Day 10 of RPGaDay asks what my favourite RPG publisher is.


This is a very tough one, as there are so many great companies. Games from Chaosium, Fantasy Flight Grounds, Evil Hat Games and many more all line my shelves, but I’d have to say that right now, my favourite would be Pelgrane Press.

UnknownThey produce top-notch products like Trail of Cthulhu and Night’s Black Agents, two of my new favourite games. They both use the Gumshoe system, which has some great game mechanics for point spends using skills.

You might also recognize 13th Age and Hillfolk as two more award-winning games from Pelgrane Press.

It’s tough to pick a favourite, since Pinnacle Entertainment Group also sucks up a lot of my money through Savage Worlds games, but I’d say that Pelgrane is producing more stuff that is up my alley (dark and frightening) than anyone else and is more of a go-to company for me than any others.

More awesomeness...
