We have some news to share about our translated game lines - Yggdrasill, Qin, Kuro and Keltia.

We’ll be ceasing sale of these games at the end of June. We wanted to let you know now, so that you have an opportunity to buy anything you’ve been thinking of picking up.

However, take heart! We’re delighted to say that once our time as custodians of these games comes to an end, we’ll be handing over to le 7eme Cercle, who created these fine titles. And so in future English language versions of Yggdrasill, Qin, Kuro and Keltia will be available through them, along with any future supplements they translate.

So what happened?
Fans of our translated lines will be aware that progress has been painfully slow. Getting these titles translated for the English language market, at the quality we demand, has consistently proved a big challenge. We love all of these games - which is why we licensed them in the first place - but we have really struggled to find a workable solution.

We’ve been quietly trying to find a workflow that provides a reliable production schedule at a cost that can be recouped by sales. Despite our best efforts, and the efforts of several different line developers and teams, nothing has stuck. We’ve spent some time talking with le 7eme Cercle to identify the best way forward, and have decided that these great games should return to their creators.

We’ll be doing everything we can to help le 7eme Cercle hit the ground running, and we’ll be handing over all the unpublished material we have in hand. We all feel that this is the best way to look after the many fans of these games.
Le 7eme Cercle is the proper home for all of these great titles, and we wish them the very best in their mission to bring them into the English language!

Yesterday we revealed the cover for the next Kuro supplement, Kuro Tensei, which will be available to pre-order soon.

But what is Kuro? Well, it’s our roleplaying game of futuristic, Japanese-style horror. Think cyberpunk combined with ghost stories. It’s dark, scary stuff, and in today’s blog we thought we’d take a closer look.

There’s a Halloween Sale on all week over at DriveThruRPG, and you can grab yourselves a ghoulish bargain on some of our scariest PDFs: today we take a look at one of those, the Kuro Core Rulebook.

To celebrate the launch of the pre-order and PDF of Makkura, we’re giving you the first adventure, Fugu, for free. Just click on the image below to download the PDF:

Makura-Fugu-Thumb300

Click to download the free scenario.

Fugu: Several people have been murdered on the Kaijin platform out at sea. The police are having difficultly finding a link between the victims, even though it seems the work of a serial killer. Can the heroes find the serial killer, or will the killer find them first?

About Makkura

They lied to us.

They said it would all be over in a few weeks: the blockade, the food shortages, the power cuts.

It’s been over six months.

They said everything would be all right, but I can only see things getting worse, and there is something out there in the darkness. It’s getting harder to deny, and even harder to ignore.

I don’t know what to do. There is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The shadows are hungry and I can see them everywhere. They whisper that I am a Potential, that I have the power to make things right. But all I know is that when I stare into the darkness, something deep within is staring back.

Makkura: Absolute Darkness.

Makkura is a campaign of six full adventures for Kuro, the roleplaying game of near-future Japanese horror. Each adventure is linked together with several additional scenarios, taking you to the next level of the Kuro saga. Secrets will be revealed, spirits awoken and terrible enemies will prowl the streets of Shin-Edo.

The Kuro incident was just the beginning.

Makkura is a complete campaign for Kuro, continuing on from the adventure in the Kuro Core Rulebook. Softcover, black & white interior, 128 pages.
