You think that because you’ve spent the night in a haunted house, seen a ghost or two, and participated in an exorcism, that makes you a bona fide paranormal investigator?

We’re going to show you how to bind and control the spirits of the dead. We’re going to give you access to a collection of tools and weapons you didn’t know existed. You want to investigate the paranormal? Now’s your final chance to turn away, before things get scary. The Paranormal Investigator’s Handbook includes: A toolkit of weapons and devices for use against all agents of the paranormal.Merits, Flaws, Numina, and Rituals for you to apply to your characters in the World of Darkness.A bestiary of monsters, cryptids, and supernatural threats, to add to your World of Darkness games.A selection of new orders and societies to which your characters might belong, or whom they might oppose.

  2. Today our spotlight shines on a superb actual play podcast dedicated to Exalted: Essence! Read on! The Spotlight Fatebreakers is a new actual play of Exalted: Essence that acts as a fantastic display of the kinds of characters, gameplay, and system use you can come to expect from Essence. What’s more, if you’re new to the game, this is a great on-boarding ramp for you to learn about it. If you want to give them a listen, you can find Fatebreakers over on YouTube or Podbean: https://fatebreakers.podbean.com/ The Video Round-Up If you’re not already following Onyx Path on YouTube and Twitch, now’s an ideal time to do so.

  3. http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/YiyhoungLi_Exigents.jpg Things are go, go, going here at Onyx Path central! Lots of project discussions today, along with some tomfoolery, which makes for a fun meeting even when we’re getting things done. So, let’s dive right into a heapin’ helpin’ of what we went over today in the Monday Lunch Meeting! Big news for Exalted fans, and something we’ve been working on finalizing for a couple of weeks, is that the Exalted: Exigents crowd-funding campaign is going to be on IndieGoGo starting on Tuesday, May 24th, at 2pm Eastern US time! You can go to the preview page right here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/exigents-out-of-the-ashes-for-exalted-3rd-edition/coming_soon/x/805340 http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Exigents-Ultra-Deluxe-Mockup-Indiegogo.pngDeluxe Exalted Exigents cover mockup. If you listened to the Onyx Pathcast’s Exalted roundtables last month, Episode 204 is specifically about Exigents, with Dixie interviewing developers Robert Vance and Elliott Freeman. If you’d like to know about what’s in the book, there is a lot of fantastic info there as well as their experiences on bringing the book together. As always, you can check out the Onyx Pathcast on most podcast venues or right on PodBean! We look forward to seeing everybody over on IndieGoGo next week! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/darkostojanovic_masksofthemythos.jpgMasks of the Mythos art by Darko Stojanovic Our May celebration of Scion continues as the 10th Anniversary Sale enters phase 2 this week! You can get the PDFs at DTRPG of the following Scion projects for 90% off – so, 10% of their normal price since it’s our 10th Anniversary: Mysteries of the World: The Scion Second Edition CompanionScion Second Edition Storyguide Screen PDFScion Live-ActionZeus! We Just Wanna Talk!Scion: Car CompetitionScion: Tales of Heroes – A Scion AnthologySo Now You’re A Hero Plus, our sales partners at IPR are holding a 50% sale of the Scion projects they sell for us (books, dice and screens) and you can check that out here: https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/Deals-and-Specials/ (There’s also a sale on Pugmire and other D&D 5e-based PDFs happening on DTRPG right now!) Continuing with our May Scion celebration, that rascal Neall Raemonn Price will be talking all things Scion with Eddy on this week’s Onyx Pathcast. As I mentioned in this very blog last week (or the week before?), Neall was involved with Scion 2e from very near the start of our planning the project, and ultimately took over the project’s development. So, what I’m saying, this should be a great interview! