Please Note: Once this Kickstarter is funded on Nov 6th, we can not accept pledges for the Deluxe V20 Dark Ages. The PDF and physical book PoD versions will be available on DriveThruRPG.com. Thanks!

The year is 1242. The Mongol army crushed Baghdad and then Russia under its heel, and then moved on to devastate Poland and Hungary. The Holy Roman Empire stood to war with the Papacy. The second Lombard League wielded the word of the Pope and fought off Frederick II.

The vampire War of Princes rages. Patricide looms. Young powers look up the ladder to the next rungs, and see stagnation and hypocrisy. They see targets. When they look down, they see humanity. They see a power that could change everything. They see mortals organizing into universities and empires.

In the mortal world of 1242, power shifted at the rate an army marched. For the undead, power shifts faster than a fire overtakes a haven. To the Damned, power flows as fast as blood from an ancient heart.

Vampire 20th Anniversary: The Dark Ages is a storytelling game of horrific power.

What You'll Find Inside

• Thirteen vampire clans, and nineteen bloodlines.

• All three castes of the dying Salubri: the Warriors, the Watchers, and the Healers.

• Bloodlines from every edition of Vampire, and from all over the known world.

• A new approach to Tzimisce Koldunic Sorcery.

• An "apocrypha of the clans" featuring fiction, lore, Roads, and alternative castes within the clans of Caine.

• A complete game in one book, which does not require Vampire 20th Anniversary Edition.

• New full color original art by Mark Kelly, Kieran Yanner, Brian Syme, Andrew Trabbold, and other fantastic artists, as well as a handful of classic B&W pieces carefully chosen from the earlier editions.


The Dark Ages Experience

A Nostalgic Experience: Most of you are coming to this book with years of experience with Vampire. Every single member of our team shares that. We're digging deep to find the things that we love about Vampire, and the things you've loved about Vampire, and we're giving a new set of eyes on them.

An Authentic Experience: The Dark Medieval World is all about style and authentic experiences. Note that this does not inherently mean historically accurate experiences. V20 Dark Ages takes place in 1242, but stylistically, we pick and choose ideas, both fictional and factual, that build an evocative experience. 

A New Experience: The Dark Medieval World is a large, frightening place. Here, we want to offer some new experiences and characters to help fill that world. In many cases, the material will be deeply reminiscent of past iterations of Vampire, but you're not going to be reading the same content over again. We'll tell these stories with new voices and from different angles. We'll be providing new options and new biases.

And once you've read through the text, please feel free to comment here and let us know what you think of the book. Maybe your ideas will be the basis of a new Stretch Goal that adds new products as rewards. 

 This Deluxe V20 Dark Ages Kickstarter is designed to enable us to create a prestige hardcover edition that has the outside appearance of a medieval tome bound in rare leathers with a fully ridged spine, and stamped with black and silver foil. A full-color, 400+ page interior, silk bookmark and stunning color artwork are all part of this Deluxe package.

Deluxe Cover Treatment Visual Target, not actual book and some aspects may change

As with our previous KSs for Deluxe versions of  V20 Children of the RevolutionHunters Hunted II, V20 Anarchs Unbound, and others, we are posting this in order 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 vampire fans around the world. The text of V20 Dark Ages was rigorously commented on by our community and subsequently amended by David Hill during the Open Development Process on the V20 Blogs. 

We had a blast talking with the community during our previous KSs and fully hope that every backer will enjoy commenting both here and on the Onyx Path Forumshttp://forum.theonyxpath.com/ , the Onyx Path V20 Dark Ages Blogs:  http://theonyxpath.com/category/projects/darkages/, or our Onyx Path Facebook page.

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 $40K goal, you'll get the reward that goes with your level of contribution. PDFs and Print on Demand versions will be made available first in the form of a coupon from our online sales partner, DriveThruRPG

Deluxe V20 Dark Ages will take multiple months from the closing date to print and ship. PDF Rewards and Add-ons will not take as long as the Deluxe, but will come after the Surveys are returned at least two months after this KS closes. We will contact contributors in the upper tiers with details on their rewards.

ADD-ONS

You can Add-on the PDFs listed below to any Reward Tier pledge that already includes a V20 Dark Ages 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:

  • + $10 for the classic Grail Trilogy, Book of Nod, and Erciyes Fragments PDFs.
  • + $20 for the classic Vampire: The Dark Ages and Dark Ages: Vampire core rulebooks PDFs.
  • + $25 for the V20 Dark Ages PDF.
  • + $30 for the four classic Libellus Sanguinis and Clanbook: Baali, Clanbook: Cappadocian, and Clanbook: Salubri PDFs.
A note on the classic PDFs: These are the same PDFs as are available at DriveThruRPG and Fiction, and were created as best they could be depending on the state of the files. So quality may vary from title to title.

