largest heists and ransoming events the world had seen in decades. Claiming responsibility for first stealing, then ransoming, the Du Martin family diamonds, the organization was set to gain millions from the family. When the news broke that the Du Martin family had been engaged in insider trading, embezzlement, and stock fraud within family-owned businesses, Les Fantômes claimed ownership over leaking the information. Since that time, Les Fantômes has become synonymous with high-profile theft and people at the top of government watch lists. They are not quiet about their ongoings, and one would believe at times they wish to get caught. Despite that, no one seems to know where Les Fantômes will strike next, or who is involved in the organization. Now you can portray one of these enigmatic thieves-with-a-heart-of-gold in Trinity Continuum. This PDF expands on the material presented in the Trinity Continuum Core Rulebook, including new Edges and Gifts, as well as rules to help Storyguides manage and organize heists. This PDF is part of the “Storypath Tasty Bits” program, where every month in 2021 Onyx Path offers a small product that ties into one of its Storypath games. Check in every month to see what’s coming next! Also: The Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick for Mage 20th Anniversary Edition is now available for pre-order! DriveThruRPG is introducing a new preorder system, and the Rich Bastard’s Guide is one of the first entries available through it.

  6. Yes, as hard as it is to believe, we are 3 days away from the end of the Exalted: Essence Kickstarter! What a fantastic ride it has been! Starting with it breaking our record for fasted funded KS project, right through to achieving something like twenty-seven Stretch Goals so far, and with it steadily rising every darn day, it has been great! What’s important to me about this is two-fold. The first is that we are actually making a version of Exalted that allows for a much simpler and quicker entry into the extremely deep pool that is Exalted lore, and the second being that we’ll be able to overprint this book’s print-run and get copies into stores! Not because of all the much money we’ll make by putting it into your Friendly Local Game Store – although that is obviously very much appreciated – but because we’ll be exposing a potential new audience to Exalted 3rd Edition for the first time. That’s a Very Good Thing. Again, as we’ve stated since the book was announced, it’s there to enrich and enable Exalted 3rd, not replace it. Some experienced folks may find they prefer the Essence system, and that’s cool if it allows folks to play Exalted 3rd more easily, but I’m betting they are still going to pull from their Ex3 books as well. That’s as intended. M20 Rich Bastards’ art by Emmanuel Desiati Exalted: Essence is there to help everyone enjoy EX3 more: experienced Exalted fans and folks new to the game line, alike! Because ExEss is not a new edition of Exalted. This is why not every Charm is in there, or every special ability or nuance of a particular kind of Exalted. It’s why we didn’t include the other types of possible PCs, or even NPCs, in this book – they aren’t part of getting people able to play Exalted. And they are still in EX3, if not in this book. I mean, if we had included everything I’ve seen fans ask about, we’d be back to a massive book like EX3. So pretty much the opposite of our design goals with Essence. So, please, if you haven’t checked it out yet, we’re releasing the last section tomorrow, and that will mean that every backer has the whole text at that point – a great chance to jump right in here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/exalted-essence-tabletop-roleplaying-game They Came From Beyond the Grave! art by Durwin Talon Today’s Seemingly Unending Meeting: Actually, it wasn’t bad at all, but we did have some catching up to do. So, here’s a snapshot: Of course, we discussed the Exalted: Essence KS and how it has been doing and where it could end up. But we also reviewed a list of KSs I compiled last week that takes us through the year. So many cool projects, and it is very tough to decide which ones go to Kickstarter and when. But we think we have a good mix and a list that actually goes right into 2022, so keep an eye open for what’s next each week in the Kickstarter section below! We also are throwing around ideas for some different sorts of projects that could utilize our Indiegogo account, as well as an entirely different sales option that you’ll hear more about next week! If you’d like to hear more about our previous or current Kickstarter plans, and