  1. Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick art by Mirko Failoni Hi, everyone! It’s Dixie here filling in for Rich so he can spend time with his family (Us?? Take time off?? What even is this??). That said, we did still have our usual meeting today, and therefore have notes and updates! Regarding the title, I think we should have that phrasing for every month, not just March, so July is about to be “In With a Squeak!” First off, though, I want to spend some time recapping the Exalted: Essence Kickstarter that wrapped up last Thursday! After a whirlwind 28 days, we ended up having 4,086 backers who pledged a total of $349,260 out of our initial target of $35,000, leaving us just shy of 1,000% funded. I am still blown away by the amount of support and commentary this one got, so my heartfelt thanks to everyone who backed. Additionally, we unlocked 38 stretch goals, funding a whole companion book, tentatively titled Pillars of Creation, as well as a slew of other things, including Exalted: Essence JumpstartExalted: Essence Ready-Made CharactersExalted: Essence Adventure TrilogyExalted: Essence VTT SupportExalted: Essence Charm Cards Exalted: Essence Storyteller Screen Three Exalted: Essence Novellas by Lauren Roy, James Huggins, and Rai W. Cole A NerdyKeppie Exalted Bag Opportunity Increased Art BudgetBonus for the Creative Team I’ve already had writers asking me about the companion, and the novella writers are throwing ideas around like tennis balls, so I think it’s safe to say we’re excited to begin work on those. As for Essence itself, It’s been wonderful to see the homebrew flowing and the discussion unstoppable in multiple places. I can’t wait to show everyone the final project once it’s done! A few people have asked me if we’re going to include Essence content in later companion or mainline books for Exalted 3rd, and the short answer is no, not in the books. Essence was never meant to take away from Exalted 3rd, but to enrich it! Past that, we haven’t talked about any Essence content past the Stretch Goals, so we’ll leave it there for now while everything gets finished up. Today’s (Somewhat Abbreviated) Meeting Squeaks in the Deep art by Andrea Payne Today’s meeting wasn’t really like juggling knives; it was actually pretty short and sweet, since Rich was connected via iPad in his car. A lot of the things we talked about are [REDACTED] (but not [CLASSIFIED] which is no longer [REDACTED]) but we are excited to put Squeaks in the Deep for Realms of Pugmire up on Kickstarter starting July 9th! Personally, this is going to be a wild couple of months for me, Kickstarter-wise, as first Essence and now Squeaks (which I did some writing on!) are going up back to back. I can’t wait for everyone to see Squeaks in the Deep, and someday I will stop trying to call it Squeaks from the Deep!, TCfBtS!-style. Another thing we talked about, and that you’ll see in the art throughout the blog, is that tomorrow (Tuesday, June 29th) we’re releasing Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick as a pre-order! We’re trying something new: Instead of a Kickstarter, we’re offering a chance to pre-order the PDF of the book (not the print-on-demand version) and show your support for the Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary line. We’re working with our friends at DriveThruRPG to try out their PDF pre-order process, allowing us a chance to experiment with this process. When you pre-order the PDF, it will be added to your Library on DriveThruRPG automatically. So you don’t have to jump on the new release the day it comes out; it will already be in your Library! Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick art by Drew Tucker Additionally, don’t forget that premium Print-On-Demand books are going up in price July 1st! There is still a DriveThruRPG site-wide sale for a limited time with all Premium Color PoD books discounted by 25% or so, so this is a great time to get some Premium PoD books, especially for some of the ones we didn’t put into stores. Having so many fun projects going up in the near future just exemplifies, to me, what we love doing as a company, which is having… Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! Starting Friday, July 9th, Squeaks in the Deep for Realms of Pugmire will be up on Kickstarter! Keep your eyes sharp, your ears clean, and your whiskers twitching as we dive into the Underneath! For more about Squeaks, check out this Deep Dive Eddy and I did on the Pathcast recently!

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. Astral TableTop is the easiest way to play any tabletop RPG online, free. Astral already supports popular systems like D&D and Pathfinder, and Astral can support virtually any tabletop roleplaying game. Get started quickly with built-in support for most popular game systems.

