  1. In this Cypher Chronicles, you’ll find out about scary movies we’re watching together as a team, excellent sources for MCG-inspired … Cypher Chronicles, vol. 38-2020 The post Cypher Chronicles, vol. 38-2020 appeared first on Monte Cook Games.
  2. Now available in PDF and print from DriveThruRPG: Sunken Bones for Pirates of Pugmire! Storms regularly sweep through the Acid Sea, and they seem to rise up at the worst possible time. Dalmatian Cove is a known, but hidden, location where those harsh storms frequently sweep ships. Explore the cove and meet its residents in this adventure fraught with danger and opportunities for a hardy band of scallywags. Sunken Bones is a story for fourth to fifth level characters, in which your crew will lose your ship to a natural disaster and then bargain for the resources to recover it. The Graveyard is one of the most dangerous places in Dalmatian Cove, but it isnít the only risky element at play. This story also provides opportunities for building relationships with key figures who make Dalmatian Cove their home and assists in uncovering some of their secrets. This adventure is designed to be run as part of the Going on the Account chronicle detailed in Pirates of Pugmire. It is set after The Race and before Heart of the Storm. However, it is possible to run this adventure completely independently of those stories. Also: The Pirates of Pugmire Guide Screen in PDF! Pirates of Pugmire Desktop Wallpaper in image format! Also available: Frostlands of Fenrilik: Preview 2 Adventure Awaits in the Frozen North Frostlands of Fenrilik is an expansion for Scarred Lands 5e OGL that explores the frozen continent of Fenrilik. Known as the Roof of the World, Fenrilik is a massive frozen tundra filled with unique creatures, dangerous weather and deadly Titanspawn.

  3. We aren’t! Which is mostly because of World of Darkness: Ghost Hunters and its Kickstarter that funded in three hours and has zoomed past 200% funded in just short of a week! As we’ve been doing for quite a few Kickstarters, the completed text is being released to backers in pieces all through the campaign, so at the KS’s end on Halloween, they’ll have the full text to enjoy (sans final edits and layout and all that good stuff that makes a pile of text into a book)! Also, as we’ve been doing for quite awhile with our KSs, we’re building a companion book in sections as they are achieved by backer pledges adding up to milestone amounts that fulfill Stretch Goals. These sections are further explorations of ideas from the main book, as well as new topics we think would help the game line – sometimes even from backers who suggest ideas in the Comments section! In the Monday Meeting today, Matthew Dawkins suggested a couple of things to watch that could get you in a WoD: Ghost Hunters mindset: on Netflix is Bly Manor, a sequel to Haunting of Hill House, and on the BBCi Player there’s the aptly titled Ghost Stories. Matthew suggests both although we’re not sure if everyone can access both of them – guess it depends on your country. (I won’t be seeing these, though, as it is well known that I’m a-scared of horror films and TV…). In the weeks to come in the Onyx Path Media section, you’ll be able to find links to several WoD: Ghost Hunters interviews and actual plays, including this interview of Matthew himself: https://magethepodcast.com/index.php/2020/10/10/world-of-darkness-ghost-hunters-with-matthew-dawkins/ We’re doing our part, too, with next Friday’s drop of the Onyx Pathcast being one the Trios’s patented insightful and incisive Deep Dives all about WoD: Ghost Hunters! Check out Dixie, Matthew, and Eddy, as they explore the info in the book, but also delve into the kind of book it is – a descendant of the old WoD “black books” that dealt with elements of the World of Darkness rather than a specific game line. TC: Aberrant art by Steve Ellis Save Against Fear Virtual Con Notes! This weekend we were part of the Save Against Fear Virtual Convention, a fund-raiser for the Bodhana Group, who are professional therapists that are using tabletop games as therapeutic methods in their efforts. Pretty sure this was my 9th year attending and sponsoring, as I think they are good smart people trying to use our thing to help people. Which is a good thing. In recent years, I’ve also brought along (conned) Onyx Path folks and we weren’t going to miss it just because circumstances dictated a virtual con. In fact, we kind of like virtual cons – just the no-pants option is a huge thumbs-up! To start, we had a panel Friday afternoon at 4 where Eddy, Matthew, Dixie, Travis Legge, and myself, reprised the ever-popular What’s Up With Onyx Path? panel we’ve done at so many cons over the years. A lot, A LOT, of silliness went on as we talked current and upcoming projects, and even revealed a hither-to unknown new main rulebook Matthew is working on! If you missed it, we’ll have it up on our YouTube channel sometime soon! TC: Aberrant art by Steve Ellis I couldn’t sit in on any other panels as this weekend was extremely busy for me (including a virtual Zoom-based 40th high school reunion gathering – talk about surreal experiences), but Dixie and Eddy were in on a ton more over the next two days. Here they describe what went on: I haven’t heard from the Bodhana Group‘s team as to how the con worked out for them, although I expect to later this week, but am really interested in whether this is something they’d like to do again as we at Onyx Path have been discussing doing another virtual Onyx Path con. Let The Streets Run Red art by Sam Araya Also Mentioned At Today’s Meeting: We have upcoming sales including the Return of Halfoween sale that is running now at Indie Press Revolution (IPR) who are selling our Chronicles of Darkness books and Screens at 50% off!

