  3. Chicago by Night This week’s actual play spotlight shifts to the fine team over at Red Moon Roleplaying, who hosted an immensely popular actual play of The Sacrifice, from V5 Chicago by Night. The game’s Storyteller was our frequent freelance writer Klara Horskjær Herbøl, with Matthew Dawkins, Craig Austin, and Hjalmar Nordén as players. In this story, we see the dysfunctional coterie struggle with many moral and political quandaries, not the least of which is whether the Lasombra will be permitted to join the Camarilla! You can find the full playlist for the Sacrifice here: https://www.redmoonroleplaying.com/podcast/tag/The+Sacrifice You can buy Chicago by Night from a multitude of venues, including: Indie Press Revolution (traditionally printed) Studio 2 (traditionally printed) Amazon (traditionally printed) Modiphius (traditionally printed) DriveThruRPG (print on demand and PDF)
  4. Hello friends! We’re going to be doing a regular spotlight on some of the fantastic actual plays that have been organised and run for games we publish. Some of them have been hosted or broadcast on our Twitch or YouTube channels, others are on podcasts or via media separate to our channels, but each of them deserves recognition for the excellent work they’re doing bringing new eyes to our games. The first spotlight goes to the ongoing Littlebrook: Reunion, a Changeling: The Lost chronicle run by Chris of The Primogen YouTube channel. This game has covered many highs and lows, along with much of the adored tragedy, hope, and horror of Changeling: The Lost. Not only does Chris invest time and energy crafting his wonderful story, his players routinely bring stellar performances to their show. You can find Littlebrook: Reunion in a couple of places! If you want to view this chronicle live and up to date, check it out over on our Twitch channel: https://twitch.tv/theonyxpath If you want to watch the library of existing sessions of Littlebrook: Reunion, you can find them on this playlist on our YouTube channel. And if you’re interested in buying a copy of Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition, here’s a few links for where you can pick up copies: DriveThruRPG (Print on Demand and PDF) Studio 2 Publishing (Traditionally Printed)
  5. Thursday Night After talking with Sean, Cade had gone home and hidden the rifle. Only Haruka and his mother were home. He sighed, not caring about where his father was now, and pulled out his phone. It was nearly ten, late but he knew the person he wanted to talk to was still up. He couldn't recall having called Devin before, and wasn't all that surprised when it went to voicemail so he left a simple message. "Hey Devin, it's Cade. I'd like to talk about some things. I'm heading to Bunnies, and I'm buying if you'd like to meet me there. " With that he head to Bunnies, and went and sat in the booth the Fellowship normally sat in, made his order and waited. He had a feeling Devin would come, possibly thinking this was about Marissa. He wasn't planning on discussing her at all really, he had other reasons for this, but as an older brother himself, he knew he'd give the speech to any boy she ever brought home. He sighed, waiting for either Devin to show up, or his food to arrive, wondering which would first. It was strange, in as much as he really did expect Devin to show.
  6. Thursday Night 7pm After revealing he had indeed managed to somehow keep hold of the rifle he took from the prison, later on Sean had revealed an interest in it. It was after school, nearly seven at night, as Cade had had to take care of some work before he could head over to Sean's. The rifle and clips were folded up in his backpack, and he smiled as he pulled up at Sean's. He quietly made his way to the barn, where he'd agreed to meet up with Sean, and chuckled. "Anyone else, they'd probably wonder just what the hell's going on." He knocked on the door, and waited. He knew enough about firearms being a hunter, but this was so far beyond simple rifles and shotguns, he hadn't really felt too comfortable doing much with it, It would be better to have Sean look at it, and then maybe figure out just what all the weapon, and perhaps the ammunition could do. "Hey Sean, it's Cade, you home?" In his other hand he had two pizzas, a meatlovers for himself, and one with pepperoni, bacon, green olives, and mushrooms for Sean.

