As of December 1 , Gypsy Knights Games will be changing our name to Independence Games. This has been something which has been a long time in the making but we are finally ready to pull the trigger on it.
There are several reasons for this change. First and foremost is that I've been dissatisfied with the name for a few years now and I didn't feel that it properly portrayed my company and what it was doing. I feel that Independence Games does a better job of giving the right impression and this is the primary reason that the change is being made.
The change will be a slow process. Many of the covers for books will retain the GKG name on them for a while but new products will bear the Independence Games name.
From the Company Website:
The Gypsy Knights are a gaming club based in the southeast United States. The club started around a game of Traveller at a hobby shop in Chattanooga, Tennessee called The Royal Tiger in 1991. The group formed the core of the crew of the Merchant Ship Gypsy Rose. At the end of that campaign, one of the group, Alan Mullican, coined the name "Gypsy Knights". It stuck.
Since then the group has spread out across the southeast US, played many other games and campaigns, and has thrown some fantastic parties at several conventions.
Now we have moved into a new phase, that of creating products from some of those Traveller campaigns over the years. Our goal is to provide the "spark" for the imagination of a Referee, who can then go on to carry that flame to his gaming group. We hope our products perform this task.
