Latest Updates from Our Project:

August 2020 Update
18 days ago – Mon, Aug 31, 2020 at 10:06:57 PM

Kickstarter Backers!

Believe it or not, but we're on Day 242 of 2020, which means we've made it through the first two-thirds of the year.  And, also, it's time for our regular month end update.

What will the final third of 2020 bring?

No major changes this month, but we'll soon be entering the lockdown phase of BackerKit, as we finalize print quantities and work towards shipping in Q4 2020. We're not quite there yet, but if you want to take a peek at your BackerKit pages and ensure all is in order - payment methods are entered and set up for any post-campaign add ons or pre-orders, you've got your correct reward list, your address is entered and where you'll expect to be at the end of the year... it's safe to get it all in order ahead of our final call for lockdown.

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://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at  https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com/faq

COMING SOON TO KICKSTARTER

As a Hero, a Scion becomes a figure of myth and story, an exemplar of some virtue of their chosen society or the culture they’re born into. Even before their Visitation, the children of the Gods are a breed apart. But some want more than this lesser form of immortality, forever in the shadow of their parents. The golden ichor within the Scion’s heart sears and cooks them, ever burning away any human frailties of the Scion and driving them toward more audacious Deeds. They seek to become truly transformational figures, leaving The World forever different in their wake. At the fifth dot of Legend, it all reaches a tipping point, where the Scion is formed more of divine ichor than mortal flesh —more immortal than mortal, a true Demigod. They have declared to The World that they will not be pawns of Fate, but players in their own right. They will succeed in becoming a God, or they will die with their failure.

Everything up to this point was your prologue. Now it’s time to live your myth.

Scion: Demigod continues the path set down by Scion: Origin and Scion: Hero, expanding Scion Second Edition’s power level and charting the next level of power tiers for the Scions of the Gods. Players will take their characters through a tightly designed yet flexible story arc that ends in apotheosis or death – either way, the character will no longer be mortal after this book. Your characters don’t have to follow every Milestone with their Deeds — but they cannot run from their destiny once they’ve chosen to embrace it.

Coming Soon!

July 2020 Update
about 2 months ago – Tue, Jul 28, 2020 at 11:33:36 AM

Hello Kickstarter Backers,

Nothing quite as exciting as last months update, when the Backer PDF went out (make sure you've clicked your link and downloaded it, if you haven't already!), but this project is continuing to move forward so it's important we're keeping on top of things.

Stay safe, be well.

I anticipate us locking down BackerKit in the next month or two, so if you get a moment to review your info, ensure every add on you wanted is selected, confirm your payment information for any Add Ons or BackerKit payments, and confirm your address for shipping. We're not quite there, but will begin this final process before too much longer, so better to be safe than sorry. 

Once the lockdown process begins, I will send out an update with a timeline for each step, and regular reminders, so no need to panic. But there are so many things going on all at the same time, sometimes it's just better to get it out of the way and forget about it for now.

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://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at  https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com/faq

June 2020 Update - AND BACKER PDF DISTRIBUTION
3 months ago – Sat, Jun 27, 2020 at 10:00:17 PM

Hello Kickstarter Backers!

We've come a long way on this project (remember back in the days when I could make a stupid pun about the title? No interest in doing that anytime soon...) and I couldn't wait another day for our June month-end update.

Because today I've got the Contagion Chronicle Backer PDF to send out!

Final Week of June isn't too early for month end updates!

REWARD DISTRIBUTION

Your link to claim your Contagion Chronicle Backer PDF will be sent out by our BackerKit pledge manager over the next day. Since we are using our partners at DriveThruRPG as the host for this, you will need to set up a DriveThru account if you don't have one already. If you encounter any problems with downloading your rewards, please contact DTRPG's customer service to resolve the matter, they've always been top-rated for customer service. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/contact_us.php

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://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at  https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com/faq

The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected.

BACKER PDF VERSION

This is the first version of The Contagion Chronicle to be released. We've sent you these initial Backer PDFs for three reasons:

1) To thank you for your support! You're the reason this game exists - your ongoing support of the Chronicles of Darkness and The Contagion Chronicle kickstarter helped fund the development of this game  and bring this into the world, and you deserve to see it first!

2) So you can start playing right away! These are the actual rules for the Contagion Chronicle, and now it's time to join forces and work together to defeat a dangerous threat.

3) To make the final version the best it can be! The design and development teams have done their best to proofread and correct any errors and typos - but some always sneak through. If you catch any typos, incorrect math, visual glitches, and the like, we want to hear about them and correct them before we send the book off to print.

With that in mind, I'd like to introduce the Contagion Chronicle errata and correction process!

Onyx Path has launched a special Contagion Chronicle Errata Form, which you can access here: <Contagion Chronicle Errata Form>.

Generally, we try to keep errata collection open for the next 2 weeks, although it may be accessible a little bit longer due to the shifting nature of the world we're in now. Still, please report what you can as soon as possible to make sure we're getting everything covered.

We won't be collecting errata from other spots, just this specific form. Please note this form will be for errata only - typos, incorrect math, page elements that overlap incorrectly, etc. It won't be for book discussion - you can do that in a different thread, or on the Kickstarter comments page.

Also, they already know about the Page XX notations - those are usually corrected after any changes are made and the books are being finalized.

After any needed corrections are made (based on your feedback!), we will prepare an updated final PDF version of the book and you will receive a notice from DrivethruRPG that you can re-download your file with the latest version.

You've already made the book a reality with your Kickstarter support. Now you can make it even better by helping us crowdsource any minor errors and corrections.

FINAL WEEK ON KICKSTARTER

Final Week to join us for Legendlore!

May 2020 Update
4 months ago – Wed, May 27, 2020 at 11:40:00 PM

Hello Kickstarter Backers!

We're in the final week of May, so it's time for our month end project status update.

I hope everyone is doing as well as possible and keeping safe.

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:

FINAL DAY ON KICKSTARTER

This campaign ends May 28th at 2:00 PM EST

COMING TO KICKSTARTER NEXT WEEK

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.

April 2020 Update
5 months ago – Thu, Apr 30, 2020 at 10:00:14 AM

Hello kickstarter backers!

I hope you're all well and managing as best possible under these extraordinary circumstances. We've come to the end of another month, so it's time for our regular review of our projects and where we stand.

It's my daughter's birthday today, and I've been told that dinner will be "semi-formal" so I think this works. The sunglasses are the "semi" part.

  • Contagion Chronicle PoD Coupon
  • Digital Wallpaper
  • Player's Companion PDF
  • Global Outbreaks PDF

According to the most recent Monday Meeting Notes, Global Outbreaks is in Active Development, and the Player's Companion is in Editing, which means they're still being worked on and no major changes since last month. That's probably because the main book, the Contagion Chronicle itself, is in Proofing! Hopefully, there won't be too many errors or corrections and  and it can work it's way to us before too much longer! Still main sign-offs needed, but getting ever closer!

CURRENTLY 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!
