We’d like to welcome Ediciones conBarba, a Spanish-language game publisher, to the Bits & Mortar initiative! We love our international retailers, and are happy to expand our publisher roster to support them.
The folks from Autarch — publishers of Adventurer, Conqueror, King — have joined Bits & Mortar. Welcome aboard!
“Thanks for this service — because you’re offering the PDFs, my customer is buying reliably from me and running a game a couple of times a month, which has led to a few more purchases of the core books from me. I know that if he’d ordered online, none of this might have happened.”
– Pete Hurst, North Shore Comics
We love hearing this sort of thing from our retailer partners — or their customers.

ABOUT WILD TALENTS
Wild Talents is Arc Dream Publishing’s roleplaying game of superpowered suspense and drama. It features fast-playing rules for gritty, dangerous action; character development rules that build drama by focusing on conflicting motivations; incredibly flexible rules for developing any kind of superpower you want; and Kenneth Hite’s ingenious guidelines for creating new superheroic settings and new superheroic histories tailored to the kind of game you want to play.
Wild Talents is available in two formats: the stripped-down, black-and-white paperback Wild Talents Essential Edition, which includes all the rules for playing the game, and the full-color, hardback Wild Talents Second Edition, which adds Kenneth Hite’s guidelines for worldbuilding and an extensive alternate history of 20th century Earth. Both versions were developed by Arc Dream Publishing and are available to retail distribution from Cubicle 7 Entertainment.
