Exciting Alternity news!

We’ve been sitting on this for a couple of weeks, dying to share it with our readers, but we couldn’t until all the details were worked out. Now that all that is taken care off we can share some exciting news… Here is the press release going out to gaming magazines (the two left) and gaming blogs later today.



Wolf-Micheri Ltd. Publishing

Löhnberg, Germany

San Juan, Puerto Rico



April 1st, 2011


The much beloved sci-fi game Alternity is back with a vengeance! The RPG originally published by Wizards of the Coast in the late 90s continues to have a huge fan base online, long after the line was discontinued by its publisher. The fans have clamored for a new edition and we listened. The newly formed Wolf-Micheri Ltd. Publishing has acquired the rights to publish Alternity materials.

The publishers have confirmed they are working on a second edition of the game integrating years of fan developments. They also intend to integrate the best innovations in game design theory that has developed since the line’s cancellation.

The stated purpose is for all past Alternity products to be partially compatible with the new edition with minor conversions. The new books, to be published in electronic form first and via major POD services in the coming months, will continue to be developed around the core two books; one aimed at players, the other at game masters.

The development team is composed of the best and brightest game developers in the blogosphere and Mr. Micheri has confirmed the new edition of Alternity will integrate elements modern gamers have come to expect: tactical combat rules, rules for the use of miniatures in the games, an upcoming miniature line, random collectable cards for skills, psionics, bionics and special equipment. The publisher went on to say, “Just because we criticize others for doing, doesn’t mean we won’t milk this baby for all its worth!”

Stay tuned to the blog for the launch of the official website coming soon.

Be ready for a new, exciting Alternity RPG. Not your father’s sci-fi game!

Have a great first day of April…

Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. Here's another one! 😉


    Cmon man! "Wolf-Micheri Ltd. Publishing" ?! 😉

    I can take "new &D edition" malarkey, but Alternity. That's just ruthless.

    If only! If only…sir.

    Have a good weekend guys.

  2. I am SOO sorry if anyone took this to be real news! I would love for it to be true, but alas it was just an April’s Fool joke… Hope no one is too mad!!!

    You should have seen the Bieber Fever: The RPG I unleashed upon my friends here in Puerto Rico!

  3. I am with Roberto on this. Alternity is one of the games we like a lot and it would be great to have it back in print. Alas I am not sure if it was possible to create an Alternity retro-clone without stepping on WotC's toes.
    So I hope you guys are not offended by that little prank, since it was not only an April Fool's joke but also our declaration of love to Alternity.