You can also add on individual copies of the Deluxe V20 Dark Ages to any pledge that already is shipping a physical book by manually adding the appropriate amount on the pledge page:

  • + $90 for a Deluxe V20 Dark Ages (US)
  • + $115 for a Deluxe V20 Dark Ages (non-US)

You can add on the V20 Dark Ages Storyteller's Screen to any reward tier that offers a physical book:

  • + $15 for the V20 Dark Ages Storyteller's Screen, a sturdy three-panel screen featuring the beautiful collage of V20 Dark Ages art on the outer side, and on the inside there's a selection of charts and other info to make the Storyteller's job a little bit easier.

If we have contributions beyond our target number, we've planned  several added rewards for contributors. And to make the process even more fun, we're going to tell you the story of a hunt across the map below. As each Stretch Goal is achieved, David Hill and his talented writers will also provide part of the ongoing story of a band of vampires searching for hidden clues from city to city:

So, because V20 Dark Ages is such a big book already, we're going to try and avoid adding more to its text, but instead we'll start right away with building a V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF containing material David wanted to expand on from the book:

ACHIEVED! If we pass $50,000 of contributionswe will create a PDF containing additional material about Koldunic Sorcery that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF. Further Stretch Goals will allow us to create more PDFs that we will combine into a single V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $65,000 of contributions, we will gild the pages of the Deluxe V20 Dark Ages with a classic silver edging.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $75,000 of contributions, we will create a PDF containing additional material about mass combat/medieval warfare that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF. Further Stretch Goals will allow us to create more PDFs that we will combine into a single V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $90,000 of contributions, we will add two more silk bookmarks to the Deluxe V20 Dark Ages book. For a book this size, those extra bookmarks will really come in handy.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $100,000 of contributions, we will create a PDF containing additional material about Assamite Sorcery that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF. Further Stretch Goals will allow us to create more PDFs that we will combine into a single V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $120,000 of contributions, we will create a V20 Dark Ages Quickstart PDF designed to get players up and running through the darkened alleyways and tapestry draped corridors of V20 Dark Ages easily and quickly. This will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $130,000 of contributions, we will create a PDF containing additional material about Cainite Knightly Orders that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF. Further Stretch Goals will allow us to create more PDFs that we will combine into a single V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $140,000 of contributions, once the Deluxe V20 Dark Ages KS is over, we're going to offer an exclusive V20 DA KS shirt on the store for sale at the deepest discount they'll let us do it for a limited time after which we'll change the design- and tell you folks about it first so you can order one if you want. We estimate that you'll be getting about a $10 discount.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $150,000 of contributions, we will create a PDF containing additional material about Settite Sorcery that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF. Further Stretch Goals will allow us to create more PDFs that we will combine into a single V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $160,000 of contributions, we will create a V20 Dark Ages short story PDF that will be combined with further short story Stretch Goals to create a V20 Dark Ages Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a V20 DA PDF. This first story will feature Clan Gangrel and will be written by Filamena Young.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $170,000 of contributions, we will create a Liber Mortuorum containing additional Necromancy secrets and rituals to be added to the V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF. 

ACHIEVED! If we pass $180,000 of contributions, we will create a V20 Dark Ages short story PDF that will be combined with further short story Stretch Goals to create a V20 Dark Ages Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a V20 DA PDF. This second story will feature Clan Ravnos and will be written by Danielle Lauzon.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $190,000 of contributions, we will create a treatise on Abyss Mysticism to be added to the V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $200,000 of contributions, we will create a V20 Dark Ages short story PDF that will be combined with further short story Stretch Goals to create a V20 Dark Ages Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a V20 DA PDF. This third story will feature the Cappadocians and will be written by J Dymphna Coy.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $210,000 of contributions, we will create a guide to building fiefdoms, with a sample fiefdom, to be added to the V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $220,000 of contributions, we will create a V20 Dark Ages short story PDF that will be combined with further short story Stretch Goals to create a V20 Dark Ages Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a V20 DA PDF. This fourth story will feature the Tzimisce and will be written by Renee Knipe.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $230,000 of contributions, we will create a section on Unholy Things, to be added to the V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $240,000 of contributions, we will create two V20 Dark Ages short story PDFs to be added to the V20 Dark Ages Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a V20 DA PDF. These fifth and sixth stories will feature the Malkavians and Salubri and will be written by David Hill and Neall Raemonn Price, respectively. 

