Humanity has fallen in love with stories since its earliest days. Stories teach us new ways to think, to live and to love in the world. Legends teach lessons and myths provide explanations for the mysteries we are faced with. Societies across the globe revered those who could tell stories and open new ways of life for their people. Be they Bards, Skalds, Rhapsodos or Griots, skilled storytellers could bring wonder and wisdom to those in need. It is a pleasure to assist in this modern form of the ancient art, through roleplaying games.
Genesis of Legend Publishing was founded in the summer of 2009 as a small independent press for Roleplaying Games. We actively support the independent publishing movement and creator-owned games. You can read about our guiding principles explained on the page titled “Code of Conduct“. We are located in the fair city of Ottawa-Gatineau, Canada.
Every good RPG publishing house needs a slew of professionals; a line developer, a writer, a game tester, an editor, an illustrator, a layout artist, a public relations manager and a barista. That last role is the most important one by the way. Fortunately for us, we found the one person crazy enough to fill all of these roles simultaneously for Genesis of Legend Publishing.
