Der Autor

Wenn ich nicht gerade spiele verunstalte ich Medien. Kommt einem zu Gute bei eigenen Rollenspielen wie Malmsturm oder Projekten wie Ratten!, Savage Worlds Gentlemens Edition, Scion, Sundered Skies und ein paar anderen. An und für sich bin ich der Erzählonkel, daher auch die große liebe zu FATE. Manchmal muss es aber auch ein Burger statt Steak sein und so wird gern und oft auch Savage Worlds oder wenn es klasisch sein soll Pathfinder und Konsorten gespielt. Ich probier gern und oft Systeme aus aber die eigentliche Leidenschaft sind die Hintergrundwelten.

Wie ich berichtet habe ist Fred Hicks von Evil Hat hinter Amber her welches Erick Wujcik’s Diceless Role-Playing nutzt. Genau um dieses System geht es heute. Denn Rite Publishing, welche bisher Produkte für Pathfinder und Monte Cooks Arcana Evolved veröffentlichten planen im Zuge ihres Patronage Projekts unter Lizenz von Diceless by Design ein Rollenspiel unter Verwendung von Erick Wujcik’s Diceless Role-Playing zu schreiben. Dabei werden die Regeln unangetastet bleiben allerdings wird das Rollenspiel vor einem neuen nich-generischen hintergund spielen. Dazu im Detail:

April 19th, 2010

Rite Publishing has reached an agreement with Diceless by Design to publish a product “Powered by Erick Wujcik’s Diceless Role-Playing”. Fans of Erick Wujcik’s work (Amber Diceless Role-Playing, Shadow Knight, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) will finally get to enjoy a new experience and setting for this system.

Over the years, there has been tremendous interest in Erick Wujcik’s Diceless Role-Playing, and Rite Publishing is ecstatic to help finally bring it to fruition. This will be Rite Publishing’s eighth Patronage Project, where customers purchase a patronage, which, if the criteria are met, becomes a design project where customers get to interact directly with the authors, artists, and cartographers.

Up till now, Rite Publishing has focused on publishing games for Monte Cook’s Arcana Evolved and the Pathfinder Role-Playing Game. So Diceless Role-Playing is a departure for the Ohio-based company.

“Well, that’s what happens when fans go into publishing,” grins publisher Steve Russell and continues, “We’re fueled by a love for the game and an enthusiasm for stuff that doesn’t see much coverage elsewhere.”
“We are extremely proud that we’ve reached this agreement – not least because we know what a boon it will be for fans of Erick Wujcik’s Diceless Role-Playing, “says Steve Russell.

The project will use the rules that fans of Erick Wujcik’s Diceless Role-Playing already know. But with a new, non-generic setting, new powers, a different cosmology, and an all-new cast of significant characters, it will be unlike anything ever published. But above and beyond everything, it will still have the belief that the GM is an arbiter, unfettered by dice and with a strong focus on the story and the immersive experience, which only Diceless Role-Playing affords.

As with any publication, Rite Publishing brings a strong team to the project. Lead designer is none other than Jason Durall, while Perry Grosshans (A Witch’s Choice, To Kill or Not to Kill) will edit. Jason Rainville, whose art is set to delight fans in Race for the Crystal fold and Coliseum Morpheuon, will be the lead illustrator, while cartography is in the hands of Jonathan Roberts (Kobold Quarterly, Adventures in the Hyborian Age).

He’s played Amber for almost 18 years, worked closely with Erick Wujcik on Shadow Knight and Rebma.
