True20 Forum is now up and Other Observations!
Green Ronin’s support website for True20 went live yesterday evening and being the kind of guy I am, I’ve already put up a bit of info for newcomers about Agents of Oblivion there.
If you’re interested in talking about True20 with me, that’s definitely the place to go. I know a lot of Savages visit this website and I was asked Saturday by MightyCthulhu himself to contrast True20 with Savage Worlds. Seeing as how I didn’t have my Elder Sign handy, I complied with his request.
For your edification, I made that the focus of this week’s razorwise report.
Something else I’d like to mention is Chris Pramas’ announcement about the direction they are going with Freeport, their oldest product line and the first one I saw with that little Green Ronin on it. If I may quote from his website…
“The Pirate’s Guide to Freeport is a pure background book. It will not have game stats of any kind, but will instead spend all of its 256 pages detailing the people, places, politics, and perils of the City of Adventure. From the beginning Freeport has always cast a wide net. We used to say it was useable with any d20 fantasy setting. Now it will be useable with any fantasy setting and any fantasy RPG.”
Wow. Very interesting stuff. I recall over the years seeing other companies attempt this, but none with the momentum and quality of Green Ronin. It’ll be very interesting to see how this works out and if this is a sign of things to come. I applaud the boldness and wisdom of this move.
