If you've played Betrayal at Krondor, you're probably familiar with the name of Neal Hallford as chief game designer and writer in that context.
There are still rights issues preventing the making of a true BaK sequel (the story was initially envisioned as a two-parter, and Return to Krondor and Betrayal in Antara both have absolutely nothing to do with that original plan). However, he's now talking about the possibility of a game very much like BaK, if not set in Midkemia. Where we come in is signing the petition to indicate sufficient support, and spreading the word so that the project might be financially aided via Kickstarter, but we're still very much at the 'brainstorming if this will even work' phase.

Alright folks, previously I've had a handful of people who have said they'd be "in" for a sequel to Krondor. As I explained before, the rights to Midkemia are tied up for the foreseeable future, but there's nothing that prevents us from building the spiritual sequel. Before we start down the daisy path of doing a Kickstarter campaign, I first need to know if you're in. I mean REALLY in to make this happen. It's a lot of work to build a game, and it's a commitment of more than a year of my life to make it happen. So this is what I want you to do.
Today I've set up a petition. If we gather the signatures of more than 5,000 people who are willing to say that their will either personally donate or help raise $200 apiece, we'll launch our Kickstarter to make it happen. Simple as that. Right now no one is on the hook for money, just going out and evangelizing to show us how much you loved that original game.
For now, it's in your hands. Share the hell out of it if you're interested. ...