why we do them the way we do, the Onyx Pathcast that goes live this Friday features an interview with James Bell, our renowned “Kickstarter Concierge”. He gets a lot of well-earned appreciation for the smooth and friendly way he has run our KSs for these last several years, and he has plenty of thoughts to share. I hope they touch on James’ great love and knowledge of TTRPGs, as there’s a heck of a lot more to the guy than his amazing KS aptitude. A gamer for life, he was co-host of the Nerd Tangent podcast for several years, a founding member of the legendary d20 RPG company Fiery Dragon, and one of my favorite GenCon chums. He is also one of the funniest people I’ve ever hung out with, although I dunno if his best material will come across on the Pathcast. From there, we discussed conventions. Specifically our comfort level with actual, physical, in-the-real-world, conventions. My take since Covid began was that there was no way I was going to order or coerce anybody to physically attend anything until they felt OK with it. I think we are close, but we’re all a bit wary for a variety of reasons. So no physical conventions this year is where we are – but as Eddy mentioned, things are changing fast, so we’ll be watching and adjusting if it makes sense further on. M20 Rich Bastards’ art by Michael Gaydos If you remember from weeks (months?) ago, we talked about Dixie looking for more editors? Well, she has outdone herself and more than doubled the number of editors we now have available to us. In the months to come, we should see that big list of projects in Editing, below, get processed through as her team does their magic! Also, another “if you remember” thing I mentioned a couple of weeks ago about the price of Premium Print on Demand (PoD) books skyrocketing on DTRPG that will be happening July 1st. Like I noted last time, this is an across the board price increase mandated by the printers. It looks like DTRPG is going to be running a site-wide sale for a limited time with all Premium Color PoD books discounted by 25% or so, starting as early as tomorrow! It’s a surprise to us, but hopefully a happy one for everyone, and obviously it’ll be done before July 1st (as we don’t have the details on just when it runs, yet). In general, folks, I think we should all expect rising prices for our purchases across the board as the fall-out from Covid continues to affect how things are made and shipped. We don’t currently have any projects that were created in China, for an example in our industry, but the number of other TTRPG companies who have seen their projects held up by months and months because of limited shipping space and tripling or more of shipping prices is pretty scary. Even we have seen our printers starting to raise prices, although not too dramatically – knock wood – so far! Our problems are more in the difficulties our printers and shippers have been having with reduced staff and getting things done and out in a timely manner. Yet, after saying all that, I’m going to give some great news, timing-wise! V5 Trails of Ash and Bone has hit pretty much every early milestone it could these last couple of months, including a fantastic turn-around by the approvals folks at Paradox so that we could release the Backer PDF during our Onyx Path Virtual Con, and we are actually going to be able to release the PDF and PoD this Wednesday! Sometimes, just sometimes, everything clicks just right! And when it does, we get to push forward a project that really enriches our: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! The Exalted: Essence KS has three more days to go! We are headed to 3500 backers so far – and there are more great Stretch Goals still to come! 27 Stretch Goal rewards have been achieved so far, including unlocking the Exalted: Essence Screen, Charm Cards, enabling a partnership with NerdieKeppie to create Ex:Essence merchandise like book bags, two Exalted: Essence Novellas, two parts of an epic scenario Adventure Book, a Jumpstart and Ready-Made Characters to get started with Essence, and the Exalted: Essence Companion already has sixteen sections that will be combined into one PDF free for backers, and more great Stretch goal rewards to come!

Scars of the Divine War, which ended less than 200 years ago, have still not healed. One such scar is the Chasm of Flies, a rent in the earth created when the titan Spiragos the Ambusher was smote down by one of the young gods, Vangal the Ravager. Now, the Chasm is inhabited by spider-eye goblins and their spider allies, but it is also thought to be the resting place of powerful artifacts from that elder age.

