Back in 2014 Dream Pod 9 licensed Arkrite Press LLC, a new company starter by Jason Dickerson and Greg Perkins (both former DP9 team members) to develop a new edition of the Heavy Gear RPG. Both have full time jobs, which have become more demanding as the years went by, and they have not been able to put the time required into the Arkrite Press project. So after talking it over they have decided to return the Heavy Gear RPG license to Dream Pod 9 and let us work on developing a new edition in the future. You can read their release in the image we made of the pdf they sent us below.
We thank Jason and Greg for their hard work over the years, and understand how hard it is to take a project from concept to final product.
Dream Pod 9 wants to see a new edition of the Heavy Gear RPG, but has no plans to license it to another company in the future. We’ll instead start working on it in the background with the help of a few dedicated fans and once its getting close to completion do a Kickstarter to pay for printing, writing, layout, and artwork costs.
