  2. Now available in PDF and print-on-demand from DriveThruRPG: Trails of Ash and Bone for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition! It’s a mistake to think of vampire as simple parasites that latch on to an unlucky victim and drain them until they drop. No, they’re not ticks. They’re spiders. Kindred lure victims into their webs and form a ring of protection and sustenance around themselves. And spiders, like vampires, are cunning. They ensnare the small and the weak, but some bind the strong and the mighty. Think of the spider when you consider the vampire’s herd, the vampire’s retainers, the vampire’s allies. They’re all theirs, caught in a web surrounding a predator. Some even fool themselves into thinking they want to be there. They think that proximity to the predator is a boon, or maybe, just maybe, the predator will see them as a creature with a use greater than sustenance. Do not fool for the lies of the vampire, recruit. Throughout their webs are trails of ash and bone, from all their friends, loved ones, companions, and cultists. The vampire cannot help but be the hungry spider. Trails of Ash and Bone includes: Four stories, each of a different theme, one set in the forests outside Copenhagen, another in decadent Atlantic City, one in arcane Florence, one the last in urban Birmingham.A set of fully playable ready-made characters, enabling a group of Vampire players to jump straight into one of these stories.New Loresheets and Oblivion Ceremonies, expanding the range presented in Cults of the Blood Gods. Also available: Cults of the Blood Gods Virtual Tabletop AssetsLet the Streets Run Red Virtual Tabletop AssetsCults of the Blood Gods desktop wallpaper Plus!

  3. Now available in traditional print from Studio 2: Cults of the Blood Gods for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition! This is the same traditional print run that Kickstarter backers received. Ask your FLGS to order a copy! Cults of the Blood Gods is a new style of sourcebook for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition that introduces the pernicious horror of twisted beliefs. Designed for players and Storytellers. An in-character breakdown of the rise of esoteric beliefs among the ranks of the undead and how faith drives many of the major aspects of vampire culture. When you have already experienced death, why have faith? If you accept that you and everyone like you is cursed by God, why cling to His word? When you return from the other side as a blood-drinking monster, what purpose serves belief? Also available in print-on-demand from DriveThruRPG: The Collected Vigil Watch for Scarred Lands! Ghelspad Expanded! Ghelspad is a massive and diverse land. Once a paradise, this continent is now scarred by the ravages of the Titanswar. In the wake of divine bloodshed, and beset on all sides by titanspawn, the people of Ghelspad survive and thrive on this befouled continent. 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. Vigil Watch contains: Expanded information on the culture and nomadic home of the ironbredA detailed view of Leoni, the center of the Manticora ConfederacyThe terrifying deadlands of the Festering FieldsAn exploration of the Library of Lokil, and much more!

  4. We wanted a fresh at-the-table experience to help guide our design on a book dedicated to superheroes. So, here’s what happened during our first playtest of Claim the Sky, where we played our original heroes in a session run by Monte. The post ISSUE #1: BROOD X IS BORN | Claim the Sky Designer Playtest Report appeared first on Monte Cook Games.