  11. Type: NewsBanner: Text: Two of the biggest names in gaming team up for the annual star-studded adventure streaming on all G4 and Dungeons & Dragons digital platforms this Summer This powerful fellowship will continue with a special four-part limited-series premiering on G4 later this year I've maxed my Charisma stat in an attempt to appropriately convey how excited you should be! Los Angeles—May 5, 2021: This morning I rolled a critical success on a d20, valiantly earning the right to announce Wizards of the Coast and G4 are partnering for D&D Live 2021, a special two-day streaming event on July 16-17 and continuing with four all-new limited-run campaign series to premiere on G4 this Fall. "D&D Live 2021 is going to be an innovative event with new forms of interactivity for a live streaming audience and the perfect D&D introduction for new audiences," said Brian Terwilliger, 12th level VP of Programming and Creative Strategy at G4. "We're thrilled to partner with Wizards of the Coast to give fans adventure, comedy, and an incredibly entertaining journey into the theater of the mind." "D&D Live has been such an exciting event for both fans and Wizards, and it's amazing how it has grown each year. In 2021, we are expanding D&D Live's impact by partnering with G4," said Nathan Stewart, Level 20 Wizard of the Coast, Head of Franchise. "With G4 joining our party, we aim to bring even more fans to Dungeons & Dragons by showcasing friends adventuring together.” D&D Live 2021 will take place on the 16th and 17th of Flamerule (which is equivalent to "July" in the Forgotten Realms calendar in case you were rusty). The two-day event will feature four games with star-studded casts playing with expert DMs, as well as hosted content featuring games, interviews, special product announcements, a Dungeon Master roundtable, and exclusive giveaways for those with high enough INT rolls. The timing and casts will be announced soon, and my halfling rogue is always good to go in case they need backups. This alignment—which I'd totally call Chaotic Good—will continue through G4's official launch later this year as the two brands party up for a limited series premiering after the network's launch. The series will follow four campaigns with a mix of G4 talent, veteran D&D players, and celebrities for a new generation of D&D fans. "As we continue to interact with our audience leading up to the launch of the network, one of the most resounding requests was for tabletop gaming content," said Kevin Sabbe, Head of Content, G4, who looks great in a hooded traveler's cloak, I must admit. "This partnership reinforces our focus on authentic gaming content that will entertain existing D&D fans and those new to the world of tabletop as well." The announcement comes as G4 continues its Epic April celebration, a classic G4 tradition where the network unveils an ogre's load of talent/programming announcements, summons big giveaways, and generally behaves like a dwarven berserker nine espressos in. Previous announcements include G4's partnership with WWE for a competition video game series, the return of the fan-favorite classic Ninja Warrior to the network, and the introduction of Alex "Goldenboy" Mendez and Kassem G as G4's newest cast members. Roll for excitement - nat 20! Sincerely, Phil “Philandraell” from the Marketing Guild About G4 G4, the next-generation network created for gamers, by gamers. Authentic to its legendary roots, G4 returns in 2021 with classic shows and brand-new original content driven by a passion to entertain, unite and inspire gaming's enthusiastic and diverse communities.

  14. You’ll be Superamalgamated! And you’ll be Superamalgamated! And you’ll be Superamalgamated, too! We’ll all be Superamalgamated! The original is a line used by Johnny (William Harper Littlejohn) – one of Doc Savage’s team of adventurers sometimes called the Fabulous Five – in the Doc Savage pulp novels. I admit to adding a little Oprah-style excitement to the above, though. Which, of course, brings us to: We’re heading towards finishing the second week of the Trinity Continuum: Adventure! Kickstarter and things are looking great! Thanks so much to all of you who have pledged and pushed us to achieve nine Stretch Goals when I write this, including two sets of Ready Made Character, a Jumpstart, and the start of both the TC: Adventure! Addendum companion book and Thrilling Tales which take the Tales of the Aeon Society radio drama and turns each chapter into a playable adventure! And we’re not even half-way over! In keeping with last week, I’d like to continue to try and touch a bit on why the pulp genre seems like such a rich genre for TTRPGs to me. It’s less about the time period in terms of aesthetics – although Art Deco buildings and zeppelins are very cool – or even the powers – although they really ran the gamut of powers if you look at all of the pulp novels that came out – and more the possibilities of that time. Could hypnotism “cloud men’s minds”? Could a city of intelligent gorillas be hidden by their advanced technology? Could a regular human, through daily scientific exercises, train up to the limits of human power? Could a “shock to the system” paralyze someone’s face and leave them able to mold their faces to impersonate evil-doers? We probably have some doubts about these things now, but then, in those novels, those things were possible. And if they were possible, that was enough to form the basis of flights of the imagination as evil-doers met the smashing fists and knock-out bullets