Awhile ago I wrote a roleplaying game called FU (Freeform / Universal). It has met with some success and there is a small, growing and enthusiastic fan-base for it. Last year a French writer and game designer named Cedric Ferrand contacted me to ask if he could base his own game on mine. I am very excited and pleased that the Wastburg RPG has now been published! It is in French and only available in France at the moment, but looks very cool!
I have had nothing to do with the creation of the game, beyond giving permission to use my rules. Congratulations to Cedric and his publisher!
Yes, it is very cool!
I have to ask – do you get royalties? I hope so – congrats – must be nice to have someone love your work
No royalties, but free marketing to an audience that I don’t speak the language. Cedric and I had long discussions, and in the very small roleplaying game market, this was a win-win situation for us!
Congratulations on your fame by association Nathan!
Fame by association is the best kind. You get far fewer attacks from the paparazzi! 🙂
wow what a compliment.
Ah a man of many talents I see!
that is awesome!! My hubby and I love RP! Although am more a computer gamer/old school lanning… I love a good night in role playing! While watching Sharpe and eating pizza.. 🙂
Yay to Geek games! Says the mum who had all four kids playing Dungeon last night. Wonder if we can work up to D&D? Or your game? 😉
Congratulations! That is very exciting. My 8 yr olds dream is to be a ‘proffesional gamer’ when he grows up. I hope he follows that dream!
It’s a tough path, but not an impossible one. There are many opportunities for the motivated individual and Australia is just as good a place to do it as anywhere else, which is great.
