  1. Now available in PDF and print from DriveThruRPG: Cults of the Blood Gods for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition! 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? Kindred build and are drawn to faiths for myriad reasons. The exertion of power over a flock. Satisfying their Hunger and their Beasts. Elevation of the self. Reassurance of the possibility of redemption. A grand plan they forged or that was bestowed upon them by secret masters. While some vampire cults span the globe hiding in plain sight, others are fringe faiths with morbid practices and ancient conspiracies lasting centuries. Others such as the incestuous Clan of Death and the malignant Church of Set — arguably the largest vampire cults of all — believe in a destiny that will enable them to impose their wills on the world of the living and the dead. Whether for power, salvation, or transcendence, all Kindred cults wallow in blood. They shed it in sacrifice, demand it of their followers, and exalt in it in unholy baptisms proclaiming their divine glories. These cults dedicated to blood gods are among the most insidious, damning sects of Kindred, and tonight they approach their apex of power. Cults of the Blood Gods includes: 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. A host of religions — from historic theocracies and globe-spanning conspiracies to fringe cults and mortal beliefs arising in the modern nights — introduced for incorporation into your character backgrounds or as supporting casts and antagonist groups in your chronicles. The history, structure, and ambitions of the Hecata, the vampire group known as the Clan of Death, as well as a chapter dedicated to playing a vampire among the Necromancers, and the rituals for their signature Discipline: Oblivion. Guidance on how to use ecclesiastical horror and construct cults in Vampire, making them a vivid backdrop for your own stories, including new coterie styles focused on cult play. Faith-based story hooks and a full chronicle centered on the activities of the Hecata, involving walking corpses, ghosts, ready-made characters, and the secrets of the most twisted family in the World of Darkness. New Loresheets, Backgrounds, and Predator types for inclusion in your chronicles, encouraging player characters to engage fully with the material presented in this book.

  2. They beat Caestus Pax? Whew. That's a very high-level campaign, yeah. He's the leader of one of the major Nova groups, Team Tomorrow. To repeat Matt's question, do you have the books you need? (Secondary question: Do you know which version of the system you're using?) Also, what kind of character do you want to play? Aberrant allows for a considerable amount of flexibility, but it's easier to help create a character and work up power sets if you know what kind of niche you want your Nova to fill.
  3. All of this. The more information we have about the type of game you're joining, what kinds of characters are allowed (and what kind you're interested in playing), what resources they're using in terms of rule sets and books, and so on, the better we can help you. A lot of the books for the different versions of Trinity are available online, for example, if you don't have them- and almost all the people who read/post here regularly are familiar with both systems. Also, welcome!

  5. The big keyword for 2020 was, of course, “COVID.” Fortunately, most of us already work from home, so our work wasn’t directly impacted too much, but there were a lot of secondary effects: being furloughed from day jobs, having spouses or roommates also working from home, delays due to COVID’s impact on printers, warehouse, and shipping staff. Still, we persevered another year, and we thank you for your patience as we all try to figure out how things work in the world in which we find ourselves. We finished up seven successful Kickstarters, enabling the creation of a ton of new material and delivery of more books to retailers. We released Chicago by Night to huge acclaim, Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras 2, and the rulebooks for Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition, They Came from Beneath the Sea! and Dystopia Rising: Evolution.