  5. …leads to the palace of wisdom? Actually, this week it leads to the 2nd Onyx Path Virtual Gaming Convention! And our lead-in to the con is the awesomely amazing Kickstarter for Exalted: Essence (one of the abbreviations that are used for it is ExEss, hence this week’s MMN blog title) which we’re not even two full weeks into yet! Right now we are 700% funded and soooo close to 3,000 backers and we’ve achieved eighteen Stretch Goals, so far. So. Far. And here comes even more fun: Our next Stretch Goal opens up us working with NerdyKeppie.com to give them the assets to create an EX:Essence bag, and maybe a lot more. I’ve seen some gorgeous Scion prototypes and am really looking forward to see what they can do! (Disclaimer, because these sorts of SGs need them: we will do what we can to work with any outside company we bring in on these things, but we can’t make stuff like this ourselves and no SG relationship like this guarantees a final product). And as for more fun stuff coming these next few weeks, this week backers will be getting the Systems section and then the Storytelling section, I believe. Next week, oh boy, it’s Charms spread out over the week – and I know a lot of folks are anxious to see how these are handled! When I say that these sections are being released to backers, I’m referring to how we release the complete text of the book to backers during the course of all of our recent Kickstarters. Pledge and you get links to these sections. You’ll pretty much have all the words for the book before the KS is over, so you can read through and not be surprised when you get the PDF. And if you don’t like it, you can drop your pledge and walk away. No harm, no foul. We want you to if you don’t like it, we really do. Better a lost pledge than a disappointed fan. (I know a lot of you reading this have heard this before from us, but it is worth making sure that as many people as can be told how we do this, are told). TC: Aberrant art by Gunship Revolution Another big topic we’ve been spouting off about lately – well, for the last month really – is the 2nd Onyx Path Virtual Gaming Convention that starts this Friday! Yes, it starts this week! How did it get here so fast? We’ll have gaming and a panel or two all day Friday, and our Opening Ceremony will be at 4pm Eastern US time. I’ll be there with as many of our Onyx Path Monday Meeting crew as possible, and we’ll lay out what we’re up to and answer questions about, well, anything. A mini-AMA if you will. There’s a good chance it’ll be recorded as a Onyx Pathcast, too! We’ll also be running the ever-popular What’s Up With the Onyx Path? panel Saturday at Noon Eastern US time, and you’ll also be encouraged to ask questions there. We’re going to have a few guests, tell you what They Came From [CLASSIFIED!] is all about, announce the newest Trinity Continuum project – all sorts of stuff! Do join us! Just like last year, there will be lots of panels that pretty much cover all of our game lines in some form or another, Actual Plays that do the same – including Eddy Webb running the first-ever AP playtest of Trinity Continuum: Anima, which I’m thrilled to say I’ll be playing in, and a huge number of games that are being run all over the place and feature a wide variety of really fun sessions. For example, I think there’s a Scion game that is only using Scion: Mythos and Scion: Dragon characters. Which sounds like a blast! As the first of the special sales and events to celebrate our 2nd Onyx Path Virtual Con, I’m thrilled to announce a Con Special Release! This Wednesday, we are releasing all of the versions of Trinity Continuum: Aberrant for sale! That’s the traditionally printed versions of both the TC: Aberrant main book and the TC: Ab Screen going on sale in stores and also available online from our friends at IPR and Studio2! Plus, both the physical book PoD version and PDF version of TC: Aberrant, and the PDF version of the TC: Ab Screen, will be live on DTRPG! Keep your eyes open all this week and during the Con for more deals, sales, and surprises! My only unfortunate surprise is that unlike what I mentioned last week, I won’t be attending the Artist Panel. I’m disappointed, but my TC:Anima game runs during that time and I was caught in a gaming convention Tetris snafu! I love talking art with Mirthful Mike, Maria, and Priscilla, but they’ll do great without me, I am positive. So do check it out at 6pm on Sat! TC: Aberrant comic art by Paul Lee …A Not Terribly Wise Meeting: Yep, we spent most of our time on the stuff I mentioned up above. Which is fair, as we had a big Production meeting last week where we went in-depth through all our game lines. We did have some highlights though: The first is pretty big news about PoD pricing! Last week, we were informed by DTRPG that the prices for Premium Color PoDs would be going up 30-40% on July 1st. This increase is by necessity going to be automatic throughout One Book Shelf (the overall company that DTRPG is a part of) as it comes from the PoD printer and DTRPG has no real option. I believe they are looking for different solutions, but with this narrow time-frame that’s something that might happen in the future. The price increase is happening now. What that means for you is that the prices of all of our Premium Color PoDs will be going up dramatically in July. We’ll be tweaking some of those where we can, but we have no way of cutting them all the way back to where they are now as we’d be losing money on every order. Our B&W and Standard Color PoDs aren’t affected by this, but I do suggest that if there are any Premium Color PoDs you’ve