We now know what Green Ronin has planned for 2016.

Here is a quick run down.

We will start with Fantasy Age

Fantasy AGE has been a huge hit for us. It’s already in its second printing and we’ll need to do another later this year. Our first bit of support for Fantasy AGE is the Game Master’s Kit, which consists of a hardback screen, four reference cards, and a combat tracker you can write on with wet or dry erase markers. This is printed already (I got an advanced copy just before Xmas and it looks great) and the main shipment is on a boat. Expect it in February.

But wait! There is more as they say

Following that will be the Fantasy AGE Bestiary, which is scheduled for a spring release. The monsters in the Basic Rulebook are enough to get you started but Game Masters need options. That’s what this book is all about. After that we’ve got the Fantasy AGE Companion, the first rules expansion for the game. It will offer a lot of new options for both players and GMs: new specializations, talents, spells, magic items, and more. I may even add a fourth class if I’m feeling crazy! The Fantasy AGE Companion is currently scheduled for a summer release. In addition to physical books, we’ll also be starting a Fantasy AGE PDF series. It will feature short, ready-to-use encounters that Game Masters can use as-is or build out into longer adventures.

 

And now we move to Titansgrave

 We are putting together a proper Titansgrave world book (exact title TBA) that will provide a lot more detail about the locations on that snazzy map. Meanwhile, we’re moving into production on Season 2 of the show this month. Once that airs (dates to be announced by Geek & Sundry), we will release a second adventure book similar in format to the first one

 

Dragon Age is still getting some love as well

With the release of the Dragon Age Core Rulebook a few months ago, the full game rules are under one cover for the first time. It sold out its first print run as well, and we have a second one underway. In the meantime, we are finishing up the Revised Edition of the Dragon Age Gamemaster’s Kit. This is a new version of the original that features a brand new adventure, four reference cards, and a combat tracker similar to the Fantasy AGE version. That should be out this spring.

 

Mutants & Masterminds anyone?

We’re kicking off the year with The Cosmic Handbook for Mutants & Masterminds. This lets you take your supers game beyond Earth with spaceships, aliens, and galactic empires. If you enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy, this book is for you. It went it to print before Xmas and it should be releasing later this month. The pre-order for The Cosmic Handbook is still open, so jump on that now if you want our usual deal (order the print book, get the PDF for only $5 more).

Following that in February will be the Revised Edition of the M&M Gamemaster’s Kit. The original has been out of print for some time and we know a lot of GMs have been waiting for its return. The screen itself is the same but we’ve replaced the booklet (which was redundant with the release of the Deluxe Hero’s Handbook) with four reference cards and a combat tracker.

 

And last but not least Pathfinder

Last year we released our mammoth new book, Freeport: The City of Adventure for the Pathfinder RPG. This year we are following it up with more resources. First, we’ll be releasing a serialized adventure called Return to Freeport. This six-part adventure will be released in monthly PDF installments in the first half of the year and then collected into a print volume in the fall. We’re also working on a Freeport Bestiary, which will include all the classic Freeport monsters plus a bunch of new ones. These will, of course, work in any Pathfinder campaign.

Lastly, we’re starting a Pathfinder PDF series. Owen K.C. Stephens is putting these together and they will be short, focused PDFs with fun new options, some new and some updated from our books of the d20 era. The series will also serve to expand on the World of Freeport, though the rules material will be useable in any setting.

And some odds and ends

We released Love 2 Hate, our first party card game, in 2015. The game is doing well and was recently featured on Huffington Post. We plan to support it this year with two expansions. The game lends itself well to themed decks so that’s just what we’re doing. In the spring we’ll be releasing Love 2 Hate: Comics, which lovingly lampoon the world of superheroes and supervillains. Then just in time for the no doubt totally chill and uncontroversial American presidential election we’ll have Love 2 Hate: Politics! Each expansion will add 110 cards to the game. You can mix these in with your base game or play them on their own for a themed experience.

Busy 2016 planned indeed!
