  4. Round 2 is done; Teagan is the first post of Round 3. I don't know if this fight is going to last more than another round or two; feel free to engage in pulp action fun! Init order: 5 - Teagan 4 - n/a 3 - James & Juno & Siobhan & Giant Spiders (will all act at the same time) 2 - Ali & other prisoners (just lumped all together) 1 - Nazis
  5. As the spider went down, the prisoner reacted three different ways. Those hiding continued to hide but dared to peek out. Carl and Jeanie jumped forward, she with a stone in her hand, and he with his boots, to attack the down spider and keep it down. Graham and one other man dashed toward the wagon, grabbing pick axes to arm themselves. At the far end of the company, a half-dozen gouts of flame erupted from the Nazis, bathing the spiders in a sinister purple flame. The monstrous creatures retreated, screeching as their caraprise smoked and turned black. Ava, Chase, and the brunet recruit still went back to back, firing at the spiders in a group. The blond Nazi stopped his charge toward the prisoners’ attacker and turned to scan the room, looking for other targets. Felix followed Siobhán closely, his eyes widening in alarm when the spider dropped on her. Ali’s intervention earned him a shove when Felix bumped him, dropped his rifle, and grabbed the spider in his gloved hands. Ripping it from the lovely singer’s shoulder, he dropped to the floor and pinned it under his knees. “Get out of here!” he yelled to her valiantly (at least that’s how he pictured it in his own head).

  7. Post is updated with result of the WP contest. Jer, Ali is now up.
  8. The spiders rallied brutally, striking out at the Nazis. Thanks to the efforts of the prisoners and the musician Bride, they were spared as their spider had collapsed, but the arrival of new spiders into the ranks of the Nazis left their captors struggling. Siobhán felt something drop onto her left shoulder, about five pounds worth of an eight-legged nightmare. She looked and saw an iridescent red spider about the size of a breadbox clinging to her coat. It had eight eyes, but two were larger than the others and pure white, and as she instinctively looked at those pale orbs, she felt her will draining away as her muscles locked in place… The caverns and the spider faded, leaving her standing on a stage in a crystal city. Tall, beautiful people turned their eyes to her, waiting for her to begin. Her guitar was in her hands and a microphone in a stand before her. Performance was as instinctive as breathing, and Siobhán started her concert. To all others, Siobhán and the Spider were locked in a staring contest, neither moving in their battle of wills

  10. I've posted NPC information for those NPCs you are interacting with the most. If anyone wants to engage the NPCs, I have left notes so you can write for them. I've also included Skills, so feel free to have them mention a factoid or something relevant in your posts, or have them come up with ideas or say something. The Fanaticism score for the Nazis is how difficult it will be to turn them against the Reich. I welcome interaction with the NPCs if you want it.
  11. Nazis Ava and Chase Hamill Ava and Chase, along with their younger siblings, were raised in a white supremacist militia compound in Idaho. Their family has recently developed a relationship with the Third Reich, a group who claims to be the continuation of the 1000 year Reich. Ava and Chase are the first to pass their loyalty tests and be invited to join them at their secret headquarters, Chase as a soldier in the military, and Ava with a future husband. Ava is bubbly and excited for her new life, eager to help strengthen the Reich and prove white superiority. Chase is quieter and far more willing to let his sister do the talking when they're attempting to recruit -- especially as he's secretly starting to question it. Ava's skills: athletics, Survival (Foraging); Chase's skills: Firearms, Survival (Hunting) Ava's Fanaticism: 9 (Die-hard Patriot); Chase's Fanaticism: 7 (Raised in the life) Ryan Schmidt Ryan came to the Third Reich from a Odinist MC called the StormBringers. He caught the eye of a recruiter and put through their loyalty tests. Once he passed, he was offered membership in the Third Reich, and woke up on a train in a Nazi uniform. Despite his sometimes hard demeanor and dedication, Ryan betrays signs of being emphatic to others, often showing concern for people who aren't of the Master Race. Skills: Con, Drive Fanaticism: 10 (Believes in his cause) Felix McCall Born in a poor part of Jersey, Felix grew up knowing that he was being held back in life by Affirmative Action and political correctness. After complaining on many message boards, he found like-minded kinship with a Third Reich recruiter. Snarky and geeky, Felix has a deep respect for authority and fascists. Skills: Computers, Firearms Fanaticism: 8 (Personally bought in) Simon Taylor Simon joined Ava and Chase's militia group after his wife was mugged by Latino men and badly injured. It changed his worldview on minorities and he sank into white supremacy. His anger at what happened to his wife made him an easy mark for recruitment. Simon rarely speaks, focusing on his job as a Reich recruit, but he can be a chatterbox on his favorite topics, which include his family, football, and guns. Skills: Firearms, Survival Fanaticism: 6 (Came to beliefs through trauma)
