Latest Updates from Our Project:

April 2020 Update
over 1 year ago – Wed, Apr 29, 2020 at 03:20:38 AM

Hello Hunters,

I hope you're all keeping well and holding true to your vigil. As noted last month, I'll be in regular communication - usually around the end of each month - just to update you on the status of our campaign projects and rewards. I want to make sure communication is constant and consistent, and that we're all on the same page with regards to progress and delivery of this Hunter awesomeness.

First, to change into something less comfortable....

Yes, I'm wearing my sunglasses inside. It's part of the look.

JUST LAUNCHED ON KICKSTARTER + FUNDING FAST

Welcome to the Future

As the third decade of the 21st century dawns, the Technocratic Union stands on the cutting edge of a future imperiled. As science and technology draw humanity closer than ever before, certain factions within the Masses display gross negligence, undermining the Union’s work and endangering the world for shortsighted gains. Despite global telecommunications, new frontiers in virtually every field of study, and an understanding of the universe only dreamed of by earlier generations, humanity faces threats on all sides.

Can You Save It?

Climate change threatens to destroy life as we know it. Religious fundamentalism breeds terror around the globe. Diseases, once eradicated in the developed world through vaccination, have returned due to antivaxxer movements. Totalitarian, nationalist governments rise as the Masses succumb to fear of the other. The world stands on the brink of destruction, and it is up to the agents and operatives of the Technocratic Union to save it…or be its ultimate destruction.

Technocracy Reloaded peels back the curtain and examines the role of the Technocracy in Mage 20th Anniversary Edition. The various Future Fates presented in Mage 20 are examined and this book introduces a few of its own. This book provides a detailed look at life within the Technocracy, expanded information on the Conventions, a wealth of equipment, Adjustments, and Procedures, a breakdown of the various shadow conspiracies and factions within the Technocratic Union, and tips for running your own Technocracy Chronicle.

NOW ON KICKSTARTER! CHECK IT OUT!

Reward Delivery: Backer T-shirts Available for a Limited Time!
over 1 year ago – Sat, Apr 25, 2020 at 09:13:23 AM

Hello Hunters,

Even though we're mostly isolated and social-distancing, it's always a good idea to maintain your connection with your cell and your compact. Even when we're not together, we can demonstrate our togetherness - and here's another way!

It's not so much a uniform as a beacon to others and a show of community. Also, it's a T-shirt!

Also, it beats a shirt with my cartoon face on it!

I could use a slight wardrobe change, even if it's just to surprise myself when I pass by a mirror. And, today, I've got a new option!

REWARD DELIVERY: KICKSTARTER T-SHIRT LINK

Click the image to check out the styles!

One of our Stretch Goals during the kickstarter campaign was a special available-for-a-limited-time Kickstarter Backer Hunter: The Vigil Second Edition T-shirt. 

As it says, all backers will be notified when the shirt becomes available. This is that notification - the shirt has become available. For a limited time! It'll be available for one week only.

If you click over to Onyx Path's REDBUBBLE T-shirt Shop you will see the Hunter: The Vigil Kickstarter Backer T-shirt, which will be available at an already-discounted price for a LIMITED TIME ONLY! You have ONE WEEK to order this shirt if you'd like to put off doing laundry for one more day!

And, just like our favorite hunters, these shirts come in different shapes and sizes, so don't forget to scroll through and check out your options!

One last time: This shirt will be available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY - please act quickly if you're interested!

I'll be back next week with our regular month-end status update. Until then, stay safe and take care of yourselves and your cells, compacts, and conspiracies.!

Digital Reward Distribution - Add On Rewards Going Out This Week!
over 1 year ago – Mon, Apr 06, 2020 at 09:13:07 PM

Hello Hunters,

I hope you're all keeping well and staying safe. Keep true to your vigil, keep true to you compact. 

Thanks to everyone who's logged in to BackerKit, reviewed their pledge information, and completed your survey! BackerKit allows us to confirm that we've got everyone's correct list of rewards, gather all information needed to get those rewards to you, and also allow backers to add or confirm new Add On reward items, as well as allowing those fans who missed the campaign to pre-order Hunter: The Vigil Second Edition!

Every day is casual friday now.

DIGITAL REWARD DISTRIBUTION

Many of the rewards for our kickstarter projects take a lot of time and effort to complete. Usually, the kickstarter is a means of moving the project from an idea (even when it's a mostly-fully-written idea) into the actual channel that turns it into a project/product. It'll be a while before we're ready to talk about delivery on Hunter: The Vigil Second Edition, and even longer for our project generated via Stretch Goals (Tending the Flame!).

That said, there are a few rewards that are available now, as they were mostly add-on PDFs of existing products. And now, we can work on getting those out to you during the week.

