You may recall my mention of the one really good cigar I have. Today I’m going to smoke it. We have just announced a deal on our website that took over two years to negotiate and ink. Green Ronin is going to be designing and developing RPGs for Black Industries, the new RPG imprint of BL Publishing (the fiction wing of Games Workshop if you didn’t know). What does this mean? Well, for starters I get to design the new edition of one of my favorite RPGs of all time: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. And that’s just the beginning. There’s so much cool stuff in the works that I’m going to be like a kid in a candy store for the next several years. There’s still much I can’t discuss, but it feels great to have finally announced the deal. It’s been hard as hell to keep things on the QT.
What’s funny is that WFRP is the game that my friends and I graduated to after getting fed up with AD&D.; It’s somehow fitting that Green Ronin is taking on WFRP2 after supporting D&D; for the last four years. Not that we are giving up on d20 (sorry competitors!). Green Ronin will continue to publish books of our own, while also designing and developing books that Black Industries will publish. Best of both worlds really.
Friday promises to be a good day. I do believe I shall enjoy it!
