Following the success of our Kickstarter project to fund a translation of the classic Spanish RPG Aquelarre(pre-orders still available) published by Nosolorol Ediciones, we followed the advice offered by many backers to look at other quality Spanish games that are unavailable in English. Perhaps no other Spanish game is as overdue for translation as Aquelarre, first published thirty years ago, but we found an extraordinary variety of outstanding games that definitely deserve the attention of English-speaking gamers.
We are pleased to now announce that we have entered in agreements to publish a number of these games in English over the course of the coming year.
