IOLA, WI -- August 10, 2007 --- Adventure Games Publishing is pleased to announce the release of a special, limited edition product at Gen Con® Indy 2007. Titled XXXI in reference to this being the 31st year of Judges Guild, the 48-page product is packed with Wilderlands of High Adventureâ„¢ gaming goodness, ready for Judges to use right off the page with Castles & Crusades®.

"Gen Con is very important in the history of Judges Guild, and I wanted to release a special, limited edition product to highlight that relationship," said James Mishler, President of Adventure Games Publishing. "Judges Guild premiered at Gen Con IX, when Bill Owen sold the very first maps of the City State of the Invincible Overlordâ„¢ out of the trunk of his car on the first day of the show. The odd sales method only helped to build the mystique around the product. Bob Bledsaw showed up the next day, bought a dealer's table, and the rest, as they say, is history. Fortunately, I've no need to sell XXXI in the parking garage; it will be available at the Troll Lord Games booth (#515)."

The Wilderlands of High Fantasyâ„¢ was the first fantasy campaign setting, published in 1977 by Judges Guild as the world built around the classic City State of the Invincible Overlord. Adventure Games Publishing's Wilderlands of High Adventure updates and expands the campaign setting, adding a modern, epic high fantasy veneer to the classic swords and sorcery core of the setting, and providing Judges with all the tools, information, and campaign elements needed to pick up a product and run a fun, engrossing, and complete game session or even campaign with as little or as much additional preparation as desired.

XXXI is a special preview of what Adventure Games Publishing has to come. XXXI contains:
● The complete text of the very-well received Free RPG Day product Imperial Town of Tell Qa: Northern Bastion of the Falling Empire, including 83 locations complete with NPCs, plus details on races, cultures, military defenses, local Mycretian cells, adventure rumors, recent history, and streets and market places, and a gorgeous yet eminently useable map of the town;
● 20 entirely new and highly detailed random encounters designed specifically for use with Tell Qa;
● Complete and revised details on the Mycretians for use with the Wilderlands of High Adventure and Castles & Crusades. Designed as a major foil for the use of the Judge, the Mycretians and their lone god, Mycr, have always been among the most mysterious and interesting protagonists of the Wilderlands of High Fantasy. XXXI presents the Mycretian's motives and methods, and three entire Mycretian sects, plus the completely revised Mycretian class along with complete details on all new Mycretian gifts;
● A couple of other surprises...
XXXI weighs in at 48 pages and retails at $10.

The first Wilderlands of High Adventure products, designed and approved for use with Castles & Crusades, are scheduled to be in stores in late 2007.
