    Dark Eternal.

    Yes, I conceived the basis for the CC game, and I have notes somewhere for the two parts that were to complete it. It was produced by New Infinities Productions, Inc. I gave over development of the mechanics, as NI wanted my gord the Rogue novels as quickly as I could write them, and then I was mneant to go on to doing a new FRPG system.

    Janos, Melf was son Luke's PC. He was really pretty happy to have a figuyre named after his character

    S'mon: NO COMMENT!

    Heh,
    Gary

    I hope to shout I do, as those yarns are thr IP of Trigee

    We changed plans aver a year ago when a publisher approached us with a proposal for full-color graphic novel versions of the Gord the Rogue books.

    That is now underway, and there will be an announcement regarding the books later in the summer. More I can not say.

    If those novels do well, there is a a strong likelihood that the regular books will be reprinted in hardback version, possibly with paperback reprints following that.

    There is no plan to reprint all seven books in one giant volume, though

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Thanks Gary

    I cant wait for any and/or all of these things to be released

    Greetings, Gary!

    One of my favorite RPGs is the 1975 Empire of the Petal Throne set. I know that M. A. R. Barker wrote it, basing the mechanics in large part upon D&D. But, after Mr. Barker submitted his manuscript to TSR, did you make any changes, additions, subtractions, etc. to the manuscript before publication?

    Howdy Geoffrey!

    Indeed, EPT is a fiine RPG, and I enjoyed playing it a good deal, although finding GMs was not always easy. My first couple of adventures were GMed by Phil Barker, in fact

    As for editing, the Professor sent in work that was just about totally clean, so that TSR published in the EPT game was about 99.9% what Phil submitted. No additions or cuts were made to the best of my recollection.

    Ciao,
    Gary

    Gary,
    I was wondering if/when you would be interested in doing a Mortality Radio show... I would love to talk to you about it. I don't know how to contact you besides this, if you could drop me an email off this thread please do so.