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Lee-OConnor_NovasWorldwide.jpgNovas Worldwide art by Lee O’Connor One of things we’re discussing more is running around to various Conventions around the world. Eddy is attending Momocon in Atlanta at the end of the month, Matthew is taking an Onyx Path crew up to Tabletop Scotland in August, and we’re still looking at what sort of appearances we can make at cons later this year. Plus, there are the virtual cons that are coming up soon, that we’re a lot more open to attending! The biggest and coming very soon for us – in less than a month, in fact, is our own Onyx Path Virtual Convention! Lots and lots of talk and planning for that! The panel and actual plays are still listed below in the Conventions section, so sign up now if you haven’t already! Because we want everybody to have the most fun, and that includes actually gaming, I’m again going to urge all you GMs out there to sign up to run games during the con. Remember, you get to charge for your game, and you’ll be keeping 50% of that amount – with the biggest chunk of the rest going to our designated charity! Don’t worry if you feel like that’s a lot to jump into – you’ll have tech help, and once you start running the game, those “GM muscles” will kick in. That’s not just words – I recently ran my first game on Roll20 and I got the hang of it pretty quickly! Just say “And what do you do?” and “Are you sure you want to do that?” a lot. Also, make them roll a lot of Perception or Awareness type checks – that always keeps the suspense ratcheted up! You’ll do great, so sign up to run your game! I was able to let our crew know that over the weekend I saw the third of our ads on the MST3K Gizmoplex event specials. The ads are a lot of fun, and it is really a kick to see our They Came From Beneath the Sea! book right there on the Satellite of Love in Jonah’s hands! They’re trying something pretty cool with the Gizmoplex, so if you’re already a fan, it’s worth trying out their new streaming site. And if you’re a They Came From fan, MST3K is a great place to pick up new Quips for your games. They have all the old shows plus they are rolling out the new season all this year! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Leblanc_TCFBTG3.jpgTales of Depravity! art by Brian LeBlanc Things got a little tense during our meeting today. I hesitate to say they got ugly, but… By the time you read this, the issue will be resolved one way or the other, but it appears that the two charity auction games during the SFWA con that are being run by Matthew and Eddy respectively have become a contest between our two team-members. Eddy came in all bitter and hurt (he might have been weepy, but it’s hard to tell as it’s a voice-only meeting) that his game was slightly less highly bid on than Matthew’s. It’s Pugmire folks – dogs and cats and all in armor and casting spells. Who wouldn’t love that? Well, apparently the people who want to play They Came From with Matthew. They were placing higher bids, and no doubt dropping amusing quips while they did so! When informed about this, Matthew seemed hard pressed to express sympathy or empathy with Eddy’s plight. Hopefully, this can all be resolved and not turn into some sort of ongoing feud that lasts for years… of… hilarity – as it was all in good fun! The theatrics, while they lasted, were so unlike either of them that it made everything even funnier. Like I mentioned at the start, the meeting was busy and fun. Which is a pretty good way to describe these: Ten Years, Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter/Crowdfunding! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Exigents-Pitch-Image.png Exalted: Exigents goes live on IndieGoGo on Tuesday, May 24th at 2pm Eastern US time!

Today’s Reason to Celebrate! Today, we’re celebrating a bunch of disparate Wikipedia entries (YAY!): 1532 – Sir Thomas More (the Man For All Seasons) resigns as Lord Chancellor of England. (This did not end well for him) 1568 – Mary, Queen of Scots, flees to England. (This will not end well for her). 1842 – The first major wagon train heading for the Pacific Northwest sets out on the Oregon Trail from Elm Grove, Missouri, with 100 pioneers. (And anyone who played the Oregon Trail games knows how well that turned out). 1866 – The United States Congress establishes the nickel. (This turned out just fine, phew!) 1888 – Nikola Tesla delivers a lecture describing the equipment which will allow efficient generation and use of alternating currents to transmit electric power over long distances. (Didn’t work out, Nik. Sorry. But we’ll be talking a lot more about Mr. Tesla and his work in a month or so…) 1920 – In Rome, Pope Benedict XV canonizes Joan of Arc. (Loved her in Bill & Ted). 1929 – In Hollywood, the first Academy Awards ceremony takes place. (A long time before the Slap Heard Round the World). 1951 – The first regularly scheduled transatlantic flights begin between Idlewild Airport (now John F Kennedy International Airport) in New York City and Heathrow Airport in London, operated by El Al Israel Airlines. (There’s a whole sociological thing about a shrinking world and all that, but let’s not get into that whole thing now. Yay for the planes!) 2005 – Kuwait permits women’s suffrage in a 35–23 National Assembly vote. (I’m not digging into this any further as I’m hoping this lets us end on an up-note). Hmm, kind of a meh day for celebrating. Let’s hear it for the nickel! View the full article

