Aventuras: Os Reinos Inexplorados…

20 de janeiro de 2016
NOTÍCIA EXCLUSIVA
SÃO PAULO & TORONTO—O The Ed Greenwood Group e TEGG Brazil fica feliz em anunciar um projeto especial de Forgotten Realms®: guias e aventuras que exploram o inexplorado. A cada ano, Ed Greenwood, o Arquimago em pessoa, vai escrever um guia contando tudo sobre uma parte dos Reinos. Acompanhando esse guia teremos quarto aventuras de RPG. Três delas virão das mentes do nosso Sessorium of Creatives (autores e autoras responsáveis por todos os lançamentos da TEGG no mundo) e a quarta Aventura será uma contribuição dos fãs dos Reinos.
Detalhes sobre como os fãs poderão enviar seus trabalhos para avaliação, informações sobre os guias e aventuras serão apresentados no site www.OnderLibrum.com (em breve também em português). Os guias e as aventuras serão publicadas pelo The Ed Greenwood Group, terão apoio do Onder Broadcasting e estarão disponíveis ao público via programa Dungeon Master’s Guild da Wizards of the Coast e OneBookshelf, sua distribuidora.
A TEGG planeja lançar seu primeiro guia e aventura durante a Gamehole Con (dias 4 a 6 de novembro, 2016, em Madison, Wiscosin, EUA). E as versões em português logo em seguida.
O que Ed tem a dizer sobre os reinos inexplorados…
Os Reinos são bem grandes e, com o passar dos anos, muitos cantos de facetas dessa região mágica foram negligenciados porque o Conhecimento dos Reinos era incapaz de cobrir todos os lugares. E agora vocês têm a chance de descobrir comigo o que há nesses cantinhos esquecidos!
O que Ed tem a dizer sobre os Reinos…
Estou muito feliz que a Wizards of the Coast me deixou abrir os Reinos de uma forma completamente ‘sandbox’ para todos nós, encorajando assim todos que querem criar suas histórias. Agora sim os Reinos se tornaram o mundo compartilhado que eu sempre quis criar há cinquenta anos!
O The Ed Greenwood Group e sua sede em São Paulo, Brasil formam uma empresa transmídia, fundada pelo criador do cenário Forgotten Realms®. Ativa desde o Halloween de 2015 (dia 31 de outubro), ela começou com o lançamento do romance Hellmaw: Seu Mundo Está Perdido (em breve em português!). O ambicioso projeto da empresa engloba romances, contos, aventuras de RPG, áudio, jogos, Artefatos, fantasias e cosplay e até mesmo guloseimas dos 15 cenários novos; cada um adotando um sub-gênero distinto.

Announcement – The Adventures of Mirt Continue…

The Adventures of Mirt Continue…

 

20th January, 2016

For Immediate Release

TORONTO—The Office of Ed Greenwood is pleased to announce that Ed Greenwood, The Archmage, will be writing a brand new series of linked novellas and adventures featuring Mirt, the very first character in the Forgotten Realms®. This annual two-volume set will be published by The Ed Greenwood Group, supported by Onder Broadcasting and made available to the public via Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeon Master’s Guild program and OneBookshelf, their designated distributor.

 

Greenwood on Mirt

Mirt is a stout, gruff, wheezing old physical wreck of a man, now centuries old. Once, he was an intrepid and very fortunate young adventurer; he and his friend Durnan (later the proprietor of the infamous Yawning Portal in Waterdeep) sought their fortunes together in the Sword Coast North. Striking it rich, they parted ways as Durnan settled down to have a family, and Mirt became Mirt the Merciless, captain of his own mercenary company. He retired from that when his swordarm grew too slow, his body tired of days and nights spent in the saddle, and his brain soured of being swindled by unscrupulous rulers. So he became the soon-infamous Mirt the Moneylender, working his own swindles up and down the Sword Coast, traveling constantly to stay ahead of creditors, rivals, and the local authorities. Until he eventually settled down, became a Lord of Waterdeep, and fell afoul of some hostile magic that kept him imprisoned (but alive) during the Spellplague. Freed some years back, he aided Elminster of Shadowdale in adventures in Cormyr and Waterdeep, but found himself a fish out of water in a much changed Realms. Still ridden by his wanderlust, he decides to become a traveling merchant, wandering the Realms and seeing if his wits and what he knows of ancient and hidden gates (magical portals) could be put to some use, and enjoying a life free of obligations.

