  1. Sol Invictus — the “Unconquered Sun” — was the official sun god of the Roman empire, and the patron of soldiers. On December 25, 274 CE, Emperor Aurelian made the worship of Sol an official cult, dedicating a new temple to the god, bringing the total number of Sol temples in Rome to at least four. Many historians say that the December 25th date was ultimately chosen for Christmas sometime before 336 CE (probably at the Council of Nicaea in 325) because it was also the beginning date of Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, the festival of Sol Invictus. So happy Dies Natalis Solis Invicti to all you Exalted fans! May he gird you against the coming Calibration.

  4. This is the last week for the Mummy: The Curse 2e Kickstarter and as that gets “wrapped up” on Thursday we’re going to run right from that to set up our booth at PAX Unplugged in Philadelphia, PA. Ah, Philly! City of my birth and youth! City of cheesesteaks, soft pretzels, and bad attitudes! I return, anon! But before that: please check out the Mummy 2e Kickstarter if you haven’t already! We’d love to achieve the next chunk of the Book of Lasting Death and get some more Utterances and Judges in there – but we need your help! If you’ve already pledged – tell your friends! Wander the streets and alert the neighbors! If you haven’t pledged, well here’s the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/339646881/mummy-the-curse-2nd-edition Let’s go out strong! (Like the reverse of the Mummys…) V5 Chicago Folio illustration by Michael Gaydos We’ll be coming in strong to PAX Unplugged this coming week, with myself and LisaT, Mighty Matt McElroy, Fast Eddy Webb, Dangerous Dixie Cochran, Neall Raemonn Price, Meghan Fitzgerald, Travis Legge, Danielle Lauzon, and Crystal Mazur attending! Dixie, LisaT, Matt, and myself will be in our booth handing out our new brochure and answering questions – but most of all, we’ll be directing folks to, and signing them up for, demos in both the booth and at our demo table in the gaming area. Our table is in Area 119a, we’ve been told, in fact! Look right there in this handy map! (Thanks, Ian!) Right now, the menu for gaming with the rest of our crew is: Meghan: Changeling: the Lost 2e and Contagion Chronicle Neall: Scion Hero 2e and Mummy: the Curse 2e Danielle: Trinity Continuum and Dystopia Rising: Evolution Eddy: Pugmire and Fetch Quest Travis: Scarred Lands and Legendlore Crystal: Monarchies of Mau and Chicago by Night Matt: Scarred Lands and Cavaliers of Mars So come on by if you want to sit in on a game and we’ll get you scheduled! Plus, with the brochure, we’ll be announcing at least one secret project, and we’ll be glad to answer questions about that. We’ll also be directing anyone who wants to buy our games to right across the aisle from us at Studio2 – which is just darn convenient! Let me underline that: we aren’t selling books at our booth, Studio2 is selling them for us! Here’s another handy map: Looking forward to seeing a bunch of you folks there – it is a very cool con! Now, here’s some follow-ups for some things I mentioned last week: The Pugmire Wolfenoot sale went really well, and both Pugsteady and Onyx Path were able to send nice-sized donations to the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind! Thanks to all of you who participated in the sale and helped us help them! Our Reddit AMA went fantastically for about 5 hours and many, many, in-depth questions were asked and answered. Thanks to all of you that participated and if you have any further questions and are at PAX Unplugged, we’ll be glad to continue the conversations! I’ll be there with bells on – well, at least one bell! They Came From Beneath the Sea! illustration by Eric Lofgren Last Friday’s Onyx Pathcast started out normally, but then exploded into a frenzy of creative ideas and after the dust settled (or the verbal equivalent) Dixie, Matthew, and Eddy had brain-stormed six new games! Their titles are: * Game 1: Envelopes and Urban Legends * Game 2: The Calamari of Crime * Game 3: Super Dragon Dining Crisis Tensai: Apocalypse Ultima EX * Game 4: Universal Faultlines * Game 5: Barn Raising * Game 6: Love in the Time of Androids You really have to listen to get the actual details of these games, and the wacky yet very typical way that they were conceptualized by the Trio, but even the titles give you some idea of the range of genres and approaches they played around with. While I was listening – like I do every week, Matthew – it struck me that while the gang were riffing pretty wildly, the process is really very typical for a lot of our creative meetings. For years we’ve tried to use the rules of Improv in our game brainstorming. Like, don’t negate what the last person threw out to the group, try and build upon it. The old “Yes, and…” rather than “No”. There’s more than enough time to apply critical or realistic thinking to the ideas, first you need to let the ideas pour out. (And this is actually not easy to do! A lot of our Onyx Path crew are extremely realistic about the challenges inherent to creating projects, and have very strong opinions and likes and dislikes (hard to believe, I know), so holding those comments back can run against our very natures.) But as you can tell with this Pathcast, or with my riffing with Matthew half a year ago in the UK GamesExpo edition of the Pathcast where we combined Transformers, Thomas the Tank Engine, and Scion, there’s something innately and deeply fun and satisfying to just letting loose with our imaginations! Which is, I think, the single greatest part of the TTRPG hobby, and why so many of us love it so much. And, in our case at Onyx Path, why we are so excited to create: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! The Mummy: The Curse 2nd Edition Kickstarter is now IN ITS LAST WEEK and has passed 200% funding and has over 1000 backers with over a week to go. Backers have already unlocked the Mummy 2e Screen as a Stretch Goal, additional Utterances, and a whole new project: the Mummy 2e Companion! Please check out this blog from several weeks ago for a description of all the amazing features of this new edition! Be there to witness the majesty and terror of this new version of Mummy: The Curse! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/339646881/mummy-the-curse-2nd-edition Next Kickstarter: V5 Cults of the Blood Gods!

