2018 has seen the launch of New Agenda Publishing with a goal of amplifying underrepresented voices in the RPG community.
There are three founding board members. There’s Misha Bushyager who will be acting as writer, editor and marketing manager. Misha is a GM who has written for games like Dead Scare, Lovecraftesque and Chill: SAVE. She currently blogs at BlackGirlGameWorks. There’s Jerry D. Grayson, on board as a writer and as production manager, who’s projects includes GODSEND Agenda, HELLAS: Worlds of Sun and Stone, and ATLANTIS: The Second Age. Lastly, there’s the ENnie Award winning game designer, Eloy Lasanta, who’ll also be working as a writer for New Agenda Publishing and as general manager. Eloy’s Third Eye Games is known for titles like AMP: Year One, the Pip System and The Ninja Crusade.
It feels like early days for New Agenda Publishing. What exactly are their plans? As it happens Eloy’s experience is an asset here. Here’s already blogged to address these questions;
I know the questions you all have. “What is this new website?” “Why are you starting a new company?”
Kind of. He describes New Agenda Publishing as a ‘new publishing venture’ and so the assumption there is we will see titles from these writers. He also describes New Agenda Publishing as ‘infrastructure’ so perhaps the goal is to get some economies of scale going.
While it may be early days yet the signs are there is some momentum behind NAP. Their Facebook page alread has over 130 fans.