 

But not, as he is to rediscover the hard way, free of adventure…

 

Greenwood on the Realms…

The Realms is a very big place, and over the years many corners and facets of it have been neglected because published Realmslore could only get to so many places and cover so much. This is a chance to discover those neglected corners with me!

 

I am incredibly grateful to Wizards of the Coast for opening up the sandbox that is the Realms for us all, to encourage everyone who wants to create in the Realms. This is now truly the shared world I hoped it would become fifty years ago!

 

Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms® and a myriad of other worlds, universes, and shared settings, is the New York Times best-selling author of literally thousands of works that have sold over a quarter billion units (250,000,000) in a dazzling array of formats in over 40 languages in more than 120 countries.

As aventuras de Mirt Continuam…

20 de janeiro de 2016

NOTÍCIA EXCLUSIVA
SÃO PAULO & TORONTO—O Escritório de Ed Greenwood fica feliz em anunciar que Ed Greenwood, o Arquimago em pessoa, voltará a escrever uma série de romances e aventuras ligadas com Mirt, o primordial primeiro personagem de Forgotten Realms®. Serão dois volumes anuais publicados pelo programa Dungeon Master’s Guild da Wizards of the Coast e OneBookshelf, seu distribuidor oficial.
O que Ed tem a dizer sobre Mirt
Mirt é um velhote encorpado, rude, de nariz assobiante, e agora ele tem centenas de anos. Ele já foi um jovem aventureiro, sortudo e intrépido; ele e seu amigo Durnan (que mais tarde se tornou o proprietário do infame Portal Bocejante em Águas Profundas) conseguiram suas fortunas juntos, no Norte da Costa da Espada. Logo após terem ficado ricos, os dois se separaram e Durnan decidiu construir uma família, e Mirt… Bem, Mirt virou o Mirt, o Impiedoso, capitão de sua própria companhia de mercenários.
Ele desistiu dessa vida quando seu braço da espada ficou lento demais, seu corpo cansado demais dos dias e noites passados na sela de um cavalo, e quando seu cérebro dolorido de tanto lidar com governantes inescrupulosos. Foi aí que ele se tornou Mirt, o Agiota, negociando para cima e para baixo na Costa da Espada, sempre viajando para ficar um passo a frente de seus cobradores, rivais e das autoridades locais. Até que realmente decidiu descansar, e aí estamos falando da época em que ele se tornou um dos Lordes de Águas Profundas, quando acabou algo de uma magia hostil que o manteve aprisionado (mas vivo) durante a Praga Mágica.
Mirt foi libertado há alguns anos e ajudou Elminster do Vale das Sombras em suas aventuras em Cormyr e Águas Profundas, mas ao mesmo tempo ele se sentia um peixe fora d’água com todas as mudanças dos Reinos. Ainda tomado pelo desejo de viajar, ele decidiu tomar um novo rumo, tornando-se um mercador de estrada, para perambular pelos Reinos e ver se sua astúcia (e alguns portais mágicos ocultos antigos) ainda funcionam. Em resumo, Mirt agora quer apreciar uma vida livre de obrigações.
Entretanto, Mirt vai descobrir, como muita gente já o fez, que a vida nunca fica completamente livre de aventuras…
O que Ed tem a dizer sobre os Reinos…
Os Reinos são bem grandes e, com o passar dos anos, muitos cantos de facetas dessa região mágica foram negligenciados porque o Conhecimento dos Reinos era incapaz de cobrir todos os lugares. E agora vocês têm a chance de descobrir comigo o que há nesses cantinhos esquecidos!
Estou muito feliz que a Wizards of the Coast me deixou abrir os Reinos de uma forma completamente ‘sandbox’ para todos nós, encorajando assim todos que querem criar suas histórias. Agora sim os Reinos se tornaram o mundo compartilhado que eu sempre quis criar há cinquenta anos!
Ed Greenwood, criador do cenário Forgotten Realms® e uma infinidade de outros mundos, universos e cenários compartilhados, é o autor best-seller do New York Times e já vendeu um quarto de bilhão de livros (250.000.000) em todos os formatos possíveis em cerca de 40 idiomas em mais de 120 países.

