Add Title Here [Monday Meeting Notes]

I didn’t forget the title – that’s a joke as we’re in the week before we start a Kickstarter, see below, and that gives me a little time to touch on topics other than letting folks know about whichever KS we’re running and how cool it is. And really, they are all cool for different reasons otherwise we wouldn’t be running their Kickstarter, right?

With that in mind, I’m going to look at something that a bunch of folks have touched on in the comments sections of our social media, this blog, for our KSs, and with our recent Survey. What it boils down to is that some of our community are concerned when projects other than for their favorite game lines move faster through the creation process and out into stores and/or DTRPG.

There’s a lot of ways this concern is expressed, and I’m going to try and cover them as best I can. Before I do, though, let me lay in the groundwork for how we do what we do.

First, we publish a bunch of game lines, as you know. Some we own, like the Storypath games ala Scion, for others we have a license to publish from another company, like WoD, CofD, and Exalted, all licensed from Paradox, and for a couple of game lines we have a different sort of license that’s more of a partnership, like with Pugmire.

Next, each game line has an in-house developer who works with out-of-house developers, who hire the freelance writers who provide the text for the project. The devs make sure all that text makes sense when it is all combined into the book. Some writers write for multiple game lines, some devs also do writing for other devs, but generally any given project is unlikely to have the exact same creators as another, particularly if being written at the same time.

Most of our creators are not full-time freelancers; most have “real” jobs and do the writing for us when their day job allows. Equally often, if a creator is working full-time as a freelancer in TTRPGs, it is because they have a relationship with someone who is the main wage-earner in their household. There are a lot of reasons why we say that people work in TTRPGs because they love creating TTRPGs, not for fame or fortune.

The reason we have the in-house is primarily so somebody is pulling together the efforts of all these teams of creators and to a large degree that all comes down to scheduling who can work when, how is that work coming, and whether it will hit the deadline. If it’s going to miss the deadline, then by how much and is there flexibility enough that that lateness won’t wreck the project?

Remember, there are other stages after the writing is done that have the same challenges – editing, art direction, layout, proofing. If the writing runs late, when will the art director get art notes? Are the artists who were open to accept new work two weeks ago still open?

What if the notes were supposed to be in two months ago? Those artists need to take freelance gigs pretty much constantly, so our Art Directors are constantly juggling the need to get the best, most appropriate, artists for a project with which artists are actually available at the point they can be hired.

Like I said, same sort of challenges all through the process.

So, with all that background, let’s look at some of the concerns.

http://theonyxpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/MelissaUran_ScionDragon.jpg
Scion: Dragon art by Melissa Uran

Question: Why is Project A sitting at one stage or advancing really slowly, while Project B advances from stage to stage every week? Is it because it’s an Onyx Path owned game line and you’re pushing your own and not my fave?

Answer: Well, only sort of. Obviously we would like the lines we own to do really well, but for us to deliberately hold back books that have large followings would mean that we are throwing away the whole reason to license a property in this first place. As fans, we want to do great work with that license, and as a business, we want to make great money because of the license’s existing fans. Neither of those things is happening if we deliberately hold a project back.

Rather, if you go back to the background and the tetris game of trying to piece together all the schedules, we have more flexibility with one of our own game lines because we only have ourselves to satisfy. The decisions are all internal. The bigger the company we license from, the more people outside of Onyx Path need to sign off on approval stages, the more brand decisions are out of our hands, and the longer each stage is likely to take. This is the nature of licenses, and we know that going in.

(We DO have our own internal approvals, and sometimes they too take more time than we’d like. For sure.)

So what happens is that we are able to plan out the stages of our own projects with far more accuracy in terms of timing, and with the flexibility we have because of fewer external factors weighing in, we can move our own projects to take advantage of when a writer, or dev, or artist, etc. are open right now and get that stage of the project finished up.

Question: Why is Project A sitting at one stage or advancing really slowly, while Project B advances from stage to stage every week? Is it because somebody “in-the-know” unfairly pushes Project B through?

Answer: Absolutely not. No individual is going to “grease the wheels”, but as a group we may all put extra focus on a given project. All of our in-house team are well aware of which projects need pushing, and very often you can see that concerted effort as a long-delayed project starts moving because we discussed just what to do during the Monday Meeting.

Whether someone sees that effort as unfair is a personal thing, but rest assured that no one person can play the system to advance projects. Except in one way.

One creator can advance their project if they can coordinate with that project’s other creators to deliver their work as originally scheduled, or even early. (Be still my heart!) Can they guarantee the art notes to the AD in time for the art to be ready when the text is done in editing? Can they burn through the proofing process so that we can get the Advance or Backer PDF out to you folks faster – without sacrificing quality? It’s a tall order with all the moving parts I mentioned, but it can be done, and has.

And so, that’s another reason why you might see a project move forward quickly – some people hitting on all cylinders. Which was a tough one to pull off with everything hammering all of us in 2020!

