Yar! Off We Be Ta GenCon, Matey!

We're pretty excited about GenCon 2001 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, running Thursday, August 2nd through Sunday, August 5th. We have two great products to release at the show this year, Hell in Freeport and the d20 System Character Record Folio!

We've perhaps been too busy working on upcoming books to properly hype the Character Record Folio, but it's amazingly cool for any d20 System game. Toss that wrinkled sheet of printer paper with notes scribbled on the back. With the Folio we're talking sixteen beautiful pages, scientifically designed to carry your character through an entire campaign, with places for cohorts, familiars, magic items and other swag, and adventure logs so you can keep track of clues and avoid the clutching claws of the Legions of Hell. You'll find the Green Ronin booth in the Wizard's Attic area. Come on by and see us!

    Focus on Freeport Takes A Hellish Turn