  12. Round 1 is over. Teagan is up at the start of Round 2. Init order: 5 - Teagan 4 - n/a 3 - James & Juno & Siobhan & Giant Spiders (will all act at the same time) 2 - Ali & other prisoners (just lumped all together) 1 - Nazis
  13. The hairy spider recoiled from Ali, raising one leg to run the bristles of its leg over its eyeballs. As Lana pushed her brother under a wagon (despite his attempts to Do Something™), Jeanie screamed like a banshee and began to club at the spider’s closet leg with a rock. “GET! AWAY! FROM! MY! SISTER!” Graham pulled Ali back, growling, “Medics in the back!” Other chained prisoners grabbed rocks and started to throw them with varying degrees of accuracy, including Jenny after she scrambled to her feet. The remaining prisoners hid under the wagon, shivering as the spider backed into it, fleeing the barrage of stones. Felix snapped off a shot at the spider with his rifle, spraying the air with ichor and drawing a pitched scream out of the monster. Chase and his sister went back to back with the brunette Nazi, firing at the two spiders closest to the Brides. The blond Nazi turned away from the group and bolted toward the chained prisoners. He didn’t cover the full distance, stopping to shoulder his rifle and snap off a shot. Ichor splashed over Jimmy, Graham, Jeanie and Juno (OOC: that’s a fuck-ton of J’s, ya’ll) as his shot hit its bulbous thorax. That screeching cry filled the air as another spider was badly hurt.
  14. Captives Jenny and Jeanie Shang New York natives and daughters of Chinese immigrants, the two sisters share an apartment in Queens. Jenny works as a paraprofessional at the Queens High School for the Sciences. Jeanie has a culinary degree, and works at an upscale French/Asian fusion restaurant. They are still close, but both have boyfriends and are starting to talk about splitting up their households. Jenny is the quiet twin, generally following Jeanie's lead in stressful situations. Jenny's skills: Science (Chemistry), Athletics (Running); Jeanie's skills: Crafting (cooking, preserving food) Carl Smith Carl is from Atlanta, where he works in construction as a drywall hanger. He has a girlfriend who came with two kids that he treats like his own. He was visiting a friend in New York for the holidays. Carl is pretty easy-going and light-hearted, but will fight for himself if he believes it necessary. Skills: Crafting (Construction), Brawl Graham West Native to the Rockies, Graham has always loved the outdoors and physical activity. He joined the Army out of high school and saw combat in Afghanistan. He didn't integrate back into civilian life very well, ending up homeless in New York. Gruff and surly, Graham is a pessimist, quick to see the worst in a situation and in people. Skills: Firearms, Survival Lana and Shawn Lana and her brother have been struggling to care for their mother, who is suffers from advanced Lupus. She works multiple jobs and he even has a part-time job at a greenhouse after school. Their night out on Times Square was supposed to be a break from the constant care required for their mother. Lana is protective and vivacious. Shawn is just as outgoing as his sister, though he's a little more nerdy than her. Lana's Skills: Medicine, Bureaucracy; Shawn's skills: Science (Botany) Sarah Harrison Montana born, Sarah grew up on her parents' ranch. They raise show horses, cattle, and bison. Sarah's got a knack for dealing with animals, and her family was in upstate New York at a Paint Horse show. After Sarah's Paint won Best of Show, she took the train into the city to see the ball drop. Sarah is an all-American Midwest girl. She is friendly with everyone, though she can become quite catty if people don't fit her preconceived notions. Sarah's skills: Riding, Animal Handling

  16. “Nice shooting, kid!” Felix whooped even as he lined up a shot of his own -- a shot that was interrupted by the spider closest to him lunging for him. Felix leapt back, pushing Siobhán away from the pinching mouth parts as well. "Watch out!" he yelped belatedly. Graham stared at the spider hovering over him, and he just knew that with his luck, the fucker was coming for him. Sure enough, it dove at him, dripping mandibles gaping wide, and the former soldier rolled back. Jenny yelped as his movement pulled her to her knees by their chain, looking up at the monster with wide eyes. It was pure chaos, and in the bedlam, Morgan took her chances. She had her bag on her, and she slipped into the shadows, and away into the darkness of the cavern. Better to be lost and alone in the dark instead of raped by a Nazi. Besides, she had faith in her ability to survive, find her way to the surface, and make it home alone. I’ll send back help, she thought as she disappeared into the darkness.