  6. Now available in PDF and print: Panopticon, a novella for Trinity Continuum: Aberrant! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Panopticon-Cover-200x300.jpeg Three months ago, Boston’s city defenders, the Bulwarks, met a tragic end. Two of their members died in a mysterious flash, and the third nova, Daystar, went missing. The head Directive intelligence agent on the case turned up dead a few weeks later, after sending his team a particularly cryptic communication. Now, operative Alina Vaughn and her cell race to finish the work their colleague started. Though it begins as a find-and-rescue op for Daystar, the deeper they dig, the more Alina has to wonder if the nova killed his teammates and is planning a catastrophic return to the spotlight. The operatives aren’t the only ones looking for him. Between his burgeoning cult and a local mobster on the rise, Alina’s cell will need to bring all their skills to bear to find Daystar first. http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/OPP10-Shirt-300x300.png Also available on RedBubble: OPP10 merch!

  8. http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/ScionCategory.jpg Last week, we looked back at the start of Scion. Now this week: how about we look at Scion 2e‘s start? [Wayne’s World-style wiggly screen-lines, doodle-lee-do, doodle-lee-do, doodle-lee-dooo] A bunch of our creators and I sat down and discussed Scion once the purchase of the IP from CCP went through, and it was obvious that folks had two big concerns. (These mapped to my impressions after years of reading designers and players commenting on the game). First, the system got really weird, really fast, and pretty much imploded at Demigod level. The second was that the “pop culture” take on the pantheons threw a bunch of the gods – and thus their scions – under the proverbial bus in terms of their actual mythology. The first creator to step up and express a desire to lead the charge for the new edition was our old WW buddy Joe Carriker, and Joe was very clear that he was far more into resolving the second concern, but agreed we needed a new system. This was all happening while I was talking to Ian Watson and the Trinity Continuum crew (some of which were also on Team Scion) about the demands on the system that they would need to reboot Trinity. This gave us our first goal for the new system: it needed to work as a system for regular mortals, and for Scion heroes, Trinity pulp heroes, Trinity Aeon psions, Scion demigods, Trinity Aberrants/Novas, and Scion gods. It needed to scale, essentially. The efforts by both teams to come up with the system finally got us close enough after multiple iterations that we could see we needed some real “system-heads” to take everything we learned and create the system to go with both the game lines. But the development of the Storypath System in total is a different story. For another day. Suffice to say, Team Scion had enough on their plates creating the Scion: Origin core book and the Scion: Hero core. These were bumpy times with the iterations of the new system not quite meshing into the development of those two books. In addition, Joe, after doing a great job shepherding both books and keeping abreast of the system issues, had to drop out of the project. Fortunately, a brash young designer on the team had been working very closely with Joe, and he was able to step up and take over the Scion book development responsibilities – and he was also much more of a systems-head. Of course, that red-headed terror was Neall Raemonn Price, and it would be Neall and a whole lot of extremely talented writers and designers that brought Scion 2e over the finish line. Which wasn’t very easy to accomplish either, and first, we had a Kickstarter campaign to launch. Now, I know folks in our community basically understand that crowd-funding campaigns are exhausting for the creators, even if only intellectually, but there’s no real way to describe the constant demands on your brains/psyche/emotions when you’re involved in a campaign. Plus, as in this case, the development of the game doesn’t halt during the campaign, even if the creators are only storing up things to do once the campaign is over. It’s a real…thing. http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/MicheleGiorgi_Demigod1.jpgScion: Demigod art by Michele Giorgi Let me leave our beloved dev and his writing team in the midst of their KS-induced exhausted limbo, for just a second, and I’ll move us sideways to another part of this process: the visuals. Mirthful Mike and I had decided early on that we’d be holding