WILD CARDS RETURNS TO ROLEPLAYING
Green Ronin Releases Wild Cards Campaign Setting for Mutants & Masterminds RPG
August 29, 2008—SEATTLE, WA: Green Ronin Publishing released the highly anticipated Wild Cards Campaign Setting for the Mutants & Masterminds RPG this week. The book, by series author John Jos. Miller, includes a full history of the setting, profiles and illustrations of dozens of major characters, background information and rules on the Wild Card virus, and an introductory adventure.
“The Wild Cards Campaign Setting is a great resource for fans of the series,” said Green Ronin President Chris Pramas. “John Jos. Miller did a tremendous job on the book and it’s great to see Wild Cards return to its roots in roleplaying.”
The Wild Cards series began in 1987, developing out of an ongoing superhero roleplaying campaign run by New York Times bestselling author George R.R. Martin and now spanning 18 volumes. Contributing authors include Roger Zelazny, Lewis Shiner, Melinda M. Snodgrass, Walter Jon Williams, John Jos. Miller, and Martin himself. Tor published the latest volume of the series, Inside Straight, earlier this year and the Dabel Brothers are currently publishing a new comic, Wild Cards: The Hard Call.
Green Ronin will be following the book up with two more Wild Cards titles. All-in, an adventure anthology, will release in the Fall and Aces & Jokers, a collection of famous and infamous characters, will release in the Spring of 2009.
