April 1, 2004: Girl Genius!

A Gaslamp Fantasy with Adventure, Romance, and Mad Science!

Steve Jackson Games is delighted to announce that a 2005 release will be the Girl Genius RPG, set in the world created by Phil and Kaja Foglio in their Girl Genius comics and graphic novels.

To be written by Kaja Foglio (assisted by Michelle Barrett on the crunchy bits), and illustrated by Phil and Kaja Foglio, the Girl Genius RPG will be a complete, self-contained gamebook using the Fourth Edition GURPS rules. It will include complete information on the steampunk world of Transylvania Polygnostic, rules for creating "Sparks," Jägermonsters, and other unique character types . . . and, of course, Sparky technology (clanks! giant clanks! giant clanks with guns!) and bio-tech (MONSTERS!).

Like other Fourth Edition GURPS books, this will be a hardback with full-color illustration throughout.

Adventure with Agatha Heterodyne and her motley crew . . . or create your own heroic Sparks to deal with the wonders and menaces of a world ruled by Mad Science!

There will be more news as it develops. In the meantime, if you haven't yet discovered Girl Genius, visit the Studio Foglio site and see what you've been missing. And yes, we do carry the graphic novels in Warehouse 23!