closely to the design established with the first edition books. This was to both provide a continuity linking two editions from two different publishers – a huge change between editions can be quite jarring for fans and make it harder for the community to adopt the new edition – and also because we really, really, liked what we did with the first edition visuals. But Mike needed to do changes regardless, because first edition only had a few color plates in it, the rest of the art was in black and white. So while we were upgrading to the full color we felt the market demanded, there were some tweaks to the visuals like borders and fonts and such. The one place I really wanted us to maintain continuity was in the cover art. Michael Komark’s majestic cover illustrations were some of the favorite ones I’d ever art directed, and we were immensely fortunate to be able to bring him back to do a fourth cover for Scion: Origin so that all of the core books would work together. (Also, after many years, I needed to go back and remember how the heck I illustrated the pantheon symbols to add in two more – which was great practice for all the new ones we’d be doing for the line!) So all that thinking came together, setting and system and art, for and during the Kickstarter campaign, and – releasing Neall and his gang from limbo – it was a corker. Lots of commentary, some controversy, but ultimately we came out of the KS with a lot of projects and comments to work on. And even more ultimately, we learned a lot of what not to do with both crowd-funding and the steps we take now to finish up a book after the KS. No way around it, some weird, unexpected, and unique problems arose as the team finished the book, and from that experience we revised several core processes – dev, proofing, editing, etc. – to prevent the slip-ups that occurred from happening again. Those systems had worked just fine up until then, but it only takes one time to cause problems we don’t want to repeat. And all credit to Neall, the actual errata that remained in those first two books was contained in about a page of corrections, and the problem did not reoccur. It took longer than we wanted – and freakin’ Covid didn’t help – but the line is rolling right along! Today, we have many new creators working on Scion 2e; Neall has stepped back from full-on development and Hiromi Cota has stepped forward into the (Nemean) lions’ den as lead developer. The Storypath System powers Scion 2e, the Trinity Continuum game lines, the They Came From…! line, and Dystopia Rising: Evolution. Our experiences with those games and how the System has been tweaked are giving us many ideas for just how well it has fulfilled those original design specs. Which give us even more ideas for what else we can do with it, how we can tweak it and polish it. We just released the Scion: Demigod backer PDF and are implementing their very helpful errata notes in preparation for the PoD and traditionally printed versions. Scion: God is moving forward more and more towards its own crowd-funding campaign, and we’ve expanded on the main four core books with some very meaty supplements, and by including new ways to play Scion with Scion: Dragon and Scion: Masks of the Mythos! It’s an epic time to enjoy Scion 2e! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/NikoPope_MasksoftheMythos.jpgScion: Masks of the Mythos art by Niko Pope Son of the Monday Meeting! (in 3D) OK, let’s snap back to the now and to the Monday Meeting. And its Notes. Soooo, speaking of crowdfunding. We have indeed, as I talked about last week, decided to do the crowdfunding for Exalted: Exigents on IndieGoGo rather than Kickstarter. We just can’t wait as long as we’ve been waiting to get the project out to you folks. We need to rock and roll, so to Indie we Go Go! Let me repeat that we’ll be using the all or nothing funding method where you are charged during the campaign, but if it fails to hit the funding goal: you get that money back. Yes, you are refunded your pledge because the campaign failed to fund. That is how it works, and that’s how we’ve set it up with IndieGoGo. Watch out for folks saying you won’t get refunded if the campaign doesn’t fund. Not true. But do be aware that this is not Kickstarter and any assumptions based on how you might have done it on Kickstarter may, or may not, be accurate. Best to read through James’ notes and Updates, and please do message him if you have any questions. And then we’ll roll the campaign into Backer Kit just like we have with KS, so that part is as folks are used to. We’re starting to move into high gear with our third Onyx Path Virtual Convention in June. This Wednesday, we’ll open up the ordering for 10th Anniversary merchandise for any of you that might want to