New Dark Conspiracy Fiction

No, I’m not talking about the upcoming elections. Dark Conspiracy is a roleplaying game my fellow Alliterate and long-time pal Lester Smith created for GDW way back in 1991. It’s set in a dark and cynical future in which megacorps and monsters conspire to suck the life (literally and metaphorically) from humanity.

A new company called the Gamers’ Conglomerate landed the license to revise Dark Conspiracy for a new edition, which is planned for 2007. As a part of that, TGC director Marcus Bone (who had much to do with Demonground once upon a time) commissioned an introductory piece of fiction from me. I just turned it in last week, and I had the wonderful experience of creeping myself out as I wrote it—just in time for Halloween.

  2. Hi All,

    Matt is correct, his fiction will appear as the lead-off fiction for the new core rulebook.

    A big thanks to Matt, BTW, he is as congenial and professional as his reputation suggests!

    Regards,
    Marcus Bone

    1. Honestly, I don’t know. Marcus was great to work with and paid me for the story, although I don’t believe the new rules have seen print yet. I don’t know what his current publishing plans are.