  5. …and to pledge for your own copy of the Trinity Continuum: Adventure! beautiful hardcover book! We’re down to the last couple of days, the last few dozen hours even, with a couple of super Stretch Goals including this one: Exploring Alternate Timelines! – Discussion and guidance on the timelines created by Max Mercer each time he tried to change the future and how to play in some of them will be added to the Trinity Continuum: Adventure! Companion PDF. What’s exciting about this Stretch goal is that this is where we use the underlying storyline of the Trinity of game lines so far and mix it into the core concept of this whole Continuum – the idea that our Trinity Continuum worlds/settings may or may not be a single timeline depending on your needs at your table. Max Mercer travels through time. He could be traveling along a single line through time. Or, the overall setting itself suggests, he is bouncing from timeline to timeline, from parallel dimension to parallel dimension, attempting to do the right things to create the greatest positive results for humanity. This can be as simple or as complex as your games require. And any of the Trinity Continuum games can be a part of your conception of how the Continuum works. M20 Technocracy Reloaded art by Pat McEvoy Which brings us to what is happening with this TC: Adventure! Kickstarter. This is the last of the original Trinity game lines to be brought from their original edition into the Trinity Continuum editions. It was important to us to deliver those original beloved settings to all of you who loved them. From here on in, the new main books will be delivering new settings in the Continuum. We’ve made some suggestions about some new settings like the far future past TC: Aeon, or the ancient world way before TC: Adventure!. We’ve announced TC: Assassins, the dark mirror to the Trinity Continuum Core setting, and TC: Anima, a setting between TC: Aberrant and TC: Aeon that features both a dystopian “cyber-punk” genre exploration, but also an entirely different way to play as you venture into the world’s most popular MMO virtual fantasy genre gaming experience. You can even gather clues to possible new TC settings/eras from references in the existing books. In fact, the optional upgrade to powers contained within TC: Adventure! suggests that – if you want to – you could choose to start bringing your pulp characters towards the beginnings of the comic books of the 1940s and 50s. Is that a TC: Adventure! supplement? A TC: Aberrant historical supplement? A whole new TC game line? Something we’ll open up to creators on the Storypath Nexus? Well… Time will tell…. Meanwhile, it IS time for folks to get out there to back and spread the word about the Trinity Continuum: Adventure! Kickstarter! Let’s end this one with those time-traveling Max Mercer options and beyond, and start exploring the amazing possibilities of a limitless Continuum of game worlds! Under Alien Skies art by Sam Denmark A Whole Lotta Meeting Goin’ On! As always, these are all topics we talked about during the Monday Lunch Meeting today: If you missed it last Wednesday, we have a revised edition of the Storypath Core Rules PDF up on DTRPG! Eddy made a bunch of changes to the original doc to bring it more in line with the Storypath System as it has evolved this past few years, and it could be really helpful to provide to new players just getting started with the system. If you downloaded it previous to the revision, you should be able to re-download it by going to your DTRPG Library and clicking on the old version. If you are a Pugmire fan, keep an eye out for the Squeaks in the Deep playtests that Eddy is doing on various venues like Twitch! This book brings in the mice and rats to the world of Pugmire, and not surprisingly a whole lot of dungeon exploration is a big part of their world! Right now, our next crowd-funding project will be either Squeaks in the Deep or Exalted Essence, so catching one of Eddy’s playtests might be a great preamble to the campaign on Kickstarter or wherever. M20 Technocracy Reloaded art by Sam Denmark A very nice article on Screen Rant lists two of our games as the sorts of TTRPGs that Neil Gaiman fans would enjoy, which was extremely nice of them to say: https://screenrant.com/tabletop-rpg-games-like-neil-gaiman-sandman-coraline/ We have another multi-site sale going on; the Spring Changeling Sale for both of our Changeling lines (Dreaming and Lost) at DTRPG, IPR, and at Studio2. Links below in the Sales Partners section! Another bit of sales news is that the traditionally printed versions of They Came From Beneath the Sea! and the Scarred Lands 5e Creature Collection are now available for sale at your Friendly Local Game Store! With Covid vaccinations happening to a greater number of folks, and with restrictions being lifted in many localities, here’s hoping that our FLGSs can once again be hubs for playing and learning TTRPGs. And for buying these books we’re sending them! If you are heading into your favorite stores and they don’t carry these books, please let them know you want them, and that they can contact their distributor and Studio2 to get ’em. Finally, our intrepid and entertaining terribly terrific Trio on the Onyx Pathcast are entering their 4th year of wacky chatter, in-depth deep dives of games and gaming, farty horns, Actual Plays, bears dropped onto orcs during movie reviews, interviews with both seasoned and up and coming creators in the TTRPG scene, and generally a rollickin’ good time every Friday! They are, of course, Dixie Cochran, Matthew Dawkins, and the irrepressible Eddy Webb (as the Beaver). While they may disagree, they are never disagreeable, and now is a great time to jump in to listening to the OnyxPathcast. This is because the Trio did a “restart” last Friday where they re-introduced themselves, explained the origins of the Pathcast, and the extreme amount of freedom they have to pick topics and then go after every iota of fun within those topics each week. (I mean, what was I thinking letting them run riot for three full years?) I can think of no finer group of folks to be your guides to all the sorts of entertainment topics they cover during a show, not to mention highlighting our: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! The Trinity Continuum: Adventure! Kickstarter has 3 Days To Go! We have already achieved over a dozen Stretch Goals including two sets of Ready Made Characters and a Jumpstart, plus three chapters each of the TC: Adventure! Addendum (hide-outs and strange new life) and Thrilling Tales – a book of adventures from the Tales of the Aeon Society audio drama! Join us for two-fisted action in a world on the cusp of World War Two! Check it out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/trinity-continuum-adventure-tabletop-roleplaying-game Onyx Path Media! This week: Going into their 4th year of broadcasting, The Trio have decided that what we all really need is Matthew and Eddy holding forth on one of their favorite subjects: professional wresting! They’ll also go into a deep dive (to the mat) on their joint project: the N!WE wresting game for TC: Aberrant! As always, this Friday’s Onyx Pathcast will be on Podbean or your favorite podcast venue! https://onyxpathcast.podbean.com/ Jumpstart month continues for Onyx Path media! We’re running one of every Jumpstart we can for our games, introducing them to new players and putting them in the hands of GMs skilled at some games, but new to these ones! We would love it if you checked some of these out, to maybe get acquainted for the first time with some of our games! Check out the schedule and tune in! For anyone new to our media section, you can find us running and playing games over on twitch.tv/theonyxpath pretty much every day of the week!

