10 hour warning: Check your pledges
about 2 years ago – Sat, Oct 22, 2016 at 08:10:26 AM

Hi, Rose here. ^_^

Please take a moment between now and the end of this Kickstarter in about 10 hours to review your pledge. I know it sounds unnecessary because you're on top of it and/or it's annoying to get multiple warning messages, but both of the issues below have happened to backers during one of our other KSs.

1) Did you pledge to the Reward Tier that offers you the rewards you want? Go through the description and make sure the rewards are mentioned there. They are not cumulative with the Reward Tiers before them.

2) Did you make sure that your payment method is valid? Is your credit card maxed out? Kickstarter will mark your pledge non-collectible and you won't get your Rewards. Did you borrow the card and they decided to block the charge because you had a fight? There's a window to resolve payment issues with KS, but there's no guarantee that the resolution will be what you want. Better to make sure your payment method will work now.

That covers the typical trouble spots, and we'll be answering your questions in the comments, or more directly via that "contact me" link next to Rich's picture, for the rest of the KS.

Stretch goal update
about 2 years ago – Sat, Oct 22, 2016 at 02:09:06 AM

Hey, folks. Rose here. ^_^

Y'all just keep knocking these stretch goals down. Check this out:

Achieved

Having passed $290,000, we can add a section featuring some other divine parents and guidance on playing Scions of your parent's different divine mantles, or identities, to the Scion Companion.

Having passed $300,000, we can add a section to the Bestiary on Folk both Strange and Fair, such as the aos sí, the yaksha, the alfar, and the yo-geh-oh. Backers who pledge for any reward tier including physical copies of Scion: Origin or Scion: Hero will receive this as a PDF.

Having passed $305,000, we will add two more stories to the Scion Fiction Anthology, to further detail and enrich your Scion experience. Backers who pledge for any reward tier including PDFs of Scion: Origin or Scion: Hero will receive this PDF/ePub.

Having passed $310,000, we will create a Community Content section on DTRPG.com that will allow folks who adhere to our standards' guide to create and post their own Scion 2e material on a royalty basis. We will also open up Scion 2e to licensed publishing with other companies. Setting up these programs is something we have never done before, so it will take work to figure out the details, but we believe Scion will become all the richer a game line with these programs in place.

Upcoming

At $320,000, we'll add a section to the Scion Bestiary on and discussing Legendary Warriors, such as amazons, berserkers, and maharathis. Will your Scion join their ranks, or will they face these powerful legacies in combat?

At $330,000, we'll include centaurs in the Bestiary, including classic Greek, modern American bikers, and variations like the nucklavee.

Thank you for your support! I can't wait to see how this one finishes!

Therianthropes added to the Bestiary! Up next: Scion app!
about 2 years ago – Fri, Oct 21, 2016 at 02:33:12 PM

Hi, folks. Rose here. ^_^

Thanks to you, we've rocketed through another stretch goal! Having passed $275,000, we can continue the Scion Bestiary with a section on therianthropes (were creatures). Backers who pledge for any reward tier including physical copies of Origin or Hero will receive this as a PDF.

Up next, at $280,00, we'll work with a team of professional game designers out of Seattle to create a Scion app, code-named Blacksheets. As they explain:"Blacksheets is a mobile character management app for the Onyx Path games. Our goal is present as much relevant information about your character and the systems they interact with, in a nice readable way."

We hope to give backers free or discounted copies of the app. This depends on what we can swing -- for example, the Apple App Store presents some difficulties with giving backer-specific discounts. We'll be targeting both the iOS and Android platforms.

To give you an idea of what the app will be like, here are some visuals from the proposed UI.

 

 

 

This is an exciting new area for us to get into!

As always, thank you for your support!

App and Companion section achieved! Up next: Fair Folk!
about 2 years ago – Fri, Oct 21, 2016 at 03:26:15 AM

Hi, folks! Rose here. ^_^

Having passed $280,000, we'll work with a team of professional game designers to create the Blacksheets app! (See last update for details.)

Up next, at $290,000, we'll add a section featuring some other divine parents and guidance on playing Scions of your parent's different divine mantles, or identities, to the Scion Companion. And in honor of how chock full of goodness the Scion Companion is thanks to your support, we will add two extra Reward Tiers: one to get either your character's or your name to the text, and another to be an artist model for an illustration, both for the Companion.

After that, at $300,000, we'll add a section to the Bestiary on Folk both Strange and Fair, such as the aos sí, the yaksha, the alfar, and the yo-geh-oh. Backers who pledge for any reward tier including physical copies of Scion: Origin or Scion: Hero will receive this as a PDF.

And then, at $305,000, we will add two more stories to the Scion Fiction Anthology, to further detail and enrich your Scion experience. Backers who pledge for any reward tier including PDFs of Scion: Origin or Scion: Hero will receive this PDF/ePub.

Thank you for your support!
