Dear Advisory Group,

Welcome to the advance copy of the first edition of The Ed Greenwood Group Full Micro-Catalog and Project Timeline. This document contains the current novels and games under contract; the artisanal and derivative works in progress as well as all other planned projects, formats, companies, settings, etc… currently under consideration.

This is an unedited, un-proofed document that has been prepared in order to gain input from members of the Advisory Group. After we gather your thoughts, the document will be prepared for the Creatives and we shall allow for their input before parts of this go live to the general public via the TEGG e-magazine and portal to all things Greenwood: Onder Librum starting in July, 2015.

We look forward to your thoughts and thank you again for your time.

~Ed & the minions

Hellmaw (2105):

  • Hellmaw’s first story arc begins 31st October, 2015 and ends 31st October, 2017 when the 2nd story arc begins and for which authors are already reserving publication slots. 5 brand new dæmons will kick off the 2nd arc.
  • The 3rd and 4th story arc are in the plotting stages and we hope to partner with another publishing firm to embed the 3rd story arc within the 2nd one. More on that in a few weeks.
  • Search is on for the right Creative(s) to initialize the Hellmaw high-school stories with dæmon Joey as the main lead of the tales. This project is geared towards a television riff.
  • Greenwood’s first Hellmaw title, Your World is Doomed, will be launched in Toronto, details below.
  • Setting preview at GenCon 2016; launch at Gamehole Con 2015.
  • The use of the diphthong character æ (ash) as in dæmon vs daemon or demon needs discussion. Might this affect existing listing, retail and other systems?
  • Guess which two projects cover every Greenwood Group in-house format…
  • Dæmon names are place-holders only. Some will be kept, others not.
