Frank Mentzer launches Empyrea Kickstarter

Frank Mentzer, TSR alumni and creator of the D&D Red Box and the rest of the BECMI series of D&D, has been working to prepare his own game world for commercial sale for a long time. Previously this setting has been referred to as Aquaria, but the setting title has now been officially announced as Empyrea, named after the greatest empire of the continent of Aquaria.

I am a big fan of BECMI D&D and Frank Mentzer's game design. I am also excited to learn of the design team that Frank has brought with him:


Frank Mentzer, Darlene,Ted Fauster, Tim Beach,  Steven Winter, Anne K. Brown, Peter Bradley, Don Higgins, Mark Quire, Alyssa Faden, Anna Meyer, Christopher Wiese, Kevin “Doc” Wilson , David "Zeb" Cook, Ed Greenwood, Allen Hammack, Tracy Hickman, Harold Johnson, Tim Kask, Len "Leomund" Lakofka, Steve Marsh, Douglas Niles, James M. Ward , “Skip” Williams, Margaret Weis, Clyde Caldwell, Liz Danforth, Jeff Dee Jeff Easley, Larry Elmore, Jennell Jaquays “Diesel” LaForce, Erol Otus, Stephen D. Sullivan

  1. I wish Bruce Heard was involved too, but he would be very busy with Calidar anyway.