order and receive it to wear and use during the Convention. Our crew will be, so join the fun! Down below, in the Convention section, I’ve included graphics that show our panel schedules. As we get closer, we should have more info to share about just what we’ll be featuring during those panels – so please keep an eye out for info and changes! And yes, in answer to some of the questions folks have sent me, we are still looking for GMs to run games for the Convention. Also yes, you can charge for the game, and as the GM you’ll receive 50% of those funds for the effort you’re making and the fun you’re providing to your players! (Plus the Bodhana Group gets 40% as our chosen charity again this year, so it’s for a great cause). http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/NicholasPhillips_Dragon.jpgScion: Dragon art by Nicholas Phillips 10th Anniversary-wise, our May Scion Sale continues this week, and then we’ll have another sale for the second batch of Scion 2e projects at 10% listed price, so please do check it out now while you can! Plus, even more for Scion month! The Onyx Pathcast has produced a new classic two-parter all about Scion 2e with Matthew and Hiromi. The first part went live last Friday and already has folks talking all over the internet! The second half arrives this coming Friday and there’s no telling what secrets and surprises may be revealed as they dive even deeper into The World! Finally, Travis Legge and I ran the Monday Meeting crew through the new Crossroads Continent adventure he and I have been furiously scribbling on. It was really a pre-Convention playtest with our core Onyx team so that we could see how well it plays out, if the threat levels are right, and to give me a chance to run it on VTT for the first time. This has led to us doing a two-episode Onyx Pathcast run-through of the adventure with recording starting this week because the team had so much fun! (Those recordings will be played in June, so keep your eyes open for them. And we’ll be running the CRC adventure during the Onyx Path Virtual Convention). Which was pretty nice to hear, as I had no idea if I still had what it takes to deliver the gaming fun – especially via VTT – after being heads-down concentrating on running Onyx Path over: Ten Years, Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter/Crowdfunding! Look here for news of our next crowdfunding project: Exalted: Exigents! (Psst, look above in the blog for more info on how we’re crowdfunding Exigents!)

Today’s Reason to Celebrate! Last week, we lost two giants of comic book art who helped define decades of visuals, and pushed forward the standards of how creators are treated: George Perez, the master of three or more characters active in a single panel – he made all that detail work dynamically, and Neal Adams, who helped modernize comic book art and stories – particularly in his dynamic use of viewpoint panels. He helped move Batman away from the camp TV Adam West version back to the “dark night detective”, and tirelessly fought for creators’ rights. Thanks to you both for pushing the boundaries artistically and professionally. View the full article

They presume we are always guilty of some crime or other, even if this isn’t the case. You’ll have to remember our most important code: look out for ourselves.” — Meeka Chase, Mouse and potential Rat King Rats and mice live in the margins of the empires of dogs and cats, with homes that connect to the Underneath — a vast collection of warrens, tunnels, caves, and other hidden places. It is a dangerous place full of unexplained phenomena and terrifying creatures. But it is also full of wonders of ages past and the thrill of discovery. For the rodents believe Man was part of something called Science, a way to learn power through study, observation, and experimentation. Perhaps through the exploration of the Underneath, they can rediscover Science. It’s time to listen to the squeaks in the deep. Squeaks in the Deep is a chronicle sourcebook for both Pugmire and Monarchies of Mau. It’s usable with either game, or as part of a joint experience.

  15. We don’t just highlight actual plays here on the media blog; we also delve into the world of podcasts and analyses of our various game lines. This week, we’re paying a visit to the Deliberative Podcast! The Spotlight The Deliberative Podcast has been running for a good while and has really broken down Exalted into several interesting chunks, deeply analysing the game’s parts from a fan and a Storyteller perspective. We recommend you check out any one of their episodes over here: https://podtail.com/en/podcast/the-deliberative/ The Video Round-Up If you’re not already following The Onyx Path on YouTube and Twitch, now’s an ideal time to do so.

