The first entry in our Exalted Antagonists series, Adversaries of the Righteous: Harrowing Silence, is now live!
From the bustling streets of Nexus to the savage western seas, Creation is ripe with threats to mortals and Chosen alike. Crooked traders, vile occultists, and even zealous protectors of the Realm can be found in every city, satrapy, and region waiting for unsuspecting targets or standing their ground as they prepare for the inevitable.
In this collection you will meet new foes, encounter old enemies, and learn the inner workings of several different factions...

Adversaries of the Righteous: Harrowing Silence [Exalted]
Fiction Friday: Tales of the Dark ErasTales from the Dark Eras contains stories from many of the eras covered in Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras. This week we look at Dry Spell, a story by Renee Ritchie set in Vampire: The Requiem’s late 16th century.
“For crimes against the state and the pacts of our safety and contaminating the masses upon whom we feed, Abbot Nathaniel Pendleton is hereby condemned to Final Death, to be carried out immediately. Court is adjourned.”
While not the most ideal words to hear upon returning to court, that utterance confrmed that I was, indeed, home, if nearly...
Revising Endowments [Hunter: The Vigil]Hunter: The Vigil logo
Fans who are already familiar with Hunter: The Vigil know that Endowments are special abilities given to hunters who are part of a conspiracy. In Hunter: The Vigil 2nd Edition, we have decided to rework Endowments to mesh better with 2E rules.
Today, I am linking to our first attempt to redesign Endowments. I want to stress that this draft, which is timestamped April 27, 2017, does not represent the final ruleset or a confirmed approach. I felt that this change was perfect to share via OpenDevelopment, and your feedback will make our design stronger....

Now Available: Lore of the Bloodlines and our first Amazon fiction!Now available in PDF and print from DriveThruRPG: Lore of the Bloodlines, a companion volume to our earlier Lore of the Clans.
The Clans are not the only vampires that strut, if I might steal from the Bard, upon this great stage of fools. There are the errant Kindred inaccurately collected under the sobriquet of “bloodlines.” While their role in the eternal conflict between the childer of Caine is small, it is often incredibly impactful.
As such, I provide this corollary to my original study. It would be the work of several lifetimes to find and document...
Dragon-Blooded Charms preview! [Exalted]Hey y’all. Vance here, with a preview from our upcoming book Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought. Keeping in mind that this isn’t final draft material and is still subject to significant change, let’s dive into our first preview for the Dragon-Blooded Charms.
Dragon-Blooded Charms are drawn from their Abilities, like the Solars, but in addition, each Charm resonates with the Essence of one or more of Creation’s five elements: Air, Earth, Fire, Water, and Wood.
Cost: 5m; Mins: Awareness 2, Essence 1; Type: Simple
Up the Amazon Without a Paddle [Monday Meeting Notes]Samedi for V20 Lore of the Bloodlines by Mark Kelly
Something about the Samedi illo by Marvelous Mark Kelly just works to encompass the overall feeling coming out of today’s meetings. Lots and lots of stuff was discussed, all being pushed, prodded, and pulled forward with a ton of energy.
Some highlights (basically the ones I can talk about):
1- Our Extended Media team “Amazon Explorers”, Bill Bridges and Valerie Tate, has completed the first wave of six fiction books into ebooks for sale on Amazon! That’s V20...
Fiction Friday: The Beast Within RevisedToday we go a little further back. The Beast Within Revised dates back to December 2000, but Onyx Path recently recreated it for ebook formats. This story is Gherbod Fleming’s The Inquiry.
[From the interview of Archon Theo Bell, Clan Brujah, on 14 November 1999, conducted by Justicar Mme. Guil, Clan Toreador.]
MG: And so, in your estimation, Archon Bell, at the point at which you lured Prince Vitel to the warehouse, he remained unaware of your harmful intent toward him?
TB: Do you think he’d have got in that car if he’d thought I was gonna blow...
Now in Print: Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes!Now available in PDF and print on demand from DriveThruRPG: Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes!
Sure, you can do what you want, feed from the locals, and go back to hiding in your lair when you’re done.
You may think you’re safe there, it sure feels safe.
But, you aren’t the only thing connected to the Primordial Dream, and no lair is safe from what lurks beyond.
Don’t fool yourself.
— Naomi Walker, Ugalla

24 Hour Warning for the Prince’s Gambit Kickstarter24 hours remain on the Prince’s Gambit Kickstarter for a Vampire: The Masquerade card game!
Prince’s Gambit is a casual card game where each player is a vampire called to the court of the vampiric Prince of the city. Players must cooperate to gain the favor of the Prince while deducing who among them are secretly the traitorous Sabbat infiltrators.
Designed by long-time Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop RPG developer Justin Achilli, Prince’s Gambit is a fast-paced social deduction game set within the world of Vampire, but which requires no special...

