REWARD: Digital Dice

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

It's Geist dice day! (Try saying that three times fast!)

If you remember back to our kickstarter, one of the Stretch Goals we unlocked was:

And now, it can be fulfilled...

Step One: Install the App

The iOs version is available here: iOs OnyxDice App  

The Android version is available here: Android Version App

Once installed (or updated to the latest version, for those who already have it installed), those backers who should be receiving the Geist: The Sin-Eaters digital dice as one of our Stretch Goal rewards can unlock the new dice.

Remember, these digital dice were part of the Stretch Goals so were automatically added to backers who are set to receive this reward.

Step Two: Enter your Kickstarter E-Mail to Redeem

Click on the triangle to pull down the system menu

Enter the e-mail address used for your Kickstarter account in the Redemption field and press ENTER

Remember to use the options in settings to customize your rolls to reflect your ruleset and difficulty options (there are two presets built in for quick selection, but you can customize with several options).

If the redemption process is not working for you, please check the following:

Is the OnyxDice Geist D10 part of your rewards list? You can check on BackerKit for a complete list of rewards you should be expecting.  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 this reward is listed as part of your Reward Tier, double-check that you're using the correct e-mail address for redemption.

If the Digital D10 is not part of your rewards list as noted on your BackerKit page, you will not be able to unlock the Geist D10 at this time.

If you should be receiving this reward but it doesn't appear on your reward list, or if you're not sure which e-mail address you should be using, contact me contact me via the Kickstarter Contact Creator button or post in the comments on this Update and I will work with you to solve the issue.

FOR ALL OTHER TECHNICAL ISSUES with the OnyxDice App, you can contact the developers at their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/OnyxDiceApp where they can help you out.

That's one more reward delivered, as we move toward releasing the Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition backer PDF, which shouldn't be too much longer... And, as this campaign takes another step forward, let me take a brief moment to spotlight our current campaign, which has just launched and already hit 200% of it's funding target...

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

We're just on the cusp of things, with stuff just over the horizon... but not quite visible yet. So, another quick update to start 2019.

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

Speaking of which...

The Kickstarter for They Came From Beneath The Sea! is nearing the end!  

They Came From Beneath The Sea! is a new tabletop RPG from Onyx Path, encompassing the wonder, horror, thrills, and hilarity of 1950s science fiction. This game evokes all that is great in the B-movies of decades ago, and provides a dynamic, fun experience at the table.  

The players, as humans, live in a world under increasing attack. The attackers? Aliens from beneath the sea, obviously!  

Adventures can range from the one-shot defense of small coastal town, to the lengthier liberation of a cruise ship invested with gill-kin, all the way to a campaign in which characters seize an alien submarine and ride it all the way down to the sea bed to take the fight to the invaders.  

Put down your malt shakes, turn on the jukebox, and prepare your harpoons! You don’t want to be caught unawares when it’s revealed that They Came From Beneath The Sea!

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).

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

Welcome to November 2018, and an early entry in what will be our regular monthly status updates. And, to prepare you, many of these will be similar: "Progress is still being made, we're moving forward, but it'll be some time still before the project is complete."

Why is James dressed as a vampire? Isn't Halloween over? Read on to find out...

Quick Summary: Hoping to have another reward sent out within the next month, but it'll be a while before we start to get close to the final Geist PDF or some of the other Stretch Goal PDFs. Stay tuned, and enjoy the ride!



The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: https://geist2e.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected.

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
