Arbor Productions and Phipps Studios Part Ways

#1 Postby Arbor_Productions » Mon Dec 08, 2008 8:53 pm

Arbor Productions and Phipps Studios have decided to part ways and pursue all business endeavors individually.

Phipps Studios, the creators and producers of the upcoming Winterweir and Black Hole product lines, have such a vast and deep publishing schedule, that in the end we just felt they would best be served by releasing the products under their own logo. In the RPG industry, it’s vitally important that companies are able to establish their own brand awareness clearly and rapidly, and we just felt that Phipps Studios would be better served by establishing their logo and brand name from the start. Our biggest fear was hurting their viability as we focused on releasing our own, growing product lines.

We encourage everyone to show your continued support to Phipps Studios. Charles Phipps is a great guy, very creative, and is going to bring Savage fans a lot of good times ahead.

Arbor Productions is a great studio and I have nothing but praise for their professionalism and skill at handling all the day to day grind of bureaucracy. I want to thank them for all they've done and hope that all of their products are as successful as they deserve to be (which is very).

There's some issues like getting an SW license but this shouldn't delay production of Winterweir all that much. Black Hole will remain unchanged as well.

Streets of Frenzy may be changed as part of the line-up though.

That's good to hear, Charles. Both Arbor Productions and Phipps Studios will be getting some of my hard earned dollars in the future.

The license issue is now handled (thanks Shane!) and everything is back on schedule.

We'll be having an upcoming announcement about a new product replacing another for 2009 in the coming month.

We'll be getting our webpage up soon enough, though it'll be difficult to compete with our previous one, it's our intent to have the same journals posted earlier available plus new ones.

The Winterweir, Black Hole, and our Soon to be Announced New Product's Plot Point Campaigns will be downloaded from our webpage as well.
