Please Note: Once this Kickstarter is funded at 2pm Eastern US time on July 2nd 2015, we can not accept pledges for the Beast: the Primordial Prestige Edition. Please do not write us to pledge after that time. The PDF and physical book PoD versions will be available on DriveThruRPG.com along with the PDF and physical book PoD versions of the Stretch Goal projects in the months to come. Thanks!
All your life, you've dreamed of monsters. 

They pull you into blackened depths, leap at you from shadows, dive at you from the skies, swarm from cracks in the walls, or break you to pieces as you scream for mercy. Then one night you realize the truth: you are the monster in the dream, and all the other monsters are your family.

In Beast: the Primordial, you take the role of one of the Begotten, descendants of an ancient nightmare creature called the Dark Mother. Beasts view each other -- and the other supernatural creatures of the World of Darkness -- as family, which means that Beast is explicitly designed to be crossover-friendly, both in terms of game mechanics and setting.

Beware, though. Just because the Begotten see the vampires, werewolves, mages, changelings, and mummies as kin, doesn't mean the feeling is mutual.

Beast: the Primordial is the tenth game in the new World of Darkness, and has been written with the nWoD 2nd Edition rules set. It includes complete information on creating Beast characters, rules for playing and running Beast and crossover chronicles, a chapter devoted to Beasts around the world, and a complete adventure written in the Storytelling Adventure System, entitled The Morning After.

But you can see what Beast: The Primordial is all about yourself by checking out the first round of the text here, but please be aware before you read that Beast deals with creatures that feed on such things as the fear they can cause in mortals and such descriptions may be difficult to read about.

Here is a link to the current text for Beast: the Primordial:

And the no longer current, first pass at the text is still here:

This Beast: the Primordial Kickstarter is designed to enable us to create a prestige hardcover edition designed to match the look and feel of our other New World of Darkness core rulebooks such as Vampire: The Requiem, Changeling: The Lost, or Demon: the Descent.  

We want to create an 8.5" x 11" hard cover with a beautifully designed, symbolic cover image printed on a metallic under layer, and featuring an emboss/deboss of the logo. We estimate the book to be more than 320 pages, with a two-color interior and endpapers on high quality paper stock featuring all new artwork.

Cover Concept, Not Final
Cover Concept, Not Final

We're going to publish this as a PDF and as a Print on Demand physical book regardless of how this Kickstarter turns out, but we know that a fair percentage of our community would like to set this newest nWoD game on their shelves with the previous game lines.  

As with our previous successful KSs such as Demon: The Descent, nWoD Dark Eras, and Deluxe V20 Lore of the Clans, we are trying to find ways to give our backers the chance to have a say in the kind of package we'll deliver and to further foster the community of World of Darkness fans around the world. Some of the text was reviewed and commented on by fans on the Beast Blogs, and critical changes were made based on your input. We had a blast talking with the community during the previous KSs and fully hope that every backer of this KS will enjoy commenting here.

We have a great community and want to hear from more of you, so please comment away!

It's pretty easy. Contribute any amount you want, bearing in mind the levels of contribution and their commensurate rewards over there on the right. If we hit our $50K goal, you'll get the reward that goes with your level of contribution. PDFs versions will be made available first in the form of a coupon from our online sales partner, DriveThruRPG.  

In keeping with the Family of Monsters crossover-friendly theme within the book, we are offering a special PDF Reward Tier that include both the Beast: the Primordial PDF and a PDF of the core book of one of our other nWoD game lines (The edition of the other core book will the latest we have at the time, but don't worry, there are quick conversion guides for all of the lines in Beast).

The full listing of the Family of Monsters reward tier choices are:

  • All Night Society: The Beast PDF as well as a PDF of Vampire: the Requiem 2nd Edition.
  • Hunting Party: The Beast PDF as well as a PDF of Werewolf: the Forsaken 2nd Edition.
  • Forbidden Wisdom: The Beast PDF as well as a PDF of Mage: the Awakening (1st or 2nd Edition depending on which is current at the time these rewards are sent).
  • Strange Bedfellows: The Beast PDF as well as a PDF of Promethean: the Created (1st or 2nd Edition depending on which is current at the time these rewards are sent).
  • No More Heroes: The Beast PDF as well as a PDF of Hunter: the Vigil (1st or 2nd Edition depending on which is current at the time these rewards are sent).
  • Shared Nightmares:The Beast PDF as well as a PDF of Changeling: the Lost (1st or 2nd Edition depending on which is current at the time these rewards are sent).

  • Ancient Nightmares:The Beast PDF as well as a PDF of Mummy: the Curse.
  • All Of Us Against The Stranger: The Beast PDF as well as a PDF of Demon: the Descent.
We will ask you which of the other core game books you want on the Backer Survey that we'll send out after the KS is over.

The Beast: the Primordial Prestige Edition will take multiple months from the closing date to print and ship. We will contact contributors in the upper tiers with details on their rewards.

You can Add-on the PDFs listed below to any Reward Tier pledge that already includes a PDF by clicking on your Reward Tier to the right, and then when you get to the pledge page that confirms your pledge amount, manually changing the amount of your pledge from the base Reward amount to that Reward amount plus the amount of each Add-on that you want as listed below :

The PDF and electronic versions of the anthology will be sent to every backer who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a PDF of Beast: The Primordial.

This is our sixteenth Kickstarter, and we have learned enough (sometimes painfully) to make some tweaks to our goals, reward tiers, and prizes. One of those things is that we tend to get the same questions asked during each Kickstarter, but have a limit on the amount of text we can put on this KS page, so we're hosting a FAQ here:  

http://theonyxpath.com/about/faq/kickstarter/

Risks and challenges

Risk: This book isn't created at all even though the goal is reached.

Solution: We have successfully shipped nine Kickstarter projects and several more are headed to completion as you read this. All those books have taught us how the various pieces of the process works, sometimes painfully, and we have increased our ability to judge the various stages of delivery better with each KS. The book is in the middle of creating the layout files, which means 90% of the art and text is completely finished.

Risk: Shipping costs soak up pledges that were meant to enable the creation of the Beast: the Primordial Prestige Edition.

Solution: Kickstarter shipping costs have continued to rise dramatically this last year, but we are aware of that and were able to find ways to work with shippers to bring down those costs - unfortunately, only to some extent as we have also needed to up the shipping charges- both methods allowing us to be sure that shipping doesn't eat up the pledge money supposed to go to printing. For the first time, because of Kickstarter adding the option to their tools, we are able to be more specific as to shipping costs based on your country. These costs will be added to your pledge automatically by KS if you are outside the US. As always, local or VAT style taxes will need to be paid by the backer when appropriate and are not included in these costs.

Risk: The books will take a long time to produce and anger the backers.

Solution: We've learned many, many lessons with our previous Kickstarters and we're becoming much better at estimating the various pitfalls that will delay a KS project. We were able to deliver the PDFs for our last several KS projects several months before the estimate, and are ahead of the game for the current physical book at press as well. That being said, backers need to be aware that they are enabling a process, and not a pre-order opportunity, and things do sometimes run slower than we want or anticipate with that process. We've found that an open flow of communication between us and the backer community is vital so once the project funds we will deliver Updates on progress once a month (or more, as needed) via Kickstarter as well as in our regular, weekly, Monday Meeting Notes blog at www.theonyxpath.com

Risk: The extra Stretch Goals, specifically, will add time to the creation of the Prestige Edition delivery.

Solution: With this Kickstarted project, we intend to only have Stretch Goals that modify the book physically, not for more chapters or text, or Stretch Goals that are not a part of the book itself, but additional products.
