After an incredibly successful Kickstarter and product delivery from Mythic Games and Monolith Edition, update #178 on the Mythic Battles: Pantheon Kickstarter has dropped a big bit of business news while also highlighting a taste of things to come.
The Monolith team wrote;
“Although our collaboration on Mythic Battles: Pantheon was a success, Monolith and Mythic Games jointly decided to bring it to an end.
This conclusion appeared obvious after a common reflection. It has been clear that, for the good of both companies, they must be free to fully commit themselves to their own product ranges, by deciding the entirety of their editorial and commercial policies.
That is why we came to an agreement on Monolith acquiring the rights for the Mythic Battles range (Pantheon, Ragnarök …) in full. From now on, we will take charge of the management of the whole range (development, marketing, communication, after-sales…).
We deeply believe in Mythic Battles, and we have at heart to expand the game and its community as we did for Conan. With this in mind, we have taken a number of resolutions whose application will be gradual:
- The planning of a reprint campaign for Mythic Battles: Pantheon this spring. The launch of the Ragnarök campaign in 2019.
- The immediate welcome of the English and French-speaking community on the website www.the-overlord.net and the publication of a set of free tools and graphic assets for Mythic Battles.
- The addition in the future compendiums (a series of free booklets gathering the best contributions of The Overlord community) of scenarios and articles for Mythic Battles.
- The creation of a FAQ. We have already started to gather the feedback and questions on various forums. A thread has been opened on that matter on www.the-overlord.net.
These resolutions are a long-term endeavor and commit us for a number of years, but true to development policy of our games, we will continue to make grow and enrich Mythic Battles.
We are truly happy to announce that, for Mythic Battles, the adventure is only beginning.”
It’s clearly only the start of an exciting time for Mythic Battles and the hints at Ragnarok are really enticing.