  8. We’re off for the holidays from Thursday, December 24th to Sunday, January 3rd! If you’re like us, or the rest … Good Tidings & Holiday Wishes (and a Gift) from MCG! The post Good Tidings & Holiday Wishes (and a Gift) from MCG! appeared first on Monte Cook Games.
  9. The Dead Man’s Rust Kickstarter for Scarred Lands 5e has just over a week to go, and time and the kickstarter sure have passed quickly! So much to do, so little time! Right now, we’re in that classic pledging plateau phase most KSs go through, but that hasn’t stopped Travis Legge and his great crew of writers from creating Actual Plays and going on interviews in order to get the word out further about this awesome projects that combines a mega-adventure with a well thought-out plot and even more details of the Scarred Lands setting. The full list this week is down there in our Media section, below, but I do want to call out a couple of efforts: In terms of Scarred Lands itself, this series of YouTube vids are an absolutely fantastic primer and co-host Sarah Stewart has been working on the rebirth of Scarred Lands since Stewart Wieck was pulling together the SL Players Guide! Here’s the link to the full collection from Wanderer’s Haven Productions: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpK1DZP4y9yt3h4HAhLtGunwcvzkZtoUx Also, here’s a link to The Wisdom Check‘s excellent in-depth interview with developer Travis Legge and his take on Rust and Scarred Lands as a whole: https://youtu.be/nBJ4AUgc6Wc In terms of Actual Plays, we have Matthew Dawkins and Klara Herbol playing with Red Moon Roleplaying here: https://youtu.be/qn1CZqDhyb8 and our own Onyx Pathcast Players will be playing Dead Man’s Rust in the Onyx Pathcast released this Friday! Deviant art by Luis Sanz Part of the reason I’m putting these links up here this week is that last week I asked our blog readers to let me know what was stopping them from pledging to the Rust KS, and some folks were straight up wondering just what it and Scarred Lands were all about. I figure, links here and all down in the Media section might help make it easier to find out more about them. Big thanks to all of you who did post! Your responses were really helpful and confirmed the range of our gut-level thoughts, so again, thanks for taking the time to let us know! V5 Children of the Blood art by Ken Meyer. Jr MONDAY MEETING… STUFF Not a lot of the top secret stuff this week, so there’s more to read here this week. Which good be good or bad, depending on your point of view! As an aside, if after nine years of writing this blog pretty much every single Monday, I opt for something a bit more light-hearted like all the REDACTEDs last week, how about everybody stays cool with a little fun? The stuff in question was never going to be put up in the blog at the stage it is at, so you were totally not missing out on vital info. Yeesh. Here’s a bit of info that’s not really secret, but did you know we have another meeting that informs this weekly Monday Lunch Meeting? It’s a quarterly production meeting where we discuss the way the info you see in our weekly updates fit together to further our bigger goals. If you start with last Monday’s meeting, then last week’s production meeting, and then today’s meeting, our biggest ongoing conversation was about Exalted. We started reviewing just how our plans for it were hammered by everything that happened in 2020. It is no exaggeration to say that every project and every creator was affected, and then all of our outside partners like our printers and shippers were also delayed and understaffed by what went on. That was the background, the what was. We needed that to get to just what we were doing about getting Exalted as a game line back on track. (And please do be aware that we all know that this is a conversation we have had several times before. We know, oh we know.) Last week, we heard those plans to accelerate the release schedule heading into 2021, this week we saw them implemented. The start is something you too can look at in the Project Status Updates, below. It is the start. And here’s Dixie Cochran with a bit more info as she has been the person boosting and holding the team together all through all this: So say we all! V5 Children of the Blood art by Michael Gaydos Just a quick reminder that we are putting up what we hope are easy to download and use items each Weds in December since the shipping situation this holiday month is even slower and more fraught with peril than usual. If you must have physical books, our sales cohorts at IPR are still running sales on our physical books from Kickstarters, DTRPG still has our PoDs for sale, and Studio2 still can get you, your local game store, and their distributor our traditionally printed books, too! Just leave plenty of time in your expectations for shipping! Finally, we are again joining and sponsoring Gehenna Gaming’s Virtual Horror Con this year in mid-February, so expect lots of appearances by Onyx Path creators as well as all sorts of our games being run across the whole range of our: Many Worlds, One Path! Blurbs! Kickstarter! Dead Man’s Rust for Scarred Lands’s Kickstarter has just over a week to go and we’ve already funded a bunch of Stretch Goals in addition to the main goal! If you haven’t heard, though, Dead Man’s Rust is the most blood-spraying, face-melting, ass-kicking, heart-wrenching, undead-filled, heavy-metal pile of awesomeness ever conceived of for the fifth edition of the world’s most popular role-playing game! As of this writing we have achieved three VTT Token packs and the exclusive Backer t-shirt discount, electronic wallpaper, and then a biggie: Gazetteer: Dier Drendal – A supplemental PDF focused on the underground city of Dier Drendal, providing hooks and guidance on how to incorporate it into the Dead Man’s Rust mega-adventure.

