Green Ronin Announces Modern AGE
I've been a big fan of Green Ronin and the Adventure Game Engine for years. They just announced Modern AGE and a setting, Greg Rucka's Lazarus to release simultaneously this fall.
But, I'm a bit perplexed. First, with only a handful of releases for Fantasy AGE, why a whole new rule book for Modern AGE? Why not just tie it into the Lazarus setting? Also, what about the Fantasy AGE Companion that has seemed to disappear from the schedule?
And as someone who has waited, impatiently, for GR to release something, we're supposed to believe that this fall will see the Critical Role World Book for 5E AND a new branch of AGE with two books? Personally, I doubt it.
I'm not sure how to feel about this announcement. A few weeks ago, I'd probably be chomping at the bit about it, but I just don't see any of it happening on time. Especially considering their plans to publish the Tales of the Citadel fiction line AND the setting book for 5E.
I guess we will see.