Introducing a Virtual Tabletop adventure: the Gauntlet of Spiragos for Scarred Lands on Astral TableTop! 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.

  4. World of Darkness: Ghost Hunters presents paranormal investigation from a mortal’s perspective. Chapters cover skeptical ghost hunters, well-organized groups, natural mediums, and their families and the equipment they use to uncover the “truth” that ghosts are real. In the World of Darkness, however, paranormal investigators may unwittingly stumble across any one of its other denizens, putting themselves (and the creatures they encounter) at risk. This World of Darkness: Ghost Hunters Kickstarter campaign is designed to enable Onyx Path to create a prestige hardcover rulebook. At least one bookmark, special edging for the pages, and a full-color, 130+ page interior featuring stunning artwork are all part of this Deluxe package. Exceptional funding may allow us to add Stretch Goals that further develop the setting and add additional materials for play, possibly including a quick start scenario and additional options for investigators exploring the World of Darkness. >> Join us now! <<
  5. It's that magical time again. As Episode 6 moves onwards toward the thrilling climactic showdown, I'm dishing out a new Project in which you can earn bonus XP. So here it is, what you've all been waiting for: Weirder Stuff: Behind The Scenes. Go behind the scenes of Nutflix's newest hit series. Come take a look at the actors and actresses of this wild show when they are off the camera. Write a scene of your character as an actor on the hit TV show 'Weirder Stuff'. It can be solo, or written with other players, of course. They could be demanding rewrites or more screen time, arguing with their agent or other actors, looking for another job, forcing a smile as they do a press junket, meeting fans, reading fanmail, filming a scene, whatever. Interpersonal relationships could be similar to their on-screen ones or totally different. The actor can be entirely different in personality from the character they portray... 'Devin' might actually be a studious, serious-minded actor who masters the facets of his character. 'Sean' might actually be a girl playing the part of an intersexed boy, who incidentally knows nothing about computers at all. 'Cade' might be a class-A jock douchenozzle. 'Cass' might be a total thot. 'Marissa' could be a total sweetheart who spends time between takes apologising for all the mean shit the script has her saying. Or they might have been typecast! So before writing interaction with someone else's 'actor', confer with them to get an idea of what tack they're taking. Award: I will award between 2 and 5 XP for this Project. Criteria will be individual effort, coherence as a group, collaborative effort and, of course, the entertainment value. Time Limit: The Project will run until Episode 6 comes to a close and is locked. So plenty of time to come up with ideas and chatter in Discord. Where: Posts for this Project will go in this thread below. If you have any questions, ask me in Discord. Have fun!
