Title: Product Updates
Post by: Jason Morningstar on July 24, 2007, 09:08:16 AM
The Roach Returns is back from the printers (for the second time!) and looks great.  It'll premier at Gen Con and be available through IPR soon after.  This is a pair of alternate settings for The Shab-al-Hiri Roach:  Darker, written by Graham Walmsley, brings the Roach to Oxford university in the 1860's, and Overlord, written by yours truly, places it smack in the middle of the build-up for D-Day, in England, in 1944.  Each gets eight brand new command/opportunity cards, new enthusiasms, expertise choices, and more.  It's not a stand-alone game, but it will be really cheap.

Grey Ranks is about a week away from delivery and will also first appear at Gen Con.  After that it'll be available from IPR and Lulu, in print and .pdf versions.  Here's the pitch:  In Grey Ranks, you will assume the role of a young Polish partisan before, during, and after the disastrous 1944 Uprising against the Germans. Together with your friends, you'll create the story of a group of teens who fight to free their city, one of countless Grey Ranks "crews" that take up arms. Your characters - child soldiers - will have all the faults and enthusiasms of youth. Across sixty days of armed rebellion, they will grow up fast - or die.  It's a very dark take on adolescence, war, and patriotism. 

All kinds of free downloads ( are available, if you want to check them out!