  5. Dark Eras 2 is an upcoming supplement that’s compatible with the Chronicles of Darkness second edition game lines. Each chapter is a look at a different era in history through the eyes of two or three game lines. Light of the Sun is a chapter that takes place in the 17th century, in the time of Galileo Galilei. It features Mage: The Awakening, Demon: The Descent, and the upcoming Deviant: The Renegades. This fictional letter opens the Light of the Sun chapter and offers a taste of what’s in store. The book is over three hundred thousand words and is now being edited. If you’re excited to play the Chronicles of Darkness throughout history, check out the BackerKit for Dark Eras 2. Accorso, If you will not heed my warnings to turn from your studies on grounds of our friendship and trust, let me tell you fully of the Soncino matter, in hope this might penetrate your prideful stubbornness and return you to humility. Filippo Mantovani died before my companions and I arrived at his crumbling villa at the edge of Soncino. He was struck down by a wasting disease. Some farmers had already taken the shriveled corpse on a crude bier to a hilltop near the town, its crown bare but for the jagged shape of an old monolith. We resolved to challenge this superstitious nonsense after questioning Rigarda, Filippo’s wife. Amid the meager furnishings and empty shadows of her home, Rigarda told us her husband had spent his riches on telescopes and prohibited texts. She showed us copies of De revolutionibus, Siderius Nuncius, and others besides, and admitted that she too had read and studied these books. Further, she said that she and her husband had witnessed strange lights in the night sky, that there were pearls of silver that did not match the charts of any philosopher or mathematician and certainly not holy scripture. They had spent months tracing the arc of these lights, and learned a certain flashing rhythm from them which they believed to be a language of the firmament. Filippo had fallen in with certain men from the local farms, men who Rigarda was fearful of, and regardless of their difference in status the merchant had employed these peasants because of their belief that the monolith on the hill had been built by the ancients, and that witches used it as a beacon to speak with spirits of the sky. As she explained this story to us, and we questioned her closely as to how they had acquired these books prohibited by the Sacred Congregation of the Index, evening fell. Rigarda offered us hospitality but, as we sat to eat, a terrible sound of buzzing and clicking came from that distant hilltop and shook our bones to intensely that it brought us to senselessness. When we came to, Rigarda was gone along with the books. The distant hilltop was limned with white light, and the monolith burned there like an ivory brand. We could see the shapes of figures dancing around it. A light answered in the night sky above, and fell down on a trail of fire to consume that hilltop in a thunderous conflagration. In that fire, Accorso, I saw wings unfolding. You know I am not superstitious, Accorso, but I have no explanation in scripture or reason for what I witnessed. I urge you to set aside your fanciful obsession with the philosophy and mathematics of the heavens. The mysteries of the firmament should not be explored. Some truths come at a price too high for simple mortals such as we. Leave these secrets to God, my friend. Please. — Guglelini, in service to the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition
  6. Well, I'm finally considering being the GM again for once. This time, I'm going to pick a pre-written campaign and run with one of the two following options... The Persephone Extraction They are so old they cannot remember their names. They are pale, spindly things, with hollow eyes, and long fingers that scuttle like cave-spiders. They are strong – immensely, inhumanly strong – but act like old, arthritic people, shuffling along painfully, conserving their strength for when they need it. They are fast – terrifyingly, breathtakingly fast – but they move slowly, cautiously, fearfully. Their fear outweighs their preternatural gifts; for centuries, survival and control have been their watchwords, their overriding goals. We must not die, they whisper in the dark, even though they can no longer recall what it is to live. And if the world must die so they can live, so be it. Basic Concept: Spies saving the world from a conspiracy of ancient evil vampires! System: Night's Black Agents. "Night’s Black Agents brings the GUMSHOE engine to the spy thriller genre, combining the propulsive paranoia of movies like Ronin and The Bourne Identity with supernatural horror straight out of Bram Stoker. Investigation is crucial, but it never slows down the action, which explodes with expanded options for bone-crunching combat, high-tech tradecraft, and adrenaline-fueled chases." Way of the Wicked The Kingdom of Talingarde is the most noble, virtuous, peaceful nation in the known world. Herein is the story of how you burned this insipid paradise to the ground. It's only fair. They burned you first. Basic Concept: Villains game! Way of the Wicked has been set up to help provide cause for everyone to work together and not backstab each other. ...At least until the endgame... System: Pathfinder What's your pleasure, people?
  7. I think this is something Matt did, which randomly posts under our different accounts.
  8. Debating whether to reboot Kel (slicer) or some other option.

Also a good number of stretch goals to add new content to several supplements. Our next Kickstarter, Mummy: The Curse 2nd Edition, begins in just a few more days. Keep an eye out!

  10. I'm gonna give this some thought. A hacker type or the group's street samurai (maybe bio-samurai for more flavor). Like Max I will review and see.
  11. I'm willing to go either way. Personally, I think we're good enough sports to make this work. It's only a game, and better to let us vent any hard feelings onto the NPCs than in RL.
  12. I believe I will be rebooting Ali Badren. Just need some time to sort through the building and adapt the background.
  13. Karen will be coming to Simon Magus, but she is not yet at the place, and there is something she intends to do first along the way. Chronologically, thus there is a block of free time for Darrik to be in on the business with Cara. Make sense?
  14. Depends on if Noir and Max are going to bring in Darrik promptly, or if I should wait for Jeane's PC to arrive at Simon Magus for that convo.
  15. Working on a rough super-soldier project - you know the kind of thing.
