Gen Con 2019 Note

Posted by James Bell (Collaborator)

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

 Just wanted to throw a quick update out to let you know about Onyx Path and Gen Con 2019. 

It's Gen Con James, now with 20 character sheets
It's Gen Con James, now with 20 character sheets

As you may have read in Onyx Path's recent Monday Meeting Notes blog, they won't have a booth in the Exhibit Hall this year. But that doesn't mean that Onyx Path won't be at the convention, or that you won't be able to pick up copies of your favorite games.

Instead, Onyx Path will be running seminars and game sessions, and leave the Exhibit Hall business to their sales partners - Studio 2 Publishing and Indie Press Revolution (IPR).

The Onyx Path team (Rich, Matt, Eddy, whoever else shows up...) will mostly be participating in the following panels during the convention: 

  • Thursday 3pm – What’s Up With Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich Thomas version)
  • Friday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Community Content? panel
  • Friday 3pm – Freelancing with Onyx Path Publishing? panel
  • Saturday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich-less version)

In addition, there are some programmed game sessions in the Event Guide.

While most of the games are currently marked as sold out this close to the convention, it's always a good idea to double-check if you're really interested. There are sometimes drop outs if people aren't feeling well or are unable to show, and a handful of generic tickets can maybe get you slotted into a vacated chair.

Of course, there will likely be a ton of pick-up and casual games over the Best Four Days in Gaming, so keep your eyes open for anyone wearing a cool T-shirt! I'll be dressed just like my avatar (although it's a few years old now, so imagine with more white in the beard!) so feel free to say hello if you see me!

I'll be back with our regular month end update in 2 weeks!

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

It's been about 6 weeks since Onyx Path released the Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition Backer PDF. I hope you've had a chance to read it, and I'd love to hear if anyone's had a chance to play yet...

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

I don't have anything as exciting as the Backer PDF to announce in this update, but wanted to make sure everyone is up to date on the progress being made on each project. I also wanted to let you know where the Onyx Path team is currently hanging out:

The Onyx Path team are gathering for the UK Game Expo! Eddy Webb, Matt McElroy, and Rich Thomas have traveled across the sea to join Matthew Dawkins, Steffie de Vaan, John Burke, Chris Allen, and Klara Herbol at the UK Games Expo this weeked, May 31st - June 2nd. If you're in the area, drop by and say hi! 

Project Status  

The latest status on Geist-related projects, taken from the latest Onyx Path Monday Notes blog:   

First Draft:
- Geist Jumpstart & Ready-Made Characters (One Foot in the Grave)
- Geist2e Fiction Anthology  

Manuscript Approval: 
- Memento Mori: the GtSE 2e Companion  

Errata and Correction Process:
 - Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2E Backer PDF

Some progress there, with Memento Mori sliding into the Manuscript Approval position on the progress chart. Also, the awesome Vera Vartanian is developing One Foot in the Grave, and confirmed that it will not only include the Jumpstart scenario (as added via Stretch Goal during our campaign), but will also include the Ready-Made Characters for out-of-the-box play.

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

Our last update was the exciting one, with the Backer PDF being sent out! It's received a really positive and warm reception! Now we're back to our regularly scheduled month end summary, just to see what we've got coming up (and how far we've come...)

It's James, your point person for this kickstarter project.

Project Status  

The latest status on Geist-related projects, taken from the latest Onyx Path Monday Notes blog:   

 Outline Stage/Writer Assignments:
- Geist Ready-Made Characters  

First Draft:
- Geist Jumpstart (One Foot in the Grave)
- Geist2e Fiction Anthology  

 Development: 
- Memento Mori: the GtSE 2e Companion  

 Errata Collection:
 - Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2E Backer PDF

So, situation normal, all things waiting to continue through the system. We do have a name on the Jumpstart now - One Foot in the Grave! I will also check in with the team, because there's a chance - a chance - that the Ready-Made Characters could end up being incorporated (ha, get it?) into a complete package with the Jumpstart. I'll let you know if that's the case in next month's summary.

Don't forget to share any errata you find in the Backer PDF using this special form!

