September 2019 Update
20 days ago – Fri, Sep 27, 2019 at 12:26:40 AM

Greetings, Gatecrashers,

We've fallen into the Fall (or, Spring, I guess, depending on your hemisphere!), and it's time for our month end status report.

Again, lots of time was taken up by those Dragon-Blooded exalts, tracking shipments and following up on their deliveries, but that's finally complete, and I can get back and focus on my Lunar friends now! Here's what's going on in the World of Creation...

MONTHLY RELEASES

Now available in PDF from DriveThruRPG: Adversaries of the Righteous: Unrelenting Aton & The Pillars of the Last Bastion (Cult of Aton)

From the bustling streets of Nexus to the savage western seas, Creation is ripe with threats to mortals and Chosen alike. Crooked traders, vile occultists, and even zealous protectors of the Realm can be found in every city, satrapy, and region waiting for unsuspecting targets or standing their ground as they prepare for the inevitable.

In this collection you will meet new foes, encounter old enemies, and learn the inner workings of several different factions and societies dedicated to criminal activity, nefarious plotting, and more.

Swing on by and check out DEVIANT on Kickstarter

You woke up… different. Someone changed you: on a slab, an operating table, an altar. By luck or by fate, you escaped. Hunted by your creators, they hold all the cards, and it seems they might recapture you. Except, what they don’t understand is they’ve stoked the fires of vengeance; what they did wasn’t right. What they don’t know is that now — you’re hunting them.

Deviant: The Renegades presents a game where the victims of experiments band together to bring down the monolithic organizations that twisted and warped them. Now funding Kickstarter from Onyx Path - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/deviant-the-renegades-a-tabletop-roleplaying-game

August 2019 Update
about 2 months ago – Thu, Aug 29, 2019 at 09:14:02 PM

Hey there, Gatecrashers!

It's the end of August, and time for our month end update!

It's James, working to change his shape through diet and exercise. Not as much fun.

A bunch of time taken up by those Dragon-Blooded exalts lately (you know how they are!), but I can get back and focus on my Lunar friends now! Here's what's going on in the World of Creation...

MONTHLY RELEASES

Now available in PDF from DriveThruRPG: Hundred Devils Night Parade: Makarios, the Sigil’s Dreamer!

From the frozen North to the burning South, and all directions in between, there are creatures that stalk Creation. Demons, spirits, monsters and even creatures who live alongside mankind are in every region. In this collection you will find new foes, encounter old enemies, and learn the secrets of these denizens of Exalted 3rd Edition’s wondrous world.

MERCH

Now available from our RedBubble store: The Realm Journals! These journals can be filled with your choice of lined, grid, or blank pages for you to fill with whatever your heart desires.

I mean, I guess you could use a Realm journal to write down your plans for destruction of the Realm itself, but that just seems odd. Or... maybe it's the last place anyone would look and the perfect place to hide your secret plans! Either way, the art is great!

THE REALM FOR SALE - KNOW YOUR ENEMIES

Yes, The Realm is now available for sale for Exalted 3rd Edition. A perfect book for a Lunar to learn more about the empire that must be crushed!!

From the chaos of the Dragon-Blooded Shogunate’s collapse arose the Scarlet Empress, hero-tyrant and founder of the Realm.

In the centuries since her ascendancy, the Scarlet Realm has become Creation’s foremost imperial power. Kingdoms and city-states across Creation look toward the Blessed Isle at the world’s center and bow in submission to the authority of the Scarlet Throne, the might of the Imperial legions, and the doctrine of the Immaculate Order. The Great Houses of the Scarlet Dynasty, Dragon-Blooded descendants of the Empress, scheme against each other and vie for power. Now, the Empress is gone, and the Realmís future will be forged by the deeds of heroes.

The Realm expands on the history, politics, culture, law, and economics of Creation’s greatest and most terrible empire. It details the Realm’s governmental institutions: the Thousand Scales ministries, the Deliberative, the magistracy, and the All-Seeing Eye military, and its state religion, the Immaculate Order.

It also provides an in-depth look at the lands that make up the Realm, both its heart on the Blessed Isle, and its satrapies scattered across the world.

Now available in PDF and print from DriveThruRPG: The Realm for Exalted 3rd Edition

Gen Con 2019 Note
3 months ago – Thu, Jul 11, 2019 at 08:18:59 PM

Hello Gatecrashers,

 I just wanted to throw a quick update out to let you know about Onyx Path and Gen Con 2019. 

I have shapeshifted into my Gen Con James form.
I have shapeshifted into my Gen Con James form.

As you may have read in Onyx Path's recent Monday Meeting Notes blog, they won't have a booth in the Exhibit Hall this year. But that doesn't mean that Onyx Path won't be at the convention, or that you won't be able to pick up copies of your favorite games.

Instead, Onyx Path will be running seminars and game sessions, and leave the Exhibit Hall business to their sales partners - Studio 2 Publishing and Indie Press Revolution (IPR).

The Onyx Path team (Rich, Matt, Eddy, whoever else shows up...) will mostly be participating in the following panels during the convention: 

  • Thursday 3pm – What’s Up With Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich Thomas version)
  • Friday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Community Content? panel
  • Friday 3pm – Freelancing with Onyx Path Publishing? panel
  • Saturday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich-less version)

In addition, there are some programmed game sessions in the Event Guide.

While most of the games are currently marked as sold out this close to the convention, it's always a good idea to double-check if you're really interested. There are sometimes drop outs if people aren't feeling well or are unable to show, and a handful of generic tickets can maybe get you slotted into a vacated chair.

Of course, there will likely be a ton of pick-up and casual games over the Best Four Days in Gaming, so keep your eyes open for anyone wearing a cool T-shirt! I'll be dressed just like my avatar (although it's a few years old now, so imagine with more white in the beard!) so feel free to say hello if you see me!

I'll be back with our regular month end update in 2 weeks!
