As taken from today's' press release on the Green Ronin front page
Now let's go from four color superheroes to dark fantasy with Dragon Age. This is our RPG that ties in to BioWare's terrific computer game of the same name. Last year we released Set 1 (an introductory boxed set that covers characters level 1-5), the GM's Kit (a hardback screen and adventure), and Blood in Ferelden (a collection of scenarios). We also did an open mechanics playtest for Set 2, which covers levels 6-10. We know people are hungry for Set 2 and it is indeed on the way. We are trying to release it shortly after the debut of the Dragon Age 2 computer game, so we can take advantage of the new wave of DA enthusiasm. We'll support that with another adventure collection called The Deep Roads. We're also planning a Quick Start for Free RPG Day to give gamers an easy way to check out what Dragon Age has to offer.
The biggest news for Dragon Age is that we've decided to re-work our release schedule for the game somewhat. We had originally planned to make the game four boxed sets that each covered 5 levels of play. We are keenly aware, however, that the arrival of Set 2 has taken too long so we've decided to accelerate the pace. Set 3 will now provide the rules for levels 11-20, so all the core material can get out to you faster. Even better, we are trying to get Set 3 out this year.
For those unfamiliar with the table top RPG, Green Ronin to date has only released content covering character levels 1-5; low levels essentially. Books and modules for the next mid levels (6-10) are scheduled to be released in March just after the release of Dragon Age 2. The slow release pace has left many fans frustrated as a number have played through the existing content and reached their level 5 cap. An announcement that the final levels (11-20) will come in 1 box and will be coming sooner than expected, couldn't be more timely for GM's and players left twiddling their thumbs. On the positive side of things, the slower development pace and longer play test for the mid level module, has resulted in a game that participating testers / fans are singing their praises for. I for one will be picking up everthing that's currently available before the end of March arrives.