  6. Laurie opened her mouth to protest - then shut it again with an almost audible snap, her complexion going a little pale. With her new drive towards logical thought, she couldn't really argue with the Twins assessment - and that was really fucking irritating. She absently noted in a corner of her mind that wasn't a seething morass of resentment, anger and guilt that the Twins and Jason both had this way of presenting cold hard truth in a way that seared itself into the ears and brain, though Jason's coldly amused scorn had been a lot easier to handle than Marissa's venom. "Shit." she muttered, chewing on her lower lip, lost in thought for a moment. She hadn't considered the wider picture. She'd just been doing the kid sister thing and teasing her brother, and he'd just done the older brother thing and indulged her. After all, it was just high school shit, right? Only Sean was ostracized already for being different. Hell, if he'd not had a friend who literally didn't care on an emotional level about social norms or what others thought, her brother might have had an even worse school life than he'd had already. Sure, he had powers now and was part of some super-secret-super-team of teens (something Laurie was not at all copacetic about being left out of), but he still had to go through at least two more years of this shit. And as for her... if the coach really was as pissed as Marissa insinuated, Laurie's career as a star kicker might be over before it began. She might even have damaged the cause of other girls who wanted to play football. All because she'd been thoughtless. "No." she said quietly, looking up at the Twins with a firm set to her jaw. "No crying to mom. It's on me." She took a breath, then: "So I'm asking - without sarcasm - for help. Advice, even. You guys know how to play the game - you don't even have to spell it out for me, just give me a pointer or two to fix this mess." She hesitated. She was tempted to try the big blue eyes, but realised that being a kid had been what had gotten her and Sean into the problem. So instead of wheedling, she simply asked. "Please?" = = = = = = = = [You suck! Just wait until I catch you, LOL.] Autumn's text got a twitch of a smile from him, and he was taking a moment over considering what would be a suitable response when the group text chime sounded. //Groovy. Marissa said she doesn't buy it. Send n00dz.// Sean was aware of a soft chuff of mirth from the lean figure still slouching in the passenger seat as they entered town limits, and Jase's fingers flying over the touch-keys in response to the group text. //Can't. Sean won't let me take my pants off. Very car-proud.// "Want us to head straight there?" Sean asked, checking the road signs and glancing at his friend. "Drop me at home?" Jase replied, peering out of the window a moment as he thought. "I'll drop off my haul then head down in the Charger." he smiled faintly. "Nothing against your baby here, but I want my own car handy. Just in case." "You got it." Sean nodded, turning off the main road and headed for the Bannon Farm.
  7. In Sean's car, half an hour after Noon. "Whatcha doing?" Sean frowned a little at Jase's feet on his dashboard as he glanced over at his friend, but at least the tall youth had slipped his boots off and was resting sock-clad feet on the upholstery rather than his boot soles. He'd set the passenger seat into a full recline shortly after their last conversation and had apparently been napping - or meditating. Or contemplating his next kill Sean had (mostly) jokingly said to himself as the Jeep ate up the miles and the weird Nordic folk music had filled the car with stirring vocals and drumming. Now, however, he had been aware of movement and, when he looked, saw Jase still reclining tapping away at the touch screen with a tiny smile quirking one corner of his mouth. "Ahh. Texting your girlfriend." Sean nodded sagely. "Texting everyone." Jason replied as he hit 'Send', causing Sean's phone to chime a moment later. "I thought it would be a good idea for the Fellowship to have my new number." Looking at his phone's screen, Sean nodded. It was a simple message. //My new number. For the Fellowship only, please. Jason// "To the point." Sean grinned, putting eyes back on the road as Jason went back to tapping at his screen. "And now?" "Now I'm texting my girlfriend." Jason's smile turned mischievous. = = = = = = = = = As noon moved firmly into the past and one o'clock approached, the air was filled with the scents of grilling food and the shimmering smoke rising from a few dozen staked picnic areas. Hank had wandered off to chat up one of the nurses from the Medical Center and Gar was spending his time listening to the small radio playing country and rock music, watching his own grill as it slow-cooked some ribs, and casting his gaze over the other families present. This was the first year he'd turned up to the Labor Day cookout and, despite his nervousness regarding his neighbours, had so far been treated with more warmth than he would have expected to receive as the town drunk. Of course, he wasn't that guy anymore. He'd shaved and put on a fresh shirt and everything, today. Heck, he was even sipping on a Coors, which everyone knew wasn't real alcohol so much as beer-flavored soda. In truth, Gar had only drank so heavily to forget his misery rather than out of some addiction to the substance, so quitting wasn't so much an issue as was just cutting back, drinking socially rather than in order to numb himself till he fell asleep. Still, he was avoiding anything harder than beer these days. He smiled as a flash of red-gold drew his attention to Autumn, laughing with her parents as they and the Crockers relaxed together. On