TEGG and Wonderthing Studios to form TEGG Audio & Music

 

TORONTO & SPRING HILL, TN—The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) and Wonderthing Studios (WTS) are pleased to announce the formation of TEGG Audio & Music. Editorial director Dave Robison of The Roundtable Podcast fame will lead his League of Extraordinary Audiographers, and the TEGG partners and licensees, to expand the TEGG Experience into the worlds of audio entertainment. From word-by-word readings to original plays and multicast works to soundtracks and songs based in the TEGG settings Robison’s new department will add a new and rich dimension to TEGGs offerings.

 

In addition to his years as a podcaster, Dave Robison has trod the boards as a professional actor, led the editorial team for an online magazine, written and produced over 40 hours of audio drama, and narrated audiobooks and short audio fiction. Robison’s proven leadership and mentoring skills, matched with his Wonderthing Studios network, will help build a solid TEGG audio production program bringing both high standards of quality and solid entertainment for fans and TEGG Creatives alike. “I have been an advocate of creative collaboration for years,” says Robison. “Ed Greenwood is a master storyteller and his vision for readers, gamers and his Sessorium of Creatives is inspiring. I’m deeply honored to be a part of the community of creatives who are making it a reality.”

 

The production of audio editions for TEGG novels is exciting but Greenwood is even more excited by the idea of brand new original audio productions and music set in his settings, “This partnership is going to be very cool…In just the few creative chats I’ve had with Dave and his delightful wife Teri I think the fans are going to be blown away by what the Robisons are planning to do for them.” Likewise Greenwood is pleased that his Creatives get to expand their repertoires, “Many of my novelists are thrilled at the idea of being able to continue their stories in multiple formats; especially audio…they are already forming groups to discuss new adventures that will start as original audio works. It’s like a painter being given a whole new set of colours to paint with and then adding music. This partnership is very exciting.” Robison adds, ““It feels like everything I’ve done these past years has been leading up to this opportunity. I know I’m not alone in my intent to seize it and blaze some new paths into the frontier of collaborative storytelling.”

 

The Ed Greenwood Group, a new transmedia publishing company from the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, launches 31st October, 2015. The first novel, Your World Is Doomed!  is a brand-new Ed Greenwood title and the first novel in a new urban fantasy setting called Hellmaw—6 story arcs, 85 novels, more than 150 short works plus games and Artifacts. Next year (2016) will see the launch of a more traditional sword-and-sorcery setting code-named Pony Island Adventures; novels based in the universe created for the board game Folklore: The Affliction and Quickblade Games—TEGG’s role playing and mini game division headed by the redoubtable Steven E. Schend. More settings in more genres will follow over the next ten years—For Wolf & Empire (steampunk), Lost Princesses of Mars (space opera), and In So Deep (sex fantasy), to name only a few.

Onder Radio | TEGG Artifacts | TEGG Costume & Livery | Quickblade Games

19th October, 2015

For Immediate Release

 

The Ed Greenwood Group

Four New Creative Coteries

Onder Radio | TEGG Artifacts | TEGG Costume & Livery | Quickblade Games

 