been thinking of getting, this is the month to do so! TC: Aberrant comic art by Paul Lee I mentioned a lot about the convention in the stuff above, but here’s just a reminder that a portion of all the proceeds go to the Bodhana Group to aid in their mission of using table-top gaming to assist in therapeutic efforts. If you want to know what that means, how it’s done, or how Onyx Path got involved with Bodhana years ago, please do check out last Friday’s Onyx Pathcast where Matthew and Eddy chat with Jack Berkenstock, the public face of the Group. Both Matthew and Eddy were surprised and fascinated with Jack’s descriptions of the work Bodhana does and is trying to do, as well as his extremely deep knowledge of TTRPGs. This guy is a Ghostbusters RPG fanboy bar-none! The whole interview has a lotta depth and a lotta surprises, and Jack is well-suited to fit in with our wacky Pathcast crew! TC: Aberrant art by Nate Pride One more thing about the Convention: We are trying very hard to make sure that our newest Onyx Path Brochure will be available for download. If you can, please give Mirthful Mike a shout-out for pulling it all together in time! We all want the new Brochure to be ready for the Con, as it’s our best one yet for showcasing our: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! The Exalted: Essence KS is not even half-way through, it funded in 13 minutes and is currently over 700% funded! We are within hours of passing 3000 backers so far – and as we approach that mark we’ll be unlocking more special Reward Tiers like characters in art and special charms! Eighteen Stretch Goal rewards have been achieved so far, including unlocking the Exalted: Essence Screen, an Exalted: Essence Novella, the start of an epic scenario Adventure Book, a Jumpstart and Ready-Made Characters to get started with Essence, and the Exalted: Essence Companion already has nine sections that will be combined into one PDF free for backers, and more great Stretch goal rewards to come! Onyx Path Media! This week: Eddy, Dixie, and Matthew are consumed by Onyx Path Con Hype! We talk about the things we’re excited for about the con, as well as a short retrospective on last year’s con! As always, this Friday’s Onyx Pathcast will be on Podbean or your favorite podcast venue! https://onyxpathcast.podbean.com/ Check out Vorpal Tales‘ Exalted: Essence actual play on our Twitch and on our YouTube!

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.

Trinity Continuum: Aberrant is a game of superpowered adventure in the near-future of the Trinity Continuum. In 2018, novas — people with superhuman powers — first appeared following the explosion of a space station high above Earth. Now, 10 years later, thousands of novas have transformed the world, using their extraordinary powers to fight crime, clean up the environment, invent new technologies, and create wonders. The presence of novas has also caused problems, and some fear the powerful individuals — first called “aberrants” — due to their unpredictable powers and impact they have on the world around them. Still, love them or hate them, people can’t get enough of novas, and being one is a ticket to instant celebrity, fame, and fortune. Some highlights of Trinity Continuum: Aberrantinclude: Details on the super-powered novas and how they fit into the Trinity ContinuumUpdated Storypath rules and character creation information for novasDozens of character biographies to quickly populate the world of 2028Storyguide advice on how to run Aberrant in a wide variety of tones and sub-genres Conventions!

  6. Now available in print from DriveThruRPG: Time is Come Round: The Contagion Chronicle Jumpstart for Chronicles of Darkness 2nd Edition! The world suffers from illness. It shivers and shudders as the Contagion takes hold. In Houston, Texas, a woman has gone missing and you’re the ones to find and rescue her. But all is not what it seems. Prepare to draw back the curtains and peek backstage. Welcome to the Chronicles of Darkness. A world like our own, but uglier, more brutal — infinitely more dangerous. This world can’t survive long against its disease. Perhaps you can provide a cure. Time is Come Round includes: Rules for playing mortals caught in the supernatural webs of the Chronicles of Darkness.A complete adventure for you to play right out of the book, with four full, pre-generated characters.A preview of rules from the Chronicles of Darkness Second Edition core rulebook Also available in PDF: the Contagion Chronicle Storyteller Screen! The world is ill. You have everything to lose through its sickness. Loss. Change. Chaos. Your own blood will rebel against you. Your own herd. Your own loved ones. Do not believe that just because you’ve had a hundred years on this earth, you’ll be exempt. Just because you were ignorant of it until now does not make you immune. Your waking to the reality of this world — of the great machine in its heart, and the sickness in its veins — is just the first step. You must find others like you and me and make them swear to drive back this Contagion. This world doesn’t have long left. You may be a monster, but perhaps with other monsters, you can drive back the destruction of everything. The PDF Storytellers Screen for The Contagion Chronicle, a Chronicles of Darkness sourcebook, provides a collection charts and other info to make the Chronicles of Darkness Storyteller’s role a little bit easier. And finally, the Contagion Chronicle Wallpaper! The world is ill. You have everything to lose through its sickness. Loss. Change. Chaos. Your own blood will rebel against you. Your own herd.