  16. http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/MicheleGiorgi_Demigod.jpgScion: Demigod art by Michele Giorgi Yep, it’s actually Scion 2nd Edition that we’re publishing right now, and are celebrating all this merry month of May! Which, of course, is part of our year-long celebration of Onyx Path Publishing’s 10 Year Anniversary – each month, we focus on a different game line. It’s Scion‘s turn! We started off the month a bit early last week by delivering to backers the PDF of Scion: Demigod early. Right now, we’re gathering the errata shared with us by our Heimdall-eyed backers, and soon we’ll be reviewing those notes and using them as needed to tweak the book. Thanks to everyone who has already or will soon contribute to the errata process! Now that we are in May, we have already started the 10th Anniversary 10% Sale for Scion 2e PDFs over at DTRPG for about half of our current Scion 2e projects, and in a few weeks we’ll have another sale for the next batch – the other half – of great books! It includes: Scion Second Edition Book One: OriginScion Second Edition Book Two: HeroA Light Extinguished (A Jumpstart for Scion 2e)Heroes for the World (Ready Made Characters for Scion 2e)Scion Second Edition Book One: Origin (Phone Version)Scion 2e VTT Hero Signature TokensScion 2e VTT Origin Signature Tokens That’s 10% of the usual price for those Scion PDFs – so 90% off regular price! That’s our way of saying thanks to all of you in our Scion 2e community. We couldn’t keep creating all of these amazing and imaginative takes on mythology without you! And, of course, it’s also a great time to mention that we have the Scion: Origin sheet and Compendium available on Roll20 for VTT play, along with the Scion: Hero sheet and its Compendium soon to come! The official sheets are also available on the Foundry, so if that’s your preferred VTT space, we’ve got you covered! Plus, work continues over at Jenkins and Tate, as our friends there prepare the materials for full-out pitches for a Scion TV show! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/FarriLensen_Demigod.pngScion: Demigod art by Farri Lensen There sure is a lot going on, why we’re also as busy now as we were ten years ago when I sat down with a group of creators to talk about what we needed to do to create a second edition, now that Onyx Path owned the game line. [Wayne’s World-style wiggly screen-lines, doodle-lee-do, doodle-lee-do, doodle-lee-dooo] When I was told that my duties as White Wolf Production lead would be expanding from the visual side of things to the whole process from concept through writing and editing to art direction and layout, etc., one of the things I knew we needed was another successful game line. The New World of Darkness (now Chronicles of Darkness) and Exalted needed boosting, but we really needed a fresh line to demonstrate to everyone that TTRPGs were still what White Wolf excelled in. Plus, we had to make that home run while not stopping any of our ongoing game lines, without any increases in staff or budget, and in a very limited timeline that hit the deadlines set up by the distributors to get the books in stores. In other words, business as usual for the creative teams at White Wolf at that time! My feeling then, and now, was that the core concept of Scion takes us back to the roots of super-heroes, and the very myths that then were the inspirations for such writers as J.R.R. Tolkien. Which means that they take us back to the inspirations behind D&D and the games that came after. There’s a reason why books of deities were such a large part of early D&D, and why so many gamers, myself included, had at least a couple of books on Greek and/or Norse mythology on their shelves. But could we make a successful game out of all that inspiration? Fortunately, our folks jumped into the project with massive enthusiasm, with collaboration at every stage of the process. I’d name names here, but honestly, everyone on the first Scion: Hero credits page was a hero themselves throughout the process – they did make the first book, and then line, a success! Yet, as thrilled as I was by what everyone had brought forth, I always thought we could do more with it. If only we had had the time and resources to devote to it. But at that time, at WW, it was not to be, cherie. Which, of course, lead to my taking the opportunity to buy the rights to the game from CCP/WW on my way out of there and onto the Onyx Path. I knew it would be a mighty cornerstone for my new company – and that we’d finally have the chance to tweak some things. Just a few small changes really, was what I thought then… [Continued next week] http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/McEvoy_Demigod-for-the-Header.jpgScion: Demigod art by Pat McEvoy May-be Monday Meeting Notes: We’re still waiting to hear about the Exalted: Exigents Kickstarter, and right now we’re hearing stories about even longer waits from other creators. We’re not really happy about that and a few other KS-related things, so we’re looking at our options. Right now, if we want to put this crowdfunding campaign out, our best bet is to post it on IndieGoGo. We ran the M20 Victorian Age campaign there, and by and large we all had to adjust a few things from our expectations based on KS, but it was a decent campaign that then easily worked with our BackerKit