PUBLISHER ANNOUNCES PULP/SUPER HERO ROLE PLAYING GAME
FEATURING NEWLY DESIGNED SYSTEM
Pro Se Productions, a leading Publisher of Genre Fiction and New Pulp,
announces that one of its most consistently popular properties is
stepping beyond its covers and into the world of gaming.
YESTERYEAR by Tommy Hancock is a novel featuring a new universe of
Heroes and Villains that explores the history of these characters, from
their Pulp Roots in the Early 20th Century to the chaotic, power driven
modern era of super powered beings. Centered around a manuscript that
disappeared in the 1950s -along with its author -that has resurfaced,
YESTERYEAR weaves a tale between two books; The original manuscript that
peels back the gilded curtain from the Golden Age and the story of a
modern publisher who has possession of the mythic tell all and has to
sort out how best to use and it and stay alive.
Pro Se in
conjunction with lost gamers productions announced that YESTERYEAR is
being developed into a Role Play Game and will debut at Pulp Ark 2013.
"It's really great," Hancock stated, "that YESTERYEAR has gone to this
level. In working on the second book (Nomorrow) it became quickly
evident that there's even a richer world than I first thought that can
be played with in this series, not just by me, but by people who really
know how to play. And to work with the guys at LGP is fantastic.
They're not only experts in game design and mechanics, but they came by
that expertise by being gamers themselves. And to watch them apply
their knowledge to my stories and to really breathe a whole new life
into the universe I've gladly created, has been awesome."
only will YESTERYEAR be a role playing game, it will actually be able to
played in two different ways, thanks to a card-based system developed
by LGP. The Quadrant System will allow YESTERYEAR to be a tabletop RPB
as well as a LARP (Live Action Role Play) with no required variances.
"Although I've played a few RPGs," Hancock said, "I by no means would
qualify myself as a gamer. Yet, when I participated in one of the first
testings of the Quadrant System for YESTERYEAR, it was simple and easy
for me to understand. The ease with which the game can transition from
tabletop to LARP is simple and amazing."
YESTERYEAR has been
and will continue to be tested in a variety of ways by the minds behind
LGP, both internally and through application at conventions between now
and April. The first official unveiling and playing of the game will be
April 26-28, 2013 at Pulp Ark in Springdale, Arkansas.
Currently the Game Description is- Former Masked Man Ramsey Long’s once
missing tell all journal has resurfaced and both Hero & Villain
alike are determined to take possession of it, by any means necessary.
What secrets are kept within the journal? What really happened to Ramsey
Long? And when the dust settles, where will your loyalties lie?
As for what materials will be available for purchase at Pulp Ark 2013
related to the game, details are still forthcoming. "Source books,"
Hancock stated, "are in the planning stages and will be put together by
some of Pro Se's top talent as soon as all the particulars are worked
out. As far as having something available for fans to walk away with
at Pulp Ark 2013, we most definitely hope to have just that."

lostgamers productions (never capitalized), or LGP, is a gaming
development group out of Memphis, TN. What started out as a small group
of friends, arguing about every type of game available, has grown into
tight-knit force of creative innovation. Since its inception, one major
focus of LGP has been to evolve beyond the traditional style of tabletop
& live action role-playing games and give its audience something
different. Something they didn’t have collecting dust on a shelf at
home. Along the way, they’ve introduced us to furniture-obsessed
soldiers, multi-cultural pitchmen, living miniatures and computerized
wrestlers. So, whether you’ve been SHAFTED or manipulated in a game of
GEEK BALL, you can attest to their commitment to make sure you’ve
experienced something fun. And nothing proves that better than their
premiere experience, DEBATE OF THE DEAD.
