We’re pleased to announce that Alan Bahr and his Gallant Knight Games (GKG) have joined Nocturnal Media. Effective immediately, Alan is a Nocturnal Media employee responsible for a number of games and product lines, including the games he created at GKG. These games, such as the ready-for-release Tiny Frontiers: Mecha & Monsters, will be published as Nocturnal Media products.
“Alan first came to my attention as an enormous fan of King Arthur Pendragon (KAP), so I know he has great taste in roleplaying,” says Stewart Wieck, owner of Nocturnal Media. “As Alan supported various — ok, all! — of my projects on Kickstarter, I could see that he has a wide-ranging interests. Then with his own Kickstarter projects, I found that Alan was talented, organized, and 100% enthusiastic for games in general.”
Alan started in gaming as the designer of the rules for Howard Tayler’s Planet Mercenary. He recently became the project manager for this game. It’s one of a handful of game projects that Alan will wrap up outside Nocturnal Media.
Alan says, “Not only does Nocturnal Media publish my absolute favorite roleplaying game (KAP), but they're a strong example of reinvention and growth in the roleplaying game industry. From the new wave of European RPGs being translated into English, the revival of stalwarts like West End Games, and the experience their leadership brings to the table, Nocturnal provides more than just games. They provide great stories and memorable experiences! And that's something I believe is the core of everything we do.”
Tiny Frontiers published by GKG is now a Nocturnal Media product, as is Tiny Dungeons, a property that GKG recently acquired to expand the “Tiny” IP, which is collectively now called TinyD6. All the games in this series are minimalistic, rules-lite games that emphasize setting and story. This game line will be widely expanded in 2017 with such products as Tiny Dystopia, Tiny Gunslingers and Tiny Supers.
Alan and GKG bring a number of other future products to Nocturnal Media, starting with Cold Shadows, an espionage roleplaying game featuring rules adapted from John Wick's Blood and Honor ruleset, built to help players tell Le Carre-inspired spy stories! A Kickstarter to fund this game launches on January 31st. Please follow Alan on Kickstarter to receive notice when this project launches.
More of Alan’s future projects at Nocturnal Media will be announced soon. These include both original games as well as games based on exciting licensed properties.
To celebrate this merger, we’re offering Tiny Frontiers at a 50% discount both on this website and DTRPG for the remainder of 2016.