Today’s Reason to Celebrate! I just learned this and love it: Monkey Day is an unofficial international holiday celebrated on December 14. The holiday was created and popularized in 2000 by two artists when they were art students and caught on; first among their fellow students and then worldwide. In 2005, Peter Jackson’s King Kong was released on the fifth anniversary of Monkey Day. For Monkey Day 2014, the creators of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb released a short feature starring Crystal the Monkey. Monkey Day celebrates monkeys and “all things simian”, including other non-human primates such as apes, tarsiers, and lemurs. Monkey Day is celebrated worldwide and often also known as World Monkey Day and International Monkey Day.
  10. Hi all, Travis Legge here to talk to you a bit about Frostlands of Fenrilik. As the year wraps up, I wanted to give a quick look back on how this new addition to the Slarecian Vault for Scarred Lands has done so far, what sort of creations it has inspired, and what I would like to see. In case you are unfamiliar with Frostlands of Fenrilik, here’s the blurb: “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. This book is created through the Slarecian Vault Community Content program and is designed to not only permit your party to take their adventures to Fenrilik, but also to allow you to create your own Fenrilik content for release via the Slarecian Vault! Frostlands of Fenrilik includes: Information on the history, geography, civilizations and religions of Fenrilik New rules for travel and survival in the arctic wastes New player options including 3 new races, 4 new subclasses, and 8 new spells Over a dozen new monsters, and guidelines for creating more An introductory adventure designed to take a party from levels 1-3 Exciting stuff, right? Since Frostlands of Fenrilik released, there have been eleven books released for Fenrilik. Of those, we have: Five bestiaries One adventure One character sheet One core setting expansion One new playable race One set of ready-made characters One set of subclasses Each of these offerings have been high-quality and a great deal of fun. These are perfect to add to your Fenrilik campaign, or drop into any snowy, northern, or otherwise frost-covered setting. I’ve featured a few of these offerings on the blog before, and I plan to do a deeper dive into more in the coming weeks, but today I just wanted to illustrate the type of content that is already out there. Hopefully, this breakdown will help you decide what type of content you want to make for Fenrilik. Personally, I always love new adventures and new player options. Adventures save me a ton of time on game prep, even if I make changes, it’s nice to have an outline to fall back on. New player options are always fun and a great way to evoke the feel of the setting. Several classes have not been touched on yet in Fenrilik material, so here is a chance to truly break new ground! I would also like to note that all of the content published on the program so far is for the 5e OGL. The Slarecian Vault explicitly allows Pathfinder 1e products, and I know there is a segment of the fan base who prefer that ruleset, so I would encourage you to adapt some of these items to the Pathfinder ruleset. I would honestly love to see someone make a system guide for Fenrilik for Pathfinder. Lastly, I want to thank the creators who have supported the release of Frostlands of Fenrilik. In addition to the wonderful community content creators who have put out material for the setting, we have had great support from the streaming community. Our friends at Vorpal Tales ran a few games on the Onyx Path Twitch, as did Frostlands of Fenrilik authors Ayli Katt and Sarah Stewart, who you can see every Monday on Scarred Lands: A Family Affair. We have also been fortunate enough to have the fine folks at Nerdsmith run a Fenrilik actual play, as well as the grand gamers of Blackwater DND. I would especially like to thank Kyle Gould for his outreach and coordination with all those actual plays. If you have thoughts on Frostlands of Fenrilik, content you would like to see, or general Scarred Lands feedback, you can let me know in the comments below, at the Onyx Path Forums, or on the official discord! And don’t forget that the Scarred Lands: Dead Man’s Rust Kickstarter is almost at an end! Head over and get instant access to manuscript previews to start your adventure TODAY! – Travis Legge Scarred Lands Developer

