(Irving, TX) - Nightshift Games Publisher Paul Arden Lidberg announced today
that Nightshift Games would be publishing a line of "d20" system game
products. "We're very excited by the possibilities opened by d20 and use of
the Open Game License (OGL,)" said Lidberg. "It's an opportunity to expose a
new group of players to the kind of fine games and worlds we've been creating
To emphasize their commitment to d20, Nightshift Games will be releasing not
one, not two but three d20 products in November. "We want people to know
we're here, and this seemed like the best way," said Lidberg. The three
releases will be "The Horror Beneath", "The Foundation" and the Vampire
Hunter$ Miniatures Boxed Set.
"The Horror Beneath" is a 32-page fantasy adventure created by Berzerker
Press for Nightshift Games. It includes a complete adventure and extensive
background on the small village of Scarborough. It is set in the world of
Vallkan, which will be the subject of future releases using d20. It also
includes a preview of "Black Powder Gods," a spring release set in the same
world. The adventure is designed for 4-6 characters of 3-5 levels. Berzerker
Press is a new design studio formed in the pursuit of quality d20 material.
"The Foundation: A World In Black & White" is a game of superheroic adventure
using the d20 system. Set in modern day, The Foundation will be the first
superhero game released using d20. It presents complete and easy to follow
rules for heroes, and provides many examples and 2 scenarios. "While it was
originally solicited to come out with our own 'Paradigm Shift' system," said
Lidberg, "I decided to re-spin the game when the design team showed me what
they could do with d20. I'm also very happy to take advantage of the
opportunity it presents," he added.
"The Vampire Hunter$ Miniatures Boxed Set" is a compilation of-sorts of the
first 8 miniatures released for the Vampire Hunter$ role-playing game. But
now it's something more. Included in the package are complete stats for all 8
figures in both the Cinematic Adventure system (which is what VH was written
for) as well as d20! Also included are a small map and a scenario for using
all the figures. "This makes the product more than just another boxed minis
set - it's almost a complete game!" reported Lidberg. "And we didn't
increase the price at all to make up for the additional content!"
More products are planned for release in the coming months, including a
series of locale books (starting with "Blackwater") and continuing support
product for Foundation (including fiction!) and the world of Vallkan (with
the release of "Black Powder Gods" in March).