process on the back-end. So, we’ll let folks know as things progress, but there’s only so long that we’re willing to wait to get Exigents out to everyone waiting for it to roll forward. A couple things I can say from our previous experience on IndieGoGo, and based on backer feedback, is that we would use the same goal-based setup we use on KS – so we’d have to fund that goal to get everyone’s pledges – and that they do charge you at the time you pledge. So, folks need to be ready for that timing rather than paying after the campaign funds like on Kickstarter. James has a few work-arounds for how pledging and previews work, but we can’t work around the payment process except to let you know about the process ahead of time, to keep reminding you as we get closer to the end of the campaign, and to enable BackerKit like we always do so you can get caught up there if necessary. So, we’ll see how things go in the days to come! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/NikoPope_Demigod.jpgScion: Demigod art by Niko Pope A reminder to everyone that we’re still looking for GMs to run games at this year’s Onyx Path Virtual Convention in June! You can run your game, contribute to both our con and to our charities, and even get paid for your efforts! Please check out the sign-up sheet in the Conventions section below. Here’s a heads-up that our friends from MST3K are prepping to go totally live to the public with their new Gizmoplex app on May 6 – this Friday – and then over the weekend, with newly edited versions of the first three movies of this season. The hilarious ads for They Came From Beneath the Sea! that they made for us are running now, which really just adds to how much fun the new season is! Plus, once you are in the app, and enter the Gizmoplex, you can find our sponsorship plaque among the many other treats in the virtual theater! It’s really a thrill to be even a little part of helping out on this classic show! I mentioned the Scion sales that are happening this week, plus DTRPG is also having a D&D PDF Sale that includes Realms of Pugmire and Scarred Lands! Did I mention Scarred Lands? Well, here’s something about that legendary fantasy game: Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad is now on the Fantasy Grounds VTT platform! Like I mentioned a week or so ago, we’re continuing to push into a variety of VTT venues so that our community continues to gain more and more useful tools for online play. There is just so much in this book that can be added to any campaign, like new Scarred Lands Backgrounds, Classes, Peoples and Cultures, Equipment and Magical Items, and, of course, tons of new spells! (And if you’re not playing VTT, it’s a great read as a book, too, and available on DTRPG!) Having helped put together the original Scarred Lands Campaign Setting: Ghelspad book, Yugman’s Guide is like a very focused, player-based, version of that first book! Which is a lot of stuff from both the past, and these last: Ten Years, Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! Look here for news of our next crowdfunding project: Exalted: Exigents! Onyx Path Media! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/onyx_pathcast6a.jpg This week: Matthew sits down with Hiromi Cota in the first of a two-part tour of the Scion line!

  22. That’s right, YOU. This week’s media spotlight focuses on YOUR creations, whatever they happen to be! The Spotlight So what do I mean by YOU? Well, every week we provide a glittering spotlight to some plucky content creator or other who produces actual plays, podcasts, reviews our books, or writes blogs about us, but this week I want YOU to be the focus. With that in mind, the comment section below is for you to self-promote in. I want to see you advertise your shows, your media, your views on our products, and I’ll be reading and / or listening and / or watching to every single one so I can give you a spotlight on future blogs! So go for it. Tell us about what you do to support our games, and then I’ll go ahead and tell other people next week! The Video Round-Up If you’re not already following The Onyx Path on YouTube and Twitch, now’s an ideal time to do so. We produce a wealth of content on Twitch every week with a group of stellar partners and content creators, and much of that content makes its way to our YouTube channel too. Don’t take our word for it, however; you can check it out for yourselves: https://www.twitch.tv/theonyxpath https://www.youtube.com/c/TheOnyxPathRPG Here’s this week’s schedule, and don’t forget, if you missed something you want to watch, you can find it by subscribing (for free, if you have Amazon Prime) to our Twitch channel: http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/2-OPPScheduleApr26-May2-1-1024x576.png http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/2-OPPScheduleApr26-May2GRAF-1-1024x576.png In the past week we went the whole hog in uploading videos of The Domain Gaming’s Hunter: The Vigil actual play, which you can check out right here on this playlist: But that’s not all, because we also uploaded our latest episode of Danielle Lauzon and Eddy Webb’s Lunch and Crunch: And here lies the latest Onyx Path News for your edification: Beyond this, we’re keeping it tight this week because we want to see YOUR submissions for media people should check out, so please post below!