The following Add On Rewards Will Be Distributed This Week:

  • [ADD ON] Hunter 1E PDF Bundle - Council of Bones' Transcripts 
  • [ADD ON] Hunter 1E PDF Bundle - Malleus Maleficarum's Scrolls 
  • [ADD ON] Hunter 1E PDF Bundle - Records of the Lucifuge 
  • [ADD ON] Hunter 1E PDF Bundle - The Ascending Ones' Archive 
  • [ADD ON] Hunter 1E PDF Bundle - The Cheiron Group's Database 
  • [ADD ON] Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2E PDF
  • [ADD ON] Hurt Locker PDF
  • [ADD ON] Beast: The Primordial PDF
  • [ADD ON] Changeling: The Lost 2E PDF
  • [ADD ON] Chronicles of Darkness 2E Core Rulebook PDF
  • [ADD ON] Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras PDF
  • [ADD ON] Demon: The Descent PDF
  • [ADD ON] Mage: The Awakening 2E PDF
  • [ADD ON] Promethean: The Created 2E PDF
  • [ADD ON] Vampire: The Requiem 2E PDF
  • [ADD ON] Werewolf: The Forsaken 2E PDF

REWARD DISTRIBUTION

Your link to claim these digital rewards will be sent out by our BackerKit pledge manager over the next week. Since we are using our partners at Storytellers Vault and DriveThruRPG as the hosts for these, 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 links for these rewards over the next 5 days if any of them are on your expected list of rewards. I'll be releasing them in waves, so don't panic if you only see a handful of links at first... the rest are coming. (We're in a digital world, but there are still a lot of manual processes. And there are A LOT of links to go out!!)

The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: https://hunter-the-vigil-2e.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected.

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://hunter-the-vigil-2e.backerkit.com 

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter 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://hunter-the-vigil-2e.backerkit.com/faq

TO CONTACT ME

  •  Via E-Mail: Onyx.Kickstarter [at] gmail.com

  •  Via BackerKit: Click "Need Help?" from your page, and then fill in the Contact Us form. BackerKit will pass your message along to me.

You can always leave a comment on the kickstarter - I'll be notified when you do. I'll be in touch again near the end of the month to maintain our regular status reports and check in. Until then, keep safe and take care of yourselves!

March 2020 Update - Surveys are coming!
over 1 year ago – Mon, Mar 30, 2020 at 01:18:31 AM

Hello Hunters!

I haven't shaved in a month. I wish my beard looked this good.

Welcome to our regular month end updates, although there's been nothing "regular" about the past month. Near the end of each month, I will be sending out an update, with status updates on our main project and all of the Stretch Goal projects we added. As noted in previous updates, these projects take a long time to put together. You've seen the manuscript, but there are still many moving pieces and puzzles to solve in turning this into an awesome book. These month-end updates ensure that communication is constant and consistent, and that we're all on the same page with regards to where we stand.

I will also be sending out the BackerKit Pledge Manager surveys this week!

But, before we begin all of that - I hope everyone's keeping safe and managing through this difficult transition as best possible. I don't know how things will look as the world changes, but hoping the best for all of you.

BACKER SURVEYS

Over the next few days, you’ll receive an email from us with a special link to your BackerKit survey. It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we need this information to fulfill your rewards.

You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey. When you receive the email with the survey, click the survey invititation link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences, provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items if you like. You don’t have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email!

After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.

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://hunter-the-vigil-2e.backerkit.com/

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter 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://hunter-the-vigil-2e.backerkit.com/faq

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or message me via one of these methods:

TO CONTACT ME

  •  Via E-Mail: Onyx.Kickstarter [at] gmail.com
  •  Via Kickstarter: Click Onyx Path under the "Created By" heading on the main page, and then press the "Contact Me" button - the message will come to me!
  •  Via BackerKit: Click "Need Help?" from your page, and then fill in the Contact Us form. BackerKit will pass your message along to me.

Within the BackerKit Survey and Pledge Manager, you can:

  • Change your Reward Tier pledge selection
  • Confirm Add On selections
  • Set up payment information for any failed payments from the Kickstarter campaign or to pay for any new Add On options selected

To change your reward Pledge Tier:

This is what BackerKit looks like once you've clicked on the invitation link

From the BackerKit welcome page, in reverse order, you can select Switch Your Pledge Level (lower option) immediately. Or, you can select your Pledge Level (top option) to review your reward tier and change from that screen.

This is the screen that opens if you select the top option, to review your pledge tier information

An option at the top of the Pledge Information screen will allow you to upgrade your Pledge Level.

Once we've got a fair response to our survey and collected a reasonable amount of info, I'll be working on fulfilling rewards that are available now - like the PDFs of the titles included in our Add On section, (The various Chronicles of Darkness titles, and Hunter 1E PDF Bundles, etc.) Expect to receive more info on those within the next week or so.
