March 2022 Update
about 2 months ago – Tue, Mar 29, 2022 at 02:55:44 AM

Greetings Garou,

Final days of March, and time for our regular month end update. Nothing major to announce this month, so let's dive right in!

REWARDS STILL PENDING

Alt text: no major changes since last month. Our main book and the two stretch goal books are in editing, and art direction has begun on our main reward.

So, the Stretch Goal supplements had moved so fast and are now being fine-tuned in editing. No major movement from last month, but everything's in a good position.

ONYX PATH PROJECT TRACKING

Rich has modified the way he's running the Project Tracking this year. At the end of each month, Onyx Path will be posting an update showing the current status of all of their projects and where each sits on the project tracking chart. In the weekly Monday Meeting Notes blogs, Rich will note any projects that have changed status, sometimes with developer notes, since the big monthly summary.

You can find February's complete project summary <here> and the weekly Monday Meeting blog updates <here>.

As always, I'll send an update at the end of each month summarizing our kickstarter rewards.

CURRENTLY CROWDFUNDING

The They Came From... tabletop roleplaying games take your favorite movies, television shows, and pop culture touchstones and turn them into action-packed and wise-cracking opportunities to tell your own versions of these cinematic stories. Previous releases have explored B-movie atomic horror from the 1950s (They Came from Beneath the Sea!) and twisted tales of horror from the 1960s and '70s (They Came from Beyond the Grave!). With this campaign, Onyx Path is ready to introduce TWO new entries enabling you to take on quest-filled fantasy adventure stories with They Came from the Cyclops's Cave! and thrilling tales of world-saving espionage with They Came from [CLASSIFIED]!

Now you can help Onyx Path bring these games to life by supporting either - or both! - with this Double Feature crowdfunding campaign!

February 2022 Update
3 months ago – Tue, Mar 01, 2022 at 09:25:43 AM

Greetings Garou,

As we prepare for March, it's time to get our month end review up and out and check on the status of our ongoing projects. I'm in the process of modifying how we present out pending reward lists, to make them a bit easier to grasp with a quick glance. It's a work in progress, but I think we'll figure it out.

ONYX PATHCAST ROUNDTABLE

Before we have our review, I just wanted to highlight the latest episode of Onyx Path's weekly podcast, in which Matthew Dawkins is joined by Cat Evans, Hiromi Cota, Leath Sheales, and Michele Masala to talk about Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition, in particular Apocalyptic Record and Howls of Apocalypse. 

Give it a listen <here> when you get a chance!

REWARDS STILL PENDING

alt text for page readers: our main book has begun art direction, while the manuscript for Apocalyptic Record as well as the stretch goal supplements Icons of Rage and Howls of the Apocalypse are all currently in editing.

I've compressed the Apocalyptic Record various formats that we previously listed individually - the PDF, the deluxe book, the discounted Print-on-Demand link - down to one line. It's really one project despite being three formats, and those rewards just go out at different stages of progress. It simplifies the list a bit. Lots of great progress on our Stretch Goal supplements as well, with all of our books in editing now.

REWARDS DISTRIBUTED TO BACKERS

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://apocalyptic-record.backerkit.com/

ONYX PATH PROJECT TRACKING

The team have sreamlined the way they present the overall project tracking on the Onyx Path website. A listing at the end of each month will review the status of all projects, while Rich's Monday Meeting Notes blog will only note those projects which have moved along since the last monthly summary.

You can find February's complete project summary <here> and the weekly Monday Meeting blog updates <here>.

I will continue to post an update each month until those final Stretch Goal rewards have gone out.

January 2022 Update

Hello Garou, howl ya doin'?

This is the first month end summary update of 2022, and will be a template for our regular updates over the course of the year. Looking back at the projected delivery dates from last year's Kickstarter campaign, we can see that we've still got a long way to go, but I'll be in touch at the end of every month to share any incremental progress made on the projects as well as to review our reward lists and touch base so that communication on this project is constant and consistent. 

So, let's get down to it...

ONYX PATH CROWDFUNDING IN 2021

Another challenging year. While there were some moments of taking two steps forward and one step back, at least there was some forward momentum. Onyx Path spent the previous year restructuring and adapting their processes to better function during the pandemic, but still external issues presented (and continue to present) challenges. Paper shortages, manufacturing difficulties, shipping and storage problems. The new normal.

Despite all of that, Onyx Path was able to get some products out, at least digitally, during the year.

CROWDFUNDED PROJECTS RELEASED IN 2021

While the massive paper shortage and manufacturing issues kept many of these from seeing print in 2021, they're all currently scheduled to attain physical form in early 2022. Here's hoping the process keeps moving forward and we can finally ship these rewards. Even with that caveat, that's still a pretty impressive list of stuff that's out and available to play.

PROJECTS CROWDFUNDED IN 2021

Another solid year and another batch of fun and interesting projects added to Onyx Path's future release list. In supporting these during the crowdfunding phase, we've also managed to add these extra projects to the schedule:

  • Scion: Dragon Companion
  • Scion: Dragon Jumpstart
  • Whispers from the Darkness (Masks of the Mythos Companion)
  • Victorian Mage Jumpstart
  • Bizarre Tales & Unusual Characters
  • Weird Wonders & Revolutionary Magick
  • Trinity Continuum: Adventure! Jumpstart
  • Adventure Addendum
  • Thrilling Tales
  • Exalted: Essence Novella Trilogy
  • Exalted: Essence Jumpstart
  • Exalted: Essence Adventure Scenario Trilogy
  • Exalted: Essence Companion
  • Squeaks in the Deep Companion
  • Squeaks in the Deep Jumpstart
  • Icons of Rage
  • Howls of the Apocalypse
  • Anima Companion

That's a long list of supplements and expansions that wouldn't exist without your support!

I hope your year ends well, and all the best for 2022!
