Press Release – Cartographer Alyssa Faden Joins The Creative Team Making The Dragon Kings Trans-media Game World
LAS VEGAS, NV – July 9, 2013 – The trans-media Dragon Kings project announces today that game industry cartographer Alyssa Faden will be making the maps depicting the new, fantasy role-playing game world.
“Alyssa Faden is a really gifted map maker,” says project lead Timothy Brown. “Her work is really magnificent and draws you into the world. I think we’re fortunate to have a talent like Alyssa creating the all-important world maps.”
Alyssa is a highly-sought-after cartographer, having recently contributed to Postworld Games’ King for a Day, Lesser Gnome’s Whisper & Venom boxed set adventure, and her own successful project Torn Armor. She is the only cartographer on the Dragon Kings team, joining artists Gerald Brom and Tom Baxa. Former Queensrÿche guitarist Mike Stone was announced last week as the Dragon Kings project’s lead musician and songwriter.
“When Timothy Brown approached me to create the maps for Dragon Kings, I nearly fell out of my seat,” adds Alyssa Faden. “I am a huge admirer of his work and have been since I purchased the Dark Sun boxed set many, many moons ago. Knowing who else is on the team is a humbling experience and I am extremely excited to be part of this project.”

About Dragon Kings
Dragon Kings is Timothy Brown’s ‘spiritual successor’ to his award-winning Dark Sun role-playing universe, co-designed with author Troy Denning and artist Gerald Brom for the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game. Dragon Kings is a new fantasy game world conceived and presented in fiction, art, and music simultaneously. The project will be crowd sourced and eventually expand beyond role-playing and music into comics, video, and computer games. The product launch envisions a hardbound game book, an art-intensive album-sized world gazetteer and lyrics booklet, and a full-length progressive rock CD.
