Outland Entertainment to bring the VIKINGVERSE to digital life with Roll20 

New virtual tabletop version of When the Wolf Comes, an RPG based on Ian Stuart Sharpe’s Vikingverse, is underway

Kansas City, Missouri – July 27, 2022- Outland Entertainment today announced that it is bringing its newly Kickstarted roleplaying game, When the Wolf Comes, to life on Roll20, the largest platform for free online roleplaying.

Roll20 is the all-in-one solution for game night, with a virtual tabletop that connects over ten million players and GMs. The browser-based platform allows players & GMs to easily create characters, organize and play games, purchase content, find players, and customize stories for their groups. Earlier this month, Roll20 and OneBookShelf announced their plans to join forces, bringing together two digital leaders in the tabletop space, and enabling GMs and players to step into games immediately, all in one place.

Outland Entertainment already delivers creator-owned comics, graphic novels, tabletop and roleplaying games across many forms of media. These Worlds of new ideas —fantasies, space operas, alternate histories, and ideas even farther afield—invite readers to explore and play in unique settings.

Jeremy Mohler, Publisher at Outland Entertainment said, “It is a natural move for Outland to explore this exciting and popular digital frontier. We’re delighted to work with Roll20 and an extremely talented group of people at Sigil Entertainment to bring this project to life. Fans everywhere will benefit from an exciting new interactive take on our Worlds, and what better way to start than with a Viking voyage.”

Todd Gizzi, Content Manager at Roll20 said, “It’s very exciting to see fresh new content on the platform. Fans are always hungry for new games, and When the Wolf Comes offers something visually compelling, mechanically superb and brutally Norse!”

Creator Ian Stuart Sharpe added, "Virtual tabletops really open up a world of gaming opportunities. I’ve been a heavy user of Roll20 ever since the pandemic made traditional pizza and dice gatherings impossible, and now there is no turning back. It’s the perfect place to stage Ragnarok! So, as they say in Old Norse Kasta þú tveggja tigu teningi!"

When The Wolf Comes is a game of storytelling, heroism, and epic struggle set during a reimagined Norse End of Days. A complete stand alone roleplaying game, the When The Wolf Comes Compendium provides everything you need to create and play characters, form warbands in pursuit of fame and plunder, and tell sci-fi sagas with your friends. The Kickstarter for the game, which is already over 200% funded, closes on August 11th. Potential backers can find more information on the campaign page.
