Hello folks!

When we announced last year (2017) that we were making changes to Ragnarok Publications, the intent was to maintain Ragnarok as an imprint of Outland Entertainment. But as we started to move forward, it became more and more obvious that there was just too much negative press associated with Ragnarok. None of which really had anything to do with the current team behind the company as it stands.

So, rather than try to continue publishing with one arm tied behind our back, we’ve made the decision to absorb Ragnarok into Outland. It also helps to bring everything under one banner in terms of management and production.

We’ll be maintaining these titles from the Ragnarok catalog –

  • Blackguards: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues;
  • Genius Loci: Tales of the Spirit of Place;
  • Hath No Fury: Tales of Strong Women;
  • Kaiju Rising: Age of Monsters;
  • Mech: Age of Steel;
  • Neverland’s Library.

We’ll also be maintaining our distribution relationship with Independent Publishers Group (IPG). We love working with them and they have been more than supportive with all the changes we’ve made.

Moving forward, we’ll be taking on projects that we intend to develop into trans-media IP (intellectual property). Meaning, before we take on a project, we’ll be looking at how we can develop it into fiction, comics, and games, or some combination of those three items. It’s a slightly different approach than Ragnarok had previously, but we have a pretty extensive background not only developing fiction (whether it’s anthologies, novels, or novellas), but developing comics and game projects through our creative services as well.

We also have a deep and abiding love for all things fiction, comics, and games!

So as 2018 progresses, we should have some fun announcements to make about the projects that are currently in development. Keep an ear to the ground and if you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page!

Thanks!
