D101 Games to cease publishing Wordplay

d101 Games

From talking to Graham Spearing about Wordplay & D101, I’ve decided come to an end with my Wordplay endeavours and focus on D101′s other lines.

At the time Wordplay The Big Five was published, back in April 2010, Graham was unable to support the game, but now that he is it make sense for me to bow it and let him carry it forward. I’ve simply got too much on my plate with other games to do it justice any-more.

It s been a joy to publish the Big Five. As a result I’ve had some lovely life experiences and I’ll always have my copy of the big white book (a print proof with the slightly different cover 😉 ) to cherish.

I’m ceasing to publish both Wordplay the Big Five (the core rules + four settings + adventure, 240+ pages) and Adventures In Wordplay: The Drowned Lands, at the end of this Month.

That means you have three weeks to pick up these books before they go out of print.

During this period, the Print version of the Big Five will drop to £10/$16USD and the a Pdf bundle of WPB5 & The Drowned Lands will be available for £5/$8 USD.

The Print version is available from Lulu.com

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
