Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition

Created by Richard Thomas / Onyx Path Publishing

Originally released in 2009, Geist: The Sin-Eaters was a sleeper hit for the Chronicles of Darkness, finally bringing “life” to the realm of ghosts and death. And now this game of second chances gets a second edition, with Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition, offering a revised and updated rules system and an expanded setting.

September 2019 Update

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

We're just sliding in to the end of September, and you know what that means?!

The count down to Hallowe'en starts!

What? No, you're getting off topic!

No, that's not it at all! I mean, it's time for our regular month end status report! These may not always contain exciting news, but I want to ensure that you're on top of this project and we're all on the same page as to where we stand. But, a quick link before we get started ...

I'll post our list of delivered and pending rewards with each monthly update, so that we can track everything that's needed and keep on the same page. Also, feel free to check out Onyx Path's Monday Meeting Notes posts that I mentioned (linked here) which will give you a weekly status report on ALL of the projects Onyx Path has on the go (you may see spoilers for my monthly updates, or see what other kickstarter campaigns are currently running or about to launch).

The latest game to be added to the Chronicles of Darkness...

You woke up… different. Someone changed you: on a slab, an operating table, an altar. By luck or by fate, you escaped. Hunted by your creators, they hold all the cards, and it seems they might recapture you. Except, what they don’t understand is they’ve stoked the fires of vengeance; what they did wasn’t right. What they don’t know is that now — you’re hunting them.

Deviant: The Renegades presents a game where the victims of experiments band together to bring down the monolithic organizations that twisted and warped them. Now funding Kickstarter from Onyx Path - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/deviant-the-renegades-a-tabletop-roleplaying-game

Also: More Monsters for 5th Edition Fantasy Gaming...

Onyx Path has teamed up with Handiwork Games to update and expand the legendary Creature Collection for their Scarred Lands 5th Edition setting! Right now, gangs of monsters are battling each other to see who gets to be included in the book! Join in and root for your favorites!

August 2019 Update
about 2 months ago – Fri, Aug 30, 2019 at 01:34:17 AM

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

No new rewards being sent out with this update, but incremental progress on all projects, a few of which have actually moved to the next stage of the development track. Also, a new entry in the Chronicles of Darkness coming soon...

Let's jump right in!

Project Status

The latest status on Geist-related projects, taken from the latest Onyx Path Monday Notes blog:

Second Draft:
- Geist Jumpstart & Ready-Made Characters (One Foot in the Grave)

Post-Approval Development:
- Geist 2e Fiction Anthology

Post-Editing Development: 
- Memento Mori: the GtSE 2e Companion

Indexing:
 - Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2E Backer PDF

Some good movement on One Foot in the Grave (the RMC & Jumpstart combo), and the Fiction anthology. I know the indexing for the final book has progressed - all of the Page XXs have been updated and now it's a matter of making sure the index refers to the correct final page. Ever forward!

Gen Con 2019 Note
3 months ago – Thu, Jul 11, 2019 at 03:45:12 PM

Hello Kickstarter Krewe,

 Just wanted to throw a quick update out to let you know about Onyx Path and Gen Con 2019. 

It's Gen Con James, now with 20 character sheets
It's Gen Con James, now with 20 character sheets

As you may have read in Onyx Path's recent Monday Meeting Notes blog, they won't have a booth in the Exhibit Hall this year. But that doesn't mean that Onyx Path won't be at the convention, or that you won't be able to pick up copies of your favorite games.

Instead, Onyx Path will be running seminars and game sessions, and leave the Exhibit Hall business to their sales partners - Studio 2 Publishing and Indie Press Revolution (IPR).

The Onyx Path team (Rich, Matt, Eddy, whoever else shows up...) will mostly be participating in the following panels during the convention: 

  • Thursday 3pm – What’s Up With Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich Thomas version)
  • Friday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Community Content? panel
  • Friday 3pm – Freelancing with Onyx Path Publishing? panel
  • Saturday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich-less version)

In addition, there are some programmed game sessions in the Event Guide.

While most of the games are currently marked as sold out this close to the convention, it's always a good idea to double-check if you're really interested. There are sometimes drop outs if people aren't feeling well or are unable to show, and a handful of generic tickets can maybe get you slotted into a vacated chair.

Of course, there will likely be a ton of pick-up and casual games over the Best Four Days in Gaming, so keep your eyes open for anyone wearing a cool T-shirt! I'll be dressed just like my avatar (although it's a few years old now, so imagine with more white in the beard!) so feel free to say hello if you see me!

I'll be back with our regular month end update in 2 weeks!