ACHIEVED! If we pass $250,000 of contributions, we will celebrate by giving every backer (who pledged for a Reward Tier containing a physical copy of the Deluxe V20 Dark Ages) a link for a discounted V20 DA Tome of Secrets PoD in addition to each PDF. This discount will reduce the price of the physical Print on Demand book of V20 DA Tome of Secrets to as close to "at cost" as we can make it, and the backer will have to pay the normal DTRPG shipping. But wait, there's more: we will also give the creative team a +15% bonus to their current freelance amount.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $260,000 of contributions, we will create two V20 Dark Ages short story PDFs to be added to the V20 Dark Ages Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a V20 DA PDF. These seventh and eighth stories will feature the Tremere and Lasombra and will be written by Geoffrey McVey and Anna Kreider, respectively.

ACHIEVED! If we pass $270,000 of contributions, we will create a section on Holy Things: exploring and expanding True Faith, including holy miracles, biblical necromancy, vampire hunters, and faithful orders of Cainites. All to be added to the V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF.

If we pass $280,000 of contributions, we will create two V20 Dark Ages short story PDFs to be added to the V20 Dark Ages Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a V20 DA PDF. These ninth and tenth stories will feature the Nosferatu and Assamites and will be written by Filamena Young and Danielle Harper, respectively.

If we pass $290,000 of contributions, we will create a guide to witchcraft for the mortals who wield dark rituals and consort with devils which will be added to the V20 DA Tome of Secrets PDF that will be given to all backers who pledge for a Reward Tier that contains the V20 DA PDF.

If we pass $300,000 of contributions, we will finish up the V20 Dark Ages Fiction Anthology PDF that will be sent to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier that includes a V20 DA PDF. These four stories will feature the Ventrue by Myranda Sarro (one of the original Dark Ages writers), Brujah by Renee Ritchie, Setites by Anna Kreider, and Toreador by Anna Loy.

This is our twelfth Kickstarter, and we have learned enough (sometimes painfully) to make some tweaks to our goals, reward tiers, and prizes.

 

Estimated Delivery Dates: 

Most importantly, the "Estimated Delivery" dates have been extended much further out than we hope to be delivering. Experience has taught that it is better to extend far past our expectations.

We've Included PoDs:

We are including the Print on Demand version of V20 Dark Ages in the form of a link to DriveThruRPG that enables you to purchase the PoD version (your choice of either Standard or Premium color) for as close to cost as we can give it to you. Because the PoD printer adjusts their pricing for PoDs as they need to, we can't provide a solid $$ amount of what you'll need to pay, but it will be less than a non-backer ordering one. This inclusion is because many backers want a physical version while their Deluxe versions are being traditionally printed.

Shipping Changes: 

We will be using a shipping fulfillment service that performed excellently with our latest Kickstarter ship-out for Demon: The Descent. They have multiple well-rated Kickstarter ship-outs under their belt, other positive reviews online, and most importantly for many of our backers: they provide emailed tracking numbers. 

Retailer Tiers:

We are continuing to include two Retailer Reward Tiers, one US and one non-US, because we want to be able to support all the great Retailers out there who have supported White Wolf and now Onyx Path over the years. We have a special reward price just for Retailers (someone who owns a store that would sell Deluxe V20 Dark Ages) and anyone thinking of pledging to those Retailer Reward Tiers needs to contact me: richt@theonyxpath.com to confirm that you are operating or representing a store before pledging, please. Any pledges to those Retailer Reward Tiers which do not have confirmations of status will not be honored when sending out Rewards.

Shipping Charges:

We also have been forced by the multiple overt shipping charge increases that have occurred this last year to include that cost in the Reward Tier pledge amounts. We continue to have US and non-US reward tiers so that the specific shipping costs for physical rewards can be built into the pledges, as there was just too much confusion when we tried to leave it to folks to manually add shipping. We do not, however, try to add in or calculate each country's VAT. That amount, if any, will be an extra charge between you and your customs officials.

Risks and challenges

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

Solution: We have successfully shipped seven Kickstarter projects and one more Deluxe project is at the printer 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 creators of Deluxe V20 Dark Ages have over a century of combined experience in the writing, art direction, developing and layout of beautiful tabletop RPG books. 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 Deluxe V20 Dark Ages.

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.

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