a whim, he tried to spot the others of Jason's strange circle of friends. No Sean, obviously. He was off with Jason. There was Cassandra Allen, dispensing a tummy rub and scritch to her dog. Over there was Laurie Cassidy... who was not one of the super-teens but hung around the barn sometimes. No sign of the huge Allister boy or Lilly Pryor... Ah, there were the Jauntsens. He didn't know their parents really - had bumped into Carl in a bar once or twice and Misty at the school when he'd had to go in for some administrative reason or other. They seemed okay people at the time, but watching them now he couldn't help but wonder at how very 'California' the family was. Still, the kids were mostly okay, and were Jason's friends, so he gave the family a companionable salute with his beer as they passed - which Misti ignored, turning her sunglasses-bedecked face away, and Carl apparently didn't notice. = = = = = = = = = He could feel them up there, through the Tree he could feel them. Laughter, celebration, food and drink in the warming light of the sun. He remembered what that had felt like. Not Araun. Araun had not felt the sun's warmth in millenia. Araun's celebration was in the defilement of life and the rending of flesh. But Cody... Cody remembered last year, when he'd gotten a kiss in the woods after dark from a cheerleader following the Labor Day picnic, recalling the taste of her lipgloss. He remembered the smoked ribs, the beer he'd snuck away from his dad's cooler, the taste of apple and blackberry pie, his mom's laughing. And he moaned, a sound of misery and regret, more human now than he had been in weeks, more Cody now than he had been in weeks. His long, extra-jointed fingers clenched the rests of his grisly throne, his talons scoring the yellowing bone as he let out a sob. He could still taste Charlie's heart. He could still smell the raw charnel odor of this, his realm of blood. He sobbed again, drumming the back of his head against the back of his throne. "What have I done?" he slobbered through teeth no longer neat and white, that cut his gums whenever he closed his mouth. He threw back his head and let out a howl of loss - cut short as the other consciousness in his mind returned from whatever far-flung gulfs of contemplation it had slumbered in. Not you. Them. They did this to you. "They..? No. I chose. Me..." They forced you. Laughed at you. Made you afraid. You are not afraid now. I gave that to you. "Yes... Not afraid. Sad." All that you miss is ephemera. Not real. The hunt, the kill, the taking of what you want. That is how you know a thing is real. The other voice took on a low, intimate tone. Ahh. You are lonely. Soon, my child. Soon we shall be free of this place and you shall be a king. Until then... There is the girl. The girl, yes. Cody rose from his throne, stepped Through to the cellar where he kept... a prize. A memento he had taken from his first real kill. Eyes now easily able to pierce the darkness saw the naked form flinch away, ears keen as a hounds heard her muffled whimper of terror. Araun was right. Soon, he would kill his tormentors, release their Radiance, and together they would break free from this place and he, Cody would be a king! Until then there was... the girl.

  9. The Last Day Of Summer, The Last Day In The Sun. A fulcrum point between Then and Soon. There was a synchronicity to the day, Coyote mused as he looked out of the window of his hotel room, the inelegantly-named 'OYO Hotel Shelly, MT' The cheap, reasonably clean and low-profile hotel was as good a place as any to lay his head when sleep became a necessity - as he had told the winsome Jauntsen girl, he was made of much the same substance as other living creatures, and his physical needs were largely of the same kind, though altered in some ways and diminished greatly in others. Substance, he mused, holding a hand up to his gaze, peering at the solid-seeming flesh and noting, on the noetic level, how paper-thin his vital force now was. It had been a long time. Too long, even for a race that had thought itself immortal. Too long to be cut off from the surge and shimmer of true Radiance, the Source of All, on this prison-rock. He had husbanded his strength through millenia and now, in this time and place, the fruition of every manipulation, every nudge, every word sown in the right ears at the right times was coming to pass in a handful of seedlings, beautiful and fragile, each containing a spark of his Radiance passed down through uncounted generations, nurtured in the deadly yet fertile soil of Montana. Keeping track of the bloodlines alone had been a Herculean task, let alone ensuring that they would propagate in the right way. Each of them had a touch of greatness, a spark that the presence of Radiance could fan into an illuminating star... or a terrible inferno. Or both, the near-immortal thought with a smile and a shrug. Fire burned, but from ashes arose new growth. Illumination could also be blinding. They would need to find the balance between blindness and destruction. He hoped that they would find that balance in each other. Hope was all he could do, really. Tonight was the night. He sensed that as the sailor senses the storm through the ache in his shoulder. One of his seedlings was already dead, their light devoured. Tonight would see if the others had the mettle that their world would need. He looked out of the window at the Champion's Field surrounding the Carousel across the road, and mused at how apt the naming of the field was. Today, the champions of this little blue-green ball would revel, and tonight go forth to either bring doom or salvation to their people. * * * * * * * Catheen of the Draig, born from Elsbett by Iskand, heard