GUEST: FRANK MENTZER
Worlds of Empyrea RPG fantasy setting Kickstarter:
From Frank’s Kickstarter profile:
Frank was at TSR and New Infinities in the 1980s, working closely with founder Gary Gygax as his Aide, co-author, and friend. Frank is best known for the D&D “Red Box” line of 5 boxed sets (1983-89) and their Rules Compendium, plus Temple of Elemental Evil, Book of Marvelous Magic, and the Cyborg Commando RPG (all with Gary), 2001: A Space Odyssey, and dozens of other products.
In 2012 Frank created Eldritch Enterprises with Jim Ward, Tim Kask, and Chris Clark. Medical and financial issues kept Eldritch small, and it is now sleeping, awaiting a new era. Its members continue to write and publish games independently.
Loxley inc was created in 2016 to package all of Frank’s creative ideas. As a Design House, Loxley plans to produce product for manufacturers to print and distribute to the gaming industry.