Question: Why is Project A sitting at one stage or advancing really slowly, while Project B advances from stage to stage every week? Is it because Onyx Path hates Project A’s game line for some reason?

Answer: No. As an organization, we can’t agree on almost anything. Which means that corporate “group-think” is really unlikely when we consider our options. (Our team speaks their minds – no matter how much I tell them not to!) So, all of us hating any of our games is just not possible. Every game line has champions in our in-house crew, and certainly among our many, many freelancers.

Thanks for letting me ramble on here with what I hope is a useful look behind the scenes of how we do our thing. Here now, the rest of the news:

What Else Was Discussed at the Meeting Today?

Thanks so much for your support of the Jacky Cassada and Nicky Rea fundraiser Bundle of Holding to help Nicky pay the hospital costs and to cover their debts from Covid! So far, we’ve raised over $33,000 and we still have 13 days to go! Please do check it out here: https://bundleofholding.com/presents/Jackie

We are finalizing plans for our first Kickstarter in 2021, which is the dual KS for two fantastic ways to expand your Scion game: Scion: Dragon and Scion: Masks of the Mythos. We’ve scheduled it for 2pm on Tuesday the 19th! Hope to see you there!

We’ll be putting the PDF and the PoD versions of V5 Cults of the Blood Gods up for sale on DTRPG this Wednesday! Now this PoD was not something we were able to include as part of its Kickstarter, which has some connection to the licensed projects thoughts I mentioned above, so we’re excited to make this version available to everyone.

In fact, we will be sending a coupon for a discounted version of the PoD to our V5 Cults of the Blood Gods KS backers as a thank you for their support. Of course, the PDF or PoD versions aren’t the real goal of the Cults KS, which was a traditionally printed book version that we’ll also put into stores as we did with V5 Chicago By Night. That traditionally printed book is still coming folks – this PoD version does not replace it!

We set the date for the 2021 Onyx Path Summit for the first week in February – which, of course, we’ll be attending virtually. So, that’ll be new for all of us. We’ve always used the Summit to get together in-person once a year, but that’s just not happening this year so we’re going to make do as best we can.

Finally, we’ve finalized plans for a new series of monthly releases that are pretty different than our previous ones for Exalted 3rd or for Scarred Lands. Each month of this year on the last Wednesday, we’ll be presenting what we’re calling Storypath Tasty Bits!

These are smaller PDF offerings for all of our Storypath game lines that will be items that we think will add to your enjoyment of those lines, but which we can’t build up into full-sized projects.

There are literally dozens of these that have kind of nagged at us over the years, over all of our game lines: characters and their stats, small adventures that spun out of the work on larger projects, or even ideas inspired by a piece of art in a book that we never went further with as that book was already jam-packed with the things it needed.

The Storypath Tasty Bits are really going to be all a total variety of which games, what sort of subject matters they’ll cover, and length of the release. The only standard things about them will be that they’ll be offered on that last Wednesday of the month – and that they’ll be amazing! If you have questions about or ideas for the Bits, please do throw them at me in the Comments section here – we’d love to hear from you!

That’s it for this week! Thanks for reading and for enjoying our:

Many Worlds, One Path!

Scars of the Divine War, which ended less than 200 years ago, have still not healed. One such scar is the Chasm of Flies, a rent in the earth created when the titan Spiragos the Ambusher was smote down by one of the young gods, Vangal the Ravager. Now, the Chasm is inhabited by spider-eye goblins and their spider allies, but it is also thought to be the resting place of powerful artifacts from that elder age.

This Wednesday we rip aside the crypt door to reveal the PDF and PoD versions of V5 Cults of the Blood Gods on DTRPG!

Cults of the Blood Gods includes:

  • An in-character breakdown of the rise of esoteric beliefs among the ranks of the undead and how faith drives many of the major aspects of vampire culture.
  • A host of religions — from historic theocracies and globe-spanning conspiracies to fringe cults and mortal beliefs arising in the modern nights — introduced for incorporation into your character backgrounds or as supporting casts and antagonist groups in your chronicles.
  • The history, structure, and ambitions of the Hecata, the vampire group known as the Clan of Death, as well as a chapter dedicated to playing a vampire among the Necromancers, and the rituals for their signature Discipline: Oblivion.
  • Guidance on how to use ecclesiastical horror and construct cults in Vampire, making them a vivid backdrop for your own stories, including new coterie styles focused on cult play.
  • Faith-based story hooks and a full chronicle centered on the activities of the Hecata, involving walking corpses, ghosts, ready-made characters, and the secrets of the most twisted family in the World of Darkness.
  • New Loresheets, Backgrounds, and Predator types for inclusion in your chronicles, encouraging player characters to engage fully with the material presented in this book. 

Conventions!

Though dates for physical conventions are subject to change due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, here’s what’s left of our current list of upcoming conventions (and really, we’re just waiting for this last one to be cancelled even though it’s Nov/Dec).
