Onyx Path: “Your Project Is In Review” [Monday Meeting Notes]


Recommended Posts

http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Dane-Madgwick-Scion-Demigod-Screen-1-1024x683.jpg

This week, all our art shown will be from Scion: Demigod, whose Backer PDF is slated to go out to backers for review this week. We’re all really looking forward to hearing what backers (and eventually, non-backers) think about it!

Our title, however, is quoted from the notice you get after submitting a Kickstarter campaign to KS. Which I did last week with the one for Exalted: Exigents. So, we’re playing the waiting game, even though we’d rather be playing Hungry, Hungry, Hippos!

But that’s how it works with KS, and we do have other approvals to jump through as well, and then we can start the Exigents KS. Hopefully. So progress is happening, but generally on a low-key level as opposed to any big news or announcements this week.

With that in mind as our theme, or motif, or mood, for this week’s Monday Meeting, I’ll just run down the topics we hit on in the meeting today. If you have any questions about them (or anything else, really) please feel free to bring them up in the comments!

This is the last week for this month’s Onyx Path 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Exalted 3rd game line and here’s a reminder that you’ve got that week to take advantage of the 90% off sale of listed EX3 PDFs. I’ve seen mention on our social media from folks who picked up a few of the PDFs they were missing, or who decided to give EX3 a try because of the sale, and it’s great to hear!

Glad this sale could give our community a chance to read through game books and whole lines they might not have checked out otherwise!

For physical books, you can also check out the IPR Exalted sale for deluxe books and screens, which also ends at the end of April, and the DTRPG Best of Print Sale that contains a whole bunch of our books at a discount for Print On Demand.

(Links to all these sales are below in the Sales area).

May begins another focus on a different game line. I wasn’t going to tell you what it is origin-ally, but I’d have to be a hero to hold out and not tell you. Yet, the celebration (and the sales) don’t really start until Monday, May 2, so maybe knowing that I’ll be spilling the beans on the blog that day will allow me make it until then.

The Onyx Pathcast has been stuffed to the brim all month with Exalted episodes, and this final week is no exception as host Dixie chairs a roundtable of Exalted 3e creators talking in-depth about the state of Exalted 3e right now. This Friday on the Onyx Pathcast – sounds like a can’t-miss episode for Exalted fans!

Another ongoing series for anyone interested in the thinking that goes into our games (or any game theory in general) is Eddy and Danielle’s Lunch and Crunch on our Twitch account, which will feature both charming hosts delving into the importance and challenges of playtesting – at noon Eastern US time this Tuesday (tomorrow as I write this).

Finally, the SFWA (Science Fiction Writers of America) is holding a charity auction that will have open seats for playing in Eddy and Matthew’s donated games! That will be running Monday May 9 to Monday May 16, and is a sweet chance to play with those creators for charity. We’ll post links for that event when we get ’em!

Short ‘n’ sweet this week! Can’t always be writing treatises on the state of the company, creative procedures, and visual design. After all, things ebb and flow after:

Ten Years, Many Worlds, One Path!


BLURBS!

Conventions!

Because dates for physical conventions are subject to change due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, we don’t yet have a list of upcoming physical conventions. Instead, keep an eye out here for more virtual conventions we’re going to be involved with!

Tabletop Scotland is due to take place on 27th and 28th August 2022 and will play host to at least four Onyx Pathers running our games and sitting on panels live and there in the room with you! If you’re UK or Europe based, it’s an excellent con to visit and within traveling distance from Edinburgh, which takes flights from a lot of places! Consider paying Tabletop Scotland a visit. https://tabletopscotland.co.uk/

Right now, we’re planning the 3rd Onyx Path Virtual Con in June.

This year’s Onyx Path Publishing Virtual Convention page is now live on Start Playing Games:

https://startplaying.games/event/onyx-path

Check it out now for the GM sign-ups section if you want to run games during the con. More info on events and panels and all yet to come!
