Everything is Asmodee: creating Gloomhaven novels

October 21, 2020 - 10:26pm

Asmodee Entertainment has a fiction division called Aconyte Books. They create novels set in the worlds of popular board games, as well as other intellectual properties. Their next announced project is a series of Gloomhaven novels through a multi-year agreement with Isaac Childres and Cephalofair Games. The settings explored also will include Frosthaven, the upcoming sequel to Gloomhaven. These projects are not reported to recreate the narrative events of the board games, rather they will dive into the lore of the settings to tell new stories. The first Gloomhaven novel is scheduled to release in summer 2021. Check out the full press release

Aconyte Books has board game novels beyond the 'Havens. Their announced releases include books set in the board game universes of Twilight Imperium, Descent, Arkham Horror, Keyforge, Legend of the Five Rings, as well as the Marvel comics universe.
