Latest Updates from Our Project:

June 2020 Update
1 day ago – Tue, Jun 30, 2020 at 07:38:58 AM

Hello Arisen,

No major updates for this month (our project is still in the earliest stages of the post-kickstarter process), but wanted to make sure I continue my monthly update posts to track all of our rewards and continue to share any info about the project (and other Onyx Path projects) so we're all in the loop.

Write it, cut it, paste it, save it

I do want to share this exciting bit of fun! As you may know, Onyx Path hosted a Virtual Gaming Convention earlier this month, featuring interesting panels discussing their processes and projects as well as other relevant topics. You can check out the videos on their Twitch Channel or search #OnxyPathCon on Youtube.

BUT, best of all, they (and their partners at Gehenna Gaming) ran some great Onyx Path games, including Mummy: The Curse Second Edition! Now you can watch this Actual Play session!

MUMMY: THE CURSE ACTUAL PLAY

Travel through time with Mummy: The Curse, a Chronicles of Darkness 2E game. Run by Gehenna Gaming GM and Co-Founder Rick Wheeler.

Aside from some convention playtest games I've heard about, this is my first time seeing a game of Mummy 2e in action. That's pretty cool.

FINAL DAYS ON KICKSTARTER

Grab your friends and escape to another world!

You've found an enchanted portal — a transition point — between worlds. The portal, called a Crossing, takes you to a world you thought only existed in novels and films: a magical land where dragons roam the skies, orcs and hobgoblins terrorize weary travelers, and unicorns prance through the forest. It is a world where humans join other peoples such as elves, trolls, dwarves, changelings, and the dreaded creatures who steal the night. It is a world of fantasy — of imagination.

It is the Realm.

It is Legendlore.

Final Week on Kickstarter!

May 2020 Update
about 1 month ago – Fri, May 29, 2020 at 05:15:10 PM

Hello Arisen,

We're in the final week of May and it's time for our regular month end status update.

Time. Non-linear. Something something pun.

Before we review our current reward status, I just wanted to note a recent Chronicles of Darkness release that may be of interest.

Now available in PDF and print from Storytellers Vault: Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras 2!

For millennia, monsters have hunted and fought alongside us…

Rebellions swell and vampires feed. Casualties of war draw Reapers to blood-soaked battlefields. Gilded ages benefit mortals and monsters alike.

How? Why? What role do the monsters play with us —- and each other?

Dark Eras 2 explores 13 new eras scattered throughout the history of the Chronicles of Darkness. Each chapter features two to three game lines which include Vampire: The RequiemMage: The AwakeningHunter: The VigilChangeling: The Lost, and more!

The rules in this book are compatible with second edition Chronicles of Darkness. Each terrifying time period and location is examined through the supernatural creatures that dwell there.

Unlock the past. Find out what hides in the shadows.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • Historically inspired settings and story hooks
  • Character-creation tips and gameplay advice
  • New Tilts, Conditions, and era-appropriate rules

Because of general quarantine conditions, we wanted to make it easier for you to get the stuff you wanted in order to play your games, so like Dark Eras 1, we also broke out the individual chapters as separate products:

April 2020 Update
2 months ago – Tue, Apr 28, 2020 at 01:41:47 PM

Hello Arisen,

Wow, I had wondered what it would be like to experience time in a nonlinear fashion, and I think I've hit that point. Is it really a month since our last status update? I'm pretty sure that was yesterday.

Let's get to it!

Ready to download new information.

The most recent Monday Meeting Notes has the latest status on our projects, and has again used Endless Death instead of Lasting Death, so I'm going to update my list...next month!

JUST LAUNCHED ON KICKSTARTER + FUNDING FAST

Welcome to the Future

As the third decade of the 21st century dawns, the Technocratic Union stands on the cutting edge of a future imperiled. As science and technology draw humanity closer than ever before, certain factions within the Masses display gross negligence, undermining the Union’s work and endangering the world for shortsighted gains. Despite global telecommunications, new frontiers in virtually every field of study, and an understanding of the universe only dreamed of by earlier generations, humanity faces threats on all sides.

Can You Save It?

Climate change threatens to destroy life as we know it. Religious fundamentalism breeds terror around the globe. Diseases, once eradicated in the developed world through vaccination, have returned due to antivaxxer movements. Totalitarian, nationalist governments rise as the Masses succumb to fear of the other. The world stands on the brink of destruction, and it is up to the agents and operatives of the Technocratic Union to save it…or be its ultimate destruction.

