Gen Con 2019 Note
4 days 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!

May 2019 Update
about 2 months ago – Wed, May 29, 2019 at 08:37:01 PM

Hello Gatecrashers,

It's the final week of May, and that means it's time for our month end status update!

It's James, your point person for this campaign.
It's James, your point person for this campaign.

As a reminder, many of these updates will show only incremental progress, but it's important to me that I keep you updated and we're all on the same page as we continue on our journey.   

The format for these will likely remain pretty consistent as we move forward. I'll start big and broad - checking in on all Exalted projects on the go - and then work down to latest releases and then reward tracking for the Lunars: Fangs at the Gate kickstarter. And for the first while, I'll probably put a BackerKit reminder in there as well.

So, on with the show...

Now available in PDF from DriveThruRPG: Hundred Devils Night Parade: Haloed Husk

Sometimes, when it rains in a Wyld-touched area in the Northern Threshold while the sun shines, chaos taints the clouds, turning a normal sun shower into a Wyld one. The altered rain burns where it lands, not with flame but with searing heat. The storm scorches crops and severely burns anyone caught in the deluge. Even after the skies clear, a secondary threat lurks in puddles of pooled light. 

When a person or animal drinks of the liquid sunlight, their core catches ablaze. Light coruscates from every orifice as their body sizzles and steams. The false sunlight boils away their minds and personalities, until all that remains is the haloed husk — a being of pure radiance and raw instinct wrapped in its still-living flesh. Some people nickname these creatures “sun dogs,” as their most common forms in human settlements are those of beloved pets turned monstrous.

Now available in PDF from DriveThruRPG: The Realm

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 Realm’s 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.

This is an ADVANCE PDF release. If you see any errata or issues with the product, please report them using THIS FORM - a corrected version will eventually be released and you'll be notified when your library is updated.

Now available in PDF from DriveThruRPG: Hundred Devils Night Parade part 24: White Robes

An echo of professional mourners such as Sijan’s famed sorrowers, white robes are empty garments radiating grief, endlessly wandering in a funeral procession to nowhere. The vast burden living mourners carry creates powerful emotional imprints from which white robes spawn. These sublime, hollow robes are inscribed with beautiful, ever-changing symbols in gray and bronze; those who can decipher the writings learn secrets from the Underworld’s forgotten reaches. Though pale and ethereal, white robes are plasmic creations of emotion and Underworld Essence, rather than ghosts.
