WHAT IS AN RPG? I know there are a lot of Abney Park fans that don’t know what an RPG is. A RPG is a game, not a computer game (although there are RPG’s on the computer, this is not how they got their start, and not what this is) but an actual sit-around–table-with-living-people style game. In the case of this one, it comes in the form of a beautiful, full color book complete with maps, charts, and illustrations that detail the world of Abney Park that you’ve been hearing about in songs for all these years. Even if you’ve never played an RPG, if you’re a fan of Abney Park you’ll enjoy learning about the cultures, places, and peoples of this world.
AMAZING ARTWORK We have had amazing artists from all over the world contribute to this book. Artists from America, England, Germany, Norway, Turkey, and many other places have all been drawing and painting to create the unique steampunk-multi-culture feel of Abney Park’s Airship Pirates. Just this artwork alone is worth the cost. This will make a beautiful coffee table book.
FIRST LOOK AT THE WORLD Also, the game writers, Peter Cakebread and Ken Walton, have been doing an amazing job detailing the world of Abney Park. They studied the huge library of Abney Park songs, and read an advanced copy of the Abney Park novel The Wrath Of Fate, and then wrote like feverish deamons for months to fill in the gaps and create this first detailed look into a world thats been forming in my head, and the collective brains of Abney Park fans for nearly 20 years. (Songs like The Change Cage, and Cellophane Wings predate the band Abney Park, yet play a HUGE roll in this new world.)
Even if you never play the game, you will enjoy reading the detailed history of the world of Abney Park. Click here for more info.
