June 2018 Update

Posted by James Bell (Collaborator)

Hello Cavalier Community,

Welcome to June! Obviously, the biggest update since last month is the fact that the first Backer PDF version of Cavaliers of Mars has gone out to Kickstarter Backers. We're compiling your errata and updates in preparation for finalizing the file for print. That'll still take some time, but this is a huge first step.

So, no big update this month. Instead:

Wish You Were Here... Again!

The second of our Digital Postcard rewards has gone out! Digital Postcard - Vance should now be available in your BackerKit Digital Downloads collection, if it was included in your list of rewards for this campaign.  

You should be receiving an e-mail with the BackerKit link, or the easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected.

Your Digital Download collection is also where you'd find the redemption code for the Cavaliers of Mars rulebook PDF. Since we are using our partners at DriveThruRPG as the host for this, you will need to set up a DriveThru account if you don't have one already. If you encounter any problems with downloading your rewards, please contact DTRPG's customer service to resolve the matter, they've always been top-rated for customer service.

Backer PDF Corrections and Clarifications

The design and development teams have done their best to proofread and correct any errors and typos - but some always sneak through. If you catch any typos, incorrect math, visual glitches, and the like, we want to hear about them and correct them before we send the book off to print.

You can report any such issues on the Onyx Path forums here:

Or leave a comment on UPDATE #35 <LINK>.. We won't be collecting errata from other spots, just that specific thread on the OP forum or the comments from Kickstarter update #35.


Just a momentary break to remind you that I'm currently running Onyx Path's latest Kickstarter campaign - for the family-friendly card game, Fetch Quest.

Fetch Quest is a cooperative deck-building game. Each player represents a pioneer on a dangerous quest. The pioneers work together to overcome dangerous challenges and resolve missions. Once the missions are resolved, the quest is finished and the players win the game. We're running this Kickstarter to get additional new art for the cards and get the project printed in a form we can put into stores.

You can check out the Kickstarter here:

And if you want to learn more about the game, creator Eddy Webb goes through all the rules here:

The game is already funded, and now we want to dig into building our "booster pack" of cards, including adding cat pioneers from the Monarchies of Mau and opening the game up to allow Community Content and home-brewed expansion.

 Onward to Mars