  7. Surviving is the most important part, definitely. And, yeah, fun can be a little harder to find, sometimes. I've been working on my last semester in college, and for fun I've mostly been hanging out online with some of the folks from the forums, here, since Matt has been kind enough to let us keep running the games we were playing. I've been really cautious about in-person socializing, because while our local vaccine rollout has gone surprisingly well, there are several people in my immediate family who are still high-risk and haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. I miss being able to see my friends. I miss hugs. But it'll be fine. What kinds of things are you doing to entertain yourself these days? Also, hi, Matt!
  8. Hi! I think things are going as well as can be expected, between course work and the pandemic. I hope you've been well!
  9. And no, that’s not a reference to what might be our next crowd-funded project; it’s a reference to today’s Monday Lunch Meeting where we had Matthew out, Mirthful Mike with a bad arm after his 2nd Covid shot, and Eddy coming in later after he took his dog to the vet. So we had some holes in our Monday Lunch Meeting reports process, but managed to fill in a lot of them. And then Eddy did show up and we filled him in on the things we’d covered and he filled us in on the topics he needed the team to discuss. Of course, one of his topics was how the playtests for Squeaks in the Deep – the next Pugmire book, and possible next crowd-funding project – were going. The answer is very well indeed, and you should be able to see them on our Twitch and YouTube feeds now and/or eventually. Heirs to the Shogunate art by Gunship I know a lot of our community are very, very interested in whether Squeaks or Exalted Essence will be our next crowd-funding project, and I almost went with a big teasing sort of post today because of that. But it’s not about teasing, really, it’s about being sure that all of what we want to do with either of the projects that could be crowd-funded is ready and prepped before we go live. We often say that “we’ve learned a lot” after doing 50+ KSs over the years, and this is an example. We’ve learned not to rush a campaign until we’re sure that we have mostly finalized all the pieces that go together to make these things fun for everyone. ExEss is also a project that we need to run past Paradox when we have the crowd-funding campaign set up, so it’s even more important that there are no missing sections as they can’t approve what isn’t there. So, please, don’t worry. We will let everyone know what campaign is going next once we have everything prepped and know for sure ourselves. I know it seems weird after we’ve had KS after KS, but having some time between them is actually a good thing. Gives everyone a chance to take a breath and be sure things for our previous campaigns are rolling along the right way. Not to mention all the fabulous projects that aren’t KS’d! M20 Rich Bastards Guide art by Ken Meyer, Jr Some Cheese from the Meeting: KS fulfillment is starting for both V5 Cults of the Blood Gods and Trinity Continuum: Aberrant, and folks should get their backer rewards really soon, if the shipping services are kind. Even though we didn’t get these out earlier than originally estimated, like a lot of our recent KSs, we are really proud of our teams and the teams at the printers and shippers, who all managed to get through all of the job breakdowns and delays of 2020 and still get as close as we are to the estimate! For some non-KS news, we talked a lot about the games and panels we’ll be featuring at the second Onyx Path Virtual Convention in June. In fact, I can tell you now that we’re looking at June 11th-13th, starting midway through that Friday the 11th and last until early Sunday night – the 13th. After the con is supposed to be done, Dixie has an “after hours” event all planned for folks to hang around and hang out. Obviously, more on the con as we finalize things! Heirs to the Shogunate art by Yihyoung Li More on the virtual gaming front, we’re finishing up the month of Actual Plays having hit all but three of our Jumpstarts. These will all be up on our YouTube channel, so if (when?) you are interested in a game line, you can look up its Actual Play and check out how the players are playing it. We’re hoping it proves a useful library for curious gamers! Circling back around to the beginning of today’s blog, our meeting was abbreviated, but the info we needed to share was shared despite the “holes” we had to maneuver around. Not as much to note here on the blog today, but I figure that some of ya’ll aren’t going to complain about that! The holey meeting is kind of an example of the sort of flexibility we have always wanted to have as a company – with the point of it being that we want to help our creators function better, to deal with real-people issues that come up in the lives of our teams, and still get our projects done to the highest standards and out as soon as those standards are met. Today, for example, the Backer PDF for M20 Technocracy Reloaded was sent out to backers a full seven months earlier than estimated during the KS. This is only possible because our teams are dedicated to bouncing back from 2020 and towards an even brighter future with all of you, and, of course, our: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! Like I mentioned above, we’re still pulling together the graphics for our next couple of crowd-funding campaigns. More when we have it! Onyx Path Media! This week: Here they go on a Deep Dive into the winding warrens, twisting tunnels, dank and dangerous dungeons, and laborious labs of the mice and rats of Squeaks in the Deep, the latest of the books for Realms of Pugmire!

