(Almost) August 2018 Update

Posted by James Bell (Collaborator)

Hello Cavalier Community,

Another digital reward is getting sent out today: the digital postcard for Zodiac, one of the six cities we voted for during the Kickstarter Campaign. Check your e-mail or follow instructions below to claim your digital postcard.

Onyx Path's Monday latest Meeting Notes shows the Cavaliers of Mars core book and Cavaliers of Mars Game Master Screen both marked "At Press," which is the process of submitting the project to the printer, reviewing sample "proof" copies to ensure everything is printing correctly, making any needed corrections, approving any new "proof" copies after changes have been made, and eventually scheduling the print run. So, still several steps to go... but we're getting closer!

Our other rewards on the schedule...

First Draft (The first phase of a project that is about the work being done by writers, not dev prep)
City of the Towered Tombs (Cavaliers of Mars)
Witch-Queen of the Shadowed Citadel (Cavaliers of Mars)


The third of our Digital Postcard rewards has gone out! Digital Postcard - Zodiac 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.

Kickstarter Concierge

Just a momentary break to remind you that I'm currently running Onyx Path's latest Kickstarter campaign - for the second edition of a game about second chances - Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition.

THERE'S LESS THAN ONE WEEK LEFT for the Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition Kickstarter and we’ve funded the project and achieved ten Stretch Goals so far! Thanks to all of our backers out there spreading the word! We are in good shape to be able to make a great looking hardcover edition, and get that into stores, even while we’re giving backers first look at the complete text and other fun benefits:

Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition includes all the rules you need to play as one of the Bound: Five Burdens reflecting the cause that pulled you back from the grave, five krewe Archetypes for building your own mystery religion, and the Haunts, Keys, and Ceremonies that provide the Bound with their macabre powers.

It also includes the Chronicle of the Dead, featuring the Sin-Eaters’ struggle against the all-consuming Underworld and a variety of terrifying threats. In addition, for the first time in the Chronicles of Darkness line, ghosts are presented as playable characters.  

Like I said, the game is already funded, and now we're working at unlocking Stretch Goals - including additional rules and setting material in a Companion book, Memento Mori. If you haven't already, come by and check us out and hopefully join in on the fun!
