    GREEN RONIN TO PUBLISH THE FIFTH SEASON ROLEPLAYING GAME

    N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth Trilogy Comes to the World of RPGs

    August 2, 2019—SEATTLE, WA: Green Ronin Publishing announced today that it has signed a licensing agreement with N.K. Jemisin to create a roleplaying game based on her critically acclaimed Broken Earth series. Each book of the trilogy—The Fifth Season, The Obelisk Gate, and The Stone Sky—won the Hugo Award for Best Novel, an unprecedented achievement in speculative fiction.

    “The world building in the Broken Earth Trilogy is incredible and ripe with roleplaying possibilities,” said Green Ronin president Chris Pramas. “More than that, the books are searingly relevant to the current state of our world and we hope the game gives people the opportunity to explore the issues and themes the novels handle so deftly.”

    “I’ve heard from many of my readers that they’re fascinated enough by the world of the Broken Earth that they’d like to visit it (nobody wants to live there tho!) and now they’ll get their chance,” said N.K. Jemisin. “I’ll be working with Green Ronin to try and make sure the spirit and feel of the books is rendered successfully in this new form.”

    Green Ronin will publish The Fifth Season RPG in the Fall of 2020. Tanya DePass (I Need Diverse Games, Rivals of Waterdeep) and Joseph D. Carriker (Blue Rose, Critical Role: Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting) will co-develop the game. The Fifth Season RPG will use a revised and customized version of Green Ronin’s Chronicle System, which powered the company’s long-running Game of Thrones RPG, A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying.

    More information and previews for The Fifth Season RPG will appear on greenronin.com in the coming months.

      Very cool! I've been hearing so much good things about Fifth Season, and I am very happy that the Chronicle System will return!
      The way GR is churning out literary adaptations these days, I'm actually starting to wait/hope for an Ancillary Justice/Imperial Radch rpg from you guys.

        Very cool. I will admit that personally I would have been happier with an adaption of Tad William's books about Osten Ard or Katherine Kerr's Deverry Cycle as I think they would match with the House rules and scheming nobles and such very well. But I've got nothing against this adaption but will look forward to it.