TORONTO—The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) is proud to announce another flurry of new creative coteries. With these new partnerships TEGG continues its expansion beyond novels into other creative forms. The Roundtable Podcast’s Dave Robison will initialize a TEGG podcast later this year as part of Onder Librum, the online portal to all things TEGG. Jeweller and artisan Kristie Courtnell, who creates under the name Lady Lilleigh, brings her years of experience and considerable talent to the TEGG Artifact division and is already working on a series of essence traps for the Hellmaw setting. For more than two decades Erminia Diamantopoulos has dressed actors for film, television and stage. She will now bring all that experience, and her special eye for what makes a garment worthy of remark, to each of the TEGG settings. Quickblade Games’ focus will be on role playing adventures and mini games. Editorial director Steven E. Schend’s decades of experience at companies such as TSR and Wizards of the Coast will be put to good use as he and his team riff adventures, monsters and more for RPG fans while also focusing on mini games; perfect for those gamers who don’t always have 4+ hours to set aside for gaming.

 

“It is both an honour and a joy to be working with my long-time friend on such an incredible project,” said Schend, “Ed’s vision for his Creatives is inspiring as is his dedication to the readers and gamers.” Courtnell looks forward, “The inclusion of artists and artisans as equal partners in this new project is fantastic and starting with over a dozen fully realized worlds for my team and I to play in is like letting kids loose in a candy store; so many exciting choices! Where do we start first?” Costume & Livery’s first project will be a trench coat from the Hellmaw setting. “I love working in film and television,” said Diamantopoulos, “But Greenwood’s vision for his new company is truly exhilarating…his commitment to each different creative process is stimulating and refreshing…I can’t wait to show the fans what we have been working on!” Starting as a singular podcast Dave Robison plans to offer TEGG fans a lot more, “Greenwood has brought together hundreds of authors, designers, artisans and other creatives covering dozens of art forms and is letting them loose to have as much fun as they can. His energy and enthusiasm for his creatives is heartening and enlivening…this is going to make great radio!”

 

These new partnerships give TEGG creative dimensions to explore unlike most other traditional publishing companies. “I am sincerely humbled by the outpouring of support for what I’m trying to accomplish,” Said Greenwood. “The talent, energy and inspired ideas that our new partners are bring to TEGG is exhilarating! Writing and creating has never been this much fun and I can’t wait to enjoy their creations myself. This is a brilliant group of very creative individuals and I’m proud to have them join our Sessorium.”

 

The Ed Greenwood Group, a new transmedia publishing company from the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, launches 31st October, 2015.

It is truly an honor to be on this new road of adventure with Ed and the many authors who answered his call.” Greenwood is excited to be working with Rodrigues and his team, “I have always amazed at how fervent and enthusiastic my Brazilian fans are and I am delighted that our first translation deal is with Leandro and his team.” Said Greenwood. “I’m also looking forward to welcoming new Brazilian authors and artisans into the TEGG Sessorium of Creatives.”

TEGG and ChiZine Become Spellbound Bedfellows, June 2015

For Immediate Release

 

The Ed Greenwood Group

ChiZine

Creative Coterie: TEGG and ChiZine Become Spellbound Bedfellows…

 

TORONTO—The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) and ChiZine Publications (CZP) today reached a creative coterie, a partnership that will see the CZP co-publishers, Sandra Kasturi and Brett Savory, join forces with The Archmage, Mr. Ed Greenwood, to help infuse an extra degree of idiosyncrasy into the new worlds and settings he’s created.

 

“Embrace the Odd” says the tagline on CZP’s website, and for almost 20 years ChiZine has lived up to its promise. CZP has long been known as the publisher of award-winning and mind-bending works that are often described as weird, subtle, disturbing, startling, and dark and are published in a myriad of literary styles and formats. “We look for the unusual, the interesting, the thought-provoking,” says Ms. Kasturi, co-owner and co-publisher at CZP. “We want to show readers something they haven’t seen before, to share the bliss of good writing with our readership,” says Mr. Savory, the other co-owner and co-publisher. “Creating and playing with Ed is going to be so much fun!” adds Ms. Kasturi.