  24. http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Dane-Madgwick-Scion-Demigod-Screen-1-1024x683.jpg This week, all our art shown will be from Scion: Demigod, whose Backer PDF is slated to go out to backers for review this week. We’re all really looking forward to hearing what backers (and eventually, non-backers) think about it! Our title, however, is quoted from the notice you get after submitting a Kickstarter campaign to KS. Which I did last week with the one for Exalted: Exigents. So, we’re playing the waiting game, even though we’d rather be playing Hungry, Hungry, Hippos! But that’s how it works with KS, and we do have other approvals to jump through as well, and then we can start the Exigents KS. Hopefully. So progress is happening, but generally on a low-key level as opposed to any big news or announcements this week. With that in mind as our theme, or motif, or mood, for this week’s Monday Meeting, I’ll just run down the topics we hit on in the meeting today. If you have any questions about them (or anything else, really) please feel free to bring them up in the comments! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/HIVE-Studios-Demigod.jpgScion: Demigod art by HIVE Studios This is the last week for this month’s Onyx Path 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Exalted 3rd game line and here’s a reminder that you’ve got that week to take advantage of the 90% off sale of listed EX3 PDFs. I’ve seen mention on our social media from folks who picked up a few of the PDFs they were missing, or who decided to give EX3 a try because of the sale, and it’s great to hear! Glad this sale could give our community a chance to read through game books and whole lines they might not have checked out otherwise! For physical books, you can also check out the IPR Exalted sale for deluxe books and screens, which also ends at the end of April, and the DTRPG Best of Print Sale that contains a whole bunch of our books at a discount for Print On Demand. (Links to all these sales are below in the Sales area). http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Denmark_Demigod.jpgScion: Demigod art by Sam Denmark May begins another focus on a different game line. I wasn’t going to tell you what it is origin-ally, but I’d have to be a hero to hold out and not tell you. Yet, the celebration (and the sales) don’t really start until Monday, May 2, so maybe knowing that I’ll be spilling the beans on the blog that day will allow me make it until then. The Onyx Pathcast has been stuffed to the brim all month with Exalted episodes, and this final week is no exception as host Dixie chairs a roundtable of Exalted 3e creators talking in-depth about the state of Exalted 3e right now. This Friday on the Onyx Pathcast – sounds like a can’t-miss episode for Exalted fans! Another ongoing series for anyone interested in the thinking that goes into our games (or any game theory in general) is Eddy and Danielle’s Lunch and Crunch on our Twitch account, which will feature both charming hosts delving into the importance and challenges of playtesting – at noon Eastern US time this Tuesday (tomorrow as I write this). http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Denmark_ModernTengri_Demigod-1024x284.jpgScion: Demigod art by Sam Denmark Finally, the SFWA (Science Fiction Writers of America) is holding a charity auction that will have open seats for playing in Eddy and Matthew’s donated games! That will be running Monday May 9 to Monday May 16, and is a sweet chance to play with those creators for charity. We’ll post links for that event when we get ’em! Short ‘n’ sweet this week! Can’t always be writing treatises on the state of the company, creative procedures, and visual design. After all, things ebb and flow after: Ten Years, Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! Look here for news of our next crowdfunding project: Exalted: Exigents! Onyx Path Media! http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/onyx_pathcast6a.jpg This week: Dixie hosts a round-table to cover what’s going on these days in the world of Exalted! As always, this Friday’s Onyx Pathcast will be on Podbean or your favorite podcast venue! https://onyxpathcast.podbean.com/ Onyx Path Media now has its own blog on Tuesdays! THURSDAY THIS WEEK! We’ll continue posting our highlight of the week here, but Tuesday will be the day to visit if you want to catch up on actual plays, interviews, deep dives, and other assorted Onyx Path media!