  12. Sometimes the critiques thrown at us speak for themselves, and our headline is a fav! Our header picture is also a fav, though for vastly different reasons as it is the cover mock-up for Dead Man’s Rust for our Scarred Lands 5e game line. We’ll be starting its Kickstarter campaign next MONDAY the 23rd at 2pm EST. I emphasize Monday, and sorry for shouting, because starting a campaign on a Monday is something we haven’t done for years, not since the wild and woolly days of early Kickstarter. But we want to have this KS wind up before the Xmas holidays really get started (and so James, our Kickstarter Concierge, can spend time with his family this season without making updates and adding Stretch Goals! So make a note on that Monday start if you are used to us starting on Tuesdays or Thursdays! Travis Legge, our Scarred Lands maestro, sent me this awesome description of Dead Man’s Rust: But wait, there’s more from Travis: Dead Man’s Rust illustration by Michele Giorgi Phew! Now that’s a comprehensive run-down! Hope something in there caught your fancy and we’ll see you Monday the 23rd at the Kickstarter! More Propaganda From Our Meeting Today! I’m guessing a bunch of you may be waiting for word on how things are going to work moving forward with our Paradox licenses. While there isn’t any sort of absolute “here’s how things will work” roadmap as yet, right now the relationship is unchanged, and we’re still discussing together what the future will look like. A couple of things from those discussions I do think some of you might like to hear: First, we have confirmed that we will be offering PoD versions as well as PDFs for those V5 projects connected to Cults of the Blood Gods! That’s Cults itself, as well as the Stretch Goal projects that came out of its Kickstarter. Second, Dixie Cochran and Matthew Dawkins will be appearing in an interview with Outstar on the WoD News stream on Thursday to talk about Onyx Path in general, as well as to highlight the release of Let the Streets Run Red for V5 (see the On Sale section below) in PDF and PoD versions on Wednesday on DTRPG! Check it out, it’s bound to be fun with those two rapscallions! (Outstar could be a rapscallion too, but I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt!) V5 Cults of the Blood Gods art by Drew Tucker We just closed our Community Survey 2020, and huge thanks to all of you who participated! Your responses are going to be really important and helpful to our future planning. While we are still parsing a lot of the questions, and especially your notes and comments, here are a couple of our thoughts from the results: It is really interesting to see how many people are playing online now using Roll20, Astral VTT, Discord, etc. About 2/3 of our respondents. Of course, with Covid we’ve all had to adapt how we are engaging with RPGs and it will be interesting to see how things change and what these platforms will be like in the new year. We got excellent feedback about the Onyx Path Virtual Gaming Convention and more than 2/3s of respondents were interested in one if we do another or had participated in the first one. Certainly with that kind of response, the chances of us doing another really increases. Don’t worry, we’ll give you more warning than the first one if we do another! 76% of respondents also play some form of D&D, so we’re hoping they like all the Dead Man’s Rust hoopla up above. Plus, tying into the VTT question mentioned above, we’re also pushing more Scarred Lands and other game lines’ stuff, including pre-gens and maps, for online play into venues like: https://app.astraltabletop.com/ Certainly, a lot more to come there! And more review of the survey responses in the weeks to come. Tales of Aquatic Terror art by Brian LeBlanc You’ll note that the Wolfenoot Sale I went into last week is coming up this week on DTRPG on Thursday the 19th, and then expect all sorts of sales on DTRPG and IPR to happen like sales happen after Thanksgiving next week. But a really important notice I was asked to include here today is the warning that if you want to order PoDs from DTRPG as holiday gifts, you need to order ASAP. This week at the latest! The effect of Covid on the PoD printer is combining with it’s effect on the USPS as well as the general shipping bog-down during the holiday season to mean that if you order any later they really can’t guarantee delivery in time to wrap it as a gift! So order now! Lot’s of orders! MWA HA HA HA HA HA! Give the gifts that help others share our: Many Worlds, One Path! Blurbs! Kickstarter! Dead Man’s Rust for Scarred Lands starts at 2pm EST on MONDAY, November 23rd! 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. Gauntlet of Spiragos is a Scarred Lands adventure designed for 1st level characters, although it can be easily modified for characters of up to 5th level. Astral TableTop is the easiest way to play any tabletop RPG online, free.

This Wednesday Let the Streets Run Red for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition with PDF and PoD versions available on DTRPG! Politics. Philosophy. War. Brinkmanship. They make a vampire think, feel, and fight for something, whether it be tangible or ethereal. These things give a Kindred meaning. Whether letting the Beast rage in the gun-happy South Side of Chicago, chasing prey around the Loop, plotting out in Gary, or fleeing the Inquisition into the murky swamps of rural Illinois, Chicago always gives a Kindred an activity or two to fill up their nights. The one certainty is that blood will flow. It will flow, and the streets will turn red by the dawn. Let the Streets Run Red includes: Four full stories for play over multiple game sessions, each handling a different core theme from Vampire: The Masquerade. These chronicles can be played independently of each other or in sequence. Deep coverage of the vampire domains of Chicago, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and Gary and some of those cities’ undead inhabitants. A cast of Kindred with biographies, ambitions, intrigues, links to other characters, and ways to include them in any chronicle, whether as antagonists, a supporting cast, or inspiration for playable characters. New Loresheets for inclusion in your game, allowing player characters to start with a foot, claw, or fang already planted in the roots of the chronicles within this book, and beyond. Nine ready-made characters so you can start playing any of the chronicles in this book immediately. Also this Wednesday, the Virtual Tabletop Tools for the Dagger of Spiragos adventure for Scarred Lands 5e goes live on Astral Tabletop! Conventions! Though dates for physical conventions are subject to change due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, here’s what’s left of our current list of upcoming conventions (and really, we’re just waiting for this last one to be cancelled even though it’s Nov/Dec).

