July 2021 Update
4 months ago – Wed, Jul 28, 2021 at 10:47:40 AM

Hello Hunters,

We're finishing up July, so it's time for our regular month end update. No exciting news - yet - but a familiar refrain: the PDF is *so close* and just finishing up the Proofing stage. It's gone back and forth a few times, and the tweaks and corrections from the second round are now being set up in the file. I can't wait!!!

June 2021 Update
5 months ago – Mon, Jun 21, 2021 at 11:20:39 PM

Hello Hunters,

Oooh, we're getting so close to having the PDF of our book. It's currently in the Proofing stage, and going back and forth between the developers and writers, catching a few final changes and making some finishing tweaks in preparation for it being sent off for Approvals and then distributed to us.

So, not quite yet... but getting closer....closer...closer!

So, instead of waiting until the last minute like I usually do, I'm going to send this update out a bit early and hope we have something exciting to share before too much longer.

Well, that doesn't mean I don't have anything to share. Because it's been just a few weeks since the Onyx Path Virtual Convention for 2021 and the panel for the Chronicles of Darkness line has been uploaded to youtube.

There's bits in there on several games within the Chronicles of Darkness line, and it's all exciting stuff.

In the meantime, keep vigilant and hopefully we'll see a backer PDF of Hunter: The Vigil 2E before too much longer.

April 2021 Update
7 months ago – Wed, Apr 21, 2021 at 09:16:03 PM

Hello Hunters,

I waited to the very end of the month last time, so this time I'm sending it out early. Whenever I wait until the last minute, it's usually because I'm hoping to see if there's any big news shared in Onyx Path's Monday Meeting notes that I can pass on before the end of the month. But everything seems right in the middle of the process over there, so I think I'm fairly up to date this time.

Back to the Vigil...

March 2021 Update

Hunters!

I hope everyone is keeping the vigil and managing as best they can through these challenging times. One thing I've learned over the past while - Hunter fans are dedicated, patient, and always eager for more. I can't wait until we get our PDFs and eventually our hardcover books... but we're still in the middle of the creation process. It's nice to have this to look forward to, a beacon on the horizon.

Anyway, enough wistful dreaming, let's get to it.

JUMP IN IN TO APRIL

Jumpstart Month on Onyx Path's Twitch channel

This April is Jumpstart month for Onyx Path media! They're running one of every Jumpstart they can for their games, introducing them to new players and putting them in the hands of GMs skilled at some games, but new to these ones! They would love it if you checked some of these out, to maybe get acquainted for the first time with some of these Onyx Path games! Check out the schedule and tune in!

For anyone new to Onyx Path's channel, you can find them running and playing games over on twitch.tv/theonyxpath pretty much every day of the week!

So far, the only Chronicles of Darkness representation is on April 4, with the Time is Come Round scenario for the Contagion Chronicle. Since the Contagion Chronicle is a crossover between all Chronicles of Darkness lines, though, maybe that counts as a Hunter: The Vigil game! I'll take what I can get. Check their schedule throughout April to see what other games get added!

Yeah, I know I've used that same gag for other games. But for Hunter, you know I really mean it!

CURRENTLY CROWDFUNDING...

After the explosion of Doctor Sir Calvin Hammersmith’s “telluric engine” early in the 20th century, people the world over begin to demonstrate extraordinary capabilities. Stalwart individuals with the strength to pull a safe from a wall, or the quickness of hand to pluck a bullet from the air. Mesmerists with the ability to cloud mens’ minds or see visions of distant places. Valiant daredevils with unparalleled skill or luck. Collectively called the Inspired, the newly-formed Æon Society for Gentlemen is on a mission to guide the Inspired, catalog telluric phenomena, and shepherd humanity to a better place.

Trinity Continuum: Adventure! is the next edition of the pulp action game Adventure!, originally released in 2001. This new edition features mechanics that are both flexible and fast as well as new Inspired powers. While the setting is quite similar to the original edition’s, it has been newly updated to better fit into the overall Continuum setting and encourage heroic roleplaying.

NOW CROWDFUNDING ON KICKSTARTER! CHECK IT OUT!
