For some ungodly reason, there's been a new interest in Nin-Gonost.

People want some more stuff that every knows was in development.

Due to the unruly furball which was the company demise and discontinuation of the system, I really don't want to use the Nin-Gonost name.

If I periodically got some of the stuff together and made it available through some online POD place as expansions under the name "Fan-Gonost" (since at this point, I'm really just a fan as the company no longer exists), would anyone actually be interested?

I will NOT use any of the original art, nor the intended art that was made by Jeff Easley and never released.

NEW: Jeff Easley has granted permission to use his art.

I am extremely respectful of creative rights. On the other hand, the Core Rules are mine as was quite a bit of development that never hit the streets.

I'm thinking about primarily a lot of the cards that were to be added to the system, which included Combat Options, Items and and the Fortitude experience system. Sold almost as booster pack sized expansions with the rules on one of the cards probably, or possibly a little tuck box expansion.

The Campaign set additional rules might make for a small booklet and maybe the campaigns themselves.

I make absolutely no guarantee as to actually being able to have the time to do these things or to a release schedule.

Think of this as one of those wargame style preorder things.

If at least 10 individuals show interest in this thread, I will start considering how to actually pursue this. Thats's not 10 posts by the same 2 guys (ahem John and Brett). 10 different people.

In fact, just to not have to keep tally, if you would actually be interested in eventually dropping $5-$10 (I guess) on a few expansions now and then, thumb this post. Not just "hey that's cool", but really going and buying and using the stuff.

If we hit 10+, I'll do further research.

Yeah, there's not a whole lot of response here, which means it would be a whole lot of work for very little reason...

It took 3 months. The amount of manhours it would take to format and submit the stuff would be way to much for 11 half hearted fans to support.

Too bad
But obviously you shouldn't waste your time for only a handful of people.
Sad but true.

My base set arrived recently and I really like the dice:



Any chance there's going to be something small?

They're beautiful but a huge component of the cost.

There's actually some overlap between the numbers on melee and ranged, and I would have combined them into a single dice string to rediuce cost and made their spread different on the ends (8,9,11,12,14) just for fun if I had the ability to do a complete redesign.

I wish someone will give you this chance one day!
Is there still/was there ever really a patent on the board sections? IMHO they are the coolest components ever. So they should be in a remake

Hi Paul, really liked your work on this game. I was cataloging my games a few weeks ago and I keep that game close hold in my closet but it's the first time my wife saw the box opened and she commented on the beautiful components. Looks like I will explaining the game to her shortly and get it on the table again. Thanks for your work!

Funny Marty! My significant other saw the game over the Holidays and really was interested. I had a couple of Minis that still needed painting (doubles of what I had) so I had her try her hand at painting and playing the game. I have a hooked fan now!!!!

Hi John, that's great the wife is into painting a few figures. I did some of mine over a weekend many moons ago. I am not up to the painting standards you see displayed on the geek, but the splash of color still does help. Happy gaming in Nin gonost land.

Wish I saw this earlier. I love Nin-Gonost and have wished for further releases. Hopefully someday it may return.