Loved his Penguin, his early TV roles on the Twilight Zone and others, and in Rocky. Okay, still too obscure? How about this?

But when you do, you’ll just know.” — Janeka Spencer, Neptune Foundation first responder This jumpstart has everything you need to start playing an adventure in the Trinity Continuum, including: All the rules you need from Trinity Continuum A full adventure, “A Quantum Leap,” ready to run Five ready-made characters for players to pick up and play Also available from DriveThruRPG in print on demand for Trinity Continuum: Æon: Terra Firma!

  17. We’re almost two weeks into the Deluxe WoD20th: Ghost Hunters Kickstarter and it’s getting into the looong plateau before it’s finale on Halloween, October 31st. What interesting with this KS is that we seem to be surprising folks with what material is being revealed to backers. One backer is interested in the Arcanum. It’s mentioned in there. Another, the Benandanti and Necromancy. In there. Today someone noted Numina in the revealed text, and Matthew mentioned that the team used a lot of the previous WoD material, including WoD: Sorcerer. So if you still aren’t sure, and/or you haven’t backed one of our KSs for a few years, please do be aware that we have the complete text and are revealing it throughout the course of this Kickstarter. It’s what we do with our KSs now, and means that if you back the project you will be able to see whether you’re favorite stuff is in there. (And with this team of creators there’s a really solid chance that it will be, as they love working in past WoD material and probably know that world better than our real one! Now, one way that folks have been a bit confused is the idea that these are Ghost Hunters, not Hunters Hunted hunters or Hunter: The Reckoning hunters. In the first case, we did already do a new HH for the 20th Anniversary line, so this is more something that can complement that book and vice versa. (You can find Hunters Hunted 2 on DTRPG). In the second case, Hunter: The Reckoning, we wouldn’t get in there and “stealth” a 20th Anniversary take on them – and even if we did, the text for this book went through several approval passes with the crew and Paradox/White Wolf. While we’d love to do a true H:TR 20th Anniversary, we respect Paradox’s right to make the call on whether that’s something they want created by us. So, no sneaking it in. Cults of the Blood Gods art by Sam Denmark Some shorts bits from the meeting today: Here’s a bit of general Kickstarter news: we’re going to try and have one more KS before the end of the year, or through the end of the year. Everything in the beginning of November is uncertain nationally, so we have to leave some room as we see what actually happens. Right now, that looks like the Scarred Lands mega-adventure Dead Man’s Rust as it is the most flexible in terms of it not being a license, so no external approval periods; relatively modular, so we can release a bunch of it at once if we need to compress the KS or expand it and subdivide the sections; and it is being developed by Travis Legge, who has both his own skill-set and 5e knowledge, as well as his writing team’s, to draw on if we need any emergency changes due to circumstances outside our control. (Sorry to bring real-world events into our many worlds of imagination, but as a company we have to deal with these sorts of things as they do impact our hobby). Cults of the Blood Gods art by Amy Wilkins Here’s a happy bit of info: today is Mirthful Mike Chaney’s wedding anniversary! Congrats, Mike and Di! There’s also some additional good news for the Mirthful One: Mike Chaney’s new art help. Yep, we have arranged for a bunch of new freelance art directing and layout folks to work with Mike under his direction. We’re hoping this gives us a jumpstart in those areas that have gotten a bit bogged down through no fault of Mike’s. On the Wikipedia page for “work ethic” there’s a picture of Mirthful Mike, so… just sayin’. The Prestige Edition Chronicles of Darkness books sale at Indie Press Revolution (IPR) continues and has been so strong that Beast: The Primordial traditional printed hardcovers have sold out, with the first Dark Eras collection right behind with only a few copies left! https://www.indiepressrevolution.com/xcart/Deals-and-Specials/ These are the copies we overprinted after their Kickstarters, and don’t worry, you can still get the PDF and PoD versions at DTRPG.com! M20 Technocracy Reloaded art by Sam Denmark That news is pretty exciting, and I’ve also been having a lot of fun with the concept art work for the peoples for the fantasy MMO half of Trinity Continuum: Anima. I need to come up with their look in order to then create the thumb-nail sketch of the cover of TC: Anima to get to the cover artist. Since the fantasy world they live in is at its heart an MMO, we’re looking at needing a consistent look for the player character and PC peoples, the various flora and fauna, all of it. In ways we haven’t really approached for years! Which is a lot of fun to work on! Of course, we always love creating new worlds – and we actually have many more that we will be revealing as time goes on into 2021.

