Latest Updates from Our Project:

September 2019 Update
9 months ago – Fri, Sep 27, 2019 at 12:40:52 PM

Hello Contagious,

No signs of change in our patients, but I do see some progress.

That's my weak doctor/contagious-themed way of saying that there are no big announcements in this update, but I wanted to make sure it goes out on schedule and keeps everyone on the same page.

It's James! And sometimes trying to say something in character is... tricky.

So, let's get to our month end status report and see where we are...

I'll 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 (linked here) which will give you a weekly status report on ALL of the projects Onyx Path has on the go (you may see spoilers for my monthly updates, or see what other kickstarter campaigns are currently running).

Deviant: The Renegades is the newest game line in the Chronicles of Darkness. That said, it's not quite so new to Contagion Chronicle backers! You've seen the Remade before - in Santiago, Chile! One of our Contagion sites was the first reference to Deviant: The Renegades! Gain a little more insight into that scenario site by checking out the latest Kickstarter from Onyx Path!

The latest game to be added to the Chronicles of Darkness...

You woke up… different. Someone changed you: on a slab, an operating table, an altar. By luck or by fate, you escaped. Hunted by your creators, they hold all the cards, and it seems they might recapture you. Except, what they don’t understand is they’ve stoked the fires of vengeance; what they did wasn’t right. What they don’t know is that now — you’re hunting them.

Deviant: The Renegades presents a game where the victims of experiments band together to bring down the monolithic organizations that twisted and warped them. Now funding Kickstarter from Onyx Path - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/deviant-the-renegades-a-tabletop-roleplaying-game

Also: More Monsters for 5th Edition Fantasy Gaming...

Onyx Path has teamed up with Handiwork Games to update and expand the legendary Creature Collection for their Scarred Lands 5th Edition setting! Right now, gangs of monsters are battling each other to see who gets to be included in the book! Join in and root for your favorites!

August 2019 Update
10 months ago – Fri, Aug 30, 2019 at 08:00:38 PM

Hello Contagious,

Sometimes the contagion spreads quickly, and sometimes it spreads slowly. We're in that slow phase, where early symptoms are still appearing. But, I wanted to check in on a regular basis to make things are continuing as they should.

James the Sworn...

July 2019 Update
11 months ago – Sat, Jul 27, 2019 at 09:17:34 PM

Hello Contagious,

As we approach the end of July, it's time for another status update. Again, this is a long process, and there will be a lot of "status normal, working through the production schedule..." posts, but I want to make sure that you get regular communication from me... even if it's not as pun-filled or exciting as you'd like.

It's Gen Con James. Feel free to say hi if you see me skulking around Indianapolis next week.

Gen Con 2019 Note
12 months ago – Thu, Jul 11, 2019 at 09:45:31 AM

Hello Contagious,

 I  just wanted to throw a quick update out to let you know about Onyx Path and Gen Con 2019.  

It's Gen Con James, preparing to cross over to the US for some gaming! (Get it? Crossover!)
It's Gen Con James, preparing to cross over to the US for some gaming! (Get it? Crossover!)

As you may have read in Onyx Path's recent Monday Meeting Notes blog, they won't have a booth in the Exhibit Hall this year. But that doesn't mean that Onyx Path won't be at the convention, or that you won't be able to pick up copies of your favorite games.

Instead, Onyx Path will be running seminars and game sessions, and leave the Exhibit Hall business to their sales partners - Studio 2 Publishing and Indie Press Revolution (IPR).

The Onyx Path team (Rich, Matt, Eddy, whoever else shows up...) will mostly be participating in the following panels during the convention: 

  • Thursday 3pm – What’s Up With Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich Thomas version)
  • Friday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Community Content? panel
  • Friday 3pm – Freelancing with Onyx Path Publishing? panel
  • Saturday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich-less version)

In addition, there are some programmed game sessions in the Event Guide.

While most of the games are currently marked as sold out this close to the convention, it's always a good idea to double-check if you're really interested. There are sometimes drop outs if people aren't feeling well or are unable to show, and a handful of generic tickets can maybe get you slotted into a vacated chair.

Of course, there will likely be a ton of pick-up and casual games over the Best Four Days in Gaming, so keep your eyes open for anyone wearing a cool T-shirt! I'll be dressed just like my avatar (although it's a few years old now, so imagine with more white in the beard!) so feel free to say hello if you see me!

I'll be back with our regular month end update in 2 weeks!

June 2019 Update
about 1 year ago – Fri, Jun 28, 2019 at 01:51:47 AM

Hello Contagious,

Another month gone by, another status update!

It's James, your point person on this Contagious Crusade!
It's James, your point person on this Contagious Crusade!

We're still at the early stages of the post-campaign phase, so lots of things going on in the background, but nothing flashy or too exciting to report. But, it's important that we keep these updates regular so that we're all on the same page and in the loop. We're in the pageloop. That's a word, right?

And, just a reminder to confirm your rewards in your BackerKit survey, if you haven't done so already. After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.

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 

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or contact the team via the Contact Creator link on the kickstarter page and Rich will forward it to me.
