Latest Updates from Our Project:

PDF Reference Tools Complete
7 days ago – Tue, Jun 12, 2018 at 03:06:29 PM

Beloved cabal,

Summer is here and the UA3 stretch goals are almost done. As Kira Magrann's Sacred Pharma starts layout (delivery expected next week to all backers) the PDF Reference Tools PDF is complete! It's going straight out to BackerKit today.

So what is this thing?

Since the KS campaign the purpose of this PDF has evolved somewhat to the point that it now incorporates three useful things:

  • Complete, exhaustive master index of all five books
  • Updated and revised GM screen reference charts
  • Form-fillable blank character sheets for avatars, adepts, and supernaturals/mundanes

Now, the one thing to be aware of is that the index refers to the printed books, except for Book Four and Five, which are to the PDFs. The page numbers on the PDFs of the core three don't always line up, but it shouldn't be too far off. We wrestled with how to do that but figured it'd be much easier to go with the print numbers than confuse the issue with listing both. Let us know what you think in the comments!

Stretch Goal Home Stretch
29 days ago – Mon, May 21, 2018 at 03:55:12 PM

Beloved cabal,

The CSK releases now number a grand total of six with last week's launch to backers on BackerKit of Karmic Ties and Fifth Wheels, Monica Valentinelli's foray into Wisconsin family reunions. Here's a summary of what's been released so far:

  • Raiders of the Lost Mart by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan (updated and corrected version)
  • The Young Practicals by WJ MacGuffin (updated and corrected version)
  • Violence Inherent in the System by Rabbit Stoddard (new!)
  • Heroin Highway by Chris Lites (updated and corrected)
  • Derby Girls Destroy DC by Filamena Young (new!)
  • Karmic Ties and Fifth Wheels by Monica Valentinelli (new!)

That just leaves Sacred Pharma by Kira Magrann, which is still in development, and the PDF Reference Tools, which is being assembled this week.


There was another goal we set for ourselves during the UA3 campaign and that was to get instructional videos out to you. I'm thrilled to say that through the video editing skills of Renee Knipe and the potent GM presence of UA3 creator Greg Stolze, these videos are now available.

You can see the character creation video here and the actual play video here.

Cheers, chargers!

Two New Campaign Starter Kits!
about 2 months ago – Mon, Apr 30, 2018 at 07:59:06 PM

Beloved cabal,

By now, those of you who had signed up to receive Campaign Starter Kits from the UA3 project should have been sent links to grab the following:

  • Raiders of the Lost Mart by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan (updated and corrected version)
  • The Young Practicals by WJ MacGuffin (updated and corrected version)
  • Violence Inherent in the System by Rabbit Stoddard (new!)
  • Heroin Highway by Chris Lites (new!)

Here's the status of the remaining three CSKs.

  • Derby Girls Destroy DC by Filamena Young is in proofing after final layouts.
  • Karmic Ties and Fifth Wheels by Monica Valentinelli is about to go into layout.
  • Sacred Pharma by Kira Magrann is undergoing development pending edits.

The PDF Reference Tools are in the works. Mostly, these consist of a huge master index that links all five books together as well as including sub-lists that summarize things like all the spells in alpha order, all the magick traditions for adepts, all the weird drugs, all the GMCs, and so forth. The Tools is also going to feature added resources like charts, ref tables, and so forth. That's going to be the last thing in the queue.

We hope that once this all wraps up you will join us for the OVER THE EDGE third edition Kickstarter. For an email when that goes live, please visit the sign-up page:

Until then, peace out, fellow travelers.

Unknown Armies 2 Bundle of Holding!
3 months ago – Thu, Mar 08, 2018 at 02:16:41 PM

Beloved cabal,

Maybe you never added the Crazy Packs of UA PDFs during the campaign. Maybe you thought about it but never did. Maybe you were going to wait until the BackerKit happened, and then that happened, and the world shifted around you and you just couldn't do it.

Well, folks. We wouldn't want you to go without another opportunity.

The Bundle of Holding - long known for its rigorously discounted collections of digital RPG products - is once again shining a light on Unknown Armies 2nd edition. If you wanted to snag these, now is your chance. Or tell your friends! 

Peace,Cam and the Unknown Armies production team
