  • Fiction Friday: Scion: Origin

    Presenting “Apple,” written by the inimitable Kieron Gillen, from the upcoming Scion: Origin.

    Everyone liked Donnie. They always liked him.

    Donnie served the girl her cappuccino. She glanced down, and her eyes widened in delight. Written in the froth, in perfect foam writing, was the word “Brittany.”

    “How did you know my name?”

    Donnie shrugged a sculpted shoulder. “When you walked in the door, I just looked at you and thought… there’s a Brittany.” He unleashed his matinee-idol smile for a second. “Was I right?”...

  • The People of the Labyrinth [Cavaliers of Mars]

    The rumors are many and varied. Cannibal tribes run by a magical woman, people who can create water out of nothing, glowing plants and animals that give any who eat them mystical powers. I’m going to find out for myself what lies in the Labyrinth of Night once and for all.

    – The last entry in the diary of Diokel, explorer

    Soon after the First Martians disappeared, as the Red Martians made their way across the planet to settle cities, a group of voyagers made their way into the Wyeth Valley. They did not make contact with the Wyeth, but instead traveled far to the...

  • Book of Oblivion [Wraith: The Oblivion]


    Matthew Dawkins here, to talk a little about Book of Oblivion for Wraith: The Oblivion 20th Anniversary Edition! The writing of this book proceeds apace, as we endeavor to include new Arcanoi, provide fresh looks at antagonists, make environmental horror a real thing (especially in the Underworld), and give new coverage to heretofore only mentioned Necropoli and Kingdoms the world over.

    It’s an exciting time to be on a Wraith book.

    Honestly, one of the things I love about working on Wraith is the ability to provide deeper and darker coverage of material...

  • Gen (Pros and) Cons [Monday Meeting Notes]

    Hi, everybody!

    It’s good to be back after a week away post-Gen Con. So I’m going to tell you a little bit of what went on there, from my point-of-view, of course, but I’m also going to intersperse some quotes from some of our Onyx Path folks who were there helping us.

    Of course, the first big thing we announced there was that we’re publishing Chicago By Night for Vampire 5th Edition!

    We actually did feel kinda bad that we couldn’t tell you about it sooner, in that we do try and keep our inner workings pretty transparent for all...

  • Fiction Friday: Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition

    Today’s sample comes from “No Fear is There for the Wide-Awake,” the introductory fiction to Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition.

    If, with perceptions polluted, one speaks or acts,
    Thence suffering follows
    As a wheel the draught-ox’s foot.
    — The Dhammapada, Chapter I: The Pairs, Verse 1
    There’s a boy on a boat in a purple sky, where the air flashes like catastrophic dragons and a patch-eyed man lays a heavy hand on that boy’s shoulder and tells him This is where the world dies, son.

    …but this isn’t the way it happened...

  • Just D&D With Dogs [Realms of Pugmire]

    Eddy returns with the latest “Claws & Effect”:

    Last post, I talked about the number one question I get about Pugmire (“Can I play as my favorite breed?”). Today, I want to cover the other side — my number one criticism. Time and again I’ll wade into a forum thread or Facebook post about Pugmire, and someone will say “Oh, that’s just D&D with dogs.” And that’s both right and wrong.

    Yes, it’s based on the d20 OGL used for 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. And unlike some OGL-based...

    All the stories they told you about what it would be like after you died? They were wrong.

    There is no Heaven and there is no Hell. There’s only the Underworld, with the ravening maw of Oblivion at the bottom and the impossible dream of Transcendence at the top. And in between, all the Restless Dead.

  • Karroo Mining Colony [Trinity Continuum: Æon]

    John Snead brings us this excerpt from Trinity Continuum: Æon:

    Isolation Followed by a Dramatic Rescue
    Then the Upeo wa Macho disappeared, and Earth heard nothing more from Karroo Mining Colony for nearly seven years. Given the lack of reinforcements and support from Earth and the likelihood that the Chromatic attacks had continued, the UAN assumed that the colony had been lost.

  • Back from Gen Con and We’re Dead Tired! [Monday Meeting Notes]

    Wraith20 Print Proof from Gen Con


    Matthew Dawkins here! I imagine I look pretty damn frightening after a week in Indianapolis for Gen Con. My tie may have loosened or top button come undone… Still, my purpose guest blogging isn’t to scare you but to enthuse you, because…

  • Fiction Friday: Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition

    As most of our crew are running around at Gen Con, let me tell you a story. It Happened to Me.


    So he’s me, kind of. Better job, better relationship with my — our — mom. Takes selfies and posts photos of his matcha lattes and his wife and their million adopted babies. Gross.

    He’s… not married to Katrina, though. And I sort of thought we would be. I mean, I followed the scent of her hair back out of Arcadia. Rolled it around in my mouth like a peppermint as I ran, brisk and clean and full of unkept promises. When I stood in the long...

  • Gen Con Will Be the Death of Us! [Monday Meeting Notes]

    Yes, this is the week we go to Gen Con. It is also the last day of the Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition Kickstarter, so act now before time runs out for death. Uh, I have no idea where that line of thought took me.

    Anyway, back to Gen Con. Months of preparation to be sure we get the right people to the right events, demos, and booth time, with the right combination of books and stuff to amuse and entice folks into getting more involved with Onyx Path and our many fascinating worlds.