Prince’s Gambit & Its Final Nights (on Kickstarter) [Monday Meeting Notes]Autarkis Grudge from Prince’s Gambit by Michael Gaydos
Yes, we’re getting all crazy here at the end (or at least the end on Thursday) of the Prince’s Gambit casual card game Kickstarter, and we’re thrilled with how well it has gone so far! As I mentioned at the start, this is a very different kind of KS if only because it is a card game, and we’ve never done one of them on KS before!
So seeing how this KS compares and contrasts to our Deluxe KSs has been fascinating and we haven’t yet seen the end. The price...
Fiction Friday: Convention Book: N.W.O.This week Control requests all units file in for Processing, as transcribed in the opening pages of Convention Book: N.W.O.:
Day 1 – Installation #417
As the soldiers lead him to his fate, Frank Burlingame’s first thought is that the Technocracy needs to stop embracing tired science fiction clichés.
They have him bound and immobile, yet somehow floating with them through corridors of chrome, soft blue light emanating from the spaces between panels. No windows, no smells in the perfectly sterilized air.
He can’t identify the cause...

Dark Eras: Beneath the Skin, a setting for Skinchangers and Demon: The Descent:
There is a face beneath this mask, but it isn’t me. I’m no more that face than I am the muscles beneath it, or the bones beneath that.

A walk in the Hedge [Changeling: The Lost]Hi, folks, Rose here. ^_^ Today, I’d like to share more about the fundamentals of the Changeling setting through an excerpt from Chapter 2, covering the Hedge and the beings who live there.
Without further ado….
The Hedge is always around the edges of the mundane world. In the lonely places, where yours is the only breath stirring the air; in the uncanny places, where fear quickens your step; in the liminal places, where you hang in the balance between here and there. An abandoned office park, weedy grass breaking through broken asphalt; a...
Do Me a Favor, Prince [Monday Meeting Notes]Another fine piece of art from the Prince’s Gambit card set by Mark Kelly. This time, of course, it’s the Sabbat, which makes a lot of sense since part of the game is to figure out who among those playing is the Sabbat infiltrator or infiltrators. There’s more info down below in the BLURBS! section about the Prince’s Gambit Kickstarter, if you want to check it out.
Speaking of Kickstarters, somebody asked me what kinds of KSs I have backed and what compels me to back them. Which was a very different sort of question than I usually get asked, so thanks! So,...
Fiction Friday: Dreams of AvariceToday we look at part of the Translator’s Preface of Dreams of Avarice, an artifact book for Mummy: The Curse written by Malcolm Sheppard.
The groups had weird profles: multi-ethnic, but never members of the usual channels for foreign fghters. No Qurans, but no alternative literature either. They weren’t anarchists, communists, Ba’athist revivalists, local monarchists, or anything else that fit our early conflict models. They had money, but never too much cash in one spot, and that meant they had steady incomes. Yet the biggest anomaly sat far outside my area of...
What if the Salubri survived? [V20: Dark Ages Companion]Greetings, fellow Cainites!
The title of this blog is the kind of question to make fellow writer and developer Neall Raemonn Price disturbingly euphoric. He has an odd fetish for those three-eyed soul-sucking demonspawn learned vampires know as “Salubri.”
Well, V20 Dark Ages Companion is coming soon, so I thought I’d post to the blog about it.

As covered in previous posts, V20 Dark Ages Companion profiles several domains around the known world, including a couple largely unaffected...

The Autumn Court [Changeling: The Lost]Hi, folks. Rose here. ^_^
A question came up on the forums about how the Seasonal Courts work when they’re in and out of power. I thought it’d be cool to have a look at one of the full Court writeups from Chapter 1. The Courts were written by Changeling‘s original creator, Ethan Skemp, who’s rejoining us for this book!

(Please link this blog post if you want to share the preview, rather than linking the Google doc directly.)
Other Court models are also in the core book. Every setting in Chapter...
It’s In the Cards x1000 [Monday Meeting Notes]How Intriguing!
I know, bad joke. (More on that later). But excellent Intrigue cards from the Prince’s Gambit social-deduction card game, pictured above. Our Kickstarter is just finishing up its first two weeks and we’re already 400% funded and have reached over 1000 backers!
That last factoid is actually really significant, as it’s a milestone I love to see with our KSs. I think in comic book publishing that’s called the Golden Thousand, and applies to a creator who can rely on that many fans, at least, picking up and talking about their latest...
[Scion] A Path Not TakenHey, buckaroos. As part of our tradition of openness, we’re giving you a look behind the scenes at how a game comes together. Early in the production process, Scion 2nd Edition was going in a very different direction, a direction which had to be scrapped at the last minute and at great expense. A sample of some of the tie-in fiction from that early incarnation of Scion 2nd Edition, Frost Giant Butt Warriors, has been placed on DriveThru for your reading, uh, pleasure. Although we’ve found no author name attached to this, we fired Neall just in case.
Eric Donner just can’t...
