July 2020 Update
7 days ago – Fri, Jul 31, 2020 at 02:56:33 AM

Hello Renegades,

Can you believe it's already the final week of July? I've hit the point where time has pretty much lost all meaning. Slow days, fast years, as they say.

Congratulations! You've caught me at my rambling best!

No major changes to our main project status, but I do want to share some Deviant fun before we have our project round-up! A Cautionary Tale, a new chronicle running on Onyx Path's Twitch Channel, has been started by Deviant: The Renegades developer Eric Zawadzki. Check out a special Session Zero below, as they gear up to begin their chronicle.

June 2020 Update
about 1 month ago – Wed, Jul 01, 2020 at 11:29:50 AM

Hello Renegades,

No major updates for this month (our project is still in the earliest stages of the post-kickstarter process), but wanted to make sure I continue my monthly update posts to track all of our rewards and continue to share any info about the project (and other Onyx Path projects) so we're all in the loop.

Cross it, crack it, twitch, update it

I do want to share this exciting bit of fun! As you may know, Onyx Path hosted a Virtual Gaming Convention earlier this month, featuring interesting panels discussing their processes and projects as well as other relevant topics. You can check out the videos on their Twitch Channel or search #OnxyPathCon on Youtube

BUT, best of all, they (and their partners at Gehenna Gaming) ran some great Onyx Path games, including Deviant: The Renegades! Now you can watch this Actual Play session! 

DEVIANT: THE RENEGADES ACTUAL PLAY

Join Gehenna Gaming GM Nick Francia and a host of players as we dive into Onyx Path Publishing's Deviant: The Renegades!

Pretty cool to see the game we helped fund in action, isn't it?!

FINAL DAYS ON KICKSTARTER

Grab your friends and escape to another world!

You've found an enchanted portal — a transition point — between worlds. The portal, called a Crossing, takes you to a world you thought only existed in novels and films: a magical land where dragons roam the skies, orcs and hobgoblins terrorize weary travelers, and unicorns prance through the forest. It is a world where humans join other peoples such as elves, trolls, dwarves, changelings, and the dreaded creatures who steal the night. It is a world of fantasy — of imagination.

It is the Realm.

It is Legendlore.

Final Week on Kickstarter!

May 2020 Update
2 months ago – Wed, May 27, 2020 at 11:40:04 PM

Hello Renegades,

I hope you're all keeping well and managing as best possible. Believe it or not, another month has flown by and it's time for my regular month end status update.

Working from home!

Before we review our current reward status, I just wanted to note a recent Chronicles of Darkness release that may be of interest.

Now available in PDF and print from Storytellers Vault: Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras 2!

For millennia, monsters have hunted and fought alongside us…

Rebellions swell and vampires feed. Casualties of war draw Reapers to blood-soaked battlefields. Gilded ages benefit mortals and monsters alike.

How? Why? What role do the monsters play with us —- and each other?

Dark Eras 2 explores 13 new eras scattered throughout the history of the Chronicles of Darkness. Each chapter features two to three game lines which include Vampire: The RequiemMage: The AwakeningHunter: The VigilChangeling: The Lost, and more!

The rules in this book are compatible with second edition Chronicles of Darkness. Each terrifying time period and location is examined through the supernatural creatures that dwell there.

Unlock the past. Find out what hides in the shadows.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • Historically inspired settings and story hooks
  • Character-creation tips and gameplay advice
  • New Tilts, Conditions, and era-appropriate rules

Because of general quarantine conditions, we wanted to make it easier for you to get the stuff you wanted in order to play your games, so like Dark Eras 1, we also broke out the individual chapters as separate products:

No major changes this month, as the Onyx Path team continues to work from home and plug away on their projects. I will continue to post our list of delivered and pending rewards with each monthly update, so that we can track everything that's needed and keep on the same page. Also, feel free to check out Onyx Path's Monday Meeting Notes posts that I mentioned (linked here) which will give you a weekly status report on ALL of the projects Onyx Path has on the go.

April 2020 Update
3 months ago – Tue, Apr 28, 2020 at 11:49:29 PM

Hello Renegades,

Welcome to the end of April. Also, it's currently Tuesday where I am. I don't know if that helps you, but I've been breaking away from the traditional calendar and just going with Daytime and Nighttime lately. Anyway, the calendar is beeping and says it's time for our regular month end status update! So, here we go!

I've gone full MIB!

JUST LAUNCHED ON KICKSTARTER

Welcome to the Future

As the third decade of the 21st century dawns, the Technocratic Union stands on the cutting edge of a future imperiled. As science and technology draw humanity closer than ever before, certain factions within the Masses display gross negligence, undermining the Union’s work and endangering the world for shortsighted gains. Despite global telecommunications, new frontiers in virtually every field of study, and an understanding of the universe only dreamed of by earlier generations, humanity faces threats on all sides.

Can You Save It?

Climate change threatens to destroy life as we know it. Religious fundamentalism breeds terror around the globe. Diseases, once eradicated in the developed world through vaccination, have returned due to antivaxxer movements. Totalitarian, nationalist governments rise as the Masses succumb to fear of the other. The world stands on the brink of destruction, and it is up to the agents and operatives of the Technocratic Union to save it…or be its ultimate destruction.

Technocracy Reloaded peels back the curtain and examines the role of the Technocracy in Mage 20th Anniversary Edition. The various Future Fates presented in Mage 20 are examined and this book introduces a few of its own. This book provides a detailed look at life within the Technocracy, expanded information on the Conventions, a wealth of equipment, Adjustments, and Procedures, a breakdown of the various shadow conspiracies and factions within the Technocratic Union, and tips for running your own Technocracy Chronicle.

NOW ON KICKSTARTER! CHECK IT OUT!

Reward Delivery: Backer T-shirts Available for a Limited Time!
4 months ago – Fri, Apr 17, 2020 at 03:04:35 PM

Hello Renegades,

I don't know about you, but I've sort of lost track of the days, and somehow every day has become casual Friday. Maybe even a little more casual than casual Friday, to be honest.

But I've got my best track pants on!

I could use a slight wardrobe change, even if it's just to mix up the pattern a bit. And, today, I've got a new option!

REWARD DELIVERY: KICKSTARTER T-SHIRT LINK

I sorta love the idea of wearing a shirt with DEVIANT in big letters across the front!

One of our Stretch Goals during the kickstarter campaign was a special discounted-for-a-limited-time Kickstarter Backer Deviant: The Renegades T-shirt.

If you click over to Onyx Path's REDBUBBLE T-shirt Shop you will see the Deviant: The Renegades T-shirt, which will be available at a discounted price for a LIMITED TIME ONLY! You have ONE WEEK to order this shirt if you'd like to put off doing laundry for one more day!

And, just like our favorite renegades, these shirts come in different shapes and sizes, so don't forget to scroll through and check out your options!

One last time: This shirt will be available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY - please act quickly if you're interested! 

Click on over to check out the shirts

See you in a few weeks with our regular month-end status update. Until then, stay safe and take care of yourselves!
