Ask Dr. Evil

Our resident d20 System expert, Dr. Evil, has started a series of articles offering up ideas on how to use all those d20 books we’ve all got lying around, that might not always see much use these days beyond holding down our bookshelves. Today Dr. Evil combines Eternal Rome, Advanced Bestiary, and Fang & Fury to create a truly unique villain.

Green Ronin HQ Closed for Gen Con

The Green Ronin offices will be closed the week of August 15th through the 21st while our staff attends the GenCon Game Fair in Indianapolis. If you’re going to be there, come visit us at Booth #639, right next to Wizards of the Coast.
While you’re there you can chat with Lynn Abbey and developer Robert J. Schwalb about Thieves’ World Player’s Manual and Murder at the Vulgar Unicorn, while purchasing your brand-new copies of those same Thieves’ World books.
You’ll likely run into Steve Kenson on his way to a seminar or to run a game of Mutants & Masterminds, and we’ll have a limited batch of the second edition of M&M for you to purchase and get Steve to sign.
If you prefer, you can celebrate with Chris Pramas the release of the Freeport Trilogy: 5th-Year Anniversary Edition or talk about his work on the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay line for Black Industries.
Pick up your show-exclusive special print edition of our True20 Adventure Roleplaying rules, and catch our publishing partners The Game Mechanics and Human Head Studios, who will also be at the booth and running events and seminars.
As for seminars, we have some of our own: "What’s Up With Green Ronin?" Friday at 1:00 PM and "Welcome to Thieves’ World" Saturday at 6:00 PM. GR Developers Rob Schwalb and Steve Kenson will also be hosting the "Advanced d20" seminar Thursday at 1:00 PM.
Important Note: With our staff away, mail orders made in this period will not be filled until we get back. The earliest such orders can be filled is Friday, August 26.

Murder at the Vulgar Unicorn to Debut at GenCon

We announced earlier this week that Lynn Abbey was going to be at GenCon, and the news just keeps getting better for Thieves’ World fans. We’ve confirmed with the printer that we will have a limited number of advance copies of Murder at the Vulgar Unicorn, a Thieves’ World adventure by Owen K.C. Stephens, on sale at the convention. This is the perfect way to kick off your new Thieves’ World campaign, so grab one up before they are all gone!

Freeport’s 5-Year Anniversary at GenCon!

It seems like only yesterday that Death in Freeport introduced the City of Adventure to the crowds at GenCon 2000, back before D&D fans had any idea what "d20 System" referred to. It is only appropriate then that the Freeport Trilogy: 5-Year Anniversary Edition debut at GenCon next week. This book brings back the original Freeport adventures—Death, Terror, and Madness in Freeport—and updates them to the 3.5 rules and expands them with additional material and new artwork. All of these adventures have been out of print for years, so this a great opportunity to see where the d20 explosion began. Come celebrate 5 years of Freeport with Green Ronin at GenCon!
