Tyrants of the Underdark is a deck construction area control game.
After reading the rules it sounds wicked! It’s produced by Gale Force 9 and Wizards of the Coast.

When I first heard about this game at the Alliance open house I thought oh sweet some cool minis for D&D – don’t think that.  Think I’m Drow instead.

Please check out my Gofundme to help with Gen Con expenses.  Thanks in advance!

Creative Coterie: TEGG and Twin Fire Join Forces

 

TORONTO and DETROIT—The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) and Twin Fire Productions (TFP) today reached a creative coterie, a partnership, with The Archmage himself, Mr. Ed Greenwood.

 

In 2014, TFP unveiled an ingenious board game called Folklore: The Affliction, a release that was received with great critical acclaim as well as broad public support. As TFP finishes polishing and tweaking the game in time for a spring 2016 release, creative director Will Donovan will be working with Ed Greenwood on initializing two new aspects to the game: first, a series of roleplaying game (RPG) adventures; second, a series of novels from TEGG authors tied to the setting Folklore: Tales of the Affliction. Both aspects will use characters from the existing board game and also feature new characters in new adventures from the TEGG Sessorium of Creatives. Greenwood and Donovan will work together to guide the continuing folklore adventures in both the fiction and RPG lines.

 

“I grew up reading books and playing adventures written by Greenwood… That he loved what we created was awesome…that we now get to create together is incredible! The creative opportunity to extend our realm’s reach by adding novels and RPG adventures by working with Steven Schend and Ed Greenwood is fantastic,” said Will Donovan, creative director at TFP. “We’ve already got some great ideas flowing—the fans are going to be well pleased.”

 

The Ed Greenwood Group, a new transmedia publishing company from the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, launches this fall with its first novel, a brand-new Ed Greenwood title. Your World Is Doomed is the first novel in an urban fantasy setting called Hellmaw; 6 story arcs, 86 novels, 14 anthologies, 5 games, and 9 Artifacts are planned between Mr. Greenwood’s first novel in 2015 and the end of the sixth story arc, projected for October 2022. Next year (2016) will see the launch of a more traditional sword-and-sorcery setting code-named Pony Island Adventures. More settings in more genres will follow over the next ten years—For Wolf & Empire (steampunk), Lost Princesses of Mars (space opera), and In So Deep (sex fantasy), to name only a few. Quickblade, designed by TEGG head of game development Steven Schend and Ed Greenwood, is The Ed Greenwood Group’s RPG house rules and will serve as a master rules set for all adventures from all settings.

 

“I love what the gang at Twin Fire have done thus far,” said Ed Greenwood, president and publisher at TEGG. “It’s really beautiful stuff all around, and I am very much looking forward to working and creating both stories and adventures with them. This is going to be fun!”

“This agreement with ACD is great news for us,” said Ed Greenwood, president and publisher at The Ed Greenwood Group. “ACD ‘gets’ creative individuals like few other large companies do…and our partnership with them means we can follow both of our goals: to serve our Creatives, and to serve our readers, players, and fans!” The ACD traditional-format editions will all be available simultaneously with TEGG’s other formats and editions, allowing readers and players to choose whichever format suits them best without having to wait a year or more between formats.

 

ACD is one of the world’s largest distributors of game and hobby products, representing more than 350 publishers and thousands of products from their Madison, Wisconsin, headquarters and three warehouses across the United States. ACD brings more than 20 years of market experience and knowledge to Mr. Greenwood’s new venture. “It’s amazing to be working with Mr. Greenwood and his Sessorium of Creatives, said Bob Maher, president and owner of ACD. “I’ve been a fan of Mr. Greenwood’s work for a long time. Watching him take talented new and established creatives from the literary, gaming, and arts worlds, add a dozen or so new and original Ed Greenwood worlds, and shake them together to form a brand-new transmedia company is incredible. For myself and all of us at ACD, it’s a joy to be able to join his creative team.”

The team will provide feedback and insight that will be used to improve all aspects of the games from concept to playability to design look and feel.

 

Over 200+ episodes DnDUI has become quite the established, and fan loved podcast. What started out as a group of friends just gaming together in-front of a laptop has turned into one of Toronto’s top podcasts and one of the biggest Dungeons & Dragons® podcasts in North America. Weekly podcasts treat audiences to laugh-a-minute content with Marco leading his mischievous group playing not just Dungeons & Dragons® but other games—roleplaying and table top. While DnDUI informs audiences about the games, the artwork and the rules, etc…they also do an amazing job of showing audiences just how much fun each of the games are to play too. And now DnDUI is bring their great skills of game evaluation and assessment to The Ed Greenwood Group.

 

“Holy Crap! We’re working with Ed F*cking Greendwood!” said Marco Burtuzzo, the group’s charismatic leader. “Can’t wait to get started,” said Nick Etherton, DnDUI’s illustrator, “This is going to be so incredible, it’s like a childhood dream.” Ed Greenwood, who first met members of the gang at a 2014 convention, was taken by the group’s energy relaxed attitude. “Marco and his DnDUI group are fun guys to game with. While their pod cast is definitely for adults only, that’s okay by us,” said Ed Greenwod president and publisher. “It’s important when reviewing games that they be honest, and of course, be themselves.”

 

The Ed Greenwood Group, a new transmedia publishing company from the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, launches this fall with its first novel, a brand-new Ed Greenwood title. Your World Is Doomed is the first novel in an urban fantasy setting called Hellmaw; 6 story arcs, 86 novels, 14 anthologies, 5 games, and 9 Artifacts are planned between Mr. Greenwood’s first novel and the end of the sixth story arc, projected for October 2022.
