Yes, at long last, I've found a viable partner in the form of Dominique Crouzet, the author of the OSR game "Fantastic Heroes & Witchery", a mammoth tome of old-school rules that has generated quite a lot of buzz (and that I will be reviewing in a while). Crouzet approached me a couple of weeks ago, and since then we've been planning and organizing, and Dark Albion will eventually be much-expanded from the basic form currently found on theRPGsite. Crouzet will not only be publishing Albion but will be contributing material as a collaboration with me on the book.
The commercial version of Dark Albion will include some really amazing maps, excellent art and production, and all-new material, including:
-A complete Chronology of the Rose Wars
-A complete detailed list of significant NPCs, Yorkist and Lancastrian, and noble houses
-New Rules and setting-specific modifications to old-school play
-Expanded details on some of the important areas of the setting (including rules on firearms, poisons, alchemy, character backgrounds, and social status, among others)
-Guidelines on how to run a variety of different games in Albion, including campaigns focused on adventuring in the frontier regions, court intrigues, and warfare.
-Expanded information on the Church of the Unconquered Sun and the Clerical Order
-Expanded information on The Continent, including Frogland and the various other nations of the mainland.
-Some really excellent rules and tables on encounters
-And, no doubt, much more!
The book will be designed to be system semi-neutral, intended to be easily used in any OSR or older-edition D&D rule set, and relatively easily convertible to later-edition D&D and other fantasy RPGs. There will also likely be an appendix for running Albion specifically with FH&W.
So stay tuned for more information as work proceeds on this.
