The PDF for the third promised Convention Book is now on sale:

Advocate to the Masses

Of everyone in the Ascension War — Traditionalists, Nephandi, and even other Technocrats — no one gets humanity quite like the Syndicate. The Convention of Cash doesn’t try to change people, and it doesn’t have the hubris of believing it should make the Masses “better” as its fellow Conventions do. No, the Syndicate knows that the status quo keeps the world safe… and keeps them in the penthouse. The Syndicate distributes money and Primal Energy through the Technocratic Union, and that gives it power over the Union’s policies. But that might not be enough to prevent the New World Order and others from crippling the Masses worse than the Traditions ever could.

A World Occupied

Between the lows — hypereconomics backlash and market crashes — and the highs — crowdfunding and the reputation economy — this is an interesting time to be in the Syndicate. Convention Book: Syndicate updates Mage: the Ascension with fresh 21st century ideas of the Convention everyone loves to despise, in ways that will change how you see them.

The Print and Print + eBook combo will be available soon!

Having the PDF out before these other two options is part of Onyx Path asking for feedback on the PDFs so we can make changes to the book before we commit to print. Please comment right here with anything you might find that slipped through our Dev and Editing process. We appreciate anyone who takes the time to do that, and using your feedback we'll have a physical copy version (and fixed PDFs) available in about a month. Plus, if you buy the PDF now, we'll have a coupon ready from DTRPG for the combo so you won't miss out on the lower combo price. Just be sure that your settings at DTRPG allow them to send you stuff.

Available in digital PDF/ePub, physical PoD book, and combo versions.

We are like you. We live in your cities, we laugh at your jokes, we share your good times and your bad ones. We meet you in clubs and back alleys, at glamorous parties and dive bars. We need you, to sate our endless hunger. We are your Kindred.

They are the smoke and the darkness, things that could have been you or us, creatures of hunger that humanity stole the night from. They are the Strix.

This anthology chronicles our struggle, and unveils the schemes and atrocities of Kindred and Strix alike. It includes these stories as well as other tales of those whom even monsters fear:

- “Four Years, Old John”: Greg Stolze shows us how the two most powerful vampires in Chicago came together in the shadow of the Strix.

- “Second Chance”: Eddy Webb tells a story of trust and betrayal, as a vampire is raised to solve a savage

- “Playing House”: Audrey Whitman reveals that the devil you know and the devil you don’t might be one and the same.

- “Watching”: Orrin Loria introduces us to the Sheriff, who sees everything. But there’s one person even the city’s most well-connected vampire may not suspect.

- “Lullay”: Joshua Alan Doetsch weaves the tale of a surrogate father and his very dangerous little girl. But what happens when a fairy tale beast comes knocking?

The digital edition includes PDF, Kindle (.mobi), and .epub versions of the book.
