  1. Good morning (well it is for me anyway) . Tonight our lucky lottery winner Liliana Valentine will be on my live stream creating her character using the Assembly Line Tarot from Into the Steam Sourcebook. We will go live Monday May 10th (tonight) at 8PM EST. Also I will be pushing out a number of short (10-15 minute) TtB 101 type streams this month in an effort to reach the next level in Twitch streaming so I can re-upload and make permanent the livestream with Kimberly Cooper that I didn't realize you had to check something to make that stay in my video channel. *WHEW* I can use all the viewers I can get. So please share and join us on Twitch for as many episodes as you can this month. Even if it is just having it on in the background, it will really help. TWITCH https://www.twitch.tv/ShadowOpalStreamingStuff If you miss the streams or don't have twitch, you can find them at my Facebook and YouTube channels below as well as Twitch shortly after the livestream ends.

  4. There are a few spread through the sourcebooks. I will need to look.
  5. It does not spend the suit. You can get suits added to skills via talents. Or you need to flip/cheat a card with the suit required.

  7. Congrats to our lucky lottery winner Liliana Valentine! Liliana and I will discuss when is convenient to create a character for Through the Breach using the Assembly Line Tarot found in the Into the Steam Sourcebook. I will post a link to the livestream channels once we have a date and time selected. For those who didn't get lottery picked, we still have Waterways, Lifeline and Crossroads to go. Keep watching for the next round.
  8. There is a Facebook fan group where a number of content creators post including myself. I try to remember to post here as well. But I am just starting out. I will be doing videos on character creation formats, source book walk thrus and short learning videos initially. Eventually I will also be doing an online campaign. Here is a link to the Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1397487777140304/?ref=share
  9. Howdy folks! So y'all have spoken and picked the Assembly Line Tarot to be the next ShadowopalStreamingStuff Character Creation Livestream session. Now we just need a test subject to undergo modification. Nothing serious just replacement of a few limbs. This will be done as always, post "I wanna be modified" below and I will enter your name in the lottery. Previous lottery winners will not be entered so as to give everyone a fair shake. Entry period will end Monday April 12 at midnight CST. Winner will set up a convinient time for them with me to get on Skype and create a character using the Assembly Line Tarot within the next month. Once all the Tarot have been filmed, the winners will also be invited to participate in an online campaign to see how their characters hold up.
  10. Short answer: there isn't a collected organized timeline in the wild that I have found. Long answer: a few people have started collecting various forms of data and organizing it. I have been (very slowly) inputting every book Wyrd has published into my campaign for Realm Works. Once that is completed, I may be able to put that kind of a timeline together. But it won't be any time soon.
  11. We have a winner for the next ShadowopalStreamingStuff Ram's Head Tarot Character Creation Live Stream, lucky lottery winner Peter Walford! Peter is free to sit down virtually with me: Thursday March 25, 2021 at 6pm CST (11pm GMT for poor Peter). So come join us at any of the venues below and see what makes the Ram's Head Tarot the choice of Sanctioned Psychers everywhere.

  12. Has anyone found a good resource for getting the new character boards printed?
  13. The people have spoken.....well 23 of them have anyway....and have chosen the next Character Creation Live stream Tarot to be used. With 8 votes, Ram's Head Tarot is the winner. Now we need a player to go through creating a character using the Ram's Head Tarot on a livestream. I will work with the winner's schedule to set up the livestream like I did for Kimberly using the Bloodline Tarot. If you would like to create a character with me, comment below with "Lottery me" and I will enter you into the lottery which will happen Saturday 3/20/21 after 8pm CST.
  14. So, life and technical issues were the theme of my Shadowopal Streaming Stuff From Nightmares Q&A with Matt. Unfortunately, that meant Kimberly Cooper and I were unable to do her Character Creation session. But fear not, tonight at 7pm CST we shall try again. You can view it live or shortly after at any of the following venues: Twitch https://www.twitch.tv/ShadowOpalStreamingStuff YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0ZJCKSb3zFoqqV9omp3Qlw Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ShadowopalStreamingStuff/
  15. Just A Bit of Consciousness is a talent that the Headliners created by the Puppeteer Advanced pursuit found in From Nightmares receive upon creation The other 2 Matt reminded me are found on the Marionettes in the Core Rulebook.
  16. We have a winner! Congrats to Kimberly Cooper the lottery winner for the From Nightmares Character Creation livestream session!

  17. Howdy folks. I will be hosting a livestream with Matt and the moderators of the Through the Breach Online Roleplaying Fan Group on Facebook. Wyrd was nice enough to give me a pre-release copy of the book PDF so I can have some juicy questions for Matt on his Design process and such. But, if you have any questions, post below or join us live on Friday February 26th, 2021 at 8PM EST on any of these platforms: Twitch https://www.twitch.tv/ShadowOpalStreamingStuff YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0ZJCKSb3zFoqqV9omp3Qlw Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ShadowopalStreamingStuff/ Also, our lucky lottery winner, Kimberly Cooper will create a character live on the stream using the new Bloodline Tarot. This will be the second stream of my new channel. I am new to streaming. But am learning quickly. I will be creating content to help introduce folks to Through the Breach as well as a live stream game down the road. So, if that sounds interesting, click like and follow me on any of the above.
  18. Feel free. I think I may have stolen it.
  19. Yep. I've used that theme for a few groups. They board the train earthside in Breach town (Santa Fe). Excitement and wariness in equal doses is instilled. Malifaux has the potential for big reward. But also lots of danger. I talk about how passing through the breach has had strange effects on people. Some see things in the swirling energies. Some go unconscious. Some are physically transformed. I also build up the guild presence with guards on the train watching for Arcanist neredowells. Once the train enters the Breach, that gives me a chance to tie the party together if they don't already know each other in-game. The party members are pitched into darkness. Everything goes quiet. No movement. In the distance each party member sees a faint glow. They realize they are standing and not sitting in seats. They are drawn to the glow. They come upon a table with a shape seated in front of a deck of cards. The shape speaks it has the voice of an aged woman. She beckons them to sit and she will read their fates. Chairs appear around the table. Just enough for the party to sit. The party member may recognize the others at the table as passengers on the train depending on how aware they were when boarding even though they are seated in separate cars of the train. If I haven't done character creation with them, I use this opportunity to do so. If we have, then the crone flips the cards from their Fate draw and reads their Fate to them. As she does so, a feeling passes through each member like this Fate is a memory they have not yet lived through. The crone looks deeply into the eyes of each member and instills in them that their fates are intertwined and they will find each others' presence beneficial in their travels through Malifaux. With those parting words, the world snaps back into light and motion as the train clears the Breach. If they look around they may or may not see the others. But as they exit the train they instantly recognize each other. I have sometimes thrown a Neverborn ambush or an escape from the prisoner car of the train if the player seem to be the kind of party that wants a little combat straight away or I want to build the factions in early. But yeah starting on the train ride opens a lot of possibility for world building. There can be Guild propoganda brochures on the train against the resserectionists/arcanists/ten Thunders. Conversations can be overheard discussing the threat of gremlins and Neverborn. Rumors of the explorers society recruiting. All of this can be used to steer the party or just add general doubt about all the factions depending on how intrigue of a campaign you want to run.
  20. I get it. Just dropping my pre-emptive 2 scheckles in.
