    Probably.. But I am also curious..They are well known for High quality Board Games, and I will admit their RPGs are also good quality. I think though that they will as their RPGs are more one shot (Meaning little support beyond the first book) Except MIdnight and THey let that one sit. I do know they were looking to make a Midnight movie at one time Ive seen some recordings but nothing beyond that.

    Then again, a small business that publishes follow-ons for a product that doesn't do so well will quickly bankrupt itself. My impression was that Fireborn was stillborn; their d20 products didn't really catch on either, besides Midnight (and, in a way Grimm), perhaps due to the d20 glut.

    While I don't know the specific timeline for Midnight releases, I'd guess that a) quality takes time, and b) the upcoming 4e rules has thrown a spanner in the works of many d20-based companies.

    I don't know..WOTC still holds something like an 80% Market Share in the industry... with WW Only ever able to get to about 20% give or take in the 1990s, so I doubt they are worried
