I heard a rumour that Green Ronin is going to be working on something called an Interlock product. Can anyone shed any light on this?
Sorry we had to keep mum on this topic until now.
Here's the announcement you've been waiting for!
Miami, FL and Seattle, WA -
Green Ronin Publishing and Paradigm Concepts are proud to announce OGL Interlock, a series of related sourcebooks for d20 System. Initially, these books will come from Paradigm's Races of Legend series and Green Ronin's Races of Renown series.
"Both companies decided to do a series of race books at the same time, so rather than go head to head we agreed to work together to cover more ground," says Chris Pramas, Green Ronin's founder. "Now Paradigm is doing a giant book to complement our dwarf book and we're doing an orc book to complement their elf book. All the books will bear the OGL Interlock logo."
To reinforce the connection between OGL Interlock titles, each pair of books will feature covers painted by the same artist. When the two books are placed side by side, a larger tableau will be created. Featured artists include Jim Pavelec, Mark Evans, and Todd Lockwood.
"Interlock is Open Gaming taken to the next level," says Eric Wiener, Paradigm Concepts' Chief Financial Officer. "This represents an unprecedented level of cooperation between D20 publishers. We can only hope that other companies recognize the virtues of cooperation as a vehicle to grow the D20 market."
OGL Interlock kicks off in July, with Green Ronin's Hammer and Helm: A Guidebook to Dwarves. Paradigm follows with The Lords of the Peaks: The Essential Guide to Giants in August.
