With the launch of Mantic Games’s kickstarter for Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game and the UK Games Expo opening its virtual doors this week, it certainly promises to be a busy one! Today, we have some very welcome news concerning both.
We recently introduced T.R. Knight as a new team member, who has joined our own Kimberly Nugent as part of the editing crew for Hellboy: The RPG. Well, we haven’t stopped there! Today, we are also very pleased to announce that Paco Jaen of G*M*S Magazine will also be joining us as we continue to head deeper into the Mignola-verse. A master of map craft in gaming and very passionate concerning representation, he will be contributing artwork to the corebook and offering insight as a sensitivity reader. Welcome aboard, Paco!
Paco has been a devotee of roleplaying games since he discovered Dragons of Autumn Twilight in the Dragonlance series and later fell in love with Lovecraftian horror. He created G*M*S Magazine in 2010 and has since written, produced and published hundreds of podcasts and videos about roleplaying and board games with his husband, Martin. He has also written and published his own work in Spain and is now expanding into the English-speaking market with Cthulhu Hispanica, a series of cosmic horror books based in Spain. Passionate about art and illustration, his fascination with cartography has recently developed into the designing of maps for his Patreon supporters. Paco has worked in the creative industries since 1998 in roles ranging from 3D modelling production through graphic and web design to art direction in leading eLearning companies in the UK. He is an advocate for inclusivity and diversity in games and an LGBTQI+ equal rights activist.