of our heroes. (Or in the case of The Shadow, twin streams of deadly slugs from his matching .45s – he was The Shadow, after all). I showed you some actual pulp magazines from the 1930s last week, but I do keep referring to pulp novels this week. That’s because, with the advent of paperback books post-WW2, the pulp magazine stories were republished in paperback form. My copy of The Man of Bronze, the first Doc Savage story, has a 1964 copyright date. Hmmm, right around the start of the Marvel Age of comics which were greatly influenced by the pulps Stan Lee had read in his teenage years. These paperbacks extended into new generations an interest in the pulp genre, and it’s because of them that we first published Adventure! and now TC: Adventure!. How is that, you ask? As a picture is worth a thousand words: Rich’s inherited pulp paperbacks. I’ve added to the collection over the years, but the core was dozens of paperbacks amassed by my grandfather, a pipe-coverer who liked to read thrilling adventures during his lunch breaks and always had a paperback in his lunch pail. There were a crap-ton of Doc Savage novels, and a hefty bunch of a less-successful pulp series called The Avenger, and their dramatic covers fascinated me as a child, while their exploits thrilled me as a young teen. It was from them that I back-tracked to The Shadow, and eventually sideways into Weird Tales, and Conan, etc. What was great for TTRPGs is that both of the series my grandfather collected featured pulp hero groups that often propelled the story as much as the main lead character. It’s a lot easier to dial back that main character for TTRPGs (or make the leader a slightly bemused time traveler who isn’t always there) so that all the players are important, than with something like (sorry, Eddy) Sherlock Holmes’ stories. So, when I hear pulp, that’s what I think of. This generational treasure trove of wild ideas and adventures. And for those Adventure! fans out there, my grandfather never went on any safaris, but his name was Jack Tallon. Heirs of the Shogunate art by Gong Studios I mentioned throughout the M20 Victorian Age campaign on Indiegogo that the next stage of the efforts would be on BackerKit. Then we opened up the BK portion to be a continuation of the Indiegogo campaign so that folks who weren’t able to join there could still be involved as backers, and so the Stretch Goals could still be achieved. So, we’re almost ready and we’re looking forward to hearing from all of you who missed the campaign as the BackerKit “Pre-order store” will be up and running on WEDNESDAY – here’s the link: https://victorian-mage-ttrpg.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders M20 Technocracy Reloaded art by Gregor Pedrycz Our Superamalagorgeous Meeting! No big announcements this week, folks – sorry! But we did have plenty to talk about. Like everyone’s reaction to the Scion TV development announcement – which was fantastic, and much appreciated! Glad folks are excited about it and already theorizing on what it’ll be about. Hey, we don’t even know for sure yet! We just know it’s a long road still for our friends at J&K as they put together their pitch and start pitching! Here’s to us getting a home run! (Which I know is an inaccurate use of the metaphor, but all metaphors are true. That’s a saying, right?) Dixie wants me to let all of you know that she’s been thrilled to add several more editors to our team thanks to my mentioning us looking for them a few weeks ago, here on the MMN blog. So, that still goes: we are still looking to expand our editing crew. Apply on our website if you think it’s something you’d be great at! Sales-wise, we’re doing something this next week that I don’t think we’ve ever pulled off before, but we’re not afraid to dare the fates: it’s a triple-venue sale of Cavaliers of Mars books and the Screen at DTRPG, IPR (Indie Press Revolution), and Studio 2 all at the same time! Links below in the Sales area! M20 Technocracy Reloaded art by Pat McEvoy We did a bunch of discussing of our plans for the 2021 Onyx Path Virtual Convention coming in June. We have a tentative line-up of times for Actual Plays, demos, and panels, and now we’re looking at just what games should be featured. And for the panels, we have a few must-haves like What’s Up With Onyx Path?, but what other topics do we need to examine in the panels? If you folks have thoughts on what sort of panel topics you’d like to see, please do go ahead and give us your thoughts in the Comments below. No guarantees that your idea will be used, but we would rather put in the effort to pull a panel together that we know some of our audience is going to be into than to just roll with more of our usual silly banter! I mean, that’s gonna happen anyway! Thanks, and as always, we appreciate it each and every time you take the time to let us know what you think. After all, we’re all together in this wild quest to visit: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! The Trinity Continuum: Adventure! Kickstarter has been running a few days short of two weeks, and we have already achieved 9 Stretch Goals including two sets of Ready Made Characters and a Jumpstart, plus two chapters each of the TC: Adventure!

If you enjoyed classic games like Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption, you’re currently playing Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, or you’re looking forward to the upcoming Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife, there are some titles here for you!