Technocracy Reloaded peels back the curtain and examines the role of the Technocracy in Mage 20th Anniversary Edition. The various Future Fates presented in Mage 20 are examined and this book introduces a few of its own. This book provides a detailed look at life within the Technocracy, expanded information on the Conventions, a wealth of equipment, Adjustments, and Procedures, a breakdown of the various shadow conspiracies and factions within the Technocratic Union, and tips for running your own Technocracy Chronicle.

NOW ON KICKSTARTER! CHECK IT OUT!

Reward Delivery: Backer T-shirts Available for a Limited Time!
2 months ago – Sat, Apr 18, 2020 at 04:12:03 AM

Hello Arisen,

I don't know about you, but I've sort of lost track of the days, and somehow every day has become casual Friday. Maybe even a little more casual than casual Friday, to be honest. 

Something, something, non-linear time. You know where I usually go with this.

I've honestly experienced about 15 Tuesdays in a row now.

I could use a slight wardrobe change, even if it's just to surprise myself when I pass by a mirror. And, today, I've got a new option!

REWARD DELIVERY: KICKSTARTER T-SHIRT LINK

One of our Stretch Goals during the kickstarter campaign was a special discounted-for-a-limited-time Kickstarter Backer Mummy: The Curse T-shirt.

If you click over to Onyx Path's REDBUBBLE T-shirt Shop you will see the Deviant: The Renegades T-shirt, which will be available at a discounted price for a LIMITED TIME ONLY! You have ONE WEEK to order this shirt if you'd like to put off doing laundry for one more day!

And, just like our favorite renegades, these shirts come in different shapes and sizes, so don't forget to scroll through and check out your options!

One last time: This shirt will be available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY - please act quickly if you're interested!

Click on the link to check it out!

See you in a few weeks with our regular month-end status update. Until then, stay safe and take care of yourselves!

March 2020 Update
3 months ago – Tue, Mar 31, 2020 at 10:25:24 AM

Hello Arisen,

We've hit the last day of March 2020 (finally!), so I wanted to make sure we get our monthly update in under the wire. I hope everyone is keeping safe and doing the best possible under recent circumstances.  The times are certainly challenging, but we can find strength with our community, our family, and especially within our friendships.

If I could experience time in a non-linear fashion, I would get to 2020 last!

According to yesterday's Meeting Notes, The Book of Lasting Death (or Endless Death, I guess, depending on which listing you read) is now in Second Draft phase, which means progress is being made!  If you've found yourself with "extra" free time, and are looking for additional ideas, remember the list of Inspirational Material from the Mummy: The Curse Second Edition Kickstarter preview manuscript:

Movies and Television

Altered Carbon (2018) In the future, people store their memories on disks and transfer their consciousness from body to body, granting them a type of immortality.

Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) Though the film features a mummy as its antagonist, we’re recommending it for the way it shows the characters dealing with aging and the powerlessness they feel as a result of it.

Fringe (2008) Another study in how memory shapes identity, the character of Dr. Walter Bishop underwent several brain surgeries to remove memories he felt made him dangerous. As the series progresses, he regains many of them, and must deal with the fallout.

Memento (2000) is an excellent exploration of memory and loss, and how someone builds (and alters) their narrative with limited and often conflicting information.

The Mummy (1999) represents several elements of Mummy — a race to find a hidden city and claim the relics within, traps laid to protect the tomb, ancient sorcery. Imhotep’s desiccated body repairs itself much like one of the Arisen, and his formidable displays of power could easily be Utterances. Though their aim is to keep him from rising rather than serving him, the Medjai have been protecting Imhotep’s tomb for thousands of years, much like a mummy’s cult.

Books

11/22/63, by Stephen King (2011) explores many of the ripple effects altering a timeline can cause, both on a small scale and a global one.

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North (2014) Though Harry would technically be one of the Reborn, this novel is both a good example of what it’s like to use knowledge from an earlier Descent to nudge history, and how it feels when your best friend in one Descent might turn out to be your eternal nemesis, too. The Chronus Club functions both like a mummy’s cult and a group of Arisen whose Descents overlap.

The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger (2003) gives readers a sense of what it’s like for mummies to experience their Descents in a non-linear fashion, and the effects that can have on those devoted to them.

For sorcerous cults, the works of Robert Howard and Clark Ashton Smith showcase their rituals and eldritch observances.

Games

Assassin’s Creed: Origins (2017) is set in Ptolemaic Egypt, and its stunning visuals can inspire Storytellers running scenes in lost Irem or the first Sothic Turns.

Planescape: Torment (1999) follows an immortal character attempting to piece together memories of his previous lives.

I will continue to post our list of delivered and pending rewards with each monthly update, so that we can track everything that's needed and keep on the same page. Also, feel free to check out Onyx Path's Monday Meeting Notes posts that I mentioned (linked here) which will give you a weekly status report on ALL of the projects Onyx Path has on the go.