Here’s episode one! https://youtu.be/QUFVS4g6gDg If you missed Virtual Tabletop Gaming Live, please check out our video from the convention where Dixie interviews Matthew regarding They Came from Beyond the Grave! https://youtu.be/VyWrpJtWZ7w From the same convention, here’s Danielle Lauzon being interviewed by Dixie regarding Trinity Continuum!

This app has you covered.) We’re told that the App Dev is currently creating an updated version for the latest devices, so keep an eye open for those! Virtual TableTop! 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. Gauntlet of Spiragos is a Scarred Lands adventure designed for 1st level characters, although it can be easily modified for characters of up to 5th level. Astral TableTop is the easiest way to play any tabletop RPG online, free.

More of a commemoration, and one I usually skip for these but today the anniversary lands right on today. Nine years ago was the infamous Black Wednesday at CCP/White Wolf when a very large swathe of the employees working on the WoD MMO were fired, a group with a large percentage of folks who had been hired into the original White Wolf. The fact that in a couple of months it will be the 9th anniversary of the founding of Onyx Path Publishing is entirely coincidental. Not.

  22. That’s right! The Kickstarter for They Came From the Grave! starts at 2pm EDT on Tuesday the 21st, which is tomorrow as I write this. Grave! focuses on the tropes and themes of horror films and TV shows that came out throughout the 60s and into the 70s – and because so many of them were also based in a sorta-Victorian era, we have rules for that in there too! Travel back in time through magic or science. Relive the experiences of your ancestors ala past-lives. Play through what you found described in one of their worm-eaten journals. Or just play in that earlier time period – there are a lot of ways to time-slip in They Came From Beyond the Grave!. If the old Universal Monsters were the first round of film horror, then the advent of Hammer Studios, American International (especially with films helmed by Roger Corman), and Amicus, plus various horror-themed TV shows, gave us a new sort of horror. Often action-packed and more physical, and always bloodier and gorier than those that came before, they also brought in a more overt sexuality. Sometimes that manifested in kinkier characters and sometimes in (s)exploitative scenes and dialogue (and costuming). It’s said that at one point during his career working on Hammer films that Christopher Lee was receiving more fan letters from women than any other actor in Europe, no doubt helped by his notable physical presence as Dracula. Just like in They Came From Beyond the Sea!, we take those sorts of cultural mores of the times the films were created to note and use them in ways designed to be fun to play for modern audiences. That’s part of the core gaming experience we’re aiming at with the They Came From…! game lines. They’re designed so that you can play them “straight from the box” settings, with the option of including as much of the meta-devices as you want. For example, the Quips and Cinematics can be sparse or non-existent, or they are fired in a mile a minute in a paean to the joy of the cinematic standards of the time. Your characters can be people of the time the game is set in, or the time the films were made, or modern people with our sensibilities and expectations. Players can deconstruct the hell out of the setting, or create an homage to the sorts of films and time periods the game lines focus on. So, yes, the They Came From…! games provide all the needed material to go from a serious, even dark, setting all the way to a laugh-a-minute cross between riffing on old films ala Mystery Science Theater 3000 and a fill in the blanks card game. We needed to provide as much structure as possible to enable humor at the table. Because, as they say, dying is easy, comedy is hard. Just to give you an idea of the range I’m talking about, there are four different links below in our Onyx Path Media section. Three are to very different Actual Play sessions, and one is to the brilliant trailer for They Came From Beyond the Grave! created by filmmaker/artist/writer/cool