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. Whether you’re brand new to TTRPGs or a veteran tabletop gamer, Astral‘s ease-of-use and built in automation is designed to streamline gameplay. Build your own adventure, or choose from pre-generated game kits like Gauntlet of Spiragos and Dagger of Spiragos.

Regardless of the 2020 time-warp, it was the capstone of a feat of cinematic storytelling unrivaled for the sheer number of films that were released with remarkably consistent characters, in interconnected storylines, in a common world, played by the same actors, over a span of 11 years. Because the films are amazing adaptions of the Marvel Comics’ universe, I think we are so used to all of that working in print for so long that we miss out on how fantastic an achievement the films are!

  11. Trinity Continuum: Adventure! is the next edition of the pulp action game Adventure!, originally released in 2001. This new edition features mechanics that are both flexible and fast as well as new Inspired powers. While the setting is quite similar to the original edition’s, it has been newly updated to better fit into the overall Continuum setting and encourage heroic roleplaying. Trinity Continuum: Adventure! is a pulp action game set in an alternate history 1930s putting the players in the shoes of daring adventurers who seek to right wrongs and stop evildoers. In a world altered by strange telluric energy, characters may find themselves transported to places out of time where dinosaurs still roam or stopping an evil genius from blowing up the moon. The main goal of this Trinity Continuum: Adventure! Kickstarter is to enable us to create a hardcover edition of the Trinity Continuum: Adventure! book compatible with the Trinity Continuum core rulebook and setting expansions (such as Trinity Continuum: Æon and Trinity Continuum: Aberrant). If this sounds fun: >>> Heed the call to Adventure! <<<
  12. It's also perpetually in open beta.
  13. You know the saying: March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb. Well, here we are on March first, so I guess this is lion country. Although I recall that the late, great, meteorologist John Belushi reported that in Norway, March comes in like a polar bear, and goes out like walrus. And in Honduras, March comes in like a lamb, but goes out like a saltmarsh harvest mouse. Not to mention South Africa, where March comes in like a lion and goes out like a different lion. But that’s not the weird part… Sorry. I digressed a bit there. Had my second COVID vaccine shot and am feeling a bit woozy. Just feeling like a medium case of the flu, but still, I’m keeping this MMN quick this week, folks. Of course, the point of the headline this week is that it’s a Victorian lion! And we have an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign going for M20: Victorian Era! What d’ya know? We funded in less than a day last week, and are rushing forward in steam-powered glory through Stretch Goals even as I type this! Thanks to all of our backers so far! I know that our experiment in using Indiegogo has been challenging, so we completely appreciate that you gave this campaign your trust! Deluxe, but not final design I went over a bunch of the changes we were aware of going into this in last week’s MMN blog, and please do check that out, but here are a couple more concerns that folks have when looking at the M20: Victorian Era campaign. Shipping prices are so high. Yes, they are. Shipping costs and reliability issues have gotten worse for all of us since COVID. Brexit doesn’t help with that confusion, either. Our main shipper gets us the best shipping costs they can, and we add that in to our shipping costs to backers. It is really that direct. This is one of the reasons that we offer the project in PDF, discounted PoD, and a Deluxe version you can get via this campaign or wait to try and get better shipping costs from Indie Press Revolution if we have extras after backers get their books. James, our concierge for all our crowd-funding efforts, has long suggested that it is more economical to ship several books at a time, so teaming-up with friends or with a group at a local retailer, could make shipping costs more reasonable. Changing your pledge is not the same as with KS. Indeed, it is not. Basically, you have a couple of options if you want to