The next episode is for the South of Creation – https://www.exaltcast.com/2021/04/19/smoke-ascends-to-heaven-the-south/ – The South of Creation is dense with varied kingdoms in a dozen equatorial climes. Monica and Chazz talk Chiaroscuro‘s ruins, Paragon’s creepiness, diamond deserts, and the First and Forsaken Lion‘s desire to just play Warhammer 40K. Over on ExalTwitch they’ve been running some amazing games of Exalted, and even have a show wiki for viewers to follow along!

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. Astral TableTop is the easiest way to play any tabletop RPG online, free. Astral already supports popular systems like D&D and Pathfinder, and Astral can support virtually any tabletop roleplaying game. Get started quickly with built-in support for most popular game systems.

Then, it took blood, sweat, and tears, to get it out to everyone, but Exalted 3rd Edition was released five years ago tomorrow! WOW!
  6. Not everybody was in chat to see it... I am withdrawing from WS too. I would prefer Lilly's dad get transferred or something so she has to go, as I would rather her not be NPCed for any length of time.
  7. ATM the group seems to be... ...a (soon to be) ex-slave, jedi hopeful (Dave) ...a rough around the edges New Rep bounty hunter (GD Bannon) ...a slicer (Jeremy) ...a former ISB agent who switched sides (SalmonMax) ...a scoundrel type/possible force sensitive? (Anatoly) ... Smuggler/outlaw (Nina)
  8. Very, very true. Just being Force Sensitive (and therefore having 2 Force Points to start) makes you very lucky if you spend them right and for good things, and that is without any actual training. So you could be force sensitive and not even know it. Otherwise I am not sure how you explain any training, but there are possibilities. And do not forget that it usually takes a few dice in a single force skill to do almost anything reliably. And option could be that you were a youngling that survived and never continued with your training at all, but still know enough to (more or less) avoid the Dark Side when using force abilities.
  9. We are using Revised, Expanded, Updated (REUP), which is like 2nd+
  10. Character Generation You can use a template if you like. Remember you start with 10D of skill dice and remember to pick a "knack" skill. 1) Pick your type/concept/template ● A simple description of your character's role and/or concept. Such as "Young Jedi" or "Smuggler" or "Drunken Failed Jedi" 2) Pick your Race. ● Your race will determine how many Attribute dice you get as a base, the range for each Attribute, and any racial abilities, quirks and drawbacks. 3) Decide of you are Force Sensitive or not. ● You can choose to be Force Sensitive during character creation for free. Being Force Sensitive does not mean you have or even need to have any force training at all. You just need to be a little more mindful about not doing bad acts, as you can now earn you Dark Side Points more easily. There are plenty of people who are Force Sensitive and have no training what so ever and never know or knew they were Force Sensitive. They just thought they were pretty lucky. ● After character creation, if you wish to become force sensitive it costs 20 cp. ● If you are Force Sensitive note it on your sheet 4) Allocate Attribute dice ● PCs get the base attribute dice for their species and an additional 6D of Attribute dice (you are the heroes, after all) For example, Humans get 12D of Attribute dice as a base, so a PC humans would get a total of 18D of attribute dice. The 6 Attributes are... Dexterity — Your character’s eye-hand coordination and agility. Knowledge — Your character’s knowledge of the galaxy. Mechanical — Your character’s “mechanical aptitude,” or ability to interface/operate pilot vehicles, starships and the like. Perception — Your character’s powers of observation, and ability to convince others to do things for him. Strength — Your character’s physical strength, health, and ability to resist damage. Technical — Your character’s “technical aptitude,” or ability to fix, repair, and modify all kinds of technology, including starships, droids, and vehicles. ● If your character is Force Sensitive, and has received training, then dice allocated to the Sense, Control and Alter force skills must come from your Attribute dice at character creation. For each full D in a force skill you gain a force power from that skill. (Approval required) ● Attribute dice can be broken up into a +1 and a +2 pip. Any number of dice can be broken up this way. +1 pips may be combined into a single +2 pip. For example, if you break 2D down into pips your get two +1 pips and two +2 pips. If you like, the two +1 pips can be combined giving you a total of three +2 pips instead. 