  17. Shhhhh. Mum’s the word! A few weeks ago in this blog, I mentioned that we’re working on a bunch of secret projects that for one reason or the other we can’t announce as yet. But that we’re going to announce during the year as we can, particularly at conventions as we attend them. (Werewolf: The Apocalypse 5th Edition is not one of them. Saying that now, because I know how rumors start.) This is why we have what appears to be a lighter than normal First Draft section below in the Blurbs!. But now it’s time to reveal one of these projects! This Wednesday, the Phone PDF version of Scion Origin goes on sale on DTRPG! If you had a chance to check out the free Pugmire core Phone PDF, then this version of Scion Origin is based off of that process and set-up. Hyper-linked out the wazoo for ease of use, but still containing all the great info and art of the regular PDF and print versions. Here’s some info about Phone PDFs from DTRPG: When we put up the Pugmire Phone PDF, there were a few demands that we investigate ePub as a format for this rather than PDFs. Long time readers of this blog know that we have, in fact, been working with ePub for years, trying to find a way for it to allow us to present our projects with the same usability and beauty as we have ported from physical books to PDFs. So far, there just hasn’t been a way to produce something that will hold charts and visuals the way we need them. Maybe someday, as we keep pecking away at it. But that day is not today. Today we had an opportunity to create a phone-based version of a core rulebook, and we did that. One does not preclude the other ever happening, and now we have a very user friendly hand-held electronic version that is still very much recognizable as Scion Origin. V5 Chicago Folio art by Michele Giorgi Of course, this week’s headline also refers to our ongoing Mummy: The Curse 2nd Edition Kickstarter as it approaches the two week mark and 200% funding with almost 1000 backers. We’re thrilled and gratified at the reaction the book is receiving, and we’re REALLY looking forward to hitting more Stretch Goals that start creating extra projects to expand this new version of Mummy. If you just aren’t sure it’s your cup of tanis leaves, please check out the last several weeks’ blogs, or last Friday’s Onyx Pathcast, or one of the many interviews developer Matthew Dawkins has given out, or one of the actual plays linked below in the Media section. In fact, you can ask Matthew all of your Mummy 2e questions on our Onyx Path forums, right here on this site, as he prepares for a Twitch Q&A planned for 15:00 EST / 21:00 GMT on Tuesday 19th: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/main-category/main-forum/the-new-world-of-darkness/mummy-the-curse/1348728-mummy-the-curse-twitch-q-a-questions-thread Deviant: The Renegades art by Michael Gaydos One question you might ask Matthew is how he managed to make sure that the Timeless Chronicle (the subtitle of the game) was included in the book. I hear that it was something that permeated every decision, yet at the book’s earliest stage wasn’t actually directly written about. An oversight Matthew messaged someone not-me about: “…failed to add the Timeless bit.” And then he added, after making sure that the book actually did directly address and include that Chronicle: “I won’t tell Rich if you won’t”. What a rapscallion! (This info, by the way, was revealed during last Friday’s Onyx Pathcast deep dive into Mummy 2e because Matthew thinks I don’t listen every week). But Judge Rich, you might say, “Traitorous minions aside, what if I can’t make it to that Q&A, plus I’m more interested in other Chronicles of Darkness games, or Exalted, or V5, or Scion. Whatever can I do?” Well, I have good news! We’re running an Onyx Path AMA on Reddit on Wednesday November 27th starting at 12 noon Eastern US time and running until ya’ll run out of questions. It’ll be labelled more for Chronicles of Darkness questions, I think, but bring and ask whatever you’re into. More news on that next week and on our various and many social media venues! Memento Mori art by Drew Tucker When we talk of social media, it’s often with a sort of worst expectations mind-set, but just a few years ago a post led to a viral campaign to celebrate a brand new holiday: Wolfenoot. This is an annual festival which commemorates the anniversary of The Great Wolf’s death. The holiday is observed on November 23. According to tradition, during Wolfenoot the Spirit of the Wolf brings small gifts to homes and hides them around the house for everyone. People who display kindness to dogs receive better gifts than everyone else. The holiday was created by a 7-year-old boy in New Zealand. his mother shared the idea for the holiday via Facebook in 2018, and the post was quickly shared more than 2,000 times. The FB event page for the holiday got more than 13,000 