Nightfall Games, the publisher of SLA Industries and the forthcoming Terminator RPG, has acquired the rights to The StokerVerse RPG.
Stoker & McAuley LLC, the seller, is a venture from author Dacre Stoker, the great grand-nephew of Bram Stoker and Chris McAuley, award-winning artist, writer and gaming expert.
A Kickstarter is planned for 2022, with a 240-page book planned and Nightfall’s S5S system used.
A free to download Dracula’s Revenge will be released via DriveThruRPG as a quick start before it. Dracula’s Revenge will be the direct sequel to Bram Stoker’s Dracula novel.
Chris McAuley, Co-founder and Creative Director, Stoker & McAuley, told press;
The StokerVerse has already seen the commissioning of various Comics, Novels, audio books and boardgames, proving its ability to spawn a plethora of product potential. We don’t just focus on Dracula, but move into the worlds of original horror and characters inspired by other popular and chilling narratives from Bram Stoker’s works. The StokerVerse intertwines several rich narratives in a multitude of genres. Within its classic gothic, sci-fi, steampunk and cyberpunk worlds authentic and detailed characters with deep interpersonal narratives provide our products with protagonists, connectability and villainy. The interactive nature of the products that we wish to present through Stoker & McAuley Interactive Entertainments will transport a huge global audience into Bram’s chilling worlds.”
At Nightfall Games, Mark Rapson added;
I am very pleased that Nightfall Games will be working with the folks at Stoker & McAuley. We have already spent a number of hours discussing their plans for StokerVerse and I have to say that this really is a very exciting world to be part of – absolutely perfect for tabletop roleplay. The team at Stoker & McAuley have a big vision for the StokerVerse and given the breath and depth, this could well be the beginning of a continuing publication line for Nightfall. Every now and again I find myself giddy with excitement as I realise how awesome this will be for fans of horror driven roleplaying – it complements our other products so well.
