Blackmoor MMORPG goes 4e

Post by Havard » Mon Jun 09, 2008 9:24 pm

CMP's Mynex/ Robert Reed III just posted this over at www.dablackmoor.com :
4e is released, I'm sure a lot of you who have been wondering what's going to happen, who have been speculating on what's going to happen, if there's going to be a 4e MMRPG...

Well, you'll just have to wait a little long...





Was that long enough?

There will be a 4e MMRPG version of DAB!

It will NOT replace the 3.5e!

They will run side by side, separately for a time until the 3.5e campaign ends at MegaCon 2010 (oh and you SO DO NOT want to miss that BI!).

What will the 4e DAB MMRPG look like?

Now that, that you will have to wait for a little while longer!

(HEY! I _am_ an E.V.I.L. monkey, I do have a rep to live up to!)
It remains unclear whether we will see Blackmoor Sourcebooks for 4e any time soon, or whether this is just for the MMORPG.

More news!

From http://mmrpg.zeitgeistgames.com/index.p ... =8982#8982
Mynex wrote:City of the Gods was the last official v3.5e cannon material book for Blackmoor. For the MMRPG there will still be episodes written.

v4.0e Blackmoor (tagged as 'Classic Campaign') is in it's late development now.

However... oh wait, I can't get into that yet, it's a surprise.

Some things you'll just have to wait a while longer for. Like at GenCon or a little after.
OMG!
We do live in exciting times. Looks like they have something exciting planned for us as soon as late August. 8-)

Another announcement by mynex has been made at http://www.codemonkeypublishing.com/mod ... pic&t=1174
mynex wrote:So what is the DABCCS?

Well it's the conversion of the DA Blackmoor Campaign setting to 4e!

It will cover all the things the previous DABCS covered, taking into account the changes to core races changes, new mechanics, and all the fun crunchy bits people love.

Flavor will be adjusted accordingly for the change of races/classes of course, but we're confident you will be happy with these changes and that they'll still fit the feeling you've come to expect for/from Blackmoor!

This book is planned to be a softcover, but we're looking into a couple possibilities of doing a 'special edition' some type of hard cover.

We'll give more details on that when we decide which rout of 'hard cover' we want to go.

We have 2 choices here;
Standard hard cover with all kinds of prettiness on it
or
A leather bound 3 inch 3 ring (D ring) binder that looks fan-freakin-tastic-al with the pages of the 'book' being 3 hole punched inserted into it... (plenty of room to add your MMRPG character and certs! *grin*)

Once I find where I put the card with the url to leather binder folks, I'll add it here so you all can get an idea of what the heck exactly I'm talking about!

We'd be looking to do maybe 50-150 of these 'special edition' hard covers.

If I understand the 4E license correctly, this means that the 3.5E Blackmoor will eventually have to be removed and replaced. This may mean the 3.5 Blackmoor pdf adventures for the MMORPG, and there are many of them, may not be available at some point.

ZGG are not bound by the GSL. They have a different lisence with WotC, but that doesn't mean something similar could happen eventually. Time to go download all the free downloads I guess :)