  8. Cade Allister Cade is on steroids, how else could he have set the records he set in track practice? Cade is the latest victim of the Terror Twins, the Jauntsens. Their debauchery has claimed one of the last innocent souls in Shelly High. Cade is dating Marissa to make Lilly Pryor Jealous. All the squirrels in the area are slave to Cade's will. Cade's actually a genius, he just chooses to only apply himself to sports to give everyone else a chance. Dating women is a sham, Cade is secretly in a forbidden relationship with Mr. Bancroft. The Allister family has "A Past" Mr. Bancroft is a criminal mastermind, living off his last big score. Hiring the son of the sheriff is just ironic camoflage. Ian Allister isn't Cade's real dad. Cade's mother learned something she shouldn't have, this is why she died. Cade's actually a superpowered alien hiding his power in a small Montana town. Cade hired the guys who beat Liam Day

  10. Type: Features Banner: Text: Over the past few weeks, we have been monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and closely following the situation and adjusting as recommended by local governments. That means Wizards of the Coast is working from home as we continue to craft new D&D stories and supplements for our fans. Some D&D streaming programming will be disrupted during this time, including introductions of new series, but we’re working hard on that front to provide as much entertainment as possible. We believe the social connection playing games, including D&D, can continue to be helpful for those of us who feel isolated or alone in our homes in order to stay safe from transmission. As social distancing impacts our ability to get together in person, we wanted to offer the following resources and advice for more remote play—many of which are free. On behalf of the D&D Team, we want to encourage everyone to stay safe and take all necessary precautions. Please take care, and hang in there everyone. Tips & Tricks To help support fans playing D&D digitally, we’ve put together a few tips and tricks for safely enjoying D&D with others without breaking out your 10-foot poles. Basic Rules The Basic Rules for fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons are available for free! Download the free 180-page PDF which includes information on how to create a character, how to play the game, 120 spell descriptions, and tips for Dungeon Masters. Everything you need to start playing Dungeons & Dragons can be found here! Virtual Spaces Taverns can take on many forms. While it may not be advisable to meet in an actual tavern, you can still gather your party before venturing forth. Utilize virtual tabletop platforms like Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds if you prefer using battle maps and minis. You can even find new groups to adventure with online! Manage your campaign virtually using D&D Beyond. D&D Adventurer’s League content can be played and logged from the comfort of your own home. Learn more about how to organize an official Adventurer’s League game here. If you don’t require a battle map and minis to play, programs like Skype, Zoom, and Discord are great for both voice and video chat and free to download. Dice No dice? No problem! If you find yourself dice-less you can still roll a natural 20. We have resurrected an ancient and arcane dice roller for all your digital dice rolling needs. As James Wyatt discovered a few years ago, virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa can roll a d4, d6, d8, d10, d20, or d100. Just ask! Consider the DIY route and create your own paper chits by numbering cardstock pieces and drawing from a hat or bowl to simulate rolling. You’ll be playing D&D like folks in 1977! Support content creators Many content creators in the community may be impacted by the current situation. Check out their work on the Dungeon Master’s Guild and consider tossing a few coins their way if you are able. You can also support the online streaming community by watching other adventures. Check out the Dungeons & Dragons category on Twitch and find a new group to watch. These are just a few ways to enjoy Dungeons & Dragons with your friends and loved ones. Let us know what other solutions you find so we can share them with the wider community! More About Online Tools D&D Beyond Your digital D&D source: fifth edition tools, rules, races, classes, items, spells, monsters and more! D&D Beyond aims to enhance the Dungeons & Dragons experience by making game management easier by putting all of the game information you need to tell fantastic stories with your friends into a digital format, eliminating the need to manually search through books, and taking the load off of players through other features. Learn more at: dndbeyond.com. Fantasy Grounds Fantasy Grounds is an application acting as a virtual online gaming table primarily intended for pen-and-paper style narrative roleplaying games (such as Dungeons & Dragons). Designed to perform many of the things you can do while playing at a conventional gaming table and move it online. Run games as the Dungeon Master or take part as a player, the application provides all the necessary tools to communicate, manage information and perform tasks such as rolling the dice or creating drawings. Learn more at: fantasygrounds.com. Roll20 With the award-winning Roll20 virtual tabletop, you can play Dungeons & Dragons with friends across the world. It's free-to-use, browser based, and features a full suite of tools to quickly build characters, roll dice, and run any campaign. Roll20 provides a rich toolset including a character builder, map tools, dynamic lighting, video and voice chat, and a powerful dice roller. Explore full digital conversions of official D&D content, including ready-to-play adventures, drag-and-drop monsters, integrated rulebooks, and more. Learn more at: Roll20.net.

