  • They Came From the Last Few Days! [Monday Meeting Notes]

    Yes, we’re down to the last few days of this extra-long Kickstarter campaign for They Came From Beneath the Sea!

    Holding a Kickstarter over the Xmas holidays is always a risky venture, but we’re pretty happy with the response we’ve gotten from this brand-new game. The extra time time allow a bunch of groups to try out playing the Early Access version that is available to all backers, and it seems like hilarity has been had by all!

    Except for one group, actually.

    But, to be fair,...

  • 1001 Nightmares [Dark Eras 2]

    Hello, everyone! Meghan here, with a preview excerpt for you from the One Thousand and One Nightmares era, including two of the four Kindred covenants prominent in the Islamic Golden Age. Let me tell you a story…

    Golden Age Covenants

    Even at its height, the Camarilla never touched many of the Abbasid Caliphate’s lands. The covenants here evolved independently of those in Europe, although pockets where the Invictus and Lancea et Sanctum hold sway exist in the caliphate’s western reaches.

  • Scenes From Mid-Winter [Monday Meeting Notes]

    Here’s our Onyx Path gang, minus yours truly as I took the pic, at Mader’s, the enduring German cuisine restaurant in Milwaukee, where we had our Onyx Path Summit dinner after seven hours of Summitting. So if our heroes look a bit beat, well, seven hours of meeting after most of us flew in that morning, and then some imported beer, will start to tell.

    Beat, but happy.

    Matthew sits in Mader’s Big Giant Chair for the first time!

    Fiction Friday: Vigilant

    An excerpt from the Prologue of Through Shadows and Dreams Book One: Vigilant, a novel for the Scarred Lands setting.

    AV 150, the second Wildday of Tanot

    Eochaid crouched under the foliage, breathing slowly and listening. The asaatthi were out there somewhere, searching for him — maybe ratmen and hags as well. He kept out of the light, hugging the shadows, trying to stay low. He heard the crack of a tree branch. A bird fluttered past, spooked from its nest. Someone — or something — was nearby.

  • Vance [Cavaliers of Mars]

    As many of you know, Rose’s elevator pitch for Cavaliers was “if Mars has canals, Mars must have a Venice.” That Venice appears in Cavaliers as Vance. Here’s an excerpt from the Cavaliers of Mars rulebook covering the city of Vance.

    In the central portion of Meridian, Vance lies atthe intersection of several canals, and is thus rich in Mars’ most valuable commodity: water. The city is actually built on top of the canals, creating, at the surface, a network of subcanals that carry freight and people.

  • Now Available: Map of Concordia!

    Now available in print from DriveThruRPG: Concordia Map!

    The gates to Arcadia, the original paradise, are closed. Only the world of humanity remains. Without any awareness of our true nature, humankind crushes us beneath its banal heel. Joy and laughter are gone; only the Dreaming remains. We are changelings, the forgotten ones, neither fully fae nor wholly mortal. The last of our kind on Earth, we have built ourselves an invisible kingdom. We are everywhere, yet you have never seen us. 

    The poster version of this beautiful Changeling:...

    They Came From Beneath the Sea! art by Aaron Riley

    Hi all! Matthew here, with some sample Cinematics from They Came from Beneath the Sea! to whet your appetites in anticipation of the full list. I hope you enjoy!

    Bad Dubbing

    The doctor peered over the lip of the railing surrounding the balcony. He could make out several shapes below, conversing openly. They chittered and barked in that bizarre language of theirs.

    “Do you understand any of it?” asked Pete.

  • They Came From Mid-Winter! [Monday Meeting Notes]

    Of course, Mid-Winter is a lot colder, but inside where the convention is, it’s nice.

    Above, is an illustration from They Came From Beneath the Sea! of the sorts of terrors, horrors, and monsters, you face while playing our new game. Right now, its Kickstarter is doing really well for a totally new game, yet we’d love more backers getting a chance to playtest via the Early Access version available to every backer.

    And, we’d also love folks to download the backer previews of the actual text and let us know what...

  • Claws and Effect: The War of Cats and Dogs [Realms of Pugmire]

    Last time I talked about the fate of humanity, and how I enjoy leaving contradictory information for players to find. I get a lot of that from years of working on properties like Vampire: The Masquerade, which is a game all about endless threads, mysteries, and conspiracies. The games in the Realms of Pugmire aren’t as much about that, so I take a lighter touch, but the truth is people misremember and confuse details even within a generation. Sometimes, even within a decade or so. And there’s no better example of that than the War of Dogs and Cats.

  • Bale Hounds [Shunned by the Moon]

    Hi all, it’s Matthew Dawkins here with some content from Shunned by the Moon, the upcoming Night Horrors book for Werewolf: The Forsaken. What I particularly love about this book is how it can act as an excellent bestiary for all the Chronicles of Darkness lines, though the Bale Hounds are a strong competitor for biggest thorn in the Forsakens’ sides in this book. Here’s some extracts for you relating to these infernal bastards.

  • They Came From 2018! [Monday Meeting Notes]

    So we end the year of 2018! So odd that Dec 31 is on a Monday Meeting day, so we’re really just squeaking the meeting in before everybody goes hither and yon to their New Year‘s celebrations.

    Amazingly, almost everybody was there, and so I have a few points we discussed before ending this year’s worth of MMN blogs with our Onyx Path crew’s New Year’s Resolutions. Let’s get to it!

    In the usual explosion of Kickstarter Updates we sent out last week, I started with a very special one to our Scarred...
