[Dragon Fist][vapourware] Dragon Fist scenarios

Post by Big Mac » Mon Aug 26, 2013 4:54 pm

I saw a mention of two Dragon Fist scenarios called, Tianguo Ghost Story and Burning of White Lotus Temple in a thread at the locked Dragon Fist forum at the Green Ronin forums.

I went digging for more information and found that these adventures were under development by Gareth-Michael Skarka of Adamant Entertainment (rather than Green Ronin themselves).

I'm not sure what happened to derail Green Ronin's Dragon Fist revamp, but Amazon has a page up for Green Ronin's new Dragon Fist and it seems like Adamant Entertainment had enough of the core product to put out a call for playtesters.

I'd take that Amazon page with half a pound of virtual salt. Until Green Ronin announces it, there's no book to sell.

I think Green Ronin had other, higher priority projects to work on, which led to the current vaporware status for Dragon Fist.
It's a pity, because the original game is very good. Luckily, it is also a game that doesn't need much setup nor very complex adventures -- the genre feel is what is really important, so lifting the plot from one or more of the reference movies (or Wuxia novels) is sufficient for a full campaign (the original game has just seven character levels, after all).

That's a proper ISBN there. I would say that Green Ronin allocated the number to the book...and then abandoned work on it.

Maybe Chris Pramas will revisit the idea one day. If he can do a Freeport Kickstarter to fund a new book he could also do a Dragon Fist Kickstarter to fund a new Dragon Fist project.
