Big Product Update

A bunch of our print products are now available on store shelves, from fine internet merchants, and from our own Green Ronin Online Store.

Hobby Games: The 100 BestTo make Hobby Games: The 100 Best, editor James Lowder locked 100 hobby game industry luminaries in 100 rooms with 100 typewriters, and tasked each one with writing about his or her favorite hobby game. It can be surprising to see which authors love which games. Game designer Mike Selinker, who wrote about the card game Bohnanza in Hobby Games 100, calls the book "Just about one of the coolest projects I've ever been associated with," in the Pulp Gamer Pod Show. (Pulp Gamer: Inside Track 032. The bit about Hobby Games: The 100 Best is about 30 minutes in, but do listen to the whole show, as these guys are quite entertaining.)


Also now available in print from Green Ronin:

ParagonsThe Paragons Campaign Setting for Mutants & Masterminds presents a world where "reality" doesn't mean quite the same thing it used to, where the word "impossible" is used conditionally when it has any meaning at all, and where you will believe a man can fly, because there's a good chance of seeing it on the evening news.


Faery's Tale DeluxePlay a pixie, brownie, sprite, or pooka in an enchanting storytelling game of imagination and wonder. Suitable for ages 6+, Faery's Tale Deluxe is a perfect introduction to adventure games for children and adults.


Escape From CeranirBleeding Edge Adventures #6: Escape from Ceranir: For centuries, the academy and fortress of Ceranir has kept the lands safe, but when no help emerged in the face of a terrible undead attack on the village of Erburg, the locals have become frightened and disturbed by the apparent silence from their protectors. Those messengers who have returned bring stories of an eerie silence, and no means to enter. It falls to a band of local heroes to solve the mystery of Ceranir and find out just what exactly happened to this famous stronghold.
