<+Pexx> Howdy, I am John Barnhouse, but everyone just calls me Pexx. I am the recent new hire at Frog God Games, but I have been following and purchasing the companies products since 2013.
<+Pexx> For some history of the company…It originally started as Necromancer Games back in the early 2000s.
<+Pexx> Shortly after Necromancer hung it up, co-founder Bill Webb established Frog God Games just to publish Greg Vaughan’s The Slumbering Tsar as a fourteen-part subscription saga, to be issued as one massive book at the end of the project.
<+Pexx> Necromancer linked up with Sword & Sorcery at the start and Frog God Games joined forces with Swords & Wizardry almost right out of the gate. Just noticing the similarities in names and timing.
<+Pexx> The OGL (Open Gaming License: resulted in whole new competing RPGs, like Mongoose’s Conan: The Roleplaying Game, and Pathfinder, from Paizo. But another group emerged: those who wanted to recreate prior editions of Dungeons and Dragons using the OGL. OSRIC (1st AD&D) and Labyrinth Lord (Tom Moldvay’s Original Basic D&D) are two of the better-known retroclones
<+Pexx> Swords and Wizardry is our companies system and most everything we print comes in that version+whatever is popular with the kids these days (currently 5e)
<+Badmike> I am Mike Badolato (Badmike) customer service maven at Frog God Games. I have been playing RPGs since 1978 and buying, selling and trading RPG items online since 1994. I co-run the North Texas RPG con, now in it’s 11th year
<+Badmike> I have known the main characters at Frog God Games for years, but only recently came aboard as a full partner.
<+Pexx> We have a kickstarter that just launched today Sea King’s Malice (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/froggodgames/sea-kings-malice-a-5e-adventure-in-the-deadly-dept/posts/2507979)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/froggodgames/sea-kings-malice-a-5e-adventure-in-the-deadly-dept/posts/2507979 (Already Funded), but if you would want to dabble with us before going for a big Kickstarter we recently starting doing Indiegogo called Mystery in Ravenrock…
