Yeah, I'm nearly a week behind in sharing this announcement. As much as I'm adjusting to working overnights, I'm not adjusting to working overnights ;)
New Big Dragon Games Unlimited
is going to publish Steve Marsh's Shattered Norns #1: Into the Shadows
. It's being published for 5e (and who says you need a license to publish for the latest edition anyway?) although it was developed with earlier editions. Not surprising for the man who was the lead editor of the D&D Expert set and the main man behind the aquatic creatures in the AD&D Monster Manual.
What does that mean for us, the consumers? 5e is pretty easy to convert to earlier editions and with New Big Dragon Games
behind the project, it should be a good one.
Something tells me this deal was worked out during NTRPG Con 2015...
Here's the full press release.
Steve actually has all the monsters for this written up in both 1e and 5e, though he runs it as 5e. This seemed like a great opportunity to dip the NBD toe in the 5e pool. We have discussed internally the option of alternate edition releases beyond the 5e version (S&W, OSRIC, LL), but won't be making any sort of hard and fast decisions on that until we get closer to a publication date on the 5e release.ReplyDelete
