Battlefield Press to Publish Northern Crown Pathfinder Edition


The Northern Crown: New World Adventures Cover
In 2005, Atlas Games released the critically acclaimed Northern Crown campaign setting under the Open Gaming License. Its two core releases, New World Adventures and The Gazetteer, brought legendary North America to life. Its fans weaved singular stories of frontier adventure, political intrigue, and supernatural horror. Its heroes fought for freedom, charted vast wildernesses, and battled unknown evils.
I wanted to accommodate both history and legend, stirring them together into a setting that would have the feel of the historical past but would allow for heroic adventures, magic, and monsters. The geography would look the same, but the place names would be subtly altered, suggesting an alternate history where the might-have-beens and what-ifs of our past were made real. 
—Northern Crown Designer’s Notes, Doug Anderson, 2005
Today, we’re announcing an agreement with Battlefield Press that allows them to bring Northern Crown author Doug Anderson’s vision of legendary North America up to date. They’ve shared with us a plan to combine the two existing Northern Crown volumes into one complete book, and in the process, update all material to the current Pathfinder rules. In addition, they plan to detail the Southern continent and create a new creature compendium for the setting.

We’re excited to see this remarkable RPG setting given a new opportunity to flourish because we believe that games like Northern Crown embody the truest creative spirit of roleplaying. It speaks unmistakably to our founding slogan, “Charting New Realms of Imagination.”
