One of our Stretch Goals during the kickstarter campaign was a special discounted-for-a-limited-time Kickstarter Backer Dystopia Rising: Evolution T-shirt.

If you click over to Onyx Path's REDBUBBLE T-shirt Shop you will see the Dystopia Rising: Evolution T-shirt, which will be available at a discounted price for a LIMITED TIME ONLY! You have ONE WEEK to order this shirt if you'd like to face the apocalypse in style! 

Note: Because this shirt contains content (guns and guts), it will be hidden behind Redbubble's mature content filter. You can reveal the shirt with a click, but make sure you review your selection before you process payment to ensure you've got the correct images, style, color, and size. (Also note: you can change the style, color, and size to make sure it works for you! Changing the style and size may change the cost, so be aware. You can explore options by clicking the Dystopia Rising: Evolution tag at the bottom of the page.) 

One last time: This shirt will be available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY - please act quickly if you're interested!

And, just a reminder to confirm your rewards in your BackerKit survey, if you haven't done so already.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or contact the team via the Contact Creator link on the kickstarter page and Rich will forward it to me.

Speaking of which (and answering why James is dressed as a vampire...)

Chicago lies at the center of the web that is the American heartland. Tendrils of power, wealth, and reward stretch outward, ensnaring the selfish, greedy, and unwary.  

Yet, Chicago attracts its predators, too.  

There are creatures that would have the city for their own, spinning their own webs of malice and intrigue. But among the city’s towering skyscrapers and wind-swept streets, who is the spider and who is the fly?

Chicago By Night, an updated edition of White Wolf’s bestselling city book, will be Onyx Path Publishing’s first supplement for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition.

In this hardcover supplement, you will find descriptions of most of the Kindred inhabitants of Chicago, complete with 5th Edition write ups; the secret history of Chicago with detailed maps and geographical details; relationship details and factions; and dozens of encounters organized by theme, which provide Storytellers a means to make the setting come alive for the players.  

If you're interested in checking out the shadowy streets of Chicago, head on over and join us: Here's the link:

Keep on survivin'!

- James