upgrade or change your pledge. First, you can cancel your pledge and then re-pledge for the other “perk” at any point until the campaign is over. Or, you can keep your pledge as it is until we go into the post-Indiegogo phase on BackerKit and change your pledge there as you always have been able to with our projects on BK. Payments happen when you pledge, not after the campaign ends. Again, that is correct. It’s how Indiegogo is set up, so the best we can do there is let folks know and remind everybody really loudly before the campaign ends to remind everyone. Once more, BackerKit will be there after the campaign is over if you want to back then. My understanding is that there are a fair number of folks waiting until then to “pledge” although there’s a fear that this will hurt the project as the campaign won’t end as highly funded as it could. Well, since we did fund, and over 700 people in this first week have backed it, and the whole point of the campaign is be able to make the Deluxe book, I really don’t think M20: Victorian Era is going to be hurt. But there’s another factor involved, which is that some posters are concerned that the lower pledge dollar amount will mean that there will be a lot fewer Stretch Goal rewards. Well, sure, we’d all like to have more projects issue from a single campaign – the free stuff backers get is also more projects for us to put up for sale, after all. So, I’ve talked with James, and we will continue to count the pledge totals after M20: Victorian Era goes over to BackerKit in terms of achieving Stretch Goals! Now there are some caveats with this. First, we’re doing this as part of continuing the experimental nature of this campaign. This is NOT our new way of doing things with crowdfunding. We need a solid cut-off for our campaigns, and we don’t intend this as a new standard methodology, but as an experimental exception. Second, we have a set amount of Stretch Goals prepared and if we achieve those before we go to BackerKit, we aren’t going to make up new ones for BK. If we get to where we’re counting Stretch Goal amounts on BK, we’re going to stop once we hit the last of the ones we’ve planned for. And third, this is an experimental extension so that we can all have more fun. If it stops being fun for us, we’re reserving the right to stop the Stretch Goals on BK. I mean, we’re not going to continue an experimental that is blowing up and melting our faces. We’re not “mad scientists”, Victorian or otherwise. Not much. Under Alien Skies art by Gregor Pedrycz Or maybe it comes in like a Werewolf! If you look down at the project progress report, you’ll see a new project leap up snarling and howling in the First Drafts phase: The Apocalyptic Record for W20! Here’s a very brief and not-in-any-way-set-in-stone description that we are starting with, but could change as the writing and development goes through the creation process: The Apocalyptic Record is one sourcebook containing five over-arcing stories, divided into chapters within each. These five stories tell different tales of the Apocalypse, each defined by a different phase of the moon/werewolf Auspices. Each contains a series of records, transcripts, journals, and relics written or voiced by werewolves, changing breeds, and even Wyrm-servants from Werewolf: The Apocalypse. This was one of those licensed WW IP projects that 2020 delayed discussions on, and which we’re able to do now thanks to the folks at Paradox! As soon as they were able to give us the go-ahead after they had worked out their plans despite 2020, they gave the OK. And we’re sooo ready to finally get our team writing! As more things shake loose from the miasma of 2020, you’ll hear of even more fantastic projects coming soon! Creatures of the Deep art by James Stowe And Then…The Monday Meeting! Basically, it was schedule talk, a follow-up chat about a major meeting from last week, some industry concerns, and figuring out that March has five Wednesdays that we’ll be selling things on this month. And speaking of selling things – even woozy, he can still segue – DriveThru RPG‘s GM Day Sale starts on Wednesday and features big and bigger savings on our PDFs throughout the site! More details below, but this is traditionally a huge sale on DTRPG. Under Alien Skies art by Sam Denmark Okay gang, I am heading out. My eyelids are just so heavy.
