Latest Updates from Our Project:

Jan '24 Update - Backer T-Shirt Time!
6 months ago – Tue, Jan 23, 2024 at 10:56:01 AM

Hello Aethernauts,

Welcome to the first update of 2024! I know exactly what you're thinking... let's start off the year with a reward!

Remember this one?

Well, let's get that taken care of right away!

If you want to let the world know you're a Member of the Royal Society of the Fearless Aethernauts and proud to be a supporter for Trinity Continuum: Aether, Check out the design and various shirt options here: Trinity Continuum: Aether Backer Shirt <Link>

 AVAILABLE TO ORDER NOW - FOR A LIMITED TIME

So, this Stretch Goal during the kickstarter campaign was for a special available-for-a-limited-time Kickstarter Backer TC: Aether T-shirt, but really there are more than just T-shirt options there (and more colors as well!)

If you click over to Onyx Path's REDBUBBLE T-shirt Shop using this link <Aether Shirt> you will see the backer shirts, which will be available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY! You have ONE WEEK to order a shirt with this design if you'd like to announce you're a major mouse!

If you scroll down a bit, you'll see other options - including hoodies and other styles - you can change the style, color, and size to make sure it works for you! Changing the style and size may change the cost, so be aware. Make sure you review your selection before you process payment to ensure you've got the correct images, style, color, and size.

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

AND - right now, Redbubble is having a site-wide 25% off sale, so all prices are further discounted! I don't know how long that promotion lasts, though, so act quickly!

Starting the year off by moving a reward from our Pending to Delivered list!

 DRAFT MANUSCRIPT LINK

And speaking of draft mansucripts, I'll be including a link back to the draft manuscripts in these updates because it'll be a while before we get our Backer PDF version and in the meantime I'm sure some will misplace any downloaded copies. I'll keep this bit here in future updates until our backer PDFs go out.

REWARDS STILL PENDING

So our TC: Aether book is now in the earliest layout stages, where the team sees how it all fits together and figures out if more artwork is needed (yes please) or anything needs to be realigned to make it all work. Still some work ahead, but we're getting closer.

REWARDS DISTRIBUTED TO BACKERS

You can find the weekly Monday Meeting blog updates <here>, which note any projects with status changes since the previous Month End summary. The project statuses listed are current as of last Monday, so do check it out each Monday night to see if anything may have progressed!

I will continue to post regular updates every month until the final Stretch Goal reward has gone out. 

ONYX PATH DISCUSSION CHANNELS

If you've got questions about the rules or setting, or just want to discuss this game with other fans (as well as the Onyx Path writers and developers!), you can check out these Onyx Path discussion zones:

TO CONTACT JAMES

  • Via E-Mail: Onyx.Kickstarter [at] gmail.com
  • Via Kickstarter: Click Richard Thomas under the "Created By" heading on the main page, and then press the "Contact Me" button - the message will come to me!

CURRENTLY CROWDFUNDING

We’re all out of the traditionally-printed copies of several of our core rulebooks from previous crowdfunding campaigns. So we’re going back for more!

This should help us fund a new print run for:

  • You, if you back this. Fulfillment, probably later this year. No development needed, just printing.
  • Other campaigns: we like adding core rulebooks as add-ons to other campaigns (we did a bunch of those on this campaign too!), and this helps us keep doing that.
  • Retailers: Put our games in front of other faces at physical game stores!

The books have all received minor edits to fix a few errors we’ve noticed over the years. This Friday's Onyx Pathcast will talk about these books and the possible minor edits that are being worked on. You can check out the campaign for one more week <here>.

December '23 Update
7 months ago – Thu, Dec 14, 2023 at 11:27:41 AM

Hello Aethernauts,

Squeezing in our regular month end update for the holiday season is in full swing. Everything's pretty quiet in December, so no big changes for this month. Hopefully we'll see some fun stuff happening in 2024.

I've got one reward available to backers who added on the Trinity Continuum: Anima PDF during the campaign or in the Pledge Manager. The discounted Print-on-Demand links are now available in your BackerKit Digital Rewards page! Not a major reward, but one more little piece checked off the list.

FINAL HOURS

Never before has Creation known the perils of the Abyssal Exalted. They have emerged from the gloom of the Underworld as champions of death, sworn to the service of the Deathlords and the Neverborn. Each was offered the gift of the Bleak Exaltation at the moment of their own demise, and each chose to willingly become an agent of the apocalypse. Their motivations are as manifold as any others — they may seek destruction or domination, malice or justice, ancient secrets hidden and forbidden or sheer iron-willed survival.

In service to their lieges, these deathknights will grind the Underworld to heel and scour life from the face of Creation. Or…they might break from those oaths and set themselves up as death’s own Lawgivers, ruling empires of the dead as sages, arbiters, and reapers. All that can be known for sure is that with the Abyssal Exalted loosed upon the world, it will never be the same again.

Abyssals: Sworn to the Grave is in it's FINAL HOURS! Join us <here>

CURRENTLY CROWDFUNDING

The World Below is a game of adversity, heroism, terror, and awe. Your characters will overcome or be defeated by terrible beasts, environmental calamities, and Kaos storms ravaging their surroundings and the souls around them. They will chart their journeys, chronicle their tales, and pass their stories down to their descendants, who will in turn become your characters when your old ones perish or retire.

The World Below provides. But you must dig. You must explore. You must map. You must build. You must defend.

The World Below provides, but only to the worthy. 
The unworthy fall, consumed by bugs, lava, acidic fog, the vagaries of Kaos, and the World Below’s convulsing tunnels.

The World Below is your home, your prison, and your alien world containing terrible threats and wondrous discoveries.

The World Below is a complete tabletop roleplaying game, and includes:

  • Numerous playable options, some from the traditional fantasy mold, others unique to the World Below.
  • The complete Storypath Ultra System, allowing you to play this game straight from the book.
  • A myriad of settings, monsters, powers, and abilities for use in your stories, which you can play as minimalist dungeon crawls or World Below-spanning expeditions.

Come Join Us in The World Below!

September '23 Monthly Check In
10 months ago – Wed, Sep 20, 2023 at 10:11:26 AM

Hello Aethernauts,

There's no big news to share this month, so I'm able to come to you a week early because this update is going to look a lot like last month. It probably seems wasteful or foolish to send an update when there's nothing to really update, but I want to make sure that communication is constant and consistent, even when it's boring like this.

I will note that I'm just about to get the BackerKit pre-order pages for Trinity Continuum: Aegis up and running, so if you missed out on that campaign, you may want to check it out.

Trinity Continuum: Aegis pre-order page on BackerKit now open

Right now, you can pre-order the PDF or the Hardcover+PDF combo. If you do, you'll have access to the Aegis draft manuscript so you'll be able to read the book while it gets worked on by the Onyx Path team. I haven't *quite* got the manuscript deliveries set up yet, that's about a week away. So, if you're thinking about it. you can wait a week or pre-order now and you'll get an email when it's ready for you.

DRAFT MANUSCRIPT LINK

And speaking of draft mansucripts, I'll be including a link back to the draft manuscripts in these updates because it'll be a while before we get our Backer PDF version and in the meantime I'm sure some will misplace any downloaded copies. I'll keep this bit here in future updates until our backer PDFs go out.
