Hello Extraordinary Benefactors,

It's the final few days of July, so time for our regular month end update. 

Before we jump into our project status check in, I wanna share another video that came from the 2021 Onyx Path Virtual Gaming Convention. Last month I had an Actual Play video of a Victorian Mage game. This time I've got a Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary panel that covers the entire gameline, talking about what's coming up for the line.

Watch the Onyx Path Virtual Gaming Convention 2021 Mage: The Ascension panel, with panellists Jiba Molei Anderson, Travis Legge, Hiromi Cota, and Ian A. A. Watson! They discuss the existing and upcoming Mage catalogue of games!

Hello Extraordinary Benefactors,

We're sneaking up to the end of June, so I'm going to send out our regular month end communication a little bit early.

As noted last month, we're still in the earliest stages of this campaign, but I do have some fun stuff to share! The 2021 Onyx Path Virtual Gaming Convention took place a few weeks ago, and now you can watch one of the Actual Play sessions that was hosted as part of the event.

Join Storyteller @eldritchechoes along with players @theeldritch_l, @ohhellomere, @changelingever, @mom_sized, and @kemintiri as they play Mage: the Ascension - Victorian Age at Onyx Path Con 2021!

Always fun to see the game we helped fun in action!

Currently Crowdfunding - Final Days

Wed May 26 '21 Announcement
about 1 year ago – Wed, May 26, 2021 at 08:45:33 AM

Hello Extraordinary Benefactors,

We're in the final week of the month, so it's time for our regular month end update. As noted, I'll be sending out a status check in at the end of every month, to ensure everyone's "in the loop" and we're all on the same page.

We're still in the earliest stages of this post-campaign, where projects make incremental movements along the progress path. A lot of months will be pretty similar, just a quick note to let you know that the Onyx Path team is still working on it. Any time we have a new reward or something of interest to share, I'll include that as well.

We've officially passed Victoria Day - the 60th day of our post-campaign, and our extended window to fund those final Stretch Goals. Of course, we'd hit them within the first 30 days, but that extended window allowed us to add just about $20,000 to our total and complete our final reward, while adding just over 80 additional backers to our campaign. Welcome new backers!

ONYX PATH VIRTUAL GAMING CONVENTION

Before I review our reward status, let me announce (or, copy Onyx Path's announcement!) the Second Onyx Path Virtual Gameing Convention will be coming to you live starting Friday, June 11th and running until Sunday, June 13th (including a special post-con Jackbox gamefest Sunday night hosted by Dixie)!

The GM Sign-up Page & Code of Conduct for OPP Con are now live:

Code of Conduct:https://intercom.help/startplayinggames/en/articles/5208570-onyx-path-code-of-conduct

GM Sign-up:https://intercom.help/startplayinggames/en/articles/5217651-onyx-path-virtual-gaming-convention-2021-faq

Here are some listings for their planned panels and Actual Play sessions:

A few things to highlight in there:

There's a Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary panel on Friday, June 11th at 7:00 PM EDT, and a more general World of Darkness panel on Sunday, June 13th at 11:30 AM EDT.

There's also an Actual Play session of Victorian Mage running on Saturday, June 12th at 6:00 PM EDT.

Definitely some interesting things to check out, and a ton of other fun stuff as well.

OK, back to our regular update...

Fri Apr 30 '21 Announcement
over 1 year ago – Fri, Apr 30, 2021 at 11:22:27 AM

Hello Extraordinary Benefactors,

Here we are on the final day of April, so it's time for our regular month end update. As I've mentioned before, I'll be sending out a Status Check-in at the end of every month, just to keep communication constant and consistent and keep everyone on the same page.

We're still in the earliest stages of this post-campaign, where projects make incremental movements along the progress path. A lot of months will be pretty similar, just a quick note to let you know that the Onyx Path team is still working on it. Any time we have a new reward or something of interest to share, I'll include that as well.

PLEDGE MANAGER REMINDER

Most of you have confirmed your rewards, confirmed or added additional Add Ons, and entered your information. No worries on setting shipping info - we'll confirm a bunch by the time we actually approach our shipping schedule, so plenty of time to update as becomes needed. But, it's important to review your pledge and confirm add on rewards.

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://victorian-mage-ttrpg.backerkit.com/

As a reminder, any additional funding that's pledged to BackerKit prior to May 24th 2021, either via pledge adjustments or new pre-orders, will count towards our Stretch Goal funding targets.

If you need a reminder on how to adjust your Perk selection, scroll back to our Update from April 4 to see step-by-step instructions.

Which brings me to the first part of this update! Over the past two days, our total pledge amount has helped us achieve our final target!

ACHIEVED! - At $120,000 in funding – Revolutionary Magick Expanded – More Magick spells will be added to the Weird Wonders & Revolutionary Magick PDF supplement.

That means everyone who's backed to receive the Victorian Mage PDF or deluxe hardcover - either during the IndieGoGo campaign or through our pre-order store (until May 24!) will receive the triply expanded Weird Wonders & Revolutionary Magick PDF supplement as part of your rewards!

Fantastic job, everyone!

DIGITAL REWARD DISTRIBUTION

And another excellent piece of news today! The Onyx Path team was working hard on another M20 project - the pre-release version of Technocracy Reloaded has been released to backers of that campaign, seven months before the projected date.

Which is good news for many Victorian Mage backers, since a pre-order for the Technocracy Reloaded PDF was included in the BackerKit Add On options! Which means I'll be releasing the following reward this weekend:

  • [Add On] M20: Technocracy Reloaded pre-release PDF

Now, let me highlight that bit - this is the pre-release version, not the final release. It's close, but can be made better with your help! Onyx Path wants 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 Technocracy Reloaded Feedback Form!

Onyx Path has launched a special Technocracy Reloaded Feedback Form, which you can access here: https://forms.gle/Bj39dvre68CzRjzD7

This feedback form will be open for the next week to collect all errata and feedback submitted by all of the pre-release recipients. If you've added this title on to your list of rewards in BackerKit, please check through and submit any important feedback over the next week to help make the final release of this book even better.

We'll have a similar process in place when Victorian Mage reaches this stage on the progress path.

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.

Your link to claim this digital reward will be sent out by our BackerKit pledge manager over the weekend. Since we are using our partners at DriveThruRPG as the hosts 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.ph

Again, you will receive an e-mail from BackerKit with a link for this Add On reward over the next 3 days if it was added to your expected list of rewards in BackerKit

The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit accounthttps://victorian-mage-ttrpg.backerkit.com/digital_rewards

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://victorian-mage-ttrpg.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials or alternate means to log in to your Indiegogo 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://victorian-mage-ttrpg.backerkit.com/faq

Ok, now to what will become the regular, ongoing feature of our month end updates - the reward progress check in.