 

The Ed Greenwood Group, a new transmedia publishing company from the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, launches this fall with its first novel, a brand-new Ed Greenwood title. Your World Is Doomed is the first novel in an urban fantasy setting called Hellmaw; 6 story arcs, 86 novels, 14 anthologies, 5 games, and 9 Artifacts are planned between Mr. Greenwood’s first novel and the end of the sixth story arc, projected for October 2022. Next year (2016) will see the launch of a more traditional sword-and-sorcery setting code-named Pony Island Adventures. CZP will participate in the Hellmaw setting along with four other Greenwood settings: For Wolf & Empire (steampunk), Lost Princesses of Mars (space opera), The Great Galactic Game (science fantasy), and Under Deadly Stars (science fiction).

 

“ChiZine’s reputation for being a publisher of great works of genre fiction is very well deserved,” says Mr. Greenwood, president and publisher of TEGG. “Sandra and Brett work hard, they have a strong respect and care for their authors and their works, and have earned respect in return. They believe in excellence, and both are quite heteroclitical in the most delightful of ways. How could anyone not want to work with them?”

 

Greenwood, Kasturi, and Savory will be co-creating ChiZine story arcs inside Greenwood’s new shared settings, and because it’s ChiZine, these story arcs will be travelling under, around, in between, and through the Greenwood storylines. Both Kasturi and Savory intend to write and play in these new spaces and places but will also be inviting their own group of dynamic and adventurous authors to participate in the ever-expanding creative space Greenwood is building.

Dungeons and Dragons Under the Influence

TEGG and DnDUI a gathering of gamers…

 

TORONTO—The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG) and Dungeons and Dragons Under the Influence (DnDUI) are pleased to announce DnDUI will become an official TEGG Gaming Group. Game Master Marco Butruzzo and his gaming group—Nick Etherton, Adriano Burtuzzo, CJ Bosco, Daniel Moscato and Raf Giancola—will assist Ed Greenwood, and TEGG head of game development Steven Schend, by advance play-testing TEGG games. The team will provide feedback and insight that will be used to improve all aspects of the games from concept to playability to design look and feel.

 

Over 200+ episodes DnDUI has become quite the established, and fan loved podcast. What started out as a group of friends just gaming together in-front of a laptop has turned into one of Toronto’s top podcasts and one of the biggest Dungeons & Dragons® podcasts in North America. Weekly podcasts treat audiences to laugh-a-minute content with Marco leading his mischievous group playing not just Dungeons & Dragons® but other games—roleplaying and table top. While DnDUI informs audiences about the games, the artwork and the rules, etc…they also do an amazing job of showing audiences just how much fun each of the games are to play too. And now DnDUI is bring their great skills of game evaluation and assessment to The Ed Greenwood Group.

 

“Holy Crap! We’re working with Ed F*cking Greendwood!” said Marco Burtuzzo, the group’s charismatic leader. “Can’t wait to get started,” said Nick Etherton, DnDUI’s illustrator, “This is going to be so incredible, it’s like a childhood dream.” Ed Greenwood, who first met members of the gang at a 2014 convention, was taken by the group’s energy relaxed attitude. “Marco and his DnDUI group are fun guys to game with. While their pod cast is definitely for adults only, that’s okay by us,” said Ed Greenwod president and publisher. “It’s important when reviewing games that they be honest, and of course, be themselves.”

 

The Ed Greenwood Group, a new transmedia publishing company from the creator of the Forgotten Realms®, launches this fall with its first novel, a brand-new Ed Greenwood title. Your World Is Doomed is the first novel in an urban fantasy setting called Hellmaw; 6 story arcs, 86 novels, 14 anthologies, 5 games, and 9 Artifacts are planned between Mr. Greenwood’s first novel and the end of the sixth story arc, projected for October 2022. Next year (2016) will see the launch of a more traditional sword-and-sorcery setting code-named Pony Island Adventures, and Quickblade—the TEGG roleplaying game “house rules” system from Ed Greenwood and TEGG head of game development Steven Schend—which will serve as a master rules set for all adventures from all settings. More settings in more genres will follow over the next ten years—For Wolf & Empire (steampunk), Lost Princesses of Mars (space opera), and In So Deep (sex fantasy), to name only a few.
