 Onyx Path Publishing Launches Kickstarter for Ghost Hunters, a World of Darkness 20th Anniversary Supplement
Posted: Fri, 09 Oct 18:46:40
Category: Features, ghost stories, onyx path
Rich Thomas, founder and Creative Director of Onyx Path Publishing, announced the launch of a new World of Darkness Anniversary Edition Kickstarter for the deluxe printing of Ghost Hunters. World of Darkness: Ghost Hunters presents paranormal investigation from a mortal's perspective. Chapters cover skeptical ghost hunters, well-organized groups, natural mediums, and their families and the equipment they use to uncover the "truth" that ghosts are real. In the World of Darkness, however, paranormal investigators may unwittingly stumble across any one of its other denizens, putting themselves (and the creatures they encounter) at risk.

 Chronicles of Darkness: The Contagion Chronicle is now available!
Posted: Wed, 23 Sep 18:02:35
Category: Features, modern-horror, onyx path
The world is ill. You have everything to lose through its sickness. Loss. Change. Chaos. Your own blood will rebel against you. Your own herd. Your own loved ones. Do not believe that just because you've had a hundred years on this earth, you'll be exempt. Just because you were ignorant of it until now does not make you immune. Your waking to the reality of this world — of the great machine in its heart, and the sickness in its veins — is just the first step. You must find others like you and me and make them swear to drive back this Contagion. This world doesn’t have long left. You may be a monster, but perhaps with other monsters, you can drive back the destruction of everything.

 Onyx Path continues the 2nd Edition of the Scion RPG with Demigod!
Posted: Fri, 04 Sep 14:47:06
Category: Features, modernfantasy, onyx path
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 in Scion: Demigod.