guy Larry Blamire. Each of them present a totally accurate way to play – any one of which might be the way your table wants to play. Check us out on Kickstarter tomorrow if ANY of that piques your interest! Grave! illustration by Durwin Talon What About the Buried Bones? Well, not only was that a reference to digging up some of the inside stuff for Grave!, it was also a reference to the two Realms of Pugmire PDFs and PoDs going on sale this week! Pirates of Pugmire will be available in PDF and PoD versions this Wednesday, even while the traditionally printed version enabled by the Kickstarter campaign is getting ready to ship from our printers to our KS fulfillers. Then there’s Buried Bones, subtitled Creating in the Realms of Pugmire, which wasn’t attached to a KS, and contains a lot of Eddy’s thoughts on Pugmire (and the Monarchies of Mau) with background info and info on how to create adventures for the setting. It’s also coming out in PDF and physical book PoD versions on Weds. Seems like this would be super-useful for folks planning on adding projects to the Canis Minor Community Content site! Pirates of Pugmire illustration by Pat Loboyko Hey, look at this: That’s for 100,000 downloads of the Onyx Pathcast! Huge congrats to Dixie, Matthew, and Eddy for years of weekly Pathcasts exploring ours and other company’s game lines every week, taking Deep Dives into specific games (like the They Came From Beyond the Grave! one going live on Friday), their insightful interviews of industry professionals, and all the farty horns, wresting references, and digressions that they are rightly known for! While the Terribly Terrific Trio, or the Terrifically Terrible Trio depending on your PoV, do foster a light-hearted, irreverent, and quick-witted atmosphere during the Onyx Pathcast, they do also talk about the challenges of creating artful games in the TTRPG business. From the Dreaded Deadline Doom, to the Care and Feeding of Creative Folks, to trying to stay focused on the projects you love while the world goes topsy-turvey, Eddy, Dixie, and Matthew manage to cover some serious topics without loosing that spark of fun that makes this thing of ours so special. Again, congrats! Titanomachy illustration by Andrea Payne Hopefully, I can bring up this next topic as carefully as the Trio do with such things, but that’s actually the point, I guess. As a company, we’ve signed up our Onyx Path Monday Meeting crew to attend Sensitivity Training Workshops starting this Wednesday and into August. As a group, we talk to many different people in the course of doing our jobs (nevermind non-job time), and we’d like to do that better. We’d like to be able to communicate better, and to be more aware of how we are coming across – especially as we continue to bring more diverse creators into the TTRPG biz. Finally, if you get a chance, take a look at all those projects at press down there at the end of the project progress section! I think these are the most projects we’ve ever had finishing up printing at the same time. Some of that is, of course, due to the slow-downs in printing and shipping due to Covid-19, and some of it has been Mirthful Mike Chaney gettin’ it done! Combined, we’re getting the decks cleared so that more projects can get finished up, and therefore more projects can get started. It’s the Circle of Life, or something like that. End of the day, we’re making the games you love set in our: Many Worlds, One Path! Blurbs! Kickstarter! They Came From Beyond the Grave! Goes live on Tuesday the 21st at 2pm EDT! Here’s a specially-made special trailer by the brilliant Larry Blamire: And keep your eyes open for: Onyx Path Media! Congratulations on achieving over 100,000 DOWNLOADS!

This Wednesday, the Pirates of Pugmire come sailing in, in PDF and PoD versions, both on DTRPG! Large portions of the sea remain unexplored and uncharted, denying pirates the assurance of a safe journey home. If treasure is found, there’s always a hostile crew or two out there on the waves, lying in wait to raid returning ships. And twisted corpses of dead sea life animated by Unseen forces haunt the waves. It takes an extra level of grit to brave the Acid Sea. Do you have what it takes?

