GOODMAN GAMES TO PUBLISH 4E “RAIDERS GUILD” ADVENTURES IN COOPERATION WITH
AXE INITIATIVE GAMES
Goodman Games is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with
Axe Initiative Games to publish its line of 4E Raiders Guild adventures
and supplements. The Raiders Guild line will be published under
the GSL license from Wizards of the Coast, utilizing the Dungeons &
Dragons Fourth Edition mechanics. The first Raiders Guild adventure
is slated for publication in spring 2009, to be followed by quarterly releases
“Raiders Guild is a brilliant concept that fits perfectly with
what D&D should be about,” said Joseph Goodman, President of Goodman
Games. “Raiders Guild lets players be heroes. These heroes challenge
a dangerous world, exploring dark places and recovering lost treasures.
But they’re not just aimless wanderers – they’re brothers in a mighty guild.
It’s a new vision for the archetypal D&D adventuring party.”
“Working with Goodman Games provides the dynamism that Raiders Guild
Dungeons & Dragons products deserve,” said Sasha Bilton, co-founder
of Axe Initiative Games. “Joseph has a wealth of experience in getting
gamers involved in his products and I’m convinced his involvement will
give us huge audience.”
The Raiders Guild series was created by eminent RPG author Robin
D. Laws, and features art direction by Dave Allsop. Drawn by ProFantasy
Software master mappers, Raiders Guild maps are some of the most
beautiful and usable available. They’ll be available in a variety of formats,
configured to print out at battle map scale, so each and every encounter
can be played against a full color backdrop. The first adventure, Mission:
Sea Crypt sees new guild members race against time to retrieve an artifact
from a coral grave that rises from the deeps once every fifty years and
features a new race of foes, the writhing certhoa.
Retailers will be able to order the first Raiders Guild release
in spring 2009 under their Goodman Games listing.