Facebook users marking that they were interested in the event or planned to attend. An official page was created and soon numerous FB groups, pages, and events followed. The central theme of the Nov 23rd holiday is kindness to dogs and wolves. Various celebrations along these elements have been proposed by participants, such as feasting on roasted meat, giving gifts, donating time and money to charitable organizations which benefit dogs and wolves, and decorating homes with wolf and dog themes. Participants are encouraged to celebrate by eating roast meat and cakes decorated as a full moon. Those who prefer not to consume meat are encouraged to omit the consumption of meat and celebrate in the spirit of “being kind to animals.” To celebrate the holiday, DriveThruRPG will have a Pugmire sale from Nov 21th-28th. As part of the celebration, we’ve also given the Canis Minor community their own gift: Now Canis Minor creators can write and sell Pugmire and Mau fiction! Check out the Canis Minor program for details: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/cc/17/canis-minor Pugsteady and Onyx Path be donating 50% of our earning from the Pugmire sale to the Guide Dog Foundation. And that then, is our blog this week. Hope everybody can find at least one part of it of interest; something that speaks to you about our: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! The Mummy: The Curse 2nd Edition Kickstarter funded within a day, and is now almost at 200% funding with over two weeks to go.

Trinity RMCs Scion Origins Iphone Edition – Should be good to go this week! Today’s Reason to Celebrate! Happy Birthday, in a way, to Alan Moore – one of the most influential comic book writers ever. Swamp Thing, Watchmen, V For Vigilante, From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen…his list of highlights just goes on and on, along with plenty of other works, that turn our ideas of what comic book writing styles and themes are inside out. I say “in a way”, though, because his huge novel Jerusalem postulates that all time is an illusion and we are born, live, and die all at the same time – so the concept of a separate day of birth seems a bit artificial and limited to our perception of reality. Can’t have that!

  20. I'd like all the PCs acting on 3 to work out who goes in what order, please. The spiders will go last on 3.
  21. Nina, I'm sorry to see you go. I understand having to drop games when you have too much. You can come back later, if you want.
  22. Init order is: 5 - Teagan 4 - n/a 3 - James & Juno & Siobhan & Giant Spiders (will all act at the same time) 2 - Ali & other prisoners (just lumped all together) 1 - Nazis Teagan, please post rolls for your actions here, and post a narrative in the main thread.
  23. I have three Init rolls. If the remaining PCs in the scene haven't posted their Inits by tomorrow noon, I'll be rolling Init for them and starting combat.
  24. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 29, 2019 — Onyx Path Publishing, owner and publisher of the Scarred Lands role-playing game, is pleased to announce two new serial releases: Vigil Watch and Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad. Ghelspad is a massive and diverse landscape that is the hallmark of the Scarred Lands setting. Once a paradise, this continent is now scarred by the ravages of the Titanswar. In the wake of divine bloodshed, the people of Ghelspad survive and thrive on this befouled continent. Two upcoming releases explore this setting to give players and GMs more material to draw from for their campaigns. Vigil Watch explores six different locations across Ghelspad. From the bloody shores of the Toe Islands in the east to the Sweltering Plains of the West, Vigil Watch provides an in-depth look at a variety of locales and cultures. This release will contain: Expanded information on the culture of the Ironbred and their nomadic home, the Iron Court A detailed view of Leoni, the center of the Manticora Confederacy The frontier settlement of Mansk, home to human and orc wolf-riders under the leadership of Warlord Klesh The terrifying deadlands of the Festering Fields An exploration of the Library of Lokil A detailed discussion of the Toe Islands in the Blood Sea including the pirate operations that operate from within the dangerous archipelago. Each location includes an overview of the people, cultures, traditions, and enemies.

Yugman’s Guide to Ghelspad offers new insight into heroes and villains, as well as the tools they use to rise to power, through the eyes of Yugman the Sage. This release will contain: 21 new Social Backgrounds expanding the sects & societies introduced in the Scarred Lands Player’s Guide 23 new subclasses, with each base class represented 6 new Races including Broadreach dwarves, and a revised Hollow Legionnaire New Spells, True Rituals, Magic Items and more!
