Today we take a preview of Enemy Action, the opening fiction from Demon: The Descent:
Ms. Book and Kyle stood at the police cordon, looking at the wreckage strewn across the clearing. Book spoke briefly to an officer, then jerked her head, signaling Kyle as she strolled nonchalantly back to the car.
“What’s going on?” Kyle asked.
“They are still claiming a light aircraft crashed in the park,” she said, tapping at her emergency phone.
She raised a single finger. Quiet. Then dialed Mr. Knight. The other demon...

Now Available: More Requiem Bloodline Shirts!Unfortunately, Rich didn’t get the proofs he was waiting for in time to have any new books on sale this week. Fortunately, that means we get to further fill out our shirt selection!
These bloodlines go all the way back to the first edition Vampire: The Requiem rulebook.

Fiction Friday: The God-Machine ChronicleToday’s slice is a look at Road Gospel by Chuck Wendig, as featured in The God-Machine Chronicle Anthology. Road Gospel originally appeared in World of Darkness: Midnight Roads.
Under the light of her crooked lamp, I could see that Mom didn’t look so good. Sitting there in the ratty recliner, I knew she was old, but she wasn’t that old. In the pale light of the poorly lit house, her skin almost looked translucent. The way it hung off her in places, sags of skin unanchored to muscle or bone.
“You sick?” I asked her. “Be straight with me, Mom.”...

March Pugmire UpdateGreetings, citizens of Pugmire! It’s time for another update!
PUGMIRE CORE RULEBOOK
The Backer PDF went out, and we got some great errata. Thanks so much to the people who took the time to point out those little problems that can sometimes creep in — it’ll never be perfect, but you’ve saved me from some of the more embaressing typos! The book is now off for indexing, which means we’ll probably have a final version in April. And then, off to the printers to make beautiful physical books!
SCREEN, DICE, AND CARDS
Now that the text...
Fiction Friday: Scion: HeroToday we look at a slice of Carl Bowen’s Birthright, the introductory fiction from the first edition of Scion: Hero:
The next morning, Eric awoke hearing a conversation about wars in the Holy Land. The television was on and broadcasting the news. He sat up to blearily paw around for the remote and was shocked to find Sylvester, the desk clerk, sitting in the vinyl chair beside his bed. The lanky fellow clicked the TV off and smiled at Eric, as if his being there weren’t at all strange.
“Morning!” Sylvester said. “I let myself in.”

“They say to judge a man by the company he keeps. By this measure, as by any other, we are liars and monsters.”
— Getter Kahn, Bishop of Filth
Vampires gather under many banners. But five have endured the tumult of Western history better than any other. The Carthian Movement. The Circle of the Crone. The Invictus. The Lancea et Sanctum. The Ordo Dracul. Each has its fierce devotees, its jealous rivals, and its relentless enemies. Now,for the first time, the covenants speak...
Allegiance: Archangel [Trinity Continuum]The astute among you may have noticed that the Trinity Continuum rulebook has (finally) moved up the production list. The bottleneck I’ve previously mentioned has been cleared thanks to the tireless efforts of Danielle Harper, who is now acting as our Storypath developer after the departure of Neall. Neall kept saying he had his own game line to develop, but he kept talking about “psions,” and I’m pretty sure we only have one psion game in development. Weird.
Please give a warm welcome to Danielle!
In celebration, I figured it was time to drop...
Something New Approacheth…[Monday Meeting Notes]Yes, we are actually closing in on the Kickstarter for Justin Achilli’s casual vampire card game, Prince’s Gambit. This is the first time Onyx Path will be offering a card game on Kickstarter, so it is a very new thing for us. And as we have heard it said: Anything done for the first time unleashes a demon!
Hopefully, in this case, we’re unleashing a demonic whirlwind of fun. But, I guess we’ll see. Certainly the playtesters who have had several iterations of the game to play through have seemed to really like it – especially this latest version!

Fiction Friday: The Cainite ConspiraciesThis week we look at Acts of Cruelty by Justin Achilli, a piece from the V20 Dark Ages anthology The Cainite Conspiracies.
Nojus petitioned the eldest Cainite in the domain of nearby Voruta, troubled at the foulness of the acts that had the mortals of the city reaching for their brands. His brood had nominated him for his wisdom and esteem to make the trip to Voruta, distant from their own domain, but along the well-traveled paths worn first by mortal feet then by the undead in their wake. Voruta, where the king-to-be Mindaugas would shield himself within stony walls from the ill-tempered...

Fallen blossoms do not return to branches.
Japan is moving into the Edo Period. New laws and new ways of thinking wash over the land, and with a new order come new threats to humanity. Take a look at the Vigil in a time where samurai transition from warlords to bureaucrats, Japan massively and lethally rejects outside influence, and when Edo rapidly grows into a world power.
This is a single chapter from the larger work, Chronicles...

Whoah, Nelly! [Monday Meeting Notes]The Masters Tools for Dark Eras Companion by Justin Norman
Don’t startle the bronco, as so far it’s a bit of a calmer start to this week than last. (Last week’s blog was entitled “Bucking Broncos” for those unfortunate few who missed it). While I expect that horse to start buckin’ any minute now, let’s enjoy the calm between yee-haws!
I’m feeling better this week, thanks for asking. The coughing can still be back-muscle-tearing intense, but the spells are less frequent and I finally...
