To Whom It May Concern:

Several months back, Frank Mentzer made an announcement that he a few other people were going to start a new gaming company to produce modules statted for a variety of different RPGs. Did anything ever come of this endeavor? The reason I ask is that I offered my adventure writing services to the company via email, but never heard back. I was quite excited when I first read Mr. Mentzer's annoucement, but haven't read anything regarding such for several months.

Just Curious,

Maybe they're still looking for the funds to get it going. Not cheap to start a publishing company from ground zero.

I recall a few weeks ago (maybe longer) Frank had mentioned some RL issues pushing things back a bit.

EDIT: from March 27

I absolutely refuse to put investors at risk by having other priorities. Once I'm free to devote 110% to a new business endeavor, we'll have liftoff.

Yes.

I believe it was mentioned somewhere that he was in the middle of a confluence of family health issues recently.

He's popped up in some online haunts in recent months, but has been absent from others for awhile.

I would guess that he's been sidetracked by RL for a bit.

Last thing I read (Acaeum wise) is that he was asking about financing along with asking about who could make other contributions. I dunno that the financing was yet realized.


Ask me about my new M16!