A Changeling, A Sin-Eater, a Mummy, and a Hunter walk into a bar...

We may be waiting for a few Geist projects to work through the creative system, but that doesn't mean there aren't new adventures and stories to be told with our Sin-Eaters! I've mentioned the Contagion Chronicle crossover kickstarter before, but we're in the final 24 hours of the campaign, so wanted to highlight it one final time.

And, I'll start by letting others do the talking. The Botch Pit posted a quick clip reviewing the campaign and the manuscript, which has been shared in it's entirety and available to backers of the project (similar to what we did during the Geist camapign).


The world is ill. You have everything to lose through its sickness. Loss. Change. Chaos. Your own blood will rebel against you. Your own herd. Your own loved ones. Do not believe that just because you’ve had a hundred years on this Earth you’ll be exempt. Just because you were ignorant of it until now, does not make you immune. Your waking to the reality of this world — of the great machine in its heart, and the sickness in its veins — is just the first step. You must find others like you and me and make them swear to drive back this Contagion.

This world doesn’t have long left. You may be a monster, but perhaps with other monsters, you can drive back the destruction of everything.

The Contagion Chronicle includes:

• The first Chronicles of Darkness book to provide guidance on playing creatures of all kinds in a shared story.

• Systems and powers enabling teams of vampires, werewolves, mages, Prometheans, changelings, Sin-Eaters, hunters, mummies, Beasts, demons, and Deviants all in the same group, encouraging you to explore all permutations of crossover.

• A new mythos — the terrifying Contagion — acting as a catalyst for unifying disparate monsters into allied groups known as the Sworn and the False.

• Over ten settings from diverse locations all around the globe, each wracked with its own Contagion, and all waiting to be explored by the Sworn and the False.

Final 24 Hours! Last Call to Join In!

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

Great and exciting news today! This isn't just a regular almost month-end update (that'll come next week, just to keep me on track!), this is a notice that one of our big rewards is being sent out - the backer PDF for Geist: The Sin-Eaters Second Edition!


It's on the way!

 BACKER PDF VERSION 

This is the first versions of Geist: The Sin-Eaters Second Edition to be released. We've sent you these initial Backer PDFs for three reasons:

1) To thank you for your support! You helped keep this game alive (so to speak!) and bring this into the world, and you deserve to see it first!  

2) So you can start playing a Sin-Eater! These are the actual rules - this is the latest rulebook for the Chronicles of Darkness line! It's real, and it's time to fight (or explore) the Underworld!  

3) To make the final version the best it can be! 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.

With that in mind, you get to be the first backers to test the new errata and correction process! 

Onyx Path has launched a special Geist: The Sin-Eaters Second Edition Errata Form, which you can access here:

https://forms.gle/fFHYsqmLXdiKXoc39

Click to go to the Geist Second Edition Errata Form
Click to go to the Geist Second Edition Errata Form

Generally, we try to keep errata collection open for the next 2 weeks, although they may be accessible a little longer due to the new nature of this method. Still, please report what you can as soon as possible to make sure we're getting everything covered.

We won't be collecting errata from other spots, just this specific form. Please note these threads will be for errata only - typos, incorrect math, page elements that overlap incorrectly, etc. It won't be for book discussion - you can do that in a different thread, or on the Kickstarter comments page.

Also, they already know about the Page XX notations - those are usually corrected after any changes are made and the books are being finalized. 

After any needed corrections are made (based on your feedback!), we will prepare an updated final PDF version of the book and you will receive a notice that you can re-download your file with the latest version. This will happen closer to when the final prestige hardcover books are getting ready to ship.

You've already made the game a reality with your Kickstarter support. Now you can make it even better by helping us crowdsource any minor errors and corrections.

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

Next week, I'll be back with our regular month-end status update, where I'll post our list of delivered and pending rewards with each update, so that we can track everything that's needed and keep on the same page. Also, feel free to check out Onyx Path's Monday Meeting Notes posts (linked here) which will give you a weekly status report on ALL of the projects Onyx Path has on the go (you may see spoilers for my monthly updates, or see what other kickstarter campaigns are currently running).