5) Select Advantages and/or Disadvantages (Optional) ● Select any Advantages or disadvantages that fit the character and concept. Advantages 'cost' skill dice, whereas Disadvantages award you extra skill dice to allocate. 6) Allocate Skill dice ● All PCs begin with 10D to allocate to skills (though Advantages and Disadvantages can raise or lower this amount) ● Everybody gets to pick a skill you have a particular knack for. Mechanically this means that when raising that skill you skip the +1 pip entirely, allowing the skill to be advanced at a cheaper/faster rate. Make note of this skill. ● Skill dice can be broken up into a +1 and a +2 pip. Any number of dice can be broken up this way. +1 pips may be combined into a single +2 pip. For example, if you break 2D down into pips your get two +1 pips and two +2 pips. If you like, the two +1 pips can be combined giving you a total of three +2 pips instead. ● You can also spend beginning skill dice to get specializations. Every 1D spent this way allows for three specializations; add 1D to each specialization. ● We will be using the Martial Arts rules from REUP. Ask if this is new for you. ● Record your skills with the Attribute dice added in. That is your skill total. For example, if you have 4D Dexterity and you place 2D into Blaster and 1D into Dodge you would express it as... DEXTERITY 4D Blaster 6D, Dodge 5D 7) Force Points ● Everybody Starts with 1 Force Point. Force Sensitive characters start with an additional Force Point. Spending a Force Point doubles all of your dicepools for a round. If you spend it in an appropriately dramatic and/or heroic fashion, it will tend to come back at least by the end of the story and sometimes even bring another Force Point along with it. 8.) Equipment & Spend Credits See me about some starting equipment for your custom template and then spend your credits on equipment and such.
  11. Kel and Arcata would both work. You can also tweak them a little if you like or roll up something new. Whatever you like. I am here to help and answer questions. ATM the group seems to be... ...a (soon to be) ex-slave, jedi hopeful ...a rough around the edges New Rep bounty hunter
  12. STAR WARS GM: Noir # of players: 2+ System: Star Wars d6 by West End Games (though "d6 Space" has most of the rules). I can help supply the rules for any who need it. Just PM me. Era: New Republic Era with Imperial Remnant (NOT the First Order) Pace: Far more action/adventure than intrigue PCs: PCs can be part of the New Republic or sympathetic to it, this include former Imperials, fringers and the like and should be fundamentally 'good' as this is a heroic game, not a sith/dark side campaign. Force users are also permitted (even the entire party if we want to go that way) such as potential/poorly/poorly trained jedi, other force users and the like. PC origins are pretty open. Individual PCs could be former Imperials who changed sides or are trying to defect/oppose the Imperial Remnant or simply returning to the Republic, smugglers, mechanics, soldiers, operatives, slicers and so on. Some personal and combat ability is strongly recommended Some degree of space combat ability (such as the Starship Gunnery skill) is suggested as well. A droid character is is also possible (having not had a memory wipe in a very long time or just quirky programming), but could be restrictive in some ways. All non-human races need approval, but most of the common races should be no issue. I am adaptable and can work around (for the most part) PC concepts and such and already have several ideas based on what few PC concepts have been tossed around already. Go ahead and use this thread to discuss concepts and ask questions or ask me in chat.
  13. The spirit of the gnarled woman let out a loud laugh at Kamiko's command. "You think I will tell you anything, you half-gaijin fool? How your Clan tolerates you is beyond me. You know the saying, 'If you lay with dogs, then expect fleas'." she cackled at the Scorpion. Kageko narrowed her eyes at the spirit of the woman and leaned forward slightly to make sure she was heard. "You clearly know little of the Sodan-Senzo, witch. I could speed you along to your fate in Jigoku, or maybe I could ensure you linger here, unable to move on, forever trapped between worlds, between lives..." she threatened. The spirit's laugh stopped and she looked closely at Kageko, her beautiful face a passive mask of serenity with just the faintest upturn to the corners of her delicate lips. "You had better hope you never meet him. If the fortunes favor you, then you may find your death before you have any sort of chance to." she scoffed, apparently not yet willing to test Kageko's abilities.
