On Wednesday, February 4th Onyx Path Publishing will be hosting a Twitter chat for fans to discuss the World of Darkness: Dark Eras supplement that is currently funding at Kickstarter.com.
Starting at 8:00 p.m. EST, tune in to the #DarkEras hashtag and connect with the writers and developers who worked on this book. You can either follow the hashtag or stay up to date through the Onyx Path Twitter account at @theonyxpath.
Onyx Path is taking questions ahead of the chat, too. If you would like to be part of this discussion, visit Rich’s Darkness, Now with More Eras post and add your thoughts about this supplement and the Dark Eras Kickstarter in the comments!
Popping in with a short note to say: “Thank you new World of Darkness fans!” In one day, the Dark Eras Kickstarter for a prestige edition of this book has been fully funded.
Now onto the stretch goals! We really appreciate your enthusiasm for the project, and I’m looking forward to what happens next. There’s a lot of great stuff crammed into each chapter for this book already–it’s going to be be-yoo-ti-ful!
Today, I am pleased to announce that my work is featured in a role-playing game supplement for Onyx Path Publishing. The book, which has been put together by senior developer Matt McFarland, is called Dark Eras. The full, unedited text for this book is available on the Kickstarter page. The Dark Eras Kickstarter is for a prestige edition of the book for fans and retailers. Stretch goals will include fan-voted new material; if we get to that point and you like Hunter, don’t forget to vote!
Here’s what the Dark Eras Kickstarter describes this book as:
Dark Eras starts out presenting a chapter for each of nine historical eras; one for each of the New World of Darkness game lines. The sections are written for the currently available edition of the game line, but they are designed to be usable with any edition.
Hunter: the Vigil — Doubting Souls (1690-1695): Immigrants and tribes struggle to co-exist on the eastern seaboard in the ever-expanding North American Colonies. Violent clashes, supernatural beliefs, and demonic influences spell disaster for Salem Village and its surrounding towns, while other Hunters fight werewolves and vampires on the frontier. With so much at risk, only god-fearing men and women are deemed innocent — and those are few indeed. Monica Valentinelli writer & Matt McElroy developer.
I was going to dive into a long design essay about the project, but to be perfectly honest I have no idea where to begin talking about our work. The text is fully available so you can read it for yourself and, like always, we took our inspiration from other Hunter supplements, like our expansion of the Scarlet Watch and ties to the Knights of Saint George. So instead, I turn to you. Ask your questions in the comments below, and I’ll do my best to answer them!

We all appreciate your feedback, comments, and kudos! Speaking of which, thanks to Megan for reviewing my Episode Friends in Low Places. She sums up her review by saying: “If quite intricate plots, villains to foil, choices to make and a few good brawls make a good game for you, this is one to take a look at.” Thanks!
Thank you for playing the game! Hope you enjoy this latest release for the Firefly RPG line. Shiny!