  11. We know one book isn’t necessarily enough to satisfy you while you’re in isolation. All this week, Onyx Path has you covered with some amazing free offers. Today’s gift to you: Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition! These are the final days- The signs are clear: Even our pups know That this is the age of the Apocalypse! Werewolf the Apocalypse roared into hobby games in 1992, inspiring a generation of fans to stand up and howl their defiance at a corrupted world in a battle they knew they were doomed to lose. WTA presented the Garou: creatures at once both man and wolf, and filled with a Rage against the evils that would destroy and corrupt both the natural and spirit worlds. Capable of transforming into a variety of forms and blessed with Gifts that enabled superhuman and supernatural powers, the Garou fought many foes, always knowing that in the end they would fall. But what stories would be told and what songs sang of their exploits! This epic tragic story, combined with the unwavering dedication of an unparalleled fan base, is the reason this book is being published. Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition brings the entire World of Darkness experience full circle and will serve as the perfect anniversary milestone to celebrate two decades of gaming the epic sagas of the Garou. What’s in it? All thirteen original tribes, tribe variants and Lost Tribes, with their signature Gifts and Rites updated from the Werewolf: The Apocalypse Revised tabletop rules. Rules for character creation and advancement. Gifts from level one through six, including expanded lists. Updated setting to the modern nights. New full-color original art by Ron Spencer, John Bridges, Steve Prescott, Dan Brereton, Richard Kane Ferguson, and other classic “Apocalypse” artists, as well as classic B&W pieces carefully chosen from the earlier editions.
  12. In which the trio is joined by Danielle Lauzon to talk about Spilled Blood for Vampire: The Requiem, among other things. A bit of off-topic banter We talk about COVID-19 and some politics/economics; skip from 6:30 to 11:00 if you’re not interested Some chat about sensitively playing disease as a threat in Vampire Disease in gaming talk, including some real-world examples, takes us to 24:15 or so (as a content warning) We finally get around to Spilled Blood! Why Danielle put in ten new bloodlines Explaining the Parliamentarians and the Penumbrae Some chatting about lost clans Weirder antagonists, like amaranthine cats and blood worms Playable options!

  13. Our next Kickstarter is for the Legendlore RPG, and starts on this Thursday, March the 12th, at 2pm Eastern US time! From the Kickstarter: This comes hard on the heels of our fantastic Kickstarter campaign for Hunter: The Vigil 2e, which ended up at over 500% of the funding goal and just a couple of folks away from 2000 backers! Truly, the Vigil was a rewarding one, and we’re thrilled so many folks came along with us on the hunt. Even though we’re jumping right into the new KS for Legendlore, Hunter 2e‘s campaign left us with a number of Stretch Goal projects to continue with, and, for us, Legendlore is such a different kind of project that creatively it is a nice break in our recent string of Kickstarters in the Chronicles of Darkness and V5 game worlds. Legendlore will also be our newest game line to use the d20 system for 5e fantasy gaming, along with Scarred Lands and (much-simplified) the Realms of Pugmire, so that also gives us a chance to stretch some system creative muscles we like to keep toned up. If you’re a fan of D&D, etc. then I think you’ll find a lot of fresh spins you’ll enjoy in how Legendlore treats genre expectations and tropes while still providing a sweeping setting ripe for adventuring in. And if you aren’t so much, I still think you may find value in supporting developer Steffie de Vaan and her creative team’s 2020 take on this multi-decade saga and setting. Like almost every one of our Kickstarters these days, Legendlore is pretty much finished in the writing stages, and backers will get sections of the finished text during the course of the KS campaign. Steffie is working with at least one Twitch streaming group to create actual play episodes showing how Legendlore plays at an actual gaming table, and we’re really looking forward to airing those (and they’ll be linked on the KS page). So, anyone interested is going to have multiple chances to check this project out in a way that works for them, as we’ve been working to set up with each of our KSs. And, James Bell, our Kickstarter Concierge will be back for this KS to once again provide information and guidance, as well as his patented affable banter! V5 Chicago Folio art by Felipe Gaona Items From Our Monday Meeting: In no particular order, which is a lot like our meeting style! DriveThruRPG‘s massive GM’s Day Sale has another week to go, and hoo-boy are there a lot of our PDFs for sale over there! All of our game lines are represented, as well as offerings from the Community Content sites! This was a Twitter note sent out during our meeting by Eddy Webb: “Thanks to Justin Achilli, I got to be in a work meeting where we talk about the aesthetics of urine and throwing bears at the moon.” Which is pretty much true. Mighty Matt McElroy was scheduled to attend Emerald City convention this coming weekend, but the whole con was postponed due to concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). He’d already had a bunch of meetings cancelled out from under him and was figuring on cancelling, when boop! the convention cancelled instead! You folks all take care of yourselves out there! We’re a virtual office, so aren’t going to infect each other, and we don’t have anything currently being manufactured in China, so I’m just encouraging all our folks to stay in and work 20 hour days at their computers. (I’m kidding.) (But not really.) Mirthful Mike Chaney wonders how that’s any different than his usual day, anyway? They Came From Beneath the Sea! Heroic Land Dwellers art by Brian LeBlanc We’re still getting folks asking about whether projects that come out as Advance PDFs will be released in PoD versions or if Backer PDFs will be sold to the public, along with PoDs, on DTRPG. First, we’re always glad to answer folks’ questions, and second, yes, our sales strategy has always been to deliver PDFs and PoDs of projects on DTRPG and so we have been releasing them that way for the whole time we’ve been in business. The only caveats to that are projects we might do like printed Screens offered on Kickstarters, which DTRPG can’t create in PoD form, and recently with the V5 Cults of the Blood Gods Stretch Goal rewards which will only be available in PDF as the V5 managers at Modiphius do not want PoD versions made available. We’ve scheduled a nice surprise for the backers of Exalted 3rd‘s Dragon-Blooded KS that should put some folks’s concerns to rest about getting their rewards. So keep your eyes open for that, DB backers! I’m out next Monday, so Dixie Cochran will be in as our guest MMN blogger! Please be nice to her as she wrangles the rusty and arcane controls for this blog, and I’ll talk to you in two weeks about our: Many Worlds, One Path! BLURBS! Kickstarter! On Thursday, March 12th at 2pm Eastern US Time we start the Kickstarter for Legendlore! Onyx Path Media!