the sound of music and laughter and voices as she sat at the table in her apartment's small kitchen nook. The sun was shining outside, the blue skies calling her to step out, to wander amongst the people of her adopted home. After all, Kaitlin Forster would be expected to show up, wouldn't she? She'd smiled pleasantly and nodded noncommitedly in the teachers lounge when asked if she'd be attending, half intending to simply claim a stomach-ache when she did not show. But she shared a quality with humanity that her son did not - the need for company, to be part of a larger grouping, to feel the ebb and pulse of people around her. Put simply, she was lonely. She did not deliberate overlong. Donning a sundress and sandals, and slipping a pair of sunglasses over her cerulean eyes, she checked herself in the mirror before applying a couple of touches of makeup. She grabbed her purse and a broad-brimmed sun-hat as she headed out of the door, wondering idly if her son would be at the Labor Day event... * * * * * * * Hannah Fuhrman was annoyed. Not about her weekend - she'd caught up with an old flame from college who had been just the right mixture of friendly and flirtatious to take her mind off her philandering soon-to-be-ex-husband. They'd had a nice date, and Brock had been a gentleman and not pressed when she'd bid him goodnight with a kiss on the cheek before headed to her hotel room alone. Her lawyer had advised her to wait until the papers were all signed before getting back on the horse - advice which at the time the heartbroken woman had scoffed at but was now grateful for. Then she'd spent Sunday shopping and treating herself to a spa before heading back to her hotel once more. Only to receive no answer from the home phone or Charlie's cell when she tried to call him at noon on Monday to let him know she was on the way - and give him time to clear up any evidence of teenage shenanigans. Her lips thinning in an irritated grimace, Hannah heard the voicemail message for the sixth time. "Charlie, it's your mother. Again, again. Please call me back, or better yet, answer your damn phone, mister." she said with some severity. "And the house better not be trashed when I get back, or you are grounded for life." she added with only a faint trace of humor in her tone. "See you in a couple hours, sweetheart. I'm leaving Great Falls after I have some lunch with a friend." That boy, Hannah sighed as she hung up and turned back to finish packing. "Probably off smoking weed with his reprobate friends again." she muttered with a shake of her head. Still, she was meeting Brock again for lunch, so at least she could swap divorcee stories and enjoy herself before going back to being 'The Mom'...
  10. Shelly, Montana. Monday 2nd September. Labor Day. It was the end of summer. Not the end of the actual, physical season of summer. That, officially, wouldn't be until the twenty-third of the month, three weeks from today. Rather, it was the end of the summer as a concept in the minds of the populace. After today, wearing white was a faux pas. After today, Halloween decorations would start being sold, and pumpkin spice lattes too - even if the latter might be iced ones because the weather was still warm. Everyone would be back to work, back to school, bidding farewell to the spirit of summer and moving into fall. But that would be after today. Most towns and cities in America have their Labor Day customs. In fact, the smaller the town the more likely such customs were to exist and be more universally approved of. In Shelly, the custom was to gather at the Carousel, a restored merry-go-round that in the winter months was moved inside a large, low, hangar-like building known as the Carousel Rest Stop. In the summer, it was brought out once more to be the focal point for local and state fairs and celebrations, sitting in a large field surrounded by tents and stalls as music blared from nearby stages and people came from all over Toole County and even further to join the fun. But on Labor Day, there were relatively few from outside Toole County present. The celebration was more local, more intimate. A friends and family affair. Sure, there might be some out-of-towners from other parts of the state, visiting with relatives. Or families of servicemen and women posted at the nearby base, considered to be honorary Shellyites by most if not all of the locals. The setup was modest and simple - there were some entertainments: live music, some stalls and food vendors, and of course the Carousel itself, a glinting and sparkling and painted remnant of an earlier age - but by and large people would arrive with hampers and coolers, set up tables and grills, and barbecue and picnic with one another, wandering around and visiting their neighbours, sharing food and recipes and camaraderie as the smaller children, perhaps sensing the end of the spirit of summer, ran and shouted excitedly. The teens, too, had their own customs on such days. Though the specter of school on the morrow made parental oversight a little too tight to throw real parties, it was common enough for them, as the afternoon wore on into evening, to slip away from the main picnic areas into the clumps of trees ringing the field and smoke, drink and make merry away from the eyes of parents or snitching younger siblings. That, however, would be later. Right now it was just short of noon, and already the field was bustling with activity, people arriving with their families as the Carousel whirled and blared and the stall-holders chattered and laughed. It was a warm, balmy day, the sunlight soothing away the chill of the morning and casting few shadows. Shelly was gearing up to give summer a fine, cheery sendoff.
