Latest Updates from Our Project:

August 2020 Update
21 days ago – Mon, Aug 31, 2020 at 12:56:54 AM

Hello Arisen,

As we approach the final day of August, it's time for our regular month end update. Near the end of each month, I will be sending out an update, with status notes on our main project as well as the Stretch Goal project we added. As noted in previous updates, these projects take a long time to put together. You've seen the manuscript preview PDF, but there are still many moving pieces and puzzles to solve in turning this into an awesome book. These month-end updates ensure that communication is constant and consistent, and that we're all on the same page with regards to where we stand.

Just a reminder that I'll send these out each month, for those who get anxious to know what's going on around the 26th...

No major changes this past month, just ongoing progress in getting these books to their final stages.

COMING SOON TO KICKSTARTER

As a Hero, a Scion becomes a figure of myth and story, an exemplar of some virtue of their chosen society or the culture they’re born into. Even before their Visitation, the children of the Gods are a breed apart. But some want more than this lesser form of immortality, forever in the shadow of their parents. The golden ichor within the Scion’s heart sears and cooks them, ever burning away any human frailties of the Scion and driving them toward more audacious Deeds. They seek to become truly transformational figures, leaving The World forever different in their wake. At the fifth dot of Legend, it all reaches a tipping point, where the Scion is formed more of divine ichor than mortal flesh —more immortal than mortal, a true Demigod. They have declared to The World that they will not be pawns of Fate, but players in their own right. They will succeed in becoming a God, or they will die with their failure.

Everything up to this point was your prologue. Now it’s time to live your myth.

Scion: Demigod continues the path set down by Scion: Origin and Scion: Hero, expanding Scion Second Edition’s power level and charting the next level of power tiers for the Scions of the Gods. Players will take their characters through a tightly designed yet flexible story arc that ends in apotheosis or death – either way, the character will no longer be mortal after this book. Your characters don’t have to follow every Milestone with their Deeds — but they cannot run from their destiny once they’ve chosen to embrace it.

Coming Soon!

July 2020 Update
about 2 months ago – Tue, Jul 28, 2020 at 11:11:56 PM

Hello Arisen,

This is where I'd put a joke about time losing all linear meaning, as days drag on but the past month rushed by, and how that relates to our favorite Mummy game. But it just seems a little on the nose. I can't believe it's already been a month since our last update, and yet it seems like it's been forever! Let's get right to it!

Arise! Arise! Arouse! A rose!

NOW ON KICKSTARTER

Tell spooky stories and terrifying tales!

Onyx Path's latest game of cinema-inspired fun is They Came from Beyond the Grave! If you're a fan of Roger Corman's creature features, Hammer horror films, or the Amicus movies, this game is for you.

Set in two time periods - the 1970s, when these movies were made, and the 19th century, when many were set - you may just find yourself running or participating in a tale of suspense set across two different eras, both of which contain a mix of hammy acting, technicolor blood, wobbling sets, and all the screams an audience could want.

Indulge in the cigarette smoke, despairing mood, and wide collars of the 1970s. Enjoy the rock and drugs entering the mainstream. What was counterculture is now simply culture. Maybe you favor the disco, or perhaps the punk scene is more your thing. Grow a mustache. Grow a whole beard! It’s no longer rebellious to wear hair or sideburns so long or skirts so short: it’s expected. Hitchhiking isn’t a death sentence yet. Or not quite. Everyone owns a car, and international travel has never felt so easy.

Prepare to trudge through the London fog, creep around unlit alleys, and get lost on misty moors as your deerstalker and long coat gets saturated from the rain apparently incessant throughout the 19th century depicted in the cinema. Prepare to catch a ride in a carriage and ask the driver why he’s going so fast through this part of the woods. Expect to knock on the door to an imposing castle, only to see the butler, far too pale of face, ask whether you’re here to see “the mistress.” The 19th century beckons you to play within its Victorian gothic mood. Start the game here or start it in the 1970s — whichever you prefer, They Came from Beyond the Grave! has monsters, stories, and encounters for whatever tale you wish to tell.

NOW ON KICKSTARTER!

June 2020 Update
3 months 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
4 months 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:

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.

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!

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.
