I won't be in town for the new year, thought I would drop by and say to everyone how happy I am to have this site still going, this place means a lot to me, even if I don't hang around as much as I used to, in any case, I wish everyone a happy new year, that 2010 comes with good news for both Midnight and us all.
So, the new vibe seems to be googlewave, lots of blogs speaking of it, many people wanting to see how it works, and many of the rpg community seem to be seeking to use it to play some game.
Things is I have quite a few invites on my googlewave account right now and want to share at least 5 of those with members of the AtS community, since I haven't been around that much to throw them at people whoa have been storming the site with good stuff, I am thinking about the following lines:
Post a new piece of coolness related to Midnight on this thread, it can be a new nexus, city, faction, NPC, adventure hook, for those who like crunch, I am going to have to say that a well developed covenant item story counts more than the actual powers, same goes for an NPCs backstory or a monster description/backstory.
If you don't want to add that kind of awesomeness you can instead propose a new Midnight game to be played through wave. Post a little campaign brief, present your idea and try to entice others, to be able to run against the other stuff I require at least 3 players to sign to your game in this thread, as an end result both you and those 3 players might get an invite if you are chosen.
The only restriction to the games is that anyone from AtS that wants to follow it must be invited to the In Character thread, myself included.
Drivethrurpg once again has the Midnight books PDFs available for purchase, the prices are really lower now, there are some additions: Fury of Shadow, Destiny and Shadow and Honor and Shadow are available there right now. And finally some are missing: Against the Shadow and Midnight 1st Edition Corebook.
Additionally Dawnforge, Fireborn and Dargonstar are there as well.
There is also one teaser in their newsletter saying
And keep an eye out for even more surprises from the FFG house, including some of the most hotly awaited PDFs in years!
What would that PDF be? And what are the other surprises? Rumormill is now open!
First and most importantly: I'm not naming names or giving any more specific information, but the Midnight RPG is not dead.
Secondly, I picked up the Midnight Chronicles DVD. AFAIK it has all the items DTRPG has, but I'll list what the case says is here:
DVD - Featurette: From Game to Film: The Making of Midnight Chronicles - Visual Effects Breakdown - Deleted Scenes
DVD-ROM - PDF of the final shooting script - PDF of the complete Midnight 2nd Edition roleplaying game core book - An exclusive roleplaying adventure module for use with the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, set in the locales of the Midnight Chronicles.
"The Midnight Chronicles adventure module is intended for use with the 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying Game and requires the use of the D&D Player's Handbook, Monster Manual, Dungeon Master's Guide, Player's Handbook 2, and Adventurer's Vault core rulebooks, available from Wizards of the Coast, LLC."
Both I and FFG will be here for another two days, so if there's anything you'd like me to check out please ask.