As we find ways to enable our community to more easily play our games, the Onyx Dice Rolling App is live! Our dev team has been doing updates since we launched based on the excellent use-case comments by our community, and this thing is awesome! (Seriously, you need to roll 100 dice for Exalted? This app has you covered.) Update: the devs are working on the updates for the roller in both Android and iOS – here is the rundown from them: 1) Redo the UI for system for android. It will look the same as the current design. My goal is to have something ready by Saturday to send out to the Facebook users, asking them if this fixes the issues. This will be a beta type thing. This will break several of the fancy dice. 2) If the above worked out and the android users give all the clear, we’ll redo the graphics system to fix the fancy dice that got broken. We’ll do another android beta through Facebook. This might take up to two weeks, as my schedule allows. 3) If everything worked well, we’ll release to android for real at that point. 4) Port all of the existing stuff to iOS and release on that. On Amazon and Barnes & Noble! You can now read our fiction from the comfort and convenience of your Kindle (from Amazon) and Nook (from Barnes & Noble).

Yesterday was International Women’s Day, and that’s certainly worth celebrating today as well! (Especially since here in the US we lost an hour from yesterday due to the return of our Daylight Savings Time. Typical). Today, we heard of the death of actor Max von Sydow at 90. The man who played chess with death, acted in just so many roles in mainstream and genre films that I’m not listing them here, and, just for Matthew Dawkins, starred as Ming the Merciless.

About the Guest: Scott Sutherland Scott Sutherland is a meteorologist and science writer for The Weather Network. There, he shares his enthusiasm for weather, astronomy and space, using writing and storytelling skills he honed over more than 40 years of playing Dungeons & Dragons. Scott is an avid LEGO builder, and he has designed some innovative paper & cardstock terrain pieces for the campaigns he's played in over the years (including an astral sailing ship, Baba Yaga's Hut, & some really cool vehicles and set pieces for Gamma World!). He has even worked on writing projects with the legendary Gary Gygax! As a meteorologist, Scott's passion for weather has looped back into his gaming. Partly, this is by contemplating a Tempest Cleric or a Storm Sorcerer for some future game, but also in thinking about how to use weather as a storytelling tool in campaign and adventure planning, and how it can act as both a boon and a bane to characters during encounters.

There. She said it. Enough pretending to want to break out of her comfort zone. She’s a magic-user. She’s also the brand lead for Avalon Hill and loves talking about that one time she played Diplomacy and SOMEONE (okay, it was Ben Petrisor) stabbed her in the back and took over her beloved Russia. If you enjoy tales of sorcery, board game upheavals, and reasons her 3 year-old is crying (HINT: She tried to make him eat a Nutella crepe), find Shelly on Twitter and Facebook.
