Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

It's the end of November, and that means monthly update time!

Of course, there's not much to update quite yet... everything's still in progress, and this is all part of the standard process. That said, I want to make sure my communication with you is constant (monthly or more often!) and consistent (same sections each month, updated with any new info).

 
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 https://geist2e.backerkit.com  

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 https://geist2e.backerkit.com/faq  

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 I will get your e-mail.

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: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/chicago-by-night-for-vampire-the-masquerade-5th-ed

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.
It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.

 
Welcome to Autumn (if you're not in the Southern hemisphere, I guess. Or the Underworld... do they even have seasons there?)

As mentioned on the last day of the Kickstarter campaign, I will be sending out an update near the end of each month, doing my best to keep our communication constant and consistent. 

We've had our Backerkit surveys out for just over a month now, and we've hit some solid numbers - I think we're over 90% completed! Which is great! It means that we're able to start some reward fulfillment (not the book... that'll still be a long ways off...) and are able to keep track of everyone's reward list and pledges.

FIRST REWARD

 
Remember this victory during the campaign? We unlocked a Kickstarter Backer T-shirt, which will be discounted and hosted on the Onyx Path redbubble store for a limited time. Well, that limited time begins today:

Available for a limited time, in multiple styles and sizes!
Available for a limited time, in multiple styles and sizes!


It's sort of a wearable Backer Badge! For ONE WEEK ONLY, Onyx Path has zero mark-up on this item, so you'll be paying only the manufacturing and shipping costs. Available in multiple styles, colors, and sizes here: GEIST T-SHIRT. Order yours now before it fades away...

Again: This will be available to order for ONE WEEK ONLY so don't delay...


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 https://geist2e.backerkit.com

KICKSTARTER CONCIERGE

One more quick note to remind you that I'm currently running Onyx Path's latest Kickstarter campaign - a different game about possibly coming back from the dead - Dystopia Rising: Evolution.


It's a little more zombie than ghost...

Dystopia Rising is a post-apocalyptic roleplaying game that quickly grew into a live-action sensation. Now, Onyx Path is pleased to update the live-action setting with Dystopia Rising: Evolution, a tabletop roleplaying game that presents a fresh and exciting take on the post-apocalypse genre.  

The Dystopia Rising: Evolution Kickstarter campaign is designed to enable us to create a hardcover core rulebook that will introduce the world, as well as setting up room for expansion and further exploration of the setting. We also want to get at least one print run into traditional distribution and available for sale at game and hobby stores.  

Dystopia Rising: Evolution will be powered by Onyx Path’s Storypath system, and includes all the rules you need to play as a survivor in the post-apocalypse, including rules for creating characters for up to 24 different Strains, variations on humanity that survived the Fall. It also has details on the powers of faith and psionics, along with advice on running action-adventure stories, webs of personal intrigue, or procedural investigations. And, finally, dozens of antagonists, including a variety of zombies and raiders to use in your series.

If that sounds like fun, come check out our latest kickstarter at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/dystopia-rising-evolution-tabletop-rpg

And don't forget to check your e-mail for a BackerKit link over the next few days!
