Fans of Symbaroum have been greeted today by the news that Järnringen and Free League have merged – bring Coriolis, Forbidden Lands, Mutant: Year Zero, Tales from the Loop and Symbaroum under the same banner. The finer details of transition will work out over the remainder of the year, but in the moment you can now find all Symbaroum product in the Free League store.
If you have half-an-hour to spare, listen to Victory Condition Gaming’s interview with Tomas Härenstam and Mattias Johnsson Haake about the long gestation of the merger, the benefits to both companies of shared resources, and what the future holds.
The press release:
The rumors are true – Free League Publishing and Team Järnringen will become one! The two teams are already working together, with former Järnringen members involved in current Free League projects, and vice versa.
To the combined company, which will keep the name Free League Publishing, Team Järnringen brings the acclaimed fantasy RPG Symbaroum, which will now become part of our line-up of award-winning games such as Mutant: Year Zero, Coriolis – The Third Horizon, and Tales from the Loop, as well as the upcoming RPG Forbidden Lands and Crusader Kings – The Board Game.
Fans and gamers of Free League and Järnringen games should not experience any immediate impact from this merger. All existing game lines will continue as planned, as well as the publishing of art books and literature. In addition, a number of new game projects are being planned for 2019.
