Shadow World joins the New World Order at Guild Companion Publications Ltd

Shadow World joins the New World Order at Guild Companion Publications Ltd

(Charlottesville, Virginia USA and Cambridge, England: 15th August 2010)

Aurigas Aldebaron LLC, Mjolnir LLC dba Iron Crown Enterprises, and Guild Companion Publications Limited are pleased to announce that they have agreed in principle that the entirety of the Shadow World product line will be transferred from Mjolnir LLC to Guild Companion Publications Limited, who will be responsible for the publication of all existing and all future Shadow World materials.

Terry Amthor, creator of the Shadow World setting, said “I have really enjoyed working with Nicholas at Guild Companion Publications Limited on scenarios for the Guild Adventurer series and on my recent sourcebook, The Land of Xa-ar and Northern Saralis. These experiences convinced me that the time was right to move Shadow World officially to a new home. I approached Aurigas Aldebaron LLC and they were in complete agreement with me. Nicholas and I have discussed many future projects that we can and will be doing together. As far as I am concerned, this is the best thing to happen to Shadow World since I was publishing as Eidolon Studios – and this time, I don’t have to spend my weekends printing the books myself!”

Nicholas HM Caldwell, Director of Guild Companion Publications Ltd, said: “This IP transition makes de jure the de facto state of affairs that has been the case for several years now; most importantly, it means that we can give Terry free rein to develop Shadow World in the breadth and depth that it deserves. It also means that we will be able to solicit Shadow World submissions from fans, and once they have been vetted by Terry for adherence to the evolving and growing canon of material, publish those as additional material. As part of our commitment to supporting both major versions of Rolemaster (RM2/Classic and RMSS/FRP), all future Shadow World products will be dual-statted, and we will be adding RMSS/FRP material to existing products as quickly as we can as part of the reformatting process to make them suitable for our print-on-demand service”

The first new Shadow World product from Guild Companion Publications Ltd will be “The Shadow World Player’s Guide – The World“. This will be followed in due course by “Eyes of Stone“, an adventure set in Emer to be published in the fourth issue of The Guild Adventurer, and Terry’s next regional sourcebook, Emer III: The Southeast. Look for more details on upcoming Shadow World projects and how Shadow World fans can become involved in the new world order for Kulthea on the Guild Companion and ICE forums.

About Shadow World

A planet hangs on the threshold between Order and Chaos, a focus of strange powers and portals to alien dimensions. Sorcery clashes with ancient technology while capricious deities make war and the Dragonlords walk as men. Against them all rises the Unlife, a force whose dark servants seek the destruction of all that lives…
This is the Shadow World, a complete high-fantasy setting for Rolemaster originally created by Terry Amthor by the 1980s and developed further primarily by him ever since.

Shadow World is a registered trademark of Terry Kevin Amthor.