One small step for a man: in 1969 Apollo 11’s crew successfully makes the first manned landing on the Moon in the Sea of Tranquility. Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin become the first humans to walk on the Moon six and a half hours later. Which we reference in a bunch of our games, but for me, it’s a strong childhood memory of watching the moonwalk on the small, scratchy, b&w TV we moved into my parent’s bedroom. They had the only room AC (it would take years before we could afford to catch up to the other houses in the neighborhood and get full-house AC) and it was a hot and humid Philly July night. Right before the news broke in with the Special Broadcast, Jerry Lewis’s The Nutty Professor was on (I think it was Channel 10, Philly folks), and I was afraid of the transformation scenes. Our parents tried to impress on us the importance of what we were seeing, but it was near midnight, and it was all we could do to stay awake that far. After the single greatest achievement mankind had achieved in surpassing the bounds of Earth, we just wanted to get to sleep. Yet, I still remember it all as it happened.

  24. Monte Cook Games is at Gen Con Online 2020. If you're taking part in The Best Four Days in Gaming this year, we hope to see you there! The post Gen Con Online 2020 appeared first on Monte Cook Games.
  25. This is a quick write-up I did for anyone interested in participating in the group outing Autumn will invite the teens to on her family's property. There's no obligation to be involved, obviously- my thought is that it would be a good opportunity for roleplay, character development (specifically with regard to some short-term aspirations), and general shenanigans apart from all the externally-driven drama of the plot. If your PC would be interested, they're welcome to attend! We can work out the "hows" and "whys" in Discord. That being said, it will be brought up IC in some fashion as well, to give people the opportunity to ask questions or make suggestions. If there are any specifically OOC questions, comments, or concerns, I'd like to hear them! -Vivi Group Camping Proposal Location: The campsite is a broad, roughly circular clearing of mostly bare, packed earth on the edge of a slow-moving creek, surrounded on three sides by tall, narrow pines and a few smaller deciduous species. There is a fire pit dug in the center for cooking and heat, and plenty of seasoned firewood already stacked between a pair of small trees. There is no running water, no wifi, no electricity- no man-made hookups or tech at all. That means no microwave, no USB charger, and no plumbing. Phones and GPS still work, but the absence of development makes the place feel more remote than it actually is. In the event of an emergency: the site is roughly 4 miles from Autumn’s house (~2 miles off the road from her grandparents’ driveway). An ATV could get back there without much problem, but the trail isn’t meant for full-sized vehicle traffic. Getting back there: Autumn’s mom is willing to allow a few (3-4) vehicles parked in the driveway overnight, so carpooling may be a good idea. It’s entirely possible to walk the entire distance in about an hour and a half, or less if the pace is more than “leisurely” (at least one character intends to do this). What to bring: This is just a list of practical recommendations and suggestions to give you an idea of what your character might want or need to have on-hand. It’s not intended to be exhaustive or all-encompassing. -Entertainment. Cards, books, musical instruments, fishing tackle and gear, games, or your own personal electronic devices and charge packs- whatever your character would want to do with 1-2 days away from everything. A few of the bulky/expensive items could probably be foraged from Autumn’s house, or her grandparents’ garage, if someone really wants a canoe or kayak or something. Other ideas: Star charts, binoculars, a journal, homework (ugh), etc. -Food and drinks. Water. For practical purposes, the creek water can be safely boiled, but you’ll want plenty to drink depending on activity level. Stuff for meals and the means to cook them will be provided, but snacks or anything special your character wants/requires will need to be brought along. -Clothes. Basic, sturdy, comfortable outdoor wear. Good quality sneakers or hiking boots (preferred). Light jacket for early morning and evening temps in the 40s; layers are a good idea. Whatever your character needs to do the stuff they enjoy- swim clothes, towel, sandals, etc. -Basic necessities. Standard toiletries, whatever your character needs for general good hygiene. Insect repellent (more for ticks than mosquitoes). Sunscreen. The usual. There’s a first-aid kit, but it never hurts to have more than one. Flashlight and/or lantern. -A bag. You will need this to put your trash in. -A tent, sleeping bag, blanket, pillow, etc. Autumn can furnish a couple, but either everyone’s cramming into 2-3 tents, or other people will need to chip in. -Folding chair, blanket, beach towel, etc. to sit on. The (Basic) Rules of the Site: -If you bring it in, you take it out. If it’s here when you arrive, it stays. -If you don’t know what it is, don’t touch it. -Do nothing to alter the camp site. -Don’t feed the animals. Who's invited?: All core PCs. Considerations: https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/hygiene-sanitation.html?series=intro-to-backpacking https://www.timeanddate.com/weather/@5677433/historic?month=8&year=2019
