DG at Gen Con and the Demon Hunters RPG
It’s Gen Con week! Come meet the DG and ZOE folks at the Zombie Orpheus Entertainment booth (Booth 114). ZOE will be holding several screenings during the convention, including the world premieres of Dark Dungeons, The Gamers: Natural 1, and The Gamers: Humans & Households.
While you’re at the ZOE booth (or if you happen to spot Jen Page on the con floor), make sure you pick up a postcard to learn more about the upcoming Demon Hunters Roleplaying Game Kickstarter happening this September. There be treasure in them cards! No really, there’s a prize on the card. See for yourself, and click on through to find out more!:
Little sad that the 2nd edition of the RPG will be shifting to Fate as opposed to upgrading from Cortex to Cortex+ but still can’t wait for more material for my favourite game. Guess I’d better start saving the pennies for the Kickstarter.
Oh, you’re right. I didn’t notice that. I think that Don said at some point that it was going to be Cortex+ and I assumed that this was still the plan…
I’m positively surprised that the roleplaying game takes place in the universe of the comic. I thought (and again, I think Don also said so at some point) that the universes would be differ from one another.
I think it’s the better way to go, because otherwise we would have four different Demon Hunter universes (original films, first RPG, comic and second RPG) and that is even more confusing than “just” three versions ^^
I never said they’d be different universes, but at one point it was going to be Cortex Plus. Fate Core turned out to be an easier license to work with and the rules are crazy fun and do everything I wanted the rules to do. Cam Banks will be still designing the game and will be inspired by Fate Core and based on it, but will totally be self-contained in the book. So unless you’re running other Fate Core games (which you should because they’re awesome) you won’t need any other books to run the game but the new DHRPG.