  11. News comes on little fairy wings! Pandemonium Noir, a Cypher System-powered RPG set in the worlds of Weird Tales has just launched its Kickstarter. Next week holds the launch of a Diamond Throne Cypher System conversion Kickstarter from Here Be Dragons Games, as well as the release of We Are All Mad Here and a livestream about Fairy Tale RPGs. The post Cypher Chronicles, vol. 32-2020 appeared first on Monte Cook Games.
  12. Titanomachy art by Michel Giorgi The Kickstarter for They Came From Beyond the Grave! finished up last week with a massive surge of pledges in the last three days. This enabled us to achieve several more Stretch Goals than we expected, which is definitely the best way to end up with a Kickstarter! Thanks to everyone who backed and spread the word about the project! Looking at the number of backers, in addition to the pledge amount, we are absolutely thrilled to see that this second game in the series surpassed our first game, They Came From Beneath the Sea!. We kind of thought going in that the subject matter might line up with the interests of large portions of our community, so if that’s why TCFBtG! did so well, that works for us! It certainly looks like a third game in the series might come moseying down the trail… But before we get to that new game, whatever it is, and its inevitable Kickstarter, here’s a reminder that next week on Thursday the 3rd we are starting the Kickstarter for Scion: Demigod! More on that next week as I give you the rundown on this latest core book for Scion and how its Kickstarter is going to be verrrry different than the KS for Scion: Origin and Scion: Hero! Be there. Aloha! (As Steve McGarrett used to say in the 70s). Titanomachy art by Felipe Gaona I’m really thrilled to be able to reveal today that on Wednesday, in addition to our releases for sale, our Scarred Lands adventure The Gauntlet of Spiragos will go live as an offering on the Astral TableTop virtual tabletop venue! This is thrilling for me for a couple of reasons. First, as long-time MMN Blog readers know, I’ve been beating the drum for us to make more of our worlds available on the various VTT venues that folks use to play online with their friends for years. Now that the idea of playing TTRPGs online has really caught on, and the tools to do so are getting better and better every day, it’s satisfying to see that my impulse to push in that direction is more and more considered a viable direction for us to put effort towards. (There’s more info on Astral TableTop below in the Blurbs!). It’s also thrilling for me because Gauntlet of Spiragos is an adventure I wrote because I had to do something creative in the TTRPG space while I was working on the late, lamented, WoD MMO. Many a weekend I spent crouched over my laptop wresting with the writing and bouncing ideas off my housemates and my good buddy Aaron Voss. In fact, it was started during the onset of 4th Edition D&D, and edited into 5th Edition thanks to the keen eye and gaming knowledge of editor Scott Holden. This was before Stewart Wieck and I bought the Scarred Lands IP from White Wolf, even. I just needed to create something that I could pull together without endless meetings and huge teams and giant budgets like the WoDMMO. To see it now being reconfigured to work not as a book but as a VTT adventure is just amazing and I’m hoping that folks enjoy playing through it! Terra Firma art by Shen Fei Speaking of creating games, last Friday’s Onyx Pathcast featured Dixie, Eddy, and Matthew spinning the “wheel of game concepts” and creating game pitches on the fly. The birth of new game ideas, with the three of them rocking the cradle. I think they managed to pull together nine of them, and honestly, each one could make for a viable game – and some are real gems! I think they’d love to hear which ones sound the best from folks listening, so please do check out last Friday’s Onyx Pathcast and drop them a comment as to which games you personally would be interested in playing. Who knows, maybe they’ll convince me to green-light it! Not so much a green light, but more in the lines of a blue light special, here’s just a reminder that the sale over at IPR on our 20th Anniversary Deluxe Editions and accessories is in its last week, and we are still participating in DTRPG‘s Cthulhoid sale for PDFs. Plus, I hear that we’ll be offering some sales on selected Scarred Lands PDFs over at DTRPG soon, as well. I know sometimes it seems like I’m always pushing you to sales in this space, yet I do feel obligated since we actually do talk about business stuff in our Monday Meeting from which I derive these notes. We do have fun and talk about the creative aspects of what we do AND necessarily we talk about schedules and sales and productivity and marketing and everything that goes on behind the scenes to make our: Many Worlds, One Path! Blurbs! Kickstarter! Coming next week, September 3rd at 2pm EDT: Scion Demigod Second Edition! Onyx Path Media!

Introducing a Virtual Tabletop adventure: the Gauntlet of Spiragos for Scarred Lands on Astral TableTop! 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.
