Yeah, and how's that been working out for the video game industry?聽 I don't feel a wealth of confidence eminating from the fan base in general.

!I!

Pretty well?聽 I'm not sure what niche you're looking at, there are always disaffected groups but the industry as a whole is stunningly healthy with no end in sight, really.

(compare to the global film industry which is projected at $38bn in 2016 up to $50bn in 2020.)

Even if he sadly wasn't here for the announcement, rest assured Greg knew all about this project and was delighted that it was happening. The last time Jeff and I were with Greg was at Gen Con last ye

Yes, with an LED light and two batteries.

Im聽hoping it will be just about Ducks and their adventures in the marsh. Anything else will be a major disappointment...

Dude.聽 I am a parent.聽 You can't scare ME with that crap!

- We'll be there when we're there.

- I've got an idea!聽 Let's all play "who can be quiet the longest?"

- Don't MAKE me turn this thing around!!!

- <annoying woo-woo-guru voice>: "Wherever you go, THERE you are.聽 So we are THERE now... And we are there NOW... And... " (obligatory contuation, at random intervals throughout the rest of the trip:聽 woo-woo-guru voice "And we are there now, too!")

@Rick Meints聽what's Chaosium's stance on fan-made mods for games, e.g. Elder Scrolls' Oblivion or Skyrim?

I.know some IP holders can be hyper-protective (eg Tolkien Estate), and so try to shut down such projects hard - lawyers, threats of being sued, etc...

I live in China and have my own consulting company here. I've had this idea of getting an IT (Gaming) intern to do up a Glorantha/RQ mod. Interns in China are often unpaid. Sometimes, they'd get paid about the equiavalent of around $500US/拢300 per month... (average salary here is about double that!) They usually intern for a few months (6??).

So,聽I would love to see this come to computer gaming.聽

I would too, if done decently.

But again, Cyanide. Their entire business model is getting licenses and churning out half-assed games that sell enough on the brand to make a profit.

I loved Paranoia! Great game! So,聽I would love to see this come to computer gaming.聽

The Paranoia game actually already came out a couple months ago on the Epic store. It got very little fanfare or attention聽-- I didn't know about it until yesterday -- and reviews were not great. Apparently earlier this month it was quietly pulled from the only place that was selling it, and its store page was deleted. No one has said why.

I'm not really sure what you are specifically asking me, but I believe the answer is "no". You cannot use our IP for anything computer game related that will be free, for profit, shared, 聽distributed, or any combination thereof. We have an exclusive聽license with a software company.聽

If you have a project in mind, please email mob at chaosium, who is our head of licensing. He can best determine what is or isn't possible.

Is there any chance for any, even cryptic, ambiguous, and vague prose regarding progress on this project ?

Not yet. There will be much soon enough.
